    In an interview with Jane magazine for its May issue, Kirsten Dunst said, “”I don’t ever want to date another actor again. This quote is probably going to come back in my face.”” Dunst, who is currently dating Razorlight vocalist Johnny Borrell, has dated such actors as Jake Gyllenhaal and Orlando Bloom.

    Mark Hamill and George Lucas will spoof the “”Star Wars”” movies on an episode of “”Robot Chicken”” that is scheduled to air on June 17 at 10 p.m. on Cartoon Network as part of Adult Swim. Seth Green, who directs “”Robot Chicken,”” said of working with Lucas, “”It was really exciting. He was very shy but very playful.””

    Julia Stiles and her representatives have spent two years trying to get the rights to Sylvia Plath’s “”The Bell Jar”” to film an adaptive movie, and the deal was finally sealed last Friday. The 1950s-era drama will feature Stiles as the lead role of Esther Greenwood, a woman who fights against the constraints of her society. Filming for “”The Bell Jar”” is tentatively scheduled to start in 2008.

    Spinal Tap will reunite to raise global warming awareness at the Live Earth concert scheduled July 7 in London. The farcical band will feature all of the original members, including Christopher Guest as Nigel Tufnel and Michael McKean as David St. Hubbins. Director Rob Reiner will also be in attendance. Now, I ask you, how much more black could that be? None more black.

    Joe Francis, the creator of “”Girls Gone Wild”” who is often seen asking women to flash the camera and touch themselves for the movie series, has been charged with a misdemeanor count of sexual battery. Francis allegedly touched an 18-year-old on her breast, buttocks and inner thigh after she repeatedly told him to stop. If you ask me, it’s about time this piece of trash got in trouble for a sexual-related crime, but he doesn’t exactly have a clean record, either. He is currently serving a 35-day jail sentence for a contempt of court charge and is being sued for tax evasion. If convicted, Francis could spend up to 10 years in prison and pay a fine of $500,000.
