“Because ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ was such a big hit, there was a lot of pressure in terms of what I did next. For my second film, I wanted a role that would stretch me, but all I was getting offered were stereotypical parts like the goofy Indian sidekick. Asian actors tend not to be sent Hollywood scripts that are substantial or challenging. I’m likely to be offered the roles of a terrorist, cab driver and smart geek. I want to show that I have versatility. You have to remember that, before ‘Slumdog,’ the last film about India that went big at the Oscars was ‘Gandhi,’ as played by Ben Kingsley. The fact that me and Freida [Pinto, his girlfriend] have any kind of platform in Hollywood is a big step forward.”
— Cutie patootie Dev Patel, star of the Oscar-winning flick “Slumdog Millionaire” and my fave TV show EVER, “Skins,” is not getting much work. Get on that right quick, Hollywood! [Vancouver Sun] Keep reading »
Mazel tov, Alanis Morisette! The queen of broken relationships has announced in US Weekly that she is expecting her first child with rapper Souleye. The happy couple are getting right down to business after wedding in May.

Hollywood is filled with blondes — both bottled and born — doing their best Marilyn Monroe imitations. Courtney Stodden, teen bride, was just the latest in a long, sordid trail of celebs to break out the pin curls and red lipstick when she did a photo shoot as the star in Hollywood this week. I’m pretty sure Norma Jean is rolling over in her grave. Seriously: stick a fork in this look ’cause it’s done.
The sad thing is I actually know people who would eat this: a vendor at the Wisconsin State Fair is serving up a cheeseburger between two halves of a Krispy Kreme donut as a bun. You can get it with chocolate-covered bacon, too! But your coronary artery wants to know: How many calories? Keep reading »
Am I the only one who can’t tell the assistants on “The Rachel Zoe Project” apart? I thought these gals were the same person until I heard Rachel whining both the names “Jordan” and “Ashley.” True, Ashley Avignone‘s hair is a little darker than Jordan’s. But the women have eerily similar facial features and must shop out of the same Zoe-approved closet. In fact, I swear I’ve seen them somewhere before … as Whitney Port of “The City.” They’ve all got the same long blonde hair, the same pillowy lips, and the same “I spend a lot of time grooming my eyebrows” demeanor. Must be fashion-bot uniform. Keep reading »
With a title like “Please Don’t Leave Me,” you’d think the video would be about that part of the breakup when you’d give both your pinky toes not to get dumped. But no, Pink took the midget-on-a-playground route. Love the silent film look and the cameo by her real-life boo, Carey Hart; confused by … everything else. Points for originality, I guess?
