Chris Klein recently opened up about his battles with alcohol addiction and spoke candidly about how it almost destroyed his life.

"I would have died," the actor told People, "and I think about that every single day."

The American Reunion star spoke about his rapid rise to fame in the late 90's with films such as Election and the first American Pie, and how he eventually found himself behind bars after two DUI arrests.

"It got to the point where I was a fragile shadow of the young man that came into this business," said the star. "Today, I'm the luckiest guy alive."

Klein's full interview is in the new issue of People, hitting newsstands this Friday.

Amandla Stenberg, the 13-year-old who plays Rue in The Hunger Games film, has responded to the barrage of racist tweets that came her way from alleged fans of the book series.

"As a fan of the books, I feel fortunate to be part of The Hunger Games family," read her statement to Us Weekly. "It was an amazing experience; I am proud of the film and my performance. I want to thank all of my fans and the entire Hunger Games community for their support and loyalty."

Both Stenberg and Dayo Okeniyi, who played Thresh, were the subject of many racist tweets over the opening weekend of the film.

In the book, written by Suzanne Collins, both characters are described as having "dark brown skin," but there was an outcry from racist fans who were upset by the casting of black actors.

Okeniyi's rep said the actor had no comment.

Last night, Spike Lee issued an apology to the McClains, the couple whose address he mistakenly retweeted as the address of the man who shot Trayvon Martin.

"I Deeply Apologize To The McClain Family For Retweeting Their Address," tweeted the director. "It Was A Mistake.Please Leave The McClain's In Peace.Justice In Court"

Last weekend, Lee retweeted an address to his 250,000 followers, believing it to be the home of George Zimmerman. The address was actually the home of David and Elaine McClain, an elderly Florida couple with no connection to the highly publicized case.

The McClains had to leave their home for a hotel after they received several threats from strangers. Lee himself was subjected to many racially charged responses after his mistake.

TMZ claims that Lee's apology came shortly after the couple hired a lawyer.

Yesterday on his radio show, host Carson Daly was discussing the recent "medical incident" involving a JetBlue pilot when he suggested that homosexuals would not have been able to subdue the dangerous pilot.

In the audio above, Daly makes anti-gay jokes and then mocks homosexuals by changing his voice to sound like a gay stereotype.

"This morning on my radio show I attempted to make fun of myself & offended others by mistake," tweeted Daly later. "I sincerely apologize."

Today, after considerable criticism, The Voice host issued another apology via GLAAD.

"I've long been a supporter of gay, lesbian, and transgender rights, and I'm saddened that my comments, however unintentional, offended anyone, specifically members of the LGBT community," read Daly's statement. "The fact that I have hurt anyone is devastating. I'm not that guy."

The host concluded that he is proud to be an ally of the LGBT community, and vowed that he would continue to fight with them.

Today marks the 26th birthday of pop sensation Lady Gaga.

Born Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta in New York City, she was raised on the city's affluent Upper West Side. She briefly attended New York University's Tisch School of the Arts before leaving to pursue a music career.

Gaga subsequently began performing in downtown bars and was quickly signed to Streamline records in 2007. She worked primarily as a songwriter until singer Akon took notice of her voice and signed her to his label as a performer.

By 2008, she was at the top of the charts with hits like "Just Dance" and "Poker Face." Her next album, The Fame Monster, spawned more hits such as "Bad Romance" and "Telephone." Her latest project, 2011's Born This Way, sold 1.1 million copies in its first week.

With only three albums under her belt, Lady Gaga has become one of the best-selling music artists of all time. She has been named Billboard's Artist of the Year, and is considered one of the most influential people in the world by Time magazine.

Happy birthday, Lady Gaga!

Bobby Brown, who was recently arrested under suspicion of a DUI, insists that he is only guilty of talking on his cell phone while driving.

"Everyone is innocent until proven guilty and Mr. Brown was not driving erratically," his lawyer Tiffany Feder told E! News. "He was speaking on his cellphone. Mr. Brown has not been convicted of anything associated with this incident."

Earlier this week, he was pulled over by the California Highway Patrol for talking on his phone when officers noticed signs of intoxication.

The "My Prerogative" singer failed a field sobriety test and was booked at the Van Nuys County Jail.

"Mr. Brown is taking this matter seriously and an investigation is underway," said Feder. "The legal process shall run its course."

The former New Edition member has been in the news since last month, when his ex-wife Whitney Houston died in her Beverly Hills hotel room.

Over the weekend, Michelle Williams and Jason Segel were spotted getting cozy in Brooklyn after a dinner date at Frankie's Spuntino.

"They are smitten and very serious," said a source, while a bystander reported that the new couple seemed relaxed and happy as they walked down the street together.

The next day, Segel was seen hanging out with Williams' six-year-old daughter Matilda as she rode around on her scooter.

The two actors have known each other for some time through their mutual friend Busy Philipps, but they only recently began dating.

Segel and Williams were seen dining together in Los Angeles at the end of February, and were spotted out again in West Hollywood earlier this month.

While they live on opposite coasts, the insider says they are "trying to make it work," and that the Brooklyn-based actress "hasn't been this happy in a long time."

More pictures of the new couple at the source.
