What would a week in Hollywood be without gratuitous nudity, bikini selfies and genetically blessed bubs? Here are my highlights …
>> To promote the seventh and final season of True Blood, stars Stephen Moyer and Anna Paquin have struck a raunchy pose for the new Entertainment Weekly cover.
The real-life couple cuddle in a coffin, with Paquin nude. Not quite sure why Moyer has all HIS clothes on … so here’s an oldie but a goodie to even the score …
In the season premiere, Paquin’s character hooks up with Joe Manganiello and discusses with EW what it was like to film a love scene in front of her husband of four years.
“It’s not as awkward as you would think,” she said. “If you were to picture the perfect day at work for your spouse, would that be it? Probably not, but this is just kind of how it’s always been. So it doesn’t feel as bizarre.”
Moyer, who directed the premiere, said: “There are moments where I’ll be watching the monitor [and say] ‘Oh, Joe, just move your hand up towards Anna’s breast. And can you move your thumb just a little bit towards her nipple? Great.’ And then I’ll go ‘Babe, babe, enjoy it.’ I’m certainly talking to her as ‘babe.’ ‘Darling, go for it, yeah, feel the nipple.'”
>> Anna Paquin isn’t the only one stripping off. American Pie star Jason Biggs has posed nude to promote his wife’s new book.
He shared photos on Instagram of himself lying in bed with Jenny Mollen’s book of essays, I Like You Just The Way I Am, strategically opened across his lap.
“My book, I Like You Just The Way I Am is out TODAY! Please get a copy so this guy can afford clothes,” his wife joked on her Instagram page.
Jason regrammed the photo, captioning it: “Do you read? Have a sense of humor? Not have a stick up ur a**? Get @jennyandteets hilariously raunchy I LIKE YOU JUST THE WAY I AM out now!”
He added: “Full disclosure: @jennyandteets is my wife. I want you to buy her book so I can stop making American Pie movies.”
>> Hugh Jackman wandered around Disney World in Florida last weekend to get into character for his latest role as Blackbeard in Peter Pan.
He took a few happy snaps along the way, captioning the one above: “Blackbeard everywhere I look!”
Later he wrote: “They won’t let BB on the ride ….I will have my revenge!!”
>> Former American Idol star Kelly Clarkson has given birth to her first child, a girl called River Rose.
“Our baby girl River Rose Blackstock arrived on June 12th!” Clarkson tweeted. “Thank you everyone for all of your well wishes! Brandon and I are on cloud 9!! :)”
>> According to The Hollywood Reporter, Harrison Ford may be out of action from filming Star Wars: Episode VII for up to eight weeks after being injured on set. He was airlifted to the trauma unit at John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford last week after the door of the Millennium Falcon fell on him.
“Harrison Ford’s left leg was broken in an accident. His surgery was successful and he will begin rehab shortly. He’s doing well and looks forward to returning to work,” his rep tells PEOPLE magazine.
>> Destiny’s Child singer Kelly Rowland debuted her baby bump on Instagram in a shot showing her meditating on a yoga mat. She and her manager husband Tim Witherspoon are expecting their first child together.
>> Lara Bingle continues to tease her Instagram followers about her marital status. First she posed at makeshift altar on a Western Australian beach and captioned the pic ‘here comes the bride, all dressed in bikini.’
Then boyfriend Sam Worthington called her his ‘wife’ during an altercation with a photographer in New York’s West Village in February.
Now she’s posted an Instagram pic of herself wearing a ring. She captioned it: “Thank you my friend for the lovely present @tamilapurvis – Ring by @immortalia_maniamania @themaniamania #maniamaniafine.”
>> Now here’s a weird friendship: Courtney Love has posted a pic of herself with Mariah Carey on her Instagram, captioned: “Love you”
>> Have to admit these pics make me feel a bit uncomfortable, they seem forced and ick somehow … Jennifer Hudson, who famously lost eighty pounds, has posed for bikini shots while on holidays. She captioned them: “It would take mexico to get me to play on the beach! I’m so not that girl! But I work hard, I deserve it right! Plus, I earned it!”
>> Jerry Seinfeld has posed for his first selfie while on holiday with wife Jessica in Greece.
Jessica captioned the shot: “Jerry’s First Selfie. Ugh. Stop. #greeceistheword.”

>> Michael Douglas has opened up to People magazine about rebuilding his relationship with Catherine Zeta-Jones.
“A lot of it has to do with age,” the 69-year-old actor told the magazine. “When you’ve accomplished a certain amount in your career, you’re not so focused on your ambitions. It makes you appreciate — and hopefully you do that sooner rather than later — the value of your partner.”
He added: “Like a lovely orchid, or anything else that’s nurtured, marriage prospers and grows, but if it’s ignored, it withers.”
>> Jude Law and Sadie Frost‘s 17-year-old son Rafferty Law made his catwalk debut at the DKNY menswear show in London on Sunday and now he’s appeared in his first fashion spread, in D Section. It appears he’s inherited his parents good genes …
