Celebs Who’ve Come To The Rescue Of Their Fellow Stars

Kiefer Sutherland, already on probation for a DUI, is in trouble again for allegedly head-butting designer Jack McCollough at a swanky nightclub in Soho on Tuesday. Sutherland channeled his inner two-year-old after McCollough bumped into Brooke Shields and didn’t apologize. This story would be cute if it was about small children, but it’s not. [NYDailyNews] Interestingly, this night-in-shining armor attitude is not uncommon among stars. Below, a few more celebs who have sallied forth to save the day.

Jay Z, who discovered and mentored Rihanna, flipped out when he heard what Chris Brown allegedly did to his gal. A source quoted Jay as saying, “Chris is a walking dead man. He messed with the wrong crew.” [NYPost] — While we’re happy that Jay Z defended Rihanna and all, didn’t he sing “99 Problems”?
When Jessica Simpson became the size of a normal woman, instead of the size of a starving child, everyone freaked out. But Kim Kardashian defended Jessica’s curves. “I think she looks amazing,” Kardashian said. [People] — We give these gals props for representing all of us who aren’t super models and eat once in a while.
Turns out Brooke Shields is no stranger to celebrity defenders. When she wrote Down Came the Rain: My Journey Through Postpartum Depression, Scientologist Tom Cruise flipped his lid. He blasted anti-depressants and psychiatry. Rosie O’Donnell came to Shields’ defense, saying, “Stand tall, girl. You saved a lot of women by telling your truth.” [Hollywood.com] — Perhaps Cruise could benefit from some therapy himself.
When baby-faced Miley Cyrus did a racy photo shoot for Vanity Fair, there was oodles o’ controversy. Thankfully, Justin Timberlake spoke out, “Of course they’re going to pick on a wholesome, American, young female [at] the first sign of anything.” He added, “People want to take a photo, and that’s who you are for a year’s time. We’ve all become victims of that.” [Celebritique] — Cry me a river Justin.
