keira knightley's alleged stalker walks free from court

Marek Daniluk, 41, was arrested earlier this year outside the comedy Theatre in London's West End, where the actress was performing Moliere's Le Misanthrope.

Police were called by a member of the public who became suspicious after allegedly seeing him hanging around outside the theatre. Daniluk, who is more than 6ft tall, was charged with harassment against Knightley, 25, following allegations that he had been stalking her. It is believed Daniluk had bombarded the actress with gift and messages and had been seen regularly outside the theatre where she was performing.

In a statement Knightley made to the police at the time she said she had become “worried” and “distressed” at his behaviour.

He had been due before City of Westminster Magistrate’s court yesterday (Fri) but the charges against him were dropped when Knightley made it clear she would not be in a position to give evidence against him. The actress is currently in Germany where she is filming A Dangerous Method, a film about the intense relationship between Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung.

A spokesman for the star confirmed she would not be able to attend the court hearing.

A spokesman for the Crown Prosecution Service said: "It [the case] was discontinued because the only evidence was from the complainant and the complainant was unable to attend on any of the dates which were given." Polish born Daniluk, who was wearing a blue and yellow rugby shirt with jeans, attended the hearing but was told he no further action would be taken against him and he was free to go.

Doing her best to keep busy as she complies with her probation terms, Lindsay Lohan joined up with little sister Ali for a week-ending retail romp in Beverly Hills on Friday (June 4).

Sporting high ankle leather sandals that covered up her court-ordered alcohol-monitoring SCRAM ankle bracelet, the "Georgia Rule" babe and her darling sis hit up the popular Switch Boutique.

The Lohan gals busily browsed the racks in search of the perfect duds, with Ali looking quite perturbed by the paaprazzi in-store presence.

Meanwhile, LiLo was busy thinking about the past, as she took to her Twitter account to vent her displeasure over the E-Trade commercial from earlier this year in which she filed a $100 million lawsuit against.

The troubles actress tweeted, "Was just thinking about how mean&unecessary that etrade commercial was of my during super bowl :("

Nonetheless, the latest reports tell that Miss Lohan has been keeping up with all of her court requirements - which should bode well when she hits the courtroom next month for a probation violation hearing.

Katherine Heigl is 1 of the Only 5 Actresses Who Can Get Films Green-lit in Hollywood, But...

Heigl: The Definitive Vulture Analysis of the Divisive Rom-Com Queen

Knocked Up (2007): $300,000
27 Dresses (2008): $6 million
Current quote: $13 million

PLACE ON THE CASTING FOOD CHAIN: Sources tell Vulture that there are only five women today who can get a project green-lit just by signing on: Julia Roberts, Sandra Bullock, Angelina Jolie, Reese Witherspoon (for dramas), and Heigl. And out of those five, Heigl is the only one who will work in a young romantic comedy. The next tier of hot female stars — Anne Hathaway, Carey Mulligan, Keira Knightley — may be offered a lead role, but they won't get a movie a go just by signing their name.

"She still green-lights studio movies. And personality aside, she is a movie star. The problem is that it's getting harder and harder. Look at this project Blended at Warner Bros. that she's attached to. It's a two-hander [needing a male and female lead to pull it off]. And the producers are telling us, 'We can't go back to any male lead she's ever worked with.' And that's because she's a goddamn nightmare. It's a shame, because she's talented. She has a shot at being Julia Roberts, but she's headed towards becoming Jennifer Aniston — someone who works regularly, but who could have been a superstar."

"So far, [she and her manager mom] have sent this message: She's expensive, and she's unpleasant to work with. It looks like they're going for a 'quick burn': Make as much as you can, while you can. I've always felt the way to longevity was quality, not a bunch of romantic comedies in a row just because they pay big. I already feel like the audience has tired of her [in that genre]. She needs to make it an event to go see a Katie Heigl movie. I don't know if she has the acting chops to do other things, but she needs to do other things, and to work with great directors."

A PUBLICIST'S VIEW: “She’s almost her own worst enemy. You have to be so careful which outlets you’re going to put her with. Always do the safe stuff: Leno. Today. You need someone on your side. Because Katie’s just a risk.”

THE RUNDOWN: Is Heigl worth the headache? The positive spin is that, despite all the controversy she’s generated and apparent ill will she’s inspired, she has remained a lock-tight moneymaker, at least for a certain audience. But the rom-com audience is notoriously fickle, or at least brand-resistant, lured more reliably by high-concept pitches and great trailers than over-the-title stars. (The double-dip of Kate Hudson and Anne Hathaway could not breathe life into Bride Wars, for example.)

Shocker: Real Housewife is broke and living beyond her means

She has a gaudy new mansion, pricey breast implants and spends thousands of dollars on shopping sprees for her spoiled brats -- but a New Jersey reality star and her goombah hubby are real-life deadbeats who owe $11 million, court records show.

Free-spending "Real Housewives of New Jersey" diva Teresa Giudice and her husband, Joe, make just $79,000 a year and are up to their tanned necks in liens, foreclosures and unpaid bills, according to bankruptcy papers filed in Newark federal court.

The Giudices say they owe creditors $10,853,648.04.

Teresa, known for her lust for designer clothes and expensive bling on the Bravo show, owes nearly $20,000 on credit cards for Bloomingdale's, Nordstrom and Neiman Marcus. In total, the Giudices show $104,000 in debt on at least eight credit cards.

The bank has moved to foreclose on the Giudices' $1.8 million, 10,500-square-foot, eight-bedroom, 5½-bath marble-and-onyx manse in Towaco, NJ, the couple moved into during the first season.

Teresa and Joe defaulted on their $1,280-a-month payment for the family's ubiquitous black Cadillac Escalade. They also didn't have insurance on the massive SUV, according to GMAC.

Teresa -- who this season told Joe to get a vasectomy -- owes $12,000 to a Garden State fertility clinic.

* Banks have taken the couple's $279,000 four-bedroom Jersey Shore house. The Giudices had three mortgages on the house and owed $325,000. The couple also handed over a $200,000 home in Lincoln Park, NJ, that had four mortgages -- and an outstanding debt of $600,000.

* Teresa and Joe owed another $1 million for property in Clifton, NJ, that has been given back to lenders.

Gary Coleman's Funeral Canceled Due to Family Feud

Gary Coleman will not be buried this weekend as originally planned, as his ex-wife Shannon Price is fighting with his estranged parents about the location of his burial
, TMZ reports. Coleman died Friday at age 42 in a Utah hospital following a fall that resulted in a brain hemorrhage, and the TV star's parents are seeking custody of his body and want it returned to the star's boyhood home in Illinois, his former manager, Victor Perillo, told the Associate Press on Thursday.

Perillo said Coleman's parents, Sue and Willie Coleman, are the legal custodians of his body because Coleman and Price divorced in 2008. But a rep for Gary's ex-wife claims Price is the executor of the actor's will and has the power to make all decisions regarding the funeral and his estate.
"The Colemans don't want to fight with anyone," their lawyer said in a statement. "They just want to bring their son home."

According to TMZ, a mortuary is holding Coleman's remains and his funeral has been canceled for now.

New Expendables trailer features all the main characters, probably most of the dialogue

The new trailer for The Expendables makes it seem as epic as a newly unearthed Star Wars film, and so manly that I’m pretty sure one of my ovaries just shriveled up. I could not love it more. It starts with Sylvester Stallone’s voice, “We are the shadows, and the smoke in your eyes. We are the ghosts, that hide in the night.” Then it’s got a crow dancing on a metallic skull as the voices of Bruce Willis (“Lights out!” “You got a problem with it?”) and Arnold Schwarzenegger (“Come on!” “Run you bastard!”) are heard (I thought "Run you bastard!" sounded more like Statham but nm). Then, it runs through the last names of the action legends who are coming together for the first and only time in this movie as we hear their voices delivering more lines that you would have bet your life would have been in this script:

Arnold Schwarzenegger: “He loves playing in the jungle.”
Bruce Willis: “Let’s get down to business.”
Jason Statham: “If we get out of here, it’s a miracle.”
Jet Li: “Time’s up.”
Mickey Rourke: “Come on, let’s see what you got.”
Dolph Lundgren: “Be careful.” (Gee, thanks Mom!)
Steve Austin: “I’m gonna kill him.”
Randy Couture: “It makes you stronger, Petey."
Terry Crews: “Anything that gets in my way, kaboom.”

I think I might hypersleep until August 13, the wait is killing me.

Sean Penn's Wife "Is A Ghost To Me Now"

“She is a ghost to me now,” Sean Penn tells Vanity Fair of ex-wife Robin Wright. “We spent all those years together. … Now she’s just gone.”

The Oscar-winning actor has spent the last five months in Haiti and he talks to the magazine about his work there, describing how important it has been to him, especially as his family life has changed. “I was for 20 years in a relationship with Robin and 18 years with children. I didn’t have time to commit to anything—for real—in places like Iraq, except to denounce the war. But now I’m single. I can lend a hand.”

What can you tell us about the new Blondie album Fear of Girls?
We're really excited about it. We hadn't recorded in such a long time (since 2003's The Curse of Blondie) that everyone had really good ideas, there were a lot of great contributions and a wide variety of material. I think it's the typical Blondie mishmash. I'm not sure when it's coming out, the (record) labels are in a terrible state now of course. But I want it out the sooner the better.

Rapture is now seen as a pivotal song in music - helping introduce rap to the mainstream in 1981.
It's a song I've always loved, I'm very proud of it. It was the first, I say rap song but it's not really a rap song, but we paid homage to the rappers and the genre. It was the first rap song to go to No.1 in the US.

Have you heard Alicia Keys' cover of your song Rapture?
Of course. I'm very flattered, Alicia Keys is one of the most talented people around, her boyfriend Swizz (Beatz) is a great producer. Those two working on Rapture - I was very honoured they'd do it.

useless reality star tries to remain relevant, calls out rpattz skin tone in the process

The fading star of ‘Jersey Shore’ thinks R-Patz is cute, but would be much cuter with a little more sun!

Nicole ‘Snooki’ Polizzi, she of the cringe inducing bump-it and Donatella Versace skin tone, has a beauty tip for Robert Pattinson – get a tan! Snooki, who will serve as a special correspondent for the MTV Movie Awards, told MTV News, “I’m going to say, ‘You need to go tanning, but you’re really hot. Because you’re a vampire. You’re pale’.” We wonder what Robert is going to have to say about that!

While we all enjoy Snooki’s debaucherous behavior and love of hot tubs, we really wonder why our friend is offering beauty advice to one of the world’s most attractive and eligible bachelors. Is this not the same girl who actually drove a man to vomiting on her show?

Ed Hardy aficionado Snooki also announced that tomorrow evening’s red carpet, which will bring out stars including Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner, and Sandra Bullock, will also feature a ten-minute preview of the upcoming season of Jersey Shore.

Psychologists waste time; determine Darth Vader was mentally ill

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

French psychologists recently spent some time analyzing Darth Vader (we're not sure why) and determined that the Sith Lord was mentally ill, according to LiveScience. Specifically, they say he probably has a borderline personality, described by Wikipedia as "a prolonged disturbance of personality function in a person (generally over the age of eighteen years, although it is also found in adolescents), characterized by depth and variability of moods."

The psychologists are going to publish their findings in the journal Psychiatry Research, but LiveScience has a preview:

Skywalker hit six out of the nine borderline personality disorder criteria as defined by the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, fourth edition (DSM-IV). He only needed to meet five criteria to qualify as suffering from the disorder.

For instance, the future Darth Vader showed both impulsivity and anger management issues as an overexcited, lovelorn Jedi. He went back and forth between idealizing and devaluing Jedi mentors, such as a humorless young Obi-Wan Kenobi.

Abandonment issues also surfaced. Skywalker had a permanent fear of losing his wife, Padme Amidala, and he went so far as to betray his Jedi mentors and companions to try to prevent her death.

Two displays of dissociative episodes took place when Skywalker tried to distance himself from stressful events. The first episode took place after he slaughtered a local tribe of Tuskens responsible for his mother's death. A second episode occurred following his murderous rampage among young Jedi trainees, as he voiced paranoid thoughts about Obi-Wan Kenobi and his wife.

Lastly, any "Star Wars" fan would recognize Skywalker's identity issues and uncertainty about who he was. His fateful turn to the dark side and change of name to Darth Vader could represent the ultimate sign of such identity disturbance, the researchers said.

For some reason the study neglected to mention the other signs of Vader's poor mental health, such as torturing people, destroying entire planets, choking his co-workers to death and cutting off his son's hand. Among other things.

Um, wow at this article. I love the first trilogy, though. In fact, my cats are named after characters in the films.

Kim Kardashian to play the next Lara Croft?

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

KIM Kardashian is in talks to replace Angelina Jolie in the Tomb Raider movie franchise.

According to Hollywood insiders, the curvy reality TV star is in the middle of negotiations to play video game beauty Lara Croft in a reboot of the film series.

“This will be something very different to Angelina’s Lara,” a source said.

“Kim is wanted to play a far more comic-strip version of Lara which would be shot in 3-D and aimed at a teen audience.”

Kim, 29, has previously spoken of her desire to break into acting.

“I would love to do more acting,” she said in December last year.

“I have so much going on but acting is definitely exciting to me. I’m hoping to do more TV and I would really love to make movies.”

In March, it was reported that Kim — who has starred in an episode of CSI: NY — has been having acting lessons.

“Kim has been attending acting classes for some time,” a source revealed.

“She gets scripts sent to her all the time, but unlike so many other famous people she doesn’t just want to make a film without first learning the craft.”

Ed O'Neill Unfazed by Modern Family Gay Kiss Drama

Ed O'Neill is no stranger to comedy controversy. Twenty years ago, critics assailed his show 'Married... With Children' for risqué content that supposedly went too far. Now, his hit show 'Modern Family' is the target of criticism that it doesn't go far enough.

The ABC sitcom's critics have noted that its gay couple, Mitchell (Jesse Tyler Ferguson) and Cameron (Eric Stonestreet), has not been shown kissing (or engaging in much public display of affection, for that matter), even though the program hasn't been shy about showing liplocks between Mitchell's sister, Claire (Julie Bowen), and her husband, Phil (Ty Burrell). ABC has said the reticence is Mitchell's, not the network's, and that his squeamishness over PDA will be addressed in a future episode. That hasn't mollified the more than 12,000 Facebook petitioners (so far) who are demanding a Mitchell-Cameron kiss.

 O'Neill, who plays Mitchell and Claire's father, Jay, addressed the controversy in an interview with PopEater. Calling from his Los Angeles home, he said he finds the complaint "half amusing, half annoying." He noted that we haven't seen Jay and his sexy young wife, Gloria (Sofia Vergara) kiss either. And, after 20 years of appearances in controversial comedies, O'Neill said that he sees such protests as just another form of show business, not to be taken seriously.

What do you think of the protests over Cameron and Mitchell's muted displays of affection?
Oh, that's so stupid. Who cares? When I hear that, it's half amusing, half annoying. First of all, they're the most conservative family of the three. Mitchell is a lawyer, and Cameron is a stay-at-home mom with a baby

It's much, much better to allow people to use their imaginations when they want to, in that regard. Otherwise, it turns into a sort of pornography. If people want to be titillated or shocked or, "Oh, wow, they're actually kissing," I mean, who cares? The format is, they live together. We assume they have sex. I don't think we need to see it beginning or ending. Who cares? To me, it's boring. Gloria and I haven't done any making out in the first 24 shows.

Would you like to have Jay make out with Gloria?
No. I think it's boring. When people start to make out or kiss or French kiss or caress in a sexual manner, the story stops. Where do you go with that? It's like, "Okay, now, let's see... five seconds, ten seconds, 15 seconds, gee, they're still making out, my goodness, they're actually kissing." Who cares? The story stops.

Do you find any irony in the notion that, 20 years ago, 'Married... With Children' was criticized for going too far, and now 'Modern Family' is criticized for not going far enough?
I couldn't care less. [Laughs.] It's part of the business. The fact is, the critics have a job to do. They're also in show business. We understand that. They have to sell their fish some way, so they have to keep inventing things to write about. So they're going to come up with things that are titillating to read about. From an actor's standpoint, we don't even think about things like that. We have enough to do just to get the show done. That's all I ever think about. Otherwise, you're thinking about things you have no control over and they're just in the way of what you really need to concern yourself about.

Three Articles on 'The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner by Stephenie Meyer'

In Stephenie Meyer's introduction to her latest Twilight tale, The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner, she whets her fans' appetites by suggesting that in this novel she's "stepped into the shoes of … a 'real' vampire – a hunter, a monster". Any readers frustrated by the mundane suburban detail of Meyer's previous Twilight books – vampires who play baseball, drive Volvos and give each other tasteful, thoughtful gifts – might be tempted to perk up. Sadly, it's a folorn hope.

It has arrived: the benevolent gift to fans, the surprise french fry discovered in the bottom of Stephenie Meyer's vampiric junk-food bag. "The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner" hit stores Saturday, two years after readers thought they'd seen the last of Bella and the Cullen clan. This novella is a companion to "Eclipse," the third volume in Meyer's teen human-vampire love saga, which comes out in movie form later this month.

And instead of all the fanfare that had surrounded the release of "Breaking Dawn" almost two years ago, they had a couple of quiet, muggy hours in which to make new friends.Collapse )

Lady Gaga at JFK looking like [insert impossible to describe description here]

All dolled up for an outbound flight, Lady Gaga was spotted preparing to jet out of Heathrow Airport in London, England on Saturday (June 5).
The "Poker Face" singer happily stopped to sign autographs and take pictures with fans while clad in a leather studded jump suit and platform heels.

As she headed off to New York City, a paparazzo source tells that GaGa's thin frame wasn't suited for the normally skintight leather ensemble - so much so that during check-in she accidentally flashed her lady parts to the airport staffers and other passengers.

Tweeting just before takeoff, Lady GaGa tweeted to her many fans and followers, "I have dreamt a lifetime to get on this flight to NewYork. I don't care if its summer. Leather, high heels, and a bad attitude. Here I come."

Making it safely on the transatlantic flight, the 24-year-old looked cheerful as she pranced out of JFK Airport towards an awaiting car with paparazzi on-hand for a warm welcome.

Review: ‘Pulse’ refreshing the parts other medical procedurals cannot!

Synopsis: A year after her mother's death, Hannah resumes her training at one of the country's top teaching hospitals. She is soon terrified by strange visions and the threatening behavior of her ex-boyfriend and star surgeon Nick and wonders if she has come back too soon.

Thursday night saw the first of three back door pilots broadcast on BBC Three, and if this is what we can expect to see in future weeks when it comes to quality drama, the standard is extremely high.

"Pulse," which is written by Paul Cornell, is a hospital procedural with a difference.

NGL, I only watched this for Stephen Campbell Moore. Ben Miles (aka Patrick from Coupling) made a surprise appearance too. If BBC Three picks it up, SCM better be involved some way or another, otherwise I won't bother to watch. I don't want a Being Human fuck up again when two out of three actors were replaced. Well, can't wait to see the other two pilots.

Your mission is a failure! Your lifestyle too extreme!

A Kiwi icon so famous that a statue was erected in his honour is being denied New Zealand citizenship.
Richard O'Brien, the New Zealand-raised creator of The Rocky Horror Show, has been told he can't retire there.

The 68-year-old British-born writer and actor is now appealing to Immigration Minister Jonathan Coleman for help.

O'Brien, who lives in London, has been back to New Zealand regularly since the 1960s and wants to retire to Katikati, where he has a 2½-acre property. But his immigration adviser, Dion Smart, says he doesn't fit the criteria for citizenship or permanent residency.

Two of O'Brien's siblings, Robin Smith and Gillian Page, live in Tauranga, as did their parents until they died about four years ago. According to immigration requirements, to be sponsored by either of his siblings for permanent residency in New Zealand, O'Brien has to be aged 55 or under, and have secured a job offer – criteria he doesn't fit.

O'Brien says he thinks his application should be "rubber- stamped" in light of his contribution to New Zealand.

"I don't understand – they build a statue of me and celebrate me as a New Zealander, but I have to go on my knees and do all sorts of things, and I'm probably too old."

He came to New Zealand as a 10-year-old with his family from Britain in 1952.

He spent his teenage years and early 20s in Hamilton and Tauranga. He left in 1964 for London.

In 2004, he was honoured with a statue in Hamilton of his Rocky Horror character, the creepy butler Riff Raff, erected on the site of the barber shop where he worked before leaving for Britain.

His son Josh came to New Zealand on a student visa about four years ago and is applying for residency. Mr Smart says that having such close family ties to New Zealand should help his case.

O'Brien has often spoken in interviews about growing up in New Zealand and the influence it had on his life and work. Some of the songs from Rocky Horror were inspired by incidents in his youth here.

"I regret not getting citizenship before I went away to the UK. I thought I was only going on a one-year working holiday. I'm very proud of New Zealand. What it gave me was it's classlessness. It's a meritocracy. In 1964, Britain was a very class-run society, but I was indifferent to that."

Waikato film-maker Fiona Jackson, who directed the film An Evening with Richard O'Brien, says she's shocked he doesn't have New Zealand citizenship. "We've claimed him as our own. You would think making it legally so would be a formality."Source
Re-fucking-diculous in my humble opinion. We've always made such a huge song and dance about how he is "one of us" but the man can't retire here? Sheesh.

Cuter than Xtina's kid

People love baby videos. E*Trade babies and Evian Roller Babies and even an Iron Baby are not enough to slake the general population's thirst for infant cuteness.
Now Jake Wilson on the YouTube channel "The Battery's Down" has produced and posted "Baby Gaga -- Telephone," which is exactly what it appears to be -- a child (actually children a.k.a. 'little monsters') in a video put to the music of Lady Gaga's hit song "Telephone." The facial expressions on this child throughout the video are priceless. (And if you never thought of Lady Gaga as a pretentious over-grown child, this video might just make you think along those lines.) Those bored Marines over in Afghanistan made a great video, but even they will have to admit that this is one great piece of footage. So, hat's off to Jake Wilson and TheBatterysdown.com for this one...


Cherry Jones Quits Emmy Race

When Emmy voting commences after 6 p.m. PST today, TV academy members will be shocked by the status of two past champs. Last year's winner of best supporting drama actress, Cherry Jones ("24"), took her name off the Emmy ballot and the 2007 winner of best supporting drama actor, Terry O'Quinn ("Lost"), is back in the running after quitting last year.

Why did Jones bow out? Her rep won't say.

When Gold Derby asked her agent at William Morris Endeavor, Scott Henderson, for comment, he dodged the inquiry and referred us to a publicist at Fox TV. That rep said that the network submits "24" only in the race for best drama series. Actors submit themselves in the performance categories, so only Henderson or Jones can explain why she quit the Emmy derby just 10 months after winning.

Jones' refusal to explain her snub will inevitably fuel speculation that she's upset with "24" producers over how her role evolved as U.S. president. While she told Entertainment Weekly that she's satisfied with how her character played out, she also confessed that producers dangled her throughout the final season, not mapping out a clear story arc for the part, dismissing her from the show, then bringing her back willy nilly.

When asked if she thought there will be an opening for her in the "24" feature film, she replied, "I can't imagine that would be the case."

Lady Gaga on 'Doctor Who'? + Torchwood Comic

Lady Gaga is reportedly being lined up to star in Doctor Who.

According to the Daily Star, the BBC wants to sign up the singer, 24, to play a villain in the series.

Scriptwriter Gareth Roberts said: "The script might end up on screen one day with Lady GaGa, who will have fallen on hard times."

A source added: "She is no stranger to dressing up and would be more than a match for the Doctor. It would be a great coup to get her."



Captain Jack is reunited with Gwen and... wait for it... Ianto in a new series of prequel comics, due out August 10 in the US. One of the stories is even written by The Great Barrowman himself!

Whitney Houston bombs in Copenhagen (surprise!)


Whitney Houston didn't get too good reviews after her two shows in Copenhagen, Denmark this past week. One reviewer who was oh so very nice to the diva after her first show, thursday, wrote;

"Yes she can sing, in a way that makes her sound like an ancient cabaret singer in a basement in the Bronx after her 40th smoke.... She was born with a gold spoon in her mouth. Unfortunately she's used the spoon to heat up her crack cocaine for too many years."
He gave her 1 out of 6 stars - which seemed to be the trend among all the reviewers. 

Reportedly the audience started walking out after the first couple of songs. Before the second show yesterday(friday), one newspaper wrote:

"7000 tickets[the cheapest tickets cost just under $100] have been sold for this evening's concert, but hundreds are now available at highly cut prices following what one critic described as "an out-of-breath 46 year old diva who was already hoarse after the first song"
