Remember back in 2007 when Sean Penn and wife Robin Wright Penn announced they were divorcing, supposedly because of Sean’s wandering eye? Well they worked out their issues at the time, because a month later, they called off the divorce. Fast forward two years to this year’s Oscar’s, where Sean Penn won best actor for “Milk.” The couple showed up looking happy and in love, but then again, they are both phenomenal actors. So it’s no surprise that the couple is officially calling it quits again, especially after he neglected to thank Robin in his acceptance speech, which is apparently a tell-tale sign of trouble.
Sarah Jessica Parker just confirmed a “Sex and the City: The Movie” sequel due out in May, 2010, but what she is expecting in 2009 is a much bigger surprise. SJP,44, and husband Matthew Broderick announced Tuesday that they are expecting twin girls this summer. If you’ve seen pictures of SJP lately, you would see that she looks more in need of a sandwich instead of looking like she’s carrying twins. That’s because the twins will be delivered through a surrogate pregnancy. Sources claim the couple has been trying unsuccessfully on their own for months, and when an alternative option presented itself, they couldn’t pass it up. The couple has a son, James, 6, who is probably thrilled that he’s no longer sole heir to his mother’s clothing and shoe collection. The acting duo, who have been dogging break-up rumors for months, have now squashed them for good (or at least for a couple of years).
Speaking of sequels, Michael Douglas and Oliver Stone are teaming up again for “Wall Street 2.” The 1987 hit won Michael Douglas an Oscar for best actor, and the sequel will probably be just as successful considering the state of our economy and the demise of Wall Street. The plot is remaining under wraps, but it will probably mimic the symbol of Wall Street greed and corruption in the first one. No word on a release date yet, but it will begin shooting this summer, and hopefully they can get Charlie Sheen back on board.
It’s the empire that won’t stop expanding. David and Posh Beckham have already forced their scents, dresses, jeans and other overpriced brand items upon us, so what’s one more line? This time, David Beckham has control of the wheel with his exclusive men’s line for Adidas. He is designing a fall-winter line for Adidas Originals by Originals (an extension of the brand that I’ve never heard of). But don’t expect to buy wearable athletic clothes. Instead, it’s more fitting for a fancy golf club dinner since the fabrics include cashmere, leather and silk. And although he is designing the line, don’t expect to see him in the ads. Apparently his posing days are over.
It’s the rumor that won’t subside: Jennifer Aniston is having a baby. But this rumor comes with a twist. Her unfortunate luck with men is clear, which would explain why she is trying to adopt and raise a child on her own (perhaps single-mom/friend Sheryl Crowe was her inspiration?). Supposedly, Jen is in the process of filling out paperwork with a California agency in hopes of adopting an American baby she can call her own.
