Scarlett JohanssonJailbait-turned-ethereal beauty Scarlett Johansson found herself in a fender bender last week after attempting to flee scandal-crazed “stalkerazzi.” Miss Johansson, the star of “Girl With a Pearl Earring” and this summer’s requisite box office dud, “The Island,” crashed her Mercedes into a family-laden vehicle after being followed into a Disney Land parking lot. No one was injured. Her publicist, Marcel Pariseau, offered these words:

[Johansson] hopes that state legislators will enact a law “to avoid these situations,” Pariseau said.

“She’s frustrated,” he said. “She can’t deal with it anymore.”

It’s nice to know that some celebrities would rather rely on the legal system than gun violence.

Jude Law & Sienna Miller
It’s so over

Regarding the demise of the Law/Miller relationship: The latest confirmation comes by way of This is London. In a bid for journalistic integrity, the news outlet cites an unnamed “source close to Law” for their intimate insider information:

‘They have tried to make a go of it, but it comes down to the fact that Sienna can’t trust Jude,’ said a source close to Law. ‘She really thought their relationship was something special and was completely in love with Jude. But Sienna can’t forgive Jude’s betrayal – particularly as at the same time he slept with the nanny he was trying to convince her to have a child with him. Jude has done everything he possibly can to try to win her back.

He even spent several hours with her mother in a bid to get her to try to change Sienna’s mind.’

Perhaps Sienna and Jude should be less distressed about the status of their relationship and more concerned with the government satellites keeping track of their every move and emotion. We’ve got three words for the privacy-impoverished former couple: aluminum foil helmets.

Courtney Loves Drugs

August 20, 2005

Courtney Love
I’ve been a bad girl

Courtney Love, the unwitting poster child for the rock-and-roll lifestyle’s drug-infested underbelly, is once again in the spotlight. In a California courtroom Friday, the “rocktress” held back Botox-filled tears and woefully admitted to violating her probation on three separate occasions. She was subsequently ordered by Superior Court Judge Rand Rubin to undergo a 28-day rehabilitation program for the treatment of substance abuse and directed to return to court in September for further sentencing.

Prototypical “gonzo” journalist Hunter S. Thompson is ready for launch. The plan to shoot the late writer’s ashes into the night sky in the form of fireworks is a go, and the spectacularly unconventional display is scheduled for tonight. He wouldn’t have had it any other way.
