Snooki: I'm not like Lindsay Lohan

Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi didn't dispute Judge Damian G. Murray's claims that she's  "rude, profane, obnoxious, and self-indulgent" when she spoke with People magazine, but she did beg to differ on that Lindsay Lohan comparison.

The 22-year-old "Jersey Shore" star - who pleaded guilty in court Wednesday to annoying Seaside Heights, New Jersey, beachgoers with her drunken hijinks - said she took offense to Judge Murray referring to her as a "Lindsay Lohan wannabe."

"I never drank and drove, I don't do drugs – I do nothing that Lindsay does, so it was definitely a little overboard," said the pint-sized Polizzi, who was fined $500 and ordered to perform community service because of her July 30 public intoxication arrest. (She already received credit for caring for zoo animals last Sunday.)

James Franco: I just play gay

Sure he’s played a few gay characters, but don’t get it twisted: James Franco says he’s straight, and if he wasn’t he’d admit it.

“Everyone thinks I’m a stoner, and some people think I’m gay because I’ve played these gay roles,” Franco told The Advocate. "That’s what people think, but it’s not true. I don’t smoke pot. I’m not gay…”

The actor sat down with the publication for an interview appearing in the October issue to discuss his role as iconic gay poet Allen Ginsberg in the soon-to-be-released biopic “Howl.”

Meghan McCain slams Bristol Palin on 'Daily Show'

The business of politics got a little dirty on "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" Thursday night.

Meghan McCain (yes, daughter of Arizona Senator John McCain) joined Stewart last night to chat about her book, "Dirty Sexy Politics," and the conversation soon veered into Palin territory.

The book, Stewart pointed out, "is a view of the campaign trail that’s very personal" - almost like he was reading someone's diary, he said.

Maura Tierney opens up on fighting breast cancer

Playing a doctor on "ER" for a decade did little to prepare Maura Tierney for coping with her own real-life health scare: finding a lump on her breast.

"I was so, so scared of going to the doctor," Tierney, 45, admits in the new issue of Parade magazine. "I felt something, and my boyfriend at the time made me go. He said, 'You've got to take care of this,' because I was afraid. That's one thing I will say: Don't be afraid to go to the damn doctor. Just go!"

After being diagnosed with breast cancer in 2009 and backing out of her role in the NBC show "Parenthood," Tierney refused to throw herself a pity party.

Carey Mulligan: I'm not famous enough for 'Glee'

Carey Mulligan: I'm not famous enough for 'Glee'

Carey Mulligan certainly made critics sit up and take notice of her with “An Education” – the 25-year-old actress was nominated for an Academy Award for her lead role in the 2009 film – but she thinks she still doesn’t have quite the star power yet to be on one of television’s hottest shows.

“I want to be in ‘Glee,’” the actress explained to Vogue magazine for their October issue, “but I’m told I’m not famous enough to be a cameo yet.”

But Mulligan doesn’t appear to be after the glitz and glamour that life as a young Hollywood actress can offer, anyway. She sticks to mass retailers like Urban Outfitters in her day-to-day life coupled with understated jewelry, and she’s also uninterested in trying to meet the industry’s rigid aesthetic demands.
