Thursday gossip roundup: Nicole Kidman doesn’t think urine is all that shocking

Lindsay Lohan has reportedly found a new way to help pay off her hefty debts. Her father, Michael Lohan, and other sources claim that the troubled actress is making money working as a high-class escort, according to Star magazine. “She is getting paid to date rich men,” Michael says, putting the blame squarely on his ex-wife, Dina Lohan. “Dina is pimping her out. It’s disgusting.” But so far there are no allegations of Lindsay providing any services more intimate than acting as arm candy. “The dates last for days, and the guys pay for everything — hotel, travel costs, food, whatever — as well as jewelry and other gifts,” another source tells the magazine.

Nicole Kidman has been getting plenty of attention for her Golden Globe-nominated role in “the Paperboy” thanks to an infamous scene in which she urinates on Zach Efron. But Kidman doesn’t get what the big deal is. “I just don’t find urination shocking. I think I peed in the beginning of ‘Eyes Wide Shut,’ too. But then, I don’t find a lot of things shocking. Violence is a lot more shocking than sex — sex is primal,” she tells the Hollywood Reporter. “I felt shy singing in ‘Moulin Rouge,’ but peeing — no, not shy.”

Jennifer Lopez‘s career is doing just fine, but there’s at least one item she still has her heart set on: an Oscar. “I think everybody that has ever taken acting seriously would love to be recognized in that way,” Lopez tells E! News. “Of course! Why not?” She’s even good about keeping her acceptance speech up to date, should the need for it arise. “It changes every so often over the years,” Lopez says. “Different people, different things.”

Russell Crowe has taken to Twitter to refute a New York Post story that he and burlesque star Dita Von Teese are an item. The paper reported that the pair had enjoyed “a romantic couple’s massage” at the Four Seasons hotel in New York last month and have been getting flirty. “Dita Von Teese is brave, smart, sweet and elegant. She is a friend of mine. Who wouldn’t want friends like that? Friends, not lovers,” Crowe tweeted.
