Anne Hathaway – US actress best known here for her roles in Brokeback Mountain, Get Smart and Rachel Getting Married (for which she was nominated for a Best Actress Oscar). She will be seen later this month in the movie version of David Nicholls’ best selling novel One Day. She has admitted that she is nervous about how the Yorkshire accent for her character Emma Morley will be received. Shortly after One Day is released Anne will be seen on our screens again playing the role of Catwoman in the new Batman movie The Dark Knight Rises. Here is the trailer for One Day to see if it is your sort of thing.
Linda Evangelista – the Canadian supermodel is seeking $46k (roughly £28k) a month in child support from her 4-year-old son’s father. François-Henri Pinault, who is Salma Hayek’s billionaire husband, fathered the child during a temporary split with Hayek. Although the claim might seem excessive she might end up being lucky as the Manhattan Family Court judge who heard the initial hearing yesterday stated that the claim was not exorbitant for bringing up the child of a celebrity. The case returns to court in September to sort out the final amount of child support.
Paul Daniels & Sooty – the magician has been taken to hospital whilst filming a scene for the Sooty Show. Daniels was hit in the face by a pizza thrown by Sooty (well Richard Cadell) and ended up with a black eye and a trip to the hospital. He had to cancel a performance after the incident but has apparently now made a full recovery. We think he liked it but “not a lot”! Check out Sooty’s side of the story on his Twitter site.
Duncan Bannatyne – there seems to be an unwelcome violent theme to today’s trenders. Bannatyne, the Scottish businessman and member of tv’s Dragon’s Den, has offered £50k to anyone who breaks the arms of a Twitter user (Yuri Vasileyev) who has threatened to kidnap Bannatyne’s daughter and harm her unless he hands over £35k. Bannatyne was warned that somebody may take his £50k menaces money bribe seriously to which he responded “Good”. Bannatyne is reckoned to be worth around £320m.
