Apparently every female in Hollywood is clamouring for the lead in the planned movie of Wonder woman.

Jennifer Love Hewitt is pushing for the role along with other Hollywood stars Megan Fox, Eliza Dushku, Sandra Bullock and Beyonce Knowles – who have all been rumoured to be of interest to studio heads.

Hewitt, who starred in ‘I Know What You Did Last Summer’ and its sequel and can be seen on TV in ‘Ghost Whisperer’, is now pleading with studio bosses to hire her for the part.

The 31-year-old said “I’m fighting so hard. I think Warner Bros is getting ready to make Wonder Woman and I really want to play Wonder Woman. I am obsessed with Wonder Woman.”

So who do you think should be wonder Woman, or was Lynda Carter perfect?

She is renowned for her toned body and is preparing to host a new weight-loss reality TV show – so it’s no surprise to see Mel B has thrown herself behind another fitness campaign.
The former Spice Girl showed off her buff figure in London today, where she launched International Fitness Week.

The 34-year-old is no stranger to exercise – she slimmed down by training for the U.S. show Dancing With The Stars and then released her DVD Totally Fit: Mel B. She then famously flaunted her six-pack in a range of skimpy outfits when she took part in a raunchy Las Vegas burlesque show last year.

Mel, who has been on a whirlwind trip to Frankfurt and Amsterdam as part of International Fitness Week, said she wanted to inspire people to make a healthy lifestyle change by finding out what kind of fitness activity best suited them.

‘I want to encourage everyone to find what works for them and make being active part of their lifestyle.  It’s easier than you think to get totally fit and we will show you how,’ she said.

Mel B, who was known as Scary Spice when she was part of the famous girl band, has recently been lined up to host the second series of Dance Your Ass Off, a successful show on U.S., lifestyle channel Oxygen.
The programme sees contestants lose weight by jiving with a pro dance partner. The singer, real name Melanie Brown, has a new six-bedroom hillside home in Los Angeles which she shares with her film producer husband, Stephen Belafonte and their children. The eldest is Mel’s daughter Phoenix, ten, from her brief marriage to dancer Jimmy Gulzar.

Stephen’s daughter Giselle, five, from a past relationship, also spends weekends with the couple, sharing a bedroom with Melanie’s younger daughter, Angel,  three, whose father is Eddie Murphy.

Mel B and her bandmates Mel C, Emma Bunton, Victoria Beckham and Geri Halliwell are also in talks to develop the Spice Girls musical for the West End..
It is being produced by the mastermind behind the phenomenal success of Mamma Mia!
The show Viva Forever – the title of a Spice Girls hit – is yet to be written but Judy Craymer, the main architect behind the stage show Mamma Mia!, said she expected it to be on the London stage within two or three years.

Kate Winslet has accepted £25,000 libel damages over a claim that she publicly lied about her exercise regime.
The 34-year-old Oscar-winning actress was not at London’s High Court for the settlement of her action against Associated Newspapers.

Her solicitor, Rachel Atkins, told Mr Justice Eady that she had sued over an article entitled “Should Kate Winslet win an Oscar for the world’s most irritating actress?”, which appeared in the Daily Mail in January.

Ms Atkins said the story, which was accompanied by several naked photographs of the actress in various films, was offensive in tone.

She said: “The claimant has frequently asserted the right of women to accept the way that they look and by accusing her of trying to mislead the public, the defendant caused her a great deal of distress. It was simply not true.”

She added that the newspaper published an apology in September, accepting that Winslet had not been duplicitous, and had agreed to pay the damages and costs.

A statement issued by the actress said: “I am delighted that the Mail have apologised for making false allegations about me.

Kate Winslet“I was particularly upset to be accused of lying about my exercise regime and felt that I had a responsibility to request an apology in order to demonstrate my commitment to the views that I have always expressed about body issues, including diet and exercise.

“I strongly believe that women should be encouraged to accept themselves as they are, so to suggest that I was lying was an unacceptable accusation of hypocrisy.”

Kate recently took the Best Actress Oscar for her role in The Reader and also went back to the big screen with Leonardo DiCaprio for the movie Revolutionary Road – which was also directed by husband Sam Mendes

Keisha Buchanan is the only member of the original line-up still left in the band and the girls have been quick to silence talk of disagreements between her and Amelle following the latter’s solo chart success with Tinchy Stryder.

According to a celebrity website, Amelle will be replaced by former UK Eurovision entrant Jade Ewen.

The Sugababes’ spokeswoman would not comment on reports about the personnel changes in the band.

The thrid album ‘Sweet 7‘ is due for release in november 2009 which features the single ‘Get sexy‘.

Sarah Brightman is currently shooting a ‘romantic comedy’ movie along with Richard E Grant – yes its true! The movie is titled Cosi and is based on Mozart’s opera Cosi Fan Tutte.

Cosi is Directed by BAFTA winner Chris Menaul and the screenplay was apparently the last written by Sir John Mortimer, of Rumpole fame, who died in January.
Stephen Evans is the producer, whose credits include Henry V, Much Ado About Nothing and The Madness of King George. His 14 feature films have garnered 11 Oscar nominations and won two Oscars.

Sarah, who plays Celia, is no stranger to musicals having starred in the likes of ‘The Phantom of the Opera‘ but she isn’t quite so well known for her acting skills although she became a cult hit after appearing as ‘Blind Mag’ in the horror/sci-fi rock opera Repo: The genetic opera.
However, producer Selywn Roberts said that she and her fellow cast members have put in some top drawer performances so far.

Blind Mag“Obviously everyone knows Sarah has a cracking voice but she is excelling with her acting and she is a natural comedienne”.

The filming is expected to finish around Christmas time and be premiered at Cannes next year.

Rumor has it that Sarah has dug deep into her own pockets to save the £5m film from collapse, according to insiders on the movie.
Producers were facing financial difficulties and the project was in doubt right up until the last minute. But shooting is now under way at the palatial Manderston House in Berwickshire.

An insider involved in the film revealed Ms Brightman, the former Mrs Andrew Lloyd Webber and dancer in Hot Gossip, saved the day in a deal that involved up to £400,000 of her own money.

The film’s official spokeswoman Wendy Kidd initially said the producers would not discuss any aspect of the budget.

Over at myspace a message was recently posted from the sugababes official page that says the following;

Heidi and Amelle are suffering with a severe bout of flu. They’ve been instructed to take at least a week off before a reassessment and so will unfortunately be out of action for at least the next 7 days.

If you’d like to leave a message for the girls below, we’ll make sure it’s passed on to them.

Lets hope its not Swine flu, considering the country is currently in a pandemic!

Amelle-Berrabah01Sugababes have been playing various festivals this summer including headlining Ponty’s Big Weekend festival in Wales and have recently returned from The States where they have been recording their 7th album after signing with Jay-Z’s Roc-a-Fella label and say they loved the chance to work with singers and producers including Ne-Yo, Stargate and RedOne.

Singer Keisha Buchanan said: “I think it’s given us a fresh energy again. I think the one thing we wanted to do was come back with something different. With each album we’ve always worked with a new producer and come out with a single which is so standout from the rest of the album.

“I think with their energy coming in, it’s definitely given us some life. It’s definitely got the British feel throughout the album – we’ve not gone away and gone ‘All American’ on our fans.”

Her bandmate Heidi Range added: “We had a fantastic time and worked with some of the biggest producers in the world at the moment. It was a really exciting process for us.”

The group have experienced several line-up changes before arriving at current formation of Keisha, Heidi and Amelle Berrabah but despite the upheaval, Keisha – the only remaining founder member – insists they have no plans to call it a day.

She added to BBC Newsbeat: “We’ll keep going just as long as we’re happy. I think the moment when we’re not really enjoying it anymore we’ll probably call it a day. ”
The current line up have released, Change, Catfights & Spotlights as well as the ‘Overloaded‘ Greatest Hits CD and DVD

Former actress turned animal rights campaigner Brigitte Bardot has asked France’s first lady, Carla Bruni-Sarkozy, to convince her husband to ban bull-fighting.

The 1960s blonde bombshell asked Mrs Bruni-Sarkozy, in a letter, to get behind her campaign and sway President Nicolas Sarkozy on the issue.

She wrote “Could you convince your husband to ban bullfights, this atrocious spectacle of death, by telling him ‘someone told me France must no longer allow the death of a tortured animal’?”

The letter thanked former supermodel Bruni-Sarkozy for taking a public stance against wearing fur.
carla-bruni01Bruni-Sarkozy wrote to PETA (People for Ethical Treatment of Animals) last month assuring the organisation that she would never buy, wear or own fur.
“I can’t tell you how important this stance is in the struggle I have pursued for so many years,” Bardot wrote.

The 74-year-old retired from showbusiness 30 years ago and has concentrated all her attention on animal welfare.

Bullfighting is a deep-rooted tradition in Southern France which involves bulls being ritually killed in a ring in front of an audience.
Bardot also wrote to Mr Sarkozy earlier in the year asking for a ban on seal products because of the cruelty involved in their manufacture.
Bardot’s glittering career saw her star in 48 films, numerous musical shows and record 80 songs. Highlights of which were the movies ‘And god created woman‘ and alongside Dirk Bogard in the classic British comedy ‘Doctor at Sea‘.

During the 1990s she became outspoken in her criticism of immigration, some aspects of homosexuality and Islam in France.
Bardot has been convicted five times for “inciting racial hatred”.
