Media giant ABS-CBN cemented its commitment to serve Filipinos with love on the Philippines’ 121st year of independence with a special commemorative flag-raising ceremony, which aired yesterday after Umagang Kay Ganda.

Jennifer Lopez has a lot of love to give this Father's Day.

The pop icon took to Instagram to share some kind words for her ex-husband, Marc Anthony, with whom she shares her 11-year-old twins, Emme and Max.

"Happy Fathers Day to you Flaco!!! Emme and Max love you soooo much!! Thank you for these two beautiful coconuts!!!" Lopez captioned a slideshow of adorable family photos, which included an older home video of Anthony and Max, a snapshot of the whole family and even a photo of Anthony, their son, and Lopez's current fiance, Alex Rodriguez, hanging out together. "Feliz Día Del Padre!!!"

Lopez also shared a heartfelt message and an adorable video dedicated to Rodriguez, who is a father of two daughters -- 11-year-old Ella and 14-year-old Natasha -- and has become close with Lopez's twins over the course of their relationship.

"How lucky are we to have you in our lives...not only do you make us all laugh everyday, you help us to be our best selves with a loving gentle hand," Lopez captioned the pic. "Being there and caring with a consistent presence that doesn’t ever waiver."

"I cannot begin to tell you how much you have come to mean to me and Max and Emme!!" she added. "Seeing the father you are to Tashi and Ella is one of my greatest joys and they are so fortunate to have you to call Daddy!!! We all love you so much!! Happy Fathers Day!!!"

Lopez recently spoke with ET's Nancy O'Dell one day after Emme joined her on stage at the opening night of her It's My Party Tour at the Forum in Los Angeles, where the mother-daughter duo performed a stunning rendition of "Limitless," leaving the audience shocked by the 11-year-old's impressive vocal skills.

"She has it in her blood. She has the lion heart," said Lopez, who previously told ET that Emme has her "daddy's voice." "I [was] just looking at her and I'm just hoping and praying it all goes well. I got choked up [but] she was fine."

In terms of pure entertainment, few things come close to action movies. With larger than life characters, high stakes, guns, and explosions, this genre has them all. And FOX+’s lineup of movies this month promises to get your heart racing and your butt at the edge of your seat. 

Andrew Garfield is stripping down for his new role.

The 35-year-old actor was recently seen on the streets of Hollywood filming his upcoming flick, Mainstream. Fans who spotted Garfield were given quite a lot to look at as he was completely nude, save a sock, prosthetic penis and sneakers.

In a video obtained by one fan, Garfield -- who's sporting a bleach-blonde 'do -- can be seen walking naked with his hands handcuffed behind his back as he's led away by a police officer. As soon as the scene wraps, which it does to applause thanks to the crowd of fans and crew watching, a woman rushes over to hand Garfield a robe.

Another part of the video shows Garfield walking around the set and talking to crew members in a printed robe.

Nakedness isn't Garfield's only unusual costume for Mainstream, which is being directed by Gia Coppola. Earlier in the week, the Amazing Spider-Man star was spotted wearing a rat costume and holding up a painting on set for the flick, which also stars Colleen Camp, Jason Schwartzman, Maya Hawke, Johnny Knoxville and Nat Wolff.

According to the logline, the movie follows three lovers that struggle to preserve their identities as they form an eccentric love triangle within the fast-moving modern world.

In addition to Mainstream, Garfield is also set to star in upcoming flicks The Eyes of Tammy Faye and Instrumental. In the former, Garfield will star alongside Jessica Chastain as televangelists, while he'll play acclaimed concert pianist James Rhodes in the latter.
