Kate Moss

Let’s face it, the BAFTA’s is one of THE events of the year, missing it is not an option…unless you’re Kate Moss. Yes the model skipped the ceremony on Sunday because she couldn’t find the right dress. Kate and her boyfriend, ‘The Kills’ guitarist Jamie Hince, reportedly opted for an early night after Kate couldn’t decide on an outfit. A friend said: “Kate’s friends were waiting for her to turn up, only to be told she had settled into her favourite Sunday night TV. But then Kate had a change of heart and said she’d be on her way after she’d picked the right dress. Just when everyone thought she’d be joining them, Kate called back to say she’d changed her mind as she wasn’t happy with how she looked in anything.”  What, nothing good enough in your Topshop range Kate?

Kylie Minogue

Kylie Minogue

Kylie Minogue has several boyfriends, and here we were thinking she was all loved up with Andres. Kylie has been romantically linked with Spanish model Andres Velencoso since October but friends insist their relationship is not serious and she is still dating other people. Author Kathy Lette – a close pal of the singer – said: “Andres is gorgeous but I don’t know if he’s the main one. I think she’s got a few on the menu. Kylie is just having some time off to have fun at the moment. She works too hard so she deserves it.” Kylie also made an appearance at the BAFTAs last weekend. Although she looked stunning in her LBD, we couldn’t help but be distracted by her very shiny, wrinkle free forehead. Could it be a case of botox at the BAFTAs?

Will Smith

Will Smith

Will Smith has been named the most bankable star in Hollywood. Will topped Forbes.com’s Star Currency list, which ranks stars according to their financial power at the box office.  Forbes said: “Will Smith stands alone as the only actor to score a perfect 10 among industry voters in the Star Currency survey.” John Burman, of Forbes Media, has praised Will’s acting talents, saying: “He can move from doing the pop film to an ‘Ali‘ to a ‘Seven Pounds’ to ‘The Pursuit of Happyness’, so he’s able to play in all worlds and I think people just like watching him on screen.” Will’s last eight films have all opened at number one in the US box office, and worldwide his three top-grossing films alone have made more than $2 billion. Johnny Depp, Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio and Angelina Jolie all tied for second place in the survey, with a star currency score of 9.89. Factors used to determine stars’ currency ratings included the box office success of their films, the ability to attract financing for a project and their appeal to different audience demographics.  The results are based on surveys of 150 movie professionals including directors and producers, who were asked to rate over 1,400 actors.
