Another day, another viral Ben Affleck interview.
Johnny won’t ruin Vanessa’s good name
Flat note Johnny DeppJohnny Depp says he would never ask his Vanessa Paradis to marry him as it would ruin her ‘perfect name’. He said he often thought about proposing to the mother of his two children, but the name issue had held him back. “It’s so perfect and so beautiful,” Johnny said. “It would be a drag to stick her with Paradis-Depp. It’s like a flat note.” But he said he would not hesitate if she was to propose to him: “She’s the woman of my life. I would do it in a second.” Oh what a guy – so talented and thoughtful too! And so old fashioned. Not every bride chooses to ditch her surname, Johnny.
She’ll always be J-LoLopez regrets calling herself J-Lo
Jennifer Lopez has ‘fessed up that she regrets giving herself the name J-Lo. She made the admission during an interview for the US show Inside the Actor’s Studio. The New York Post reports that Lopez was not shy about stating her favourite swear words (here’s a hint, it rhymes with bucking door) even though her mum was sitting in the front row. She referred to Guadalupe Lopez as “my mom, the millionaire” – a reference to her million dollar jackpot win on the dreaded poker machines at an Atlantic City casino earlier this month. When host James Lipton asked J-Lo: “If heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive?” She replied: “‘Nice going, you did your best,” and “There are no paparazzi here.” Nice to see that is all she is worried about in heaven!
Glowing with love, Kate MossKate Moss’ secret love
Rumour has it Kate Moss has fallen in love with hunky British actor Daniel Craig. Kate, 30, and the Tomb Raider star have been dating for a month after meeting through mutual friends. Kate is said by pals to be “besotted” with Daniel, 35, who starred opposite Gwyneth Paltrow in last year’s movie Sylvia. And the multi-millionaire cover girl has told friends the romance is serious. “It was love at first sight for Kate,” said a pal last week. “Daniel is bright, charming and leads a very low-key life – just what Kate’s looking for at the moment.” The friend said: “It is serious, and they both know it. Kate doesn’t want anything to rock the boat. She is blown away by him.” The friend added: “Both he and Kate want to keep things low-key. “But the sexual chemistry between them is so potent that you’d be blind not to see it. Some things you just can’t keep quiet.” The pair met after Daniel, who has an 11-year old daughter from a brief marriage in his 20s, starred with Kate’s pal Rhys Ifans, 37, in the new film Enduring Love. The news is not good for Kate’s estranged partner Jefferson Hack, father of her toddler daughter Lila Grace. He still had hopes of reviving their four-year relationship. Magazine boss Hack, 31, moved out of their London home two weeks ago, but the couple reportedly remain “good mates”.
Daryl HannahPolice quiz Daryl Hannah over Kill Bill poses
Actress Daryl Hannah has been questioned by police after she struck kung fu poses at the LA premiere of Kill Bill: Vol 2. The actress, who reportedly gets nervous when meeting the press at glitzy events, decided to hide behind her assassin character Elle Driver. She told Teen Hollywood: “I usually just race into theatres at premieres. But this time I thought I would walk in like Elle with her cocky attitude and stuff. So I went through the press line and I was standing on my car and doing kung fu and giving them the finger or whatever. Then when I came out of the theatre, there were five policemen waiting for me, wanting me to take a breathalyser test.” Hannah said they talked to her for a minute or so before letting her go: “They said: ‘Well, you seem okay.’ They couldn’t seem to understand that I was just acting. It was weird.” Only in Hollywood!
J.Lo to sue
Looks like Jenny from the Block will be making an appearance in court in the near future ? she?s started legal proceedings against her former manager, Benny Medina. The actress/singer/model/entertainer is seeking millions of dollars in back-commissions claiming her former manager negotiated deals on her behalf without a license. This is a violation of the Californian Talent Agency Act, and if Medina is found guilty, it will void any contracts he negotiated for her and therefore she shouldn?t have had to pay him any commission. Phew!
Medina is not taking this lying down, hitting back at Ms Lopez by issuing the following statement “The accusation that I misappropriated money from Jennifer Lopez is both untrue and offensive… Lopez, by making false allegations against me, is now trying to add me to the long list of people whom she has used and discarded after she took from them all she could get.” He continued, “It is unfortunate that Ms. Lopez is using a Labor Commission suit as a means of mitigating her outstanding financial contractual obligations to my company and me… I look forward to the opportunity to have the world come to know the real Jennifer Lopez. I will defend myself against these lies and will collect from her every dollar for which I am owed.” Lopez is also seeking to dissolve any remaining partnerships with Medina and Handprint Entertainment. Owweee sounds like J.Lo may have bitten off more than she can chew this time!
Ed and Christy expecting?
First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes Ed Burns and Christy Turlington with a baby carriage? The gorgeous couple, who wed last month in San Francisco, after an extended courtship are apparently ?with child?. The fab two were spotted at birthing classes in New York. And with a new addition to the family on the horizon, the Burn-Turlington household are no doubt occupied with thoughts of baby names, and suitable godparents for the little one. There?s no shortage of divine celebrities amongst the couple?s inner circle. Their recent nuptials included A-list invitees like Sting and wife Trudi Styler, Vin Diesel and sexy Irish rocker Bono, who reportedly filled in for Turlington?s dad on march down the aisle – her father having passed away from lung cancer two years ago. Wonder if the U2 frontman will be given a guernsey as the baby’s godfather too?
Maguire says Spider-Man 2 ‘better’
Sensational Spider-man Tobey Maguire has reportedly revealed that the forthcoming spidey sequel is ?better? than the original. “I’m really happy with it … It’s going to be better than the first one. The story is a lot better,” he said last week from LA during a press conference for his new film Seabiscuit. Maguire, who shot to fame last year playing the superhero, said filming on the sequel was about two-thirds complete. In the sequel, Maguire’s character, Peter Parker, enrols as a university student, but two new villains, Dr Octopus and the Lizard, are hell bent on his destruction. The next arachnid installment is due to be released in the US in June 2004. Guess that puts pay to those nasty rumours doing the rounds that Maguire wasn?t going to be fit enough to be Spiderman again!
Demi?s boyfriend threatens to sue
BUSTED big time! Ashton Kutcher is threatening to sue the London Evening Standard for making up a quote about how much he likes “f***ing” current girlfriend, and mother of three,Demi Moore. The quote in question went something like this, Moore “was the hottest actress in Hollywood when I was growing up. I was in love with her when I was 10. Now it’s great, I’m (bleeping) her.” But the young star of Dude where?s my car? and That 70?s Show wants the paper to publish a retraction and issue an apology for publishing the fabricated interview in its July 7 issue – or suffer the legal consequences. “If the Evening Standard fails to provide Mr. Kutcher with an appropriate retraction and apology, he will evaluate all of his legal options,” “This is an example of some of the outrageous conduct that is committed by the media,” said publicist Matt Labov. “It is obvious that the Evening Standard wanted to publish attention-getting quotes from Mr. Kutcher about the relationship and, having none, simply made them up.” As if the press ever do that Mr Labov?
