KJ's Hollywood Dirt for 10/22/2014

Daniel Radcliffe Thinks It's Crap That One Direction Beat Him on a Richest Stars List

For the second year in a row, ONE DIRECTION beat "Harry Potter" star DANIEL RADCLIFFE to the number one spot on the list of Britain's richest stars under 30. The guys in One D are worth $125 million, while Daniel "only" has a little over $102 million.

But Daniel is JOKINGLY calling FOUL. He says, quote, "There's five of them so that doesn't count. Not that I care but I am definitely first!"

Here's the Top 10, which includes his "Harry Potter" co-stars at #6 and #8:

1. One Direction . . . $125 million

2. Daniel Radcliffe . . . $102 million

3. Robert Pattinson . . . $83 million

4. Keira Knightley . . . $64 million

5. Adele . . . $58 million

6. Emma Watson . . . $51 million

7. Calvin Harris . . . $46 million

8. Rupert Grint . . . $44 million

9. Leona Lewis . . . $25 million

10. Alex Turner from the Arctic Monkeys . . . $21 million

Jennifer Garner Says People Ask Her How She Balances Work and Family . . . But They Ask Ben Affleck About His Co-Stars' Boobs

At "Elle" magazine's Women in Hollywood event on Monday night, JENNIFER GARNER made a great point about how the media treats her differently from her husband BEN AFFLECK.

She said one day she and Ben were both doing press events for their respective movies, and when they got home and compared notes, they realized they were treated very differently.

She said, quote, "Every single person who interviewed me . . . asked me, 'How do you balance work and family?' and [Ben] said the only thing that people asked him repeatedly was about the [boobs] on the 'Blurred Lines' girl."

(That would be Emily Ratajkowski from Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines" video. She was in "Gone Girl" with Ben.)

Jennifer added, quote, "As for work-life balance, he said no one asked him about it that day. As a matter of fact, no one had ever asked him about it. And we do share the same family. Isn't it time to kinda change that conversation?"

Nicki Minaj's Boyfriend Got His Nicki Minaj Tattoos Covered

NICKI MINAJ might not have a boyfriend anymore. Because her longtime boyfriend Safaree Samuels got his Nicki tattoos COVERED.

Safaree used to have Nicki's face on his right breast, and her name on his left. Now he has what looks like a motorcycle helmet on the right, and a rose and a heart-shaped lock on the left.

Safaree still has a picture of Nicki on his right forearm, but it looks like it might be faded, as if he's in the process of getting it removed.

Nicki had Tweeted back in May that she was "Single and ready to mingle", but it was never confirmed that they actually broke up. She and Safaree were spotted together as recently as last month.

A so-called "source" says they ARE still a couple. He just got the ink covered up because Nicki wants to keep her dating life private, and she didn't like the attention the tattoos were getting.

Toys 'R' Us is Caving and Taking the "Breaking Bad" Action Figures Off the Shelves

Toys 'R' Us is caving in to that ONE WOMAN who complained, and taking the "Breaking Bad" action figures off the shelves.

A rep for the company says, quote, "Let's just say, the action figures have taken an 'indefinite sabbatical.'"

The woman's online petition against the figures only had a little over 9,000 signatures as of last night.

When I first saw the story, I thought it was a little odd but as it turns out Toys 'R' Us has an entire selection of collectable toys for adult collectors. So just to be clear, they are NOT marketing them TO KIDS.

Do It or Get Off the Pot!

In a new interview with GQ magazine, film star Matthew McConaughey shared the romantic story of how he decided to marry his now-wife, Camila Alves.

According to him, it took her grabbing the bull by the horns, and saying, "C’mon, Big Boy, Mr. Easygoing-We’ll- Get-to-It-When-We-Get-to-It. Either s**t or get off the pot."

While Matthew didn't mention it in the interview, his wife will undoubtedly be releasing her new line of matrimonial greeting cards any time now - as soon as she gets off the pot.

Being Married to Dennis Rodman "The Worst"?

 In a recent appearance on Oprah Winfrey's Where Are They Now?, actress Carmen Electra opened up about her short marriage with the NBA's Dennis Rodman.

Yes, the same guy who thinks he can solve the world's problems by playing basketball in North Korea was once married to Carmen.

And as described by Carmen, it was "the worst."

In her and his defense, she also said when it was good, it was "amazing."

She says she remembers thinking, immediately after the wedding, "Oh God, what did we do? What did we just do?"

Not a good start, no matter how you look at it...

The "Horror" of Modern Celebrity Culture

It's been 21 years since since legendary singer and songwriter Billy Joel has had a hit.

And according to an interview in The New Yorker, that's been on purpose.

He says he really dislikes the "horror of celebrity," and he's really uncomfortable with the demands it places on folks like him. 

In fact, he said that all the scrutiny and second-guessing made him feel like "there was a proctoscope up my butt."

Um, ouch!

Seems like that would make it very difficult to sit down at a piano too.

Excuse Me, Sister, Like a What?

Sister Cristina, the Italian nun who won her nation's version of American Idol, has released a new single.

It's a cover - well, sort of - of Madonna's 1984 hit song, "Like a Virgin."

Yes, folks, a nun, singing "Like a Virgin."

Sister Cristina said in an interview with an Italian newspaper that her idea to cover the song is not meant to be "provocative or scandalous."

She says if you simply read the song's lyrics - and pay no attention to Madonna's interpretation - it's really a song about "love's ability to renew a person and rescue them from the past."

I guess covering "Like a Prayer" would have been expected, huh?

Believe It? Or Not?

In Back to the Future II, Marty McFly made a quick escape on a Hoverboard - a floating skateboard that existed in the future.

Remember the scene?


Well now, thanks to a company called ..., you can have a hoverboard all your own - for the miniscule setback price of $10,000.

It's part of a Kickstarter project, trying to raise $250,000. If you'd like a working prototype, it's yours for $10K.

A couple of things you need to know. The device can float only three centimeters off the ground, it cannot be steered, and it will only float over very special non-ferrous surfaces, like copper and aluminum.

But it none of that bothers you and you have the cash burning a hole in your pocket, go for it!

The Super Scientific Way

Leave it to Ellen Degeneres to get into the sports prediction business.

On her show yesterday, she brought in two representatives of the two teams involved in the World Series, the San Francisco Giants and the Kansas City Royals.

Okay, truthfully, it was two guys in baseball pants and hats from the two teams - the wardrobe budget appears to have run out when it came to buying the guys jerseys.

But no one in the audience seemed to mind.

In fact, the super scientific predictor was to send the two guys into the audience - the predicted winner would be the dancer who collected the most money in his shorts.

Yes. No need to read it again - it's what happened.

So hang onto this to see how good Ellen's process is...

You're Goin' Down!

Chelsea Handler is well-known for just letting fly whatever comes to mind.

Some folks would suggest that her thoughts are often formed in her oral cavity instead of her cranium.

The other night on Late Night with Conan O'Brien, she was working toward something when she asked Conan and his co-host, Andy Richter, whether they liked the ocean.

Andy said he did - and Chelsea fumbled her way into an ill-defined and -conceived fat joke.

Andy handled it perfectly, and his response put Chelsea in her place.

Check it out.

KJ's Hollywood Dirt for 10/21/2014

Kris Jenner Says the Bruce Jenner Sex Change Rumors are "Silly"

KRIS JENNER would like you to know that her estranged husband BRUCE is NOT becoming a woman. On the "Today" show yesterday, she said the rumors are "silly" . . . adding, quote, "They've been saying that since the '70s."

Kris also pretended she had no idea who Bruce is dating right now . . . despite rumors that she's FURIOUS at him for hooking up with her best friend.

She said, quote, "I just want him to be happy, I don't care who he goes out with. And I don't know who he's dating, he doesn't check in with me."

Jenny McCarthy and Donnie Wahlberg Have Hot Chocolate Every Night

When they say it's the little things that keep a marriage together, this is what they're talking about: DONNIE WAHLBERG and JENNY MCCARTHY have a daily appointment with each other.

Donnie says, quote, "Jenny and I have hot chocolate together every night. I know a cup of hot chocolate doesn't sound glamorous but it's those quiet moments with us as a family that are my favorite.

"We have our own things during the day, but this is our time to cuddle up and catch up on our days."

We should probably note that Donnie said this at an event hyping the Keurig 2.0, and he made sure to point out that they make their hot chocolate with that machine.

He's also partnered with Keurig for a contest where someone can actually win a coffee date with him.

Kim Kardashian's Demands to Endorse a Product Include Up to $1 Million in Cold, Hard Cash

If you want KIM KARDASHIAN to endorse your product, it's going to cost you BIG TIME. Some trashy website got a hold of some emails between Kim and a company that was hoping to hire her. Here were her demands:

For starters, the endorsement itself costs $750,000 to $1 million. And if you need Kim to actually make an APPEARANCE to hype your brand, she requires a lot more than that.

• She wants FIVE first class plane tickets, plus one in COACH.

• First class hotel accommodations: 1 suite for the "talent" and standard rooms for the rest of her posse.

• A "GLAM FEE" . . . meaning a day rate for her hair and makeup team.

• Plus first-class ground transportation, an airport greeter service, security and a per diem.

Does anyone else find it odd that Kim has ONE employee that she makes fly coach???

Kristen Stewart and Jennifer Lawrence's Ex Are Just Friends With Benefits

KRISTEN STEWART and JENNIFER LAWRENCE's ex-boyfriend NICHOLAS HOULT may be hooking up, but don't expect a proposal anytime soon. Apparently, they're just FRIENDS WITH BENEFITS.

A source says, quote, "Kristen absolutely adores Nick. Is she in love with him? No, not at all. She's in love with her independence right now and the peace that comes with not dating anyone seriously."

That's because Kristen still considers ROBERT PATTINSON the love of her life, and she's still not ready for anything serious. And, in typical guy fashion, Nick is cool with the no-strings arrangement.

"Sharknado 3" Will Take Place Across the Eastern Seaboard

It still remains unclear whether America will care about yet another "Sharknado" movie . . . but in case YOU do, they've announced where it's going to be set.

The third movie will begin in Washington, D.C., before the action moves down to Orlando. Or, as the official "Sharknado" Twitter account calls it, the "Feast Coast." The first movie was in L.A., and the sequel was set in New York City.

There's still no title for "Sharknado 3" . . . and we don't know whether IAN ZIERING and TARA REID will be back. Last we heard, Ian was holding out for more money. The third movie will air sometime next year.

Kooking with Kardashian?

Kris Jenner - aka Mama Kardashian - showed up on The Today Show yesterday, hawking her new kookbook.

Because when you think of kuisine, your mind instantly goes to "Kardashian," am I right?

In her defense, she says she's been feeding her khildren since she had Kourtney when Kris was just 22. "They give you a baby, you've gotta feed it."

If that doesn't get her some sort of Mom of the Year award - well, it will just be a travesty.
