Courtney Love chatted with the New York Post at a film screening the other night, and the Hole frontwoman seemingly congratulated her former fiance Ed Norton on his engagement to girlfriend Shauna Robertson!
Norton's rep hasn't commented on the news, but Love gushed, "Wow, it's about time. He's 41, they've been together for six years. He needs to have babies ... I wonder what kind of ring he got her? He bought me a ruby." Love added, "He has great character. He's very political. I see him being a senator one day."
Hmm, so did Love spill the beans? Or is she just confused and babbling?
Ouch! What did two-time Academy Award nominee Edward Norton do to deserve this?
Marvel has released the following statement about the actor and his involvement in the latest Avengers remake... and it's pretty nasty!
"We have made the decision to not bring Ed Norton back to portray the title role of Bruce Banner in The Avengers. Our decision is definitely not one based on monetary factors, but instead rooted in the need for an actor who embodies the creativity and collaborative spirit of our other talented cast members. The Avengers demands players who thrive working as part of an ensemble, as evidenced by Robert, Chris H., Chris E., Sam, Scarlett, and all of our talented casts. We are looking to announce a name actor who fulfills these requirements, and is passionate about the iconic role in the coming weeks."
Norton is extremely talented - what's UP Primal Fear and American History X! - but perhaps he's not a team player?
A rep for the actor had this to say: "This offensive statement from Kevin Feige at Marvel is a purposefully misleading, inappropriate attempt to paint our client in a negative light... This seemed to us to be a financial decision but, whatever the case, it is completely their prerogative, and we accepted their decision with no hard feelings."
Oscar-nominated actor Edward Norton has been named the UN goodwill ambassador for biodiversity.
UN Secretary General Ban ki-Moon said, "Edward Norton has brought global star power to global issues -- community development and conservation, causes that are clearly close to his heart."
"It is an issue that I've been engaged with on many different levels for a number of years," Norton said at UN Headquarters in NYC on Thursday. "But it's very, very exciting to be asked to engage with it on the level of the UN with its incredible capacity and reach."
Norton is a board member of the Maasai Wilderness Conservation Trust, and the actor ran the New York City Marathon last year, helping raise over $1 million for the trust and the communities in Kenya who rely on the group's support.
Norton added that he would be "increasing people's focus on the fact that human well-being is intertwined fundamentally with biodiversity. I think catastrophic events like what's happening in the Gulf with the oil spill do highlight for people that there is enormous ramification for human well-being through a loss of biodiversity."
...but what the heck happened to Edward Norton's schnozz?
We caught up with the actor last night as he and his girlfriend pulled up in his energy-efficient new BMW. Unfortunately, Edward may have meant for the paps to catch him minding the environment - but we also caught him with some damage around his beak!
What gives, Edward? Did someone go all Bruce Banner on your nose after the fit you pitched over The Incredible Hulk?
