According to the Daily Mail, Jennifer spent nearly 10 minutes on stage in Los Angeles where James, who she called both “poppa” and “dad”, was honoured.
The star, who donned glasses and was wearing her large diamond engagement ring from fiance Justin Theroux, told how her early days were uncertain on the series because her Friends deal had not been formalised.
“I had to sit out during cast photos,” she said. “They didn’t know if I would still be playing Rachel or not.”
She said that the show, which also starred COURTENEY COX, LISA KUDROW, MATT LEBLANC, MATTHEW PERRY AND DAVID SCHWIMMER, turned out to be “one of the most energising experiences to date” for her.
*TOM HANKS has revealed that he has been diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes after suffering the symptoms for 20 years.
The Hollywood star, 57, told DAVID LETTERMAN’S show in the US that he had only recently been diagnosed.
The Philadelphia and Forrest Gump actor revealed his diagnosis after the TV host commented on how “trim” his guest was looking.
Oscar-winning star Tom said: “I went to the doctor and he said ‘You know those high blood sugar numbers you’ve been dealing with since you were 36? Well, you’ve graduated. You’ve got Type 2 diabetes, young man.”’
He said: “It’s controllable, through diet mostly. Something’s going to kill us all, Dave.
“My doctor said ‘Look, if you can weigh as much as you weighed in high school you will essentially be completely healthy and will not have Type 2 diabetes.
“I said to her ‘Well then I’m gonna have Type 2 diabetes because there is no way I can weigh as much as I did in high school’.”
Tom has taken on roles in films such as A League of Their Own and Castaway that have required him to lose and pile on the pounds in the past, and doctors said these fluctuations could have contributed to the condition.
*KRIS and BRUCE JENNER have confirmed that they have split after 22 years of marriage.
The couple, best known for their reality TV show Keeping Up With The Kardashians, made the revelation to E! News after months of speculation that their relationship was on the rocks.
They said: “We are living separately and we are much happier this way.
“But we will always have much love and respect for each other. Even though we are separated, we will always remain best friends and, as always, our family will remain our number one priority.”
Kris, 57, and Bruce, 63, tied the knot in 1991 and have two children together, daughters Kylie, 16, and Kendall, 17.
They also each have four children from previous marriages, including Kris’s famous daughters KIM, KHLOE and KOURTNEY.
*SACHA BARON COHEN was “too recognisable” and “distracting” to play FREDDIE MERCURY in a biopic, BRIAN MAY has reportedly said.
The Borat star was due to play the late Queen frontman in the film, but in July it was revealed he had exited the project over creative differences.
According to the Daily Mirror, the group’s guitarist Brian suggested Sacha was too well-known for it to work.
He was quoted as saying: “It seemed like a good idea in the beginning but the truth is, he’s too recognisable. He’s very much a style and a character.”
”I think that he would have been very distracting. That’s the conclusion we came to,“ he added.
DANIEL RADCLIFFE was linked to the role following Sacha’s departure, but quickly shot down the rumours, saying he would be “completely wrong” for the part.
And last week the Latino Review reported that DOMINIC COOPER was said to be “circling the project”.
*EMILY WATSON has joined the cast of the upcoming Stephen Hawking film.
DAVID THEWLIS has also landed a role in The Theory Of Everything, reported Variety.
The film follows the relationship between the physicist and Jane Wilde, the arts student he fell in love with whilst studying at Cambridge in the 1960s, and those lead roles have already been filled by EDDIE REDMAYNE and FELICITY JONES.
It hasn’t been announced who Anne Karenina star Emily or The Fifth Estate actor David will play.
The cast also includes CHARLIE COX, SIMON MCBURNEY, MAXINE PEAKE and HARRY LLOYD.
The Theory Of Everything will be directed by James Marsh.
*KELLY OSBOURNE is nursing a sore jaw after being head-butted by her dog.
The singer and TV presenter told fans on Twitter that she was in pain after her pet bulldog William accidentally bashed her face.
She tweeted: “I have been punched in the face by men but nothing has hurt more than being head-butted in the jaw by my bulldog William! My teeth even hurt.”
Kelly, who adopted the pooch earlier this year, later added: “Why do my ears hurt so much considering it was my jaw that got hit?”
A third tweet from the Fashion Police star read: “£IHaveASprainedJaw £ThisSucks.”
Kelly, 28, seems to be having a run of bad luck as she also tweeted that she had broken the screen on her mobile phone.
“I need a new b****y phone my screen is broken I’m spelling everything wrong!” she wrote.
