Ashlee Simpson never recovered from the lip-synching on "Saturday Night Live." And then there's Hilary Duff, who ran off with some pierced, tattooed punk-rocker who gave her music a makeover, then dumped her and got Nicole Richie pregnant.
Vanessa Anne Hudgens
John Jeffrey Martin and Arielle Jacobs play Troy and Gabriella with grace and expertise. Martin looks nothing like Zac Efron, Troy in the movie versions; he's a bit more macho. Reilly said it took just about two songs for her to forget about Zac.
Jacobs had the dark hair and perky cuteness that the movie's Vanessa Anne Hudgens has, but she was no clone of the movie Gabriella she held her own. The plot's thin, the characters shallow, the moral be who you want to be way too obvious.
Angelina Jolie has revealed that her 'rainbow family' nearly didn't happen because she feared that she wouldn't make a good parent. She admits that it wasn't until she held adopted Cambodian son Maddox in 2002 that she realised she was up to the challenge of motherhood.
Her role in "Atonement" earned Saoirse Ronan a Golden Globe nomination, but she hasn't read the Ian McEwan novel the movie is based on. Ronan is only 13, and the book deals with sexual themes. "Atonement" is Ronan's third film, but the Irish actress is already getting attention for her role as the young Briony Tallis. In 2008, she is to appear with Bill Murray in the action-fantasy "City of Ember" and star as a con artist in "Death Defying Acts" alongside Catherine Zeta-Jones. She also has the lead role in Peter Jackson film version of "The Lovely Bones" - another book she hasn't read because of its mature content.

Pamela Anderson and Rick Salomon couldn't make their bizarre short marriage work, so Pammy served her fairly new hubby with divorce papers before the year ended, Us Weekly reports. The former "Baywatch" babe had divorce papers personally served to Salomon - most famous for his Paris Hilton sex tape "One Night in Paris" - on Dec. 28, just two weeks after she rescinded her intial request for divorce.
As faithful as the sunrise, Jessica Alba is an inspiration to pregnant women everywhere. Her determination to staying fit throughout her term just keeps getting more impressive. The "Good Luck Chuck" babe was spotted yesterday as she exited Emerson Hall Fitness in Los Angeles, California. Looks like the paps have a new roosting post!

The Cook County sheriff and state's attorney's offices reviewed the case of Anu Solanki, 24, and decided those charges are not appropriate, officials said.
We're more interested in the running nudity themes of Ali Larter and Rashida Jones. The Heroes actress would share her nekkidness with the dolphins and "then drink champagne till dawn." But most people would probably wanna end their days with Rashida: "I'd run naked across the Brooklyn Bridgedo something nakedeat an entire cake, spread it all over me naked."
The film features Lynch's usual coterie of dyspeptic characters, with favourite old faces such as Harry Dean Stanton and Dern's mother Diane Ladd, and it is great to see a few performers who don't get the work they deserve, such as Julia Ormond and Mary Steenburgen. Cameron Daddo even gets a brief scene his finest work since Models Inc.

Jeanne Carmen photoa
The fantasies and lies of Jeanne Carmen are an insult and an outrage to the memory of Marilyn Monroe. It should be obvious to anyone that Jeanne was never in the same room with Marilyn, never spoke to her, never set foot in her home.

Ellen Page plays a quirky teenager in Jason Reitman's Juno but she does so in a way I've rarely witnessed before. She's not rebelling from medication like Natalie Portman in Garden State, nor is she just a normal, shy girl who is externally quirky like Tina Majorino in Napoleon Dynamite. Her peculiarities aren't her definition like Ally Sheedy in The Breakfast Club, and she's not flippantly cute and brazenly poetic like Zooey Deschanel in Paul Gordon Green's All the Real Girls. Page's Juno MacGuff certainly has hints of all these characters, but what we witness of her comes from somewhere far off-screen. Remarkably, the world we're watching doesn't revolve around her.
