Emma Watson tops list of dangerous Internet searches

Emma Watson is the favorite celebrity bait for cyber criminals trying to lure Internet users.

McAfee said Monday that the Harry Potter star is the "most dangerous" celebrity to search for online. That's because many sites use Watson to trick users into downloading malicious software or to steal personal information.

When searching for the 22-year-old Watson, there's a one-in-eight chance of landing on a malicious site.

This is the sixth time the Intel-owned security technology company has conducted the study, which was last year topped by Heidi Klum. Female celebrities are far more likely to be utilized by cyber criminals: late-night host Jimmy Kimmel was the only male in the top 20.

Others among the riskiest celebrities to search online are Jessica Biel, Eva Mendes, Selena Gomez, and Halle Berry.

Married

Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively, who co-starred in last summer's Green Lantern film, married quietly on Sunday in South Carolina, People.com reported, sealing their low-profile romance of about a year.

The celebrity magazine Web site said the Gossip Girl star married Reynolds just outside of Charleston at Boone Hall Plantation in Mount Pleasant, S.C. British singer Florence Welch, of Florence and the Machine, performed at the reception, People quoted an unidentified source as saying.

Representatives for the actors did not return calls for comments. Lively and Reynolds have been dating for about a year, although the private and low-key couple never talked publicly about their relationship.

Canadian-born Reynolds, 35, was previously married to Scarlett Johansson for two years. The couple split in late 2010 and their divorce was finalized in 2011. Prior to that, Reynolds was engaged to singer Alanis Morissette. This is the first marriage for 25-year-old Lively, who most recently starred on-screen in Oliver Stone's Savages.

Cutouts & keyholes

Bikini season may be over, but this is no time to tone down the workout. Many of the styles on the runway at New York Fashion Week flash a bit of skin here or there: bare midriffs, cutout backs, keyhole necklines.

The silhouettes in spring previews that entered a fourth day Sunday aren't necessarily skin tight, but it's not a season of full-on floaty frocks, either.

"We've gone so far away from overt sexiness, but the reality is, sex sells. At some point the shopper wants to be sexy," said Hal Rubenstein, fashion director of InStyle magazine. "Illusion fabric on a shoulder or a little skin showing on a midriff gives you a hint without giving it all away."

Victoria Beckham and DKNY continued the trend with bra-style tops, while many of Alexander Wang's looks were seemingly held together by fishing wire. Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week continues through Thursday before the fashion crowd heads to London, Milan, and Paris.

Tattoo bond

The man Johnny Depp helped release from Arkansas' death row has become like a brother to him, right down to getting matching tattoos.

"We have some," Depp said Saturday as he touched a tattoo on the right side of his chest. "This one Damien designed. It's one of my all-time favorites, and it means quite a lot to me," Depp said before the premiere of the documentary, West of Memphis, about Damien Echols and his two co-defendants.

Echols said whenever he and Depp get together, they often end up in a tattoo parlor. Depp said it's about "celebrating the moment."

Echols, Jessie Misskelley, and Jason Baldwin spent 18 years in prison for the 1993 murders of three 8-year old boys in West Memphis. All three were released after agreeing to an Alford plea that allowed them to maintain their innocence while pleading guilty. The three were the subjects of the Paradise Lost documentaries, which captured Depp's interest in the case.

Depp, along with Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder, Natalie Maines of the Dixie Chicks, musician Henry Rollins, and filmmaker Peter Jackson, who produced West of Memphis, helped pay the legal fees to free the three men.

Christmas gift

When the members of Lady Antebellum sat down to plan out their new Christmas album they faced a choice: Toss it off or take it seriously.

In the end, the platinum-selling trio of Hillary Scott, Dave Haywood, and Charles Kelley put in as much or more work than they had on any of their three previous studio albums. For a simple reason.

"These things live out long past some of your other records because every season it comes back," Kelley said.

"On This Winter's Night" will be released Oct. 22. It's notably different from previous Lady A work, filled with lush orchestral moments, string sections and more full-band arrangements than they've previously attempted.

The title song, co-produced with Paul Worley, is an original, written by the group with Grammy-winning songwriter Tom Douglas.

Intruder arrested at home of Miley Cyrus

LOS ANGELES-- A man with a pair of scissors who claimed to be the husband of teen singer Miley Cyrus was arrested at her Los Angeles-area home after jumping the fence, police and local media reported on Sunday.

Cyrus, 19, was out of town at the time of the incident. Police said they received an emergency call from the property after the man got onto the grounds before dawn on Saturday, knocked on the door and banged on the walls of the former "Hannah Montana" star's house.

Los Angeles police said officers found the man hiding in the bushes and jailed him for trespassing. He was carrying scissors in a back pocket.

Celebrity news website TMZ.com ran video of the arrest, in which the man is heard telling police as they searched him: "I am a friend of Miley Cyrus. I am. She's my wife. Me and Miley have been friends for five years."

Cyrus rose to fame as the star of the Disney Channel's "Hannah Montana" show. Cyrus went on to build a worldwide singing career that includes hits like "Party in the U.S.A." and "The Climb."
