Kate Beckinsale, who recently ended her nine-year relationship with actor Michael Sheen, the father of their four-year-old daughter, Lily, is dating Len Wiseman, the director of the upcoming "Underworld," the vampire film in which both Kate and her ex-boyfriend have roles. Interesting. Wiseman’s own marriage ended in December, and he and Kate have been together ever since. Her newest movie, "Van Helsing," is another vampire extravaganza opposite Hugh Jackman — he bites her good — and she has just bought a house in Beverly Hills, where she is planning to move. One hears there are vampires there, too, but you know how people exaggerate.
Drew Barrymore,with the acting blue blood in her veins, is trying to prove it again these days. Now she’s working on producing a remake of the 1968 futuristic classic, "Barbarella," which shot Jane Fonda into the stratosphere as a sex symbol. The original screenplay, which was based on a French comic strip set in the 41st century, is being written by John August, who wrote Drew’s two "Charlie’s Angels" films. She, of course, will star as Barbarella and has asked Jane Fonda if she would like a cameo. But 66-year-old Jane must have thought she was just too old for a fur bikini because she told Drew thanks, but no thanks. Politely, naturally, because Jane was Hollywood royalty before Drew was even born.
Justin Timberlake, who recently wowed them at the New York Grammys, has been voted the Sexiest Man in the World by readers of British Marie Claire magazine. But when he was recently asked about girls, Timberlake said, "I’m never going to find someone as good as my mother, am I?" Oh my, and just in time for Mother’s Day, too.
