Jill Jackson’s Hollywood

by Jill Jackson

HOLLYWOOD…How many of you wait up to watch David Letterman on the “Late Show”? I do. And sometimes I wonder about what he thinks is amusing, like dumping a load of pumpkins from the roof of a skyscraper on to the street below, leaving the pavement full of squashed pumpkins. Or a load of cotton bales, leaving them all over the street. Or once a truck full of ice. Funny? I don’t think so. What do you think?

And how do you like Sandra Sandra Bullock Bullock as a blonde in her latest movie, The Blind Side? That’s what you’ll be seeing for now. And speaking of Bullock, as yet I’ve had no word as to whether she will take up permanent resident in that mansion she purchased in the New Orleans Garden District.

The good news is that my source tells me Chris Pine will soon be back from Philadelphia, where he’s been shooting a film. And when he returns, she will have him call me. Oh joy! Not since Clark Gable has an actor set so many feminine hearts on fire. Not Leo. Not George. CHRIS!

And speaking of Leo, Tobey, et al., I presume they are busily doing their holiday shopping, because of late they have not been capering up and down the boulevard. (Translated: nightclubbing.)

It’s big. It’s heavy. It’s packed full of pictures and copy about Hollywood: The stars.

Where they go. Where they eat. Things to do, and pictures of them doing it. It’s a big, big book titled The World in Vogue (Knopf). It costs $475, and if that’s what you want — a colossal coffee-table book — to me, this is it!

This time, her hair was long and blond. That was Charlize Theron when she attended the premiere of The Road, along with Viggo Mortensen at the gorgeous Chinese Theater on Sunset Boulevard. Her man of the moment was there, but didn’t pose for the cameras. And to all of you who plan a trip to filmtown, be sure to take in the Chinese Theater. It’s a numero uno attraction.

Candice Bergen joins the cast of The Romantics, which also stars Anna Paquin and Katie Holmes. Along with the passing years, Candice manages to keep busy before the cameras and also in her private life. How many of you remember her famous father, ventriloquist Edgar Bergen, and her beautiful mother, Frances, also an actress?

George Clooney finds time not only to act, but to executive produce. (And, I might add, “to date the ladies.”) His next production will be titled Delta, about an unusual Memphis cop who lives with his mother and moonlights as an Elvis impersonator. At the moment, no word as to whether “Gorgeous George” will have a role in the film, too. Also at the moment, I cannot give you the name of his “lady love” because I do not think there is just one.

BITS ‘N’ PIECES: Heather Locklear, looking more mature, returning to “Melrose Place” and making the round of talk shows to announce it. … Ricky Gervais hosts the “Golden Globes Award Show” come January. … All those jokes about drinking pilots are upsetting “frequent fliers.” … And just as I write this, the phone rings.

Word from Chris Pine’s agent telling me he is now “seeing a lady.” She’s an actress by the name of Olivia Munn. That’s all I know for now.
