Colin Farrell, Elizabeth Taylor
If you thought Colin Farrell and Britney Spears made a strange couple, wait until you hear this.
The actor opened up to Ellen DeGeneres on her show Monday about his "romantic relationship" with none other than Elizabeth Taylor.
Farrell met the legendary actress at Cedars Sinai Hospital in 2009, when he was there for the birth of his son Henry and she for getting a stent put in her heart.
"I said, 'Will you tell her I said hello? She probably won't know who I am,'" he said of running into her manager Tim Mendelsohn. "And they go, 'No, she knows who you are.' And I went, 'Wow, cool. Well, tell her I said hello and I wish her the best,' and they said, 'Will do.'"
Unable to shake Taylor from his mind, Farrell had his publicist send her flowers only to find out that Taylor shared a similar idea and sent him an orchid with a handwritten note.

If Ireland could choose a poster boy or goodwill ambassador, we would nominate Conan O'Brien. He's got the trademark Irish red hair, blue eyes, freckles and dazzling wit. He also proved he can hold his own making and imbibing Irish cocktails when he raised a glass with Martha Stewart last St. Patrick's Day. Sláinte!

The last film that Heath Ledger was working on before his death, The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, is back in production in Vancouver, according to the Reporter. Director Terry Gilliam and producers halted production when Ledger died Jan. 22. Now that the film's back in action, producers have also explained how Ledger's part will be handled, following the addition of three new actors. In a statement, they said, "Since the format of the story allows for the preservation of his entire performance, at no point will Heath's work be modified or altered through the use of digital technology. Each of the parts played by Johnny [Depp], Colin [Farrell] and Jude [Law] is representative of the many aspects of the character that Heath was playing."

According to Aint It Cool News, Ledgers role in the film will now be played by not one but three alternating replacements: Johnny Depp, Colin Farrell and Jude Law.Not much is known about the plot of the film, but Ledgers character has been described as a man in love with a young woman whose soul has been sold to the devil by her father, the traveling showman of the title, in exchange for eternal youth. No word yet on how the rather extreme differences in the four actors looks will be explained.If any one could pu...
