Angelina Jolie and Mick Jagger’s Secret Affair

A new book, Brad Pitt And Angelina Jolie: The True Story, written by Jenny Paul, claims that Angelina Jolie and Mick Jagger had an affair in the late 1990s. At the time Jolie was married to Johnny Lee Miller and Jagger was hitched to model Jerry Hall. The two apparently met on the set of the Rolling Stones music video for the song "Anybody Seen My Baby" in 1997. The affair was short lived, however the two reportedly rekindled their relationship in 2003 and were seen together entering Jagger’s hotel room in Bangkok, Thailand. Wow, girls really love to get themselves some Jagger. [Daily Mail]

Kendra Wilkinson's Guide to Privacy

Reality television star Kendra Wilkinson is used to being followed around by a camera crew. The star of The Girls Next Door and now her own show Kendra knows how to work the camera and also how to make the camera crew stop filming. How does she do it? She shows her breasts. She tells Details magazine, “I ask them politely to respect that we need some time alone. Or I just lift up my shirt. It's too expensive to blur boobs.” This girl has more smarts than she’s given credit for. [Details]

Premature Maturation

The writing team of Sam Pitman and Adam Cole-Kelly have sold a pitch to Fox that is, apparently, a mix of the movies Big and The Hangover. The story involves a group of middle schoolers who turn into adults and then, presumable, get wildly drunk and wake up in a room with a tiger. This is all wild speculation (well, the tiger part anyway), but it certainly sounds like one movie that needs to be made. [/Film]

Mark Millar Becomes a Director

Mark Millar is following in the steps of Frank Miller, in that he’s written for the comics for a long time, and seen some of his original comics turn into movies – Wanted, Kick-Ass – and now he’s going to sit in the director chair himself. He’s not going to adapt one of his other comics, but rather create an original concept he compares to District 9, X-Men 2, and Trainspotting. Which, obviously, makes almost no sense, but then, underestimating Millar would be an unwise thing to do at this point in his career. Here’s hoping Millar doesn’t falter behind the camera as badly as Miller did. [STV TV]

Ke$Ha Slams Britney Spears

In a recent interview with Showbiz Spy, shock-popper Ke$Ha slammed Britney Spears for lip-syncing songs while performing on her Circus tour last year. Ke$Ha insisted that Spears cheated her fans by not singing live. Ke$Ha stated: "I think that's bulls***. I don't think that's fair at all for people who are going to see the show...I would never do that to my fans.” Maybe this chick isn’t so stupid after all. [Access Hollywood]

Dinosaurs' Official Cause of Death: Huge Asteroid

A panel of 41 experts at the 41st Lunar and Planetary Science Conference have reached an agreement that a massive, 10-15km asteroid killed the dinosaurs 65 million years ago when it slammed into the Yucatan. They reached the consensus after conducting the "most wide-ranging analysis yet" of the evidence. Damn, we had so much hope for the aliens vs. dinosaurs war-of-the-worlds theory. [Reuters]

Newest NVIDIA Software Update is Melting Computers

After a group of StarCraft II beta testers reported technical difficulties following the installation of NVIDIA driver update 196.75, Blizzard tech support found that the update introduced fan control problems that were causing video cards to overheat in 3D applications. "This means every single 3D application (i.e. games) running these drivers is going to be exposed to overheating and in some extreme cases it will cause video card, motherboard, and/or processor damage. If said motherboard, processor, or graphic card is not under warranty, some gamers are in serious trouble playing intensive games such as Prototype, World of Warcraft, Farcry 3, Crysis, and many other games with realistic graphics." NVIDIA said they were investigating the problem, took down links to the new drivers, and advised users to revert to 196.21 until the problem can be fixed. [INC Gamers]
