Alicia Silverstone, one of PETA's most outspoken celebrity supporters, is introducing a new accessory for the cruelty-free cause: a patch that reads, "Fake, for the Animals' Sake." A photo of the actress, in which she wears the patch proudly on her "pleather" biker-gear ensemble, can be accessed on PETA's CowsAreCool.com Web site, where the patches will be sold.
Viewers tuning in to catch some of Survivor's 15-minute stars—Jenna Lewis, Gervase Peterson, Sean Kenniff and Joel Klug—on the Nov. 10 Nash Bridges may have seen early reject Dirk Been lurking in the background of one scene. Been just happened to be in the San Francisco area, where filming took place, and despite any hostility on the island, he was welcomed with open arms by his fellow castaways.
Meanwhile, Survivor stalwarts who tune in to catch People's sexiest Survivor Rudy Boesch playing a Navy SEAL on the Nov. 14 episode of CBS's JAG might want to know that Boesch, who uses his real name in the show, didn't need much to look the part. Since the retired SEAL already had a crew-cut, Boesch was the only cast member who did not require a signed agreement to receive a military haircut.
Arnold Schwarzenegger was inspired by the idea of cloning, the concept behind his sci-fi thriller The 6th Day, opening Nov. 17. The actor revealed that duplicating himself would be the perfect solution to his busy life with wife Maria Shriver, an NBC news correspondent, and their four kids. "I'd love to be cloned," Schwarzenegger told one of the film's producers, Mike Medavoy. "As a matter of fact, one of me can play golf, the other one can take care of the kids and my wife, the third one can do some acting. Perfect!"
Lucky Numbers isn't an action film, but don't tell that to Lisa Kudrow. In it the Friends star plays an avaricious Lotto-ball girl at a Pennsylvania TV station who rigs the state lottery with the help of the station's weatherman John Travolta. In a pivotal scene Kudrow drives her car through the glass front of the station. Following in the big steps of action heroes like Sylvester Stallone, Tom Cruise and Harrison Ford, who do many of their own stunts, Kudrow herself is behind the wheel.
I'm told proud parents Jerry Stiller and Anne Meara (that's mom and pop to Ben Stiller) were heard laughing loudly in the back row of a Manhattan theater recently at their son's antics in his hit flick Meet the Parents.
