In order: group photos with family (69%) and friends (66%), selfies (58%), pet pics (52%), and scenery (43%).

Gwyneth Paltrow could be persuaded to act again… but only if the right person calls. The Goop founder revealed to “Entertainment Tonight” that despite being preoccupied as CEO of her lifestyle brand, her “Iron Man” co-star Robert Downey Jr. could convince her to get back on camera. Quote: “It would be very hard for me to do any acting right at the moment, just because of my job. But, I guess Robert Downey Jr. could probably always get me back.” She added, laughing: “You know, to some degree.”

The best way to avoid skyrocketing rents is not to pay rent at all. A man in China was recently busted – after living undetected in a mall for 6 months — during which time, he evaded security by hunkering down in a tent under the stairs. A video showing his epic living spree is all over X. It shows that the unidentified man had stashed a tent, table, computer and chair under the staircase. He would periodically pop out to charge his devices at the shopping center’s outlets. Things went well for the mallrat – until he was discovered by a security guard last month. LINK:
