Showbiz Roundup: Shhh, did you hear?

PETA ‘fur’ociously reprimand Brooke Shields

Brooke Shields, 45, has incurred the wrath of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) after she ‘fulfilled her childhood dream’ to design a mink coat. The actress designed the jacket for a Danish fur company to show that fur can look great on younger women

“Both my generation and the younger generation can wear fur,” she enthused. “I will wear the fur garment when I follow my children to school, when I drink coffee and when I sleep,” she said.

PETA angrily hit out at the Furry Vengeance actress on their website with a scathing reply of what they dreamed as little girls.

“When I was a little girl, I dreamed about growing up to be a rock star. Or maybe a veterinarian. Or a roller derby queen. I didn’t dream about anally electrocuting animals on fur farms, but apparently Brooke Shields did…We understand that when some actors’ careers begin to fade, they’ll do just about anything to stay in the limelight, including appearing in eyelash-growing commercials and starring in short-lived TV shows. But Brooke, did you really want the world to remember you as a ‘fur pimp’ who stares agog at rows of animal skins?”

Harsh but to the point!

Kylie sets the record straight on twitter

Pop princess Kylie Minogue has taken to twitter to squash rumours that she has split up with her beau of two years, Spanish model Andreas Velencoso Segura.

“Wowza…love life rumors have gone mad!!!! Please pay no attention peeps. My birthday was magical with AV and friends!!” she said via her Twitter account.

The actress, who turned 42 last Friday, was forced to use the social networking site after rumours of massive rows and Andres storming out hit the headlines.

However cougar Kylie, who is ten years older than Andreas, joked at her album launch last week: “He’s much taller than me. Luckily that doesn’t matter when we are lying down.”

So maybe these ‘sources’ are just jealous. We know we are!

Céline Dion expecting double trouble

After years of trying to get pregnant Céline Dion has confirmed that she is pregnant with twins. The Canadian singing sensation had six cycles of IVF treatment before this successful round.

“I never gave up. But I can tell you that it was physically and emotionally exhausting,” she told Canadian newspaper Le Journal de Montreal.

Celine, 42, was keen to have a brother or sister for nine-year-old son René-Charles and turned to acupuncture to ensure that her latest round of IVF was a success. The singer and husband/manager René were thrilled when they discovered that she was expecting twins.

“Celine was just hoping for a healthy pregnancy,” husband René said. “She was hoping for one baby and the news that we are having two is a double blessing.”

Even when she did discover that she was pregnant, she was found it hard to believe what the obstetrician was telling her.

“My doctors had to constantly reassure me. I [wanted] to see the babies,” she says. “Each week I had sonograms. I heard their heart beats.”

Cameron Diaz is a lover and a fighter!

We have long envied Cameron Diaz’s natural beauty and sporty good looks and now the model turned actress has revealed her secret for looking young. Unlike many in her profession it isn’t expensive treatments and creams, botox or surgery but rather something a bit saucy… a roll in the hay!

Cameron, 37, told British Vogue this month: ”The fountain of youth, let’s see, I guess it’s exercise, healthy diet, lots of water, lots of laughter, lots of sex, yes, sex, we need that as human beings,” she explained. “It’s healthy, it’s natural, it’s what we are here to do!”

And it is obviously standing her in good stead. While filming her latest movie Knight and Day with Tom Cruise, the actress pretended to punch Tom and caught him unawares knocking him for six. The mortified actress then profusely apologised to her co-star and handed back the sunglasses she had knocked from his head. However as the stunt was caught on camera many people believe that it was deliberately planned to promote the film. Either was we like to see a woman portrayed as strong and feminine.

Bradley Cooper mans up

The A-Team actor Bradley Cooper has revealed that he wasn’t so lucky with the women as a youngster as people thought he was a girl! The actor told Details magazine: “I was in a coffee shop once and the waitress was like, ‘What do you want, Miss?’ I was 10 or 11– the worst age to have that happen. I had a jean jacket on and a Metallica pin. I thought I was really cool.”

Luckily he has been a little more successful since then. Brad, 35, had a brief marriage to Samantha Who? actress Jennifer Esposito and is currently shacked up with Bridget Jones‘  Renée Zellweger. While he has also been linked to Friends star Jennifer Aniston, he denied this in the interview saying: “I’m reading about me taking Jennifer Aniston to my Bel Air mansion and having a candlelit dinner, and I was like, ‘That’s crazy. Never happened.” The next time he saw Aniston, who is a friend, he joked: “Hey, we should hang out, the other dates that we never had went so well.”
