This sucks for these people and their families.
DreamWorks Animation will be axing an estimated 500 jobs from everywhere inside the studio, and the reason why is because Jeffrey Katzenberg says so!

As if there was any doubt!
Shrek — a.k.a. the Mike Myers, Cameron Diaz, and Eddie Murphy franchise that has raked in nearly $3 billion — is getting a fifth installment!
While Dreamworks has yet to go public with their timetable, the company's CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg has just reassured the world that the fiercely funny animated fairy tale will get at least one more sequel!

Anywho, the 65-year-old has made not one, but THREE couples' dreams come true in the last two months by performing at their wedding.

Everything this charming stud does
makes our heart race and our edible boxer-briefs stiffen inspires those around him!!
It turns out the Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network are honoring the acclaimed actor and his pretty-fly partner Simon Hall and bequeathing upon them the Inspiration Award at the GLSEN Respect Awards.
