McGillis ‘Comes Out As A Lesbian’

Nothing wrong with this at all, must be hard for her to constantly have rumours and stuff going round about her.

Top Gun star Kelly McGillis has turned her back on men for good – reportedly confirming persistent rumours she is gay.

The actress been subjected to gossip about her sexuality throughout her career but she repeatedly denied speculation she was a lesbian.

But now McGillis has apparently confirmed she’s shunning men in favour of a female lover.

According to Radar Online, she says, “I’m done with the man thing. I did that, I need to move on in life. That’s another part of being true to yourself… that’s been a challenge for me personally.

“I think that (accepting my homosexuality) was an ongoing process from the time I was about 12. I had a lot of things happened that convinced me that God was punishing me for being gay. That was a hard process.”

McGillis has been wed twice and has two daughters from her marriage to Fred Tillman. The couple divorced in 2002.

News: Douglas’ Techno-savvy Father Shows Him Up

Awww how cute is this !!!?!?!?! Kirk hahaha love it.

Hollywood star Michael Douglas is ashamed he’s such a technophobe – because his 92-year-old father Kirk has his own blog.

Douglas is proud of the Spartacus star’s status as “the oldest blogger on MySpace” – but admits he doesn’t even know how to use email.

The 64-year-old says, “He (Kirk) prides himself on his spot on MySpace; he’s 92 years old and he’s got a blog on MySpace. He’s got 4,000 followers. I wouldn’t even know how (to read his blog).

“About three years ago I had an email address, the email would go to my office and my secretary would fax me the email!”

Parker’s Fears Over Twins

Awwww I am sure Sarah and Matthew will be able to manage.

Sarah Jessica Parker is nervous about the impending arrival of her new baby twins – because it will be much harder to juggle her work schedule with life as a mother of three.

The former Sex and the City star and her husband Matthew Broderick announced on Tuesday they are set to become parents to surrogate twin daughters.

The little girls, who are due this summer, will be sisters for their six-year-old son James Wilkie.

Parker fears she will struggle to balance her acting roles with her homelife after the babies arrive as it is already difficult enough to find time for her family.

She tells the New York Daily News, “It’s been a complicated past few weeks. My main concern is that my husband and son have enough time. I’ve felt very conflicted over the last few weeks. Hopefully, our son is feeling loved and taken care of. I can’t really complain because it’s my choice to work, but that doesn’t mean I don’t spend a better part of the day worrying about whether my family is getting enough (time) from me.”

But Parker insists her worries are commonplace for any mum-to-be, adding, “Any complications or any anxiety I feel is normal. Any mother who wants to continue to work and have a career outside the home goes through this, so I feel very much a part of the sisterhood.”

Bale Hopes Director Nolan Accepts Third Batman Movie

I really hope Nolan signs up for the third movie as well.

Christian Bale is praying The Dark Knight director Christopher Nolan signs up for a third Batman film – because nobody will be able to better the moviemaker’s previous efforts.

Bale was directed by Nolan in 2005’s Batman Begins and reprised his role as the caped crusader for last year’s box office smash, which grossed more than $1 billion (£69 million) worldwide.

The actor is contractually obliged to star in a third film – but he’s worried about the future of the franchise if Nolan refuses to take charge.

He tells Total Film magazine, “It’s got to be the right story. You can’t make something like The Dark Knight and then come out with something disappointing.

“The fact is, I have to (make a third movie). I’ve signed up! Chris doesn’t. So I’m in a bit of a fix if he says he doesn’t want to!”

News: Pattinson’s Rock Star Dreams

I bet he is so glad that he stuck with the acting now !!!

Robert Pattinson nearly gave up on his acting ambitions before landing the lead as a vampire in Twilight – because he couldn’t snag the roles he dreamed of playing.

Pattinson first shot to fame playing wizard Cedric Diggory in 2005’s Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire – but he began to plot a career as a musician when he failed to secure any more inspiring movie work.

And it wasn’t until he landed the part of an awkward musician in filmmaker Oliver Irving‘s independent movie How To Be that his love for acting was reignited.

Irving tells People.com, “He was thinking about giving up acting and maybe doing music solely when this role (in How To Be) came along. He wanted to play the roles he wasn’t getting… He was looking for something more challenging.”

And the director made sure to push Pattinson during filming, asking him to play the guitar and harmonica while disguising his good looks with a strange haircut and ill-fitting clothing.

Irving adds: “I said, ‘You’re banned from cutting your hair between now and the shoot.’ We had to give him the most awkward haircut we possibly could, and we cut his trouser length a little bit too high. Things like that played down his apparent good looks.”

And Irving insists Pattinson rose to the challenge, often showing off musical skills too advanced for his character: “He downplayed how good he was. A lot of the time he would turn out to have a really good (instrument) technique and we told him he needed to play it more simply.”

Winslet Pities Young Actresses

Yeah it definatly is more intense now. I am pleased for Kate too 🙂

Kate Winslet is relieved she found fame in the 1990s – because young actresses today face more intense media attention than she ever did.

The British beauty shot to international stardom alongside Leonardo DiCaprio in 1997’s Titanic, and faced a barrage of press comments about her curvy figure at the time.

Winslet “bounced back” from the criticisms and learned to love her figure – but admits she found the unwanted attention “f**king hard”.

And the 33 year old pities those just starting out in Hollywood – because she’s convinced they face even more judgement about their looks and their personal lives.

She tells Marie Claire magazine, “It’s really, really tough. It’s like, ‘She’s fat, she’s thin, she’s married, she’s divorced.’ I had all that and bouncing back is f**king hard.

“I’m really, really happy I’m not a younger actor or actress working now because they have to run before they can walk.”

Winslet Blasts ‘Middle Class’ Tag

Awww I love Kate, and I’m glad that she has put the record straight. She is such a lovely woman, love her !!!

Kate Winslet has hit out at critics who assume she had a privileged childhood – insisting her family was so poor she grew up wearing second-hand shoes.

The Titanic star is adamant her famously well-spoken accent is not an indication of a luxurious upbringing.

And she is insists her parents struggled to make ends meet – taking her on cheap vacations in the south-west of England and giving her 15 cents (10p) a week pocket money.

She tells Britain’s Marie Claire magazine, “People think I’m lying… My dad was very much a struggling actor and spent more of his life as a postman, as a member of a Tarmac firm, as a van driver. He’d sell Christmas trees. Anything. That was my dad.

“We had these dreadful second-hand cars that would always die a death, or we’d go on holiday to Cornwall, come back and it would have been nicked (stolen). It’s like a Joe Orton farce, my family. Honestly, it was hand-me-down shoes and 10p pocket money on a Saturday that didn’t go up until I was 11.”

Penn Files For Separation From Wife

Awwww I thought that they had sorted it out and were going to give it another go after there appearance together at the Oscars.

Sean Penn has filed for legal separation from his wife of 13 years, Robin Wright Penn.

News of the split comes just two days after the couple’s 13th wedding anniversary, and just months after they reunited. Penn originally filed for divorce back in 2007.

The actor first fuelled rumours of a second split when he failed to mention Wright Penn during his Best Actor acceptance speech at the Academy Awards in February.

Then last month, he was rumoured to be romancing actress Natalie Portman.

Those reports were denied by sources close to Penn, but on Friday he filed court documents to make their separation official, according to ExtraTV.com.

The couple share 18-year-old daughter, Dylan, and 15-year-old son Hopper. They sought joint custody of their kids during their 2007 divorce proceedings.

News: Douglas Recovering From Knee Surgery

Awww poor Michael, hope he recovers quickly.

Veteran actor Michael Douglas is recovering from surgery after having his knee replaced.

The Basic Instinct star, 64, found himself limping around on the set of his forthcoming film Solitary Man and was instructed by doctors to go under the knife to remedy the problem.

He says, “I had my knee replaced, I have an artificial knee. A little bit of Pvc, plastic pipes with titanium rods. It’s four weeks old.

“I had a skiing accident years and years ago and it just wore down. It finally got to a point where I had a limp and I had to do it. So it’s four weeks old. I’ve got another couple of months (of recovery) but I’ll be fine.”

Douglas is already back on his feet and he credits his wife Catherine Zeta-Jones with helping to make his recovery all the more comfortable.

He adds, “She turned out to be fantastic, it’s like a test to see how good your wife is, but she’s been fantastic. But I couldn’t get her into the nurse’s outfit!”

But Douglas’ father, legendary actor Kirk Douglas, wasn’t so kind and poked fun at his injury: “After this fairly serious operation, I go see him and he said, ‘How you doing?’ and I said, ‘Pretty good dad’, and he goes, ‘You know, when I had my double knee replacement, I was 88!'”
