JENNIFER LAWRENCE-NUDE LEAKS

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- It is not the kind of public exposure most celebrities want. Jennifer Lawrence has gone to the authorities to find those responsible for leaking nude photos of her online. The Oscar-winning actress claims the photos were stolen from her before being shared online. A statement from her publicist calls the move a "flagrant violation of privacy" -- and says that those responsible will be prosecuted. The FBI has taken the lead in probing similar thefts of images in the past. But a spokeswoman for the federal law enforcement agency declines to comment on the Lawrence story. And the actress' spokeswoman wouldn't specify which authorities have been contacted about the case.

AP Entertainment Editor Oscar Wells Gabriel reports federal authorities have handled these kinds of cases before.

MARY ELIZABETH WINSTEAD-NUDE PHOTOS

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Mary Elizabeth Winstead is also confirming that there were nude photos of her posted online. And she is firing back through a Twitter message. She says to those who might be gaping at the photos -- she hopes they "feel great" about themselves. She says she took the photos with her husband years ago in the privacy of her home and thought the photos were "deleted long ago." Winstead says the fact that they were deleted images means she "can only imagine the creepy effort" that went into dredging them up.

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- The movie is called "Guardians of the Galaxy" -- but it might be the savior of the box office this summer. The movie, based on Marvel comics characters, topped the Labor Day box office with $22 million in receipts. While that's a modest take for an extended summer weekend, it's the third time in its five weeks of release that the movie has topped the box office list. And with sales of $280 domestically so far, it's the top grossing-film to date this year. Despite the success of Guardians, summer box-office totals are down almost 15 percent from last year. Paul Dergarabedian of Rentrak says without Guardians, Hollywood would be staring at a 20 percent deficit compared to last year.

AP Entertainment Editor Oscar Wells Gabriel runs down the list of top films over the Labor Day weekend.

BOX OFFICE-WHY?

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- This summer wasn't nearly as hot as ones in the past -- and in this case, we're talking about the movies, not the weather. This will go into the books as one of Hollywood's weakest summers. And there are a couple of reasons for that. For one thing, studios were reluctant to bring out their big guns: blockbuster movies to guarantee a strong box office presence this summer. One theory is that Hollywood didn't want to compete with the World Cup soccer matches, so they withheld some of their best material for future release. And the death of Paul Walker took one of the top movie franchises out of the summer mix. The release of the latest in the "Fast and Furious" series had been due this summer. But it was pushed back a year because of Walker's death.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- She's one of the biggest stars to come out of "American Idol" and soon she'll be a new mom. Season 4 Idol winner Carrie Underwood and husband, NHL player Mike Fisher, are having a baby. They each posted messages on their Twitter accounts with Underwood saying hers was in honor of Labor Day. Underwood's publicist confirms the couple is expecting their first baby next spring. Underwood has won six Grammys. Fisher is a center for the NHL's Nashville Predators.

One of country's biggest stars is pregnant. The AP's Jamie Friar reports on a holiday message to fans.

JOAN RIVERS

NEW YORK (AP) -- No updates on Joan Rivers. She remains hospitalized in New York after suffering cardiac arrest last week at a doctor's office. Her family has been with her at Mount Sinai Hospital, hoping for her recovery. Two of her "Fashion Police" co-stars have expressed support for her. Giuliana Rancic says while Rivers is "the strongest woman" she knows, every prayer for her helps. And Joan Osbourne says she hadn't prayed for years -- but did the other night for Rivers. She encouraged others to do the same.

TV SNACKING

CHICAGO (AP) -- Can a show like "Scandal" make you fat? A new study suggests you need to be careful. The study by researchers at Cornell University finds that action-packed TV shows caused people to snack more than more sedate TV fare. The study suggests that faster-paced TV shows seem to distract viewers more -- which leads them to become more involved in mindless eating. It's unclear whether the study implies that TV shows that are gripping will lead to gripping those love handles. But the study's lead author says viewers should always be wary of stuffing their faces while watching their flat screens.
