Although the 35-year-old actress quashed speculation that she has been offered the role, she was quick to outline that she would be eager to take it on.

'I heard that rumour too -- I don't know where it got started but I love it!' the Daily Mail quoted her telling in a US chat show.

'I've been wanting to wear that outfit my whole life! I'd love to [do it]. That would be such fun! Let's put it out there!' she said.

Kelly Brook, Danny Cipriani item again?

Prev     Next


It seems English model Kelly Brook is back with rugby hunk Danny Cipriani.

The pair, who parted ways earlier this year after Danny was seen flirting with a string of glamorous women, has reportedly reunited for a romantic holiday in the Maldives.

According to onlookers, Kelly, 31, and England star Danny, 23, looked 'cosy' boarding a jet from the Middle East playground of Dubai, reports the Sun.

They landed in Male, capital of the tiny Indian Ocean republic, then caught a private seaplane to one of the more remote islands.

Another holidaymaker, who spotted the couple in Dubai, said: 'Kelly boarded a plane with Danny and a blonde female friend. They were obviously looking forward to spending some Christmassy time together in the sun. Hardly anyone recognised them but they looked really cosy. They were laughing and joking and seemed very happy.'

Uma Thurman's stalker to pay half a million dollars for bail

Prev     Next


A Manhattan judge has ruled that Uma Thurman's loopy stalker must make a hefty bail of half a million dollars or stay behind bars.

Jack Jordan was convicted of harassing the Kill Bill actress for six years.

His lawyer argued that last week's new indictment of his client -- who was convicted in 2008 of stalking the actress for six years -- was unwarranted.

'The indictments are a stretch,' the New York Daily News quoted lawyer Sam Robertsas saying.

Jordan is accused of making two phone calls to Thurman last month -- two years after he was sentenced to probation and ordered to stay away from her.

'We are not talking about a long-term continuing course of conduct,' Roberts said.

Prosecutors begged to differ.

'The defendant was here stalking Uma Thurman for six years,' Assistant DA Michelle Kamisky told Justice Gregory Carro of the actress. 'The defendant is unrelenting in his course of conduct towards Ms Thurman,' Kamisky said.

The judge agreed to set a high bail -- one that Jordan, who has a legal aid attorney, is not expected to make.
