Things are getting wild Down Under for the Hoff!
The actor spent Wednesday teasingly Tweeting photographs of what appeared to be a marriage proposal to girlfriend Hayley Roberts, then headed to the Taronga Zoo, where he skirted questions from reporters and enjoyed the company of Aussie animals, including a grey kangaroo named Cobar.
"We're not making any comments about our personal life right now," he told Sydney's Daily Telegraph. "What we are doing is spending a day at the zoo."
The engagement photographs turned out to be illusions, but the animals were real.

Pamela Bach, ex-wife of David Hasselhoff, was taken into custody at a downtown Los Angeles jail Thursday to begin a three-month sentence in a driving-under-the-influence case.
Bach, 47, was convicted last week of her second DUI and was found in violation of probation. In addition to the jail term, she won't be allowed to drive for two years.
A lawyer for Bach couldn't be reached for comment.

David Hasselhoff's health scare over Thanksgiving weekend was prompted after the actor fell over several times and could not stand up, a newly released 911 recording from the Nov. 27 incident reveals.
"My dad just ... he's collapsed," says Hasselhoff's daughter Hayley, 17, who is heard crying. "He's standing up but he keeps falling back down ... But then he got back up and he's fine. It's kind of scaring me."
Hasselhoff, 57, was hospitalized at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center that weekend and was released.

It's the stuff country songs are made of. David Hasselhoff and his ex-wife Pamela Bach are having a troubled start to the holiday season – one landing in the hospital, the other in jail over the Thanksgiving weekend.
Hasselhoff was hospitalized for two days, PEOPLE has confirmed, though his attorney Mel Goldsman would not disclose the nature of his illness.
"David is home now and he's fine," says Goldsman. Hasselhoff's troubles began at home on Friday. Though authorities did not identify the name of the patient or the owner of the home, a fire department spokesman did confirm that paramedics responded to a call for medical aid at 11:51 a.m. at a home in Encino, and the patient was transported by ambulance to a local hospital. People learned that the address of the home matches the one owned by Hasselhoff.
Also, Hasselhoff's ex-wife Bach was arrested on a DUI charge by the California Highway Patrol on Saturday night while driving down the 101 Freeway near Laurel Canyon Blvd. According to a Los Angeles Police Department jail spokesman, she was taken into custody at the Van Nuys jail and later released on her own recognizance.
"There was no bail. She is fine. She was picked up and driven home by a friend," Bach's publicist tells PEOPLE. "She will deal with this."

David Hasselhoff is doing well after a 911 call and a trip to the hospital Sunday.
"This was all a misunderstanding," Hasselhoff's attorney Mel Goldsman tells PEOPLE. "David was being treated for an inner ear infection and had a bad reaction to his medication over the weekend. He lost his equilibrium and it left him dizzy. This was not an alcohol relapse. David was taken to Encino Hospital on Sunday and released within the hour. He's fine now and looking forward to doing his jury duty this week."
Los Angeles City Fire department spokesman Devin Gales confirmed they were called to Hasselhoff's Encino, Calif. home Sunday afternoon.
"We were summoned there for an unspecified request for medical aid," Gales said. "At least one person at that residence was transported to a local hospital."

The Hoff is signaling he still has a few songs left in him.

Hasselhoff, 57, performed a Rat Pack-style version of Nina Simone's "Feeling Good" on the NBC talent competition Wednesday, complete with back-up burlesque dancers and a Parisian street-scene set.

Who says success is measured only by Hollywood's terms?
In France, House star Hugh Laurie is right up there among such literary luminaries as Jean-Paul Sartre, Jules Verne and, oui, Victor Hugo.
The British star's novel Tout Est Sous Contrôle, a translation of his 1996 thriller The Gun Seller, is currently No. 2 on France's best sellers list, according to global news agency Agence France-Presse.
The novel, a James Bond-like spy spoof, has sold more than 100,000 copies since its release in February by a little-known French publishing house Sonatine.
And though the success comes 13 years after it was original published – and in another language – Laurie will happily take it.

Responding to an online report that David Hasselhoff was near death over the weekend due to alcohol poisoning, his lawyers released a statement saying the actor "was at no time in the condition described in those stories."
"Mr. Hasselhoff spoke to his attorneys on Sunday and was absolutely fine," attorneys Melvin Goldsman and Marci Levine said in a joint statement. "However, Mr. Hasselhoff is both disturbed and saddened by the fact that a certain individual is disseminating grossly inaccurate stories about him to the press for ulterior motives."
They didn't identify the alleged source of the stories. Hasselhoff, 56, is embroiled in an ongoing divorce with his ex-wife Pamela Bach. Her rep did not return a message.
A source close to Hasselhoff, who has spoken openly about his troubles with alcohol, did confirm the actor was hospitalized over the weekend after drinking.
