Even if you are a famous soccer star, your mom can still call you out:

Famous people's sex lives are boring, too:

Most conscious of her own celebrity:

It seems like every week the tabloids are trying to pair up Jen Aniston with her latest co-star, taking pity in her singledom amongst the force that is Brangelina. But this time we're taking the bait: the actress was spotted "sitting very close" to Orlando Bloom at L.A. eatery Beso last week, where "she was looking at him like he was her favorite guy in the world." Can you really blame her? Hopefully, this time it's game, set, love match for the lovely lady. [Defamer]
And now for a fun little question: if you were Jen, which Orlando would you pine for?

Jay-Z has been irreplaceable to Beyonce since 2002, and slowly but surely the couple is inching their way to the altar. Sure, these rumors pop up every so often, but this time People is reporting that a marriage license was obtained in Scarsdale Village, New York and is valid for 60 days. That means the Bonnie & Clyde of hip-hop have until June 1 to wed-we can't wait! Will she wear a Tina Knowles creation? Will the first dance be to Crazy in Love?
We can't help but smile at another power couple success. So what's their secret? Keeping their private life private. Photos may be taken from time to time, but if celebs could learn to keep their mouths shut and stop being camera w----s we'd place money on their relationships lasting much longer. Beyonce Knowles is 26, right around the same age as Britney and Paris, and surely she carries herself with a certain sense of class, but more importantly she knows there are things that aren't meant to be discussed, or shown to the press.

Frank Micelotta/Getty Images EntertainmentAfter a downward spiral of depressing events both professionally and personally, Britney Spears is slowly climbing back up the ladder with a successful TV appearance on How I Met Your Mother, and offers from 30 Rock and PETA. And now there is more good news: she is rekindling her working relationship with former manager Larry Rudolph. For those of you who don't know, he's the guy Britney's parents turned to in convincing her to enter rehab, so we're clearly into this guy. Though Britney and Larry have a bumpy history together, they have now made nice and she is enlisting his help for her comeback. This got us to thinking... if only Ms. Spears could take back the other mistakes she's made along the way. [OK!]Read More »from Britney gets her old manager back, plus her Top 10 mistakes ever!

Most people would be jumping for joy at the sight of their face on a billboard, but this the very fact why director Woody Allen is suing American Apparel chairman Dov Charney. (It's not for sexual harassment, shocking, we know.) The clothing company used of an image of Woody from his infamous film, Annie Hall, dressed as a Hasidic Jew without his consent, and the director is so peeved he's suing for $10 million.
In a Manhattan court, Allen stated that he flat out does not endorse any commercial products or services, which makes the AA billboards and web ads "especially egregious and damaging." (Strange, because we definitely remember him doing an a for American Express, but this is beside the point.) The advertisements are downright confusing, yet a refreshing change from the typical leotard-donning hipsters we're accustomed to seeing. Woody, get that paper on behalf of frustrated $18 plain t-shirt wearing consumers like us! [Reuters]

Hold your horses! Contrary to what you may have read this weekend, Brad and Angelina did not exchange nuptials at a ceremony in New Orleans. On a mission to be the first publication with the scoop, Star reported that a wedding took place at the French Quarter Wedding Chapel totally jumping the gun. C'mon guys, if you were going to take an educated guess, you should have gone with another baby adoption-far more likely.Read More »from Brad and Angelina are as married as "Star" magazine is credible
Star claims that insiders confirmed the marriage, but "after further investigation, the sources are not standing by their story." Oh right. Too bad once someone did the slightest bit of investigating, the rumors were put to an abrupt halt. "No, they did not come in here yesterday and no, they did not get married here," the chapel's co-owner, Lou Ann Talavera, told E! News. The best part? The couple wasn't even in town-they've been chilling in Texas where Brad is filming his new movie Tree of Life. We swear that'll be the last time we get excited and fall pray to a silly
