Cate Blanchett

Oh dear Sienna, things seem to be going from bad to worse for you. First there was her very publicised personal life coming under scrutiny and now her professional life has taken a down turn. Cate Blanchett is rumoured to replace Sienna Miller in ‘Nottingham‘. Cate  is expected to take on the role of Maid Marian in the heavily-delayed film which takes an alternative look at folk hero Robin Hood. Actor Mark Strong, who is believed to be playing one of the chief villains in the film -Sir Guy of Gisbourne – said: “I think Cate Blanchett is set to take the Maid Marian part. She is a wonderful actress and it would make it a much classier film if she was in it,” Sienna, 27, was confirmed to have left the project in January, amidst rumours her character would have shown up leading man Russell Crowe, because she was too thin and youthful for the role. The ‘Gladiator‘ star is playing both the outlaw Robin Hood and his nemesis The Sheriff of Nottingham in the movie, with the story centring on a love triangle between Russell’s characters and Maid Marian. The production is scheduled to begin shooting next month.

With all the doom and gloom I felt you needed something to make you laugh, if this doesn’t do it, I don’t know what will. Yes, Paris Hilton wants to duet with Sir Paul McCartney. With one failed album behind her, Paris is said to have cornered the Beatles legend at the Grammy Awards after-show party (08.02.09) and proposed a musical collaboration. According to Britain’s The Sun newspaper, Paris was reportedly overheard saying: “I’d love to do a duet with you. I’m a singer too and have had an album out.” Paul politely told ‘The Simple Life’ star he would consider her offer. An onlooker said: “Sir Paul was minding his own business when Paris traipsed right up to him and introduced herself. He looked bemused, smiled and nodded – then stumbled out that he’d have to check his schedule. I don’t think we’ll be hearing the duet any time soon.” After posing her musical suggestion to the 66-year-old artist, Paris went on to compliment him on his hair. She said: “It’s just like in The Beatles. It’s so cute.” Oh dear Paris, I can assure you we are all cringing for you.
