sexiest bitches in music go acoustic

Surveying the archive of Take Away Shows, it becomes evident that we film female musicians less often. And when we do, it tends to be singers we are awed by, and in front of whom we are prepared to feel intimidated – which generally ends up not being the case, as it was definitely not for Tegan and Sara. To begin with, we were the same size. Mock me if you will, but all the same, when you’re a girl who is only 1 metre 60 tall and working in music, it’s not always evident. Even better, they were friendly, pleasant, not shy (an unusual occurrence), as far from divalike as is possible. Barely five minutes after we’d met, they were telling us stories from their tour that are best not repeated on the internet.

Tegan sounds amazing in these. UNF.


Apparently everyone has a stalker

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

A man who allegedly threatened to murder Dr. Drew Pinsky's family was arrested Wednesday and charged with felony stalking ... TMZ has learned.

Dr. Drew tells us Charles Pearson has been sending him threatening messages over the Internet ... including one in which Pearson said he would kill Dr. Drew's children and make his wife eat them.

Dr. Drew also says Pearson believes Dr. Drew has placed a tracking device in his genitals.

We're told Pearson was arrested Wednesday at Pierce College in Woodland Hills, CA. He's being held on $150,000 bail.

Dr. Drew tells TMZ this is a very serious matter and that he hopes Pearson "gets the treatment he clearly needs."


Nicole Kidman's Career In Deep Trouble, Hires Angelina's Manager

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

There can be no doubt in anybody's mind that Nicole Kidman's career is in deep, deep trouble. That's because, even though she's talented and used to make $16M-$17M for a lead role in a major studio movie, she's become poison at the box office -- the female equivalent of Sean Penn (but with botox...). So it's very understandable that she now feels the need for more career guidance. I've learned that Nicole has made a major change in her representation: she's become a client of Angeline Jolie's manager Guyer Kosinski of Media Talent Group.

Kidman, who just in July shook up her PR representation by firing her publicist of 15 years PMK/HBH's Catherine Olim, hasn't had a manager since her early days as an actress. She was with Mark Epstein (quite the character) until her career really took off and she went solely with CAA. Kidman is a longtime CAA client, first with Rick Nicita, then with Kevin Huvane. But is history about to repeat itself?

Because what's interesting here is that Kosinski took Angelina away from CAA. Before Jolie went to CAA in March 2005, she was represented by just the manager. When the pair decided she needed an agent, she met with every major tenpercentery in town, then chose CAA. But then Kosinski yanked her from the agency in April 2006 after she'd spent only 13 months there. Kosinski is known to be very controlling, very secretive, very involved with his clients' lives (and hates talking to the media). I'm really interested to see what happens next...

Tim Burton + Abe Lincoln Vs Vampires

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Abraham Lincoln, sixteenth president of the United States, has been tapped by Tim Burton to kill vampires.

The last time Tim Burton and Wanted director Timur Bekmambetov got together to produce something, we got Shane Acker’s dystopian animation 9. We have higher hopes for their next collaboration, as the pair are working on an adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith’s book Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.

You might remember Smith as the man behind Pride And Prejudice And Zombies, which Natalie Portman has already snapped up to produce and star in, and which David O Russell is planning to direct.

Abraham Lincoln kicks off with the legendary US president watching his mother die at the hands – well, teeth – of the fanged fiends and swearing revenge. Smith’s tale weaves in historical facts about Lincoln’s ascension to the White House and his actions regarding the Civil War.

No studio has picked up the rights to the film yet, but with Burton and Bekmambetov producing (even though neither of them is looking to direct the film), we’re sure someone will grab it soon.

Prince Harry in Lesotho

This is a post on the coolest British Royal - and his brother.

Since people occasionally ask, Prince Harry, 25, is the younger son of the late Princess Diana and Prince Charles; Prince William is his older brother, 27. Harry is a Lieutenant in the army, William is a Flight Lieutenant in the RAF; both are grandsons of Queen Elizabeth II.

Prince Harry might just be smarter than he looks.

Prince Harry famously said he didn’t have the ‘brain capacity’ to fly an Apache attack helicopter – but now it seems he may be proved wrong.

Harry is being considered to pilot the demanding aircraft after doing well on his current training.
If Harry does graduate to an Apache, it could help his dream to return to the front line in Afghanistan, where he served in December 2008, as there is a shortage of Apache crews.
Until now, he has been learning to fly a Lynx utility helicopter, used for support and convoy protection as well as ferrying troops around; but Apaches have a more direct combat role.
And if training goes well, he could be deployed in Afghanistan at the controls of an Apache as early as next year.
One of his superiors at Middle Wallop, Hampshire, said: ‘Harry has done better on his course than we were expecting and that is why the Apache is now being considered for him.
More at the somewhat seedy source.

For the record, Harry went to one of the best schools in the country, Eton College. He left school with only 2 A Levels instead of the standard 3; a B in art and a D in geography, dropping history of art after AS level. His older brother William achieved an A in geography, a B in history of art and a C in biology, before studying history of art at St Andrews university in Scotland. Their father Charles (who left school with a B in history and a C in French) said: "I am very proud of Harry. He has worked hard for these examinations and I am very pleased with [these] results."

And the Oscar for best Hollywood lookalike goes to...


As British rising star and Oscar hopeful Carey Mulligan unveiled her latest look in time for Sunday's Academy Awards in Los Angeles, many film fans noticed how startlingly she looked like actress Mia Farrow in her younger days. While Catherine Zeta Jones is looking remarkably like Cyd Charisse these days and it's quite clear where pre-beard Brad Pitt took his inspiration...

The Worst British Movie Accents Ever

Atempting to compile cinema's worst British accents, and then whittling the list down to just thirteen, was a difficult and painful task. Those who didn't make it on the list but deserve special mention include Demi Moore in Flawless and Joaquin Phoenix in Gladiator (because those Romans did love clipped accents). But in their defence, we Brits don't make it easy: plenty of Londoners can't do a convincing Cockney, so perhaps poor, Yankee Dick Van Dyke deserves our sympathies. Anyway, here are the top ten most excrutiating attempts at a "British" accent ever on film...

13. Mischa Barton
St Trinian's (2007)

Though born in London to an English dad and an Irish mum, Mischa still manages to mangle the Queen's English with fruity aplomb in 2007's short-skirted schoolgirl remake romp. She might be forgiven the odd lapse into flat vowels when you realise her character previously lived in the US (as a highly successful PR girl, donchaknow) but there's no excusing lines like: "Before you know it you've married a footbawler and bort the Barharmas."

Crispin Glover Interview with Rolling Stone

Crispin Glover, who stars in Alice in Wonderland as the Knave of Hearts Ilosovic Stayne, recently sat down with Peter Travers of Rolling Stone magazine for an interesting interview.

Sorry, can't embed. But you can find the interview here.

Highlights include:

-Crispin singing a shaky acapella version of "Ben" by Michael Jackson
-Answering questions about BTTF:2, River's Edge, and Alice in Wonderland.
-Uncomfortable/adorable fidgeting and stammering, as always.


I am really excited to see the movie tomorrow. I'm hearing lots of good things about his performance.

Hugh Jackman Cast in Lee Daniels’ SELMA

Lee Daniels, the Oscar-nominated director of Precious, has cast Hugh Jackman in his upcoming civil rights film Selma.  Speaking to USA Today, Daniels celebrated that he had something to take his mind off award-season madness: “I have to really start casting the movie because we’re shooting it soon. The only person I’ve nailed in for sure is Hugh Jackman. It’s all over the place.” That’s interesting to note because in January Deadline reported that Robert De Niro was on board to play Alabama Governor George Wallace in the film, which is about the historic march from Selma to the state capital in Montgomery.

Jeff Bridges, with his wife Susan Geston

Kathryn Bigelow and unknown crew member

According to the latest odds from online gambling sites for Sunday’s Academy Awards, Crazy Heart’s Jeff Bridges and The Hurt Locker’s Kathryn Bigelow are heavy favorites to win Best Actor and Best Director, with 1:6 and 1:5 odds, respectively, The Hollywood Reporter says. The big races that appear to still be somewhat up in the air (Oscar humor!) are Best Picture, where The Hurt Locker holds a slight edge over Avatar, and Best Actress, where The Blind Side’s Sandra Bullock maintains slightly better odds than Julie & Julia’s Meryl Streep. The biggest lock is Inglorious Basterds’ Christoph Waltz winning Best Supporting Actor, as online bookies would require a $40 bet on Waltz just to win a single dollar.

Dogs get freaked out by "Law and Order" theme?

Apparently, the Law and Order theme song pisses off a lot of dogs. A quick YouTube search reveals dozens of videos recorded by dog owners who observe their pets flipping out when the TV show theme music begins. Does the tune contain a hidden frequency that only canines can hear?
A special nod to nastynets contributor Joel Holmberg who started it all by making this grid of 35 youtube videos of dogs reacting to the song. Joel tells Boing Boing "[I created it] when I was home visiting my family over christmas and noticed my family dog, Velvet, freaking out to theme song."

The Language of Johnny Depp

Johnny Depp has a language all his own.

Whether the 'Alice in Wonderland' star is creating his own vernacular, rambling incoherently or exploring the rarely trodden middle ground between lexeme and laughter, he may be the only actor in Hollywood who can make an art form out of saying, well, nothing.


(See ... doesn't work when we try it.)

LA Mayor shocked at celebration of RuPaul, Dennis Rodman, OJ Simpson at L.A. Black History Month

Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa expressed shock over allegations that three teachers at a South Los Angeles elementary school encouraged students to celebrate O.J. Simpson, Dennis Rodman and RuPaul during Black History Month.

The teachers have been suspended as the L.A. Unified School district investigates. According to officials, children at Wadsworth Avenue Elementary School were carrying pictures of the men at a parade Friday on the school playground.
"I am shocked and outraged by the actions of these teachers at Wadsworth Elementary School," Villaraigosa said in a statement. "These teachers undermined the school's well-intentioned celebration, and they did so at the expense of elementary school students. Their actions were not only cynical, but did a terrible disservice to the students, their families and all of the teachers who work hard on a daily basis to build trust and a productive learning environment."

Los Angeles Unified School District spokeswoman Gayle Pollard-Terry said Supt. Ramon C. Cortines learned about the incident Tuesday and had the teachers, who are white, pulled from their classrooms for the duration of an investigation. The suspension is without pay for the first three days.
"The superintendent believes there are better choices," Pollard-Terry said.

Other students were carrying pictures of President Obama and the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.
The teachers have not been identified and could not be reached for comment.District officials did not provide specific details about what the teachers did, saying the investigation was still ongoing.

Some community leaders aren't satisfied with the suspensions and are calling for the dismissal of the instructors, who teach first, second and fourth graders.
"I just can't fathom what these teachers were thinking of except to make a mockery of African American history," said Leon Jenkins, president of the Los Angeles branch of the National Assn. for the Advancement of Colored People.

Kristen Stewart & Dakota Fanning's 'Cherry Bomb' From 'The Runaways'

Kristen Stewart was a lot more nervous about performing the songs in her new movie The Runaways than locking lips with her costar Dakota Fanning. The girls learned to perform the band's signature songs, with some performances ending up on the film's soundtrack.

The stars's rendition of the girl group's hit song 'Cherry Bomb' has now been released via the movie's website and you can hear it here. Also check out the new movie stills and promotional pictures from the Facebook website.

While he commands a massive salary for his films, Robert Pattinson says he doesn’t spend his paychecks on frivolous things.

The “Twilight” stud told press, “I’m not one for comforts and stuff, I think I can kind of do without most things.”

Of course he does have one vice- “I bought a really nice guitar recently, which is the only thing I’ve ever really spent a lot of money on. But that’s the only thing.”

“I had my apartment in London before when I was unemployed — this tiny little place and I liked it more. You had to walk through a restaurant kitchen and up this staircase filled with trash and there’s no heating. I like that. But now it’s quite difficult. I can’t live in places like that anymore. The people outside, that’s the only issue.”

TV Ratings Wednesday

FOX easily won the night as American Idol dominated with its 8.5/23 with adults 18-49 between 8-10p outpacing the combined competition.

CBS’s Wednesday comedy block suffered with The New Adventures of Old Christine down 26% from its last new episode and Gary Unmarried was down 17%. Criminal Minds fared much better, down only 3% from its last original outing. CSI:NY was down 9% as Law & Order: SVU gave it much more of a run for the money than The Jay Leno Show ever did, and NBC rose from the cellar to take third place for the night.

ABC had a bad night with The Middle down 28% from its last original outing, and Modern Family down 15%. Cougar Town was down 11%. With a 1.3 adults 18-49 rating, the Oprah Winfrey Oscar Special was 19% lower than Ugly Betty’s last original episode in the time slot.


After the Sabres-Caps game, I watched Modern Family and Psych. What did you watch, ONTD?

Preview of next week's tabloid covers

Johnny Depp's longtime girlfriend tells him to quit Angelina Jolie film

Laura Dern found out the hard way -- and so did Jennifer Aniston.

But Johnny Depp's longtime gal pal has no intention of joining the trail of brokenhearted Hollywood ladies left crying to Oprah Winfrey after Angelina Jolie stole their men.

So when Vanessa Paradis found out her "Pirates of the Caribbean" stud and Jolie were to shoot a passionate love scene in their new movie "The Tourist," she ordered Depp to find another gig, a source told The Post.

But by all appearances, Depp has not been able to cut himself out of the shoot. Filming started last month and Depp and Jolie were spied sharing a laugh on set at the Palazzo Pisani Moretta in Venice on Tuesday.

In the flick, Jolie plays an Interpol agent who seduces a tourist, played by Depp, in order to flush out a criminal she had a fling with in the past.

Paradis "found out that there was a real long and intense love scene between [Depp] and Jolie," a source close to the project said.

"He's currently trying to [get out of the movie], but I don't know if he's succeeded. But he's trying and they're talking about replacing him with [Jolie's partner] Brad Pitt or Leonardo DiCaprio."

Paradis, Depp's partner of 12 years with whom she has two kids, doesn't have to look deep into Jolie's past to find reasons to worry.

The puffy-lipped siren and Pitt hooked up after they steamed up the screen in "Mr. & Mrs. Smith."

The 2005 picture was largely credited with busting up Pitt's Tinseltown union with "Friends" actress Aniston.

Years earlier, Jolie got her hooks into Billy Bob Thornton, while the "Sling Blade" actor was reportedly engaged to actress Dern.

Reps for Depp, Jolie, Sony Pictures and producer Graham King could not be reached for comment yesterday.

Selena Gomez replaces Kidman in new film

Teen sensation Selena Gomez has stepped in for actress Nicole Kidman in upcoming movie Monte Carlo after producers decided to give the film a more youthful spin.

The 17-year-old Disney actress, known for her role on Wizards of Waverly Place, has been named the new star of the comedy, based on the book Headhunters by Jules Bass.

Kidman, 42, was set to star in the film in 2005, which originally followed the novel's plot more closely and sent four New Jersey women to Monaco, where they posed as heiresses.

According to trade paper Daily Variety, producers have updated the script to instead focus on a group of college and high school girls traveling from Paris, France.

Gossip Girl star Leighton Meester is also reportedly in talks to join the cast.

Production is set to begin in May.

Helen Mirren reveals she sometimes "loses it" and destroyed a public telephone in a fit of rage

Helen Mirren once destroyed a public telephone in a fit of rage.

The award-winning actress has revealed she is not always as "docile" as she may appear, and can easily "see red", lose her temper and destroy her surroundings if she is really riled.

She said: "I'm actually quite docile, but sometimes I just lose it. I literally see red and it's as if my head explodes. I often start crying when that's the case. I generally cry a lot. And of course I've thrown stuff around in rage. I remember wrecking a public pay phone once by tearing it off the wall with all my might."
The 64-year-old star - who has been married to US movie director Taylor Hackford since 1997 - claims her personality was moulded over the years by her various lovers.

She explained: "I'm very unmusical. But I had a lover who loved music. He taught me everything and he completely shaped my taste in music. Another lover was interested in boxing, since then I've been fascinated by it. I absorb everything, I love to learn. It's important to be open-minded. There's nothing worse than narrow-mindedness. I think nowadays young people isolate themselves too much."

With a varied and long-lasting film career, Helen believes Hollywood has made her "greedy" caused her to lose the "idealistic" views she had when she was starting out.

She explained to German TV channel 'Tele 5': "I'm still a group actress. Even when I play the main character my work only counts as part of an ensemble, and I love my co-stars. It's been like that since I've been young. However, I've lost a big amount of idealism. I'm a lot greedier and more corrupt than I used to be.

"I would prefer being different, but I've become anxious with the years. The harsh reality of life caught up with me and I want financial security. At some point idealism just falls by the wayside, which is rather sad."

Sam Merlotte Dislikes Britney's 'Toxic'

Britney Spears was nowhere to be found at Paris Hilton’s TYKU-sponsored Studio 54-themed birthday bash at her private residence on the weekend, however her boyfriend/agent Jason Trawick was pretty comfortable at the party without her – maybe a little too comfortable.

Jason arrived with a male friend, but was definitely enjoying himself until DJ Mr. Best, threw on Britney Spears' song ‘Toxic,’” an insider told Pop Tarts. “When the song came on the first thing out of Jason’s mouth was ‘OMG I hate this song!’ His friends all laughed and continued to talk, but he interrupted them by saying, ‘I’m sorry, I can’t hear what you’re saying over her voice.’ He wasn’t laughing.”


And after slamming his girl’s music, Trawick continued to party – even when other peeps asked if he was going to leave soon he replied “Nope, I’m all good” before eventually being one of the last out the door around 3 a.m.

Spears and Trawick have been dating since early last year, and despite all the rumors that the pop princess was desperate for the William Morris agent to put a ring on it, an inside source said that it was really Spears’ dad Jamie that was pushing the relationship due to Jason’s “good influence” on his troubled daughter.

Madonna has signed up Australian actress, Abbie Cornish to play a leading role in her new film ‘W.E.

Madonna has signed Abbie Cornish for her new movie.

The Australian actress has agreed to appear in the 51-year-old singer’s forthcoming film ‘W.E’ – which tells the story of the relationship between Britain’s King Edward VIII and Wallis Simpson, the Duchess of Windsor. - as Wally Winthrop, a woman who is obsessed with the Duchess of Windsor’s life.

Madonna – who split from British film director husband Guy Ritchie in October 2008 - was originally planning to play the part of Wallis, but has since reconsidered and is now said to be in talks with ‘Up In The Air’ actress Vera Farmiga.
The ‘4 Minutes’ star – who will direct the movie – revealed next month that she wanted British star David Tennant to play the monarch, but is said to have changed her mind.

Madonna’s only other directing credit is 2008’s ‘Filth and Wisdom’, which starred Richard E. Grant and Eugene Hutz, although she has served as a writer on documentary ‘I Am Because We Are’. ‘W.E’ is still in pre-production and has a preliminary release date of 2011.

'Survivorman' Fan Dies in Canadian Wilderness

Richard Code with his father

Yesterday, Canadian police recovered the body of Richard Code, a 41-year-old Ontario man who likely succumbed to hypothermia in the boreal forest wilderness of that province. He was found with little gear, and family members say most of this survival enthusiast's skills were gleaned from books and shows like Survivorman.

Code was found in a marshy, snowed-in area with a multi-tool, axe, matches, lighter, an emergency blanket, fishing gear, compass, survival book, maps, and money, but no formal tents or shelter. He left a note with his landlord detailing his return time and GPS coordinates. On Monday, when he missed his return time, his landlady contacted the police.

He had attempted many 'survival trips' in the past, but none successfully in the winter, and family members often worried about his lack of training and warned him of the dangers. Survivorman host Les Stroud, whose show often stresses the discomfort and dangers of real wilderness survival, sought to reinforce that idea.

“You need that time in the bush and there is no replacement,” Stroud said, speaking to the Star before Code’s body was located. “I wouldn’t attempt to solo until I’d done at least half a dozen or 10 courses . . . in the bush with people that knew what they were doing.”

Nelson Mandela Thought Jeremy and James from "Top Grear" Were Astronauts

'How was the moon, Clarkson?' Nelson Mandela confuses Top Gear presenter with astronaut
Image and video hosting by TinyPic Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Jeremy Clarkson may be famed for his love of cars and the high speed at which he drives them, but even he would struggle to make it all the way to the moon.

However, when the Top Gear presenter met Nelson Mandela recently, the world’s most famous statesman confused Clarkson with an astronaut.

Clarkson, though, decided not to correct Mandela and instead told him the moon was 'rocky and dusty'.

Clarkson also revealed in the Times newspaper that he had asked 91-year-old Mandela if he had ever been to a lap-dancing club.

Clarkson was appearing at an event in aid of Mandela’s 46664 charity. He met the former South African president with co-presenter James May, and Mandela assumed the pair to be American astronauts he was expecting to meet later.

'This was tricky,' Clarkson wrote. 'So I did what I thought was best and said it was very rocky and dusty and there was not much gravity.'

if you want to read Jeremy's thoughts on this whole thing including Jeremy lieing to Nelson abot meeting the Queen( the actual queen of England)
lol @ Jeremy being confused for Americans... that must have hurt him.

The Advocate + GLAAD Responds to Shiloh/John's Tabloid Cover

“Why Is Angelina Turning Shiloh Into a Boy?” the cover of this week’s Life & Style magazine asks readers. Claiming Angelina Jolie refuses to let her 3-year-old daughter wear dresses and insists on calling her “John,” the accompanying article then cites “expert” opinions on whether the behavior is harmful to the child... including a rep for antigay group Focus on the Family.

"Little girls have never been women before. They need help, they need guidance of what that looks like,” Focus on the Family’s Glenn Stanton says in the magazine. “It’s important to teach our children that gender distinction is very healthy.”

Celebrity stylist Gili Rashal-Niv offers, "I get that times are tough but does Angie really need to have Shiloh sharing clothes with her brothers? Hopefully we won’t be seeing Maddox in one of Shiloh’s dresses any time soon.

A spokesperson for Life & Style magazine issued the following statement to The Advocate:

Life & Style's cover story ‘Why Is Angelina Turning Shiloh Into a Boy?’ presents experts speaking from all viewpoints in the debate over Shiloh's new look, which immediately ignited controversy all across the media. The feature provides our readers with a comprehensive look inside one of the biggest entertainment news stories right now.”

But the National Center for Transgender Equality says the article is just pushing outdated stereotypes.

“The length of Shiloh's hair or the clothes she wears are really matters for her and her parents to decide; this is a family that is known for their fashion,” Justin Tanis, outreach manager for NCTE tells The Advocate. “What's important here is that every child, including Shiloh, has the opportunity to express herself and explore her world in a way that is safe and nurturing for her. Our society needs healthy, well-rounded children whose interests and tastes are as diverse as the children themselves and are not limited by outdated stereotypes of gender. Shiloh — and all other children — deserve the right to be themselves in ways that feel right to them as they learn and grow.

Representatives from GLAAD have reached out to Life & Style to "educate the editors about how to fairly and accurately report on gender identity issues." Senior Director of Programs issued the following statement to The Advocate.


"Life & Style is way off the mark with this outrageous coverage. Perpetuating gender stereotypes and targeting children for ridicule about the way they dress is unacceptable, regardless of their parent’s celebrity status. Media has a responsibility to differentiate between credible authorities and politically motivated (and usually self-proclaimed) 'experts' like Focus on the Family's Glenn Stanton, who is not an expert on developmental issues or gender identity."


It's just the latest sign that Shiloh's more comfortable doing traditionally boyish things. After all, Brad once said that his daughter responded only to boys' names. "We've got to call her John," he told Oprah Winfrey, noting that when he started to ask, "Shi, do you want..." she would interrupt with "John. I'm John." Then, Brad continued, "I'll say, 'John, would you like some orange juice?' And she goes, 'No!'"

Bollywood actresses go size zero

Bipasha Basu has a new fitness DVD
Bollywood actresses are slimming down, as an increasing vogue for showing bare flesh on screen and Western ideas about body size and beauty take hold in India's big cities.
Whereas former leading ladies like Mumtaz and Zeenat Aman once found their curvaceous figures no barrier to success, their modern-day counterparts are as famous for their diet and fitness regimes as their acting and dancing skills.
"There's been a lot of changes in the last decade, whether it's in modelling or in Bollywood," said Venu Hirani, a nutritionist and fitness consultant in Mumbai.
"Today, the basic requirement for someone wanting to go into either is that they need to be a (US) size zero," she said.
Actress Kareena Kapoor has been the focus of much media attention since appearing in a bikini in the 2008 film Tashan (Style) - a significant development in an industry known for its chaste treatment of romantic love.
The 29-year-old star slimmed down dramatically for the role and reportedly collapsed on set.
She has since had to deny suggestions that her current weight is unhealthy, instead attributing her smaller size to eating correctly, regular exercise and yoga.

"My size zero is such a hot topic of discussion... that when Saif (Ali Khan, her actor boyfriend) and I eat out at a restaurant, people don't stare so much at us as... what is on my plate," she told the Bombay Times newspaper. "Some even ask the maitre d': 'What is she ordering for dinner?' I love the curiosity element," she said.

Other Bollywood actresses, like Bipashu Basu and Shilpa Shetty, have made fitness or yoga videos.Some, such as Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone, often talk about the importance of sports in their health regime.

But while Kapoor and others can turn to their own personal dietician and fitness trainers for expert guidance, some health professionals fear the phenomenon could contribute to dangerous, unregulated weight loss among fans. Hirani said she has seen an influx of young women coming to her for advice on how to lose weight - even though they may not need it."Maybe about a decade ago you would have had people come to me for post-pregnancy weight loss, or people with health conditions," she said."Now I have more and more of the younger generation who don't really need to lose weight but tell me they need to knock off five kilogrammes (11 pounds)."

Hirani and Roshni Pithawala, another Mumbai-based consultant dietician and counsellor, said Bollywood and the growth of internet access, cable television and advertising are changing the way Indians look at their bodies.
Few formal studies on the prevalence of eating disorders in India exist but one report suggested that conditions like anorexia and bulimia were increasing, although they are yet to reach levels found in Western countries.
"Socio-economic cultural changes and Westernisation could result in the culture-change syndrome of eating disorders in India today," accoridn to a report about the study, which was published in the journal Indian Pediatrics in May 2007.
The situation was following a similar pattern to the West, with higher socio-economic groups affected, it added.

Pithawala said peer pressure among teenage girls to look good, family and school pressures played a part, as did a lack of education in Indian schools about nutrition and healthy eating.When they look at their heroes and heroines, "they create an ideal image, which might not be the reality for them. That person may have spent millions of rupees to get that figure. It's an unrealistic goal," she said.

Delta Burke to guest star on Modern Family?

Next season, ABC’s Modern Family plans to introduce the Tuckers, the down-home, fun-lovin’ country parents of Eric Stonestreet’s gay papa, Cameron. While Kathy Bates was once thought of for the role, Eric tells me, “her casting on The Office kind of made it not as exciting for us.” Now he’s campaigning for one of his personal faves: Designing Women veteran Delta Burke. “Wouldn’t she be great?,” asks Eric. “She possesses that sort of kind, Southern quality I think Cameron’s mom would have. And Delta seems like a real sweet lady.” The show’s creator, Steve Levitan, agrees, telling me, “We like that idea. We think that could be good.”

BBC presenter who secretly taped his sex with five women gets 8 months in the slammer

A former BBC TV/radio producer/presenter who used a hidden camera to record himself having sex with five women has been sent to jail for eight months.Benjamin Wilkins, 37, secreted a camera - which he linked to his computer - in the smoke alarm over his bed in his London apartment, and saved the recordings on DVDs, each labeled with the name of the unaware lover he taped.

The sex tapes were made over a three-year period beginning 2005, after which he dismantled his filming setup and tucked away the DVDS.
But his girlfriend, the mother of his toddler son, found the cache of dirty DVDs when she moved in. The recordings had been made over a three-year period beginning 2005.

Wilkins' secretly filmed lovers included TV and radio presenters. He resigned from BBC London after his arrest.
One of the women needed counseling after learning about the recordings, saying she felt "violated, sick, dirty and stupid."
Wilkins pleaded guilty to 11 charges of voyeurism at Camberwell Magistrates' Court this year.

Inner Crown Court Judge Roger Chapple said the effect Wilkins' actions had on his victims had to be taken into consideration in determining his sentence.
"What you did represents a cruel, selfish betrayal of the trust they put in you," the judge added.
In addition to the jail sentence, Wilkins was ordered to register as a sex offender for 10 years.

Micha out in Milan March 4th

Continuing to enjoy her time overseas, Mischa Barton was spotted out and about in Milan on Thursday (March 4).

Once again showing off her recently lightened locks, the former “OC” starlet was joined by a few companions as she ran all over the Italian city.

The sighting comes after Mischa spent the previous night as a guest on the Italian TV show “Chiambretti Nights,” during which she was treated to a lap dance from five sexy Chippendale-style dancers.

The press duties coincided with last night’s airing of Miss Barton’s debut appearance as a pregnant prostitute on NBC’s “Law & Order: SVU”.

Cheryl Tweedy at Heathrow


Ready to make her first public appearance since splitting from husband Ashley Cole, a sad-looking Cheryl Cole was spotted departing Heathrow Airport on Thursday (March 4).

Clad in a grey t-shirt, tight black pants and sunglasses, the “X-Factor” hottie was quickly escorted through the crowded terminal - refusing to answer any questions before jetting off to Copenhagen for the Danish version of “X-Factor” tomorrow night.

Meanwhile, insiders tell that Miss Cole is beginning to take blame for the end of her marriage to Mr Cole.

A source told the Daily Mail, “Cheryl has agreed to see a counselor with Ashley to hear his issues. She think he deserves to be heard and understands how he could think that she let him down as a wife.”

The insider adds, “In essence, she is starting to accept his claim that it is not solely his fault their marriage collapsed.”

Jessica Simpson Brought to Tears by Anorexic Model Isabelle Caro

Jessica Simpson appeared on 'Oprah' on Wednesday, where she discussed her anger with John Mayer for calling her his "sexual napalm," revealed that her infamous "mom jeans" were actually a size 4, and promoted her new VH1 show "The Price of Beauty."

In one clip that makes the show look pretty interesting, Simpson and her best friends Ken Paves and CaCee Cobb travel to Paris to meet former model Isabelle Caro, who suffers from a severe case of anorexia. Caro made headlines when, at 62 pounds, she posed nude for an anti-anorexia billboard.

A Law & Order SVU Homophobic FAIL?

Seriously, everything Kathy Griffin touches apparently becomes controversial. Although this one has less to do with her, and a lot to do with Law & Order SVU producers, who chose to cut out a kissing scene from last night's episode between Griffin and series-lead Mariska Hargitay.

The kissing scene made its way into promos, no doubt to entice a whole lot of people to watch last night's show. But it was glaringly missing from the hour-long episode. And to make matters worse, producers kept in a line of dialogue that has many people seeing homophobia the morning after.

Is this a Law & Order SVU homophobia FAIL? Or are queer activists being too sensitive?

Caprica Is Quickly Becoming The Best SF Show On Television


Friday night's episode of Caprica, There Is Another Sky, moved the already-intriguing show to the status of must-watch. It was simply one of the best SF representations of futuristic videogames and internet culture that I've ever seen.


Caprica was occasionally shaky in its first few weeks, but with this episode the series found its sea legs. We're learning more about the V-World that mega-entrepreneur Daniel Graystone created with his holoband technology.

Adam Lambert Is A “Sleepwalker” On ‘Jay Leno’

Adam Lambert opted to perform the Ryan Tedder-produced track “Sleepwalker”—possibly his next single?—on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno Tuesday night, rather than his current hit “Whataya Want From Me” (which this week is #28 on the Billboard Hot 100). Gone was the au naturale look that Glambert sported at his recent Belvedere middle school appearance (as well as in the “Whataya” video)—the singer was decked out in full eyeliner, mascara and glitter, with the now-trademark Lambert ‘do standing at full attention.

Meanwhile, Leno’s other guests last night were former Alaska governor Sarah Palin and Olympian Shaun White. And while White came out to meet Lambert and the band on stage after the “Sleepwalker” performance, Palin did not.

She’s probably a big fan, though, right?

Is 'Modern Family' about to get more Precious?

In less than one season 'Modern Family' has attracted a bevy of comedy legends and upstarts -- Fred Willard, Elizabeth Banks, Shelley Long, Kristen Schaal, Judy Greer -- but for season two it sounds like they're going after dramatic actors with a flair for comedy. In a new interview with's PopWrap Jesse Tyler Ferguson reveals that he's been actively pursuing a newly minted Oscar nominee for a big role on the show's second season!

"The one person I actually have gone after -- because she'd be so brilliant -- is Gabourey Sidibe. I think she would be fantastic as a nanny we hire. She's just so bubbly and sweet and a fan of the show. I think this would be a seamless fit for her," he told the site.

Jesse also alleviated fan fears that the show had squandered Fred's cameo earlier this season. "Fred will be back -- I want people to know that because the Internet was filled with all these angry rants about us wasting Fred the first time [he was only briefly in one episode]. It was like, "calm down people, we're just introducing him to bring him back!"

I can't get enough of Gabourey and think she needs to do a comedy next!

Michael Jackson honored by Native American Film Festival, foolishly dissed by Gene Simmons

Aging glam-rocker Gene Simmons made international headlines last month when he claimed to know that Michael Jackson had molested children. In an interview with Classic Rock, Simmons alleged that Jackson was on tape ordering alcohol for children and that during the star's 2005 trial a travel agent had testified to importing Brazilian boys for Jackson's amusement. He also claimed that a musician friend had quit a Jackson tour after seeing 'boys coming out of the hotel rooms.'

What followed was a classic example of copy and paste journalism. Within hours the story had been duplicated by hundreds of blogs, forums and news websites from Australia to India to the USA. None of them had fact-checked the story before they re-hosted it. Jackson was never on tape ordering alcohol for children. There was never any testimony during his trial about young Brazilian boys. Both of these claims were easily disproven by trial transcripts.

HBO's Rome May Finally Be Headed to the Big Screen

Fans of HBO’s critically-beloved (but short-lived) series Rome may not have seen the last of Vorenus and Pullo. Multiple sources have confirmed to EW that a big-screen sequel to the sword-and-sandals series is well underway. Rome creator/executive Bruno Heller — who went on to create CBS’s hit The Mentalist — has finished a script for Morning Light Productions, which financed the development and will produce the film. Series stars Kevin McKidd (Lucius Vorenus) and Ray Stevenson (Titus Pullo) will likely sign onto the movie, which picks up in Germany four years after the series ended. The next step for Morning Light is to find a director and a studio, since HBO Films won’t be involved.

Rome the series aired from 2005-07 and took place during Ancient Rome, beginning with Caesar’s invasion of Gaul and continuing with the rise of the first Emperor Augustus. The series centered on soldiers Pullo and Vorenus, who appeared to die at the end of the series.

On what’s next for her: “I’m ambitious. I want to do great work and work with great directors and do great movies and produce great films.
