In Touch: Scarlett Johansson wants to date Bradley Cooper now

Sunday, June 26, 2011

This story is a perfect storm of simultaneously single actors coupled with the easy target of Bradley Cooper and yet another opportunity to use the photo of Scarlett Johansson’s wonk foot at the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner. When Kaiser first wrote about that swanky event, she astutely took note of this photo of Scarlett in profile: “Yes, that’s Bradley Cooper! SCANDAL.” Well, she totally called it, for the tabloids are duly (and belatedly) making crap up about it.
If you’ll remember correctly, Scarlett attended this soiree with her then (weave-wearing) boyfriend, Sean Penn, where he reportedly also told her to go back to school. However, InTouch now seems to believe that Scarlett had already mentally broken up with Penn at that point and was furiously flirting with Bradley, who just happens to be her co-star from She’s Just Not That Into You. Naturally, the tabloid makes ScarJo out to be a very needy woman, which seems rather unlikely to me:
Newly single — and terrified of being alone — Scarlett Johansson sets her sights on Bradley Cooper.
Only a few weeks after breaking up with Sean Penn, Scarlett Johansson is already hot for a new guy. And this time, thankfully, she’s not looking for a father figure! According to a friend, the 26-year-old has her eye on none other than her sexy former co-star Bradley Cooper, 36. “She’s wooing him,” her friend explains, “She’s texted him, and they’re planning to meet up soon.”
He’s taking his time
The actors first met a few years ago, when both were involved with other people. Now that they’re single (Bradley recently broke up with longtime girlfriend Renee Zellweger), Scarlett, who is never alone for long, wants to see whether their on-screen spark can be duplicated in real life. “Scarlett likes everything about Bradley,” the friend reveals. And who wouldn’t? “He’s charming and quick-witted.”
So far, surprisingly, Bradley’s been playing hard to get — telling her he’s focusing on his career right now — but Scarlett’s not so easily thrown off the scent: “She thinks she can change his mind,” the friend confides. After all, can anyone say no to Scarlett for long?

Poor Bradley Cooper. The tabloids just won’t stop matching him up with every one of his female costars. He also has to fend off advances from ex-Italian princesses and journalists who mistake him for an ex-boyfriend. Bradley just can’t catch a break, but I’d actually believe that he wants to focus on his career at present because — let’s face it — the seemingly simple act of checking his voicemail every evening is probably turning out to be a routine nightmare.


Kelsey Grammer & Kayte are already fighting, he “scolds her like a father”

Last week, Kelsey Grammer tried to make a minor stir at the Tony Awards when he brought his new young wife Kayte Walsh as his date, exactly one year after he brought Camille to the Tonys and announced that he was leaving her for his mistress (I think Kayte was pregnant at the time, which she later miscarried). If showing up wasn’t enough, it looks to me like Kayte might be knocked up again - CB agrees that it might be on, mostly because Kelsey pushed about a million quotes to various media outlets on or around the Tonys, all about how he loves being a father and how his marriage is so amazing, etc, etc. So isn’t it funny that Star Magazine has a story about how Kelsey and Kayte were bitching at each other during the Tonys? Ha.
Kelsey Grammer, 56, and his bride of four months, Kayte Walsh, 29, created some drama of their own when they turned out to honor Broadway’s best at the Tony Awards on June 12.
“He was scolding her almost like a father,” an observer tells Star. “At one point the hissed, ‘Do not do this here!’” Still, the father of four - who is locked in a custody battle with his former spouse Camille - appeared to smooth things over with Kayte after they retreated to a nearby restroom together for about five minutes.
“When they walked out, they were smiling as if nothing had happened,” says the observer. “For the rest of the night, when he would have conversations with others, she’d just sit there and not say a peep. It was like she’d been grounded or something!”

Here’s the thing (and let me just gross out many of you): I get the golddigger thing. It’s an option I’ve thought about, and I’m totally one of those women who COULD marry some rich dude who is 30 years older than me. The idea of it doesn’t gross me out at all - in fact, I still see it as a viable option. But if I was going to be some young golddigger married to some old dude, I wouldn’t go for being scolded like a child in public. What’s the point of that? First of all, don’t pick a fight with your rich mark/husband on one of “his” nights. Second thing: when he starts condescending to you, say something like, “Thank God we don’t have a prenup” or “I’ve been meaning to call my divorce attorney.” It really is that easy, Kayte.


Lindsay Price is pregnant with chef Curtis Stone’s baby

The last time I covered a story on Lindsay Price, I noticed that she’d gained a little weight and was wearing looser clothes. I didn’t want to say much about it because she’d just moved in with her boyfriend, Australian celebrity chef Curtis Stone. She’s in a relationship with a damn chef, of course she’s going to gain a little! In that story we had photos of their new home together and it was just my style - modern and airy in a kind of sparse mission style. Anyway I like Lindsay because I know her from the sadly canceled Eastwick, and while I wasn’t that familiar with Curtis a lot of you told me he’s awesome and that you know him from Top Chef Masters. Well the good news is that Lindsay is pregnant! She just moved in with Curtis in April after they’d been dating about a year, so they’re moving fast but not too fast. (This story has them dating since 2009, but in May 2011 she said they’d met thirteen months prior, so that’s 2010.) They’re not engaged yet, but does that matter?
There’s another Hollywood baby on board!
Actress Lindsay Price is pregnant, Us Weekly confirms. The dad is celeb chef Curtis Stone.
It’s the first child for the Beverly Hills 90120 alum, 34, and the Top Chef Masters host, 35. “We couldn’t be more thrilled to be starting a family together,” Stone tells Us. “We are over the moon.”
One pal of the couple tells Us that the Eastwick actress is already showing.
Price and Australia-born Curtis have been dating since 2009

They’re “over the moon!” Michael K at D-Listed always mocks when couples use that phrase. I love that she’s pregnant. Commenters on US’ website are bitching that they’re not married, but does that really matter anymore? Yes it’s a show of commitment but given the divorce rate it doesn’t mean forever. There are plenty of happily unmarried couples. Still, I wouldn’t be surprised to hear that they’re engaged. For some reason I really like this couple and hope they last. They’re incredibly cute together and look so happy. Congratulations to them.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley in sheer Gucci: cute or tragic?

The Transformers: Dark of the Moon cast were promoting their film in Moscow yesterday. If there’s one thing I really miss about Megan Fox, it’s that she could make couture look like a porn star’s cover-up, which is a quality that makes for an interesting red carpet. Rosie Huntington-Whiteley tried to bring the fashion drama, but mostly I find her looks either boring or outright fug. Take this Gucci number, with the sheer skirt and the granny panties. Rosie has a lovely, slim figure and great legs, so I suppose I should find this sexy…? But that horrid greenish-mucus color on top just ruins it.
Earlier in the day, Rosie chose this pink, silk jersey Michael Kors. I like it better than the Gucci, just because the color pops and it compliments her coloring and figure more, in my opinion. But it’s still kind of boring, right? I miss Megan Fox’s porn face!!!
Other people were at the Moscow premiere too - like Patrick Dempsey and his “permanent bitchface” wife, plus a little John Malkovich, who is always welcome, anywhere.


Jessica Simpson is worried that Ashlee guzzles “8 to 10 bottles of wine” a week

Both of the Simpson sisters love their booze. Over the years, Jessica Simpson has had many high-profile nights where she got blitzed and had to be poured into a car by a boyfriend or gay dude (poor Ken Paves). Jessica has tried to make excuses for her boozehound ways, and for the most part, the tabloids don’t really make a thing about it. However, when Jessica’s sister Ashlee split up with Pete Wentz, suddenly there were lots and lots of stories about Ashlee being a raging alcoholic. This is one of those stories - Star Magazineclaims that Jessica is “on a mission” to end Ashlee’s booze-athon which involves Ashlee guzzling 8 to 10 bottles of wine a week.
Jessica Simpson has staged an intervention for her troubled 26-year-old sister, Ashlee. Ashlee is in the middle of a painful split from Fall Out Boy bassist Pete Wentz, 32, with whom she has a 2-year-old son, Bronx. And reportedly, she’s not handling it well.
“Ashlee is downing eight to 10 bottled of wine a week,” a source reveals to Star. “Jessica is on a mission to save Ashlee from self-destructing, and she told her to funnel her angst into songwriting.”
Knee-deep in wedding prep, Jessica has even enlisted her fiancé, Eric Johnson, who has been helping Ashlee craft songs.
“Jessica has also been writing with Ashlee, but refuses to take any professional songwriting credit,” adds another insider. “The biggest reward for Jess will be seeing her baby sister bounce back.”

First of all: that sounds like a lot to me, but I’m not a big wine drinker. Is it possible to consume 8 to 10 bottles a week and it’s perfectly reasonable? I doubt it, but I thought Angelina Jolie was probably hammered after five glasses. Second thing: Is Farty McDrunkFace the best person to conduct this kind of “intervention”? This is like Charlie Sheen going to his brother Emilio and saying, “I’m worried about you, man.” Third: While Ashlee may be depressed over her divorce, I think she’s mourning the death of that relationship by shoving her tongue down some dude’s throat.
Last thing: Ashlee going back to music. I wouldn’t hate it, actually. She gave the acting thing a go and she failed at that - why not go back to music?
