The former 'Dawson's Creek' actress was allegedly asked if she would like
her name included in the list of possible Oscar nominations for her most
recent film 'Thank You for Smoking' but said no.
A source told the New York Post newspaper: "Searchlight Pictures wanted to
include Katie's name as a possible Oscar nominee on the screener of 'Thank
You for Smoking' sent to Academy members. But Katie's people respectfully
declined the offer."
The film had already caused contention between Katie and her fiancé Tom
Cruise because of the nude scenes she shot for the movie. The scenes were
cut at the film's premiere at the Sundance Festival, which Tom attended.
However, they were included in the version shown at last year's Toronto Film
In the film, Katie plays an investigative reporter who ends up in bed with
tobacco lobbyist Aaron Eckhart.
Director Jason Reitman said: "It's humorous humping! It's Kate and Aaron
gyrating back and forth."
Katie, 27, is set to marry Tom on November 18 in Italy. The couple have a
six-month-old daughter, Suri, together.
The 'Batman Begins' actress is said to be keen to return to work and has
visited several film studios recently, accompanied by Tom, to look at
Katie would much rather shop at Barney's.
tenor Andrea Bocelli.
The couple are reportedly tying the knot at 15th century castle Odescalchi,
near Rome, on November 18 and it is rumoured that Bocelli will perform.
The blind tenor has confirmed to Italian press that he has been invited to
the wedding, but won't yet comment on whether he will treat the happy couple
and star-studded guests to a performance.
Giorgio Armani is designing Katie's wedding dress as well as a set of
outfits for her and Tom to wear during the three-day celebrations beginning
on November 17.
It is believed the 'Top Gun' actor has agreed to a compromise to appease
Katie's Catholic parents and there will be both a Scientology and Catholic
The former 'Dawson's Creek' actress is to wear Clive Christian No. 1
perfume, which costs $2,350 an ounce, during the extravagant nuptials
It is also rumoured that a number of Italian socialites are so keen to be at
the wedding, they are prepared to work at the big day.
A source said: "Several of the aristocratic female friends of Princess
Odescalchi, the owner of the castle location, apparently went to her and
asked to work for free as hostesses at the wedding.
"The princess' response to her friends was, 'No thank you. I don't even know
if I'm going to be invited myself.'"
She can't see much anyway.
According to reports, country music star Keith did not check himself into rehab to be treated for alcohol addition voluntarily last month, but because of a legal obligation in his prenup specified by Tom to protect his children with Nicole.
A source told Us Weekly magazine: "Nicole's lawyer put this clause in to demonstrate to Tom that Keith's past problems wouldn't affect the kids."
The 39-year-old 'Cold Mountain actress has two adopted children with Tom, Connor, 11, and Isabella, 13.
Since Nicole remarried she has not seen much of the children as they have spent most of their time with Tom and his new fiancée Katie Holmes.
Nicole has also had to put her baby plans on hold since Keith was admitted to rehab.
A source said: "Nicole will not entertain plans for kids until she is sure Keith is back on track and clean again. They are both very much in love and have often talked about starting a family but all that has been pushed aside while he deals with his problem. She already has two much-loved children and while she's mothering Keith she's hardly going to be in a good position to have more."
The couple married this summer and Nicole has made no secret that she would like to have a baby.
She said: "I'd like to give birth to a baby. I'd feel blessed if that was given to me."
Viacom chief Sumner Redstone on Tom Cruise in the December issue of Vanity Fair:
"He was embarrassing the studio. And he was costing us a lot of money."
"Paula [Redstone's wife], like women everywhere, had come to hate him. The truth of the matter is, I did listen to her . . .His behavior was entirely unacceptable to Paula and to the rest of the world. He just didn't turn one [woman] off. He turned off all women, and a lot of men."
Redstone pinpoints events that led to Tom's ultimate downfall:
"When did I decide [to fire him]? I don't know. When he was on the 'Today' show? When he was jumping on a couch at 'Oprah'? He changed his handler, you know, to his sister [LeAnne Devette] - not a good idea."
According to Redstone's calculations Cruise's wacky ways cost Paramount "$100 million, $150 million on 'Mission: Impossible III.' It was the best picture of the three, and it did the worst."
He added: "The explosion was good. It sent a message to the rest of the world that the time of the big star getting all this money is over. And it is! I would like to think that what I did, or what we did, has had a salutary effect on the rest of the industry."
The couple's rep, Arnold Robinson, confirms the wedding will take place November 18 in Italy--"All those details are correct," he says--and tells Us "proper security measures are being taken" to keep the vows private.
The invites are just the latest detail scratched off the couple's "I do" to-do list. Italian designer Giorgio Armani has confirmed to Us that he will create Holmes' wedding dress. "When I am asked by a friend to make a wedding wardrobe, it goes straight to my heart," Armani, who will also whip up Cruise's wedding wear, tells Us. "It really is an honor to play a small role in that milestone moment."
