Michael Crichton and his fourth wife, Anne-Marie, have settled their divorce, which she filed last year, after 13 years of marriage. The creator of TV’s "ER" and the author of such bestsellers as "Jurassic Park" and "The Andromeda Strain" gave his wife more than $30 million, the art collection, the big New York estate and their 20 horses. They will have joint custody of their 15-year-old daughter, Taylor.
He is keeping the balance of his fortune, which is estimated to be worth more than $200 million, the Hawaiian estate and very importantly to him, some of his favorite things, including two rugs from the New York house and a pair of rusting trucks. Rusting trucks? That’s right.
Charlize Theron, who plays Donald Sutherland’s daughter in "The Italian Job," learned how to crack a safe for her role in the movie. "It’s simple," she laughs. That’s easy for her to say. Forget cracking anything. She can "have" the combination to my safe any day, says a frothing fan. Male, as in fan male.
Isabella Rossellini’s 18-year-old daughter, Elettra Wiedemann, her child with ex-husband John Wiedemann, has made her modeling debut in the new Abercrombie & Fitch catalog. The dark-haired beauty bears a striking resemblance to her mother and grandmother, Ingrid Bergman, and was handpicked by photographer Bruce Weber to pose for the campaign, which features her in a number of sexy but tasteful shots, whatever that means. Everyone knows by now that the catalog is filled with oodles of scantily dressed models, including the odd nude, but Elettra has kept her clothes on because her mother told her to. None of this taking it all off for her little girl. None of this going too far, too fast.
