Sacha Baron Cohen nearly became the victim of his own antics today in Cannes. The actor almost fell off a camel during a publicity stunt to promote his movie, The Dictator, while at the Cannes Film Festival. The actor had planned to ride a camel through the city's famous Croisette promenade, but nearly tumbled backward when he tried to mount the animal. Luckily, he was caught and continued with his camel ride through Cannes.
Nick Stahl, best known for playing John Connor in Terminator 3, has been reported missing, says TMZ. On Monday, the actor's wife, Rose Stahl, filed a missing person's report with the L.A.P.D. saying she had last seen him May 9th. The actor has been separated from his wife since January, and in February she filed court papers expressing that she was concerned that Nick was using drugs and that she wanted visitations with his daughter to be supervised. His wife is now reportedly concerned that drug use has something to do with the actor's disappearance.
Singer/dancer/actress Jennifer Lopez was just named the number 1 celebrity on Forbes' list of 100 Most Powerful Celebrities. She was followed by Oprah Winfrey in the number two spot, with Justin Bieber, Rihanna, and Lady Gaga rounding out the top 5.
In other J.Lo news, she was awfully coy about whether she would return to American Idol next season in a recent interview with Ellen DeGeneres. Lopez said, "I really do enjoy it" but continued that she also misses "doing other things. It really does lock you down." Sounds like someone is in contract negotiations. Also, it's interesting to note that in 2009, before Lopez was an idol judge, she didn't even make the Forbes 100 list. Just sayin'.
In yet more Idol-related news, Ryan Seacrest just spent around $49 million for DeGeneres' Beverly Hills estate. The Idol host's new digs include a 9,200-square-foot main house, as well as 3 guest houses on 2.87 acres.
