Jessica BielScarlett Johansson Biel & Johansson To Play Psycho Stars Mills & Leigh

 

Jessica Biel and fellow movie pin-up Scarlett Johansson have signed on to play the leading ladies of Alfred Hitchcock's thriller Psycho in a new movie about the making of the classic.

Biel, who is engaged to Justin Timberlake, and Johannson, who was once romantically linked to the pop star after playing his love interest in the steamy What Goes Around... Comes Around video, will play Vera Mills and Janet Leigh respectively in Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho.


Deadline.com reports James D'Arcy will portray Psycho star Anthony Perkins, while Sir Anthony Hopkins and Dame Helen Mirren will play Hitchcock and his wife, Alma. »

 


TV Producer/Director Henry Dead At 92

 

Bob Henry, the man behind Nat 'King' Cole's cult 1950s variety show, has died at his home in California.

The TV producer/director, who also took charge of The Flip Wilson Show, passed away on Sunday, aged 92.

Henry was famous for bringing African-American stars to mainstream U.S. TV.

He also directed and produced variety shows for Andy Williams, Glen Campbell and The Carpenters. »



Corden Drops 70 Pounds

 

The Three Musketeers star James Corden has adopted a new health kick after losing a whopping 70 pounds (31.8 kilograms).

The funnyman is currently starring in Broadway play One Man, Two Guvnors and Corden insists his rigorous stage routine and healthier eating habits have helped him slim down.

He tells Vogue magazine, "Look, I'm never going to be a little fellow - in fact, I'm still huge. I'd like to lose a little more weight, but there's no need to worry I'll go too far. It wouldn't suit me to have a 28-inch waist, because I'd still have a giant lollipop head."

However, the actor confesses there is one downside to his new figure - his clothes don't fit him anymore.

He adds, "I have to get rid of a lot of suits. It's impossible to take six inches off a suit - the pockets will end up round the back." »



O'Dowd Undergoes Knee Surgery

 

Bridesmaids star Chris O'Dowd has undergone surgery on his knee.

The Irish funnyman checked in to hospital on Wednesday and took to his Twitter.com blog before his operation to joke about the treatment with fans.

He wrote, "Thanks for the good wishes re. Operation. Don't worry, nothing serious, just a follow-up on my d**k reduction. #DodgyKneeCartlidge".

The surgery was a success and O'Dowd later updated his followers by posting, "I'm alive! Thank the lord I'm alive!" »



McCarthy Found Love On Reality TV Set

 

Model/actress Jenny McCarthy has found love while hosting a new matchmaking show in the Dominican Republic.

The sexy star refused to go into details about her latest love interest, but revealed she "had some fun" there during an interview on Access Hollywood Live on Wednesday morning - and hinted that she fell for a castmember.

She said, "You're on an island with all these contestants that are gorgeous."

McCarthy admits show producers feared she'd be smitten while hosting the reality TV show, Love in the Wild, and told her she'd have to wait until filming wrapped before getting romantic.

She explained, "They said, 'Jenny, you can't sleep with anybody...' so we didn't sleep together. We just made out."

The new show features 14 single men and women looking for love while competing in a series of contests. »



Crowe Gets Apology From Virgin Officials

 

Actor Russell Crowe has received an apology from officials at Sir Richard Branson's fitness firm after he was rudely turned away from one of their gyms in England.

The Gladiator actor, who is currently in the U.K. shooting Les Miserables, was desperate for a work-out on Wednesday and contacted staff at the Virgin Active's Royal Berkshire Health & Racquets Club in Bracknell, England, who invited him to check out their facilities. But when he arrived at the fitness mecca, he was locked out because he wasn't a member.

The snub angered Crowe and he vented his frustration in a series of Twitter.com posts, calling the staff "Hoity toity (posh)" and urging Branson to "have fit/smart folk rep your brand".

His stinging comments appear to have caught the attention of Virgin Active bosses - a member of the company's public relations team has reached out to the actor to offer her sincere apologies for his treatment.

Crowe took to Twitter again late on Wednesday, to follow up, writing, "Nice email from pr lady @virginactiveuk. Think I'll just go where the regular folks hang Gold's Gym in Camberly, friendly spot".

One of Crowe's fans even identified himself as an employee at the Bracknell club and invited the star to work out with him over the next few days - but the actor respectfully declined.

He replied, "Mate, it's just a gym. Lumps of metal to pick up. I'll go with the friendly vibe... Good on you for having the nuts to get in touch. You sound a decent bloke (guy). All the best." »



Actress David's Bullying Hell

 

School bullies turned actress Karen David's teenage years into a living hell after she suffered an "infestation of zits".

The star of Kiefer Sutherland's new U.S. TV drama Touch was born in a small village in the Himalayan mountains in India and brought up in the U.K. and Canada.

Her unusual upbringing made her an instant target for bullies and the cruel taunts only got worse as she entered puberty.

She tells Star magazine, "I was bullied. I was different. I didn't fit in.

"When I hit puberty, I had an infestation of zits (acne). It was not easy. People were mean."

David insists she has put her difficult teen years firmly behind her, but she still cringes when she recalls the hurtful nicknames she received.

She says, "I laugh about it now, but they would call me names, like Chocolate Chip Cookie!" »



Crowe Upset After Lock-out At Branson's Gym

 

Fitness enthusiast Russell Crowe has taken aim at Sir Richard Branson's gym chain company - after he was recently barred.

Desperate for a recent work-out session during a trip to Britain, the Gladiator star phoned the nearby Virgin Active's Royal Berkshire Health & Racquets Club in Bracknell, England and was told to come on down.

But when got to the fitness mecca, he was locked out because he wasn't a member.

Returning to his hotel, the angry Oscar winner took to Twitter.com to post his displeasure, writing, "Called the Royal Berkshire Health and Raquets, come on down they said, 30 quid (pound), bit steep but ok, got there, sorry, members only.

"Hoity toity (posh) staff with chav (under class) accents. What's with that? Advice to virginactiveUK and Richard Branson have fit/smart folk rep your brand."

He later added, "F**k 'em, I'll spend my money elsewhere." »



Coleman To Play Dr. Who's New Companion

 

TV time traveller Dr. Who has a new sidekick - former British soap star Jenna-louise Coleman has been cast as his new assistant.

The 25-year-old ex-Emmerdale star, who played Connie in last year's Captain America: The First Avenger, will join Matt Smith in the cult sci-fi drama.

She'll replace Karen Gillan, who will depart the series later this year.

Coleman says, "I'm beyond excited, I can't wait to get cracking; working alongside Matt I know is going to be enormous fun and a huge adventure." »



Griffin Recovering From Surgery

 

Comedienne Kathy Griffin is recovering after undergoing surgery to remove a polyp on her uterus.

The U.S. TV personality was hospitalised on Wednesday, shortly after filming her comical last goodbyes in a YouTube.com video.

She said, "This is probably it. The Kathy show (my upcoming reality show)... probably won't even happen because I'm probably going to pass away."

However, hours later Griffin assured fans she was alive and well by taking to Twitter.com to announce the small growth was not cancerous.

Posting a saucy snap of herself in a hospital room, she wrote: "Uterus polyp Benign! But had to show u my sexxxy hospital 'leaky lady' panties." »



Vergara's Son Makes Documentary About Mum

 

Actress Sofia Vergara's son has turned filmmaker for a new documentary series about his famous mother.

Film student Manolo Gonzalez's Mi Vida con Toty is all about his mother's journey from their native Barranquilla, Colombia to Hollywood - as a young single mum.

The 10-episode series, featuring never-before-seen home videos, will air on YouTube.com's new Latin channel NuevOn from 15 April.

Vergara wed her childhood sweetheart at the age of 18 and gave birth to Gonzalez, who is now 20, when she was just 20 years old. The marriage ended in divorce. »



Sarandon Confirms Dating Rumours

 

Actress Susan Sarandon has confirmed reports suggesting she's dating her young business partner Jonathon Bricklin.

The Dead Man Walking star, who ended her 23-year relationship with Tim Robbins in 2009, fuelled rumours of a blossoming romance with her Spin table tennis club partner Bricklin in April, 2010, when the couple attended a New York film screening.

A representative for the actress later dismissed the speculation, insisting the pair's partnership was "strictly a business one" and Bricklin also laughed off suggestions he was her toyboy lover.

However, Sarandon, 65, recently acknowledged their two-year relationship for the first time, telling People magazine, "Dating is such a stupid word. You can say... we are collaborating in a lot of different areas." »



Jones Hints At Hollywood Blockbuster Role

 

British actor Vinnie Jones is set to star alongside fellow Hollywood hardmen Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone in an upcoming blockbuster.

The action stars have signed on for The Tomb, in which Stallone plays an engineer who is framed and incarcerated in a prison he designed. Schwarzenegger plays an inmate who helps his escape bid.

Casting details are currently scant, but Jones has confirmed he is seeking to join the pair in the movie.

And if he lands the role, former soccer ace Jones will be keeping a watchful eye on the veteran Rambo and Terminator stars.

The Snatch star tells The Sun, "I might have a film coming up with Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sly Stallone. Those boys are knocking on a bit (getting older). At least I'll be prepared if the action scenes get a bit too heavy for them." »



Wilde Returning For House Finale

 

Actress Olivia Wilde is set to reprise her role in House for the show's upcoming final episode.

The Tron: Legacy star joined the cast of Hugh Laurie's medical drama in 2007 but left last year after appearing in 80 episodes, to concentrate on her burgeoning movie career.

However, Wilde will return to her role of Dr. Remy 'Thirteen' Hadley for the finale of the show, according to TV Line.

The final episode is due to air in America in May. »



Denton Fronting Cancer Campaign

 

Actor James Denton has filmed a public service announcement (PSA) for an American cancer charity in honour of his mother who died of the disease.

The Desperate Housewives star fronts Stand Up To Cancer and Cancer Treatment Centers of America's new awareness campaign, entitled Better Questions, Better Care, which focuses on patient empowerment following their diagnosis.

Denton's mother Mary passed away in 2002 following a battle with breast cancer, and the actor felt compelled to lend his support to the organisations' initiative.

He says, "When my mother was diagnosed with cancer, one of the hardest challenges she faced was the overwhelming questions that came with that life-altering event.

"Her courage is what inspired me to partner with Stand Up To Cancer and Cancer Treatment Centers of America to remind patients and their caregivers through this PSA that knowledge really is power." »



Brand's New Girlfriend Is A Hungarian Model

 

Newly-single Russell Brand already has a new love in his life - Hungarian model Nikolett Barabas.

The Forgetting Sarah Marshall funnyman filed for divorce from singer Katy Perry in late December after just 14 months of marriage, citing "irreconcilable differences".

He has been spotted several times with a pretty brunette, and now she's been named as model Barabas, who has just been cast alongside Vinnie Jones and Michael Madsen in thriller movie Magic Boys.

And the couple already appears to be stepping up its romance - Brand took Barabas to lunch with his mum to celebrate Mother's Day on Sunday.

It comes as a welcome respite for Brand, who was charged with smashing a paparazzo's cell phone in New Orleans, Louisiana last week. He is currently free on bail. »



Kony 2012 Filmmaker Was Psychotic During Naked Meltdown

 

Jason Russell, the man behind the high-profile Kony 2012 campaign, was suffering from a psychotic episode when he was arrested over a bizarre naked rant in a street last week (ends16Mar12).

Russell was seized by cops in San Diego, California last Thursday for public drunkenness and masturbation following reports he was seen committing an obscene act and vandalising cars.

He was placed on a psychiatric hold so medics could assess his mental state, and now a spokesman for the family has revealed Russell was diagnosed with a brief reactive psychosis - a temporary psychotic episode triggered by stress.

He is likely to remain in hospital for several weeks.

The statement, obtained by TMZ.com, reads, "We would, again, like to make it clear that Jason's incident was in no way the result of drugs or alcohol in his body. The preliminary diagnosis he received is called brief reactive psychosis, an acute state brought on by extreme exhaustion, stress and dehydration...

"Though new to us, the doctors say this is a common experience given the great mental, emotional and physical shock his body has gone through in these last two weeks. Even for us, it's hard to understand the sudden transition from relative anonymity to worldwide attention - both raves and ridicules, in a matter of days...

"He is, and will remain, under hospital care for a number of weeks; and after that, the recovery process could take months before he is fully able to step back into his role with Invisible Children. During that time, we will focus not on a speedy recovery, but a thorough one."

Russell's film about Joseph Kony became an online hit when it was released earlier this month to bolster Invisible Children's upcoming 20 April publicity drive to snare the warlord, but became mired in controversy amid allegations of financial mismanagement at the charity and reports Kony has not been active in Uganda for years. »



Obama's Daughter Safe After Earthquake Scare

 

U.S. First Lady Michelle Obama has issued a rare public statement to assure the world the President's daughter Malia is safe after she was caught up in an earthquake drama in Mexico.

The 13-year-old is in the country for a school trip and sparked fears for her safety when a 7.6-magnitude tremor hit close to Acapulco on Tuesday.

President Barack Obama and his wife rarely discuss their children in public, but mum Michelle assured the country on Wednesday that their daughter is safe.

A spokesperson for her office told CBS News that Malia is "safe and was never in danger". »



Tennant Adopts Wife's Son

 

Doctor Who star David Tennant has become a dad-of-two after officially adopting his wife's son.

The Scottish actor has announced he's now father to Georgia Moffett's 10-year-old boy Tyler, her first child from a previous relationship.

Tennant made the decision to go forward with the adoption after he and Georgia became proud parents to baby daughter Olive in March last year.

Confirming his "double dad" status to U.K. radio DJ Christian O'Connell, Tennant says, "My baby is almost a year old and I adopted my wife's boy last year as well so I became a father twice in six months - that's got to be something of a record hasn't it?"

Tennant married Moffett, the daughter of another former Doctor Who, Peter Davison, on New Year's Eve in London. »



Director Grosbard Dead At 83

 

Director Ulu Grosbard has died at the age of 83.

He passed away at the Langone Medical Center in New York City some time between the hours of Sunday night and Monday morning.

Grosbard directed a slew of Hollywood icons throughout his career, among them Meryl Streep and Robert De Niro in 1984 favourite Falling in Love, and Whoopi Goldberg and Michelle Pfeiffer in his final movie Deep End of the Ocean.

The filmmaker, born Israel Grosbard, grew up in Belgium but then fled from the Nazis with his family to Havana, Cuba where he worked as a diamond cutter.

Upon moving to America, he earned his Bachelor's and Master's degree in English from the University of Chicago in Illinois and then studied at Yale Drama School before enrolling in the Army in the 1950s.

Ultimately pursuing his love of the theatre, Grosbard earned his first credit in 1962 after directing veteran Robert Duvall in off-Broadway play The Days and Nights of Beebee Fenstermaker and two years later he went on to oversee Dustin Hoffman in a revival of A View from the Bridge.

Later setting his sights on the film industry, Grosbard directed Martin Sheen in The Subject Was Roses, Duvall and De Niro in True Confessions and he twice reteamed with Hoffman for Straight Time and Who Is Harry Kellerman and Why Is He Saying Those Terrible Things About Me?

Duvall tells the New York Times, "Ulu was the kind of guy who wanted to see what you brought - and then we'd talk. He was very serious; he had keen perceptions about things. He was a pretty intellectual guy... There was a balance there between us. We hit it off right from the start. I wanted to work more with him. Whatever he brought to me, I did." »



Witherspoon In Baby Riddle Again

 

Actress Reese Witherspoon is at the centre of yet another baby riddle after a U.S. publication reported she's pregnant with her third child.

The Walk the Line star has been the subject of several baby rumours dating back to 2010 and each one has subsequently turned out to be false.

But American magazine UsWeekly is reporting the actress and her husband Jim Toth are now expecting their first child. Quoting "multiple sources", editors at the publication suggest Witherspoon is 12 weeks pregnant.

The couple wed at Witherspoon's ranch in Ojai, California in March last year, just a year after they started dating. The actress has two children by her first husband, Ryan Phillippe. »



Styler Slams Waterman Over Domestic Violence

 

Film producer Trudie Styler has taken aim at veteran British actor Dennis Waterman after he confessed he punched his ex-wife Rula Lenska.

The beloved TV actor is at the centre of a storm in the U.K. after he reportedly made the comment during an interview for Piers Morgan's Life Stories, which has not yet been broadcast.

It's alleged Waterman told the chat show host, "She certainly wasn't a beaten wife, she was hit and that's different... It's not difficult for a woman to make a man hit her... The problem with strong, intelligent women is that they can argue well. And if there is a time where you can't get a word in... and I... I lashed out... It happened and I'm very, very ashamed of it."

Now Sting's wife Styler, who is an active campaigner against domestic violence, has spoken out to condemn Waterman's comments, insisting it's never acceptable for a man to strike a woman.

She tells U.K. morning show Daybreak, "We can't condone violence to women in any shape or form. I haven't heard from Dennis Waterman myself, I believe that the show in which he said those things hasn't been aired, but hitting a woman is absolutely not on in any shape or form, in my book." »



David Trapped Inside Parking Garage

 

Larry David had a real life Curb Your Enthusiasm moment when the hapless actor was left trapped inside a garage.

The actor, who plays a constantly exasperated version of himself in the comedy series, attempted to leave a parking lot in Los Angeles on Sunday but failed.

Footage obtained by TMZ.com shows the 64-year-old funnyman struggling to open the parking gate before shouting to an assistant via the intercom, "I can't do it, I can't do this. I've put it in and paid $5."

David apologised to other drivers for the delay, but the flustered funnyman managed to eventually make his exit after asking another motorist to show him how to insert his parking ticket correctly. »



The Muppets Receive Hollywood Walk Of Fame Honour

 

The Muppets have been honoured with a Hollywood Walk of Fame star.

Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy and several other characters from the hugely successful film and TV series were at the ceremony to mark the occasion, and the green frog puppet thanked fans for their support.

He said, "Hi everyone. Thank you for coming. I want to say on behalf of the Muppets that we are just really happy to be here on Hollywood Boulevard joining some of the greatest names in showbiz."

The mischievous puppets first appeared on TV in the 1950s, and last year's hit film The Muppets showed they are still a draw at the box office.

They are the 2,466th recipient of a Walk of Fame star and they were joined by Lisa and Brian Henson - the daughter and son of The Muppets legendary creator Jim Henson.

Lisa Henson said, "As the Muppets once sang, 'Look at us. Here we are. Right where we belong,' and yes they do belong thanks to the lovers and dreamers and you the fans." »



Jones' Lifesaver Plea

 

Movie hardman Vinnie Jones is calling for British schools to teach kids a lifesaving resuscitation technique following English Premier League soccer star Fabrice Muamba's cardiac arrest during a game.

The Snatch actor and former soccer player was horrified at the scenes of Muamba receiving CPR on the pitch following his collapse on live TV on Saturday.

Earlier this year, Jones starred in a campaign for the British Heart Foundation, which aims to teach the public about a "kiss-free" alternative to mouth-to-mouth resuscitation - and now he's urging education officials to introduce the subject to the national curriculum.

In a column for The Sun, Jones writes, "What happened to Fabrice Muamba at the weekend was terrible to see. It wasn't just footballers, former players, people involved in the game or fans who were affected. What happened made everyone sit up and take notice... It's a daunting thought for anyone to think they might be faced with a similar situation... CPR should be taught in schools as part of the curriculum."

Muamba is currently recovering in hospital. »



West And Watson Celebrate TV Awards Win

 

Dominic West and Emily Watson scooped awards for their roles in controversial drama Appropriate Adult at the U.K.'s Royal Television Society Programme Awards on Tuesday.

The Wire star saw off Daniel Rigby and John Simm to land the Best Actor honour at the London ceremony after wowing judges with his turn as notorious British serial killer Fred West.

Watson, who played West's social care volunteer in the show, was named Best Actress, and was hailed by judges for her "subtle, nuanced and utterly compelling" performance. She beat This Is England star Vicky McClure and Ruth Negga, who played Shirley Bassey in the biopic of the superstar singer.

Sir David Attenborough's hit documentary series Frozen Planet lost out in the Science and Natural History category to Mummifying Alan: Egypt's Last Secret, while Luther, starring Idris Elba, was named best series.

The international award went to U.S. sitcom Modern Family, beating Australian series The Slap and Danish crime thriller The Killing.

The ceremony was hosted by Welsh funnyman Rob Brydon. »



Farrow Arrested On Drug Charges

 

Former model Simone Farrow has been arrested in her native Australia amid allegations she ran an international drug smuggling ring.

The blonde was seized by cops on the Gold Coast this week (beg19Mar12) after a month on the run. She had skipped bail after posting a $150,000 (£93,750) bond in Sydney in February.

She's accused of masterminding a drugs ring from her home in Los Angeles and arranging for consignments of crystal meth to be transported from the U.S. to Australia.

Farrow, a former Penthouse Pet and bikini model, reportedly claims she skipped bail because her life was in danger, adding, "The only reason I've done this is because someone was trying to murder me." »



Penn's Charitable Gesture To War Veteran

 

Kind-hearted Sean Penn showed his generous side after writing a $15,000 (£9,500) cheque to a debt-ridden Iraq war veteran, according to a report.

The Oscar-winning actor met the war hero during a dinner party at Penn's house and is said to have reacted in horror after hearing the veteran owed $15,000 in medical expenses from injuries sustained on the battlefield.

Penn left the room and came back with a cheque to settle the old soldier's debt, according to PerezHilton.com.

A source tells the website, "The guy was in total shock! He didn't know what to say and he started to tear up. He felt awkward accepting it and tried to give it back to Sean, but Sean refused. He actually went out of his way to make sure the guy felt comfortable accepting it. It was really sweet!" »



Hanks Calls 'Blacked Up' Video 'Hideously Offensive'

 

Tom Hanks has spoken out to condemn the actions of a man who was caught on camera standing next to the actor at a fundraising event wearing black face make-up, calling the incident "hideously offensive".

A video from 2004 has surfaced showing Hanks and Eagles rocker Glenn Frey taking part in a charity auction for St. Matthew's Parish School in Pacific Palisades, California.

In the footage, the stars are shown standing next to a man who has painted his face black, and the video has infuriated officials at a conservative group called the Congress of Racial Equality (Core).

Core officials have even urged U.S. President Barack Obama to stop Hanks from narrating his documentary The Road We've Traveled, which focuses on the politician's first term in office.

Core spokesman Niger Innis says, "I call upon President Obama, who has Tom Hanks doing narration to his campaign video, to cease, to remove Mr. Hanks' voice-over from his video, and end any association or affiliation with Mr. Hanks."

The Hollywood actor has now addressed the controversy and spoken out against the actions of the man in the video.

He says in a statement, "In 2004, I was blindsided when one of the parents got up on the stage in a costume that was hideously offensive then and is hideously offensive now. What is usually a night of food and drink for a good cause was, regrettably, marred by an appalling few moments." »



Hamm Caught Up In Beckenbauer Crush

 

Mad Men star Jon Hamm learned he had landed the role of Don Draper on the hit show during an elevator ride with German soccer legend Franz Beckenbauer.

The actor had just left a meeting with show creator Matt Weiner and "top brass" at the Hotel Gansvoort in New York when a TV executive he was riding the elevator with told him the big news.

He tells Playboy magazine, "In the elevator with us was Franz Beckenbauer... (and) literally, the moment they told me I got it (part), the elevator opened and the lobby was filled with photographers. The lights were flashing and people were rushing toward us, shouting, 'Oh my God, of my God!'

"For a split second, I was still on the adrenaline rush of getting the part (and thought the commotion was for me). But nope, it was just some excited Germans who wanted to meet their soccer hero." »



Wahlberg To Expand Burger Chain To U.K.

 

Mark Wahlberg's burger chain is heading to the U.K.

The actor and brothers, New Kids on the Block singer Donnie and chef Paul, launched Wahlburgers last year in their native Boston, Massachusetts and the restaurant has become such a huge success, The Departed star is set to take his high-class burgers to Britain and Ireland.

He says, "We do higher-end burgers. Yesterday, we sold 1,300. It's run by my brother, Paul, who is a five-star chef. We're opening a bunch of them in Britain and Ireland this year."

And the movie star admits he is stunned by the success of the fast food chain - although he always knew food fans would love his chef brother's recipes.

He adds, "When I first mentioned the idea of Wahlburgers, people were like, 'Oh my God, that's a stupid idea.'

"What they don't realise is how talented my brother is. I would never risk putting my name out there in a way that would end up being bad. You can get people to show up because of the name but they are going to come back because they like the food.

"A successful burger place takes maybe $2,400 a day. A really successful one does $6,000. We're making $17,000 a day. There are lines queuing around the corner." »



Baldwin Accuses Twitter User Of Harassing Girlfriend

 

Actor Alec Baldwin has accused a follower on Twitter.com of allegedly "threatening" and harassing his girlfriend.

The 30 Rock star is a big fan of the social networking site and often gets into heated debates with fellow users, but on Tuesday, Baldwin revealed he has been having trouble with one particular follower.

The actor claims the user has been sending negative messages to his partner, Hilaria Thomas, and he urged fans to flood the nasty follower's page with criticisms.

In a series of posts, he writes, "I have some wonderful, fully engaged and, sometimes critical people that I encounter here.

"Some of them, very few in fact, cross a line and, for example, attack my relationship with my daughter.

"One person, however, has really gone too far. That person... has entered the Twitter-verse only to harass my girlfriend.

"Harass in a way that is borderline threatening. I want you to go to her address, and read just a few of her posts, and give her your notice of her behaviour." »



O'Donnell Celebrates 50th Birthday With Tyson

 

Rosie O'Donnell put news of her axed talk show aside on Monday night to celebrate her 50th birthday with boxer Mike Tyson.

The Rosie Show on Oprah Winfrey's Own network has been cancelled after just one season as bosses at the struggling channel put restructuring plans in place.

However, O'Donnell refused to let her career woes put a dampener on her birthday and she celebrated in style in Chicago, Illinois.

The star and her fiancee Michelle Rounds partied at the city's Paris Club alongside 50 other women who were also turning 50, and the presenter was stunned when Tyson turned up to help her cut her cake after appearing on her talkshow earlier in the day.

The party will be aired as part of Wednesday's episode of O'Donnell's show. »



Gere's Rep Denies Pretty Woman Put Down

 

Richard Gere's publicist has lashed out at "false" reports suggesting the actor dismissed his most famous film Pretty Woman as "a silly romantic comedy".

The 1990 box office smash is one of the most successful rom-coms of all time, pulling in over $460 million (£287 million) at the box office, and Gere left fans stunned recently when he allegedly poured scorn on the movie, in which he played a successful businessman opposite Julia Roberts' hooker character, in a recent Australian interview.

According to Aussie magazine Woman's Day, Gere said of the film, "It's my least favourite thing. People ask me about (it), but I've forgotten it. That was a silly romantic comedy."

But now the star's rep, Alan Nierob, has hit back at the reporting, insisting Gere never made the comment.

He says, "(It's) all a bunch of Bs (bulls**t). He didn’t do an interview with that Australian publication."

However the magazine's editors are sticking by their story.

A statement to Access Hollywood reads, "Woman’s Day stands by our story and our journalist Henry Meller. He spoke to Mr Gere at the Sundance Film Festival ahead of and immediately after the premiere of Arbitrage."

Arbitrage is Gere's new film with Susan Sarandon. »



De Niro Apologises For 'Inappropriate' Fundraiser Joke

 

Robert De Niro has apologised for joking about the wives of the Republican U.S. presidential hopefuls during a fundraiser for Barack Obama on Monday night.

The Hollywood actor, his wife Grace Hightower and America's First Lady, Michelle Obama, hosted a dinner to raise donations for President Obama's re-election campaign at New York's Greenwich Hotel.

De Niro took to the stage in front of guests including movie mogul Harvey Weinstein and hip-hop supercouple Beyonce and Jay-z, but his speech fell flat when he made a joke he made about the wives of Republican presidential candidates Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum and Mitt Romney.

Before introducing the First Lady to the stage, he said, "Callista Gingrich. Karen Santorum. Ann Romney. Now do you really think our country is ready for a white first lady?"

Michelle Obama's aides weren't happy with the quip, telling CNN, "We believe the joke was inappropriate," and De Niro has now apologised for his comment in a statement.

He says, "My remarks, although spoken with satirical jest, were not meant to offend or embarrass anyone, especially the first lady." »



Jones Swears Off Camping After Nightmare Trip

 

Actress January Jones has sworn off camping after her sister was nearly swept away by a tornado during a childhood family vacation.

The Mad Men star grew up in rural Sioux Falls, South Dakota and one weekend her outdoors-loving mum packed up the family for a short getaway in the woods.

However, Jones reveals the trip almost ended in disaster due to a near-fatal brush with Mother Nature.

The Emmy Award-nominated beauty says, "We went camping once as kids. It was a flop. There was a tornado. It's South Dakota... (the weather patterns are) very random. My sister Jina almost got blown away. I'm not kidding. After that we got in the car and went home." »



Biel Rebelled On 7th Heaven Set

 

Actress Jessica Biel tormented producers behind her hit TV series 7th Heaven by constantly acting out on set.

The beauty was just 14 years old when she began playing the straight-edged daughter of a Protestant minister on the family-friendly drama back in 1996.

But Biel confesses she went through a wild stage in her teens and her bad behaviour often sent show bosses into fits of rage.

She tells W magazine, "I cut my hair supershort and dyed it blonde. I had to apologise to (producer) Aaron Spelling for doing that. He wasn't happy.

"When I turned 17 or 18, a really obnoxious friend sent a stripper to the set. I had to apologise for that too. The show was all about family values, and they took that position seriously. I was always apologising."

Biel was written out of the programme during the show's fifth season due to her alleged discontent with character Mary's clean-cut image and growing tensions with producers after she posed semi-nude for Gear magazine at the age of 17. »



Arquette Too Heartbroken To Date

 

Newly-single actor David Arquette has dismissed gossip suggesting he has thrown himself back onto the dating scene following his split from girlfriend Christine McLarty, insisting it's "too soon".

The Scream star began dating TV reporter McLarty last summer but they struggled to maintain a long-distance relationship and parted ways earlier this month.

Arquette, who conquered his alcohol issues in rehab last year, jetted off to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico for a sunshine break last week (ends16Mar12) and posted a few photos and updates for fans on his Twitter.com blog, prompting speculation that the actor was taking advantage of his new single status.

The false rumours have compelled Arquette to set the record straight.

In a tweet to fans on Tuesday, he writes, "Just to clarify - I took a lot of pictures in Cabo but was a complete gentleman. I danced and had a sober good time. No girls for me - 2 (sic) soon".

When asked by one follower if he felt the need to speak out because of a "guilty conscience", he replied, "no but haters report lies and i speak honestly. nothing to be guilty (about)".

Arquette split from his wife Courteney Cox in 2010 but the two remain friends. »
