Andrew Garfield belly dances for charity -- VIDEO

If only Spider-Man could dance his way out of the The Lizard’s clutches.

Andrew Garfield swung by Ellen — the episode airs today — debuting some new facial hair (Yay? Nay? Undecided?), as well as some new, not-Spidey-affiliated moves (Definitely yay!).

After talking about the planned sequel to Amazing Spider-Man, Garfield got down…to charity work. In support of Worldwide Orphans, Garfield agreed to perform various dance moves. Each correct dance in :45 seconds raised $1000 for WWO.

The best part is that even after the buzzer rang, Garfield kept going: There are still dances to perform and money to raise! And it’s a good thing he can’t be tamed: Without him powering on, we never would have gotten to see his 100% commitment to belly dancing — shirt lifting included. READ FULL STORY

Ellen DeGeneres is Sofia Vergara for Halloween -- VIDEO

Ladies and gentlemen, we have the celebrity Halloween costume to beat.

In the wake of Hurricane Sandy’s devastation, the Today show canceled its annual Halloween showcase. But Ellen DeGeneres stepped up to the laughter plate today, showing her “cheeky” costume on this afternoon’s episode of Ellen: Sofia Vergara. Specifically, Vergara’s infamous Emmy dress that split open mid-ceremony, revealing (a bit NSFW) more than she bargained for.

“Happy Halloween. As you can see I put my pumpkins out,” DeGeneres said, gesturing to the fake chest spilling out of her dress. Mimicking Vergara’s accent, DeGeneres proceeded to explain that she thought Vergara’s voice was a bit overdone. “I get so much work with this fake accent,” DeGeneres declared.

But never fear that the host was being mean – mid-mocking, the real Vergara showed up, and she couldn’t hold back a smile. Despite trying to look angry, the Modern Family actress got the last laugh: “Your a** looks huge,” Vergara said.

Taylor Swift on 'Ellen': Which ex still rings her bell? -- VIDEO

Taylor Swift has a message for John Mayer, Taylor Lautner, Jake Gyllenhaal and more: Don’t send her angry emails.

Swift is on Ellen this afternoon, and in the preview clip below, she talks about trying to maintain “a shred of dignity” by not specifically naming names on songs about ex-boyfriends – because otherwise they’ll send her angry emails. Ellen DeGeneres teased her for awhile about Zac Efron – the two sang a very cute duet together when Swift was last on the program – but Swift insists they never dated, like ever. She was similarly tight-lipped about who “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” was about.

DeGeneres tried to solve the mystery, handing Swift a bell and telling her to ring it when the picture of the guy it’s about came up. She then showed pics of Joe Jonas, Justin Bieber, Mayer and others, but Swift remained silent.

Swift got introspective after many pictures, wondering what so many photos said about the length of her relationships. “There’s never been two guys on the screen two visits in a row,” she said. “It’s sad.”

She should write a song about it.

Check out the interrogation – complete with some telling silence after Cory Monteith’s picture – below: READ FULL STORY

Ellen DeGeneres on Twain Prize: 'Why didn't I get this sooner?'

Some of the nation’s top comedians hailed Ellen DeGeneres as a trailblazer Monday night as she received the nation’s highest humor prize.

The Kennedy Center is awarding DeGeneres the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor. The show will be broadcast Oct. 30 on PBS stations.

“Thanks to everyone at PBS. I am so happy to be part of your farewell season,” DeGeneres joked in accepting the prize and taking a jab at Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s plans to stop funding public broadcasting.

On the red carpet before the show, DeGeneres said she doesn’t see herself as political with her comedy, though, even though she’s been a trailblazer.

“I just want to make people happy and make people laugh,” she said. READ FULL STORY

Rebel Wilson, Ellen DeGeneres rap 'Shoop': 'I like 'em real wild' -- VIDEO

Rebel Wilson has been chatting up a storm on late night. First, there was that whole thing where she admitted to learning American English from Here Comes Honey Boo Boo. Then, she terrorized Walter White himself on The Tonight Show. Now she’s joined Ellen DeGeneres for a badass rendition of Salt-N-Pepa’s “Shoop.”

While visiting Ellen to promote her “aca-awesome” movie Pitch Perfect, Wilson confessed that she’d always wanted to rap with DeGeneres. “I did once have a dream that I rapped with you,” the Australian actress said. “Like a double act. I had a great act with my sister. She’s kind of fallen off the wagon… Gotten a job, she’s not so gangster any more. I had a dream that I just rapped with you and the audience just went crazy.”

At that, the audience started to clap, prompting Wilson to declare laughingly, “I think they want us to do something.” What ensued was a choreographed sequence of sheer fabulousness. Check it out below: READ FULL STORY

Leonardo DiCaprio, Selena Gomez, Ellen DeGeneres want you to 'Vote 4 Stuff' -- VIDEO

Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Amanda Seyfried. Edward Norton. Zac Efron. Tobey Maguire? No, it’s not an overstuffed ensemble comedy from the guys who brought you Martin Luther King Day — it’s a new PSA for Vote4Stuff, a nonpartisan campaign created by Maguire and his buddy Leonardo DiCaprio. Eat your heart out, Rock the Vote!

The video starts out silly — vote for “gays in the military, exclusively!” says Sarah Silverman; “I vote yes on cats. I know they’re up to something, but I like them,” counters Benicio Del Toro — but eventually gets serious. These celebs want us regular Joes and Janes to make short videos about the electoral issues we care about, some of which will be incorporated into the Vote4Stuff campaign later this month. It’ll be tough for any of those normal people-created clips to be as amusing as this one — but if you’re up for the challenge, you can learn more about Vote4Stuff on Facebook. In the meantime, let’s argue about which star’s fake political issue is the funniest:

Even a hitmaker like Britney Spears isn’t immune to the wacky allure of Psy’s “Gangnam Style.” Spears is on record as a fan of the Korean star’s catchy tune and sick dance moves — something that Ellen DeGeneres didn’t miss when the new X Factor judge visited Ellen yesterday afternoon. (Side note: Remember when Ellen was an American Idol judge?)

Soon enough, the host pulled out Psy himself, who proceeded to teach Ellen and Britney how to Dougie the finer points of Gangnam Style. The main takeaway: “Dress classy, and dance cheesy.” Done and done!

By gamely dancing along, Spears proved that she still knows how to move — even in five-inch heels. Check her out:
