ATLANTA (AP) -- Jane Fonda said she learned recently that "good enough is good enough" and had overcome a quarter-century battle with anorexia and bulimia.
"For 25 years, I could never put a forkful in my mouth without feeling fear, without feeling scared," Fonda said at a fund-raising dinner Saturday for the Eating Disorders Education Network.
Fonda, who split with billionaire Ted Turner last year, served as auctioneer and celebrity guest for the dinner.
"This feels like one of those AA meetings ... But instead it's 'I'm Jane Fonda and I've been bulimic and anorexic for 25 years of my life,"' she said. "I'm 63 years old and only in the last two years have I learned that good enough is good enough."
Downey hearing postponed
INDIO, Calif. (AP) -- Robert Downey Jr.'s next court hearing is likely to be postponed again, according to prosecutors.
Downey, charged with possession of cocaine and a tranquilizer, faces more than four years in prison if convicted.
His court hearing was postponed from Jan. 29 to Wednesday, when it is likely to be delayed again, Riverside County prosecutor Tamara Capone said.
"We haven't reached a disposition yet, so we're simply going to continue it," she said.
Attorneys will seek a court date in mid-March, Capone said.
Downey, 35, was arrested on Nov. 25 at a Palm Springs hotel. He had just been released from prison in August after serving about a year for violating probation on drug arrests dating back to 1996.
Studio taps Coke for Potter
NEW YORK (AP) -- You wanna be cool, muggles? Drink Coke.
Warner Bros. has picked the Coca-Cola Co. as its sole promotional partner for the upcoming movie "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone," the soft drink giant and studio announced Tuesday.
The deal will put $150 million of Coke marketing muscle behind the film as part of a global campaign tied to the movie's Nov. 16 U.S. release.
The ad campaign will include the placement of Harry Potter-related images on Coca-Cola, Minute Maid and Hi-C packaging. It won't, however, extend to product placement in the movie or images of Harry drinking Coke.
Jazz fans jab at Burns
DENVER (AP) -- Ken Burns' ears must be ringing -- and not from the sounds of "Jazz."
Burns' 19-hour documentary wasn't among the movies at this year's Denver Jazz Film Festival, but that didn't prevent many festival attendees from critiquing it.
"I could make a movie called 'All The Things That Ken Burns Left Out,' said Celia Mingus Zaentz, the first wife of jazz legend Charles Mingus. She made clear, though, that the series served a purpose.
"It's now given us a reference point. Now you can start a conversation with anyone who has seen the jazz series," she said.
Jazz film archivist Mark Cantor, a consultant on Burns' series, said the music clips were too short because Burns "lacked trust in the music or in the audience."
But jazz DJ Peter Poses said, "I shed a lot of tears watching the Ken Burns' series, whatever the flaws may be."
