The actor passed away Sunday. He was 93.

Rooney — whose original name was Joe Yule Jr. — had been in ill health for quite some time.  His death was attributed to natural causes, TMZ reports.

Rooney was one of the most famous child actors in entertainment history. He played the role of Andy Hardy in The Hardy Boys in 20 films, and famously teamed up with Judy Garland for Babes in Arms — which was a huge hit back in 1939.

Rooney also starred with Elizabeth Taylor in National Velvet, and Audrey

It wasn’t the farewell Billy Dee Williams originally anticipated, but when the Star Wars icon bid adieu to Dancing with the Stars on Monday night because of injury, he held his head high.

“I had a great time,” the star, 77, told PEOPLE just after announcing his decision to depart. “I had a blast. I wish I could continue.”

Despite coming in with the lowest score just before the first elimination, the fans voted to bring Williams back for another week of competition.

“I’m sorry that I’m not going to be around, but my back just can’t handle it,” he said. “My health is more important.”

Williams’s partner Emma Slater is in full support of the actor’s early exit from ABC’s hit show.

“I knew the back was a problem for Billy,” she told PEOPLE. “We were already kind of taking it slowly, but for me, surprisingly, this decision wasn’t as difficult as it could have been because it really was the right thing to do. We made peace with that. We more directed it as a celebration of the time we’ve had together.”

Williams, who credits his back problems with years of film stunts, doesn’t have regrets.

“I can’t say it’s not worth it,” he said. “I did what I did and I had a good time and made a lot of money.”

Although he complained mid-interview that his “back is really hurting,” he explained that he’s “been advised not to do surgery,” adding, “I don’t know what I’m going to do about it.”

Lisa Marie Presley’s Slim-Down: I’m at My Teenage Weight

People Exclusive

03/29/2014 at 02:50 PM EDT

Like millions of women, Lisa Marie Presley has tried fad diets over the years – with mixed results. Recently spotted in Australia looking slim, the singer-songwriter has finally discovered what works.

“Eating clean and organic is best,” Presley, 46, tells PEOPLE from Down Under, where she and her husband, guitarist Michael Lockwood, are touring in support of her album Storm & Grace.

The daughter of the late Elvis Presley sticks to vegetables, chicken, fish, nuts, fruit, almond milk and freshly made juices. Currently at her “happy” weight, she also walks 30 minutes every other day and lifts light weights, usually with Lockwood, her husband of eight years.

It’s all paid off: “I’m at the weight I was at when I was a teenager,” Presley tells PEOPLE. “I love the way clothes fit right now.”

In addition to watching how much she consumes – “I eat half of what I am given, especially when I have carbs or grains,” she explains – Presley also makes better choices overall.

“I just had avocado with feta cheese on toast with some spinach,” she says. “Last night I had vegetable chicken curry. I watch the rice, obviously. I’ll have a fistful.”

Presley took a good look at her health a few years ago. “Knowing my family history – my father’s side is totally not healthy and they have shorter life spans [her father died at 42], while my mom’s side is super fit with long life spans – I didn’t know where I would land. So I said, ‘Okay. I’m going to play it safe and try to be as healthy as I can be.’ “

She decided to make health a priority when she went on tour in 2012. “Being on the road for a three-month run gets intense. I can be really, super disciplined, but I can also be really not disciplined,” she says, laughing. “I love Mexican food. So we have to watch that. I’ll have one chicken taco.”

Presley admits that touring also makes it tough to fit in regular workouts. “I can’t always get off the bus and walk for 30 minutes. But the show is 90 minutes long and I’m constantly moving and my adrenaline is pumping, so I’m sure that is burning calories.”

While touring is good for her waistline, so is running after her 5-year-old fraternal twins with Lockwood, Harper and Finley.

“The twins are with me on tour and are constantly on the go, so they keep me moving,” she says. “I do chase after them, but it’s not just that. There’s always so much going on with the little ones and the older ones, too [daughter Riley, 23, and son Benjamin, 20, from her first marriage to Danny Keough]. It’s a lot!”

6f34MTO 010554 Selena Gomez Nervous to Testify in Justin Bieber LawsuitSELENA Gomez is FURIOUS!

The singer and actress is “not happy that she’s been dragged into” one of Justin Bieber‘s lawsuits.

Gomez was subpoenaed on March 27 to testify on behalf of Bieber in an upcoming deposition for one of his lawsuits.

The lawsuit stems from a May, 2012 altercation Justin had with a photographer

The star is worried that her testimony might just make things worse for the Baby hitmaker.

“Selena is nervous to testify because she doesn’t want to say anything that could negatively affect Justin. She’s more than willing to support him but she’s not happy that she’s been dragged into the case,” an insider told HollywoodLife.

“She thinks Justin is innocent to begin with and that all these paps are just trying to get money.

“Her mom is more worried about her health than anything else right now. Stress and lupus don’t go together, and it’s really important that Selena take care of her body and mental state. Having to testify is really stressful.”
