Nicole Plies Paparazzi with Beer
The "Smart Celebrity of the Week" award goes to one Nicole Kidman , who yesterday sent a case of beer out to the sweaty horde of photographers camped outside her Sydney home. With her wedding to country crooner (and fellow Aussie) Keith Urban rumored to be coming up this weekend, she may have just ensured that her wedding day (or night) will be free of gate-crashing lensmen or circling helicopters.
See, because all the paparazzi needed to tame their invasive ways was to be treated like fellow human beings, to be given even an ounce of human kindness, to be accorded the dignity and respect they have so long lacked. They have feelings, too. And of course they'll now play by Nicole's rules because she has wisely reached out to them and soon they will be her avenging army and defend her as she plots world domination. I'm getting carried away.
Seriously, though, if she keeps it up maybe they'll be too drunk to snap in-focus pix.
Tom Wants a Perfect 10
Speaking of world domination and avenging armies, Tom Cruise has plans for his own. In a Father's Day interview he said, ""I always wanted to be a father. I remember my whole life, I wanted to be a father. So I'm hoping maybe I have 10 children."
And that's why Tom gets the "Stupid Celebrity of the Week" award. Why stupid? Because, duh, "Eight is Enough" and kids are "Cheaper By the Dozen." Okay, now I'm stupid.
Seriously, though, I doubt Katie Holmes would be onboard for nine additional pregnancies. Especially considering the hype and gossip surrounding the first one (of whom we have yet to see a picture. Ahem). And a hefty pre-nup only makes it easier to make the decision. So, Tom, keep flapping those gums and next time you're asked, remember it isn't you who has the children.
