Britney Spears’ Freudian slip

Maybe all of the engagement rumors about her and Jason Trawick have been sinking in with Britney Spears, as the singer flubbed when referring to her boyfriend during a recent radio interview in the U.K. When asked about dressing up in costumes — her sons recently had a Spider-Man-themed birthday party — Spears said, “Actually me and — I was going to say my husband — my boyfriend, we do that every once in a while. We’re goobs. I’m so embarrassed.” So was it just a Freudian slip or a hint at some big news to come?

Thomas Jane relates to his ‘Hung’ hero

“Hung” star Thomas Jane is being remarkably frank about his early days in Hollywood, telling the L.A. Times that he used to perform sexual favors for men to get by. “When I was a kid out here in L.A., I was homeless. I didn’t have any money and I was living in my car. I wasn’t averse to going down to Santa Monica Boulevard and letting a guy buy me a sandwich. Know what I mean?” he reveals. “You’re a lot more open to experimentation as a young man. And for me, being a young artist and broke in Los Angeles, I was exploring my sexual identity.”

Pattinson goes out with a whimper

With filming on the “Twilight” films behind him, Robert Pattinson admits he’s a bit disappointed with how it all ended, according to Hollyscoop. When Pattinson and Kristen Stewart filmed their final scene, there was still another day of filming left for the crew, he explains. “The wolves actually wrapped the whole movie, so our bit was such an anti-climax because it was the end of a week of night shoots,” Pattinson says. “But they had the last-ever day the next day. So when it was our last bit, no one clapped or anything.”

Seth Rogen: Happy being kid-free

While he may be a happy newlywed, Seth Rogen is definitely not jumping into starting a family. “All my friends are having kids and my sister just had a baby last year, and it makes me not want to have kids,” the “50/50” star tells iVillage. “It’s very nice just playing with [my sister’s baby] and then as soon as it becomes difficult, you just hand it off.” As for his relationship with new wife Lauren Miller, Rogen says he’s done a lot of growing up himself, thanks to her. “I talk much quieter generally, conversationally,” he says. “I don’t interrupt as much. But I’m cleaner than she is.”
