Barenaked Ladies: Sienna Miller and Keira Knightley

  • Sienna Miller has won damages against The Sun and News of the World for publishing nude photos of her taken on the set of Hippie Hippie Shake.(BBC)
  • Meanwhile, you don’t have to skulk around film sets hoping for a glimpse of Keira Knightley‘s lovely bones. You just have to visit your local supermarket checkout line (again).(The Sun)
  • Young’uns Emma Watson and Lily Allen “out-glammed” Naomi Campbell at last night’s Chanel afterparty. Hell, if I received $240,000 basically just for showing up (in Lily’s case), I’d look pretty glam, too.
  • Prince William and Kate Middleton are learning pairs ice skating.(The Sun)
  • Gavin Henson, boyfriend of Charlotte Church, broke his hand after “allegedly punching a pal during a drinking game.”(The Sun)
  • Jane Seymour has finally admitted defeat and sold her house in Bath after neighbors took her to court over loud, late night parties.(Daily Mail)
  • Rupert Everett is moaning again about how coming out wrecked his career: “It’s not ideal to be homosexual in my business. For instance, I’m every bit as good as Hugh Grant, and I can do the same sort of thing, but look at the roles he gets.”(Mirror)
  • David Beckham and a very fearsome-looking snake pose in a Motorola ad.(Mirror)
  • Here’s Barbara Walters‘ interview with the Beckhams from last night’s 10 Most Fascinating People of 2007 special. J.K. Rowling was No. 1.(Just Jared)

Kevin Wicks founded BBCAmerica.com's Anglophenia blog back in 2005 and has been translating British culture for an American audience ever since. While not British himself - he was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri - he once received inordinate hospitality in London for sharing the name of a dead but beloved EastEnders character. His Anglophilia stems from a high school love of Morrissey, whom he calls his "gateway drug" into British culture.
