Ritchie To Relinquish Claim To Madonna's Fortune?
20 November 2008 8:02 AM, PST

Guy Ritchie is reportedly set to relinquish any rights to Madonna's fortune as part of their divorce deal - in a bid to win access to the couple's children.

The couple announced their separation last month and are currently in the middle of legal proceedings to make the break-up official.

The pop superstar is rumoured to be planning to leave England and return to her native U.S. with their children - eight-year-old son Rocco, adopted tot David Banda, three, and Madonna's 12-year-old daughter, Lourdes, from a previous relationship.

But Ritchie is said to be keen to see his young family remain in Britain.

Now the estranged pair is said to have reached a compromise in the ongoing custody battle - meaning Ritchie will walk away from the eight-year marriage without a financial settlement, according to London newspaper The Evening Standard.

A source tells the publication, "It will all be over by the end of the month. I am sure it will be announced by then. The priority for him has always been the children. Ritchie has not wanted any of her money. Ritchie could have taken her to the cleaners. It takes a very honourable man to have walked away. "

Affleck Calls For An End To Congo Suffering
20 November 2008 8:02 AM, PST

Hollywood actor Ben Affleck has been visiting refugee camps in the Democratic Republic of Congo - in a bid to draw more attention to the war-torn country.

The Pearl Harbor star met with aid officials and toured refugee bases on a trip to the Central African country, where some 250,000 people have been displaced by fighting.

Innocent civilians have had to put up with years of violence, mainly in eastern Congo, that escalated further this year when fighting heated up between the army and loyalists of rebel leader Laurent Nkunda.

And Affleck, who has made a documentary about the country's problems, is urging the world to take notice and help stop the suffering of innocent civilians.

He says, "I'm not an expert in international affairs or diplomacy, but it doesn't take that to see the tremendous suffering here. It's not something that we as human beings can, in good conscience, ignore.

"I'm really glad that more people are paying more attention to (Congo) now but I'm really saddened that it's taken this uptick (increase) in violence to make that happen."

And Affleck hopes speaking out about the problems in the area will attract others to turn their attentions to the Congo, just like pal George Clooney has done for the troubled region of Darfur in Sudan.

He adds, "My hope in being here is primarily to bring attention to the fact that there's a real lack of (aid agencies) here, a real lack of money going to these folks."


Jackson To Appear At London Trial
20 November 2008 4:07 AM, PST

Michael Jackson will travel to London to testify in a lawsuit brought against him by an Arab sheikh after medics gave him the all-clear to attend.

The Thriller hitmaker is being sued by Sheikh Abdullah bin Hamad al-Khalifa, the second son of the king of Bahrain, for allegedly reneging on a deal to record a new album and write an autobiography.

Jackson's lawyer Robert Englehart had initially argued in London's High Court on Tuesday that the singer was suffering from an illness and should be allowed to provide evidence via a video link.

But Englehart revealed on Thursday that Jackson will now fly over from the U.S. after being given the all-clear by doctors.

He is expected in court on Monday.

Englehart says, "He has been cleared by his medical advisers to travel in two days' time."

A source tells the magazine, "They ordered room service, took long walks and spent every second together. John really cares for Emily - he totally fawns over her. And she's loving the attention. She's a down-to-earth girl, but it's nice to be treated so well."

Both stars have managed to carve out successful careers in Hollywood, but the 30 Rock actor insists he can't help but envy Hanks' talent and continued popularity.

He tells U.S. news show Access Hollywood, "There's only one person I know who is enormously successful and he still has all this talent, he still has a sense of humour and he still has his wife."

And it isn't just Hanks' on-screen portrayals that he admires - Baldwin, who divorced spouse Kim Basinger in 2002, is also in awe of the actor's family life.

He adds, "He's got it all. He's got his wife. He's got his kids. He's got every movie he wants to make. Hanks is someone who I admire boundlessly. And he's still funny and he's happy."

Hanks has been married to second wife, actress/producer Rita Wilson, for the last 20 years.

The forthcoming film, which depicts the rise and fall of Argentine revolutionary Ernesto 'Che' Guevara, came under fire from New Latin American Film Festival president Alfredo Guevara in July for its controversial storyline.

Guevara said that film would not be shown in the country if it included any "attacks" on Castro - but the four-hour film is now set to be shown at the event.

However, Del Toro, director Steven Soderbergh and the film's American stars will still have to get government permission to attend the screenings, scheduled for next month.

Actress Jennifer Garner has been awarded a permanent restraining order against her alleged stalker, ordering him to stay away from her family for the next three years.

Under the permanent order, obtained on Thursday morning, Burky must also stay 100 yards (300 feet/91 metres) from the actress, husband Ben Affleck, their daughter Violet, the couple's nanny, housekeeper and others.

Burky first initiated contact with Garner in 2002, when he disguised himself as a college student in Ohio and then as a punk rocker at a record store in Los Angeles in order to meet her, according to the New York Daily News.

He even sent an email to a member of Garner's film crew in February, begging that the star be warned about a vision he had in which she would be persecuted by a mob.

Burky is reportedly under involuntary psychiatric hold following the Los Angeles Police Department's involvement in the case.

The drama series, about a family of con artists, won critical acclaim and a raft of awards - before being scrapped after its second season due to flagging ratings.

But comedian Izzard has now revealed he is in talks to make a film version of the show - which will be independently financed.

He says, "We've had the meeting and the writers are going to go off and slam out a story. We're going to raise money like (U.S. President-elect) Barack Obama through the internet, and we're going to shoot it guerilla-style."

20 November 2008 8:02 AM, PST

Barnes passed away on Wednesday after experiencing complications relating to the disease, according to his wife Valerie Taylor Barnes.

He also wrote the Attitudes column for Dance Magazine from 1989, and contributed to the French magazine Ballet 2000 and British magazine The Stage.

His last review for the New York Post appeared on 31 October, when he celebrated new talent at the American Ballet.

Griffiths Is Homesick On Broadway
20 November 2008 8:02 AM, PST

Actor Richard Griffiths is homesick for Britain, just two months into his run in the Broadway production of Equus.

The star, famous for his role as Uncle Monty in cult movie Withnail + I, is finding the glamour of New York City no substitute for his native London.

And he has completely lost touch with all the gossip and news back home.

He complains, "I've been here since August. I've no idea what's going on. Has the money gone to pieces? I miss home hugely. I can't wait to go back. I miss nice things. Tea... scones."

The only consolation for Griffiths is that the Big Apple's current cold spell makes it feel almost like England.

He adds: "At least the weather's the same."

20 November 2008 8:02 AM, PST

The Departed star insists his main priority is providing positive and educational surroundings for his young children - daughter Ella Rae, five, and sons Michael, two, and newborn Brendan Joseph.

And he admits that celebrity-obsessed Hollywood may not be the best place for kids to grow up.

He says, "We won't stay there forever but it's very difficult to raise normal kids in an environment like that. And I was thinking there's no real role models for girls.

"You've got Britney Spears, you've got Paris Hilton; they're nice enough people but I don't want my daughter to aspire to be like that.

"I'm much more concerned with being a good dad and being there for them and teaching them and hopefully helping them avoid some of the mistakes that I've made."

The pair is said to have enjoyed a secret date last week (beg10Nov08) at the exclusive Shoreditch House members. bar in East London, according to The London Paper.

A source tells the publication, "They definitely looked like a couple - and a good looking one at that! At one point, they were holding hands across the table, but they quickly hid them underneath. They looked really cosy as they dined, gazing into each other's eyes, smiling and laughing. They continued talking and drinking until very late into the evening - there was definitely a buzz in the air."

The pair was previously spotted together two weeks ago at an event in West London, shortly after Miller confirmed her recent split from married actor Balthazar Getty, who she began dating in June.


Lohan's Dad Pulls Out Of Boxing Match
20 November 2008 8:02 AM, PST

Lindsay Lohan's father Michael has been forced to delay his forthcoming charity boxing match until next year, after parole officers pulled him out of the fight.

The bout against computer boss Bob Venero - who pledged $30,000 (GBP20,000) at auction to climb into the ring with Lohan - was scheduled for Monday in Long Island, New York.

But Lohan has been forced to postpone until March, when his parole ends following a two-year jail sentence.

He was charged with driving while intoxicated and aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle after the 2004 arrest, following an attack on his ex-wife Dina's brother.

A spokesperson for the New York State Division of Parole says, "Mr. Lohan was convicted of assault, which is a violent crime, and is currently under parole supervision until February of 2009.

"We do not feel that participating in a violent activity, such as celebrity boxing, whether it is for charity or not, is appropriate for his rehabilitation. It is inappropriate for a person on parole to engage in the same type of behaviour that landed him in prison in the first place."

Lohan tells the New York Daily News he is "very disappointed" but understands the decision.

He adds, "I've been on parole for almost two years now, and being that everything has gone so well, I didn't want to cross the line in any way with them."

And Lohan already has another contender in mind - music producer Mark Ronson, the brother of Lindsay's girlfriend Samantha.

He adds, "After the comments and threats that Mark Ronson made recently, maybe he wants to fight me for charity. I'm definitely willing to step in the ring for three rounds with Mark Ronson."

A source told the National Enquirer, "It may turn out that Mel's friendship with the woman is innocent, but Robyn warned him that if he embarrassed her one more time, their marriage is dead and buried."

20 November 2008 4:07 AM, PST

British movie hunk Rob Pattinson has his Twilight co-star Kristen Stewart to thank for his role in the vampire love story - because she refused to act out love scenes with other contenders for the role.

Stewart performed a pivotal love scene with the four wannabes up for the part of dishy vampire Edward, but there was only one guy for the job as far as she was concerned.

She tells Life + Style magazine, "I was like, 'Are you joking? I can't do the movie unless Rob does it... I basically cast Rob."

And the feeling was mutual for Pattinson: "When I got into the room with Kristen, there was just a certain chemistry. She's basically the reason I did the movie."


Radcliffe Makes Griffiths Feel Like A Grumpy Old Man
20 November 2008 4:07 AM, PST

Starring alongside Daniel Radcliffe on Broadway has left veteran actor Richard Griffiths with a severe case of youth envy.

The portly 61-year-old complains that turning out onstage each night with the 19-year-old Harry Potter heartthrob makes him feel old and unattractive.

And trying to keep up with what interests a teenager leaves him feeling hopelessly out of touch.

He says, "I've no time for youth. It's a source of envy and despair. Daniel comes raving to me about the latest band he's been listening to and I have no idea what he's talking about. It just makes me feel so old. In fact, I shall have him beaten soundly before I go home. I mean he's young, handsome, successful...everything unbearable."

And, when he returns to Britain, Griffiths plans to lobby Prime Minister Gordon Brown for better rights for grumpy old men.

He jokes, "I think everyone over fifty, as part of the NHS, should be issued every week with a wet fish in a plastic bag by the Post Office so that whenever you see anyone young and happy you can hit them as hard as you can across the face. They'll say 'What was that for' and you'll say 'For being so young and handsome and successful."

Aniston 'Laughs Her Rear End Off' At Friends Re-Runs
20 November 2008 4:07 AM, PST

Jennifer Aniston admits she watches herself in re-runs of her hit sitcom Friends - insisting she still finds the show that shot her to fame hilarious.

The actress is a huge fan of the long-running series, which she starred in from 1994 until it ended in 2004, and catches Friends episodes whenever she can.

And despite finding it difficult to remember all of the 236 episodes that appear on TV, the show still makes her laugh - so much so, she argues with anyone who isn't a fan of the series.

She tells New York Times magazine, "There are times I don't even remember that particular show. This is horrible to say, but there are times when I laugh my rear end off.

"And I get in debates with people who are over and say, 'Friends is not my thing'. Excuse you!"

But despite Friends' huge success and popularity, Aniston isn't sure it would work as well in today's TV market.

She adds, "That was a different time. Now TV has too much to do with celebrity. We have reality television, where people try to become celebrities."


Franco Takes On Second Gay Role
20 November 2008 4:07 AM, PST

James Franco didn't hesitate to accept the part of homosexual poet Allen Ginsberg in a forthcoming biopic - his second gay role in as many years.

The actor's sexuality has become a matter of intense speculation since he agreed to play the longtime partner of gay public official Harvey Milk opposite Sean Penn in new movie Milk.

But the star insists he was so honoured to be asked to play Ginsberg in forthcoming film Howl, he didn't care that it could fuel the gossip.

Asked about taking on back-to-back gay roles, Franco tells the New York Daily News: "(It) don't make any difference to me. Ginsberg has been one of my heroes and this movie is just so important.

"I'm playing him when he was in his late twenties, just after he went to Columbia (University)."

Howl will tell the story of the 1957 obscenity trial over one of Ginsberg's most famous poems.

Tom Hanks' wife Rita Wilson is in the middle of a legal battle over the non-payment of a The Beatles poster.

The actress agreed to pay $75,000 (GBP50,000) for a vintage picture of the Fab Four for her husband - provided the seller, Melissa Pearl could provide proof of authenticity, according to papers filed at Los Angeles County Superior Court.

When Pearl was unable to do so, Wilson backed out of the deal, reports celebrity website

Pearl is now demanding payment for the print - as well as an additional $300,000 (GBP200,000) "for what Peal absurdly characterised as her time and trouble to obtain the evidence requested by Wilson that the poster was authentic."

Radcliffe's Broadway Run Struggling To Sell
20 November 2008 4:07 AM, PST

Daniel Radcliffe's naked turn in Broadway play Equus is failing to pull in theatregoers, according to U.S. reports.

The Harry Potter actor opened his run in Peter Schaffer's play at Manhattan's Broadhurst Theatre in September to rave reviews from fans and critics alike.

The 19-year-old received praise from New York's notoriously tough theatrical press for his portrayal of Alan Strang, a 17-year-old schoolboy who is obsessed with horses.

But despite the praise for Radcliffe's take on the role, Equus is struggling to sell tickets, with reports suggesting just half of the theatre's seats are filled for each performance.

The lack of interest is a huge turn-around from the play's run in London's West End, which grossed $3.5 million (GBP2 million) in advanced ticket sales alone before enjoying a sold-out season in 2007.


Garner 'Stalker' Has Mental Disorder, Says Aunt
20 November 2008 4:07 AM, PST

Jennifer Garner's alleged stalker has a mental disorder which doctors have tried to regulate with prescribed medication, according to his aunt.

The Alias star was granted a temporary restraining order against Steven Burky on 7 November after she submitted to the Los Angeles Superior Court an alarming declaration detailing Burky's behaviour.

In the document, the actress alleged that "Mr Burky has been stalking and harassing me," sending "packages and letters containing delusional and paranoid thoughts and following me around the country... his obsessive and harassing behaviour has escalated to the point of becoming dangerous and threatening."

Burky first initiated contact with Garner in 2002, when he disguised himself as a college student in Ohio and then as a punk rocker at a record store in Los Angeles in order to meet her, according to a report in the New York Daily News.

He even sent an email to a member of Garner's film crew in February, begging that the star be warned about a vision he had in which she would be persecuted by a mob.

But according to his aunt Maxine Burky, the 36-year-old's obsession is the result of a psychological condition.

She tells the New York Daily News, "He does have a mental disorder. He's supposed to be taking medication. It's been an infatuation for many years. He's not dangerous."

Maxine insists that the Burky family sympathises with Garner: "Something had to be done. I understand a stalker can ruin someone's life."

In the temporary restraining order, a judge ruled that Burky must stay 100 yards (300 feet/91 metres) from Garner, her husband Ben Affleck and their daughter Violet.

A hearing has been scheduled for Thursday to make the order permanent, but Burky will not be in court as he is reportedly in a psychiatric ward.

Alan Rickman was left sickened and saddened by the sex scenes he had to perform in new movie Nobel Son - because he felt sorry for the actresses he had to pretend to make love to.

The British star plays a Nobel Prize-winning teacher who has sex with his graduate students, and he insists there was nothing glamorous about the love scenes.

He tells WENN, "You show up at nine in the morning and you shake the poor woman's hand: "Hi, nice to meet you," and then you get at it on the desk.

"It's such a bizarre thing to do. You just move on as quickly as possible. I felt sorry for those women in the sex scenes."

Rich fans of soccer superstar David Beckham have been flooding a British businessman with offers to buy the sports superstar's childhood home.

A decision on who gets the property will be decided next week (begs24Nov08).

Angelina Jolie's estranged father Jon Voight is hoping to meet his grandchildren over the festive period - after revealing he still hasn't met his daughter's twins since they were born in July.

The Deliverance star and his Oscar-winning daughter were estranged for years following Voight's decision to go public with his concerns for the actress' mental health.

And although the pair allegedly reconciled recently after six years of not speaking, Voight confesses he still hasn't been able to see the latest additions to Jolie's family with actor Brad Pitt: Knox and Vivienne.

When asked by America's Ok! Magazine if he plans to see the twins at Christmas, "The twins! Holy smokes... I'm hoping, so we'll see."

But despite their strained relationship, Voight is proud of his daughter's maternal achievements - because she is happier than ever with her bustling brood of six kids.

He adds, "I saw her here before the twins came, and she was so happy. I've never seen her that happy. And she's got this beautiful film with Clint (Eastwood) out, so there's going to be a lot of energy around that one as well."


Pitt Refuses To Show Off His 'Personal And Special' Tattoos
19 November 2008 11:08 PM, PST

Brad Pitt was left squirming during a recent taping of Oprah Winfrey's talk show when a fan insisted on chatting to him about his tattoos.

The movie hunk was on the show promoting his new film The Curious Case of Benjamin Button with co-star Cate Blanchett when a devotee from Ontario, California, called Christina phoned to ask him to explain his skin art.

She asked, "I'm very interested in knowing the meaning of especially the iceman and the new one that you have of the Daniel Pearl quote."

And fun-loving Blanchett quipped, "And will you show them to us?" as nervous Pitt blushed and tried to avoid the question.

He refused to show off his tattoos, but offered, "If you have a partner... it's a great thing to do together, and it becomes personal and special in its own right and I'd rather just leave it at that."

But Oprah wasn't about to let the topic lie, asking the fan, "What are you talking about?" - to which the knowledgeable caller started describing her hero's skin art.

Christina said, "I just wanna know what was the idea behind it... I know you've got one on your tummy, don't make me go there!"

Gracious Pitt chuckled and said, "Thank you for the question, I'm sorry I can't help you out anymore than that."


Paltrow Begs Forgiveness Over Real Fur Faux Pas
19 November 2008 11:08 PM, PST

Gwyneth Paltrow is trying to get back in animal rights activists' good books - by apologising to the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals' vice president for endorsing a collection of luxury fur goods.

The actress came under fire from PETA and animal rights campaigners after she appeared in Italian designer Tod's advertising campaign draped in fox fur and wearing fur-lined boots.

A spokesperson said at the time that they had wrote to the star many times about the treatment of animals used for fur, but their contact had been rebuffed.

But the 35-year-old, who has previously won praise for her and husband Chris Martin's green credentials, made amends for her fashion faux pas by telling PETA vice president Dan Mathews she didn't realised the fur was real.

Mathews tells the star approached him at the Fontainebleau Hotel opening party in Miami, Florida at the weekend (15/16Nov08) to give her side of the story.

He reveals, "(Paltrow said), That was awkward, and I'm glad you asked, because I do not wear fur at all.

"It was a daylong photo shoot on a boat near Capri, and there were all sorts of poses with all kinds of clothes - none with fur. During one set-up, a stylist came up from behind and draped a stole around my shoulder.

"I didn't pay much attention to it, and when I noticed it was fur, I assumed it was fake fur, but did not ask, so it's my fault. I know it's not a great excuse, but I hope you and your members understand."

The actress, who studied to become a fitness trainer at college, has put her nutritional knowledge to good use and opted for a new all-fish diet - and she admits it's already paying off.

She reveals, "I love it... It really has effected my body... It takes a lot for the body to process red meat and I've never been a fan of chickens."

19 November 2008 5:20 PM, PST

John Travolta is finally a superstar in his own household, after landing a movie role alongside teen superstar Miley Cyrus.

The pair both lend their voices to new animated film Bolt, and even sing a duet for the soundtrack together - something that earned the Saturday Night Fever star extra cool points from his children with Kelly Preston; Jett, 16 and Ella, eight.

He says, "I was so popular when I got home after they had gotten the news that I sang with Miley.

"Doing a movie with her was big enough news. But the singing and dancing with her was a whole other thing. So I'm finally getting some attention from my kids."

Parenting Comes First For Witherspoon And Phillippe
19 November 2008 5:20 PM, PST

Reese Witherspoon has heaped praise on her ex-husband Ryan Phillippe - because he's a great dad.

The actress split from Phillippe in 2007 but admits the former couple remains civil for the sake of their children Ava and Deacon.

And the 32-year-old Vanity Fair star has nothing but admiration for her ex's parenting skills.

She tells Parade magazine, "My ex-husband is very involved in raising our beautiful children. We're very lucky because we both grew up in working families in middle America. We're on the same page that way.

"When we're with our children, we're very good about checking ourselves. I'm teaching the children what we were taught growing up - a real set of rules, discipline and love."


Hilton's Friends Confirm Split
19 November 2008 5:20 PM, PST

Friends close to Paris Hilton have confirmed she and boyfriend Benji Madden have split after a nine-month romance.

The couple split at the beginning of the week after Hilton was snapped partying with ex-boyfriend Stavros Niarchos in Miami, Florida.

A source close to Hilton tells, "She is saddened by the break-up but they're just too different and they wanted different things in life. He was loyal and sweet but it was time to take a break."

But the Hilton contact denies reports the socialite dumped Madden to reconcile with Niarchos: "In no way are they romantic, nor do they want to get back together."

And Vanessa Fontana, a contestant on Hilton's new U.S. reality show Bff, has also confirmed the sad news.

She tells Life + Style magazine, "Sadly, it's true. Paris and Benji have split. I love Paris, and I just want her to be happy. I think that they'll be better as friends.

"Nobody else is involved. Paris and Benji were loyal and faithful to each other. I was with Paris in Miami, and Stavros came over to our table, and the two of them talked for literally two minutes. It was a friendly conversation. They definitely did not hook up."
