The latest celebrity gossip from the Press Association’s showbiz reporters
LINDSAY LOHAN has blamed loneliness, “sycophants and bad influences” for her troubles.
The 26-year-old is trying to salvage her acting career after being arrested several times and a few trips to rehab.
Lindsay told Us Weekly: “Kids go through ups and downs, try cigarettes, drugs and drinking. It’s human nature.
“It took a while but it’s like, ‘What was I thinking? Why did I allow so many sycophants and bad influences to be around me?’ I was lonely and I didn’t realise it.
“That’s why I came back home to New York. I never feel lonely there. I can see my family and I have really good people in my life.”
ROBBIE WILLIAMS has apparently declared he would like to be hailed as “a national treasure” like his former Take That bandmate GARY BARLOW.
Gary has just picked up an OBE from the Queen and Robbie told JAMES CORDEN on Sky 1 HD’s When Robbie Met James, he’d like the same recognition.
Robbie said: “Do I think I’m a national treasure? I don’t see why I shouldn’t be. I’m a good lad really.
“I have a gigantic ego and need to be at the top of the pile and be doing amazingly well; at the same time I’m pleased to be anywhere.”
TAYLOR SWIFT has admitted she’s got a soft spot for bad boys.
The I Knew You Were Trouble singer - who has most recently been linked to One Direction’s HARRY STYLES - told Parade magazine there is a “really interesting charisma involved” when it comes to stepping out with bad boys.
The 22-year-old said: “They usually have a lot to say, and even if they don’t, they know how to look at you to say it all.
“I think every girl’s dream is to find a bad boy at the right time, when he wants to not be bad any more.”
Suri Cruise reportedly flew to the UK to celebrate Thanksgiving with dad TOM CRUISE.
Tom split from Suri’s mother KATIE HOLMES in June and he has been in Britain filming All You Need Is Kill for the past few months, while his six-year-old daughter has been in New York with her mum.
The Daily Mail reports Suri came to join her father for the American holiday on Thursday.
Katie, 33, had the day off from her Broadway play Dead Accounts and was apparently spotted alone at LaGuardia airport preparing to board a commercial flight to Ohio to spend the holiday with her family.
ANGELINA JOLIE has revealed she and BRAD PITT were moved to tears watching new tsunami film The Impossible.
The actress is among a host of celebs backing the awards campaign for the film, which stars NAOMI WATTS and EWAN MCGREGOR and is the true story of a family who were holidaying in Thailand in 2004 when the Indian Ocean tsunami struck.
Angelina told The Daily Mail the film had made her and Brad cry.
The Oscar-winner hosted two special screenings of the film - directed by Spanish film-maker JUAN ANTONIO BAYONA - along with British director STEPHEN DALDRY, to help boost attention for the flick during awards season.
BRADLEY COOPER has joked that he and RYAN GOSLING competed over who was the sexiest when they worked together.
The Hangover star was crowned People magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive 2011, despite an internet campaign backing Ryan to win. The pair starred together in crime drama The Place Beyond The Pines, released earlier this year.
Bradley told more! magazine: “It was treacherous. We had Sexiest Man Alive matches every lunchtime. Who walked most sexily, who ate lunch most sexily, who opened doors most sexily. He won every time.”
CHANNING TATUM was recently unveiled as the Sexiest Man Alive for 2012.
