Brad & Angelina Are Not Splitting; Johnny Depp Is Not Dead

  • Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie: Not splitting up. According to sources. [TMZ, People, NYDN]
  • Sources also say when Brad and Angelina had dinner in NY earlier this month, they drank a lot of wine. Then Brad told Angie:

If she didn't see a shrink, he'd leave her. Angie told Brad she was bored with him, and that he was "toxic." She is jealous and annoyed that he keeps in touch with Jennifer Aniston. And: "You have only to look at Brad and Angelina to see how this is affecting them both. Once half of the sexiest couple in Hollywood, Brad, who used to be so fastidious about his appearance, now looks little better than a tramp, with his ridiculous greying beard and growing paunch. He has also made no secret that he has been taking consolation in drink — frequently boasting to journalists on a recent junket about how he was still drunk from the night before. Angelina, meanwhile, is frighteningly skinny." [Daily Mail]

'He actually works hard all day long, and then I drag him out to these things. I know he's tired.' James piped up: 'Uh, I'm not that tired.' Bullock arched an eyebrow, made one hand into a claw and made a scratching gesture." [ONTD]

  • From a profile on Steve Buscemi: "[He] is not ugly, but he's not exactly handsome, either. He has the kind of face that your mother might say 'has character.' His eyes are buggy. His teeth are a bit prominent. His hairline is losing ground to his forehead. But instead of being a detriment, his looks actually add to his viability as an actor. Were George Clooney to play a twitchy loner who couldn't get the girl, audiences would roll their eyes and head for the lobby. When Buscemi does it, we all nod in unison and go, 'Yep, that's about right.'" [NY Post]
  • Blind item! "Which A-list married actor got overexcited filming a love scene with a much younger starlet?

You know what I mean?" — Kristen Stewart, saying something about rock and roll and Joan Jett. [ONTD via The Province]
  • "I have a fan base that ... loves Bella, and I do too, but I'm not her. I don't think people can expect me, for the rest of my entire career, to please an audience that once liked Twilight, you know what I mean. I just think that's crazy. It's really always an afterthought. I'll decide to do a movie and then go, oh, Twilight fans are probably going to react to this or whatever, but it's an afterthought. I don't plan things out based on how I think other people are going to receive them. I do it for the experience." — Kristen Stewart. [ONTD via The Providence]

  • "[My new DVD] will target an audience that has been left out: My age group and the boomers. I want to get to people who have stopped working out, or never did. I can't wait. What should I wear? Curious to hear from you about this. These folks I'm working with can do these productions with their eyes closed. I have to laugh when I think of when I did the first ever…still the biggest selling video of all time. We had no budget, no hair stylist or makeup artists. We did it all ourselves. I wrote the script on a ski trip in Calgary on the floor of my hotel room." — Jane Fonda, 72, is launching an exercise video. She also says, or her looks: "I owe 30 per cent to genes, 30 per cent to good sex, 30 per cent because of sports and healthy lifestyle and for the remaining 10 per cent, I have to thank my plastic surgeon. I'm happier, the sex is better and I understand life better. I don't want to be young again." [Telegraph]
