Why is Tori Spelling one of Hollywood’s 50 hottest trendsetters?

“Because I’m so passionate about fashion and style that I wake up every day excited about putting together an intriguing new look,” Spelling said at a party last week honoring Life & Style magazine’s list of StyleMakers.

“But underneath the contemporary trends, I really love the old Hollywood era and the looks perfected by Veronica Lake, Elizabeth Taylor and Natalie Wood,” Spelling said.

[b]Joining her in the magazine’s June 6 issue are Fantasia Barrino, Halle Berry, Tom Cruise, Paris and Nicky Hilton, Kate Hudson, Nicole Kidman, Beyonce Knowles, Jude Law, Lindsay Lohan, Jennifer Lopez, Jessie Metcalfe, Gwyneth Paltrow, Brad Pitt and Renee Zellweger.[/b]

NICOLE KIDMAN has furiously slammed reports a knee injury sustained in 2000 almost ended her movie career, because it made her insurance too high for film bosses to cover.

The Hollywood beauty damaged her right knee while filming movie musical MOULIN ROUGE! and was forced to delay the film while she recovered, causing two claims for the postponements and a staggering $3 million (£1.65 million) insurance loss, according to movie industry guru EDWARD J EPSTEIN.

Epstein also alleges on website SLATE.COM that the Australian actress cost insurers an additional $7 million (£3.7 million) the following year (01) when her recurring injury forced her to quit thriller PANIC ROOM, after three weeks of shooting.

AS NICOLE Kidman delivered her Best Actress speech at the 2003 Oscars, it seemed almost inconceivable that behind the scenes her career was being considered as dead as her ghostly co-stars in The Others.

Confirmed that evening by the Academy as one of her generation’s finest actresses, Kidman was this week revealed to have then been experiencing the career-threatening problem of becoming one of Hollywood’s “uninsurables”.

Edward Jay Epstein, a Hollywood author and economist, claims that Kidman’s career was at that stage hamstrung by the billion-dollar business of Hollywood insurance, following a knee injury she sustained in 2002 on the set of Moulin Rouge, in which she starred alongside Ewan McGregor.

Pointing out that Hollywood is becoming increasingly risk-averse, a situation manifested in multi-million dollar insurance policies which can make or break a star or production, Epstein said: “In the old days it was mainly about movies and insurance was a byproduct of the entertainment industry; now Hollywood is all about reducing risk.”

It’s been more than four years since Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman went their separate ways. Yet people are still fascinated by their relationship.

What went wrong? Could it have been saved? Tom tries to clear up some of the mystery in Part III of his exclusive interview with Billy Bush.

Is or was Nicole ever a Scientologist?

“No,” said Tom, who also denied that was one of the reasons for their split.

“I definitely respect other people’s beliefs and however they want to live,” he said. “There are tools she has used in her life, absolutely.”

Two years before the split, Nicole gave an interview to Newsweek in which she said, “Monogamy is not a natural way of being.”

Tom was asked about the statement and indicated he disagreed with her. “I believe in monogamy. I want and I love relationships. I believe in the family unit. It is important, the family unit. Look at where the family unit has gone. It’s disintegrated.”

IT’S been a year since Naomi Watts last had a boyfriend but it seems she’s finally moved on after her split with Heath Ledger.

Watts is seeing US actor Liev Schreiber in what is her first relationship since the bust-up with Ledger, whom she’d been with for two years, in May 2004.
The actress and her new squeeze, a tall, dark and handsome 37-year-old, have been spotted out and about in Schreiber’s native New York City recently and on Saturday (May 21st) attended a U2 concert together at Madison Square Garden.

The loved-up pair were at the concert with Naomi’s best pal Nicole Kidman, who reportedly rebuffed advances from Sean “P Diddy” Combs while backstage.

Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman didn’t consider marriage counselling to save their relationship – because the movie hunk’s Scientology beliefs forbid such forms of “psychiatry”.

The couple shocked Hollywood when they split in February 2001 after almost 10 years of marriage, and now, in an exclusive interview with US TV show Access Hollywood, Cruise reveals there was no way of working things out once he decided it was over.

He says: “They say::’Hey, promiscuity is part of marriage, it’s OK.’ You have this whole thing going out there.”

Cruise insists even the church’s own counselling schemes wouldn’t have worked for him and Kidman, but refuses to go into details about why they split up.

He adds: “There is marriage counselling in scientology that we apply that actually helps to put people back into communication with one another.”

Meanwhile, the Mission: Impossible star used the interview on the show to praise his Catholic ex-wife for allowing him to follow his Scientology beliefs, and let their adopted kids join the church, even though she never became a member herself.

He explains: “Nic and I are doing a great job raising our children because, right from the beginning, the thing that I do admire about Nic is the respect of someone else’s beliefs. She’s not a bigot.”

The staff at the Four Seasons hotel in Chicago did quite the double-take Wednesday when actress Nicole Kidman just missed running into her ex-husband, Tom Cruise and his new flame.

All three were in town to tape Oprah shows. Kidman flew in to join Will Ferrell, who’s filming “Stranger Than Fiction” here. The two were scheduled to tape an Oprah show about their upcoming movie, “Bewitched.”

No more than five minutes after Kidman walked out of the hotel, Cruise arrived with his new girlfriend, Katie Holmes. He was in town to tape another Oprah show about his upcoming “War of the Worlds” summer blockbuster.

Obviously Cruise and Kidman are in constant touch due to joint custody of their two children, but they work hard not to be seen together in public since their divorce.

Nicole Kidman has decided she wants bigger boobs and has a canny plan up her sleeve for how to get them.

The star reckons her ticket to a bigger bust is to get pregnant.

Nic, who is famous for her tall lithe figure, is fed up with being super slim and now wants more curves.

“I would like to look like Marilyn Monroe.” Nic reportedly told Reveal magazine.

Whereas many celebrities opt for the surgeon’s knife, Nicole is convinced getting pregnant is the way to up her cup size.

“If I had my own baby, I would have bigger boobs. That’s one of the good things I can think of that would come out of it!”

But she might have a bit of trouble getting in the baby way… although she was seeing Liz Hurley’s ex Steve Bing, the pair have supposedly split up.
