Ashton Kutcher’s credit card was denied when he went to buy popcorn and a soda at a showing of Get Him to the Greek.

Miley Cyrus defended her racy behavior, commenting, “I’m not trying to be ‘slutty’ … I’m not trying to be, like, go to the club and get a bunch of guys. What I’m trying to do is make a point with my record and look consistent, in the way my record sounds and the way I dress.” And she also was wearing underwear in a “fake” PerezHilton photo that showed her going commando.
