While things looked perfect in terms of the romance between Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie at the recent Cannes Film Festival, Jolie’s fading frame is reportedly causing some concern for her close friends and family.
“She’s looking too skinny. People are wondering if she’s anorexic,” a Brangelina buddy told Star magazine. “She was the most beautiful woman in the world, but now she looks sickly.”
However, Jolie’s big brother James Haven has suggested that his sister’s skinny look has stemmed from her philanthropic work as a U.N. ambassador.
"Angie visited Ethiopia and it changed her life,” he told British magazine Closer. “It's hard for her to go home to a very expensive restaurant and order freely."
But whatever the reason, Brad is reportedly encouraging his woman to bulk up a little.
“Brad’s been worried about Ang’s appearance and her weight loss for months,” a source splurged to Australia’s Woman’s Day magazine.
Jolie reportedly insists she is trying to gain some pounds, and is “even eating carbohydrates to show Brad that she is serious.”
Naked Britney Spears Billboard Banned in New Zealand
While a lot of people have been curious to see photos of Britney Spears partying panty-free, it seems New Zealanders were put off by her enlarged private parts.
A giant billboard advertising the Sky Channel featured a photo taken late last year of the pop princess getting out of a car while parading her personals. Her genitals were concealed by blue panties and the headline “Something Everybody Wants to See."
However, the country’s advertising standards agency ordered the poster to come down, claiming that it was in “Toxic” taste and degrading to women.
23 Nights With Paris
Paris Hilton's cellmate has been selected, TMZ.com reports.
Officials at the jail have selected an inmate who is doing time for reckless driving, and who they believe will not try to cash in on Hilton's story, the site said.
Alba: 'I Don't Look All That Great'
Someone should buy bronzed and beautiful Jessica Alba some clearer mirrors, as the glamour girl seems to be slightly disillusioned when it comes to her lush looks.
“Most days, I wake up and look in the mirror and go, ‘ugh,’” she told Parade magazine. “I don’t really think I look all that great.”
'Simple' Slapstick: Nicole Richie’s Rude Party Invitation
Itty bitty beauty Nicole Richie has a big sense of humor.
The Tinseltown tiny reportedly sent around a sarcastic e-mail inviting her “fellow American” friends to join her on Memorial Day and “take shots, pass out, & wake up with our pants ripped open at the seems."
It seems Richie only wanted to spend the dutiful day with other skinny starlets, as she insists in the purported invite that there will be scales at the door and nobody “over 100 pounds” would be granted entry.
Well, you know what that say — there’s a little truth in every bit of humor.
The afternoon did go from giggles to ghastly when starlet Mischa Barton's alcoholic beverage interacted badly with the antibiotic she was taking.
SexyBattle: Cameron Diaz vs. Jessica Biel
Organizers of Sunday's MTV Movie Awards will apparently have their work cut out ensuring that Hollywood Boulevard babes Cameron Diaz and Jessica Biel don’t clash on the red carpet.
Diaz reportedly raged at a Golden Globes party this year when she spotted ex-beau Justin Timberlake laughing and lingering with his now new girl, Jessica Biel.
The troublesome triangle is set to cross paths again at the MTV event, where Biel and Diaz are presenting awards and Timberlake has been nominated for his role in “Alpha Dog."
"Everyone is determined to keep Cam and Jess far apart," a source splurged to Page Six. "It's becoming a big deal because the girls both want very separate arrival times. Nobody knows who Cameron is going to bring, if anyone. But if Jessica walks with Justin, Cameron will want to bring a date. If Jessica goes alone, Cam will probably walk alone. It's a mess.”
And there’s also some debate as to who should make the final red carpet cruise.
"Cam is used to being more high-profile than Jessica," said the source. "But now that Jessica's dating Justin, she has more leverage. Cameron's looking a little unstable lately."
Sex Secrets: Can Timberlake Only Tryst to Tunes?
Speaking of Justin, it seems that the music mogul may only be able to bring “SexyBack” to the bedroom when he can romp romantically to rhythms in the background.
When his former flame Cameron Diaz was asked on Australian radio station 2Day FM last week to clear up the rumors, the blonde beauty replied:
“I’ll just let people have their own imagination.”
But Cam’s recent secret-splurging spree about their ruptured relationship in numerous interviews and claim to Movies.com that the “last two years were hell” have reportedly left JT feeling bummed and betrayed.
“He guards his privacy and she used to as well,” a Timberlake buddy told Australia’s NW magazine. “Knowing that what goes on behind closed doors stays there is very important to him. He thought they had an agreement.”
Keira Knightley Diet: Don't Keep Food in the Fridge
If you want to be a Tinseltown tiny like Keira Knightley, then the trick might be to keep your fridge food-free.
“I rarely have anything in the fridge except a rotting apple and an old bottle of soda,” the skinny star told OK! magazine.
But a lack of groceries isn’t the only thing Knightley lacks; it seems the super starlet spares some confidence.
“I’m self-conscious, and that’s a part of my personality that I least like about myself,” she said.
Britney Spears Writes New Letter to Fans
In a new letter to her fans, Britney Spears says she doesn't think she was suffering from a problem with alcohol or depression when she want to rehab.
"Recently, I was sent to a very humbling place called rehab. I truly hit rock bottom. Till [sic] this day I don't think that it was alcohol or depression. I was like a bad kid running around with ADD. I had a manager from a long time ago come in and try to direct me and my life after I got my divorce," she writes.
"I was so overwhelmed I think that I was in a little shock too. I didn't know who to go to. I realized how much energy and love I had put into my past relationship when it was gone because I genuinely did not know what to do with myself, and it made me so sad. I confess, I was so lost," Spears continues.
The pop star adds that recently she has had to cut "so many people" out of her life, partly because they "made more of some issues than was [sic] necessary."
"I think it is actually normal for a young girl to go out after a huge divorce. I think it was a bigger issue because I had not gone out in such a long time," she says.
Eva Mendes' Love-Scene Menu
Eva Mendes may be stunning and seductive, but the brunette beauty couldn’t get down and dirty on screen with Joaquin Phoenix for the filming of “We Own the Night” without a consuming a cocktail.
"I wasn't comfortable at all," she told reporters on Friday at a Cannes press conference. "[The film crew] were very sweet and they poured me a vodka and orange juice and then I was fine. I'm very professional and I don't usually drink on the job, but that morning I had to have a little vodka and OJ.”
This was the first time the Hollywood hottie bared her body in the buff for the sake of cinema, but she admitted that by the end of filming, the flesh-flashing was very freeing.
“I was really, really comfortable with these clowns," Eva added, indicating co-star Phoenix and director James Gray.
