Jennifer Aniston has revealed that she changed the name of her new perfume because she discovered that a fragrance with a similar title was already on sale.

The former Friends actress spent months deliberating over the name of her debut scent and finally settled on calling it ‘Lolavie’, which means ”laughing at life”.

But as the launch date approached, marketing bosses realised the name was too similar to a fragrance by fashion designer Marc Jacobs, called ‘Lola’.

Speaking at the launch of the scent in London Aniston admitted that it was too late to rebrand the perfume with a different name, so she decided to call it simply ”Jennifer Aniston”.

“It turned out as we were getting close to the launch, there was something out there that was very similar and it was just going to get very confusing in the marketplace. And at such a late hour, I didn”t want to postpone the launch so the only thing we could really clear was my name,” the Daily Star quoted her as saying.


Angelina Jolie had a traumatic childhood because her mother abandoned her when she was a baby, it has emerged.

The actress’ teenage years and young adulthood were marred by erratic behaviour- drug-use, self-cutting and a volatile love life.

And a biography by Andrew Morton, ‘Angelina: An Unauthorized Biography’ –has revealed that it all began with a traumatic event in the star”s infancy, reports Usmagazine.com.

According to former babysitter Krisann Morel, the actress’ late mother Marcheline Bertrand virtually abandoned Jolie after a painful 1976 split from husband Jon Voight.

Morel also claimed that, for two years, Bertrand sequestered Jolie in a separate apartment in her building, where a revolving staff cared for the young girl.

However, Jolie has publicly declared her devotion to her mother, who passed away in January 2007 of cancer.

But Morton has written that Jolie was permanently scarred by this early abandonment, which led her to self-destructive acts and a “come here, now go away” personality.

A spokesman for the Los Angeles County Sheriff”s Department has denied reports which claimed that Lindsay Lohan is being given special treatment in the jail.

Former inmate Debra Sickels, who was released not long after the star”s incarceration, has revealed that Lohan”s extra perks, including access to a private phone and a private guard at her disposal, had riled the other prisoners.

“She”s getting special treatment. Some inmates were getting p**sy over it… The girls said they cleaned a special room for Lindsay. It had a regular hospital bed, a TV and a dresser for her new clothes and socks,” she told the New York Daily News.

But Los Angeles sheriff”s department spokesman Steve Whitmore is adamant that Lohan is not being treated any differently.

“She”s being treated like any other inmate in her classification. There”s no special treatment at all,” the Daily Star quoted Whitmore as saying.

Mel Gibson had sent her ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva apologetic text messages after explosive January fight, it has emerged.

The “Mad Max” star was subdued in a series of apologetic text messages on the day after he allegedly punched her in the mouth, reports RadarOnline.com.

“Oksana, I wasn”t safe for you last night,” the New York Daily News quoted one of the January 7 texts.

“I spent two hours with a therapist today and have regained some perspective.”

“What I”m telling you know if I am safe & would like to come by and make amends to you, Sascha and Lucia. I won”t stay just let you say your peace and I”ll say mine. Let me know if it”s alright!” he added.

Gibson sent another five brief text messages in the 30 minutes before the mother of his daughter Lucia finally replied.

“I have two broken teeth and a concussion,” Grigorieva responded.

“I can not c u today, I”m hurting. U can apologize to Sacha some other time.”

Gibson then asked about her teeth and wrote: “Did you get them fixed yet?”

‘Killers’ director has admitted that he was surprised to see Ashton Kutcher bulked up for the role in only a couple of weeks.

Kutcher is known for his long and lean physique but when he first appeared on the French set of ‘Killers’, film’s director, Australian Robert Luketic was shocked at just how much the actor had bulked up for the role in only a matter of weeks.

It was not until Luketic and Kutcher, who shared a villa in the south of France, had some downtime the workout secret was revealed – a DVD Kutcher bought after watching a late-night infomercial on US television.

“I thought he had used a personal trainer and I wanted to know who it was and how he got into that shape so quickly,” the Sydney morning Herald quoted Luketic as saying.

“Then one day I was in his living room and he showed me the DVD. I thought ”Oh my god. This can”t be for real.” But it was.”

Kutcher and Luketic have not named the particular workout but Luketic says it was important the former fashion model add muscle to play the role of Spencer Aimes, an undercover contract killer.

“When I first met Ashton, he had this very slim, model-type body. I thought it would look great if he bulked up and then he just did it but it shocked me when I found out how,” he added.

Samantha Ronson has paid a visit to her ex-girlfriend Lindsay Lohan in jail.

A day after the 24-year-old star was greeted by her mother Dina and teen sister Ali, Ronson popped by the Century Regional Detention Facility in Lynwood, California.

The actress will be confined for at least the next two weeks for violating probation from her DUI case.

“She”s tough, but being in a cell is hard on her. She cries daily and her emotions are up and down,” News.com.au quoted her as saying.

“Everyday is a struggle to stay positive, but we all believe that she will be stronger when she finishes her sentence,” she added.

Despite her jail sentence, Lindsay Lohan’s professional worth is going up – she’s making more money than she did in the last year.

The ‘Mean Girls’ star managed to finalise TV and news deals the night before she went off to jail, reportedly locking down tell-all interviews that could net her seven figures, reports Fox News.

“On Monday night, the night before she had to report to jail to serve her sentence, she tied up all loose ends and signed contracts for exclusive television and print stories,” News.com.au quoted an industry source as saying.

“She”ll be doing major television sit downs after she finishes all of her sentence.

“Lindsay is going to tell everything about her experience in jail, she will open up about her entire life,” the source added.

The sources also revealed that Lindsay”s mom, Dina will also be a part of the interviews, but her father Michael will have no part in them.

“Dina was a part of the team that brokered all the deals. They made phone calls, and set up the interviews within three days,” one source said.

“They wanted to get it all done before she was remanded to Lynwood and they did. It is a small solace to Lindsay while in jail that at least she can continue to make money in some way,” the source added.
