A day after Holly Madison met with Hugh Hefner and fiancée Crystal Harris, to "wish them the best," she declared in an interview, "I feel like he's making a hasty decision. I'm not sure Crystal's the best thing for him."
Crystal hasn't been around very long — she's a mysterious character. No one knows much about her. Plus, she's very young, probably too young to settle down. I've seen a lot of girls try to date Hef, and some have ulterior motives. I don't think it would be a bad idea for him to get to know her a little better. I think it's possible Crystal could break Hef's heart. They could end up divorcing, and she could take half his money.
Lest you think that Holly's just bitter, she added, "I'm not jealous that he'd marry someone else. I just don't want it to be a girl who's using him to start her career. Basically, I think he could do better than Crystal." [Life & Style]

Lea Michele's campaign to squash the diva rumors continues. She says she only refused to sign an autograph for True Grit star Hailee Steinfeld because she sent a PA to retrieve her signature. "I heard Hailee was upset and feel terrible," says Lea. "The 'Glee' schedule is so jam-packed that the PA probably pulled me so that I wouldn't be late to set. I never meant to hurt her feelings. She's an extraordinary talent, and I look forward to meeting her one day." [Popeater]

Johnny Depp isn't making any apologies for The Tourist flopping at the box office. He says if he could do it over again, "I'd do it exactly the same. I wanted to work with Angelina and I felt like I had a good handle on the character. It was not a character that I'd really played before. I don't know the main ingredient of success at the box office. I just feel that's not something I can do anything about." [EW]
I'm severely torn now. I REALLY wish they wouldn't make American versions of the "Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" movies. The originals are awesome, and I can't imagine anyone coming close to playing the Lisbeth Salander role as well as Noomi Rapace did. I just...wish they wouldn't remake them.
But. Now I discover that Daniel Craig is playing Mikael Blomkvist?? Where have I been? The fact that he'll be in the movies is practically the only thing that could convince me to see them...but I still may not. I'm just so sure they're going to fall waaaay short of the originals.
