enough with the hubbub, let's let the retrospective gossip begin.
on this day in 2001 people were whispering that:
julia roberts was going to wed benjamin bratt. only five months later, they actually split up, sans nuptials. it's all good, though. they're both married with children now.
johnny depp would take the part of chuck barris, originally intended for mike myers, in confessions of a dangerous mind. the film was to be directed by bryan singer. the role eventually went to sam rockwell and served as george clooney's directorial debut.
tom cruise's cousin, william mapother, would be the next thing. have you heard of him? neither has britpoppa.
russell crowe was gettin' jiggy with courtney love. the two spent the night together after the golden globes. these days, you couldn't get an a-list actor to touch courtney with a ten foot pole.
anthony edwards was going to leave "er". unfortunately for this top gun star, his post-emergency room career turned out to be more julianna marguiles than george clooney.
