Jennifer Lopez Denies Oscar Night Wardrobe Malfunction

Theo Wargo/WireImage for Tommy Hilfiger(LOS ANGELES) -- Jennifer Lopez, known for showing a lot of skin on the red carpet, denies having a "nip slip" while presenting on Sunday night's 84th Annual Academy Awards, reports US Weekly.

Onstage to present the Oscar for Best Costume Design and Best Makeup with Cameron Diaz, Lopez's plunging Zuhair Murad gown left many wondering if she showed too much -- indeed, some news outlets pixilated her chest afterward, even though it was just a rumored wardrobe malfunction.

The actress' stylist, Mariel Haenn, came to her defense, tweeting, "The dress fit perfectly to her every inch. There were cups built in and there's no chance that there were any, how do you say? 'slips.' While the dress did give the illusion of sheer-ness, the joke's on everyone who wishes they saw something. If you thought that dress was hot wait until you see what's next."

Lopez's fellow American Idol judge Steven Tyler, also weighed in.

Tyler was a guest on Monday night's Jimmy Kimmel Live! and was asked about the possible wardrobe malfunction.

"If you look closely here at her cleavage, which I'm sure you've done before," Kimmel said, holding a picture of Lopez presenting at the Oscars, "you can almost see something there."

Kimmel asked Tyler to "inspect" the picture "as an expert."  The Aerosmith frontman put on his glasses, and confirmed that there was nothing to the controversy.

"That would not be it," Tyler said.

Oscars Telecast Spurs Twitter Accounts for Jolie's Leg, J-Lo's Nipple

SAEED KHAN/AFP/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- Angelina Jolie's leg is relishing its 15 minutes of fame after it caught the attention of millions of Oscar viewers on Sunday night.

The actress wore a black dress featuring a split by her right leg, which was prominently showing when she presented an award.

It got a lot of people talking, so much so that someone created a Twitter account called "Angelina Jolie's Leg," which had nearly 20,000 followers as of Monday evening.

The tweets have been mostly innocuous, like "You have to admit I'm one hell of a leg" and "Left leg and I talked -- everything's cool. Next Oscars, she gets the slit."

The Twitter handle is @AngiesRightLeg, if you want to keep tabs on the "leg."

And that's not the only new Twitter account that was inspired by a celebrity's physical appearance at the Oscars.  After Jennifer Lopez's alleged nipple slip, the Twitter account @JLosNipple was created.  Two new accounts dedicated to Bradley Cooper's moustache were also created: @CoopersMustache and @BradleysStache.

Marc Anthony, Jennifer Lopez Play Nice on 'Ellen'

MARK RALSTON/AFP/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- While Marc Anthony and Jennifer Lopez are no longer husband and wife, they're still partners on their Spanish language talent show ¡Q'Viva! The Chosen.  And for the most part, all seems rosy -- unless, of course, Lopez happens to be slapping her ex on camera, People reports.

Ellen DeGeneres recently interviewed the former couple, which airs Monday, where Lopez said tensions between the couple are often played up for the show -- including an un-aired scene where she smacks Anthony in the face during a disagreement.

"They put a sound effect in there," Lopez tells Ellen.  "It sounds like I'm slapping him hard.

Anthony disagreed, saying, "She can't help herself.  Trust me, it hurt."

Marc Anthony: Working With Jennifer Lopez Is Like ‘Riding a Bike’

ABC News(LOS ANGELES) -- Marc Anthony and Jennifer Lopez's love affair may not have lasted in the U.S., but the two are making it work on their journey across Latin America as they film for their Univision TV series, ¡Q’Viva! The Chosen.

“We have a great relationship,” Anthony, 43, said in an interview with ABC’s Good Morning America. “There’s a certain shorthand.  It’s how we started, when we started working together.”

Lopez and Anthony announced the development of the American Idol-style talent competition when they were still married, but began shooting the series after they split despite seven years of marriage.

Even amid reports the two are feuding over custody of their 3-year old twins, Anthony said he had no hesitation that the show must go on.

“Not for me,” Anthony said.  “The question was, what would it be like, having to go through this whole process in the middle of what we were going through.”

“But, it was just like, ‘Hey, what’s up? How’s everything? Ah, good,’” he said.  “It’s just, Jen, Jennifer is Jennifer.”

That kind of “shorthand,” as Anthony calls it, can be seen in the first episodes of the 12-episode series that follows Lopez, Anthony and director Jamie King as they travel throughout 21 Latin American countries auditioning singers, dancers, musicians and street performers to compete to be part of a live Las Vegas show to celebrate Latin American culture.

“It wasn’t difficult at all for me,” Anthony said of working with his ex. “I don’t know what she would say. …God knows.”

Anthony laughed when asked about J.Lo’s likening their post-split relationship to that of Sonny Bono and Cher, but described their happy, working relationship in another way.

“It was like, you know, just riding a bike,” Anthony said.  “It was just us...and we’re very much like that.”

Jennifer Lopez: Too Soon to Think About Marriage Again

Steven Lawton/FilmMagic(NEW YORK) -- Jennifer Lopez has been married three times, most recently to Marc Anthony.  Would she ever walk down the aisle again?  She's not sure.

During an appearance on NBC's Today show on Monday, host Matt Lauer asked her if she'd consider marriage again.  She replied, "I don't know.  It's not time to think about that, do you know what I mean?  It's still fresh."

Despite her split from Anthony last year, Lopez is still working with him on a reality series, Q'Viva! The Chosen, in which they attempt to discover talent in Latin American countries.  She told Lauer that Anthony will always be a part of her life -- especially since they have two children together -- though she conceded that their collaboration has been challenging for her at times.

She said, "We're human.  I'm not going to sit here and lie to you about it.  But at the end of the day there is real love there, and there is a family there and that comes first.  And at the end of the day we also really love this project."

Lopez is not only keeping busy with Q'Viva! The Chosen, but with American Idol, too.  She's also been named a presenter at the Academy Awards ceremony, scheduled for Feb. 26 in Hollywood.

Marc to J-Lo: Go See a Shrink

Theo Wargo/WireImage for Tommy Hilfiger(NEW YORK) -- Marc Anthony has told Jennifer Lopez she needs to see a shrink to help her figure out why she’s unable to be alone and goes straight from one relationship to another, RadarOnline reports.

The website says the estranged couple had yet another argument over the weekend, with Marc getting upset about wanting to see their twins more often.  A source close to the situation tells RadarOnline, “The real source of Marc’s anger is Jen’s relationship with back-up dancer Casper Smart.  Jen is very serious about him, and it makes Marc extremely jealous.”

The source says Marc “told Jen she [should] see a psychiatrist to deal with her issues to figure out why she always needs a man in her life.”  The source recalls that Jen and Ben Affleck “had just broken up when she got hot and heavy with Marc.”

Marc is now dating Venezuelan model Shannon de Lima.
