Spanish actress Penelope Cruz shame-face

Spanish actress Penelope Cruz was left shame-faced as she walked down a red carpet in a scarlet suit and blamed losing her luggage on a flight to London for the fashion faux pas.

The British capital from Madrid to attend a glamorous event at the city’s Somerset House with her ‘Broken Embraces’ director, Pedro Almodovar.

But when she arrived there, the actress was forced to wear a red suit that she had kept in her hand luggage, instead of the customary full-length gown.

But filmmaker Almodovar was sure a conspiracy was at work, and was convinced an avid fan was behind Cruz’s missing possessions.

Broken Embraces is Pedro Almodovar's first film since his 2006 hit Volver and stars Academy Award winner Cruz, marking their fourth collaboration together.

Philippine President Corazon expier colon cancer

Former Philippine President Corazon Aquino, whose "People Power" movement pushed out longtime strongman Ferdinand Marcos less than three years after her husband's assassination, has died at age 76, her family announced Saturday.

Bishop Gabby Reyes blesses the casket of former Philippine president Corazon Aquino at her wake in Manila.

Thousands of mourners paid their final respects to former Philippine President Corazon Aquino on Sunday, lining up to file past her coffin in silent tribute to the "People Power" democracy leader.
Aquino, who died at the age of 76 on Saturday after a long battle with colon cancer, led millions of Filipinos in protests against dictator Ferdinand Marcos in a popular revolt in 1986, before taking over as president.
World figures led by US President Barack Obama paid tribute to Aquino as "an inspiration", while President Gloria Arroyo declared 10 days of mourning for the woman she described as a "national treasure".

Until March last year, when she withdrew from public life after being diagnosed with colon cancer, she had been active in street protests denouncing government corruption.

Seth Rogen says Megan Fox once gave him the kiss off.
On Thursday's Jimmy Kimmel Live!, he recalled how they both appeared on the ABC late night show two years ago, and he was immediately struck when the Transformers stunner walked into his dressing room.

When she came out, adhering to proper male guest protocol, Rogen attempted to plant a kiss on Fox (the cheek), which is when all humiliating hell broke loose.
"I'm thinking, 'When in my life am I ever gonna get to kiss this woman?
