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


Oscar-winning actress Nicole Kidman welcomed a baby girl via a surrogate mother last month.


The 43-year-old star and her husband, country singer Keith Urban, are already parents to daughter Sunday Rose, 2.


On Monday, the couple proudly declared the arrival of another little girl, Faith Margaret Kidman Urban.


She was born near the couple's Nashville home at the Centennial Women's Hospital on December 28.


Although the baby was carried by a surrogate, Kidman and Urban are her biological parents.


'Our family is truly blessed and just so thankful to have been given the gift of baby Faith Margaret,' the Daily Mail quoted her as saying.


'No words can adequately convey the incredible gratitude that we feel for everyone who was so supportive throughout this process, in particular our gestational carrier,; she added.

No ban on awards host Ricky Gervais

Prev     Next


British comedian Ricky Gervais' representative has said that the star has not been banned from hosting future award shows despite him dishing out insults at the Golden Globe Awards 2011.


Gervais, 49, had disappeared for sometime during the second half of the show, and rumours started that the Hollywood Foreign Press had chastised him for insulting many A-listers in the audience.


But his rep said the rumours were "utter rubbish" fuelled by "Twitter speculation", and Gervais himself reported the mood backstage was "great" and his extended time off-camera was nothing unusual.


'I did every single introduction I was meant to. There just happened to be a long gap,' the New York Daily News quoted Gervais as writing in an email.


'This is because I was allowed to choose who I would introduce in advance. I obviously chose presenters who I had the best jokes for. (And who I knew had a good sense of humour).


'Everyone took it well and the atmosphere backstage and at the after show was great,' he wrote.


A rep for HFPA confirmed that there was no truth to the rumours that they had chastised the host during the show and that his time on stage "was not altered one iota".

Anne Hathaway to appear on Glee?

Anne Hathaway may soon appear on hit TV series Glee.


The show's creator Ryan Murphy approached the Devil Wears Prada star and offered her a role in the show at the Golden Globes on Sunday.


The actress is a longtime fan of the all-singing, all-dancing programme, and last year revealed she wants to play a long lost relative of Chris Colfer's gay character Kurt Hummel.


Hathaway's suggestion has now been accepted by Murphy, who agreed to let the actress appear in the show when he saw her at the award ceremony in Los Angele.


'It is true. She said it in the press that she wants to play Chris Colfer's lesbian aunt. She walked by our table (at the Golden Globes) and we have a mutual friend and I said, ''Do you really want to do it?'' And she said, ''I do.'' And I said, ''OK, we're gonna do it,'' the Daily Star quoted him as telling Access Hollywood.


'I think we'll do it probably in a month and a half or so... I have to talk to Anne about what she wants to sing. I'm sure she has ideas,' he added.
