Showbiz Roundup: Shhh, did you hear?

Kim’s Lifelong Workout

It is always refreshing when you realise that an actress with a fabulous figure has to try just as hard as you and me to keep the weight off. Kim Cattrall, 54, made millions of women jealous when she flaunted her gorgeous figure in the Sex And The City series and movies but the actress has admitted that she struggles to maintain her figure. ‘I’ve been dieting my whole life because I have a tremendous appetite,’ she reveals. ‘This generation of women that I’m in, we have been brought up with Jane Fonda workout tapes and fresh air is good for you and exercise every day and drink eight cups of water…. and it’s paid off at this time of my life,’ she said. Kim, who was recently nominated for a Razzie nomination for her role in the Sex And The City movie, went on to say: ‘it gets harder because parts of my body don’t want to be on a diet, but at the same time it gets me up in the morning to work out.’ We find it hard enough to just get up and go to work!

Shameless Actors Desperate Cover-Up

American actress Emmy Rossum is having to deal with a few sticky situations filming the US version of Brit working class drama Shameless. Emmy, 24, plays Frank Gallagher’s daughter Fiona who has quite a few risque nude scenes with her deadbeat boyfriend Steve, played by Justin Chatwin, 28, and has had to be creative to cover up. ‘I have this thing that I’ve invented with wardrobe and makeup that I like to call the “vag pad,”‘ Emmy said . ‘It’s a strip of rubbery stuff that gets adhered to me.’ And she is not the only one protecting her modesty. Justin has revealed that he too is trying to cover up. ‘When we were shooting the pilot, I remember coming out wearing nothing but a sock on my pecker.’ Um too much information thanks guys!

Britney’s babysitter caught partying with Charlie

Charlie Sheen’s ex-wife Denise Richards has been busy trying to shield their two daughters, Lola, seven and Sam, six, from the media frenzy that has surround their father’s latest melt-down and trip to rehab. She tweeted: ‘I love how certain media outlets say my ‘friends’ are speaking to the press.. all B.S. Nothing has been discussed this is a private matter’. While his twin sons Max and Bob are safely with their mother Brooke Mueller, who is currently in the process of divorcing Sheen. But Britney Spears’ boys Sean Preston and Jayden James may not have been so lucky. It seems that porn star Kacey Jordan, who was with Charlie when he went on the drug and drink bender that resulted in him being carted off to hospital, use to babysit the boys after Britney split from their dad Kevin Federline. ‘I watched the kids when Kevin was dealing with the divorce,’ Jordan told gossip website TMZ. ‘He was busy with going to so many meetings with lawyers… They were great.’ Whatever happened to the girl next door sitting the kids – or maybe she is the girl next door in Hollywood!

Cheryl’s Ex Appeal

It seems that Cheryl Cole is not as over her ex-husband footballer Ashley Cole as she has made out. The Chelsea star had been keen to get his ex-wife back and has been trying to get her to meet up with him for months – and it seems that he has finally got that to happen. It was reported in the tabloids yesterday that the couple had secretly met up in their former marital home after Cheryl had spoken tenderly of Ashley when she appeared on Piers Morgan’s Life Stories. Since the meeting, Ashley is keen to get Cheryl to go on further dates with him and has been bombarding her with calls and texts. ‘This is the talk of the training ground,’a source close to the footballer told the News Of The World. ‘He called her and she told him she was going [to the National TV Awards] and he wanted tickets. He said they’d be discreet and make sure they weren’t pictured together but it was obvious from his reaction she was unsure.’ However the singer in understandably wary. They are an ex for a reason Cheryl!

The Tourist Turns Native

Johnny Depp has expanded his property portfolio after snapping up a palazzo in Venice for £8.75 million. The gorgeous actor fell in love with the place while he was in the city filming The Tourist with Angelina Jolie last year. The 17th century Palazzo Dona Sangiantoffetti overlooks the Grand Canal and while it needs extensive renovations, it is said to contain  high decorated ceilings, a roof platform and ornate columns. The palazzo will add to the portfolio of homes that Depp shares with his partner Vanessa Paradis and kids Lily-Rose, 11, and Jack, 8, which include their main home in the South of France, and holiday homes in the Bahamas, Somerset, West Hollywood and Hawaii. ‘My experience of Venice really happened between 10pm and 2am when the streets closed.’ the 47-year-old actor revealed, ‘and I was able to walk around and experience the poetry of Venice, the ghosts of Venice, all those wonderful dark alleys. For an actor being able to film within the confines of that magical city certainly helps… The city’s magic shone through completely.’
