Kristen BF "Insecure" Over Robert Pattinson

Time for your daily dose of New Moon horniness: We told you yesterday that Nikki Reed and Robert Pattinson are most definitely not knocking relationship boots behind the scenes.

And we've pointed out some weird goings-on with R and our gal Kristen (happy belated birthday, babe).

So that left many of us wondering where Kristen's boyfriend, Michael Arangano, is during all of this very breathless Twilight back-and-forth. A friend to the "couple" spills:

"Michael is really insecure when it comes to Rob," 'fesses a pal close to the romance pentagon up north. We're told Arangano hardly laughs off Robsten rumors.

"Rob and Kristen would have to be very sneaky if they were dating. Everywhere [Kristen] goes, [Michael] now wants to go too. He's extremely jealous. And let's just say he's been trying to be up in Vancouver a lot lately," adds our Industry insider.

So where does that leave Rob then, if there's a third wheel around?

"By himself or with his publicist or manager, usually," we're told.

Disclaimer here folks: When we said yesterday that Robert "f--ks who he wants," we did not mean it necessarily in a man-whoring way. Doug Reinhardt he most decidedly is not. We love our Pattz! We simply meant that R will not go screw or date girls just because he's told to do so...à la other Twilight-ites.

We hear that Rob wanted to disprove that rumor so badly that he purposely tried to be photographed out with Kristen last week. Easier said than done. "He doesn't want [Kristen] or anyone to think he's dating Nikki."

God this stuff is so juicy! We'd way rather watch this romance crap on the big screen. Wouldn't you? Or should we wait to see New Moon before saying so? Nah...

Is Jamie Spears Too Controlling?

Jamie Spears is obviously doing a helluva lot better job at managing Britney and her career than Lynne ever did. But we think Camp Spears is treading OCD waters. Like trying to shut down B's No.1 fansite, BreatheHeavy.

We caught up with the site's owner, Jordan Miller, who thinks he knows what the whole debacle is really about. And we say he's dead-on.

"They don't want me speaking out about this conservatorship. It seems like Jamie Spears thinks he can do whatever he wants," dished Miller.

Apparently, Jamie 'n' Co. say the only way they'll allow the website to exist is if all posts go through them, first. "If they do that, it's not my website. It's just another website they can manage and control," J.M. rightfully bitched. Well, we're hearing that Jamie isn't only micromanaging B's career, but her love life, too. Find out who lights Britney's fire when daddy isn't looking:

Apparently, our gal was jonesing for her backup dancer Chase Benz. "I did hear that as soon as daddy left, [Britney] was all over him. But cannot confirm," spilled Miller. (And we hear from other sources that Brit herself, quite unlike the elder Spears, actually adores and sometimes directly contacts Miller).

Update: Orbit Around This Moon Trailer

Interview: The Dark Side of Laurie Strode

When Scout Taylor-Compton was younger, her uncle would don the iconic Michael Myers mask and scare the hell out of the actress. Years later, when she became a part of horror franchise history playing Laurie Strode in Rob Zombie's Halloween that memorable piece of latex and hair would come back to haunt her yet again. "I hate that mask so much," she says, her voice cut with an ounce of revulsion to prove her point. "By filming the movie, it freaked me out the first time, but now I'm used to it. It's not really scary."

The 20-year-old star of the highly controversial update of John Carpenter's film is reprising her role as Strode for Zombie's H2. And if you thought the mousy innocent high school student of the remake, who cracked sexual jokes using a bagel, was a departure from Jamie Lee Curtis' virginal representation of Strode, wait until you get a load of Taylor-Compton in the sequel.

ShockTillYouDrop.com joins the actress, post-dinner, on the set of H2 nearly five months before the film's August 28th release. It's a frigid night in Newborn, Georgia where the crew is shooting and she retires for a spell to her trailer dressed in a flannel robe, a humorous contradiction to the concealed display of sex appeal beneath: A black French maid's costume, shredded black stockings and pointy-toed boots. The ensemble is tied together by blood, literally from head to toe. Crimson streaks adorn her pale face like war paint.

"Do you mind if I smoke," she asks. I don't. There are cartons around the room. She finds a cigarette in one, but doesn't light it. Instead, she hops on a nearby counter and perches there with the cigarette in hand. "The first time I heard about Halloween 2, there were two French directors [inside's Alexandre Bustillo and Julien Maury] doing it and I was hesitant," she admits. "Then Rob e-mailed me and said, 'Hey, I'm doing this film but don't tell anybody, it hasn't been set down yet.' Then he called me and said, 'We're doing this,' and I hadn't read the script until the day before I was leaving. All he said was 'Be ready to kick ass.' I had no idea what the script was about until I read it on the plane. I had no idea what Laurie was going to go through, then I was like 'Holy shit, this movie's about me.' I guess I got to be prepared."

The actress says she was relieved two years had passed before she was asked back for the sequel. Although she has yet to experience the back-to-back filming some franchise films are wont to do, Taylor-Compton agrees time off from Strode was healthy - especially since the sequel also picks up two years later after her character was thrown from the second floor of a house with her masked brother. That's an experience bound to screw anyone up, Strode is no exception.

"It's just really intense what she's going through [in the sequel]," Taylor-Compton explains. "She's happy one moment and in the next she's yelling at the people she loves and she's crying. She's going through these bipolar moments. [Rob] definitely wanted to see my character go into these really dark places by little pieces here and there." The result surprised both the director and his actress. "I did this scene with Margot Kidder and we had to do both of her scenes in one day. The first scene is me with the psychiatrist expressing my feelings - and I just told Danielle Harris [Annie Brackett] I hate expressing my feelings. And then here I am developing this friendship with my psychiatrist, but then I just freak out and I go apeshit on her. I yell at her and scream at her and it was so empowering. Rob just looked at me and said, 'Oh my God, I didn't know you had that in you.' There are a lot of things I didn't know I had in me and discovered while I was filming this movie."

An outburst during a visit to the psychiatrist is just the tip of the iceberg. Strode, this time out, has emotional angst pulling at her on a myriad of levels. For instance, she's still in the dark on how she's connected to Myers when the film begins. "I don't know certain elements about it. I know all of my friends are dead, my parents are dead and it's two years later and here's this run down Laurie Strode. And she learns these things and it's more and more adding to her. She doesn't know how to deal with it." Her internal darkness materializes externally as shown in recent photos of Strode on the set that were posted by Zombie on his MySpace page. "Those are my boots and people online were saying they were white trash, and I was like 'Hey, those are my f**kin' boots!' She's messed up, what do you expect? The first time we were trying on wardrobe, the wardrobe people got it totally wrong and Rob came into the session and was like 'What the fuck, she's run down her family's been murdered, make her look grungy.' So we did and she totally kicks ass and I'm taking all of the clothes home with me."

Strode isn't the only one with a new look. Big bro Michael Myers (returning actor Tyler Mane) spends most of his time sans the jumpsuit and mask and sports a pretty impressive beard. "It's quite different. They had filmed with Tyler before me and I had heard things about a jacket and the mask. I hadn't necessarily seen it until two weeks into shooting. It was quite shocking, I think it's scarier than his look in the first one. It freaks me out a lot more than the suit and the mask. It's him trying to hide himself and it's a different emotion I think."

On this note, the unit publicist pops into the trailer and requests we wrap it up. Taylor-Compton apologizes for not being able to delve much further into the dynamic Strode shares with Myers this time out, but she teases, "It's something I don't think the audience is going to expect at all."

Stevie Nicks Tells Lindsay Lohan To ‘Stand Back’ About Playing Her In Movie

Will Miley Cyrus Be the Next Jonas Brothers (in a Bad Way)?

Miley Cyrus, The Hannah Montana Movie Sam Emerson/Disney Enterprises

If you're trying to sell out arenas, you want, perhaps even deeply desire, to be compared to the Jonas Brothers.

But if you're trying to sell out multiplexes, well...

Six weeks after the Jonases' concert movie famously underwhelmed, Miley Cyrus' Hannah Montana: The Movie hits theaters Friday, and the question arises: Will the tween franchise be the next, if you'll pardon the box-office expression, Jonas Brothers?

Probably not. Which is a good thing. For Cyrus.

Hands in the air! Jennifer Lopez jumps out of her seat to dance at her husband's show

Hands in the air! Jennifer Lopez jumps out of her seat to dance at her husband's show

Jennifer Lopez enjoyed watching husband Marc Anthony perform so much that she just couldn't keep her world-famous bottom in its seat.

Her husband, who has sold 10 million albums, sings in both Spanish and English and is credited with revolutionising salsa music, was playing a one off show at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Florida.

Seated with friends in a special VIP area right next to the stage, the star, who gave birth to twins a year ago, jumped to her feet as he sang, singing along and waving her BlackBerry in the air.

It's for you! J-Lo is still in her seat, but the excitement is building as she waves her phone in the air

Marc is not well known in the UK, but is very popular in the US, especially among the Spanish-speaking community. He has won several Grammy Awards.

But his music career appears not to be the most important thing in Marc's life.

The bilingual singer spoke enthusiastically last week of his desire to have more children as soon possible with J.Lo .
But sources claim Jennifer is reluctant to have more children in the near future, hoping to concentrate on her career once the twins are old enough and get back into the limelight, rather than returning straight to motherhood.

Having more children could pay off in a big way for Jennifer, if the benefits that came her way after the birth of the twins are anything to go by.

The couple sold the rights to exclusive pictures of their twins Max and Emme to People magazine for a reputed fee of $6million.

Not only that, but Marc decided to celebrate the births of their sons by giving her a $300,000 diamond ring.

Undaunted by the fact that everyone else was sitting down, J.Lo shook her well-known behind, showing off a fluffy grass skirt and some expensive jewellery.
Meanwhile, in his a light blue suit, a shirt unbuttoned down to his stomach, sunglasses and a diamond medallion swinging from his neck, Marc may have looked rather tacky to British eyes.
But to his fans - and his wife - Marc was the only show in town.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer star Sarah Michelle Gellar is pregnant, according to U.S. reports.

The actress, 31, and her actor husband Freddie Prinze Jr, 33, are expecting their first child together in autumn.

'They're very excited,' a source close to the couple told U.S. magazine People.

Freddie Prinze Jr. and Sarah Michelle Gellar

Gellar met her future husband Freddie Prinze, Jr on the set of the 1997 horror flick I Know What You Did Last Summer. They also starred together in the movie version of Scooby Doo.

They started dating in 2000 and were married in a lavish ceremony in Mexico on September 1, 2002.


Gellar appeared in the hit series Buffy the Vampire Slayer

The ceremony officiated by Adam Shankman, a film director and choreographer with whom Gellar had worked on Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
Although she is best known by her birth name, the actress legally changed her name to Sarah Michelle Prinze in honour of the couple's fifth year of marriage in 2007.
Her most famous acting role was as the character Buffy Summers in the series Buffy the Vampire Slayer and its spin-off Angel.
Humorously, she once revealed she had a phobia of being buried alive, which made it 'really hard being an ass-kicking vampire slayer when you are afraid of graves'.
The actress ended her role as Buffy in 2003 after a seven-year run but has recently been rumoured to be planning a feature-length film.
She also had leading roles in Cruel Intentions, Scooby-Doo, Japanese horror film The Grudge and Scream 2.
Gellar will next be seen in theatres playing a suicidal woman in her mid-twenties in the film Veronika Decides To Die, set for release in the U.S. in November.

Emma Watson (who's only 18) shows off her party-girl credentials with a long night of bar-hopping

Emma Watson (who's only 18) shows off her party-girl credentials with a long night of bar-hopping

She only hit legal drinking age less than a year ago, but Emma Watson is quickly making a name for herself as one of London's biggest party girls.
The pretty Harry Potter star kicked off the Easter Weekend with a spot a club-hopping at her favourite haunts.
After spending the night partying at Whisky Mist in Mayfair and Bungalow 8 in nearby Covent Garden, a dishevelled Emma staggered home at 2.30am.

Wearing a chic black and white t-shirt dress and black heels, Emma looked younger than her 18 years with her natural look make-up.

She started the evening off at Nick House's Whisky Mist venue, where she has been frequently spotted partying over the last few months, before attending a friend's birthday at Bungalow 8 - Peaches and Pixie Geldof's favourite club.

When she finally left at 2.30am, she was wrapped up in a coat and scarf with her formerly pristine hair hanging in front of her face.

Since turning 18 last April, Emma has become a regular on the London party scene, as well as becoming a popular celebrity in the front row of fashion shows in the capital and across the channel in Paris.

Despite her newfound social status and nights out at top London clubs, Emma insisted she's no party girl.

She told the Mail on Sunday's Live magazine: 'I’m not tempted by parties or drugs. I don’t actually like being drunk, particularly in public.

'But I do understand why people get sucked into a party lifestyle. I can see how it happens so I’d never criticise someone who gets into all that. It can get pretty tough.'
Her choice of short dress last night contradicted a recent claim by Emma that she'd 'never go out in a mini-skirt'.
Since becoming an official adult, Emma has been reluctant to see herself painted as a sex symbol in the media.
She said: 'I know everyone wants a picture of me in a miniskirt.
'But that's not me. It's nothing to do with protecting the Hermione image. I'd never go out in a miniskirt.'

Emma is currently taking time out of education after completing her A levels last year and is hoping to go university in the near future.
She said: 'I actually think going to university will make me a better actress.
'The experience of living like that, working to deadlines, living with other students. It’s all the things I want.
'There are actresses who don’t know about things like doing their own laundry and getting a bus. I’m not going to be like that.'
Meanwhile, Emma has reportedly been approached by Greenpeace to become an ambassador for the environmental charity.
A Greenpeace spokesman said: 'Emma would be perfect for us. She's posh, pretty, brainy and committed. She's also not too star struck to care if it's seen as vaguely controversial. She would really help.'Emma will next to be seen playing Hermione Granger in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince in July.
