Authorities declined to name the pair, but British news reports identified them as Neville Thurlbeck and Ian Edmondson, the chief reporter and former news editor, respectively, of the News of the World, a British weekly specializing in celebrity gossip and sensational stories.

With six movies out this fall, Jude Law runs the risk of extreme overexposure. But give the 31-year-old British heartthrob credit: He never does anything twice.

But it's his latest role, as the charming cad in the comedy-drama "Alfie," which opens Friday, that's tailor-made for the two-time Oscar nominee.

Like father, like son. "2 Jacks," Bernard Rose's cleverly faithful adaptation of Leo Tolstoy's short story "Two Hussars," takes place over the course of two wild nights in Hollywood. In the first, presented mostly in black and white except for some whimsical tinted accents, legendary director Jack Hussar (Danny Huston) sweeps into town to raise money for his next picture, which he's shooting in the Belgian Congo. Apparently penniless, with a reputation for making movies that don't make any money, he skates by on the goodwill of sycophants in a Hollywood version of how Hollywood works.

But bushy brows are back for fall in a big way. Think Brooke Shields in her skin-tight Calvin Klein jeans, with those thick, healthy arches that veiled smoldering eyes.

Everyone should talk about: Kelly Clarkson's "All I Ever Wanted" After the album leaked online last month got an advance rave in this paper, there's no reason not to give Clarkson a second chance. "My December" is in the past. Her new disc promises plenty of Pink-style independent woman, kiss-off power pop that shreds her every last vocal cord. In the best way, of course. (Tuesday) -- Got kids? You will want to talk about: "Pinocchio" Forget having a wooden nose.
