Galaxy star lived in 'Scooby-Doo' van

Chris Pratt used to live in a 'Scooby-Doo' van. The Guardians of the Galaxy hunk, 35 years old, has revealed he used to be homeless before he landed his big break as an actor and even slept in a rundown vehicle with the favourite cartoon dog printed on the side.

Taking to his official Facebook account, Pratt posted a picture of himself standing next to the white van while clutching a script believed to be Cursed Part 3, which he accompanied with the caption: "Can't believe I found this picture!!! That is the van I lived in!!! In my hand is the script for the movie that got me out of Maui. Crazy.!"

He said last month: "It's [Maui is] a pretty awesome place to be homeless. It would be different if I lived on the streets of Chicago and ate garbage from a dumpster. We just drank and smoked weed and worked minimal hours, 15 to 20 hours per week, just enough to cover gas, food and fishing supplies. You know, it was a charming time."

Martin attracted to Paltrow's opposite

Chris Martin was attracted to Jennifer Lawrence because she's the polar opposite of Gwyneth Paltrow. The Coldplay frontman, 37, reportedly fell for the 24-year-old star's laid-back personality, and friends believe she's good for him following his failed marriage with clean-living Gwyneth, whom he split from in March.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "Jennifer is loads of fun, and they can't stop laughing when they are together. Chris feels he is dating someone who has everything he's been missing out on in the past 11 years."

Gwyneth, 41, is known for her healthy diet and strict fitness routine, while Jennifer smokes and enjoys tucking into pizza, and Chris feels the Hunger Games star has given him a "new lease on life".

The source added: "Jennifer doesn't take herself too seriously, and when she is not filming, she just wants to hang out and have a good time."

Chris has daughter, Apple, 10, and son, Moses, eight, with Gwyneth. Gwyneth has also moved on and is dating Glee executive producer and co-creator Brad Falchuk.

Girl for Christina

Christina Aguilera has given birth to a baby girl.

The 33-year-old singer welcomed her first child with fiancé Matt Rutler via Caesarean-section at Cedars-Sinai Medical Centre in Los Angeles on Saturday. The Your Body hitmaker also delivered her six-year-old son, Max - whom she had with ex-husband Jordan Bratman - via C-section and was keen to give birth to her daughter naturally this time around.

Christina recently showed off her pregnancy body in V Magazine and said she is very "proud" of her figure.

She said previously: "As a woman, I'm proud to embrace my body through all stages of life, staying fearless and confident in surrendering to the unknowns the future has in store."

Cowell expects many directions

Simon Cowell expects One Direction to break up to pursue solo careers.

The media mogul was the mastermind behind the hugely successful boy band, after putting them together on The X Factor UK in 2010. And he has admitted, while he thinks they will make two more albums as a group, their future isn't certain after those records have been released.

He told the Daily Star Sunday newspaper: "Bands don't stay together forever. I think they will make at least two more albums together, and they are in the middle of one right now."

While the 54-year-old star admitted the Story of My Life hitmakers may go solo "eventually", he dismissed the idea Harry Styles would be quitting the band this year to pursue his own career.
