Orlando Bloom to star as James Bond

Orlando Bloom is set to play James Bond, but not as the much anticipated Pierce Brosnan replacement. He will be playing Young 007 in a new movie to be set in the 1930s. the film is based on new novel Silverfin and will follow the young Bond from school in Eton, England to his uncle?s house in the west Highlands. Apparently Orlando is thrilled to be in negotiations for the film. “I love the idea, in principle, as he can be far more adventurous and do more stunts. This is as near as I think I will get to playing the grown up James for the next 20 years.” Meanwhile, speculation is still rife over who will take over Brosnan?s role as grown up Bond. Current favourites are Aussie actor Julian McMahon and Brits Clive Owen and Gerard Butler.

Is Britney Pregnant??
Is she pregnant? The gossip mags seem to think so: US Star magazine published on Friday that ?Britney Spears and her husband of 7 months, Kevin Federline, are expecting a baby, Star can exclusively and definitely reveal. But more recent reports say her publicist says she?s not expecting. She has definitely grown a curvier body since her marriage to Kevin, and everyone is speculating on the reason. US Weekly says Spears was recently seen at Starbucks gobbling a roast beef sandwich but avoiding coffee and cigarettes, a sign she was pregnant. Life & Style Magazine says Spears isn?t pregnant and her curvier body is due to her mum’s home cooking. People magazine have a photograph special, and suggest she has been enjoying the LA restaurants, thus the reason for her baby-esque curves. Hmmm time will tell…

Jennifer files for Divorce
It?s all over, the golden couple of Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt have finished. Jennifer filed divorce papers from Brad in Los Angeles Superior Court citing “irreconcilable differences”. They haven?t yet decided how they?re going to spit their assets including their $17 million Beverly Hills mansion and their production company Plan B. Jennifer?s official court papers say that “earnings and accumulations of Petitioner (Aniston) from and after the date of separation be confirmed to [her]” and notes that the couple shares additional “property assets and obligations,” the value of which have yet to be determined. She has also requested her legal name be restored to Jennifer Joanna Aniston, although she never went by the name of Jennifer Pitt in her professional career.
