— For months Halle Berry has raved about the joy of pregnancy, but now in her third trimester the actress is facing facts — that bun can’t stay in the oven forever. In an interview with Reveal magazine (excerpted on PageSix.com), Halle shares her biggest concern.
“I’m worried about giving birth,” the 41-year-old confessed. “I’ve been pretty cool about my pregnancy up until lately, but suddenly I’m realizing that there’s a baby that’s got to come out and someone is going to have to be there to push it out.”
Surely those hormones that left her bragging about endless energy, glowing skin and the merits of morning sickness help ease the anxiety? “Emotionally, I’m a bit of a mess. Besides all the hormones bubbling and boiling inside me, the anticipation is starting to get to me. I’m more nervous now than I was during the Oscars.”
Did Sienna Miller play a part in Penn split?
Recent rumors already point to the possibility that other women played a role in the breakup of Sean Penn and Robin Wright’s 20-year marriage. According to one NY Daily News insider, actress Sienna Miller may have been one of them.
The spywitness recounted details of a past party the stars attended. “Sienna was sitting on Sean’s lap,” the source said. “She was dressed very sexily. She had her arm around his neck.” Additionally the source alleges the pair stayed up together until the wee hours.
A Penn pal denied any wrongdoing. “Sienna is like that with everyone,” Sean’s friend informed NYDN. “She’s very physical. She drapes herself over people she likes. She doesn’t mean a lot by it.”
Calling the entire matter “outrageously untrue,” Sienna’s rep told the paper, “Sienna is a very good friend of Robin. She adores and respects Robin.”
Dish on the fly
Little Suri could get a baby brother or sister, if mom Katie Holmes can fit it into her busy schedule. Unfortunately, production delays for Katie’s next film threw a wrench in the works. “(Katie) had it all figured out,” a friend of the actress told OK! “She’d shoot ‘The Other Side’ and then get pregnant. She’d have the baby by year-end, go back to work next spring and have another film out by the end of 2009.” The postponed pregnancy is a disappointment for Katie and Tom Cruise. “Both she and Tom — especially Tom — were hoping to have their next baby before Katie turns 30 in December.” … Are they or aren’t they? Ashley Olsen and ex-boyfriend Jared Leto cozied up to each other at the Art of Elysium 10th Anniversary Gala. “They looked like a couple and they were making out,” a source revealed to Us Weekly. But an Ashley insider refuted any romance talk, telling the mag, “They aren’t back together. They’re friends.” … Come Monday, Kiefer Sutherland’s a free man, but until then he’s still has work detail at the Glendale City Jail. Serving time for his September 2007 DUI bust, Kiefer’s chores now include taking care of fellow DUI-guy Gary Collins’ dirty laundry, reports Page Six. Gary won’t return the favor, as he remains work-free during his “Pay to Stay” jail time.
