It was the week where a lot of New York City did not have phone coverage in the wake of the superstorm. Multi-tasking.

While Reese Witherspoon and Robert Pattinson, two top earning box office stars of 2011, canoodle for their latest Water for Elephants poster, Nicole Kidman in a rare moment, shares insights in to her decade married to Tom Cruise.
Says Nicole of their marriage, “I was never seeking to be a celebrity. But I was prepared to do that for love…It’s hard when you’re young. But I’m ready to give up anything for love, because ultimately, that is what you have.”
On damages: [via the UK Daily Mail] ”I knew he was a really big star, but after a while, to get to a real place in a relationship, that has to wear off. As a couple we were very private. We were not out a lot and we were very, very tight and that’s why we lasted ten years, which is a good amount of time, particularly when you get married at 23. That was a great relationship. It was great,’ she adds. ‘I think it ran its course.
Nicole Kidman admits she was unsure she would ever find love again after her high profile split with Tom Cruise ten years ago.
“I was really damaged and not sure whether that was ever going to happen again to me,” Kidman reveals in this month’s UK Marie Claire magazine.
[It's a good thing Nicole is being so sweet regarding Tom, because Cruise gave Kidman a half billion dollar divorce settlement, when they'd run their course together. How could Nicole see Tom any other way. It was of the main reasons why Hollywood is still listening to Nicole Kidman at 43 share her Pearls of wisdom as a leading light of this industry town. He may get a rough deal by press, may have never won himself an Oscar either, but Tom was very fair].
On her marriage to country Kiwi star Keith Urban, Kidman says: “I’m crazy in love,” she says. “I think you can live anywhere and do anything when you’re crazy in love. I’m very driven by falling in love. I fall in love and I’ll drop everything and change everything.”
On having more babies: “More.”

Reese and Tim nipped out for a quick bite in Brentwood last night.
It must be love if this new star couple are dining in family oriented cosy Brentwood. Cute.
Reese must have a lot on her plate, because Tim looks like he’s enjoying his increased spotlight with his colgate American smile all shiny for the cameras while the lovely Reese just looks, well… totally shagged really!
It happens. Must have been the camera angle, on this one pic.

I saw this tee shirt today at Urban Outfitters and it made me laugh-out-loud. I don’t know whether it was the reference to The Hangover film franchises funny sense of humor – or, if it was because ‘Breeders are US’ is Hollywood’s big message in 2011 in all forms of entertainment. I do like that message in America. It’s a good one.
One thing is for sure, if you wear this tee shirt – you’re a chick magnate – that’s a given. Guys, hide the sperm cells in the family vault, until you’re ready to be a father, not a donor. And, wear this tee shirt to bars or rehab meetings, at beach bbq’s after surfing Cali’s beaut beaches and the rainbow of baby showers coming up this year.

Sadie & Lawrin are in on our top celebrity news from Hollywood at this minute. Sadie is a budding screenwriter and her momma is a coffee buddy of mine in L.A. Lawrin is the director of the http://www.LAComedyFest.com. She works with a lot of talented stand up comics and funny filmmakers too. She’s a multi-tasking working mom of America. Already as a kid growing up in California – Sadie’s telling her mom her latest movie idea. It involves a lot of blood – much to mom (Lawrin’s) horror. Lawrin can’t stand the sight of human blood onscreen. Sadie’s first TVC for a major ‘multi-national conglomerate corp’ drops next week. Stay tuned for that on your TV. LA kids, they’re full on talented!
Sadie is too cute. Celebrity entertainment news from the City of Angels today (is coming up, stay tuned):

General Motors takes a stand against Skins in MTV. Nice one! No advertising.

What Hollywood star wants to not marry?
Kerre Woodham has fun ‘white girl bashing’ – the easiest Maori target – like popping open an Aussie beer with a black horse on it, on a stolen beach in summer! Loved the commentary though. Was funny for a lazy writer! Though I wish white men would do their own dirty work, don’t you Kerre? Woodham remains one of my most favorite castrating comedians in the game though. She’s always good for that for the white lads. Next generation of white girl Kiwi comics please! It’s time. Kerre would fare well dating a Fijian boyfriend about now, to look less racist in her shared habitat of Aotearoa-New Zealand, from Los Angeles. Just sayin!

[Celebrity news with thanks to Pop Eater and Ms. Lavandeira today].
“I’m very happy for both Reese and Jim.”I wish nothing but the best for the mother of my children.”–Ryan Phillipe congratulates Reese Witherspoon on her decision to marry her agent Jim Roth –New York Daily News.
All I can say is–Jim must be a better agent then we all thought in the H-Wood hood. Congrats. A nice switch up for Reese in getting ready for Natalie Portman and Annette Benning‘s potential Oscars face-off in 2011. If the nod goes Benning’s way–Jerry Brown, Governor-elect of Cali and his camp of backers will be more than stoked. If it goes Portman’s way (and you always need a strong contender to create a strong newly annointed Queen as in Annette putting her face forward for Nat’s Oscar’s bid)–than Portman is our newly anointed Angelina Jolie Queen-Peer of Tinsel Town. As there can only ever be one unique individual as Jolie is.
Either way, Reese and her camp and ensuring they’re looking the part. Engaged and preferably preggers is the Oscars trend for 2011 as Portman is in both situations right now as Hollywood’s rising star Queen engaged to African-born ballet dancer Benjamin Millepied. America needs to breed and get married again. That all sort of stopped the last two or three years. Economic stress is a total romance buzz killer. Whoever thought that up – should show their faces I reckon!
Isn’t Ryan Phillipe such a gentleman. That’s the spirit. Reese’s long time agent, Steve Dontanville is going to be stoked at Reese’s future husband’s occupation. Steve had signed Reese as a child actor. American stars getting married again aligns with the uber-trend of event of the year next year that being the wedding of Prince William Windsor to Kate Middleton. Huge, global romances as a trend, coming up! It appears that Portman and Millepied have been given the nod to give Wills and Kate a reflected run for their wedding money. Nice one! Portman’s mom and agent Shelley Stevens is believed to be ecstatic. But really this blog post is about Reese and Jim’s engagement joy per se. As these two live in Hollywood, a Jewish show biz town, I’m sure they won’t mind some scotch and a Rabbi having a world on this ‘big royal romance’ trend. :)
Writes Rabbi Jason Blog: “While Cyberspace is buzzing about whether Natalie Portman’s beau is a “Member of the Tribe” or not (ABC News reports his faith is unknown), New York City-based writer Marla Garfield is working the conspiracy theory angle. She wrote on Facebook: “I doubt that Millepied is even that guy’s real last name. In French, it means ‘a thousand feet,’ and the dude plays a dancer in ‘Black Swan.’ That’s just too ridiculous to be real. I bet his last name is Schwartzenbergerfeldowitz or something.” Lol!
To celebrate the moment, I guess this would call for some Doublewood Scotch Whiskey of The Balvenie Distillery of Scottish fame. The Doublewood is described as: “The Balvenie DoubleWood is a 12 year old single malt which gains its distinctive character from being matured in two woods. Over its period of maturation it is transferred from a traditional oak whisky cask to a first fill European oak sherry cask. Each stage lends different qualities to the resulting single malt ~ the traditional casks soften and add character, whilst the sherry wood brings depth and fullness of flavour.”

Water for Elephants will have to be quenched one week later than anticipated at the box office.
Fox has changed the release date for the film — starring Reese Witherspoon and Robert Pattinson — from April 15 to the 22.
I wonder what films are dropping like they’re hot in Hollywood on the 15th then to make Water have it’s new debut date. Interesting stuff.

Entertainment Weekly has the scoop of how Reese Witherspoon describes meeting President Obama. “Absolutely tongue tied.”
On a tour of the White House with actor Paul Rudd, Reese was told: ‘the President wants to see you.’
“We went to the Oval Office, and there was Hillary Clinton having a meeting with Joe Biden. It was insane. Then Obama came out and he turned to Paul and said, I loved you in I Love You, Man. Paul was like, ‘I’m freaking out!’”
The President then asked Reese what she was up to in Washington. Trying to speak with him was overwhelming.
‘We’re doing a movie and…uh, I’m playing a character, who, uh…I’m working with Owen, uh…Owen… (I could not remember Owen’s last name. And Paul goes, ‘Wilson!’ Like it was a party game”).

REESE WITHERSPOON IN LIKE WATER FOR ELEPHANTS HEATS UP ROBERT PATTINSON’S FIRST OSCAR NOMINATIONS HOPES
Reese Witherspoon and Robert Pattinson start their movie publicity for Water for Elephants via Germany of all places. It is the nation with the strongest dollar in the world right now, so maybe that’s a smart move on the Hollywood chess board.
They look good together. Cougar chemistry from Reesey.
Water for Elephants is the film based on the book, of when a veterinary student joins the circus and undergoes an internship of the heart while a locum. Surreal setting, like a Britney Spears concert with the potential to make $200 million plus. Spears has already proven a circus theme sells tickets.
Will this be Pattinson’s first Oscar nominated role? With a royal wedding from the UK about to be the most watched event on the planet this decade next year, for Pattinson, this has to be his debut Oscar nominated performance. It has to be Robbo’s Oscar momento, simply because the global pop cultural landscape–would have moved slightly more the UK’s way after Will and Kate’s wedding. To not include Pattinson in an Oscar line up of leading lads following next year–will make the Oscars look irrelevant.
Nice of Reese to help Pattinson out with her proven Oscar glow. No stars are born stars alone, they are made as well. This pairing is one such example. Britain and the American South–not a bad combo! With elephants from Africa and India, I wonder if there will be Russian Smokey The Bears too in this circus movie or White Chinese water tigers as well. Expect this to be a cinematic zoo of color and show biz lights underneath a big top circus tent. Two A-Listed trapeze stars, on top of the world – who walk the line. Hot.

“She has a young Reese Witherspoon look and fresh-faced appeal about her as a potential child-actor of the future in Hollywood”–Horiwood on Hinetaapora Short.
A Diverse View of Hollywood worthy new talent potential:
Should Hinetaaporo Short, 10, be cast as the next Milky Bar Kid!
One of this kid’s X-factors in the entertainment game already, is that Hinetaapora speaks Te Reo Rangatira – The Language of Chiefs - otherwise known as the Maori language of New Zealand) each day, at her Kura Kaupapa school in Roto-Vegas/ Rotorua, Hiobbit country.
Te Reo Rangatira is one of the two official languages that Middle Earth, New Zealand protects and speaks within its shores.
Should Hinetaapora be the Milky Bar Kid for chocolate makers Nestle? Heck yes! What a bilingual, intelligent and talented cutie pai. Adorable. The Milky Bar Kid is a New Zealand child’s ‘super hero’ figure of inspiring Adventure and fun adventuring activities with friends and community–the great Kiwi Way. Just like Hobbits represent such cultural heroes too. A Maori girl super hero? Heck yes! It’s time. What a splendid idea at updating Kiwi pop culture in the 2010′s.
Will Hinetaapora go on to appear in Hobbit in 3D films in Wellywood too and Hollywood? I hope so! She’s a doll.
Go honey! Mauri ‘Ola from Hollywood. Let’s hope Hinetaapora can sign on to the same Hollywood agent as Oscar nominee, Keisha Castle Hughes. My Hollywood agent recommend though for Hinetaapora’s Hollywood acting hopes, is agent: Steve Dontanville. –the agent behind Reese Witherspoon’s acting career in Reese’s initial early years until two years before Reese won her Oscar.
Imagine Hinetaapora Short in a 3D action adventure film? Could she be another Reese Witherspoon, with the potential to win an Oscar too? Only time will tell. But, go kotiro tutu! I love her chutzpah. This kid has spirit. She’s off to a good start at ten years-of-age.
UPDATE: Hinetaapora Short is on the Nestle casting team’s Top Ten Short List at this minute. Go honey! You have Hollywood’s big tick approval. The gorgeous Hinetaapora short is a descendant of the Te Whanau a Hinetaaporo subtribe (Haapu) of Ngati Porou. She also descends from the Te Arawa iwi of Aotearoa/ New Zealand. The same tribe as famed and globally-loved entertainer, the late Sir Howard Morrison. The son of a Maori All Black rugby football star, Temuera Morrison , Sir Howard’s song My Old Man’s An All Black - combated and addressed apartheid in South Africa back in the day. He’s still a legend in hearts and minds today. Good Kiwi Ambassadors and proven entertainment stock are the performance artists of this tribe. They do the right things with their fame for noble humanitarian causes.
Hinetaapora’s Te Arawa tribe are watched by globe-trotting visitors to New Zealand, every day of the week in Rotorua City when they perform live daily as consummate and gifted entertainers. They star in musical theater showcases daily and have been practicing mau rakau (traditional Maori martial arts) for over a thousand years in New Zealand on Mokoia Island. As warriors in performance, they are New Zealand’s indigenous action stars. Very similar to Japanese samurai or Old-World warriors of the Chinese Empire dynasty too. Sir Howard, their much loved late Entertainer king, is pictured wearing his cowboy hat above.
Courage to imagine, see and be true to… yourself.
Message to H.S: Mihi atu ki a koe Hinetaapora… are you practicing your American accent and learning Chinese each morning for Hong Kong filmmaking, 3D action movie/ co-productions in future years, before school? Hope so! Ka rawe! Tino pai kē! Kid, you’re too much! :)
