Sit Down and Let's Chat

After months of rumors regarding a pregnancy, reps for the Spanish actress confirm, “Penelope is four and a half months pregnant.” Photos that recently surfaced of Cruz, 36, sporting a baby bump on the set of her upcoming movie, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, only added to the speculation.

Ryan Reynolds isn't afraid to suffer for his art. In his new movie Buried, he plays a man buried alive in a coffin who's struggling to escape — a role which involved him constantly getting cut by the coffin's unfinished wood and getting a bald patch from where his head rubbed against the coffin floor! "I'll never, ever in my life complain on a set again after being on that set," Ryan tells the October issue of GQ. "Sixteen, seventeen days of doing that — it was such a state of emotional distress." It's not the only role that gives him flashbacks. "[Van Wilder] made me the party guy," he recalls of the 2002 comedy with Tara Reid in which he played a seventh year senior afraid to graduate college. "I would walk into a bar and people would start lining up the shots. You could sum up my career at that point as a free shot at a bar. I know it affected me more than I'm revealing because I went years without even saying the words 'Van Wilder.' Even now, when I say it, it's a bit of a stretch for me."
Some Hills fans may have been shocked to see photos of embattled couple Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt reunited in California over the weekend, but their former MTV co-star Kristin Cavallari would hardly be surprised to see the camera-loving reality stars back together. "Honestly, I think it's fake. I don't think they are really getting divorced," Kristin told In Touch at the global launch of the Montblanc John Lennon Edition pen in New York. And Kristin may be right. After pictures emerged of the pair participating in the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer in Carpinteria, Calif., on September 12, Heidi, who filed for divorce from Spencer in July, said she and her estranged hubby are "just taking life second by second." Much to the dismay of their many enemies, it looks like Speidi may just survive!
Gorgeous Modern Family star Sofia Vergara got a real surprise on Emmy night - a proposal from her boyfriend, Nick Loeb! According to a friend, Nick, who survived when his car careened off a cliff in California on August 23, is still recuperating, but he found the strength to propose as Sofia was getting dressed for the Primetime Emmy Awards on August 29. "They're keeping the details a secret for now, but they're engaged," the friend of the couple reveals. "That's why Sofia was glowing at the Emmys even when she didn't win a supporting actress award. She is completely in love with Nick." The actress is also riding high professionally, and with Modern Family a huge hit, the star wants a raise. According to a friend, Colombian-born Sofia, 38, who was relatively unknown in America when she was cast in the role of Gloria, "wants at least $100,000 an episode," the friend explains. "She's in negotiations with the producers."

We somehow doubt Teresa Giudice will be making a cameo!
When it comes to the emotional pain of being cheated on, Teresa Giudice knows what she's talking about. "I had an ex boyfriend who cheated," she explains. It was a tumultuous, on-again/off again romance. During one of the periods when they were estranged, the boyfriend called during Thanksgiving, telling Teresa that he was with his mother and missed her terribly. She was swayed - until she learned that he hadn't been telling the truth. "He was in the Bahamas with another girl," she reveals. "When I found out, I was so disgusted." Another time, she confronted one of her boyfriend's other women in a nightclub - and it got physical. "That was the last time I got vicious," says Teresa, who, in high school, got suspended for giving a girl a black eye.
