Has Jennifer Aniston already moved on to a new man? No sooner did news of her breakup with John Mayer break than the National Enquirer (which, let’s face it, has recently become a pretty credible source) breathlessly announced that she was “putting the moves” on model Matt Felker, 28. (You know him as the airplane hottie from Britney Spears’ “Toxic” video — we’re talking major “rrowr” here — and he used to date Selma Blair.)
But the hunk’s rep told “Access Hollywood” the report is “totally not true,” and a source explained that Jen just met Matt briefly recently. Too bad — he looks like he’d be the perfect rebound fling.
For the record, when John was asked by reporters about talk that Jen had someone new, he shrugged, “I don’t care,” according to OK!
Really? Just one week out? Either he and Jen were never that serious, or he’s a good bluffer.
Is Tyra Banks’ ebullient onscreen personality all an act? A source who attended a recent taping of her eponymous talk show carped to Page Six that the supermodel kept her audience waiting for two hours before turning on the faux charm — without even apologizing.
“You could hear her going on and on because she was standing right behind the stage curtain,” the audience member grumbled.
“She’s talking and talking. Meanwhile, you have the entire audience waiting almost two hours for the taping to start.”
“She leaves us waiting, and everyone is sitting there complaining, and then she comes out and doesn’t say a word about it. She didn’t even say hello, she got right into her script,” griped the source. “She acted so cold towards everyone. She’s a phony.”
During a segment when she interviewed fellow models, “Tyra kept saying, ‘When I was a model,’ and would hardly let them talk,” adds the source. “It was all about her, as usual.”
Well, it is her show, after all. And why attend the taping if you can’t stand her?
Madonna 50 years young
It’s hard to believe Madonna is actually 50, but the ageless pop icon indeed celebrated hitting the half-century mark Saturday. And feting her at London club Volstead — despite persistent divorce buzz — was director hubby Guy Ritchie, plus 90 guests.
“She looks better now than she ever has done,” Guy gushed, the U.K.’s Sun reports. “I’m so proud. I love her so much.”
According to Britain’s News of the World, Guy’s gift to Her Madgesty was to commission a $900,000 portrait of her from noted graffiti artist Banksy. Sounds like the perfect gift — after all, there’s nothing Madonna loves more than, well, herself!
No Holds Barr-ed
It’s been a minute since Roseanne Barr did anything controversial — but the comedian is rectifying that. Roseanne blasted “evil” Angelina Jolie on her blog for stating that she was undecided about which presidential candidate to back. (Hubby Brad Pitt got off with merely being called “vacuous.”)
Roseanne wrote that Brangelina “make about $40 million a year in violent, psychopathic movies and give away three of it to starving children, trying to look as if they give a crap about humanity as they spit out more dunces that will consume more than their fair share and wreck the earth even more.” (Somewhere, Jennifer Aniston is chuckling.)
“Miss Jolie says she likes [John] McCain too and hasn’t decided who to endorse … huh?” the former sitcom star continues. “Aren’t you supposed to be somewhat enlightened, or do you not know that the African daughter you hold in every picture” — that would be Ethiopia-born Zahara — ”had parents who suffered and died because of the Republican party’s worldwide economic assault on Africa over the last few decades since Reagan?”
Roseanne also suggests that Angie support Barack Obama because “it might be good for your Asian and African children’s self-esteem.”
Whatevs, Roseanne. We’re thinking that picking a fight with a superstar isn’t so much a political statement as it is a cry for attention.
