Lohans dad warns her girlfriend against putting bad influence on her

Lohans dad warns her girlfriend
Hollywood actress Lindsay Lohans father Michael has asked her lesbian lover Samantha Ronson to refrain from putting bad influence on his daughter, otherwise he will publicize her loopholes.

This comes after Lindsay Lohan stated on her blog that she was deeply devastated over the fact that Michael fathered a love child behind her mothers back.

However, Michael is not ready to believe that it is his daughter who criticized him on the blog, instead he is more than convinced it is Samantha, who wrote it.

He further threatened Samantha that he has extremely embarrassing evidence against her, and would make it public if she tried to influence Lohan against him.

“If one more blog or statement is made people will know the entire truth. I will release e-mails, texts, depositions and audio tapes that will prove everything I have been saying all along. If Sam wants to play, I am ready. But she better be ready too!” Contactmusic quoted him as saying.


Victoria Beckham's tattoo anger

Victoria Beckham's tattoo angerVictoria Beckham is furious with husband David for getting another tattoo.

The former Spice Girl had apparently told the soccer superstar to stop adding body art to his already heavily-inked frame, but he couldn't resist squeezing another onto his left arm.

A source said: "Victoria doesn't think David should have anymore tattoos and tried to stop him having another. She likes them but wants a bit of his skin to be left, but David went ahead with it anyway."

The tattoo - which was created by his regular artist Louis Malloy - is a biblical proverb written in Hebrew which reads: "My son, do not forget my teaching but keep my commands in your heart."

He has Victoria's name in Hindi, the number seven - his shirt number for Manchester United and England - in Roman numerals, a guardian angel across his back and a Michelangelo angel on his right arm

It accompanies another Hebrew phrase on the same arm which translates: "I am my beloved and my beloved is mine". Victoria has the same tattoo.

David, 33, is known for his obsession with tattoos and his upper body is covered in etchings.

He has Victoria's name in Hindi, the number seven - his shirt number for Manchester United and England - in Roman numerals, a guardian angel across his back and a Michelangelo angel on his right arm.

Victoria, 34, is said to be worried her husband is addicted and won't be able to stop adding tattoos to his already impressive collection.The source added to Britain's The Sun newspaper: "She is worried he is hooked and she doesn't know where it will all end. He is a very healthy guy. He doesn't smoke, barely drinks and looks after his body very carefully. But his outside is far from clean."


Kate Winslet's porn defence

Kate Winslet's porn defenceKate Winslet says she is "not a porn star".

The British actress - who is married to 'Revolutionary Road' director Sam Mendes - has defended her choice to appear nude in some of her movies, insisting Sam doesn't mind her stripping off if it "enhances" the film.

She said: "Of course Sam doesn't get jealous. I'm not a porn star. I'm not walking out there and actually having sex with other people for my job. He doesn't get jealous at all, not in the slightest. It's really not a big deal.

"I feel that any level of nudity in films that I have been a part of has been absolutely relevant and actually enhanced the story."

He doesn't get jealous at all, not in the slightest

Kate recently revealed she struggled with her nude scenes in new post-war drama 'The Reader'.

She said: "It really took me to the brink in many ways. To bring my character Hanna Schmitz to life was an absolutely enormous challenge and a huge responsibility as well, because it's a much-loved piece of German literature. Many people have differing opinions of Hanna Schmitz - they love her, they loathe her."

How did you do?76 - 100: Madonna. You truly are the king or queen of celebrity gossip. You know your Britney from your Whitney, and your Zuma from your Bronx. Whether it's a baby being born, a proposal being accepted or a celebrity being shipped to rehab, you always have the lowdown on who is hot and who's not in Hollywood. Only the most Z-list of celebrities drop off your radar, and who cares about them anyway?

51 - 75: Victoria Beckham. Well done, you're always up with the latest happenings in the land of celebrity. You try hard and strive to be the best, but let's be honest - you're not quite there yet. You know who's dating who and why, but you don't live and breathe showbiz gossip. A bit like Jennifer 'I'm lucky in love' Aniston, we're just not buying it. Still, with a little more work and bit more dedication next year you might just qualify to the A-list.

26 - 50: Hey Pete Wentz. You're trying, but it's still not enough. You're interest in the lives of the stars is much like Sienna Miller's interest in the media - it's fine when she's got a film out, not so good the rest of the time. Some hard work is going to be needed if you want to catapult to the A-list next year.

0 - 25: You are Tara Reid. It's no surprise you've done so badly, you've clearly been cocooned in a fog all year. The highs and lows of celebrity life have completely passed you by - there's more chance of Britney singing live, Amy getting clean or Jacko balancing his cheque book than there is of you recognising an A-lister. Spend at least an hour a day reading up on celebrity gossip, or forever be doomed to a life without stardom.

Xmas killer Beyonce Knowles

Xmas killer Beyonce KnowlesBeyonce Knowles is worried she might kill her family when she cooks Christmas dinner.

He added to US radio station Sirius: "I had a scared moment right before she went into labour - I thought I was having a heart attack for real, like my heart started doing like a weird thing.

"But, the first time I held him. I just knew everything was perfect. Like everything was good - it was like Lego, you know what I'm saying? Like it all fit together."


Japanese porn actress-turned-AIDS activist found dead

Japanese porn actress Ai IijimaFormer Japanese porn actress Ai Iijima, who campaigned for AIDS awareness in a nation where it is still widely seen as a foreign disease, was found dead at her home Wednesday, police said.

The body of the 36-year-old, who retired in March last year from a lucrative career as a television personality, was found lying in the lounge of her condominium in downtown Shibuya by a friend.

"There were few signs of foul play. We will conduct a post mortem tomorrow to determine if the cause of her death was an illness, suicide or something of a criminal nature," a police spokesman said.

Iijima, who was also known in the rest of Asia, gained popularity at home as a straight-talking character since her debut on television variety shows in the 1990s.

Her AIDS awareness campaign started around the time she published the autobiographical "Platonic Sex" in 2000, describing her younger days as a porn actress and club hostess.

The book has sold some two million copies and been made into a movie and a television drama.

Citing kidney problems and a lack of motivation, Iijima retired from the show and television business world but continued her AIDS campaign.

"In Japan, HIV-positive patients are increasing year by year and many people's lives are lost," she wrote on her blog on December 2. "Is your boyfriend alright? Is your girlfriend alright? Why don't you take an AIDS test to know yourself."

She stopped writing her blog on December 5 and was seen at an AIDS seminar in a provincial city the following day.

In a recent interview with the weekly Asahi, Iijima said she had just borrowed money from an investment back and would "open a shopping site dealing with cosmetics."

Britney Spears' sex disguise

Britney Spears' sex disguiseBritney Spears reportedly snuck out of her home in disguise for a secret sex session.

The 'Womanizer' singer apparently defied her father Jamie's ban on men to enjoy the saucy rendezvous with a mystery friend - and even bragged of her romp when she got home.

A source said: "She's been a prisoner in her own home and began to crave affection and attention from someone other than her parents, which is only natural.

"She told her dad she got a ride with the person she'd arranged to meet and gone to their house in Los Angeles for a few hours.

The source added to Britain's Now magazine: Britney told him that she was a grown woman and ordered him to get out of her room

"She told him not to worry and that it was someone she'd known a long time who was a good person and wouldn't hurt her."

However, Jamie - who is co-conservator of her estate following her public meltdown last year - was apparently furious over the incident.

The source added to Britain's Now magazine: "Britney told him that she was a grown woman and ordered him to get out of her room. She didn't come out for the rest of the day."

Madonna Jesus Love

Madonna Jesus LoveMadonna is reportedly having a fling with a Brazilian male model.

The '4 Minutes' singer met Jesus Luz in Rio de Janeiro while on a shoot for American magazine W, and the pair became so close she invited him to join her on the Sao Paolo leg of her 'Sticky and Sweet' world tour.

A source told the New York Post newspaper: "She was very interested in him. He's there with her now and photographer Steven Klein is helping him get along with everyone."

Madonna and Jesus reportedly struggled to keep their hands off each other when they met, and did little to hide their fledgling relationship from onlookers.

The pair also went to a star-studded Christmas bash over the weekend, where other guests included Stella and Mary McCartney, Lily Allen, Sir Mick Jagger and Kevin Spacey

Another source said: "Everyone knows they are ficando - which is a Portuguese expression that means they are kissing and doing other things but without any obligation of being faithful or getting into a relationship afterwards."

Meanwhile, Madonna is said to be "thrilled" at reports her estranged husband Guy Ritchie is dating Jemima Khan.

Guy and Jemima - who was previously married to Pakistan cricket legend Imran Khan and dated Hugh Grant - attended a dinner party together earlier this month. The pair also went to a star-studded Christmas bash over the weekend, where other guests included Stella and Mary McCartney, Lily Allen, Sir Mick Jagger and Kevin Spacey.

A friend of Madonna said: "It's not like she's asking him for details, but she's thrilled at the prospect of him moving on. It makes things easier for everybody."

US starlets are Bitchier than UK ones: Emma Watson

Emma WatsonBrit actress Emma Watson has revealed that she finds US starlets her age bitchier than the ones in UK.

Watson also said that life in Britain was totally different, and that a bitchy attitude was never tolerated there.

Gosh, I could never be that bitchy! I think that living in England, it’’s very disconnected from Hollywood, the Daily Express quoted her as saying.

There’s a very different approach and attitude towards it. Acting in a starry way is just not tolerated. You will just have the piss taken out of you. People will just laugh at you, she said.

The 18-year-old Harry Potter star admitted that she enjoyed visiting California and loved to go there for work.

She, however, said that a permanent move was something she had not thought about as yet.

Never say never, but I can”t imagine it. I think that it’’s a wonderful lifestyle that you have here - the weather is amazing and everyone seems very healthy. It seems like a really nice place to live, she told AOL’’s Moviefone.com

Obviously, if I had a film here or whatever, then that would be great. But I don”t really know a lot of people here, she added.

Jennifer Aniston: "It's My Time"

Jennifer Aniston Its My TimeJennifer Aniston may just be the Hollywood's hottest celebrity.

Aniston is the subject of articles in numerous magazines -- GQ and Vogue, among them, not to mention pieces in seemingly countless tabloids.

She also stars with Owen Wilson in "Marley and Me," a touching romantic comedy based on John Grogan’s best-seller, about a young couple who buys a very behavior-challenged dog, and where life leads them. The movie opens nationwide Christmas Day.

Oh -- and did we mention that Aniston poses all-but-nude -- wearing only a tie -- for GQ's cover?

Aniston, 39, told Early Show co-anchor Harry Smith Friday all the attention tends to become a blur, as her picture leaps out at her from newsstands everywhere.

"It's funny," she explained. "I mean, I honestly see it as a different person. It's just -- well, because the (tabloid) headlines are just outrageous, so you usually get a kick out of that. But you just kind of go -- you try to walk past it as fast as you possibly can, honestly."

As onlookers on the street gawked at Aniston through the studio window, Smith remarked about how difficult it must be to have fans notice her everywhere.

"It's amazing how you can sort of start to tune them out," Aniston replied."

Smith said he "gets the sense" it's simply her time, and Aniston agreed, observing, "It's my time. I feel just really -- I mean, I just feel like, you know, every woman that's ever said -- or man -- that's said it just gets better. I just agree. I just wish we could have -- it's the thing: You don't know as much as you know in your 20s as you do in your 30s as you do when you are..."

Smith took it further, paraphrasing a line in the Bernard Malamud novel, "The Natural," that says, 'We live two lives: one we learn with, and the other we live with.' "So, you may be in the 'live with' one," Smith suggested.

"I'm startin' to live. It's good!" Aniston responded.

Turning to "Marley and Me," Aniston said it "packs a punch," evoking a full range of emotions as it follows a newlywed couple over 15 years, beginning as a light film, then yanking at the heart.

She says it tells the couple's story "from that early stage of being married and excited and your careers and futures and dreams are right ahead of you, and then, just sort of -- life!"

But in it, "I get to get my hands a little dirty. And it was also ... so nice to sort of not be in a -- your normal romantic comedy, where it's about getting the guy or getting the girl. This sort of starts as a -- at the end when they walk off into the sunset, and you get to actually tell the story."

Aniston says she saw "Marley and Me" with an audience at its premiere in Los Angeles last week and heard "audible moans and snorts" from people getting choked up."

She and Wilson "had a great time (working together). It was easy from the minute we met. We just had that, you know, very similar sensibilities. We worked very similarly. We kind of -- he's just so good."


Anne Hathaway dumped ex-beau over dead Flowers!

Anne Hathaway has revealed that she broke off with her ex boyfriend Raffaello Follieri over a bunch of dead flowers.

The ‘Rachel Getting Married’ beauty said that she realized that he wasn’t the one for her when he insisted to throw out an arrangement of wilting cherry blossom branches.

They lasted a month and were beautiful even as they died, The Sun quoted her as saying of the flowers.

She added: Raffaello always liked things fancier and perfect and told our maid to throw them out. That was when I knew we saw things differently.

And what looks like, Anne would have anyhow dumped the businessman after he was convicted on charges of fraud.

Eva Mendes plans bizarre nude pic sequel

Eva MendesNude Picture SequelEva Mendes wants to appear in a Peta advert naked with Morrissey.

The stunning Latino actress wants to team up with the outspoken vegetarian singer to raise awareness of animal rights and is prepared to bare all in front of Morrissey.

Eva - who has stripped off for Peta (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) before - said: "I really want to do a Peta ad with Morrissey, I'd be happy to do it naked if need be. I've done a lot of work with them and I know Morrissey is a big supporter of Peta, so here's hoping!"

The Spirit star - who is a huge fan of Morrissey's former band The Smiths - is hoping the Meat Is Murder singer will return the favour and go nude as well.

The actress - who is dating producer George Gargurevich - revealed: "When he sings it's poetry in motion to me. It completely speaks to me.

Madonna settles divorce for up to $166m

http://celebscrash.blogspot.com/search/label/Madonna?max-results=5Madonna paid her ex-husband British director Guy Ritchie up to £60 million (NZ$166m) to settle their divorce after eight years of marriage, her spokeswoman has confirmed.

Liz Rosenberg said the singer, 50, had given Ritchie, 40, between £50 and £60 million as part of their divorce, which was granted by a British court on November 21.

She said that sum includes the couple's English country estate, Ashcombe, which is valued at £20 million.

The couple's combined wealth has been estimated at about US$525 million, but Madonna accounts for most of it.

Rosenberg said custody arrangements for the couple's children have not been finalised.

Madonna and Ritchie have an eight-year-old son, Rocco, and three-year-old son David, adopted from Malawi.

The singer also has a daughter Lourdes, born in 1996, from her relationship with fitness trainer Carlos Leon.

Madonna, one of the most successful singers of all time with estimated album sales of more than 200 million, was married once before, to actor Sean Penn, in the 1980s.

Madonna and Ritchie announced their split in October, nearly eight years after their fairytale wedding at Skibo Castle in Scotland.

Ritchie is a British film director who is making Hollywood blockbuster Sherlock Holmes starring Robert Downey Jr as the Victorian-era super sleuth.


Bradman 'Invincibles' tour cap fails to sell at Australian auction

Bradman 'Invincibles' tour capThe baggy green cap worn by Australian cricket legend Donald Bradman at his final Test Monday failed to sell at an auction in Melbourne despite generating global media interest.

The cap, Bradman's when he captained the 1948 Australian 'Invincibles' on their Ashes tour of England, had been expected to fetch more than 600,000 dollars (400,000 US) at the Charles Leski Auction.

Ahead of the auction, Leski said the item was "the most valuable item to come on the market in the sporting memorabilia field in Australia".

But not a single offer was made at auction.

Leski said his auction house would be negotiating with a client who had previously made an offer and he was confident it would be sold within 24 hours.

The cap was given to the son of an English friend of Bradman's after the Australian cricketer noticed the boy playing cricket in a substandard hat.

"Sir Don said: 'We can't have that, we'd better get you a decent one', and a short while later in the mail the 1948 baggy green arrived," Leski told the Nine Network.

Leski said Richard Robins Jr eventually sold the cap, which comes with a letter of authenticity, to an Australian in 2003.

Bradman, who died in 2001 aged 92, played his last match in England in 1948 and retired with a yet-to-be-topped Test batting average of 99.94 despite scoring a duck in his final innings.

Notorious party girl enters rehab

Notorious party girl enters rehabActress Tara Reid has checked herself into rehab.

The notorious party girl, who makes headlines for her wild antics and plastic surgery-enhanced figure, had checked into the Promises Treatment Centre in Malibu, her publicist confirmed.

He did not say what Reid was being treated for.

"We appreciate your respect to her and her family's privacy at this time,'' he said.

Reid, 33, was infamously photographed topless on the red carpet when her dress slipped off, exposing one of her breasts.

Reid has starred in American Pie, and had a guest role in television sitcom Scrubs. She has admitted several of her cosmetic surgery enhancements were botched.

"We live on a farm with 40 acres of land. I've got an amazing vegetable garden. Courgettes, vine-ripened tomatoes, corn. I always dreamed of it. I tried one in LA when I was 25. It was OK but it wasn't like this – huge and overgrown and people coming over to take vegetables home.

"We go down to the local coffee shop every morning. We're part of a community and it's lovely."

Kidman, 41, also revealed her philosophy of life.

She said, "Part of our job as human beings is to share our knowledge. So, have no regrets.

"Every relationship leads you to where you want to be. Learn to be comfortable with being alone and saying no to people. Read great literature. Define your moral code. Keep asking questions and challenging. Rebellion creates character."

Jennifer Aniston Posses Nude with a Tie

Jennifer Aniston Posses Nude with a TieJennifer Aniston is heading toward 40 but you'll have a hard time thinking of another 40-year old with a killer body like hers. Aniston poses completely nude with only a tie in the January issue of GQ Magazine. She definitely has more to say than to wear.

Here is what she has to say on why she thinks people are still interested in her split with Brad, 4 years after the fact:

The funny thing is that people don't realize we all go away to the Hamptons on the weekends... No. But can you imagine? That'd be hysterical: I've got Zahara on my hip, and Knox…

Jennifer current relationship with Brad:

We don't not talk. When there's something to congratulate or celebrate, there's always an exchange. But there's no charge on it.

Jennifer on-again boyfriend John Mayer:

Honestly, did not know much about him before I met him. I'd heard... you know, uh 'Your Body' – that song. But what I can say is that I had no idea what an extraordinary musician he is. And it's just great to sit and be witness t that. It's kind of like, Whoa!

What Jennifer Aniston sees as a disturbing problem in Hollywood:

Look, I think all women on some level just want to rage against the machine... There are too many movies out there that don't empower women, movies in which their only way of being happy is finding a man. And you know, that's not my favorite theme.

On the rumors surrounding Jen and John:

I am not having his baby. And I have not popped the question.

Gemma Atkinson learns to fly

Gemma Atkinson learns to flyGemma Atkinson is thrilled to land the role of Peter Pan and is learning to 'fly' for it. The former Hollyoaks babe will be thrilling panto fans by soaring above the stage as the children’s favourite character.

Atkinson has been working so hard on her flying lessons that many people actually mistook her for a UFO. "She's been working very long hours rehearsing for Peter Pan and has the added pressure of learning how to fly," the Daily Star quoted a pal, as saying. "The panto is based in Manchester but she's having flying lessons down in London, so she has been completely exhausted by the end of each working day. I think there was a bit of a shock when some people saw her flying around at the place where she practised," the pal added.

Atkinson has put her wedding to fiance Marcus Bent on hold for the time being due to work. "She was absolutely thrilled when Marcus asked her to marry him but she's had absolutely no time to start planning the wedding," the pal said. "She's got some time off over Christmas, which she intends to spend with her family. She'll obviously see Marcus too, so I'm sure that they'll start talking about their plans then," the pal added.

Emma Watson Has Nude AmbitionsThe 18-year-old star Emma Watson hasn't ruled out shedding her clothes for a film role, but would only agree if she was asked by renowned Italian director Bernardo Bertolucci. She recently did an interview with The Times where she said that she would go naked for a good movie role. Here is an excerpt of the article:

Emma Watson would go nude, for Bernardo Bertolucci. It depends. I'm not taking my clothes off anytime soon, but it is part of my job.

The "Harry Potter" actress also revealed she is struggling to fit into the movie industry at the moment because of her age. She added to Britain's Style magazine:

I am at a strange age. I'm not a woman yet, but I'm not a girl anymore. Film companies say, 'Oh, in a couple of years you will be perfect for this.' I'll be like, 'Yeah, but I want to be studying English at university then, so it's going to be tough to choose between the two.

I hope she will not end up like Megan Fox or Marisa Miller, or on the cover of Playboy.

Bonann, who launched Anderson and her co-star David Hasselhoff into stardom, has plans for a new drama in New Zealand and wants to do the same with three Kiwi girls in a show dubbed 'Southern Lakes'.

He has started work with some of Hollywood's well-known writers to develop a script for the show, and hopes to shoot a pilot episode in Queenstown next year. His Kiwi-born business partner, Walter Brown, who co-produced Baywatch Downunder, an Australian spin-off of the hit lifeguard series, revealed on December 7 that the show would be a sizzling hot drama that played on Queenstown's massive tourism scene.

"One idea to maximise the breathtaking landscapes of the Southern Lakes region and to ensure the show has a tourism theme with an endless flow of colourful international characters is (having) three beautiful, adventurous sisters return to Queenstown to rescue their grandfather's floundering floatplane charter service, Queenstown Air," the NZPA quoted Brown as telling Sunday News from his base in California.

"Trouble, drama and adventure find them each week as they fight to preserve their family business in the face of overwhelming odds," he said. Brown hopes most of the characters including the three principal roles will be found and cast in New Zealand and expects the drama to be a hit.

"Greg created the most popular television series in history so he knows what people want to watch," he said. "Baywatch had all the elements to be extraordinarily successful in its day and it created household names. Of course every producer hopes for that kind of success and personally, I think New Zealand has the magic to do it," he added.

Meanwhile, humanitarian Theron was also in news for being appointed as the United Nations Messenger Of Peace for her contribution in ending violence against women.

The stunner's first fashion show for Victoria's Secret was in 1998 and since being contracted as an Angel in 2000, she has appeared on subsequent shows ever since.

She starred alongside Mickey Rourke in 2001 film The Follow and played herself in an episode of Ugly Betty this year.

Meanwhile, Adriana was also in news for being the face of world's most expensive bra costing 5 million dollar.


Ellen DeGeneres keen to get pregnant

Ellen DeGeneres keen to get pregnantEllen DeGeneres says adverts for children's clothing make her want to have a baby.

Ellen, who married her female partner Portia di Rossi in a ceremony in August, is thinking about starting a family after seeing the "cute" models featured in clothing company GAP's new campaign.

She joked: "I see those adverts that have the babies in them for GAP and maybe it's cute that they have a little GAP knit sweater on their head, a little GAP outfit. But they advertise kids very well, those GAP ads.

"I don't even look at the clothes - I just go, 'That's a cute baby, I'll take that one'."

Speaking more seriously, Ellen, 50, added that because she and Portia, 35, are a same sex couple they have to carefully consider having a child.

She said: "I think that's one of the things about not being able to just accidentally get pregnant and have a child. You really, really have to want one - whether it's trying to figure out how you get pregnant or if you adopt."

She is also keen to stress that, despite her broodiness, she and Portia have no plans to increase their family at present.

Ellen added to AOL TV: "I think that's even more of a reason that people that aren't able to have kids should be allowed to adopt - because you have to really want a kid, and that's a big responsibility.

"So we are not taking it lightly. We would really think about it before we did it."


Kate Moss to throw pregnancy party

Kate Moss to throw pregnancy partyKate Moss is reportedly throwing a party to announce she is pregnant.

The supermodel - who already has a six-year-old daughter Lila Grace with ex-boyfriend Jefferson Hack - is said to be planning to reveal her happy news at her Cotswolds country home on December 18.

It is believed she will gather all her close friends and family together to tell them she and partner Jamie Hince are having their first child together.

A source said: "Kate has been on the phone to all her friends and her PA has been on the case to her family. Kate has had a few big nights out recently but she has been behaving more than usual. Even Simon Cowell said she had a bit of a tummy when she went to The X Factor last weekend."

Kate, 34, first sparked pregnancy rumours after wearing a series of baggy outfits and cutting alcohol out of her lifestyle.

Meanwhile, it has been revealed Kate took her 60-year-old nanny Mary Davidson on a massive shopping spree at British high street store Topshop.

A source revealed: "Mary was shy and bewildered at first but soon got into the swing as Kate encouraged her. She came away with more than £3,000 of clothes and shoppers found their jaws dropping as they bumped into Kate and she was shouting, ‘Come on girl, buy buy buy!’ Mary just kept saying, ‘But what will I get you for Christmas?'"

However, the bill for the spree was not picked up Kate - who is a designer for the clothing chain - but by Topshop owner Sir Philip Green.


Bollywood fever hits Malaysia as Shah Rukh Khan 'knighted'

Bollywood fever hits Malaysia as Shah Rukh Khan 'knighted'KUALA LUMPUR – Bollywood fever has hit Malaysia as Indian movie icon Shah Rukh Khan flew in to be awarded the nation's equivalent of a knighthood.

Khan was presented with an award from Malacca which carries the title "Datuk", equivalent to a British knighthood, after a 2001 film which was set in the southern state boosted its profile as a tourist destination.

The actor was decked in a gold and black traditional Malay outfit for the Saturday ceremony, which was attended by more than 500 invited guests.

The crowd -- including the wives and teenaged children of diplomats and politicians -- shrieked his name and mobbed the star.

The 42-year-old heartthrob is well-loved in Malaysia, where Indian films have a huge following among ethnic Indians, majority Muslim-Malays and the ethnic Chinese community as well.

"It is a wonderful honor, it is very, very prestigious for me and... for all the people who act in films in my country," Khan told reporters.

"When you are an actor, you truly believe that the language that you speak can be truly international and go across boundaries and bring hope especially in today's time and age, when the world is full of strife."

Khan was taken on a tour of Malacca's tourist attractions before meeting thousands of fans.

"I love Shah Rukh. I got especially dolled up for him today and even though I am an ethnic Chinese, I really enjoy watching Hindi movies with Shah Rukh in them," said 22-year-old Chia Hooi Ling who attended the ceremony.

The award drew some controversy, with politicians questioning whether local artists should be recognised instead.

But fans were thrilled by the visit, which drew a large crowd of citizens, tourists and trishaw riders with Hindi movie songs blaring on their radios -- all hoping for a glimpse of the legend in the flesh.

"It is a dream come true for me. I traveled from Kuala Lumpur to see him and I managed to take a picture with him," said Siti Asmah Abdullah, a 21-year-old university student.

"He's lovely and very charming. Even my grandmother is in love with him," said Angelica Das, 16, who waited for hours to see him.

For local trishaw driver, Abu Mat Kassim, Khan's presence in the state -- where he filmed "One 2 Ka 4" -- meant a boost for his business.

"Look at how much he has done to make Malacca famous," he said. "We love him and we are proud to have this fabulous star as a Malaccan Datuk."


Aniston's raunchy wet T-shirt calendar making illegal buzz in cyberspace

Actress Jennifer Anistons raunchy wet T-shirt pics could be illegally making their way onto the mens computers as a 2009 Desktop Calendar.

Turn to the month of November in the calendar and the Friends star appears in a wet dishevelled fine cotton T-shirt with her breast clearly visible as she tosses her head back under a waterfall.

But Anistons rep says that the calendar might be illegal.

“I dont think this is legal,” Fox News quoted the spokesperson for Aniston as telling Tarts.

“The rights for those photographs belong to the photographers,” the spokesperson added.

An attorney also confirmed that uncredited pics are generally a violation of the photographers rights.


Angelina Jolie tops actress salary list

Angelina Jolie tops actress salary listOscar-winner Angelina Jolie has proven again how handsomely it pays to combine gun-wielding action with serious roles, as she topped The Hollywood Reporter's list of highest-earning actresses on Friday.

But salaries are plummeting for top actresses and still lag the earnings of leading men, the trade paper said.

Jolie, 33, earned $15 million for the action movie "Wanted" this year and she could make $20 million to star in a possible sequel, it said.

Jolie played dramatic roles in 2007's "A Mighty Heart" and in this year's "Changeling." The mother of six and partner of actor Brad Pitt last month talked about eventually fading away from acting to spend more time with her family.

Oscar winner Julia Roberts, 41, claimed the No. 2 spot after a long absence from the screen, making more than $15 million for "Duplicity," which comes out next year.

Actors are also earning less, with the exception of Will Smith, star of blockbusters "Hancock" and "I Am Legend," who is riding high with up to $25 million per movie.

"Everyone else's prices have gone down," an unidentified talent agent told The Hollywood Reporter.

Reese Witherspoon, 32, who topped the female list last year after winning an Oscar for her role in the 2005 movie "Walk the Line," dropped to No. 3. She earned $14 million for appearing in the comedy hit "Four Christmases" that opened last week.

Cameron Diaz, Katherine Heigl, Kate Hudson, Anne Hathaway and Jennifer Aniston rounded out the list, with 39-year-old "Friends" star Aniston earning more than $8 million for the comedy "Marley & Me" opening on Christmas Day.

Big stars such as Halle Berry and Nicole Kidman -- both Oscar winners -- are no longer able to earn $10 million a movie.

Compare that with Pitt and Johnny Depp, who according to The Hollywood Reporter make between $15 million and $20 million per film.
