“If you are openly gay, the masses can be asses and sometimes can’t get past the fact that that’s how someone lives their private life. Some actors have to make a choice. If they have the opportunity to become these huge megastars, making millions and millions of dollars and have to live a lie, that’s a choice they have to make. Not that I would ever be a big star, but I just had to live my life the way I saw fit.”

Apparently, one Sam leads to another, since Lindsay Lohan has a new man in her life — Sam Webb, a European Dolce & Gabbana model! A source managed to make Lindsay sound super desperate about the guy, saying, “She’s obsessed with Sam. She’s looking for projects that are based in England so she can be near him. She’s been talking about moving to England because of him. She’s fallen pretty hard for him and follows him wherever he goes. She loves that he’s part of the fashion scene and that he’s legitimate.” Lindsay attended Paris and Milan Fashion Week with her new arm candy. Not much is known about Sam, but because we’ll probably be seeing a lot more of him in the near future, we decided to snoop around the Webb to see what we might find.

“I knew it had the potential to be something special right away. It was like meeting somebody that I’ve just known where you just recognize one another. It was so disproportionate, the level of emotion we were experiencing to the time we had spent together. When you don’t know someone, you can’t just jump and say, ‘I love you.’ ‘Nice to meet you, I love you!’ Yeah. No. We used to end our calls or emails with ‘And everything we don’t say.’”

It must suck to get dumped by Greg Brady, aka Barry Williams. But it must suck even more to get dumped by Greg Brady the way 31-year-old Elizabeth Kennedy claims she was. The two were in post-coital bliss after a morning romp in December. “He told me he was going down the car to get his cellphone and instead he let his lawyer in,” she told RadarOnline.com. “And she tells me that I have 10 minutes to put my shoes on, hand over my keys and get out of the house.” The lawyer allegedly served her with papers telling her to move out and accusing her of withdrawing $29,000 from Williams’ bank account. The papers concluded: “Mr. Williams has instructed us to advise you that he is immediately terminating the personal relationship, which you and he have enjoyed.” Keep reading »
“I’d like to find that person. I think Jimmy and I had every intention of spending the rest of our lives with each other. I love love. It’s my top priority. Jimmy will tell you. … We were together for so long and tried our best to make it work. … I just love him to pieces. Sometimes I think maybe we’ll die together in our old age or something.”

Yesterday, we were sad to hear that our dear Kate Winslet had split from her husband, director Sam Mendes, after six years together. Kate is currently vacationing in Mexico with her two adorable children, but when she gets back, she should probably start thinking about … finding someone new. The obvious choice—Leonardo DiCaprio. The two steamed up the screen in both “Titanic” and “Revolutionary Road,” which was ultra awkies since Mendes was directing their love scenes. It’s always seemed like these two have a special bond, not to mention they look pretty great together. If only Leo would break up with Bar Rafaeli!
Just in case Leo isn’t on the market anytime soon, here are some other ideas for who she should date next. Keep reading »
“I got to the studio and I felt like I was E.T. — whoa, what’s going on? Hair and makeup? I hadn’t looked at myself in a mirror for a month-and-a-half. I’d been in my house, in a cocoon with my kids, my husband, my dogs. Usually, as I walk through the door into that atmosphere, I already feel different. There’s a button that goes On and I’m On. And when I go On, there is almost no me; there is just a character who is doing all this. This time it wasn’t like that. I’ve been really inside with my husband and my baby, and everything is changed. But the client still deserves respect and professionalism, and I got a little bit concerned because I wasn’t feeling it. Makeup was done, hair was done, and I looked in the mirror and I still wasn’t seeing the person who’s a model. For the first time, I think I actually saw me — the inside — instead of the persona.”
