Mark Wahlberg premiered his new film Shooter in London yesterday. While the film hasn't done spectacularly in the states there's always hope it will be a hit with an international audience. In any event, Mark's career is definitely on the up and up, especially after his Oscar nominated part in The Departed. He also just signed on to star in M. Night Shyamalan's The Happening While M. Night hasn't been doing his best work lately, something tells us Mark is just the guy to get us interested in his movies again.
Oh look - Jessica Biel was seen walking her dogs again. I know, it's almost as thrilling as seeing Madonna leave the gym everyday but the good news is we will see Jessica's toned body on the big screen again this summer. She's co-starring alongside comedy heavy hitters Adam Sandler and Kevin James in I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry. She looked like she had a great time filming it and the trailer looks cute. The film doesn't come out until July - I wonder if her new beau, Ryan will walk the red carpet with her this summer.
This week Bono joined fellow musicians Elton John and Paul McCartney in being named a Kinght Commander of the British Empire. Unfortunately, because he's an Irish citizen he won't get the title of "sir." Luckily, he's already thought up a few good replacements, "You have permission to call me anything you want — except sir, all right?" he said. "Lord of lords, your demigodness, that'll do." Bono was joined at the ceremony in Dublin by his wife Ali and their children. His 5-year-old, John, was a little disappointed because he thought his dad was becoming a Jedi. So cute!
Scarlett Johnansson didn't look too pleased to be caught by the paparazzi at JFK returning home to NY this week. Yeah, I suppose no one wants to be snapped immediately post-travel. I've grown to enjoy seeing ScarJo (for some reason, that nickname makes me giggle) on the big screen, but it looks like her newest homage to Manhattan, The Nanny Diaries, has hit a speed bump. The release date has been pushed back from this spring to September 7th. The producers are saying they want to line it up better with award season but it's certainly an ominous sign about the movie. And to be honest, the trailer isn't selling it very well either. I still have high hopes though. Gotta have high hopes.
"On Air with Ryan Seacrest," Ryan's sidekick Ellen K announced that Isla is, in fact, with child. In response, Isla's rep released a cryptic statement.

Jennifer puts a spin on the modern woman in the pages of April's Allure by marrying housewife with black vinyl and stainless steel (and a robot). She says however, that things at home with Ben and Violet aren't exactly glamorous. She's always maintained an everyday girl image and seems as if she's a little taken aback by her celebrity status. As for being married to Ben, she still doesn't really know how that happened either
"He was a really fun partner in crime but I didn't take him seriously, and he didn't take me seriously," she says. "We just made fun of each other and got each other through a hard movie, but it was not leaning toward romance in any way. Then he went through all this stuff in his life, I went through all this stuff in my life, and we would talk every six months: 'Oh, how are you?' Then I was doing the follow-up to Daredevil, and the producer said, 'Will you call Ben and ask him if he'll do a cameo?' And so I called him, and we spent this day doing this cameo, and I was kind of like-Oh! We were both single. And we started emailing. It was very gradual. And surprising. And even now talking about it, I'm surprised."
They do seem like a natural fit together. At least much more so than the original Bennifer. Along with more about Ben, Jennifer discusses how it was hard to lose weight after having Violet but based on these pics you'd never know she had a problem getting back into shape.Source: PopSugar
Some of Hollywood's funniest actors teamed up with ice skating's finest for the LA premiere of Blades of Glory. The movie, which stars Will Ferrell and Jon Heder as professional ice skaters, looks hilarious -- . Based on Will's past success, this movie has huge box office potential, but he doesn't strike us as someone who lets fame get to his head. He recently talked to AP about how lucky he feels to be so well received in a career that he truly loves.
errell: There's definitely a pocket of people who, for whatever reasons, their voices are being listened to at this moment in time and have enough juice to get things made and have this sensibility that seems to be working for audiences. ... It's funny how lucky comedy is. Sometimes an idea will hit you that you find obviously funny and you think, "That could be commercially successful." Aside from those few moments, you're usually just going with something you think is funny and it's just luck that more people than you think it's funny as well.
AP: It sounds like you feel it's fleeting.
Ferrell: I do. I don't know if it's just that thing in me that always feels like, "Ah, I can't believe I still get to do this." It feels like you do for better or worse have a shelf-life.We certainly think that Will will be around for a while. Not only is he incredibly funny, but he seems really sweet, too
Matthew is back in LA after shooting was suspended on Fools Golddue to a dangerous species of jellyfish along the Queensland coast. We guess he'll have to resort to doing his shirtless on the LA beaches instead. Luckily he has a surfing film up next so he'll have an extra excuse to take his shirt off in public. In the meantime he's busy taking back up with the LA party scene. He was out with another mystery woman at PARC Wednesday night. Now if we could only get him to shave that beard.
The deal was worked out in five-hour meeting in the Los Angeles high-rise offices of Spears's attorney. At the table were Spears and Federline, along with Spears's lawyer Laura Wasser and Federline's counsel Kaplan and Jim Simon. During a smoke break downstairs, Spears talked with Federline for 15 minutes, Sands said.
The terms were not revealed. A judge will still have to sign off on the agreement. The deal comes just days after Spears left rehab on March 20.
Spears and Federline got married in September 2004 in a surprise ceremony and soon settled into a Malibu mansion. The couple had two sons, Sean Preston in September 2005 and Jayden James almost a exactly a year later. Not long after their second son was born, signs of trouble appeared in their marriage, with Spears missing many of Federline's promotional appearances for his poorly received hip-hop album Playing With Fire.
Spears filed for divorce on Nov. 7, 2006, citing irreconcilable differences. In a temporary agreement, Spears had custody of the boys with three days of visitation for Federline.
The singer began months of hard-partying in New York, Miami, Las Vegas and Los Angeles, hooking up for a time with Paris Hilton. She initially defended her partying as long-overdue fun, but by January, her manager acknowledged she was having a rocky moment.
After a wild weekend in which she shaved her head, Spears entered rehab at Promises in Malibu, where she stayed for about four weeks. Federline, who watched the boys during her treatment, declined to return custody to Spears until he was satisfied with her post-rehab follow-through, according to a source.
“Everybody is different,” she said. “But for me, having a family will be my greatest achievement. “When you have a family that you can raise the way your parents raised you then I think you have succeeded. I have that dream.”
Then it gets nasty . . . .
“I don’t know when it’s going to happen,” Gi continues. “Everything in life has to be planned. I’m very old-fashioned. I believe in being married and going to your husband and saying ‘Let’s have a kid.’ ”
Well! I think we know who didn’t do any of that - Bridget! As you know, Moynahan announced several weeks ago that she is pregnant with Tom’s first child and that she got in the family way several weeks before they broke up. The baby is due in July.
The Black Eyed Peas' Fergie is still mortified by the notorious 2005 incident which saw her accidentally urniate on stage . She says, "We had to rush onstage before I had the chance to go to the restroom. It was a very embarrassing night for me."
The star, real name Stacy Ann Ferguson, confessed to her embarrassment on British TV series The Dame Edna Show, and blamed the incident during a performance San Diego's Street Scene festival in California on a lack of toilet-going opportunities.

JM: M: When you find yourself in a place where you don't believe in yourself, what do you do?
LT: I just stop and go stand in a dark corner and breathe as deeply as I can into my stomach [laughs] I know this is going to sound crazy, because I'm not religious at all, but sometimes I pray. I just say, "Please help me. Guide me to feel what this person's feeling, and help me to feel real, feel connected."
JM: Do you blame yourself or get pissed off at other people when you're struggling?
LT: No, but are you asking if I spiral? I haven's lately. I worked so much when I was younger, and then I went through a long period when I didn't work a lot, and then I got pregnant and took two years off. I've only just now started to get back to work, so it feels really new. I feel energized and connected in a way that I never felt before...Even if I have to do bad TV shows and soaps forever, this is what I'm meant to be doing [laughs].
Something tells me that Liv won't end up on the soaps, but if so, they would be lucky to have her. Really though, it's all downhill from Empire Records, right? Kidding, kidding (kind of).
Sienna Miller was looking a wee bit tired on Wednesday morning while out to launch the International Indian Film Academy (like our Oscars) at a luncheon at Madame Tussauds in London. Party girl Sienna dragged herself out of bed after what seemed like a fun time celebrating Fergies . The IIFA (and Sienna) also showed support for Global Cool, the anti-global warming organization that has been championed by Josh Hartnett and Orlando, among other young celebs. We can only imagine what Sienna's head must have felt like, but at least she managed to smile (somewhat)
The reason why Tom wants to attend the set is to interfere with the nude scene that Katie has with a young co-star Adam Rothenberg in her new move. He already talked with producers of the movie and told them why the movie would be better without the nude scene. However, industry sources say that the nude scene could really boost Katie’s career as an actor. Although, due to the low budget of the move Tom will have the last word since he has a lot of money and connections.
Such unfortunate decision on his part could jeopardize their relationship, because Katie is trying to continue her slowed down acting carrier and she is very persistent about it, sources say.

She released this statement:
"The weekend's difficulties were brought on by a reaction to an imbalance in medications used to treat my bipolar disorder... Scott was simply trying to help calm me down. I want to make it very clear that he did not hurt me in any way. For lack of a better expression, I was unstable and just lost it."
She also said that the hotel has been paid for damagers and her children didn't witness any of it.
A source said, "Ashley has always thought her nose was a little too big, so she wanted to get it done. When she talked to her sister about it, she loved the idea.
"They both love changing their looks. They thought this would make them look more polished."
Dr. Raj has already worked on the schnozes of Cameron Diaz and Jennifer Aniston.
A source said, “They are both really excited about this new project. Katie recently sketched out some designs for a party dress for Suri’s first birthday and Victoria saw there was the potential there for the two of them to come up with some great designs.
“As they are both mothers who love fashion, it couldn’t have been more ideal for them.”
They decided to go to The Little Door resturant instead where a waiter said they were very touchy-feely and kissed goodbye.

He said, "I used to stare at [her] when she was down by the pool sunbathing naked. I was like 15 or 16 and I was sitting in my pool with a bottle of lotion."
Sean said that he never hit on her, because he couldn't handle the rejection

A source close to Brangelina's security team said, "They're highly skilled operatives with little regard for human life." They call the threat extremely serious and credible.
The couple have already installed a $500,000 security system into their New Orleans home.

Hilary was surprisingly smiley after co-hosting TRL yesterday especially considering she had just had her first run-in with Joel since their break-up last November. We had a feeling that the TRL she hosted and he performed on may have been a bit akward , and as Hilary admitted, she certainly was a little worried
"I just did TRL today and Joel was there, and it was the first time we'd seen each other and it was so, like, nerve-racking," Duff, 19, told PEOPLE Monday at the 18th annual GLAAD Media Awards in New York City. "I knew that he was going to be there and he knew. It is what it is."
So was their run-in awkward? "It was a little strange at first, but I wish nothing but good for him and I know that he wishes the same for me," Duff told PEOPLE. "I'm happy and he's happy and I think that's all that counts."
We're impressed with Hilary's composure and positive attitude towards her ex, but this girl has so much going for her, we wouldn't be surprised if she finds a more fitting Joel replacement soon.
Judging by Paris and Josh's very public canoodling outside Koi last night, the two are going strong after their first week as a couple. Heck, Paris even took him to Vegas over the weekend (which really isn't saying much). The two seem like a match made in celebrity fake relationship heaven: She's famous, he wants to be. Elliot Mintz, however, disagrees that these are JOh's intentions , saying he "treats Paris with great respect and dignity. He is not a 'Hollywood guy.' Paris seems very comfortable around him." It doesn't seem like it takes much for Paris to feel comfortable around a guy, but best of luck to the new couple -- may their love last as long as they want the publicity!
On making her third album :"I think in order to really make something special and heartfelt I need to take time with it. I don't want to jeopardize the outcome by trying to rush through it to make the label happy because they have something to sell. I like to take a minute and get to know the woman that I've grown into from record to record. And for this one in particular I wanted to research and get into that whole world. I really wanted to explore it all, and just live it. Not just sing the songs, but really feel a part of it."
On being a strong woman in a man's world: "I'm extra sensitive and have my dukes up because I witnessed a lot of shit in my household with my father and mother, and I wanted to make sure that I was never going to feel powerless or helpless to a man. That's why I think I do have this overconfidence with my sexuality because I feel empowered by it, and I love being in control of every facet of what I do."
Kirsten and her new floopy-haired British boyfriend Johnny Borrell looked very outfit-coordinated while strolling through London the other day. Things are evidently getting pretty serious between the two who met while he was on tour with his band, Razorlight, in the states just a few weeks back. Friends says they are so enamored with each other that Johnny dumped his girlfriend and Kirsten joined the band on tour.
A source revealed: “This relationship is the real thing. They met when Johnny was touring the US and she followed him around like a lovesick puppy.
“She flew to Texas to join him at the South By South West festival then the band returned to Britain.
“But they hated being apart and on Friday she flew to London and is staying in his flat. No one is sure how long she will be here for. She’s filming in Europe soon so she could be in London a fair bit.”
Lindsay took some time out of her very busy schedule to pick up some trinkets in Chinatown the other day. She's back on the west coast which should help her stay away from her recently released from prison father. We know LL's life is complicated but this girl has serious Daddy issues. Lindsay is going through great measures to make sure Michael stays far away from her including having extra security so he didn't carsh one of her parties Now LL has reached out to her Dad but it's not the Daddy's little girl reunion he hoped for
Lindsay told him, "You still haven't changed. Don't go near my mother ever again," a source told Page Six. "It wasn't the phone call Michael wanted." Michael had hoped to patch things up with his daughter. But after talking to her dad, "Lindsay called her mother [Dina] and told her to be careful and to take care of her brother and sister," said our source.Michael blames all his troubles on a "con man" uncle, but we're sure he isn't any angel
Last week, the internet was abuzz with pics of Winona's Ryder's Bosom and judging from the way she was yanking up her top on set yesterday, she wants to make sure the girls don't make another web-ready appearance. Well, at least (as I can only assume she wants, though I don't know her personally) she's helping move away from Winona Ryder: Petty Thief, even if the next stop is Winona Ryder: Smoking Hot. And hey, that second once can't be too rough of a distinction, right? Really, though, she can't hold her own umbrella?
Julia and Danny were looking perfectly eco-friendly this weekend in Malibu with him filling up the Prius and her holding a bunch of wildflowers. Yet, that's only the beginning! The family is in the process of building a completely enviro-friendly home in Malibu, just in time for their new baby. The $20 million house will be solar-powered, built with wood from sustainably managed forests; even the bathrooms will have recycled tiles. Julia has been environmentally conscious since Erin Brockovich, but she recently told Life & Style that little Phinneus and Hazel have made her care even more
"Motherhood is the big reason I started thinking more critically about the environment and global warming."
Once she's done with the house, Julia plans to turn her focus to fuel. "I have a hybrid car, but I want something that runs on vegetable oil," she says, "I think it's a small price to pay to smell like a french fry!"
While the environment certainly needs help from everyone, it's great to have such caring super stars like Julia doing her part to make the world a cleaner place.
Why must stars be so stupid?
Can't they afford cabs or drivers?
