Sassy Sienna Miller makes a Broadway debut

Sienna Miller

NEW YORK – It certainly sounds juicy: A British starlet makes her Broadway debut opposite her ex-fiance's best friend in a play about a doomed love triangle. Making it even spicier? Her ex-fiance happens to be just two blocks away in his own play.
Too delicious, right? But Sienna Miller will have none of it. Yes, Jude Law is playing the lead in "Hamlet" at the same time that she's in "After Miss Julie" with Law's best friend, but so what?
She says there's no bad blood between her and the man with whom she was engaged until 2006 when he cheated on her during a fling with the nanny of his three children.
"People want to make a big thing that it's weird — it's not," the 27-year-old actress says. "For me, people would love to make a whole meal out of it, but I've seen 'Hamlet' twice now and there's no weirdness for me personally that he's there and I'm here."

Mischa Barton - 5150, 5151 Whatever It Takes...

Mischa's been placed under an involuntary psychiatric hold (also known as a 5150) by the Los Angeles Police Department and is currently at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, reports Access Hollywood.

The next 72 hours could bring serious soul searching and seriously hot photo-shoots of her in white. Defamer says she missed her comeback in New York tonight by missing the premiere of her new movie, Homecoming. Or, just maybe, the comeback starts with 72 hours of crazy...

And in all seriousness, we all hope she's just "actor crazy" which can be fun and exciting, and not anything else, which is definitely not. FLiXER believes a healthy twiggy actor, is a happy twiggy actor.

It does appear Michael converted to Islam in November of 2008. The singer, who was raised as a Jehovah's Witness, converted to Islam in a ceremony at a friend's house in Los Angeles. He is said to have sat on the floor and worn a small hat while an imam officiated.
