Lindsay Lohan Throws Alcohol Fueled Party in Rehab
Lindsay Lohan has been busted throwing a party for her rehab friends where alcohol was consumed. According to TMZ, the troubled actress and her “roommates had a party a week ago last Saturday night, (and) the booze was flowing.” The Betty Ford Clinic found out about it and shipped her and her roommates back to the main facility where Lindsay will receive further “intensive therapy.” Sources say that there is “no evidence Lindsay was drinking.” Nonetheless, her association with the booze-fueled partiers means Lohan will not be allowed to leave the facility for Christmas.

Amy Adams’ Body Wasn’t Meant for Bikinis
Amy Adams says childbirth helped her come to terms with her body. The Fighter actress says she no longer feels the pressure to be skinny. She tells Parade magazine, “Being pregnant finally helped me understand what my true relationship was with my body--meaning that it wasn't put on this earth to look good in a swimsuit. I was like, 'Look, I can carry a baby! I'm gaining weight right, everything's going well,' And I've had that relationship ever since.” The actress says she was preparing herself to lose weight for her role as the tough and sexy bartender in The Fighter when director David O. Russell told her not to, saying, “I want you to look like a girl who drinks beer.” Amen to that! [NY Daily News]

According to his lawyer, an Iranian court has sentenced director Jafar Panahi to six years in prison and has banned him from making any films or traveling abroad for up to twenty years. Due to his support of opposition leader Mirhossein Mousavi in last year's presidential election, the award-winning filmmaker was arrested back in March and was kept in detention for 88 days. "Mr. Panahi has been sentenced to six years in jail for acting and propaganda against the system," his lawyer Farideh Gheyrat stated. "He has also been banned from making films, writing any kind of scripts, traveling abroad and talking to local and foreign media for 20 years," she added. Wowzers. [Reuters]
