7 million for Julia

"Pretty Woman" Julia Roberts hasn't even begun preparing for her Broadway debut in April - and advance ticket sales are already booming. Now it's more than seven million USD.

Tickets for the revival of Richard Greenberg's generational drama "Three Days of Rain" went on sale for the first time last Friday, and by Monday the production had taken in four million dollars in single-ticket sales, the New York Post reported.
Demand was so high on Friday that the Internet ticketing website crashed for an hour.
"Three Days of Rain" tells the story of a brother and a sister unravelling the truth behind their father's death and its connection with their childhood friend.

Roberts is the latest in a line of A-list Hollywood stars seeking a stint in the theatrical spotlight. The last Broadway season saw Washington's Brutus and Jessica Lange in "The Glass Menagerie" and Kathleen Turner in "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf".

Julia has been out of the public eye since she gave birth last year to twins.

A smart hotel cleaner, who found the clippings in Crowe's bathroom after he stayed with his wife Danielle Spencer at the Hilton Hotel in Brisbane, eastern Australia, decided that other fans would jump at the chance to own the Gladiator facial fur.

She says: "Mr Crowe had obviously trimmed his beard that morning in one of the bathroom sinks and being something of a fan, on an impulse, I wrapped these clippings in a handkerchief and took them home"

Now Russel Crowe beard have been thrown up on an internet auction site, with one obviously delusional fan bidding $200 for the Gladiator's leftovers.

Uma Thurman and Toilet

What is the most hated habbit for her ? It is is a man who doesn't flush the toilet, it's even worse than love cheat.

She is quoted in Britain's Now magazine as saying: "It seems harder and harder to make contact with men, especially for mature women. But it's better to have a relationship with someone who cheats on you than someone who doesn't flush the toilet."

Sexy blonde actress said about her ex husband Ethan Hawke, that the one thing she can't stand in a lover is someone who has no respect in the bathroom.

Uma recently admitted she sees all potential dates as "prey". The beautiful 'Kill Bill' actress admitted: "As one who adores the male species, I feel compassionately towards them "I've studied them carefully like a hunter watches its prey."

There is gossip, that Uma Thurman is planning to build a hotel and baths /with 80 rooms/ in Rhinebeck near New York. Local citizens don't look very satisfied with that news. Local trader Jamie Steward don't want change of his quiet town to celebrity paradise with tons of paparazzi.

Woody, Mia and Daughter

Legendary director Woody Allen claims he's glad ex-wife Mia Farrow found his nude photos of her adopted daughter, Soon-Yi.

About his scandalic marriage with 35 years younger adopted daughter he said: "It was one of the great pieces of luck in my life. It was a turning point in my life for the better".

However, Woody admits he is still like a father figure to his young bride.

Speaking of their relationship, he confessed in an interview with Vanity Fair magazine: "It's got a more paternal feeling to it.

"All the women I went out with were basically my age. Now, here, it just works like magic. The very inequality of me being older and much more accomplished, much more experienced, takes away any real meaningful conflict."

69 years old Woody also claims he hates getting older, saying: "Ageing is a terrible thing It's just all bad news You deteriorate physically and die. "I've gained no wisdom, insight or mellowing"

Jennifer Aniston is Fine

She is ok again after her very public breakup with Brad Pitt. The couple's divorce was finalized on Oct. 2.

"Do I talk to Brad? Yes, we do, I do," the 36-year-old star tells "Good Morning America's" Diane Sawyer. "That's very peaceful. It's a really peaceful thing. That's another thing … people want it to be this war and this mean, terrible, shallow thing that's just playing like some soap opera or story line, and it's just not. So, yeah, pleasant, done."

Despite the very public exposure of Pitt and Jolie's relationship, Aniston tells Sawyer that she's not angry at Pitt, her husband of 4½ years.

"How do you do this?" Sawyer asked. "I mean, for all the girls out there who want to know, how do you do this? How do you move on from something a lot of people would think …"

"I will not let myself down like that," Aniston said. "I have a lot of amazing women, you know, women in my life who have been an example for me of what not to do. So, and I also know what feels good, and it doesn't feel good to harbor anger and resentment."

Bono is fighting for US support with solving global problems since 1999.
Bono said: “I’m representing the poorest and the most vulnerable people. On a spiritual level, I have that with me. I’m throwing a punch, and the fist belongs to people who can’t be in the room, whose rage, whose anger, whose hurt I represent."
“The moral force is way beyond mine, it’s an argument that has much more weight than I have. So I’m not feeling nervous.”
