Bond - Sir Roger Moore Boycotts U.k. Shop Over Foie Gras

Bond legend Sir Roger Moore is urging animal lovers to boycott a top British department store which stocks foie gras.

The veteran star has stepped up his battle against bosses at Fortnum & Mason by narrating a graphic new expose, which shows how geese livers are fattened to make the controversial product.

Moore hopes the shocking undercover scenes, filmed by campaigners at People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (Peta), will convince company bosses to remove the product from their shelves and he is calling on fans to avoid the London retailer in the mean time.

He says, "I am horrified by the callous treatment of geese that Peta investigators filmed on foie gras farms in France. I hope compassionate people everywhere will boycott Fortnum & Mason until they remove this 'torture in a tin' from their shelves and menus."

Funnyman Ricky Gervais, actress Joanna Lumley and singer Dame Vera Lynn are among the animal-loving stars who have also urged Fortnum & Mason to drop foie gras.

Gemma Arterton Punched Groping Vagrant 3503474 News

Former Bond girl Gemma Arterton punched a vagrant in the face when he groped her at a cash machine.

The British actress was withdrawing money when a down-and-out man sneaked up behind her and pinched her butt, so the stunned star fought him off and fled.

She tells U.K. talk show host Graham Norton, "I was in one of those Atm cash machine rooms and there was a tramp in there. He kept looking at me and then he grabbed my bum really hard. I turned round and properly punched him in the face. I then realise I'd punched a tramp in the face so I ran. Thank God he didn't punch me back. I actually felt quite bad about it."

Leonardo Dicaprio's Smelly Dog 2533094 News

Leonardo DiCaprio's friends hate travelling on his private jet because his pet dog stinks.

The 'Great Gatsby' actor's beloved pooch - a seven-year-old French bulldog named Django - travels everywhere with him but friends including Armie Hammer and Carey Mulligan are not impressed with the canine's chronic gas problems.

A source said: "I don't know what Leo feeds it, but Django absolutely reeks and doesn't let up. He will continually eat and pass gas for the entire duration of the flight. It's kind of funny the first time you get a whiff because everyone's looking around to see who did it. But after an hour or so it gets nauseating. By the end of the flight, the cramped toilets are the only place to get some fresh air!"

However, Leonardo's friends don't blame the dog and say the actor is to blame because he is so used to the odour he doesn't even smell it anymore.

The source added to National Enquirer magazine: "I don't think it's really the dog's fault. Most likely, it gets gas from all the rich food Leo feeds it. French bulldogs have notoriously delicate digestive systems.

"The funny thing is that Leo can't understand what the problem is, probably because he's so used to the odour. Either that or he has no sense of smell.

"Django is a cute dog, and Leo's had him for nearly a decade now so there's a real bond between them. But five hours stuck with a gassy pooch is not anyone's idea of a pleasant flight."

Denise Richards' Daughters Care For Baby Eloise 2535027 News

Denise Richards' older daughters feed their baby sister her bottle.

The former Bond Girl adopted Eloise - who is now five months old - in June and she has revealed her two girls, Sam, seven, and six-year-old Lola, love to help her care for the tot.

In a posting for iVillage blog series CelebVillage, she wrote: "My daughters, Sami and Lola, feel so blessed to be big sisters to Eloise. They love giving her a bottle, picking out her outfit and making her smile. I couldn't imagine better big sisters for Eloise. I love my girls so much - three is a charm!"

Although she already had two daughters - her children with ex-husband Charlie Sheen - Denise insists she never really considered offering a home to a disadvantaged boy.

The 40-year-old actress believes that she was destined to be Eloise's mother because "children choose their parents".

She explained: "A lot of people ask me why I adopted another girl and not a boy. I honestly had no preference whether I had a son or daughter. I knew what was meant to be would be, and I was blessed with a beautiful baby daughter . The process took two years and there were many times during that I felt discouraged. But I always had faith that the right baby would find us (my daughters and me). I've always felt that children choose their parents, and Eloise found me a different way."

No Marriage For Willie Garson 2539802 News

Willie Garson's son never wants him to get married.

The 47-year-old actor - who is best known for playing Carrie Bradshaw's flamboyant best friend Stanford Blatch in 'Sex and the City' - cherishes the close bond he has with adopted son Nathen, nine, but would love to settle down eventually.

He said: "I warn Nathen that in five years time, he isn't going to want to talk to me.

"He says, 'You can never get married.' He wants me all to himself - and I quite enjoy that.

Tom Jones' Strong Marriage 2548289 News

Tom Jones would never leave his wife.

The 70-year-old singer - who married Linda Trenchard 53 years ago - insists that, despite widespread reports of his infidelities over the years, he still has an incredibly strong bond with his spouse.

Tom - whose real surname is Woodward - said: "People are always asking me what makes my marriage work. There's no great mystery to it. We were kids when we met and we were completely in love. We still love each other and we've managed to remain friends too.

"We enjoy each other's company. Walking away from Linda would be unthinkable. We go back too far. I was Tommy Woodward to her then, and I still am. If I start giving it too much Tom Jones she'll remind me who I am."

The 'It's Not Unusual' hitmaker also said he hates seeing men be "disrespectful" towards women and insists he was brought up to be a gentleman around the opposite sex.

He explained to Live magazine: "People talk about it like it was just notches on the bedpost. But I never treated women like groupies.

"I've always been old-fashioned around the opposite sex. Like I'm careful not to swear in front of them. In Wales we swear all the time but not in front of women. I love a dirty joke but I'd never tell one in female company."
