Winona Ryder Opens Up About that Whole Shoplifting Thing


Winona spoke recently for the first time about her reaction to her December 2001 shoplifting arrest, making the valid point that, in December 2001, it’s not exactly what the nation needed to be focused on.

“I didn’t have this tremendous sense of guilt, because I hadn’t hurt anyone,” Ryder tells Vogue magazine for its August cover story. “Had I physically harmed someone or caused harm to a human being, I think it would have been an entirely different experience.”

Her personal reaction, she says, was “I never said a word. I didn’t release a statement. I didn’t do anything. I just waited for it to be over.”

Still, she says, “The attention was what was embarrassing.” She also expresses dismay that one day the news of her arrest topped stories on the supposed capture of Osama bin Laden.

She also kinda-sorta talks about her kinda-sorta drug problem.

“Two months prior to that, I broke my arm in two places, and the doctor, a sort of quack doctor, was giving me a lot of stuff and I was taking it at first to get through the pain. And then there was this weird point when you don’t know if you are in pain but you’re taking it.”

She said painkillers of the type she was on – such as Oxycodone, which should not be confused with OxyContin – left her in a state of “confusion,” but that her arrest “in a very weird way, was a blessing, because I couldn’t do that [painkillers] anymore.”

Holy Shit, It’s Frances Bean

I haven’t seen pictures of this girl since she was like 8, but she accompanied her mom to her show at the Roxy last night. Is it just me, or does she look just like Kurt? Wow.

Update: I was intrigued by this, so I went back and pulled a bunch more photos of her. I’ve posted them here as thumbnails. My God, this girl is the spitting image of Kurt Cobain. It’s almost chilling.

Update Update: Okay, okay. I know you guys don’t think this is Frances Bean. Read here for more info on this scandal.

A Day in the Life of Paris Hilton, Brought to You by Taco Bell

Paris Hilton at Taco Bell, Looking at the Menu, Pics, Pictures and Photos

Does Paris Hilton really need to walk into the Taco Bell? Don’t they all have a drive-thru? Does she really need to ponder solemnly over the menu? Honestly, Paris, save some of that solemn pondering for all that humanitarian work you totally forgot you said you were going to do.

No, Paris Hilton doesn’t need to make an entire photo op out of a trip to Taco Bell. But she did anyway. Probably because Taco Bell’s paying her to, and possibly just because she thinks it’s funny.

Regardless, I want a chalupa right now.

Lindsay Lohan and BFF/on-and-off lesbian lover Samantha Ronson are wasting no time in celebrating Lindsay’s release from rehab and SamRo’s new, even butcher, haircut. While World War III was kicking off over at Hyde, Lindsay and Samantha were both spotted at Les Deux (the photos are from last night). Lindsay later met up with friends at Mel’s Diner in WeHo. SamRo didn’t appear to make the trip.

CSI Star Lashes Out at TMZ Photog

Gary Dourdan from CSI Beats Up TMZ Photographer

Well, this is one way to get your name in the papers.

CSI star Gary Dourdan went apeshit on a TMZ photographer outside Hyde, beating him violently after mistaking him for someone else. You can check out video of the event here. According to TMZ:

Clad in leather biker gear, Dourdan violently grabbed our photog outside Hyde, who the actor had mistaken for another guy, and slammed him to the pavement several times, sending his head bouncing into concrete over and over again — all while his camera continued to roll.

The chaos began after Dourdan pulled up to the club on his Ducati motorcycle, and shouted at the photog to “get that f**king camera out of my face!” The photog obliged, pointing the camera to the ground — but Dourdan’s rage continued to grow, and the cameraman kept the record button on just in case something happened. Moments later, something happened.

As Dourdan launched his attack, other paparazzi can be heard screaming at Gary, desperately trying to make him stop. Moments after the assault, Dourdan threatened our photog again, saying, “I know all the cops around here, they’re my friends.”

Not very cool, Mr. Dourdan. If you don’t want photogs in your face, don’t fucking go to Hyde.

Bunny Andre?


Katie Price (aka Jordan) and Peter Andre have finally named their new baby girl….Bunny.

I am all for crazy celebrity names but are you supposed to give a baby a porn star name? Can you imagine “paging Dr. Bunny Andre?” More like “Bunny Andre XXX Hot and Wild.” See my point?

No matter what this crazy couple does however, I just love them dearly. I actually bought an OK Magazine in transit this week for about $12 dollars US. I hate the pound.

Hopefully cute pics of Bunny Andre coming soon. Who can’t wait until Jordan gets her a bright blond baby wig.
