hollywood hearts & hoaxes

listen, i hate to break it to the dedicated people mag/us weekly readers, but high-profile hollywood romances are fabricated. what better publicity than a well-timed, believable falling - be it in or out. let’s consider a few recent examples:

::tom cruise professes his undying love for katie holmes to everyone who will listen and publish … the lovebirds are each promo-ing new movies – batman and war of the worlds - with no believable candidates for on-set romance so they paired up
::ben and jlo were the couple (gigli, jersey girl) until he picked another jen (garner, they co-starred in daredevil)
::brad’s love affair with angelina … mr. & mrs. smith debuts this week

i have hope this rule does not apply across the board … tim robbins + susan sarandon = true love


instead of waiting for the tabloids to tell us, let’s guess who the next hot couple will be ...

Let's see. Betsy, this is wonderful. I am particularly fond of the way you weave each post into an "action item" (allusion to my recent post unintentional). Ruth has been bugging me to spice up my site with hollywood romance stuff and I just couldn't do it. This gives me the perfect response to her request. And finally, comments also make me giddy and the anonymous ones feel like kind of a let down for me too.
