Sex makes me happy, money doesn't: Cheryl Cole

X Factor’ judge Cheryl Cole has admitted that sex, not money, keeps her happy.

The Girls Aloud member also revealed her bedroom antics with her footballer husband Ashley Cole.

“We tackle each other in the bedroom and he loves me massaging his feet,” the Mirror quoted her as saying.

“Sex with Ashley is more important to me than all the money in the world. Sex makes me happy, money doesn’t. And Ashley makes me feel sexy, he’s fantastic,” she added.

Cheryl, 25, who had once let slip that Ashley did not like to make love when their pet chihuahua was in the room, also revealed her preference.

“I think most men prefer to hear little breaths rather than big loud screams. Otherwise you sound like a porn film,” she stated.

The singer is very independent, and advises others about relationships.

“I tell my friends to play hard to get,” she said. “Don’t call him, don’t text him, and he’ll come running to you. It works every time,” she added.

I'm capable.'"Jolie reiterated her plans to adopt more children with Pitt."I mean, I know we seem crazy, just bringing them in one after the other, but we do plan.

Roadside Romeo (Film Review)

Roadside Romeo (animation)

Cast: Voice of Saif Ali Khan, Kareena Kapoor, Javed Jaffrey Direction: Jugal Hansraj :

THE animation is fine. The voice-overs are perfect. The backdrop is colourful. But the story is overridden with cliches. So what's new about a big fat doggy don, Charlie Anna, who takes hafta and terrorises the smaller doggies in his street. And what's new about a poodle-like night club singer who falls in love with a roadside Romeo because he's not like the other scruffy mongrels in her bustee. And finally, what's so original about the don and the doggone kutta being rivals in love! The story is completely predictable, as is the narration about an English-speaking dog, Romeo (Saif) who forms a street gang of his own and falls in love with pesky club dancer, Laila, who rehearses on roof tops in full moon nights. Romeo sets up a thriving saloon and ends up collecting a treasure of bones which soon become a bone of contention between him and the neigbourhood dada, Charlie Anna (Javed). Romeo not only refuses to pay the mandatory hafta , he also dares to fall in love with Anna's fav girl, Laila. Time for a real gang warfare. Only, Romeo isn't a bloodhound and prefers to get away with a bit of trick and treat. Eventually, it's Dogvilla against the predator humans and both Anna and Romeo do their little bit to keep the Doggy paradise safe and sound.

What's going on with my lower back when I wake up in the morning? I just feel changes. “And I'm definitely fearful in a very vain manner about my body ageing. I think it's freaky weird to look at a picture of your grandmother when she was a young woman and look at her now,” she said.

Meet the hottest Bond stars of all time

Sean Connery rules the roost when it comes to playing James Bond, with new polls naming him the best 007 spy ever.

Two separate polls of 25,000 Bond fans were conducted to mark the release of new Bond flick ‘Quantum Of Solace’. As many as 23,000 film fans in a poll by MSN Movies, and 2,500 in a survey by online rental firm LoveFilm were quizzed on their perfect movie. The majority preferred Connery, the original Bond, as their choice for playing the role of the super spy. Winning almost half the votes in his favour, the 78-year-old star has left behind current Bond Daniel Craig, 40, who came second with a quarter votes. The perfect baddie in the perfect Bond flick, according to fans, would be Jaws, played by Richard Kiel in ‘The Spy Who Loved Me’ and ‘Moonraker’, winning almost one third of votes in its favour. And, 46 years after she came out of the sea in a white bikini in ‘Dr No’, Ursula Andress, 72, was voted as the sexiest Bond girl till date. And the best name amongst all 007 flicks was Pussy Galore, played by Honor Blackman in Goldfinger. The saucy Famke Janssen was the ultimate femme fatale as Xenia Onatopp—all thanks to her fight with Pierce Brosnan. Daniel Craig’s combat with baddie Mollaka in the opening of ‘Casino Royale’ was best fight, and Roger Moore’s ski chase and parachute jump in ‘The Spy Who Loved Me’ turned out to be the top stunt. “It’s no surprise that Sean Connery comes out as the nation’s favourite, together with Ursula Andress, the sexiest without a doubt!” British tabloid The Sun quoted Graham Rye, editor of 007 Magazine, as saying.

Shilpa Shetty has always been the hottest bod in the business. And this time she's out to prove it. In the good 'ol days, our Indian actresses didn't dare to bear. But now they seem to give in to their 'script's demands' and get under their character's skin so much that the character's skin actually shows – the curves, cleavage, cracks and what not!

And though Shilpa had a body to die for – every woman's envy and every man's treat – it was Kareena Kapoor's bikin show in Tashan and 'size zero' hungama that was the talk of the town - this after Esha Deol's flashboard abs display in Dhoom , Aishwarya's crazy avatar in Dhoom 2 , and Bipasha Basu's sizzling hot body in the same film.

It was then Minissha Lamba's turn. The girl lost her baby fat and transformed into babe in Sanjay Gadhvi's Kidnap . She wore the bikini, swam the deep seas and walked on cloud no. 9. She made it to the front pages, too. As if this wasn't enough, Priyanka Chopra now has us stunned in Dostana . Her emergence in a golden swimsuit from the clear blue waters ala Ursula Andress has the men ogling at her in a way never imagined. The sweet girl next door has now become a 'golden fantasy' for most.

So while these women are being talked about and dreamt of, where is the original hot bod Shilpa Shetty? Well, she was nowhere in the picture, until now! The girl who had disappeared in the oblivion – thanks to her no body show - now appears from the horizon having surrendered to the two-piece in Karan Johar's Dostana . And the original hot bod is all set to win back the 'hot' trophy, and have the men and women returning to her, her oomphy status all over again!

In this fight of the water babies, who'll make the maximum waves? Who cares, as long as all and sundry are loving this tornado that has struck Bollywood!

Whitney Houston's ravaged voice

Whitney Houston's voice was almost destroyed by drugs:
Following years of heavy smoking and drug abuse, Whitney's singing was reportedly unrecognizable when she began recording her new album.
A source told Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper: "She was smoking a lot and taking a lot of drugs. Her voice was almost unrecognizable."
Whitney - once dubbed 'The Voice' for her five octave range - was sent for singing lessons by industry executive Clive Davis and is now back to her high-note best.
The source added:
"Thousands have been shelled out to train her back up to the original. But now she sounds terrific - she is going to blow everybody away."
Whitney's new, as yet untitled comeback album, is set for a November release.
In 2006, Tina Brown - the sister of Whitney's now ex-husband Bobby Brown - claimed Whitney was living in squalor, and hopelessly addicted to crack cocaine.
She released photographs to a US magazine showing the star's bathroom littered with drug paraphernalia, including a crack pipe.


No Hot Scenes in Doll’s Night, Just Verbal Seduction

Sulaf Fawakhergy, Syrian diva, co-starred in Lailat Al Baby Doll (Baby Doll Night) with Nour Al Sheriff and Mahmoud Abdel Aziz. This is our exclusive interview with her.

You work with one Production Company only. Right?
Actually, my role is a sort of light comedy. Indeed, I don’t have to play tragic or multi-layered roles all along. New is good. That’s why I agreed to do that role in the first place. I also think because my role was not that huge, viewers didn’t get what they expected, especially I act in front of big stars.

Didn’t you get worried over bold statements?
Um, well, I think Baby Doll Night implies hot scenes. Truth is, I don’t do any hot scenes, only verbal seduction, you may say.

Your career steps seem a bit slow compared, let’s say, to Jumanah Murad.
That’s not a race! Indeed, compared to Murad who started her career here in Egypt, mine has started in Syria. I need to be fully aware of which steps to take in Egypt or Syria. That’s what I believe in.

“She’s just another pretty actress.” You agree to that?
Well, yeah, partly. That’s why I declined scripts where I am shown as a sort of model or romantic girl. This is something I stick to since early starts in Syria.

You always have unachievable terms. How much is that true?
I believe that’s my own right. However, I don’t think I ask for too much as a pay. But, if you mean so-called “youth movies” I decline either because of a bad script or I don’t have much time.

How about Asmahan? Rumors have it you were third recommendation.
That’s not true. As a matter fact, I’ve heard that since last year, before script was even written. But I’m telling you I was a first recommendation.

You agree to Abbass Al Noury’s attack on Egyptian TV drama?
He speaks only for himself. Plus, Egypt remains a leading force in Arab TV drama industry.

But don’t you think attack generates more attack?
When Syrian stars participate in Egyptian works now that’s a win-win situation. Egypt has great attraction for all artists. In fact, Syrian stars love Egypt. I’m all for common productions, which is an actual benefit to all.

How about your TV ads?
I didn’t go for money in the first place. Now movies help me earn a good living. The point is an artist should be true to herself for whatever product she features.

Your frequent travel between Egypt and Syria doesn’t have an impact on your family life?
Nope. I can mange. Plus, dad helps me. For sure, I’m keen to see Hamza, my son, every morning before he goes to school but when I travel anywhere mom is a good replacement.

Mona Zaki

Shahrazad’s tales unveils the agony of Egyptian women:
On the shores of Alexandria and for four days, the director Youssry Nasrallah began filming the first scenes of his new movie “Ehki Ya Shahrazad”, Nassrallah then headed to Cairo in order to finish shooting the remaining outdoor scenes in some of the capital’s neighborhoods as agreed upon with his cast, currently shooting is held in the streets of Al-Manial.
Nasrallah had held some intensive working sessions for the film written by the scenarist Wahid Hamed and stars Mona Zaki in her first appearance after an absence of two years following the screening of her last movie” Timour W Shafiqa” alongside Ahmed Al-Sakka..
“Ehki Ya Shahrazad” depicts the Egyptian society’s view of women in general, through the stories of some young people with a specific girl in the form of the earliest tales of the “Thousand and One Nights” but in a contemporary way.
It is noteworthy to mention the nomination of the singer Ruby to take part in the movie and the fact that she declined to participate despite the effectiveness of the role given to her. Ruby confirmed that she’s always wished to work with Mona Zaki, but found that the filming schedule would conflict with the shooting of the other movie she’s participating in already starring Mahmoud Yassine, Asser Yassine, Bassem Samra. Thus she preferred to decline the role so that she wouldn’t cause problems.
Mona Zaki said: “The movie is very interesting, its theme’s truly important and serious, and deals with the hard reality that women are subjected to, especially the illiterate, poor ones”.
“Ehki Ya Shahrazad” stars Mona Zaki, Mahmoud Hemeida, Hassan Al-Raddad and the Jordanian Saba Moubarak. The producing company has assigned a 7 million L.E budget for the movie.

Damon wants daughters to follow him

Hollywood actor Matt Damon wants his daughters to grow up into humanitarians without celebrity lifestyle going to their head.

The Talented Mr. Ripley actor, who is very popular for his philanthropic efforts in Africa and around the world, want to see his daughters following in his footsteps. "It's a hard thing to explain to a kid. And it is also unbelievable the way other kids are forced to live,” Contactmusic quoted Damon, as saying. Damon wants Isabella, 2; two-month-old Gia and step-daughter Alexia, 10, to accompany him for charitable work in impoverished parts of the world and witness the importance of life. "The way you have to parent them is to show them the world. Explaining the world can only go so far. You can read about devastation every morning ¨C it's on the front page of the newspaper ¨C but when you actually go there and see it, you realize this isn't something you can turn the

Days Of Glory (Movie Review)

Days Of Glory (action)
Cast: Jamel Debbouze, Samy Naceri, Roschdy Zem
Direction: Rachid Bouchareb

DURING World War 11, there were a number of Algerian soldiers who fought for France against the Nazis. Till today, their contribution to the cause of liberty, fraternity, equality remains mostly unacknowledged and it was only after this film that the pensions of these soldiers which had been stopped midway was reportedly resumed. The film documents the heroism of these soldiers who may have fought shoulder to shoulder with the white men, but were denied equality. Not only were their rations and pay scale different, they were also denied promotions, despite their plea that bullets never differentiated amongst their targets in the battlefield. Their story of racism and indignity is primarily told through the experiences of four Algerian soldiers who stand up tall before the ravages of war and manage to hold on to a French town from the advancing Nazis, despite being low on ammunition and numbers. Completely denied their due, distanced from their families, the foursome continue to doggedly fight for a bunch of abstract principles...the only cause worth dying and living for. Gritty cinema; a great message: This is Saving Private Ryan with a whole new topicality attached to it, specially when the war against terror is being fought by multi-cultural, multi-national armies made up of natives and the white man. Watch out for the stirring performances by the four lead players. The film was Algeria's official entry for Best Foreign film at the Oscars and ended up winning accolades.

Dannii Minogue facing X-factor exit?

The feud between X factor judges Dannii Minogue and Simon Cowell is getting worse day by day, sparking rumours that the Aussie singer might just

According to a helper on the show named Sinitta, the tension between them is raging out of control. “It’s getting worse as the weeks go by,” the Daily Star quoted her as saying. “I sit behind them as the show is going out and you can feel the tension between them. When we go to the ads it gets worse,” she added. Minogue had claimed that Cowell was getting old and forgetful and needed cue cards. “But it’s backfiring in her face,” Sinitta said. “Simon’s deliberately forgetting the name of her acts to undermine her. “I wouldn’t be surprised if he pretends to forget her name this week!” “Dannii’s annoyed because last year Simon was all over her and this year he hardly notices she’s there. “She’s been openly criticising him on live telly, which is definitely not a good idea,” she added.

Alien ambassador Robbie Williams

Robbie Williams could be abducted by aliens any day and become an ambassador for their race.
The pop star is a "point man" for extraterrestrials and will soon start a new religion in their honor, according to the director of the New York Centre for Extraterrestrial Research Michael C. Luckman.
Luckman - the author of 'Alien Rock: The Rock 'n' Roll Extraterrestrial Connection' - has been following Robbie, 34, closely as he has devoted more and more time to UFO-spotting and says he is sure aliens are using Robbie as their representative on Earth.
He told Bang Showbiz: "Robbie is now becoming a point man for contact with extraterrestrials. None of the experiences I've seen are in the same category of what Robbie appears to have experienced. Robbie could easily disappear and then come back as an ambassador for their race.
"He is the first celebrity I know to actually go out there and actively hunt for alien life forms. He's unusually pro-active, even putting his musical career on hold. And he is more likely to make contact because of where he is spiritually - he takes it to the max."
Luckman believes it is only a matter of time before Robbie is beamed into space, but insists the 'Angels' singer needs to consult scientists to prepare for any close encounters of the third kind.
He said: "This is an unprecedented situation, there's no guidebook. The aliens could be 1,000 times more intelligent, perhaps 100,000 times more intelligent than humans. Robbie is likely to experience enormous culture shock when he comes face-to-face with creatures from another world. He needs to know how to deal with it."
Robbie - who has become a virtual recluse in recent months as his obsession with aliens has increased - has previously said he may give up music to become a full time ufologist and claims he has had three alien encounters.
He says the first was when he saw a "square thing" pass 300 feet above his head while he relaxed on a sun lounger at the Beverley Hills hotel in California. The second was while he was playing a song he wrote about alien contact called 'Arizona'.
Robbie also says while he was in a recording studio a "big strip of black light" miraculously appeared in the room.

Sir Sean Connery has announced that he has quit acting.

The Goldfinger star, who has had a series of successful movies including 'Entrapment' and 'Dr. No' is living happily with his wife Micheline in their New York apartment, and says nothing could make him return to the big screen.
Connery said: "There is nothing that will persuade me to get back into acting. It's over - I will never, ever do another film."
Connery’s wife Micheline, who has been married to the actor for 22 years, doesn’t think that the 77- year old actor will stick to his vow.
She said that he’s said that 2 times before and then ended up doing another one.
Connery recently revealed he was forced to stop writing his autobiography because it was giving him nightmares.
The screen legend was planning on setting the record straight with his own memoirs, after being left fuming by the "lies" written about him in previous unauthorized biographies.
However, he decided not to put pen to paper after a series of sleepless nights and terrifying dreams caused by the stress of writing.
He said: "It was giving me really bad nightmares and I wasn't sleeping. I don't think I am cut out for introspection!"

Harry Potters sixth instalment is not for kids anymore

Harry Potter and his fellow wizards attending Hogwarts will continue to work on their teen issues on screen in the next instalment of the movie.
During the next film ‘Harry Potter And The Half-Blood Prince’, all cast members will be dealing with more than share of adult issues, including, love triangles and jealous ex-girlfriends.
Director David Yates reportedly stated that the sixth instalment is the “sex, drugs, and rock and roll” of the “Potter” franchise.
A relationship triangle starts to develop between Ron and Hermione, and Ron and Lavender, which is bound to be rather interesting to watch.
Though the wizards and witches will experience social growing pains, the next instalment just might be the Potter film that has the audience laughing.
Daniel Radcliffe told MTV ‘If we pull it off right, it should be the funniest of the films so far’
Something that might be making the actors laugh with a little nervous energy could be the on-screen lip-locking between these young wizards and witches.
Actress Bonnie Wright, who plays Ginny Weasley, Ron’s sister, who’s had quite a crush on Harry, told MTV, ‘It’ll be funny to do the love scenes, but it’s just a film! Hopefully people will just enjoy it and not get too jealous.’
Radcliffe is also feeling the awkwardness of “Half-Blood Prince’s” love scenes.
“I knew Bonnie when she was 10, so that’s going to be very odd! It’s going to be fine, but it’s going to be funny,” Radcliffe told MTV with a laugh.

Nicolette Sheridan's ex plans a Tell-all Book

Nicolette Sheridan's ex-boyfriend is set to publish a Tell all book revealing all details about his previous romance with the actress and her "bitter flights" with her co-stars in the hit series Desperate Housewives.
Sheridan ditched Swedish personal trainer Nicklas Soderblom in 2005 when she began dating singer Michael Bolton.
Three years on, Soderblom has teamed up with journalist Bonnie Robinson and is trying to find a publisher for his tell-all book, reports the New York Post.
Robinson claims the book - Not A Desperate Houseman - contains "many, many insights" about "jealousies, fights, etc" on the Desperate Housewives set.
She describes Soderblom as "a man who fell passionately in love with a self-centered celebrity" and that Sheridan was "a stressed out middle-aged woman in Hollywood who sees Desperate Housewives as her last big break".
Robinson adds that the actress is "barely interested in sex; except as a means of manipulation to get what she wants. In fact, she couldn't be more opposite in real life than the sexy Edie Britt she portrays on Desperate Housewives".
On the other hand, Nicolette is said to have stopped eating meat to please her fiancé Michael Bolton, who is a strict vegan.
Nicolette is adjusting her diet to more closely match Bolton's who avoids meat, dairy and anything made from animal products.
According to a friend of the couple, "He's pushing Nicolette to give up meat because watching her eat a lamb chop grosses him out.
"He convinced her that it will keep her caloric intake down."
The celebrity couple, who first dated in the mid 1990s, recently announced their engagement after renewing their relationship in November of the year 2005 and are currently planning their wedding.
The actress is open-minded about her new lifestyle choice, but is taking things one day at a time.
The friend adds, "She's trying, but she does sneak a chicken now and then."

Campbell and Posh finally end their eight-year feud

The fashion world will be rejoicing a long-awaited day of peace after Naomi Campbell and Posh Spice finally ended an eight-year feud.
Posh risked crushing the pretty frills on her dress as she warmly hugged the towering supermodel in front of guests at the CFDA Fashion Awards in New York.
The public display of affection comes almost eight years since one of the ugliest public wars of words erupted when Campbell sarcastically asked why Beckham had been called 'Posh'.
Sharp-tongued Beckham quickly hit back calling the 38-year-old a 'massive cow' and 'a bitch', saying 'I'm the only one with the guts to say it'.
Matters were made worse when Beckham then ousted Campbell as the face of Damon Dash's ROCAWEAR fashion line four years ago.
Fiery Campbell, 38, first offered an olive branch to Posh last year when she attempted to get Beckham on board to support her 'Fashion for Relief' flood campaign.
She swallowed her pride and said: 'I will approach her because she is such a massive fashion personality.'
Now it seems Posh, 34, has taken pity on her old nemesis who is also facing the prospect of jail following a bout of air rage with British Airways.
Campbell last week was charged with six offences after she allegedly spat in a policewoman's face at Heathrow after her luggage was lost. She could face 18 months behind bars.

Johnny Depp's Matilda money

Johnny Depp, Colin Farrell and Jude Law have donated their earnings from new movie 'The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus' to Heath Ledger's daughter Matilda.
The actors - who replaced Heath following his death from an accidental prescription drugs overdose in January - wanted to give their money to Heath's two-year-old child with actress Michelle Williams to ensure she has a secure future.
The movie's director Terry Gilliam said: "The three actors were totally heroic coming in. This doesn't happen very often - where there's a tragedy like this, and very famous, very successful actors suddenly say, 'OK, we'll do whatever it takes to help.'
"They came, they did the work, they allowed the movie to be finished, they didn't take money - the money goes to Heath's daughter. That's extraordinary!
"I am so glad these guys are so humble. That's why they make a great addition to the film. It will be bittersweet seeing this movie knowing he was filming it only days before he died. This picture still hurts to see because as we all know he did die a couple of days after this picture was taken. My thoughts will always be with Heath."
Johnny, Colin and Jude will all play Heath's character Tony as he is transported into three separate dimensions, which he accesses via a paranormal mirror belonging to a travelling theatre troupe.

Sean Connery Being a Scot

Scottish James Bond legend Sean Connery has launched a new book tilted Being a Scot, however the book has failed to impress fans and readers as the book mentions very little about his role as a British secret agent.
The book allowed anyone to observe his memoirs about Scottish culture and its life, the gothic tendency in Scots literature, architecture and sports.
A vocal supporter of the pro-independence Scottish National Party, Sean Connery lives in the Bahamas and vows he will stay there until Scotland gains independence from the United Kingdom.
Despite the fact that he has let his fans down this time, none the less Sean Connery was the first, and is possibly still the most beloved, of the actors to play superspy James Bond in feature films.

George Clooney Back With Krista Allen?

The 47-year-old most wanted bachelor might be out dating again!It’s been alleged recently that Hollywood’s most wanted bachelor is back to dating his former girlfriend Krista Allen.

According to the twice titled “Sexiest Man Alive” ’s friends, Clooney and Allen have stayed in touch throughout all these years, obviously because the 37-year-old actress just couldn’t get over the heartthrob artist, and it feeling seems like the feeling’s reciprocal, as Clooney apparently really loves her.
Clooney, who’s the object of every lady’s infatuation, has tied the knot only once in the 80’s when he married the actress Talia Balsam, and ever since their divorce, Hollywood’s most wanted bachelor has sworn not to get married again or have children before the age of 50!

Naomi Campbell taken the legal way to slam rumours of her pregnancy.

The catwalk queen’s lawyers have, on her behalf, claimed that the rumours of her pregnancy were "absolutely false and fabricated,” reports the New York Post.

The rumours of her pregnancy started after she expressed the desire to have a kid in an interview with the Daily Mail.

 "I'd love to have a baby. It's every woman's dream and I feel that's a huge part of my life that I'm yet to experience,” she said in the interview.

The 38-year-old supermodel is dating Russian billionaire Vladislav Doronin.

Madge, Guy to stay friends?

Despite their ongoing divorce process, Madonna and Guy Ritchie, who have been ‘struggling for a while’, will remain friends, according to the woman
who introduced the couple.

Trudie Styler, who introduced the duo at a lunch party at her Wiltshire mansion in 1998, revealed that she trusted both the celebrities to be mature and get along well for the sake of their children. “Obviously they’ve been struggling for a while,” the Daily Express quoted the film producer as saying at a gala at the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York. “They’re both big enough people to become great friends in time, and I’m sure they will for the sake of their kids, if nothing else,” she added. The wife of the musician Sting, who is also the godmother of the couple’s eldest son Rocco, aged eight, further added that it was sad their relationship had reached its end. She said: “I wish them both well. I love them both. They’re dear friends but all good things sometimes come to an end.”

Damon 'honored' by Joe the Plumber's shout-out

SAN FRANCISCO – Matt Damon is honored that the most recent celebrity of the presidential campaign — "Joe the Plumber" — dropped his name in an interview.
"That was a surprise. I hadn't heard that Joe the Plumber dropped my name," Damon said. "I'm honored to be in the little passion play, to be an extra."
The plumber, whose real name is Samuel Wurzelbacher, became an overnight media sensation after he was referred to constantly in the final presidential debate. When the press arrived at his Ohio home, Wurzelbacher, a Republican, said he hoped he wouldn't make a fool of himself with all the attention, "I don't have a lot of pull. It's not like I'm Matt Damon."
Damon — a hardcore Democrat who has spent as much time campaigning for Barack Obama recently than he has acting — was in San Francisco promoting a charity, OneXOne (pronounced One-by-One).
Along with hip-hop artist Wyclef Jean, Damon was promoting the group's work to end hunger and suffering for children in poverty in the U.S. and Africa.
The actor said he's headed to Florida this weekend to work with the Obama campaign on getting out the vote in a key battleground state. After that, Damon is off to Morocco to finish shooting a movie, but he said he would stay engaged with the Obama campaign.
"I'm sure I'll be on the phone over there after filming every night," he said. "I'll do telephone interviews or whatever they'll have me do. I want to sprint to the finish with the millions of us who really have been desperate for this change."
Damon previously had been openly critical of John McCain's running mate, Sarah Palin, calling the campaign's pick for the vice presidency "a disaster." On Thursday, Damon said he would not comment on the Republican ticket.
"The Obama campaign has decided to focus on the positive, and I should be a bigger man and be able to do that with them," Damon said.

"I Am ... Sasha Fierce" will be distributed by Columbia Records.

Just like the "Seinfeld" episode where George wanted everyone to call him "T-Bone," Beyonce Knowles would like to be known by a bold new name.
The R&B singer has christened herself "Sasha Fierce" for her new double album, "I Am ... Sasha Fierce," due in U.S. stores on November 18, and has released a lengthy justification for the comical moniker.
"I have someone else that takes over when it's time for me to work and when I'm on stage, this alter ego that I've created that kind of protects me and who I really am," the former Destiny's Child frontwoman said in a statement.

Additionally, she has set up a cryptic MySpace page ( that gives a "lucky person" the opportunity to receive a personal message and a gift bag valued at $500.
As George found out, nicknames usually do not work when they are self-bestowed. His colleagues thought he should be called Koko the monkey. In real life, rapper Eminem had better luck with his alter ego "Slim Shady," which he said came to him while he was on the toilet.
Beyonce released her previous solo album, "B'Day," to coincide with her 25th birthday in September 2006. It debuted at No. 1 on the U.S. pop chart and yielded the No. 1 single "Irreplaceable."
"I Am ... Sasha Fierce" will be distributed by Columbia Records.

Paris denies cheating on Benji

Hollywood socialite Paris Hilton has rebuffed claims that she is cheating on beau Benji Madden with Britain’s Prince William.
Paris, who celebrated her eight-month anniversary with beau Benji, ridiculed rumours linking him with the Royal, and denied sending any kind of text to the prince. "They''re very nice boys, very down to earth and sweet but there's nothing romantic going on at all. They just came up and said hello. There's no texting going on; I'm reading that I invited them to Las Vegas to a club - that never happened,” Contactmusic quoted Paris, as saying. "I have a boyfriend, it's an eight month anniversary today. I would never say that in a million years and it just annoys me that particularly the media out in the UK, they will not only make up stories, they'll also go as far to make up quotes that I supposedly said,” she added. As for her rendezvous with the majesty, she found the prince to be totally down to earth without any flirting at all. "William was really nice... Harry was with his girlfriend, Chelsea, who was so stunning, beautiful and sweet... They were just very friendly, they weren't flirting at all,” she said. "I'm taken, I don't put it out that I'm single. Before, I wasn't in love... I would never hurt him (Madden),” she added.

Beyonce 'excited' about married life

Popstar Beyonce Knowles has revealed that she is extremely excited about her marital status.

However, the singer, who was pretty adamant on keeping her wedding to JayZ covert, admits it is taking time for her to get used to her new relationship status, reports China Daily. "This is a new chapter for me. I'm terrified, but excited. It's like I'm a new woman!" Beyonce said. Beyonce also revealed that her husband Jay Z has inspired a lot of songs in her new album. “I am happy right now and this album has a lot of love songs that talk about my emotions - me naked with my heart exposed,” she added.

Gisele sparks wedding rumours

Supermodel Gisele Bundchen has raised eyebrows speculating that she might tie the knot with beau Tom Brady after reportedly planning a wedding recep
tion at a New York restaurant.

According to the New York Post , the Brazilian model has approached party planners at the renowned Tavern on the Green in Central Park to plan the occasion marking their union. The 28-year-old, who according to ‘Forbes’ is the highest-paid model in the world, began dating the New England Patriots star soon after her much-publicized split from Leonardo DiCaprio. "They were recently there, and Brady had a long chat with (American football star) Joe Namath," Contactmusic quoted a source as telling the newspaper. Reps of both Gisele and Tavern on the Green have refused to comment on the reports.

The many Khans in Preity’s life

The bubbly and beautiful Preity Zinta is one of the few actresses who have worked with all the hottest Khans in B-town. Just a few days away from the release of her flick, Heroes, where she is romantically paired opposite Salman Khan, she chats up with Indiatimes Movies and reveals all that there is about her and the Khans! While she rates all the four Khans - Shahrukh, Salman, Aamir and Saif, extremely high on their ‘sex appeal’, there are a few things that are different and unique about each one of them and Preity spills all the beans here.

Shahrukh Khan:
He is extremely witty and his humour is instant. You start a conversation with him and he is quick to retort in the wittiest way possible, like a skilled repartee.

Salman Khan:
Salman has a very Indian style to his humour. He has no expression on his face when he is cracking a joke. Is very straight faced even when he is funny and that sometimes confuses you.

Aamir Khan:
We all know that Aamir is a perfectionist and whatever he does, he does it with passion. And the same holds true when he is cracking a joke too. “Aamir is seriously funny when it comes to humour,” reveals the actress.

Saif Ali Khan:
Saif’s humorous side has a very Brit style to it. He is very dry and stiff even when funny. One can rarely make out if Saif is just making a plain statement or means something funny. Perhaps, this aspect has to do with the London-England upbringing of the star.

You can expect the best of food in the dabbas of Akshay Kumar and Bobby Deol. But when it comes to the Khans ...,” Preity continues... Shahrukh Khan: SRK is a chicken freak! He can have chicken in all his meals and still not get bored of it. Though his dabba is a simple fare, chicken is always on his menu! Salman Khan: Salman’s dabba is always something to look forward to. One can often find Mughlai cuisine in his dabba and it is complete party time when he gets Mutton Biryani ... though our diet goes for a toss hogging on the masaledaar oil rich food! Aamir Khan: Aamir is one person who has an excellent taste in food and eats everything. He is very simple in his food habits and eats whatever is there on his plate. Saif Ali Khan: “Saif can’t cook to save his life...,” says the chirpy actress. “But he is knowledgeable about all cuisines... like a food connoisseur,” she adds. He can have a Sushi at a Japanese joint and sip French wine at a café in Paris or then savour the Dal Makhani or Tandoori Chicken at a local dhabha in Punjab.

Miss Pettigrew Lives For A Day (Movie Review)

Miss Pettigrew Lives For A Day (drama)
Cast: Amy Adams, Frances McDormand, Ciaran Hinds
Direction: Bharat Nalluri

MANOJ Night Shyamalan might soon not be the only desi out there, for Bharat Nalluri has created waves with his debut venture: a wacky comedy that re-creates the 1940s in London, even as it unfolds like a sweet, lyrical fairy tale about love and ever-after. The film traces a day in the life of Mrs Pettigrew (Frances McDormand), a woman who is hungry, friendless and minus a job as she walks through the streets of a city that is a strange contrast. On the one hand, London is quintessential Dicken's as it prepares for war and on the other, there is the gilded society that couldn't care less for the harsh realities of life. Our desperate woman seeks temporary refuge with a young singer (Amy Adams) who must practise time-management between her three suitors. More importantly, she must decide between the three and settle for love or career. Now that's not such a difficult task with the sensible Mrs Pettigrew around to tutor her. But will our delightfully destitute heroine find the love of her life too? Why not! Believe in the fairy tale. Believe in Frances McDormand, who pitches in a perfect act. And believe in the magic of zany, unconventional storytelling.

Anne's new sexy mystery man

Hollywood actress Anne Hathaway has revealed that after her break-up with conman Raffaelo Follieri, she has developed liking for a new ‘sexy’ mystery man.
The ‘ Enchanted’ actress recently told on the “ Saturday Night live ” show that she was in a state of shock after Follieri was arrested. "This guy I know in L.A. is kind of doing it for me right now, when I think of sexy, I think of him,” the New York Daily News quoted her as telling People magazine. "You know when sometimes you don't know someone very well – you'll probably never see them again – but you just meet them and you're like 'Wow, you really have it going on'?" she added. However, a spokesman maintained that Anne was not dating anyone.
