Thursday gossip roundup: A Hulk Hogan sex tape?

Hulk Hogan performs onstage at Comedy Central's Roast of David Hasselhoff.

Sienna Miller has confirmed to Vogue UK that she’s with child. “I’m in my second trimester, so I’m I-can-talk-about-it-pregnant, even though I’m under strict instructions not to say anything,” the actress says. “I’m feeling fine. It’s all progressing very nicely and it’s very exciting.” So why stay mum? Miller — who has been campaigning for privacy rights after being stalked by paparazzi and getting caught up in the News of the World phone-hacking scandal — says she doesn’t want to contradict herself. “[Speaking about my pregnancy] would completely defeat the point of everything I’ve tried to achieve in the last eight years,” she explains.

Despite claims last month that she’s happily single, Amanda Seyfried has reportedly been dating Josh Hartnett since January, according to Us Weekly. The pair were set up by a mutual friend, sources say, and for now the relationship has been fairly casual. “Josh likes to keep things low-key, so they’ve just been hanging out,” a source says.

Sandra Bullock and director Brett Ratner want to make it clear that they are not hooking up, no matter what the tabloids say. In Touch reported that the pair had been seeing each other for weeks before offering up some public displays of affection at an Oscars party. But Bullock and Ratner beg to differ: “We think that it’s incredibly sad that in these times, this magazine would resort to complete fabrication, solely for financial gain,” the two say in a joint statement. “There is not a shred of accuracy in their story. We have not seen nor spoken to each for over a decade. We both had a great time after the Oscars, just not with each other.”

Jessica Simpson says she found out she was pregnant thanks to some intuition right before a planned day of binge-drinking. “We were going to have an all-day drinking binge,” Simpson tells Elle magazine. “Going to ride our bikes, hang out, do naughty things. But I started feeling this overwhelming guilt. Why would I feel guilt at the idea of going out and having cocktails with my friends?” Somehow she knew to take a pregnancy test, which obviously put the drinking marathon on hold. “I’m a free-spirited girl, but giving up my scotch? My Macallan 18? That was hard for me,” Simpson says of being pregnant.

While her younger sister, Elizabeth Olsen, is making a name for herself as an actress, former child star Ashley Olsen says she’s done with on-camera work. “[Mary Kate and I] worked non-stop until we were 18. Then we decided to take a break and go to school — and that was when we decided to question whether we would carry on in entertainment,” Ashley tells Elle UK. “It was time to step behind the process. I wanted to work on other things. It doesn’t mean I’m not interested in Hollywood, I like the way it operates and the people who are involved and the sense of possibility. But if I ever do get back in, it’s not going to be as an actress.” There’s no word if twin sister Mary Kate feels the same way.

The latest celebrity to have to deal with the leak of a purported personal sex tape? Hulk Hogan. A video allegedly featuring the wrestling veteran and an unidentified woman — though not his ex-wife or his current wife — is reportedly being shopped around to adult film outlets, according to TMZ. A lawyer for Hogan (whose real name is Terry Bolea) says his client is mortified. “Terry Bollea is appalled at the unauthorized release of a secretly filmed video,” attorney David Houstan says. “He neither approved of the filming nor the release of the same. It is clearly an outrageous invasion of privacy and breach of trust if it is genuine. We will take all necessary steps to enforce both civil and criminal liability.”
