Glee‘s Ryan Murphy Writing A New Musical Movie For Gwyneth Paltrow

The legacy of Country Strong lives on: Glee‘s Ryan Murphy is planning a Gwneth Paltrow musical movie, costarring Bridesmaids star and SNL alum Maya Rudolph. “We want to do a musical together — an original,” Murphy told E! at the Emmys, “For Gwyneth and Maya Rudolph, both of whom I’m great friends with.” Um, we all saw Maya doing the damn thing at the Emmys on Sunday, right? Give Paltrow a prop mic, stick her in the back and you’re half-way to the first curtain call as we type this.

We’ve long known that the Gwyneth Paltrow is Ryan Murphy’s muse for the work he does with those lovable kids at fictional McKinley High, but Murphy first worked with Paltrow on the 2006 film Running With Scissors. “That’s all I will say,” Murphy said, before clamming up about his new film, though he did admit, “I loved Country Strong. I love it when she’s drunk and on the floor spitting up pills.” Okay, we can see that. It’ll be like Rent with a splash of GOOP. We can get on board that.

Charlie Sheen’s Already Won With His Two And A Half Men Settlement

Chuck Lorre‘s vision of Charlie Sheen‘s death scene on Two And A Half Men may have given him some modicum of vengeance, but he’s definitely not getting the last laugh. With the settlement Charlie is getting from Warner Bros post getting kicked off the show, he’s not winning anymore — he’s already won.

The company is going to be coughing up $25 million to hand over to him in the next two weeks, as that’s what they owe him for his work. But check this out. Considering Charlie did just under 200 episodes for the show, the syndication profits to be given to him over the nest 7-10 years add up to $100 MILLION. Which means we’re going to hear him laughing all the way to the bank for the next decade.

Gavin Rossdale: All Parents Make Sacrifices

Gavin Rossdale: All Parents Make Sacrifices

Back on the road these days with his recently reunited band Bush, dad-of-two Gavin Rossdale knows first hand how hard it is to juggle career and kids. So how do he and his wife Gwen Stefani make time for their work, their boys Kingston, 5, and Zuma, 3, and each other? “We muddle our way through it,” he tells US magazine in a new interview. Here are a few of the highlights:

On balancing work and family: “I just accept that those are the sacrifices you make and it’s inevitable that anyone who has kids makes sacrifices… And my kids get the benefit of me working at home at the studio… Nothing’s perfect and everything has its price. But I think that I will want to instill the value in them of applying yourself and the value of sacrifice, and what it takes.”

On who the boys take after: “You want them to take after you when they do things well. When they do anything bad you wanna blame the other genes, but really they’re so phenomenally their own people. That’s almost the most incredible part of it, that you can see elements of both of us in both of them… I’m happy to say they’re got really good, funny characters and they’re polite.”

On how he and Gwen juggle their busy schedules: “We muddle our way through it. It’s just about the communication and also just the space. The one thing that’s always been so good for us is to understand each other’s timetables and commitments and responsibilities. She’s in a huge, high-powered, creative set-up with her band and she’s making a great record, and I can confirm it’s great. But that takes time and effort, and no one wants to leave their kids for work.. Too much in this world is, people assume that things come naturally, when I think it’s an essential life lesson to learn that it takes trying, try again, try again, it takes reworking it, it takes a lot of effort, it’s not just a life of dilettante.”

The Evolution Of Heidi Montag: From Small Town Girl To Hollywood Barbie

Birthday girl Heidi Montag‘s drastic transformation may be nine months old, but on the 25th anniversary of her birth we could think of no more appropriate way to celebrate the constantly evolving starlet’s special day than to reminisce over her appearance old and new.
From the Colorado native’s fresh-faced days on The Hills to obtaining some big ol’ hills of her own, Heidi’s transformation to life-sized doll is nearly complete. Montag claims to regret some of the work she’s had done, but we have a feeling this spotlight addict’s makeover is hardly finito. Here are 25 photos dating back to 2006 documenting Heidi’s journey from Plain Jane to Playboy covergirl. [Photos: Getty Images]
