Brad Pitt

Mueller and Sheen in Mexico

Three months after their divorce was finalized, Charlie Sheen and Brooke Mueller are reportedly “thinking of getting back together,” a source tells Us Weekly. The pair were spotted over the weekend boarding a private jet together to Mexico and smiling. “She’s totally gung-ho,” the source says. “He just wants his kids to be happy, and if that means they need to be a family, then he is up for it. The kids have suffered a lot, and he feels so guilty lately.”

Brad Pitt’s fish tale

Brad Pitt isn’t letting long shooting days on “World War Z” keep him from enjoying being in Scotland. The actor reportedly took his sons out for a bit of fishing recently on the grounds of their lavish rented estate, according to Us Weekly. “Brad looked very proud of the boys, despite the fact that no one managed to catch anything,” a source says. “I don’t think Brad particularly cared about getting a bite.”

The lady for Radcliffe

Daniel Radcliffe’s
mystery girlfriend has been identified as Rosanne Coker, a production assistant who worked on the last three “Harry Potter” films as well as Radcliffe’s upcoming “The Woman in Black,” according to the Daily Mail. “They would really prefer to keep things quiet,” her father, Malcolm Coker, tells the newspaper. “But they have been going out for just over a year now. I have met Daniel and he is a lovely guy.”

Kim Stewart is a mom

Kimberly Stewart
gave birth to a baby girl Sunday in Los Angeles, according to Us Weekly. While the baby’s father, Oscar-winner Benicio del Toro, was not present at the hospital, new grandfather Rod Stewart was. “Benicio is the father and very supportive,” del Toro’s rep said earlier this year. “Although [he and Kimberly] are not a couple, they are looking forward to the arrival of the baby.”
