If it seems unlikely to you that Katie Holmes and Jamie Foxx are now an item, it's because they're not.
Despite rumors that Holmes and Foxx are dating, Foxx, 45, burst that bubble Tuesday by telling "Entertainment Tonight" the rumors "are 100 percent not true."
"In fact, it's quite hilarious because we simply danced at a charity event along with a lot of other people," Foxx said.

So, 28-year-olds of the world, what have you accomplished lately?
Because 28-year-old New Zealander Eleanor Catton just won one of the most prestigious literary prizes in the world and, in doing so, became the youngest winner of the Man Booker prize in its 45-year-history.
Catton's novel, "The Luminaries," was described by judges as "dazzling," "magnificent," "awesome, "addictive" and "magical." That's a lot of adjectives, huh? Congrats, El!

Pope Francis doesn't just talk the talk about helping others.
Apparently, the pontiff also hands out cash. The pope received accolades this week for sending $270 to an elderly woman who'd written to him about being mugged on a bus she was taking to visit her sick husband in the hospital, according to the New York Daily News.
Pope Francis sent the cash in an envelope to the woman's local parish in Venice and asked the priest to deliver it to her along with a blessing. This guy! Am I right?
