Eva Longoria 'Shocked' at Her Hot Rating

Originally posted 05/11/2005 08:00AM

RANKED: Though it's often claimed that Teri Hatcher gets all the attention, Eva Longoria is the only star of Desperate Housewives to make Maxim magazine's new Hot 100 list – in fact, Longoria is No. 1. "It's kind of exciting and shocking all at the same time, because I was No. 91 last year," Longoria, 30, tells USA Today. "Considering all the women in the world, No. 91 isn't all that bad. But I didn't go to the party (last year), because I don't think anyone wants the 90s at the party." Modest about her status this year as well, Longoria tells that paper that she'd rank Angelina Jolie (whom the men's magazine ranked as No. 7) at the top of the list. "Angelina is the definition of sexy," Longoria says. "Everything about her is sexy – her empowerment, confidence, strength, beauty, character, her morals and what she stands for."

Report: Travoltas Under Heavy Security

Originally posted 10/20/2004 08:00AM

PROTECTED: John Travolta, 50, and wife Kelly Preston, 42, are under heavy security after receiving undisclosed threats, USA Today reports. "I think the best thing to say is 'no comment,'" the actor's publicist, Paul Bloch, tells the paper. Guards reportedly have been in place around the couple and their children for at least a month. At Sunday night's opening of Travolta's new movie A Love Song for Bobby Long, Travolta and Preston arrived after two bomb-sniffing dogs checked guests – who were also required to remove all pens from their pockets. At the post-premiere party, men's wallets were searched, the paper says.

OutKast's Smoking Gun Poster Shot Down | Andre 3000

OutKast's Smoking Gun Poster Shot Down

Originally posted 07/08/2004 09:00AM

CRITICIZED: A poster showing OutKast's Andre 3000 holding a smoking gun has been branded "irresponsible" by Britain's Advertising Standards Authority, reports Reuters. The watchdog group upheld a complaint that the ad could be seen to glorify gun use but rejected another claim that it promoted racial stereotypes. The advertiser, record label BMG, had said it believed the poster for the hip-hop duo was no more likely to provoke violence than ads for James Bond movies. "We regret the ruling because OutKast are the last group that we believe you could level those charges against," said BMG press director Paul Bursche.
