Hugh Jackman 'fine' after skin cancer bout

Hugh Jackman arrived at the premiere of "Logan" with a small bandage on his nose after taking to Twitter to announce he had been treated for skin cancer once again.

But Jackman insisted he's OK.

"It is fine, it is all done, all fixed, all out. Thank you for asking," he said at the Friday night debut of the film at the Berlin Film Festival.

Jackman revealed Monday that he had another basal cell carcinoma on his nose, and tweeted out a picture of his bandaged nose, and urged people to wear sunscreen.

But his focus on Friday was the "Logan" premiere. It's the third installment of the "Wolverine" spinoff series, and it may be the most ambitious. It's competing at the Berlin Film Festival, which was a goal for Jackman when he signed on to do it.

"I didn't want it to be seen as a comic book movie, I wanted it to be seen as a film on its own," he said.

The movie is set in a dystopian future and sees Wolverine caring for an aged Charles Xavier (Patrick Stewart).

Stewart said he didn't need any convincing to get on board.

"I had no doubts whatsoever. When I began to understand some of the content of this film, I was all for it. The film is unusual, very different and I think remarkable," he said.

Jackman has said that this movie is the end of the road for him and Wolverine. So what does he remember of his last day playing the mutant?

"The last day was an action day and I was sore and hurt and it was great," he laughed.

Jersey Shore reality show a possiblity for wary N.J. town

SEASIDE HEIGHTS, N.J. — Some residents of the New Jersey shore town stung by MTV’s “Jersey Shore” are wary about plans by a bar featured in that show to hold a casting call for a new reality show.

The Bamboo Bar in Seaside Heights is looking for “loud and fun” single people at a casting call on Saturday.

The show is tentatively titled “I Love Summer” and would follow roommates who work on the beach during the day and at the bar at night.

Bamboo Bar owner John Saddy tells the Asbury Park Press that “it’s not as crazy as ‘Jersey Shore.’”

Borough administrator Christopher Vaz says the town won’t support a series that depicts Seaside Heights negatively. He says the town is trying to move beyond the raunchy image that “Jersey Shore” showed.

CoverGirl male model apologizes for Ebola comment

The first male spokesperson for CoverGirl cosmetics is apologizing for saying he was scared to be traveling to Africa because he was afraid he’d get the Ebola virus.

Seventeen-year-old James Charles tweeted on the eve of a school trip to South Africa: “I can’t believe we’re going to Africa today omg what if we get Ebola?”

CoverGirl called Charles’ Thursday tweet “inappropriate” and not representative of the brand.

Charles, who has 182,000 followers on Twitter, was criticized and apologized in an expletive-filled statement. “It was never my intent to offend anyone,” he wrote. “I feel awful for posting what I said.”

Charles’ statement didn’t put the controversy completely to rest because he described Africa as a country. He later explained he made that mistake because he was hurrying to apologize.

‘Dance Moms’ star gets OK to travel before sentencing

“Dance Moms” reality TV star Abby Lee Miller has been allowed to travel overseas while awaiting sentencing in her bankruptcy fraud case.

Federal prosecutors in Pennsylvania objected to Miller’s trip because of the chance she won’t return before her next sentencing hearing on Feb. 24.

Miller says her livelihood depends on traveling. The Los Angeles resident who was previously from Penn Hills went to England to film a movie.

Prosecutors say Miller was dishonest and only fessed up to her real income after a bankruptcy judge saw her on TV in 2012 and figured she had to be lying. They’re seeking a prison sentence of up to 30 months.

Miller’s attorneys say their client simply got caught up in her fame and fortune, but always intended to repay her debts. They’re seeking probation.

Artist Dick Bruna, creator of rabbit Miffy, has died at 89

THE HAGUE, Netherlands — Dick Bruna, the Dutch illustrator and artist who created the bestselling series of children’s books starring white rabbit Miffy, has died at age 89.

His Dutch publisher, Mercis, said in a statement Friday that Bruna died peacefully in his sleep Thursday night in the central Dutch city of Utrecht.

The simplicity of Bruna’s characters drew adoration not only from children around the world, but also from adult art lovers. Amsterdam’s venerable Rijksmuseum put on a show featuring his work in 2015.

He wrote and illustrated a total of 124 books, but Miffy, known in the Netherlands as Nijntje, was far and away the most popular and best known.

Greek expressionist painter Dimitris Mytaras dies at 83

Dimitris Mytaras, one of the leading Greek painters of his generation, has died in Athens at 83.

He studied art in Athens and Paris, and taught for years at the Athens School of Fine Arts, serving as its rector from 1982-85.

Greek President Procopis Pavlopoulos expressed his condolences Friday for Mytaras’ death late Thursday. The Interior Ministry says his funeral will be held in Athens on Monday.
