Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
Don’t mess with Catwoman. The word on the street is that Anne Hathaway, who plays the feline bad girl in “The Dark Knight,” left a stuntman with a major shiner while filming a fight scene. The two were choreographed tussling when Anne hit him with the butt of a prop gun. Apparently, she did this with a lot of force, giving him a black eye. “Anne was mortified,” a source said. “It was all in good humor, but the poor guy took quite a pummeling.” Anne apparently apologized by giving him a pen with an engraving that read, “Remember no one packs a punch like Anne.” Which, I dunno—doesn’t sound like the kind of thing a mortified girl would do?

Of course, Anne isn’t the first time a star has been involved in a stunt-gone-wrong. And many weren’t as lucky as Anne, who inflicted the wound instead of received it. After the jump, stars who’ve been injured doing stunts.
We all know that “The Hangover” star Zach Galifianakis doesn’t necessarily have the most traditional sense of humor, but he still makes people laugh nonetheless.
The actor recently sat down with Rolling Stone and in addition to already revealing possible plot lines for a third (!) “Hangover” flick, he chatted about his short-lived stint as a “Saturday Night Live” writer where he had an awkward run in with Britney Spears, and much, much more.
“I’m glad to hear that Tracy apologized for his comments. Stand-up comics may have the right to “work out” their material in its ugliest and rawest form in front of an audience, but the violent imagery of Tracy’s rant was disturbing to me at a time when homophobic hate crimes continue to be a life-threatening issue for the GLBT Community. It also doesn’t line up with the Tracy Morgan I know, who is not a hateful man and is generally much too sleepy and self-centered to ever hurt another person. I hope for his sake that Tracy’s apology will be accepted as sincere by his gay and lesbian coworkers at “30 Rock”, without whom Tracy would not have lines to say, clothes to wear, sets to stand on, scene partners to act with, or a printed-out paycheck from accounting to put in his pocket. The other producers and I pride ourselves on “30 Rock” being a diverse, safe, and fair workplace.”
— Tina Fey released a statement responding to the news that Tracy Morgan made hateful comments about gays while performing stand-up comedy in Nashville on June 3. Morgan said gays needed to stop “whining” about bullying and that he would stab his son if he ever found he out was gay, among other nastiness. Do you think Tina Fey’s reponse — whether as executive producer of “30 Rock” or as his friend — was appropriate? Or do you think she could have come down a little more harder?

LeAnn Rimes is continuing to defend her thin frame and her personal trainer has joined in saying that the singer is not too thin, claiming she is toned and healthy.
According to People, Rimes has said that the “hoopla about my body” has been hurtful.
Recently, the criticism intensified after she tweeted a photo of herself in a skimpy blue bikini while she was on her honeymoon with husband Eddie Cibrian.
Rimes is quoted saying, “For someone like me who is healthy, who works hard for my body, it’s very frustrating. I work out and take care of myself, and not in an over-obsessive way.” Read more… Keep reading »
