Liev And Naomi Hit A "Rough Patch," Rumors Of Bullock/James Sex Tape Surface, Lindsay's Checks Bounce

  • Naomi Watts and Liev Schreiber are reportedly going through a "rough patch" due to ego problems:

"Basically, it's a total clash of the egos between the two of them. It's always tough to make a relationship work when it's between an actor and actress. Both tend to be self-obsessed to a degree, and Naomi and Liev fit that description to a T," says a source, "Liev would like Naomi to take more of a back seat when it comes to her career, he wants to be the major star and breadwinner and he would like her to be more of a stay at home mom. But Naomi knows that her movie making days are running out fast and she wants to capitalize on her looks and fame while she still can - while she's still young enough." [RadarOnline]

  • A top secret script for the upcoming film Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows was found at a pub by a Sun reader, who kindly handed it back to Warner Brothers: "I couldn't believe my eyes.

  • Robert Pattinson says that fame has made him suspicious of people's motives: "Being well known is a real burden. I'm less open and have noticed that I'm actually getting paranoid.

Then later I think, 'What if this person only wanted to be nice?'" [TheSun]
  • Ricky Gervais has similar feelings: "I go to restaurants but they're safe environments. People don't bat any eyelid in the Ivy but I probably wouldn't go to Nando's on a Friday night in Birmingham, and I don't go to pubs. I've had no bad experiences, everyone's very polite, but you can get phobic. It's about feeling trapped. If you walk into a shop and you see someone go [he whispers behind his hand], then you walk out again. Walking down the street with someone going, ‘Love the show' – nothing wrong with that at all. But being plonked somewhere where there's loads of people who you don't know but think they know you – that's a bit weird. We're not really meant to be famous." [TimesOnline]

    Her cussing and swearing and disappearing felt like the new 'normal' in our household. In fact, we were bombarded by so many moments of misery that any time she said something positive it was shocking." [TheSun]

If she was my daughter, Peaches would be in her second year of university, not living alone in Los Angeles." [DailyMail]
