Meanwhile, Kidman’s ex-husband, Tom Cruise, has been joined by Penélope Cruz in New Zealand, where he’s filming "The Last Samurai."

Sad but true: It’s all over between Kate Beckinsale and her lover Michael Sheen. They have been together for nine years and have a four-year-old daughter. Kate has been in Prague filming the vampire movie, "Van Helsing," with Hugh Jackman, while Michael is in London preparing to star in the title role of "Caligula" by Albert Camus. The split is supposed to be mutual. At least, they’ve left Nicole Kidman out of it.
Tomorrow night, the London Symphony Orchestra will celebrate the 75th birthday of Sir Colin Davis at its New York gala at the Metropolitan Club.
