Rep: Griffith had surgery for skin cancer

LOS ANGELES -- A representative for Melanie Griffith said the actress has had surgery to remove early stages of skin cancer from her face.

Spokeswoman Robin Baum said Thursday the procedure was done early enough to prevent further complications.

The 52-year-old Griffith was left with a black eye after the surgery.

The ''Working Girl'' star has a 12-year-old daughter with her husband, actor Antonio Banderas. Griffith also has an adult son and daughter from previous relationships.

She is set to appear on an episode of TV's ''Nip/Tuck'' next year.

Paparazzo crashes into Hathaway's car

LOS ANGELES -- Authorities said a paparazzo crashed his bicycle into actress Anne Hathaway's car in West Hollywood. No one was seriously injured.

Los Angeles County sheriff's spokesman Steve Whitmore said Thursday the unidentified cyclist ran into Hathaway's car on Wednesday as the car made a right turn.

The Oscar-nominated star was a passenger in her black Audi being driven by her boyfriend Adam Shulman.

Whitmore said investigators determined the rider was a paparazzo because he was carrying a camera with a long lens.

Witnesses told deputies he was traveling fast but there was enough time for him to avoid the crash.
