"GyllenSwift" doesn't have a very good ring to it, and neither, apparently, did the Jake Gyllenhaal-Taylor Swift relationship, as the two-month experiment ended late last month. Sources told US Magazine the biggest problem was the 8-year age difference.
John Mellencamp is getting his "cougar" back on, as the 59-year-old rocker has been seen spending a lot of time with 49 -year-old Meg Ryan.
Yesterday the news was that Lindsay Lohan's Betty Ford Clinic catfight "violated probation" and she might be sent back to jail, but no sign of trouble today as Lilo has moved into a posh Venice Beach house located next to her ex-girlfriend, Samantha Ronson.
As Jersey Shore's 3rd season kicks off tomorrow night, the stars are in the news with new addition Deena Nicole Cortese telling Life & Style she's hooked up with three different guys in one night, and Snooki telling Ellen Degeneres that she used to binge drink so heavily she'd black out and end up in garbage cans once a month.
Little Fockers has been called "focking dismal" and possibly "the worst, most vulgar, most pathetic and least funny picture of the year," but the movie's stars are laughing all the way to the bank. The salaries: Ben Stiller and Robert De Niro, $20M; Owen Wilson, $15M; Dustin Hoffman, $7.5M; Barbra Streisand, $7M; Jessica Alba, $3M. Posted 01.05.11 by reelz
The script for the sequel to the 2001 comedy Zoolander is finished, according to Ben Stiller. "We just finished the script and hopefully we're gonna put it all together to shoot it next year," Stiller told HitFix.
Stiller confirmed in March that a Zoolander sequel was in the writing stages. He is working with actor/screenwriter Justin Theroux (who will also direct). At the time, Stiller said the sequel would find dim supermodel Zoolander, and fellow model and best friend Hansel (Owen Wilson) ten years older and attempting to re-establish themselves in the fashion world.
In March, Stiller also said that Will Ferrell's character Mugatu "definitely has to be a part" of a Zoolander sequel, but couldn't confirm Ferrell's return, only revealing that the actor will "hopefully" reprise his role.
Wilson, however, indicated that he would be returning. "I think there's a really good script and I think we're going to do it," said Wilson.
As for other potential cast members, actor Jonah Hill revealed last month that Stiller and Theroux had approached him about playing a role, and said he'd "love to be a part of it." Posted 12.13.10 by Ryan
LauraDern will join the cast of Little Fockers, according to MTV. In this latest installment of the Meet the Parents franchise, she will play the headmistress of an elementary school.
Dern is arguably most famous for her roles in Jurassic Park, October Sky, and several David Lynch movies. She also recently earned a Golden Globe for her performance in HBO's Recount. She joins a cast that already includes Robert De Niro, Ben Stiller, Teri Polo, Owen Wilson, and Jessica Alba.
The plot of the new movie involves the Fockers (Stiller and Polo) and the changes that result after becoming the parents of twins. Director Paul Weitz talked a little about his take on the story:
[It's] about no matter how you've moved ahead in your life, there's still anxiety and insecurity around the corner for you.
Little Fockers is currently scheduled for a July 30, 2010 release. Posted 10.20.09 by reelz
Ben Stiller returns as Larry Daley, the bumbling-but-loveable night security guard at the Museum of Natural History from Night at the Museum. This time around, Daley has given up his night job to become an inventor. But, when his diminutive friends are shipped off to the Smithsonian Institution, it's Daley to the rescue!
Shawn Levy produces and directs Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian, with Owen Wilson and Robin Williams reprising their roles as Jedediah and Teddy Roosevelt, respectively. The film also stars Amy Adams as Amelia Earhart, Hank Azaria as Pharaoh Kahmunrah, and Christopher Guest as Ivan the Terrible.
Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian is the first movie ever granted permission to film in the Smithsonian complex. In addition to the all-star cast, there are famous paintings, statues, historical figures, and pop-culture icons galore -- from August Rodin's The Thinker to Star Wars' Darth Vader.

Whether it's needed or not, it looks like there's going to be a follow-up to Meet the Fockers, which as you'll recall was the sequel to Meet the Parents, a movie that was far better than its sequel and likely better that this future one too.
Little Fockers will presumably be about the Fockers' children. Jay Roach, who directed the first two movies, will not direct this one as he's busy with Dinner for Schmucks. John Hamburg, a Ben Stiller collaborator who did drafts on both Meet the Parents and Meet the Fockers, is at work on a draft of Little Fockers. A number of candidates are said to be in the running to direct, including Paul Weitz (In Good Company), David Wain (Wet Hot American Summer), and Peyton Reed (Yes Man).
Owen Wilson, who had a small role in the first two movies, could have a bigger one in this one, which is typically a good thing. Posted 02.20.09 by reelz
