the Rachel haircut
In an interview with Allure magazine published Tuesday, Aniston said that the layered blow-dried look that was copied by countless women in the 1990s was the 'ugliest haircut I've ever seen.'
'I love (Friends hairstylist) Chris, and he's the bane of my existence at the same time because he started that damn Rachel, which was not my best look,' she said of the haircut named for her Friends character. 'How do I say this? I think it was the ugliest haircut I've ever seen.'
She also found its popularity baffling. 'What I really want to know is, how did that thing have legs?' she asked.
Regis Philbin retiring
Los Angeles (dpa) - US television host Regis Philbin is retiring from the morning TV show that he starred in for 28 years, he announced Tuesday.
Philbin, 79, said he will end his appearances on the Live with Regis and Kelly show at the end of the current season. He has hosted the show with Kelly Ripa since 2001, after previously sharing the hosting duties with Kathie Lee Gifford.
'This will be my last year on the show,' Philbin announced on the air. 'It's been a long time. It's been 28 years. It's been an enormous thrill.'
Explaining that it wasn't an easy decision to make, he added philosophically: 'Everything must come to an end ... especially with certain old people.'
Philbin was also the first host of the gameshow Who Wants to be a Millionaire, which first screened in the US in 1999.
Jennifer Lopez exposes twins to Gucci
Los Angeles (dpa) - Jennifer Lopez has drawn back the curtain on her two-year-old twins, exposing them to the world in an advert for Gucci's new line of children's clothing.
But Lopez is quick to clarify that she's not selling the kids out for a few moments in the media spotlight. She told People.com Monday that it's only because the exclusive clothing line is making a big donation to charity that she agreed to let Max and Emme appear in the ad.
Lopez and her husband Marc Anthony were torn, but eventually agreed.
'Marc didn't really want to put the babies in an ad or anything like that,' Lopez said. 'And I was just like, if they do it, I'd want to do it with my kids because it is for the kids. That's the connection. That's what makes it real. We don't really parade them around like that, so it was for a good cause.'
Johnny Depp to salute Native Americans in The Lone Ranger
Los Angeles (dpa) - Johnny Depp is hoping to pay tribute to the culture of Native Americans when he stars in the big screen version of Disney's The Lone Ranger, he said Tuesday.
Depp, who is part Cherokee, feels a special connection to the role of Tonto which he will play in the film.
'I always felt Native Americans were badly portrayed in Hollywood films over the decades,' he told Entertainment Weekly. 'It's a real opportunity for me to give a salute to them. Tonto was a sidekick in all the Lone Ranger series. [This film] is a very different approach to that partnership. And a funny one I think.'
But there's still no indication when the movie will hit screens.
'I think it's going to be good, when we have a chance to put it up on its feet,' said Depp.
