Gwyneth Paltrow tells People magazine that she is upset over reports that she thinks Americans are un-intelligent and uncivilized (see post below). Apparently, she never gave an interview to a Portuguese newspaper, but rather did a press conference in Spanish. "This is what I said. I said that Europe is a much older culture and there's a difference. I always say in America, people live to work and in Europe, people work to live. There are positives in both," says the actress, adding, "Obviously I need to go back to seventh-grade Spanish!"
While performing "9 to 5" in a tribute performance to Dolly Parton at the Kennedy Center, a visibly nervous Jessica Simpson abruptly left the stage mid-performance. Somebody needs to wear a dress a little less constricting.
George Clooney's pet pig, Max, has passed away at 18 years of age. "He was as old a pig as the vets had ever seen. I was really surprised, because he's been a big part of my life," says Clooney, who even sometimes shared the same bed with his pet.
We have mixed reviews on Gwyneth. We love her, but she can say some really annoying things. Case in point: "I don't fit into the bad side of American psychology. The British are much more intelligent and civilized than the Americans. I love the English lifestyle. I'm not as capitalistic as America." We love the Brits but it's ignorant of her to generalize. Apparently, Gwyneth has never been to an English football match.
At the London premiere of her new-much-buzzed about film Miss Potter, Renee stated that 20-minute lunch breaks and lots of running around on the set are the key to her slim figure. This is clearly code for "I stay emaciated by starving myself and obsessively exercising."
The rumors are swirling that David Beckham may be moving to the LA Galaxy soccer team... Victoria was spotted over the weekend looking for mansions on the street TomKat live on in LA. Let's hope we don't lose another celeb couple to the Tom Cruise hpynontic cult he likes to call Scientology.
She's cute as a button, with mommy Jennifer Garner out in Brentwood. Garner recently told Elle magazine: "I'm in the worst shape ever. My trainer just shakes her head and says, 'This is a disaster.' I am as physically unfit as I've probably been in my whole life. It's such a horror in front of the mirror with no clothes on. You still have that little bit of extra skin, know what I mean? But still, it's enough for people to think that you're knocked up."
We're big fans of Garner-- gotta love those celebs who don't get tummy tucks after their c-sections!!!
Total Snorzeville. Not worth TIVO-ing. Here's blogger Perez Hilton presenting the "Lowest IQ in the Audience" Award to his best-pal Paris Hilton. We love Perez; it really annoys us that he's in love with Paris.
"I feel there's a nasty connotation when you say 'tell-all,' " says Spelling. "That is not what I plan to do. It's not about calling people out or telling negative stories about people. It's how I see things. I thought, 'I have like 10 seasons' worth of things that happened to me that people would be shocked to hear.' I think I'm a really good storyteller, so why not tell my stories in a humorous, self-deprecating book?"
