+ Three years following Brittany Murphy's death, the actress' final film, Something Wicked, is complete. An independent thriller directed by Darin Scott, the movie currently seeks a distributor.
+ When asked whether or not she would bring Catwoman back to the big screen, Anne Hathaway was ecstatic about the thought. She also cried at a press conference over talking about the idea of saying goodbye to the catsuit.
+ Judd Apatow becomes the third guest editor for Vanity Fair - appropriately for their first Comedy Issue. The three covers for the magazine - which comes out in December - feature a number of Apatow's regular actors, including his wife Leslie Mann, Paul Rudd, Kristin Wiig, and Will Ferrell.
+ Matt Damon has confirmed that he has been cast in George Clooney's latest directorial effort, The Monuments of Men.
Since 1995, Vanity Fair has been churning out legendary covers tipping its hat to Hollywood. And year after year, photographer Annie Leibovitz has been counted on to produce those stunning and memorable images. Remember the one with Tom Ford and the two nude ladies (Scarlett Johannson and Keira Knightley)? How about the cover with Uma, Kate and Cate?
This season, the magazine will honor the ‘Fresh Faces of 2008’:
Those pictured include: Emily Blunt (The Devil Wears Prada), Amy Adams (Enchanted), Jessica Biel (The Illusionist), Anne Hathaway (The Devil Wears Prada), Alice Braga (I Am Legend), Ellen Page (Juno), Zoë Saldana (Vantage Point), Elizabeth Banks (Fred Claus), Ginnifer Goodwin (Big Love), and America Ferrera (Ugly Betty).

After initially denying the rumors, Nicole Kidman’s rep has now confirmed the actress is pregnant. This news comes after the New York Post reported she had dropped out of an upcoming film (presumably for the health of the baby).
Kidman revealed in Vanity Fair interview last year that a miscarriage during her marriage to Tom Cruise led them to adopt their first child, Bella, now 14. They later added Connor, now 12, to their family.
This will be first child for both the Oscar-winning actress and her husband, singer Keith Urban. The two have been married since last June.

This year’s ‘It’ boy has just surpassed another noteworthy milestone on his rise to stardom: the drunken arrest.
The star of Disturbia, Surf’s Up and Transformers was detained early this morning in The Windy City after refusing to leave a Walgreens. A security guard, believing Shia LeBeouf to be drunk, told Shia to exit the store. The Chicago Police Department was then asked to step in when the actor refused to cooperate. (Apparently he’s not used to taking instruction from someone other than a director.) LeBeouf - who was reportedly ‘very courteous and polite’ with authorities - posted bail after being detained for several hours. He is scheduled to appear in court on November 28 for misdemeanor criminal trespassing.
Interestingly enough, the actor held off celebrating his 21st birthday last June because of his work on Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. LeBeouf told Vanity Fair he wanted to finish the Indy project before taking a sip. “People say, ‘What are you doing for your 21st birthday, Shia?’ And I’m like, ‘I’m making an Indiana Jones movie.’ What’s better than that?” (The movie is currently in post-production, so it appears he may have been a man of his word.)
And while news of a young male star slipping up is hard to come by these days, I found today’s celeb arrest to be mildly disappointing. Seriously—who hasn’t been kicked out of a store when they were 21?
