DREW BARRYMORE'S BAD PARENTS INFLUENCED HER TO BE A BETTER MOM
Drew Barrymore's absentee parents inspired her to be a better mother to her kids. The Blended star appears in the February issue of More magazine where she reveals how her rough childhood helped her in the long run.

She explains, "I didn't really have parents, you know? And therefore the kind of parent I will be is a good, present parent. In a way, maybe that was a detriment to my youth, but it'll be the biggest asset to my adulthood."

  • Drew is mom to two-year-old Olive and nine-month-old Frankie.
  • She is estranged from her mother, Jaid Barrymore, and her father John passed away in 2004 from cancer.

Kim said, "I will say that I think Bruce should tell his story his way...I think everyone goes through things in life and I think that story and what Bruce is going through, I think he'll share whenever the time is right." She continued, "I think Bruce is very happy, the happiest I've ever seen him...He's our dad so we support him no matter what, and I think when the time is right, he'll talk about whatever he wants to talk about. I guess I'll kind of let everyone be curious and I feel like that's his journey to talk about."

  • Kris Jenner previously discussed her ex's changes on the Today show back in October saying, "It's silly. They've been saying that since the '70s."
  • There are unconfirmed rumors that Bruce plans to open up in the new season of Keeping Up With the Kardashians.

PAMELA ANDERSON DOESN'T THINK SHE HAS THE LOOKS TO MODEL
Pamela Anderson rose to fame as a blonde bombshell on Baywatch but she claims she never thought she had the looks to model. The 47-year-old appears in the new issue of Parade talking about her new contract with an agency and embracing her age.

Pamela tells the magazine, "I've just signed with Next Modeling agency for commercials and appearances. That is funny. I've never felt pretty enough to be a model. I think I've provoked feelings with how I look. But not as a beauty, but as a mischievous little rascal!" She goes on to discuss the aging process saying, "I don't really feel like I want to chase youth. I want to get old. I want to experience all the seasons of my life. I just don't want to be afraid of it. And I think in this industry you're surrounded by a lot of fear of getting older and fear of your looks leaving you. And I thought well, I'm lucky then because I never really felt that great looking. I felt like I had fun. I felt like I could be sexy. I could be provocative and I could use my image to get attention for things that I cared about."

  • Despite only recently scoring a modeling contract, Pam has been on the cover of Playboy more than any other woman.

CELEBRITY GOSSIP
KEIRA KNIGHTLEY SAYS HER NAME WAS A MISTAKE: Keira Knightley has revealed that her name was actually a spelling error made by her mother. She explains in the new issue of Elle, "I was meant to be named ‘Kiera', after a Russian ice skater who was on the TV one day. My dad fancied her and nicked her name for me. But it was my mum who went to register my birth, and she accidentally spelled 'ei' instead of 'ie' because my mum's crap at spelling. Apparently, when she came back, he said: 'WHAT THE F***? You've spelt her name wrong!' What were they going to do, though? Once it's on the piece of paper, it's on the piece of paper. And that's me. A spelling error."

CARA DELEVINGNE CAUSES BACKLASH OVER LION CUB PHOTOS: Cara Delevingne has caused a bit of a stir for doing a photo shoot for watch brand Tag Heuer while holding a lion cub. Wildlife expert Dr Neil D'Cruze said in a statement, "Lion cubs are not photo props. Their health and well-being should not be compromised. They belong in the wild, not draped over a celebrity just to sell a designer watch. Our concern is that such high profile adverts will legitimize these cruel encounters with wild animals. I am sure that both advertisers and consumers alike would think twice about the commercial use of wild animals if they were aware of the suffering involved behind the scenes." The charity World Animal Protection also complained about the shoot saying, "The images support an industry that relies on animal cruelty."

REBEL WILSON EXPLAINS WHY SHE MAKES A JOKE OUT OF HER WEIGHT
Rebel Wilson has no problem poking fun at her weight as a joke. The actress known for playing "Fat Amy" in Pitch Perfect recently discussed her decision to take on the role with Australia's Daily Life and revealed why she thinks bigger girls do better at comedy in general.

The 28-year-old said, "I took something that was seen as a disadvantage -- no one thinks, if you're fat, that you're going to be an actress and everyone's going to love you -- and turned it into a positive. One time I got X-rayed by a chiropractor and he goes, 'You know, you don't actually have a big build. It's like, 'You're just fat!'" Rebel added, "I do have these dreams, like, 'What if I just went to a health farm and lost 50 kilos? What would happen? Would it affect my career?' But then I think, that's never going to happen."

  • She also explained why she thinks bigger girls are better at comedy saying, "I don't know why. Maybe because people find it easier to laugh. It's very hard to laugh at someone who's very attractive, I think. And normally those people don't have a great personality anyway."
  • Rebel was briefly under contract as a spokesperson for Jenny Craig and lost 30 lbs but quit because movie commitments prevented her from changing her physical appearance.
