On the big screen again?

Given that they first met and fell in love filming “Mr. and Mrs. Smith,” it’s no surprise that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are looking to team up on-screen once again. “We’re not ones to repeat ourselves, but we’d like to, because right now, we’re hopscotching with films so one can be with the kids and one’s free to work,” Pitt says in an interview with NPR. “And why aren’t we doing them together? Why aren’t we doing everything together?”

Kim Cattrall moves on

With no new “Sex and the City” work on the horizon, Kim Cattrall says she’s feeling more relieved than anything else. “I’m having such a good time being footloose and fancy free and not having to check in and say, ‘Is it OK if I do this or do that?’” she tells E! Online. “There’s no mom and pop standing over me. I enjoy that.” So what is the actress doing with her time? “I’m dating, getting out there,” Cattrall says. “It’s scary but also it’s exciting. It’s both of those things. It’s a tight rope, you know? It’s feeling like you’re 14 again, which you kind of like when you’re 54.”

Planning the newest Becks

David and Victoria Beckham have reportedly set the date to welcome their first daughter, planning the birth for July 4 in a private hospital in Los Angeles, according to the Sun. The Beckhams, who already have three sons, were reportedly planning to welcome the girl at London’s Portland Hospital. “While the date hasn’t changed, it was decided a Los Angeles clinic would be best for the immediate family,” a source says. “Victoria and David love America, its culture and her people, who have welcomed them with open arms. The most important thing is the health of mother and baby and things can always change at the last minute. But if it’s possible for the baby to be born on Independence Day, Vic and David would be thrilled.”
