Back to Jack’s hair. Where did it go? Why? The answer is is that Jack is going to be playing a cancer patient along with Morgan Freeman in the film “Bucket List.” It is supposedly a “buddy flick” about terminally ill men. That sounds like the feel good movie of the year. At least the mystery was solved. It is good to know that he wasn’t mocking Britney Spears…part of me thought it was a really really bad joke. Kudos to Ellen not connecting the two baldies because though it would have awarded the Kodak Theatre a bit of a chuckle, it wouldn’t have been good for all of Hollywood’s A-List to be making fun of Brit Brit.

Ehhhhnyway, her first husband, Jason Alexander (the twit from Louisiana, not the twit from Seinfeld) is such a darling that he’s opted to spill his romantic guts to some paper in London. He recounts an episode during which Brit almost OD’d on E (the drug, guys, not the television network, although I suppose both are equally probable):
“I took her into the bathroom and threw her in the shower. She was unconscious. She tripped and fell. I was trying to hold her up and speak to her. She wasn’t moving. I remember looking down at her all crumpled in the tub with the water coming down. She looked so white and lifeless. I thought she was dead. I thought, ‘This bitch is going to f–king die right here in front of me.’”
I wonder if this was before or after he married her. Anyway, sweet of him to care so much.

I can tell you that by the time I’m 80 not only will I not care about women; I’ll be in full crotchety mode (while pursuing competitive shuffleboard). Right now women are lovely. At 80, egh, I’m good.
Nice work Hugh, now don’t you go dying on us.

Ok Lars is going to kill me for this but today’s song is “Over It” by Katherine McPhee. Her album didn’t really blow up the charts but I’m seriously digging this song. The video kind of looks like she is making her own solo sex tape but this song is too darn catchy. She really does have a great voice and if you need a good pop song today, give it a second look.
Also, since I am having a bouncy pop music moment, since our loyal reader Henry suggested I post this lovely tune here is the best song that Gwen Stefani has put out in a long time. I am really excited that she is finally recording another album with No Doubt since some of her solo stuff was getting a bit weird. If you haven’t downloaded “Sweet Escape” yet, please do. It is a must for a workout play list…just be careful that you don’t sing it on the treadmill. Some guy did that yesterday at my gym and it is really embarrassing.

Oscar winner Helen Mirren has been invited by her magesty, Queen Elizabeth, for a royal tea later this month. Many have speculated that the Queen was a bit miffed by a movie based on her experiences in the wake of Princess Diana’s death but she has come out saying that she supported Mirren’s Oscar campaign.
Evidently the Queen is a big fan of Mirren’s work and has her own DVD’s of her in the “Prime Suspect” miniseries and “Calendar Girls.” She hasn’t seen “The Queen” because it was be too upsetting considering the subject matter.
â€œShe thinks that Helen Mirren is one of the best actresses of a generation. There is no way Her Majesty would sit down and watch a film about the days after the death of Princess Diana. The memories and the subject matter are far too close to the bone. But equally the Queen still wants someone who is one of her favourite actresses to get the credit she deserves.â€
Helen had a love fest for the Queen last night during her acceptance speech and dedicated her award to her. I’m guessing that the Queen will be quite pleased. Reserved, quiet, sensible but quite pleased.

Everyone in Hollywood smokes weed. Hurry up and call your local D.A.R.E. rep. [Cele|bitchy]
Britney, on the other hand, likes coke and E, and has for a very long time, as everyone and their brother is rushing to report now. I’ve been hearing Britney Spears cocaine stories from reputable sources for years now, but somehow none of this stuff managed to make it into the press until the girl checked into rehab. [Celebrity Smack]
There are new pics of Britney Spears in rehab on the Internet. I’m not going to link to them, because I think it’s real freakin’ ballsy of these photo agencies to publish pictures of her with her fellow rehabbers. Britney signed over her right to anonymity a long time ago, but that’s not true of everyone at Promises. But if you poke around a little, you’ll run into them.
Tyra Banks cops a Kat Mc-Feel. Wow. Sometimes I feel crushed under the weight of my own comedic genius. [Ninja Dude]
