Zergnet: Simply Irresistible

We were positively puzzled when we saw this headline on Variety.com: “Jolie replaces Cruise in ‘Salt’.” According to the article, Angelina Jolie may take on the title role in Edwin A. Salt, a film about “a CIA officer who is accused by a defector of being a Russian sleeper spy and must elude capture long enough to establish her innocence.” Tom Cruise had wanted to play the role for a long time, but when his interest faded, and Jolie expressed her enthusiasm and the studio decided to rewrite the screenplay with a female lead (the title will also be changed). Now, we didn’t think Angelina and Tom had anything in common, except for the fact that they’re both half of high-powered Hollywood couples, but upon further inspection, we found that the two may have been separated at birth.

Marriage is so out this wedding season! Only Mariah Carey is doing it, that’s how over it is. After a nuptial-less summer — not even Kate Moss made it down the aisle — we started noticing the new Hollywood trend. Longterm partnerships (sans diamonds, splashy affairs, and cheesy photos) are the must-have Ray-Ban Wayfarers of relationships! After both had failed marriages, hippie generation icons Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell have been going at it, without making it official, for 25 years. In an interview, Goldie claimed their secret to success is, “knowing I can walk out at any moment…that keeps things fresh.” And after going through the pain of divorce, many stars seem to agree.
Brangelina just had twins and the magazine covers of OK! and Star are at it again, claiming that Brad’s ex, Jennifer Aniston, is desperate to not be far behind on the procreation bandwagon. While Aniston’s rep denied the rumor today, we still find the story to be pretty messed up. First of all, Jennifer went from being America’s Sweetheart to America’s #1 Cougar in the span of just a few years. And sure, she’s headed straight for the big 4-0, but we didn’t see anyone flinch when 50-something bachelor George Clooney went monogamous with Sarah Larson a few months ago (albeit just for a bit). No one was putting him on the cover of their trash mag claiming he wanted to settle down and spawn. Not every lady’s biological clock is ticking.
Here’s the Hello cover (on stands today) — the magazine got the international rights to the photos (which went for $15 million). After the jump, the People cover, which
doesn’t hit stands until Wednesday which also hits stands today. Keep reading »
By now you’ve probably heard that Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have asked Bono to be godfather to their twins Knox Leon and Vivienne Marcheline. And that Ashlee Simpson-Wentz and Pete Wentz are considering John Mayer for godfather of their unborn child. I’ve never really thought about famous godparents probably because I’ve never really had a great relationship with my own godparents, except for my late Uncle Eddie. However, when this news broke, we at The Frisky decided to research other famous godparents and realized some of these relationships are really surprising. Keep reading »
