Zac Efron wants to star in a 'Grease ' remake

Zac Efron wants to star in a 'Grease' remake.

The 'High School Musical' heartthrob admits he would love to step into John Travolta's shoes as gang leader Danny Zuko in the musical movie, but only with the legendary actor's consent.

Zac - who appeared alongside John in the recent film version of hit musical 'Hairspray' - said: "If John was involved I'd do it. But without his consent there's no way I could ever attempt a role like that. That's too hard, he's just too cool. He's a stud!"

The 20-year-old actor also revealed he is happy to star in more musicals after the success of his Disney movie franchise, and is convinced Hollywood will continue making all-singing, all-dancing films.

Zac added: "I love musicals! I've noticed that various movie studios want to get involved with making musicals and I think it's great. They're making a comeback and so I think there should be more in the pipeline. Any time there's a musical, I'm up for being on board. It's fun."



Mariah Carey: Determined not to get pregnant for fear of extra weight!

Mariah Carey is determined not to get pregnant because she doesn't want to put on weight.

The 'Touch My Body' singer - who has recently been showing off her slim line figure in a variety of skimpy outfits - is reportedly in no rush to start a family with new husband Nick Cannon because she is so concerned about gaining excess pounds again.

A source told the National Enquirer magazine: "Mariah gets teased all the time about when she is going to have a baby - but she just looks at you like you said a dirty word and tells you that with her new figure, and how hard she always needs to work to keep the weight off, one pregnancy and it would be over!

"Mariah has got a great life - she is not looking for anyone, or anything, to change that. She would play a concert a month to support the world's starving children but a child of her own has never been her dream."

Lindsay Lohan returned to 'Ugly Betty set' for cameo episodes

Clad in a sexy orange cheerleader's uniform, Lindsay Lohan returned to the Ugly Betty set this week to continue filming her cameo episodes in the satirical fashion industry show. The starlet, who plays lead actress America Ferrera's former high school nemesis Kimmie, later swapped the ensemble for another racy school-girl style outfit of a pvc skirt and over-the-knee socks.

In the current storyline Lindsay is down on her luck and working in a fast-food outlet while the star of America's character has risen.

The rest of the Ugly Betty team have been full of praise for the Mean Girls actress. Ana Ortiz – Betty's sister in the popular series – said the 22-year-old actress quickly got into the improvisational style used by the cast, starting with a scene in which a food fight takes place.

"She throws a mean bagel," she joked. "It broke the ice really well!"

Alexa Ray Joel showcased her musical talents for benefit in New York

Proud parents Billy Joel and Christie Brinkley were more than happy to take a back seat on Saturday to watch their daughter Alexa Ray showcase her own musical talents at a benefit event in New York.

After guests at the sold-out fundraiser had enjoyed locally produced wine and cheeses, the talented 22-year-old daughter of the Piano Man took to the stage to provide the entertainment, singing a selection of tracks from behind her keyboard.

Encouraged from an early age by her famous father and classically trained on the piano, Alexa is an accomplished performer in her own right and delighted the crowd – including mom and dad – with her soulful blues sound.

The night had special meaning for the trio as the aim was to raise money for the Save Sag Harbor fund, a cause that helps preserve local shops in the area that Alexa, Billy and Christie have all called home.

Victoria's Secret Supermodel Obsession

US lingerie retailer Victoria's Secret has launched a new range at
its flagship store in New York.

The company enlisted the help of their new "angel" 23-year-old Doutzen Kroes and Victoria's Secret veteran Adriana Limain.

The company enlisted the help of their new "angel" 23-year-old Doutzen Kroes and Victoria's Secret veteran Adriana LimainBoth models paraded the new lingerie from the "Supermodel Obsessions" range in front of eagle-eyed fans and the media.

New signing Kroes said: "I just signed my contract with Victoria's Secret and when I arrived here this morning and saw all the pictures - it was just amazing."

Kroes has graced the covers of numerous fashion and society magazines such as Vogue and Harper's Bazaar.

In April 2006 she signed a three-year contract with L'Oreal Paris. She can currently be seen in the company's commercials alongside Eva Longoria and Kerry Washington.

The new range of lingerie is made up of three themes: the prettiest pales which highlights soft pinks and greys, precious details, which is all about black lace and bows and boyish charms, which draws inspiration from men's silk ties and jumpers.

According to the designer Janie Schaffer consumers are looking for a "little pick-me up" that "won't break the bank."

She said: "We're very conscious that this might be a place where they can come and get something a little bit glamorous, a little bit lovely and afford to be a little bit frivolous even if it's only them that's going to get to see it."

The collection is available at Victoria's Secret stores.

Charlize Theron Brightened Up The Venice Film Festival

Beautiful Hollywood actress Charlize Theron brightened up the Venice Film Festival on Friday as she arrived for the photocall for her latest flick wearing a vibrant fuchsia Versace dress.

Teaming the outfit with black buckle heels and sunglasses, South Africa-born Charlize smiled broadly as she stepped off the boat before posing for waiting photographers. The folds and detailing on the dress, taken from Versace's 2009 resort collection, emphasised the Oscar-winning actress' enviable figure as she got to work promoting The Burning Plain.

And the Monster star's passion for fashion did not stop there. In an on-trend one-shouldered embellished number from the same fashion house, Charlize worked the red carpet at the film's premiere later that day.

Also starring LA Confidential actress Kim Basinger, The Burning Plain is a multi-part story about a mother and daughter trying to bond. Charlize not only stars in the movie, one of five US entries up for the festival's Golden Lion best film award, but also worked as its executive producer.

Explaining why Kate, 34, had topped the list, the survey said: "In the four films starring Kate, we are given dream sequences that invite us to imagine how we might fulfil her desires.

Kylie was praised for a promotional piece she shot which sees her riding an electric horse.

The survey noted: "The camera closes in on her bulging behind as it rides up and down and shakes from side to side."

Dita won the third spot thanks to her ability to "tease out men's deepest fantasies through the power of suggestion".

Kylie Minogue: Disappointed with her last album 'X'

Kylie Minogue has admitted she is disappointed with her last album 'X'.

The Australian-born pop singer says although her 'X2008' tour has been well received, her post-breast cancer LP wasn't as good as it could have been.

Kylie told Britain's The Sun newspaper: "In retrospect we could definitely have bettered it, I'll say that straight up. 'Wow', '2 Hearts' and 'In My Arms' are crackers - they go off like a frog in a sock - but given the time we had, it is what it is."

Despite a huge push from her record label, the album

flopped in the US - not even making the top 100 of the American album charts.

However, Kylie isn't upset that Stateside success has eluded her.

She said: "I always go over there with the same attitude I've always had, which is, 'If it's to happen, it'll happen.' I'm kept pretty much busy enough. We'll see. I'm not racing over there. I'm heading home."

Kylie also revealed an unlikely inspiration for her tour - rock band Queen, in particular late flamboyant frontman Freddie Mercury.

Kylie added: "I'm releasing my inner Freddie Mercury. It's hard to explain but parts of the show are so over the top. When I sing 'Your Disco Needs You' it's a real Freddie moment."

Eva Mendes: I am a horrible cook!

Eva Mendes is a terrible cook.

The 'Ghost Rider' actress admits she loves food but is so bad at cooking she does not even try any more.

She said: "I have too much respect for food to do what I've done to it in the past. Man, I've really killed some stuff."

The actress also revealed despite her svelte figure, she has never cut down on junk food to maintain her weight.

She said: "I'd shock you at how much I could eat. Any kind of dessert is fantastic. It's gross, but I also love cup noodles. I'll eat two at a time because the salt really does it for me. They're so cheap so they can't be that good for you, but they're yummy!"

Eva added she only really watches her diet when she is filming, and allows herself to indulge at other times.

She explained: "If I have a shoot I'll work out more and watch what I eat, but if I don't I'll let myself go. I'm addicted to bread. I want it constantly so, right now, I'm letting myself have more of it but when I start my next movie I'll cut down."

Lindsay Lohan's grandfather dies

Lindsay Lohan's grandfather died thursday. (28.08.08)

The 'Mean Girls' star's father Michael confirmed the death of his dad Richard - who had been suffering from terminal colon cancer - but revealed he is unsure whether the 23-year-old actress will attend the funeral following the pair's public war of words.

Michael told America's OK! magazine: "My father just, literally, died in my arms. I notified all my kids and my lawyer notified my ex-wife Dina's attorney. Let's see if she has the decency and respect to bring my kids to the wake and funeral.

"THIS will show her true colours! Thus, not even a call. But that's par for the course with Dina! She didn't even send a card or visit when he was sick."

Michael - who accused Lindsay's girlfriend Samantha Ronson of using his daughter earlier this week - also revealed he is planning to star in a TV special.

The show will document how Michael's stinging attack on Samantha was orchestrated by Dina.

He said: "I'm going to do a one-hour special. Everyone is going to hear everything for themselves. They're going to hear everything Dina has to say. I have it all on tape - all recorded, time and date-stamped.

"You will hear it all. I have 101 text messages between Lindsay and I, and I have about 60 tape recordings of Dina. These lies have to stop. She can't say all these things to me and when I try to address it, deny everything. Dina's a hypocrite and I'm tired of it."

Nicole Kidman overwhelmed with pressure of motherhood and career

Nicole Kidman is overwhelmed by the pressure of juggling motherhood with her career.

Friends are said to be worried about the actress - who gave birth to daughter Sunday Rose in July - after she slimmed down to 10lbs below her pre-pregnancy weight and collapsed in tears as the strain took its toll.

A source close to the 'Moulin Rouge!' star said: "From the start Nicole seemed determined to lose her baby weight. Just a week after giving birth she had regained her pre-pregnancy figure and dropped nearly all the weight she'd gained while expecting.

"We think she has since dropped 10lbs below her pre-pregnancy weight of 125lbs.

"Nicole started rehearsals for new musical 'Nine' a few weeks after Sunday's birth. She's doing two or three hours of dancing a day. On top of that, she went right back to working out with a trainer, doing yoga and Pilates, as well as swimming and jogging."

Nicole showed her stress during a recent visit with husband Keith Urban to see her family in her home country of Australia.

The source added: "They flew to Sydney for some family time but Nicole broke down in tears within a few hours of landing. She sounds like she's overwhelmed."

Nicole is also said to be struggling to find the time to sleep as she tries to balance work, motherhood and her fitness regime.

The insider said: "I think Nicole wants to be the perfect mum so she always tries to be there when Sunday opens her eyes in the morning, as well as putting her down at night.

"But she doesn't seem to be sneaking in more than four hours sleep a night."



Hugh Hefner's girlfriend Kendra Wilkinson doesn't like nudity in magazines

Hugh Hefner's girlfriend doesn't like nudity in magazines.

Kendra Wilkinson, who is one of three girls living in the Playboy mansion with Hugh, finds it sexier when women cover their "special areas".

She said: "My personal opinion about nudity in magazines is that I really don't like it. I'm serious. I love, love, love Playboy, but to tell you the truth, I find it sexier when girls keep things on, so that it's more of a tease than showing everything. I like teases. I like it when girls wear little things that cover up those special areas. I think it's sexier.

"It's funny, but I was never attracted to the fully nude look. When I pose, I like something to play with, something to hide behind. Of course, I have posed nude."

Kendra, who met Hugh at a party where she was naked apart from body paint, also confessed she doesn't like stripping off for photo shoots.

The 23-year-old blonde beauty added: "I'm getting to a point where I don't like to pose nude anymore. Believe it or not, I'm a bit more self-conscious now.

"We just got finished shooting a new pictorial for Playboy, and the photographer we worked with was way into the fully nude thing. He's like the best photographer, but he's really aggressive about the nudity. It's all nude, nude, nude. And I was like, no."

But she decided against pursuing her dream of becoming a num when she found out that they work for free.

'I guess there is this little Catholic girl still inside me somewhere,' she tells Daily Star Sunday.

Caremen Electra: There moments when I am so that little girl from Ohio

Carmen Electra claims she has a "shy" side.

The former 'Baywatch' actress - whose real name is Tara Patrick - says despite her raunchy on-screen persona, she is very reserved in real life.

She said: "Tara is more shy. Tara is more easily intimidated. She's that side of me that was afraid of rejection, that was afraid to take a chance, and step up and have someone say, 'No, you don't get the role.'

"I do still have that side of me - that soft, sensitive side - and I think that Carmen is the more aggressive part of me. There are moments when I am so that little girl from Cincinnati, Ohio, and I cry and I'm just like everybody else. You know, I have all the same feelings that everyone else has."

Carmen - who can soon be seen in spoof film 'Disaster Movie' - also revealed she has always had a humorous side and relishes the chance to show it off in comedies.

She added to "I really get a kick out of spoof movies. For me, it's a chance to show people that I have a sense of humour and don't take myself too seriously.

"A lot of times I was the class clown in school. I've always been that way. If you can't make fun of yourself, if you take yourself too seriously, then you spend your life worrying all the time."

Brad added: "Until then, I'll be sharing mine with him."

Lindsay Lohan branded her father Michael a "public embarrassment and a bully".

The 'Mean Girls' actress
is furious her dad accused her girlfriend Samantha Ronson of using her to raise her profile, and insists it is Michael who is "addicted to fame".

She wrote in a MySpace blog: "If you have something to say to me, say it to my face - that's what I have believed my whole life - don't be a coward and say it to others first, let alone to all the media in the world.

"It really hurts, because I have tried - after all that my mother and siblings have gone through, I really tried to make things work - for the hope of having a father again and wanting things to change - even though people have said, some people will forever remain the same.

"He has become a public embarrassment and a bully - to my family, my co-workers, my friends, and a girl that means the world to me (it's obvious who that is).

"His recent attack on my life and my loved ones is simply for an ADDICTION THAT HE HAS - FAME. If he really cared about me and my life, then he would learn to respect my wishes by staying out of it. Samantha has not and would never sell me out. Nor has my mother, who is wonderful."

Samantha also wrote a blog entry about the incident, insisting she is being "used" in Michael's desperate attempt to boost his profile.

She said: "I really don't want to say anything because I feel like he wins - he, being the man who is so desperate for attention that he goes to the media whenever possible - I know I am being used, I am just a pawn - easy to sacrifice in order to feed his addiction. I was angry when I first read his attack on me, but I believe that actions speak louder than words. So now I just pity him."

"They would also write things on the sidewalk in permanent marker. They really hated me."



Hilary Duff's father has been jailed for contempt of court

Hilary Duff's father has been jailed for contempt of court.

Robert Duff was reportedly arrested yesterday (27.08.08) and sent by a judge to a Texas county jail for allegedly violating an injunction by selling assets without court approval.

He must pay the $368,000 he earned from the sale into a court fund and serve 10 days in jail.

The arrest came following an earlier dispute between the 20-year-old singer's parents over her birthday party.

Robert and Susan - who have been involved in a bitter divorce battle for two-and-a-half years - appeared in court after Susan requested $25,000 to spend on presents and a party for Hilary's 21st birthday next month - the same sum she claims they spent on elder daughter Haylie's 21st in 2006.

A lawyer for Robert asked Susan - who claimed she relies on financial help from Hilary to pay lawyers' fees and other bills - if her "adult millionaire daughter would be upset if she did not receive an expensive gift and party for her birthday".

Susan replied that her daughter "is emotionally upset by the abandonment of her father and deserves to have some kind of recognition for a young life well lived", before claiming he currently spends his cash on buying his girlfriend's sons gifts.

Robert was ordered to pay $12,500 to Susan for Hilary's birthday, before being arrested for contempt of court.

Jennifer Aniston flaunts single status

Jennifer Aniston is getting her "revenge" on former lover John Mayer by flaunting her single status.

The former 'Friends' actress, who was dumped by the musician earlier this month, is refusing to stay at home and mend her broken heart - preferring to party and shop in New York.
A source told America's OK! magazine: "It's like Jennifer is on nothing less than a revenge tour. While in the past, Jennifer shunned publicity and shrank from photographers' lenses, now she's openly encouraging the attention, smiling, showing off her body, and creating photo ops!

"Since John said it was he who broke off their four-month romance, Jennifer has kept a stiff upper lip and let her actions do the talking, making sure everyone sees her smiling and looking sexy."

Last week, Jennifer flew from Los Angeles to New York - John's hometown - for a three-day trip.

The 39-year-old actress went shopping, visited the Metropolitan Museum of Art and had dinner with her 'The Object of My Affection' co-star Paul Rudd at exclusive Japanese restaurant Nobu.

A source said: "Jennifer was glowing, smiling and being very friendly as she ate tuna tartare, rock shrimp and spinach salad with a glass of wine. It was hard to believe this was a woman who just broke up with her boyfriend."

Meanwhile, Jennifer has sparked rumours she is set to work with legendary director Woody Allen, after the pair met for lunch yesterday (26.08.08).

Jennifer - who was wearing a pinstripe jacket, dark jeans and a gold and jade ring on her wedding finger - and Woody were seen at Los Angeles' Madeo restaurant.

The pair have never worked together before.



Samantha Ronson to write a tell-all book about relationship to Lindsay Lohan

Samantha Ronson is reportedly set to write a tell-all book about her relationship with Lindsay Lohan.

The DJ - who is believed to have dated the 'Mean Girls' actress since late last year - is planning to reveal intimate details about the couple's daily life.

A source told website E! Online: "Samantha is certainly telling friends she's planning to write a book. It's supposed to be about her, allegedly. But come on, you know Lindsay will be all over that book. She's the only one people want to read about."

However, Lindsay's father Michael is furious about the prospect and believes the 31-year-old music star is "using" his 22-year-old daughter.

He said: "I've shut up about this long enough. Samantha is using my daughter. People never even knew who Samantha Ronson was until she met Lindsay. She was just some Los Angeles DJ. And now she's writing a book? I am at my wit's end with this stuff. This is not in Lindsay's best interest.

"Let's just say I hope Lindsay starts opening her eyes and realizes who the people using her are."

Michael also thinks Samantha is responsible for getting Lindsay hooked on alcohol again, despite the 'Georgia Rule' actress seeking treatment in rehab for her drinking problems.

He said: "Samantha drinks and passes the drinks under the table to Lindsay, and behind the scenes it gets worse and worse. Sam is using my daughter. My daughter isn't working because she's always with Sam. Even my ex-wife Dina knows it. She just isn't doing anything about it."



Nicole Scherzinger worried paparazzi might take pantie shots!

Nicole Scherzinger is worried paparazzi might take photographs of her underwear.

The Pussycat Dolls star admits she and her bandmates are all so "scared" a photographer might aim a camera under their dresses when they go out they are always on their guard.

She said: "The UK is the first place we were warned about under-dress shots. We've been scared ever since."

However, the 30-year-old singer accepts being followed by the paparazzi is all part of the job and says the best way to deal with the attention is to plan ahead.

She added to Britain's Now magazine: "It bothers me because I didn't get into the industry for that. But you just have to plan stuff out.

"It's not the attention that I personally want to get, but sometimes you just have to realise that it's a part of what you do and embrace it and make sure you're poised to represent yourself the best way you can."

Nicole has also revealed her current boyfriend, Formula One driver Lewis Hamilton, is a real romantic and has even penned a love song for her.

She said: "He wrote a song for me and played it on the guitar."



Mel B would consider appearing nude in Playboy

Mel B would consider appearing nude in Playboy magazine.

The Former Spice Girl revealed she has turned down two offers to appear in the adult publication, but hasn't ruled out the idea completely.

She said: "I was offered Playboy last year and again a couple of months ago, and I did turn them down, but that's not to say I wouldn't consider it in the future. I have no problems walking around the house naked or anything."

Mel became the body of underwear brand Ultimo in April this year, and has appeared in several raunchy adverts for the company.

The 33-year-old star - who has two daughters, nine-year-old Phoenix and Angel, 16 months - also says she is comfortable with her body image and doesn't believe in dieting to lose weight.

She added to Britain's Closer magazine: "I'm pretty confident with my bikini body. It's not like I've got a skinny body either - it's very voluptuous. But I do like it and that's great. I work out and eat healthy and listen to my body.

"I've never lost my curves and got skinny. I guess working out and genetics have helped me in that department. I don't believe in dieting to lose weight."

Mel is planning to release a fitness DVD early next year, to reveal how she got back into shape after giving birth.
