Mr. Big has finally taken the plunge. Sex and the City's Chris Noth married his longtime fiancée, Tara Wilson, earlier this month. Like Carrie and Big, the couple had known each other for 10 years before tying the knot. Noth and Wilson had been engaged since 2009 and they're already the parents of a 4-year-old son.
The PRC has some problems with Titanic in 3-D. Apparently, the scene in which Rose (Kate Winslet) takes off her top to pose for Jack's drawing has been censored in China, and only shows the actress from the neck up. The Chinese State Administration of Radio, Film, and Television has stated that the scene was censored "out of consideration of building a harmonious ethical social environment." Well if that was the reason, one would think they would have edited out that overplayed, over-the-top, overwrought song rather than Winslet's breasts.
It's official: Marc Anthony has filed for divorce from Jennifer Lopez. Unsurprisingly, "irreconcilable differences" were stated as the reason for the divorce on the papers filed April 9. He is asking for joint custody of the couple's 4-year-old twins.
Guns N' Roses front man Axl Rose declined an induction to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame via a long, rambling, self-aggrandizing, and occasionally coherent open letter released yesterday. The induction ceremony is planned for Saturday in Cleveland, but Rose won't be there due to the fact that the "Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony doesn't appear to be somewhere (he's) actually wanted or respected." In addition, Rose wants to "let sleeping dogs lie or lying dogs sleep or whatever" and wants to let fans know that "maybe if it were you it'd be different. Maybe you'd do it for this reason or that. Peace, whatever."
In other angry (though far more intelligible) letter news, Mel Gibson and screenwriter Joe Eszterhas are publicly feuding after The Wrap obtained a 9-page letter Eszterhas sent to Gibson. The two had planned to collaborate on The Maccabbees, a movie that they had envisioned as a sort of "Jewish Braveheart." The collaboration apparently did not go well. The letter accuses Gibson of regularly making anti-Semitic slurs, dismissing the holocaust, and hating Jews. It also recounts instances of Gibson making violent threats against his ex-girlfriend, Oksana Gregorieva, as well as a description of a dinner party that ended up with Gibson screaming at a priest. Mel Gibson responded by writing an open letter to Eszterhas. Gibson stated that Eszterhas's letter was full of fabrications and that the real reason the collaboration failed was because of the poor quality of the script the screenwriter delivered.
