Edward Furlong isn’t very good at the whole, stop assaulting women thing. And I guess he’s just crazy about jail. He’s probably going to go back for his latest assault and vandalism extravaganza. From TMZ:
“Terminator 2″ star Edward Furlong has just been charged with assaulting his ex-girlfriend and threatening her if she called the police … TMZ has learned.
35-year-old Furlong was arrested inside his ex’s West Hollywood home back in May on suspicion of violating a protective order she had obtained against him.
According to law enforcement, Furlong is accused of assaulting his ex during the incident, which is where the assault charge stems from.
In addition, Furlong has been charged with dissuading a witness by force or threat, as well as vandalism — for allegedly damaging her laptop and photo equipment during the dispute. All the charges are felonies.
Katy Perry has her first Vogue cover shoot and with it, a lengthy interview about all things Perry. And all things Perry include her 14 month marriage to David Lynch BFF, Russell Brand. Both she and Mr. Brand have discussed their marriage before. But in this interview, Ms. Perry gets a little…ominous. Gotta bring out your A-list material for Vogue, right?
He’s a very smart man, and I was in love with him when I married him. Let’s just say I haven’t heard from him since he texted me saying he was divorcing me December 31, 2011.
Ominous statement. Also, who the f-ck asks for a divorce via text? Dante’s gonna open up a whole new circle for people who ask for divorce via text.
There were signs of disrespect on Mr. Brand’s part for his wife and for their marriage. For example, Ms. Perry recalls a particular incident:
[He was] hysterical in some ways. Until he started making jokes about me and he didn’t know I was in the audience, because I had come to surprise him at one of his shows. So. Hysterical to a point. I mean, I have to claim my own responsibility in things. I do admit that I was on the road a lot. Although I invited him time and time again, and I tried to come home as much as I possibly could. You saw that in the movie.
Ms. Perry hints that the reason for their divorce may be a lot deeper, and possibly darker, than what we think it is. She reveals,
At first when I met him he wanted an equal, and I think a lot of times strong men do want an equal, but then they get that equal and they’re like, I can’t handle the equalness. He didn’t like the atmosphere of me being the boss on tour. So that was really hurtful, and it was very controlling, which was upsetting. I felt a lot of responsibility for it ending, but then I found out the real truth, which I can’t necessarily disclose because I keep it locked in my safe for a rainy day.
I let go and I was like: This isn’t because of me; this is beyond me. So I have moved on from that.
Wow. What could she mean by “the real truth”? It must be a real big one or she wouldn’t protect him. And whatever the secret is, she made it clear that it doesn’t have anything to do with her. It’s his issue. We’ve heard rumors that Brand cheated on her, but it sounds like this is more than that. It sounds Russell Brand relapsed into his sex addiction. He wrote a book that detailed his addiction to sex. This isn’t like “hardee har har he bangs lots of women it’s what he does”. It was a serious, dark problem that could have destroyed his career. He explains his addiction in My Booky Wook, via The Guardian:
Many people are sceptical about the idea of what I like to call “sexy addiction”, thinking it a spurious notion, invented primarily to help Hollywood film stars evade responsibility for their priapic excesses. But I reckon there is such a thing. Addiction, by definition, is a compulsive behaviour that you cannot control or relinquish, in spite of its destructive consequences. And if my life proves nothing else, it demonstrates that this formula can be applied to sex just as easily as it can be to drugs or alcohol, both of which I know more than a bit about.
He stayed at the KeyStone clinic to treat his “sexy addiction”.
It’s hard to get an exact number on how many addicts relapse. Given what we’ve seen happen though in the Entertainment Industry, we’ve seen certain people relapse quite a bit. So I wouldn’t be surprised if Brand’s (alleged) cheating was more than that; I wouldn’t be surprised if he relapsed and his addiction to sex is what ended their marriage.
But this is purely speculation on my part.

Old Hollywood has some of the best gossip stories. Thanks to the internet, many classic movie stars were able to escape potentially career-damaging rumors and blunders. Can you imagine Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin with twitter accounts? Sweet fancy moses, how entertaining would a drunk Dean Martin be on twitter? And you thought Amanda Bynes was a twitter tyrant? Sinatra would @ anyone who said anything bad about him with mafia threats.
Ava Gardner was a huge movie star whose downfall was men and alcohol. She died broke in 1988 and in her last effort to make money, hired someone to write about her love life. Unfortunately, the writer died, but the tapes he used to write the book (presumably, tapes of him interviewing Ms. Gardner) have been found (wow, this never happens) and the book, Ava Gardner: The Secret Conversations is finally done.
Her first husband was Mickey Rooney who she revealed had the nickname Mickey Hard-On. She quotes Rooney as saying, “I wanted to f-ck you the moment I saw you.” Gardner was an 18-year-old virgin at the time, and told Evans, “I was shocked. He’d screw anything that moved.”
He even cheated on Ava – then one of the most glamorous women in Hollywood — within the first months of their marriage while she was in the hospital having her appendix out, RadarOnline noted.
An affair with billionaire aviator movie mogul Howard Hughes followed.
Ava then married and divorced band leader Artie Shaw who she called a “bully” and then simultaneously dated Frank Sinatra and Robert Mitchum, both of whom were married at the time.
She said she was “crazy about” Mitchum but when she told him she was also seeing the Chairman of the Board, he told her, “Get into a fight with him, and he won’t stop until one of you is dead.” Not wanting Sinatra to think that he was competition, Mitchum stepped out of the way. Sinatra left his wife and he and Gardner wed. They had one of the most tumultuous marriages in Hollywood history, and divorced in 1957. It was her last marriage.
Numerous affairs followed including a brutal one with George C. Scott. While co-starring in 1966?s The Bible: In The Beginning, Scott beat her up so badly, Gardner had to be hospitalized.
And because of the times, George C. Scott avoided becoming Chris Brown. But people were much more cavalier about hitting women back then:
Ava’s co-stars in 55 Days in Peking, Charlton Heston and David Niven would’ve LIKED to slug her but didn’t. Ava was habitually late and drunk on set causing delay after delay to the epic.
Fantastic. Check out the photos of these men Gardner bedded, plus the two who wanted to hit her. Oh, Hollywood!
I guess we’re supposed to applaud Brad Pitt for thinking Angelina Jolie is still sexy even after undergoing a double mastectomy (and possibly having her ovaries removed, as well), and indeed it’s wonderful that he’s so ~progressive~ and supportive and they’re still totally into humping on each other despite their busy schedules, their 8,000 kids and having been together for a while. That’s true love, y’all.
I sort of feel bad for Brad, in a sense. He’s been promoting World War Z and all anyone seems to want to ask him on the red carpet is about how Angelina is and how he feels about what she’s done, etc. Indeed, Angelina’s experience and her openness in sharing it is courageous and wonderful and I’m so glad it’s started a dialogue in the wider world. But also, she’s stopped talking about it and declined to give interviews, so what makes people think that Brad feels like giving soundbites on something his wife is done discussing?
Brad was nice enough to humour some journalists on the red carpet for World War Z‘s Los Angeles premiere last Thurdsay, where he said the following (via People):
“She’s getting ready for World Refugee Day” this Thursday, Pitt told reporters on the red carpet, while Jolie was in Los Angeles.
Asked to describe his feelings about Jolie after she publicly announced her decision to undergo a preventative double mastectomy, Pitt replied: “She has always been the brave, bold individual that I fell for – and sexy as ever.”
Well, that’s great – and I mean that. But now that’s enough. STOP ASKING THEM ABOUT THIS.
Amy Adams is great, I think – she’s cute (like, “as a button”), a great actress (yes, including Enchanted) and seems pretty down-to-earth in every interview I’ve seen her do. However, homegirl needs to hook herself up with some self-esteem because some of the quotes from her new feature in Allure are downright sad. Sure, no one wants to hear anyone – especially a celebrity – go on and on about how beautiful and wonderful they are, but Amy self-deprecation to the next level as she discussed the opportunity to be part of the new Superman film.
“I’ve wanted to be in a superhero movie, and this was my best chance — as some mere mortal. Let’s be real here. I don’t look that good in Lycra. I do all right, but I hadn’t anticipated that I was ever going to be cast as the girl in Lycra looking hot.”
“Perfect isn’t normal, nor is it interesting. Some of these actresses or public personas who are very public about their disciplined diets, more power to them. I just don’t see the point. I’m just not going to be one of those people photographed in a bikini where people are like, ‘OMG, look at Amy!’ I mean, it might be OMG, but not for the reasons I want.”
“I have no features without makeup. I am pale. I have blonde lashes. You could just paint my face — it’s like a blank canvas. It can be great for what I do.”
Girl, you definitely have features… because you’re a living being. I’m glad she realises that being perfect isn’t realistic, but she seems almost sad about that. I’m also glad that she doesn’t do stupid ass diets and starve herself on a daily basis and all that shit (hopefully), but like… IDK. I’d be thrilled if I looked like Amy Adams – she’s lovely! Also, who the hell cares what you look like in a bikini? Presumably you’d be at the beach having fun, so that should be sorta the whole point. I know it’s different when you’re a celeb and paparazzi are around every corner and all that, I just wish we could all chill the hell out and be happy with ourselves. Maybe she actually is, and I hope that’s the case, she just seemed to be picking on herself quite a lot.
