Is George Clooney Making Amal Alamuddin Sign a Prenup?
Somehow I pictured GEORGE CLOONEY as the kind of guy who WOULDN’T get a prenup. And the fact that he waited 20 years after his divorce to commit to another woman would make you think he’s pretty sure this is the right one.
But on the other hand, he’s only been dating his fiancée, Amal Alamuddin, for SIX MONTHS . . . and he’s worth around $200 million.
The “Star” tabloid claims he IS making her sign a prenup . . . quote, “He has had so many friends go through hell because of a split. He just wants to make sure that doesn’t happen to him if, God forbid, he and Amal break up.”

The balloons were PINK, and Snooki seemed a little worried about that. She said, quote, “Oh my goodness, we’re having a girl! Yay! Oh God, kill me.”
She added, quote, “Well there you have it. We are having a little girl. And I don’t know how I feel about it. I’m terrified. But we’re really, really excited.” (Here’s video.)
Jon Hamm Thinks His Sex Symbol Status is Silly
Millions of women consider JON HAMM a sex symbol. Well, it turns out he doesn’t agree.
He says, quote, “It’s silly. First of all, it’s completely arbitrary. Point me to 50 people online who think I’m super sexy, I’ll point you to 50 more who say, ‘He’s old and looks like my dad.’ It’s not universal. If you buy into that, you’re crazy.”
He’s also humble about his WORK . . . quote, “It’s nice that people tell you, ‘I like what you do.’ . . . You can never feel entitled.”
Paula Patton Poses Topless . . . And Says There’s Still a “Deep Love” Between Her and Robin Thicke

She also revealed that before their first kiss, Robin sang JODECI’S “Forever My Lady” to her in his parents’ living room. She added, quote, “He wasn’t my first kiss, but he was my first lots of other things.”
(Paula also posed TOPLESS in the issue. But sadly, all the important bits were COVERED. Here are the photos anyway.)

She told the paparazzi, quote, “Here’s the deal: There was nothing sexual about that picture or that situation.

JENNIFER LAWRENCE is still waiting for us to TURN ON HER. She says, quote, “Nobody can stay beloved forever . . . People are going to get sick of me . . . It’s something I always tell myself: ‘You need to calm the [eff] down. You don’t want to constantly be a GIF.’”
