Talking points

Sarah Jessica Parker and her son.

Another actor in the family

Sarah Jessica Parker admits that James Wilkie, her 8-year-old son with husband Matthew Broderick, is itching to get into the family business and become an actor. “I don’t want him to do it until after he goes to college,” she tells Parade magazine. “But part of me thinks maybe it’s better if he knows the truth now about how hard it is to be a working actor. I don’t know if he grasps what it took to get us here.”

Carey to be on ‘X-Factor’

It looks like Mariah Carey will be a part of the U.S. edition of “The X-Factor” after all, but she won’t be sitting behind the judges’ table, according to People magazine. “Mariah is definitely confirmed to be a part of ‘X Factor,’” a source says, explaining that Carey will be a guest of a judge instead of a judge herself. “She is confirmed to tape something with Simon Cowell at the judge’s homes.”

Fox: Marilyn no more

Megan Fox
says she’s removing the massive portrait of Marilyn Monroe tattooed on her forearm because it caused “negative energy,” according to Hollyscoop. “It’s a negative character, as she suffered from personality disorders and was bipolar,” Fox explains. “I do not want to attract this kind of negative energy in my life. I’m removing it.” So does this mean her many other tattoos aren’t safe either? “Who knows, maybe I’ll remove the others too,” she says. “But the laser hurts.”
