'We never restrict each other': Angelina Jolie speaks about her relationship with Brad Pitt and says fidelity is not essential

She allegedly got together with Brad Pitt when he was still married, and it appears as though fidelity is still not high on Angelina Jolie's list of priorities.

The actress has revealed that the couple do not restrict each other and says she doubts fidelity is essential.

Speaking to German magazine Das Neue, the 34 year-old said: 'I doubt that fidelity is absolutely essential for a relationship. It's worse to leave your partner and talk badly about him afterwards.
Neither Brad nor I have ever claimed that living together means to be chained together. We make sure that we never restrict each other.'

However, she added that the couple have a fiery relationship at times.

She said: 'The sparks fly at home if the nice Brad fails to see that he's wrong and reacts in a defiant way. Then I can get so angry that I tear his shirt.'
The revelation will shock fans of the couple, who have have a family of six children, three of whom are adopted.

Brad and Angelina first got together in 2005, allegedly while filming on the set of Mr And Mrs Smith, when Pitt was married to Jennifer Aniston.

And although seemingly condoning infidelity in the interview with Das Neue, Angelina has denied Brad Pitt cheated on Jennifer Aniston with her.
She said: 'To be intimate with a married man, when my own father cheated on my mother, is not something I could forgive. I could not look at myself in the morning, if I did that.'

A new book, Brangelina: The Untold Story of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, by author Ian Halperin, makes a number of claims about their relationship - including accusations that Angelina Jolie of maintains a jungle hideaway in Cambodia where she used to meet former lover Jenny Shimizu for trysts.

Halperin also alledges that Brad Pitt had several liasons with an obscure Sudanese model, whom he allegedly met in 2007.

The Canadian undercover reporter, claims to have gained access to several insiders close to the couple, and it's these sources who have provided the material used to write his book.

He said: 'When I was undercover as a paparazzi at the Chateau Miraval in 2006 when she was giving birth to the twins, I was able to befriend several people working for them.

'Everyone was at the hospital at Nice while Angie was in there, but I stayed behind.

'I knew that was my golden opportunity to befriend several people close to them. That's when I made my really key sources.'

Amy Winehouse charged with assault after alleged attack on theatre manager

Singer Amy Winehouse has today been charged with an assault on a theatre manager.

The singer was arrested after she attended Milton Keynes police station in Buckinghamshire voluntarily with her legal adviser at 1.15pm.

The 26-year-old, from Hertfordshire, was charged under the name Amy Civil with a public order offence and common assault following the incident which took place on Saturday, December 19.

The troubled star is said to have launched a physical attack on a member of staff during a performance of Cinderella at the Milton Keynes Theatre theatre.

At the performance the singer was said to have shocked children and parents by shouting 'He's f ****** behind you' and yelling out 'F*** Cinders, Prince Charming, marry me".

Refusing to sit down, she also branded the Ugly Sisters 'b******".

Her outburst was said to have exasperated stars of the show, including Fairy Godmother Anthea Turner, comedian Bobby Davro, playing Buttons, and actor Mickey Rooney, as Baron Hardup.

And later she allegedly launched herself at the front-of-house manager pulling his hair, punching him and kicking him between the legs.

Amy is set to appear at Milton Keynes Magistrates' Court on Wednesday 20 January 2010.

In July of this year, Amy was acquitted of punching a fan in the face at a charity concert.
A Thames Valley Police spokesman said: "A woman from Hertfordshire has today been charged in connection with an assault at Milton Keynes Theatre on Saturday night.

"Amy Civil attended Milton Keynes police station voluntarily with her legal advisor at 1.15pm this afternoon.

"She was formally arrested by officers from Thames Valley Police on suspicion of assault and public order."

Sarah Jessica Parker suffers a wardrobe malfunction as flimsy dress is caught by the wind

She had clearly spent hours planning the perfect outfit.

But when Sarah Jessica Parker stepped outside her front door, it was all undone - by a sudden gust of wind.

As she walked to a restaurant in New York, a strong breeze pressed her dress tightly to her body and left little to the imagination.
Realising her predicament, she grabbed her coat and covered up - but not before revealing a little more than she had intended.

Miss Parker 44, was taking a break from filming the sequel to Sex And The City when she was ambushed by the weather.

Yesterday she appeared on the Today show, where she talked about her recent experience filming Did You Hear About The Morgans? in New Mexico with Hugh Grant.

The actress says she was so appalled at Grant's nails that she gave him a weekly manicure on the set of their latest movie.
For God's sake I clipped his fingernails, isn't that giving?' she said.

'I thought that the least the globe deserved was a proper, presentable hand and if you look so good from here to here, your digits should look as good.

'He is one of the most dashing men in the world and I was shocked at the state of his fingernails. He has a ragged shovel that he uses - his teeth.

'I am exquisitely skilled with the nail clipper.'

Married to actor Matthew Broderick, 47, Miss Parker recently released pictures of her identical twins, Tabitha and Marion, which she had through surrogacy.

She and Broderick already have a seven-year-old son, James Wilkie, born naturally.

Speaking of parenthood for the second time, Miss Parker said: 'I'm probably faring as well as most working mothers.

'Some days are absolutely triumphant. Other days you’ve basically let everybody down and you lie in bed and live in regret and plan the next day.'

Pamela Anderson looks a little worse for wear as she holds on to a friend for support after a post-pantomime dinner

Pamela Anderson looked bleary-eyed and a little bedraggled as she left an upmarket London restaurant last night.

The former Baywatch beauty, 42, was snapped holding on to her unknown companion for support as she made her way out of the Automat brasserie in Mayfair.

And never normally one to shy away from the camera lens, Pamela kept her head down and covered her face as she climbed into her waiting car and sped off to her hotel.
Pamela, who is currently starring as the Genie of the Lamp in the New Wimbledon Theatre's production of Aladdin, looked a little unsteady on her feet, which were clad in red peep-toed stiletto heels.

Either she had been enjoying some post-show wine with her meal or it could just be that the daily two pantomine shows are taking their toll.

Whatever the reason, she seemed embarrassed to show her face as she got into her car at 1am and made her way back to her hotel to get a good night's sleep.
Earlier she stopped to sign autographs for eager fans who had patiently waited in the freezing cold for their pin-up to leave.
Enlarge Pamela Anderson's shoes
Pamela is starring in the pantomine until December 27, including performances on Christmas Eve and Boxing Day, before handing the genie mantle over to former Eastender Anita Dobson.
Although only on the stage for 15 minutes, Pamela has still managed to receive high praise for her performance, but maybe that's got something to do with the skimpy outfit she wears on stage.
In tribute to her role as CJ Parker in Baywatch, the role that shot her to stardom, the panto's producers designed her a Baywatch-red Lycra two-piece with red gloves and headpiece - and three capes decorated with 20,000 Swarovski crystals worth £5,000.

She makes her entrance to the panto on a glitter surfboard which descends from the ceiling which has so far given her a rapturous greeting from the audience every time.

She said: 'My costume is so fun. It is a little burlesque which I like, the entrance is fun, grand and dangerous - just how I like it.

However, one man doesn't seem too amoured towards Miss Anderson - her co-star Brian Blessed.
The veteran actor, who stars as the villain Abanazer, wasn't very complimentary towards her as he arrived at the theatre earlier this week.

Hamming it up for the waiting press by pretending to be drunk as he staggered into a wall, he said: 'Pamela ****ing Anderson? I've starred alongside Sophia Loren. What the **** is all that about Pamela Anderson?'

Pregnant Nicola McLean squeezes into velvet dress for Z-list party

She may have a baby on the way, but Nicola McLean isn't going to alter her style for anyone.

The six-months pregnant glamour model squeezed her curves into a skin tight black velvet dress for a party last night.

The 28-year-old joined a host of Z-listers at the bash at the Sanctum Soho Hotel in London - including singer and actress Faith Brown, models Emma B and Chantelle Houghton, and singer Peter Andre.

But it was Nicola who stole the limelight, with her plunging dress.

The former I'm A Celebrity contestant already has a son, Rocky, 2, with her footballer husband Tom Williams.
The Peterborough United player is currently on loan to QPR, and made his debut for the team last night in West Bromwich, while his wife was partying.
The pair married earlier this year on Living TV show Four Weddings, a show which pitched four rival brides against each other for the chance to win a dream honeymoon.

Nicola triumphed against Sandra Dickinson, Phil Turner and East 17's Terry Coldwell in the title of best wedding.

And she also stars in her own reality show with her family, Nicola McLean: Studs & Stilettos, which is broadcast on ITV2.
The pneumatic blonde is also famous for her rivalry with fellow glamour model Katie Price.

Nicola has befriended Jordan's ex husband Peter Andre - they both share the same management - with whom she attended last night's party.

The friendship has angered Katie Price. Nicola has described Katie as 'vile' and a 'stupid' while Katie has claimed that she is trying to imitate her.

Katie Price and Alex Reid enjoy not so secret date... in the audience of Britain's biggest show

Katie Price chose a live TV interview on I'm A Celebrity to dump her cagefighter boyfriend. So their reunion date was never likely to be a private affair.

True to form the glamour model and her man joined the audience of the biggest show in Britain - the X Factor.

And just in case anyone missed them they went backstage to mingle with the crowd of journalists and celebrities at the bar.
Katie had earlier made a point of stressing that she and Alex were just friends.

She wrote on her Twitter page: 'On way to ex factor with my FRIENDS melodie alex an max can't wait ...wonder who will win excited xx'

As they arrived for their date at Fountain Studios in London the pair made a show of being alone, despite sharing a car.

Reid climbed out first and hid in McDonalds, while Katie made her red carpet entrance. Once inside they visited Simon Cowell in his dressing room.
The X Factor boss is an old friend of Katie's, and she was one of the guests at his all-star 50th birthday party earlier this year.

At a backstage bar, Katie told the Daily Mirror: 'We’re just seeing how it goes. I don’t care what anyone else thinks – it’s up to me who I go out with.'

The pair were seen dancing to JLS and Alexandra Burke, and kissing and holding hands.

They shared a bottle of champagne, with Alex resting his hands on Katie's shoulders and keeping her by his side.

It was a different story when they split, with Katie accusing Reid of selling stories about their relationship.

The 31-year-old, who has made a career out of publicising her private life, said she had told Reid not to talk to the press.

He had flown out to Australia to propose to the mother-of-three, and was said to be devastated when she refused to even acknowledge him.

But it seems he has been forgiven - at least for now.

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt look so in love at charity ball

A newly released unauthorised biography claims there are 'irreparable tensions' in Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's relationship, but there was certainly no sign of strain as they attended a charity ball in Los Angeles last night.

The tactile couple didn't leave each other's side as they mingled among the star-studded crowd at a UNICEF ball at the Beverly Wilshire.

The couple, who have six children, revelled in their night off parent duty and stole romantic moments at every opportunity.

Angelina, 34, a UNICEF ambassador, was seen gazing adoringly at her 46-year-old partner of five years and at one point ran her fingers through his hair.

While there were a host of stars at the event, including George Clooney, Matt Damon, Bruce Willis and Cindy Crawford, the couple were most interested in chatting with time with surprise guest Muhammad Ali.
They both appeared star-struck as they shook hands with the former boxer, who is considered one of the greatest heavyweight championship boxers of all time.

Angelina even launched in for a hug with the 67-year-old, who suffers from Parkinson's Syndrome.

It was clear that the Hollywood couple remain unshaken by the allegations made in Ian Halperin's new book, Brangelina: The Untold Story of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.

'They've broken up so many times it would make your head spin,' the author claims, declaring the couple will break up by 'Christmas 2010.'

But it all looked rosy last night as they put their support behind the charity.

The evening was designed to honour individuals who made key contributions to UNICEF's mission to save and improve children lives worldwide.

Producer and long-time philanthropist Jerry Weintraub was honored as Man of the Year with UNICEF's Danny Kaye Humanitarian Award.

The evening raised more money for the organisation than any UNICEF Ball to date.

Weintraub, Pitt, Clooney, Damon and Don Cheadle allo donated $250,000 to help the organisation's mission to reduce the number of preventable deaths of children from 24,000 to zero.

Weintraub directed the actor's in Ocean's Eleven and it's follow-up franchise.

Other guests included Joan Collins, Larry David, Selena Gomez, Benji Madden and Joel Madden and Alyssa Milano.

Hollywood Actress Katie Price returns to jungle for a second stint on I'm A Celebrity to 'give her side of the story'

Model Katie Price is gearing up to appear in I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! for a second time - becoming the first ever star to return to the jungle.

The glamour girl has decided to return to the Australian bush because she wants the public to see the real her - and after agreeing a deal for £350,000.

Ms Price believes that going back into the jungle will help her regain the initiative in the ongoing PR battle with ex-husband Peter Andre.

Explaining her decision, Ms Price told a friend: 'It will help me communicate with the public directly and not through third parties.'

The figure Price is to receive represents a record amount for any contestant. ITV are to formally announce the full line-up for this year's series tomorrow.

A TV source revealed: 'She is ratings dynamite. She has always been hugely popular on ITV and she's seriously outspoken. And with the break-up of her marriage being so high profile, her appearance - and her comments - are sure to be explosive.'
It is believed that Ms Price, who has commitments in the U.S. when the show starts on Sunday, will be flown into the jungle after the other contestants, arriving unannounced for maximum impact.

MailOnline first told last week how ITV bosses were hoping to entice Jordan into the jungle.

At the time, she turned down the offer, then demanded £450,000 but now appears to have changed her mind.
She will be the first contestant to re-enter the jungle, where she will be expected to camp without home comforts and take part in a series of challenges which usually involve swimming through infested rivers and eating horrible bugs.

Her last appearance on the show in 2004 proved compelling viewing as the nation watched her and Andre's growing friendship.

She paraded around the jungle in a white bikini, a fairly transparent tactic usually adopted by the curviest contestants.

She was voted out and arch-rival Kerry Katona went on to win that year.

After the show finished, she and Andre embarked on a real-life romance and married in 2005. Their first child, Junior, was born the same year. Their second child, Princess, was born in 2007.

Having caught the bug for reality television, the pair began to live their lives on screen and their fly-on-the-wall series, which followed their lives both in the UK and the U.S., became one of ITV2's most watched programmes

This year, though, the couple announced they were splitting after almost four years of marriage, leading to a bitter public break-up.

It is not known whether she had to secure Andre's agreement to go back on the show or whether she plans to leave her three children with her cagefighter boyfriend Alex Reid.

Price will be up against another ex-Page 3 model on the show, former 1980s Page 3 star Sam Fox, who is rumoured to be netting around £60,000 for the show.

Ex-footballer Colin Hendry, snooker player Jimmy ‘Whirlwind’ White, Mis-Teeq pop star Sabrina Washington and TV presenters Colin McAllister and Justin Ryan are also taking part.

Former Strictly Come Dancing dancer Camilla Dallerup, ex-soccer hardman Vinnie Jones, former Coronation Street actor Bruce Jones, ex-WAG Lizzie Cundy and former EastEnder Robert Kazinsky - who played Stacey's brother Sean in the soap - are also tipped to appear.

Interior design TV presenters Colin McAllister and Justin Ryan are renowned for their frequent bickering, fussiness and tantrums on screen and are expected to liven up the show.

The pair have also been a couple for 22 years and married in a civil partnership last year in London.

They are reportedly being paid £65,000 each to appear in the three-week show.

Last night, former EastEnder Lucy Benjamin, whose greatest claim to fame is shooting Phil Mitchell on EastEnders, and Kim Woodburn, from How Clean Is Your House?, were also both seen at the airport today and are also believed to be flying out to Australia for the series.

Thousands of X Factor fans complain about the 'Fix Factor' as Simon Cowell saves Jedward

He once described them as 'vile creatures' and declared he would leave the country if they won The X Factor.

But as Simon Cowell must know better than most, nothing generates ratings like a good controversy. So it is perhaps unsurprising that his U-turn to vote for the Irish twins known as 'Jedward' has been condemned by viewers as a fix.

ITV chiefs last night said they had received an astonishing 3,000 complaints amid suspicions that Cowell knew the public had voted against Lucie Jones when he forced the 'deadlock'.

The broadcasting watchdog Ofcom has also received 50 complaints and could start an investigation.

The controversy came after Cowell had the deciding vote between the talented teenager Lucie and twins John and Edward Grimes on Sunday's show.

Instead of putting Lucie through, he went for the twins - leaving the four judges' votes tied and meaning their fate was in the hands of a record 16.6million viewers.

Despite the twins' questionable talents, the public opted for them - and Lucie was out.

Some claimed he wanted the twins to stay because - despite his criticisms of their act - they have proved strangely endearing to many viewers.

His decision added fuel to speculation that he secretly loves the twins, seeing their potential as a money-making novelty chart act.

There has also been discussion that he is protecting his own acts, all three of which remain in the competition.
Cowell justified his choice by saying he was thinking about which act he would rather see next week.

'I'd probably rather see the boys,' he admitted. This was despite telling them they 'couldn't sing' on Saturday's show, and describing them as 'horrors'.
Cowell last night denied he was aware beforehand that the public vote was in favour of the 18-year-old twins.

'I know there will be lots of people who will criticise the decision to let it to go to deadlock, but I honestly could not have predicted the way public voting had gone - I never get told the voting figures,' he said.
'The twins are good entertainment and there would be criticism either way. I really just couldn't make up my mind, that's why I left it to the public.'

A source close to Cowell said yesterday: 'At the end of the day, all we are doing is entertaining people. Simon actually thought the boys would go.

'Nobody voted for Lucie - and let's not forget that Simon had actually told her she had given her best performance of the series the night before.'
Ofcom will now decide whether to begin an investigation. A spokesman said: 'There are a number of complaints which we are looking into.'

It's the second time in two weeks Ofcom have been contacted over Cowell's decisions.

Last week he was blasted by viewers for forcing the vote to a deadlock after he picked Welsh teen Lloyd Daniels, 16, over 17-year-old Rachel Adedeji.

Cowell said he felt sorry for Lloyd who was suffering from a sore throat - even though the judges had been unanimous in their praise for Londoner Rachel.

Cowell's move prompted protest from thousands of X Factor viewers on websites, including the Daily Mail's.

Lucie's polished performance of One Moment In Time had won her the backing of her mentor Dannii Minogue and fellow judge Cheryl Cole.

Even Jedward's mentor Louis Walsh had told her: 'There's no way you should have been in the bottom two.'

Yesterday Lucie, 18, was philosophical about her exit from the competition.

'At the end of the day, it's not just a singing contest,' she said.

'It's called The X Factor so it is not just about having the best voice or being the best singer.'

She added: 'I just don't feel that me and Simon ever really clicked. Right from the start I don't think we ever really got on in the same way that he did with some of the other acts.'

And she refused to criticise Jedward. 'There was no way John and Edward had the least amount of votes... everyone loves them and I tried to deal with it before Dermot turned to speak to me... but I kinda knew,' she said.

Meanwhile, the Grime twins' mentor, Louis Walsh, said: 'I don't think that Simon got it wrong at all, this is a great television show and great entertainment.'

Lucie's elimination leaves her mentor Dannii with just one act, after losing Rachel Adedeji last week.

Finalists' betting odds

Pamela Anderson's tears over the platinum swimming pool that left her living in a trailer park .

Pamela Anderson has spoken for the first time about her huge debts after building her dream home left her millions of dollars in the red.

The 42-year-old actress has been forced to move into a trailer park during construction of her beach home in Malibu, California. But she now fears she may have to sell it after going over budget.

She said: 'I am $3million over budget and I should have moved in over a year ago. I’m tiling the whole pool in platinum — that’s expensive!
The Playboy and Baywatch star sobs whenever she visits the house, which she bought for £850,000.

She said: 'I’m going to sell it. I hate it. People commit suicide over constructions.

'Relationships break down over constructions and I can see why. It rips your heart out'

Anderson was speaking to former EastEnders star Joe Swash for a documentary called Pamela Anderson: At Home With Joe for Living TV.
She showed Swash, 27, and his film crew around the house and told him the financial situation was so bad that she lives in a trailer with her electrician boyfriend Jamie Padgett, 42, and her two sons Brandon, 13, and Dylan, 11.

She reportedly has just $4,000 (£2,400) in the bank and needs to spend at least $800,000 (£480,000) more to make the house habitable.

Last week it was revealed that she has signed up for a two-week stint as the Genie in Aladdin at the New Wimbledon Theatre.

When her guest appearance was announced, box office takings increased by 800 per cent, but she will reportedly earn only £375 a day.
