FISHER JOKING ABOUT STAR WARS RETURN, ALTHOUGH LUCAS TELLS ANOTHER STORY
Earlier this week, Carrie Fisher claimed she’d be returning to the role of Princess Leia in the new Star Wars films, but now she’s backtracking. When asked by CNN if she’d be back, she replied, “yes,” adding that her character would likely be, “elderly. She's in an intergalactic old folks' home. I just think she would be just like she was before, only slower and less inclined to be up for the big battle." But on Wednesday, Fisher’s rep denied anything’s definite, saying, “She was joking.” But that’s news to Star Wars creator George Lucas. He recently told Bloomberg Business Week that Fisher, Harrison Ford and Mark Hamill will indeed be in the new films. “We had already signed Mark and Carrie and Harrison—or we were pretty much in final stages of negotiation,” he said about the new films. “Maybe I’m not supposed to say that. I think they want to announce that with some big whoop-de-do, but we were negotiating with them.”

TURTLE CREATOR NOT A MEGAN FOX FAN
Michael Bay may be happy to have Megan Fox play April O’Neil in his new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie, but not everyone shares his opinion. Peter Laird, who created TMNT with Kevin Eastman, took to his blog to voice his displeasure with the casting. "My only exposure to Megan Fox as an actress is through her role in two Transformers movies and the wretched (but happily forgettable) Jennifer's Body," he wrote. "It may not be fair to judge her range of acting skills just from those three movies, but I think it is safe to say that there are probably hundreds of better choices for the role of April O'Neil." He added, “Of course, her name has promotional value, and maybe that's what they want. Who knows? I can't get myself too worked up about it."
HANDLER TALKS TAYLOR & ANGELINA
During an appearance on Watch What Happens Live earlier this week, the always irreverent Chelsea Handler went off on both Taylor Swift and Angelina Jolie. As for why Swift goes through so many men, Chelsea explained, “My theory about Taylor Swift is that she’s a virgin, that everyone breaks up with her because they date her for two weeks and she’s like, ‘I’m not gonna do it.’ and they’re like, ‘oh well, forget it. Then I don’t want to date you.’” She added, “Every guy thinks they’re gonna de-virginize her, and they’re not. She’s never going to get de-virginized, ever, ever, ever, ever.” Handler, a good friend of Jennifer Aniston, also had a few choice words to say about Angelina Jolie, who she’s been critical of in the past. "She seems like a demon,” said Chelsea. “It has nothing to do with Jennifer. As a woman, I know when you see somebody walking across the room that's a bad girl. I just don't like Angelina Jolie. I don't think she's a girl's girl. I like girl's girls!"
