The debate on whether it’s okay for pregnant women always arises and recently Kate Hudson was spotted sipping on a drink during her pregnancy, because of this Babble have come up with a list of 10 celebrities who have either been caught or admitted to drinking while pregnant.
This Real Housewives of New York reality star wrote in her book, Little Kids, Big City, “Throughout my pregnancy, I gave into every craving I felt. When I wanted to have a drink, I did.” She even sipped on champagne while her husband drove her to the hospital to have her son Francois.
In her memoir, Lips Unsealed, this pop/punk princess gave the shocking confession that she drank daily in 1992 while pregnant with her son, James Duke Mason.
Brit reportedly downed amaretto sours, champagne, and a cosmopolitan at K-Fed’s birthday party in 2006, and a month later announced she was five-months pregnant with her second child. Cringe.
Jamie Lynn Spears
Jamie Lynn followed in her big sister’s footsteps, reportedly partying, drinking, and smoking throughout the first trimester of her teenage pregnancy. Luckily, Jamie Lynn cleaned up her act and seems to have a healthy little girl, but this story could have easily had a not-so-happy ending.
Kate took a classier approach to drinking while pregnant — sipping on a glass of wine while out to dinner in Buenos Aires with boyfriend Matt Bellamy, but the public outcry was similar to as if she had been doing shots at the bar. Was Kate in the wrong?
Guinness does a baby good? Gwyneth seemed to think so during her pregnancy in 2006. She was seen downing a cold one while out with hubby Chris Martin in 2006. Some defended her choice of drink with the myth that Guinness’s “high” iron content helps pregnant women.
According to Cindy Adams of the NY Post, Nicole requested a glass of white wine — which she received and drank — backstage at the 2008 Oscars. Nicole’s rep later claimed she drank nothing that night but water and ginger tea. Was Nicole the victim of the celebrity rumor mill or was her rep covering up a decision to drink in moderation while pregnant?
Nothing screams “celebrity train-wreck” like a pregnant woman checking into rehab, which Brooke did while five-months pregnant with her and Charlie Sheen’s twins. Hey, better late than never, right?
This Oscar-winning actress caused an uproar soon after giving birth to her first child in 2006 after she told fans it’s “fine” for expectant mothers to have a glass of wine after the first trimester.
After an early miscarriage scare during her fourth pregnancy in 2007, this former Atomic Kitten singer was photographed smoking a cigarette outside a pub. It was reported that she had also drank four martinis and vodka, which Kerry called “nonsense” — and then she admitted to having a drink or two.
Forbes have come up with a list of the top earning on-screen couples ever and it’s pretty much full of people who starred together in a franchise. As opposed to back in the day when Hollywood stars would star in a few movies together. Before I even read the list I knew who would be on top, take a look for yourself…
Ben Stiller and Teri Polo, $1 billion
Little Fockers might be one of the worst reviewed movies of 2010, but it is making a lot of money. So far the Meet the Parents trilogy has earned $1 billion at the box office. With those kinds of numbers, a fourth movie can’t be far behind. Expect more trouble for the young marrieds played by Stiller and Polo.
Robert Downey Jr. and Gwyneth Paltrow, $1.2 billion
We didn’t include this couple when we first did this list last year because after the first Iron Man, they still weren’t really a couple. But in the second movie, Downey’s Tony Stark admitted his feelings for Paltrow’s Pepper Potts. No word on if Paltrow will make an appearance in the upcoming film The Avengers, which will feature Iron Man, among other heroes.
Natalie Portman and Hayden Christensen, $1.5 billion
Hayden Christensen didn’t make his Star Wars debut as Anakin Skywalker until the fifth movie, Attack of the Clones. But his relationship with Natalie Portman’s Padme was crucial to the sci-fi tale as the pair ultimately became parents to Luke and Leia.
Shia LaBeouf and Megan Fox, $1.5 billion
Transformers is really all about robots that turn into cars but somewhere in the first two movies was a love story between LaBeouf’s Sam Witwicky and Fox’s Mikaela Banes. The two couldn’t have been that inseparable though because director Michael Bay decided to jettison Fox in the third movie in favor of Victoria’s Secret model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley.
Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, $1.8 billion
While romance is secondary in some of the films discussed on this list, it’s the main theme in the Twilight series about a human girl, played by Stewart, who falls for Pattinson’s sensitive vampire. There are still two films left in the successful franchise. A movie based on the first half of Breaking Dawn hits theaters this coming November.
Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet, $1.9 billion
For a film with equal parts romance and action it’s hard to do better than Titanic. The 1997 film featured a pair of doomed, class-crossed lovers set against the epic sinking of the giant cruise ship. The film is the second-highest-grossing of all time with $1.8 billion. DiCaprio and Winslet appeared together again in the much smaller film Revolutionary Road in 2008.
Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightley, $2.7 billion
Yes, the Pirates franchise is mostly about Johnny Depp staggering around like a drunk who just fell into a case of makeup. But for the first three films there was a romance that helped ground the movies. Seems like Disney and producer Jerry Bruckheimer didn’t think it was crucial to the story though. Bloom and Knightley’s characters have been written out of the fourth installment.
Viggo Mortensen and Liv Tyler, $3 billion
As Aragorn and the elf Arwen, Mortensen and Tyler play a pair of lovers struggling to maintain a relationship amid an epic quest to destroy evil. The pair helped make the fantasy films a bit more relatable for people who got confused by all the characters in Middle Earth. No word on if the pair will appear in the upcoming prequel: The Hobbit.
Rupert Grint and Emma Watson, $6.3 billion
It took seven movies but Ron and Hermione are finally acting on their long simmering love. In the most recent Harry Potter film, Rupert Grint got to do a bit of bravura acting watching his worst fears come to life, including Watson’s Hermione falling in love with Harry instead of him. Expect the pair to finally smooch in the final film hitting theaters this summer.
Gwyneth Paltrow proved her country chops at the 44th Annual CMA Awards, where she sang the title track to her new movie, ‘Country Strong.’
The Oscar-winner gave an impressive performance, strumming an acoustic guitar while Vince Gill joined on rhythm guitar and harmony.
Gwyneth initially battled nerves and some discernible technical issues with audio equipment but triumphed by mid-song, gaining better vocal ground and managing to appear a lot more confident.
In ‘Country Strong,’ Paltrow plays Kelly Canter, a living legend in the music biz who is sidelined by alcoholism. Tim McGraw plays her manager/husband, who pulls her out of rehab in an attempt to resurrect her career with a comeback tour.
