The new Nancy Drew loves the catty catwalk show "America's Next Top Model" and had her recent Sweet 16 bash at a Sunset Boulevard hot spot where Lindsay Lohan has partied. Well, not really Nancy.

Christian Bale's break between "Batman" movies is no vacation. For his new film "Rescue Dawn," Bale shed dozens of pounds, trudged barefoot through wild forests, ate worms and plucked leeches from his body, all to portray an escaped P.O.W. on the run. But the director, Werner Herzog, had made clear exactly what Bale was getting into, and the actor cheerfully accepted the challenge.   CHRISTIAN BALE - Christian Bale stars in the action/thriller 'Rescue Dawn.'

LOS ANGELES - The hardware store turned out to be a hotspot in 20th century art history. Marcel Duchamp walked into one in 1915, picked out a shovel and gave it a title, "In Advance of the Broken Arm." It became one of his early "readymades" - a work of art simply because Duchamp decided it should be one. Needless to say, this gesture challenged most established notions of the work of art and has ... [full story]

There isn't a smokestack or grimy street to be found anywhere in the art of the Pre-Raphaelites, even if the England of their time had plenty of both. It may have been the most industrialized nation on Earth in the mid-19th century, but in the paintings of this group of artists, the landscapes are picturesque, thick with flowers and quaint architecture, people sport medieval clothing, and striking women with slender necks, long locks and flowing ...

It's possible that Derek Trucks, who turned 28 on June 8, is not the most talented, resourceful and rewarding electric guitarist of his generation.

LOS ANGELES - It was full-blast Bob-o-mania. Frat boys, grannies and groupies - wearing T-shirts emblazoned with come-ons like "I Got My Dog Buddy Neutered" and "I TiVo U Everyday" - had camped on a sidewalk for up to 33 hours to hear their white-haired idol exclaim, "The actual retail price is ... !"   BOB BARKER - Things got a little giddy as Bob Barker presided over his 6,500-plus episode of 'The Price Is Right.' ...
