Have no doubt: No Doubt is sticking together. That's the word from lead singer Gwen Stefani, who says the band is not through, despite her work on a solo CD and a big-screen appearance opposite Leonardo DiCaprio.

"I thought it would be a good publicity stunt to say we were breaking up, but really we're not," Stefani, 34, tells Cosmopolitan magazine for its June issue.

"We decided after our album Rock Steady that we were going to take some time apart to pursue independent projects," she says. First up, in August, comes her solo CD: "a fun, '80s-inspired retro dance album. ... And I really wanted to do a movie."

That movie is The Aviator, the Howard Hughes biography starring DiCaprio and directed by Martin Scorsese, which started shooting in November.

In it, Cate Blanchett plays Katharine Hepburn, one of the eccentric aircraft entrepreneur's sexual conquests, and Kate Beckinsale plays another, screen siren Ava Gardner. Jude Law plays screen heel Errol Flynn.

"It's very small," Stefani admitted of her role as the tragic MGM blonde bombshell Jean Harlow.

"I was only shooting for four or five days so I'll barely be on screen for two minutes, which is so hilarious, because they're making it sound like I'm the star of the movie," she tells Cosmo.
