Keith Olbermann's sudden resignation from MSNBC was apparently in the works for months after "years of behind-the-scenes tension, conflicts and near terminations," according to the New York Times. Olbermann negotiated an even sweeter exit package than previously reported, netting a $7M+ payout and only having to stay off the air for 4 1/2 months.
PR hound/director Kevin Smith is drumming up interest in his latest pic, Red State, by accusing Cop Out star Bruce Willis of being "f***ing soul-crushing" to work with and blaming him in part for the movie's lousy box office performance, saying, "I had no f***ing help from this dude whatsoever" in promoting the film.
Jennifer Aniston got "Worst Actress" Razzie nods for her performances in The Bounty Hunter and The Switch, but Jessica Alba and George Lopez lead with three Worst Supporting Actor/Actress nominations. Alba was recognized for awfulness in The Killer Inside Me, Little Fockers, and Valentine's Day, and Lopez for Marmaduke, The Spy Next Door, and Valentine's Day. See the full list of Razzie nominations.
Given a chance to take off his shirt, Matthew McConaughey will definitely take it, as he did while on a run in Malibu over the weekend. Also in Malibu over the weekend, and nearly as shirtless, was Lindsay Lohan in a cleavage-bearing top as she shopped with pal Patrick Aufdenkamp.
Harrison Ford and Calista Flockhart have put their 9,000-square-foot Chelsea loft up for sale for $16M. Apparently upkeep is a pain, running between $13K-$15K a month, and they need the dough to purchase a $12.5 million estate they have their eye on in Mandeville Canyon, where Steven Spielberg lives.
