PASSAGES; 'Clones' Box Office Shrinks
ADJUSTED: 20th Century Fox wrongly reportedly its box office take for "Star Wars: Episode II -- Attack of the Clones" by some $6 million, reports Reuters. Rather than making $116.3 million in its first four days, as Fox claimed and PEOPLE.com reported on Monday, the picture actually took in $110.2 million. The adjusted figures do not alter the picture's No. 1 box-office standing for the weekend or its place in the record books, however . . . SETTLED: Judith Soltesz-Benetton, 28, daughter-in-law of Italian fashion designer Luciano Benetton and the subject of a topless sunbathing spread in the June issue of Penthouse (misidentified as Russian tennis ace Anna Kournikova, 20), agreed on Monday to settle her $10 million lawsuit against the publication, reports Reuters. Financial terms of the settlement were not revealed, and Penthouse's attorney also issued a letter of apology . . . NAMED: Hong Kong kung fu movie star Jackie Chan, 48, has won the 2002 Taurus Award for best action movie star, according to the World Stunt Awards Web, reports Reuters. He succeeds last year's winner, Arnold Schwarzenegger, 54, who presented the honorary award from Los Angeles on Sunday via live satellite to Chan, who was in Prague filming his new action movie "Shanghai Knights." The nearly 1,000 members of the World Stunt Academy selected Chan as their man. Way to go, Jackie.
