THICKE ACCUSED OF CHEATING
The woman photographed with Robin Thicke’s hand on her butt at a VMA party last month claims more than just a little groping went on. 20-year-old Lana Scolaro tells Life & Style she hooked up with the “Blurred Lines” singer, even though his wife Paula Patton was with him. Lana claims the 36-year-old Thicke approached her at the 1Oak party and told her, “I just love the fact that you’re so young.” She then accompanied Robin and Paula to a party at a suite in the Greenwich Hotel. “He turned off the lights so no one could see us, and he started making out with me.” she said. “He was grabbing me. He was like, ‘I want to get you into bed.’” And while you’d think the story would have Paula fuming, she doesn’t seem worried about the tale. A rep for the actress told Life & Style, “It’s just a girl looking for some attention. Paula and Robin aren’t concerned.”
STARS WHO DIDN’T GET FIFTY SHADES OF GREY
Fans are still up in arms over the Fifty Shades of Grey casting, but they may not realize how many people turned down the roles before Charlie Hunnam and Dakota Johnson were cast. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Ryan Gosling was the first choice to play Christian Grey, but he had no interest. Then Tron Legacy’s Garrett Hedlund was offered the role but he “couldn’t connect with the character.” As for Anastasia Steele, Like Crazy’s Felicity Jones was up for the part but was considered too old, and Shailene Woodley had “conflicting press obligations.” Elizabeth Olsen was also reportedly on the list.
GWEN STEFANI RUMORED TO BE PREGNANT
Gwen Stefani may be adding to her family. In Touch Weekly claims the 43-year-old No Doubt frontwoman and husband Gavin Rossdale are expecting their third child. “Gwen and Gavin couldn't be happier,” claims an insider. “She’s just trying to focus on resting right now. She wants to make sure that all is well with the baby.” The couple, who married in 2002, are already parents to sons Kingston, 7, and Zuma, 5.
