Wedding bells are not on the horizon for Angelina Jolie. The Oscar-winner recently spoke to Vanity Fair about her upcoming directorial debut, but took the time to dispel any rumors that she is tying the knot with longtime partner Brad Pitt. “There’s no secret wedding,” she bluntly told VF contributing editor Rich Cohen, “I’m not pregnant, I’m not adopting at the moment.” Once she got that out of the way, Angie hunkered down to discuss work on her passion project, Land of Blood and Honey, for which she’s not only behind the camera but also behind the pen. “I had the flu,” she said about how she came to write the screenplay. “I had to be quarantined from the children for two days. I was in the attic of a house in France…So I started writing.” She then sent a copy of the script to Brad for a second opinion. “He called and said, ‘You know, honey, it’s not that bad.’”Jeez Brad, easy on the enthusiasm!
She admits that the experience has been really rather scary, making her feel more vulnerable than ever before. “I’ve never felt more exposed. My whole career, I’ve hidden behind other people’s words,” she said. “Now it’s me talking. You feel ridiculous when you get something wrong.” The film’s controversial plot centers around the Bosnian War in the early 90s. But she feels that she’s up to tackling the tricky subject matter. “It was something I didn’t trust out of my hands. So by default I ended up putting myself in as director.” She shot the film on location in Serbia last October, making sure that locals gave their seal of approval. “[I showed the script to] people of Serbian and Bosnian nationality who’d been through the war. I was gauging the accuracy…. If they said no, I wouldn’t have done it.” The film is set to open wide on December 23rd of this year, and the latest edition of Vanity Fair will hit news stands on September 1st.
On the latest episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashains Kris Humphries was shocked -shocked!- to learn that his fiancee Kim Kardashian had already been been married once before. Which is weird because he could have learned this by doing a ten-second scan of his wife-to-be’s Wikipedia page. Yes, despite all the hype around Kim’s “big day”, people seem to forget that this ain’t her first trip down the aisle. In 2000 she tied the knot with record producer Damon Thomas, which ended in divorce four years later. But apparently no one told Kris about this until after the couple were already engaged. One of Kim’s relatives evidently let it slip during a Kardashian family vacation in Bora Bora.
“You were really married? You guys are serious?” gasped a visibly shaken Humphries as they sat around the fancy dinner table. The fellow Kardashian men tried to cheer him up, with some attempts more successful than others. “Kim wasn’t really married,” Rob Kardashian offered confusingly, while Scott Disick lived up to his mega-douche title by saying, “You really thought that you were going to the first?” Charming. Kris was pretty bummed out, moaning “I didn’t see that coming, that hit me like a ton of bricks. What else will Kim break to me?” But as we all know now, he got over it and the two lived happily ever after in the land of Donk.
What we wanna know is, how did this not come up before? Come on guys, communication is key to any relationship. Maybe the K-Kult were keeping the factoid hidden until they could spring it on him while the cameras were rolling. Ratings are ratings, y’all. But seriously, we thought that knowledge of Kim’s previous marriage was just kinda…out there. So we’re not sure who to be mad at in this sitch. Let this be a lesson to couples everywhere: always remember to Google your significant other before you pop the question.
Look out Will and Jada, your days as Hollywood’s coolest parents are numbered! While strolling the red carpet at the VMA’s last night Beyonce announced her latest collaboration with husband Jay-Z: a child! The news is not totally unexpected, as Bebe had hinted that she wanted a baby by the age of thirty. Considering she turns the big 3-0 on Sunday, we’d say her timing is right on! In honor of the happy news, we’d like to present the fab ‘n’ fierce twosome with own lil gift: a gallery of their cutest couple-y moments. This is heirloom material, you guys. Enjoy all of their most adorable pics below!
While we on the East Coast were getting pummeled into submission by mother nature, Gwen Stefani took advantage of the beautiful California weather this weekend visited the beach with her family. And of course for us, that translates to one thing: bikini pics. The 41-year old rocker and mother of two (!) showed off her fantastic and flawless abs in a tiny bikini top while holding hands with husband Gavin Rossdale. And of course her cuties Kingston and Zuma Rossdale were on hand to pump up the adorability factor. Too bad Gavin brought it right back down again with his Steven Seagal ponytail. Check out the gallery below for more fun in the sun!
Who hasn’t been madly in love with Katie Holmes at some point in their lives? Ever since lighting up the small screen as Joey on Dawson’s Creek, Katie has staked a claim on the heart of our inner teenager and never given it up. She remains the ultimate girl next door, even though she’s currently married to the creepy boy next door who won’t shut up about aliens. We’ve watched her go from cute apple-cheeked creek dweller, to willowy brunette bombshell and Hollywood A-lister. In honor of her staring role in Guillermo del Toro‘s latest horror flick Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark, let’s take a trip down to Capeside and look back on her hottest looks. Enjoy!
We admit that on the surface, a video of Vinny Guadagnino dancing with children doesn’t sound all that interesting. But that’s where you’re wrong. So very very wrong. For some reason, this clip of the Jersey Shore star showing off his old-man-at-a-wedding dance moves has us completely under its spell. Take a hike, OK Go. There’s a new music video king in town! The masterpiece starts with Vinny asleep on the couch, before he wakes up and presses play on Foster The People‘s insanely catchy ‘Pumped Up Kicks’. His body soon starts to succumb to the beats, while children pop out of nowhere to join in. From then on it’s four-and-a-half minutes of one-take glory destined to go viral. The zillion times we’ve watched it so far will make sure of that. Vinny is officially the coolest baby sitter of all time.
Jason Bateman‘s family is getting a little bigger, as it’s been revealed that The Change-Up star is expecting a second daughter with wife of ten years, Amanda Anka. The couple had their first child, Francesca Nora Bateman, in 2006. Amanda’s father, legendary singer-songwriter Paul Anka took to Entertainment Tonight Canada to share the good news with the world. “I’m going to be a grandfather again,” he said proudly. He also confirmed that the little bundle will be “another baby girl.” We send our best wishes to the happy (and expanding) family! Hey Jason, you know what’s the best way to welcome a newborn into the world? With an Arrested Development movie. Just sayin…
Some people want to raise their kids Catholic, others wish to raise them Jewish. But Justin Bieber knows for sure that he wants to raise his offspring Canadian. Yes, like a shaggy headed salmon returning upstream, the teen superstar has told TMZ that he eventually wants to settle down in his native Canada to raise his children. “I think it would be cool to get a condo out here [in LA],” he admitted. “But eventually I’m going to want to move back to Canada and raise my family up there. I’m Canadian and I want my kids to be Canadian, eh!” We’re sure that Canadian immigration is about to get flooded with visa applications from teenage girls worldwide. But most importantly, what does Selena Gomez think about all this!
Let’s face it: we wouldn’t be totally shocked by the existence of a Rihanna sex-tape. We’ve seen the pix from her recent concerts, and we can’t imagine the full on deed could be much worse. The gal ain’t afraid to be risque. Just click the “Rihanna” tag on this post and you’ll get all the evidence you need. But we raise our eyebrows at claims that Hustler productions have a Riri sex tape in their grubby hands. We feel like she’d be better at keeping it from those guys.
“Hustler are in possession of the Rihanna and J-Cole tape,” said a rep for the porn factory. J-Cole was the opening act for Rihanna on her recent Loud tour. “We have seen it and we do not know what we are going to do with it yet,” they continued. Don’t know what you’re going to do with it yet!? If they actually had something they would have splashed it all over the top magazine rack of every 7-11 in town! Rihanna’s peeps are predictably denying the story. “Rihanna is surprised because there is no sex tape,” a source told RadarOnline. That you know of they added in their minds before laughing to themselves.
Even though their reps and family denied such reports, these pesky rumors of trouble inWill Smith‘s marriage to Jada Pinkett Smith just won’t stop. And frankly, they just get more and more bizarre. After starting the whole controversy yesterday, In Touch Magazine is now saying that Jada was cheating on The Fresh Prince with her HawthoRNe costar, Marc Anthony! Say what!? According to the magazine, Will suspected that his wife was gettin’ jiggy with J-Lo‘s ex, so he secretly flew home early from a film shoot a few weeks back. Allegedly he walked in and indeed found his wife with Marc, which caused him to flee the house in tears.
Now if you ask us, that’s the first clue that this report is BS: Big Willie would NEVER just run away crying. Come on In Touch, haven’t you ever seen Independence Day!? The couple’s PR rep issued a statement yesterday saying that Jada had never been unfaithful to Will, and took care to mention Marc Anthony specifically in their denial. Despite this, TMZ is reporting that although the couple haven’t technically split, they’re having serious problems. A source close to the Smith’s say that they have been living separate lives for several months now, and say that a divorce is “definitely a possibility.”
