Jennifer Garner and Violet arrive in Boston, wait for car seat


 Jennifer Garner and Violet Anne, 7 1/2 months, arriving at Logan Airport in Boston by private plane on Tuesday evening. Jennifer and Violet had been in Arizona the past few days while shooting The Kingdom, but came home to visit Ben Affleck. 
  However, the attempt to leave the airport did not go as smoothly as everyone originally anticipated. According to the Boston Herald, Jen and Violet got into the SUV waiting to take them to Cambridge only to find that there was no carseat installed. Jen was apparently "adamant" that one be found, and
"took the baby in the terminal and didn’t come out until someone returned with a seat...When the guy did come back with one, it took him about 20 minutes to figure out how to secure it. She wasn’t happy.” 

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner to raise Violet in Boston area

Us Weekly reports that Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner have decided to make the Boston area their permanent residence, instead of Los Angeles, where they were previously based, in an effort to raise daughter Violet Anne, 8 months, in "as un-Hollywood an area as possible." Ben and Jen were both raised on the East Coast themselves - Ben just outside of Boston in Cambridge, MA, and Jen in West Virginia.  The couple lived in Boston for most of the spring and early summer this year, and also spent time in the city early last fall while Jen was still pregnant.

Us Weekly also points out that in moving to Boston,  the couple will be much closer to Violet's grandmother, Ben's mother Chris, and could perhaps hit her up for some free babysitting - but she may already have booked sitting dates with her other grandchild - Indiana August, 2, son of Casey Affleck and Summer Phoenix.

Is Nicole Richie too skinny to shop?

Free Image Hosting at www.ImageShack.us

Did Nicole Richie take that phrase “shop until you drop” too seriously?

The super-skinny reality show star reportedly fainted while doing a little retail therapy. Richie — who has admitted that she’s too thin but has denied that she has an eating disorder — collapsed while browsing at Kitson, a chic LA boutique, on July 15, according to Life & Style.

“She was looking through a rack of clothes when she suddenly fainted and hit the floor,” an “eyewitness” told the mag. “The staff helped her to a chair and offered her something to eat. She shot back, ‘No!’ and mumbled something about it being ‘so hot.’” Although Richie turned away food, she did accept a glass of water, reports the mag, and after about 20 minutes “was steady enough to leave.”


Jessica and Dane's Mutual Admiration

Is Simpson seeing Cook?

Free Image Hosting - www.supload.com

"I don't feel right about dating yet." That's Jessica Simpson, explaining her empty postdivorce dance card to OK! magazine. But has the officially Nick Lachey-free starlet, 26, already changed her mind about diving back into the dating pool?

Despite repeatedly declaring they're merely pals, Simpson and her "Employee of the Month" co-star Dane Cook, 34, "are seeing each other," says Us Weekly, which claims the two recently "snuggled" at a Los Angeles hot spot.

"It's getting a lot more serious," says a Jessica insider, who adds that the funnyman may have ended his relationship with singer Raquel Houghton "in part" because of Simpson.

But Jessica, who reportedly rebuffed the recent advances of Zach Braff and last month dismissed reports linking her to Jared Leto, once again denies the Dane romance rumblings in the pages of OK!, although she's plenty effusive in her praise of the comic.

"Every time I'm frustrated, I'll e-mail him, and he'll e-mail back with a suggestion or an idea," she gushes. "He's a great support, a solid friend and a really good guy."

Cook, whose MySpace profile lists his status as "single," is equally enthusiastic about Simpson, so much so that he even salutes her keen intellect.

"She's a whip, this one," he raves to "Entertainment Tonight. "You can't put one by her, no way." (He's obviously never shared a can of Chicken of the Sea with her, but moving on ...)

Cook is also quick to quiet talk that they're anything more than chums, telling "ET," "No, I am not dating Jessica Simpson. But she is beautiful and lovely. Once I met her, I found that she was a very passionate person like myself about trying to be creative."

Meanwhile, the shiny toothed blonde celebrated her 26th birthday on July 10 by striking various poses in an itty-bitty bikini while vacationing in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, with her ever-present parents and pals-cum-minions Ken Paves, her mane wrangler, and CaCee Cobb, her ex-assistant.

According to Us Weekly, the revelers jetted in on Saturday and holed up at a 6,500-square-foot home that rents for a relatively thrifty -- by celebrity standards anyway -- $1,760 a night. After getting their fill of sun, sangria, Mexican food and margaritas, the group flew home to Los Angeles on Tuesday.

The sojourn appears to have done Simpson a world of good, with an insider assuring People that she's "the [happiest] she has ever been."

She's also apparently the most philosophical she's ever been, in an "I Will Survive"-meets-"I Am Woman" sort of way.

"Every decision you make determines who you are. If you make a bad one, you fix it. It makes you stronger," Jess sagely tells OK! "The last year has been very intense for me. I've learned that being me is okay. I have no regrets."

Brigitte Bardot 'Ashamed to Be French'

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

PARIS - Brigitte Bardot, angered over what she called France's insensitivity to the plight of minks, has threatened to move to Sweden.

The French film star, who runs a foundation for animal rights, wrote a letter Wednesday to Swedish Prime Minister Goran Persson calling his nation one of only a few countries "that takes into consideration animal well-being."

Bardot also contacted the French Finance Ministry to criticize France for attacking Sweden's proposal for new European Commission rules on conditions for raising minks in Sweden.

"The intervention of my government makes me ashamed, ashamed to be French," she wrote.

While Bardot admitted that her image and international renown have always been linked to France, she said: "To the contrary of (film legend Greta) Garbo, who left Sweden to finish her days in the United States, perhaps I will leave France to finish my days in Sweden, since today, I feel much closer to Swedish sensitivity than to the French insensitivity."

She also encouraged Sweden to push ahead with its proposal to improve conditions for the "millions of unfortunate minks raised for their fur."

'Sixth Sense' Star in Hospital After Crash

LA CANADA FLINTRIDGE, Calif. - Actor Haley Joel Osment was hospitalized early Thursday after he apparently lost control of his car while heading to his Los Angeles area home, authorities said.

Osment, who was nominated for an Academy Award for his role as a boy who could see dead people in "The Sixth Sense," was driving a 1995 Saturn about 1 a.m. when the car collided with a brick pillar and flipped, said Los Angeles County sheriff's Lt. Greg Sisneros.

The 18-year-old actor was awake and talking following the crash, Sisneros said. He had been alone in the car and was taken to Huntington Hospital in nearby Pasadena.

Sisneros had no information on his condition, and an emergency-room receptionist said no one under that name was at the hospital.

Osment is set to appear in the upcoming "Home of the Giants." In the film, he plays a high school journalist covering a basketball team as it heads toward the state championship.

La Canada Flintridge, a suburb of Los Angeles, is about 14 miles northeast of downtown.


I love Haley! Hope he's OK.

Kate Hudson’s son Ryder injured at a park.

Kate Hudson was furious after learning her two-and-a half year old son Ryder was injured by an older child while playing in a New York City park on Monday.

The star was in town doing publicity for her new movie You, Me and Dupree, when she received a call that her son had been involved in an accident.

She explained: "Ryder had his first big accident today. He's fine.

"Ryder was at the park and some big kid that's like nine-years-old or something was in the wrong area, knocked him over, and he hit his lip and busted his lip open and got all bruised everywhere.

"I got that call that is like the worst call to get: 'There's been an accident at the park'.

"But thank God I wasn't there, I would have drop-kicked that kid to like the West Side Highway. I would have been so mad! I would have been like: 'Where are his parents?'

"He's really into the cowboy thing, so he immediately looked at himself in the mirror and got on his horse and said: 'I'm a real cowboy now'. He took it like a little man."


No romance for Nick Lachey

Nick Lachey has rubbished claims he is in a new relationship.

The pop singer - who recently divorced ex-wife Jessica Simpson - has recently been spotted cosying up to TV presenter Vanessa Minnillo.

However, Nick insists he is single and says he doesn't have the time to have a girlfriend.

He told More magazine: "I'm single. I don't even have time to do much - it's all about work."

Nick, 32, also admits he is still struggling to get over his failed marriage.

He said: "There are things every day that remind me of her. Like when I turn on the TV and 'Newlyweds' is on. I miss Jess, but I have to respect that the relationship is over."

But despite pining for Jessica, Nick is hopeful he will find love again - one day

He added: "I hope I'll find love again! I don't think there's a limit on how many times you can fall in love. No two situations are the same. For me it will happen when it's meant to."

wah wah wah TMZ makes Paris cry

Paris Hilton says she cries sometime after reading the cruel comments about her posted on TMZ.

In an exclusive interview Wednesday, after finishing a meeting with her publicist Elliott Mintz, Hilton agreed to talk to TMZ's Harvey Levin about thousands of messages TMZ users have posted, many of which are, as Hilton says, "mean and sadistic."

Levin asked Hilton about such comments as, "Paris is just an overused human condom," "Paris is like a fart in a mitten. You know it's there, you can't stand it, but you can't get rid of it," and "Would you please drop over dead or commit suicide you damn slut."

Hilton said "I'm far less promiscuous than any of my friends." As for the infamous sex tape with ex-lover Rick Solomon, Hilton said "I'm judged because of something that an ex-boyfriend did to me. I'm not a slut at all."

Hilton says that many of the TMZ comments are "very hurtful" to her and that some make her cry. She says "They think I don't have any feelings."

British glamour model Jordan has miscarried a baby.

The 28-year old wife of Peter André was rushed to a hospital in London Friday after complaining of stomach pains.

She is now recovering at her East Sussex home with her hubby and two kids, Junior and Harvey.

A pal of the couple told British publications: "It's impossible to describe how upset they both are. They wanted to keep the whole thing secret and hoped no one would find out. She was only a few weeks into the pregnancy — but hadn't had her three-month scan, so told only a handful of people."

And just two months ago, Jordan told Channel 4 about how much she and wanted another rug-rat.

She said: "Pete and me really want another child. We'd love a little girl. I'd have to call her Pink or Princess, because she'd be my princess."


Dakota Fanning Raped By Permission for Money and Naked Guys With Swords

Cute-as-a-button child star Dakota Fanning, who turned 12 in February, is venturing into sexually disturbing territory in a movie being filmed in North Carolina.

The screenplay for "Hounddog" - a dark story of abuse, violence and Elvis Presley adulation in the rural South, written and directed by Deborah Kampmeier - calls for Fanning's character to be raped in one explicit scene and to appear naked or clad only in "underpants" in several other horrifying moments.

Fanning's mother, Joy, and her Hollywood agent, Cindy Osbrink, see the movie as a possible Oscar vehicle for the pint-size star. But despite Fanning's status as a bankable actress - whose movies, including last year's "War of the Worlds," have earned more than half a billion dollars since 2001 - the alarming material seems to have scared off potential investors from the under-$5 million indie project.

"The two taboos in Hollywood are child abuse and the killing of animals," a source close to the situation told me. "In this movie, both things happen."

Fanning's carefully choreographed rape scene has already been filmed. But then the production - which also stars Robin Wright Penn, David Morse and Piper Laurie - was shut down for lack of funds. Penn, who's also an executive producer, gave a pep talk to the dispirited cast in the days leading up to the shutdown. The desperate producer, Jen Gatien, daughter of former club czar Peter Gatien, sent out an SOS to New York entertainment entrepreneur Lawrence Robins. Robins located emergency investors, filming resumed, and the movie is scheduled to wrap tomorrow.

"The subject matter is very tough," Robins told me, "but I was attracted to it because in the end it's a story about human understanding, about a little girl who's dealt a very bad deck of cards, but finds solace in the music of Elvis and survives."

The script requires the preteen actress to confront tougher challenges than Brooke Shields and Jodie Foster did when, at Fanning's age, they played child prostitutes.

"It's not just the rape scene - the whole story is challenging Dakota as an actress," Fanning's longtime agent, Osbrink, told me. "And I've never been so proud of her in my life. I've seen the dailies, and in every scene she gets better and better."

Method Man Airs Out Radio Host Wendy Williams.

Rapper/actor Method Man recently had some harsh words for gossip radio host Wendy Williams, after Williams made on-air comments about the Wu-Tang Clan member’s family.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Apparently the WBLS-FM disc jockey told her listeners about Method Man’s wife and her battle against cancer, which until then was a private matter unknown even among her family members.

Method Man addressed the situation during a video interview on the Internet hip-hop show “The Break Down,” and he let Williams have it.

"She can say whatever she wants to say about me, but you don’t attack my fucking family,” Meth said.

“Her family members didn’t even know she was sick; the people that lived around us didn’t know she was sick until you said that shit. Everybody looking at her, staring at her. You know how uncomfortable that makes somebody feel, especially someone that's going through chemo? Stupid ass bitch.”

He ended it by saying that he “ain’t no NSync, Justin Timberlake ass nigga” and that Williams need not look for him for a future appearance on her radio show.

Meanwhile Method Man’s latest album, 4:21 … The Day After, is scheduled for release on August 29.

EXCLUSIVE UPDATE: Haley Joel Osment Flips Car, Alcohol Suspected

Free Image Hosting - www.supload.com

LA CANADA FLINTRIDGE, Calif. (July 20, 2006) -- Actor Haley Joel Osment was hospitalized early Thursday after he apparently lost control of his car while heading to his Los Angeles area home, authorities said.

UPDATE: An LA County Sheriff's Department official tells Access Hollywood that they suspect alcohol was involved in the collision involving Haley Joel Osment early today. A blood sample was obtained after the young actor was taken to Pasadena's Huntington Memorial Hospital this morning. The sample will be tested and results will be known within three weeks. If alcohol was indeed a factor, they will take the case to the District Attorney for prosecution. The sample will also be tested for the presence of drugs.

Requests for a statement by Access to Osment's manager have not yet been returned.

Osment, who was nominated for an Academy Award for his role as a boy who could see dead people in "The Sixth Sense," was driving a 1995 Saturn about 1 a.m. when the car collided with a brick pillar and flipped, said Los Angeles County sheriff's Lt. Greg Sisneros.

SCARLETT JOHANSSON has joined NATALIE PORTMAN and ERIC BANA for THE OTHER BOLEYN GIRL. The film is based on PHILLIPPA GREGORY's historical novel, with Johansson and Portman playing two fiercely ambitious sisters, MARY and ANN BOLEYN, who were rivals for the heart of 16th century British monarch KING HENRY VIII played by Bana. Executives from BBC Films, which originally acquired the book rights and made a 2003 TV film starring NATASCHA MCELHONE and JARED HARRIS, are also producing the project. Filming is scheduled to begin this autumn (06) in London.

Some people will say that this will involve two of the most boring actresses ever, and others will say that this will join two of the most talented actresses of their generation. I agree with the later. Interesting tidbits, Scarlett's role in the Horse Whisperer was originally Natalie's, but she dropped out of the film to do Anne Frank on Broadway, and Scarlett lost out the role in V for Vendetta to Natalie.

Bon Jovi goes country, hanson *first post*

Rocker Jon Bon Jovi plans to surprise fans by moving into country music by recording an album in Nashville, Tennessee.

The 44-year-old singer and his bandmate Richie Sambora are expected to record the disc with veteran country musicians.

"The change is in the music - it's time for change. 'Keep The Faith' was why we stayed relevant in the '90s. In 2000, we changed again when we did 'It's My Life'. That's when a new generation discovered us," Contactmusic quoted him as telling the New York Post.

"We didn't plan any of that, it just happened. I can smell change coming again. I'm thinking of a Nashville sessions record. I'd like to knock out a quick record with a few country writers and artists and me and Richie. I'd like to get two or three artists to do duets with. I'd like to give a couple of Nashville songwriters a chance to shine, and Richie and I would write a few songs to prove we could hold our own with these guys," he added.

The singer made history by becoming the first rock band to top the US country chart earlier this year with his award-winning duet with Sugarland's Jennifer Nettles, "Who Says You Can't Go Home." (ANI)

French comedy director Oury dies

Thu Jul 20, 8:35 PM ET

French comedy director and writer Gerard Oury, whose 1966 film "La Grande Vadrouille" was the biggest-selling homegrown movie in the country's history, died Thursday at his home in St Tropez. He was 87.

Starring the comic duo Louis de Funes and Bourvil, "La Grande Vadrouille" sold a staggering 17.2 million tickets, a figure not bested until "Titanic" set sail in 1998 with 21 million tickets.

Oury's other credits included "Le Corniaud," "La Folie des Grandeurs" and "The Adventures of Rabbi Jacob." Tributes from the world of arts and politics flooded in with French president Jacques Chirac hailing Oury as a "master of laughter and magnificent creator of myths." He will be buried in Paris on Monday.

MTV super boy band

MTV's "super boyband" members announced
Wednesday, July 19 2006, 12:40 BST - by Neil Wilkes

Five former boyband members have come together to form a new "ultimate boyband" with the hopes of staging a triumphant return to the charts.

The group is being put together for a new TV series, Totally Boyband, which airs on MTV from September 17.

The hopefuls in the as-yet untitled five-piece are Another Level's Dane Bowers, age 26; Jimmy Constable of 911, 34; Steps star Lee Latchford Evans, 31; S Club 7's Bradley McIntosh, 24; and 37-year-old Danny Wood of pioneering boyband New Kids On The Block.

The band, who will be managed by Charlotte Church's mentor Jonathan Shalit, met for the first time at a press conference this morning. All claimed to be excited at the prospect of staging a comeback, although Wood was more realistic about their chances. "If it doesn't work out I can just go home," he said, having admitted that he had "no idea" who his new bandmates were.

Cameras will now follow the boys as they write and record their first single, due for release on October 23.

Britney, it’s not just the internets that are worried...it’s Donald Trump too!

Britney, Britney, Britney

by Donald J. Trump

I really want to have sympathy for Britney Spears. And I hate to give the impression that I'm picking on her. But not long ago Britney went on television with Matt Lauer on NBC's "Dateline," pleading for her privacy.

She admitted that she was an emotional wreck but the interview ended up being an incredible train wreck. First, Britney looked terrible. Her skirt was too short. Her makeup was messy. When she opened her mouth, it only got worse. She blamed the paparazzi for her bad image. She didn't admit that she made a mistake by driving with her baby on her lap.

And even though she described her marriage to her husband as awesome, somehow Kevin never managed to show up for the interview. Now I have a problem criticizing Kevin because he goes around and tells people that Donald Trump is his hero. The fact is, it is a pretty strange relationship.

During that interview, Britney complained about all the media attention and tearfully begged to be left alone. I almost bought it.

Until I saw her posing nude - and very pregnant - on the cover of the most recent issue of Harper's Bazaar. She has absolutely nothing to promote - no new record, no movie, no book. So, to a lot of people, it sounds like the only possible thing she could be doing is trying to keep her name in the news.

Inside the magazine, the layout includes a photo of Britney in a backless evening gown carrying her son...and another shot of her lying down on a fur coat wearing nothing but a G-string.

Britney has seen better days. She performed four or five years ago at the Trump Taj Mahal and she was great. Now it seems as if everything's slipping away from her. Britney, don't let that happen. Don't let it slip away. Keep your head on straight.


ah Donald, always self loving . Seriously this article is gold.

Justin revisits mall roots

09:07 AM PDT on Thursday, July 20, 2006
The Associated Press
According to showbiz lore, Justin Timberlake got his start at a "Star Search" audition in a mall. The music he made with 'N Sync became the soundtrack for a generation of mall rats, and it was hard to pass a Sam Goody, Waldenbooks or Spencer Gifts without seeing his mug plastered on posters and magazine covers.

Ostensibly, Timberlake is no longer courting the teenybopper set. But it would be impossible for him to strip the mall gene from his creative DNA, as evidenced by the sleek, S&M-referencing "SexyBack." The collaboration with Timbaland, which was shipped to radio about a week ago, goes for an edgier sound but is still aimed squarely at middlebrow American taste.

It's been almost a decade since Daft Punk released their futuristic single "Around the World," but their influence on more mainstream acts is as strong as ever. First, this summer's Busta Rhymes hit "Touch It" directly sampled Daft Punk's "Technologic," and Timbaland might as well have -- the squawking, computerish beat in "SexyBack" borrows heavily from the French duo's sound.

Like the cook at a casual-dining chain restaurant, Timbaland takes a recipe developed by a groundbreaking, obscure chef and prepares it for the masses. The average listener will find the catchy Timberlake track exotic but palatable -- the auditory version of Cheesecake Factory's spicy ahi tempura rolls.

The song is less a chance to show off Timberlake's singing talents than a vehicle for his playful, club-friendly persona. While we know Timberlake can sing, the track uses a vocoder-like effect to make his voice husky, tinny and a little staticky -- almost as if he recorded his vocals by leaving a voicemail on Timbaland's cell phone. The artist doesn't even bother singing the chorus, leaving that to the deadpan spoken-word of the producer.

By digitally distressing the quality of his singing, Timberlake has created a sound that should go over well with people who shop at Abercrombie for brand-new jeans that are purposely ripped, frayed and splotched with paint.

So how does the former Mouseketeer, as he puts it, bring "sexy" back? With a reference to sadomasochism that somehow comes off as about as provocative as a Victoria's Secret window display: "See these shackles, baby, I'm your slave/ I'll let you whip me if I misbehave." Given Timberlake's boy-band resume, I'm just as likely to believe he's getting shackled and whipped as I am that Ashlee Simpson didn't have work done on her nose.

These days, Timberlake is clearly going for a more grown-up sound. But "SexyBack" shows that while you can take the boy out of the mall, you can't take the mall out of the boy.

First post! (sorry if I've done something wrong!)


The Big Brother housemates are starting to get a bit restless after 62 days in the house, but they might not be bored for much longer.

Comedy actress Dawn French is being lined up as an extra housemate to surprise the contestants, according to the Daily Star.

It is thought that the Vicar Of Dibley star will take part in a task with the hapless housemates.

In another reported twist, contestants better be careful because any housemates that break the BB rules may be shifted next door - to a redesgined punishment zone

The front door of the second house has been painted grey, prompting rumours that show bosses are transforming it into a "prison cell".

A Channel 4 spokeswoman refused to confirm or deny the rumours, saying: "It is simply speculation".



The trailer for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles IV was released today!

Writer/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles co-creator Peter Laird has said that this movie will completely ignore the third film, in which the turtles traveled through time to feudal Japan. Also, the film will be based off of the first film and portions of the second, particularly the origin of the turtles and Splinter, and the death of The Shredder.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles IV due out March 30, 2007.

My only gripe is that it will be completely animated, unlike the previous three films, which were live action. With all the technology we have now, doing a live action movie shouldn't be as difficult as it was in the 1980's/1990's.

Regardless, some people look forawrd to X-Men, Superman, Spiderman, Pirates. But I'm SO looking forward to TMNT!

    AC/DC - "Safe in New York City"

Nano Nano

Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are going to be remaking Mork and Mindy into a feature length film! Everything is in negotiations at the moment. They feel this would be an excellent project to work on together. Steven Spielberg declined to direct this one saying that Tom's gotten too crazy even for him to work with. Tom is looking for an open minded director who will work in exchange for a ride on the mother ship. Yes, that ship is loaded with the latest technology including a device that speaks to L. Ron Hubbard from the home planet. I know, totally sweet!

And yes, Tom will of course have the white Scientology tent set up on location for free donuts and emeter readings. What about little Suri? Well, they have officially hired on Kate's old baby sitter Jessica, to care for the tyke who is now closing in on her first birthday. Oops, have I said too much?


There is no way this could be true. It's not April's fools is it? Utter bullshit, but the photo made me giggle.

Making the Band 3

Today I was in this part of Brooklyn called DUMBO (Down Under Manhattan Bridge Overpass) doing a performance with the Day camp i work at. We were in the Brooklyn Bridge Park which is really beautiful because it looks ovr lower Manhattan, and what not. Although we had a section of the park roped off, there was a crew setting up a stage. Being who i am, i went up to the two guys giving orders to the minions and asked them who was going to be performing.

They told me that tomorrow, July 21, at 8pm, the all-girl group from Making the Band 3 were going to have a performance for their TV show. The dudes, which turned out to be Producers (or so they told me), told me to come and see the show and bring my friends. I'm not really into the show or wannabe 90's Pop Group sensations, but i thought that some people here might be interested if they live in the NYC area and/or want to have a chance to be on TV

Cameron looks like Zippy, says Robbie

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Robbie Williams says he'd fancied Cameron Diaz for ages - but when he met her he thought she looked like Zippy from Rainbow.

The pop star talks about how his crush for the film star ended when he spotted the resemblance to the mouthy character from the 70s children's TV show.
According to the Daily Mirror, Robbie says: "She looks a bit like Zippy. Crush is over. I can get on with the rest of my life."
The pair bumped into each other in Berlin last year and went go-karting together.

I've always thought that she looked like the Joker but this works too.

MADONNA and her film-maker husband GUY RITCHIE are planning to start searching for a child to adopt in October (06), once the pop superstar finishes her Confessions world tour. The Material girl - who already has two children, Lourdes, nine, and Rocco, five - wants more kids so the couple have hired the adoption lawyer who worked for their friends BRAD PITT and ANGELINA JOLIE. The 47-year-old singer and Ritchie have also talked to adoption agencies in both the US and the UK. An insider tells British newspaper The Sun, "Madonna and Guy are serious about adopting a baby. They had a meeting with a British adoption agency but were not satisfied that it was the right one. "So they found another agency in America and had a meeting with them about becoming parents to an orphaned baby. "They both love children and are desperate to expand their family." Earlier this week (begs17JUL06), Ritchie's father JOHN RITCHIE said, "I love my grandchildren, and of course nothing would make me happier than if they do adopt. "How lovely to have another one, it sounds like such great, great fun. "I'm sure both Rocco and Lourdes would love it as they are so close and another sibling would be super."
