Former first lady Michelle Obama is launching a new voter registration initiative in preparation for the 2018 midterm elections.

The not-for-profit nonpartisan When We All Vote campaign has recruited Hollywood heavy-hitters like Tom Hanks, Lin-Manuel Miranda and Janelle Monae, basketballer Chris Paul and country singers Faith Hill and Tim McGraw to spread the word.

"It's up to each and every one of us to make sure our government doesn't just represent a small some — not just the most powerful — but all of us," Hanks said in a statement.

When We All Vote hopes to raise voter participation this November. In 2014, just 36.4% of the electorate voted during midterms (the lowest rate in 70 years).

Twitter can be a touch crowd. Director, producer and actor Mark Duplass has apologized for a July 18thtweet in support of conservative commentator and Daily Wire editor Ben Shapiro.

In The League star’s original missive, he encouraged liberals to cross the aisle and follow Shapiro. "I don’t agree with him on much be he’s a genuine person who once helped me for no other reason than to be nice," Duplass wrote on Twitter. "He doesn’t bend the truth. His intentions are good."

Duplass was quickly dragged as users pointed out Shapiro’s history of racist comments, including one tweet in which he blamed Trayvon Martin for being killed.

Duplass then walked it back, tweeting that he"in no way endorses hatred, racism, homophobia, xenophobia, or any such form of intolerance."

"My goal has always been to spread unity, understanding and kindness," Duplass wrote. "But I am going to make mistakes along the way. Sometimes I move too quickly when I get excited, or fail to do enough research, or I don’t communicate myself clearly. I’m really sorry. I now understand that I have to be more diligent and careful. I’m working on that."

DIANE VON FURSTENBERG THINGS VIAGRA IS THE ‘WORST’ FOR WOMEN: Not a fan! Diane von Furstenberg rues the day Viagra was invented. "The worst thing that has happened to women in the last 15 years is Viagra," DVF told The Times. "For men, it used to be all about getting it up. ‘Did I?’ ‘Can I?’ There was a certain fairness. A woman couldn’t have a child after 40, right? Though even that doesn’t exist anymore."

It was not love at first sight when Cher met Dominic Cooper on the set of Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again, he tells Vanity Fair. Cooper described the moment he met the legendary crooner, and what she said when she found out he dated their other costar Amanda Seyfried for three years.

"She took one look at me and didn’t trust me at all—and told me so herself, which I laughed out loud at," Cooper said. "After Amanda made it clear that we used to, once upon a time, be together, Cher said to Seyfried, ‘You dodged a bullet there.’ "

Cooper and Cher got tight over time though, even grabbing dinner together months after shooting the sequel.

"She took one look at me and didn’t trust me at all—and told me so herself, which I laughed out loud at," Cooper said. "After Amanda made it clear that we used to, once upon a time, be together, Cher said to Seyfried, ‘You dodged a bullet there.’ "

Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again opens Friday.

In a new video for PETA, animal rights activist and actress Natalie Portman compares consuming meat and animal cruelty to the inhumane acts committed during the Holocaust.

Portman calls out the life of Nobel Laureate Isaac Bashevis Singer, and shares some of his thoughts on animal rights.

"Nowadays, many of us speak up for animals, but it wasn’t always like this," the actress says in the beginning of the video. "Decades ago, one man articulated the plight of animals so boldly that the modern world couldn’t ignore him."

"We do to God’s creatures what the Nazis did to us," Portman quoted from Singer's novel, Shosha.

She also quotes a passage from his novel The Slaughterer: "As long as people will shed the blood of innocent creatures there can be no peace, no liberty, no harmony. Slaughter and justice cannot dwell together."
