DIANE LANE: Actress Diane Lane has filed for divorce from actor Josh Brolin in Los Angeles County Superior Court, documents show.

The couple were together 11 years and married for eight. They have no children together.

TMZ said Friday Lane cited "irreconcilable differences" as the reason for the split in her Feb. 15 divorce filing.

She also noted the legal date of her separation from Brolin as Feb. 13.

The film stars confirmed their breakup to the media Thursday.


PRINCE HARRY: British Prince Harry is to accompany new girlfriend Cressida Bonas to her half-sister's wedding in South Africa, The Sun reported Friday.

The 28-year-old royal and Bonas, 24, made headlines this week when they were photographed hugging and kissing during a Swiss ski getaway.

The Sun said Harry will be Bonas' date to Isabella Anstruther-Gough-Calthorpe's upcoming wedding to Richard Branson's businessman son, Sam.

Harry is also a friend of the groom and Bonas has been friends with Harry's cousins, Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie, for years.

"Harry and Cressie are at the exciting stage of a relationship where they just want to spend as much time together as possible," an insider told the newspaper. "He has ties to the Branson family, so everyone's incredibly excited at the prospect of seeing them together in South Africa."


MARK HAMILL: U.S. actor Mark Hamill says he and his co-stars from the original "Star Wars" trilogy are in talks to return for the sequels but haven't signed any contracts.

Hamill told TV's "Entertainment Tonight" he, Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher could reprise their iconic roles of Luke Skywalker, Han Solo and Princess Leia in "Star Wars VII," if all goes well.

"They're talking to us," Hamill told "ET."

"George [Lucas] wanted to know whether we'd be interested. He did say that if we didn't want to do it, they wouldn't cast another actor in our parts -- they would write us out," he said. "We're in the stage where they want us to go in and meet with Michael Arndt, who is the writer, and Kathleen Kennedy, who is going to run Lucasfilm. Both have had meetings set that were postponed -- on their end, not mine. They're more busy than I am."

Hamill said he knows nothing for certain but suspects the new film will be about Luke, Han and Leia's children and grandchildren.

"Like my character would be sort of in the Obi-Wan range [as] an influential character," he said.

To be directed by J.J. Abrams, "Star Wars VII" is set for release in 2015.


JULIA BARR: Actress Julia Barr will reprise her role of Brooke English in the Internet version of the U.S. soap opera "All My Children," The Online Network said Friday.

Barr earned two Daytime Emmy Awards for her portrayal of Brooke before ABC canceled the daytime drama in 2011.

Previously announced "All My Children" cast members include Darnell Williams, Debbi Morgan, Vincent Irizarry, Lindsay Hartley, Jordi Vilasuso, Jill Larson and Thorsten Kaye.

Additional casting details will be announced in the coming weeks, The Online Network said.
