Bonham Carter, Burton Have Son

Actress Helena Bonham Carter and director Tim Burton welcomed their first child last week, a boy whom they have not yet named. The two met on the set of the remake Planet of the Apes and live in adjoining houses in north London. “I don’t know if we’ll marry,” the magazine Radio Times quoted Bonham Carter as saying. “I find it romantic bearing his illegitimate child and living next door.” Might be her kinda romantic but reeks of commitment phobia doesn?t it?

Foley denies infidelity

All round good guy Scott Foley has been telling anyone that will listen that all those rumors of infidelity causing his divorce from Alias star Jennifer Garner are untrue. “Nobody else was involved,” Foley told TV Guide US. “Jennifer became a huge celebrity. She became a huge star, and she deserved everything she got. There was no other relationship, there was no infidelity, nothing. People get divorced, you know?” Foley, 31, recently moved from Los Angeles to New York to prepare for a new play, The Violet Hour says he will be turning his back on fame and fortune and that he is no longer interested in stardom. “I’ve seen the demands that it requires, and I don’t have the patience for that. If it comes along, it comes along,” Foley says. Garner filed for divorce earlier this year, citing ?irreconcilable differences?. The couple met when they both starred in TV series Felicity, in 1998 and were married in October 2000. Nice to see no hard feelings there Scott!

Gold Logie Baby

Gold Logie winning actress Lisa McCune, 32 and her husband Tim Disney, 32 also had their second child last week. Baby Oliver is the couple?s second son.

Hugh wows ’em on Broadway

Speaking of great blokes, Aussie spunk Hugh Jackman showed he can sing, dance and look good all at once in the Broadway show of The Boy from Oz. The critics, while less than complimentary about the show itself, are singing Jackman?s praises, calling him ?Broadway’s hottest star in decades?. The show has been packing ?em in, pulling in the crowds like World Cup rugby!

A Hollywood?s who?s who packed the show?s opening night at New York’s Imperial Theatre, including Candice Bergen, Rod Stewart, Sarah Jessica Parker, Calvin Klein, and Rosie O’Donnell. Also in attendance was the family of Peter Allen, the original boy from Oz, who traveled from Down Under to witness the performance first hand. “Hugh had everything down, exactly Peter,” said Allen’s sister Lynne Smith, 55, who traveled from Sydney for the premiere. “He had the hands, the expressions, everything. We loved it and we are very proud and thrilled.”

As we have come to expect from the dashing star, his biggest fan is his wife, Deborah-Lee Furness. ?Everyone keeps telling me how amazing they think he is, and I sit in the audience, I’ve seen it about six times, and he blows me away,” she said. Awww. So great to see she still thinks her husband is amazing!
