Jamie Lee Curtis Tony Curtis Emma Roberts

Jamie Lee Curtis thinks Hollywood is ''a very cruel business.''

The 56-year-old actress, who found fame in 'Halloween' when she was 19, doesn't think it's fair that women are ''punished'' for getting older in the entertainment industry.

She said: ''It's a very cruel business. It's humiliating to see the media frenzy that occurs when somebody gets older and they don't look the way they used to look. I want to make sure I leave on my own terms. I don't want to be punished for the natural evolution of the human being.''

Roger Moore
Roger Moore is "warming up" his fans before his autobiography due to be released next year.

Moore is on tour "warming up" his fans for his forthcoming autobiography which he hopes, should publishers allow it, to entitle "One Lucky Bastard" or, should this profanity prove too controversial, "One Lucky Fellow". The 86-year-old discussed his tour and upcoming memoirs with the BBC, it appears he had discarded other titles including "Moore on Bond or Moore or Less" after realising that he truly is "exceedingly lucky".
