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

Angelina Jolie has finally joined the social networking site Twitter, it has emerged.

According to a source, one won't hear any 140-character musings from the actress as she's locked her account right now.

Jolie apparently has no followers and isn't following anyone on the site.

'Jolie had her people obtain the account for her so no one else could have that username,' UsMagazine.com quoted a source as saying.

'There was actually someone else using @AngelinaJolie but Angelina requested the account suspended and took it over.'

The insider adds that the Salt star, 35, might become active on the microblogging site "later this year."

'If she uses it, it will be for charity-related items or sharing links,' the source added.

Rumours are rife that Brad Pitt is in New Zealand, while the Indian restaurant in Wellington, where he reportedly ate is not sure if it served the Hollywood superstar.

According to an Internet report, Pitt dined with New Zealand film director Sir Peter Jackson on Sunday night at Indian restaurant Tulsi in Miramar.

Mukesh Bartwal, who was managing at the restaurant, said it was only after a man wearing a cap left the restaurant with two or three other diners that another customer told him it was Pitt.

Bartwal revealed that he and the other staff, not being followers of Hollywood movies, would not have instantly recognised Pitt.

And it is believed that the person thought to be Pitt came in to dine with his companions about 6.30pm -- on a very quiet night in the restaurant.

And the group ordered garlic naans, chicken tikka and butter chicken from the menu.

Bartwal said he would recognise Sir Peter, and did not see him at the restaurant.

Meanwhile Pitt's representatives in the United States have not yet commented on the rumours.

Wingnut Films, which speaks for Sir Peter, refused to comment on the report that he met with Pitt in New Zealand.

Singer Wyclef Jean is taking a drift from his musical career and is considering running for president of his native Haiti.

The crooner, 37, has said that talk of an official campaign is still premature, but the country's locals had "drafted" him into politics.

'I can't sing forever,' US Magazine quoted Jean as telling CNN.

Jean has already filled out the necessary paperwork in case he decided to move forward with a campaign, according to Canadian newspaper Le Droit.

A statement released by his foundation, Yele Haiti, read, 'Wyclef's commitment to his homeland and its youth is boundless, and he will remain its greatest supporter regardless of whether he is part of the government moving forward. At this time, Wyclef Jean has not announced his intent to run for Haitian president. If and when a decision is made, media will be alerted immediately.'

Jean has always been an outspoken advocate for the Caribbean country in which he was born, and was one of the first celebs to travel to Haiti after the devastating earthquake in January.

Haiti's current president, Rene Preval, has reached his term limits and cannot run a third time.

Elections will be held November 28.

Paris Hilton's publicist has dismissed reports that the beauty was giving a Nazi salute while partying aboard a luxury yacht in St Tropez, France.

The hotel heiress is seen wearing a military-style hat, holding her finger under her nose and pointing her hand upward in a Heil Hitler-like salute in the photograph.

The 29-year-old came under fire from fans shortly after the picture emerged online, but her spokesman has adamantly denied that the Simple Life star was simulating a salute, explaining that the photo was merely taken out of context.

'Paris was dancing and having fun with her arm up in the air as she always dances like that and was scratching [her] face when a photo was taken,' the New York Daily News quoted Hilton's representative as telling the Daily Mail.

'The hat was not a Communist hat, it's a military style hat from a club. Half of her family is Jewish and many of her friends are as well,' Hilton's representative added.
