Kate Holmes: In on the Celebrity Cupcake Craze (and a Pizza Pig, to Boot!)

It’s hard to believe from the looks of her bod that Katie Holmes has not only given birth, but that she frequently pigs out on cupcakes and pizza.

Interviewed on Milling About, Mrs. Tom Cruise chats about her eating habits on the set of her new flick, The Romantics, which opens today.

Curses! Despite her high-calorie diet, Katie (above with hubby Tom) look fabulous.

“I do like a good cupcake and I’m always in search of a new and better one, which I always manage to find,” Katie tells host Robin Milling.

“They’re amazing. We always have some on the set.”

“She’s got a nose for cupcakes,” adds Romantics co-star—and fellow sveltie—Malin Akerman.

Yet another cast member, Josh Duhamel, spent his free time hunting down the best local pizza, and would tote his “catch” back to the set.

“We were rehearsing one night and Continue reading

David Bowie’s Lost Interview: Ziggy Stardust Trapped in the Sky

David Bowie may be famous for the celestial explorations his Ziggy Stardust alter-ego sang about during the ‘70s, but in real life, he had little desire to be trapped in a tin bucket far above the world.

In a 1992 interview with Milling About host Robin Milling, which has never before aired anywhere, the glam-rock icon recalled a technical glitch during one of his over-the-top performances, which left him cursing (we imagine) ground control.

CAPTION: "I just wanted to play a saxophone in the Little Richard band when I was eight," David (above with Iman) said his first pop inspiration.

"I just wanted to play a saxophone in the Little Richard band when I was eight," David (above with wife of 18 years Iman) said of his first pop inspiration.

“The funniest thing that happen—and it was a bit of a nightmare—was on the first show of the Diamond Dogs tour,” said the Changes singer, chatting side by side with his Tin Machine bandmate, Tony Sales.

“I had a contraption fixed into one of the skyscrapers that was an integral part of the set that put me in front of the audience.

“It was the cherry-picker bit that is now known and loved through The [Rolling] Stones. This was 1974 and the cherry picker would place me out on a chair about 30 feet above the audience, and seven Continue reading

Miley Cyrus: Imperiled as a Babe by Dad Billy Ray, He Confesses in Lost Interview

Miley Cyrus grew up at risk from Billy Ray Cyrus‘ daredevil ways—but is none the worse for it today.

In a 2006 interview with Milling About host Robin Milling, which has never before aired anywhere, the country music powerhouse revealed how reckless he was with infant daughter Miley.

CAPTION: "I just try to be her friend, teach her to have fun and enjoy life," Billy Ray (above with Miley) said of his daughter, "because life comes at you fast and you just need to enjoy it."

Britney Spears is getting all this crap for having her baby in the front seat of the car,” he said of the infamous incident in which the pop tart was snapped by paparazzi while driving her SUV with son Sean Preston on her lap.

“Oh my goodness, if they had pictures of me—the things I did with Miley on four-wheelers and dirt bikes and horses. Without a helmet!

“Britney Spears, you have nothing to apologize about.”

The Achy Breaky Heart singer also chatted about Continue reading

Jerry O’Connell: My Private Parts Look Great in 3D!

There’s a scene in Piranha 3D that gives new meaning to the term 3D. That would be the one where star Jerry O’Connell—who plays a porn star-turned-videographer—gets his manhood chomped off by the man-eating creatures.

Then parts—let’s say three of them—of Jerry’s, ah, “D” come flying off the screen.

CAPTION: "It's really funny, actually," Jerry (above) tells us of his cinematic castration.

"It's really funny, actually," Jerry (above) says of his cinematic castration.

The real question is, How does it feel to have hundreds of moviegoers appearing to be showered in your most intimate of flesh?

“It was actually pretty fun. I’ve seen a little bit of it,” the former child star, who made his name in 1986’s Stand by Me, tells Milling About host Robin Milling.

“I shouldn’t say that. I’ve seen a large chunk of it—and it looks great!” he adds.

Jerry, who appears on Robin’s show with co-star Kelly Brook, chats about of other hazards of the flick as well.

“I think thousands and thousands of gallons of fake blood was used in making this film—more than Kill Bill. Piranha 3D has broken Continue reading

Rogert Daltrey’s Lost Interview: I’m a Boring Homebody (but a Good Dad)

Contrary to what you’d expect from those of a rocker whose pyrotechnic stage antics helped define the ‘60s, Roger Daltrey‘s kids are alright.

In a 1989 interview with host Robin Milling, which has never before aired anywhere, The Who frontman discussed his career from the New York set of The Teddy Bear Habit. (That never-released feature film, co-starring Sam Waterston and George Carlin, tells the story of a music-shop owner who helps a child break his attachment to his teddy bear.)

CAPTION: "I always knew I would make it," Roger (above) of becoming a rock star. "The human being is capable of anything he desires to do if he wants it bad enough."

"I always knew I'd make it," Roger (above) says of becoming a star. "The human being is capable of anything he desires to do if he wants it bad enough."

“It’s terrible but it’s probably true but I’m so happy being with my kids. I really do enjoy them,” Roger said when asked about becoming a dad.

“It’s wonderful to be with them in these last seven years apart from The Who. Back then, there wasn’t that much time to really enjoy them. It was always kind of a barrier.

“I’ve got a really boring rock story. I’ve been with the same woman for 22 years. I’ve got five kids, three from my present wife.”

Roger—who played the lead in the 1975 film version of The Who’s rock opera Tommy, and Continue reading

Jerry Garcia’s Lost Interview: ‘The Grateful Dead Would Love to Play on Mars’

Talk about breaking new ground! The late Jerry Garcia—who would have turned 68 years old this Sunday, Aug. 1—had sky-high hopes for his famously peripatetic band, the Grateful Dead.

In a 1990 interview with Milling About host Robin Milling, which has never before aired anywhere, the legendary rocker discussed his health, drug problem, family and aspirations for The Dead.

CAPTION: "So you've had a problem with drugs? Who hasn't?" Jerry (above) told our host vis-à-vis his own substance-abuse struggles.

"So I've had a problem with drugs? Who hasn't?" Jerry (above) told our host.

“I’ve never had a heart attack. Let me clear that up right now. But I have been ill and was on drugs, yeah,” said the Casey Jones singer, who died of a heart attack on Aug. 9, 1995 at Serenity Knolls, a substance-abuse treatment center in Forest Knolls, Calif.

“But those things are kind of normal nowadays, a lot of people went through those things. They don’t represent good excuses as far as I’m concerned.”

Jerry went on to talk about what inspired him to try and clean up his act.

“I think the idea that, well, it looks like I’m going to live past 40 and Continue reading

Wilmer Valderrama on Ex-Lady Love Lindsay Lohan: ‘I Adore Her to Death’

Wilmer Valderrama stands by his gals—even the one he cut loose six years ago, who has since amounted to little more than a series of train wrecks.

Interviewed on Milling About, the That ‘70s Show star opens up about former flame Lindsay Lohan, who’s currently serving 13 days in L.A. County Jail for violating the terms of her probation from a DUI bust.

"I just hope that she gets through it," Wilmer (above) tells us of Lindsay's stretch in the slammer.

“She’s a very talented girl and I adore her to death,” Wilmer tells host Robin Milling.

“I love her to death. I love her. I love Lindsay very much and I know she’ll be OK at the end. But out of respect to her privacy, I definitely won’t comment further on any of her situation.”

Then, however, he does go on, saying: “This is something very personal that she’s dealing with and it’s kind of unfair that she has to deal with it so publicly.”

The actor beloved by millions as Fez—his geeky ’70s Show character—also reflects on turning the big 3-0. Continue reading

Kevin Kline: His Humiliating Run-in with Pal Jeremy Irons

We all know times are hard—but not so hard that an Academy Award winner’s reduced to driving a dilapidated Buick around the Big Apple.

Now if only Kevin Kline can convince his equally famous friend of that.

Kevin (left) to Jeremy (right): First "impressions" aren't everything.

Interviewed on Milling About, Kevin, who snagged an Oscar for his role in 1989’s A Fish Called Wanda, chats about his latest flick, The Extra Man.

Co-starring John C. Reilly, Katie Holmes and Paul Dano, the low-budget comedy shot on location in Manhattan tells the story of Kevin’s Henry Harrison, an impoverished but brilliant playwright who makes ends meet by working as an escort for wealthy widows.

“When you’re shooting on the streets of New York—if you’re doing a driving scene, for instance—you usually have a police escort, which is this car in front of you,” he tells host Robin Milling.

“We couldn’t afford that, so it was just get out there, and we stuck a camera in the front of the car.

“I was meant to be driving at a very high speed so Paul Dano’s character could say, ‘Will you slow down? We don’t even have seat belts, good lord!'” Kevin, who has also won two Tony Awards, continues.

“So I’m trying to drive and create the illusion with the camera that I’m driving quickly and recklessly. The traffic was going about five miles an hour so there was a lot of weaving and the poor cameraman thought, We’re all gonna die! That was sort of fun.

CAPTION: "I could've been a stunt driver, but I got distracted by acting," Kevin, above with his sorry "Man" ride, tells us.

"I could've been a stunt driver, but I got distracted by acting," Kevin, above with his sorry 1974 Electra in "Extra Man," tells us.

“Actually, during that scene,” Kevin adds, “I ran into a friend on the street.

“We were at a full stop while we were reloading [the camera] and Jeremy Irons, who’s doing a play [Impressionism, on Broadway] was crossing the street.

“So I was like, ‘Hello, Jeremy. Oh, gotta go!’

“I think he saw that there was a camera in the back seat, or else he thought I had really fallen on hard times—because the car that my character drives was a jalopy!”
