Regis: “These shots are for the British market. The U.S. still doesn’t know who she is. A lot of British people have a hard time being famous in America, but that’s part of why she's happy here. She loves it for her kids, she loves the shopping, she loves the lifestyle, and she loves that people leave her alone. We have hidden cameras, so we know that she is a real mother who takes care of her kids, and that she behaves exactly the same way inside her house! You see real mothers, and you see the ones who just fake it for the camera. Anna Nicole Smith, I photographed her a couple of times with that poor kid. That was a little bit sad. Demi Moore was quite a good mother at one time in her life, until that got a bit boring for her."
Nicole Kidman—Clothing Store in Brentwood

Brandy: “This is what Nicole Kidman looks like without someone at her house doing hair and make-up for an hour. This is the unglamorous Nicole. Her hair looks really, really gray. Her eyebrows are too dark. She really does have a unpleasant, grandmother-ish look. The conservative sweater. She seems like an ice queen.
“I think it’s strange that she is about to enter into a marriage with someone who is in the throes of a significant addiction for which he has to go to rehab. When she was announcing the end of her marriage to Tom Cruise, I felt sympathetic to her. Her husband was weird, he was heavy into Scientology, he was probably ending his marriage because he was secretly gay. Now I’m almost on Tom’s side. The guy’s got some weird quirks, but he seems happy. He is with his kids all the time, and he seems affectionate. I wonder now what it was like for him being married to her. I think this picture supports my revised theory.”
Regis: “Nicole Kidman comes from a very conservative family. She had a period from 18 to 23 where she rebelled, and then she started to become even more strict and conservative than her parents. That’s why people dislike her. She seems very stiff and conventional. Maybe she is bitter because of what happened with Tom. The fact that they were together for so long and she couldn’t have kids. One of the earliest movies she did was about a woman who couldn’t have kids. It is very touching to see that movie now. It’s her life.”
Courtney Love—Doctor's Office in Beverly Hills

Brandy: “She doesn’t look like Courtney Love anymore. In this shot, she is coming out of a medical building. She had a cigarette the moment she walked out the door. The photographers said that she looked wasted, but maybe she had some nitrous at the doctor’s office. She was with a friend, and it looked like they never went to sleep and showed up at the doctor wearing the same clothes from the night before”
Regis: “Courtney looks like this because she stopped drinking and took a lot of diet pills. The better she gets inside, the worse she looks outside. Now her daughter Francis Bean is being photographed at the shows and premieres. She always looks uncomfortable. She will lose some baby weight a little bit later exactly like Demi Moore’s daughter, Rumer Willis.”
Vanessa Hudgins Gets Flowers From the Paps
Return to beginning
Regis: "We like Vanessa Hudgins. She is kind of witty, she is smart. What was striking with Britney and Lindsay was how much energy they had when they were young. How fast and quick they were. Now we like Vanessa Hudgins, Miley Cyrus, and Ashley Tisdale. You can see the energy that they have and how badly they want to be big stars. They have the will and the confidence to do it. They are the ones that we are waiting for."
