Hollywood’s a funny old place. In some ways it feels so real – celebrities having babies, showing off their bubs and their hospital wristbands – then they go and remind you they’re in La-La Land with their outlandish revelations about what they do to stay in shape … Welcome to another crazy celebrity weekend.
Justin crushes Jen (and her wedding plans)
Forget all those reports of trouble in paradise for Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux – she says they haven’t even set a date for their wedding, so they can’t have cancelled it.
“We just want to do it when it’s perfect, and we’re not rushed, and no one is rushing from a job or rushing to a job,” she told the Associated Press while promoting her latest film, We’re the Millers. “And, you know, we already feel married.”
Details of the delay, she adds, have been incorrectly reported. “We have yet to set any date,” says Aniston, who accepted Theroux’s marriage proposal last August after dating for more than a year. “There have been no canceled weddings. There have been no postponed weddings. There have been no arguments about where to get married. Just clearing all that up.”
And they couldn’t get married right now even if they wanted to, because Jen can’t wear wedding shoes.
“I have a broken toe,” she also told E! News. “Not to out my sweet, sweet fiancé, but he has big feet and wears these boots. He stepped on my toe. Broke it. I felt it.”
Jaime’s beautiful bump
Hart of Dixie star Jaime King has shared a photo of her bump on Instagram: “Backyard Summer with baby and father.”
It’s Jaime’s first bub, she’s previously said she wants at least three kids.

Glee cast honours Cory
The Glee cast and crew have mourned their friend Cory Monteith at a memorial service, where they shared “memories and music in an emotional celebration of [his] life,” according to a statement from Twentieth Century Fox. The venue itself — Paramount Studios — brought added emotion to the tribute; it’s where the cast films the show’s auditorium scenes.
“They were somber,” a source told People magazine of the 150 or so attendees. “There were a lot of production staff and crew too and most everyone was dressed in black.” Most of the mourners also wore black ribbons in Monteith’s honor.
“It was beautiful,” Jane Lynch told TMZ. “I’m still really sad, but it was beautiful. Nice to all be together again.”
Among the gathered castmates, Lea Michele inarguably bears the greatest burden of grief. After all, she lost not just a dear friend, but the love of her life. Yet she’s shown remarkable strength in the weeks since Monteith was found dead of a drug overdose in a Vancouver hotel room.
According to some reports, Michele has been grieving so deeply that she’s experienced anxiety attacks and has kept her distance from castmates. Yet she has still managed to help make decisions that affect her colleagues, urging Glee creator Ryan Murphy to resume production, and taking the lead in planning the memorial service where the group could remember their friend together. “I’ve never, ever met a 26-year-old girl or boy who’s capable of doing what she’s done in the past week,” Murphy told TV Line about Michele.
After the service, Kevin McHale, Dianna Agron, Darren Criss, Jenna Ushkowitz, Harry Shum Jr, Vanessa Lengies, and Jacob Artist were spotted having lunch at A.O.C. restaurant. Since Monteith’s death, many of his castmates have expressed their sadness over Twitter. And over the last few days, even more have tweeted about their grief and their healing process.
“I’ll never forget all the laughs we shared or the faces we made after awkward interview questions,” Chris Colfer said in an Instagram message. “Love and miss you, buddy.”
“Cory always reminded me to be gracious, kind and open, and he will leave a mark in my heart forever,” Jenna Ushkowitz wrote on Instagram. “Thank you everyone for your constant support and love while we mourn the loss of our dear friend, and continued support to Cory’s family, and to Lea.”
Clearly, Cory will be deeply missed.
Mag editor stands trial for topless Kate pics
The editor of French magazine Closer, Laurence Pieau, has been formally charged for breaching France’s privacy laws by publishing photos of the Duchess of Cambridge sunbathing topless.
According to Yahoo! France, Pieau was arrested earlier in July and will now stand trial with publishing director Ernesto Mauri and at least two photographers.
The photos were taken while Kate was sunbathing topless at Chateau d’Autet in Provence, France in September 2012.
After publish the photos, Pieau told Agence France-Press: “These photos are not in the least shocking,” she said at the time. “They show a young woman sunbathing topless, like the millions of women you see on beaches.”
Daddy advice from Hugh to Jimmy
Talk show host Jimmy Fallon has a new baby daughter, Winnie Rose (above). Isn’t she a cutie! Just a day after she was born, Hugh Jackman was a guest on Jimmy’s show and said he was honored to be his “first interview with no sleep”.
He also told him some harsh truths, such as that he’s unlikely to see a new movie again anytime soon and he shouldn’t expect to be organised.
Jimmy meanwhile said he finally knew why his mother had kept her hospital bracelet from the day he was born – proudly displaying his own “inky, gross, sweaty thing that I won’t take off”…
“It’s been a crazy couple of days — well, actually, just one day,” he joked in his opening monologue. “It was just yesterday. It feels like I’ve had a four day conference.”
Fancy Miley Cyrus on top of you naked?
OK, bad joke …
The singer appears nude on a new collection of T-shirts from Marc Jacobs and Robert Duffy with the slogan: “Protect the Skin You’re In.”
The T-shirts cost $35 each, with proceeds to the NYU Cancer Institute and NYU Langone Medical Center.
Miley’s pretty stoked about people wearing her naked form. She tweeted: “Who’s gettin my #protecttheskinyourein Tee from @MarcJacobsIntl ❤❤❤. Don’t worry Europe! My #protecttheskinyourein T’s are coming next month @MarcJacobsIntl so happy to help YOU help SO MANY ❤❤❤.”
And the new Batman is …
There’s been loads of speculation about who the next Batman will be after Christian Bale announced he was done with the franchise.
Among the names being touted are Teen Wolf star Tyler Hoechlin and Ryan Gosling.
But we’d like to add a wildcard to the list – Beyoncé!
The singer has posted a pic to Tumblr of herself sporting a Batman mask, mimicking the Caped Crusader’s steely gaze.
A few years ago Beyonce told the Los Angeles Times: “I want to do a superhero movie and what would be better than Wonder Woman? It would be great. And it would be a very bold choice. A black Wonder Woman would be a powerful thing. It’s time for that, right?”
How about a black Batman Bey?
Redbook and Kristen keep it real (kind of)
The editor of Redbook magazine, Jill Herzig, has written a piece for Huffington Post admitting she’s been part of the post-baby body pack that have been shaming pregnant women.
But she says she’s changed her colours with her latest as-yet-unreleased cover featuring Kristen Bell, photographed 11 weeks after her daughter, Lincoln, was born.
“In our shot she is comfortable, clear-eyed and lovely. She is also, by her estimation, 15 pounds away from her pre-pregnancy weight. She gained a very normal 43 lbs with Lincoln, and when we spoke to her she was pleased that healthy eating (extra fruits, veggies and protein shakes) paired with low-impact exercise (Bar Method classes and workout DVDs), plus breast-feeding, had taken care of 28 lbs. The rest, she told us, didn’t worry her:
`I’m going to continue working out and see where it goes. I’d like to get back down to where I was before the baby… but if this is where my body wants to be, so be it. I’m not going to make myself miserable for the rest of my life trying to get back to where I was before.’
“After all, her adorable partner, Dax Shepard, was loving her a little heavier. All during the pregnancy, `all he did was tell me how much he loved me chubby,’ she told us. `He even asked me to stay chubby after the baby was born.’
“Full disclosure: We moved this cover from August to September when Lincoln was born a little later than expected. I counted the weeks to our cover shoot and rescheduled to give Kristen more time. I didn’t want Redbook to be part of the media meat grinder that pressures a new mother to torch off the weight while she’s also feeding and caring for a newborn. Those first few weeks are grueling enough without trying to eliminate carbs, too. ”
Good for her. But I kinda think someone as svelte as Kristen isn’t really the one to get all ra-ra about. After all, the pic above of Kristen hula-hooping was taken on the set of Veronica Mars on June 17 (she gave birth of March 28).
Michael J. Fox is BACK
Michael J. Fox has returned to a regular TV series after a break of 12 years in September – and it’s in a role he’s very familiar with – a dad with Parkinson’s disease who decides to go back to work after taking time out.
The actor left his hit series Spin City in 2001 to spend more time with his family and seek a cure for Parkinson’s disease, which he was diagnosed with in 1991. But after filming guest spots on shows including The Good Wife, Boston Legal and Rescue Me he was itching to return to a show of his own.
“It’s what I love to do and it’s what I’ve enjoyed throughout my life. And I just thought, ‘Why can’t I?'” he says.
Keeping his family close, his real-life wife and former Family Ties co-star, Tracy Pollan, just filmed a guest role.
“Tracy actually just did an episode of the show and she was great,” he says.
He also hinted there might be more appearances by Family Ties and Spin City co-stars.
“As characters come up we’ll certainly mine old friendships and work to get them involved,” he said. “I think that would be great.”
Ever wondered what it takes to be a Vogue cover model?
Katy Perry has confessed on the Jay Leno show that her preparation to appearance on the cover of US Vogue’s July issue was pretty intense.
“I did a lot of my own prepping,” she said. “I kind of went on a cleanse, I did a lot of stuff like vitamins and supplements, I changed my coffee to green tea, I didn’t drink alcohol for three months. I was really in the zone, I just wanted to be glowing for that cover.”
Ah, well, that counts me out. Oh, that’s right, I wasn’t in.
And we’re not just talking about popping a multi-vitamin each morning, as this TwitPic she posted in May proves.
Downton baby photos released
Photos of Dowton Abbey widow and widower Lady Mary and Branson with their bubs have been released to promote season 4 of the series.
And I either hadn’t realised or had forgotten that Lady Mary’s son is called George. Combine that with the Royal baby and I think we can expect George to race straight to the top of the most popular baby names list next year.
The new series of Downton will be filled with new characters including Daisy Lewis as Sybil’s new nanny, Paul Giamatti as Cora’s brother Harold Levinson and Gary Carr as jazz singer Jack Ross. Tom Cullen, Nigel Harman, Dame Harriet Walter, Joanna David, Julian Ovenden and Dame Kiri Te Kanawa will also make appearance. Shirley MacLaine will also return to the period drama.
The tragic secret life of Psy
You’d think he’d be on top of the world with his massive hit Gangnam Style, but Psy has confessed he has a drinking problem.
He told the Sunday Times Magazine: “If I’m happy, I’m drinking, if I’m sad, I’m drinking. If it’s raining, I’m drinking, if it’s sunny, I’m drinking.”
Psy describes Korean vodka is his “best friend” and his “vice partner”. He’ll also drink “whisky, vodka, tequila, whatever,”
The only time he isn’t drinking? “When I’m hungover.”
He alludes to the reason for his habit being an abusive father.
