The Part Of Gloria Steinem Will Be Played By... Demi Moore

Not since her star turn as a single mom-cum-stripper who gets caught up in steamy political hijinks in opus Striptease have I been so excited about a Demi Moore movie role — albeit for real this time now she's been cast as none other than Gloria Steinem in the Linda Lovelace biopic, Lovelace. A noted feminist icon — preaching to the converted here, I know — Steinem was vocally anti-porn and wrote a scathing piece in Ms. magazine about how Lovelace was beaten and coerced into making porn. There could be worse actresses chosen to play her, but do you think Moore has what it takes to take on one of the greats? [THR]

No one really knows what Katy Perry and Russell Brand are feeling in the wake of their divorce announcement – with reports suggesting they're happy, sad, relieved, sideswiped or depressed on any given day.

Eva Longoria suggests not commenting on how amazing and trim someone looks in the wake of a divorce, as there's every chance their break-up diet is far from healthy. "I remember after my divorce, I was so thin and everyone kept saying how great I looked. It was probably the most unhealthy place I've ever been," she said. "So it was funny what people would see as 'healthy.' In my worst time, people were saying I've never looked better." [NYDN]
