The word is that she asked him to wash and comb his hair, gain some weight and stop mumbling. Brand responded by saying,..."mmmph! wzzuh fzzuh mzzuh!", and filed for divorce.

Katy took a big risk by marrying a recovering heroin & sex addict. She is way too pretty and talented for him to begin with, he's just corny. I guess he got tired of hitting it .

Katy and Russell each have their own particular brand of talent and no appreciable common ground between them. I've never understood that pairing.

Understood it even less when one considers Katy's obvious devotion to grooming/personal hygiene in contrast to Russell's unmistakeable Aston Kutcher Disorder.

AKD is not difficult to spot - it is a wholesale disregard for shampoo, haircare professionals, seasonally-appropriate clothes that match, and the ability to, without uttering a word, convince those approaching to stand upwind to avoid offending odors.

All the money rolling around the entertainment industry and so many looking like their hairdressers hold a grudge.

Perhaps RB was KP's humanitarian cause...

I think that Natalie Portman had a pretty damn good year. Oscar and a baby boy.
