    Britney Spears credits her father, building contractor-turned conservator Jamie Spears, for “saving her life,” according to a report from Radar Online.

    “Britney now recognizes that if her father hadn’t stepped in and taken the action that he had, well…. Britney is now crediting Jamie for saving her life,” an insider tells

    “Britney is on top of the world right now. She is getting ready for the next leg of her world tour, which will be on September 22 in Moscow. Her father will be with her for some of the European performances, along with her mom. Britney’s relationship with her dad is in a very, very good place now. She was extremely emotional backstage before leaving for the VMAs and kept telling her daddy how much she loves him.”

    After a series of very public meltdowns, Jamie Spears became his daughter’s conservator–making ALL decisions for the pop star–back in January of 2008. The breaking point for Spears may have been his daughter’s disastrous performance at MTV Music Video Awards in late 2007–where she appeared dazed and wobbly while she performed a lackluster rendition of “Gimme More” in a black sequined bikini.

    Jennifer Aniston has some serious requirements when it comes to boyfriends, and presumably, current beau Justin Theroux manages to fit the bill. “I would say I couldn’t be in a relationship without equality, generosity, integrity, spirit, kindness and humor,” Aniston reveals in the new issue. “And awesomeness!”

    Now that the long unlucky-in-love star has settled into an “awesome” relationship, Aniston claims that her widely chronicled romantic life is not particulaly dramatic. “There’s not nearly as much stealing and obsessing and middle-of-the-night secret calls to ex-boyfriends and scheming and cheating (as they lead you to believe). Most of it’s just bull***t, however entertaining.”

    Meaghan Murphy | 

    Don’t believe the hype–wedding bells aren’t ringing for Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt–yet.

    “I’m not pregnant. I’m not adopting at the moment,” Jolie declares in the new issue of Vanity Fair, adding that there are no plans for a “secret wedding.”

    Instead, the gorgeous Oscar-winner is taking time out to focus on her film career.
“Brad thinks I’m going to be a nightmare,” Jolie laughs, explaining how directing her new movie, “In the Land of Blood and Honey,” has changed the way she approaches her acting career.

    “I had such a good experience he thinks I’m going to be impatient with directors, which I already am. I get impatient with people working on a film that have their head in their hands like it’s the most complicated thing in the world.”

    Brad Pitt’s latest role as a globe-trotting, zombie-hunting United Nations employee turned out to be a life-saving opportunity on the set of his new sci-fi film, World War Z.

    Pitt was filming a scene in Glasgow, Scotland’s George Square with 700 extras when a woman fell and the real-life action hero rushed in to save her.

    “Lots of people hurt themselves, and Brad came to the rescue of a woman who slipped,” an insider explained to the Scottish Sun newspaper. “I don’t think she could believe it when Brad picked her up. He didn’t have time to speak to her, as it was mid-shoot. But she said afterwards how grateful she was, despite having a badly grazed knee.”

    No matter what, former “American Idol” judge Simon Cowell is prepared for the future. After he dies, he plans on having his body cryogenically frozen.

    “It’s an insurance policy,” Cowell tells the September issue of GQ magazine. “If it doesn’t work, it doesn’t work. If it does work, I’ll be happy. If it’s possible, and I think it will be, why not have a second crack? Does that sound crazy? I think it’s a good idea.”

    The snarky 51-year-old adds, “I have a feeling if I don’t do it now, I could regret this in 300 years’ time.”

  • POLL: Is Jim Carrey's message to 22-year-old Emma Stone funny or creepy?

    Meaghan Murphy | 

    Jim Carrey may have a 24-year-old daughter, but that hasn’t stopped him from hitting on a 22-year-old actress in the most public and shameless way possible.

    The 49-year-old funnyman posted a video ode to Emma Stone on his web site that some may find creepy, if not slightly disturbing.

    “”I just wanted to let you know that I think you’re all the way beautiful. Not just pretty, but, you know, smart and kindhearted,” Carrey says. “ If I were a lot younger, I would marry you and we would have chubby little freckle-faced kids. We’d laugh all day long and go camping and play Yahtzee and tell ghost stories by the fire. And every day for the rest of your life you would thank God that I was the appropriate age for you.”
