Woody Allen’s 'Cassandra’s Dream' trailer

The international movie trailer for Woody Allen’s next film, Cassandra’s Dream is now online. The film tells the story of two Cockney brothers (Collin Farrell and Ewan McGregor) in south London and their relationship with a young woman (Hayley Atwell) who lands in London on her search for fortune. She crosses the two men by accident on her path and when one them falls in love with her, she becomes aware of her power to attract the opposite sex and uses this to the point of leading the two brothers, who are in financial difficulty, into crime, and creating a dangerous rivalry between the two men.

The movie premiered at a film festival in Spain a couple months back and his been very well received (9.1 on imdb). Most people didn’t latch on to Allen’s latest (Scoop), and this looks to be a return to the non-comic genre story that launched his resurgence (Match Point) a couple years ago.

Check out the trailer here.

Gummi Bear drinks Diet Coke? Why even bother?!

In other Gummi news, Page Six reports that just like his brother, Fat Elvis, Gummi is broke! Sources say they have been spotted trying to cash checks for small amounts. Reportedly, their family has cut them off. How the hell is Gummi going to eat?! They better give him some money or bitch is going to start eating small animals and children!

Not only that, how is he going to pay to fix a staph infection on his leg! LOL! TMZ reports that Gummi contracted some flesh eating bacteria that his left his body full of sores.. He told TMZ, "I am literally being eating alive!" Um....that could take years if not decades.

He's apparently on this crap called Zyvox which costs $4,000! He can just borrow some from Paris. Above is Gummi at Paris' Malibu pad this past weekend.


I really hope they are broke but I seriously doubt it


David Tennant thanks charity comedy organisers

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Doctor Who star David Tennant has thanked organisers of a comedy show held in aid of a hospice that cared for his late mother.

Several acts themed around the famous Timelord took to the stage in Edinburgh for the one-off night, raising around £1,500 for the Accord Hospice.

Tennant's mother Helen McDonald died in July after a five year battle with cancer.

The 67-year-old was cared for by the hospice in the family's home town of Paisley, Renfrewshire.

She spent much of her spare time raising money for Accord, and Tennant has since launched a campaign to raise funds for the home.

The actor could not make the comedy show as he was filming a new series of the Saturday night Sci-Fi drama.

But he told participants in a statement: "I am so sorry I cannot be there but I am shooting the new series of Doctor Who.

"I am very chuffed that this has been done to raise money for charity and my mother would have loved this.

"Many, many thanks and have a great night."

An audience of 90 people watched a bill that featured rising comedy stars Mitch Benn, Toby Hadoke and Charlie Ross.

Kristen Bell on Lost, Heroes,Veronica Mars, Legally Blonde

Congrats on the Heroes gig! Is this some kind of evil plot of yours to send fanboys over the edge?
Kristen Bell: Absolutely. It is all part of my plan for world domination – and by world, I mean Fanboy World.

How did the gig come about? It's no secret that you've been fielding many offers, including from Lost.
Bell: Obviously, I was in an extremely lucky position. I've kind of felt like I've been on a sugar high the last couple of weeks. Having any of those options… it still feels surreal. How do you make the decision between [Lost and Heroes]? Basically, being able to stay in [Los Angeles] was a little bit of a factor for me [in terms of turning down Lost]. But I was honored to even be considered by Lost. I really, really was, because I love that show. But I have social relationships with a lot of the people that work on Heroes, through so many random connections. So it was sort of funny that so many of my friends had been working on this show. I spent a lot of time with a few of them at Comic-Con. I was actually sitting on the train [back from San Diego] with Zachary Quinto and Masi Oka and some of the writers were on the train and they were like, "Hey, if you ever want to come on Heroes, give us a call!" And I sort of joked back, "I'd love that!" Later on I said to Zach, "Hey, if they were serious, I would love to work with you guys." And somehow, somebody made it happen.

Zac Efron forever!

The dreamboat, along with costar (and possible squeeze) Vanessa Hudgens and the rest of the gang, pulled off a masterstroke this weekend with Disney's High School Musical 2, attracting 17.24 million viewers on Friday.

This makes their original movie's premiere the single most-watched basic cable telecast in history, Reuters reports.

The sequel to 2006's surprise runaway hit High School Musical outscored the previous ratings record holder, ESPN's Monday Night Football game on Sept. 23, 2006, which averaged 16 million viewers.

The numbers for HSM2 also make it the most-watched program on TV since the season finale of FOX's hit drama House on May 29 drew 17.26 million viewers, according to Nielsen Media Research.

K-Fed on 'One Tree Hill' - more info

Kevin Federline has landed a guest-starring role on the CW's One Tree Hill.

In the multi-episode arc, the would-be rapper plays Jason, "a cocky, enigmatic frontman" for No Means Yes, a legendary rock band in the show's fictional setting of Tree Hill, N.C, according to the network.

"Kevin came in and (auditioned) and he did a great job," Mark Schwahn, the creator of One Tree Hill, tells PEOPLE. "He really seemed like a sweet guy and I just felt that he would be great in that."

Schwahn acknowledges "people will say this smells of stunt casting" because of Federline's "really high public persona right now."

"I have to honestly say he was a good fit for the character," says Schwahn. "I don't know anything about the kid but he seemed very sweet and very sincere about working hard and embracing the opportunity. It's just about being good in the role."

This is the budding actor's second dramatic role. Last year, he guest-starred on an episode of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation as a young thug named Cole Tritt.

For the role, Federline donned a pig mask – and was a part of the episode that scored CSI an Emmy nomination for outstanding non-prosthetic makeup this year.

Of course, in 2005, Federline and his then-wife, Britney Spears, appeared on the UPN reality show, Britney & Kevin: Chaotic, which documented the early stages of their relationship.

And Federline played a fry cook who dreams of stardom in a Nationwide insurance ad that aired during the Super Bowl. As he told PEOPLE at the time, "I was skeptical at first. The whole idea of poking fun at myself – that's where I was iffy."

Meanwhile, Federline's former flame, Shar Jackson, with whom he has two children, is also doing a guest appearance on a CW show: She plays a young mom on Everybody Hates Chris in an episode this fall.


Multi-episode arc? Ugh. I repeat: DO NOT FUCKING WANT. But lol @ "would-be rapper."

House Exes Will Be 'Okay'

The wedding may be off for House costars Jennifer Morrison and Jesse Spencer, but the show will go on, according to fellow cast member Lisa Edelstein.

"Jennifer and Jesse are consummate professionals," Edelstein told PEOPLE at the In Style 7th annual Summer Soiree in Beverly Hills on Thursday. "They really have never brought their relationship onto the set to begin with, so they're not bringing their breakup onto the set either."

Morrison, 28, and Spencer, 28, canceled their wedding plans last week. "After much consideration, we have decided not to get married," the couple said in a joint statement. "We are still very close, and we look forward to continuing to work together on House".

As recently as July 23, Morrison, who attended a Television Critics Association event at the Santa Monica Pier with Spencer by her side, was still wearing her engagement ring.

Though House is back in production, a representative for the show could not confirm whether Spencer or Morrison has returned to the set.

Despite the broken engagement, Edelstein was hopeful that the relationship may not be beyond saving. "I don't even know if they're actually broken up or they're just not getting married as planned," said Edelstein. "They're beautiful people, and they're good friends, and I really think that it's all going to be okay."

Panettiere: 'I'm Not A Dumb Blonde'

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Teen starlet Hayden Panettiere hates being patronised because she's blonde - insisting she is secretly super-intelligent. The 17-year-old Heroes actress enjoys proving her critics wrong when they meet her and realise how smart she really is. She says, "I find it funny to watch people patronise me or think I'm dumb because I'm blonde and young. "I know I have a higher IQ than 99 per cent of the brunettes out there. It gives me more of a sense of accomplishment when I achieve things after people have underestimated me."


portia de rossi to have lesbian sex with joely richardson in niptuck

From YEEEAH! -- Actress Portia De Rossi will finally fulfill every Arrested-Development-loving man's fantasy this fall (short of a movie announcement), appearing in multiple full-on sex scenes with fellow female Joely Richardson in the upcoming season of "Nip/Tuck." While this announcement might have been more shocking if it were a sex scene with a dude, as no character on Nip/Tuck appears to be interested in members of the opposite sex anymore, I will nonetheless be looking forward to seeing how these two naked ladies go about creatively covering up one another's nipples for another installment of envelope-nudging basic cable porn.

Lesbian actress Portia de Rossi is going to have some superhot lady lovin with Joely Richardson in her upcoming role on “Nip/Tuck.” And what do Paris Hilton and Jenna Jameson have to do with this, exactly? Well, they’re both blond whores who’ve made out with chicks. And nobody takes pictures of Joely Richardson. According to Stuff

The British actress will bed openly gay Portia after her character Julia McNamara falls for the mother of a boob job patient, played by the former Ally McBeal star. The pair’s scenes so far are said to be so explicit that even crew members used to the series’ frequent sexual storylines have been shocked.

An on set source said: “Portia’s character is going to be involved in a torrid relationship with Joely’s character over about 10 episodes. It’s going to be shocking stuff. So far, the pair’s sex scenes have been wild. Even the crew have been shocked by what they have seen.”

Janeane Garofalo joins '24' cast

Actress-comedian Janeane Garofalo is set to co-star on Fox's real-time drama "24" this coming season.

On the Imagine TV/20th Century Fox TV series, Garofalo will play a government agent who is part of the team investigating the crisis befalling Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland) and company.

Garofalo is the second major cast addition to the action drama, which is going through a major revamping coming off a lackluster sixth season. Cherry Jones was hired last month to play the new president.

After two production delays related to major changes to the story line, "24" is now slated to begin production on its seventh season Sept. 10.

Omarosa will try once again to work for Donald Trump in a new celebrity version of NBC’s “The Apprentice” that will also feature Kimora Lee Simmons and former heavyweight boxing champion, George Foreman.

"There are more than a hundred others who want to be on the show," Trump told the New York Post. However, he’s hoping three more celebs – Britney Spears, Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan – will agree to join the cast of “Celebrity Apprentice.”
"We're negotiating with Britney right now. Can you imagine her doing it?" Trump told Page Six. "We're not sure what will happen. She's a f***ing mess. And that little reality show she had did nothing. But she likes the idea of being on television and I think she'd be great."

Recent jail inmate Hilton, he says, "wants to be on, and we're thinking about it, but I don't know if we're going to do it."

As for Lohan, currently in rehab, Trump says: "Another f***ing mess. We haven't asked her yet, but I'm going to call her this week. It would a positive thing for her to do . . . for all of them."
Trump mentioned several months ago that he would be interested in having his arch-enemy Rosie O’Donnell join the cast, but the former co-host of “The View” responded with the quote: "It will not happen in this lifetime or beyond."

Other confirmed celebrities to appear next season include Jim Cramer, Carmen Electra, Joan Rivers, Naomi Judd, Pete Rose, Dana Patrick, Tony Hawk and Jeff Gordon.
The stars will compete each week to raise money for various charities.

Vivica A. Fox: Jessica Simpson 'Diva' Rumors Are 'Lies'

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Vivica A. Fox is shooting down talk of Jessica Simpson's alleged diva-like behavior on the set of their new film together, Major Movie Star – labeling recent reports nothing but "vicious lies."

Fox, a favorite on Dancing with the Stars, tells PEOPLE she was "shocked" when a story surfaced from Major Movie Star's Louisiana location accusing Simpson of being a "spoiled brat" by supposedly refusing to walk from one place to the next without a driver, eating alone in her trailer and barely speaking to her costars, especially Fox.

"Those vicious lies they put out were just that – lies," Fox, 43, said Saturday during an event for the fashion label Young, Fabulous & Broke at the LG House in Malibu.

In fact, Fox said that Simpson was anything but a diva. "She was so much of a team player. She was gracious and so down to earth."

In the comedy, which also stars Cheri Oteri and Steve Guttenberg, Simpson plays a movie star who suddenly falls from grace and finds herself broke. She then enlists in the U.S. Army with the hope the service will change her life.

Fox plays a tough sergeant who whips Simpson's character into shape. Speaking of Simpson, Fox said, "She showed a lot of physicality, like 90 percent of all her own stunts, and she sacrificed so much of her body for this movie"

Literally. While filming last week, Simpson accidentally injured her nose with a prop gun.

"During the scene," remembers Fox, "she looked really intense when I looked in her eyes, and I just thought she was really into it. But when the director [Steve Miner] yelled, 'Cut,' Jessica came over to me and said, 'Vivica I hit my nose with the gun.' "

Explains Fox, "We got ice immediately ... Most girls would've stopped right then and there, but she was ready to do another take. She's wonderful."

Jeremy Piven has argument with Mom

Is Jeremy Piven taking his role of Ari Gold on HBO's "Entourage" a little too seriously? Spies at Nobu Malibu spotted Piven having "a very loud argument" with his own mother Friday night. "It was so venomous, the entire restaurant could hear them. I don't know what they were arguing about, but it was loud," said the onlooker, who noted that perturbed patrons included CAA agent Rick Nicita, who was sitting at a nearby table with Rob Reiner and a group of friends. A rep for Piven did not return calls.

Hayden Panettiere Jokes: Turning 18 Means Cigarettes & Porn

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Hayden Panettiere plans to celebrate turning 18 with a big party – and notes that the milestone also allows her to indulge in a few previously forbidden vices.

Asked by David Letterman on his Late Show Monday what the big birthday means to her, the Heroes star answered: "I don't think much changes when you're 18 – maybe the way people treat you. But I think the only things I can do is buy cigarettes, porn and, if I get in trouble with the law, I'm kind of screwed."

After a momentary thought, she added that one additional bonus of being 18 is being able to tell her parents during a fight, "You can't talk to me like that, I'm an adult."

When Letterman expressed some disappointment in her response, saying that he was "hoping for something a little more inspirational," and asked about the ability to vote, Panettiere said she planned to register on Tuesday.

The actress is getting involved with Norman Lear's "Declare Yourself" campaign. As Panettiere explained, "It's stressing how important it is to vote and to be part of your election, so I'll be registering to vote."

As for how she plans to celebrate her natal day, she said, "We're going to have a big party. I think it will be me biggest party yet – except for when I was 2, my mom used to get the big [inflatable] Moon Bounces and we had a hell of a party."

Grease sucks

This is not the one that I want!

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Reviews for the Broadway revival of Grease are sucking! NBC’s reality TV series You’re the One That I Want chose Max Crumm and Laura Osnes to play the lead roles.

The Hollywood Reporter: “Tackily produced and utterly lacking the sort of fun comic spark that the original production and certainly the movie possessed (though not the most recent Broadway revival in 1994), this is a Grease that only will be appreciated by young TV viewers who don’t know any better.”

Variety: “The most dismal thing about this Grease is that aside from the two discoveries plucked from a mediocre TV talent pool and thrust into this sorry walk-through, no-one appears to be trying very hard. Like the drag-queeny wig slapped on Sandy when she finally conforms to the cool-kid ethos by unleashing the bad-girl within to win Danny, it all seems somewhat counterfeit.”

The TV show may have bombed but the strong ticket sales ($14 million box-office advance) may mean Grease could be around longer than expected. Apparently Broadway and reality TV go together like rama lama lama ka dinga de dinga dong!

awe I feel so bad for them! I liked Max a lot.

Paparazzi threaten Naomi Watts

A LUNCH by the seaside at Malibu turned violent for Australian actor Naomi Watts, her partner Liev Schreiber and their newborn son when paparazzi surrounded, taunted and threatened them.
Schreiber shoved one male photographer, swore at others and chased two down a busy road. 
"Are you out of your mind!" Watts, surrounded by about 40 paparazzi, said as she tried to leave Tony's Taverna, a popular Greek restaurant in Malibu, yesterday. 
Watts and Schreiber have been hounded by the paparazzi since the actress gave birth to son Alexander Pete Schreiber last month, but the Hollywood couple exploded yesterday. 
Footage of the incident was posted on celebrity website, 
One male paparazzo is heard threatening Schreiber. 
"You better sit down before I knock your ass out," the paparazzo says. 
Schreiber, who has a foot injury, looks like a lion trying to protect his cub from hungry jackals. 
"You f***ing disgust me, it's a f***ing child and I have one f***ing foot!" Schreiber angrily tells one male paparazzo before shoving him. 
Schreiber then turned to a female photographer standing nearby. 
"Are you enjoying yourself?" Schreiber, who stands 1.91m tall, said to the woman. 
"Don't you touch me," the woman replied. 
Watts, Schreiber and their son met Australian actress Rebecca Rigg at the restaurant. 
As they left, paparazzi surrounded Watts's Audi station wagon. 
Watts appears distressed as they tried to put baby Alexander in the back seat of the car. 
Last week, police were called to escort Watts and a female friend from a supermarket near her mansion in the LA suburb of Brentwood when paparazzi were stalking her. 
Watts and US-born Schreiber met while shooting the drama The Painted Veil in China.

Darren Hayes Arrested Over Alleged Racist Attack

Former Savage Garden man is bailed...

Former Savage Garden singer Darren Hayes has been arrested in London for an alleged racist attack on a waiter at a Thai restaurant last month.

Hayes was taken in for questioning by Police on Friday night for racially abusing staff at the Busaba Eathai on Wardour Street on July 22.

Hayes was later released on bail but has refused to comment on the situation.

A Scotland Yard spokesman confirmed: "We can confirm that a 35-year-old man was arrested by Westminster police on suspicion of racially abusing a member of staff.

"He was arrested after voluntarily attending a Central London police station by appointment. He has been released on bail pending further enquiries, until the 21st of September."

Staff at the restaurant were questioned by Police the day after the incident and the victim has since returned to work according to the Sydney Morning Herald.

The incident follows Hayes's public criticism of the Prime Minister, John Howard, on a visit to Australia a week ago, for his stance on homosexuality.

Hayes hit out at the need for his partner, Richard Cullen, who he married in London last year, to fly to Australia on a tourist visa.

"It makes me angry and frustrated," Hayes told News Ltd newspapers. "I'm Australian and the way the law sits I can't bring my partner home as my partner.

"That to me is an infringement of my civil rights - a very un-Australian thing.

"I would never have voted for John Howard and I encourage people not to. I don't think he speaks for this country in the same way I don't think George Bush speaks for the US."

Source & Source

I don't believe this for a minute. Darren is one of the sweetest men, and would NEVER do anything of the sort. it's a shame that this has to happen today, the day his album was released in the US. I hope Darren is okay and can overcome this.

Peter, 56, who played the Timelord in the 1980s, will pull on his famous trenchcoat once again for a Children In Need special.

Bosses are tight-lipped about the storyline, written by Who scribe Stephen Moffat.

But an insider revealed: “The Doctor is forever travelling though time so there’s no reason why he couldn't catch up with a former incarnation.

“Peter was top of the writer’s list to make a comeback."

David Beckham and Justin Timberlake are the targets of an alleged Al-Qaeda murder plot.

A chilling internet video, which has been posted on YouTube, brands Becks, 32, and JT, 26, as criminal influences on young Muslims.

Fellow footballers Wayne Rooney and Thierry Henry, as well as rapper P Diddy, are also mentioned.

The warning footage was posted by a Glasgow-based website named after Al-Qaeda that encourages attacks on Westerners.

In the clip, an image of David is shown under the caption: 'What made u among the losers?' reports the News Of The World.

A caption across the screen threatens: 'Every soul shall taste death.'

We all know Lindsay Lohan's stay at Promises rehab facility in Malibu was a bigger squandering of time and money than going to see 'I Know Who Killed Me'. If river rafting in Utah doesn't clean her up, it might be wise for the starlet to finally boot driving drunk and cocaine use, in a place that has been called 'the toughest and most successful drug detox program in the world.'

Thamkrabok monastery in Lop Buri, Thailand, 80 miles north of Bangkok, is that place. And unlike $40,000 for her stay at Promises, this if free. In 1959 the Thai government created this program in response to the rise in opium addicts, and a reported 70% of users who complete treatment at Thamkrabok never do drugs again. Amenities include steel bunks, mosquito nets, squat toilets, concrete amenities and one meal a day.

The day starts at 5AM, with chores like sweeping, which you repeat in between meditation sessions. Lights out at 8PM. The most difficult part of Thamkrabok of is taking medicine daily that supposedly detoxes the system and induces projectile vomiting. The herbal elixir, said to resemble crude oil and taste worse, is made of seeds, leaves and bark. British rocker Pete Doherty, whose heroin addiction has been well-documented, walked out of Thamkrabok after two days. Completing the program, according to one of the Buddhist monks in charge, gives:

"A great sense of achievement. And this treatment is something you never want to go through again."

In S&M video, J.Lo can't be beat

Not everyone would try to marry motherly love with bondage and domination in a dance video. But Jennifer Lopez gave it her best shot last weekend in L.A.

For two days, director David LaChapelle had her tricked out in the sort of tight, studded-leather outfit that avenging moms apparently wear when they rescue their children from sex clubs.

Never mind that LaChapelle's scenario has nothing to do with the lyrics of "Do It Well," the first single from J.Lo's forthcoming CD, "Brave." Lopez really wanted to work again with the photographer, who directed her "I'm Glad" video.

Perhaps aware that she also really wants a child, LaChapelle gave her one — a son, about 6 years old. For some reason, the kid is being held hostage in this kinky club. Enter J.Lo, kicking around bouncers the same way she wailed on that abusive husband in "Enough."

Searching for her boy, she discovers a grimy place that resembles a Petland store run by the Marquis de Sade. Opening one door, she sees a dominatrix, dressed up as a cat, whipping a man in a mouse mask and underpants. He's stretched out on a mousetrap. Behind another door is a giant hamster cage, where one woman trods an exercise wheel while another sucks water from a bell bottle.

Lopez makes her way past an assortment of pimps and hos, finally finding her boy washing dishes in the kitchen. She leads him to safety, tossing a few goons over the railing along the way.

Off-camera, a bathrobe-clad Lopez was attended to by hubby Marc Anthony. His devotion prompted one set "prostitute" to remark, "I need to find a man like that!"

The "Brave" CD is out Oct. 9, the start of La Lopez's fall tour.



The Naked Chef gets animated

Oliver to star in own cartoon

British celebrity chef Jamie Oliver has been turned into a cartoon character and will star in his own animated TV series.

The BBC reports Little J, made by Aardman Animations, the company behind Wallace and Gromit and Chicken Run, will follow the adventures of a 10-year-old Oliver as he attempts to find the secret to being a great chef.

Along with Oliver, Little J will feature characters including a depressed ham, a mad scientist called Eggs Benedict, and a culinary spiritual guide called Nonna.

The show is aimed at seven to 11-year-olds, and 52 episodes have been made, despite the fact that a broadcaster is yet to sign it up.

Oliver is quoted as saying about his new venture "I really want to pass on a little knowledge in a fun way, to really connect to the younger kids... I can't tell you how passionate I am about kids and food."

Lindsay Lohan doing well in rehab

Lindsay Lohan's latest rehab stint is bringing her closer to nature, with bicycling and whitewater-rafting excursions.

The 21-year-old actress entered the exclusive Cirque Lodge program in Utah following her July 24 DUI arrest in Santa Monica after a car chase. Since then, she's been spotted in the Rocky Mountains on field trips from the facility. She and a group hit the road Aug. 16 for a 90-minute bike ride around Orem, Utah. The next day, Cirque took Lohan and others on an afternoon rafting trip on the Provo River.

Dressed in a pirate bandana, with some of her companions wearing black painted-on pirate moustaches, Lohan "looked like she was having a good time," says a source at High Country Rafting in Provo, Utah. "They were all splashing each other and stuff."

Lohan, who was said to have relapsed just 11 days after leaving Promises rehab in Malibu, also has taken part in retail therapy while in Utah. At the Shops at Riverwoods in Provo, she was seen shopping at an Abercrombie and Fitch store and at the Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory, where she picked up $70 worth of chocolates.

"She looked healthy," a Rocky Mountain employee says. "She seemed happy."


Britain’s Look magazine makes up Aniston interview

Jennifer Aniston’s rep is denying reports that she gave an interview to Britain’s Look magazine in which she dishes on her former fling, Paul Sculfor, and a recent meeting with Brad Pitt and daughter Shiloh.

An article in the new issue of Look magazine (excerpted by The Sun claims that Aniston recently ran into Pitt and his daughter in a restaurant, and that she has plans to fly to London to see Sculfor on a regular basis.

“I was very sad last month when he went back to live in London,” the magazine "quotes" Aniston, 38. “But I’m going to be buying a lot of return tickets to Europe in the next few months so we can see each other.”

However, Aniston's rep, Stephen Huvane, says that the article is a work of fiction.

"The interview never happened,” says Huvane. “The events like Jennifer running into Brad with Shiloh at a restaurant is completely false as well, as are all the events and quotes they attribute to Jennifer."

Look also falsely quotes the actress admitting that she was “turning into Bridget Jones” after she and Pitt, 43, divorced, spending days “lying on the floor surrounded by ice cream.”

If you were going to make up an interview with Jennifer Aniston, wouldn't it have been juicier than that? How about a fist fight with Angie followed by a kinky threesome.


Bale's new bat-suit is a literal pain in the ass

Christian Bale
’s new bat-suit has proved to be a pain in the backside – and a few other places.

Filming on The Dark Knight has been hit by the British actor’s uncomfortable undies.

“As always there have been issues with a number of props and costumes, including the bat-suit,” revealed an insider on the set of the latest Batman movie.

“A number of alterations have had to be made as filming has gone on. One quandary the costume department didn't foresee was when Christian had to film a scene strapped to a harness, the suit was chafing in a rather unfortunate way.

“The problem has now been solved, to his relief!"


Simon Cowell: I'm Qutting "Idol" in 2010

"I think by that point the public will be sick to death of me anyway and it will be time to go."

"Americal Idol" judge Simon Cowell has revealed that he plans to quit television in three years. This means that Cowell who has judged contestants on seven seasons of "American Idol", three seasons of "X Factor", and two seasons of "Pop Idol" will move on from television entirely in 2010. In 2010, Cowell will be 50 and admits that the the public will be so bored of him by then that it will be time to disappear.

Speaking exclusively to the Mirror, he says: "There has to come a point when I will step down from being on camera and remain behind the scenes because you can't keep doing this for ever."

"I have three more seasons under contract with American Idol and that will be it. And it will probably come at the same time in the UK. I am contracted for another two or three seasons in Britain and I think by that point the public will be sick to death of me anyway and it will be time to go. I've been lucky, but I also know when not to outstay my welcome."

Cowell says he plans to move behind the camera and concentrate on his music and TV companies. Cowell says, "I run a record label, I run a TV company, we're making movies now - I love that part of my life. I probably get more satisfaction from making a show than being on a show. Source

I'm sorry but "American Idol" won't be watchable once Simon leaves.

Jaime Pressly's Yummy Mummy Body Secret

She may have just turned from reel-life hottie to a real-life mommy, but "My Name Is Earl" star Jaime Pressly shows no signs of baby-body blues. So how did the screen siren snap back to sexy so speedily?

"I went on the cabbage soup diet which is a detox diet, and it is definitely all about high protein and low carbs,” she told on the red carpet of Saturday’s 2nd Annual Hot in Hollywood concert to benefit AIDS organizations.

”And I started working out at the gym with my trainer 10 days after the birth — five days a week for two hours every day," she added.

But past playmate Pressly still knows how to be naughty.

“Today I went to McDonald's and ate two cheeseburgers,” she added. “You have to treat yourself every now and then.”

Did Mischa Barton beguile or bore James Blunt during a recent tête-à-tête in the Hamptons? According to the New York Daily News, the statuesque starlet, 21, made a beeline for the "You're Beautiful" warbler, 33, at a James Taylor concert, leaning down to wrap her arms around him and exclaiming, "There he is!" The two gabbed and noshed, but as Barton yammered away, "Blunt became less and less enthused," according to the paper. The inexplicably seductive singer, who was once briefly linked to Lindsay Lohan, eventually moseyed over to chat with Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen before returning to Mischa, whom he later accompanied to local club. But the actress ended up making an early exit, leaving Blunt to get his flirt on into the wee hours with "with blondes and brunettes alike."

Us Weekly, however, has a slightly different take on the evening. A source tells the mag that Blunt was "constantly hovering" around Barton, with another piping in, "He's obsessed with her and has been trying to get with her for a while." But he apparently doesn't measure up to the actress' oh-so-high boyfriend standards (her previous beaus include Cisco "Dangly Drawered" Adler and oily oil heir Brandon Davis). An insider tells the mag she "just wants to be friends."

Bale NOT approached for 'Justice League of America' movie

When rumor spread that a film adaptation of Justice League of America was being fast tracked into production, I had my doubts. Bryan Singer’s Superman: The Man of Steel would need to be pushed back, and options of Christian Bale and Brandon Routh’s contracts would have to be used, which meant one less Superman and Batman film in the can. I like the prospect of a superhero team-up flick, but I don’t see how Warner could justify wasting too hot characters in one movie. May-be down the line, a year or two, but not now. It just didn’t seem right.

Then yesterday, Ryan Reynolds made some comments about the possibility of playing The Flash in the JLA flick.

It might, yeah. I don’t really know how much I’m allowed to talk about that stuff.”

It sounded slightly more than speculative, and just enough to convince me that may-be Warner Bros is pushing the JLA movie into production to help launch some of the team-members into stand alone franchises. That logic makes some sense. But at what cost? A Superman and Batman movie?

Today IESB got the chance to sit down and talk to Christian Bale about the prospect of a JLA movie. Bale flat out denied being asked to participate in such a project.

It’d be better if it doesn’t tread on the toes of what we’re doing, though I feel that it would be better if it comes out after Batman 3.”

It seems to me that even if they were considering replacing Bale with a “cheaper” star for the JLA film, he would have been approached about it. And Bale said that he hasn’t, which seems really strange since Batman and Superman are integral for such a film to exist. Unless may-be the JLA film is done in a teen titans style with some new characters. But I just don’t see that happening either.

kanye wants to fuck timberpuss

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

NEW YORK (AP) - Kanye West considers a certain "SexyBack" singer his biggest rival.

"My biggest inspiration and biggest competition is Justin Timberlake," the 29-year-old rapper tells XXL magazine in its October issue, on newsstands Sept. 11. "He's the only other person that gets an across-the-board response and respect level - black radio, white radio."

"If Justin hadn't come out and killed the game, I can't say that my album, singles and videos would be on the same level that they're on," he says. "We push each other. I look at me and Justin like Prince and Michael Jackson in their day."

A sly dig at 50 Cent? Earlier this month, the 31-year-old gangsta rapper, whose real name is Curtis James Jackson, promised to quit his solo career if West's new album, "Graduation," outsells his upcoming CD, "Curtis." Both albums are due out Sept. 11.

West, a six-time Grammy winner, tells XXL that he's "never cared about being No. 1." Record sales, he figures, aren't as important as how the music connects with people.

"I feel like my lyrics are, if not THE, then equal to, the realest lyrics out," he says. "I connected with so many people without talkin' about guns and drugs. ... It's harder to go to work 365 days than shoot a person in one day."

Further, "there's nothing about wearing a pink Polo that would make anyone believe that I would hold a gun," he says.

West realizes his flamboyant style and less-than-humble public behavior - like throwing fits over not winning music awards - could hinder his chances for success.

"... When people come up to you like, 'That was really good,' you're supposed to play stupid, like, 'Wow, you really think so?'"

"Because people can't really handle the truth," he continues. "But I am the truth. I'd rather be hated for what I am than loved for what I'm not."

CelebrityBabylon caught up with Entourage star Adrian Grenier, 31, and "What's she famous for again?" star Paris Hilton, 26, in Malibu this weekend. The rumor mill has been turning ever since these two were spotted soaking up sun together a few weeks back. On August 19, Adrian was very, very, very (did we say very?) eager to confirm that he and Paris are in fact an entourage of two. Pretending not to relish in his newfound paparazzi spotlight, Grenier made a deal with CelebrityBabylon that in exchange for a short photo op, the couple would be left alone the following two days. We don't blame Adrian for wanting as much time as he can get with his new ex-con girlfriend. Judging by the fickle Hilton heiress' dating past, she might move on by the third day!

Pussycat Doll Splits With Boyfriend

PUSSYCAT DOLLS star NICOLE SCHERZINGER has ditched her toyboy lover, TALAN TORRIERO, because she hasn't got time for romance.

The sexy Don't Cha singer, 29, and Laguna Beach star Torriero, 20, have been an item since the reality TV star split from former fiancee Kimberly Stewart last year (06).

But Scherzinger has ended the romance because she's too focused on her pop career - as she prepares for the release of her first solo album Her Name Is Nicole in October (07).

She confirms the split in German magazine Yam, stating, "We're not together anymore. I'm totally focused on my career at the moment and I have to make sacrifices. I had to realise there's no time for love at the moment."


Kate Moss & Pete Doherty back together?

Kate Moss's friends and family are devastated after learning she has run back into the arms of Pete Doherty. The supermodel has been secretly staying with the drug-addicted singer at Claridge's.

The Daily Mail has learned that the pair have been living it up in a £1,500-a-night suite at the Mayfair hotel for the past five days.

On one night, friends had to be ejected by hotel security when their revelry became too rowdy and the number of guests allowed per room was exceeded.

Doherty, 28, was last night pictured returning to the hotel after walking free from court on a technicality following a police blunder.

He had faced jail for breaching bail conditions. But because officers didn't bring him to court within 24 hours of his arrest, magistrates were forced to let him go.

There was no sign of Miss Moss coming or going from the hotel yesterday but sources said the pair had been meticulous about leaving and arriving separately.

Tom Brady wants time off for child's birth

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Soon-to-be father and star quarterback Tom Brady knows he can't make all the calls.

He'd like a few days off to be at the birth of his first child -- "I hope so," he said Monday -- but the Patriots' schedule and coach Bill Belichick might get in his way.

"Bill has a lot to say," Brady said, "so we'll deal with it when it happens."

New England plays the third of its four exhibition games -- the one in which Brady usually gets the most playing time -- on Friday night at Carolina. The first regular season game is set for Sept. 9 at the New York Jets.

Brady refused to say Monday if his former girlfriend, actress Bridget Moynahan, is due to give birth to their child before the Jets game. But on Feb. 19, six months ago, her publicist, Christina Papadopoulos, said she "is over three months pregnant. Former boyfriend Tom Brady is the father."

He doesn't know when he'll get a telephone call telling him he's about to be, or already is, a father.

"I wish I did," he said with a smile. "That's God's decision. The good lord is making that call. So I think everybody's anxious. I'll put it that way."

I am not at all a Brady fan, but I do kind of feel like Bridget planned that baby to keep herself in his pockets. I can't imagine Giselle playing step-mommy however. Maybe we'll get lucky and a catfight between the two ladies will break out thus providing us with good ~*drama*~

You're a rich girl

I am child/young teen of the 80's and the music of that time is something I will always cherish. I grew up listening to all kinds of artists, but one of my favorites is Hall and Oates. I loved and still love their song. I have/had a crush on Darly Hall. Yup, I aging myself. Anyways, I just came across an interesting interview with him and thought I would share it with the others of that generation. Here you go!

Interview: Daryl Hall
Interview by Chris Dahlen | Photo by Courtesy of Daryl Hall

Believe it or not, Daryl Hall is an indie rocker. While the success of Hall & Oates in the 1970s and 80s-- eight #1 singles, but who's counting?-- was fed by major label dollars and the rise of MTV, they also spent years building a career, and more years rebuilding it after falling off the charts in the grunge-dominated 90s. But since the turn of the millennium, Hall & Oates have been back with new records, successful tours, and plenty of attention from the next generation, whether it's the Gym Class Heroes' upcoming Hall & Oates mash-up album, or Hall's cameo on HBO's Flight of the Conchords.

Outside of music, Hall has a passion for buying and restoring antique houses. He owns properties in New York and Connecticut, and this spring he bought a 17th century house in Maine, where we met him for this interview. He's enthusiastic about the "anything goes" attitude of the 00s, where pop, punk and soul rub elbows and nobody's too cool to dig "Rich Girl". "What's happening now is the best thing that's happened to music in 40 years," says Hall. "And it's great for people like me, because I am not easy to categorize."

Eva Mendes actually manages to score another film role

Eva Mendes
will round out the cast for Frank Miller's "The Spirit," joining Scarlett Johansson, Samuel L. Jackson and Gabriel Macht.

Pic, produced by Lionsgate and Odd Lot, will begin lensing in October at New Mexico's Albuquerque Studios.

Miller wrote the script and will direct the movie, which marks the start of a multipic pact under which Lionsgate and Odd Lot Entertainment will co-finance and co-produce together. Story centers on a rookie cop who fakes his own death so he can fight crime from the shadows.

Lionsgate has domestic and U.K. rights and is scheduled to release the film in 2009.

Odd Lot's Deborah Del Prete and Gigi Pritzker will produce along with Michael Uslan of Batfilm Prods; Batfilm co-founder Benjamin Melniker and Steve Maier are exec producers. Odd Lot's Linda McDonough and Batfilm's F.J. DeSanto co-produce.

Mendes was most recently in Columbia's "Ghost Rider" and will be seen next in Columbia's "We Own the Night." She's currently filming Picturehouse's "The Women."



DNA Confirms Another James Brown Child

A woman has proven through DNA testing that she is a child of the late James Brown, said a longtime adviser to the soul singer. The woman is the third person to determine through DNA testing done after Brown's death that the singer is their father, Buddy Dallas told The Augusta (Ga.) Chronicle on Monday.

About a dozen DNA tests have been performed. Some people have been ruled out as Brown's children, while other tests are pending, said Dallas, who would not release details about any of the newly found children.

Dallas did not return a message left Tuesday at his office by The Associated Press.

Brown's will, which is being disputed in court, names six children.

One of the children found through DNA testing is LaRhonda Petitt, a 45-year-old retired flight attendant and teacher in Houston. She said the test showed that there is a 99.99 percent probability she is Brown's daughter.

The paper reported a Florida woman confirmed she also is one of Brown's children, but told the paper she did not want to be publicly identified.

The DNA testing happened after Brown died Dec. 25 of heart failure at age 73.

One possible child of Brown's who hasn't had a DNA test is 6-year-old James Brown II, the son of Tomi Rae Hynie. Hynie was one of Brown's backup singers and said she is the singer's fourth wife. But Brown's attorneys continue to dispute that claim, and the boy and his mother are not in the singer's will.

Hynie's attorney, Robert Rosen, said she hasn't changed her mind about DNA testing for her son.

"She believes all the children should be treated equally," Rosen said. "If all the children agree to a DNA test, she will consent to one for James II."

A private guardian for the boy also opposes the test, Rosen said.

Will Britney Spears do it?

I’m talking about the MTV Video Music Awards on Sept. 9 in Las Vegas.

As I reported first, Spears may be the opening act of the big shindig. Then Mindfreak illusionist Criss Angel confirmed my exclusive when he told People magazine he’s working with Spears on the gig.

Well, now things may have hit a snag. I’m told talks between Spears and MTV may have cooled, and the embattled pop princess may not appear after all.

Guess who else has apparently been in talks to perform? Spears’ ex Mr. Justin Timberlake.

Timberlake and Beyoncé have the most nominations this year, with seven apiece.

Timberlake’s rep confirmed he’ll be attending the VMAs but referred questions about a possible performance to MTV. A rep for MTV did not comment.

This isn’t J.T.’s only possible upcoming awards-show gig. As I first reported last week, Timberlake and funnyman Andy Samberg are in talks to perform their Saturday Night Live “Dick in a Box” skit at the Emmys on Sept. 16.

The racy number is nominated for Outstanding Original Music and Lyrics.

Bette Midler Cuts Down Some Trees, Gets Fined

LIHUE, Hawaii - Bette Midler cut down more than 230 trees around one of her properties on the island of Kauai without a permit, and the state has recommended she be fined.

The staff of the Board of Land and Natural Resources recommended $6,500 in fines for having the trees felled and for building a graded road without permits required for the land zoned for conservation use.

The singer and actress will pay the fines and will follow a replanting program, her attorney Max W. J. Graham said.

The actress and movie star, who was born in Honolulu, didn't realize permits were needed to remove the trees on a vacant 58,000-square-foot parcel of land on Kauai's North Shore, Graham said.

"The whole idea with cutting the trees down was with the idea of improving the lot with native species" instead of the nonnative, invasive species that had grown there, Graham said. "It's unfortunate that a mistake was made."

The National Tropical Botanical Garden, which maintains three gardens on Kauai, will design a replanting plan that consists of appropriate native plants, Graham said.

A botanist hired by Midler after the fact said 120 Java plum trees, 100 octopus trees and 10 to 20 Madagascar olive trees that were cut down were all nonnative species. Some native trees also were removed from the property, the botanist said.

Midler, known for her longtime commitment to the environment, was once known as the Compost Queen and appeared on billboards in Los Angeles advocating green recycling containers are for yard trimmings.

Midler is set to replace Celine Dion as a headline performer at Las Vegas's renovated Caesars Palace next year.
