Uma happy she won worst dressed

Uma’s ugliest dress
According to Uma Thurman, the Kill Bill star says she deliberately set out to capture the worst-dressed award at this year’s Oscars ceremony because she didn’t want to look like all the other actresses. She told The Hollywood Reporter that she chose her billowing Christian Lacroix dress because she knew she’d be criticised for it. She said: “The dress didn’t do that thing that people are in the mood for, which is what most people had. Showing her individual, eccentric style that she is renowned for she said “Everyone looked the same. Everyone had it down to such a perfect tee in their spaghetti-strapped, sequined or chiffon, body-hugging, gym-hour promoting things. You get bored. ?That’s when you have to say, ‘I will be worst dressed. I’m glad it was me they panned. I think I deserve it, and I can take it. I need a good panning every so often or I wouldn’t really recognise my life.” Well said Uma!

Far from fat Keira
Keira says LA makes her feel fat
In another sign of actress? not conforming to pressure to look good is UK actress Keira Knightley who says spending too much time in Hollywood makes her feel like she’s fat. The 19-year-old slender star of Pirates of the Caribbean actress has been spending time in Los Angeles for her work. Teen Hollywood quoted her as saying: “I love LA, but I couldn’t live there. If you’re walking around LA, you’re seeing all these perfect people and you start to think: “I’ve got to be like that”. “You have to be really strong to live there – to resist the fad diet and not get the biggest breast implants.” She added: “There are a lot of pressures to conform to type – to be thin, blonde and busty. I’m skinny, but even I couldn’t fit into some of the clothes there. There are some ridiculously skinny people in LA.” Another actress with her feet firmly planted on the ground!

Kiefer Sutherland
24 star files for divorce

No news as to who his latest lady love interest is, although he has been sighted around town in LA on the booze with several leading ladies ? watch this space!

Just friends??
Two-timing Nicole?
Is Nicole Richie proving to be just as bad as best friend Paris Hilton? The Simple Life star and daughter of Lionel Richie has recently been seen with not one, but two different bachelors. Her first beau is Adam Goldstein who she has reportedly been dating for months. Goldstein is well known on the LA dance circuit as DJ A.M. However, Nicole has also been seen with Matthew Felker, better known for kissing Britney Spears in her video Toxic. Nicole and Adam were seen getting rather steamy in an LA club. “It looked like she was going to have sex right there!” said a guest at the club. “People were really shocked and still talking about it the next day.” But a few days later, Nicole and Matthew were seen together. And to top it all off, they magnified their guilt by dodging paparazzi as they tried to leave the club. A source close to Matthew told Star that they’re not dating and that Matthew is more “like a big brother to Nicole.” Yeah?

Are Uma and Ethan over?

Are Uma and Ethan over?

Despite rumours that divorce is imminent for glamour couple Ethan Hawke and Uma Thurman, Hawke?s spokesperson is still denying that the star hooked up with a younger beauty. However, a report in The National Enquirer has alleged that Ethan’s had a relationship with 22-year-old Canadian model Jen Perzow. This follows rumours that Hawke locked lips with Tomb Raider star, Angelina Jolie whilst on location filming Taking Lives in Canada. As recently as last month, Hawke?s spokesman Robert Garlock denied all reports of a separation, claiming, “They’ve been spending every weekend together, so the idea of another woman sounds ridiculous to me.” But US tabloids have been rampant with reports of a split, The Star, paper claiming Thurman already knows about her hubby’s extramarital activities with the young model – and it’s over. One source told the paper, “When Uma first got wind of Ethan’s cheating, they talked and she decided that maybe a one-night fling could be just a mistake and they could work through it. But when people told her that he was having an affair and was with the same girl more than once, it appeared as if it was instantly over in her mind. It seemed like there was no talking, no forgiving, no third chances.”

More Kidman wedding rumours?

It seems that the most recent potential beau for Nicole Kidman, is none other than dreadlocked US rocker Lenny Kravitz. Recent reports from New York newspapers suggest Our Nic and Kravitz have become secretly engaged, after he recently joined her while she was on the set of her new movie The Stepford Wives. But are they really an item? Or could it be that the pair are ?just good friends? and that she has been sharing his NYC apartment out of convenience, while her multimillion-dollar apartment is built near by.

The New York Daily News reported this weekend the two were “mighty cuddly” on recent outings together. The US paper cited sources close to Kravitz, some blabber-mouthed friend who refused to named, of course, stating the pair wanted to get hitched. However, Nic?s US agent has denied that there is any truth to the hush-hush engagement rumours and any plans for a future wedding.

Muso Robert Palmer dies

Musician Robert Palmer died of a heart attack in Paris late last week aged 54. The British star was huge in the 80?s, famous for his hits Addicted to Love, Some Guys Have All the Luck and Didn’t Mean to Turn You On. He had been on a much-needed break with partner Mary Ambrose, after a busy time recording TV appearances in the UK. His manager said he suffered the heart attack in the early hours of Friday morning. He will be fondly remember for his ground breaking video Addicted to Love where he featured a band of identically dressed, identically made-up women. Rock journalist Paul Lester, from Uncut magazine, said Palmer career went from playing clubs in the north of the country, to becoming “elegant and sophisticated” and a master of several styles. “He was kind of a pioneer of blue-eyed soul, which is white men doing black music and R&B pretty well.”
