Dealing with the fallout of girlfriend Kristen Stewart‘s admission of an affair with director Rupert Sanders, “Twilight” star Robert Pattinson is reportedly hiding out — at pal Reese Witherspoon‘s ranch in Ojai, Calif., according to Us Weekly. Pattinson is “a total mess” and “doesn’t know what to do,” a source says. “He’s questioning everything.” Meanwhile, an “inconsolable” Stewart has reportedly been trying to reach out to Pattinson. “She’s dying to save the relationship. It’s the only thing she cares about.”

Tom Cruise is pulling out all the stops for his time with daughter Suri in the wake of his divorce from Katie Holmes — and he’s not above a trip to the Magic Kingdom. Cruise headed to Walt Disney World with his daughter and other family members this week, with the 6-year-old dressed up as a mermaid. “Suri looked like she was in heaven,” another park-goer tells People magazine. “It was really cute. She was walking around like she owned the place, having the time of her life, and Tom —who looked really handsome — was talking to her, was really engaging with her.”

Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake probably aren’t getting married soon, if Biel’s level of preparation for the big day is any indication. The actress says she’s prepared “almost nothing” for her wedding. “I’m just being engaged. I do fee like there is a lot time and nothing needs to be rushed,” she says, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. “Everyone tells me that being engages is the really special moment — not that it gets bad when you’re married. But being engaged is just absolutely amazing. You’re in this romantic, ahhh, breathless moment that I’m just trying to extend as long as possible.”

Russell Brand is coming under fire for recent comments he made about whether he’d have Sarah Palin as a guest on his new show, “Brand X.” The comedian told critics at the TCA press tour that he would — but not to talk politics. “I’d go straight to the subtext,” Brand said. “People want to f— her, don’t they? That’s why they tolerate the other stuff. OK, that is a mad thing to say about seeing Russia out your window — but the d— don’t lie.” The remarks have caused an uproar, including a scolding by women’s right activist Sandra Fluke, who posted to to Twitter: “Female politicians deserve to be judged on merits of their ideas only.”

“New Girl” star and Emmy nominee Max Greenfield has a new pen pal: Gwyneth Paltrow. “We e-mail all the time but I’ve never met her,” Greenfield tells Us Weekly, explaining that he and Paltrow became virtually acquainted when he wrote a piece for her site, Goop. “I emailed her recently and said, ‘Hey, Gwyneth, what if my next piece for Goop was me getting ready for the Emmys?’ She was like, ‘Done!’ So now we are going to document it and put it on Goop.”

Karl Lagerfeld is not a fan of Pippa Middleton, despite being all for her sister. “Kate Middleton has a nice silhouette and she is the right girl for [Prince William]. I like that kind of woman. I like romantic beauties,” the fashion icon and Chanel creative director tells the Sun. “On the other hand, her sister struggles. I don’t like the sister’s face. She should only show her back.”
