Amanda Seyfried

Leo’s not in it for the money

Leonardo DiCaprio has had plenty of box-office success — not that he’s keeping score. “Throughout my career, I never knew which movies of mine made money and which didn’t,” he tells GQ. “The [money] stuff never mattered to me until I was into my 30s and got interested in producing. … But even now I say that unless you want to prove that you can carry a film with your name, continuously trying to achieve box-office success is a dead end.”

Do tell, Amanda Seyfried …

Amanda Seyfried isn’t the type of actress to complain about onscreen intimacy. “Sex scenes are great. A lot of my co-stars have been sexy guys my age, and so, why not? I’m not going to pretend it’s not fun,” she tells W magazine. Her latest co-star to fit that bill — in the sci-fi thriller “In Time” — is Justin Timberlake. “Justin was great,” she says. “He had come from ‘Friends with Benefits,’ where he basically had sex every day at work, and so it was easy for both of us.”

Buy Hilary Duff’s home

Hilary Duff is looking to unload her Toluca Lake home once again, according to AOL Real Estate. The pregnant singer first listed the 9,000-square-foot Spanish-style home in 2010 for $7 million but was unable to find a buyer. The home has been re-listed at $6.25 million.
