Lily Allen thought her photo of herself being arrested would make people “smile” (see what I did there, thanks) but actually, it made Australian police frown.
Ms. Allen thought it would be fun to get a shot of Australian police handcuffing her and her technicolor hair for her Instagram…and now an official police investigation is being launched to basically decide who the hell thought that would be a good idea. From TMZ:
The Australian Federal Police say officers were escorting Allen through Gold Coast Airport when she jokingly asked one of the cops to handcuff her … and she posted the picture on Instagram.
The AFP wasn’t happy about it and launched an investigation … acknowledging protocols were breached but then kind of justifying it by saying the officers were “caught in the moment.”
The photo has since been removed from her Instagram account, but TMZ got a snap before its disappearance:
Personally, I think it was a baaaad idea, and I think she realized that and deleted it.
What do you think of the pic?

Daniel Radcliffe is talking about the loss of his virginity in Elle magazine, and apparently, it was a pleasant experience for the Harry Potter actor. The magazine asked if he would do anything differently about losing his virginity and he replied,
I’m one of the few people who seem to have had a really good first time.
[...] It was with somebody I’d gotten to know well. I’m happy to say I’ve had a lot better sex since then, but it wasn’t as horrendously embarrassing as a lot of other people’s were—like my friend who got drunk and did it with a stranger under a bridge.
The interview also mentioned his previous problems with alcohol, and asked if sex was better drunk or sober. He said,
For some people sex might be better drunk, but for me—and the person I’m doing it with—it’s much better sober.
So file that away if you’re ever planning to have sex with Daniel Radcliffe. And if you’re going to do it, maybe ask him to lose the hair extensions. For me, that’s the dealbreaker.

Susan Sarandon is now someone I’m jealous of, as the actress banged David Bowie in the 1980′s while working on the film The Hunger. (Between this and going to awards shows stoned, she’s gotta be the coolest, right?) She talked about it with The Daily Beast, saying, via Daily News:
He’s worth idolizing. He’s extraordinary.
(He’s) just a really interesting person, and so bright. He’s a talent and a painter, and… he’s great.
Apparently they “parted ways” because Sarandon didn’t want children at the time.
Listen, when David Bowie wants to have your children, you have David Bowie’s children. (Bowie is currently married to supermodel Iman. They have a daughter together.) I don’t even WANT children, but for Bowie…
But that’s me. Which rock star would YOU give it up for?

Did you know that Jenny McCarthy and Melissa McCarthy are cousins? Makes sense, but it still blew my mind. It’s pretty easy to blow my mind, actually. Like learning that Jason Biggs isn’t Jewish totally blew my mind.
ANYWAY, Jenny is denying reports that she told Melissa to lose weight. She tweeted,
Hey media outlets! The story about my cousin Melissa and I is bullshit. I’m proud of her & would never say such hurtful words. Shame on you.
And also talked about it with PEOPLE, saying,
There is a crazy story going around that I once told my cousin, Melissa, that she would have to lose weight in order to get into show business. Nothing could be further from the truth.
Though she helped cousin Melissa get her foot in the door, she credits Melissa’s success to one person only — Melissa.
She has accomplished everything she has accomplished through hard work and her extraordinary talent, and I’ve only ever encouraged and supported and wished her the very best.
Oh, and one more thing. Melissa McCarthy isn’t banned from Jenny McCarthy’s upcoming wedding, either:
[It's] ridiculous. Donnie and I are planning a very intimate ceremony that will involve a very small group of our closest friends and that’s it – not a huge production with hundreds of friends and extended families.
That seems a little odd — I would absolutely invite my cousin to my wedding, but I guess they’re just not as close as we are. So there you go, now you know the whole scoop on the celebrity cousins. The question is, do you care? DUN DUN DUNNNNNN.

Ben Affleck is playing Batman and we’re all just going to have to deal with that. Director Zack Snyder, of the upcoming Batman V. Superman posted a tweet featuring a photo of Ben Affleck as Batman, AKA, Batfleck. Accompanying the tweet was simply “#75″. Here it is:
What do we think? There’s not a whole lot to go on. I’m impressed, he definitely looks like Batman, even with his Affleck chin. Does this make you more or less excited for the film?

Gwyenth Paltrow and Chris Martin announced their “conscious uncoupling” earlier this year, but there have been a million and one rumours about the possibility of them getting back together. They’re constantly hanging out together – more than any separated people usually do, even with kids in the picture – but don’t get ahead of yourself, because they’re not reuniting, they just really care about each other. BORING.
From 104.3′s Valentine in the Morning (via US Weekly):
“The truth is — well, I don’t really love talking about this stuff. But the thing we told everyone at the beginning of the year is true,” the 37-year-old said. “We are very close, we are not together. But, we’re…you know…that’s the truth… and uh, that’s it.”
“You know, there’s a lot of love,” he continued. “So there’s nothing — there’s no scandal I’m afraid. I wish i could give you scandal.”
Chris has always come off as a really decent guy, so I’m not surprised that he’s handled this entire thing in such a quiet and dignified way. It’s also really great for their kids that this whole thing has gone so smoothly. The last thing kids need is messy ass parents – especially famous ones – ruining their lives with unnecessary drama.
