It was the weekend of the celebrity confession, with Tom Cruise forced to admit the real reason Katie left him; Jennifer Lawrence revealing her thoughts on body image; and Cher letting loose on the X-rated night she shared with Salvador Dali …
Cher & Salvador Dali did WHAT together?
The Guardian‘s Rebecca Nicholson has interviewed Cher and asked: “Is it true that [Salvador] Dalí gave [you] a vibrator?”
“This is a complicated story. So, Salvador [Dali] invited me and Francis Coppola and Sonny [Bono, her ex-husband] and my girlfriend Joey to dinner. And so we got to the apartment and they’d been having an orgy in the other room. People were in different stages of undress, but mostly dressed. They were staggering around and speaking French, just crazy, you know? So I have my hand on the chair and I see something in the crack, and it’s a beautiful, painted rubber fish. Just fabulous. It has this little remote-control handset, and I’m playing with it, and the tail is going back and forth, and I’m thinking it’s a child’s toy. So I said to Salvador: ‘This is really funny.’ And he said [she puts on a deep, comedy Spanish voice]: ‘It’s wonderful when you place it on your clitoris.”
Alright then. Moving right along …
Tom confesses why Katie REALLY left him
Tom Cruise has admitted that Katie Holmes divorced him to protect their daughter Suri.
The 51-year-old actor initially exploded with anger in court – during his $50million lawsuit against Bauer magazines for suggesting he abandoned his daughter – when asked if Katie left him “in part to protect Suri from Scientology.”
Tom first responded that he found the question “offensive,” saying, “there is no need to protect my daughter from my religion.” But when lawyers pushed the question again, asking if his ex-wife ever indicated that she left because of the religion or because she wanted to protect their daughter from Scientology, Cruise responded:
“Did she say that? That was one of the assertions, yes.”
He also admitted that his 7-year-old daughter is no longer a practicing member of the religion. The implications of his confession are huge since anyone who leaves the faith is considered a “Suppressive Person” and is cut off from all members of the church, including their immediate family.
UPDATE: Charlie’s custody battle
Brooke Mueller’s brother Scott has been awarded temporary guardianship of Charlie Sheen’s twin sons Bob and Max.
The decision came after Denise Richards relinquished guardianship of the four-year-old boys due to their “violent behaviour” towards her daughters and pets.
According to TMZ, the Department of Children And Family Services signed off in court on Scott becoming a guardian and he took charge of the children on Friday night. Scott and the children will reportedly be moving in with Brooke so they can stay at the same school.
Scott has also requested ‘$55,000 in child support’ from Sheen claim Radar.
“He expects to be paid, immediately, even though Charlie already pays for all of the boys expenses including their pre-school, doctors visits, etc. During the time that Denise Richards was their guardian, she didn’t ask Charlie for one dime in child support, she actually turned it down.”
Jennifer’s body love message
Jennifer Lawrence took part in a Tumblr live chat with Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer and her Catching Fire director Frances Lawrence last week, which included questions from the audience. The father of a young girl who has been judged because of her body wanted to know how the 23-year-old actress feels about the beauty standards Hollywood portrays. Her answer is simply inspiring.
“The world has this idea that if you don’t look like an airbrushed perfect model. You have to see past it. You look how you look, you have to be comfortable,” she said. “What are you going to do? Be hungry every single day to make other people happy? That’s just dumb.”
She went on to criticise TV shows such as E!’s Fashion Police.
‘There are shows like The Fashion Police that are just showing these generations of young people to judge people based on all the wrong values and that it’s OK to point at people and call them ugly or fat,” she said. “They call it “fun” and they say ‘welcome to the real world’ – and that shouldn’t be the real world, it’s going to continue being the real world if we keep it that way. We have to stop treating each other like that and stop calling each other fat.”
Margot: I’ve done nothing wrong
Aussie actress Margot Robbie has slammed rumors that she’s been getting up to no good with her married Focus costar Will Smith.
She tweeted: “Been working nonstop, just catching my breath. There’s absolutely no truth to the ridiculous rumor in Star mag. It’s disappointing that goofing around on set could be taken so out of context.”
The Cosby Show fans rejoice!
Bill Cosby has told Yahoo TV that he’s re-teamed with one of The Cosby Show producers Tom Werner to develop a family comedy that “would [satisfy] the people who have come to me in public places and said, ‘Can’t you put something on that I can watch?'”
The series won’t be a remake of The Cosby Show, but will feature older children and their relationships with their parents.
“I want to be able to deliver a wonderful show to [a] network,” said Cosby. “Because there is a viewership out there that wants to see comedy, and warmth, and love, and surprise, and cleverness, without going into the party attitude. They would like to see a married couple that acts like they love each other, warts and all, children who respect the parenting, and the comedy of people who make mistakes. Warmth and forgiveness. So I hope to get that opportunity, and I will deliver the best of Cosby, and that will be a series, I assume, that we could get enough people week after week after week to tune in to, to come along with us.”
Jen loves her new ‘do
Jennifer Aniston’s longtime hair colourist Michael Canale has revealed how her new style was created with co-hairdresser Chris McMillan.
“[McMillan] cut it short with an a-line back to it so it’s got the drop front, like Victoria Beckham but not so exaggerated,” the Canale Salon owner told Us Magazine. “We did it all natural. We didn’t use any toners on it. We just left it baby blonde, and I took a lot of the yellow out of the top section, then we re-blended the side.”
“[He] did the new look about two days ago and I did the new color about a week or a week and a half ago. And then we reemphasized the haircut,” Canale continued.
Arriving for the cut and dye job, Jen had her hair pinned to one side, so they strategically colored her locks so she could still use hair accessories afterward. “You can’t pony it because there’s no back section to it. You’d be using more of a barrette or a comb accessory or something like that,” Canale explained. “It’s basically a part highlight so it’s a heavy highlighting through the part, less highlights when you move toward the back section,” he added. “Instead of just those two big streaks in front, it moves from dark to lighter” for a “blonder front.”
When asked what Jen thought of her new look, Canale gushed: “[She said] ‘I love it’. You outdid yourself.'”
