Michael Sheen Calmed By Fatherhood

Actor Michael Sheen has credited fatherhood with teaching him tolerance and helping to tame his temper.

The Queen star was reported to have punched actor Jeremy Northam on the set of 2000 movie The Golden Bowl after he allegedly insulted Sheen’s then-girlfriend Kate Beckinsale.  But Sheen insists he has learned to be patient in trying situations since welcoming a daughter, Lily, with Beckinsale in 1999.  Speaking about his temper, he tells Britain’s Seven magazine,

“I think less so now… I hope it’s not indiscriminate rage. I always feel it’s justified. That (incident with Northam) was a long time ago. If I feel there is a situation where somebody is being very badly behaved or out of control or upsetting people needlessly, then I don’t hold back. I try to sort that out, but that happens less and less…
“I think being a parent changes that. You can’t go flying off the handle all the time. You have to learn to be patient and tolerant. You can’t just walk away and you can’t just shout. It’s about people accepting your flaws as much as you accepting theirs… I don’t hit anyone any more. I haven’t hit anyone for a long time.”

Jane Carrey Splits From Husband

Jim Carrey’s only daughter Jane has split from her singer husband Alex Santana, just a year after marrying in a secret ceremony.

Singer/songwriter Jane Carrey wed Blood Money star Santana in November 2009 and the couple welcomed a baby boy, named Jackson, in February (10).  But 23-year-old Carrey and Santana have since parted ways.  Confirming the news to In Touch Weekly, the actor’s spokeswoman, Marleah Leslie, says,

“The couple will remain friends, as well as devoted parents to their nine -month-old son, Jackson Riley.”

Jane is Carrey’s daughter with first wife Melissa Womer, who he divorced in 1995.

Do you think Jane was too young to get married?

Gillian Anderson: ‘Communication Is Key To Parenting’

Former The X-Files star Gillian Anderson talks to her daughter “non-stop” in a bid to prevent the teen from following in her own rebellious footsteps.

Anderson insists she was a nightmare for her parents to raise after the family moved from London to America when she was just 11 years old, and she feared her own daughter would act out too when they relocated to Britain.  She tells Britain’s The Sun,

“I had some difficult, rebellious teenage years. When I left high school my classmates voted me Most Likely to be Arrested.

“Although I was born in America, I regarded London as home. But I then found myself living with my parents in the middle of Michigan. Exactly the same thing happened, in reverse, with my own daughter Piper. She was brought up in America and I brought her with me – aged 11 – when I moved back to London.”

The actress uses every opportunity to communicate with Piper, now aged 16, to ensure their relationship remains strong.  Anderson adds,

“What I learned about those years is that I should have talked more about what I was feeling instead of behaving in a silent, resentful way… I should have talked more about my feelings.

“The result is that I now talk to Piper non-stop. But I do think plenty of talking to each other – and talking through everything – is the way forward.”

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt At “The Tourist”

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt dazzle on the red carpet at the world premiere of “The Tourist” at the Ziegfield Theater in New York. I wonder how good this will be, though it’s tough to beat the star studded cast including Jolie, Johnny Depp, and Paul Bettany.

By the way, I love the Ziegfeld…it’s old school and opulent, a grand affair.  It’s ugly on the outside, but great on the inside. The theatre features 1,131 seats: 825 seats in the front section and 306 seats in the raised balcony section in the rear. The interior is decorated with red carpeting and gold trim. I would say it’s the last movie “palace” still showing films in Manhattan and having been built in 1969 it’s one of the last real movie palaces built in Amerca. Thank goodness for these premieres or it would be condos by now!
