Agassi confesses they were a terrible match, but blames himself for the ill-fated union - which ended in divorce in 1999 - claiming he clung to Shields in a desperate bid to find happiness during an emotional meltdown.
He explains, "(I was) 27 years old, ranked 141 in the world and in a marriage that I shouldn't be (sic) in... I didn't want to be playing tennis either so my life was filled with things I didn't want, things I didn't choose. Part of it was an inability to find a place for anything really."
Agassi married fellow tennis champion Steffi Graf in October 2001. They share an eight-year-old son, Jaden Gil, and a six-year-old daughter, Jaz Elle.
The revelations feature in Agassi's new memoir Open, in which he also admits to taking crystal methamphetamines and deliberately throwing tennis matches.
The Wimbledon winner made a brief cameo in medical drama E.R. in 2005 but her character died in the show - and now she's looking for a more action-packed role.
Williams says, "I really enjoy acting. I like being in front of the camera. I think I should be an action star. I always wanted to die in acting and then I died (in E.R.) and I was miserable! I was like, 'I don't wanna die anymore', so my dying in acting career is over!
"Now I'm moving on to more action roles. I can do a real mean chop and a kick and I can jump high and run fast and cartwheel."
Not content to let the lifeless zombies of 2004‘s Polar Express define his legacy as a pioneer of 3-D Christmas movies (a genre to which incidentally he remains the sole contributor) director Robert Zemeckis is back for another go at it and this time his inspiration isn’t just some fly-by-night Caldecott Medal winner; it’s Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol perhaps the most cherished piece of Christmas fiction of all time.
While other filmmakers have tackled Dickens’ most famous work before none adapted it in the way the author would have wanted it to be presented: as a big-budget three-dimensional motion-capture animated spectacle starring the legendary Jim Carrey. Thankfully for us Zemeckis stepped up to the plate.
For the dozen or so who are unfamiliar with A Christmas Carol’s simple yet powerful story a quick rundown is in order. On a snowy Christmas Eve in 19th-century London a notorious miser named Ebenezer Scrooge (played by Carrey) is visited by three ghosts (also played by Carrey): Christmas Past Christmas Present and Christmas Yet to Come. Together the terrifying apparitions conspire to teach Scrooge an unforgettable lesson about the folly of his avarice and the virtue of charity and compassion.
Unlike Zemeckis’ previous literary adaptation 2006’s Beowulf there isn’t a whole lot about A Christmas Carol’s tale of yuletide redemption that cries out for the 3-D treatment — nor does the star of Dumb and Dumber and Ace Ventura: Pet Detective seem especially suited to play the part of Scrooge. And yet both creative decisions prove surprisingly successful in this movie. Zemeckis’ 3-D animation is wondrous to behold and Carrey is simply terrific as the bitter old grinch.
The problem is Zemeckis can’t resist falling in love with his technology and his star; consequently A Christmas Carol overdoses on both. The first time the camera glides through the streets of Dickensian London or soars above its snow-covered skyline the experience is breathtaking like being plunged into a world of Thomas Kinkade paintings. (And I mean that in a good way — even the fiercest detractors of the Painter of LightTM’s mass-produced portraits have to admit they hold a certain romantic appeal.) But by the fifth or sixth time it devolves into tedious showmanship.
Similarly while Carrey’s total immersion into the Scrooge character is remarkable his manic mugging as the Christmas ghosts is all too often distracting. Don’t ask me what the Ghost of Christmas Present was talking about during his sequence; all he seemed to do was laugh like a drunken Viking and blather on with an exaggerated Scottish accent.
But in the end neither Zemeckis’ overreach nor Carrey’s hysterics can obscure the impact of A Christmas Carol’s timeless message. As with previous adaptations of the story I couldn’t help but tear up a little when Tiny Tim uttered his trademark closing line “God bless us everyone!” — even if he did kinda look like a cartoon zombie.
The actress was recently reported to have become engaged to the Yankees ace after photographs showed a sparking diamond on her wedding finger.
But Hudson admits the rumours are wrong - because the ring in question is always worn on her other hand.
She tells Britain's Elle magazine, "Did you know that it was this ring, on my right hand? I'm like, 'Why would I even respond? What would I say if you're going to lie about something ridiculous?'"
The Brazilian catwalk queen has been taking intensive helicopter lessons for months in a bid to secure her pilot's license, and her tutor insists she's a natural in flight.
Shoreline Aviation president Keith Douglass tells People.com, "Gisele hasn't finished her license yet, but she did pass her written exam. Now, there's one more step along the way, the practical exam, which is coming up in another week.
"(She) has been doing an excellent job. She's very dedicated. She flies at least three days a week. Flying a helicopter isn't easy - it's a handful, because you can't stop flying and just cruise, but she's doing great."
But he admits Bundchen's huge baby bump is making her time in the cockpit tricky: "She's almost to a point where she's too big to be flying. We have pilots that fly right up to the end (of pregnancy). She doesn't go very high, maybe 500 feet or 1,000 feet, which is nothing. She's always close and can get down quickly if she needs to. She's feeling great and looking great!"
Bundchen is due to give birth to her first child next month (Dec09).
The Jamaican international, who played for English Premier League side Wigan Athletic at the time of the incident, groped the 20-year-old at a bar in London last December (08) before lashing out, breaking her nose.
King, 29, denied sexual assault and causing actual bodily harm but was found guilty on both counts by a jury. He was sentenced to 18 months in prison. Wigan Athletic bosses fired the striker after the court verdict was announced on Thursday.
The retired athlete, who is married to German tennis champ Steffi Graf, confesses he regularly used the drug to get high in the late 1990s in his new memoir Open.
He tells People.com, "I can't speak to addiction, but a lot of people would say that if you're using anything as an escape, you have a problem."
And he admits he initially worried about what his fans would think about his drug confession: "I was worried for a moment, but not for long... I was actually excited about telling the world the whole story."
DAVID BECKHAM has received an apology on behalf of fans who turned on him earlier this year (09). Beckham was criticised by Los Angeles Galaxy supporters over his temporary move to Italian side AC Milan - but Greg Delgado, founder of the Galaxy supporters' club, has said sorry after the soccer ace steered the team to the Western Conference title on Sunday (25Oct09).
The sports star's publicist has confirmed the happy news, stating the former model proposed this summer (09).
Philippoussis, who starred in U.S. dating show The Age of Love, previously dated singer Delta Goodrem and was romantically linked to Paris Hilton. He was once engaged to actress and model Alexis Barbara.
Crash star Esposito was briefly married to actor Bradley Cooper.
