Cox tweets engagement

Courteney Cox says she is engaged to marry Snow Patrol’s Johnny McDaid.

The actress and the musician revealed their engagement Friday with a dual announcement on Twitter.

The pair, who have been dating for under a year, posted a selfie with matching tweets saying, “I’m engaged to her” and, “I’m engaged to him.”

This will be a second marriage for Cox, 50, who divorced actor David Arquette in May 2013 after nearly 14 years of marriage. They have a 10-year-old daughter named Coco.

Sinatra’s license nets $15,757

Frank Sinatra’s first New Jersey driver’s license with his last name misspelled sold for $15,757, while a collection of correspondence between “Gone with the Wind” author Margaret Mitchell and a Wyncote, Pa., fan went for $14,087.

And Marilyn Monroe’s notated script from the movie “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes,” complete with dialogue changes and personal acting tips, was purchased for $22,689.

The items were snapped up during a Hollywood-themed online auction that was held by RR Auction of Boston and ended Thursday night.

MacFarlane backs ‘Rainbow’

LeVar Burton’s efforts to resurrect “Reading Rainbow” got a big boost this week when “Family Guy” creator Seth MacFarlane pledged to donate up to $1 million to match any money raised in the campaign’s final few days.

With a week to go in Burton’s Kickstarter campaign, “Reading Rainbow” had raised $4 million of its hoped-for $5 million haul.

The original Kickstarter campaign looked for $1 million from fans, but with $5 million, Burton says the new online “Reading Rainbow” app would become available not just online, but on many mobile devices, and would be able to provide free subscriptions to more than 7,500 classrooms.

LaBeouf arrested at theater

Shia LaBeouf was released from police custody Friday after he was escorted from a Broadway theater for yelling obscenities and continued to act irrationally while being arrested, authorities said.

After his court appearance, the actor, 28, walked several blocks to The London NYC Hotel on West 54th Street. He declined to comment.

LaBeouf, who starred in the first three “Transformers” movies, was arrested on charges of disorderly conduct, criminal trespass and harassment Thursday night at the Broadway show “Cabaret.”

According to police, security guards asked LaBeouf to leave the Studio 54 theater at about 8:45 p.m., but he refused, used obscene language and physically interfered with employees.

Officers said he appeared intoxicated or under the influence of some kind of drug. .
