Kutcher visits Letterman wearing bulletproof vest

Like David Letterman, Ashton Kutcher isn’t afraid of a little fatwa humor.

Mr. Kutcher taped an appearance for Mr. Letterman’s talk show Wednesday, and the actor came on stage wearing a helmet and a bulletproof vest printed with the phrase, “Not Dave,” according to the Associated Press.

Last week, a contributor to a jihadist website posted a threat of violence against Mr. Letterman because the comedian had made fun of al Qaeda leaders on his show in June. Mr. Letterman, back from vacation Monday, played the threat for monologue laughs.

During Wednesday’s taping, Mr. Letterman asked Mr. Kutcher if his bow tie was bulletproof. The actor replied that “you can’t be too careful” sitting next to a guy facing a threat.

Whoopi Goldberg adopts kitten thrown from car

A kitten tossed from a moving car on New York City’s Verrazano Bridge now has a name — and a celebrity “mom.”

Whoopi Goldberg has posted a video of Vinny on her Facebook page. It shows the gray kitten grooming himself and batting a feather toy with his paw.

Vinny was rescued in July. An Animal Care and Control officer who happened to be driving on the bridge witnessed the kitten being thrown, according to the Associated Press.

Miss Goldberg noted on her page that she met Vinny on the ABC talk show “The View,” where she is a co-host.

Miss Goldberg said her other cat, Oliver, is “not too happy” about the new family member. She added: “I think he’ll get Oliver to come around sooner than later.”

Reality stars won’t shine on Hollywood Walk of Fame

Added Ana Martinez, vice president for media relations and producer for the Hollywood Walk of Fame: “It’s just not on the radar for us right now.”
