Tuesday gossip roundup: Bradley Cooper is not going to be Lance Armstrong

Bradley Cooper will not be Lance Armstrong.

Despite telling BBC News earlier this month that he’d be up for starring in a J.J. Abrams-produced biopic on disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong, Oscar-nominee Bradley Cooper insists he’s not interested. “Oh my God, that’s so nuts,” Cooper tells Access Hollywood, adding that he “had no idea what [the interviewer] was talking about” during the red carpet chat. “I didn’t even know that J.J. has the rights. I had no idea.”

Victoria Beckham
is enjoying success in the fashion world, but she still feels like she has to prove herself. “I don’t have to work, I need to work. All these [other fashion designers], they’re not just been given anything. They’ve worked hard. And I’ve never been given anything either,” she tells Elle UK. “You’ve got to trust people. And because I am a control freak, sometimes that’s difficult for me, because I want to micro-manage absolutely everything. I can’t hand over. But I’m trying to do that more.”

Channing Tatum
is terrified of his impending parenthood, but in a good way. “I mean, I don’t think there’s one thing that doesn’t terrify you, but in the most unbelievably beautiful way,” the 32-year-old Magic Mike star tells E! News. “Someone said it’s really like watching your heart jump out of your body and run around, and I think that can possibly be the coolest thing that I’ve heard of.” As for how wife Jenna Dewan-Tatum is handling pregnancy? “I mean, women just sort of turn into like animals in this sort of stage that they’re in,” he says. “She’s a complete animal right now. You can ask her, but in the most beautiful like humanistic animal-y way. You know she works out all of the time, eats right, impeccably right. She’s just a machine.”

January Jones is paying the price for being a chameleon. “I have been every color and now my hair is falling out in clumps,” the “X-Men: First Class” and “Mad Men” star tells Grazia Daily. “I’ve been blonde, red with extensions for this film, then blonde, then black, and now blonde again. I’m going to have to shave it off and wear a wig.” And what color might that wig be? Which color feels most natural for Jones? “I like it all colors. It makes you feel different according to what color it is, but I prefer to be blonde,” she says. “My [16-month-old] son recognizes me in photos when I am blonde. He says, ‘Mama.’”

Fellow Australian actresses Nicole Kidman and Naomi Watts are longtime pals, but they’ve only co-starred once — in 1991′s “Flirting” — and they’d love to add at least one more entry to their shared resume. “We’ve been looking for a long time now. But both of us have picky tastes. It has to be the right piece,” Watts tells E! News, while Kidman makes the situation sound a bit more dire: “We’re looking,” the “Paperboy” star says. “Somebody think of something, please!”
