ABC/Rick Rowell(NEW YORK) -- Angelina Jolie doesn't want her son Maddox to forget his roots.

The A-lister recently took a trip to Cambodia, the site of her breakout movie Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, and the place where she adopted her eldest son in 2002, reports E! News.

This trip is the first of many. Jolie is set to begin her next directorial project, a film adaptation of Loung Ung's book First They Killed My Father: A Daughter of Cambodia. The film reveals how life was under the deadly regime of Khmer Rouge in the 1970s, in which millions were killed in a genocide.

"As Maddox and I prepare the film we will be side by side learning about his country," Jolie told reporters. "He is turning 14 next week and this is a very important time for him to understand who he is. He is my son but he is also a son of Cambodia. This is the time for our family to understand all that means to him and to us."

Shooting for the film will begin in November, according to E! The film is set to premiere on Netflix in 2016.

Photo by: Charles Sykes/Bravo(NEW YORK) -- When Kelly Ripa walked onstage for Thursday's episode Live with Kelly and Michael, viewers saw she had traded in her typical stilettos for a boot on one foot. The co-host explained the reason for the new look: she's broken her foot. 

"I was in a dance class like I typically, usually am and somebody had left a weight on the floor. Because usually what happens is, you do dancing, and then you do weights and then you put your weights back on your mat," she explained. "And somebody I guess either left [the weight] not on their mat or maybe kicked it when they were dancing. I don't know."

"All I know is I did a jump -- and in my mind I'm an incredible dancer, graceful as can be -- and I landed on the weight," she said, with the crowd gasping.

Ripa went on to explain that her husband, Mark Consuelos, was by her side when she checked into New York City's Hospital for Special Surgery Wednesday night to meet with doctors and find out how much damage she'd actually done.

"We found out that I have like four little bones that broke off," she said. "And [the doctor] said, 'The good news is it's in a way that it doesn't require surgery.' So that's great!"

Comedy Central(LOS ANGELES) -- Upcoming Daily Show host Trevor Noah faced TV critics Wednesday in Beverly Hills, and talked about the pressure of taking over for Jon Stewart.

Noah made one thing clear when asked about his transition from comedian to host of the Comedy Central program: "I’m not in the news business. I’m still in the comedy business, and that's the most important thing Jon Stewart left with me."

The show won't change, but he says the perspective can't help but change.

The South African comedian explained, "If you look at the issues in America right now, let's say just around racial inequality, Jon and I come from totally different points of view. Jon would have to empathize. I, myself, come from a different place."

He does feel the weight of taking over the franchise, commenting, "There’s an immense pressure for me personally to live up to that legacy to keep that flagship going."

Stewart's last show as Daily Show host is next Thursday. Noah's first is September 28.

John Paul Filo/CBS(NEW YORK) -- Could it be that Nat Wolff was destined for stardom?

He’s written hit songs, check. He’s formed a successful band, check. He’s starred in a hit TV series, check. He’s amassed a huge social media following. And now he’s making blockbuster movies, check. And check.

From music to film, it is Wolff’s ever-evolving career that landed him a role opposite Robert De Niro in the film The Intern, set to be released in September.

Wolff told ABC News the two were on set, sitting at a table waiting to tape a scene, when the movie legend pranked him.

“He just turned to me and I was chewing a piece of gum pretty much to stay calm because I was across the desk from one of my heroes. And he said, 'What are you going to do with that gum?' I was like, 'I’m probably gonna spit it out before the scene.' And he was like, 'You know what we used to do with gum? We used to put it under the table.'

"And I was like, 'OK.' And he goes, 'You should do it. Go for it.'

"And I just took the gum and I put it under the table. And he just goes, 'Ha, ha. I can’t believe you did that. And he goes Nancy, look he’s putting gum on the set! He’s putting gum on the set!' So basically he was making fun of me. Also, it totally relaxed me."

Wolff currently stars as the leading man in the new comedy-drama Paper Towns as Quentin “Q” Jacobsen. He’s a high school senior who goes on a wild adventure with his pals to find a missing girl. The film is based on the best-selling John Green novel of the same name.

Pictures obtained by the entertainment magazine show the 59-year-old Keeping Up with the Kardashiansmatriarch's black Cadillac Escalade pulling out of Caitlyn's driveway.

During a special two-part episode of KUWTK a couple of months ago Kris reacted to her ex-husband's transition by saying, "I just miss Bruce. And that's going to take me a minute to mourn that relationship. You think you're going to grow old with somebody, and they drastically change over the course of just a few years."

"I still love you, baby. Is there anything I can do now to make it better for you?" Cait replied

"Live the happiest life you can live....That's all I care about. That you can find the peace you've been looking for for so long," was Kris' response.

Caitlyn documents her transition in the eight-part series I Am Cait, airing Sundays on E!

ABC/Lou Rocco(NEW YORK) -- When Bobbi Kristina Brown passed away earlier this week at the age of 22, Mike Epps tweeted: "I'd like to say f*** fame! It kills all of us."

Elaborating, Epps told ABC Radio, "Fame will kill you. It kills most of us. It's not ever a great ending. I don't hear too many great endings of really, really rich and famous people. Maybe a couple. So, it does, man. Fame is tough."

Brown passed away Sunday months after being found unconscious in her bathtub January 31. She'll be laid to rest Saturday at St. James United Methodist Church in Alpharetta, Georgia. The burial will be in Westfield, New Jersey at the Fairview Cemetery on Monday -- the same location where her late mother Whitney Houston is buried.

Epps said that many celebrities mishandle their fame.

"When you sit and add it all up, and you think about it, you find yourself doing it for legacy. It's only so much money you could have, it's only so many cars you can have, so many houses, so many friends," he explained. "You gotta be really prepared mentally to understand what was the most important thing of doing all of it. Some people never find out what was important of them doing what they did. They just accumulate things."

Epps added that he has no interest in fame. "If I can inspire someone else that came from nothing, my job is done. If I can leave a legacy for my children, my grandchildren, my job is done," he said. 

Epps is set to return to the small screen in the second season of Survivor's Remorse, returning to Starz on August 22. He's also starring in ABC's new family comedy, Uncle Buck. That reportedly premieres in 2016.

Jill Greenberg/Netflix(LOS ANGELES) -- SPOILER ALERT: Orange Is the New Black fans didn't see much of Natasha Lyonne, and her character, the heroin-addicted, Nicky, this season. Still, the actress said it made sense.

"I feel a great deal of solidarity with the cast of Game of Thrones," she quipped at a panel during the Television Critics Association's Summer TV Press Tour 2015, according to E! News.

After three episodes, Lyonne's Nicky was sent to a maximum security part of the jail after she was blamed for bringing drugs into the federal prison in which the drama is set.

"We have an incredible puppet master in [creator] Jenji [Kohan] and there's a great deal of trust that I have in that," she continued. "I'm pretty much a person who is up for adventure and I thought it was wise to have there be a big consequence for Nicky's playing around with heroin. ...There's going to be hell to pay at a certain point for playing with her personal fire."

Lyonne added, "I think it makes sense and I think that the stakes of the show and the reason it resonates and continues to is ultimately because of this underlying intensity to the fact that these people have lost their freedom and are up against themselves behind these walls. I think it's a good thing to have major characters suffer major consequences. Otherwise, I think it might be a little bit too friendly and it loses some of its bite."

Although Lyonne spoke a lot about her character, she wouldn't reveal if Nicky would be let out of max next season. "That seems like a sneaky way to ask another spoiler question," Lyonne replied to one question.

Season three of Orange Is the New Black is available now on Netflix.

ABC/Fred Lee(NEW YORK) -- Now that The Bachelorette stars Kaitlyn Bristowe and Shawn Booth can be open about their engagement, they're now able to think about their future. The two told ABC News after their appearance on ABC's Good Morning America Tuesday that kids are part of the long-term plan.

"I want four and he wants five," she said. "A big family is on the way!"

And while wedding planning may not be their main priority at the moment, both had the same ideas when asked about what they want.  "I'm not picky and I've never been that little girl who dreamt about her wedding day," Bristowe explained. "I just can't wait to be in one room with all family and friends and that's the only thing I care about."

"That's what I was going to say," agreed Booth. "As long as we're surrounded by our family and friends, that's all that matters."

The next few weeks for the couple will include travel to their hometowns of Vancouver and Nashville, so that they can determine where they'll settle down.  "I think we love the idea of having a summer home in British Columbia or Vancouver and living in Nashville," Bristowe told reporters Tuesday afternoon. "I think that sounds pretty ideal."

Added Booth: "I think that might be the best!"

Bristowe also opened up about her Snapchat that almost ruined the entire season. Before the finale aired, she shared a video of herself in bed next to Booth. Bristowe told E! News she "felt really, really bad" about the incident. 

"I didn't realize I'd done that, so we're talking, and Shawn picks up his phone and he's on Twitter, and suddenly he's like, 'Oh my gosh!'" she explained. "He started hyperventilating."

ABC/Fred Lee(NEW YORK) -- Ed Helms stars in Vacation, the reboot of the 1983 film comedy National Lampoon's Vacation, something the comic actor says he doesn't take lightly. 

"It's such a privilege. I mean, the whole Griswold universe is something that has meant to so much to me over the years," Helms said on Wednesday's Live with Kelly and Michael.

Helms plays a grown-up Rusty Griswold in the movie, who decides to take his wife, played by Christina Applegate, and their two sons on a cross-country trip to Walley World, the amusement park made famous in the 1983 original, starring Chevy Chase and Beverly D'Angelo. The two veteran actors also reprise their roles in Vacation.

"It's fun to see Chevy kind of become Clark Griswold because it's different than who he is in person," Helms explained. "I met him that morning and it was like, 'Oh, this is Chevy! I'm excited to meet you.' Then all of a sudden he just morphs into Clark on set"

Chris Hemsworth also stars in the film as Helm's onscreen brother-in-law.  "He's such a good actor. Like, he showed up so prepared," Helms said about his co-star, who's best-known for play the superhero Thor in four Marvel movies. "And he works out a lot. I think his abs were surgically replaced with clay and they're freshly sculpted every morning."

Vacation is now in theaters.

Peter Kramer/NBC(LOS ANGELES) -- Ben Affleck doesn't want you to believe reports he's dating his children's former nanny.

According Us Weekly, the actor has been dating Christine Ouzounian, who reportedly was hired in the spring to care for Affleck's three children with estranged wife, Jennifer Garner. The magazine added that when Garner realized that her husband and Ouzounian were seeing each other, she was fired.

However, a rep for Affleck told The New York Post's Page Six that the report is completely false.

"The story is complete garbage and full of lies. You shouldn’t be able to hide behind ‘blind sources’ and attempt to destroy families going through a difficult time," the rep said. "The tabloid decided to construct stories in order to sell magazines. It’s like story time in kindergarten. It’s shameful and desperate."

Earlier this month, Garner and Affleck announced they were ending their 10-year marriage, but wanted to stay committed to co-parenting their three children.

ABC/Lou Rocco(LOS ANGELES) -- Fuller House, the highly anticipated Full House spin-off, is set to come to Netflix in 2016, but the cast has already started filming, said the cable network's Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos.

"At the taping of the episode this past week, when the cast shows up on stage the audience reacts immediately," he added Tuesday at the Television Critics Association's Summer TV Press Tour 2015. "And the actors have fallen right back into those roles. It's very much in the same spirit but it's a modern take on Full House."

Sarandos also explained why the cable network decided to create a spin-off in the first place.

"Full House is a really unique show in the culture in that it never really went away," he said. "After its network run, it's been very successful in syndication. It is been very kind of cross-generational, where parents are watching the show with their kids."

On Fuller House, Candace Cameron-Bure's character will reportedly be a widowed mother of three, who has her sister Stephanie and friend Kimmy -- played by Jodie Sweetin and Andrea Barber, respectively -- move in to help. The show also will feature guest appearances by original stars Bob Saget, John Stamos, Dave Coulier and Lori Loughlin.

Although it was reported that two of the show’s biggest stars, twins Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen, have declined to participate, Sarandos said not so fast.

"The Olsen twins are teetering whether or not they'll be around," he said.

Fuller House premieres in 2016.
