Maggie Gyllenhaal is all set to play the lead role in the ‘Hysteria’.

The Hollywood actress, 32, is said to have agreed to star in the new Victorian-era romantic comedy telling the story of the invention of the vibrator.

She will star alongside Jonathan Pryce and Rupert Everett.

“I play a firecracker whose father is a doctor who is in the business of curing hysterical women. He cures them basically by getting them off and that actually happened,” the Telegraph quoted her as saying.

“I end up having a sort of unexpected love affair with this guy who works for him, and who by mistake invents the vibrator,” she added.

The film, to be directed by Tanya Wexler, will commence production in October in London and Luxembourg, and is scheduled for release in 2011.


Dina Lohan, Lindsay Lohan’s mother, has recently revealed to the press that the life of her daughter will come back to norm after she completes her 90-day treatment in rehab. The woman is sure that the Hollywood actress won’t face an untimely death. It is known that the star of Mean Girls was sentenced to jail this summer for her probation violation after 2007 arrest.

Instead of 90 days, the star served only 13 days in jail before she was transferred to a rehabilitation centre located in California. According to a court order, the star will have to spend 90 days in that medical facility where she is already being treated for drug addiction.

But Dina claims that the 24-year-old star is doing her best to rebuild her career and life in general and will definitely succeed in it if the paparazzi get off her back.
Contactmusic.com reproduced Dina’s words when she declared that she didn’t have a crystal ball and couldn’t foresee her precious daughter dying young.
Lindsay’s mother also adds that the actress will move back to New York after her 90-day treatment in rehab comes to an end. That will be done by the star in order to avoid Hollywood pressures.

Tabloids have been spreading rumors that there are romantic relations between Derek Hough and his dancer partner Cheryl Cole that have been lasing for months, despite the fact that they continue to assure everyone that they are “just good friends.”

Brian Friedman, X Factor choreographer, has recently confirmed that these young people are actually a couple.

Brian had plenty to say after he met both of them in Los Angeles where Cheryl had a bout of malaria and Derek was staying by her side.

He told the Daily Mirror that he had been in touch with Derek and Cheryl since they had been over in Los Angeles. According to him, he is really very close with this couple. Brian finds them amazing and thinks that they have made a good couple. All that he could add is that Derek and Cheryl are incredibly happy at the moment.

It was obvious judging by a number of occasions that Derek was sincerely devoted to Cheryl. He supported his star girlfriend when she was coping with malaria, and was always by her side after her break-up and divorce from her husband – Ashley Cole.

Lindsay Lohan’s mother Dina has slammed Superior Court Judge Marsha Revel for playing “hardball” in her daughter”s case.

Revel, who sent the ‘Mean Girls’ star behind bars, stepped down from the case this week.

Dina also alleged that Revel rescued herself because she faced potential backlash for going against the LA County District Attorney”s advice.

“I think she went overboard and played serious hardball with Lindsay. She was in [court] for missing a couple of classes … the judge put her in serious lockdown for two weeks with alleged murderers,” the New York Post quoted her as telling Matt Lauer in NBC”s ‘Today show’.

The 47-year-old mother of four even blamed others for putting false information out into the world about Lindsay.

“That”s all propaganda. What a lot of people are reading … I think a lot of it is pre-orchestrated. You”re reading things that are not facts.”

“When you”re saying ”works or not works,” I don”t know where you”re getting that information.”

Dina also said that her daughter’s life is under constant glare, which is not fair.

“As a parent, you have to let them go out a little bit — I think every child goes through a lot of different things. Lindsay, her life is magnified. I really think she”s under a microscope. In the old days, Julia Roberts and those girls didn”t have someone following them and their relationships — cheating on this one and that one. She can”t even go to a Starbucks without 12 cars following us. It”s not fair.”

”Essex Girl” star Denise Van Outen has faced up to her fear of spiders by handling a tarantula for a part in a short film.

She posed with the eight-legged creature as she tackled her spider phobia.

Van Outen helped to calm her fears with a 3D film of spiders created by Sky as an arachnophobia therapy.

The film is being shown at Liverpool”s BugWorld Experience in the build up to the consumer launch of Sky 3D on October 1.

A range of spiders – from domestic and wild bugs, to nasties such as false widows and tarantulas – was filmed, with narration by actor Ralf Little, who is himself no fan of creepy crawlies.

Van Outen handled a Chilean rose tarantula after watching the film.

“I have never been good with spiders – I”m the stand-on-the-bed-screaming type,” the Mirror quoted Outen as saying.

“At times I felt like the spiders were crawling all around me and that I could almost touch them.

“I came out a far braver and calmer lady and was even prepared to hold a spider afterwards,” she said.

Was Lindsay Lohan provided with any special treatment when she was serving her term in jail?
Radar Online reported that according to the words of Katie A., an inmate, the 24-year-old star received special treatment when she was at Century Regional Detention Facility located in Lynwood, Calif.

Katie told Radar Online that any time when Lohan left her cell, the entire jail locked down. It seemed to her that they were on lockdown all the time. Katie added that despite the fact that the actress spent so much time in her cell, several times a day she was released to go to the medical clinic.

That inmate also revealed to the press that according to the rules of Century Regional Detention Facility, a clean uniform is given once a week, whereas Lindsay received it every day.

It turned out that the star was given some other priorities. Picking up reading material for her was of great importance for the jail personnel. Katie explained that one jail worker was searching the whole day for books written by Ernest Hemmingway for the actress.

We still remember that Shawn Chapman Holley, the actress’ legal counsel, informed Access Hollywood.com last month that Lindsay Lohan didn’t receive any special treatment in jail.

Some major dirt was dished on Tuesday morning by “Eat Pray Love” director and “Glee” creator Ryan Murphy with Ryan Seacrest, including his confirmation that in the Britney-themed episode the princess of pop will take part.
Ryan said on KIIS-FM’s “On-Air With Ryan Seacrest” that it was 100 percent for sure that Britney would appear on the episode. According to him, it was really exciting. He added that she would join them and do several scenes.

As AccessHollywood.com previously reported, interest had been expressed by Britney’s camp in the star’s participating in the episode.

Billy Bush from Access Hollywood learned from Murphy at the junket dedicated to the “Eat Pray Love,” which was held in July, that the diva’s people wanted to do that. Like Madonna, he was given carte blanche. According to Ryan, they were aware that his crew were great fans of Britney Spears, so, he would do it in quite a reverential way. As Ryan Murphy pointed out, he only needed to give the singer the dates.
In spite of the fact that the official airdate for the episode in which Britney will appear is still not disclosed, paparazzi managed to take some photos last week, in which Lea Michele, the star of the show, is snapped on set in Britney’s garb for “…Baby One More Time.”
