Your Daily Dispatch of Celebrity Shenanigans

Brad Pitt --The Hillbilly: Director Quentin Tarantino cautioned fans on his blog not to expect a typical WWII movie when they go to see his new flick “Inglorious Basterds,” starring Brad Pitt. “This ain’t your Warner Brothers 1950s WW2 hero, this is a hillbilly straight from the mountains of Tennessee, a man with a scar around his neck that ‘will never once be mentioned,’” Quentin wrote on his blog. “This is Brad Pitt in one hundred percent Quentin Tarantino Nazi-scalping business.” Sounds like Tom Cruise’s “Valkyrie” just got some fierce competition!

Swinger Marilyn Manson: And now for the complete opposite of a hillbilly — Marilyn Manson reveled some juicy information to People at the Spike Scream Awards over the weekend about his ex-girlfriend and his current relationship options. “I talk to [Dita Von Teese] now a little bit,” he told the mag. “I am not a Kraft piece of cheese. I don’t like to be classified. If I was on MySpace, I would say ‘swinging.’” We’re guessing Marilyn is disappointed that CBS’s sexy summer show, “Swingtown,” still has its future in flux!

Jessica Simpson Smitten With Romo, Over “Butthead” Exes: And for some completely non-swinger news, Jessica Simpson could not say enough good things about boyfriend Tony Romo at the State Fair of Texas in Dallas over the weekend, People reported. “The calm of the storm in my life” she explained to the crowd of Tony. “Whatever I go through, I know I can depend on him to relax and bring me faith again.” Jess wasn’t all rainbows and teddy bears though, she took a moment to bash an unnamed ex in front of the crowd, saying, “Sometimes, to find a love as big as that, you have to go through some heartbreak, some ugly ones and some butthead ones.”

Faith Hill’s New Bendy Bod: And in another dash of down-home goodness, Faith Hill is sporting a bikini for Shape magazine’s December issue, and the country singer credits Pilates for helping her work up enough courage to appear in a two piece. “I could bend in ways I haven’t been able to since I was a teenager,” she told the mag. “My husband [Tim McGraw] loves it!” Naturally… and duh!
