A woman named Gigi Goyette spoke to Extra's Jerry Penacoli and maintained that she, like Mildred Patricia Pierce, was also Arnold Schwarzenegger's lover. She said she and Arnold "experienced many intimate encounters" together while the bodybuilder was married to his wife, Maria Shriver, but that they first met on a beach in Malibu in the 70s, before he was married. She was 16 years old and he was 27, and she said he was "very charming and had a special way with women. He has this overpowering way with women that you get weak." Gigi said that because Arnold was so smooth, he was "pretty much" (?) the first person she ever had sex with.
Ten years after they first met and after Arnold got married, Gigi was working at his Annual Fitness Convention in Ohio. This resulted in Arnold and Gigi reconnecting and meeting for "secret romps," and there were a bunch of times where she and Arnold would bodybuild in the same hotel that Maria and his children were staying in.
Does Gigi think Arnold has been with other women besides she, Maria and Mildred? Why yes, she does! She said, "Arnold is a very physical and sexual man, with a voracious appetite that likes a lot of physical attention." So how can one woman be tasked with dealing with all that voracious appetite? What a burden that must be! No wonder there are all these Gigis lined up in a row!

The French movie legend will unveil the tribute next week (08Dec09). Her piece of pavement sits between the stars of her mentor Gene Kelly and Gigi co-star Louis Jordan.
Caron was championed for the honour by Neal Baer, the executive producer of TV show Law and Order: SVU, for which the actress won a guest star Emmy in 2007.
The GiGi star was five years older than Beatty when she left her husband to romance the Hollywood Lothario and when he started working on the classic heist movie, she felt sure she'd play his leading lady.
In her new memoir, Thank Heaven, Caron recalls, "He told me bluntly, 'Let's face it, you're too old for me.' That hurt.
"But now that 40-plus years have passed and the pain of Warren's rejection has worn off, I can smile at his raw ambition and ruthlessness."
The pair joins stars including lifestyle queen Martha Stewart and celebrated American astronomer Carl Sagan for the new AOL series - which will also feature shows about arts and science.
Bundchen's GiGi & the Green Team and business mogul Buffett's Secret Millionaire's Club are scheduled to debut online this autumn (09).
Like Love Actually and any number of other ensemble romantic comedies in which we watch a starry cast navigate their way through the treacherous world of romantic relationships He's Just Not That Into You -- based on the Sex and the City catch-phrase and very loosely on the resulting self-help book of the same name -- focuses on a select group of twenty- and thirtysomethings who find love is just not easy to find and hang on to in the Internet age. Here’s the scorecard: Neil (Ben Affleck) loves his seven year live-in girlfriend Beth (Jennifer Aniston) just not enough to marry her; while Beth (Jennifer Connelly) forced marriage on Ben (Bradley Cooper) before he was ready and now he’s seriously flirting with seductress. Anna (Scarlett Johansson) who’s kinda bored with her occasional sex partner Conor (Entourage’s Kevin Connolly) who would love to get her to take him seriously. Then there’s sweet likeable and lovelorn Gigi (Ginnifer Goodwin) who hasn’t had the best of luck with men and takes advice from restaurant manager Alex (Justin Long) who constantly gives his perspective of the harsh realities of dating. Finally there’s good-natured Mary (Drew Barrymore) a newspaper ad sales exec who uses any number of new technologies to meet a man -- usually via her computer. The well-chosen cast is strong and likeable making the experience of seeing this overlong (at 129 minutes) romantic trifle enjoyable and fun. It’s great to see Connelly trying something lighter these days and as a wife whose marriage is slipping away she manages to be alternately funny and touching. Aniston scores in the teary scene department as a perpetual bridesmaid involved with a marriage-shy guy nicely underplayed by Affleck. Cooper is wryly funny in his wandering hubby role and Long’s romantic advice is dished out with sardonic style and wit. But it’s Goodwin who carries much of the load here and she’s endearing in her own way. Ken Kwapis knows his way around chick flicks having directed Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants among others and he shows he’s up to the challenge presented by the multi-character storyline – though at times it seems like he’s playing traffic cop just keeping the various parts merging into a whole that makes dramatic sense. None of it is earth-shatteringly original but as a date movie there’s more than enough to satisfy the girls -- and the guys.
Creating a scent on screen has long been thought to be impossible—but Perfume: The Story of a Murderer is an above-average effort triggering the raw emotions from smell without the gimmicks of 1950's Smell-O-Vision. Based on the best-selling novel by Patrick Suskind Perfume focuses on Jean-Baptiste Grenouille (Ben Whishaw) a weird dude who was born into filth and poverty amid the guts and vomit of an open-air French fish market. Although he has no human scent of his own Grenouille’s world-class sense of smell is able to penetrate people's skin—and he’s attracted to the female scent. Not in a sexual way mind you; he wants only to bottle it. When Grenouille meets fallen (but still legendary) perfumer Giuseppe Baldini (Dustin Hoffman) the younger sets out to titrate the most elusive perfume known to man: A woman's pheromones. Problem is women won't stay long enough so Grenoiulle can capture their scent and the young man ends up killing them. When Grenoiulle kills a powerful merchant's (Alan Rickman) daughter his execution is planned for a public square. Whishaw is the real star here but playing Grenouille may have proven a challenge for the young British actor since the character is beloved by fans of the best-selling novel. Whishaw is forced to go mute and inert as Grenoiulle his intensity focused inward with quiet gazes and mysterious intensity arousing doubt and fear. Grenouille is a man handsome in his youth but ultimately one we despise--or at least someone we wouldn’t want to hang out with. And for a change of pace a powdered rosy-cheeked Hoffman comes up smelling roses in this period thriller. As Baldini in costume flair the two-time Oscar winner does something quite different no longer just the colorful supporting player he’s been playing in light dramas such as Finding Neverland and Stranger Than Fiction. Baldini isn't one of Hoffman's best roles as Whishaw owns this film but it's a fun performance which pays attention to the actor’s pronounced proboscis. Rickman of Harry Potter fame is an enraged vengeful father. Natch. Perfume is director Tom Tykwer's first major commercial film since his 1998's go-go thriller Run Lola Run--and as a thriller Perfume is built around solid dialogue-driven scenes notably between Grenouille and Baldini. Apparently 57-year-old German writer Patrick Suskind refused for years to give up the rights to his book but producer Bernd Eichinger—the guy behind The Neverending Story's precocious 1980's futurism—finally won out. Nuggets of Suskind’s literary wisdom only enhance the movie's continuity and realism scattered incrementally to remind us we're watching an intelligently conceived film. Perfume is unwieldy at 147 minutes however a bit fatty and unnecessary at the film's cost. Sometimes that happens with novel adaptations especially one as popular as Perfume. In fact the film ends with an unusually bizarre orgy with hundreds of naked people writhing in hormone-driven ecstasy. What smells so lovely Mr. Tykwer?
The woman at the center of Arnold Schwarzenegger's latest scandal fears the
California Governor's aides are out to kill her after she claimed she was once
Gigi Goyette briefly dated the unmarried California Governor in the 1970s and
was horrified by an inaccurate tabloid story in 2001, which alleged she had
an affair with the Terminator star behind his wife Maria Shriver's back.
New Yorker Goyette was paid $25,000 by tabloid the National
Enquirer for the kiss-and-tell story, but insists corrections she made to an
early draft were ignored.
She claims that efforts to get a correction printed fell on deaf ears and she
simply wrote off the experience as a lesson learned - until Enquirer editors
approached her again in 2003 when Schwarzenegger announced his candidacy for
California Governor, and attempted to silence her from telling anyone else
about their relationship.
Goyette fears Schwarzenegger's aides are behind the effort to keep her quiet
- but has no idea why they're going to such great lengths.
Speaking exclusively to talk-show host Donny Deutsch on his Big Idea show on
Tuesday, she said, "I wouldn't call it a romantic relationship... We
dated a little bit, but 30 years ago.
"[Now] he feels that some of the things that went on between us at that time
would damage his reputation. I really think it stems from them thinking of
those headlines and that story in 2001 that damaged him running at that point.
"They said that he didn't run [then] as a result of that story. They used me
as a scapegoat. I don't know what everybody is afraid about because there is
But Goyette still fears repercussions and has taken to keeping a loaded gun
at her home in Malibu, California - because Schwarzenegger is such a powerful
She adds, "He's a huge American idol to a lot of people... I've always been
fearful that perhaps there would be some retaliation by somebody in his
immediate group to come after me or hurt me or my family and for that reason
alone I stay very protected and I keep a loaded gun at my house."

Promising journalism student Matt Buckner (Wood) gets tossed out of Harvard for taking a drug rap for his highly privileged roommate the son of a governor. He knows he can't fight the charges so he heads to London to visit his sister (Claire Forlani) who's married and has a child. Their absentee father (Henry Goodman) is a foreign correspondent and Matt can't reach him to tell him of his expulsion. Meanwhile he meets Pete (Hunnam) the crass and unsophisticated brother of his new brother-in-law Steve (Marc Warren). Steve sends Matt off with his brother Pete with a bribe to show him one of England's best cultural event--a football match (that's soccer to us Yanks). That trip results in Matt's involvement in the Green Street Hooligans a gang or "firm " as they're called that supports the local team and pounds each other in violent street battles. Matt learns about camaraderie loyalty machismo and street fighting as well as realizing he can pack a wallop when called upon. He's getting a reputation for being tough but things get more complicated as Matt becomes the sole American in the Hooligans as well as the fact he's hiding that he's a journalist. The firms don't take kindly to the tabloid types.
We know Wood as Frodo Baggins the hobbit of the Lord of the Rings movies and Hunnam is known as the pretty boy from the British version of Queer as Folk and Nicholas Nickleby. But in Green Street Hooligans both of them dirty themselves up a bit. Hunnam is the standout showing his true acting chops with his close-shorn hair and spontaneous mean streak. He's smart and multi-dimensional alternately showing his rough side as a gang fighter and then his sensitive side as a schoolteacher and football coach. Wood isn't nearly as believable as a street thug but he's adept at playing the fish-out-of-water roles. Warren is noteworthy as the brother-in-law with a secret and Leo Gregory puts on quite a performance as a police lieutenant suspicious of Pete. The supporting cast looks like they were taken right off the streets of West Ham.
Director and co-writer Lexi Alexander does a nice job showing the British versions of gangs and their bloody street fights. Americans may be shocked by the senseless violence surrounding a sports franchise (or maybe not) but it's realistic. The British press however are vilifying this film because it's too cleaned up and doesn't accurately show the "yob" subculture. But if Hooligans is viewed for its brutal but effective fight scenes as well as a window into machismo then its not disappointing. It gets a bit corny at times and heads in a predictable direction but it remains captivating partially because of the handheld cinematography by Alexander Buono. The film shows how the sense of belonging and desire to bash heads can become addictive among the guys in the pubs who don't have much to lose.
