BRAD PITT STILL CATCHING HEAT FOR HIS COMMENTS - JENNIFER ANISTON ANNOYED: BRAD PITT is still dealing with saying his life was "uninteresting" when he was married to JENNIFER ANISTON. And in an interview he shot for this morning's "Today" show he said he wants it to stop. Quote, "My point was, the best thing I'd done as a father is be sure that my kids have a good mother. That's all I was, or am, trying to say. It has no reference to the past. And I think it's a shame that I can't say something nice about Angie without Jen being drug in."

Meanwhile ... Us Weekly claims sources say that the reason Brad is being so contrite and apologetic is because Jennifer's people went off on him. "[Jennifer] was annoyed," a friend told the tab. "She thought it was rude and inappropriate." Jen's people are said to have gone "ballistic" when they read the Brad quotes in "Parade" and "angrily" reached out to Brad's people "They got his team involved and Brad was read the riot act." Brad eventually clarified his statement, insisting that what he said was being misinterpreted by the press.

QUOTE/UNQUOTE: "I didn't like the way I looked, and I didn't want to have fat sex!" -- KIRSTIE ALLEY on why she lost 100 pounds in an interview with "People" magazine.

Sadly, she doesn't explain what 'fat sex' is, but from personal experience I can tell you it involves lots of huffing and puffing -- and not in a good way, and the words "Get off me now"

ROMANCE REPORT - RYAN GOSLING AND EVA MENDES TOGETHER AGAIN: Perhaps there is something to the rumors of a RYAN GOSLING/EVA MENDES romance. The two were recently caught enjoying each other's company at Disneyland, and this past weekend they were seen hiking together at L.A.'s Griffith Park Observatory. Hiking???!!! Those are not sensible hiking shoes, Eva!

"There's always been a strong chemistry between them," a source tells Us. "This was just a matter of time!"

On a related note … Eva was so convinced someone was following her while she was driving around Hollywood the other night that she drove straight to the nearest police station. TMZ says the cops went looking for the culprit but couldn't find the person. Still, they escorted the actress home. It's not known whether it was an overzealous paparazzi or a rabid fan.


OLIVIA WILDE - IS RYAN REYNOLDS HITTIN' DAT??? OR IS HE ABOUT TO MARRY SANDRA BULLOCK!!!: RYAN REYNOLDS was seen in New York City last weekend with OLIVIA WILDE, so of course, the World Wide Web of Celebrity Speculation is wondering if he's hittin' that.

Reps for both of them deny a romantic relationship saying they're just friends and have been since they did the movie "The Change Up".

Meanwhile ... the "Star" tabloid says Ryan can't be hooking up with Wilde because he's about to marry SANDRA BULLOCK. Their "source" says, quote, "Ryan told her he was ready to tie the knot whenever she wants. And after seeing how quickly he's bonded with baby Louis, she decided she's ready to pull the trigger, too. So they started discussing the logistics of pulling off a low-key, barefoot wedding that would reflect their laid-back lifestyle." Reps for neither have commented. Probably cuz it's too ridiculous to acknowledge with a comment.
