Sandra’s scandal worsens with Nazi photo

Need more evidence that Jesse James engaged in many activities that wife Sandra Bullock knew nothing about?

A picture of him doing his best Nazi impersonation adds to that mounting evidence. Us Weekly obtained the 2004 photo, in which James is wearing a Nazi cap, using his fingers to create a Hitler mustache and giving the infamous Nazi salute.

While there is no justification for such a thing, James’ attorney Joe Yanny told CNN that the hat was a “gag gift” from James’ Jewish godfather. And as if to illustrate that James was not an anti-Semite, Yanny said that James had actually lived on a kibbutz in Israel for “nearly a month.”

The photo was taken a year before Bullock and James married. According to a source who spoke to Us Weekly, James took the photo just for “shock value,” and he is “not a white supremacist.”

Janet Jackson heads to OprahJanet Jackson will be appearing on “The Oprah Winfrey Show” Friday. She’s there to promote her new film, “Why Did I Get Married Too?” but she’s also going to talk to Winfrey about what was going on in her life while she was filming — namely, the death of her brother Michael last June.

Janet Jackson has promoted the film with several outlets before Winfrey, but according to a source close to the singer-actress, only Winfrey is getting details on life with her brother Michael, and her feelings about his death.

“Michael’s death wasn’t about Janet. That’s why she’s said so little about it,” the source said. “But she did care deeply about Michael, and tried to help him. If Janet is going to talk to anyone about Michael’s death, it’s going to be Oprah.”

    Time to 'Clash' again -

    Sam Worthington, who played Jake Sully in 3-D film "Avatar," stars as Perseus in the 2010 remake of 1981's "Clash of the Titans." Perseus learns as a young man that the god Zeus is his real father, and must come to terms with his powers and battle the fearsome Kraken. The film was shot normally, then transformed to 3-D afterwards.

    Seeking bloody revenge -

    Acrisius (Jason Flemyng) was a king whose wife, Danae, was tricked into sleeping with Zeus, thus giving birth to Perseus.

    From 'Hulk' to 'Titans' -

    Frenchman Louis Leterrier, who also directed 2008's "The Incredible Hulk," gives notes to Worthington and Neeson on the set. Leterrier's father, Francois, is an accomplished film director.

    Warner Bros. / Warner Bros.

So yes, it will be No. 1, even if the film leaves something to be desired critically.

If “Titans” wasn’t in 3-D, “Why Did I Get Married Too” and Miley Cyrus’ “The Last Song” would both have had a solid chance to nab the No. 1 spot. With the former, you’ve got a built-in audience thanks to devotees of director Tyler Perry and the fact that the entire cast of the original film is returning.

With “The Last Song,” there’s the appeal of Nicholas Sparks (this is the film adaptation of his novel of the same name) and the cast is solid — beyond Cyrus, there’s Kelly Preston and Greg Kinnear.

Too bad both are up against a 3-D flick. Even with the rules of counter-programming, trying to beat a film that comes with a big-ticket premium is a battle even Perseus couldn't win.
