Monday gossip roundup: Jesse James wants everyone to stop being mean to him
Jessica Biel is a bride-to-be on a mission. The actress, who is reportedly engaged to Justin Timberlake, embarked on a seven-hour shopping spree in Paris Friday — with stops at at least two major bridal designers, according to People magazine. Biel’s assistant, at her side the whole time, was reportedly toting a massive wedding planning book. Sources have speculated that the couple will tie the knot this summer.
Katy Perry is fed up with fame, according to Teen Vogue. “I’m tired of being famous already! But I’m not tired of creating. Fame is, I think, just a disgusting by-product of what I do,” Perry tells the magazine. “It’s a delicate creature — a wild animal of sorts. It can love you, and then it can attack you. But really, I stopped focusing on what other people think a while ago.”
When it comes to a boyfriend’s birthday, Jennifer Lopez goes big. The singer reportedly gifted beau Casper Smart with a custom White Dodge pickup truck for his 25th birthday, according to People magazine. Lopez “knew that Casper really wanted a truck, and Casper was very excited about the generous gift,” a source says. “Casper was so excited about his new truck that he decided to drive it to dinner. She was smiling about Casper’s excitement.”
Nicole Kidman is reportedly the front-runner to play Grace Kelly in an indie film about the actress-turned-princess’ early days as a member of the royal family in Monaco, according to the Hollywood Reporter. The film, “Grace of Monaco,” will be directed by “La Vie en Rose” helmer Olivier Dahan. “Nearly every top actress in Hollywood chased the demanding yet coveted role,” a source says, though no official deals have been made.
Michael J. Fox didn’t have high hopes for “Back to the Future,” the 1985 film that made him a star, since pulling double duty on his sitcom, “Family Ties,” while filming the movie left him near exhaustion. “I ended up getting about three hours of sleep a night, because they had to get the movie out that summer,” he tells Parade. “[While we were making it], I thought I sucked in it. I really, truly thought I was terrible. So many times I was practically unconscious because I was so tired.”
As far as Jesse James, it’s about time everyone forgave him for cheating on Sandra Bullock. “I think I’ve paid the price and then some, you know? I don’t know anybody anywhere that’s had to endure what I had to endure for basically infidelity,” the reality TV star tells Yahoo’s omg! blog. “I stood up like a man and admitted my wrongs and what I did and all that did is make every s— tabloid everywhere across the world come after me even harder. I’m strong. I can take it.”
