Secret Affair of Angelina Jolie and Leonardo DiCaprio

Angelina Jolie's maneating reputation just hiked up several notches following revelations she has been involved in a secret affair with Leonardo DiCaprio. According to an upcoming book by celebrity biographer Andrew Morton, the sexy pair took a shower together at Leo's hotel suite, but Angelina reportedly told her friends that there was “little sexual rapport” between them. Never mind - apparently she got busy pursuing a married co-star - and we're not talking about Brad Pitt!

Apparently Angelina, like the rest of the universe, was very interested in Johnny Depp. “If she could get something going with Depp, she would leave Brad," a friend was quoted as saying.

They're both hot and kooky - we can see the appeal! Pretty glad that we didn't see the break-up of two young families, though - Angie homewrecking the Depps as well as splitting up her giant family would just be gross.

Aweful Catwalk At Paris Haute Couture week

A model wearing Elie Saab trips up on the catwalk

The models tripped in the show for Lebanese designer Elie Saab's autumn/winter 2010/11 collection, which featured "goddess" gowns. But the gowns proved too hard to handle for two of the models in the show, both falling into heaps in front of the packed audience. Saab's show took inspiration from the concept of the Phoenix rising from the ashes, the UK's Telegraph newspaper reports.

Madonna with her 'granny hands'

The 51-year-old is reportedly consulting her dermatologist Dr Fredric Brandt to combat the protruding veins in her ‘old lady’ hands which are sign of her real age. She’s managed to work wonders with her face over the past few years thanks to Dr. Brandt, but her hands have always been the big age giveaway.

A source told the Sunday Mirror, ''Madonna hates the appearance of her hands and says they are too ‘old lady’.''

The Material Girl is said to be considering chemical peels, intense sessions of microdermabrasion, and injectable fillers. And she's apparently already started a course of fillers and scierotherapy - where a solution is injected into a vein to turn it white and cause it to gradually disappear.

Madonna covers up on stage since the gossip magazine noticed her granny hands

In the meantime, it looks as though the Queen of Pop is doing her utmost to keep her hands hidden.

The source added: “She can’t channel Michael Jackson and wear gloves everywhere.

The Twilight Saga: Eclipse

Rated: [ M ]

Cinema release: 1 Jul 2010

Director: David Slade

Running time: 124 mins

Stars: Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner

As a string of mysterious killings grips Seattle, Bella, whose high school graduation is fast approaching, is forced to choose between her love for Edward and her friendship with Jacob.

Eclipse is better on just about every level than its predecessor: the action is more suspenseful and properly executed; the special effects are improved; the story flows comfortably; and most importantly, the performances are stronger. Robert Pattinson was so god-awful in New Moon that it's a miracle he delivers the goods in the third instalment as Edward Cullen. Gone is his constipated expression — instead he has fun with the role, see-sawing between serious Casanova and playful James Dean. Kristen Stewart is once again impressive as Bella, the human girl in a relationship with a 100-year-old vampire, while Taylor Lautner gives both a solid performance and the one thing the hordes of screaming Twi-hards want: bulging biceps.

Eclipse opens with the chilling murder of Riley (Australian actor Xavier Samuel) in Seattle. It seems a serial killer is on the loose, picking off innocents and turning them into blood-suckers. As an army of the undead builds, their mission becomes clear: they want Bella, forcing rival vampire and werewolf clans to unite in a deadly battle for supremacy.

Bella discovers it's not an entirely romantic notion — even the vampires themselves warn her against it. In the film's best scene, Rosalie (Nikki Reed) recalls the shocking, saddening events that led to her transformation.

The movie has pacing issues: early scenes that re-establish the central love triangle are too long and repetitive. But the second hour rockets along, building to an action-packed climax that allows Slade to showcase his deft hand at horror.
