Cruz picked up Oscar gown eight years ago
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
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.

The You Had Me hitmaker, 21, had been dating

has ended the romance to start a new life in France,

Twilight’s Kristen Stewart: I’m not dating Rob
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.”
