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

Just 24 short years ago, eminent comedienne and Hollywood muse Emma Stone came into the world. Since then, the sometimes-blonde, sometimes-redhead, always-adorable starlet has consistently graced the movie world with her impeccable comic timing and that irresistibly smoky voice.

On the scene: Braving the waterworks at the Stand Up to Cancer telethon

They wanted to move us. And oh, did they know how.

The highlight of the Stand Up to Cancer telethon helmed by Gwyneth Paltrow and a cast of A-list celebrities Friday at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles was Taylor Swift’s ode to a cancer victim, a 3-year-old boy named Ronan.

If you’re not getting emotional yet, Swift did it for you. The 22-year-old country singer struggled to hold back tears as she sang the touching ballad she wrote after reading a mom’s blog about losing her little boy to neuroblastoma last year. The song begins, “I remember your bare feet down the hallway, I remember your little laugh…”

The audience of Hollywood elite, cancer survivors, and fans choked up as they listened to this and other testimonies aimed at inspiring donors to give funds to the Stand Up to Cancer organization.

Ben Affleck, Lea Michele, Will.i.am, other celebs honored at Do Something Awards

Celebrities and fans gathered at Santa Monica Airport on Sunday to celebrate “the do-ers” – that is, people who get out there and do something good for others, which includes both celebs and not-quite-as-famous young adults alike. The event was the annual Do Something Awards, organized by DoSomething.org and set to air on VH1 this Tuesday.

The Do Something Awards recognize a handful of celebrities for their charitable and activist efforts, along with five young adults under age 25 for their community service. This year Katia Gomez, 24, took home the Do Something Award – along with a $100,000 grant – for creating Educate2Envision, which provides education for young citizens of Honduras.

Among the celebrity winners were Ben Affleck, Will.i.am, Kristen Bell and Joel McHale, for the awards that DoSomething.org invited fans to vote upon online. READ FULL STORY

President George Clooney?

A poll this week found that 35 percent of men considered Clooney the celebrity best fit for the presidency. Rapper Jay-Z trailed behind with 20 percent of the vote (maybe he could run for VP?). Even more women — 46 percent –picked Clooney, but New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was their runner-up with 27 percent.

The poll, from lifestyle sites AskMen.com and TrèsSugar.com, asked men and women about entertainment and politics to compile the ”great male” and ”great female survey,” respectively. When asked about real politicians, 79 percent of men thought President Barack Obama was the presidential nominee with the most wingman potential. Obama was also chosen by both men and women as the manliest politician. Really? Did anybody watch Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Slayer?

When asked ”which male public figure are you most tired of hearing about?” 67 percent of men said Justin Bieber. LeBron James and Kanye West tied for second place. With 62 percent of the vote, Kim Kardashian was the female public figure of choice in the same category. It’s only fitting that Kardashian has been linked to Bieber and West, and that James and West are (if you believe Google image search) besties. Women agreed that they’ve had enough of Bieber and Kardashian.

Men selected Emma Stone as the female celebrity they wanted their girlfriends to emulate (51 percent). The nine percent of men who weren’t tired of hearing about her voted for Kardashian.

In a close race, the band the Black Keys was named the ”next Michael Jackson” (33 percent). Keeping with the contradictory results, 23 percent picked Justin Bieber, who came in third after Usher.

PopWatch Planner: Plenty of fireworks with 'Spider-Man' and 'The Walking Dead'

Happy Fourth of July Weekend, Part I. It remains to be seen whether July 4 falling on a Wednesday is the best or worst possible scenario for festivities celebrating our nation’s 236th birthday. But at least we have a returning hero who wears the red, white, and (black and) blue on his sleeve. Spider-Man swings back into action after disappearing for… well, only five years. Andrew Garfield might be a Brit, but he was born in Los Angeles, so his Spidey is more All-American that the current Batman and upcoming Superman. U – S – A! U – S – A!!

Sunday, July 1
Euro 2012 final, Spain vs. Italy, ESPN, 2:45 ET p.m.

The most-watched sporting event this weekend won’t be at Yankee Stadium or the grass courts at Wimbledon. It will be a soccer match played in Ukraine, where two powerhouses square off for the European championship. READ FULL STORY

On the scene: Andrew Garfield is a good sport for Worldwide Orphans

As shown in a recent video, Andrew Garfield is pretty handy with a ball. So it was a natural fit when the Amazing Spider-Man star announced he would serve as the Ambassador of Sport for the Worldwide Orphans Foundation (WWO). Donning pipe cleaner mock-ups of the blue spectacles worn by WWO founder Dr. Jane Aronson, Garfield explained that he was drawn to the Foundation after recently becoming an uncle. Seeing the love and opportunities his brother’s twin sons had, he wanted to give the same chance to children all over the world. “Jane and I are trying to offer these kids… a normal, necessary outlet to be physical,” said Garfield.
