Wednesday gossip roundup: Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson living in separate homes
While Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson may have reunited, they may start off their reconciliation living apart. Stewart has reportedly purchased a $2.1 million house just a mile and a half from the Los Feliz home she shared with Pattinson prior to this summer’s scandal over her infidelity, according to Hollyscoop. Stewart apparently bought the four-bedroom Spanish-style property in August, though, when the couple seemed to be on the outs, so maybe now that they’re back together she won’t be using it much.
Halle Berry is opening up about how she first fell for fiancé Olivier Martinez. “When I first met Olivier, there wasn’t the initial ‘I’m in love!’ It was something that grew more gradually—and it feels more real because of that,” she tells In Style magazine. “He’s silly, a clown, and very much the life of the party, which is good for someone like me. Danny Downer … been there, done that. Now I like Louie Lightfoot!”
On-again, off-again couple John Mayer and Katy Perry appear to be on again — or at least they did this week in New York, where Mayer celebrated his 35th birthday at a quiet dinner with friends and family, according to Us Weekly. Perry was by his side the entire night. “It was a very tame and civil,” a source says. “They talked and laughed but nobody got crazy. Everyone looked like they were having fun. John seemed happy.
Johnny Depp is launching a new career as a bookseller, starting the publishing imprint Inifinitum Nihil under HarperCollins, according to E! News. And Depp is apparently taking his new job very, very seriously, if his statement is any indication: “I pledge, on behalf of Infinitum Nihil, that we will do our best to deliver publications worthy of peoples’ time, of peoples’ concern. Publications that might ordinarily never have breached the parapet,” Depp says. “For this dream realized, we would like to salute HarperCollins for their faith in us and look forward to a long and fruitful relationship together.” The company — which shares a name with Depp’s production company — will start off with two titles, a novel by folk singer Woodie Guthrie and a Bob Dylan biography by David Brinkley.
“Snow White and the Huntsman” director Rupert Sanders — who made a name for himself by having an affair with star Kristen Stewart earlier this year — has reportedly booked his first directing gig since the scandal, according to Deadline. Sanders is set to take on “the Juliet,” based on a science-fiction short story by Alfred Bester. Sanders is also allegedly in talks to direct a “Van Helsing” reboot starring Tom Cruise.
