Matthew Lewis and Emma Watson in "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2"
Five pop culture items we missed
Today's catch: A "Harry Potter" star terrified of women, Tiger Woods' ex-wife's rebound, and a Muppets tribute
July 16, 2011 2:01AM (UTC)
1. Six degrees of marital separation: No, don't worry. Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick are fine. But after participating in an ancestry tracing program, "The Closer" star found out she was linked a lot closer to her husband than she may have liked.
2. In memoriam of the day: Sky the kitty, whose 77-year-old owner Luciana Matalon took out a full-page ad in a national Italian paper after the death of her feline friend.
3. Rebound of the day: Tiger Woods' ex-wife Elin Nordegren is dating investor and son of a billionaire Jamie Dingman. You'd think she'd have learned that rich and powerful men don't always make the best husbands ...
4. Obligatory "Harry Potter" quote of the day: Matthew Lewis (who played Neville Longbottom in the films) thinks " girls in general are scarier than Voldemort." 5. Rainbow connection of the day: Salon's own Matt Zoller Seitz takes a look back on Jim Henson's years working with Frank Oz in this moving Muppets tribute video.
