LaughFest sets world record for fake mustaches story image
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - LaughFest continues Friday in Grand Rapids  after setting a new world record Thursday night.

More than 1,500 people showed up wearing fake mustaches.

The previous record was set by the St. Louis Rams last fall with more than 600 people slapping on fake mustaches.   

LaughFest runs through March 17th, featuring everything from big name comedians to family friendly shows.

The proceeds benefit Gilda's Club Grand Rapids.

The event is also helping out another good cause. During the festival Goodwill Industries will be giving away 2,500 laundry bags to people attending some of the community showcase shows.

They ask that people then fill those bags with gently used donations and then return them to any local Goodwill.

DANIELE WATTS - COURT PLEA

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- An actress who claims she was racially profiled after being detained by police is seeing her case make its way through the courts. Daniele Watts and her boyfriend Brian Lucas have both entered not guilty pleas to charges of lewd conduct. Another hearing in the case is set for next month. The case made headlines last fall when Watts -- who is black -- claimed she was racially profiled for a public display of affection toward her boyfriend, who is white. Police launched an investigation -- and some L.A.-area civil rights leaders later chastised Watts for wrongly claiming the officers' actions were racially motivated.

AP Entertainment Editor Oscar Wells Gabriel reports there's a dispute over whether Daniele Watts was racially profiled, as she has claimed.

KEVIN SPACEY - UAE

SHARJAH, United Arab Emirates (AP) -- To hear many Hollywood types tell it, there's nothing more important in the world than awards season. But don't try telling that to Kevin Spacey. Those watching the SAG Awards no doubt noted he was missing when he was called on to accept his honor for "House of Cards." He skipped the ceremony to be in the United Arab Emirates -- where he watched about three dozen young actors from the Arab world perform a play. The effort is part of his foundation's Home Grown initiative, which tries to boost support for young talent. Members of the cast come from Syria, Egypt, Yemen, Iraq and other parts of the Middle East. For many of them, the performance in the UAE was the first time they had left their home countries -- or had gotten support to hone their craft.

NIKKI REED - ANIMALS

PARK CITY, Utah (AP) -- Nikki Reed says her love of animals started when she was young -- and comes directly from her mom. The actress says from the time she was a kid, her mom would let her "bring home any and everything" that she found outside -- whether it needed food, a hug or attention. That means she housed everything from coyotes to raccoons -- "to literally anything that was homeless." She says in her home "animals have always come first." But even then, Reed says it got to the point where she had to tell her mom: "we can't keep this one."

Nikki Reed says it was her mom who instilled a sense of caring for animals in her.

Nikki Reed describes the strangest thing she has done with an animal.

Nikki Reed says while she loves animals, she's at a loss to explain the human-animal bond.

MOVIES FOR ADULTS

WASHINGTON (AP) -- When people think about movies, they usually think of those that are aimed at kids, young adults or tweens. What about the, um, more mature set? AARP The Magazine is out with its annual Movies for Grownups Awards. Winning the best picture honors is "The Theory of Everything." Best actress honors go to Julianne Moore for her work in "Still Alice" -- a movie about a woman battling early onset Alzheimer's. And Steve Carell (kah-REHL') takes best actor honors for his work in "Foxcatcher." Other winners are on the AARP site -- including the winner of best film for grownups who have never grown up.

STARS AND SLOPES AT SUNDANCE

PARK CITY, Utah (AP) -- Seeing a star in Park City, Utah during the Sundance Film Festival can be compared to finding a Starbucks in most big cities -- hard to walk far before you run across one. But there's one place in the city where most stars are able to get away with being themselves: the slopes. There are three resorts in Park City -- and they get little use while the actors, theaters and trendy restaurants are swarmed by movie lovers. All the better for "Entourage" star Adrian Grenier -- who was able to blend into the crowd as he snowboarded. He says he hits the slopes every time he's in town for the festival.
