Angelina's enigmatic tattoo may have been deciphered

The mystery of Angelina Jolie’s new tattoo may have been solved.

When eagle-eyed observers spotted a seventh tattoo added to the series on her arm, representing the latitude and longitude coordinates of the birthplaces of her six children, it immediately raised speculation that the Oscar winner was adopting again.

But a source tells People magazine the “Salt” star has no plans to adopt — and we’re inclined to believe the mag, since if Angie really was bringing home a baby, they’d already be negotiating a deal for exclusive photo rights.

So what’s up with the tat? The coordinates N 35°10’44” suggest that the new ink likely marks the coordinates of baby daddy Brad Pitt’s Shawnee, Okla., birthplace.

We’re fully anticipating a blitz of tabloid covers blaring, “Angelina Treats Brad Like a Child!”

Dancing Around the Truth

Natalie Portman has remained silent about the controversy over her Oscar-winning role in “Black Swan” — until now. After her dance double charged that Natalie did hardly any of the moves shown onscreen, director Darren Aronofsky and choreographer (and baby-daddy-to-be) Benjamin Millepied stepped up to defend their star. But now the actress has broken her silence, explaining why she didn’t speak up.

“I had a chance to make something beautiful with this film and I don’t want to give in to the gossip,” the “Your Highness” star explained to E!

“I know what went on,” the actress added. “We had an amazing experience making the movie. I don’t want to tarnish it by entering it into nastiness. I’m really proud of everyone’s work on the movie, my experience. I will have that forever. And it’s nice for me to know about that no matter what kind of nastiness or gossip is going around.”

And of course, by taking the “I’m taking the high road” road, Natalie only makes it look like her dance double is spreading jealous rumors.

Is Taylor a Player?

We’re on to you, Taylor Swift. You come off all aw-shucks sweet and innocent, but we’re starting to suspect you might be just as much of a player as, say, John Mayer is. (Wait, didn’t you date him? Aha!)

The country singer’s latest arm candy: “Country Strong” cutie Garrett Hedlund, with whom she dined in Nashville on April 1. They met at 8 p.m., and the actor returned to his hotel by 12:30 a.m.

“It was their first time going out,” a source told Us magazine. “They've been emailing for a while, and she hinted they should get together.”

Garrett is in the country-music capital of the world to record, you guessed it, a country album. But that doesn’t necessarily mean his tete-a-tete with the “Speak Now” star was a business dinner.

“She has actually spent time getting to know Garrett,” the insider notes. “He's cute — and he's into country music! [She] likes that he's a normal guy.”

Well, for Taylor, being a movie star and a country singer is indeed normal.

Chasing Mila

There are very few things Charlie Sheen could do to shock us at this point, and he’s just done one of them: express an attraction to a brunette.

Yep, the tiger-blood-fueled actor declared onstage during his “Torpedo of Truth” tour that he has his eye on actress Mila Kunis. And the blonde “goddesses” who cohabit with him have already given the “Black Swan” star their blessing: “She's pre-approved!” Charlie crowed.

We’re guessing that Mila is beefing up her security detail right about now.
