Fox takes on  bus driver

“Lost” star Matthew Fox was detained by police in Cleveland after an altercation outside a bar with a female bus driver, according to TMZ. The driver, Heather Borman, says a clearly inebriated Fox was trying to board the party bus she was driving, though he wasn’t a part of the group who had rented it. “He just kept staring at me with his mouth wide open and not saying anything. I told him, ‘You have to leave buddy. You are trespassing on my bus,’” Borman says, adding that Fox then “leaned in and started punching my crotch and breast.” Borman struck back, punching Fox in the face and splitting his lip, which deterred the actor. Borman says she was acting in self-defense.

Jolie clears things up

With all the speculation going around about her family life, Angelina Jolie wants to clear a few things up. “I’m not pregnant. I’m not adopting at the moment,” Jolie tells Vanity Fair, adding that there is no “secret wedding” planned for her and Brad Pitt. Jolie is more concerned with her directorial debut, “In the Land of Blood and Honey,” and says that Pitt tried his best to be helpful during the making of the project. “He’d come in and say what he liked or what he didn’t understand,” she says. “Like any woman, I would listen to most of it and fight a few things. He’s been so supportive. But it’s hard to separate the person that loves you from the critic, so I don’t think he’s a fair judge.”

Winslet recounts fire

Kate Winslet is finally breaking her silence about her harrowing escape from a recent house fire on Richard Branson’s private Caribbean island. “I’m just glad that everyone is safe,” Winslet tells Entertainment Tonight. “I will never forget Richard placing his arms around both my children as we were watching the flames, and saying, ‘At the end of the day, what you realize is that all that matters is the people that you love. Everything else is just stuff.’”
