There’s no need for Angelina Jolie to work off that baby weight she gained while pregnant with twins Vivienne Marcheline and Knox Léon. The Daily Mirror reports that film bosses hope to see the star sporting a fuller figure if she accepts the part of leading lady in the sequel to “The Thomas Crown Affair.”

“Ideally they want Angelina to put on (28 pounds) for the role,” an insider told the paper. “It is going to be very physically demanding, which is why they want her to carry the extra weight.”

The source claims Angelina’s performance in her last film, “Wanted,” inspired the weighty request.

“They don't want a reprise of what happened with ‘Wanted,’ where she was fainting and they had to take her costumes in,” the source said. “She was also slated for being too skinny to portray an action woman, and for ‘Thomas Crown’ they want a convincing female lead.”

Caine can’t imagine ‘Dark Knight’ follow-upCreating a record-breaking, blockbuster installment of a well-loved film franchise poses one big problem. How do you top it?

Michael Caine, who plays Bat-butler Alfred Pennyworth in “The Dark Knight,” says it won’t be easy.

“I think this one will be such a success, it will be difficult to do a sequel because we've done one and we've topped it, obviously, and now we've got to top this,” Michael said in an interview with WENN. “That is difficult. That is difficult because we've already broken the box office (record) in American movie history. We've got to break our own record. It's hard.”

The veteran actor explained that the problem lies in the fact that “The Dark Knight” isn’t simply the finest “Batman” ever made, but “it's one of the best movies” ever made.

Dustin Diamond to pen ‘Saved by the Bell’ tell-allWhat went on after class at Bayside High School? Apparently, a lot more than fans of the squeaky-clean teen sitcom “Saved by the Bell” would have thought.

Jake Johnson and Damon Wayans Jr. on the "Let's Be Cops," red carpet, Selena Gomez is immortalized in wax and more.

Dustin Diamond, otherwise known as everyone’s favorite homeroom misfit “Screech,” plans to dish the behind-the scenes dirt in a new tell-all book, reports New York Magazine.

According to publisher Gotham Books, Dustin’s “Behind the Bell” will reveal “sexual escapades among cast members, drug use, and hardcore partying.”

Here’s hoping Miss Bliss and Mr. Belding had nothing to do with it.

Dish on the flyWhile many of Hollywood’s mothers-to-be hit the gym in a struggle to stay in peak shape during their pregnancies, “X-Files” actress Gillian Anderson prefers to sit back and take a break from fitness. “The only thing I do when I'm pregnant is eat and sit on my butt!” Gillian told Usmagazine.com. “I'm not really craving anything, but there's the lazy part of me that thinks, 'What's the point in working out until I have the baby?' Then we'll actually do something!” … As Al Reynolds expressed in his recent YouTube videos, he really misses his soon-to-be-ex-wife Star Jones. Maybe that explains why he was spotted last week at a Miami fashion show in the company of a woman bearing a strong resemblance to the former “View” host.  “He came to the Tommy Bahama show at the Raleigh with a look-alike,” a Page Six spywitness revealed. “But this one was in what looked like a fake Herve Leger and 4-inch stilettos.
