Caught & Social: Batman stars suffer daylight rubbery
In the final cut, with the benefit of lighting and atmospheric music, on screen superheroes can look quite cool. Off screen, they can just end up looking a tad ridiculous, something Christian Bale and Anne Hathaway probably discovered while filming the latest Batman film, The Dark Knight Rises in LA. We were also left wondering why Catwoman (Hathaway) needs to wear such vertiginous heels.

Kate Middleton could be a Vogue cover star. The New York Post says Anna Wintour is “quietly but persuasively campaigning” to land the Duchess of Cambridge for a magazine shoot. In other Wintour news, she was spotted in Milan wearing a dress she had previously worn to Downing Street just a week ago. Whatever next?
Supermodel Lara Stone (aka Mrs David Walliams) has expressed her support for the prostitutes in her homeland. “The women are their own bosses,”she tells the NewYork Times. “They rent their own space, they pay taxes. It’s better than standing on the corner like a crack whore. They get more bloody benefits than I do.” We hope she’s not planning a career change.

The former star of British classics Blackadder and MrBean caused controversy at the weekend when he described “many”of the Church of England clerics he had met as “people of such extraordinary smugness and arrogance and conceitedness”. Perhaps conveniently, the UK premiere of Johnny English Returns takes place this Sunday, an inconvenient day for clerics to picket the film.
Today’s rock is no good for Noel
Noel Gallagher does his bit for cultural diplomacy as he promotes his solo album High Flying Birds inMilan. In a recent interview, the singer called his former band Oasis “the last great, traditional rock’n'roll band”. Describing the present state of rock’n’roll as “really f***ing bad now”, he told NME what was needed was a certain “someone somewhere like Ian Brown, Liam [Gallagher] or Bobby Gillespie, or a songwriter like me who can retell the story.”Presumably that person will also need his gift for modestyTagged in: anne hathaway, batman, celebrity gossip, christian bale, David Walliams, Johnny English Returns, Kate Middleton, Lara Stone, Nancy Dell’Olio, Noel Gallagher, Rowan Atkinson
