- Jessica Alba, on the notion of being a sex symbol, to Parade magazine

"I always put one of them in charge. If they bring a little group of guys over to the house to have a pool party or whatever, I just say, 'Dude... you're in charge. If anything happens to one of my daughters, I'm coming to you first, and then I'm going to kill all your friends right in front of you, and you'll be last.'"
- Bruce Willis, pictured with daughter Rumer Willis, on his method for keeping Rumer and her sisters safe from teenage boys

- Police drummer Stewart Copeland, rating his bandmate's performance during a reunion concert in Vancouver, on his Web site

- Marcia Cross on the joys of motherhood

"They've asked me a hundred times, 'Are you married?' How many times can you say you're not married? You get asked all these personal questions and a lot of times I've just got to put some humor in it to deal with it."
- Enrique Iglesias, on why he told the press that he was now divorced from Anna Kournikova, though the still-together couple has never married

"I wasn't afraid of dying as much as I was really afraid of getting my hair cut. It might sound funny, but it's true."
â€" Marilyn Manson, on his childhood fears

She isn't nude (at the moment), she isn't dating Blake Lewis (as far as we can tell), but Antonella Barba is back in the headlines. For one day at least.

"I just wanted to stay out of the public eye a bit," Barba told The Washington Post in an interview published in the newspaper's June 3 edition.

For those with short memories, of course, Antonella was very much in the public eye - and not wearing much as she chilled there - during her stint on American Idol. Controversial naked, oral sex photos of the singer cropped up on the Web.

The Post reported the Catholic University student plans to take summer classes in an effort to make-up the work she missed while competing on Idol's sixth season, with the goal being to graduate from the Washington, D.C.-area school with her friends next spring.

"If I want to do music, I'll have to pursue it. Wouldn't it be great if I could do [both school and music]?" Barba said, letting down men everywhere that hoped she'd accept an offer to pose in Playboy as opposed to either of the aforementioned options.

Once Barba was eliminated from Idol, she openly wondered how the photos were released in the first place. Good friend, Amanda Coluccio, has denied playing any role in the incident.

In the end, most people forgot about Antonella as Lewis, Melinda Doolittle and Jordin Sparks battled for the Idol crown. Barba said it's a chapter in her life that's already been written and she can only learn from the lessons it taught her... despite not knowing what they are yet.

"I don't regret going on American Idol," the beauty said. "I'm thankful for the opportunities... Even if you've made right or wrong decisions, you can't regret them, because you've learned from them. Everything happens for a reason. I'd like to know what it is, though."

Some things may remain a mystery, though. Like why Lindsay Lohan is holding a knife to the throat of Vanessa Minnillo.

Sorry, fellas no Angelina Jolie nude photos here.

But if The Hollywood Gossip did possess these rare commodities, apparently we could get the actress to open up.

"I don't know how he does it, but ... I talk a lot in the bath," Jolie tells Marie Claire magazine for its July issue, in reference to how boyfriend Brad Pitt gets her to chat. "It's easier to talk when you're naked ... Get naked with me, and I'll talk!"

Is that an invitation, Angelina? We know Joslyn Noel Morse would accept it, but so would we.

Jolie, who had been a single mother to her son Maddox before meeting Pitt, also says she's so grateful for the actor's presence in the lives of her kids.

"I'm so happy for my children â€" especially Mad," Jolie tells the magazine, which hits newsstands June 12. "I didn't know if he was ever going to have a dad. So when I watch them having real strong father-son time, or even when Mad tells me, 'This is a boy thing, Mom' â€" it's just really beautiful to see."

Of course, Maddox, is just one of many that comprise the Brangelina brood. There's also Jolie Zahara, 2, and Shiloh, 1, and Pax Thien, 3, who was legally given the last name Jolie-Pitt last week.

As for her own relationship with Pitt, Jolie says that their connection has grown over time â€" despite many changes in their family life.

"I think we both went on a lot of faith â€" we really did," she says. "Our family has grown very quickly, and we have a lot of responsibility together, and we acknowledge that we are lucky we turned out be for each other everything we'd hoped. We could have been very wrong, but every challenge we hit has brought us closer. It has been that kind of relationship."

At times like this, you can only hope Jennifer Aniston isn't reading.

Jolie, who recently said she plans to take a year off work, also tells the magazine that her career helps her in her personal life, too.

"My work has always been a great way for me to deal with things in my life," she says â€" especially when it came to her new movie A Mighty Heart, in which she plays the real-life Mariane Pearl, widow of slain Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl.

"Focusing on that story on a daily basis, you certainly don't worry about your life," she says in excerpts provided by the magazine. "I mean, there isn't a better film to make you hyperaware that you should complain about nothing."

We hope Victoria Beckham is keeping that in mind the next time she whines about celebrity gossip sites.

Jessica Biel may be Justin Timberlake's lady in love.

But in the music world, he's linking up with a new cutie - Esmee Denters, who he says "is the real deal" and "cannot wait for the world to hear her."

Do you doubt that the award-winning pop and R&B artist has an ear for talent? Our celebrity gossip staff writers sure as heck don't.

Which is why we're pleased to report that the young online sensation has become the first artist signed to Justin's new label, Tennman Records.

Yes, an Internet phenomenon that doesn't involve sex tapes. Amazing, we know.

"In completely unpredicted news to all YouTubers and bloggers, we are proud to announce Esmee Denters has signed to Tennman Records and she will be joining me on tour this summer," Justin said via a press release.

"Esmee is the real deal and I cannot wait for the world to hear her, but all of her fans on YouTube should not worry ... we will keep you in the loop every step of the way," said Timberlake, Chairman/CEO of the label.

Esmee Denters was equally ecstatic:

"Words can't describe how amazing it is. I am so excited! It is something I have always dreamed of. I have to thank YouTube and its viewers for giving me the opportunity to show the world my voice. I also have to thank Justin Timberlake, one of the biggest artists in the world, for believing in me and making my dreams come true," Esmee said.

Esmee Denters is one of the most notable singers-songwriters to gain attention strictly as an Internet performer. Born in the Netherlands, she grew up with the intent of becoming a social worker. But in 2006, using a webcam, she began to post videos of herself singing others' pop songs and her own compositions.

The 18-year-old with a soulful voice beyond her years quickly became a YouTube celebrity. Below is a short (two-minute, 45-second) clip of Esmee Denters covering - who else - Justin Timberlake, in a soulful version of "What Goes Around."

Hot-bodied jailbait princess Hayden Panettiere of Heroes and her beau, Stephen Colletti of Laguna Beach fame, were caught hand-in-hand heading to a matinee Monday.

Inside, they got closer still.

Hayden Panettiere in Lingerie

The twosome was spotted at The Grove cinema in L.A., where they locked lips and couldn't keep their hands off each other throughout a daytime screening of Shrek The Third.

That's right, PDA at a kiddie flick. The regulators had better bump up the rating to PG-13 at this particular theater. Some material may not be suitable for children!

This is just how Stephen Colletti rolls. Hey, the guy has dated Kristin Cavallari and Lauren Conrad … simultaneously. We're not about to question the man's game.

Hayden Panettiere was wearing a solid band on her engagement ring finger. Is Mr. Colletti ready to pop the question? Is there a lifetime commitment on the way for these two?

Hayden's BFF, Rumer Willis, was not available for comment. But think about it. Hayden can legally walk down the aisle when she turns 18 … in like 86 more days and 9 hours.

As we've come to expect from these stylish gals, the stars of MTV's reality hit The Hills turned the red carpet into a catwalk at the MTV Movie Awards on Sunday.

The fabulous four sported sexy styles that ranged from lingerie-inspired frocks to rocker girl jeans, and from fun summer looks to fake boobs. Sorry, Heidi Montag. That was low.

Who wore the coolest outfit? From left to right, here are Lauren Conrad, Heidi Montag, Whitney Port and Audrina Patridge at the star-studded event ...

The drama on The Hills will surely heat up during Season 3, but for now, we'll have to settle for some good ol' clothing competition (and talking about Heidi's boob job).

Our personal picks are the lovely Lauren Conrad (of course) and her fellow Teen Vogue intern Whitney Port, if only because they look the most natural to us.

We're pretty sure Spencer Pratt has other ideas. But he's not running this site (thankfully). Anyway, leave a comment and let us know what you think.

This Photo Finish was too easy. They're BFFs. They both starred on the reality TV hit, The Simple Life. They're both exponentially overhyped and marginally talented. At best.

And they've both posed for sexy mug shots in the recent past.

All celebrity mug shots are appreciated by our celebrity gossip staffers, but these two are personal favorites. Here are the booking photos of Paris Hilton (left), and Nicole Richie...

Which celebrity mug shot is more hottttttt?

  • Paris Hilton Mug Shot
  • Nicole Richie Mug Shot

As for the incarcerated Hilton, we're obliged to update you on her status in the slammer. Supposedly, she was the cause of a small riot after got "hazed" in the shower by a couple of inmates who let her have it after she dropped the soap.

Just kidding! All is well for Paris Hilton in jail. A day or so into her 23-day term, officials are calling her a "model citizen" - gracious, thankful and polite to staff.

She's wearing a short-sleeved, orange jumpsuit. She still has on the makeup she was wearing when she turned herself in. Her hair is down. Extensions on inmates' hair, normally not allowed, are okay in her case because they're "tightly wound." In case you were wondering.

She's not interacting with any of the inmates, at least not yet, but she's seeing them through glass. She's not happy, but resigned to doing time and getting it over with. She's not scared, and she's not teary-eyed. Just quiet and reserved.

As for her cell - it's 12x8 feet, with a bunk bed, a toilet and wash basin. There are windows - a little one in the door, and one on the wall that overlooks buildings.

Yeah, if there's one thing we learned from Office Space, it's that minimum security prison is no picnic. But we think the HO-tel heiress can stomach 21 more days.

Yikes. Vanessa Minnillo may want to supplement her DVD collection with something other than The Departed and reruns of The Sopranos.

The MTV hottie finds herself the center of unwanted attention as disturbing photos have surfaced - pics taken in the early hours of June 16, 2006, in N.Y. City.

The photos show Vanessa Minnillo tugging at the top of Lindsay Lohan and engaging in bizarre and dangerous acts of knife-wielding lunacy.

The pics were taken at 4:50 a.m. in a home in Greenwich Village after a night of partying at NYC club Bungalow 8, and were later "stolen" from Lindsay Lohan's camera.

Much like the pic of Cisco Adler naked "stolen" from Paris Hilton's locker. Only not nearly as disgusting. And a little bit sexy in a twisted way.

Minnillo, who at that point had been dating Nick Lachey for just a few weeks, "got caught up in the moment and thought it would be fun," as a source puts it.

But she's not having fun now. "It was stupid and she regrets it," says the source. "They were only fooling around."

And not the sort of fooling around Calum Best was used to, peeps.

Anyway. Who thought when they woke up this morning, they'd see Vanessa with a knife held to her throat? And Lindsay Lohan holding it!?

These photos are only slightly less disturbing than the Jason Wahler gun pictures that surfaced a few months back... and a lot more unexpected.

Much as we rejoice at the demise of Firecrotch, who's back in rehab now, we never literally wish her or any other star harm. These pics are pretty messed up.

Kim Kardashian: The Booty[Below, an intern at The Hollywood Gossip prank calls Kim Kardashian]

*** ring .... ring ... ring ... ***

Kim Kardashian: "Hello?"
THG Intern: "Hi, may I please speak to Hugh?"
Kim Kardashian: [confused] "What? Hugh who?"
THG Intern: [high-fives editor] "Hugh Jass!"
Kim Kardashian: [slams phone in disgust]

You really don't need a fake crank call or even a celebrity gossip blog to point out that Kim Kardashian has some of the most ridiculous, back-dat-ass-up booty in Hollywood.

But we'll spell it out for you anyway.

Honestly, that thing needs its own air traffic control tower, because you could land helicopters on it. What the hell is going on back there? We know some guys like a li'l somethin' to grab on to and all, but is this sex tape star's butt even real?

Would Kim opt to go the route of Heidi Montag and get implants... only in the back instead of the front? Or has she just made too many trips to the In-n-Out Burger with Britney Spears?

It's difficult to say.

There are only two men who can comment for sure on the state of that ass. Ray J, we're waiting for your feedback. Call us, dog. Reggie Bush, holla at us.

For those of you used to seeing Keira Knightley as an anorexic waif, well, don't expect that to change anytime soon. Or maybe ever.

But for those accustomed to Keira as an old-fashioned, wholesome English lady, well, hope you're sitting down for this piece of celebrity gossip.

Scarlett Johansson Nude Photo

She's going to be showing more than her talent, if you know what we're talkin' about, in the upcoming film, Atonement.

What we're talking about is Keira Knightley nude.

And not just for the eyes of Rupert Friend.

According to the film's director, Joe Wright, it was about damn time for the cute little Keira Knightley to blossom into womanhood.

"I wanted to cast Keira as a woman, as a sexual character. She's only ever played girls before. There is a key scene with James McAvoy where she dives into a deep fountain to retrieve a broken vase… Keira emerges from the water and stands on the fountain's edge. It was her idea to stand there for quite so long - but I quite liked it."

Apparently there was even more skin filmed that we won't see.

"There was another shot of her from behind but we left it out as it seemed a bit too rude," said Wright.

Paris Hilton wouldn't shy away from that. But that's another story.

But don't think showing skin on screen is tough for Keira Knightley, who's also in talks to portray Princess Diana in a new movie.

The skinny starlet recently admitted she loves stripping naked in her movies and finds sex scenes "liberating."

There's more to come. She's rumored to be in an on-screen threesome with Sienna Miller and Matthew Rhys in the Dylan Thomas biopic "The Edge of Love."

Yes. Potential girl-on-girl action with Sienna Miller. Pretty far removed from the likes of Elizabeth Swann, wouldn't you say? We gotta respect that. Now if we could just get her to wolf down a few dozen hamburgers, we'd be all good.
