Hacker reads Paris Hilton’s e-mail

Poor Paris Hilton doesn’t have too much luck when it comes to privacy issues. The partying heiress has been the victim of a hacker who somehow got access to her Blackberry and was reading her private e-mails, says a source.

“It became obvious to her what was going on,” says the source. “She was pretty upset about it. It’s one thing to have people looking at your sex tapes, but having people reading your personal e-mails is a real invasion of privacy.”     

Hilton’s rep couldn’t be reached for comment.

Jolie: I’m no homewrecker

NEW YORK - NOVEMBER 22: Actress Angelina Jolie attends a special screening of

Angelina Jolie is blasting those rumors that she was a third party in the breakup of Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston’s marriage — and in the process, she’s pretty much confirmed buzz that Pitt was miserable because he wanted to have a child.

“I’ve been painted as the Wicked Witch of the West and a marriage wrecker. But all I’ve ever been to Brad is a shoulder to cry on,” Jolie said, according to the London Sunday Express. “Half the world believes we had an affair and I’m the one to blame for his split. But the truth is I was there to try to help him through his pain. He longs to be a father and he’s been in emotional turmoil for a long time because that hasn’t happened for him.”

Jolie’s innocence is getting backed up by an unlikely source: Robin Lane Fox, the historical advisor to “Alexander.” The Oxford historian became friendly with Jolie during the movie shoot. “In my view there is no question of Angelina interfering in Brad Pitt’s marriage,” Fox told an audience at the Royal Geographic Society. But he says one actor did seem to have the hots for her: “My money is on Val Kilmer, who played King Philip in ‘Alexander,’ who was making a very clever run for Jolie on the inside track.”

NEW YORK - OCTOBER 26: Actress Nicole Kidman arrives at the Loews Lincoln Square Theater for the premiere screening of

“The English Patient” star Kristin Scott Thomas fired her publicist for suggesting she should get Botoxed.  . . . Nicole Kidman snapped at a reporter who asked how much she was earning on “Eucalyptus.” Kidman is said to be taking the actor’s minimum wage of $570 a week to star in the Aussie film opposite Russell Crowe, according to World Entertainment News Network, but when asked about it, she reportedly snapped, “[Salary stories are] intrusive. Do you ask your neighbor what are they earning for their job? Why should I have to put up with it?”  . . .  Cloris Leachman would probably demand a lot more than that to star opposite Crowe. “I have a lot of trouble with Russell Crowe,” the “Spanglish” star told Los Angeles magazine. “He’s mush. He’s the Pillsbury Doughboy. I mean, he’s been in some great films, but not because of him.”
