The last time I met Anjelica Huston was six or seven years ago in a luxury oceanfront hotel in Venice, California. It was windy and cold, Huston was still a smoker – we talked outside in the wind while she lit up like a naughty schoolgirl. Today, it's a blisteringly hot day, she's an enviably youthful 60, an ex-smoker now, sitting in the lounge of the luxury hotel next door, before a gigantic cinemascope window affording guests a million-dollar view of the Pacific, which looks seriously tempting in today's heat.

Fifties star and former Miss Hungary slipped into coma after surgery in La hospital
Actor Zsa Zsa Gabor slipped into a coma in a Los Angeles hospital, according to Us reports. She was rushed to the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Centre on Tuesday night for emergency surgery after a feeding tube caused a major stomach infection.
Her husband, Prince Frederic von Anhalt, said the 94-year-old former Miss Hungary went into a coma around 2am Thursday morning. She has been in poor health for the past year after a fall at her Bel Air home in July 2010 that shattered her hip.
In January her right leg was amputated due to gangrene, and in March she was hospitalised for high blood pressure following the death of her friend Elizabeth Taylor. Two weeks ago she returned to hospital after contracting pneumonia. At the time her publicist, John Blanchett, said she was having difficulty breathing. »

It now appears to be more likely than not that Hailee Steinfeld, the 14-year-old actress who makes her big screen debut in the Coen brothers’ critically and commercially successful Western “True Grit,” will score an Oscar nomination — and perhaps even a win — in one category or another for her film-stealing performance. Consequently, some of you may be wondering if any other newcomer has ever earned that kind of recongition over the 82 year history of the Academy Awards. The answer is yes — in fact, it has happened precisely 47 times, 16 in lead and 31 in supporting.
Some of those women were famous before they received their nods (i.e. Jennifer Hudson and Barbra Streisand); most were not (i.e. Mary Badham and Gabby Sidibe).
