Leonardo DiCaprio is set to become the latest celebrity to get seriously skinny for a film role. The movie hunk faces a weighty battle to lose a pile of pounds for his new movie Inception, which has been written by The Dark Knight director Christopher Nolan.
A set insider tells RadarOnline.com, "There's an action scene coming up at the end of the year in which he needs to appear emaciated, so the pressure is on. Leo isn't the kind of guy who can just lose a radical amount of weight... He's following a strict diet and is embarking on a rigorous workout regime. Leo's a pretty determined kind of guy, when he sets his mind to things he always achieves them. Though this is going to be hard for him, you can guarantee he'll succeed."

sure that she was on the phone with Doug when we snapped her breezing

LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Contrary
to an online report, Jason Biggs has not been attacked by a Gibraltar
ape while on vacation on the island, his rep told Access Hollywood.
“Jason’s in LA, had a meeting yesterday with his agents,” the rep told Access. “Not everything on the Internet is true.”
Earlier on Thursday, the UK’s Telegraph
reported that the star had gone sightseeing in Gibraltar, only to find
himself face-to-face with a Barbary macaque that “tried to bite his
face off.” There are reportedly some 200 “Barbary apes” in Gibraltar –
a species native to North Africa and brought to the British territory
by soldiers in the 18th century.
The erroneous report comes at
the same time as the 10th anniversary of Biggs’ breakthrough role, as a
sex-challenged teenager who had a different close encounter – with the
title desert — in the comedy “American Pie.”

Britney Spears has called off her romance with her longtime agent Jason Trawick, according to a new report.
The singer is said to have asked Trawick for some time for herself after the couple's relationship began to turn serious as he accompanied the pop star on her Circus world tour.
Spears was even rumored to have been engaged to Trawick earlier this month after she was photographed with a sparkling ring on her wedding finger - but the 27 year old has now taken a break from their love affair, reports OKmagazine.com. One source tells the website, "They are taking some time apart," while another adds, "She told him she needed to get back on her own two feet before moving forward. Jason was disappointed, but he understood."
Trawick was spotted entertaining a group of female admirers during a night out in Hollywood last weekend as Spears prepared to perform three consecutive concerts at New York's Madison Square Garden.
But the insider suggests it might not be the end for the couple, adding, "Jason's always loved her, (even) since the Justin Timberlake days, so he won't let her go easily. He's giving her space - that's what she's asked for."

Founded by choreographer Robin Antin
in 1995, the Pussycat Dolls began as a burlesque dance revue based in
Los Angeles, spawned a second revue in Las Vegas, grew into an A-list
phenomena with a revolving cast of guest celebrities, and eventually
became a recording act with a number one dance hit. It wasn't long
after launching its revue that the troupe began attracting actresses
and models who wanted to become a Pussycat Doll for a night. Christina Aguilera, Pamela Anderson, Kelly Osbourne, Pink, Britney Spears, Carmen Electra, and Gwen Stefani
are just some of the names who donned lingerie and pinup costumes and
joined the Dolls for their flirtatious shows. An appearance in the 2003
film Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle was followed by numerous
television appearances, most with Carmen Electra. Capitalizing on the nationwide attention and the addition of former Eden's Crush member Nicole Scherzinger as lead singer, the single "Don't Cha" with special guest Busta Rhymes
appeared at the beginning of 2005 and climbed to number two on the pop
chart, number one on the dance chart. With help from the Black Eyed
Peas' will.i.am and producer Timbaland,
the Pussycat Dolls recorded their full-length debut. The A&M label
released PCD, a Top Ten hit, in the summer of 2005. In 2008 member Carmit Bachar left to pursue a solo career while the Interscope label announced that a solo album from Scherzinger
was being put on hold after four teaser singles failed to climb the
charts. Continuing on as a five-piece, the Dolls released both the
single "When I Grow Up" and the album Doll Domination that same year. "When I Grow Up" reached the Top Ten in 16 countries. David Jeffries, All Music Guide
