Cruz picked up Oscar gown eight years ago

The vintage Balmain gown Penelope Cruz wore to the Oscars, last Sunday was one the Spanish star picked out eight years ago, but never wore. Cruz, who picked up the night’s Best Supporting Actress award, bowed the crowds as she arrived at the Academy Awards in a 60-year-old dress. “I found this dress eight years ago and I was saving it for something very special,” she said.

Chris Brown trying to win Rihanna back

Chris Brown is trying to work his way back into Rihanna’s good graces. He supposedly called her on her birthday and even sent gifts.
“Chris called Rihanna to wish her a happy birthday,” an insider stated. “He’s absolutely trying to get back into her good graces. He knows he’s very much in the doghouse right now, and is doing everything he can to show her how sorry he is.”
But Brown seems to think a few well-placed birthday gifts can salve his ex’s wounds. He has already sent the “Good Girl Gone Bad” singer a diamond bracelet and necklace, as well as an iPod Touch. Plus, Brown’s mom, Joyce, who is said to adore Rihanna, sent over a bouquet of flowers.

 
Stone splits from lover

Soul singer Joss Stone has been dumped by her teenage boyfriend.
The You Had Me hitmaker, 21, had been dating 19-year-old boat builder Danny Radford since December, last year. But reports claim that Radford has ended the romance to start a new life in France, after growing disillusioned with Stone’s celebrity lifestyle. “Danny adores Joss but he couldn’t put up with her constantly being away. He’s upset but wants to make a fresh start. Joss seems cool about it,” claimed a source.

Twilight’s Kristen Stewart: I’m not dating Rob Pattinson

Kristen Stewart may be completely enamoured with her undead boyfriend in Twilight, but the actress insists her intense romance with co-star Robert Pattinson is reserved for the big screen.
“Rob and I are good friends. We went through a lot together, so we feel very close,” the newly-minted It-girl says of her sexy co-star. Stewart has been dating actor Michael Angarano since 2006, but that hasn’t stopped rumours of an off-screen fling with her Twilight co-star. “If we go out in public, every little detail is scrutinised, like the way I stand next to him. And it’s like, I know this guy really well,” she says. “It’s only natural that we’re sort of leaning on each other, because we’re put in the most … psychotic situations.”
Stewart and Pattinson will reprise their roles in the Twilight sequel, New Moon, which begins filming in March and is set to open on November 20, 2009. The third film in the series, Eclipse, will arrive June 30, 2010.

Ryan Seacrest dissed again by Brangelina

On the red carpet for the Oscars last Sunday, Ryan Seacrest must have thought that maybe it was a fluke that Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt totally brushed past him at the Golden Globes earlier this year.
He had tried to nab an interview with the Academy Award-nominated couple on the red carpet for the Oscars night. But when Seacrest approached the A-listers, Brad shrugged him off by saying, “I can’t. I can’t. I gotta get inside.”
