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.

Russel Crowe's Beard for Sale

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.
