The "Splash" star has a menagerie of rescued pets at her solar-powered farm - and she'd prefer to spend time with her animals than on a movie set. She says, "I have three alpacas, chickens, a few roosters... There's a lot of wildlife near me but that's great because I can see elk and owls and hawks. I'm pretty hands on (with the animals)."

The 49-year-old star continues, "Some of my animals are from shelters, or I hear that someone's going to put some animals down. Usually I try to give them away but the ones I can't give away are the ones I get stuck with."

Dr. Dre Suing Death Row for Unpaid Royalties

February 12, 2010 09:38:31 GMT


Rap legend Dr. Dre is suing the newly acquired Death Row Records over unpaid royalties stemming from his iconic 1992 album "The Chronic". Dre, real name Andre Young, filed a suit against the label at Los Angeles Federal Court on Thursday, February 11, claiming he has not received any further money from album sales since he left the company in 1996, and that the new owners of Death Row Records released a collectors' version of "The Chronic", as well as a greatest hits record, without his consent.

Young's lawyer claims in the suit that WIDEawake, part of music publisher EverGreen which acquired the assets of the label last year, did not have the correct rights to sell the album - because digital distribution was not part of his original contract back in the early 1990s. In a statement to the judge, Young's lawyer Howard King says, "When it came to paying artist royalties and honouring limits on Dr. Dre recordings that could be released, the "new" Death Row Records, to quote our client, 'forgot about Dre'. This lawsuit will make sure they remember."

The Hollywood actor stars in Martin Scorsese's new thriller "Shutter Island", and studied mental illness for his role as a detective trying to solve a missing persons mystery in an asylum.

Warner Bros. Pictures has announced new release date for "The Losers". As reported by Box Office Mojo, the action drama film which was originally scheduled for April 9 release is bumped back for almost two months as it is now set to hit U.S. theaters on June 4. This flick now will arrive in theaters just one week earlier than similar former-soldiers-themed movie, "The A-Team", which will be dropped by The 20th Century Fox on June 11.

It is possible that "The Losers" is moved to give more space to another Warner Bros.' film, "Clash of the Titans", which has been recently pushed back to April 2. This Sam Worthington's epic movie was initially slated for March 26 U.S. release but the studio needs more time in pre-production since they have just decided to convert the film into 3-D.

February 12, 2010 04:05:07 GMT


Original Public Image Ltd. bassist Jah Wobble turned down the chance to rejoin his bandmates on tour because he's convinced Sex Pistols singer John Lydon only reformed the group to make "money." Lydon created the group in 1978 after the Sex Pistols split, but the band has been on hiatus since 1992.

The star announced in 2009 he would be resurrecting the group for a series of dates in December that year and several music festivals throughout 2010, but Wobble refused to reprise his role in PiL. He says, "I was asked last July and I definitely did think about it and talk about it to an extent, but it just wasn't the right move for me. It just wasn't the way I would do it. I don't care, I think it's great and I'm not bothered at all."
