Hollywood stunner Angelina Jolie is all
set to bed actor Pierce Brosnan in her next big feature film.
The Tomb Raider actress has been roped in to star opposite Brosnan in
the sequel to the 1999 film, The Thomas Crown Affair.
And the buzzword is that the sequel, titled The Topkapi Affair will be
full of steamy bedroom scenes between the ex-007 and Jolie.
“Pierce is keen to turn The Thomas Crown films into a long-running
series of movies. He reckons it can work just as well as Bond or The
Bourne Identity sequels,” The Sun quoted a source, as saying.

Bachchan says media distorted his temple
Bollywood star Amitabh Bachchan is
angry with the media for saying that his family visited several temples
and performed rituals because of a flaw in the horoscope of his new
daughter-in-law, actress Aishwarya Rai.
“I have not seen Aishwarya’s horoscope. Neither has she. Two people have
decided to get married ... She’s a blessing to the family,” the actor
told a leading national daily in an interview published on Wednesday.
Bachchan’s actor son Abhishek married Rai, a former beauty queen and top
actresses, in a glittering ceremony in April.
The media have reported that both families made religious offerings at
temples considered auspicious among Hindus.
The reports also claimed that Rai is ‘manglik’ or has Mars in her
astrological chart, a condition many in the conservative country believe
could be disastrous for marriage.
Some news reports suggested that Rai underwent a number of rituals
before the marriage took place to end her ‘manglik’ status.
Bachchan has always denied those reports.
“I ask you as a citizen, is it a crime to go to a temple?” Bachchan said
in the interview.
