Doris Day is mad as heck about another ugly tabloid cover about her supposed declined. Even though the perky and approachable star doesn’t do interviews, she has to set the record straight. She needs the audience that cares for her to know that’s she’s doing fine and so are her four legged pals.

I’m betting Jamie Foxx ‘s dazzling performance in The Soloist might get him another shot at Oscar gold. Foxx plays Nathaniel Ayers, a Juilliard-trained classical cellist who suffers from acute schizophrenia and ends up living on the mean streets of L.A.
He finally gets a boost when L.A. Times columnist Steve Lopez, played by Robert Downey Jr., writes his story and gives him a shot at a new life. For Jamie, the role brought back some fears he’d like to forget.

In the film, Crowe is a crusading journalist who just can?t deal with how those gossipy blogs that are taking readers away from newspapers. Suddenly, he?s faced with a dilemma: How far will he go to get the real story about a famous politician who also happens to be his good friend?
