Last week, we posted a video of Zooey Deschanel & Joseph Gordon Levitt singing a New Year’s Eve song. Zooey posted the video and explained her 12 year relationship with JGL..
“I have known Joe Gordon-Levitt for going on 12 years. We first met in the summer of 2000 while doing a tiny movie called Manic, where we bonded over a mutual appreciation for Harry Nilsson and Nina Simone and I have been lucky enough to call him one of my dearest friends ever since.”
theBERRY is in agreement with me that — if JGL isn’t going to date our lovely Julie — Zooey and JGL should just date already. Click on over to see 25 photos of the twosome looking stupidly adorable together. Read more…
“[Bob Geldof] and Sting had gone to do an interview with a rock journalist, and the interview turned into a drinking session. At one point, the journalist asked how long they could go for, and Geldof said that he was a three-minute man, but, as Sting did yoga, he could probably go for hours …’Well, haven’t you heard of tantric sex?’ [Sting replied] … At the time I thought it was very amusing but then it sort of became a cause celebrate … The tantric hours got extended and, suddenly, I was doing it all day long. Well, if only! … Sting said that 21 years ago. He has just turned 60, and I imagine it will carry on going until he drops.”
– Trudie Styler on how Sting got to be known as the poster boy for tantric sex. I guess she finally wanted to put to bed (no pun intended) rumors that her and Sting do it 24-hours a day. I don’t care what she says. I still want to believe it. [Spinner]
It’s hard to imagine “Precious” without then-unknown Gabourey Sidibe. But Jennifer Hudson was riding high after “Dreamgirls” and said she turned down the role because she didn’t want to gain weight. “I had [gained weight] with Effie and as much as I was moved by this film, I wanted to try a role that had nothing whatsoever to do with my weight,” Jennifer explained, ever the Weight Watchers spokeswoman.

I’m intrigued by the idea of someone else playing such a now-iconic character. This got me thinking … are there other stars who just missed being cast in big roles? The answer is a resounding YES. Keep clicking for 23 more intriguing examples.
We knew there must have been a good reason why Mo’Nique didn’t pay the $370,000 in back rent that her Georgia landlord is suing her for. The actress says she had good reason: the place smelled like dog s**t, wet dog, and urine (not necessarily from a dog). It sounds like a regular zoo. Also, she claims the septic tank regularly overflowed (that would explain the feces and urine smells), there was a mold problem, and the security gate was busted. She is mad about the foul odors to counter-sue. I can’t blame her. Wet dog is like the worst smell in the whole world. It’s an automatic get out of rent free card if you ask me. [TMZ]
RIP, marriage: Russell Brand and Katy Perry are dunzo.
Russell Brand filed for divorce in Los Angeles, citing “irreconciable differences,” and released the following statement: “Sadly, Katy and I are ending our marriage. I’ll always adore her and I know we’ll remain friends.”
The couple married in October 2010, but rumors of a rocky, argument-fueled relationship have long dogged them. They raised eyebrows by spending Christmas this year apart: Russell in England with his friends, Katy in Hawaii with her friends. Both were photographed without wedding rings.
I’m sorry to see these two split … but I’m eager to see what the world looks like with both Rihanna and Katy Perry single and on the prowl! [TMZ] Keep reading »
