Scoop: Lindsay sticks up for her little sister

Lindsay Lohan has endured her fair share of cosmetic-enhancement rumors, but when it comes to little sister Ali, she refuses to let them fly. After recent online buzz that the 14-year-old “Living Lohan” star and aspiring singer might have had breast implants, LiLo took to her MySpace blog to debunk it.

Lindsay writes that she felt “a bit sick to my stomach” when a paparazzo accosted her with the question, “Hey, Lindsay, what do you have to say about people commenting on your sister’s implants?”

“My mother taught us to appreciate what we have been given,” Lindsay says (which, of course, explains why mom Dina is always blond and tan), adding that Mama Lohan would never “encourage or allow a 14-year-old child to alter her body.”

“It is hard enough being 14 years old and you have enough insecurities to begin with, then add being in the public eye,” the “Mean Girls” star fumes. “I just find it really disconcerting that people have to focus on the negative and that some people are sooooo bored with their own lives that they need to manifest lies to hurt another person.”

OK, Linds, but when you sign up for a reality show, you’re not just “in the public eye,” you’re inviting people to judge you.

Baled Out

Batman will remain a free man. Christian Bale won’t face charges over the July incident in a London hotel room that led to his arrest for assault.

The “Dark Knight” star allegedly had a row, as the Brits call it, with his mother and sister (which, according to some reports, did not actually get physical).

But after reviewing the case, prosecutors concluded Thursday that “there is insufficient evidence to afford a realistic prospect of conviction, and accordingly the police have been advised that no further action should be taken against Mr. Bale.”

Still, we’re guessing the Bale family won’t be exchanging Christmas cards this year.

Scarlett: Wedding plans

Scarlett Johansson may make a splash on the red carpet, but when it comes to walking down the aisle, she reportedly wants to keep it low-key.

Friends of the “Vicky Cristina Barcelona” star tell OK! that ScarJo and actor fiancé Ryan Reynolds — who haven’t set a date yet — are mulling a simple civil ceremony, with only Scarlett’s twin brother Hunter present as a witness.

“Scarlett’s not big on some over-the-top wedding with white doves and 300 guests,” one friend told the tabloid. (Evidently, she’s the anti-Eva Longoria.)

Aside from the fact that he’ll save big on catering, how does Ryan feel about getting married in such a stripped-down setting?

Friends say, “He’s just so excited she said ‘yes’ that he doesn’t care when or where they wed, as long as she says ‘I do.’”

Can you blame him?
