>> oh, come on now, i find that hard to believe. this little "uptown girl"? >> it's true. oh, yeah, i forgot that dance. i know four dances, "uptown girl" and my four dances from "chicago." ♪ roxie, roxie >> 65-year-old supermodel christie brinkley's the early favorite -- she starred as roxie hart on broadway three times. and has a strategy. >> if i can't do it with my feet, i'll distract them with my face. >> i love it! >> from christie to dawson -- cue the music. ♪ i don't want to wait >> you planted the seed a long time ago. >> we're going to win "dancing with the stars." >> from way back when i was the in the apartment 23 and pitch the story line where fake me goes, goes on the fake "dancing with the stars." >> but within minutes of this morning's casting announcement there was backlash and controversy. in a surprise tweet, host tom bergeron seemed to suggest he was against the casting of former presidential press secretary sean spicer.
bergeron said he was hoping the show would be, quote, a joyful respite from our exhausting political climate and free of inevitably divisive bookings from any party affiliation. when you look forward to a ped yum rolled on to the dance floor and maybe melissa mccarthy pops out -- >> and with "dancing with the stars" ratings down -- expect format and voting changes. >> we need to tweak things a bit. >> one thing that hasn't changed -- lamar odom and was in a coma almost four years ago, what was your strategy going into? >> go hard and put work into practice. >> bringing thelaughs, kate flannery. but is "dancing's" secret ratings weapon really hannah b.? this "bachelorette" always speaks her mind. >> but aren't you tired of

share miley with anyone. he loves her and he is far too traditional. he finally felt like things were getting nasty and he didn't want to brag it out publicly. they did have a prenup. >> just like liam, we're going to move on, too. meanwhile, happily married simon cowell hit the "agt" red carpet. he is living his best life, 20 pounds lighter and spilling his secrets to "e.t.'s" denny directo. >> you look great, can i just say that? >> my son eric said to me he was doing the pec thing and he said, daddy, how come you can't do the pec thing. i said that one i can't keep up with that. >> 5-year-old eric is a big reason behind simon's new svelte look -- the soon-to-be 60-year-old decided it was time to get healthy for his son, after low blood pressure caused him to pass out last year. >> you're fitness inspiration, simon. >> it's diet that's all it is. yeah. >> you feel great? >> i feel much better, yeah. >> this man is my hero.
>> you know what, he's your hero. he's scared to go in the gym with you, though. >> no, no, but he's so rich, you know what i mean? he could just buy it and lock me out. why can't i get in the gym right now? he's like, i bought it, terry. >> i actually leaned over to gabrielle and i was like, simon, he looks good, what is he doing? also, gabs has got the booty popping thing. >> we got to talk about your daughter's reaction to your look. >> she's serving face because i'm serving cleavage and there's already shade. >> last night might have been the most brutal yet. >> there were moments tonight where i was like -- >> i noticed today at one point today you covered simon's mouth. can we talk about movie news that's still blowing everyone's minds.

nicole in her role as gretchen carl sn. these crazy transformations shouldn't surprise you -- remember charlize in "monster"? margot three hours in the makeup chair for "mary queen of scots"? or nicole in "destroyer"? nicole has the only line in the entire 86-second trailer. >> i think it's an important story. we need to tell these stories, for sure. coming up -- kirsten dunst on that infamous brad pitt kiss. then, i've been lucky guy. >> just married and rolling in money. and why it's full of surprises.

>> kirsten had a lot of screen time with both tom and brad, and we showed her what she said back in the day about this infamous lip lock. >> i hated it so much because i don't know, brad was like my older brother, and it was kind of like kissing your brother, i don't know. i don't know, it was weird kissing an older guy. i had to kiss him on the lips which was gross. they were so sweet to me. i mean, listen, that production, that film was like nothing else i've ever experienced, maybe >> back then, brad was very impressed by his young co-star but admits that kissing scene was tough. >> in comes this little woman, you know, who ran circles around most of the adults on the set. >> she said the hardest part was kissing you. >> listen, it was no easy road for me, either. my dad's got to watch this movie. >> kirsten's now 37 and a mom to a baby boy.
