This Week's Biggest Losers 10/07/06

10/7/2006 7:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

In the new movie "The Departed," Jack Nicholson's character, Frank Costello, at one point says, "We're all [on our way out]. Act accordingly." Here are a few celebs who, depending on your point of view, may or may not be adhering to that philosophy.

Jennifer AnistonJennifer Aniston: While Brad Pitt was going on this week about his desire to add six more kids to the Brangelina "soccer team," and Vince Vaughn was in London for the shoot of "Fred Claus" and an appearance this Sunday in the 24-Hour Plays Gala at Kevin Spacey's Old Vic Theater, plain-old-Jen-again was likely crying in her Chamomile tea. In inheriting the paparazzi J-glare from previous recipients J. Lo and J. Ro (Julia Roberts), the 37-year-old L.A. native is now left to ponder, once again, the ability of the media fishbowl to scare away the best-looking fish in the sea. Short of dating a paparazzi or stealing Sean Penn away from Robin Wright, Aniston is left with no choice but to put that biological clock on snooze. Again.


Larry KingLarry King: The week began with Yom Kippur, the High Holy Day during which those of the Jewish faith atone for their sins. The week ended with Mel Gibson solidifying his first post-DUI TV interview, part two of his personal apocalypto PR recovery plan. Only it's not going to be on CNN. In losing the celebrity atonement chat of the year (if not the decade) to cross-town rival Diane Sawyer (it will air in two parts next Thursday and Friday on ABC), King surely ran up and down the Yiddish swear word lexicon. Mel's culpa is this talk show host's Challah and butter, so you can bet those responsible are going to an extra dose of suspender lashes.

Timothy Hutton and Dana DelanyTimothy Hutton, Dana Delany: What happens to a show that is half the equal of "24?" It stops cold at 13. NBC's serial drama "Kidnapped," so heavily hyped coming into the fall TV season, will be relegated to Saturday nights in a couple of weekends, right around the time it wraps the shooting of its 13th and final episode. It's a humbling small screen experience for Oscar winner Hutton and episode right out of Bizarro World for two-time Emmy winner Delany. This week's Season Three debut of Sci Fi Channel's "Battlestar Galactica" -- a show Delany guested on last winter -- got the better, dramatic reviews.

Janet JacksonJanet Jackson: The reviews for her new album have been just plain "Nasty," leading us to wonder if instead of "20 Y.O" she should have called it "40 K.O" (Jackson turned 40 earlier this year). It's not so much that her "Oprah" abetted return came in second in sales this week to Ludacris' "Release Therapy." Rather, it's that -- in a desperate cry for PR help -- JJ's folks had the nerve to start banging the drum about some sort of vague, future awards show reunion appearance with Justin Timberlake. Let's face it; Jackson missed her best chance at a sure-footed return when she failed to turn her dramatic weight loss into a program on Showtime called "Fat Singer."

George MichaelGeorge Michael: In light of the fact that the Artist Formerly Known as Together has dozed off in the driver's seat not once, not twice but three times in the past eight months, there's really only one thing left to do. Go country. George could pitch himself to the nine-time Grammy Award winning Texas Swing band Asleep at the Wheel as a sit-in singer on their next tour. Or, he could simply accept the fact that his life is a country and western song and start putting his gold leafed pen to paper. Starting maybe with "Unhappy Meal," a ditty based on his latest post-incident, wee morning hours McDonalds visit with partner Kenny Goss.

Jennifer is definitely the winner here. Vince was not a match for her and I doubt if she is crying in her tea. She moves forward very well...this was just a mistep in her life.

Jen should just give it up. She's no great actress. Brad's no great loss either. Anyone who leaves his wife for another woman is only asking for it later on.

I guess I would say......who cares? They're all just a trash truck full of Hollywierd a**holes, high school dropouts, arrogant, self-absorbed nitwits who have never had an original thought. Why people can get SO wrapped up in every tiny aspect of their daily lives is beyond me. I guess it's indicative of the sort of people who follow this sort of crap - no life of their own and trying desparately yo live vicariously, through these celeb-o-twits.

I don't know what the network was thinking with Kidnapped. Why would I watch a show that is preys upon every parents' worst fear? If I want to be horrified and depressed, I can just watch the news, and at least be educated at the same time.
New ideas for next season: Bound, Raped, and Thrown into an Underground Prison!
I like Hutton and Delaney, but how about some entertainment that actually makes you feel good?

Vince was not good enough for her. Funny guys are funny, sure and can get you through some rough patches, but really, this guy would not have produced good looking kids. Brad would have, but he is a dipstick, seriously. I can't wait until Angelina cheats on him. Now THAT will be fund to read!

Carry on Jen!

Brad can add all the kids he wants, however I don't agree with the idea of taking children away from their society and ethnic backgrounds. Especially when the new society that they are in, does not allow them to be free. This is truly sad, and I question if their lives will be better? I also don’t agree with the idea that Brad and Angelina are setting the standard of what should be politically correct. After all, they are just actors, and if you think about it, all of this could simply be an act. Hmmm…
In my opinion, money and power isn’t everything, especially since these things only bring superficial short term happiness. However, being poor doesn’t necessarily mean that they are unhappy. Since the majority of these people are in the same situation, they are not discriminated against or looked down upon. These people have strong family unity and culture. Something that Brad an Angelina don’t have. I think that they should give to the poor, and leave it at that, till they are properly married.
Concerning Jennifer Aniston, well it isn’t over till the fat lady sings! Jennifer isn’t fat or old. People don’t just love her because of her her looks, that would be so superficial. I don’t think that even Brad married her just for her looks and acting abilities. People love her because she has persona and charisma. She can make you laugh when you are tired from a hard days work. She’s sweet and she has a great smile. And you know what they say, when you smile, the whole world smiles back at you! You see, even when Jennifer retires, people will still love her because, in a way, we are indebted to her for all the years of making us laugh. I even think that she can be compared to Lou. Ball. Whose shows are even watched today, and for many years to come! Thanks Jen for being a great actress and a friend to the world!

Wishing everyone health and true happiness, a friend from Karpathos, Greece!

Janet's been around for 20 years. If she's still selling albums, that's not a bad thing. Besides, she's been banned from MTV and much of Pop radio. So a #2 album isn't at all bad under those circumstances.

I like Jen... but she's NO "superstar"... she wanted to roll the dice for money and moviestar respect instead of starting a family, but ended up with just the money. Not bad! I don't feel sorry for her!! She can have any man and live any where in the world she pleases.
