I'm not sure how I missed this news earlier, but it appears Natalie Portman and Scarlett Johansson will join forces to make your cinematic experience that much more beautiful. The two young, talented and smoking hot stars have signed to play sisters in the period piece, "The Other Boleyn Girl." They will portray the rival Boleyn sisters, Anne and Mary, who vie for the affections of King Henry VIII's (played by Bana, lucky bastard). With the benefit of history, we now know that Henry is not the best guy for a gal to, you know, lose her head about. Look for the film in theaters next year and dream about this exquisite pairing until then.

All that blather from him about his great true faith. All his finger-pointing at those without. Guess it's easy to lose your religion in the bottom of a bottle.
I think Mel Gibson has a great cinematic eye. You cannot deny his abilities in "Braveheart." But the hypocrisy of people like him drives me crazy.

I mean, this bottle-blond media whore is shameless. She will stoop so low as to attack the 9/11 widows, women whose husbands died in the terrorist attacks on our country. And I quote:
"These broads are millionaires, linked on TV and in articles about them, reveling in their status as celebrities and stalked by grievers. I have never seen people enjoying their husbands' death so much."
Today, on Hardball, she continued her line of attack on President Clinton and his supposed latent homosexuality. And then she called Al Gore a fag. No, seriously. You can watch it here (click on part 3). When Chris Matthews asked her is she really thought Bill Clinton was gay she said, and I quote:
"He may not be gay. But Al Gore, total fag."
She followed that up with a cackle and a "No, just kidding." Why is it always the ones who shout the loudest about their love of God who are really the most Godless?
Lance told People:
"The thing is, I’m not ashamed – that’s the one thing I want to say. I don't think it's wrong, I'm not devastated going through this. I'm more liberated and happy than I’ve been my whole life. I'm just happy"
Good for him. I still think 'N Sync sucks. But I like Lance just a little bit more now. Oh, and I told you so.

Years ago, self-described Little Folksinger Ani DiFranco famously wrote a letter to the editor of Ms. magazine saying that she hoped her gravestone would read: "songwriter, musicmaker, storyteller, freak." Well, looks like she is going to have to add "mother" to that esteemed list.
Ani announced that she is expecting a little one February 2007, while accepting an award from the National Organization of Women this month. The father is music producer Mike Napolitano, who worked with Ani on her upcoming album "Reprieve."
Congratulations. Let's see how motherhood affects Ani's already deeply personal and penetrating lyrics.
"To split yourself in two, Is just the most radical thing you can do. - Ani DiFranco "Reprieve"

Oh. My God. This video made me laugh so hard this morning my coworkers looked at me funny from across the cubicles. Amy Sedaris was on The Colbert Report Monday and the interview seemed to be going along at a moderately amusing pace until the last two minutes. Wait for it. You'll thank me later.

Looks like our favorite gamine of the moment Natalie Portman will finally shed the last bits of her inhibition, as well as her clothes, and go nude in her new movie "Goya's Ghost." Just when I've reassembled my head from it big Salma-Penelope sandwich explosion incident. Read about it in Page Six, or just dream about it for the rest of the day.
7/12/06 UPDATE: Well, boo. Turns out the nudeness will be accomplished with a body double. And, it's a nude torture scene. Geez, what the hell kind of movie is she shooting?
This after show producers swore up and down that Marina was gone. Period. Nevermore. Oh well, better late than never.
In other L Word news, future guestbian and Bette love interest Marlee Matlin told the LA Daily News that she is nervous about joining the cast (new kid in school syndrome). Perhaps most interesting in the short bit, Jimmy Smits hearts the L Word. I bet you do, Jimmy. I bet you do.
