Ellen DeGeneres gives Matt Bomer costume suggestions for 'Magic Mike 2' -- VIDEO

Matt Bomer appears on The Ellen DeGeneres Show today to promote his new HBO film, The Normal Heart – but it’s another movie, Magic Mike, that ends up stealing the spotlight (as strippers tend to do).

As soon as DeGeneres says those two little words, conjuring images of hot men in Speedos, the ladies in the audience start losing their minds. She asks Bomer — who played a dancer in the film loosely based on co-star Channing Tatum’s experience as a stripper – for scoop on Magic Mike 2.

“My understanding is it’s gonna start this fall,” Bomer says. “And I think Channing announced recently that it’s about… it’s kind of a road trip film that leads to a stripper convention.” (This, of course, leads to plenty of “woooos!” from the audience.) READ FULL STORY

Mila Kunis talks Ashton Kutcher, pregnancy on 'Ellen' -- VIDEO

Mila Kunis is having all the stereotypical pregnancy cravings, including an obsession with… sauerkraut?

In Friday’s episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Kunis spoke to DeGeneres about her pregnancy and fiancé Ashton Kutcher, who we’ve awarded Fiancé of the Year: The Two and a Half Men star stocked the couple’s second fridge with “weird food” when they found out Kunis was pregnant in case she ever had an intense craving. And, apparently, it’s proven useful — when Kunis recently told him, “I need a pickle,” Kutcher disappeared for a moment before coming back with “the most amazing dill pickle of all time.” Now that’s love.

Michelle Obama, Reese Witherspoon, and more join #BringBackOurGirls campaign

It’s been nearly a month since hundreds of Nigerian schoolgirls were kidnapped by the terrorist group Boko Haram, and now celebrities are using their star power to help raise awareness of these women’s plight — and, hopefully, to help get them back home.

With the hashtag #BringBackOurGirls, notable figures such as Michelle Obama, Reese Witherspoon, and Jessica Biel are using social media to spread the word and offer support for the girls and their families.  READ FULL STORY

Ellen Page talks coming out on 'Ellen': 'I did not anticipate just how happy I would feel' -- VIDEO

Back in February, Ellen Page told the world she was gay during a speech at the inaugural “Time to THRIVE” conference in Las Vegas. On Thursday, May 1, the actress went on Ellen to talk about the experience, calling it “the most nervous I’ve ever been in my life.”

But looking back, Page said she was ready. “I knew I would be a happier person … [because] I was carrying around a tremendous amount of shame and guilt for not being out,” she said. She also thanked Ellen for doing the same thing in a time when it was “much harder and scarier.”

Mary-Kate and Ashley talk first kisses and singing skills on 'Ellen' -- VIDEO

Spent your youth trying to decide whether you were a Mary-Kate or an Ashley? (My hand is raised.) If so, Ellen DeGeneres has a treat for you (read: us).

In an episode of Ellen that airs today, DeGeneres hands each Olsen twin a double-sided paddle. One side reads “her;” the other, “me.” DeGeneres proceeds to ask the twins questions like, “who’s messier?” (both are messy) and “who can talk their way out of a parking ticket?” (Mary-Kate). Despite their childhood singing careers, though, both refuse to tell Ellen which of them is the better singer. As a matter of fact, admits Ashley, “I don’t think we’re very good singers.” Guess we won’t be hearing an updated version of classic “Gimme Pizza” anytime soon.

Ellen DeGeneres gives sample 'Late Show' monologue -- VIDEO

Ellen DeGeneres may be a hilarious host for daytime TV and the Oscars — but late night? Maybe not so much.

Since David Letterman announced that he’s retiring in 2015, speculation has swirled about who might replace him on the Late Show — and Ellen’s name has always been near the top of the list. So in Thursday’s episode of Ellen, DeGeneres addresses the rumors by giving us a taste of what her late night monologues might be like. (She also kind of shut down the idea that she might take over for Dave: “I am flattered, but I really love doing my daytime show,” DeGeneres said, “But I feel like you don’t really know if you’re good until you try it.”)

President Obama talks 'Scandal,' 'House of Cards,' and healthcare on 'Ellen' -- VIDEO

President Barack Obama earned two titles November 6, 2012: President, and the man behind the most re-tweeted tweet of all time. But, as we now know, Ellen DeGeneres and company broke that record at this year’s Oscars with their celeb-filled selfie that now holds that title. “I thought it was a pretty cheap stunt myself,” Obama told Ellen when she rubbed it in his face. At least he’s still President?

Obama went on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in an episode airing Thursday to continue his media tour promoting healthcare to young people — one past stop includes Zach Galifianakis’ Between Two Ferns. But Obama didn’t only talk healthcare: We also got to hear his thoughts on his two daughters getting tattoos.

Kate Winslet explains why she named her son Bear Blaze -- VIDEO

This past December, Kate Winslet and husband Ned Rocknroll (more on that name later) welcomed a new baby boy into the world: Bear Blaze Winslet. So when the actress went on Ellen yesterday — for an interview that will air today — Ellen DeGeneres naturally asked how Winslet came up with that amazing name.

“A friend of mine when I was younger was nicknamed Bear, and I had just always really loved it,” Winslet explained. “He was everyone’s shoulder to cry on, he was a big bear hug, he was just this great figure in my life. And I had just always remembered it.”

Oscars 2014: Pizza guy gets a hefty tip on 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show' -- VIDEO

Pizza delivery guy Edgar had a good Sunday night. He got to deliver pizza to the Oscars and received a $1,000 tip. Sorry, Lupita, but it looks like Edgar was the real winner last night.

Edgar, co-owner of pizzeria Big Mama’s & Papa’s, appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Monday to talk about his surprise visit to the Oscars. Apparently, he was told he was going to deliver pizza to some writers and was shocked when DeGeneres led him to the stage, where he looked out at the huge audience and offered an adorable “hello!”

As if going on an unexpected trip to the Oscars and getting a huge tip wasn’t enough, Edgar also got to meet his dream lady: Julia Roberts, who he served a slice of pizza to. See, kids, dreams do come true!

DeGeneres ended the interview by pulling out Pharrell’s hat filled with money and telling Edgar she ended up collecting around $600 from the audience for his tip. Then she pulled out $400 from her pocket and handed the wad of cash to a laughing Edgar. So, how do we break into the pizza delivery business?
