After learning that her brother Gavin Smith's missing-persons case had been reclassified as a homicide, Tara Smith Addeo couldn't help but remember the last night she heard from him before he disappeared. The night before she learned Gavin was missing, he sent her a couple of text messages, she told E! News in an exclusive interview. "He was pretty much just talking about his sons," Tara recalled.

Neve Campbell Talks 'Scream 4' Shooting, Wes Craven And 'Working The Bob'

Neve Campbell Talks 'Scream 4' Shooting, Wes Craven And 'Working The Bob'
Ah... Neve Campbell. You really had us bumming when it came out that you weren't going to be involved with Kevin Williamson's return to the "Scream" franchise. The day brightened considerably when that news turned out to be untrue, but oh the emotional roller-coaster you've put us through.

Thankfully, that's all in the past. Now, Campbell has fully embraced her return to the character of Sidney in "Scream 4." She's even talking about it. As she did with BlackBook in an interview last week. And while she didn't get into what adventures Williamson has in store for her, she did offer up a few enlightening details about the coming sequel, which will kick off a new trilogy.

Wes Craven May Be Back for Scream 4

In an interview with BlockBook, Neve Campbell, revealed that Scream director Wes Craven will likely return for Scream 4.

I'm pretty sure at this stage that Wes is back on board to direct and Kevin [Willamson] is definitely writing it ... so it is going to be great.

Campbell says the movie will go into production "in mid-April" and is "so happy" to see that both Courteney Cox and David Arquette are returning. While Campbell has yet to see the script, she says the hardest thing about playing the character of Sidney Prescott again will be achieving the same haircut.

Physically speaking, it's all about working the bob! And the only way I can achieve that properly every day on set is through Tara Smith hair products. Seriously, if Tara didn't cut and style my hair in an amazing girly way to re-create the Sidney look, I wouldn't have a starting point [for the character]. I'm not kidding.

Demi Moore spends "six figures" on her exercise regime annually. The 46-year-old actress - who is married to Ashton Kutcher, 30 - is determined to keep her body in the best shape possible, so thinks nothing of splashing out on expensive fitness trainers and gym memberships.

Revealing Demi's keep-fit regime includes help from a personal trainer who coaches her through a combination of circuit training, weights and Pilates, a source revealed to America's Ok! magazine: "The cost per year is in the six figures."

Demi - who wowed onlookers with her toned, slim line physique on the set of 2003 movie "Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle" - denies ever resorting to plastic surgery to help her gain her enviable figure, and those close to her maintain she simply leads a healthy lifestyle.

Her hairstylist Tara Smith explained: "No one has better hair than Demi. It's naturally jet black, not one grey! I attribute it to her healthy lifestyle.
