In the wake of Sara Leal's confession about her recent affair with Ashton Kutcher, evidence continues to pile up and suggest that Demi Moore is considering ending their marriage. And just yesterday, a moving truck was spotted outside of Ashton and Demi's Santa Monica home and when contacted, the moving company (Wetzel & Sons) said they couldn't comment on anything due to confidentiality. This alone is enough to believe a divorce is in their future, but their representatives still fail to comment on their clients' current relationship status (which is also another clue that all these "marriage in trouble" rumors are actually true).
Obviously Demi is taking the sex scandal news pretty hard, so much so that her eating habits have reportedly changed. A friend recently confessed to US Weekly that the Five director "is superskinny, and it's hard to look at," while another pal admitted "She's very upset, and hasn't been eating. It's taking a toll." It's totally understandable since not only is this a traumatic ordeal, but it's also the main topic of discussion all over the web and tabloids. One could argue, though, that they're kinda doing it to themselves since they refuse to comment on any of what's going on (and cryptic twitter messages don't count). Until they fess up to what's really happening, I'm afraid they're going to be stuck dealing with all the media speculation. Oh the joys of being famous.

After garnering widespread praise (and an Oscar nomination for screenwriting) for his 2000 directorial debut You Can Count on Me Kenneth Lonergan was in-demand. In September 2005 the writer/director began production on a follow-up feature: Margaret which touted Anna Paquin Matt Damon Mark Ruffalo Matthew Broderick Allison Janney as well as legendary filmmakers Sydney Pollack and Anthony Minghella (The English Patient) as producers. The movie wrapped production in a few months time. The buzz was already growing.
Now six years later the movie is finally hitting theaters. So…what took so long?
The journey to this point hasn't been an easy one and it shows. If a film's shot footage is a block of granite and the editing process is the careful carving that turns it into a statuesque work of art Margaret feels like it was attacked by a blind man with a jackhammer. The film is a cinematic disaster a mishmash of shallow characters overwrought politics and sporadic tones. The story follows Lisa Coen (Paquin) a New York teenager who finds herself drowning in chaos after distracting a bus driver (Ruffalo) causing him to hit and kill a pedestrian (Janney). Initially Lisa tells the police it was all an accident but as time passes regret takes hold and the girl embarks on a mission to take down the man she now regards as a culprit. That's just the tip of the iceberg–along the way Lisa deals with everyday teen stuff: falling for her geometry teacher (Damon) combating her anxiety-ridden actress mother losing her virginity dabbling in drugs debating 9/11 and the Iraq War cultivating a relationship with her father in LA and more. There are about eight seasons of television stuffed into Margaret but even a two and a half hour run time can't make it all click.

Ben Stiller wants to give men (and some women) what they've been dreaming about their whole lives -- a chance to see Jennifer Aniston naked. But his generosity doesn't end there...he wants to do this all in the name of charity. Stiller is launching a new foundation that focuses on building schools in areas affected by poverty around the world and while you might think that in itself is a difficult task, the actor's biggest challenge thus far has been finding a name for the charity. He wants something that will grab everyone's attention and give them a reason to donate to such a worthy cause. So what did he come up with? The See Jennifer Aniston Naked Foundation. Sounds promising, right?
Stiller was nice enough to create a funny video where he shows just how supportive the gorgeous actress really is of his charitable efforts and lists some of the other charity names he had thought of before his creative genius took over. Some of the other contenders included: The Derek Zoolander Center for Kids Who Can’t Read Good And Wanna Learn To Do Other Stuff Good and So You Think You Can Donate. While these were good ideas, I'd have to agree that a naked Jennifer would win by a landslide. So check out the video below and start donating!

Instead of school bells, Mark-Paul Gosselaar is about to be hearing wedding bells! Girls all loved the actor as Zack Morris at Bayside High School in the widely popular television show hit Saved by the Bell, but now this hunky actor is taking himself off the market for good. Reports are stating Gosselaar recently got engaged to advertising executive Catriona McGinn. The Franklin & Bash star, whose divorce from Lisa Ann Russell was just finalized in May, proposed to McGinn with a 5 carat cushion-cut diamond ring, custom designed by his friend, jeweler Neil Lane. Looks like Mark is sparing no expense when it comes to his future wife-to-be. If I was her I would have screeched for joy.
Lane commented about his friend's love for the future Mrs. Gosselaar saying, "He couldn't wait to propose...he was so excited to have found the woman of his dreams." The Hollywood hottie already has two children, son Michael, 7, and daughter Ava, 5, from his marriage to Russell, but perhaps an addition to the family will be in order once the engaged couple says 'I do'. Congrats to the happy, soon-to-be-married couple and let's hope second time's the charm!

Oh Mr. Terminator...must you make it so easy to hate you? TMZ caught Arnold Schwarzenegger strutting around in an old gag t-shirt while exercising in Santa Monica on Sunday and it was anything but appropriate. The former California governor wore a shirt that read "I survived Maria" on the back and at the bottom shows the dates "2007-2010", but "2007" is crossed out, replaced with "1977." For anyone not making the connection, "Maria" represents Maria Shriver, his wife of 25 years, whom he began dating back in 1977. The couple are in the process of getting a divorce, so the significance of the t-shirt seems overwhelmingly cruel and too serious of an issue to be making jokes about (click either photo below to see more photos of Mr. Schwarzenegger).
But evidently the t-shirt isn't supposed to be as offensive as it initially appears. Reports are claiming that he received the piece of clothing last November during a farewell party for the Governor's staff and that Shriver's employees actually designed the shirt themselves as a joke, not knowing how ironic it would be months later. The ex-couple seem to be on great terms despite all the drama the actor has caused for his family, but even so -- come on Arnold, the shirt is still a little inappropriate and highly insensitive to the whole situation. Next time, think before you dress.
Ron Weasley who? Emma Watson is already putting the Harry Potter series behind her by starring in the upcoming film The Perks of Being a Wallflower, and apparently getting cozy with co-star Johnny Simmons. One thing I love about celebrity couples is that most of the time it's so predictable. Put two beautiful people on a movie set together, have them hang out all the time and take part in sex and nude scenes and of course they're going to fall for each other. Despite popular belief, Hollywood celebs are human. So we really shouldn't be surprised that a budding romance has started between Watson and Simmons. That's Hollywood for ya!
On Tuesday, the alleged couple stepped out to share a meal together in Santa Monica and were spotted sharing a kiss before heading inside the restaurant. The two were photographed hiking together earlier this summer as well, although the young actress has previously denied rumors that she and Simmons are romantically involved. It's alright Emma, we don't need you to confirm anything. Looks like your lips were doing the talking for you! We'll just have to wait and see if this flame fizzles out once the film wraps. So what do you think -- do they make a cute couple?
I'm noticing a few trends lately with our Hollywood stars. Some celebs are heading back to daytime soap operas and others are trying to take over the White House. I had no idea the bad economy was affecting the entertainment industry so badly -- the stars must be hard up on work. Either way, some of our entertainers are dead set on proving to us that their talents extend outside the acting realm and into the political world.
During an appearance on The Tonight Show yesterday, Roseanne Barr announced that she plans on running for President of the United States in the 2012 election. The actress tells Jay, “I’m totally serious," implying that if Sarah Palin can have a go at the hot seat then pretty much anyone could. Ms. Barr adds, "I want to be part of the debates because I want to represent the tax payer. In fact, I’m choosing the tax payers as my vice president.” Which political party would the actress join? Barr stated, “I’m not for either party because they both suck and they’re both a bunch of criminals. So I made up my own party. It’s the Green Tea Party.” It's thinking like this which is going to put our economy right back on track.
This isn't the first time a celeb has teased about running as a means to increase the ratings of their show -- I'm looking at you Donald Trump. Roseanne recently began her own reality show on Lifetime where cameras follow her around on a Hawaiian nut farm for Roseanne’s Nuts. Let's see if this little promotional technique works in her favor.

Rosario Dawson graces the cover of Shape magazine's August 2011 issue looking as lovely as ever. Although she may have a rocking body herself, the actress discusses in the interview how she hates society's views regarding women's bodies, claiming that it's a form of violence. She also believes women are under too much pressure to lose weight and for no reason other than it's what society expects. Dawson remembers receiving compliments when she lost weight for her role in Rent, the 2005 Broadway musical turned movie, recalling, "I remember everyone asking when I was doing press for the movie, 'What did you do to look so thin? You looked great' and I'm like, 'I looked emaciated'... It's a form of violence, in the way that we look at women and how we expect them to look and be." I have to agree with her -- only in today's society would an actress be complimented for looking so great while playing the role of an HIV-positive, drug addict near death. It's scary.
Dawson doesn't want young girls to get the wrong impression of the human body and what it should look like. The actress claims, "I'm constantly telling girls all the time, 'Everything's airbrushed, everything's retouched. None of us look like that." She adds that she's "grateful to be on the cover of Shape and be able to show myself, my normal self." It's refreshing to know that there are some celebs who aren't all about being fake and trying to convince the world that they're perfect because who could live up to those kinds of standards? Hollywood stars are teens' main source for heroes and idols, something that I think most celebs tend to forget about, so it's nice to know Rosario is a cut above the rest.
Roberts Blossom died of natural causes on July 8th at a Santa Monica nursing home at the age of 87. His daughter, Deborah Blossom, really announced the news to the Los Angeles Times. Now some of you may be thinking "who's that?" and already be looking him up on IMDB to see if you would recognize different things he's been in. Well let me save you the trouble. We all new him as "Old Man Marley", the creepy, misunderstood, snow-shoveling neighbor of the McCallister family in Home Alone.
While Blossom is best remembered for this particular role, he was also in other films such as The Hospital, Slaughterhouse-Five, The Great Gatsby, Escape From Alcatraz, and many more. Now you may be thinking - really the shovel guy? That's right. The actor also starred on Broadway, as well as in television, and also won three Obie Awards for his off-Broadway work. Rest in piece Mr. Blossom...you will always be remember as a hero that saved poor little Kevin from the Wet Bandits.

Not all is well in Baldwinville. Daniel Baldwin, brother to the more well-known Alec Baldwin, has filed for divorce from his wife, Joanne, merely one day after filing a restraining order against her -- talk about a double whammy! The actor blames the split on his soon-to-be ex-wife's problems with drugs and alcohol and has forced her to move out of their house in Oregon they have shared with their two children. Baldwin issued a statement about the break-up lamenting, "Sadly I must report that I have decided to part ways with my wife Joanne...due to recent events in our home and for the safety of my children and myself, I have made this decision. My hopes and prayers are with Joanne that she may recover from her recent problems and reclaim her role in our children's lives."
The couple were married on July 28, 2007 and have two daughters together: Avis Ann, 3, and Finley Rae Martineau, who is almost 2 years old. As of right now, Baldwin was granted temporary custody of the kids. There has been no immediate comment from Joanne regarding these recent events. It's always sad when children have to suffer because of this and it's also equally sad that it takes something like this to get Mr. Baldwin's name in the news.
