Zooey Deschanel is dating screenwriter Jamie Linden. The New Girl actress was seen publicly kissing Jamie in Los Angeles, confirming rumors of a romance between them.
The pair were first linked together in June after they appeared "inseparable, holding hands and hooking their arms together" at a Magic Mike after-party.
"Jamie's a really nice guy. He's funny, and a little geeky ... he's into her!" a source added.
Zooey announced her marriage to Death Cab for Cutie singer Ben Gibbard had ended "mutually" and "amicably" in December and claimed there was no one was involved with the split.
The 32-year-old beauty recently admitted she likes intelligent men who make her laugh. "I think intelligence and humor are probably the most attractive traits in a guy," she said. However, she has also said she doesn't feel ready to date, saying, "Honestly, I'm just going through a divorce, so I don't really think [dating] is something I want to get into now. I don't have time to date. I literally don't have time."
Simon Cowell "remains friends" with his unauthorized biographer Tom Bower.
The 52-year-old music mogul granted the journalist hundreds of hours of access during Tom's research for the tell-all book - which sensationally claims Simon had a fling with Dannii Minogue and wanted to sleep with Cheryl Cole. But despite the subsequent fall-out, Tom says he has enough dirt on the X Factor boss for a follow-up, and insists there is no bad blood between them.
"The first call was, 'You are getting a lot of publicity for your book.' He said, 'It's a bit embarrassing, you got things I didn't know you'd got.' But we get on very well. Finally he said to me last night, 'We remain friends.' There will be a sequel. He'll be with us for a long time I think," he said, recalling his conversation with Simon after the book's release.
However, the writer insists that despite Simon's co-operation, he still had to work hard to find out the truth about his many women: "He didn't hand it out to me. He made me go and do what journalists do, which is dig. Then I confronted him with some things - and other things I wouldn't tell him about."
Mel Gibson terrified scriptwriter Joe Eszterhas with a foul-mouthed rant at his home in December.
Joe has released an audio file taken while at the troubled actor's home in December where he is heard shouting about his ex-wife Oksana Grigorieva and questioning why he had not yet received a first draft of the script for now-stalled project The Maccabees.
In a recording released to TheWrap.com, where Mel is heard grunting and growling, he shouts, "Why don't I have a first draft of The Maccabees? What the f**k have you been doing? I'll type it! I go to work, you're getting paid, I'm not! S**t! I am earning money for a filthy little c**ksucker who takes advantage of me! Just like every motherf****r! So hurry the f**k up!"
After a period of quiet - where he knocks down a totem pole and throws items - he asks his guests if they would like to eat. "Who wants to eat?! Who the f**k wants to eat?! Go have something to eat! Hurrrrraaaaayyyyyy! F**king **** c**ksucker whore" he shouts.
Mel Gibson has been accused of "hating Jews" by the writer of Basic Instinct. Joe Eszter has launched a scathing attack on Mel claiming he sabotaged a movie they had planned together, The Maccabees - which tells the story of Judah Maccabee, a Jew who led a revolt against the Seleucid Empire - because he is anti-Semitic.
"I've come to the conclusion that you never had, or have, any intention of making a film about the Maccabees. I believe you announced the project with great fanfare - 'a Jewish Braveheart' - in an attempt to deflect continuing charges of anti-Semitism which have dogged you. I've come to the conclusion that the reason you won't make The Maccabees is the ugliest possible one. You hate Jews," he wrote in part of a nine page letter.
Joe further claims the actor-and-director was happy when Beatles legend John Lennon was shot and killed in 1980 because he had a messiah complex and also accuses him of denying the holocaust and repeatedly calling Jews "oven dodgers."
