Attention, anorexic waifs of the entertainment world: you're on notice.

No, Stephen Colbert is not involved. Someone a hell of a lot more attractive is calling you out. No offense, Steve.

Anne at the Oscars

In The Devil Wears Prada, the main character, fashion intern Andy Sachs, is told she is fat because she wears a size six.

But the awesome actress who played her, Anne Hathaway, is not about to get caught up in trying to be thinner.

"Obsessing about weight is a big old waste of time," the 24-year-old Anne tells the British edition of Glamour in its April issue.

"It's completely understandable as a teenager to fret about your body," she said. "It's scary because you don't know how it's going to wind up. But I'm not a teenager any more; my body's chosen its shape. I'd rather be strong than skinny for most roles."

We'd say we hope that Nicole Richie and Mischa Barton are reading this, but it's hard to peruse the Internet when your head's inside a toilet.

For her part, Hathaway, who has battled depression in the past, admits she's not a size zero and that she's gotten flak for it from directors. But it doesn't phase her.

"'I've had directors say to me, 'You're the best actress for the role, but you've put on weight recently.' If people can't understand you've put on five pounds, I don't want to deal with them."

THG NOTE: We would love to rip Kate Bosworth here, but recent evidence suggests she may have also come to this realization.

Hathaway last year had to lose weight for her Prada role, telling reporters at a press conference in Venice that not eating that extra croissant was "a question of how much you're willing to commit."

The actress, who is transformed from frump to fabulous in both Prada and The Princess Diaries, jokes to Glamour that she is "the makeover queen of my generation."

"My entire career's been dependent on my ability to look unattractive," she says.

When you look at these Anne Hathaway pictures, you realize what an amazing feat that is.

Are Tom Cruise and his brainwashed, submissive, mute, formerly hot wife expecting yet another visit from the stork in the near future?

According to TMZ, a TomKat confidante went to trendy West Hollywood baby boutique Petit Tresor last week, looking for four "scenarios" for a boy's nursery.

Suri Scores Toys

The friend of Cruise and Katie Holmes was overheard saying:

"We want to be prepared for a baby boy."

Awesome.

We're told the interested themes for unnamed baby boy's room were: sports, nursery rhyme, Scientology, cartoon and the color blue.

Just kidding about the middle one. What would that consist of, though? A bunch of aliens landing and populating the planet and jumping on couches, probably.

Anyway. The estimated cost for an eggshell, blue-themed room alone is a steep $45,000 - but includes a custom-made blue and white antique crib, blue bedding and blue walls with floating clouds, so it's so worth it.

Well, if you're having an alien baby, anyway. Personally, we'd save our money for more important things. Like a Lauren Conrad-inspired wardrobe.

Moving on. The shop was also given a deadline of April 15, three days before little Asian cutie Suri Cruise's first birthday, to come up with the designs.

If the Cruises are expecting a little brother for Suri in the near future, the question is: Is Katie Holmes already preggers, or will said boy arrive via a Third World shopping spree?

Regardless of whether Katie is knocked up like Bridget Moynahan or hunting for an adopted child abroad like Brangelina, the bottom line remains the same:

TomKat is just plain strange.

It seems that the sexy co-stars of the new movie Rendition may have come away with a little more than just eight-figure paychecks.

Well, probably not. But T.H. Gossip can't help but speculate on two of its favorite stars potentially hooking up.

Reese Waves

No, not Katie Rees and Antonella Barba. Get your minds out of the gutter.

According to OK! Magazine, the adorable Reese Witherspoon and T.H. Gossip man crush Jake Gyllenhaal have been spotted hopping between each other's homes and hotel rooms!

Reese, who separated from husband Ryan Phillippe on October 30, after he possibly banged Abbie Cornish, has been seen laughing and cavorting with Gyllenhaal of late.

Maybe Witherspoon can answer the riddle of whether he wears boxers or briefs!

Jake was linked to Natalie Portman awhile back, but the only woman in his life right now is his adorable niece, Ramona. So maybe he and Reese have a future together! Or at the very least, more pics on our site!

Her signature style - a California chic look featuring flirty dresses and trendy tops, often complemented with a headband - has inspired many young viewers.

Now, legions of women can emulate Lauren Conrad fashion in the real world - and online.

Lauren Conrad Beauty

MTV and the girl we have come to know and love as LC have announced the first-ever celebrity-inspired digital fashion line to be introduced in the "Virtual Hills" virtual world.

In addition, The Hills star will develop a real-world fashion line that will be available in high-end boutiques, retail stores and online later this fall.

The introduction of Lauren Conrad's physical and virtual world fashion lines takes the concept of personal expression to new heights.

These days, many viewers take their online persona as seriously as their real-world presence.

The virtual clothing line, called Virtual Hills, debuted Monday on LC's hit show.

As Lauren, who interns at Teen Vogue, continues to design her fashion line, she's looking for feedback from virtual world patrons to help tailor the styles that make their way to boutiques later this year.

"Our audience has always felt a connection to Lauren since she first appeared on Laguna Beach and we've created innovative platforms online - first with MTV and now with Virtual Hills - for fans to connect with her," said Christina Norman, President of MTV.

Needless to say, America's sweetheart is ecstatic about the project.

"I was so excited to hear MTV was launching Virtual Hills and felt this was a great opportunity for me to bring fashion to technology," said Conrad, who is a fashion major at the Fashion Institute of Design in Los Angeles in addition to interning at Teen Vogue.

"We've been working really hard to create sensible, yet trendy fashions that young girls can wear in their real life or virtual life and that project a true sense of self. I'm excited to build relationships with my fans in Virtual Hills and then apply feedback to my real-world designs."

Lauren had no comment on her ex, Jason Wahler, being sentenced to jail time, or how BFF Heidi Montag - a fashion queen in her own right - feels about the new virtual clothing line.

You're not in The Hills anymore, jackass.

Well, not unless the Los Angeles County Jail is nestled between hills of some kind. And we're guessing it's not. That part of town is pretty flat.

Either way, Jason Wahler, star of The Hills and Laguna Beach, pleaded no contest to one count of battery, and was sentenced to 60 days in jail.

To prove just how often Jason Wahler gets arrested, this story is not related to this past weekend, when his punk ass was thrown in jail after resisting arrest during an underage drinking raid in a North Carolina nightclub.

No, his jail time is the result of a September 2006 altercation in which Wahler, 20, and model Kristin DeLuca, 25, were arrested and charged with battery. Their vehicle being blocked by a city vehicle and a tow truck, which were attempting to move an illegally parked car.

Naturally, they freaked, jumping out of their car and starting a fight with the city employee and the tow truck drivers. Wahler punched one of the drivers and DeLuca kicked the tow operator and spit in his face. Yikes. Downright Naomi Campbell-esque!

The drivers called the cops after restraining Wahler, who used to actually date Lauren Conrad. His blood alcohol level at the time of his arrest was 0.22 - nearly three times the legal limit.

Wahler pleaded no contest to one count of battery, and in addition to jail time, was ordered to attend 104 AA meetings and 36 hours of anger management classes.

DeLuca pleaded no contest to one count of battery and was sentenced to 24 months of probation. She also must serve 15 days working on the road with CalTrans.

Wahler, who was also busted last year in New York for bribery, criminal possession of a controlled substance, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct, must participate in a one-day Museum of Tolerance program because of racial slurs he uttered during the L.A. beating.

Jason Wahler has until May 4 to turn himself in. In the meantime, we encourage him to consult Andy Dick and/or Michael Richards and/or Isaiah Washington for advice. Wait, no.

Yeah! Take that, Tom Brady!

It's good to see that Bridget isn't letting a bastard Brady bun in the oven bum her out.

Bridget Moynahan Nude

It's true. A radiant Bridget Moynahan showed that she's just fine, thanks, as she stepped out last night into the bitter New York chill to take in a play with some supportive pals.

The media caught up with Bridget, who broke up with Brady in December. She was flanked by friends Fisher Stevens and Jane Krakowski at the premiere of "Spalding Gray: Stories Left to Tell" at Greenwich Village's Minetta Lane Theater.

When Moynahan arrived for the start of the play, she rubbed her burgeoning belly - she's more than three months pregnant - for all to admire.

Also taking in the show and braving the ridiculous, sub-zero cold, were Matt Dillon, "O Brother, Where Art Thou" star Tim Blake Nelson, Moby, and designer-actress Tara Subkoff.

Sadly, Gisele Bundchen and her studly quarterback beau weren't on hand. Now that would have made for some intense, bone-chilling drama!

Britney Spears has been in rehab for two weeks.

Which is good. But doctors are still concerned about her condition.

"They're in shock at what bad shape she's in," says an insider.

Another source says that since Spears checked in to Promises Treatment Center in Malibu, Calif., on February 21 (for the second time, after bailing after 24 hours the first time), the troubled singer "has been getting in tons of trouble."

In fact, the 25-year-old mother of Sean Preston and Jayden James has been formally reprimanded for making cellphone calls, has left the facility to shop, and now she wants to leave rehab for good.

"She's convinced she's suffering from postpartum depression and does not think she has an alcohol or drug problem," the source says.

"She's angry at her family and her manager, Larry Rudolph, for pressuring her to enter the program. She feels she was ambushed."

Never mind that Kevin Federline and the rest of the family members who "ambushed" Brit are worried sick about her - and her infant children.

However, according to another reformed wild child, Courtney Love, whether or not Britney Spears gets better is entirely up to Britney Spears:

"You don't stop until you want to stop," Love said. "You can't make someone stop."

The fact that Courtney Love and Daniel Baldwin are offering advice to our girl is somewhat amusing to T.H. Gossip. But hey, they mean well.

Naomi Campbell likes to beat people.

Too bad she couldn't beat the legal system.

Campbell in Cannes

Well, not entirely. Her recent sentence - community service, in which she must mop the floors of New York's Sanitation Department, starting March 19 - is pretty light when you consider she assaults people.

The supermodel, who received the punishment after being found guilty of throwing a phone at her maid, will complete five days of court-ordered community service at the Manhattan garage for trash-trucks.

Campbell will wear an orange vest and workman's boots.

During the court case, lawyers for the British model told the judge that she would not agree to "do a Boy George."

We're not entirely sure what she means.

But the ex-Culture Club singer was once ordered to sweep the streets of New York wearing a bright orange jacket, after being found guilty of lying to police about a burglary.

Soon they might be calling this "doing a Nicole Richie."

Campbell will be allowed to stay inside the garage out of the public view, so as to avoid widespread ridicule. The 36-year-old, seen here with actor and friend Terrence Howard, pleaded guilty to a misdemeanour assault in January.

After being arrested for hurling a crystal-encrusted phone at Ana Scolavino last March, Naomi Campbell apologized and said she needs to take responsibility for her actions. Scolavino needed four stitches to the head.

Someone's gotta get Pete Doherty into one of those jumpsuits. He and Naomi can pass the time mopping like mad, shooting up on breaks and talking about the latest developments in the Anna Nicole Smith drama.

The investigative staff of TMZ has learned that the Beverly Hills Police Department is investigating Good Charlotte singer Joel Madden after a female photographer filed a report claiming he attacked her.

The incident took place during a violent confrontation Sunday night, in which the wannabe bad boy and his anemic girlfriend, Nicole Richie, went out to dinner at a Beverly Hills hot spot.

Welcome, 2010!

According to police sources, the woman claimed Madden struck her on the left breast "with the heel of his hand" as the rocker tried to escort his anorexic waif, Richie, out of the back door of Mr. Chow restaurant.

Is this complete crap, or did Madden go Jason Wahler on the gal? The photographer tells TMZ that she has a welt to prove it, and had to see a doctor for treatment.

In video taken of the incident (which you can view here), Madden can be seen giving the Heisman - throwing a forceful, open-handed stiff-arm into the chest of another paparazzo - moments after the alleged breast slapping.

Police say they take every claim seriously (unless they involve Pete Doherty), and a crime report was taken on this incident. A rep for Madden had no comment.

Tisk, tisk, Joel. You can't go doing things like this. No doubt Nicole's previous beau, the great Brody Jenner, wouldn't hurt a fly. Heck, he tried to make Nicole eat!

Tom Cruise hearts Katie Holmes.

A lot.

A Happy Family

So much so that the crazy, male half of TomKat is going to spend every day on the set of her new film.

Every. Single. Day.

According to the New York Post, Katie Holmes will be going to Shreveport, La., to begin work on Mad Money, a chick-buddy-heist flick also starring Diane Keaton and Queen Latifah, in the next month or so.

And the ever-present, possibly insane Tom has told the producers that he's planning to be on set every day, with baby Suri Cruise in tow.

What's more, an industry insider says that Tom personally chose the movie for Katie because there's no love interest for her and no love scenes.

In other words, no crotch shot potential.

Talk about a tight leash. For the record, a producer for Mad Money tells the Post he doesn't know if Cruise'll be around, and a TomKat rep had no comment.

We can only wonder if Scientology handlers will be on hand as well. You know, in case Katie should be propositioned by any impostors.
