LeAnn Rimes's new country album is entitled This Woman
, but her husband, 24-year-old dancer Dean Sheremet, can always bring out the girl in her. "He's usually backstage [while I'm performing], and we're always making faces at each other," says Rimes, 22. "He has a mike that lets him talk into my ear monitors so he'll say crazy stuff and try to throw me off." Occasionally he succeeds. Admits Rimes: "One time, he was behind the speaker on the side of the stage and mooned my band and me. I was like, 'Oh my God, I can't believe he just did that!' My mouth was just wide open. That's Dean for you, though."
Just Say No to Leo
Not everybody's a fan of Leonardo DiCaprio
, as the actor discovered on a food run. "I went to a supermarket with my cap and glasses on, and I was on the cover of a magazine," says DiCaprio, 30, whose performance in The Aviator
earned him an Oscar nomination. "I was behind a woman at the checkout counter who was looking at the magazines. She turned to me and goes, 'There he is again, that Leonardo DiCaprio
. Don't you wish he'd just disappear?' I said [to myself], this is the moment where I either go, 'Do you know who I am?' or put my hat further down, pay for my Corn-Nuts and get out of there." So did he address the affront? No way, says DiCaprio. "I chose to avoid that."
Madsen Gets Grilled
Oscar nominee Virginia Madsen had some explaining to do about her onscreen smooch with Paul Giamatti in the comedy Sideways. "My son kept asking me whether I really liked Paul," says Madsen, 43, of her 10-year-old son Jack (dad is her ex, Antonio Sabáto Jr.). "He was very interested in knowing whether or not you have to like someone to kiss them onscreen." Madsen took the question in stride. "I told him, 'No, but it does help.' Fortunately, I adore Paul, and I have recently come to discover that he is really handsome in a tux."
What Not to Wear
's daughter Leni is 9 months old and already has a wardrobe to rival that of her model mom. "It's unbelievable," says Klum, 31, the host of Bravo's reality show Project Runway, whose season finale airs Feb. 23. "People send her crazy things—tutu dresses, little crowns, a jacket with feather boas and rhinestones." But for now, says Klum, Leni has her own style: "She likes to have nothing on. It's not easy [getting her dressed]. She doesn't cooperate." As for Klum, she also kicks back in comfy clothes she buys off the rack. "I go into Banana Republic, Zara, the Gap—you can't always run around in Manolo Blahniks and tight jeans."
