Chris Rock anti wife have first child
NEW YORK (AP) — Chris Rock has something to smile about — the actor-comedian is the proud father of a baby girl.
Rock’s wife, Malaak Compton-Rock, gave birth in New York on Friday,
Rock’s publicist said Monday. The couple named the girl Lola Simone — not Holiday, the name that Rock had touted before the baby’s birth,
It is the first child for both Rock, 36, and his wife, 32.
Rock’s latest movie is the comedic thriller Bad Company with Anthony Hopkins. Compton-Rock is the executive director of the charity Style Works.
Salsa-pop singer Mare Anthony, wife separate
NEW YORK (AP) — After two years of marriage, singer Marc Anthony and his wife, former Miss Universe Dayanara Torres, have separated.
The couple was married in May 2000 in Las Vegas, according to a statement from Anthony’s production company.
Anthony, 33, and Torres, 26, have a 16-month-old son, Christian Anthony Muniz. Anthony also has a daughter from a previous relationship.
The New York-born Anthony is a salsa singer who crossed over to U.S. pop charts with the song I Need to Know. His song I Need You is currently on the Billboard top-IO Adult Contemporary list.
Anisum settles topless photo lawsuit
LOS ANGELES (AP) — With husband Brad Pitt at her side, Friends star Jennifer Aniston yesterday settled her privacy lawsuit against two magazines that published photographs of her sunbathing topless in her back yard.
“We have perfected a settlement that’s confidential ... this matter has been resolved,” U.S. District Judge Ronald S.W. Lew said after a 2 172-hour in-chambers meeting with attorneys. Pitt and Aniston were in court for the announcement just before noon, but they left without speaking to reporters.
The nonjury trial in Aniston’s lawsuit had been scheduled to begin yesterday.
Aniston claimed a paparazzi photographer scaled a neighbour’s wall and, using a telephoto lens, snapped photos of her “reclining topless in her back yard, wearing only her panties.” The pictures then were sold to magazines.
The August 2000 lawsuit against Man’s World Publications Inc. and Crescent Publishing Group, demanding unspecified punitive damages, claimed misappropriation of the right of publicity and constructive trust. Aniston attorney Jay Lavely said the 33-year-old actress was prepared to testify.
Surviving members of The Who launch tour after death of bassist
By Anthony Breznican
LOS ANGELES — The Who turned their mourning into defiant energy in their first concert after the death of their longtime bassist.
Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey, the surviving members of the seminal, 1960’s British rock band performed Monday night at the Hollywood Bowl in the group’s first concert since John Entwistle’s death last week.
The first two shows of the group’s North American tour were cancelled after Entwistle, 57, died in his sleep Thursday in Las Vegas, and his bandmates vowed to continue as a tribute to him.
“We just wanted to say that tonight we played for John Entwistle,” Daltrey said after opening the show with the hits, I Can’t Explain and Substitute. “He was the true spirit of rock ’n’ roll and he lives on in the music we play.”
The group, featuring substitute bass player Pino Palladino, then launched into a frenetic rendition of Who Are You.
Earlier, Townshend said he did not expect Palladino, who has played with Tears for Fears, Erie Clapton and Elton John, to “emulate, parody or copy John Entwistle in any way.”
“The one request I made was that — at first — he play as loud as he can bear!” the guitarist said in a message posted on his Web site,
Entwistle, Daltrey and Townshend were three of the founding members of the rock quartet. Drummer Keith Moon died in 1978 of a drug overdose.
The group, founded in London in the early 1960s, was part of the British rock invasion along with the Rolling Stones and the Beatles. Their parade of hits included I Can See For Miles, Pinball Wizard, and Won’t Get Fooled Again.
The Who has been known for explosive shows that often culminate in the smashing of their musical instruments on stage. But
Roger Daltrey, left, and Pete Townshend of The Who perform at the Hollywood Bowl Monday. Daltrey dedicated the band’s performance to their late band member. John Entwistle.
Entwistle’s bass guitar work was known for its great reserve, anchoring the wildman antics of the other players.
Fans at the packed Hollywood Bowl gave the group a standing ovation before a single note was played. Palladino played the first few songs off to the side, often in shadow.
Before the set began, giant screens featured video of the group rehearsing at Townshend’s home nearly two weeks before Entwistle’s death. The audience cheered and applauded each time Entwistle was seen.
Many said they were sorry that he was gone, but believe The Who would survive
“The truth of the matter is, Entwistle was very mellow, so he affects the music but he doesn’t affect the stage dynamic as much,” said Howard Fuchs, 50, a Los Angeles attorney who said he had seen the
group perform nearly 20 times. “He was unique and replaceable all in one.”
Most fans said they were glad the band planned to continue.
“I’ve lost good friends in my life and the best thing you can do to get it out of your system is to express it through music,” said Michael May, 39, of Los Angeles, a camera operator and amateur guitarist.
Midway through the show, Townshend took the microphone to thank fans for supporting the band during their time of mourning.
“We’re not just pretending as if nothing happened,” Townshend said. “It is difficult.”
At the end of the show, he and Daltrey embraced and waved farewell to a giant screen beside the stage on which was projected images of Entwistle from his youth to his older days.
Board considers moving up Oscar show
LOS ANGELES — Future Academy Awards could be held a month earlier if Oscar overseers approve a change because of complaints about the long awards season.
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ board of governors voted last week to explore moving the Oscar show from March to February in 2004.
The board could decide in about a month whether to move up the date, said Bruce Davis, academy executive director.
Some people think Oscar campaigning is out of hand, with studios pouring millions of dollars into advertising in Hollywood trade papers to position their movies for awards. The early part of the year also has become cluttered with other film honours leading up to the Oscars.
The change would not affect next spring’s Oscars, scheduled for March 23.
The board also voted to limit Oscar telecasts to 3 1/2 hours or less, Davis said. Three of the last four shows exceeded four hours, running past midnight on the East Coast.

Movie, TV acting jobs decline 9.3 per cent
LOS ANGELES — The number of movie and television roles for Screen Actors Guild members dropped 9.3 per cent last year, with supporting actors among the hardest hit, the union said.
So-called runaway production, in which projects are filmed outside the United States, was one reason for the decline, SAG said.
Guild members tend to be used only in principal roles abroad, said spokeswoman Ilyanne Kichaven. SAG believes U.S.-based productions would be more likely to use union actors in
supporting roles as well, she said.
The rise of reality TV programs and a drop in production that followed SAG and Writers Guild of America contract negotiations in 2001 also contnbuted to the decrease, Kichaven said.
For 2001, according to the report released Monday, 48,167 roles were cast under guild contracts, compared to 53,134 in2000.
“SAG is actively seeking remedies to bring more opportuni
ties to our members,” guild president Melissa Gilbert said.
Kichaven said SAG’s “Global Rule One” drive could have an impact on the plight of supporting actors. On May I, the union increased enforcement of its requirement that members work under SAG contracts for foreign-filmed projects intended for U.S. distribution.
