LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Your Daily Dispatch of Celebrity Shenanigans
Actor Spat Watch — Brolin Vs. Crowe: Does Hollywood have a new celeb feud brewing between Josh Brolin and Russell Crowe? Monday night at the New York Film Critics Awards dinner Josh had a not-so-glowing endorsement for his “American Gangster” co-star, Russell Crowe, The Huffington Post reported. After his “Milk” co-star Sean Penn introduced him, Josh said, “Quite an actor, Sean Penn. And not an a-hole like Russell Crowe.” Josh then repeated: “Like Russell Crowe.” But it wasn’t just Russell who was on Josh’s hit list – he also took aim at New York Times theater critic Ben Brantley (who reviewed his Broadway performance in Sam Shepard’s “True West”), saying, “I hate that motherf*****, and I don’t think he’s a good writer.” Sounds like Josh needs to put down the newspaper and go to his happy place.
Hollywood’s Best Dance Crew: Yo!… Randy Jackson… if you need some contestants for your MTV show “America’s Best Dance Crew,” we’d like to suggest Jaime Foxx and Joaquin Phoenix. The duo took to the stage of Miami’s LIV last week and busted some impressive dance moves, the New York Daily News’ Gatecrasher reported. “[They] danced around and acted like clowns as Casey Affleck filmed them,” an onlooker told the paper. “They said they were making a documentary.” And the dancing didn’t stop with Jaime and Joaquin — director Brett Ratner also joined in – proving that comedy still happens in threes!
Madonna Spreads The Louis Vuitton Love: Madonna is taking her love for handbags to new lengths in her new ad for Louis Vuitton. The singer, who is no stranger to controversial poses, fails to disappoint with a new photo of the singer spread eagle with a handbag dangling from her leg. We’re not sure that’s how Louis wanted consumers to carry the bag, but since when has Madonna ever followed the rules? See Madge’s bag shot HERE!
Amy Winehouse Swaps Blake For A Slice Of Beef Cake: Amy Winehouse continued her Caribbean comeback with a new man by her side – and it’s not “My Blake incarcerated.” Amy was spotted frolicking on the beaches of St. Lucia with rugby player Joshua Bowman. No word if they are a couple, but judging from the photos they sure are mighty friendly. See Amy’s new non-incarcerated guy HERE!
