  • Katy Perry claims Mick Jagger hit on her when she was 18, but he denies it

    Was it all just a teenage dream? That's what Mick Jagger is suggesting after Katy Perry accused him of making a pass at her when she was just 18.

    In an interview on the Australian breakfast radio show "Ash, Kip and Luttsy" on Thursday, the 29-year-old "Roar" singer said the Rolling Stones frontman hit on her when she was just starting out in the music biz. They met when she did backup vocals for his 2004 song "Old Habits Die Hard."

    "I actually went to dinner with him one time, and he hit on me one time, when I was like, 18," Perry said. At the time, Jagger would have been around 60 and in the midst of a relationship with his current girlfriend, fashion designer L'Wren Scott, whom he has reportedly been dating since 2001.

    Perry quipped that she got out of the situation by unloading her friend on the famous ladies' man. But she doesn't appear to hold any grudges, saying, "since then he's been very kind, and I got to sing 'Beast of Burden' with him on his stage on the Rolling Stones tour."

    But Jagger, who has seven children with four different women, has denied her claim.

    "Mick Jagger categorically denies that he has ever made a pass at Katy Perry," his publicist said in a statement. "Perhaps she is confusing him with someone else."

  • Hayden Christensen debuts his new clothing line — and his new moustache

    Earlier this week, Hayden Christensen not only launched his new clothing line for RW&CO., but he also debuted some new facial hair.

    The 32-year-old "Star Wars" lead looked a little different than we remembered when he hit the red carpet with scruffy beard and moustache. The actor was promoting his new fashion line, Hayden Christensen for RW&CO., at the Toronto Eaton Center on Wednesday.

    Christensen also happened to be dressed entirely from the men's line, though he admitted that he was thinking about women when he was designing the 20-piece collection.

  • Donald Faison and Zach Braff mock Julianne Hough’s Halloween costume

    Zach Braff and Donald Faison are scrubbing the floor with Julianne Hough's racist Halloween costume.

    On Twitter earlier this week, the "Scrubs" stars mocked Hough's now-infamous "Orange Is the New Black" Halloween costume in which she wore blackface in a tribute to the show's African American character Crazy Eyes. The getup caused many to harshly criticize Hough for her insensitivity.

    Braff and Faison, however, appeared less offended than they were amused by such an obvious faux pas. So much so that they offered to respond in kind.

  • Corey Haim’s mother slams Corey Feldman for writing about son’s sexual abuse

    Corey Haim's mother thinks "Coreyography" should just stick to the life of another Corey — Corey Feldman.

    Judy Haim, mom of the "Lost Boys" star who died in 2010, has slammed her son's former best friend for writing about Haim's history of sexual abuse in his new memoir. In "Coreyography," Feldman describes how Haim confided in him that he was molested on the set of one of his first films, 1986's "Lucas."

    "At some point during the filming, he explained, an adult male convinced him that it was perfectly normal for older men and younger boys in the business to have sexual relations, that it was what all the ‘guys do,’" Feldman wrote. "So, they walked off to a secluded area between two trailers, during a lunch break for the cast and crew, and Haim, innocent and ambitious as he was, allowed himself to be

  • BBC show ‘Have I Got News for You’ under fire for joking that Prince Harry snorts cocaine

    British comedian Jo Brand is in some royal trouble after jokingly suggesting Prince Harry snorts cocaine. The 56-year-old BAFTA award-winning comedian is a regular guest on the BBC panel show "Have I Got News for You," a satirical news quiz show involving a rotating roster of politicians, journalists, and comedians, and her latest appearance may be her most memorable.

    On the Oct. 24 episode, Brand noted the queen's grandson -- whom she referred to as Hugh van Cutsem, though his name is actually Harry -- was the godparent of Prince William and Kate Middleton's son, Prince George (the newborn was christened last week). In reference to van Cutsem's last name, she said, "I presume that's a nickname, as in Hugh van cuts 'em and Harry then snorts 'em."

    The audience erupted in gales of laughter, but the team captains were slightly less enthusiastic. Comedian Paul Merton had a look of shock on his face, while Private Eye magazine editor Ian Hislop asked what everyone seemed to be thinking: "Have we lost the lawyers?"

    Christina Ricci's whirlwind romance with James Heerdegen has been capped off with an intimate wedding. The duo wed on Saturday in New York at Harold Pratt House & Peterson Hall, an antique mansion where the Council on Foreign Relations is headquartered. Ricci reportedly wore a Givenchy haute couture gown, according to People.

    The happy couple met on the set of Ricci's 2011 TV series "Pan Am," on which Heerdegen worked as a dolly grip. He has plied his trade as a Hollywood technician since 2000 on films such as "Baby Mama" and "Sex and the City," as well as TV series like "Nurse Jackie" and "Elementary."

    Us Weekly broke the news that the two were an item in February 2012 after they were photographed vacationing together in Puerto Rico.

    A year later, Ricci announced their engagement (she had been engaged once before to actor Owen Benjamin, in 2009). People reported the 33-year-old actress had been wearing her ring since October 2012, and Ricci herself

  • Emma Thompson tried to have a ‘rude relationship’ with Prince Charles

    Either Emma Thompson has imbibed some love punch, or she's just really fond of Prince Charles. In a new interview with Time magazine, the 54-year-old British actress claimed His Royal Highness could have dated her if he wanted to.

    “There’s a long history of relationships between Princes of Wales and actors — not just actresses, not just the rude relationships as he would say, though God knows I’ve tried,” she quipped. “He wasn’t having any of it.”

    Though they may not have had a sexual relationship, Thompson appears to have gotten pretty intimate with the prince on the dance floor. "Dancing with Charles, an old friend, is better than sex," she told Time.

    The "Love Punch" star and the Prince of Wales have been friends for more than a decade. Not only have he and his wife, Camilla, had dinner at Thompson's home, but she and actor Rowan Atkinson reportedly organized a birthday surprise for Charles in 1998 when he turned 50. That was the same year that the British royal met the cast of

    Believe it or not, this is what Richard Gere looks like now.

    People's Sexiest Man Alive of 1999 was nearly unrecognizable on the set of his new film "Franny" earlier this week. The 64-year-old actor was photographed Monday shooting a number of scenes sporting long grey hair and a colourful scarf.

    In the film, Gere plays a philanthropist who befriends a couple of newlyweds in order to recapture his youth. Directed by newcomer Andrew Renzi, the movie also stars Dakota Fanning and Theo James as the couple.
