29 May 2009 12:29 PM, PDT

Music producer Phil Spector has been sentenced to 19 years to life in prison for the murder of actress Lana Clarkson.

Kruger Danced To Escape Family Torment
29 May 2009 12:00 PM, PDT

Diane Kruger was so distraught at her father's descent into alcoholism, she became obsessed with ballet to take her mind off her traumatic home life.

The Troy star grew up in Germany but has not seen her dad for 13 years since his drink problem ripped the family apart.

And she was so desperate to escape her hellish home life, she threw herself into dancing as a coping mechanism.

She says, "My dad was an alcoholic and we left him. It was a bad situation at home and my mum, my brother and I left overnight... Ballet helped me through many things in life, gave me discipline and hope - something beautiful."


Dioguardi Was Bribed To Strip On American Idol Finale
29 May 2009 12:00 PM, PDT

American Idol judge Kara Dioguardi only agreed to strip off onstage during the reality show's finale last week after producers agreed to give money to charity.

Talent show bosses wanted DioGuardi to peel down to a bikini during a duet with contestant Katrina 'Bikini Girl' Darrell - but she was terrified about posing semi-nude in front of a U.S. television audience of 29 million people.

But they reached a compromise when producers agreed to write out a cheque to the good cause of DioGuardi's choice.

She says, "One of the producers had this idea. I was like, 'That wouldn't be too great. Me in a bikini onstage?'

"They had to bribe me by giving money to charity."


Indian Government Give Slumdog Child Stars New Homes
29 May 2009 12:00 PM, PDT

Slumdog Millionaire's young stars Azharuddin Ismail and Rubina Ali have been offered new homes by the Indian government - just days after director Danny Boyle purchased apartments for the child actors.

Boyle and the movie's producers plucked Ismail, 10, and Ali, nine, from impoverished obscurity to appear in the Oscar-winning film and established the Jai Ho Trust last year to help fund their education.

But the kids' plight has captured headlines in recent weeks after both children's families were booted out of their homes and forced to live on the streets of India by local authorities.

They had been homeless for weeks before Boyle flew into Mumbai this week (begs25May09) and revealed he had bought Ismail a brand new apartment, with plans to do the same for Ali.

And now India's chief minister, Congress party member Ashok Chavan, has waded into the controversy - revealing both stars' families have already been alloted new homes which will be ready in days.

A statement from Chavan reads, "The regional head of the Congress party said these two child actors were talented but were living in the slums and therefore should be given homes."

As WENN went to press, it was unknown whether the two families would have to choose between the homes.


Suspended Labeouf Denies Car Crash Claims
29 May 2009 12:00 PM, PDT

Actor Shia Labeouf has slammed reports he was involved in a car accident in California on Thursday, while he is banned from driving.

Comedian Jesse Coccoli claims Labeouf bumped the rear of her car at an intersection in Los Feliz and stopped to exchange insurance information.

She tells, "I think I said, 'I can't believe you just hit my car going two miles an hour,' and realised, it is him."

Coccoli claims the pair chatted and joked before going their separate ways.

But the Transformers star's representatives are accusing Coccoli of concocting the story - insisting Labeouf was miles away at the time.

A spokesperson says, "This story is completely fabricated. Shia was in Santa Monica with friends for the afternoon in question. This must be a clear case of mistaken identity."

Labeouf lost his license after he refused to give a breath sample following the Hollywood car crash that crushed his hand last year. The suspension ends in January 2010.


Gisele Is World's Top Earning Supermodel
29 May 2009 12:00 PM, PDT

Brazilian beauty Gisele Bundchen has been named the highest earning supermodel in the world after raking in $25 million (£16.6 million) in 2009 alone.

The catwalk stunner's contracts with top designer labels Versace, Christian Dior, True Religion and Ebel watches have helped Bundchen bank $9 million (£6 million) more than her closest competitor, Heidi Klum.

Seal's wife pocketed an estimated $16 million (£ million) in the last 12 months, while Adriana Lima lands third place in the Forbes poll with earnings of $8 million (£5.3 million).

Doutzen Kroes and Alessandra Ambrosio round out the top five with fortunes of $6 million (£4 million) each, while Orlando Bloom's girlfriend Miranda Kerr also makes the list - she is placed eighth with $3 million (£2 million).


Reeves Slams Child Support Lawsuit
29 May 2009 12:00 PM, PDT

Keanu Reeves has blasted a Canadian woman who alleges he fathered her four children, insisting he has no idea who she is.

Karen Sala, 46, claims she's childhood friends with the Speed star and that he is the father of her grown-up children.

She is taking legal action against the actor, demanding Reeves undergoes a DNA test to prove he's her kids' dad in a bizarre bid to land $3 million (£2 million) a month in spousal support and another $150,000 (£100,000) in child support.

Sala, who is representing herself in the lawsuit, further alleges she has been trying to settle the matter "privately" with Reeves over the years.

But Reeves, 44, has slammed the accusations.

His spokesperson says, "Karen Sala's allegations are completely false and absurd. Mr. Reeves has no knowledge of who she is."

And the actor's business manager has warned media outlets against giving more coverage to Sala's crazy claims, adding, "Before you disparage my client and lend validity to this, there's clearly something wrong with someone who claims child support after all the kids have grown. I'm just pointing that out."

29 May 2009 12:00 PM, PDT

Woman Jailed For Stalking Idol Singer
29 May 2009 9:00 AM, PDT

A cyber-stalker has been jailed for more than two years for hacking into former American Idol contestant Diana Degarmo's emails.

Tanya Quattrocchi, 23, pleaded guilty to four charges of stalking after she was caught intercepting DeGarmo's personal communications and breaking into her account on

She also hacked into the email accounts of the singer's mum Brenda and a pal, model Donielle Morris.

The Victoria County Court in Australia heard Quattrocchi, of Melbourne, was sentenced to 150 hours of community service in 2007 for blackmailing DeGarmo and stalking her over the Internet.

She was re-arrested in January this year after resuming her harassment campaign.

Sentencing Quattrocchi to 26 months in prison, Judge Lisa Hannan said DeGarmo had been left feeling constantly vulnerable as a result of having her personal communications hacked into.

DeGarmo came runner-up in the 2004 season of American Idol, and went on to record an album and appear on Broadway in Hairspray.


Sandler Swears Off A Return To Stand-up
29 May 2009 9:00 AM, PDT

Adam Sandler has vowed never to perform stand-up comedy ever again - after returning to his performing roots for new movie Funny People.

The star began his career at comedy clubs while he was studying at New York University. He was eventually spotted by a talent scout and hired as a writer on hit U.S. satirical show Saturday Night Live.

Sandler abandoned stand-up as his movie career took off, but returned to his roots with a role in Judd Apatow's new film - playing a comic.

The funnyman was forced back on stage during the shoot to perform in front of a live audience, and Sander admits the experience has put him off comedy routines for life.

Apatow tells Empire magazine, "Adam hadn't done stand-up comedy for 12 years. We arrived unannounced at a lot of clubs around town and I remember we were driving to one place and he just said, 'This is exactly why I don't do this - I so do not want to do this!'"

And the moviemaker is disappointed by his pal's decision, because he is convinced Sandler is a brilliant performer.

He adds, "Adam was one of the best stand-ups around. He has this gift that no one remembers. He killed (was brilliant)."

Funny People is due to hit cinemas later this year.


Kruger Wants Jackson's Baby
29 May 2009 9:00 AM, PDT

Diane Kruger has reversed her plans never to have children - her love for Joshua Jackson has convinced her to be a mum.

The Troy actress was adamant she would not want to start a family, but admits she is so smitten with the Dawson's Creek star she can't wait to have his baby.

Kruger has already emigrated to Jackson's native Canada to be close to him while he shoots TV show Fringe.

She says, "I think I want kids. I didn't think I would but now that I've met Josh I know that I'll have at least one. He has great values and that's important to me."


Parker Inspires Co-star Nixon To Try Surrogacy
29 May 2009 9:00 AM, PDT

Expectant mum Sarah Jessica Parker has inspired her Sex And The City co-star Cynthia Nixon to have a surrogate child of her own.

Parker and husband Matthew Broderick are expecting twins by a surrogate mother this summer, after failing to conceive a brother or sister for six-year-old son James Wilkie the natural way.

Friends claim Nixon, 43, is desperate to start a family with partner Christine Marioni, and is looking into surrogacy herself.

A pal tells the National Enquirer, "Cynthia realises at her age the odds of conceiving are slim.

"After a heart to heart with Sarah about the ins and outs of surrogacy and how it works, Cynthia and Christine decided it's definitely a path worth pursuing. Sarah put Cynthia in touch with the agency she used. Now Cynthia and Christine are hoping for a baby in 2010."

Nixon has two children from a past relationship.


Rudd Survived Armed Robbery
29 May 2009 9:00 AM, PDT

Hollywood star Paul Rudd narrowly escaped death when a mugger shot at him and missed during a robbery in California nearly 15 years ago.

The Knocked Up star was held up by a gunman after leaving a deli in the San Fernando Valley. The robber demanded Rudd's wallet, and threatened to shoot the actor unless he handed it over.

When Rudd insisted he had no money, the agitated crook pulled the trigger and a bullet whizzed through the star's hair - missing his skull by millimetres.

The gunman then grabbed the actor's backpack and fled.

Rudd recalls, "I just remember the sound of it. I remember people in the parking lot being really freaked out. But I just got very calm."

But he is making steps towards recovery and in a progress report hearing on Thursday afternoon, Commissioner Jane A. Godfrey declared he was "responding well" to drug treatment.

He is due back in court for another hearing on 25 June, reports


Richie: 'Rehab Brought My Parents Back Together'
29 May 2009 5:05 AM, PDT

Nicole Richie's stint in rehab did more than cure her addictions - the crisis also brought her warring parents back together.

The socialite's adopted parents, singer Lionel Richie and mum Brenda, split in 1988 when she was aged five. It was followed by a bitter divorce in 1993 which saw the superstar and his wife barely on speaking terms amid allegations of the singer's infidelity.

Richie admits relations between her parents didn't begin to heal until she was admitted to rehab in Arizona in 2003 to battle substance abuse problems.

And the Simple Life star is convinced worrying about their daughter revived the bond between the former couple - who are now great friends.

Nicole Richie tells TV talk show host Larry King, "I think I was 20 when they started talking. And they actually didn't start talking until I went to rehab. Now they're best friends. And it's really great."

29 May 2009 5:05 AM, PDT

Fashion designer Nicole Farhi was choked until she lost consciousness during a violent robbery at her London home last year.

The French-born style guru was attacked outside her residence in Hampstead, north west London last April, by two men who stole her money and jewellery.

Wood Green crown court in north London heard evidence this week (beg25May09) accusing Matthew Mykoo, 27, and his brother Daniel, 28, of grabbing 62-year-old Farhi from behind and strangling her on the driveway until she passed out. Matthew Mykoo is also accused of brandishing a knife in the alleged attack.

Farhi is one of 18 people allegedly targeted by the brothers in a string of raids.

Matthew Mykoo denies 16 counts of robbery, while brother Daniel has admitted all 16 charges against him.

The trial continues.

29 May 2009 5:05 AM, PDT

The Australian actress, who has two adopted children with her ex Tom Cruise, was delighted to give birth to her first biological child Sunday Rose last year - her first with husband Keith Urban.

Mark Wahlberg and his fiancee Rhea Durham celebrated the baptism of their youngest son with a church ceremony in Boston, Massachusetts last Sunday.

The couple planned the event at St. Margaret’s Catholic Church in Dorchester to coincide with Brendan Joseph's first birthday.

The family, including the pair's older children Ella Rae, five, and Michael, three, travelled from Los Angeles to the star's hometown for the baptism, which was held at the same church where they paid their last respects to Wahlberg's late father at his funeral last year.

The ceremony was attended by close friends and family, and saw Mark’s older brother Robert Wahlberg named godfather.

A source tells Radar Online, "Mark’s dad loved his older kids, Ella Rae and Michael. He didn’t live to meet Brendan so it was important for Mark to take the baby to the church were his dad was eulogised. It was a very loving and moving gesture on Mark’s part.”

Miller Terrified Of G.I. Guns
29 May 2009 1:00 AM, PDT

Sienna Miller doubted she would be able to play a convincing villain in G.I. Joe: The Rise Of Cobra - because she couldn't bring herself to fire a gun on the film set.

The actress was terrified of handling firearms for her role as femme fatale The Baroness in the forthcoming movie, prompting producers to pull her aside to ensure she was comfortable with the work.

She says, "It was scary. I got taken away from the group! They said, 'Sienna, you're a villain in this film and you look like you're terrified of the gun.' And I said, 'I am!' We were shooting live ammunition that could kill someone."


Richie: 'Madden Marriage Can Wait'
29 May 2009 1:00 AM, PDT

Pregnant socialite Nicole Richie has no plans to walk down the aisle with partner Joel Madden anytime soon - because she feels her family unit is already complete.

The Simple Life star has a daughter, Harlow, with the Good Charlotte star and, in February, the couple announced they are expecting another child.

And although Richie once dreamed of having kids after exchanging vows in a fairytale ceremony, she insists marriage isn't a priority now - because she already feels committed to Madden.

She tells U.S. talk show host Larry King, "Joel's family is actually very Christian and Joel grew up very Christian, and even his idea when he was little was, 'I'm going to get married and then I'm going to have kids'. (He was) very programmed that that's the order that everything happens in.

"And of course, when I was a little girl, I dreamed about getting married and that is definitely a dream of mine one day. But right now, we're really really focused on our family, we're focused on our foundation. As far as feeling that need of commitment, we both really have that in each other.

"I think for both of us, we are going to do it because we want to, not because that's what you do."

29 May 2009 1:00 AM, PDT

The former James Bond star was working on the set of Percy Jackson And The Lightning Thief when he noticed a runaway vehicle hurtling down a hill towards Thurman, according to reports.

And the actor immediately sprung into action - hopping into the stunt car and slamming on the brakes to veer into a curb instead of an assembled group of cast and crew.

Dennings' Parents Shocked By Sex Debut
28 May 2009 6:30 PM, PDT

Actress Kat Dennings' parents were left mortified when they hosted a TV party to watch their daughter's acting break - because they had no idea how racy Sex & The City was.

The young star was just 14 when she landed a part as a demanding Jewish teen on a show she had never seen - and her folks decided to sign up for cable TV just so they could see their daughter on screen.

Dennings recalls they invited family and friends round to watch the risque episode, in which their daughter's character boasted about her oral sex skills - but that wasn't the biggest shock.

The actress says, "It was an explicit episode (with) Kyle MacLachlan jerking off.

"My parents were like, 'Oh, Jesus Christ! Don't look.'"


Streisand To Release Interior Design And Architecture Book
28 May 2009 6:30 PM, PDT

Barbra Streisand is to share her thoughts about architecture in a new book, which will showcase her homes.

The singer/actress will chronicle the design and building of her new home in California, and look back at her other dream residences in A Passion For Design.

The Yentl star even revisits the modest Brooklyn, New York apartment she grew up in for the coffee table tome.

The book, which will hit stores in time for Christmas next year will be "the culmination and reflection of Barbra's love of American architecture", according to a press release from the publisher, Viking.

As well as writing the book, Streisand will share photographs she has taken.

She says, "Designing and building for me is about the creative process and transformation. One of the reasons I haven't made a movie since 2004 is because this last house was a five year, full-time job. Now that it's done, I'm thrilled to share it."


Graham Urges Women To Strip
28 May 2009 6:30 PM, PDT

Actress Heather Graham has urged women to get stripping - because the sexy act is so empowering.

The Boogie Nights star plays an exotic dancer in new comedy The Hangover and admits her pole dancing preparation was easy because she's had lessons before.

Graham is among Hollywood's hot ladies who have hooked up with actress and stripper teacher Sheila Kelley for her famous S Factor pole dancing classes - and now she's a regular.

She reveals, "I had taken this female empowerment class and Sheila Kelley came in and talked about her classes. I had actually taken her classes because my friend taught one of them. She worked at the Mayor's office and quit her job to become a pole dancing instructor.

"For this film I went back and took some refresher courses. It's a dance class but they teach you pole dancing moves and it reminded me how great it is... It's for any kind of woman, women of all different ages and sizes.

"As a woman, it's inspiring because any woman can feel sexy and you're cheering each other on. You're not doing it for like, 'Oh, just give me a tip.' Usually people wear shorts and a tank top or a bra and you just cheer each other on. You're doing it to feel good about yourself and see other women feel good about themselves."
