Britney pays $150,000 for Hen’s party!

That’ll be some party!
Britney Spears is forking out ludicrous amounts for a 72 hour hen?s party. She is reportedly paying $150,000 to convert her Malibu mansion into a ?chick den? for eight of her closest girlfriends. There will be enough alcohol to ensure the girls don?t need to leave her pad, as well as movies, pampering and maybe even a stripper. Sources say, “She doesn’t really want the attention of going out on the town, so she has opted to have a party at home, but it won’t be your average girls’ night in.? It better not be for $150,000! Meanwhile, her hubby-to-be, Kevin Federline, will be enjoying his buck?s night in Las Vegas. He and seven mates will be sent out there with a briefcase full of cash to gamble the weekend away. “Britney really has pulled out all the stops, she wants both herself and Kevin to have stag and hen weekends they will remember forever,” said a friend. The pair will marry in Santa Barbara, 90 miles north of LA at the Bacara Resort and Spa.

Doesn’t look old to me…
Depp likes getting old
Unlike most Hollywood stars, Johnny Depp has actually admitted he enjoys aging. The 41-year-old plays the author of Peter Pan in his latest flick Finding Neverland. At the Venice Film Festival last week, he was asked by reporters whether Peter Pan?s ability to never grow old made him wish for the same power. “Nowadays, it’s all a question of surgery, isn’t it?” he joked. “No, of course the notion is beautiful ? the idea of staying a boy or a child forever. But I think you can. I’ve known plenty of people in their later years who were like little kids, had the energy of little children, the curiosity and fascination,” he said. “But I think it’s great fun growing old. I think it’s great.” Smart and spunky? Say it isn?t so!

Healthy as can be!
Kidman denies illness rumours
Nicole Kidman has denied rumours that she is suffering from the bone disease osteoporosis. The five foot ten actress has always fought scrutiny over her thin frame, but after hearing she was reportedly in hospital having test, she decided to fight back. “I’ve always been thin,” she added. “Yet the same story keeps getting more and more absurd. It’s amusing that, with everything else that’s going on in the world, people are concerned about my weight.? She told the London Daily Mail, ?Apparently I’m having tests in hospital, but I laughed because no one told me… I haven’t had tests for anything. The only thing I’ve been testing is how to twitch my nose for Bewitched.” The Aussie star is currently in rehearsals for the movie remake of the cult 60?s TV comedy series. She has also spoken out over Lauren Bacall?s proclamation that Kidman is not an acting legend. During a TV interview, she said “I was thrilled that she dismissed the legend stuff. To put me into a category I don’t belong burdens me with responsibility I don’t want. I telephoned Lauren and thanked her for saying that. She always calls it like it is and that’s a reality check I adore.” So modest.
