Scoop! Angelina to pack up and leave Hollywood?

There might be trouble in Brangelina-land.

Angelina Jolie wants to pack up the kids and leave Hollywood, where there’s a good chance her kids could grow up to be the next self-important, spoiled, clueless reality stars (ahem, Paris Hilton).

While her baby daddy, Brad Pitt, is content to stay in the Unite States, Jolie wants to travel with the couple’s three children and live in several different countries.

“She is not the homebody Brad is and wants the kids to grow up as ‘citizens of the world,’ speaking several languages and with a broad perspective on life,” a source told Britain’s Sunday Express. “She hates the idea of them growing up in the insular world of Hollywood as the spoiled brats of movie stars who expect everything to be handed to them on a plate.”

Are you ready to mock?

Madonna’s infamous mock crucifixion might get her arrested.

Prosecutors in Dusseldorf, Germany, say if the pop singer dons her crown of fake thorns and gets up on that mirrored cross during her weekend concert, she could be charged with insulting religious beliefs.

Oh, puh-leeze. If Madonna wasn’t arrested for “The Next Best Thing” for insulting moviegoers, then she won’t be arrested for this.

’TiLl death do us part or ’tilL there’s a series to promote

“Everybody Loves Raymond” star Brad Garrett and his wife of seven years, Jill Diven, got divorced … a year ago.

Garrett said that he and Diven, with whom he shares two children, ages 6 and 7, kept the split from everyone, including co-workers and even his parents. And we’re sure that his fessing up now has nothing to do with publicity for his new Fox sitcom “Til Death” premiering in the fall.

“Our No. 1 focus is our kids and parenting,” Garrett told USA Today. “We will always be friends because we will never be single parents. We will always be two parents.”

Diven seconded that emotion, saying she has “nothing but positive things to say about Brad. … People grow apart. We could do the ‘he said-she said’ thing, but that’s not us.”

Naomi’s risky business

Naomi Watts literally went out on a ledge during a photo shoot for the cover of Conde Nast Traveler.

The blond beauty, wearing a lilac Roberto Cavalli gown, climbed out of the 61st floor of the Chrysler Building in New York and stood on top of one of the gargoyles.

“How can I book Naomi for jobs, if she’s dead?” Watt’s manager complained, according to The New York Post.

But the “King Kong” star could not resist a trip to the danger zone.

“I couldn’t believe what I was being asked to do,” she said. “I knew I had to do it!”

Keira: Come On, Hit me with your best shot, Jack

Keira Knightley is a little disappointed that Jack Nicholson didn’t try to get with her at the Academy Awards.

The “Pirates of the Caribbean” star, who was nominated for best actress for her performance in “Pride & Prejudice,” said she was seated next to the notorious flirt during the telecast, but he never made a move.

“I was speechless sitting next to Jack Nicholson at the Oscars,” Knightley told Life & Style Extra. “I can’t remember what he said to me. Everyone asked if he tried to hit on me, but he didn’t. It’s actually kind of embarrassing that he didn’t.”
