Hollywood star Gwyneth Paltrow and Coldplay rocker Chris Martin celebrated their engagement at a star-studded party in New York last week - at Paltrow's mother's insistence.

A source tells Britain's Now magazine, "Blythe's overjoyed about the engagement. She adores Chris and thinks he's been a godsend for her daughter, so she shot into action to whip up the engagement party. It was a small, intimate affair for Gwynnie's closest friends and for Blythe to show off her engaged daughter. After all she's had two false starts to the altar and her mother will be thrilled to see her finally get there." The family friend adds that the pair will marry in a lavish ceremony in New York this December. They say, "Gwyneth's going to have a proper white wedding in church and her godfather Stephen Spielberg will give her away. Then there will be a reception and dinner, possibly at the Waldorf Hotel.

Paltrow Hates Her New Film

28 March 2003 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Gwyneth Paltrow is so embarrassed about her new movie View From The Top - she's dubbed the film "A view from my a**". Paltrow stars alongside Christina Applegate, Mike Myers and Rob Lowe in the much-delayed romantic comedy about a woman's dream to become a flight attendant. Critics have not been kind to the film - which was released in America last week. A New York Post review called it "a dire stewardess comedy that's the movie equivalent of airline food." And it seems the movie's lead has similar opinions about her latest work. A source tells gossip site The Scoop, "Paltrow thought it was sort of awful even while she was shooting it. She was calling it that until she was asked to stop. The people making the movie thought it wasn't a very supportive thing to be doing." »

21 February 2003 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Angry Jennifer Lopez stormed out of a surprise lunchtime meeting with fiance Ben Affleck because she felt sure she'd wandered into a clinch between her man and his new sexy co-star. Affleck was rehearsing a scene for new movie Surviving Christmas with actress Christina Applegate when he started chatting to her about her role in celebrity burlesque revue The Pussycat Dolls. But just as Applegate was giving Ben a taste of her sexy dance act, Lopez walked in on the couple, and promptly marched off. Set sources claim Affleck ran after his wife-to-be and managed to calm her down before the couple disappeared to spend some quality time together in the actor's trailer. »

J.Lo Improves on Her Tips

3 February 2003 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Jennifer Lopez's engagement to Ben Affleck appears to have affected her in a big way - she's now picked up her fiance's penchant for leaving oversized tips at restaurants. On January 20, while in Chicago visiting Affleck, who's currently filming Surviving Christmas with James Gandolfini and Christina Applegate, J.Lo feasted with friends on sesame chicken and ginger ale at the Windy City's Ben Pao restaurant. According to a source, the 32-year-old New York native slept restlessly later that night "knowing that her party had only tipped 20 percent." The next day, the source tells American magazine Us Weekly, one of her dinner companions made their way back to the restaurant and left her server an extra $100 and said, "Jennifer was talking about it all night. She felt terrible because she felt she had made a mistake." A restaurant representative says, "We were excited to have her with us and impressed with her generosity." »

Stars Show Off Their Platinum Hearts

31 January 2003 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Barbra Streisand, Penelope Cruz, Susan Sarandon and Gisele Bundchen have designed platinum pendants for charity. The one-of-a-kind celebrity creations are up for auction on Sothebys.Com, as part of the Platinum Guild International USA's second annual Women With Heart program. Bidding, which runs until February 10, began at $500 to $1,000. More than $120,000 was raised last year. The stars, who also include singer Brandy and actress Christina Applegate, first sketched their pendants then gave them to top platinum jewelry designers to create. Streisand's double heart pendant features cut white diamonds and a pink marquise diamond in the centre. She says her inspiration was: "Flowing lines of art nouveau jewelry and my love of pink diamonds and the remembrance of my mother." Streisand, whose mother Diana Streisand Kind had Alzheimer's disease and died last year, has chosen the Alzheimer's Association as her benefit charity. She says, "I know the pain of caring about someone who is still alive but is forever beyond any meaningful contact." »
