Get your lowdown on what's happening in the world of Hollywood, right here!

Moss, who famously became known as 'Cocaine Kate' after being captured on camera allegedly snorting cocaine in 2005, is now starring in a film to show she's an addict of quite a different nature.

The 37-year-old supermodel stars in a glamorous new promo video for Dior's new Addict lipstick, reports the Daily Mail.

Directed by Jonas Ackerlund and soundtracked by Duran Duran, the film sees Moss in her lingerie cavorting around a Paris apartment that's been somewhat trashed as she gets ready to go out.

She puts on her make-up -- including the lipstick in question -- and kisses the mirror before diving into a chauffeur-driven vintage car to put on her stockings in a rather provocative manner.

In an intriguing twist, the model also speaks a few lines -- her voice is rarely heard for more than a few words on adverts.

There are snatches of conversation, like, 'I'll see you later after the show. What are you doing?' before directly addressing the camera with, 'There was this party last night.'

After putting on another slick of pale pink lipstick in the back of the car, the mother-of-one also intones, 'A girl can't make an entrance without her lipstick.'

The stunning star is then seeing a gauntlet of cameras as she gets out of the car and makes her way into a building and takes her place on the front row for a Dior runway show.

 Moss then delivers the pay-off line, 'Dior Addict - be iconic.'

The film and accompanying photographs for the advertising campaign were shot last year around the Dior pret-a-porter Spring/Summer 2011 shows.

Hollywood actor Mel Gibson turned himself in at a South California police station and has been booked on battery charges for allegedly assaulting ex Oksana Grigorieva.

The star went to the El Segundo Police Department in Southern California to have his mug shot taken and fingerprints recorded.

According to the 55-year-old actor's booking sheet, he surrendered at 9.30pm with bail set at 12,400 pounds.

'He was here for a very short time. He was very pleasant. This is just an old case that the judge wanted him to get fingerprinted for. It isn't anything new. We did it real quick and he was out,' the Sun quoted Sergeant Dean Howard, an officer who dealt with Gibson when he was booked in at the police station, as saying.

Last week, the star was spared jail after pleading no contest to a misdemeanour charge of battery on a spouse or cohabitant.

He was sentenced to 36 months informal probation along with 16 hours community service.

He was also fined a total of 350 pounds and ordered to undertake a year's domestic violence counselling, along with a year of mental health counselling, with the therapist he has been seeing since January.

Cuban-American actress Eva Mendes has reportedly been named the new face of Thierry Mugler's Angel perfume.

According to Women's Wear Daily, the Spanish beauty has replaced Naomi Watts, who was ditched from the campaign for not being 'sultry' enough, reports the Daily Telegraph.

'While Naomi Watts' ethereal beauty embodied the angelic aspect of the fragrance, Thierry Mugler chose to reignite the enticing and explosive dimensions of the fragrance with the sultry Mendes,' the company said in a statement.

'Though her obviously flawless physical beauty is in perfect harmony with the artist's aesthetic canon, Ms Mendes mesmerised Mugler with her independence, determination and humor,' the statement added.

The 37-year-old actress has also appeared in advertisements for Calvin Klein since 2008.
