Actress Kate Winslet has decided to give up her acting career for a year to be with her children.Â Winslet recently came to this decision while working on the film Little Children, in which a mother is emotionally & physically disconnected from her child.
“It was very trying to play a mother who basically couldn’t feel close to or look after the needs of her child,” Winslet stated.
“It was disturbing to put myself into that woman’s head and it made me all the more aware of my own responsibilities as a mother.Â It was such a cathartic experience to portray somebody who can’t cope with her life that it reminded me how much I need my own children.”
“That’s why I’ve decided to take a year off to be with the kids and watch them grow and just enjoy the feeling of being very motherly.”
“I’ve done enough good work in my career not to be worried or torn about not working.”
Kate, who has made three films in the past year alone, will be able to take it easy in the following months.Â Maybe she’ll have the best birthday ever this year, the actress turns 31 Thursday.

42-year-old Crash star Matt Dillon has blastedÂ President George W. Bush’s administration’s immigration polices.Â Dillon has accused the leader’s tactics of “denying everything that America stands for.”
Dillon went on to state that he believes that the Bush administration has forgottenÂ theÂ roots of the country and is stunnedÂ by plans to build an actualÂ fence along theÂ U.S. & Mexico borderÂ in order to curb illegal immigrationÂ to the States.
Dillon reveals, “If we deny other people coming to our country then we’re denying everything that America stands for.
“I feel that way especially with our neighbors in Mexico.
“It’s complicated. I don’t have a solution and I don’t pretend to have one.
“We’ve gone backward in many respects.”
I’m glad Matt Dillon has found something worthwhile to be passionate about.

The cocaine coupleÂ were originallyÂ looking into getting married on the grounds of Doherty’s beloved QPR football team, but no an Irish celebration it is.

Tucker stated,Â “They’re very much in love and are planning to either get married here, or at least have their honeymoon in Ireland. They feel very at home here.
“She’s just a very sweet girl who’s very much in love with Pete. He makes her laugh and they’re looking forward to having children soon.”
WTF?Â Moss & Doherty children?Â Ye gods, that would be a nightmare!
OMG, if I had walked past this happy family I would have never in a million years said that was Kelly Taylor from Beverly Hills: 90210.

In Massachusetts Monday a family judge ordered 37-year-old Bobby Brown arrested after he failed to show up at a hearing regarding delinquent child support payments.
Brown’s lawyerÂ statedÂ thatÂ this is aÂ “very difficult time” for Brown, whose wife Whitney Houston filed for separation last month after 14 years of crazyful marriage.Â
“Whether or not he’s going through a divorce doesn’t negate the fact that he still owes child support relative to his two children that he had prior to his marriage,”Â responded Family Court Judge Paula Carey.
According to Kim Ward, the mother of the two children, says Brown owes two months of child support totaling, $11,000.Â Wow,Â those kids must have a lot ofÂ Xbox games for that kind of money.
Brown’s attorney did not say where Bobby isÂ currently residing, although all Celebrific readers know this.Â I think they ought to check the home ofÂ Superhead Karrine Steffans if they want to find the Bobster.Â
Poor Bobby Brown, he had such a lucrative career in the 80s, a cocaine-ridden marriage to Whitney & now the poor lad is penniless without the Houston to get his back.Â Well, hopefully Superhead can give him a leg up, and maybe a little more too.

Pop veteran George Michael was arrested yet again SundayÂ after a traffic incident in London.Â The 43-year-old singer was arrested on a drug-related charge &Â given a warningÂ by police.Â
A Metropolitan Police spokeswoman only stated, “A man was cautioned by police for possession of cannabis.Â He was bailed to return on a date in November, in relation to being unfit to drive.”
Reps for Michael had no comment, surprise.
According to the BBC, the coppers were informer that a car was obstruction traffic.Â After some time an ambulance was summoned & following Michael’s arrest the singer was taken to a west London hospital asÂ aÂ “precautionary measure.”
Kenny Gross, George’s partner, stated after his Michael’s release, “He’s fine and I’ve got him a McDonald’s.”Â Which is apparently what repeat offenders need, McDonalds.Â Makes sense, Ronald always did look a little suspicious.Â
This will make the third arrest for suspicion of drug possession for George.Â In February he was found clumped over the wheel of his automobile in London’s Hyde Park.Â In April, the pop menace struck again when he damage three of his neighbors’ cars with his Range Rover.Â Oops.Â Michael later called the incidents hisÂ “own stupid fault.”
Poor George.Â He really does need to get a hold of himself, oh, I guess he already did that….

Nick Carter has come outÂ (no, not that kind, as of yet anyway) andÂ revealed that he did indeed cheat on ex-girlfriend ParisÂ Hilton with Ashlee Simpson.Â But nice Nick said he only cheated after hearing that Hilton had been sleeping with her House of Wax costar Chad Michael Murray.Â Who, Paris?!Â Why she would never.Â Yeah, right.
TheÂ Backstreet Boy dated Paris for eight months before they split in 2004, hilariously the same month that Murray announced hisÂ engagementÂ to the young One Tree Hill costar Sophia Bush.
Carter revealed his skeletons to PageSix,Â “I’d fallen head-over-heels with this chick. Then, all of a sudden, three months go by and I got people telling me, ‘Nick, you know what Paris is doing to you,’ and I got a little upset.
“So then I just decided to fight back a little bit and started doing my own thing again. The result is I hooked up with Ashlee Simpson. When Paris came back from Australia, they talked to each other and she found out about it.
“So I brought it up to her and said, ‘You know what I did, and now it’s your turn. Why don’t you tell me what you did?’ And she goes, ‘I never did anything! I never cheated on you.’
“I had kind of started to really like Ashlee and I was thinking about the dating stage. Then, before you know it, f**king b**ch-face comes back.
“I got so burnt over that whole Paris s**t with all this swinging and switching. Whatever happened to morals and values?”
Yeah, whatever happened to that,Â Nick?Â It’s not likeÂ you cheated on anyone….Â

I wasÂ left scratchingÂ my head when Eva Longoria’s rep kinda randomly announced Friday that she & Â beau of two yearsÂ Tony Parker were â€œgoing through a difficult time.”Â But we can now leave our head-scratching & say ohhhh.
Famous basketballer Tony Parker was spotted dirty dancing with an ex-girlfriend at the NYC club Marquee.Â Parker was getting it on with the blonde bombshellÂ in front of a lot of celebs.Â Leonardo DiCaprio, Mick Jagger & Bono all saw the sexual action taking place.
AÂ friend of Longoria’s stated, “Eva was devastated when she found out.”
â€œThe blonde was an ex-girlfriend of Tony’s, and they apparently swapped numbers, but he swears nothing else happened. Eva and Tony are talking right now, trying to work things out.”Â
Through her rep, Eva madeÂ the statement, “My loyalty remains with Tony.”
What she forgot to say after that was, “But myÂ furious revenge remains with the blonde.”
