Matthew McConaughey is off the market

Actor and fitness enthusiast McConaughey popped the question to Camila Alves on Christmas, and she agreed to head down the aisle with the "Lincoln Lawyer" star.

Taking to his WhoSay.com account, the star simply said, "Just asked camila to marry me, merry Christmas."

The couple have two children, son Levi, 3, and their little girl, Vida, almost 2.

Alves hosted the Bravo competition show "Shear Genius" in 2010, and she designs a collection of handbags called Muxo. McConaughey will next be seen in "Magic Mike," Steven Soderbergh's male-stripper adventure with Channing Tatum, Joe Manganiello, Matt Bomer and Alex Pettyfer. Los Angeles Times

Revised numbers keep 'Mission' at No. 1 spot

Hollywood has picked up a little Christmas bonus.

Studios generally underestimated the size of their movie audiences over the weekend, and they're now revising the holiday revenues upward.

Leading the way is Tom Cruise's "Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol," which pulled in $29.5 million for the weekend. That Monday figure is $3 million more than distributor Paramount estimated a day earlier.

Studios also reported stronger results than they did a day earlier for Robert Downey Jr.'s "Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows," which was No. 2 at $20.3 million for the three-day weekend and $31.8 million for the four-day period. Steven Spielberg's "The Adventures of Tintin" was at No. 5, bringing in $9.7 million over three days and $16.1 million for four days; and Matt Damon's "We Bought a Zoo" was at No. 6 with $9.5 million over three days and $15.6 million for four days.

In a tight race for the No. 4 spot were David Fincher's "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" and "Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked."

"Dragon Tattoo" did $12.8 million over three days and $19.4 million for four days. "Chipwrecked" took in $12.7 million over three days and $20 million for four days. Associated Press

Lady Gaga tops annual 'Celebs Gone Good' list

DoSomething.org, a U.S. organization that helps teens take action on causes they care about, released today its fourth annual "Top 20 Celebs Gone Good" list.

Lady Gaga continues her reign as the star who uses her celebrity to do the most good. Known for her support of gay rights and efforts to fight AIDS and poverty, she focused primarily this year on preventing bullying, even taking her thoughts to the White House in December. She also announced the creation of her own charity, the Born this Way Foundation, which aims to empower youth.

Justin Bieber came in second, up from No. 10 last year, because of his work with Pencils of Promise, an organization that builds schools in Laos and Guatemala. PRNewswire
