Why the Fug Isn’t Anybody Paying Attention to Michael Jackson?
With the Jolie-Pitts invading the city in their armored SUVs, we’re hardly surprised that other celebrity tidbits have been swept under the rug — clearly, by-the-hour updates of what Maddox is up to at the park would supersede news of what Tinsley has done with her hair, or which blast of hot air most recently burst from Trump’s blowhole.

Photogs Love Leary, and Other Pap Tales From the ‘Delirious’ Screening

Thorne, who said she gets her paparazzi-handling tips from Parker Posey, confessed that Denis Leary regularly gets stalked by photogs on the set of Rescue Me, where she plays his love interest. “We’re trying to shoot a scene that’s very serious and dramatic,” she said, and “all of the sudden out of the bushes a paparazzo jumps out. We all break and laugh, but Denis gets cranky. That’s probably the most crazy I’ve seen people get — around Denis.” (Who knew?)
