Hayden Panettiere and boxer Wladimir Klitschko made their first red carpet appearance together this weekend in Hamburg, Germany, a month after they were spotted smooching in Miami. Things must be getting serious if Hayden’s making it a public affair—she’s admitted that the press put stress on her earlier romances with Heroes co-star Milo Ventimiglia and British TV host Steve Jones. “They destroy [relationships]. The paparazzi and the public,” she told Company magazine last year. “The public wants to read about your personal life, and the paparazzi give it to them by nosing into your personal life and saying things that are just not true and horrible.” In that case, we’ll just stick with a fact—like previous partners Ventimiglia, Jones and ex-bf entrepeneur Harry Morton, Klitschko is more than ten years older than the 20-year-old actress (he’s also a foot and a half taller than her).

Ring the alarms, people! John Mayer – that self-absorbed masturbation machine we all love to hate – escorted Taylor Swift out to dinner in Nashville this week. Now, sure, the pair was “with a big group,” said a source, and “just seemed to be friends.” But we all know John is a horny sex machine ready to f*ck whatever walks in front of him (er, at least, this is how we like to imagine him in the hopes that we run into him on the street someday), and we suspect that he might be interested in wrapping those tattooed arms around Taylor and sucking the purity out of her like Edward Cullen going after a mountain lion.
Think we’re freaking out over nothing? Think again, friends. The pair has gushed about each other on Twitter, performed together in concert, and collaborated on a John’s song “Half Of My Heart.” And the Internet agrees with us – google “Taylor Swift John Mayer” and pages of results pop up claiming a Mayer-Swift affair. Sure, this relationship may only exist in our dreams right now, but trust us – we know our Mayer. He can’t resist a hot young thing with talent, and frankly, we hope she goes for it. She’s gotta spice up that good girl image somehow! [Photo: GettyImages]
Gerard Butler may canoodle on the red carpet with Jennifer Aniston and go to dinner with Jessica Simpson, but he isn’t dating either of them—at least not exclusively. Paparazzi saw the 300 star walk up to a violinist on the street in Venice Beach last night, make out with the woman, and then walk away with a wave (TMZ has the video). Honestly, with superstar studs like Butler, we’re surprised they aren’t spotted taking walk-by smooches more often, but this will probably put the kibosh on any rumors that Butler and his Bounty Hunter co-star are doing more than posing for steamy photos together.
Then again, it’s not like tabloids are going to run out of reasons (or, judging from his amorous antics, opportunities) to attach Butler to as many ladies as they can. The actor will play Scottish poet Robert Burns in an upcoming biopic, and the director promises to deliver a lot more than solilquoies. “Gerard and I are both totally committed to the film,” Vadim Jean told the Sunday Mail. “There’s plenty of sex and nude scenes in it. He was a notorious rake of his time. We are not whitewashing Burns by any means.” Wait, who’s the rake again—Butler or Burns? By the time this film comes out, we may have seen everything Butler has to show anyway.

Jennifer Aniston and Gerard Butler looked thisclose at tonight’s Golden Globes. Sure, champagne can make even mortal enemies canoodle, but these two seemed awfully touchy-feely, both while sitting together during the ceremony and backstage in the press room (pics below). While they may just be trying to build buzz for their upcoming flick The Bounty Hunter, we kinda like seeing Jen let down her guard a bit and get giggly with her hunky co-star. Did you see how much leg she was flaunting tonight? Surely she was showing off for someone special, right? [Photo: NBC]
Forget you, Star. Jessica Simpson will not let herself be known as Mistress No. Whatever-teen. The singer denies the gossip rag’s cover story that she traded phone numbers with an obviously up-for-it Tiger Woods near the end of her time with Tony Romo. “Can’t believe that I’m on the cover of star magazine with Tiger Woods, what a JOKE!” she tweeted. “‘The Shocking Inside Story’ is (insert drumroll) A LIE!” But…but…how can you deny that incontrovertible evidence on the cover? His hand is on her back! “Touchy Feely”!
Simpson notably has not used her Twitter to douse the fire that is her smoking hot alleged affair with aging alterna-rocker Billy Corgan of the Smashing Pumpkins. OK! is ecstatic about the union, claiming Corgan “is very caught up in Jessica’s mystique” (who isn’t?) and that Simpson wants to bear his children (let’s hope the ghost of rival Kurt Cobain hears this—he could use the laugh). In Touch is more tentative, saying they’re “not exclusive” and quoting an irate Tila Tequila, who once dallied with Corgan herself. “I think Jessica Simpson is a waste of space. She can’t even put two and two together. She doesn’t show any female empowerment. She gets screwed over by her ex-boyfriends because she is all clingy. She should stop being so weak and stand up for yourself.” We’ll let you judge the degree of irony here.

Never in a million years would our grunge-loving high school selves have imagined that someone as artistic and anti-everything-mainstream as Smashing Pumpkins singer Billy Corgan would become just another dirty old man who likes to bang starlets. Most recently Corgan has found his E-harmonious 29 dimensions of compatibility with Jessica Simpson. The man who once wrote a song called “F*ck You (An Ode To No One)” paired with Miss Chicken of the Sea is beyond weird, but lately the two have been seen together hanging out in New York over the past several days, and a source says that Jess is “smitten.”
Corgan is notoriously temperamental, or at least he’s made out to be, and was been linked to Courtney Love a few times in the past. All things considered, the coupling with Simpson is a surprising one, although he’s been making surprising decisions a lot of late, ever since he dated Tila Tequila earlier in the year. As a preacher’s kid, Simpson apparently finds Corgan to be a spiritual match, tweeting, “My friend, Billy Corgan, has a pure and enlightening outlook on faith. Go to his new website.” Maybe they’ll prove the old adage we learned in church that friends who pray together, stay together. [Photos: GettyImages]
Marilyn Manson revealed he’s back with girlfriend Evan Rachel Wood in a new interview with Metal Hammer magazine. The Antichrist Superstar cryptically credits a journey of self-discovery for their reunion. “Sometimes you feel awkward being what you’re best at, you feel like you have to be something new. But I think that a lot of people will agree that me being me at my best [is what] I need to be. I think that really paid off because I’m back with Evan, that’s kind of breaking news, you can be the first one to say that.” Score one for Metal Hammer.
No word yet on whether they patched things up before or after Manson filmed his latest video, in which he beats and murders a woman that looks eerily like Wood. ” I have fantasies every day about smashing her skull in with a sledgehammer,” the shock rocker told Spin in June, around the time Wood was allegedly making out with her Once & Again on-screen brother Shane West. Manson and Wood, who started dating in 2006 when Manson was married to Dita Von Teese and Wood was only 19, split late last year, though rumors of them hooking up had occasionally surfaced since. Can’t wait till these two grace the red carpet again, can you?

Don’t get too close to someone at an Us party—you just know somebody’s watching! The magazine reports that Hills star Audrina Patridge was making eyes at Glee stud Mark Salling at their Hot Hollywood party, held at club Voyeur in LA. According to the mag, the pair were “joined at the hip,” “talking for 45 minutes” before leaving at the same time—in separate cars, but “their cars following one another, heading out into the night together.” You know what that means, right? Those cars were probably knocking boots.
Plenty of other celebs risked such treatment by their hosts, including Kristin Cavallari, Stephanie Pratt, Whitney Port, Eva Amurri, Eliza Dushku, LaToya Jackson and American Idol buds Kris Allen & Adam Lambert. Olivia Wilde and Levi Johnston had especially busy nights, attending both this event and GQ’s Men Of The Year party. Hey, anybody know if their cars were next to each other? Hmm?

Behold: Tristan Wilds, the man people are saying is now dating Rihanna. The actor – who is known for his work on “The Wire” and “90210″ – apparently showed up at a party the singer held in Los Angeles this past weekend. “No one knew why Tristan was there initially, because it was not an industry party — it was very intimate,” a source told the NY Daily News. “But everyone quickly realized they weren’t meeting for the first time, because they were openly affectionate for everyone to see.”
The insider adds, “She likes him a lot, and it shows. From the moment he walked into her party, Rihanna lit up.” We’d be cooing over this news if it wasn’t for Rihanna herself, who has reportedly denied that she’s dating anyone - ANYONE – at all. What do you think – is Tristan her new man – or a figment of the web’s imagination? [Photos: GettyImages]
