Ethan Hawke Was Super Jealous of Uma Thurman

Ethan Hawke Talks About Why Hollywood Marriages Fail

In an upcoming interview with AMC’s Shootout, Ethan Hawke tells us what we already knew: celebrity marriages fail when one person becomes way more successful than the other.

“It’s unfair when one person’s career is taking off and the other is really suffering,” he says. “What happens — it’s not that they’re jealous of each other; it’s that the person you share your life with isn’t in the mood to support. You want to have a pity party for yourself, but they’re off to the Golden Globes and you don’t want to go because everyone is going to think you are jealous.”

Ethan Hawke, who will always be that “I am not acting like anything, I am calmly reading” guy from Reality Bites in my mind, married Uma Thurman in 1998. She filed for divorce in 2004, around the time her acting career was skyrocketing and Ethan was penning angsty novels.

But thank you, Ethan, for finally stepping up to the plate and actually saying that Hollywood egos get in the way of Hollywood marriages.

Nicole Richie Thinks She Can Control Me

From Page Six:

NICOLE Richie knows how rumors get started, so she’s nipping in the bud any chance of wicked whispers about her and boyfriend Joel Madden being on the outs. Wednesday night, Madden went to celebrate the first anniversary of the Village Pourhouse on Third Avenue, and all was well until a party promoter wanted to take a picture of him with a cute young woman. Our spy reports, “He said he couldn’t, as Nicole gave him strict orders not to take pictures with other celebrities or girls for rumor purposes.”

Oh, silly, silly Nicole. Clearly you don’t know me. If I want to say you and Joel are on the outs, I’ll do it whether or not I have a picture to prove it.

Truth be told, I think these two will be together at least until this kid’s two or so. They were spotted yesterday apartment-hunting in NYC.

Ohhh Shit, We’ve Got the Vanessa Minnillo Naked Pictures

So remember back when we had those pics of Vanessa and Nick in a hot tub that I had to pull because they threatened to sue me?

Even though OK magazine said they paid $400,000 for the shots to keep them private, some Spanish magazine called Toxic got the uncensored versions of the pics and ran them. They’re not the shots of the couple doing the nasty, but they’re some very naked pics of Vanessa, who doesn’t shave down there, if you know what I mean.

You can view them here and here.

Jessica Simpson is having a wonderful day today.

So You Think You Can Dance: The Finale

So even though the T has been a bit MIA on her SUTUCD recaps (due to the fact that she has been moving, hanging out with the lovely Beet and traveling the world), she is giving you a liveblogging of the finale show!

We are starting out seeing all of our amazing Top 20 and the judges from the whole season. They are gushing about the kids this year, which is true because this season was…in the words of Crazy Mary Murphy “riding in first class.”

Paula Abdul…our resident crazy from American Idol…is in the audience as well as an 18 year old that was supposed to join us this past season but oops…she had a baby.

We get a good highlight reel of all of the auditions and crazy bad/good dancer highlights. I am a bit weepy weepy seeing the montage of all of these talented young kids from the season. There were some amazing dances this year and seeing them all together is kind of beautiful.

As my mother says, “what in the world is she wearing tonight…what is the hell” and this is referring to Cat’s outfit tonight I realize that Cat is also wearing dead butterflies in her hair. I’m usually a fan of her outfits but this one tonight is about as ill-chosen as Paula Abdul’s Idol outfits.
