Anne HathawayHathaway Credits Parents With Acting Career

11 hours ago

Anne Hathaway credits her parents with inspiring her acting ambitions at an early age - because they never prevented her from playing out her childhood fantasies.

Hathaway grew up in New Jersey as the daughter of Kate McCauley, an actress who toured in a production of Les Miserables.

And The Devil Wears Prada star admits her parents' emphasis on creativity encouraged her to perform.

She tells Britain's GQ magazine, "We were focused on theatre. I never dreamt about being a star or having my name up in lights. Creativity was encouraged in our family household, embraced even. I would walk around singing all day, doing scenes, pretending all day long. My two brothers loved that. My parents never said, 'Pipe down!' or 'Quit that racket!'"

But the 27 year old insists she never longed to be a famous Hollywood star.

She adds, "I never had particularly romantic feelings about acting. My mother helped with that. I saw it as a job. An option." »

She reprised the role, which saw her romance a teenage boy, in two sequels.

Coolidge admits she's still being offered dates with young men 11 years on from the first film - and after recently splitting from her longtime boyfriend, she can finally say yes.

She tells the Boston Herald, "I had a boyfriend for a long time but now I'm single and a lot of young guys ask me out. And I say yes. They think I'm a horny mom. They say things like 'You look very nice tonight,' things like that. Guys my own age don't say those kinds of things - and when you get to my age, you don't hear it that often!" »

The Hollywood actress is mum to Honor Marie, her only child with husband Cash Warren.

And Alba admits she saw another side to the youngster on a recent family holiday.

She tells U.S. talk show host Jay Leno, "We realised on this trip that my daughter is a bully. She would steal her girlfriend's toys and push her and pull her hair for a stroller or a baby doll or a purse.”

Kardashian Fights Lawsuit From Former Maid

11 hours ago

Socialite Kim Kardashian has been caught up in a legal battle with her former maid over allegations of unpaid wages.

Isabel Hernandez, who worked for Kardashian during her four-year marriage to music producer Damon Thomas, has filed a lawsuit in Los Angeles County Superior Court accusing the former couple of failing to pay her her salary.

Hernandez claims she was forced to work for long periods of time and was only rewarded for her work in lump sums every few months.

She is angry after a $13,100 (£8,188) cheque she received in March, 2006 bounced, leaving her to rely on other funds to support herself. Hernandez is also requesting $300 (£188) for payment in 2009.

But Kardashian's lawyer Shawn Chapman Holley has hit back at the court papers, insisting the star isn't the person to sue for the missing pay cheques - because she had moved out of the marital home in Los Angeles prior to divorcing Thomas in 2004.

Hernandez is suing Thomas and Kardashian for breach of contract and is demanding $29,000 (£18,125) in damages, reports

Kardashian - who was just 19 when she wed Thomas - has since moved on and is dating American footballer Reggie Bush. »

Walsh's Divorce Nears End After Reaching Financial Settlement

11 hours ago

Actress Kate Walsh is celebrating after a Los Angeles judge denied her estranged husband Alex Young the right to spousal support in their ongoing divorce battle.

The Private Practice star has been locked in a war of words with Young since separating from him in 2008 and ending their 14-month marriage.

The split turned nasty when Walsh attempted to block her ex from claiming alimony, prompting Young to demand to know the true value of the actress' TV contract with America's ABC network in a bid to land a big money settlement.

The former couple faced each other in court on Thursday, when a judge dismissed Young's claim to spousal support.

However, Young is entitled to half of Walsh's earnings from the episodes of hit medical dramas Grey's Anatomy and Private Practice filmed during their union.

After hours of negotiations, Walsh also agreed to give Young $627,000 (£391,875) for his share of the community property, while the actress will keep their marital home.

She's now set to hit cinemas with blockbusters including The Wolfman and Gulliver's Travels, but insists she's not chasing big money movies.

And Blunt praises her The Wolfman co-star Benicio Del Toro for offering her some good advice.

She adds, "I think Benicio put it best. He said, 'C'mon, man. I like candy too, y'know?'. That's how I feel. Why should you have to atone for making big movies?" »

Anne Hathaway's entire family denounced Catholicism after her elder brother Michael 'came out' as gay.

The Devil Wears Prada star was a member of the Catholic Church growing up in New Jersey, but the actress and her parents, Gerald and Kate, as well as her younger sibling Thomas decided to leave the faith to support Michael after he revealed his sexuality.

She tells Britain's GQ magazine, "The whole family converted to Episcopalianism after my elder brother came out. Why should I support an organisation that has a limited view of my beloved brother?"

A second design was then drawn up which included the pair - and MacLaine is baffled why they were left off the original.

The on/off couple ended their turbulent romance for good last year following a series of spats.

But the dramatic relationship is back in the spotlight again after the former lovers reportedly fell out while Ronson was DJing at the Crown Bar in West Hollywood.

Editors of Radar Online allege Lohan became irritated when she failed to gain Ronson's attention and the encounter turned nasty.

A source tells the website, "Sam was working her usual weekly gig DJing at Crown bar. Lindsay turned up around 11pm and she was in the mood for trouble! Lindsay was trying to get Sam's attention, but she was working and studiously ignored Lindsay. You could see Lindsay getting more and more worked up the more Sam didn't pay her any attention.

"Sam just got sick of it all in the end though and started taunting Lindsay about her being all drunk and messed up. That made Lindsay just totally flip out on Sam. She picked up a drink and threw it straight in her face! Sam was absolutely furious and picked up some DJ equipment that was by her and threw that at Lindsay. It was crazy!

"Lindsay's friend grabbed her and pulled her away before things got even worse."

Ronson fuelled reports of a spat with her ex-girlfriend in an angry post on her page in the early hours of Thursday morning. The message reads, "I'm all about turning the other cheek, but sometimes you gotta stand your ground. Warning: I ain't taking this s**t no more." »

The Italian businessman was sentenced to four-and-a-half years behind bars in December, 2008 after pleading guilty to 14 counts of wire fraud, conspiracy and money laundering.

Hathaway dumped Follieri in June, 2008, shortly before he was arrested by federal authorities and admitted to scamming more than $3.6 million (£2.25 million) from investment and real estate firms.

The Devil Wears Prada actress was forced to hand over all the expensive gifts Follieri had lavished on her during their four-year romance for prosecutors to use as evidence in the case.

Stern Linked To Idol Job

Shock jock Howard Stern is the latest big name rumoured to be in the running to take over from Simon Cowell on American Idol.

Cowell has headed the U.S. talent show's panel since its inception in 2002, but announced last month he will leave the programme when his contract expires in May.

His departure has prompted speculation over who will take his place on the show, with recent guest judges Victoria Beckham and Katy Perry among the rumoured replacements. Actor/singer Jamie Foxx and American Idol host Ryan Seacrest have also been linked to the post, but both denied rumours they are set to step into Cowell's place.

Now controversial radio DJ Stern is rumoured to be in talks with TV executives to join the judging panel alongside Ellen DeGeneres, Kara DioGuardi and Randy Jackson.

A source tells New York Post gossip column Page Six, "(American Idol) is one of the few shows that could compete with Stern's $100 million-a-year Sirius contract, and Idol bosses think he'd be even nastier than Simon."

Stern recently announced he is looking for work when his contract with Sirius Xm Radio expires next January, and during his radio show on Wednesday he hinted he has been approached by TV bosses about a new job.

He said, "Recently I was approached by a major TV network to take over a TV show and leave here and do that next year - and I did turn it down. Well, I didn't turn it down. I started to entertain it and think about it, and then I probably think my demands are pretty heavy and they were attempting to negotiate and I said 'you don't have to'." »

The young star of upcoming film Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief sparked speculation he's in talks to play the superhero in a movie prequel after admitting, "There have been a few discussions, it's definitely something I'm looking into."

But a spokesperson for Hollywood studio Sony Pictures insists they haven't approached the teen, confirming, "No offers have been made, nor have any business discussions been made with Lerman."

The Hairspray star has been regularly updating her page to give hints about a new man in her life, and she prompted speculation of a romance with Drake with one message which revealed her lover failed to win at the Grammy Awards last week.

She wrote, "The guy I love is the most talented person ever!!!!!! I'm irritated that a certain guy didn't win certain awards... He deserved them!!!"

The California Governor was hit with a $79,064 (£49,415) lien over claims he had fallen behind in payments from 2004 and 2005, although his spokesperson insisted last year the matter was a misunderstanding.

Chapman Looking For Kidney Donor

18 hours ago

30 Rock star Grizzwald Chapman is appealing for a kidney donor - after losing the 150 pounds (68 kilograms) he needed to shed before undergoing a transplant.

The funnyman suffers from sever hypertension and must undergo dialysis three times a week - but doctors informed the 505-pound (230-kilogram) star he would need to shape up before they could perform kidney replacement surgery.

Chapman, who plays Tracy Morgan's sidekick on the hit TV comedy, is now hoping to find a suitable organ donor after slimming down to 350 pounds (159 kilograms).

He tells U.S. newsman Larry King, "When I first came down with the sickness (hypertension), I was 505 pounds. And they will not do the kidney transplant at that weight. So I had to bring myself down to a reasonable weight, anywhere from 300 to 350 pounds, in order to have the kidney transplant. I'm actually right now at 350.

"Now it's just a process of getting the right person to donate the kidney because, being that I'm a larger man, I just can't take a smaller person's kidney. Everybody's kidney is the size of their fist and I have a pretty big fist. So I'm going to need a pretty decent sized kidney."

His 30 Rock co-star and close friend Kevin Brown is hoping he'll be a match - and he's offered his support by joining in Chapman's battle to get healthy.

Brown adds, "I have absolutely considered it (donating a kidney). We've really just got to see, you know. We've got to see if I'm healthy enough, because, you know, Grizz (was) over 500 pounds when we met. And that was in 2006 when we first met doing the pilot of 30 Rock.

"We both had problems with our weight. I wasn't as heavy as he was, but for him to get down and lose 150 pounds was very impressive. And I wanted to join him in his struggle to lose the weight. So I recently started (diet program) NutriSystem just so I could lose the weight and give him that moral support (to say), 'Hey, you're not the only one trying to lose the weight, I'm trying to lose it.'" »

Portman's Broadway Fears

18 hours ago

Natalie Portman is desperate for another turn on Broadway - but fears inflated ticket prices have stifled creativity in theatres.

The Hollywood actress last appeared on the New York stage in 2001, in a production of Chekhov's The Seagull, alongside Meryl Streep, Kevin Kline and Philip Seymour Hoffman.

She also appeared on Broadway in 1997, playing the lead role in an adaptation of The Diary of Anne Frank.

But Portman fears she may not get another chance to tackle a gritty role in a play - because high prices mean many theatre-goers are unwilling to buy seats for less well-known productions.

She tells the New York Post, "It's gotten so expensive that the audiences you get aren't up for something experimental." »

Stewart Snap Lands Court Worker In Trouble

18 hours ago

Kristen Stewart's generosity with fans has backfired on her - a court worker faces losing his job after the Twilight actress posed for a photo with him while on jury duty.

The 19 year old was in Los Angeles Superior Court earlier this week (begs01Feb10) to serve jury duty and was happy to join a security guard and his pal for an impromptu snap.

But the picture has landed the unidentified guard in trouble, after it was posted online by his pal's wife.

She hastily removed the photo from the web, stating, "Cancelled because unfortunately the photo that went up from Kristen in court was stolen and put on several blogs and got to the media (the press) and reached the ears of the court. Right now my husband and the security guard are in trouble for it having gone up and second because it is confidential when celebrities are in court."

Kind-hearted Stewart is hopeful the picture leak won't land her fans in trouble - but fears the worst.

She says, "Now I feel bad... I am really scared, because I think it is possible that they could lose their jobs." »

No Autopsy For Mentell

18 hours ago

Police have ruled out alcohol as a factor in the death of Boston Legal star Justin Mentell, who was involved in a fatal car accident on Monday.

The actor died after his Jeep swerved off a road near Madison, Wisconsin and authorities have deemed an autopsy unnecessary, because the star did not fall asleep at the wheel and was not drunk before the crash, according to his longtime friend.

Mentell's pal Sharon Yap tells cops believe Mentell missed a sharp curve in the road, causing him to crash into an embankment.

She explains, "He was on a very dark rural road and they think that he missed the curve. He went straight into the embankment. It was a rural area with no streetlights. He was driving late at night before sunrise so it was dark. A farmer found him.

"He was a vegetarian and lead a very healthy lifestyle. He went too soon."

A funeral for the 27 year old will be held in his home state of Texas on Sunday.

On 13 February a memorial service will be held in his honour at the Jack Benny Center for the Arts in Waukegan, Illinois. »

Harper To Tackle Bankhead On Broadway

18 hours ago

Veteran actress Valerie Harper is bringing her portrayal of controversial Hollywood actress Tallulah Bankhead to Broadway.

The 70 year old, best known for her role in 1970s TV series The Mary Tyler Moore Show, will revive her part in Looped, which opened in California in 2008 and is heading to the New York stage later this month.

The production is based on a real event in the life of Bankhead, when she showed up intoxicated on the set of 1965 movie Die! Die! My Darling! and struggled to record one line of dialogue.

And Harper admits she was reluctant to take on the role of Bankhead because of the bad language in the play.

She tells the New York Post, "My only worry at first was the salty language. The F-bomb is all over, so don't bring the kiddies. I worried how the audience would take it. We tried it out at the Pasadena Playhouse (which is full of) retirees. When I said some outrageous line, you'd hear, 'Oh, Lord...' Like they couldn't believe an old broad would say such rowdy things.

"I don't curse a lot in real life. Maybe the occasional S-word, and that's it. I'd complain, 'I can't really say these lines. The audience won't take it from me.' But Pasadena proved me wrong. I found the biggest laughs were based on the vulgarity.

"Tallulah was so vulgar. She'd say exactly what she did with Gary Cooper. Even with Joan Crawford. She wasn't worried about the words. Didn't care. She loved to shock. And she was funny." »

Hathaway Turned Down Alice In Wonderland Lead

18 hours ago

Anne Hathaway turned down the title role in Tim Burton's new Alice In Wonderland movie - because she was fed up with playing a "pretty girl in a fairy dress."

The actress was asked to star as Alice in the upcoming fantasy film but opted instead to play the White Queen - because she had previously played a pretty protagonist in The Princess Diaries movies which launched her career.

The role of Alice eventually went to Australian newcomer Mia Wasikowska, but Hathaway has no regrets about her decision.

She tells Britain's GQ magazine, "The studio had the Alice script a long time ago and I was approached back then for the part of Alice. I considered it, but felt, what with The Princess Diaries, that I had been there, done that sort of pretty-girl-in-a-fairy-dress role. I told the studio, however, that if they found a director eventually, that I would be interested at a later date in playing the White Queen.

"When Tim came on board he had the cast he wanted and, of course, that didn't include me. But the other actress who was marked had scheduling conflicts, so the studio piped up and put me forward. I talked on the phone with Tim and he really liked my take. I wanted the Queen to be a cross between Debbie Harry, Greta Garbo, David Bowie, with (a) little bit of the work of Dan Flavin thrown in for good measure."

And the 27 year old is confident cinema-goers will love Burton's interpretation of the Lewis Carroll classic, adding, "I'm not sure how much I'm supposed to tell you but no one's given me my marching orders as yet. It's not exactly Alice in Wonderland, nor Through The Looking Glass. Tim has Alice come back to Wonderland - but ten years later." »

Monjack Stunned By Murphy's Cause Of Death

18 hours ago

Brittany Murphy's widower Simon Monjack was stunned to learn the actress died of pneumonia, aided by anaemia and drug intoxication - because he was convinced a heart defect killed his wife.

A coroner's report determined the Clueless star died accidentally on 20 December after contracting pneumonia and suffering iron deficiency condition anaemia.

Officials also ruled "multiple drug intoxication" played a role in her death, but confirmed no illegal drugs were found in her system.

Monjack admits he struggled to accept the pneumonia report - because he believed Murphy's death was due to a congenital heart murmur she was diagnosed with in her teens.

He tells, "Everything (surprised me and Brittany's mom about the report). I expected (the cause of death) to be her heart.

"She wasn't coughing up. I've had pneumonia and coughed up handfuls of spittle. So yeah, everything surprised us, everything."

And Monjack, who married Murphy in 2007, admits he's relieved to have answers following the sudden tragedy, adding, "Case closed. As the coroner said, there's no foul play." »

Crook Quits Pirates

23 hours ago

British actor MacKenzie Crook has followed in the footsteps of Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightley by quitting the Pirates Of The Caribbean film franchise.

Knightley announced her departure in 2008, and Bloom revealed last month he wouldn't be starring in 2011's Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides

And Crook, who played comedy pirate Ragetti in the first three films, has confessed he won't be starring in the fourth instalment either.

He tells Britain's The Independent newspaper, "They haven't asked me. But actually I don't mind that at all. I'm a fan of the first one especially and I think the trilogy we've made is great. I'd almost like them to leave it there.

"If people want more, then, sure, give them more if you can keep the standard. Quite possibly they do and quite possibly they can, so that's great. But my pirating days are over."

Brockovich: 'Film Was My Curse'

23 hours ago

The lawyer Julia Roberts turned into a U.S. heroine in Erin Brockovich a decade ago has confessed the film was "a curse".

Roberts won an Oscar for her portrayal of the legal champion of the underdog but the real Brockovich has revealed the movie was far from a blessing.

Looking back, the lawyer tells In Touch magazine, "The movie turned my life upside down. It was my curse.

"I got mean comments about my looks, my bustier and my foul language. People would send rude letters... Sometimes it was more than I could bear."

And, when she became an overnight celebrity, Brockovich admits she was always away from home - and her relationship with her daughter Elizabeth suffered.

The teenager turned to marijuana and cocaine and didn't have her mum around to steer her in the right direction.

Elizabeth is 18 now and the lawyer insists she has a great relationship with her daughter again: "Everything is so much better now between us."

She can't say the same about Roberts - the two women never speak - but she'd like to meet up with the actress to mark the film's 10th anniversary. »

Mueller's Mum Sick Of Awful Stories

23 hours ago

Charlie Sheen's mother-in-law has spoken out about her daughter's recent hospital and wellness clinic stint, insisting a recent spell of bad health had nothing to do with drugs, drink or the state of her marriage.

Reports suggesting Brooke Mueller has relapsed into a crack and alcohol problem have been rampant ever since the real estate agent checked into hospital last month, and then spent time at the Two Dreams facility in North Carolina.

Gossips also felt sure the bout of bad health was triggered by the stress of her Christmas Day fight with Sheen, which landed the actor behind bars - and led to him being ordered to stay away from his wife.

The couple briefly reconciled while she was in hospital in Los Angeles, but they're still estranged pending a court hearing.

Mueller tells In Touch magazine, "There are so many lies out there,” and her mother is keen to set the record straight.

She tells the publication that the 32 year old was taken to the hospital on 20 January with a dangerous fever resulting from having her wisdom teeth removed. It had nothing to do with drink or drugs.

Moira Fiore says, "The infections and pneumonia are what caused the shutting down of her organs. Brooke was very sick."

And Fiore wants the gossip swirling around her daughter to stop: "This is ridiculous... There were tubes down her throat. How in the world would anyone in this position do drugs?"

The angry mum is also targeting tabloid reports suggesting Mueller attended rehab for drinking while pregnant with her 11-month-old sons, Bob and Max: "It’s so horrible to say (that). She would never put her boys at risk."

Mueller reportedly checked out of the Two Dreams on Thursday after a week of treatment to reduce her stress levels. »

Hamilton's Warning To Cameron's Wife

23 hours ago

Actress Linda Hamilton is convinced ex-husband James Cameron will leave his wife one day - because he always wants what he can't have.

The Terminator star embarked on a relationship with the filmmaker in the early 1990s and the pair had a daughter together before marrying in 1997.

They split just eight months later when Cameron rekindled a previous relationship with Suzy Amis, who starred in his movie Titanic.

And Hamilton has a stark warning for the actress, who wed Cameron in 2000.

She tells Britain's Daily Mail newspaper, "The woman he can't get is always his dream girl.

"It's interesting because while he was making Titanic, Suzy at that time was the gargoyle on the end of my bed, waiting to swoop in.

"Now I'm the gargoyle on her bed because for Jim, the one who doesn't end up with him is always the one he wants. I'm the one who got away, and she has to live with that."

Cameron has been married five times - to Hamilton and Amis, as well as to Sharon Williams, Gale Anne Hurd and Kathryn Bigelow. »

Klum Not Impressed With Waxwork's Boobs

4 February 2010 5:31 PM, PST

Heidi Klum fears waxwork artists made a boob with her breasts while crafting her likeness for the German Madame Tussauds - because her lifelike double is too chesty.

The supermodel admits the Berlin-based waxwork looks a lot like her - but it's not a perfect mirror image.

She says, "It's a little off... Mine (boobs) touch and they're a little bit apart... and (mine are) not as perky, after four children." »

Bridges Was An Over-protected Baby

4 February 2010 5:31 PM, PST

Oscar nominee Jeff Bridges was a protected child because his baby brother, Garrett, died 18 months before he was born.

The actor reveals his parents were devastated when the two month old died in his sleep and almost didn't have him as a result.

Bridges says, "Can you imagine going in there (nursery) and seeing your kid just dead in the bed? I can't imagine anything worse than that."

But the couple's doctor, Leon Bellas, encouraged them to try for another child - and they honoured him by naming their third son after the medic.

Bridges explains, "My middle name is Leon."

The Crazy Heart star's early years were suffocating - because his mother wouldn't let her baby boy out of her sight.

He tells Rolling Stone magazine, "She said, 'I'm amazed that you aren't more screwed up... because the first year and a half of your life I had you sleep right next to my bed, and I kept waking you up all night long.'"

But Dorothy Bridges' protective streak ended when Jeff and his brother Beau turned wild.

The movie star adds, "She started to chase us with a coat hanger, to beat us with it. But we were faster and more agile and we would inevitably take the hanger and start to chase her around." »

Lerman To Play Spider-man?

4 February 2010 5:31 PM, PST

Hollywood newcomer Logan Lerman has emerged as the frontrunner to take over web-slinging from Tobey Maguire in the new Spider-man movie.

The young star of upcoming film Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief has revealed he's in talks to play the superhero's alter-ego, Peter Parker, in a movie prequel.

Appearing on Los Angeles radio programme The Billy Bush Show on Thursday, the teenager revealed, "There have been a few discussions, it’s definitely something I’m looking into.

"It’s one of my favourite characters ever and I’m a huge fan of the series. I’d love to have more conversations about it. I’m definitely very interested in it."

The new film came about when Maguire and Spider-Man 4 director Sam Raimi quit the project last month, and Sony bosses decided to go in a different direction with their superhero film franchise. »

Farrow Urges Support For Haitian Orphanages

4 February 2010 5:31 PM, PST

Actress and activist Mia Farrow has urged the world to support the children of Haiti, after 10 Americans were charged with attempting to illegally smuggle 30 young earthquake survivors to the U.S.

The Rosemary's Baby star was appalled by news suggesting members of a Christian charity group were trying to take Haitian children away from their families and out of the country last week (ends31Jan10).

She has branded the smuggling attempt "deplorable" - and insists offering parents a better life for their children elsewhere is "completely unacceptable and immoral".

Farrow, who herself has adopted 11 children, has called on U.S. citizens to support orphanages and families struggling to rebuild their lives in Haiti, which was hit by a 7.0-magnitude quake on 12 January.

And she isn't the only actress with her mind on Haiti's children - Kristin Chenoweth revealed earlier this week she is considering adopting an orphan from the country, after being so "moved" by the devastating scenes of destruction on TV and in newspapers. »

Sheen 'To Be Charged With Assault'

4 February 2010 5:31 PM, PST

Charlie Sheen will be charged with misdemeanour assault and felony menacing ahead of a court hearing on Monday, according to a new U.S. report.

The actor was arrested on Christmas morning in Aspen, Colorado following a domestic dispute with his wife Brooke Mueller. He spent much of the day behind bars and then was ordered to stay away from his wife.

The temporary restraining order was briefly lifted last month to allow Sheen to visit Mueller in hospital, where she was battling pneumonia, and lawyers for the estranged couple are set to appear in court on Monday to request a judge relax the terms of the order, allowing the pair to resume contact.

But, before the hearing, Sheen will be charged, according to

Insiders tell the website the criminal complaint will be filed late on Friday or on Monday morning. »
