Paris Hilton Gets Movie Musical Role

Tuesday, July 31, 2007 |

Paris Hilton is going from jailbird to songbird with a role in a movie musical about organ harvesting. Hilton will co-star with Paul Sorvino and Alexa Vega in "Repo! The Genetic Opera," which begins shooting in September in Canada, Hilton's publicist, Elliot Mintz, said Tuesday.

It will be Hilton's first role since she completed a 23-day stay in jail for violating probation in an alcohol-related reckless driving case, Mintz said.

The horror rock opera, based on a stage musical, is set in a plague-ravaged future where people can purchase new organs on the installment plan from a corporation called Geneco. The catch is that if the payments stop, the organs are repossessed.

Hilton will portray the fame-seeking daughter of Geneco's owner (Sorvino).

"We saw many actresses for the role, and Paris sang it better than all of them," producer Carl Mazzocone told the Hollywood trade paper Daily Variety in Monday editions.

The director, Darren Lynn Bousman, also praised Hilton.

"I have auditioned at least 30 actresses for this role - Paris came in and owned it," he told Variety. "She is this role."

Britney Spears Goes House Hunting

Monday, July 23, 2007 |


It must be nice to decide to buy a $6 million house on a whim. But that’s the kind of girl Britney Spears has come to be. Whatever Britney wants, Britney gets.

Yesterday, the pop singer decided to check out a Pacific Palisades property listed at $6.5 million as a possible new place to call “home.” And she didn’t waste any time getting comfy. In fact, her bodyguard removed the “open house” and “for sale” signs at Britney’s prompting.

Jessica Biel feels “accepted as a woman” now she is a sex symbol.

The ‘I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry’ star – who is rumoured to be dating Justin Timberlake – has been hailed for her beauty all over the world and ranked number one in Stuff magazine’s 100 Sexiest Women 2007.

When asked how it feels to be an international sex symbol, Jessica told the New York Post newspaper: "It's extremely flattering. It's nice to be wanted and desired, you think, 'I'm being accepted as a woman now.' That's kind of cool."

The 25-year-old - who starred in the remake of 'The Texas Chainsaw Massacre' and 'The Illusionist' – recently revealed she finds sexy “boring” and prefers working with funny men.

She said: "Sexy sexy can be sort of boring. Funny sexy is way more fun and definitely easier because you can be ridiculous. So I would much rather laugh and do a funny sexy scene.

"Funny is key - funny, silly, someone who doesn't take themselves seriously, someone who can be ridiculous. That's the most attractive thing in a man."


Britney Spears is nothing if not spontaneous. The former popstar was spotted taking an impromptu swim at Malibu in just a hot pink bra and skimpy knickers.

After a day of house hunting, she decided to strip off and escape the California heat, squealing with delight as she cooled off in the waves.

Cameron Diaz Shows Her Trimsuit in Malibu

Wednesday, July 18, 2007 |


These days, Cameron Diaz is carefree and content with her fabulous life. While it wasn’t too long ago that she was mourning the end of her relationship with Justin Timberlake, she’s clearly put the past in the past, and is happily moving on.

She was seen swimming at the beach in Malibu this past weekend. Spectators were treated to a stunning scene as the “Sweetest Thing” star frolicked around the water in a skimpy bikini.

With all the fun that Cam’s having in her personal life, no wonder she is feeling so playful. A British hunk named David de Rothschild writes the latest chapter in Diaz’s love life.

Rothschild is an environmentalist and the heir to a huge banking fortune. The two have been seen out and about as of late, taking in shows and dinners while cuddling up with each other.

And while David is a few years younger than Cameron (as was Justin Timberlake), his adventurous nature is a sure fit for Cameron’s personality.

Enjoy the pictures of Cameron out on the beach on Saturday (July 14), and out to eat at Nobu later the same evening.


Actress Tara Reid spent last weekend on a beach in Malibu. After ups and downs, it seems things are finally starting to go her way.

Blond actress Tara Reid has had quite a few ups and downs in the past few years, but it seems that things are finally starting to go her way. She spent last weekend on a beach in Malibu and judging by the photographs, she had a great time.

She managed to deal with her alcohol problems, as well as medical problems caused by poorly performed plastic surgeries. In 2004 the actress went to have her breasts enlarged and undergo liposuction, but the end results were scars and an unprofessional job. Due to this Tara lost her self-confidence, but did not wait long. She courageously decided to undergo another surgery which was done professionally this time.

I once again feel like a woman. When I come out of the shower I know I look good, Tara said. You can see Tara’s ‘new’ body in a skimpy red bathing suit.


If you're going to take up surfing, it's generally a good idea to find some waves. But try telling that to Paris Hilton.

The 26-year-old, sporting a one piece star-covered number, took to the calm water for lessons on a long board with Australian pro-surfer Koby Aberton.

Actress Lindsay Lohan is reportedly caught up in a battle with a computer hacker who claims to have stolen naked pictures of her.

Celebslam.com has posted what it alleges is the script of a chat with Lohan, in which she reveals a computer hacker has stolen pictures taken by on-off boyfriend Calum Best.

She is claimed to have written that the hacker "broke into my computer and left a file on my desktop saying he got the pictures Cal took from me naked."

In the chat she reveals that her lawyer has been contacted.

Her representative says of the issue, "Anything is possible. I know nothing about it."

Lohan ended a 45-day stay at Malibu, California's Promises Clinic on Friday. She checked in in May after being arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence, following a car crash in Hollywood.

Salma Hayek tops sexiest celebs list

Thursday, July 12, 2007 |

Young and pin-thin celebs may line the glossies at the checkout counter, but when it comes to Tinsel Town’s sexiest, neither attribute seems necessary, if even desirable.

If Encino, Calif.-based polling firm E-Poll Market Research is to be believed, the average age of Hollywood’s 15 sexiest celebrities is 36. And unlike the shrinking divas of young Hollywood — a cadre that includes Lindsay Lohan, Paris Hilton, Nicole Richie and the Olsen twins — most of the women on E-Poll’s list have something else in common: curves.


Topping the list is shapely Latina Salma Hayek.According to the polling firm, which provides appeal rankings for more than 3,000 celebrities (both men and women), 65 percent of the U.S. population would use the term “sexy” to describe the 40-year-old star. To put that in perspective, the average celebrity garners a 15 percent rating on the E-Poll index. And there’s no question she has her male counterparts beat: at 39 percent, Matthew McConaughey may top the celebrity men in E-poll’s exhaustive database, but he ranks only 41st overall.

Lindsay Lohan celebrates 21st in rehab

Wednesday, July 4, 2007 |

The 21-year-old actress is renting a Malibu beach hut during a brief break from her stay at the nearby Promises rehab centre, which she is still visiting as part of her extended care programme for alcohol and substance abuse.

On her birthday, June 2, Lindsay was seen jogging on the beach but otherwise kept a low profile.

A few days before, on June 30, the singer-and-actress was seen at hip boutique Planet Blue carrying a brand new iPhone.

The day before, Lindsay visited her former residence, Hollywood's Chateau Marmont hotel, with two friends - one male, one female - where she drank tea, diet coke and water.

A witness said: "She's turned things around, at least for now."

On June 27, Lindsay attended an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting in Santa Monica, made a brief visit to Promises and then enjoyed dinner with friends at Brentwood restaurant Katsuya.

A fellow diner said: "She came in with a whole bunch of friends, there were like seven of them, and she walked in incognito, super low-key.

"They sat down for some sushi and were just really enjoying themselves. She wasn't really noticed at all and was just happy, in a good mood."

Lindsay had originally planned to celebrate the milestone with a wild party in Las Vegas sponsored by Svedka vodka company.

Meanwhile, Lindsay's estranged father Michael Lohan was barred from sending her a birthday present.

He said: "My parole officer got a call from Lindsay's attorney, saying I'm not allowed to communicate with her at all.
