Actress Samantha Morton has revealed she was convicted of making threats to kill as a teenager.
During a riot at a Nottingham care home, Morton used a knife to scare an older girl who she says bullied her.
The actress told The Guardian newspaper: "I was physically abused and I retaliated." She added:"the only person I hurt in the end was myself."
Morton, who was sentenced to 18 weeks in an attendance centre, says the events "embarrassed" and "humbled" her.
Morton explained to the paper that the children's home was on fire and police were already on the scene when she picked up the knife and threatened to kill the girl.
The actress said: "I didn't touch her - wouldn't have touched her - but the police restrained and then arrested me.
"I was locked in a cell for three days. It was terrible. I just sat there thinking, I don't want this life - I'm not a petty criminal. I'm not a thug. I was so ashamed of myself" the actress added.
Morton was charged with attempted murder but after the case went to youth, then crown courts, she was convicted of the lesser charge of making threats to kill.
The conviction has had an impact on her adult life as she has had difficulties in getting visas to film in America.
The actress, whose recent roles include Myra Hindley, Marilyn Monroe and Mary Stuart, told The Guardian: "When I did Sweet and Lowdown, I had to sit down with Woody Allen and explain everything. Awful. It happens all the time."
Morton was first placed in care as a baby and, after a brief spell living with a father she says was physically abusive to her, grew up in a variety of foster and care homes. Her teenage years included periods of homelessness and drug taking.
Her directorial debut, The Unloved, is based on her experiences and will form part of the upcoming Britain's Forgotten Children season on Channel 4.
Miley Cyrus has stepped in to quash rumours she has revived her romance with ex-boyfriend Nick Jonas - insisting they are just "best friends".
Speculation about the former couple - who split in 2007 - began to brew earlier this month (Apr09) when Cyrus teamed up with the Jonas Brothers to record a new song. The 16-year-old singer/actress, currently dating model/singer Justin Gaston, was subsequently spotted enjoying a lunch date with her ex - sending internet gossips into a frenzy. But Cyrus is adamant she is not reviving her relationship with Jonas, insisting they have just remained good pals since the split.
She says, "We aren't back together. I don't think people know how to make an ex-boyfriend into a best friend and it seems impossible. But when you have known each other as long as we have - we did have such a great relationship. Even he has said, 'We don't know what will happen in the future but for right now, we know we are best friends.'"
They're best friends y'all! Gaston has nothing to worry about lol

Jailed former Prison Break star Lane Garrison has reached a financial settlement with the family of the teenager who was killed when he crashed his car in 2006.
Garrison pleaded guilty to vehicular manslaughter and driving under the influence of alcohol after Vahagn Setian was killed and two 15-year-old girls were injured in the drink and drug-fuelled California crash.
The actor was jailed for 40 months in October 2007 and Setian's parents have since launched a civil suit against him.
They were joined by crash survivor Michelle Ohana, who spent two months in a wheelchair following the accident.
Now Garrison has agreed a financial settlement with the Setian family and Ohana. The amount of money paid out has not been disclosed, reports TMZ.com.
The actor was ferrying the teenagers home after a Hollywood party when he lost control of his vehicle.

Sorry no poll today. I was hoping to cut and paste from yesterday's but you can't recycle poll codes apparently. I'll have to remember to save a txt file for it next weekend.
My analysis is that people wanted something really cheesy given our economy. I think we'll see similar results when DANCE MOVIE (Wayans bros spoof) is released. 17 Again and Fighting might flip flop positions when the final results are released tomorrow given how close they are. I wouldn't mind watching Zac and Channing do a little flip-flop action, if ya know what I mean and I think you do.

Her latest film is a departure from the collected women she generally plays on screen. In Julia, from French director Erick Zonca, Swinton plays an alcoholic careening out of control who ends up bonding with the young boy she kidnaps for ransom. It's a gritty, raw performance in a small-budget film that marks a return of sorts to Swinton's earlier work.
Back Stage: You say you didn't set out to become an actor. When did you realize you had become interested in acting or are you interested?
Tilda Swinton: I don't know that I'm that interested in acting, to be honest with you. I started performing in plays when I was at university. I was a writer, and I stopped writing and started performing; one took off when I stopped doing the other. I was never really interested in the theatre as such; I was always interested in film. I think performing in films is my way of being on a film set, which I love. It feels like a distraction to me. But I never set out to be a performer. I never intend to be in another film, and then someone asks me to be, or we dream up some idea together, and I say, 'Okay, this will be the last one.' And it seems to go on and on.
Back Stage: Have you ever had to audition for a role?
Swinton: I'm trying to think. I did read a scene for the Coen brothers last year, which they were amazed I would do. I was amazed they were amazed because apparently there's a whole etiquette I'm not aware of that says if you've been in a couple of films, you don't read. Which I find very strange, because how are the filmmakers supposed to know whether you can do it or not? I was very happy to read.

Oh no, Daddy Knowles is gonna flip over this! Beyonce’s upcoming
I Am..2009 Tour is not selling out instantly like expected. Several tickets are still available for almost every single date, including ones in New York City, Chicago, Los Angeles, Atlanta, and many more.
Judging by early ticket sales, Beyonce will definitely bring money in. However, as an insider has told me, ticket sales are nowhere as strong as expected. “They were hoping to add multiple dates to the tour and it doesn’t look like that’s going to happen.” An extra date was added in NYC but low ticket sales in Chicago and other cities have forced the plans for multiple dates down.
It was highly rumored that Daddy Knowles wanted Beyonce to play in huge stadiums like Dodger’s Stadium in Los Angeles, Soldier Field in Chicago, and Giants Stadium in New Jersey. “Thank god this didn’t happen,” my insider tells me. "Either those shows would have been cancelled or there would have been more empty seats than filled ones.”
Daddy Knowles and other Beyonce psychophants will probably blame the economy. However, both U2 and Madonna have both recently posted stadium sellouts of 50,000 seats or more. Bruce Springsteen, despite his recent album bombing, has posted multiple arena sellouts in many cities. Perhaps Daddy Knowles and Beyonce shouldn’t be that upset; all the reverb created by the empty seats should create some great sound effects.
Britney made it look so easy.
Tour home ghosties spook Jacko
WORRIED Michael Jackson has pulled out of renting a 28-bedroom mansion during his UK summer tour - because it is said to be haunted.
Jacko, 50, said he doesn't want ghosts frightening his children. He also feared 18th-century Foxbury Manor at Chislehurst, Kent, could not be made secure. He was about to pay a £1 million deposit for an an eight-month stay when he was shown a video made by aides and ruled it out.
He is now looking at a mansion 15 miles away at Sevenoaks which is monitored by CCTV and guards and has no history of the paranormal.
Jacko intends to use a helicopter to fly to and from 50 dates at the O2 arena in London.
Tickets for This Is It shows are on sale online for up to £10,000 a pair.
Jacko has vowed to make the shows his UK finale and has promised a treat for fans.
Silly, Michael. All you have to do is look at them and you'll be safe!

Style Guy: What is the inspiration behind your collection?
Lauren Conrad: The inspiration behind my new line for Kohl's is the relaxed but chic California lifestyle. Basically items that are cute, comfortable and can go from day to night.
SG: Who approached who? Did you go to Kohl's, did Kohl's come to you?
LC: It was mutual. I had been looking into major retailers for quite some time and I think they were looking into me. We met in Milwaukee and the rest is history.
SG: What are your thoughts on discount shopping?
LC: I think everyone likes to get great items at a "bargain". It really isn't discount shopping, it is smart shopping.
SG: How do you shop to be economical and frugal?
LC: I think you buy staple pieces in basic colors so you can wear them over and over and make the outfit look different by changing accessories.
SG: As a young entrepreneur, what are your focuses while starting a new venture in these economic times?
LC: My focus is and always has been to provide clothes that I would wear myself. Stuff that can take you from day to night and can be dressed up or down. Staples every girl should have in their closets.
SG: As a role model for young girls-- what are your summer style tips?
LC: Dress for your body type and never wear something you don't feel comfortable in.
The fashionable Queen of reality TV has been writing her first book "LA Candy" that will be out June 16th, and she continues to be a spokesperson for Mark cosmetics. Not just a fashion savvy starlet, LC is a full on entrepreneur!
This is such a smart business move for her, and I hope it does really well. I've never shopped at Kohl's, but I will definitely check out her line once it comes out. And I wish EVERY girl knew how to dress their body. Whether you're fat or skinny, they are things that you should not wear.

Update: Casey Aldridge Charged in Single Car Crash
We've learned Casey Aldridge was charged with careless operation of a motor vehicle (a misdemeanor) after last night's crash -- and no other car was involved.
Cops tell TMZ Casey was driving on the LA 606, which is in the Tensas Parish in Louisiana, when he lost control of his F-150 at around 1:30 AM. Law enforcement sources say Casey was initially taken to the Riverland Medical Facility in Ferriday, LA -- which is right across the border from Mississippi.
Casey is currently at the University of Mississippi Medical Center in Jackson, MS.
Previous post talking about his injuries:
Casey Aldridge could have been screwed, but got real lucky -- he's going to recover from this morning's car accident.
We just spoke with a close family member/Baptist preacher who says Aldridge did NOT have surgery, but did suffer mild brain trauma.
As we first reported, Casey and 3 other passengers were in a single car accident early this morning in Louisiana.
His F-250 flipped over and Aldridge was airlifted for treatment.
The family member said Aldridge suffered a skull fracture around his hairline and will be kept at the University of Mississippi Medical Center for 2-3 days for observation.
Jamie Lynn Spears is at his bedside.
We're also told one passenger suffered a broken collarbone, one is getting X-rays on his hip and the third just suffered some bruising.

Chatting with Captain Awesome as the fantastic 'Chuck' season finale approaches
Talk about unfair.
Quizzed via e-mail about his Chicago-area roots, Ryan McPartlin, who plays Captain Awesome on "Chuck," mentions his favorite hot dog place (Portillo's), his favorite club (Hub 51 -- he loves that the bar serves Pabst Blue Ribbon in cans), his favorite pizza (Lou Malnati's deep dish) and his favorite breakfast place (Adelle's in Wheaton).
"My life revolves around food," he said.
Anyone who's ever seen McPartlin on "Chuck" -- and noted how frequently the actor appears shirtless on the show -- would be shocked to learn that he's such a fan of carbohydrates. In moderation, of course.
The deal with the comically perfect Awesome is that he's, well, awesome in every possible way. The character, a doctor who is engaged to Ellie (Sarah Lancaster), Chuck Bartowski's sister, is every inch the clean-cut all-American good guy. It's fitting, since this Glen Ellyn native and graduate of Glenbard South High School played football at University of Illinois (McPartlin, who played tight end, modestly noted that he was "more of a tackling dummy than a player.")

“She’s determined to do as much as she can for local kids as they’re a lot less fortunate than she is.”

|Armed robbers fled after discovering the home they had broken into belonged to 'tough guy' actor Dolph Lundgren. The masked raiders tied up the star's wife and terrorised her into handing over cash and jewellery by threatening her with knives. But they cut short their raid on the house near Marbella, Spain, after spotting a family photo of the action star and his children in one of the bedrooms.
Police are still hunting the three attackers. An insider said: 'Things might have turned out very differently if Dolph had been in.' The criminals fled as soon as they realised the owner of the house they had raided was someone they wouldn't want to come up against in a fight.
'They left Anette pretty traumatized. She's Dolph's angel and anyone who messes with her is messing with him.'
|The Swede, who turns 52 in November, still has a six-pack from training up to six days a week in his local gym. He recently took part in a six-round exhibition fight against a Russian wrestler and boxer in Moscow.
He has been married to jewellery designer wife Anette Qviberg for the past 15 years. Other celebrities with homes in the area - including Simon Cowell, Alan Sugar and Antonio Banderas - are thought to have upped security as a precaution. A source said: 'Police have got very few leads. All three burglars wore balaclavas and they've no real description to go on. 'They're looking at CCTV footage to see if they can advance the inquiry. Dolph's away on business a lot and he's increased security to try to avoid a repeat.
'Anette has even spoken about leaving the area. But Dolph's persuaded her it's a one-off and they should stay put for now.'

Twelve-year-old Nick Jonas lights up a room. Whether he’s performing songs from his upcoming CD, portraying a mischievous teacup on Broadway or exchanging high fives with inner-city kids, Nick’s love for God radiates on those around him.
Last December hundreds of kids from inner city Patterson, New Jersey, swarmed into a crowded community center to receive Christmas presents. The Radicals, a kids’ ministry group from Nick’s church, led worship, performed skits and invited the children to receive the best Christmas present — Jesus Christ.
Dressed in jeans and a T-shirt, Nick walked on stage and said, “It doesn’t matter if the world is pulling you down. “With Christ you have everything.”
Nick has always felt comfortable holding a mike. When Nick was 2, he climbed on top of a coffee table and started singing into his grandma's turkey baster as a mike. When his grandma warned him to get down, he said, “No, Grandma, I need to practice. I’m going to be on Broadway.”
In kindergarten while his friends laughed at cartoons, Nick watched musicals. “I watched ‘Peter Pan’ five times a day,” he says. “I would watch every single movement — the dancing, how they acted, how their mouths moved when they sang.”

This season Idol is sporting its best group of singers ever, and its strangest production choices. First they add another judge, then they add a bizarre entrance for the judges, then they limit the mentors (and subsequently one of the mentors - Quentin Tarantino - isn't even a singer). About the only positive result of these changes is less Ryan Seacrest. Now, we find out that next week they'll feature songs of The Rat Pack. If Disco and Motown are dated, The Rat Pack are pre-historic.
If you and/or your parents are under forty you're unlikely to have much exposure to The Rat Pack. The Rat Pack were a group of friends in the sixties who were also performers. The main singers in the group were Sammy Davis Jr., Dean Martin, and Frank Sinatra. Some other performers were sometimes considered part of the pack. One of these was Judy Garland - I'm betting Garland will be included to expand the contestant's song choices.

Wake up Wiggles: fans see red over website
IN THE red, yellow, purple and blue world of the Wiggles the colour of money now seems to be the primary one.
Australia's richest performers have ventured further into cyberspace in a move that has alienated quite a few fans who feared the entertainers have dived too deeply into their pockets.
Wiggles Inc on Friday launched wiggletime.com, taking preschooler followers and their parents into an online world where user pays.
There, according to Dorothy the Dinosaur, the Wiggles character who has been spruiking the strange new virtual world for weeks now to fans, they'll be able to explore, play and learn with all the old Wiggle themes as well as buy merchandise, DVDs and book tickets for shows.
Assuringly, she said, the new website was also the new home of the once-free Wiggles Fan Club and would feature many of the old benefits, including concert alerts and monthly e-newsletters, new games, activities and videos.
Recent converts to user pays, the Wiggles are charging fans an annual cost of between $85 and $103 to join their virtual world. (Liz Note: that is around 61-74 American dollars)
Some of the money - $12 or $24 depending which package the preschooler decides to take up - will be donated to UNICEF.

BETTY WHITE - GOLDEN GIRLS PAY TRIBUTE TO ARTHUR
Veteran actresses BETTY WHITE and RUE MCCLANAHAN have paid tribute to their GOLDEN GIRLS co-star BEA ARTHUR, who died on Saturday.
The actress passed away peacefully in her sleep at her Los Angeles home after losing her battle with cancer aged 86, according to personal assistant Dan Watt.
Arthur, who starred in the hit show from 1985 until 1992, won an Emmy Award for her role as Dorothy Zbornak in the sitcom, which chronicled the lives of three retirees in Miami.
And co-stars White and MCClanahan fondly recall the seven happy years they spent with Arthur on the series.
MCClanahan tells Entertainment Tonight. "(Thirty-seven) years ago she showed me how to be very brave in playing comedy. I'll miss that courage. And I'll miss that voice."
White adds, "I knew it would hurt, I just didn't know it would hurt this much. I'm so happy that she received her Lifetime Achievement Award while she was still with us, so she could appreciate that. Bea was such an important part of a very happy time in my life and I have dearly loved her for a very long time. How lucky I was to know her."

From Academy Award-nominated documentary filmmaker Kirby Dick (This Film Is Not Yet Rated) comes OUTRAGE, a searing indictment of the hypocrisy of closeted politicians with appalling gay rights voting records who actively campaign against the LGBT community they covertly belong to. Boldly revealing the hidden lives of some of the United States’ most powerful policymakers, OUTRAGE takes a comprehensive look at the harm they’ve inflicted on millions of Americans, and examines the media’s complicity in keeping their secrets. With analysis from prominent members of the gay community such as Congressman Barney Frank, former NJ Governor Jim McGreevey, activist Larry Kramer, radio personality Michelangelo Signorile, and openly gay congresswoman Tammy Baldwin (Representative, Wisconsin 2nd district), OUTRAGE probes deeply into the psychology of this double lifestyle, the ethics of outing closeted politicians, the double standards that the media upholds in its coverage of the sex lives of gay public figures, and much more.
I really liked This Film Is Not Yet Rated, and this looks to be pretty good, too. What do you think, ONTD?

Beyonce Knowles was a hellraiser as a teen and even tried to run away from her strict parents.
The singer reveals she changed her mind when her mum Tina called her bluff.
Knowles says, "I definitely ran away and she definitely told me, 'Holla!' (Goodbye!) She was watching and I had made the decision (to run away) and I was like, 'Maybe I won't run away.' She tested me."
But the star insists her mum would never have let her run away for real, adding, "I'm from Houston (Texas). I'm a southern girl, so I was raised like that... but she wouldn't have left me on the side of the road, definitely not."
The day has finally come for Heidi Montag to officially become Mrs. Spencer Pratt. And on Saturday in Pasadena, California, the duo better known as Speidi finally tied the knot. MTV News got all the details from Spencer's sister and Heidi's bridesmaid, Stephanie Pratt.
"It was amazing," she said shortly after the ceremony ended. "Heidi looked amazing. She was wearing a million dollars worth of diamonds over a strapless Monique Lhullier dress."
Stephanie, who wore a yellow gown from BCBG, admits that although Heidi was trying to stay composed during the ceremony, it was hard for Stephanie to contain herself at times.
"I was up there, and her back was towards me, so I don't know if she was crying," Stephanie said. "But she was getting mad at me if we would start crying so that she wouldn't start crying."
Heidi's sister, Holly, was also a bridesmaid, and Stephanie said, "Holly really kept it together. Everything worked out great."
Much like Heidi, Spencer, whose groomsmen were his friends Brian and Sean, also kept his cool during the ceremony. "He was really good. He was really happy."
The ceremony, which Stephanie guesses had about 200 guests, was a lot bigger than expected and included the Pratt parents. "My parents were there," she said. "They were very emotional, like most parents would be."
Unlike the couple's previous attempts to marry in Mexico and at a Los Angeles-area courthouse, this time around the duo had a ceremony in a church, just like Heidi always wanted. "This is with the family. There was a legal priest, and the ceremony had prayers. It was completely different."

LOS ANGELES (AFP) – Mia Farrow is to start a hunger strike next week in a bid to draw attention to the humanitarian crisis in the war-torn Darfur region of Sudan, a statement on the actress's website said Thursday.
The 64-year-old said from Monday she would begin a water-only fast as a gesture of solidarity and as "a personal expression of outrage" at deaths from starvation, thirst and disease in Darfur.
Farrow said her fast was prompted by the Sudanese government's expulsion of 13 international aid groups from the region last month. Farrow called on world leaders to pressure Sudan into reversing the decision.
"I undertake this fast in the heartfelt hope that world leaders who know what is just and right will call upon the Government of Sudan to urgently readmit all of the expelled agencies," said Farrow.
Farrow told People magazine she had set herself a target of three weeks.
