GMA: Matthew McConaughey Gets Independent Spirit Award
Matthew McConaughey won an Independent Spirit Award for Best Supporting Actor in Magic Mike, in which he played a stripper.

GMA: Kristen Stewart Walks Red Carpet On Crutches
Kristen Stewart walked the red carpet of the Oscars on crutches. Her makeup artist reportedly said the Twilight star stepped on glass a few days before the Oscars. Photographers were able to get a few shots of her without the crutches and she didn’t use them when she presented with Daniel Radcliffe.
Lara Spencer noted that a certain vampire costar was nowhere to be seen with Kristen Stewart. She didn’t mention that Robert Pattinson might’ve just appeared absent because vampires have no reflection and in some vampire continuities, can’t be photographed. But that’s probably because Robert Pattinson has never been confirmed to be a vampire in real life.
