Anne Hathaway Cursed with Thieving Boyfriends

Sweet and adorable Anne Hathaway just can’t seem to find a good, honest man. The Academy Award-nominated actress is in the news again after her current boyfriend, actor Adam Shulman, was caught stealing. A New York Post writer witnessed Shulman stealing a mural by street artist Mr. Brainwash from a building site in Manhattan’s Meatpacking District. Now the owner of the building wants it back. Ken Hart, president of H&H Builders, said he considered the mural to be his property. Hart says, "If he brings me back the art, it's over. But if he doesn't, I'm going to the police to report it stolen!" Prior to dating Shulman, Hathaway was in a long-term relationship with Raffaello Follierie. Follierie milked some $4 million from investors in a real estate scam and is currently serving jail time after pleading guilty to fraud.. Neither Shulman nor Hathway have commented on the alleged street art heist. [NY Post]

Lindsay vs. Avril

Lindsay Lohan and Avril Lavigne are reportedly locked in a bitter feud that recently descended into an all out public brawl. Things turned nasty when Lohan ran into Lavigne and friends at the famed Chateau Marmont in Hollywood. According to the New York Post, “Avril was at a table with friends just over a week ago including her boyfriend, Brody Jenner, when Lindsay came over to say hi. But as soon as she approached, Avril launched at her and said: 'Get the hell out of my face, you are fake, you are a loser. I don't like false people. Stay away from me and my friends...” Lohan hit back and screamed: “Don't threaten me!” She then unsuccessfully tried to have Lavigne thrown out. We say bring it on, Celebrity Death Match-style.

The final installment in the Twilight series is facing delays as film bosses attempt to renegotiate pay deals to keep all of the actors on board for a fifth picture. Bosses at Summit Entertainment have been slowed down by negotiations with some of the supporting cast who are reportedly demanding a pay increase to return for a fifth movie. According to the Hollywood Reporter, film chiefs are allegedly planning to recast some of the parts if appropriate salary deals can't be reached. [Hollywood Reporter]

The Next Playboy Centerfold Will Be In 3D

When Hugh Hefner launched Playboy back in the '50s, he hired a photographer to shoot two nude women in 3D. But the price of bundling anaglyph glasses with the magazine was too high. This week, Hef's dream becomes reality. Hefner, not himself a fan of the new wave of 3D movies, frames Playboy's role amidst the Avatar effect simply: "What would people most like to see in 3D?...Probably a naked lady." Hef is a wise man.

Apparently the Fate of the World's Economy is More Important than a Toronto Blue Jays Game

Thanks to the selfish global leaders (and their desperate need to solicit death threats) the Toronto Blue Jays will be forced to move their late June series against the Phillies to Philadelphia in order to accommodate security measures for the G20 summit in Canada. For those of you who don't know, the G20 summit is a conference of various financial leaders coming together to discuss the progress of global finance. For those of you who don't know, Canada is a small nation located directly above the United States. [ESPN]

Twitter Saves Man in Desperate Need of TP

When he found himself stuck in a public restroom stall without any toilet paper, Twitter user naika_tei did what any clever man would do: He posted a Twitter message pleading for help. It worked. It took 20 minutes from the time aika_tei first voiced his desperation, but someone apparently really brought him a roll of toilet paper. [Foolish Gadgets]
