Men's magazine Arena has conducted a survey asking readers to vote for the most undeserving icon of the year. I think we were all shocked and amazed to hear that Pete Doherty was the man they chose. These people clearly don't recognize talent when they see it, I mean, how many guys do you know that can get arrested on drugs charges and possession that many times and still not be in jail?
In other news, Elton John is in Australia, and when asked what he has to say to their PM John Howard re. his government ban on gay marriage, Elton replied, "Up yours!" I think he really struck a blow for the team with that well-thought out articulate reply.
Oh, and despite that appalling Chanel commercial, Nicole Kidman is now Hollywood's highest-paid actress.
On a final note I found this link, which shows what Owen Wilson and Kate Hudson's kid would look like, if they had one. Funny and yet strangely believable.
The image of Daniel Craig at the top is not just an incidental bit of eye candy. No siree, if like me you are reticent, thanks to all the bad press about him, to go and see it, don't! I went and watched Casino Royale with Roberto last night, and it rocked! It's a non-stop action-filled roller coaster of a movie, and Daniel Craig is brilliant. In fact, as far as acting goes, the guy really takes the role and makes it his own - giving us a Bond that is dark and far more complex than we have seen before. The one-liners are delivered with genuine wit, and we are spared the cheesiness and cliches. If you are Bond fan, this is a must see.
