Bye Bye Brad Jr.Sorry to say it ladies, but Brad Pitt has vowed to stay fully clothed for the rest of his Hollywood career. “I can’t see any more nude scenes,” the blonde bombshell told BBC. “I don’t want to be embarrassed when my kids get old enough to see my films.” So I guess Brad will be zooming around the world destroying every copy of Thelma and Louise then? Good luck Brad, but I know too many who wouldn’t give it up for the world.

Preparing For No PamelaPamela Anderson has announced that she will be retiring…in half a decade. “Five more years of [T&A] and I’ll go back to Canada.” Anderson informed USA Today of her withdrawal from show business, however, as the Mass Media’s Chad Cid-Hogan notes, “her legacy and her hepatitis will last forever.”

Off to SundanceThe annual Sundance Film Festival will be underway in several weeks, and actors of sorts are getting ready to make the trek to Utah. Nick Notle, Billy Crudup and Ray Romano are several of the actors who will be visiting Robert Redford in Sundance. Their films are only some of the 121 planned for showing, including the world premiere s of 81. Over 20 countries will be represented at the 2008 festival.

Jake as JoeThe adorable Jake Gyllenhall will be starring as Joe Namath in the upcoming film about the Hall of Famer’s life. The movie will follow Namath from his early childhood in Beaver Falls, Pennsylvania, throughout his rise to fame.

Off the Market?Jennifer Love Hewitt has done the unthinkable: promised herself to 31-year-old Scottish Ross McCall. The two have been dating for several years, and only got engaged last week. Though males from a wide range of ages are sad to see her go, the good news is nothing is final. We all know how things tend to fall apart in Hollywood, so there’s still hope. Just wish real hard, and maybe they’ll call it off. Because, of course, the Ghost Whisperer star will be within your grasps if she is single. Keep on dreaming boys.
