Leonardo DiCaprio and his gorgeous Israeli supermodel girlfriend Bar Refaeli have apparently gotten too close for an Israeli organization called Lehava. In Hebrew Lehava means “flame” and is the Hebrew acronym for “Preventing Assimilation in the Holy Land.” Basically, it “assists” Jewish girls to get out of relationships with non-Jews. The organization wrote Refaeli a letter and sent it to her mother. It said, “It is not by chance that you were born Jewish. Your grandmother and her grandmother did not dream that one of their descendants would one day remove the family’s future generations from the Jewish people. Assimilation has forever been one of the enemies of the Jewish people.” Oy gevalt. They also added a “no offense” to Leo clause, as this “has nothing against Mr. DiCaprio, who I have no doubt is a talented actor.” I guess you can’t blame them for trying, but you can’t stop love, especially when it’s for Leo DiCaprio. Why don’t they tell her to convert the guy and start an ultra race of sexy Israeli ex-pats? And haven’t we seen what happens when people try to keep their race “pure”? Nothing good, that’s what.

“I have never seen one episode of ‘Dawson’s Creek.’ I must be the only person on this planet. I went to a Women in Hollywood event two months ago and Katie Holmes was being honored. And all of her clips of ‘Dawson’s Creek’ were with Josh and it was so weird. He was all pimply and had a bloated face [laughs].

Actor Corey Feldman
sat down with Larry King last night to discuss the sudden and tragic death yesterday morning of his longtime best friend, former ’80s teen idol Corey Haim
(see clip above). He said that after over 20 years of battling his drug addiction, Haim was finally getting his act together in recent months, lining up some work projects and taking care of his mother who had recently been diagnosed with breast cancer. “It was the first time I ever saw Corey grow up. He was grown up. He was responsible. He was there with her every day [for] the chemotherapy. He was there with her every day getting the radiation. I actually picked them both up from the hospital and drove them back to their apartment, because he didn’t have a car.” Keep reading »
“Over Christmas [Jennifer] had a tree-trimming party that I went to. Yeah, I trimmed her bush. S**t. Please don’t put that in. … I’m not a big relationship guy. One of my vices is, I’m too wrapped up in myself and not always in a good way. … I think I get laid less now than I used to, because I’m way more paranoid now—look at f-cking Tiger Woods! I mean, I’m nowhere near as naughty as I used to be, partly because I did a lot of that when I was drinking.”

“I don’t read that crap that describes me as having an attitude, but I don’t know why that’s a bad thing. Attitude is in the eye of the beholder. I didn’t get into this to be a role model for 7-year-olds. I have no interest in doing that, you know? If parents don’t like some of the stuff I do then they shouldn’t let their kids watch me.
I smoke, so what? Why do people give a sh*t what a 16-year-old girl who they’ve never met does? It’s not like I’m sitting there going, ‘Kids, you should go buy a pack of cigarettes.’ When I walk outside with a cigarette and someone takes a picture of it and puts it on the Internet, it’s not my problem. I’m just living my life and I’m not gonna live my life for other people.”
– Taylor Momsen does make a good point in an interview with Parade. Parents do need to police who and what influences their children and shouldn’t expect celebrities to do that for them. [Dlisted] Keep reading »
