Hollywood Life: Rosie O'Donnell, Geena Davis reunite for softball in Arkansas

On Thursday, Commack native Rosie O'Donnell and Academy Award winner Geena Davis, who starred in the baseball movie "A League of Their Own," reunited at Arvest Park in Springdale, Arkansas.

The 1992 film is a fictionalized account of the real-life All-American Girls Professional Baseball League that played from 1943-1954.

Joining the two actresses, who were in Arkansas to celebrate the launch of Davis' Bentonville Film Festival, were sisters Gina Casey, 85, and Alice Fracasso, 90, who played in the All-American Girls league. (In the movie, Davis and Lori Petty played sisters who were on the same World War II-era women's baseball team.)

Casey, Davis, Fracasso and O'Donnell, 53, all participated in a four-inning softball game that was followed by a screening of "A League of Their Own."

Davis, 59, said she began the film festival, which ran from Tuesday to Saturday, as a means to champion women and diversity in all aspects of the film industry.

No surgery for Stewart

You won't be seeing Kristen Stewart, 25, go under the knife to change her looks. In fact, the "Twilight" actress had some harsh words to say about women who have had work done during her interview with Harper's Bazaar UK.

"I am so freaked out by the idea of doing anything," Stewart said about cosmetic surgery. "And maybe that's completely arrogant, but I don't want to change anything about myself. I think the women who do are losing their minds. It's vandalism."
