Here I was thinking things would get quiet in Hollywood over Easter. I was so wrong …
Gasp! Gwyneth lets her kids eat junk
She’s been slammed for letting her children feel a “specific hunger” whenever she bans carbs from the family’s diet, but Gwyneth Paltrow has revealed in the latest issue of Goop that her kids do eat junk.
“I tried to start them off with all of the right foods but as they got older, the lure of Oreos and cotton candy outweighed the lure of carrots with hummus. And that’s all a part of childhood and I love Oreos too, so I completely understand. I try to make sure that what is on their plate at home is nutritious and tasty and then I loosen way up on the reigns when we are out. They love a brown rice stir-fry but they also love their ‘Coke of the week’. My daughter gravitates toward fresh fruit and raw nuts but will inhale a bag of hot Cheetos at the airport. It’s all about balance.”
Coke of the week?
A bub for Jeremy
Jeremy Renner is a dad! The Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters star and his ex-girlfriend welcomed a baby girl last week.
News that he was going to be a dad broke at the Golden Globes in January when he was overheard telling Eva Longoria that “I’m going to fly in when her water breaks” and Eva replied, ‘I’m so blown away.'”
Jeremy’s ex lived at his Los Angeles home as they awaited the arrival of their firstborn.
“Jeremy Renner and girlfriend Sonni Pacheco have confirmed that they are the parents of a 7 lb. daughter Ava Berlin Renner,” his rep says. “They are beyond thrilled,” the rep says of Renner and Pacheco. “Mother and daughter are doing great.”
Kim’s crazy baby name
While prompting her new movie, Temptation on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno Kim Kardashian has revealed her baby name plans and denied reports she’d name her little girl anything silly like “North”. Nooo, she has something much better in mind – Easton West.
I have two problems with the above paragraph – Kim Kardashian has a new movie coming out and who the hell thinks it’s a good idea to name their kid that?
“We have a list, and some of them are K names some of them aren’t,” she said. “[North] is not on our list. But you know what name I do like – but it probably won’t be on [our list], because it kinda goes with North – I like Easton. Easton West. I think that’s cute.”
As for the movie, Kim plays an employee working in a matchmaker’s office alongside co-stars Vanessa Williams, Lance Gross, Robbie Jones and Brandy Norwood.
On a more sensible note, she had this to say about critics who’ve called her “fat”: “I think it’s a little bully-ish to call a pregnant woman fat. I mean, what do you expect? I hope I gain weight. I’m a little heavy,” Kim said. “There’s just more to love right now. I have the rest of my life to be skinny and to lose weight and I’m not really worrying about it. If I have a craving I’ll go for it.”
Helena: Leave Kim alone!
Helena Christensen has defended Kim Kardashian in an open letter to the Huffington Post.
“It is disgusting and despicable the way that certain media constantly harass the pregnant Kim Kardashian,” the former supermodel writes. “It’s enough that they persistently project a negative focus on women’s physical shapes; but a public bullying and attacking of a pregnant woman because of her growing shape is just lower than low.”
“There should be some moral compass,” she continues. “It doesn’t matter who the woman is or what she does. No one should ever be publicly judged for their body, but to attack an expecting mother is sacrilegious and just plain wrong. A pregnant woman should not be criticized for her shape, period!!”
Lindsay’s down and out in Brazil
Just when you thought Lindsay Lohan was back on the straight and narrow, a Twitter pic like this appears …
According to reports, Lindsay was partying in a nightclub in Brazil and some patrons wanted to have their photos taken with her. She refused and hid under the table with all the cigarette butts.
In other oh-no-she-didn’t news – Lindsay Lohan has been acccused of stealing from the set of Anger Management.
According to TMZ she left with 2 bracelets, a necklace, sunglasses, a pair of shoes, gold earrings, a silk bathrobe, lingerie and tap shorts: “She claims the wardrobe person was well aware she had the goods and claims the wardrobe lady specifically said it was A-OK and the cost would be deducted from her salary.
“Here’s the problem. Sources from the show tell TMZ … Lindsay walked off with the bracelets, the necklace, earrings and shoes BEFORE there was any discussion about leaving with the stuff. We’re told the wardrobe person told producers she was not going to become a cop and block Lindsay from leaving the set with her stuff, so she told her the value of ‘all missing items’ would be deducted from her paycheck.”
And her model behaviour on the set from the first day didn’t continue: “Multiple sources on the set tell TMZ Lindsay was `the biggest prima donna ever on Anger Management.’ We’re told she showed up 2 hours late the second day, refused to come out of her trailer for 2 hours, left early to go clubbing and threatened not to return.”
Harry’s uncle passes away
The actor who played Harry Potter’s Uncle Vernon has passed at the age of 65.
Richard Griffiths died at the University Hospital Coventry from complications after heart surgery.
Daniel Radcliffe, who starred with Richard in Harry Potter and on stage in Equus, released a statement saying: “Richard was by my side during two of the most important moments of my career. I was proud to know him.”
Justin’s latest run-in with the law
Headlines that make you go hmmm … People magazine reports “Justin Bieber busted after sneaking monkey into Germany”.
And you just go wha?
German customs officials seized a capuchin monkey from the singer last week after he attempted to bring it into the country on his private plane.
“Justin Bieber brought his monkey to Germany, but had no official paperwork with him,” Thomas Meister, spokesman for the customs office at the Franz Josef Strauss Airport in Munich, told People. “We were forced to confiscate the animal.”
Beyonce kicks off her Mrs Carter World Tour in two weeks in Belgrade, Serbia – and she has a very special place reserved backstage for daughter Blue Ivy, 14 months.
The singer shared an Instagram shot of two matching director’s chairs: one grown-up sized, which reads “The Mrs Carter World Tour”. the other custom-made for her daughter that reads “BIC.”
