"Heath terrified me"

Michael Caine says that Heath Ledger scared the hell out of him while filming the new Batman flick The Dark Knight. Caine was frightened and forgot his lines when they came face to face for a scene. Michael plays a butler in the film.

Caine said, "You think Jack Nicholson in the role and you can't imagine anyone topping him. Heath's just as good in another direction. He's terrifying. "The first time I saw him, we were rehearsing. He comes up in the elevator to me in Batman's flat and raids the place. "And I hadn't seen him, I'd never met him and he comes out screaming and it's like 'wow'. I completely forgot my lines. Scary. It will frighten the life out of people."

Lourdes doesn't watch the news....

Or read magazines....But she really wants everyone to leave Britney alone! Madonna says her daughter feels sorry for Britney and it's time for the media to step off.

"Lourdes knows Britney, but she doesn't really watch TV or read gossip stuff. I think she sort of gets the drift of what's going on, and I think she feels very protective of Britney."

Tell us Madge, how does she get the drift of what's going on if she doesn't read or watch the news? Why does little Lourdes want the media to leave Britney alone if she doesn't even know what the media is doing? Quit talking through your kid. Next.

Kanye West sued over song

A songwriter in Maryland has filed a lawsuit against Kanye West for stealing the song Good Life.

Dayna Staggs aka D'Mystro, claims Kanye "didn't obtain a license" to sample his record Volume of Good Life for the track. Staggs says that West was "only at the age of six or seven years of age (sic)" when his song was written.

Staggs also objects to the "vulgar and offensive" images associated with the song saying it "harms the reputation" of his inoffensive tune. Staggs is demanding 85% of all world sales of the proceeds from Good Life. What? Only 85%??

Timberlake to host ESPY Awards

Justin Timberlake will host the 16th annual ESPY Awards this summer. The ceremony honors the best and funniest sporting moments over the year. JT says, "I can’t wait for the day of the show as I'm truly a sports junkie. Since the last ESPYS, there have been amazing moments in sports and I'm looking forward to recapping all of them with ESPN's die-hard fans."

"I'll do my best to deliver a great show, as I do not want to be roughed up backstage by these athletes who are bigger, faster and stronger than me." Last year Jimmy Kimmel and LeBron James hosted the show. The ESPYS will air live from L.A.'s new Nokia Theatre on July 20, 9 pm ET on ESPN

Find the joy with Jim Carrey

Jim Carrey is writing a book for people with depression that are tired of using medications. Carey has fought depression for years using Prozac and other medicines in an attempt to control the disorder.

Carrey has realized that "numbing the pain with medication is not the way to deal with the problem, and hopes his new book will help people focus on where their problems stem from." He is ready to share, "I dealt with depression for a while by medicating with Prozac and although it was good for dealing with the problem there and then, I wasn't getting to the bottom of my anger and frustration. I think we have a real problem these days in that everything is treated with a drug. I think there's a whole new way of healing depression that doesn't require drugs, and I'm writing a book about it. Who better than a comedian to talk about depression right?" Right! Happy Scientologists everywhere....

I pity the poor fool

Sleazy pap Adnan Ghalib is back with Britney, according to his secret waitress girlfriend Amanda Pagel. Amanda spilled some details to Look magazine about what went down with poor Brit.

Amanda says Adnan would have sex with her, then get up and run straight to Britney because he "pitied" her. How sweet is that?

In the interview Amanda said, "I'd just split up with my boyfriend, but I was lonely and wanted to make new friends." After meeting through mutual pals, she fell for Adnan. He promised Amanda his relationship with Britney was not sexual and kept reminding Amanda of what a hard time he was having. Didn't he pull that same jive with his wife?

"We started texting 40-50 times a day, just jokes to start off with, then flirty messages. I'd text "can't wait to see you" and he'd reply pretty much the same thing. We saw each other pretty much every day." She calls Adnan a "fantastic kisser" and "really smooth". Pshh. Adnan always visited Amanda at home, they never went out in public so as not to "betray" Britney.

"He kept saying: As soon as she's better and back on her own two feet doing her own thing, we can go public. And he told me he 'pitied' her and felt really sorry for her. She'd been through a lot and he used to say he was the only one that she trusted."

Adnan also told Amanda that they should "run away together, and start a new life in Italy, where they could start a family."

She said that Britney sent Adnan "hundreds" of texts every day and called him non- stop. The keen waitress finally caught on after media reports revealed Britney found Amanda's text messages on Adnan's iPhone.

Amanda claims, "I know he'll go mad when he reads this, but I want people to know I didn't steal Britney's boyfriend. I'd tell Britney to be careful who she trusts. I just hope she doesn't get hurt like I did." Too late...

A source told Star that Keri Russell is not shy about breast-feeding her 9-month-old son in public. "I'm all for breast-feeding babies, but Keri just whips it out. It's just not appropriate in a cute little cafe." Yeah! Next time choose a repulsive, dirty cafe. Jeez.

The Pacific Palisades local continues, "I wish she'd at least sit in a corner where she could be more discreet. It's kind of awkward. She smells kind of musty. I'm not sure if it's a hippie oil or a natural scent."

Tyra's girls = disrespectful slobs

Producers of America's Next Top Model are facing legal action from landlord Michael Marvisi. He says the models have wrecked their rented, big money high rise in NYC causing $500,000 in damages.

This season's contestants supposedly broke a $15,000 chandelier, left food and make-up stains all over the $6 million loft, and water damage has forced Marvisi to call in electricians to start working on the damage.

The production crew has been accused of ruining the Brazilian wood floors and punching "hundreds of holes in the ceiling to hang lighting equipment." What the hell? Where is TYRA? A source told Page Six, "These girls not only destroyed the floors, it appears they had food fights. There's ketchup and coffee splattered all over the landlord's $20,000 white drapes. There's lipstick on the walls. They moved in furniture and made holes all along the walls... The landlord is devastated. Three other shows approached him to use the apartment and he turned them all down for Top Model. And a tenant was supposed to move in a week ago, but when the place wasn't ready, they pulled out. Tyra Banks should be ashamed of herself."

There's more. ANTM producers are said to have "skipped out" on a $1,500 electric bill- and Marvisi had to pay it himself. They say the show has offered to settle the drama and pay Marvisi $125,000. How nice of them. He says he hasn't seen a dime, so he may be forced to file a lawsuit. The shame, the shame....
