Christina Hendricks is too busty for dresses!



Get your low down on what's happening in the world of Hollywood, right here!

Mad Men star Christina Hendricks has revealed that she is still yet to find a designer who would loan her dresses.

According to the Daily Record, Hendricks, 35, who walked the red carpet at the Emmy Awards on August 29, revealed that she still finds it difficult to borrow dresses from high-end designers.

'People have been saying some nice, wonderful things about me. Yet not one designer in town will loan me a dress,' the New York Daily News quoted her as telling the Scottish newspaper.

'They only lend out a size 0 or 2. So I'm still struggling for someone to give me a darn dress,' she stated.

In the end, the size-14 actress, who usually dons designs by L'Wren Scott and Christian Siriano, opted to wear a lavender Zac Posen gown to the star-studded event.

'This has always been my size. I've worked on other shows with this same size but Mad Men celebrates it and that is nice,' she added.

Paris Hilton may face jail time

Prev     Next


Hotel heiress Paris Hilton is to be charged with possession of cocaine, an offense that could possibly lead to time behind bars.

The DA is said to have filed the case involving the socialite, who was allegedly caught with 0.8 grams of cocaine this weekend in Las Vegas, reports TMZ.

The police report says the cop who stopped the Escalade pulled along the passenger side of the vehicle and smelled "the strong odor of marijuana coming from the vehicle."

In the report, the cop says he noticed immediately the passenger was Hilton. He then observed her trying to roll up the window.

After the traffic stop and a crowd of 100 people gathered around, Hilton said she was "extremely embarrassed" and asked the cop if she could go to the bathroom at the Wynn Hotel.

At the hotel, Hilton told the cop she needed lip balm so the cop handed Hilton her purse: "As she began to open it, I saw a small bindle of what I believed to be cocaine in a clear baggie begin to fall from the purse and into my hand."

The cop also said that inside the purse was a "broken tablet of Albuterol" -- a prescription medication used to control wheezing. And cops say they found Zig Zag wrappers ... commonly used to roll joints.

Paris then admitted the Albuterol was hers but she said the cocaine was not and claimed the purse was not hers -- that she had borrowed it from a friend.

The cop questioned Paris about the cocaine and according to cops Paris gave an odd answer: "She said she had not seen it, but now thought it was gum."

Lady Gaga's mobile phone phobia

Prev     Next


Lady Gaga is scared of mobile phones, according to sources.

The singer is so terrified of using a mobile phone that she gets one of her entourage to key in numbers for her. They then hold the phone away from her head when she speaks.

GaGa is scared of developing a brain tumour.

It follows reports mobiles might increase cancer risks.

'Even though there's no firm evidence, it's really freaked her out,' the Sun quoted a source close to the star as saying.

'One of her team has to hold the phone so it isn't too close to her head. She then listens on the phone loudspeaker,' the source added.

A gang of boozed-up X Factor contestants has apparently trashed Simon Cowell's one-million-pound Spanish villa.

The furious 50-year-old has vowed the wannabes will have to compensate the damages from first royalty cheques.

The groups went on the rampage at his luxury seaside pad in Marbella.

It has been filmed for ITV1's X Factor and will be screened in October.

Sources said they all woke up early and made so much noise that they disturbed jet-lagged Cowell.

'Yes, they did wake me up. Any damage will have to be paid out of their first royalty cheque if they make it, to teach them a lesson,' the Daily Star quoted Cowell as saying.
