FARRAH FAWCETT: Washington's Smithsonian Institute says actor Ryan O'Neal has donated a trove of memorabilia featuring his late partner, actress Farrah Fawcett.

Fawcett died of cancer in 2009. She was 62.

One of the items O'Neal gave the museum is the iconic red swimsuit Fawcett wore in a wildly popular poster. The collection also includes an original copy of the poster, a leather-bound book containing Fawcett's personal copies of scripts for the first season of her show "Charlie's Angels," a Fawcett swimsuit jigsaw puzzle, an original 1977 Fawcett doll and a Farrah's Glamour Center hairstyling head, People.com reported Wednesday.


GWYNETH PALTROW: Actress Gwyneth Paltrow and recording star Cee Lo Green are to perform together at the upcoming Grammy Awards show in Los Angeles, organizers announced.

Paltrow famously covered Green's song "Forget You" on the TV series "Glee."

She and Green will perform alongside the Jim Henson Company Puppets, The Recording Academy said Wednesday.

They will join previously announced performers Arcade Fire, Eminem, Green, Lady Antebellum, Lady Gaga, Miranda Lambert, Muse, Katy Perry, Justin Bieber, Usher, Jaden Smith, B.o.B, Bruno Mars and Janelle Monae.

Dierks Bentley, Norah Jones, Selena Gomez, LL COOL J, Nicki Minaj and Blake Shelton are to be presenters at the Feb. 13 event, which is to air on CBS, the academy said.


JENNIFER ANISTON: U.S. actress Jennifer Aniston is denying rumors she is in the process of adopting a baby.

People.com said the film star made the remarks during a taping for Thursday's edition of "The Ellen DeGeneres Show."

Asked by DeGeneres if she is going to adopt another dog, People.com said Aniston replied, "I think you're confusing that with the Mexican child I'm supposedly adopting."

"Oh, are you going to adopt a Mexican child?" DeGeneres inquired.

"No, I'm not adopting a Mexican child," the single actress answered, joking that Adam Sandler "adopted four last week and that never even got mentioned. No, I'm not adopting any children. ... And no doggies right now."

Aniston and Sandler co-star in the new big-screen comedy "Just Go With It."
