Well everything was going swimmingly until Andre was approached by a "leggy lass" he knew. A source dishes: "As soon as he started talking to her, Courtney hit the roof.

  • Sarah Jessica Parker kept 12 pairs of Swarovski Crystalline cocktail glasses used in a wedding scene in Sex And The City 2: Rise Of The Manolos. Took 'em home. At $390 a set, that's 24 cocktail glasses worth a total of $4,680. She also kept some of her $10 million wardrobe from the film. This article points out that the movie not only pimps out SJP's Halston brand, but is a big commercial for other companies: "Every aspect of Carrie's life is reduced to a vignette that can be monetized: Going to the Gym (sip on Lipton Sparkling diet green tea, an official sponsor of the new movie!), Having Cocktails with Girlfriends (try a specialized cocktail from Skyy, the movie's "official vodka"!), Getting Married (Swarovski paid to be featured prominently in the film) and, of course, Working On Laptop, Staring Wistfully Out the Window (Hewlett Packard partnered with the movie so its laptops would be featured, and SJP will appear in the computer company's ads, of course).

  • Legend-in-the-making Jane Lynch has spoken out about the Newsweek/Glee controversy: "The thing is, actors are actors: You can't play gay anymore than you can play somebody who's Catholic. Aaron Sorkin wrote a wonderful thing in the Huffington Post. I don't think you have to slap somebody down for making an opinion that you don't agree with. But I do think what Kristin and Ryan did was so important, and I'm glad that they said it. It doesn't mean, ‘Off with [Setoodeh's] head.' But I'm very glad, and I thought it was very heroic what the two of them did." [EW]

Carey says of competing with the other actresses for small pool of roles: "I think we're all aware that we're all reading the same things. She's eons higher up than I am. She's much higher. There's a chain of people that get offers before you do, and she's much higher in that chain. So I kind of think that if she rejects it, then I might get it. You never really know where you stand. Your agent doesn't ring-a-ding and go, 'Well, five people turned it down, so what do you think?'" [AP]

According to this report, the studio "leaked the story to turn fans against the cast." The thing is, the franchise is a juggernaut. If the kids compare their salaries to how much the flicks make, it probably seems like a fraction of a fraction. But as Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke (who is not directing the fourth film) says: "It could turn ugly. Do [these actors] deserve more money? Probably they do, on one level. But if everybody make so much money then… it's complicated. What a mess!" Apparently the lead actors made 20 times more on Eclipse than they did on Twilight, and the non-lead actors are not asking for anything close to that. [Us Magazine]
