No wonder Lindsay Lohan is having trouble keeping herself going on set during the day – she's getting her skin inked up in the middle of the night!

The ever-dedicated nightcrawler and her new beau got themselves tattoos at an L.A. parlor during a 3 a.m. visit last week.

The world's hardest-partying starlet, who was just hospitalized for being "overheated and dehydrated" on the set of her upcoming film "Georgia Rule," had a "tiny white heart" inscribed between her thumb and index finger on her left hand, according to Page Six, by the artists at the famed Shamrock Social Club on Sunset Boulevard. Her new boyfriend Harry Morton got himself a cross tattoo, though the location was unspecified by a parlor employee.

Lohan's latest dermatologic art installation is her fourth: She's got "Breathe" tattooed on her right wrist, a small star inside her left wrist, and, fittingly enough, the phrase "La Bella Vita" written on her lower back.

Justin's Got Lance's Back

The alpha male of boyband 'N Sync, Justin Timberlake, tells People magazine that he supports his former bandmate and friend Lance Bass, who recently revealed to the world that he's gay. "Lance is one of my great friends," Timberlake said in a statement from rep Ken Sunshine. "I support him and wish him all the happiness in the world."

Joey Fatone, another of Bass' former bandmates, tells People that he's also supportive of Lance and that the admission was a long time coming. "He took years to really think about how he was going to tell everyone."

Bass has said that he was worried about his admission because "I knew that if I ever acted on it or even said (that I was gay), it would overpower everything."

Will Ferrell Praises Ali G's "Soft, Supple Lips"

Not that you can take either of their words for it, but Will Ferrell and Sasha Baron "Ali G" Cohen have very different views on their on-screen kiss from the upcoming "Talladega Nights."

Ferrell, who's married with a kid, tells Rush and Molloy that the liplock with the British comic (who also plays Borat and the very gay fashionista Bruno) was "one of the finest experiences of my life" and that Cohen has "extremely soft, supple lips." Not so, says Cohen, who complains (facetiously, we assume) of Ferrell's "terrible breath" and his drunken, predatory ways: "Will got drunk one night and showed up at my hotel room at 3 a.m., urging me, 'Let's rehearse our kissing scene.' He's quite a strong man, and he overpowered me, but I'm not going to go into details."

The Nascar-themed "Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby" opens nationwide August 4.

Carmen and Jamie: Not An Item

Carmen Electra wants to set the record straight: Not only was she not hanging out and looking very friendly with "Miami Vice" star Jamie Foxx last Saturday, she was actually at home watching TV with husband Dave Navarro, from whom she recently separated.

Several sources suggested that Electra and Foxx got cozy at LA nightclub Element last Saturday, but according to People, Electra denies that she was even there. "Dave thinks it's funny, but I'm upset because there's not one ounce of truth (to it)." The couple, though officially separated, still live in the same house.

"Aquaman": Life Imitates Art Imitates Life

If you thought the whole "Aquaman" situation couldn't get any more meta than it already has, think again: The Los Angeles Times reports that the project, which actually began life as a plot point in the HBO series "Entourage," might in fact become a real film project for Warner Bros. And the weirdest part of all is that Ari Emanuel, the Endeavor partner on whom the character Ari Gold is based, is at the center of the heretofore-informal talks about the project.

Warner Bros. says officially that it's not developing the hydrophilic superhero -- played by Adrian Grenier (or, rather Vincent Chase) in the show -- for the big screen. But the Times' sources say that talks have already ensued about the character's film rights, which are held by DC Comics, part of Time Warner. And McG – director of "Charlie's Angels" – has emerged as a candidate to direct.

Regardless of what happens, "Entourage" creator Doug Ellin is tickled sea-foam green by all the speculation: "It's obviously very flattering," says Ellin. "We sort of made an 'Aquaman' movie a believable possibility."

Goodie Bag: Gwyneth Coming Back Stateside, ABC Cancels "The One"

Gwyneth Paltrow is buying property in the Hamptons, signaling that she may in fact come back to our shores, at least for the summer reports the New York Post's Braden Keil. The Oscar darling has been quoted as saying that she thinks that Brits are "more intelligent and civilized," but Paltrow and family are in the process of buying a five-bed home with high-hedges, ocean views, a pool, and guest quarters. . .ABC's much-hyped reality series "The One" is done, just a week after it debuted to dismal numbers. The July 18 premiere of the "American Idol" clone was the lowest rated debut for a reality show in the 18-49 adults demographic in modern TV history.
