The Word: Is Demi Moore into women?

Demi Moore

Ashton Kutcher’s alleged infidelity may have been the last straw in his marriage to Demi Moore, but sources tell Star magazine that the pair’s “open marriage” had been a strain for years. “Everyone in Hollywood knows about their arrangement, but they’ve managed to keep it a secret from the general public,” a source says. “Demi is attracted to women just as much as men, so she didn’t always get all she needed from Ashton. She was cool with Ashton having flirtatious relationships, too. Somehow they made it work all these years. Both of them were respectful of each other. It was a lot of fun for them.”

But Kutcher’s pair of cheating scandals — including his reported tryst with a young woman during his and Moore’s sixth anniversary — were apparently too much for Moore, who filed for divorce late last week.

What PR person leaked that crazy information? Because, yeah, everyone knows so many marriages are broken up because the wife is hot, likes threesomes and is “cool” with outside arrangements. What horror that must have been for Kutcher! How he survived, I have no idea.

Biel plays mind tricks with us

Jessica Biel admits she keeps losing out on film roles to Anne Hathaway, with two recent instances that were particularly hard to take. First, there’s the role of Catwoman in Christopher Nolan’s “The Dark Knight Rises,” for which Biel hoped to audition. “[That was] another one that got away. I was gutted,” she tells Elle. But that’s not all: “I felt terrified when I auditioned for ‘Les Miserables,’ the movie that Tom Hooper is doing,” she says. “I was terrified to sing in front of him. I auditioned for Fantine and I sang ‘I Dreamed a Dream.’ I didn’t get it. And I would have loved it.” Hathaway eventually won that role as well.

This is strange. Why in the world would Biel admit publicly that she is always losing out on roles — unless she wants people to think she’s actually the same caliber as Anne Hathaway? Which, no, she’s not. I might give her Katherine Heigl-level, but even that’s a stretch.
