'Lovelace' stars Amanda Seyfried and Sharon Stone epitomise sophistication at the Los Angeles premiere for pornstar biopic 'Lovelace'.
Continuing its premiere streak in the US, 'Lovelace' arrived in Los Angeles last night (August 5th 2013) with lead star Amanda Seyfried turning heads yet again on the red carpet.
The actress, who plays troubled porn star Linda Lovelace in the movie about her life, left the rouge lippie that she wore for both the Las Vegas and New York premieres at home this time, instead opting for statement smoky eyes and scooping her hair up rather than letting her long locks hang loose in her trademark over-one-shoulder style. The ageless Sharon Stone also impressed on the red carpet, donning a sophisticated black trouser suit, while Juno Temple teamed her suit with bright yellow heels and a T-shirt featuring a cheeky Lovelace-related slogan. A very serious-looking Chris Noth, who stars as Anthony Romano in the movie, also appeared at the event, alongside his fedora-wearing co-star Adam Brody.

Photographs of Mackenzie Rosman, former star of US drama 7th Heaven, have been leaked online. The pictures were shot in March for Maxim Magazine's September edition. They show Rosman posing in lingerie.
Mackenzie Rosman, the actress who played Ruthie Camden on The WB's family drama 7th Heaven, has shocked many with her brazen photographs for Maxim. The 23-year-old posed for the magazine's September issue in lingerie and the pictures have already been leaked online. The photographs were taken in March as Rosman confirmed with a Tweet, dating from 28th March, which reads: "I caved. Just wrapped a Maxim photoshoot".

This is not the first time the actress has appeared online scantily clad. In 2008, Rosman was the centre of a scandal when images of the actress in her underwear and kissing another female were leaked online. These images were candid and evidently the result of Rosman's typical teenage antics having been caught on film.

What is going on with Simon Cowell’s ever-so-complicated love life?
The music mogul, who has reportedly been dating actress Carmen Electra since her guest appearance on Britain’s Got Talent, but it looks like that relationship may have gotten a bit rocky. The pair did not spend New Years Eve together (a sure sign of trouble in Celebrityland, just look at Justin and Selena), and Simon has been seen recently enjoying the company of his ex-fiancée, Mezhgan Hussainy.
On Thursday, January 3, pictures surfaced of the two, lounging about in the sun and clearly enjoying each other’s company. Cowell was getting away from the gloom and rain back home on his annual trip to St. Barts and Hussainy joined him for a little R&R on his yacht. The pair looked quite comfortable with each other, but considering their dramatic split last year, it is probably too early to jump to any conclusions. A bit of backstory on the couple: the two got engaged in 2010 and broke it off in 2012. However, Cowell is known to stay friends with his ex-girlfriends and even reportedly bought Hussainy a mansion to apologize for the broken engagement. Well, wouldn’t we all want a friend like that? Or a little more than a friend, if these latest shots are anything to go by.
“She’s not my girlfriend, we’re people who date.” Those are the words that Simon Cowell used when he was quizzed about his relationship with the former Playboy model Carmen Electra. The clarification over their status came during an interview on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show on Wednesday morning (December 19, 2012), New York Daily News reports. Simon might not want to call Carmen his girlfriend just yet but he did go so far as to say “she’s adorable, isn’t she?”
Simon’s not the only prone to a bit of public gushing either; Carmen recently told Access Hollywood how much she liked the x factor judge. “He's so cute. He is adorable. He's actually a sweetheart,” she said back in November. “The thing is, we worked together on Britain's Got Talent. I was a guest judge and I had so much fun. I really liked him. I think he's really cool… Now, obviously, he's in [Los Angeles] with ‘X-Factor’ and we started to hang out and we became friends ... I think he's a great guy.”
Both Cowell and Electra have ended long engagements this year; Carmen was engaged to guitarist Robert Patterson for four years and Simon had been engaged to the makeup artist Mezghan Hussainy for two years. However, just because they’ve both walked away from commitments they’ve made to other people, doesn’t mean they’re ready to make one to each other. For a start, Simon seems keen not to label Carmen as his girlfriend and on top of that, e was spied earlier this month at a restaurant with the actress Janina Gavankar.
After being spotted getting cosy numerous times, Simon Cowell has confirmed he is dating the model Carmen Electra. The X Factor star stopped by Ryan Seacrest's radio show on Wednesday (December 19, 2012) to speak about the Fox singing contest finale, though the host turned attention to Cowell's rumored relationship.
Seacrest asked if Carmen was Simon's new girlfriend, to which the Brit laughed, "Girlfriend? We're people who date. She's adorable, isn't she?" Electra's past boyfriends include Dave Navarro, Rob Patterson of Korn, Dennis Rodman and Tommy Lee. Cowell has enjoyed a string of romances, with the likes of Mezhgan Hussainy, Jasmine Lennard and Terri Seymour. After getting the answer he was looking for, Seacrest moved on and asked Cowell about L.A. Reid's departure from The X Factor, saying, "I'm going to miss him, because he's a good guy, but he has to go back and run the record label." As for rumors that Chris Brown or Rihanna could replace the label boss, Cowell was much clearer, saying, "That is complete rubbish, absolute rubbish."
Country crooner Tate Stevens was crowned the X Factor champion on Thursday afternoon, after 35 million votes were cast across the U.S. He wins a $5 million recording contract.

The year may be almost over, but Simon Cowell and Carmen Electra look to have gotten in just in time to claim this years award for 'weirdest celebrity couple,' after rumours that the pair are seeing each other have all but been confirmed by them both.
Speaking to Ryan Seacrest on his KiisFM show this Wednesday (Dec 19), the music mogul revealed "She's not my girlfriend. We're people who date. She's adorable, isn't she?"
The highly unexpected pair first met when Carmen filled in for Kelly Brook on Britain's Got Talent a few years ago (because who knows talent better than a model right?), and the pair have apparently been seeing more and more of each other of the months and were even spotted (supposedly) locking lips in a LA restaurant early in the autumn.

There, they meet their nemeses: the clean-cut white-teethed Murtaugh family led by perfectionist papa Jimmy, played by the painfully underutilized Eugene Levy.
