J-Lo, her kids on celebrity

Kids understand far more about our lives than we realize.

So Jennifer Lopez, 44, has realized: Her li'l ones know she's different, famous.

"They're becoming very aware" that their parents are celebs, J-Lo says of 6-year-old twins Emme and Max, her kids with her ex, Marc Anthony.

"They've seen me do shows on the road and notice that people like to sing along, take pictures," she tells USA Today.

Would J-Lo encourage the kids to pursue showbiz?

"This is what I know: If you're an artist, nobody's going to stop you," she said. "So I would support them. Would I want it for them? I don't know. It's a tough life."

Daniel Radcliffe on sobriety

"I would have benefited from not drinking as it was not making me as happy as I wanted to," Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe tells Britain's Sky Arts. Sober four years now, Radcliffe hit the bottle hard to shut out talk that he'd only ever be remembered as a child star. He was obsessed, he said, thinking, "What if they are all going to be right and will be laughing, and I will be consigned to a bunch of 'Where are they now?' lists?"

An Obama in Hollywood

The White House may be good enough for her parents, but Tinseltown's more the speed for Malia Obama.

"My first time," the source quotes Malia as saying. "This is a big deal!"

Miss USA: I'm a Nevada gal!

Miss USA Nia Sanchez, 24, who represented Nevada in the contest on Monday, denied she faked her state residency. We do know she once lived in California: She failed to win the Miss California USA crown three times in the past.

"I have lived in Nevada since fall of 2012," Sanchez said in a statement. She added that it's true she's lived all over the world, "including Germany, Hong Kong, and Abu Dhabi."
