The latest celebrity news and gossip is that Ashley Greene and boyfriend Joe Jonas almost got arrested at the airport in Abu Dhabi recently. The pair were halted by security guards because Jonas had accidentally placed a set of cheese knives in his carry-on bag.

The security guards didn’t have to employ any weapons besides “really stern faces,” according to Greene. Perhaps more significantly for celebrity news fans is that Greene, 23, for the first time confirmed that she and Joe are a couple, saying, “I was there for pleasure - my boyfriend was on tour and I had some time off so I went out to support him. He's really sweet.”

It’s usually not so difficult for a movie star to give away $1 million, but today’s latest celebrity news is that after a journey fraught with problems, Leonardo DiCaprio did just that at a summit in St. Petersburg, Russia. The odyssey started out when Delta Flight 30 had to make an emergency landing in New York after engine problems. However, in true celebrity style, DiCaprio signed autographs for the flight crew and passengers after the ordeal was over.
After arriving in Russia, DiCaprio joined heads of government for the first ever summit for saving tigers. There, he donated $1 million to the World Wildlife Fund’s urgent tiger conservation efforts. Once he’s back stateside, DiCaprio plans to produce and star in a new movie on the John F. Kennedy assassination. He will play FBI informant Jack Van Laningham, who said he witnessed a confession to the assassination by a Mafioso.

The 17-year-old actress, who appears to enjoy creating controversy, was apparently cut for creative reasons. In the November-December issue of Revolver, the television and fashion star (who is the “face” of Madonna’s “Material Girl” clothing line) laments that she didn’t have a “real life” after being signed with Ford Modeling at age 2 and working constantly ever since.

In today’s celebrity news and gossip, Lindsay Lohan will no longer be playing the famous porn actress Linda Lovelace in the biographical movie Inferno, according to director Matthew Wilder. Wilder allegedly told E!, “We are withdrawing our offer from Lindsay Lohan,” saying that the decision was a business rather than a personal decision. He stated that the “impossibility of insuring her” was one of the reasons the deal could not go forward.
As for Lohan, she contends that she was not fired from the picture, but rather quit. According to Deadline Hollywood, actress Malin Akerman, from “Watchmen” and “The Heartbreak Kid” has been chosen to replace Lohan in the movie. Lohan is currently trying to address her addiction and legal problems in California.

After denying trouble in her three-year marriage to Tony Parker, Eva Longoria confirmed Wednesday that she indeed is divorcing the NBA star. Though the divorce petition cited irreconcilable differences, the latest celebrity gossip surrounds Erin Barry, wife of Parker’s former teammate Brent Barry. Erin and Parker apparently engaged in massive text messaging, and it was recently made public that the Barrys are divorcing too.
Parker, nonetheless, led his team to victory Wednesday night over the Chicago Bulls, though he did admit it was “a difficult time right now for me and Eva.” Though Longoria, 35, said through her publicist that Parker cheated on her earlier in the marriage and that she was devastated, she is determined to remain strong.
Next year’s wedding of Prince William to Kate Middleton is sure to be a fashion industry frenzy of speculation, and in fact, there’s already plenty of opinion about the look Kate should go for on the big day. Two of London’s leading hair stylists have given their opinions, and both agree that she should wear her hair up for the wedding.
Karine Jackson, a legendary London West End stylist says that wearing her hair down will take away from the dress and Kate’s lovely face. She suggests an updo with “luscious bouncy curls suspended at the back of her head.” Stylist Errol Douglas suggests a classic chignon, and thinks it would look better without a veil, but with other “gorgeous accessories.”

With her bombshell celebrity fashion style, it’s not easy to think of Scarlett Johansson as taking to comedy so easily, but she really put it out there after hosting Saturday Night Live last week. Johansson played, among other things, a spoiled teen mother, a Disney-esque schoolgirl, and a child star transitioning to adult roles (which she did in real life, starring in The Horse Whisperer at 13).
During her monologue, the curvy star poked fun at celebrities caught in celebrity news and gossip scandals, offering advice on how to avoid the tabloids. She advised stars to “wear underwear, why wouldn't you, it takes seconds to put on and it's comfortable.” And she said the way to avoid the scourge of the celebrity sex tape is by use of a mirror rather than a camera. “Use a mirror,” she said. “They are like cameras that forget.”
Recent celebrity news and gossip has it that British Academy Award nominee Carey Mulligan has been seen recently spending time in L.A. with fellow Brit Tom Sturridge, star of Waiting for Forever.

Other celebrity news is that Mulligan is all but confirmed to play Daisy Buchanan in the upcoming Baz Luhrmann film adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic American novel The Great Gatsby. Though Scarlett Johansson was considered for the part, opposite Leonardo DiCaprio, rumors have it that due to a scheduling conflict, she will not be available for Gatsby. This moves Mulligan to the top of Luhrmann’s list.
In celebrity news and gossip that has been swirling for weeks now, it now appears that actress Zooey Deschanel will be playing the character Betty Brant in the new Spider Man movie.

Other big names in the upcoming film include Tobey Maguire, Sally Field, Emma Stone, and Rhys Ifans. Deschanel will have to juggle the acting gig with her successful career as a singer and songwriter. Married to Ben Gibbard of Death Cab for Cutie, she recently performed “God Bless America” during the seventh inning stretch of one of the NLCS games between the San Francisco Giants and the Philadelphia Phillies to an appreciative crowd of 40,000.
Fashion industry designer Jenny Packham designed a red, frilly dress for Hermione Granger in the latest Harry Potter film, and she says that it was fun, but a challenge as well. In the film, Hermione is old enough to have developed her own sense of style. In real life, actress Emma Watson, the 20-year-old who plays Hermione, is becoming a fashion icon in her own right.
Packham told Vogue.co.uk that she thoroughly enjoyed designing for Hermione. “I had to combine the youthfulness of Hermione, with Emma's iconic fashion status,” she told Vogue. Watson displayed her unique celebrity fashion style and wowed the crowds at the world premier of The Deathly Hallows Part 1 in London recently, wearing a gorgeous black lace mini dress with a feathered skirt.
