Calling it quits ...

Court records show Melissa Gilbert has filed for divorce after 16 years of marriage to fellow actor Bruce Boxleitner.

The former "Little House on the Prairie" star cited irreconcilable differences in her divorce petition, which was filed Monday in Los Angeles.

The filing states the couple separated in January, shortly after their 16th wedding anniversary.

The couple has a 15-year-old son together.

Gilbert, who played Laura Ingalls on "Little House," is seeking joint custody of their son and no spousal support from Boxleitner.

Carrey-ing on he is ...

Jim Carrey is launching his new website with a bang.

The 49-year-old actor posted a video love letter to "The Help" star Emma Stone on www.jimcarreytrulife.com Wednesday that many online deemed "creepy." The one-minute, 53-second video shows Carrey speaking into a hand-held camera and sincerely professing his love for the 22-year-old actress.

Carrey says Stone is "all the way beautiful. Not just pretty, but smart, and kindhearted" and that "if I were a lot younger, I would marry you." He goes on to say they would have "chubby little freckle-faced kids."

The popular video crashed Carrey's new site early Thursday. Carrey said on Twitter that the video "was a comedy routine."

Stone has not responded publicly to the video. Her publicist did not reply to an email seeking comment Thursday.
