Jennifer Lopez's pining for pregnancy

Jennifer Lopez misses being pregnant.

The Latino star - who recently gave birth to twins Max and Emme, her first children with husband Marc Anthony - enjoyed the connection she felt with her children while they were inside her.

She said: "I miss feeling them inside me. It's funny, when their little umbilical cords fell off I cried. That was the last attachment we had where it was just us."

Jennifer, 38, also insists she has never experienced love like the love she feels for her son and daughter.

She added in a magazine interview: "It's not until you experience it yourself that you can put it into your own words. Your heart is connected to them. It feels like there's a string from my chest to theirs."

Earlier this week, Jennifer vowed to ease up on her work commitments because motherhood is the biggest priority in her life now.

She said: "I've been very career-orientated my whole life, but all of a sudden it's been like, whoosh! I want to do everything for them."

Katie Holmes 'Cracking' Under Strain of Life With Tom Cruise

A US magazine claims that the exhausted actress is suffering from debilitating headaches and dizzy spells as a result of her marriage.

Star cites a recent L.A. lunch date when Katie looked pale, feeble and emaciated, and was so disorientated when she left the restaurant that she “braced herself against the doorframe before her bodyguard carefully guided her into a waiting SUV.”

Sources tell the mag that extreme dieting and her manic husband may be contributing to her ill health.

"Katie doesn't get enough sleep - and hasn't for months now," says one insider.

"She's tired and drained much of the day because Tom is so wired, and they stay awake until after midnight. He has boundless energy, and she just can't compete."

Sources also claim that Tom disappears for days at a time, without telling his wife where he's going.

"His rule is 'You can be with me, but don't ask about it,'" says a source.

Johnny Knoxville divorced

Johnny Knoxville's divorce has been finalised.

The 'Jackass' star and Melanie Lynn Clapp had their marriage ended at Los Angeles County Superior Court over the weekend.

Knoxville must cover his family's health and medical expenses but spousal support and the custody of their 11-year-old daughter Madison are still to be decided.

Johnny - real name Philip John Clapp - and Melanie married in May 1995, before separating in July 2006.

Johnny filed for divorce in July 2007, citing irreconcilable differences.

In the legal papers, it was revealed he was seeking joint legal and physical custody of Madison, whose name he has tattooed across his chest. He also offered to pay an unspecified sum of child support.

Johnny - who recently nearly lost his testicles when a stunt for 'Jackass' went wrong - denied he dated Jessica Simpson while they filmed 2005 movie 'The Dukes of Hazzard'.

But he did admit he is often propositioned by his female admirers.

He said: "Some girls come up to me and say, 'Can I ask you a question? Are you looking for a little p***y tonight?' It's weird. Most of the time they come up and say hello but other times you get the extreme version of that."

Katie Holmes' Reese ambition

Katie Holmes wants to become the next Reese Witherspoon.

The former 'Dawson's Creek' actress - who is married to Tom Cruise - is determined to be taken seriously as an actress and wants to be respected as much as the Oscar winner.

A source said: "Katie keeps telling Tom she wants a career like Reese Witherspoon's."

Tom is said to have offered to help his wife by getting her a great script but Katie - who has a 23-month-old daughter, Suri, with the 'Top Gun' star - is determined to make it on her own.

The source added: "Tom has offered to make calls to ensure she gets a first refusal on the hot scripts, but Katie insists she wants to achieve success without his help."

Since leaving hit US teen show 'Dawson's Creek', Katie has appeared in a handful of hit films, including 'Batman Begins', 'Thank You for Smoking' and 'Phone Booth'.

Sarah Jessica Parker's LA hate

Sarah Jessica Parker hates Los Angeles because the city treats celebrities "like exotic creatures".

The 'Sex and the City' star would never quit New York and move to Los Angeles because she believes the city, the home of Hollywood, is too obsessed with actors.

She told Hello! magazine: "For me it was never really a choice between New York and Los Angeles. I've always considered New York my home and since my husband Matthew Broderick was born and raised here we never even considered moving away.

"New York has the big advantage of not treating celebrities like exotic creatures. No-one cares because the city is so big and driven by so many other interests that people don't obsess with actors as much as they do in Los Angeles, where it all revolves around Hollywood."

Sarah has been married to 'Inspector Gadget' star Matthew for nearly 11 years, and the couple have a five-year-old son James Wilkie.

The 42-year-old actress can next be seen reprising her role as Carrie Bradshaw in 'Sex and the City: The Movie', which is released worldwide at the end of May.

Report - Jolie & Pitt's Twins Will Be Fraternal

Report - Jolie & Pitt's Twins Will Be Fraternal.... Angelina Jolie will give birth to twins in her late mother's native France, if the latest U.S. news reports are to be believed.

Celebrity magazine In Touch reports the actress and partner Brad Pitt are expecting a boy and a girl.

The couple has yet to confirm the baby news, even though Jolie's ever-growing belly suggests she's with child, and their publicist is offering a firm "no comment" on the latest reports.

According to In Touch, Jolie was overheard cooing about her unborn babies on the set of Pitt's new movie, Tree Of Life, in Texas, telling one pal the little ones are "kicking and moving".

A source tells the publication Jolie and Pitt were overjoyed when they heard they'd be having twins after a visit to their obstetrician/gynaecologist Dr.

Jason Rothbart last week (14Mar08).

The insider says, "Because she took fertility treatments to help her ovulate, her babies are fraternal. They're ecstatic. She can't wait."

Madonna rocky marriage denial

Madonna has vehemently denied reports her marriage to Guy Ritchie is on the rocks.

The 49-year-old pop star's representative issued a statement insisting the couple, who have been married for seven years, couldn't be happier following various reports they live separate lives and are on the verge of splitting.

Liz Rosenberg, Madonna's US spokeswoman, said: "I am delighted to confirm that Mr. and Mrs. Guy Ritchie remain happily married.

"Though they were in different countries recently - Madonna in the US promoting her upcoming album 'Hard Candy' and Guy finishing up post-production on his new film 'RocknRolla' as well as completing a Nike commercial and working on several scripts in England - the family are joyfully back together at home in London. All is well and wonderful in the Ritchie household."

Rumours suggesting the couple's union is in trouble have been rife for several months. They have not been pictured together since January 8, when on a trip to India.

Speculation intensified when Guy, 39, was noticeably absent from Madonna's induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in New York.

According to reports, the couple - who have a seven-year-old son Rocco, an adopted son David, two, and an 11-year-old daughter Lourdes from Madonna's previous relationship - have been living like "brother and sister" rather than husband and wife and have even divided their London home into two separate living quarters.

Halle Berry's baby joy

Halle Berry has given birth to a baby girl.

The 'X-Men' actress and her model lover Gabriel Aubry are overjoyed after welcoming a 7lb 4oz daughter into the world yesterday (16.03.08).

Halle is believed to have given birth at Los Angeles' Cedars-Sinai Hospital.

The 41-year-old star's representative said: "Halle is doing great."

It is not yet known what the couple have decided to call their first child.

Halle reportedly suffered a health scare and was taken to hospital on Saturday (15.03.08) after her blood pressure soared.

A source told America's Star magazine: "Halle had come to the hospital at 4am in the morning because she felt she was going into labour. It was a bit scary because her blood pressure was skyrocketing and everyone was a little tense.

"She's a diabetic so that was complicating matters. The doctors checked the foetal heart rate and everything seemed OK. After a while Halle's blood pressure came down so they let her go home in the afternoon.

"Halle felt her contractions come on a lot more intensely later that night so she came back to the hospital at 11.00pm."

Halle was left in tears when her daughter finally arrived.

The source added: "Halle was overcome with emotion when she finally held her baby. The tears kept coming and Halle didn't even want the nurses to take her baby to be cleaned and measured. It was a beautiful scene."

The actress met Gabriel while shooting a Versace advert in Los Angeles in 2005.

Halle announced her pregnancy last September and revealed the couple were planning to expand their family again soon.

She laughed: "There's just one baby at the moment, but we're hoping, immediately after this one, to do it again!"

Amy Winehouse's tough childhood

Amy Winehouse's father believes his extra-marital affair ruined her childhood.

Mitch Winehouse admits he made his daughter's early life difficult by cheating on her mother Janis for eight years, before leaving the family home to live with his mistress Jane in 1993.

He said: "The affair was in the open and the children used to call Jane 'Daddy's work wife'. I did not leave home until Amy was ten so the situation occurred for eight or nine years before I left home. It was difficult.

"I didn't realise what effect my behaviour had on her until I heard her song 'What Is It About Men', with the line 'All the s**t my mother went through', which obviously referred to me."

However, Mitch - who married Jane in 1996 - insists he is not to blame for his daughter's current battle with drink and drugs, and even thinks his affair inspired her talent.

He revealed to BBC TV show 'One Life: Rock Star Parents': "She couldn't articulate what was wrong in words but she certainly did with her music.

"What she is going through at the moment is terrible. She could die horribly, but that cannot happen.

"I think she would have found her way here one way or another without any help from me though.

"It is easy for me to say it is my fault, and that had I been a better parent this would not have happened. But who knows whether it would or not?"

Amy, 24, entered a London rehab clinic in January after footage of her smoking what appeared to be crack cocaine was released. She left just two weeks later to perform for the Grammys via a live satellite link-up.

The programme airs in the UK next Tuesday (18.03.08).

Victoria's representative has denied the couple are unhappy in America, saying: "They couldn't be happier here. They aren't having second thoughts."

David's representative added: "He is there to fulfil his contract."

Victoria - who recently finished a reunion world tour with her band the Spice Girls - is said to be desperate to move back to London to concentrate on her fashion range dVb.

Jennifer Aniston's cosy Owen

Jennifer Aniston has been cosying up to her co-star Owen Wilson.

Jennifer and Owen are said to have become inseparable while filming 'Marley and Me' and are openly flirting with each other on the Miami set.

One crew member told America's Star magazine: "The hugging didn't end when the cameras stopped rolling. They were very flirty together, far more than you would expect. In between takes they were hanging onto each other. They are very friendly."

Although the former 'Friends' star was said to be worried about working with the comic star, she has been surprised by the chemistry between them.

A friend of Jennifer's added: "She wasn't looking forward to the film at first because she was worried about working with Owen, but he has turned out to be a real surprise. She's finding out that he's a terrific guy who's fun to be around.

"Jennifer is known for being a recluse on set. But she's having so much fun hanging out with Owen. She's just really relaxed and happy, which is nice to see."

Last week, it was claimed the 39-year-old actress was dating Brian Bouma, a crew member she met while filming 'Traveling' in Vancouver, Canada.

Cher's Britney bomb

Cher has told Britney Spears to "blow up" the paparazzi.

The 'Believe' singer advised the troubled star to escape unwanted attention from photographers by planting a car bomb, as she was pursued by snappers herself.

When asked if she had a message for Britney, Cher said: "Yeah, she should blow you guys up with a car bomb!"

Cher, 61, isn't the only star to have words of advice for 'Toxic' star Britney.

Heidi Klum, Robin Williams, Ellen DeGeneres, Brooke Shields and Britney's ex-boyfriend Justin Timberlake have all offered to help get Britney back on the straight and narrow.

The 26-year-old singer's erratic behaviour has included shaving her head, attacking a paparazzo's car with an umbrella and stealing underwear from an adult store.

In January, she refused to return her two children to ex-husband Kevin Federline and was taken to a local hospital for psychiatric treatment.

Jason Statham's Meeting With Real-life Bank Robber

Jason Statham's Meeting With Real-life Bank Robber....

Jason Statham was visited on the set of The Bank Job, by one of the perpetrators of the real-life heist the movie was based on.

The Brit plays the member of a gang who robbed a central London bank in 1971.

None of the thieves were ever arrested and the stolen money was never recovered.

The British Government also banned the media from reporting on the case - prompting conspiracy theorists to speculate the authorities were hiding something.

But Statham's research into the role was made easier, thanks to a mysterious on-set visit.

The actor reveals, "We were very lucky. One of the chaps came to the set. We tried to keep his identity undercover. He didn't want to glamorise himself. A lot of people thought he was my dad coming for a set visit. Remarkably he looked a lot like me.

"He told us some great stories about the day."

"He wasn't afraid to fight with people, he wasn't afraid to p**s people off.
