Newsmakers: Clive Owen, Keith Urban, Nicole Kidman, Rosie O'Donnell, Donald Trump, P. Diddy, Arnold Schwarzenegger

Owen stars in "children of Men," a futuristic thriller about saving the only pregnant woman in a society thought to be entirely sterile. He chatted with Nicki Gostin.

I think it's full of humanity. [Director Alfonso] Cuaron has made a film set in the future that's really an excuse to talk about things going on right now.


I was never offered that part. I promise.

[ Laughs ] I always do that.

She walked into the read-through and I knew straightaway.

It was a little bit Woody Allen-like. She had little Lennon glasses on and all these secondhand books dropping all over the place.

I know. The exchange rate--my God.


But I get paid in dollars and live in London. I don't get paid in pounds.

She called him a "snake-oil salesman" and a "pimp." He called her a "fat slob" and a "mental midget." Are they too shy to admit they're in love?

Macy's pulled his faux-fur hooded jackets because they're made with real Asian "raccoon dogs." Maybe he can regift them next year.

Broke his leg skiing in Idaho --shame on you, governor. The upside: mended with screws and cables, so now he can pump iron just by walking.
