Kellan Lutz: Not a robot

Britney Spears doesn’t get everything she wants, apparently, as the singer had her sights set on making out with “Twilight” hunk Kellan Lutz for her latest video, “I Wanna Go,” according to E! Online. But Lutz reportedly turned down the offer to co-star in the video, which would’ve featured him rescuing her from paparazzi and locking lips in the backseat of a car — until she discovers he’s a robot. There’s no word on who will take on the role.

Jennifer’s newest man

Jennifer Aniston has reportedly taken an active interest in Justin Theroux, her co-star in the upcoming “Wanderlust,” according to Us Weekly. “Jen is totally into him,” a source says. “They have been hanging out for months. She wants to be with him all the time. She’s diving in headfirst.” The pair were spotted having dinner together last week at the Sunset Tower Hotel, but Aniston’s rep denied the dating rumors at the time, telling Celebuzz, “What the story neglects to mention is the three additional people also at the dinner. It was a dinner with friends — that’s all.”

Love doesn’t want your sob story

Courtney Love is sick of younger celebrities coming to her for help. “Lindsay Lohan called me after she was arrested,” Love tells The Fix. “For some reason, Kim Stewart also called me when Paris Hilton got pulled over for her last DUI. I’m not even that friendly with these girls. What am I, a junkie Auntie Mame?” But that doesn’t mean she won’t still help friends, like Kelly Osbourne: “This is a girl whose life I have saved twice,” Love says. “Once with CPR and another time with CPR and violence — by which I mean I had to poke her furiously in certain places to wake her up from her coma.”
