Reese’s close call

Reese Witherspoon was hit by a car while jogging in Santa Monica, though she wasn’t seriously injured, according to People magazine. The driver, an 84-year-old woman, was cited for failing to yield to a pedestrian in a crosswalk, say reports. Witherspoon is “resting comfortably at home,” according to her rep.

Simpson:?Utterly untrue

Jessica Simpson heard the reports that she’s planning to get a breast reduction in advance of her upcoming wedding, and she’s not too happy about them. The voluptuous singer took to Twitter to clear things up. “Been getting lots of questions about this alleged breast reduction,” Simpson wrote. “Not to worry. I love my boobies! They aren’t going anywhere!”

Paltrow: ‘We’re flawed’

Gwyneth Paltrow isn’t judging her friends that step out on their spouses — but she’s not keeping quiet about it, either. “Life is complicated and long, and I know people that I respect and admire and look up to who have had extramarital affairs,” Paltrow said while doing promotional duties at the Venice International Film Festival. “We’re flawed. We’re human beings, and sometimes you make choices that other people are going to judge. That’s their problem, but I think that the more I love my life, the more I learn not to judge people for what they do. I think we’re all trying our best, but life is complicated.”

Cyrus: Be true to yourself


Miley Cyrus
is trying to come to terms with the extreme views others have about her. “People have very mixed opinions on me. I’m a great role model, or I’m completely inappropriate for anyone under 13 and I am controversial. I don’t know how I became this,” she tells Prestige magazine. “It’s weird. Two complete extremes. I’m not some crazy lady who’s gone off the deep end, because I definitely haven’t.”
