When questioned about her experience working with the teen queen FondaÂ revealed,Â ”…Lindsay — who I love dearly — she’s Lindsay Lohan. I just want to take her in my arms and hold her until she’s grown up. She’s so young, so young and she’s so alone out there in the world in terms of structure and people to nurture her.
“She is so talented…oh my gosh she can access emotion like nothing. And she just makes me cry. She made me cry a lot and when she was on the set she was really good, it’s going to be a good movie.”
On Lohan’s well-documented tardiness & partying JaneÂ said, “She parties all the time …you know she’s young and she can get away with it. You know it’s hard after a while to party very hard and work very hard. She’ll learn that.”
“I think every once in a while a very, very young person who is burning both ends of the candle needs to have somebody say, ‘You know your going to pay the piper — you better slow down,’ so I think it was good.”
Fonda’sÂ lastÂ piece of advice for Lohan,Â ”I’d want to say to her that this is not a dress rehearsal. This is it. If you blow it, you don’t get a second chance.”

Original reports stated that Daniel’s death had nothing to do with drugs.Â The autopsy was completed Monday evening, with official results still pending, but rumors are circulating that the young man overdosed while in his hotel room in the Bahamas.
Daniel had flown shortly after mom Anna Nicole gave birth to a daughter Thursday.Â Apparently Daniel hadÂ various medications in his systemÂ and was vomiting uncontrollably right before he collapsed and died.
A source close to the family stated, “All we know right now is that he was on anti-depressants. Some things indicate that he probably overdosed on those drugs.”

Death of a President, the fictional documentary by British director/creator Gabriel Range, is set to be released in the United States.Â One of the most talked-about movies from the Toronto Film FestivalÂ has sold the distributionÂ rights to Newmarket Films.Â This will not be the first provocative film the company has handled, Mel GibsonÂ used Newmarket to distribute The Passion of the Christ.
Nemarket reportedly paid $1 million for Death of a President and is expected to release the film in the US in the coming months.Â The movie is set around events that eventually culminate in the assassination of President George W Bush.Â Maybe a good holiday movie?
The film was shot as if it were a TV documentary, although, obviously the events are fictional.Â Range used film stock from three visits President Bush made to Chicago.Â The movie opens with demonstrations in Chicago against Bush as he visits the city in 2007.Â As the US President is leaving a hotel after giving a speech, he is shot by a sniper.
In an interview Range explained audience reaction, “The reaction of the general public was very good.
“People didn’t know what to expect. Our film has a very striking premise but it is not sensational or gratuitous. I hope people will see it as a balanced film and compelling drama. It is an oblique look at the ways the United States has changed since 9/11. We use the lens of the future to explain the past.”
“We portrayed the horror of assassination. … I don’t think anyone would get the idea of assassinating Bush from this film,” Range said. Â
Hollywood legend Kevin Costner, on the other hand, was negatively affected by the assassination film.
He says, “It’s awfully hard if you’re his children, his wife, his mother, his dad; there’s a certain thing we can’t lose as human beings, which is empathy for maybe the hardest job in the world.
“Whether we think it’s being performed right or not we can’t, like, wish…or think that’s even cute.”
Ever the patriot, Costner.Â Well, I suppose he has played enough of the American hero roles…

John Mayer spoke outÂ for the first time lst nightÂ in an interview with Access Hollywood.Â The 28-year-old singer/songwriter beats around the bush when it comes to fessing up to dating or notÂ datingÂ sexy blonde Jessica Simpson.Â But, according toÂ Us Weekly,Â Mayer assures fans thatÂ ”heâ€™ll continue to make music for everyone else to have sex to.”
Here is John & Access Hollywood‘s Nancy O’Dell now.
Nancy: â€œHow do you react when you’ve been so much in the public eye, because of this relationship, whether it happened or not, so in a way, it’s not bad publicityâ€¦â€
John: â€œThere’s nothing about it at all that I wake up in the morning and go to bed at night and say to myself, “Hmm, it’s kind of got a shiny edge to it.” There’s nothing about it that’s interesting to me or fascinating with me. I wanna get where I wanna get because I got better on the guitar.â€
Nancy: â€œWas it so bent? That you never even dated Jessica?â€
John: â€œI want to acknowledge that there’s two separate things happening. There’s the home life that I defend as a guy whoâ€™s just here to play music, and you don’t see me on red carpets like this…and like that.â€
Nancy: â€œYou don’t even go to red carpets.â€
John: â€œDon’t go to red carpets. So itâ€™s very odd for me and I just basically — itâ€™s very uncomfortable for me.â€
â€œ… There are real crises in the world; there are people who are fighting to keep their house warm and I’m not going to sit here and bite my nails because someone says that I might possibly have gone a date with a beautiful blond girl.
“I’m not going to sit here beating myself up over the head with it. But what is challenging to me is that I have a contract with my audience in a way, that I exist– I’m their guy who’s just here to play music, you know, and that has never changed. That has certainly not changed in the last 2 weeks and I’m here to play music, you know?â€
Nancy: â€œDo you feel like it takes away from the music?â€
Nancy: â€œBut there are the people that would go, now they’re more fascinated with you and they may go out and get your album because they’re fascinated with your relationship.â€
John: â€œIn my mind, that’s cheating.â€
Ummmm, in my mind, John, that’s more money in the bank & I think you know that, wise one.

FuscoÂ basically feels like theÂ restÂ of us, calling Paris “annoying” and having no talent at all.
Fusco illuminates, “I don’t think there’s any talent there. My biggest problem with Paris was that she was always late on the set. It became very annoying. Everyone gets tired.
“By the time Paris finally showed up, she was usually coming from a party. She never memorized her lines. So now, not only does she show up late, but on top of it she didn’t have her lines ready to go.
“It was a very long day working with Paris.”
Poor, poor rich Paris.Â Can’t she pay someone to memorize her lines?

AfterÂ giving birth to a healthy 6 pound,Â 9 once baby girl in the Bahamas Thursday, Anna Nicole Smith has had to switch from joy to sadness as her 20-year-old son was found dead Sunday morning.
Former Playboy playmate 38-year-old Smith is said to be in deep mourning over the death of her son Daniel Wayne Smith.Â Authorities have yet to determine the cause of death, only that he died suddenlyÂ ”in his bed.”
A spokesperson for Nicole issued the following statement, “We have yet to learn the cause of death but do not believe that drugs or alcohol were a factor.”
“Anna Nicole is absolutely devastated by the loss of her son. He was her pride and joy and an amazing human being.”
Daniel Smith had traveled to the Bahamas “to share in the joy of his baby sister,” the statement read.
“Please do not make any press inquiries at this time so that Anna Nicole can grieve in peace.”
The late Smith had bit roles in Nicole’s movies Skyscraper & To the Limit.Â He also appeared several times on the Anna Nicole Show.

As the two top-rated teams in college football went head to head this weekend, it was me that was left wanting.Â Ohio State & the University of Texas dueled it out Saturday with an end score of 24 – 7, with Ohio State snatching the title of number one in college football.
Matthew McConaughey, a Texas graduate &Â an avid football fan, tookÂ to the field an average Joe.Â Or in this case, an average, cheeringÂ homeless Joe.Â So much money & so much bad taste- what are we going to do with Matthew?Â I have to say, it’s the first time in a while since we’ve seen him without hisÂ brothers in facial hair crime,Â Jake & Lance.
Hoping this Monday morning photographs will make you stop and think, “Man, I’m not looking tooÂ bad after all.”

I know we’ve been saturated with this Paris Hilton DUI arrest but I thought it might be intesting to look at the Hilton & Ryan Seacrest transcript from Thursday.
Fresh from a DUI bust, see pics at Pink Is The New Blog, Paris called On the Air with Ryan Seacrest bright-eyed & bushy-tailed early Thursday morning to try & explain herself to Seacrest.Â Here they are now, thanks to US Weekly.
Ryan Seacrest: “Paris, what happened?”
Paris Hilton: “You know what? It was nothing. I’ve been shooting my new music video for my new song ‘Nothing in This World.’”
RS: “So, you’re shooting those full days. Because when you do a music video its like a 24 hour day.”
PH: “Yeah. I got off last night at 10 p.m. So then I went and had dinner with my sister and all my girlfriends and then we went to this charity event that Dave Navarro threw for brain tumors.”
PH: “And I had one margarita. Starving ’cause I had not ate all day. On my way to In ‘N Out, which is probably three blocks away. And I’m in my SLR, which is a little fastâ€¦So maybe I was speeding a little bit
[Laughs]. And I got pulled overâ€¦. I was just really hungry and I wanted to have an In ‘N Out burger!
RS: “So they pull you over, which the cops have done many, many times and what’d they say to you?”
PH: “They just said, ‘You were driving fast.’”
RS: “But then LAPD, the Hollywood division, took you in?”
PH: “Yeah. There was a lot of paparazzi around so I think they were trying to make a statement. And they even said, “You know, there’s people watching. We don’t want them to think we’re giving special treatment.”
Female radio cohost: “It’s the lead story! It’s before the President. You were before the President!”
PH: “Oh my goodness. Everything I do is blown out of proportion. It really hurts my feelings.”
Female radio cohost: “Did you ever get the burger? I don’t think you did!”
PH: “No and I had some pancakes just now that I cooked so that made up for it.”
RS: “So just to be clear, because a lot of people are going to see this story today, there is no DUI charge for Paris Hilton? I mean, that’s the bottom line — no charge.”
PH: “Yeah. They were really nice and it was cool and they understood that I had been working all day.”
RS: “They got all these photographers outside your house when you were coming home from the police department and I got to tell you, you looked pretty hot at that hour.”
PH: “Thank you [Laughs]. For being up since 5 a.m. working all day, that’s a big compliment!”
But hot with brains, now that’s a different story, Paris.

We can now all go back to our life, teen queen Lindsay Lohan will be able to hold & cherish her orange Hermes Birkin bag once again.
A Metro Police spokeswoman has just announced, “A member of the public contacted us to say they had found it and brought it in.”
“We have not yet established what, if anything, is missing.”
We can all breathe a little easier knowing that Lindsay Lohan has been reunited with the orange monster bag.Â And it feels so good.
Posted by Allison as Mischief & Mayhem at 8:00 AM EST on Sep, 08 2006
After running around in Venice, Italy this week with her man Harry Morton, Lindsay Lohan was on her way back to the States when she had her favorite, orange Birkin bag stolen at London’s Heathrow Airport.
Lohan’s Hermes Birkin bag reportedly contained over $1 million in jewelry, dumbass, and was stolen at Heathrow Airport Thursday afternoon.Â Scotland Yard confirmed the incident only by stating, “theft of a bag at Heathrow Airport was reported to police by a 20-year-old woman.”
Apparently as Lindsay was leaving the Terminal One building, the teen queen noticed that the orange bag was missing from the suitcase trolley.Â You know if I was travelingÂ withÂ a bag full of $1 million in jewelry, I can guarantee you that it would never get misplaced or lost or stolen- because I would never be that much of a dumbass in the first place or it would be handcuffed to my right wrist.Â Â
Leslie Sloane, Lohan’s rep, confirmed the theft & expressed that Lohan is extremely upset over the theft. “She is begging for the return of the items,” Sloane stated. “She doesn’t care how she gets them back, she just wants her stuff back.”
Reportedly the bag also containedÂ cash, jewelry, passport & cashmere sweater.Â The cost of the bag alone is around $5,000.Â Lohan is calling friends hystericallyÂ over the incident.Â Â I guess she’s calling toÂ tell them what a dumbass she is?
Scotland Yard is looking into the matter but have no suspects, as of yet.

With more news surrounding the tragic death of Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin, I thought we’d do an update.Â OK,Â I have a soft spot for the guy, it was a better world with him in it, thanÂ out of it.Â I promise, no more after this one.
It looks like Irwin was trying to get a quick shot with him around the Australian Great Barrier Reef to help his eight-year-old daughterÂ Bindi’sÂ TV show.Â Bindi is to star in a new show for the Discovery Kids channel next year & Steve wanted to take the opportunity to give her a few good underwater shots.
Steve was co-hosting an Animal Planer special called The Ocean’s Deadliest with famed oceanographer Philippe Cousteau when Irwin took a break from filming to do a special piece for his daughter’s show.
His manager John Stainton explains, “His daughter’s doing a new show for Discovery Kids next year and wherever we get the opportunity we pick up quick little stories with Steve for her.
“He said, ‘I’ll just take the rubber duckie and go out and see if we can get some coral and fish and rays and stuff like that–just to do a soft segment for kids.’
“I saw him go off, he had the crew and the boat crew in with him and a cameraman… The next thing we heard this call coming in out of the ship’s radio that there’d been an emergency.
“It was a blur as to what was happening, I didn’t know who was hurt. I obviously did not think it was Steve. I thought he was invincible.
“In my heart, I think he was dead when he was in the rubber duckie, I don’t think he was alive.”
Sadly enough, conservationalist & naturalist Steve Irwin was given a warning about the dangers of stingrays & their barbed tails the day before he himself suffered a bard to the heart & died.Â
Irwin & Stainton were aboard Steve’s boat Croc One when an expert from a nearby university lectured the crew about ray safety.
The sad, sad irony- which wasn’t lost on Stainton, “He was very used to them and in a lot of parts of the world tourists go into the water and hand feed them and let them crawl over them.
“It was only the day before with Jamie, our doctor that was onboard–who’s an expert from the University of James Cook Union North Queensland–that we talked about stingrays and the effect of the barb.
“It was so ironic that we would actually have this conversation the day before (he died). I related a story where a friend of mine had got a barb through his leg.”
Posted by Allison as Conscience & Morality Tales, Tom Cruise- Only a Matter of Time Before He Kills Me at 8:00 AM EST on Sep, 07 2006
Katie Holmes has spokenÂ out in the latest edition of Vanity Fair.Â Â AlongÂ with the first photographs of her & Tom Cruise’s daughter Suri, Holmes has revealed to the publicationÂ how the media made her feel during the much-covered pregnancy & after.
The October edition of Vanity Fair features the first printed photos of five-month-old Suri, as posted yesterday, and also gives us a glimpse into the mind of Kate.
The 27-year-old tellsÂ VanityÂ that the gossip surrounding her family, “eats away at me because it’s just not okay… Some of the crap that’s out there–the stuff that’s said about my parents and my siblings (implying that they didn’t approve of her relationship with Cruise)–it’s really frustrating the amount of s**t that’s out there.
“And the stuff they say about Suri? You shouldn’t say that about us, and you can’t say that about my child.”
Holmes stated that the reason she even reads tabloids is because, “This is my future. This is my family, and I care so much about them.
“To see how someone as caring and good as Tom is–to see how things just get so twisted and turned around. I mean, where does it come from?”
When Katie was pregnant with Suri, she said she was humiliated by the media stating, ” (I) was overjoyed being pregnant, and then had to withstand ridicule about my pregnancy when it was the most normal, non-controversial thing imaginable.”
Poor Katie.Â But I have to say, she asked for it when she got with the craziest loon in Hollywood, the Cruisester.
