The statement read:</p> <p>"Adrian Peterson has been informed that he was<a href="http://www.eonline.com/news/578872/minnesota-vikings-adrian-peterson-indicted-on-charges-of-reckless-or-negligent-injury-of-a-child-in-texas-reports" target="_blank"> indicted by a grand jury</a> in Montgomery County, Texas, for Injury to a Child. The charged conduct involves using a switch to spank his son. This indictment follows Adrian's full cooperation with authorities who have been looking into this matter. Adrian is a loving father who used his judgment as a parent to discipline his son. He used the same kind of discipline with his child that he experienced as a child growing up in east Texas.</p> <p>"Adrian has never hidden from what happened. He has cooperated fully with authorities and voluntarily testified before the grand jury for several hours. Adrian will address the charges with the same respect and responsiveness he has brought to this inquiry from its beginning. It is important to remember that Adrian never intended to harm his son and deeply regrets the unintentional injury."</p> <p>Peterson was willingly taken into police custody Saturday morning and was released a half-hour later upon posting $15,000 bond.</p> <h1> Child’s Version Of Discipline</h1> <p>While Peterson and his lawyer Hardin have maintained that he used a switch – a small tree branch with the leaves pulled off – to discipline his son, the child’s version of events contradicts that story. <a href="http://houston.cbslocal.com/2014/09/12/exclusive-details-on-adrian-peterson-indictment-charges/" target="_blank">“Daddy Peterson hit</a> me on the face,” the child said, according to police reports, reported CBS Houston.

With a love of all things hosting, decorating, beautifying, cooking, etc. and an entrepreneurial spirit, she’s created an enviable empire that a couple of Hollywood stars have sought to duplicate. After openly questioning why <em>Gossip Girl's</em> <strong>Blake Lively</strong>, who lives near Stewart with her husband <strong>Ryan Reynolds</strong>, would try to do what she does when she can be an actress, Stewart is now throwing shade at Paltrow.</p> <p>“<a href="http://www.net-a-porter.com/" target="_blank">She just needs to be quiet. </a>She’s a movie star. If she were confident in her acting, she wouldn’t be trying to be Martha Stewart,” Stewart told <em>Net-a-Porter’s Porter</em> magazine..The businesswoman had said something similar after Lively launched Preserve, saying, “It’s stupid, she could be an actress. <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/07/28/martha-stewart-blake-lively_n_5627705.html" target="_blank">Why would you want to be me</a> if you could be an actress” in an interview with the <em>Huffington Post.</em></p> <h1> Stewart On 'Orange is the New Black'</h1> <p>In addition to having a wealth of experience in the lifestyle field, Stewart also knows what it’s like to be incarcerated in a women’s prison. In her short (five-month) stint in prison for obstructing justice in an insider-trading probe, Stewart feels like she’s gleaned an idea of what a show set in such a place should be like and how the star should act. For Stewart, Netflix’s Emmy-nominated series <em>Orange is the New Black </em>and its Emmy-nominated star Taylor Schilling just don’t cut it.</p> <p>“They could have done that so much better. That girl [by whom Stewart means Taylor Schilling] is not good enough, the lead actress,” Stewart said, adding, “I met the real <strong>Piper [Kerman</strong>]. She was in prison either the same time or after me, and I talked to her about it.”</p>Sat, 13 Sep 2014 00:00:00 -0400http://uinterview.com/feed/2353laf2pscg4/t7cfy4j813/2dcocx0qlul/5750fgvxr779/1f9wg54i7lc040o/5zw6vxjrrjxj/1mk7tnm8wv60/1a32qgt1l9bft/5di7kngv0s8w4o/1x3lvbtzklbdm<![CDATA[Mandy Moore Lands Role On 'Red Band Society']]>http://uinterview.com/news/mandy-moore-lands-role-on-red-band-society-12862<div align='center'><a href='http://uinterview.com/news/mandy-moore-lands-role-on-red-band-society-12862'><img src='http://uinterview.com/images/uinterview/news/8c533338dae048bdc4f80510a70333e3-150x150.jpeg' alt='' align='left' /></a></div><p><strong>Mandy Moore</strong> has landed a major recurring guest role on Fox’s new hour-long drama <em>Red Band Society.</em></p> <h1> Mandy Moore Joins Red Band Society</h1> <p>Moore, known for both her singing and acting skills, will play Ocean Park Hospital’s chief of staff Erin Grace.

Bleeding and clearly in pain, Stanton was carried off the field and taken to a nearby hospital, where he received a <a href="http://www.cbssports.com/mlb/eye-on-baseball/24705900/giancarlo-stanton-leaves-on-stretcher-after-taking-pitch-to-face" target="_blank">CT scan and X-rays</a>. </p> <p><iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="169" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/W5Bg3oaHI8I" width="300"></iframe></p> <p>Adding insult to injury, the umpire did not award Stanton a base for being hit, instead ruling it a strike. Pinch-hitter <strong>Reed Johnson</strong> went out to take Stanton’s place, and Fiers, who was kept in the game, hit him on the first pitch. Luckily, Johnson was only hit in the hand, but Fiers was clearly shaken, and the Marlins were running out of patience. The umpire again called a strike, causing the Marlins’ manager, <strong>Mike Redmond</strong>, to become irate. Redmond was eventually ejected from the game.</p> <p><iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="169" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/kWa-ZaZmgoo" width="300"></iframe></p> <p>Redmond later said he was upset by Fiers’ attitude throughout the ordeal. “He hit a guy in the mouth, No. 1.

Before Maggie can swallow a bottle of pills, she gets a phone call informing her that her gay, aspiring actor brother is in the hospital in Los Angeles. She convinces him to come live with her and her husband – whom she's cheating on – in suburban New York, where the two reconnect while wading through the muck they've created in their lives.</p> <h1> 'The Skeleton Twins' Reviews</h1> <p>Impressed with Wiig and Hader's dramatic acting chops, critics have praised <em>The Skeleton Twins</em>, directed by <strong>Craig Johnson</strong> from a screenplay he wrote with <strong>Mark Heyman</strong>. The talented actors give the somewhat formulaic plot of the film a level of authenticity with their easy chemistry while peppering it with their natural comedic abilities.</p> <p>"Wiig and Hader make this work together through their tremendous chemistry–something you’d expect, given that they were longtime “Saturday Night Live” castmates and are good friends off-camera. But this movie asks a lot of them. It asks them to navigate territory that’s both funny and dramatic, light and raw, goofy and brutally honest. And they do it spectacularly. As we enter this season of big, important awards contenders that “matter,” “The Skeleton Twins” is a small, intimate gem that might truly matter." – <strong>Christy Lemire</strong>, <a href="http://www.rogerebert.com/reviews/the-skeleton-twins-2014">RogerEbert.com.</a></p> <p>“The Skeleton Twins” is a well-written and acted movie about contemporary life that doesn’t strain for melodrama and is largely devoid of weepy soap opera theatrics. A small, precise, character-driven vignette, it has no pretensions to make any kind of grand statement about The Way We Live Now.” – <strong>Stephen Holden</strong>, <em><a href="http://www.nytimes.com/2014/09/12/movies/kristen-wiig-and-bill-hader-star-in-the-skeleton-twins.html?partner=rss&emc=rss&_r=0">The New York Times</a></em></p> <p>“That bond [between Maggie and Milo] is illuminated on screen by the real-life friendship of the lead actors, who bring an at-times frighteningly believable brother-sister dynamic to the sharply told tale (written by Mark Heyman and director Craig Johnson). Their relationship veers from painfully awkward tension to moments of giddily intense emotional intimacy.” – <strong>Michael O’Sullivan</strong>, <em><a href="http://www.washingtonpost.com/goingoutguide/movies/the-skeleton-twins-movie-review-kristen-wiig-and-bill-hader-as-suffering-siblings/2014/09/10/dffe6d9e-3522-11e4-8f02-03c644b2d7d0_story.html" target="_blank">Washington Post</a></em></p> <p>“The two costars elevate the film beyond formula. Their onscreen rapport is infectious and believable. Wiig has done this kind of heavy lifting with a light touch before in both <em>Bridesmaids </em>and<em> Friends With Kids</em>. Hader, though, is the film's real surprise. It would have been easy for him to turn Milo into a gay cartoon like his after-hours alter ego Stefon. But he resists the temptation to go for easy laughs and broad strokes and delivers something darker and deeper. It's a shockingly vulnerable performance, one of the best I've seen all year.” – <strong>Chris Nashawaty</strong>, <a href="http://www.ew.com/ew/article/0,,20483133_20843565,00.html" target="_blank"><em>Entertainment Weekly</em></a></p> <p><em>The Skeleton Twins</em> is currently in limited release.

DeGeneres then showed a clip of the Pennsylvania native in the short video that made him an overnight Internet sensation. While attending a state fair with his grandfather, Ritter gave the local reporter the interview of a lifetime, talking enthusiastically about a ride he'd just gone on and how it was his first time on live TV –<a href="http://uinterview.com/news/apparently-kid-noah-ritters-interview-at-a-pennsylvania-county-fair-goes-viral-12359" target="_blank"> saying apparently almost every other word</a>.</p> <p>When Ritter took the couch opposite DeGeneres, he exclaimed, "This is my first time on a talk show! My first time on a talk show!"</p> <p>After DeGeneres mentioned his affinity for the word apparently, Ritter explained that it's no longer a staple of his vocabulary, saying, "Yeah, but I got over it now. I get over it now and then!" When DeGeneres asked him if a new word has taken apparently's place, he considered it for a moment and deadpanned that it's now "seriously."</p> <p><iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="169" src="http://www.youtube-nocookie.com/embed/QrIrbeoDkT0?rel=0" width="300"></iframe></p> <p>Eventually the topic of conversation moved on to school, for which Ritter has a generally negative opinion. Basically, every day feels like forever. "It was like I was in prison for 10 days," he told DeGeneres. "Five days? That's a week. 10 days? That's a year!"</p> <p>What could possibly be worse than 10 days of school that feel like a year? Riding the bus home afterwards. "Why can't the bus driver park at my home?" Ritter asks "He has to park at the bus stop and I have to walk to the bus stop with my Grandparents. My legs hurt. I sit down on my couch and that's the end of pain."</p> <p>Having been made aware that the natural on camera is fond of dinosaurs, the talk show host presented him with an animated model T-rex that impressively moved across the large stage. While Ritter was taken with the dinosaur, he astutely informed DeGeneres, "I’m pretty sure that’s a guy in a costume.”</p> <p><iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="169" src="http://www.youtube-nocookie.com/embed/CaafK0reVzs?rel=0" width="300"></iframe></p>Fri, 12 Sep 2014 00:00:00 -0400http://uinterview.com/feed/2353laf2pscg4/t7cfy4j813/2dcocx0qlul/5750fgvxr779/1f9wg54i7lc040o/5zw6vxjrrjxj/1mk7tnm8wv60/1a32qgt1l9bft/5di7kngv0s8w4o/9o7ig7jlqf400<![CDATA[Nicole Kidman's Father Dies In Singapore, Authorities Investigating "Unnatural Death"]]>http://uinterview.com/news/nicole-kidmans-father-dies-in-singapore-authorities-investigating-unnatural-death-12865<div align='center'><a href='http://uinterview.com/news/nicole-kidmans-father-dies-in-singapore-authorities-investigating-unnatural-death-12865'><img src='http://uinterview.com/images/uinterview/news/6d7e310f2272948b7019e60e0e31e8f5-150x150.jpg' alt='' align='left' /></a></div><p><strong>Nicole Kidman</strong>’s father, Tony Kidman, has died after reportedly suffering a fall in a Singapore hotel, and local authorities are currently investigating.</p> <h1> Nicole Kidman's Father Dies "Unnatural Death"</h1> <p>Kidman’s father was in Singapore visiting Kidman’s sister, <strong>Antonia Marran</strong>, her husband and their six kids.

With that being said, she found the accused negligent and extreme in the behavior that led to Steenkamp’s tragic death.</p> <p>As for the two gun charges and one ammunitions charge, Masipa only convicted Pistorius of recklessly discharging a firearm in a public place. She acquitted him of recklessly firing a weapon out of a car due to conflicting witness testimony.</p> <p>Despite the prosecution’s efforts to have Pistorius' bail revoked due to his conviction for culpable homicide, Masipa opted to extend his bail, not believing him to be a danger to the public or a flight risk.</p> <p>Pistorius is due back in court Oct. 13 for a sentencing hearing.</p>Fri, 12 Sep 2014 00:00:00 -0400http://uinterview.com/feed/2353laf2pscg4/t7cfy4j813/2dcocx0qlul/5750fgvxr779/1f9wg54i7lc040o/5zw6vxjrrjxj/1mk7tnm8wv60/1a32qgt1l9bft/5di7kngv0s8w4o/1fy5x0zaoh3<![CDATA[Chris Rock's 'Top Five' Inspires Bidding War After TIFF Debut]]>http://uinterview.com/tiff-2014/news/chris-rocks-top-five-inspires-bidding-war-after-tiff-debut<div align='center'><a href='http://uinterview.com/custom_series_news/chris-rocks-top-five-inspires-bidding-war-after-tiff-debut'><img src='http://uinterview.com/images/uinterview/custom_series_news/797b095a4d52fabec50c0fba57c59388-150x150.jpeg' alt='' align='left' /></a></div><p><strong>Chris Rock</strong> sparked a bidding war in Toronto with his third directorial effort, <em>Top Five</em>, which he also wrote and stars in.</p> <p><em>Top Five</em> premiered at TIFF on Sept. 6, and was immediately courted by studio distributors, including CBS Films, Relativity Media, Lionsgate and Fox Searchlight.

After serendipitously receiving a bone from the spine of a Spinosaurus from a nomad, paleontologist <strong>Nizar Ibrahim</strong> and a team of researchers went to the site in Morocco where the man said he found the bone. There, Ibrahim and his team discovered more fossils, include teeth and jaw pieces. A partial, 36-feet long skeleton was also recovered.</p> <p><iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="375" seamless="" src="http://player.d.nationalgeographic.com/players/ngsvideo/share/?feed=http://feed.theplatform.com/f/ngs/dCCn2isYZ9N9&guid=00000148-46bb-d1e0-a1fe-d7bfde020001&link=http://video.nationalgeographic.com/video/" width="609"></iframe></p> <p>With the bones recovered and some help from researchers around the world, Ibrahim was able to create a 3D model, predicting how the Spinosaurus would have lived. Scientists posit that the Spinosaurus was a four-legged creature, whose flat feet and long snout allowed it to fish for food in water. Nostrils in the middle of its skull allowed the Spinosaurus to breathe while dunking its snout underwater, and paleontologist <strong>Paul C Sereno</strong> describes the creature as “a cross between an <a href="http://www.nytimes.com/2014/09/12/science/a-nomads-find-helps-solve-the-mystery-of-the-spinosaurus.html?_r=0" target="_blank">aquatic bird and a crocodile</a>.”</p> <p>“[This is] the first water-adapted, <a href="http://www.theverge.com/2014/9/11/6136443/the-largest-predatory-dinosaur-ever-was-half-duck-half-crocodile" target="_blank">non-avian dinosaur on record</a>,” Sereno said in a press conference on Wednesday.</p> <p>On Friday, the National Geographic Museum in Washington will open an exhibit on the Spinosaurus, which includes a model of the dinosaur skeleton.

Upon noticing an ex-boyfriend of <strong>Willow Palin</strong>’s at the fete, <strong>Track Palin</strong> allegedly decided to confront him. Eventually, the rest of the Palin clan become involved. While the men – and <strong>Bristol Palin</strong> – apparently threw some punches, the former governor of Alaska and onetime vice presidential candidate reportedly said, “Don’t you know who I am?!,” according to blogger <strong>Amanda Coyne.</strong></p> <p>In reply, a person in the crowd allegedly quipped, “This isn’t some damned Hillbilly reality show.”</p> <p>Here is Coyne’s full account of the events:</p> <p style="margin-left: 80px;"><em>A nice, mellow party, until the Palin’s show up. There’s beer, of course, and maybe other things. Which is all fine, but just about the time when some people might have had one too many, a Track Palin stumbles out of a stretch Hummer, and immediately spots an ex-boyfriend of Willow’s. Track isn’t happy with this guy, the story goes. There’s words, and more. The owner of the house gets involved, and he probably wished he hadn’t. At this point, he’s up against nearly the whole Palin tribe: Palin women screaming. Palin men thumping their chests. Word is that Bristol has a particularly strong right hook, which she employed repeatedly, and it’s something to hear when Sarah screams, “Don’t you know who I am!” And it was particularly wonderful when someone in the crowd screamed back, “This isn’t some damned Hillbilly reality show!” No, it’s what happens when the former First Family of Alaska comes knocking. As people were leaving in a cab, Track was seen on the street, shirtless, flipping people off, with Sarah right behind him, and Todd somewhere in the foreground, tending to his bloody nose.</em></p> <p>As of yet, Anchorage police have not confirmed the Palin’s involvement in the scrape. However, the police department has attested to their <a href="http://theimmoralminority.blogspot.com/2014/09/anchorage-police-department-provides.html" target="_blank">presence at the party</a> in which the fight took place.</p> <p>No arrests were made in connection to the fight, as no charges were pressed.
