He’s my friend,” said Ashton. “If you truly want to change the world, you have to start by changing yourself. [Berg] taught me that and it’s been the most important lesson of my life.” [People]

Hulk Hogan‘s autobiography, My Life Outside the Ring, came out yesterday and, well, it’s pretty depressing. The Hulk says that after his divorce from Linda, he was suicidal and downed a bunch of Xanax with a bottle of rum, while holding a gun in his hand. Of the experience, he wrote, “I could feel the life draining out of me. It had me curling my index finger on the trigger of a loaded handgun and putting it in my mouth. Obviously I didn’t kill myself, but I came damn close.” Sad face. [People]
It’s startling how many celebrities have tried to kill themselves. After the jump, who’s tried and what changed their mind. Keep reading »
Even though Angelina Jolie has a career, six kids and spends her time saving the world and stuff, she still managed to make Maddox’s birthday cake this year, using Sandra Lee’s recipe from Semi-Homemade Cooking, which apparently consisted of buying a white sheet cake, putting a round white cake on top, surrounding it by cupcakes, and then decorating the lot of it. Now I feel like a total jerk for buying a Baskin Robbin’s cake with my face on it for all my friend’s birthdays. Oh wait, no I don’t—those were totally delicious. [People]

The tween readers of AOL’s JSYK.com (for you people above the age of 15, that’s “Just So You Know”) have voted Miley Cyrus the worst celebrity influence of 2009. Why? Because of that pole-dancing stunt at the Teen Choice Awards? Or because of her reckless endangerment of Fuzzy?

It’s been a big week for rumors about Angelina Jolie‘s life, pre-Brad. First came the bombshell rumor from Andrew Morton’s tell-all book that when Angie was 16 she did the horizontal polka with her mom’s boyfriend. Next up came the revelation that of all the people in the world, Angelina once had her eye on Rosie O’Donnell. Rosie told Howard Stern that Angelina, back in the day, asked for her number and called a few times. “There was a tentative plan to have dinner that never came through,” she said. “I was a little afraid of her. She’s scary in a sexual kind of way. I have dreams about her a lot still.” [OK!]
Hmmm … I’m just not sure whether to believe these two rumors. Then again, have you ever noticed that a large percentage of the whispering about Angelina sounds, well, a bit looney—as if she’s the stuff of sexual legends? Here’s a look at some of the most interesting rumors. Keep reading »
“If I don’t want to put on underwear because I’m wearing a dress and don’t want you to see the panty lines, I don’t have a choice. I have to wear underwear. If I get caught not wearing underwear, after I’ve made fun of [Britney and Lindsay] who flash their hot pocket for the camera, then I’m the a**hole. So … for the time being I own a lot of panties. If necessary, I’ll wear three or four pairs at once just to be safe.
