The heartthrobs of One Direction are back making beautiful music together.

The band released a new single, entitled "Story of My Life" for their latest album "Midnight Memories" and it has plenty of folksy charm, according to Entertainment Weekly.

Let's be honest. There are few actors who can inhabit both a role and a hairstyle quite like Javier Bardem.

"The Counselor" star spoke about his chameleon-like coif with USA TODAY, saying that while acting should take precedence over a hairdo, a good style definitely helps to build a persona.

"The way a character looks shouldn't be more important than the way a character walks or a character talks, for example," he said. "But the look is important."

Someone went to the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office and put in a registration application for the name Washington Bravehearts, USA Today reported.

While the application, dated Oct. 17, is sparking rumors that the Washington Redskins might actually be looking to change their name, the NFL team denied responsibility.

"There is no connection between the registering of this trademark and the Washington Redskins," Redskins' senior vice president Tony Wyllie told USA Today.

So it's settled.

Fresh off a divorce announcement that he's splitting from Miranda Kerr, some may be taking a closer look at the comments Orlando Bloom made about his "'Romeo and Juliet" co-star Condola Rashad.

The 36-year-old actor dropped by "Live with Kelly on Michael" on Friday to dish on his chemistry with Rashad on-stage.

"We sometimes get applause after our first kiss because it just goes on," he said. "Sometimes, I'm like, I'm not letting go."

It's just acting, right guys?
