The actress and Muse rocker Matt Bellamy, who have been dating since last spring (10), are expecting their first child together later this year (11) - and Russell, the longterm partner of Hudson's mother Goldie Hawn, can't wait for a new addition to the family.
He tells People.com, "It's fun having babies once again. We just really like that. And it's fun to watch them grow. It's fun to see what they're grasping. I think secretly we're all hoping for a girl."
The 59 year old also admits he gets on well with Bellamy, adding, "He's really fun. We all enjoy him. We understand what Katie sees in the guy. He's a great guy."
But Russell insists there are no wedding bells on the horizon.
Hudson already has a son, Ryder, from her relationship with ex-husband Chris Robinson.
The 300 star turned 41 in style on Saturday night (13Nov10) by hiring out The Darby restaurant in New York and inviting 100 guests to celebrate.
Adrien Brody, U2's Bono, actor Jason Statham and professional skateboarder Tony Hawk all turned out for the event, which saw Butler take the mic to sing Mustang Sally with Mayer.
Butler also gave a rendition of Oasis' Wonderwall, before Mayer sang his own hit Who Says, reports New York Post gossip column PageSix.
A source tells the publication, "He had a pretty good voice - it wasn't what you'd expect from the guy from 300. It was epic. He was also in the deejay booth a lot and got the deejay to play a lot of rock, '80s and funk."
S4:E7 Who’s ready for some more miscommunications between young people!? I am! Because telling my banker I wanted to enroll in direct deposit and then still waiting to receive my paychecks in the mail wasn’t enough for me, so I can’t imagine it was enough for you!
We pick up with Serena getting to know Professor Colin more over coffee and those brown chairs people put in their offices that never get comfortable, no matter how many people sit in them. They are still continuing to wait until the semester is over before they date or have sex, and it was clear their academic brains were slowly becoming more and more vulnerable to their human instincts.
Serena and Nate hired a stenographer and brought Chuck and Blair together in hopes of ending the Waldorf/Bass war. Pupils of private schools, everyone: unafraid to pool their resources and deprive some appointed official their trusted stenographer for an hour to create a treaty for their quarrelsome friends that results in an “excommunication” (or loss of the entire group’s friendship) if broken.
While Blair was preparing for her birthday party that night, Dan and Eric started planning a gathering in honor of Lily and Rufus’ special occasion because the newlyweds decided they didn’t want to celebrate without Jenny in town, who was apparently back in Hudson and studying for a test she was to take on a Saturday. Dan and Eric decided to ask Chuck to help in getting Jenny back in the city so the happy couple could celebrate their first anniversary properly, and with everyone in attendance. They were going to give Chuck a reason to be angry and break the treaty so he'd want to get revenge on Blair by bringing Jenny back to New York to drive Blair insane AND help Lily and Rufus celebrate their anniversary.
Juliet used Gossip Girl to find out what route Serena would be taking on her way to class so she could casually catch her bringing a first edition book to Colin’s office in hopes of getting Serena to talk about who it’s for. Per her routine, Juliet promised not to tell anyone of Serena’s crush, and per Serena’s routine, she idiotically blurted her plans to the person who is working day and night to make sure a future Law and Order: SVU episode is about her. Juliet “innocently” asked the question of if Colin was as willing as Serena was to put the physical stuff on hold for a few more weeks, which was meant to send Serena’s head spinning with worries that he’s not so inclined to hold off his urges. And just as Serena arrived at Colin’s house to give her gift to him, she saw him escorting some other woman out of a cab and up to his apartment. But it turned out to be his housekeeper who’s having some hard luck with her modeling career, so Colin always pays her cab fare when she comes to his house.
When Dan went over to Nate and Chuck’s apartment and tried to implement his plan of having Chuck bring Jenny back to the city, he found Chuck and Blair getting along after they added an amendment to the treaty that said it would never be broken or whatever. Blair then invited both Dan and Chuck to her birthday party that night, which apparently isn’t a violation of the treaty. I guess the section meant for event attendance went to like nut saltage, or something.
Serena called Juliet and told her that Colin was, in fact, waiting like he said he was, and that Juliet was wrong in insinuating that he wasn’t. Then she asked Juliet if she would be her “buffer” at Blair’s party because she didn’t trust herself alone with Colin, especially in front of the Dean (who has nothing better to do than attend a girl’s 20th birthday party, naturally). But later, Serena ran into Nate, who offered to be her “buffer” instead of Juliet because he didn’t want to run into her since they’d broken up.
Now that Juliet was no longer needed by Serena, she got Colin (Serena’s professor, you’ll recall) to get her in to Blair’s party. Nate saw the two of them just before they went their separate ways inside, and once Serena noticed Colin was finally present, she told Nate to help distract her. Once he passed off his duties to Lily and Rufus, Nate followed Blair into the kitchen for some good alcohol and the two of them saw Colin and Juliet talking about how Juliet had been going to see Ben in prison (that apparently was not part of the plan that they cheers-ed to over a check last episode). Nate thought Colin was Ben, the guy Juliet left him for, but Blair recognized him for who he really was – Serena’s boyfriend. Are you confused? Yeah. Someone explain to me the specifics of achieving the color scheme in the newest Rihanna video. I think it’d be easier.
Nate went up to Juliet and confronted her about who that guy was that she arrived with, she told him Colin was her cousin and they didn’t want anyone to know because he’s a professor and she’s a student. (But that’s not why! Even though Colin really is her cousin, they don’t want anyone to know about their relation because they are both plotting Serena’s downfall and stardom in the gutter of a waffle house somewhere!) Nate said he knew Colin was also Serena’s boyfriend. Juliet left in a tizzy and went out into the dining room to find some girl playing a video of Blair singing karaoke, drunk, in Stolkholm. Blair confronted the girl who showed the clip and she said some guy called her and asked her to bring something embarrassing Blair did because it was actually a roast, and not a birthday party. Blair assumed Chuck placed the call and went to yell at him. Chuck told Blair he had nothing to do with the video, but she didn’t believe him. Then Dan came up from behind them and said Chuck and Blair deserved what they got because they made Jenny so afraid of coming back into the city.
After everyone left Blair’s house, she found Chuck downstairs and he told her that he still hated her and that the treaty was off. Then they had sex on the piano. Which, incidentally, proves treaties are useless and it’s better to just have sex with your enemy if you really want to get anywhere. If anyone cared enough to read more about Thomas Jefferson's private life and less about his clear writing strengths, I'm sure we'd find he'd been a supporter of that tactic a long time ago. Jefferson could have told us that.
The Fool's Gold star has been dating Muse frontman Bellamy since April (10), when they met at California's Coachella Music Festival, and they went public with their romance in July (10).
But gossips have claimed the relationship is waning because the singer is not a people person.
A source says, "She doesn't like how he never talks around her friends and family. Matt doesn't have much personality. She's bored and ready for the next guy."
However, Hudson's spokesperson has shot down the allegations, telling Us Weekly magazine the reports are "ridiculous and untrue".
The glitzy ceremony paid tribute to the female stars for their impact on the film industry, and others who received a nod included Jodie Foster, Diane Keaton, Sofia Coppola and Kerry Washington.
Paltrow was presented with her prize by her Proof co-star Jake Gyllenhaal, who took the stage and told the crowd about working with the multi-talented actress.
He said, "Bottom line, she is not a mere mortal like the rest of us... She is an internet-savvy, award-winning, lifestyle guru, making all of us look lazy. She doesn't just find a nice guy to settle down with - she marries a rock star and then domesticates him. She doesn't just cook - she goes to Spain with Mario Batali and then domesticates him! She is not just a lifestyle guru, but she invents a whole new fitness movement and then convinces me to try it, and I do it, and I am, therefore, domesticated... sweating my a** off in spandex, which is humbling and embarrassing."
One of the male guests at the event, Harrison Ford, admitted he was overwhelmed by the star-studded ceremony, because it serves as proof that women have secured their place as major players in Hollywood.
He tells the Associated Press, "(This event) came to be back in the days when they said, 'There were no good parts for women' and 'Women aren't highly regarded.' (Now) women run Hollywood. Absolutely run Hollywood. And I'm glad."
Foster, who is set to make her directorial debut with new Mel Gibson movie The Beaver, hopes to see more female directors gaining prominence in the movie industry.
She says, "It's women directors that are the last hurdle, and we haven't jumped over that. Now we have women studio executives, we have women producers. And, for some reason, that hasn't really translated into much gains for women (directors)."
The pair met at California's Coachella Music Festival in April (10) and were often seen together before the singer went public with their romance in July (10).
Their relationship blossomed while Hudson was on the set of the romantic comedy - and Bellamy charmed all of her co-workers.
Egglesfield tells America's OK! magazine, "It looks like they started dating while we were filming. I think her heart was already set on this guy. (Kate) did bring him by the last day of shooting. So, I got to meet him, and he's a cool guy."
Halle Berry, whose last big movie was 2006's X-Men: The Last Stand, has signed on to star in Shoe Addicts Anonymous, where she will play a shoe-addicted agoraphobe who feeds her compulsion by buying online footwear.
Berry will lead an ensemble cast of "four Chicago women from different ethnic backgrounds" (groups of women-friends are most stable in fours, we have learned) who share a love of shoes and all wear 7.5s. So naturally they form a support group, swap shoes, and become "sole sisters." In time, "their bond goes beyond footwear." Let's hope so!
Paul Weiland (Made of Honor) is set to direct the comedy, with a screenplay adapted from the eponymous bestselling novel by Beth Harbison. Kristen Buckley and Brian Regan (How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days) wrote the script.
The real question for me is whether Berry has the comedic chops to carry a film like this. Her last real comedy was Bulworth (1998), unless you can call Catwoman a comedy - of errors! But in all seriousness, this will be Berry's first time playing a character of this kind, following in the footsteps of Sarah Jessica Parker and Kate Hudson. It will be interesting to see if she can pull it off.
No other actresses have been cast yet, so it remains to be seen who Berry will have to play off of. I always like Lizzy Kaplan in these kinds of things, though she might be too young for this flick. There's still no distributer, but expect updates on the rest of casting sometime soon.
The stunning actress is currently dating New York Yankees hunk Alex Rodriguez, but admits she has never been outwitted intellectually by a man because they are so "simple".
She tells Britain's Elle magazine, "I sometimes feel like when you're talking to boys, they just hear certain keywords... But if you had a bubble above their head, they'd be thinking about game scores, masturbation and food.
"I love boys... but I believe they're really simple. Every guy likes to say that they're complicated, but they're so easy to figure out. What did that Dr. Laura say? Something like, 'All men want is sex and for you to make them a sandwich.' I thought that was really funny - and not entirely untrue."
