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

The photographer who took six nude photos of actress Eva Mendes says the pictures have gone missing.

Lyndon Chubbuck claims that pictures of the star were taken at some point between being transported from the printer to an art show last weekend, reports the Sydney Morning Herald.


He was preparing the images to go on display at an art event in Los Angeles' Supperclub later this week.


Chubbuck is planning to file a police report over the missing photos, but insists it's merely for insurance purposes because he claims, "The cops aren't really going to put a mad hunt out for my Eva photos".


The pictures of Mendes will still be able to go on display as planned as Chubbuck arranged for reprints to be made, reports TMZ.

Singer Rihanna and actor Ryan Phillippe have secretly met up on numerous occasions over the course of the last few months, it has emerged.

'They initially hooked up when things were strained with Matt Kemp,' the Daily Mail quoted a source as telling America's Us Weekly.


According to the report, the couple has been top secret about their relationship by pretending they aren't even interested in each other.


At that recent pre-Grammy event in Los Angeles, onlookers claimed 36-year-old Cruel Intentions star approached the 23-year-old only to be rejected.


While Barbados-born singer apparently spurned his advances, it has been claimed they actually spent the night together that evening.

Tom Hardy has revealed that he's beefing up to play Batman's nemesis in Christopher Nolan's upcoming The Dark Knight Rises.


The star is set to play violent villain Bane opposite Christian Bale's Caped Crusader in the next installment of the superhero franchise, reports the Daily Star.


However, he'll have to gain more than 20 pounds (nine kilograms) before filming begins in May (11).


He tells UK talk show host Alan Carr, "I'm going to need to bulk up a lot for it. That's a lot of weight to put on and I've got to start shooting in May.


"I've got to go up to about 13 and a half or 14 stone. I'm 12 and a bit now, so I've got under three months to do that. Fat -- a lot of fat. And trickery."

Pop singer Mariah Carey is reportedly spending a whopping 1.3 million dollars on a luxury nursery for her unborn twins.


The diva and her husband Nick Cannon are said to be converting an entire wing of their Beverly Hills mansion into an over-the-top luxe apartment for their bubs.


"Mariah wanted 18-carat gold trim, with ivory walls, soft furnishings and walk-in wardrobes full of Petit Tresor designer clothes," quoted a friend as telling Now magazine.


"There's a top-of-the-range sound system and they'll each have diamond-encrusted iPods and a flatscreen TV that comes down from the ceiling," the friend said.


Adding to the pricey items are the 2,200 dollars cots for tots along with a 2,880 dollars change table.


All of that is comparatively cheap given the Butterfly singer is reported to have splashed out on a 1 million dollar red-crushed velvet, 24-carat gold and onyx sofa that was used for Michael Jackson's shows.
