Saturday, March 3, 2018|8:07 p.m.

LOS ANGELES– Jane Fonda, Rita Moreno, Helen Mirren, Matthew McConaughey, Sandra Bullock, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Emily Blunt, Emma Stone, Viola Davis and Mahershala Ali were amongst the stars taking part in casual day at the Academy Awards.

Casual day is actually rehearsal day the day prior to the big show, when a parade of stars come through the Dolby Theatre in their street clothes and tennis shoes to run through the lines they’ll provide in formalwear on Sunday night.

And it was a household affair. McConaughey brought his spouse, Camila Alves. She cheered loudly from the audience front row when he abandoned stage.

Davis brought her daughter, Genesis, who was disappointed that she could not continue seeing wedding rehearsals as soon as mom’s work was done.

The Oscars will air Sunday on ABC.

BERLIN– Hundreds of Charlie Chaplin fans impersonated his “Tramp” character have gathered at the quiet film star’s previous house in Switzerland, marking exactly what would have been his 128th birthday.

The Chaplin’s World museum, which opened a year back, stated 662 individuals sporting the star’s distinctive bowler hat and walking cane gathered Sunday at the Manoir de Ban in Corsier-sur-Vevey, above Lake Geneva.

The Manoir de Ban is where Chaplin lived his last 25 years, raising children, composing music and film scripts and considering his tradition far from the glare of the Hollywood spotlight. He died in 1977.
