Showbiz Roundup: Shhh, did you hear?

Chris says being married to Gwyneth Is Like Winning The Lottery
Putting rumours of relationship troubles to rest, Coldplay’s Chris Martin has spoken for the first time about his marriage to actress Gwyneth Paltrow saying being married to the Oscar winner is  ‘like winning the lottery’. The notoriously private singer and musician, 34, was talking to Anthony Mason for CBS Sunday Profile when he was asked about his relationship. When the presenter asked Chris if it was true that his relationship with Gwyneth, 39, was his first serious relationship, he replied ‘That’s right. I’m in it.’ When Anthony said that it was pretty unusual that Chris hadn’t had any serious relationships and noticed that it was a big leap to then go out with Gwyneth, Chris  replied ‘It’s a big leap? What, from being a loser, to going out with an Oscar winner? It’s a giant leap. Let’s face it; it’s like winning the lottery, I was happy to make it,’ he said laughing. But he then clammed up about his private life saying ‘we still just try to keep that whole thing quiet.’

Third Time’s A Charm For Shannen Doherty
Former Charmed and Beverly Hills 90210 star Shannen Doherty has tied the knot for the third time to photographer Kurt Iswarienko. The troubled actress, 40, was married to Ashley Hamilton in 1993, a union that lasted for eight months and to Paris Hilton sex-tape partner Rick Saloman for just seven months in 2003 after which they had their marriage annulled. ‘Marriage to me is such a gigantic commitment that it’s not something I’d ever go into lightly anymore,’ she said. ‘I’ve learned my lesson.’ The black and white themed outdoor wedding took place in Malibu and was filmed as part of their new WEtv reality show Shannen Says, which premieres in 2012. Let’s hope the show is a fiery as the actress’s past has been and then it will be worth watching!

New Romance For J.Lo?
Jennifer Lopez has been spotted out and about with The Hangover actor Bradley Cooper. Fuelling speculation that the two are now dating the American Idol judge, 42, was seen trying to hide her face from photographers as Bradley, 36, drove with her in LA. This is not the first time the pair have been seen out together.  In September J.Lo and Bradley were spotted having a romantic dinner at at Per Se, one of New York’s most expensive restaurants, where the $275-per-person fixed price menu is popular. ‘After their date in New York, Bradley and Jennifer stayed in touch,’ a source close to Lopez told People magazine. ‘She does like his attention, and it makes her feel good that he seems so into her. She has a fun time with Bradley and he makes her laugh.’ Another source adds: ‘She likes him.’

Zachary Quinto Confirms The Rumours
Star Trek and Heroes star Zachary Quinto has confirmed that he is gay in an interview about the Broadway play he is in Angels In America. Talking about starring in the play, which is about an AIDs epidemic and won the Pulitzer Prize for playwright Tom Kushner, Zachary said  ‘as a gay man, it made me feel like there’s still so much work to be done. There’s still so many things that need to be looked at and addressed. The undercurrent of that fear and that, you know, insidiousness still is swarming. It’s still all around us.’ He also spoke about the issue of gay marriages and bullying in the US saying: ‘there’s such tremendous disparity right now. It’s like, you have the legalization of gay marriage in the state of New York and three months later you have Jamey Rodemeyer killing himself, yet another gay teenager bullied into taking his own life. And, you know, again, as a gay man, I look at that and say there’s a hopelessness that surrounds it. But as a human being, I look at it and say, “Why? Where is this disparity coming from and why can’t we as a culture, as a society, dig deeper to examine it?”‘ It’s great to see him standing up for who he is and for gay rights – anyone else brave enough?

Guess Who – Secret Gossip
[from CDAN] This long long time married couple is probably A list in our hearts, but in the business is a C for her and a B+ for him. You know, just for longevity, I would probably bump them up a notch. Anyway, the actor in this relationship has told his wife that he is getting older and is just not really interested in sex anymore and has trouble in the getting it up department so they have been celibate for quite some time. All of this however has not stopped him from having dirty sexy time with a str*pper he was introduced to by one of his more notorious, high profile philandering friends.
