Jen Aniston On Prying People: ‘It’s None Of Your F****** Business’: Jennifer Aniston sure does seem to be trying really hard to ditch that whole “America’s Sweetheart” label. When asked by USA Today about the public’s fascination with her life, Jen said, “I think it’s ridiculous. There’s just this insatiable need,” she told the newspaper. “I am honestly getting sick of it, and I feel like telling people, ‘You know what? It’s none of your f****** business.’ Seriously, it’s enough… It’s like we’re appealing to the lowest.” We’re starting to miss the Rachel Green days.
Jonas Brothers & Taylor Swift To Rock Times Square: It appears 2009 is going to be about keeping the past in the past, especially for exes Joe Jonas and Taylor Swift, who are both set to take part in “Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve,” live from Times Square, People reported. They will join performer Lionel Richie and host Kellie Pickler from NYC. And on the West Coast, hostess Fergie will intro performances by Natasha Bedingfield, Fall Out Boy, Jesse McCartney, Ne-Yo, Pussycat Dolls, Solange and Robin Thicke. Let’s hope everyone has resolved to not to have any public on-air spats.
“Potter’s” Emma Watson On Doing Nude Scenes: It’s official, the kids of “Harry Potter” are all grown up. Emma Watson, who is 18-years-old, said she would go nude – just like her “Harry Potter” co-star Daniel Radlcliffe has done in the West End and on Broadway for the play “Equus” – that is, for the right project. “Yes. For Bernardo Bertolucci. It . . . depends. I’m not getting my kit off any time soon, but it is part of my job,” the actress told Britain’s The Daily Telegraph. At this rate, it won’t be long before we see Ron, Dumbledore or Hagrid in the buff!
Nick & Starr Win “Amazing Race”: It was another close race to the finish line on the finale of “The Amazing Race” on Sunday. Siblings, Nick and Starr, who loved their tight camouflaged tank tops and T-shirts, beat runners up Ken and Tina, a separated husband and wife trying to overcome infidelity in their marriage. Ken asked for his wife to renew their wedding vows at the finish line, saying, “Let’s do it right this time.” Tina tearfully accepted. They didn’t get the million, but at least they got each other!
