I have some fun bits of news, courtesy of IMDb, and it starts with Lindsay Lohan.

Now, the girl has done some stupid things in her day...you know, like snorting coke in a bathroom. But the "ugly" picture of her sleeping is just ridiculous. So what if her mouth is open? It's not even that unattractive. She's not drooling and she doesn't look like a scary 1930's Hollywood monster. She looks like a girl who's trying to get some sleep anywhere she can. She's sitting in a car, for god's sake. It's practically gravity that her mouth would fall open as she sleeps upright. And who hasn't slept like that? So why are we all ragging on her for it?

Other than her mouth open, she looks good. She's well put together, her mascara isn't running, she isn't showing any inappropriate body parts (I'm looking at you, Britney). The girl was just tired.

Seriously? Lindsay Lohan gives the word "exploited" an entirely new meaning.

On a bit of a lighter side to this story, her recent DUI landed her in rehab and a friend spoke on her behalf to say: "She just needs to be away from everyone and not get attacked by the paparazzi. She's doing really, really well. She probably should be there and it will be the best for her. I think now she's ready for it."

Good for her. I hope she lives long enough so that some day, we can all look back and laugh at her troubled past and she can go on to be successful and happy (Drew Barrymore-style).

In other news, the marketing campaign for the new Fantastic Four movie released a silver coin, in attempts to play up their new Silver Surfer franchise. Unfortunately, the coin has been deemed illegal by the US government as one side reflects the traditional image of George Washington ("it is a federal crime to turn any form of legal tender into advertising").

Bad luck, Fantastic Four. As if your movie weren't doomed already...the up shot? It does stand a chance, thanks to Jessica Alba.

Also, David Hyde Pierce has revealed he is gay in a written interview on CNN.com. In the article, the journalist writes: "Pierce got to Los Angeles in the early 1990s when his partner, actor-writer-producer Brian Hargrove, wanted to write for television."

Not that it's a big shock or anything, but it's nice that he's finally out.

Hargrove, for those interested, was a creator and writer/producer/director for the show "Titus."

-------------------

Diane English (creator and writer/producer of "Murphy Brown") is making her directorial debut re-making George Cukor's 1939 film "The Women." The film is about a wealthy New Yorker who leaves her cheating husband and bonds with other society women at a resort and originally starred Joan Crawford, Norma Shearer, Rosalind Russell, and Joan Fontaine.

The film is set to star Meg Ryan, Annette Bening, Eva Mendes, Jada Pinkett Smith, Debra Messing and Candice Bergen. The IMDb page also lists Anne Hathaway and Lisa Kudrow, but they are unconfirmed.

-------------------

Finally, Brad and Angelina's son Pax Thien has officially been become a Jolie-Pitt.

And, Beyoncé has said she wants kids, but won't have them for 10 years because: "there are still so many things I need to accomplish."
