In today's top Hollywood headlines, celebrities get silly while they're going a little stir-crazy, others honor their own, big names vie for a hot role that's coming up, and our favorite jokesters deal with grooming during lockdown.

Stella McCartney knows how to have a good time. She shared a video of herself using a sleeping bag to go "sledding" down her staircase, in an effort to occupy herself while she's hanging out at home. Then she went and challenged others, including Drew Barrymore, to do it, too.

It didn't work out so well for Drew, though. Try this one at home at your own risk, folks.

The folks of country music are coming together to remember Kenny Rogers, the musical legend who passed away last month.

Throughout the show called CMT GIANTS Kenny Rogers: A Benefit For MusiCares, airing on April 8, fans can donate to MusiCares' COVID-19 Relief Fund.

Those who wish can donate by visiting www.musicares.org/kennyrogers or by texting  KENNYCARES to 41444.

Virtual performances will include Gavin DeGraw, Jason Isbell, Amanda Shires, Jennifer Nettles, Lady Antebellum, Lionel Richie, Michael McDonald, Randy Houser, Rascal Flatts, Vince Gill, and Dolly Parton. 

And speaking of Dolly, the "the book lady" herself has decided to starting reading to kids every Thursday night on the Imagination Library YouTube channel, and all of the organization's other social media platforms, starting at 7 p.m. Eastern.. 

She'll be starting tonight with the classic, "The Little Engine that Could."

"It's a real positive little book for the times right now," Dolly told Savannah Guthrie and Hode Kotb on the TODAY Show this morning.

"I can, I can, I think I can, and I think we can and i think we will," she said.

Joe Exotic thinks he can get big names to play his part in a new movie, and he's probably right. The Netflix documentary Tiger King made him a household name, and now the former Big Cat breeder wants either Brad Pitt or David Spade to portray him in an upcoming film, according to People.

Despite Joe's wishes, nabbing that role is a hot ticket and other actors are trying to claim it, including Dax Shepard and Edward Norton.

And Married actors Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively are spending their days at home with their three little girls and Blake's mom, so what's Ryan doing?

"I'm mostly drinking," Ryan, who owns Aviation Gin, joked on Wednesday night's at-home edition of The Late Show With Stephen Colbert.

All kidding aside, Ryan says he helps home school the girls and works in the family's garden, and today Blake is giving him a haircut.
