Rosie O'Donnell rethinks Trump Tower stay

Donald Trump may be known for his wheeling and dealing but he couldn't make the sale for Rosie O’Donnell.

Although O'Donnell announced recently that she was set to stay at the Trump International Hotel and Tower Chicago as she tapes her new show on Oprah Winfrey's OWN network, the 49-year-old has since reconsidered.

"She is not going to be living or renting a Donald Trump apartment and is still looking at real estate options," a rep for O'Donnell told the Advocate earlier this week.

The 21-year-old actress and star of the "Twilight: Saga" franchise told Entertainment Weekly that the oh-so-buzzed about "Breaking Dawn" birth scene isn’t as gruesome as she would have hoped.

Jeremy Renner to play movie icon Steve McQueen

He starred in "The Hurt Locker" and will appear in "Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol," but now Jeremy Renner is about to play the ultimate rugged leading man in a new biopic about screen legend Steve McQueen.

Renner's recently formed production company, The Combine, is developing the project, which is based on the books "Portrait of an American Rebel" and "The Life and Legend of a Hollywood Icon," according to the Hollywood Reporter.

As McQueen fans know, the tough-guy actor was a troubled youth who spent time in reform schools before turning his life around and carving out a successful movie career, appearing in such classics as "Bullitt" and "The Thomas Crown Affair," and earning an Oscar nomination and two Golden Globe Henrietta Awards. The thrice-married actor died from mesothelioma in 1980 at age 50.

A release date for the McQueen biopic has yet to be announced.
