We sat down with Rev Run and DJ Ruckus ahead of their performance at the Belvedere bash during the Cannes Film Festival tonight. The deejaying duo shared that they have some surprises in store for their big night, which Rev explained is "not just a regular show." It's the beginning of an exciting Summer for the duo, who have plans to perform at the Mixtape Festival in Pennsylvania, Switzerland, and more.

John Krasinski on The Office's Final Season: "To Say That I'm Sad Is the Biggest Understatement of the Year"
The Office's series finale is this week, and original series star John Krasinski is already feeling emotional about the impending end. When I sat down to talk to the actor recently, he got sentimental about the show, talking about what it's meant to him and his career. Watch him open up about his feelings and talk about how nice it would be to have former costar Steve Carell stop by.
In her moving op-ed today, Angelina Jolie revealed that she had a preventive double mastectomy after learning she was at high risk for breast cancer and ovarian cancer. Other women who might be at risk motivated the actress and activist to speak out about her private health decision. Angelina wrote: "Cancer is still a word that strikes fear into people's hearts, producing a deep sense of powerlessness. But today it is possible to find out through a blood test whether you are highly susceptible to breast and ovarian cancer, and then take action."
As Angelina's message of prevention and empowerment spreads across the Internet, she's not the only famous woman to generously share her health struggles. Christina Applegate and Wanda Sykes have discussed mastectomies. Others like Beyoncé Knowles and Nicole Kidman sacrificed some privacy to add to the conversation about miscarriages, while women like Gwyneth Paltrow and Brooke Shields have helped increase acceptance of postpartum depression. Whether about mental illness, fertility struggles, or cancer, when recognized and accomplished celebrities open up, it helps raise awareness and understanding about the health issues that impact women. Read through for quotes from some of these brave women now.
Alice Eve plays one of the new characters in Star Trek Into Darkness, and when I recently sat down with the actress, she was happy to talk about her role and how it felt to be welcomed into the cast. Eve also confessed to not being able to keep all of the script's secrets in — she conspiratorially told us she spilled to her mother! Watch to see the charming star talk about the action film, J.J. Abrams, and how she might figure into the Entourage movie.
Simon Pegg is reprising his role as Scotty in this week's Star Trek Into Darkness, and we recently sat down with the actor to talk about reuniting with his costars four years after the last film. Pegg also talked about helping out the newbies like Benedict Cumberbatch (and how funny it is to hear Americans say that name). Watch to find out why the very funny Pegg thinks humor is so important for this sequel and just how secretive he and the cast had to be about the J.J. Abrams film.
Grimm star Bitsie Tulloch stopped by our LA studios to give us some intel into the upcoming season finale of the supernatural drama. Hint: there will be zombies! Bitsie also chatted with us about the cast's close-knit living quarters in Portland, where the show shoots, and the finale's big cliffhanger. Apparently, one of the main characters' fates will remain uncertain until the show returns for a third season. Catch Grimm tonight at 10/9 Central.
Christy Turlington is a force to be reckoned with. After a serious health scare following the birth of her daughter, Grace, she became immersed in maternal health issues on a global scale, and founded Every Mother Counts to raise awareness about the issue of maternal mortality. Earlier this week, Turlington served on a panel at the Mom+Social conference hosted by the United Nations Foundation here in New York. We were lucky enough to chat with the model, mom, and fierce advocate for mothers across the world.
POPSUGAR Moms: This year, Every Mother Counts has shifted its campaign focus from “No Mother’s Day” to “Know Mother’s Day.” Can you tell us a bit about the new push and what the focus this year is?
Christy Turlington: It’s really always been about creating more awareness, because that’s our biggest goal: to spread the information. Once you learn what’s happening, learn the statistics, you kind of can’t help but want to engage and get involved. So we’re trying to move the dial in that sense. More action, more efforts, and more collective energy around this issue that touches so many people.
This time of year, women are being marketed to at such a ridiculous rate. There’s roughly 15 billion dollars being spent on moms around Mother’s Day in the US alone. What that could do for global health would be just tremendous.
Mandy Ingber's new book, Yogalosophy, is a 28-day health and fitness plan she calls a "mind-body makeover." The yoga instructor, who counts Jennifer Aniston and Kate Beckinsale among her devotees, stopped by POPSUGAR Live! today to chat with us about the easy-to-adapt workout and lifestyle plan. Mandy also talked about what she's learned as Jennifer's teacher and shared advice on how to avoid "beating ourselves up" when we don't perfectly stick to a fitness regimen.
