Mindy Kaling at Harvard Law

Mindy Kaling has blasted her Hollywood peers for giving "too much advice."

The Mindy Project creator and star urged a class of new graduates not to listen to tips on diets and parenting from uneducated celebrities while giving a speech at Harvard Law School's commencement ceremony in Cambridge, Massachusetts, on Wednesday. "Celebrities give too much advice, and people listen to it too much. In Hollywood, we all think we're these wise advice givers, and most of us have no education whatsoever," the 34-year-old said. "Try to be the kind of people who give advice to celebrities, not the other way around," she added.

Chelsea Handler to Land Daytime Show?

Chelsea HandlerChelsea Handler has been in talks to host a daytime show.

The 39-year-old presenter - who is to leave E! when her Chelsea Lately contract ends - had sparked speculation she was to replace Craig Ferguson on The Late Show on CBS after posting an Instagram picture of her holding papers branded by the network, but insiders insist she won't be taking on the 12:30 am slot.

"There are no discussions with Chelsea Handler regarding the network's 12:30 late night broadcast," an official statement from CBS read.

Instead, sources told the New York Post newspaper that she met with executives to discuss the possibility of a syndicated daytime talk show, following in the footsteps of the likes of Kris Jenner, Katie Couric and Anderson Cooper. However, it seems the outspoken star could have jeopardized the plan with her social media posting. "Chelsea Handler is a pain in the butt," an executive told the newspaper.

Juno Temple and Daniel RadcliffeJuno Temple says Daniel Radcliffe should be a stand up comedian.

The 24-year-old actress worked with the Harry Potter actor on indie movie Horns and revealed Daniel kept her entertained with his jokes after the director asked her to open a scene by laughing. "There was one take where there was quite a complicated shot and we had to keep redoing it to get the shot right. We had to open with me laughing and Daniel must have told me 20 to 25 jokes. It was insane. I didn't know somebody had that many jokes. It was genius. He's a stand-up comic," she told E! News.

While Juno will play Queen Elizabeth's sister, Princess Margaret, in Girls Night Out, the new movie about the sisters sneaking out of Buckingham Palace as teenagers, she admits she didn't follow coverage of the recent birth of Prince George, the future British king: "I'm happy for [Prince William and Duchess Catherine], but I'm not really good at following tabloid stuff.
