- Leonardo DiCaprio celebrated his nomination for the Best Actor Oscar by running up a £10,000 bar tab on a night out in London. The actor was in the city for the UK premiere of Blood Diamond and went for dinner at Japanese restaurant Roka with his co-stars Jennifer Connelly and Djimon Hounsou. Leo then went on to Boujis in South Kensington, then onto The Collection before heading back to the bar of his Knightsbridge hotel. A source close to the star commented: “He’s on such a high after being nominated. He doesn’t come to London very often and wanted to make the most of it.”
- Anne Heche has split from her husband, Coley Laffoon. Anne’s spokesperson told People magazine that the couple “have decided to separate,” and “they have requested that they be allowed their privacy at this time.” The couple married in September 2001 and have a four year old son, Homer. Anne has already been linked to her Men in Trees co-star James Tupper, who separated from his wife late last year.
- Anna Nicole Smith’s lawyer has delayed the proposed paternity DNA test of Anna Nicole’s baby daughter Dannielynn on the basis that an American doctor would need a work permit before taking the sample at Anna Nicole’s home in the Bahamas. After a court decision earlier this month, Anna Nicole was supposed to submit DNA samples of herself and of Dannielynn for testing by Tuesday. The judge in the case has now postponed the hearing until next month so that the work permit issue can be resolved.
