Jodie Foster’s coming out…in support of her longtime friend Mel Gibson. Foster, who directed Gibson in the long-delayed film The Beaver, teared up while talking about the troubled actor—“God, I love that man,” she said. “He’s so incredibly loving and sensitive, he really is.” “He’s not saintly, and he’s got a big mouth, and he’ll do gross things your nephew would do. But I knew the minute I met him that I would love him the rest of my life.” Unlike Gibson, Foster’s nephew probably avoids being booked on a misdemeanor battery and three years of probation.
Look for this to be mocked on an upcoming episode of 30 Rock. Tina Fey is on the cover of this month’s InStyle magazine (hooray!) but she’s nearly unrecognizable. With her face scrubbed of all flaws and her body Photoshopped into an impossibly small waist, Fey’s the latest star to come under the (fake) knife. The rest of the photo shoot hasn’t been revealed, but they couldn’t be worse than the cover.
On the other hand, Anna Wintour might be asking for a little Photoshop help for herself in the near future. Vogue’s editor has revealed a tiny, gluttonous secret: she loves potpie. The highly fattening dish is an inexplicable new favorite of people in the fashion world, Wintour included. Her personal chef says she likes it because it’s “quick to serve and moves things right along.” Surely they must all be eating one bite, or two, as the whole dish clocks in at hundreds of calories.
We’re always up for a good feud, but Bon Jovi’s timing is a little off with this one. The legendary frontman said Apple founder Steve Jobs is responsible for “killing” the music business with iTunes, and that he misses the “magical time” kids used to have basing their purchases on an album cover, putting their record on (or whatever) and becoming immersed in music. Bon-Bon has a point, but it’s one that goes over like a lead balloon when iPads are being snatched up in droves and Jobs is walking around looking very ill.
Miley Cyrus is breathing a sigh of relief. No, she hasn’t put down her salvia bong, but her parents have called off their divorce. Billy Ray Cyrus, continuing his media tour de force talking about his personal life, said he’s going to try to patch up his 17-year-long marriage. And the Cyruses lived happily ever after…until the next scandal.
