Hathaway says sorry for 'shade thrown' in meme

Even Oscar-winning Hollywood actresses are afraid of offending the Kardashians.

Anne Hathaway, 33, recently shared a meme of British actress Helena Bonham Carter, her co-star in their new movie Alice Through The Looking Glass, on her Instagram that read: "In a world of Kardashians, be Helena Bonham Carter."

After receiving mean comments like "Really Anne? You don't have to put other people down to bring someone up", Hathaway quickly removed the post that referenced the popular reality TV celebrity family.

She then put up an apology picture that read: "Post removed for unintended shade thrown."

LaBeouf to hitchhike around US

The increasingly eccentric Shia LaBeouf, who made headlines for a series of outlandish antics last year, will be hitchhiking around the US.

For his latest piece of performance art, the 29-year-old US actor is working with frequent collaborators Nastja Rönkkö and Luke Turner, along with digital media and broadcasting company Vice. He will be travelling across the country and interacting with fans.

For the next 30 days, fans can track the trio by using the GPS coordinates they post on Twitter account "thecampaignbook".

They can also visit, where their movements can be tracked in real time.

The project was commissioned by the Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art as part of The Finnish Institute in London and MediaLive 2016.

The other contributors are Vice and the Frame Contemporary Art Finland.
