Sharon Stone is on the set of a new movie which is clearly different then her slut role in Basic Instinct. She looks beyond fug. In fact, she looks so thin she looks sick. In the movie, which is called Rockett, she plays Jimmy Fallon's mom. Luckily Lucy Liu is also in the film so between Jimmy and Lucy there is still something attractive to look at on the big screen. I'm actually surprised Sharon took this role - she doesn't like people to think of her and old and this film will definitely not help her there.
Jen and Ben also celebrated their 2nd anniversary today, and while we heard they were planning a pretty quiet day at home , we think this is a much better option - how cute are they riding side by side on the same wave?
Kate Hudson is spending her pre-Independence Day weekend in romantic Paris, hanging out with billionaire Ron Burkle. She is always so darn cute -- even when she looks like she's draped in a blanket. Who knows whether there's anything going on there, but at least he's probably taking her out for some pret-ty nice meals!
Penelope Cruz was looking cool and casual as she roamed the streets of Soho yesterday. Unfortunately, it sounds like the rest of her day wasn't quite so breezy. Apparently Penelope had a problem on a flight to Barcelona last night and had to get off the plane shortly after it left the gate in Newark. Some say she freaked out and may have had a panic attack, while her rep claims that Penelope just wanted to wait out a storm in the area
Jessica Simpson scored her very own creepy wax figure at Madame Tussad's in NYC this week. The statue reminds us of that famous RollingStone cover, but it has been upgraded to her with a microphone in her hand.
Jess doesn't seem to have much time for her music these days now that she's trying to become a Major Movie Star, and she's just announced that she will launch a new fragrance in July 2008. We doubt she has given up singing completely, but in the meantime she will continue to expand her empire into the fragrance world.
Okay, ostensibly these photos are the same as every other set of Brad, Zahara and Pax going to school in Prague, but (BUT), these are of the last day of school. So that (probably) means that these are the FINAL ONES EVER. Nooooooooo! Plus, these ones are special(ish) because Pax has some cool new shades. So goodbye, Walk To School In Prague With Lovely Green Background, we hardly knew ye. Sigh, remember the first time we saw a Jolie-Pitt go to school in Prague? Feels like yesterday.
- First of all, we can exclusively report that the infamous letter was not written by an "out-of-state lawyer," as some sites reported, but rather was penned by Britney herself! It was a warning that Britney would file a restraining order if her mother didn't stay away from Sean and Jayden.
- And why might Britney be so mistrustful of her mom's intentions? Well, according to our source, the big reason is Britney's anger over her mom Lynne shopping around a tell-all book which Britney's specifically asked her not to write! But that's hardly all - in addition to being generally suspicious of her mom using the children as a pretext to visit Kevin and conspire against her, Britney's said to be very angry about Lynne's continuing (business) relationship with her old manager Larry Rudolph!
- It was Larry Rudolph, as you'll remember, that Britney blamed for putting her in rehab ealier this year. Our source says drug tests came back negative and that Britney had absolutely nothing in her system when she was admitted to Promises.
- And we're getting confirmation that the motivation for Britney shaving her head was Kevin threatening to have her drug tested and telling her that marijuana use would show up in hair samples even though she didn't "inhale" but was around Kevin when he did. Britney was so worried about losing her kids, she got rid of the evidence during a particularly emotional night.
- Speaking of Britney's management, we can also report that Britney's going to be changing agents - she's making the jump from William Morris to CAA! Could this be tied to her rumored desire to renew her film career?
- Finally, and most titilatingly, we're hearing that Britney may be off the market! According to our source, Britney's become "very good friends" with an unidentified very wealthy man, and that she and Alli have been spending a lot of time hanging out with him! Apparently, he's been her make the aforementioned business decisions - in addition to prompting her to make the switch from William Morris to CAA, he's also helped her settle on a new divorce lawyer!)
Aside from that, Britney's life's been more or less on an even keel - we hear that she's been spending a lot of time with her children and keeping her relationship with sisJamie-Lynn positive even as their family endures these trying times.
Nonetheless, multiple sources say Federline threatened to go public by going to court to wrestle custody from her if she didn't go to rehab. Sources say Spears could not withstand the pressure from her mom, Federline and Ruldolph, and checked into Promises last February 20.
We're told eventually the professionals believed Spears suffered from post-partum depression, made worse because she stopped taking Prozac. She was also emotionally crumbling because of a messy divorce and intense media scrutiny.
After leaving Promises, as paparazzi waited for the golden shot of Britney drinking again, she began getting angry that she was at a rehab facility in the first place. Britney and her assistant, Allie Sims, called Promises multiple times, asking for a copy of the report showing that she tested dirty for drugs and/or alcohol when she checked in.
We're told it took several days to get an answer. Only two reports were sent to Britney's rep, both showing no drug or alcohol use whatsoever. Most shocking, the first report was dated March 7, 15 days after Britney checked in.
Sources say one of Britney's reps then called the facility and asked for any evidence of a dirty test, but she was told there was nothing in the file. The question -- if the first test was taken more than two weeks after Britney checked in, how could they treat her if they didn't know the problem?
Britney fired Rudolph and has now drawn a line in the sand with her mom. As for Federline, we're told he's threatened to go to court and question Britney's fitness as a mom every time there's a disagreement. Spears, who is extremely protective, does not want to expose her kids to a public battle, so she's caved on many of his demands.
We're told Britney's legal team has repeatedly asked to have a "private" judge handle disputes in a private office (that's the M.O. of her divorce lawyer, Laura Wasser, in celeb divorce cases), away from the cameras, but Federline has insisted that everything be handled at the L.A. County Courthouse, where the media could record their comings and goings.
TMZ spoke with Dr. Donna Markus at Promises but she said, because of patient confidentiality, her facility had no comment.
Larry Rudolph and Lynne Spears could not be reached for comment.
Federline's lawyer, Mark Vincent Kaplan, says, "When one person in a divorce has great means and influence, and the other much less so, leaving the case in the public system makes that person more comfortable that they'll be on a level playing field as the case is heard."

We may not understand most of the words in this spread that Mischa did for Italian Vogue, but we certainly recognize the words "very chic" - and we couldn't agree more. Mischa looks fabulously old Hollywood sprawled out in these gorgeous dresses
Posh and David made their way through Heathrow airport in some seriously eye-catching headgear yesterday - yikes what is that yellow mess? These two have always been quite the world travelers and now that The Spice Girls have made their reunion tour official, it looks like Posh will be doing a lot more traveling. David will be busy taking care of their boys, and playing in LA and now he has a new task - he's got godfather duties to fulfill. His long time friend Davinia Taylor has just made David and Kate Moss the godparents of her brand new baby boy. One famous supermodel and one soccer superstar - not a bad set of godparents if you ask us
Bruce headed down to DC to generously donate some of his Live Free Or Die Hard memorabilia to the Smithsonian National Museum of History. The museum is now the lucky owner of a dirty t-shirt Bruce wore in the original Die Hard movie, along with some other, more recent props. It will be on display with the likes of R2D2 and C3PO from Star Wars , and the ruby slippers Judy Garland wore in The Wizard of Oz. Tallulah and Rumer were there to support dear old dad, continuing to let us know what a close family they all are. It's great to see them all together, but we're starting to wonder what happened to Scout?
The Web bio was changed early Monday to say the pro wrestler missed a match over the weekend because his wife had died. Hours later, authorities found the bodies of the World Wrestling Entertainment star, his wife and their 7-year-old son.
Cary Bass of Wikipedia traced the alteration to somebody using an internet protocol address registered in Stamford, Conn., the home base of World Wrestling Entertainment, according to the Associated Press.
An IP address, however, doesn’t have to be broadcast from its registration location. Bass said it was unknown where the posting was sent from, the AP reports.
The bodies were found in the family’s suburban Atlanta home. Authorities say Benoit asphyxiated his wife Nancy and their son Daniel before hanging himself.
A source that used to work for Brittany Murphy has reportedly said that Brittany is convinced that “a high-powered Hollywood player” is stalking her.
“When he came back, he had head injuries,” says the former insider. “He was pale and sometimes had trouble standing.” Not only that, but the former staffer also claims Murphy said she was unable to pay him because the money had been used for ransom … Monjack, a screenwriter, is not short of enemies. Several anonymous sources have posted unflattering stories on the Internet about his past relationships. On June 13, a man identifying himself as Arturo Globenfeldt posted a message on Monjack’s Imdb.com page claiming he owes him $16 million in film investment money.Source: NY Post
The country of Germany had officially banned Tom Cruise from filming in their country, because he's a Scientology freak!
"I said a lot of negative things that were never reported, but there was one word that caught everyone’s attention, particularly someone who wasn’t even in the room with us. It was a fight between two men that shouldn’t have happened. But someone heard the booming voice of a black man and got really scared and that was the beginning of the end for me. I see that now, but I didn’t then."
"If a black man can’t get forgiveness in this country, when so many other people like Robert Downey Jr. and the governor of California get second and third chances … I think that says a lot about race and this country where we stand."
My mother had several cross-dressing friends who she sometimes referred to with names I’d never use, but she didn’t know any better. There was no hate, just lack of awareness."
"That’s what’s hurt me so much with all this. I was doing what I’m doing in Africa for years—before Angelina and Bono. But I’ve worked at homeless shelters for years and given money to make sure people knew they didn’t have to be hungry or the street. I have shared my blessings, but all that changed when this happened and it’s truly heartbreaking for me.’’
"Well, it didn’t help me on the set that I was a black man who wasn’t a mush-mouth Negro walking around with his head in his hands all the time. I didn’t speak like I’d just left the plantation and that can be a problem for people sometime."
"Both Katie and the baby are healthy and happy, and will be spending the next few days resting in hospital."

Britney's life always seems like it's full of some sort of drama, and rumor has it that this afternoon the issuses she's been having with her mom came to a head. She drove up to where her mother was in Ventura, CA (side note: does Lynne live in a trailer? I'm confused) to hand deliver what was supposedly a letter from Britney's lawyer -- though not the restraining order we've all heard rumblings about. I gotta say that even with no sound Britney seems like she's being bratty. Who knows what the full story is, or what the letter had to say, but TMZ is reporting that Britney's been angry at Lynne since a few days before heading off to rehab and that she thinks her mom is "unstable" and has "issues." Pot, Kettle, Black.
In other Britney news, Kevin is supposedly refusing to sign the divorce papers until she proves that she's fit for their 50/50 custody deal. Hey, who knows, maybe Brit was visiting her mom to show her something about that mess. Not jumping to conclusions just yet.
We first noticed about 3 months ago that Mandy was spending a lot of time with singer Greg Laswell , and now we're pretty sure they're an item. Despite looking super cute on the arm of John Kransinski and letting all of her exes listen to her music, it's pretty clear from these hand holding shots that Mandy's got a new man in her life. She's always seemed like such a sweetheart, so we hope she's happier now than when she was with Zach Braff.
