Rita Wilson wants to spread awareness about getting a second opinion. The actress is recovering after undergoing a bilateral mastectomy for breast cancer. The 58-year-old, who had been appearing in Larry David’s Broadway play Fish in the Dark on Broadway, will return May 5, according to her publicist.
Wilson, in a statement to People magazine, said she is expected to make a full recovery and credited getting a doctor’s second opinion after initial breast biopsies found no cancer. “You have nothing to lose if both opinions match up for the good, and everything to gain if something that was missed is found, which does happen. Early diagnosis is key,” said Tom Hanks’ wife.

Brian Montague said the men were involved in a confrontation Friday and Reynolds was hit as the man tried to escape from an underground hotel parking lot. Montague said that officers have spoken with Reynolds, who had a sore knee and back but was OK to return to shoot Deadpool the next day. Montague said police spoke with several people, pulled security video and as a result, a man was arrested at the police station and remains in custody. Montague noted a charge of intimidation is uncommon and applies to someone who persistently follows someone or watches where a person works or lives.
