Keira Knightley has said she plans to go to university when she feels her acting career has come to an end.
The Atonement star, who has frequently spoken about her dislike of celebrity and how she’d rather have a fun life than fame, said recently: “Acting is a profession that isn’t going to last for ever so, at some point, I will have to do something else - and that’s fine.”
“I haven’t got a clue what [that something else] is but when I do know, I’ll go back to university, I’ll study something and I’ll become it.”
Pop On The Pop has the full set of photos.
The former hellraiser had a 32-year-old traffic violation on his record, until rock fan and bass guitar player Huckabee offered to wipe his slate clean when he left office last year.
Huckabee - who leads the race to represent the Republican Party in the battle for the White House - reveals, "One of my last acts as governor was to issue a pardon for a traffic violation that he had in 1975 when he and (bandmate) Ronnie Wood were driving through Arkansas. He got pulled over for a reckless-driving charge.
"I was a college student when it happened, and I was so embarrassed. I thought 'Golly, we finally got The Rolling Stones in Arkansas, and what do we do?'
"They played a concert while I was governor, and I was invited backstage to meet the band. I'm having this conversation with Keith, and he's telling me that he'd been in Arkansas before. And I said, 'Keith, I can pardon you and get that off your record. You can have a clean start in Arkansas.'"
Her "Being photographed nude" resolution" probably lasted less..........
Sienna Miller's New Year's resolution to quit smoking lasted less than 48 hours.
The 'Factory Girl' actress is often photographed smoking, and her vow to quit the nicotine sticks has been less successful this year than ever before.
A source close to the star told Britain's Daily Express newspaper: "Sienna makes the same promise every year and breaks the same promise every year. This year she's broken her record for her shortest ever time as a quitter, as she lasted less than 48 hours.
"She blames stress and needing something to do with her hands as the reasons she just can't kick the habit."
Curvy songbird Mariah Carey has slammed her ‘Diva ’ reputation, claiming she’s never been difficult to deal with.
The star claims to be baffled by her reputation for Divaesque behaviour as she’s such a nice person in reality.
"I am baffled, shocked and appalled when I am called a diva,” she moans. “I've never done one diva-ish thing in my life. The actual definition of a diva is a woman who sings well.
“The secondary definition is a woman who is difficult to deal with. I hope I am the first, but I really don't think I am the second. I don't believe I am truly nasty and act in a bad way."
In order to prove her point Mariah has also spoken of her new eco-friendly ways - including halving her annual electricity bill by getting some new light bulbs.
“I try not to waste electricity or water,” she explains. “Someone told me about these new light bulbs that last for 10 years and use a fraction of the energy, so I ordered some. I hope to have my bill cut in half by next year."

NY Daily News:
Kill Bill" actress Vivica A. Fox is brushing off the claim that she's the latest star of a celebrity sex tape.
An unscrupulous boyfriend allegedly filmed the unsuspecting Fox as she performed oral sex on him, according to Internet reports.
Atlanta blogger Sandra Rose contends that the cad captured the intimacy with his cell phone and that he later e-mailed friends the footage of Fox "on her knees." One of those friends forwarded the e-mail to Fox, who has sought advice from "a friend at the Atlanta Police Department," according to Rose.
But Fox's manager, Lita Richardson, tells us, "It's not true," without saying what part of the report she was disputing.
However, an Atlanta radio personality, Porsche Foxx, "confirmed that her close friend Vivica Fox appears in a controversial sex tape," according to Rose.
Atlanta police spokesman James Polite told us, "At this time, we have no formal complaint from Miss Fox."
"If it was something that was consensual, we're not looking at a crime, per se," Polite added. "If the [boyfriend] is trying to extort Miss Fox, that's when we begin to look at a criminal element."

PUNK starlet Avril Lavigne was on the verge of tears New Year's Eve when she lost the spotlight to 'Lil Jon. The rude rapper was deejaying a countdown party at Prive, where Lavigne was slated to call the countdown. But before the stroke of midnight, onlookers saw 'Lil Jon "grab his own mike and steal the show" from Lavigne by "holding his own countdown." The pop princess was said to be "visibly upset" and clung to her hubby Deryck Whibley, crying "I wanted to do the countdown!" Only when servers brought out Dom Perignon did she calm down. Her reps could not be reached.
I wonder what the consequences are?
Angelina Jolie's children are banned from waking her up in the morning.
Brad Pitt gets up early every morning with their four kids - adopted children Maddox, six, Pax, four, Zahara, two, and 20-month-old biological daughter Shiloh - and gives them breakfast while Angelina has a lie-in.
An insider told Life and Style Weekly magazine: "Sometimes the kids will go in and wake her, but they're not supposed to. Sometimes she'll get up earlier to take the kids to school, but Brad's usually the one who gets them out the door."
Brad, 44, has been hailed as a "super-dad" doing all the hands on work while Angelina, 32, has been busy filming new movies 'Wanted' and 'The Changeling'on location.
The source added: "Brad gets up really early with the children. He changes diapers and gets Zahara and Shiloh fed and dressed for the day. He takes this responsibility very seriously.
Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are reportedly seeking medical advice in a bid to give daughter Suri a little brother or sister.
The couple are said to be so desperate to extend their family - which already includes 20-month-old Suri and Tom's adopted children, Connor and Isabella, with his ex-wife Nicole Kidman -that they plan consult a fertiity specialist.
A source said: "Katie is so upset. They both really want another child but it just doesn't seem to be happening. She says they have been trying since last summer. Tom and Katie have decided to go and see a specialist."
The couple are allegedly planning to visit Los Angeles' Cedars-Sinai Medical Center later this month for a consultation, according to Britain's Now magazine.
The couple have made no secret of their desire for more children.
Katie has said: "Yes I definitely want more children. We're having the best time, it's so amazing. We have so many kids in our house, there's always this wonderful chatter and this great noise of kids.
Tom is a great father so it came as no shock when we had Suri he was amazing with the baby."
I'm excited that good old Yau will get another shot! The mix of new contestants with old villains and favorites seems like a great idea..........
When producers initially began mapping out season 16 — yes, 16! — of Survivor, they considered making it their second All-Stars edition. But then they considered something else. ''None of us felt like a full-on All-Stars was the right choice, because we did it once and since then so many other shows have done it,'' says host Jeff Probst. ''It felt like we needed a twist.'' And when has this seminal reality show not embraced a twist? Enter the Fans vs. Favorites concept of Survivor: Micronesia (debuting Feb. 7 on CBS at 8 p.m.), featuring one tribe of former Survivor standouts, and another tribe of newbies who idolize the players they are about to compete against.

On December 21, Jessica Simpson’s new comedy Blonde Ambition opened on just eight screens, all in her home state of Texas.
The film — which earned a miniscule $1,190 during its opening weekend — was not screened for critics. It was pulled from screens January 2 due to lack of sales.
In the latest issue of Us Weekly, Texas reader Angie Fayad, 19, hit the Cinemark Movies 10 in Plano, Texas (cost of admission: $1; half-off on Tuesdays), to check it out for Us.
Here's her review:
"The flick, about a naive southern girl in NYC, is full of horrible stereotypes and bad dialogue.
"Scenes with Simpson’s love interest, Luke Wilson, are also pitiful. In one, they both unbutton their pants after eating pizza and sigh in sexually suggestive relief.
"Considering her dad, Joe, is a producer, I was creeped out to see Simpson in low-cut tops and sticking her butt out a lot. Bottom line: I want my dollar back."
FILM star Eddie Murphy's beach marriage in French Polynesia this week is likely to be invalid, a lawyer has said.
General law specialist in French Polynesia, Malgras Benoit, confirmed reports that Murphy and his 40-year-old fiancee Tracey Edmonds were ineligible to be married locally because they had not lived in the region for long enough.
Under French law people wishing to marry must reside near where the ceremony is to take place for at least 30 days before they can legally tie the knot.
The couple reportedly arrived in French Polynesia by private jet on the weekend and were married on new year's day on a small islet near Bora Bora Island, a playground for wealthy tourists.
People magazine reported that the couple wed in a sunset ceremony on the beach in front of 25 family and friends.
The magazine said Edmonds walked barefoot down the aisle to Gladys Knight's Makings of You and that a gazebo made from 6,000 shells was built for the event.
Benoit said the details indicated the wedding could not be recognised under French law.
'A marriage on the beach would be like ... a fake marriage. It's not a real marriage, if it is on the beach with only a local priest,'' he said....
Tom Hanks is hoping to hear his name when the Oscar nominations are announced later this month - because he is desperate for another Academy Award.
The 51-year-old - who won two Best Actor in a Leading Role gongs for 1993 movie Philadelphia and Forrest Gump in 1994 - is keeping his fingers crossed for a nomination for his role in Charlie Wilson's War when the shortlist is revealed on January 22.
He says, "If I'm 90 and haven't scored another one, I will truly view the latter part of my career as some kind of failure."
Hanks has also been nominated for Best Actor in a Leading Role for Cast Away, Saving Private Ryan and Big.
Reese Witherspoon is called a prude! She gets red faced due to "funny" love scene with Vince Vaughn.
It's been widely reported that Reese Witherspoon and Vince Vaughn can't stop butting heads on the set of Four Christmases but apparently it was a scene where they're supposed to bump uglies that really has Reese hot and bothered — but for all the wrong reasons. "Reese has an issue with the scripted love scene," an on-set source tells PageSix.com. The sex scene is written as a funny, American Pie-style romp, but "Reese is such a prude, she thinks it's just too much," the insider adds.
While Reese may be the bigger star of the two, Vince definitely has more clout on set. Not only is he one of the film's producers but he also oversaw most of the writing, so the sex scene will most likely be filmed as written. But Reese may not be the only one scoffing at some of the film's content — there is a chance Vince's ex-girlfriend Jennifer Aniston won't be too happy, either, because Vince's character is oddly named "Brad." Honestly, to play a character named after your ex-girlfriend's ex-husband — it's all so meta! Only in Hollywood.
Jessie O'Brien has a nice piece on the storyline......
I just just imagine Stephen Hawking reading her quote...........
The "Fantasy" singer, who has to stop talking for two days before a big show to give her voice a rest, believes a "robot voice" machine similar to the one used by the paralysed scientist would be useful.
She said, "Before a big show I have to do 'vocal rest' where I'm not allowed to speak for two days. It's so boring having to write notes to everyone! I need Stephen Hawking's voice machine for when I'm on vocal rest."
"I'd like a machine where I can just think and it comes out in a robot voice - that would be amazing!"
Lindsay Lohan's ex apologizes to her and her father for selling Lindsay's bedroom tales for $120,000.
After Lindsay Lohan’s ex Riley Giles, 25, sold their lovemaking details to Britain’s News of the World (they appeared December 23), Lohan’s mom, Dina, got on the horn to his mom, Us Weekly reports in its latest issue.
“Dina insulted her parenting,” says a source close to Giles, who met Lindsay, 21, during her August rehab stint.
(An insider at the tab says he got $120,000.)
Says a Dina pal: “Dina did call Riley’s mom.”
Lindsay’s dad, Michael, tells Us he and Lindsay have spoken to Giles, and “he apologizes.”
The Mission Impossible star – who has amassed an estimated fortune of $250 million - loves splashing the cash so much that sources close to the actor fear he could end up with nothing.
A source said: "Tom is really into money. He has no problem spending it. It makes him feel powerful. He loves to brag about his Porsches, his homes, his planes and his motorcycles.
"When Tom takes Katie out, he has his security people hand $100 bills to anyone who helps them, even someone who opens a door! He's a big giver."
As well as funding his lavish lifestyle of expensive meals and shopping sprees for wife Katie Holmes and 20-old-daughter Suri, Tom also spends a vast amount of money running his four private planes.
Last year, he spent a massive $1 million on fuel alone!
How many officers do you think are examining the tape?.................
In the tape, an apparently inebriated Vivica can be seen on her knees servicing a male friend who surreptitiously taped the encounter on his cell phone. Allegedly the man, who lives in Atlanta, emailed the tape to friends who emailed it to Vivica. She quickly forwarded the tape to a friend at the Atlanta police department.
It isn’t known if Vivica filed an official complaint with the police or if she asked her police friend to handle the situation privately. At any rate, men tattle worse than females - especially here in the ATL - so the tape got out.
One of my loyal reader’s promised me she would send the link to the tape but I’m still waiting… I am hoping someone will send me a link to the tape for educational purposes only, of course.

Vanity Fair exposes the secrets behind the new Indiana Jones flick! Why will critics and fans be upset?
Great article! I can't wait.........

Stars lie about pregnancies & they use botox?????? Gasp!
WHICH 40ish actress has finally gotten pregnant for the first time? Her rep is denying it because she's only a month into it, and has suffered miscarriages in the past. Said our source: "Watch for her to get bangs and start wearing hats to hide her sagging face because you can't be on Botox when you are pregnant" . . .
I had a hard time spelling uterus.....
Model and TV "Rock Star" host BROOKE BURKE is famous for her all-American-girl looks and bikini photos. Now after three children, the cover girl is sharing how she keeps her flat abs and hourglass shape with our own THEA ANDREWS, who is also pregnant. Brooke's secret? Stretching and core-strengthening Pilates workouts along with post-baby tummy wraps!
"I've been doing Pilates for eight years," says Brooke, who is now pregnant with her fourth baby. "It supports your back and I think it helps for an easier delivery."
Like most women, Brooke says she gained 30 pounds with her last baby. But she soon had her bikini-ready belly back in shape. She credits her recovery to "Tauts Belly Wraps," an adjustable velcro waist hugger that she wore religiously for 40 days after giving birth.
"I didn't invent this. It's been around for thousands of years," she explains. "It creates some compression, helps your uterus go back down to its original size and it helps the tummy go back much quicker."
Tauts Belly Wraps are now available for sale on Brooke's Web Site, Baboosh Baby.com.
Peter H. Cropes blog:
Now it's time to get up and look in the windows. The first thing I see, unfortunately, is her short husband using the bathroom. Before I can duck away I learn the awful truth: he is sweating, and he has jazz butt. The window is open, so I am spared no detail, no matter how quickly I try to creep away. Oh god how awful, how awful to live with Rachael Ray. How awful to watch what happens. How awful to eat what happens.Soon I have crept around to the back deck and I see the small husband, an Italian fellow, walk delicately into the large dine-in kitchen. Rachael is there and, away from the cameras, she wears Mickey Mouse clothing from head to toe. Even her house slippers have things on them which make it clear they are a Mickey Mouse product. She stirs a large pot of something I cannot see clearly; I hear her tell the little husband that it is her "Astronaut Turkey Smackers." I do not know how something called a "smacker," or meant for astronauts, can be prepared in a large pot. It seems that outer space demands special, careful foods. I feel lost. The husband, too, has the same feeling. He sneaks off to the driveway and takes a big sip of Amstel from a hidden place in the back of the third PT Cruiser. He has done this before.Soon the pizza delivery boy pulls into view, but he stops a hundred yards down the road. He leaves a pizza box near a fencepost, picks up a rock, and removes what looks like cash. The husband does not look in his direction, but when he has heard the boy's engine fade away he sprints to the pie and ravenously consumes several slices. He then hides the box beneath large dried cedar branches, perhaps for later. It is a gamble, as animals may eat it, but it looks to me that he lives by playing at odds. He wipes wet leaves and pine needles on his mouth, on his tongue, to hide the smells. Rachael steps out to the front porch and yells, "JAAAAHN? JOHN-BOY? YOU OUT THERE?"The husband panics, and yells back, "I...I was chasing a rabbit! It looked like it was hurt!""Well, was it?""I guess not, Rach, 'cause he sure got away fast!""Get back in here! I just got an idea for Hobgoblin Turkey Gobblers! You know, kind of a Halloween thing!""Sounds awesome, Rach! What's...what's in it?""I'll figure that out later! Come in here and try the Smackers, and quit makin' me yell. You know I'm doin' twelve shows tomorrow!" He whispers his reply: "Sure thing, Rach!" "WHAAAAAAT?""Sorry, Rach! Be there in a sec!"................
TELLY star TYRA BANKS says she's planning to adopt a kiddie in the near future.
The 34-year-old former supermodel wants to follow in the footsteps of celebrities including MADONNA, SHARON STONE, and ANGELINA JOLIE and BRAD PITT by opening her home to a child in need.
She said: "I've wanted to adopt since I was nine.
"I have a connection with children and they don't have to come from my womb for me to have that connection."
ASHTON Kutcher and Demi Moore seem to be persona non grata at hot Chrystie Street cabaret The Box, where owner Simon Hammerstein privately applauded a performer who spilled drinks on the Hollywood power couple this week. "[Bleep] Ashton and Demi, they are so up their own arses . . . and they spend nothing," Hammerstein wrote in an e-mail to his general manager, Javier, as well as co-owner Richard Kimmel. "I can't stand those two, and I applaud whoever spilt a drink on them." But publicly, Hammerstein - grandson of Broadway lyricist Oscar Hammerstein - said he wants the offending employee, a dancer, to be chastised. "Richard, make sure you ream whoever did it," he told Kimmel in the same e-mail. Hammerstein did not respond to our e-mail, and his rep didn't return our call or e-mail.
Pamela Anderson may be one busty babe who still gets paid to party, but while the mama was making moves at PURE in Vegas, she left her kids in the hotel room to lay low. "My kids came, too, and they're staying in their hotel room having hot chocolate, watching the fireworks and trying to stay up until midnight," the former "Baywatch" bella told Tarts, referring to her sons, who are 10 and 11.
And Pammy is certainly crossing her fingers that 2008 won't bring any marriage break-ups.
"There is so much I want to do next year work-wise but focus is on family," she added.
Hmmm... So we're wondering why she chose parties over playing parent for the stroke of midnight.
She once said, "I used to smoke so much that I got winded if I did any exercise. I was never rippling and toned like a lot of my colleagues."
Now after years of trying, she reveals, "My evil old buddy has gone."

Johnny Depp's legendary turn as Captain Jack Sparrow in the "Pirates of the Carribbean" franchise has helped make him one of the highest-paid actors in Hollywood.
"Between June 2006 and June 2007, he made $92 million," said Forbes magazine's senior editor Lea Goldman. She attributes Depp's success to talent, luck and old-fashioned business savvy.
"We looked at his advance for movies he started filming and also looked at money making off back end," she explained.
Does she get gas?................
News Of The World:
"Bar (Tender) has the credentials—great legs, wonderful eyes and stunningly good looks. Leo is the cat that got the cream."
And DiCaprio himself purred: "I like someone who is really down to earth. She is a wonderful human being."
Billie Piper has said she hopes her school friend Amy Winehouse has a better time in 2008 than she’s had in 2007.
The former Doctor Who star told the Sunday Mirror recently: “I was at Sylvia Young’s Theatre School in London with Amy and she was a mate.”
“I love her - I hope there’s a happy ending, particularly because she is so talented. Her lyrics are so painful and angst-ridden, beautifully written, well-observed stuff. She’s a very clever musician.”
The two women have a lot of things in common - both have admitted to suffering from eating disorders in their teens and have had high-profile relationship troubles as well as deal with fame at a young age - but Billie added that while she feels she has a handle on life at the moment, she won’t be telling Amy how to turn things around.
She explained: “I wouldn’t be so presumptuous as to give her advice as she battles her demons, she has to work things out for herself. But I hope she has people around her who take care of her.”
The 2007 'Sportsman of the Year' by The Sporting News tells Romo to keep Jessica Simpson away from his games.
Following the recent uproar over Simpson's apparent unlucky appearance at Romo's game, Brady gives the Cowboy quarterback an advice and warning to bringing his ladylove in his games.
"After that debacle of a game with Jessica being flashed on the screens during every play, Tom told Tony to put a stop to allowing Jess to come to games. Think about it: How often do you see Gisele [Bundchen] cheering Tom on?" a source says.
It's not only his games that she keeps appearing in, she even accompanied Romo to his weekly radio gig, 'Inside the Huddle,' on December 26.
Brady and Bundchen have been dating for almost a year. Even if the Patriots make the Super Bowl, "Gisele will likely know enough to keep away. Unlike Jessica, she realizes football is more than just a game, it's his career," the source continues.
