Tuesday gossip roundup: Cameron Diaz flirts with Robert Pattinson

One of Lindsay Lohan‘s recent run-ins with the law is coming back to haunt her — and it could mean jail time. The troubled actress was involved in a car accident over the summer, and at the time she told the police she had been a passenger in the car and not the driver despite witness accounts to the contrary. Now, the Santa Monica City Attorney is reportedly planning to file the case as a misdemeanor this week, according to TMZ. And as Lohan is still on probation, a charge of lying to police is enough to send Lohan back to jail, though it likely won’t be for very long.

“Twilight” co-stars Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart may be back together, but apparently someone forgot to inform Cameron Diaz. The actress reportedly got quite flirty with Pattinson at a recent gala dinner in Los Angeles, according to Us Weekly. “She was pretty obvious,” a source says. “Cam was seated next to Rob at dinner. She was touching his arm, doing her big Cameron laugh at everything he said and trying really hard. He was polite, but not having it.”

It’s never too late to tell the truth, apparently. Kirstie Alley has revealed that she and the late Patrick Swayze began an “intense emotional relationship” while filming the 1985 miniseries “North and South,” according to Entertainment Tonight. “Both of us were married,” Alley explains, adding that she wouldn’t call what happened between them “an affair,” exactly. “But again, I think what we did was worse,” she says. “Because I think when you fall in love with someone when you’re married, you jeopardize your own marriage and their marriage. It’s doubly bad.” Alley says that she’s not sure if Swayze’s widow, Lisa Niemi — with whom she’s still friends — was aware to the relationship before now.

Heidi Klum says she’s “very happy” dating her former bodyguard, Martin Kirsten, in the wake of her split from husband Seal. In fact, the new romance has even influenced her movie-viewing habits, as the “Project Runway” host finally sat down to watch “the Bodyguard,” she tells Ellen DeGeneres in an interview. “I’ve actually watched the movie since then. I had to,” she says. “That’s going to be my Halloween costume next year.”

Jack Nicholson
isn’t a fan of his reputation as a Hollywood Lothario. “I am an extreme person. If someone says, ‘Jack, you are a womanizer,’ I don’t deny it. But the life of a gigolo always ends badly,” the 75-year-old Oscar-winner tells the Sun. “That is one of the reasons I feel uncomfortable about all that ‘sex legend’ stuff.” Nicholson also says that reports of his conquests — he’s rumored to have bedded more than 2,000 women — are greatly exaggerated.
