Brad Pitt: “In this holiday season, many of us take for granted that we are surrounded by loving family members. The poor outcomes for foster children indicate that we must do a much better job of supporting them.”
Brad and Angelina have always been generous when it came to helping the needy. They have extra love for kids as we all know. The couple decided to put a smile on little children’s faces this Christmas as they donated a gift of $100,000 to support two American SOS Children’s Villages for Christmas.
Jolie said “We have seen first-hand the remarkable job SOS does to raise orphaned and abandoned children and keep families together. No one ‘ages out’ of an SOS Village: vocational training, advanced education, living assistance and moral support are there forever.”
CEO Heather Paul stated, “The Jolie-Pitt Foundation has been a strong and loyal supporter of SOS Children’s Villages around the world. We are deeply grateful that this year this couple has included in their generosity our villages in Illinois and Florida and our 300 children who call SOS ‘home.’”
The couple has always shown great love for helpless children, be it their multiple adoptions or be it $100,000 to celebrate Christmas.

Sarah Jessica Parker truly speaks her mind and considers herself like any other working mother when she says that would have loved to stay back at home as her kids were young but her work commitments forced her to step out of home. But she accpets it as one of the usual challenges of life. This was revealed when he denied the allegations that she was an “overworked Mom.”
“No, I never said that, sadly, no,” the Herald Sun quoted Parker as saying.
“What I was trying to say was you can’t really plan the timing of the birth of a child and if I had any control over things like the schedule for Sex and the City I would have loved to have pushed it back.
It is quite understandable from the above statement that Jessica is a true professional, who tries to be a perfect mother. But sometimes the time and space does not provide the opportunity to carry on with both the things. Striking balance between the two should be the motto in Jessica’s life.
Sarah Jessica Parker is an American film, television and theatre actress, and producer. She is best known for her leading role as Carrie Bradshaw on the HBO television series Sex and the City, for which she won four Golden Globe Awards, two Screen Actors Guild Awards and two Emmy Awards.

Vanessa Hudgens has recently sued the website for illegally uploading her naked pictures without her acknowledgement. Dig a bit deeper and you come to know that Vanessa had taken some nude self portraits few years back. The pictures were clicked in the bathroom on her Motorola Razr for some personal reasons. Well…has to be personal! You don’t take naked self portraits for showing the whole world, right?
But unfortunately (or fortunately!) the whole world saw the snaps! And there I ask…who leaked them?
Apparently, Vanessa Hudgen had mailed the snaps to her boyfriend Zac Efron! But Zac is not likely to be the culprit as this deed would have caused him more damage than any benefit whatsoever.
But there are speculations that Vanessa might have done this on purpose. She has a stronger and more meaningful motive… “Publicity”! However cheap it may sound, we can’t deny it that the easiest probable way for starlets to “reach” common people is via naked snaps! You go nude, and the world goes frantic searching for the details!
Vanessa is a Disney starlet. People know her as Gabriella Montez of High School Musical. But does that make her popular enough? Guess not! Nude pics were the best probable way for the attention she wanted, and look…she is having it now, isn’t it?
Well, nothing can be said for sure but anything is possible in this tinsel town and we leave the decision on you!

What is so big for this young vampire, which is not getting handled by him? Put on your thinking caps folks! This time it’s really becoming big for your hero to handle it. Two successful films back to back is simply making the crowd crazy, in fact so crazy that one kissed him on his lips, in spite of suffering from swine flu! It’s really dangerous, isn’t it?
When things get bigger it becomes tougher and Rob realizes it pretty well. He has come up with this argument which is making us think about his overwhelming popularity just after Twilight saga.
“It worries me, because the whole Twilight series is getting bigger and bigger and will grow more with the coming up of the next three flicks, and now it’s so big, that it is becoming very tough for me to handle it, even my own ego, which is a psychological implication, can’t cope with it!” Rob said.( www.take40.com)
He added that “A certain amount of success you can mentally deal with, because you tend to enjoy it but there’s a point where you think: ‘Jesus Christ, what is this? I’m not that great!” Now that seems to be a very humble comment from the star but along with it there’s smells something different. He is afraid of the spotlight. Sometimes it’s good but sometimes it can be other way round.
My question goes out to the readers. How do you think he should handle his stardom?

She rather confessed that she is looking forward to go back to family feuds that end up being a part of her Christmas celebrations.

“We go to Colorado every year where we grew up and just hang out. It’s a great time because it’s the one time when we all really get together,” the Daily Express quoted her as saying. One time in a year, must be a very much awaited moment for the starlet.
“I can’t wait to see who gets in the first argument, that’s always a good one. There’s always going to be one argument. One argument is more than enough to throw the ball in the court.
“There’s always going to be the one that everybody’s worried about in the family – always! There’s always somebody saying, ‘I’m really concerned about your brother or I’m really concerned about Aunt so-and-so!’” she added. (ANI)

Looks like bubbly siren Miley Cyrus has got herself a man who pulls no punches!
Well, incase you folks are thinkin that we are hinting at another ‘black – eye’ thing (remember Rihanna?), lets just say that it’s nothing of the kind!
All we are getting at is that the pretty Hannah Montana girl ought to take comfort from the knowledge that her current beau Liam Hemsworth is a kinda guy who’ll not let his sweetie be messed around with.
Get the drift now?
Yeah folks! It appears now that the hunk has a history of violence.
Purely on the evidence of a report carried by celebrity and entertainment website TMZ.com, it would appear that just months before Liam and Miley officially became a couple, the 19 year old lad in a grey stripped shirt and his actor beau Chris Hemsworth of ‘Star – Trek’ fame picked up an all out brawl with a random guy after an event in Hollywood.
It further appears that what started as a harmless banter soon degenerated into a no – holes – barred showdown once the conversation got nasty at the late night event and the brothers approached the lad and socked him bad.
And had it not been for the security and the cops who made a timely intervention, the guy could have been in line for some serious bashing.
Say Miley old girl, you sure got yourself a pretty mean body – watcher ha!

Since the untimely and unexpected death of Brittany Murphy on Sunday morning, many speculations have stirred up. From the cause of her death to the possibility of any foul play to the probable successor of Murphy’s wealth…everything is under public analysis.
One of such curiosities has been that who will inherit Brittany’s property? This comes as a shock to many and fishy to others that Brittany had a will where she had declared all her property to her mother! Yes guys, to her mother Sharon, and not to her husband Simon Monjack! It was reported that in her will Brittany’s wealth would be inherited by none other than her mother Sharon.
Does that mean she loved her mom more than she loved her husband? Nothing can be argued at this stage! Actually the will was made much before she got married! As the reports say, she had left her total assets for her mother. And did she change her will after marriage? Not yet known! No mention of her husband anywhere in the will. That implies that Simon Monjack would not have any official right on his wife’s property.
Strange…isn’t it? It was reported that there was a deep love between Brittany and Simon. But the latest revelation about the will, if true, states a different story altogether!
Not just that, Brittany had a trust which she had made before her marriage and Simon’s name is not mentioned there. However, there are possibilities that she might have added his name later. If Simon’s name is found to be added later as one of the trustees, then he would have the lawful authority of the mansion they stayed in. Otherwise…God knows!
Don’t you think it sounds so true when Simon had said, “My world was destroyed yesterday” after Brittany’s death? Well…it fits in so well now….!
