While you were working ...

Today's news you might've missed:

  • Lindsay Lohan likely knew that she'd have to show some skin in Bret Easton Ellis' upcoming "The Canyons" - hint "A" was that her leading man is most famous for porn; and hint "B" was that explicit sex scenes are expected - but when it came time to go topless for one such sexy scene, the 26-year-old reportedly grew uncomfortable. We know, we know - isn't this the same actress who just did Playboy? Regardless, she had a smart solution: Make the camera crew drop trou and work in their boxers. [TMZ]
  • Star-gazers have been closely watching Taylor Swift's love life as speculation escalates that the highly compensated country star is dating a Kennedy - Conor Kennedy, the grandson of Robert F. Kennedy, to be exact. If true, we gotta warn you, Conor - winding up in a song's lyrics won't be as cool as it sounds. [GossipCop]
  • Speaking of dating, Katie Couric's maybe/possibly also seeing someone new: The news personality is rumored to be smitten with John Molner, head of mergers and acquisitions at New York's Brown Brothers Harriman. [Page Six]
  • Tom Cruise aimed for the stars and scooped up 6-year-old daughter Suri Cruise for an excursion to Disney World on Monday. (To a 6-year-old, even a famous, uber-wealthy, heels-wearing 6-year-old, Disney World really is the greatest place on earth.) The most adorable part? Suri was dressed as Ariel from "The Little Mermaid." [E!]
  • And because you know we love you, here's some of the latest on Stew Scandal. Everyone armed with salt shakers? Then on to the links::
  • Director Rupert Sanders was seen wearing his wedding ring while out and about [TMZ];
  • Sanders' purported brother-in-law has supposedly said that the "affair" went on "for months" [Marie Claire U.K.];
  • A "Welcome to the Rileys" producer is protesting reports that the Stewart/Sanders whatever-it-was had a sexual aspect [San Francisco Chronicle];
  • And, most heartbreaking of all (for us, anyway) is the rumor that the two "Twilight" stars are at odds over who will get to keep their adorable puppy, Bear. [NYDN]
