The 'Diana' actress worried she wouldn't be able to fulfil her dream of becoming a mother until a life-changing meeting with her long-time partner Liev Schreiber in 2005.

She revealed: ''There was a time when I was becoming pessimistic because children were always a lifelong dream of mine. I would never have felt the happiness I feel now if I hadn't met Liev and had my children.

Farrell Fell Apart After Alexander Flop


Colin Farrell Alexander

Colin Farrell spiralled into a deep depression after his blockbuster Alexander flopped - and even considered turning his back on acting for good.

The Irish actor starred as Alexander the Great in Oliver Stone's 2004 epic, and was crushed by the negative reviews his performance generated.

Farrell subsequently fell into a slump and admits he felt the need to apologise to everyone who might have seen the movie.

He recalls, "That was tough. I say tough relative to a charmed life, but I'm not going to apologise for how much it affected me emotionally and psychologically. I was going to walk away from acting. I couldn't even buy a packet of cigarettes without feeling like I needed to say sorry to the guy behind the counter just in case he happened to see the thing."

Farrell Eyed Oscar Glory For Flop Alexander


Colin Farrell Alexander

Colin Farrell was stunned his movie Alexander was a box office flop - because he was convinced the film was heading for Oscar glory.

The Irish actor played the ancient Greek conqueror in the 2004 Oliver Stone project, co-starring Angelina Jolie and Val Kilmer.

It was panned by movie critics and only managed to recuperate one quarter of its $155 million (£97 million) budget back at the U.S. box office.

But Farrell was shocked by the movie's reception - as he and his co-stars were sure it would sweep the board at the 2005 Academy Awards.

Britney 'Doesn't Want Custody Of Kids', Says First Husband

By on 14 February 2008

Britney Spears Alexander Kevin Federline Las Vegas Sean Preston

Britney Spears does not want to regain custody of her two children, according to her first husband.

Jason Alexander, who was married to the Toxic star for only 55 hours in 2004, claims Britney has all but given up fighting her second husband, Kevin Federline, for custody of Sean Preston, two, and one-year-old Jayden James.

The 26-year-old singer and Federline have been involved in a lengthy custody dispute since their divorce last year and lost visitation rights to the two boys after her dramatic hospitalisation last month.

Talking to In Touch magazine, Alexander said Britney does not want to have permanent custody of her sons.

"She wants to see them, but she doesn't want to be a full-time mom," he explained. "She said it doesn't matter if she doesn't get them back full-time, and that she can always have other kids later on."

He added that while she "misses" her children, he does not believe she should be awarded full custody "because she needs to focus on her".

Britney was recently released from the UCLA medical centre in Los Angeles after being admitted under the recommendation of her psychiatrist.

Her father James has been awarded temporary conservatorship of her affairs and a restraining order has been issued against former manager and confidante Sam Lufti, thought to be a damaging influence in the pop star's life.

Alexander claimed Britney is aware of her mental issues, saying: "She does want to get better. She doesn't sound as crazy right now as she did three weeks ago, but she's not right. She isn't well enough to know what she wants."

The Louisiana native, a childhood friend of Britney's, revealed that he and the singer renewed their friendship shortly before Christmas.

"I got a phone call, a voice mail, that said, 'Hey! It's me. I know we haven't spoken in a while.' It was Britney.

"She said she'd call me back, and we've been speaking ever since."

Britney and Alexander married at the Little White Wedding Chapel in Las Vegas on January 3rd, 2004, but the marriage was annulled only 55 hours later.

Salma Hayek Engaged And Pregnant

By on 12 March 2007

Salma Hayek Alexander Bono Eddie Izzard Edward Norton Evan Rachel Wood Fight Club Josh Lucas Marilyn Manson Queen Stella Mccartney U2

Mexican beauty Salma Hayek is engaged and expecting their first baby, the Academy Award-nominated actress has revealed.

The Ugly Betty actress and producer announced her engagement to the billionaire businessman through her publicist over the weekend.

Francois-Henri heads the Paris-based company PPR which specialises in luxury brands such the fashionista's favourites Gucci, Alexander McQueen and Stella Mccartney.

"Francois-Henri Pinault and his fiancé, Salma Hayek, are happy to announce they are expecting the arrival of their first child," spokeswoman Ina Treciokas said in a brief statement.

And it seems that this could be all the information the 40-year-old Frieda actress and her partner will reveal as her publicist insisted that no other details will be revealed by the couple, including when the bouncing bundle will be born or when the pair will wed.

Salma dated Fight Club star Edward Norton for four years and was also romantically linked to the actor Josh Lucas.

Her new movie, Across the Universe, sees Salma act alongside a bizarre cast including U2 singer Bono, British comedian Eddie Izzard and rocker Marilyn Manson's alleged new beau Evan Rachel Wood. Set in the 1960s, the psychedelic musical shows the turbulent years of anti-war protest.

Farrell Stung By Hoax Drug Sting


Colin Farrell Miami Vice Michael Mann Alexander

Colin Farrell was left fearing for his life on the set of new movie Miami Vice when drug enforcement cops made him believe a hoax cocaine deal was the real thing.
The Irish actor was researching his role in the movie adaptation of the hit TV series when Miami, Florida detectives asked him if he wanted to be part of a real sting operation.
Unbeknownst to Farrell, director Michael Mann had set up the ruse and was filming his star as a fake gun was pulled on him.
The Alexander star, who is still recovering from the ordeal, recalls, "We were running fake scenarios in a car park in Miami and then came the time when they were doing a deal themselves. They were buying 40 kilos of cocaine of a bunch of Colombians.
"They said to me, 'You can come with us if you want. These guys, we've dealt with them before, they're not into trouble; they just want to make money, they're all about the business.'
"I was put on the spot and my ego was pulled into question and I said, 'Absolutely, I'm there with you...' and we went along to a deal that I thought was real and it went arse over elbow and a gun came out.
"I saw the tape back and, seriously, I can see the moment where I had a bowel movement... and I smoked about 17 cigarettes in about 20 minutes."
"They were taking the p**s; it was a whole set up and they got me."

Farrell says, "Nothing happened between me and Angelina - unfortunately.
