I normally don't traffic in Hollywood news, but these are the items that make life worth living

1. Hilary Swank, who will next be seen in a rock-'em-sock-'em plague movie, was injured on the set of P.S., I Love You by Gerard Butler's suspenders. Can anyone fathom how this could've happened?

2. Ellen Burstyn finally comments on her 14-second performance in Mrs. Harris, for which she received an Emmy nomination for best supporting actress in a miniseries or TV movie: "I thought it was fabulous. My next ambition is to get nominated for seven seconds, and, ultimately, I want to be nominated for a picture in which I don't even appear." I love this woman.

Hilary Swank was injured during a strip-tease being performed by Gerry Butler. She got a laceration in the forehead & had to get sutures. If that's the price to pay for watching Gerry take it all off, then sign me up!!!

As a small-time actor, I have also been involved in suspender pranks. I never thought it would be a part of that oh-so-professional world that is Hollywood. (does Burstyn offer advice in her memoir on how to get nominated for awards without being even eligible?)
