This Week's Underrated Showbiz Credits

Janet Jackson
1. Secret children and the stars who hide them, for reminding us stars shave skeletons in their closest. The latest matriarchal buzz comes from Janet Jackson’s camp. Young DeBarge, whose brother James was married to the singer from 1984 to 1985, told New York City urban radio station HOT 97, the now 18-year-old Renee was sent away to live with the star's eldest sister Rebbie. A spokeswoman for Jackson's refused to deny the allegations, telling The New York Post the singer wouldn't comment.

2. Bubbly blonde Reese Witherspoon, who topped a new Best Hair poll for her look as a ghost in romantic comedy Just Like Heaven. The actress beat Alfie star Nia Long's locks in Are We There Yet to claim the top spot in style magazine Marie Claire's 10 Best Movie Hair Moments of 2005.

3. Screen beauty Gwyneth Paltrow, who is reportedly pregnant with her second child with hunky hubby and Coldplay frontman Chris Martin. The couple has a 16-month-old daughter, Apple. And we can thank Paltrow’s mother, actress Blythe Danner, for accidentally spilling the beans. Danner tried to backtrack: “Yes, I am (going to be a grandmother again.) Well, I think so. Oh, well I have not checked lately.”

4. Dance sensation Moby, for donating proceeds from T-shirts sales with the slogan "Save an Animal. Eat a Vegetable" to animal right's group Friends of Animals. Moby held an exhibition in his home-town of Stamford, Connecticut last week to showcase illustrated prints and clothing from his Little Idiot line.

5. Unlikely pairings, for coming together for a good cause. The latest: Former US President Bill Clinton will team up with cartoon characters SpongeBob SquarePants and Dora the Explorer as part of a new campaign to urge kids to eat healthier.

6. Hottie Josh Hartnett, for being rated best kisser by Kirsten Dunst. The actress, who has locked lips with several Hollywood heartthrobs, including Tobey Maguire and Orlando Bloom, said she was most thrilled with kissing Hartnett on the set of their film The Virgin Suicides. “I had a crush on him... It was nerve-racking because (the director) made me surprise him (for the scene) where I jump on him and start making out with him,” she said. “It was pretty wonderful.”

7. Former New Kids on the Block Donnie Wahlberg, for complimenting and dissing his brother Mark Wahlberg simultaneously. Donnie believes the glossy Entourage show, executive produced by Mark and said to be loosely based on their lives, is too clean-cut compared to real-life Tinseltown hangers-on. “I wouldn't feel bad about it because the guy loosely based on Mark is so horrible. It's nothing like Mark." Donnie also denied the Johnny Drama character on the show--the fading star and older brother of lead character Vince Chase--is not based on himself.

8. Angelina Jolie’s hairbrush, which recently went up for sale on auction site eBay.com. Fans bid over $36,000 for the chance to own a piece of the star’s hair strands. Jolie reportedly used the brush on the set of The Good Shepherd in New York earlier this summer, and accidentally left it behind.

9. The always cool Samuel L. Jackson, who has signed up to host the third annual Spike TV Video Game Awards next month. Jackson picked up an honor last year for his part in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. The ceremony will be held at the Gibson Ampitheater in Los Angeles.

10. American Idol judge Simon Cowell, for not be embarrassed to admit money matters. The acerbic lothario admits money is his main motivating factor in life and if he could bathe in cash, he would. “If it could pour on me every day like a shower I would lie in that shower for hours,” he said. “I'm very motivated by money. I just love it. The only thing that would make me happier is more money.”
