While Halle Berry is hoping to make her temporary restraining order against ex Gabriel Aubry permanent following his bloody Thanksgiving row with her fiancé, Olivier Martinez, Aubry himself is reportedly seeking legal protection, according to TMZ. In his legal declaration following the incident, Aubry claims that Martinez threatened his life and used intimidating language the day before the fight during a school play featuring Nahla, the daughter Berry and Aubry share. Aubry has been granted a restraining order of his own against Martinez.

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie may be finally making good on their engagement and getting married sooner rather than later. “I am getting more pressure from my kids, and it is something I want to do within their lifetime,” he tells reporters at the “Killing Them Softly” premiere, according to Hollyscoop. “But I also feel like the time has come. The time is now. It’s soon. I got a good feeling about it.” And Pitt admits it’s not just pressure from the kids that has him eager to tie the knot. It turns out he’s into the idea as well: “We’ve had a family, we’ve raised the kids. I am surprised how much [marriage] meant to me once you had that,” he says.

Shia LaBeouf
has split up with his girlfriend of two years, Karolyn Pho, according to Us Weekly. A source tells the magazine that the “Lawless” star and stylist Pho actually broke up “a while ago,” and LaBeouf is clearly already moving on, having been spotted cozying up to a mystery blonde over the weekend at L.A.’s the Magic Castle.

It turns out Angus T. Jones — who for years has played the “half man” on “Two and a Half Men” — isn’t that big a fan of his own show, and he doesn’t think you should be either. “If you watch ‘Two and a Half Men,’ please stop watching,” he says in a video interview with Christian Web site Forerunner Chronicles. “I’m on ‘Two and a Half Men,’ and I don’t want to be on it. Please stop watching it, please stop filling your head with filth.” Jones, who makes a reported $350,000 per episode of the high-rated sitcom, recently announced he is a born-again Christian, which supposedly explains the change of heart about what he does for a living.

J.K. Rowling is a bit of a wizard when it comes to real estate. The bestselling author recently sold the Edinburgh, Scotland home — where she wrote four of her seven “Harry Potter” novels — for $3.6 million after just three weeks on the market, according to People magazine. Rowling bought the top half of the home in 1999 and later bought the downstairs section and converted it into a single home with eight bedrooms, a walled garden and a detached office in the back. The buyer is an anonymous Scottish businessman.
