OJ Simpson and his Money

Looks lioke people are still going after OJ Simpson and his money.

Attorneys for the father of murder victim Ron Goldman subpoenaed several Hollywood industry groups on Monday, seeking money O.J. Simpson was paid for TV appearances and work in such movies as "Naked Gun 33 and 1/3" and "The Towering Inferno."

Lawyers for Fred Goldman believe that Simpson has diverted the residual payments to avoid a $33.5 million judgment won in 1997 by the families of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman.

"We're going to burrow to the center of the earth to find Simpson's assets," Goldman lawyer David Cook said. "These subpoenas today seek to uncover and unearth Simpson's catalog or portfolio of movie residuals."

The former football star turned actor and TV pitchman was acquitted of the June 12, 1994, murders but a civil court jury found him liable for their deaths and ordered him to pay the $33.5 million in damages.

Simpson has paid little of that judgment but in recent months lawyers for Goldman have aggressively pursued his film and TV earnings as well as a reported $1 million advance he was paid for an aborted book about the murders, "If I Did It."

The subpoenas demand records kept by the Screen Actors Guild (SAG), the Producers Guild of America and the American Federation of Television Radio Artists (AFTRA), which Goldman's lawyers believe will show how much Simpson has been paid and where the money has gone.

Perhaps this is all going just a little bit far? After all, he was founbd not guilty in court, was he not?

Sienna Miller

Sienna Miller tells the newspapers that "I was just faking it".

It become a Don't Look Now phenomenon on the web.

But Sienna Miller's management has injected a dose of reality into heated reports that she and her Factory Girl co-star Hayden Christensen had actual, not virtual, sex while filming a love scene for the movie, telling the New York Post: "It's not true at all."

"When you do a love scene, there are five or six people on the set at a minimum," she said.

Her management says the scene was so realistic because Sienna is "just a great actress."

Well, "great" might be stretching the language a little too far but yews, she is an acctress. Faking it is what she's (over) paid to do. Amaxzing that she actually does so, don't you think?
