April 06, 2010 10:22:21 GMT


"Avatar" star Zoe Saldana isn't surprised when people assume she's gay - because she's been labeled a lesbian since she was a youngster. The actress is in a long-term relationship with actor Keith Britton, but admits she has often raised questions about her sexuality because she has always had a "very masculine" energy.

She tells Siempre Mujer magazine, "If you want to punish me, send me to get a manicure or dress me in a skirt or shorts, and I would die. But if you dress me in jeans and a button-down blouse, I feel very sexy, feminine and powerful."

John Densmore Wishes He Could Do Something to Help Jim Morrison


April 06, 2010 09:58:05 GMT


Former The Doors' star John Densmore desperately wanted to save his tragic bandmate Jim Morrison before he went too far - but was locked out from his inner circle of friends and enablers. Morrison died in a Paris, France hotel room in 1971 after years of drug and alcohol abuse, and Densmore admits it pained him to watch his friend spiral into a self-destructive hell.

The drummer tried his best to warn Morrison of the fate that awaited him if he didn't change his ways, but, by the time Morrison moved to France, he could no longer reach him. Promoting new Tom DiCillo Doors' documentary "When You're Strange", Densmore says, "No one could get to him. It was like Elvis [Presley]. In fact, Jerry Scheff - the bass player for Elvis, who did 'L.A. Woman' with The Doors - said he was friends with Raquel Welch and she wanted to do a movie with Elvis and he told Elvis it would be a great idea, but she never got through his people to talk to him about it."
