Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes seem inseparable as they make the rounds promoting his new film, “Lions for Lambs,” but Life & Style reports that Hollywood’s power couple isn’t always attached at the hip. In fact, an insider tells the magazine they don’t even share the same bed.

“There are plenty of times when they have a romantic evening together, and then go their separate ways when it’s time to turn out the lights,” the source says. “Katie complains that Tom snores like a bear, and he likes to stay up late reading.”

A rep for the twosome told L&S that there’s no truth to the not-so-close quarters claim, but the source insists, “When it comes to bedtime, (Tom and Katie) love their time apart.”

Could it be that Tom’s snoring isn’t really what’s driving a wedge in the marital bed? According to Star, jealousy recently reared it’s ugly head in the previously rock solid union.

“Katie has never been a jealous wife,” a friend of the couple told Star. “But she now seems to feel that she has a reason to worry.”

“Tom has grown more and more secretive over the last year, and while Katie knows he’s a magnet for other women, she’s heard whispers about him getting uncomfortably close to some.” The source added, “It’s getting to the point where Katie appears so insecure that she doesn’t want to leave his side.” Well, except at night.

As the Spice Girls prepare for their much anticipated world tour reunion, Victoria “Posh” Beckham is focused one seriously weighty issue – her BMI index. The UK’s Mirror reports that the preternaturally skinny fashion plate is attempting to increase her profile by packing on the pounds.

“Vic is under orders to have at least five small meals a day, to get her body prepared for the tour,” said a source close to the singing group. “She isn't too happy about the plan but understands that it's necessary if she's to stay healthy and not burn out over the coming months.”

Posh is reportedly inflating her infamous undernourished appearance and increasing her energy and stamina with what might be described as the “Popeye Diet.” Her spinach-rich menu is augmented with brown rice and other carbohydrates. "It's a pretty intense — not to mention bland — regime,” said the insider. “But it's essential (Posh) sticks to it.”

Sir Paul and Stella’s one-legged insultsWhile he may’ve stopped short of calling her “Peggy,” Sir Paul McCartney isn’t above having a laugh at his one-legged ex-wife’s expense, reports Digital Spy. Nor, for that matter, is his famous designer daughter Stella. In a phone conversation recorded by Heather Mills, Paul and Stella allegedly shared a laugh over Heather’s amputated appendage.

“What (Heather) says she heard Sir Paul say on the tape about her amputated leg left her incandescent with rage,” Heather’s friend reported. “She says he used an insulting slang word about disabled people. That he and Stella — her archenemy — had a laugh about it. Heather was — and still is — seething about it.”

According to Heather’s confidant, Paul immediately apologized when confronted with the recording. Stella, who reportedly begged her father not to marry Heather way back when, wasn’t so easily guilted. Page Six reports that the designer’s new jewelry line includes a $500 necklace featuring a pendent that appears to be a single leg.

Dish on the fly
Due to a scheduling mix-up, Morgan Freeman figured his “Gone Baby Gone” co-star Casey Affleck for a slacker, and, according to ContactMusic, the veteran actor gave Ben Affleck’s little bro an earful. “No one wanted to admit that they had brought (Morgan) in early,” Casey shared. “So I went up to Morgan's trailer, and knocked on the door. And I thought, ‘I'm going to introduce myself to Morgan Freeman.’ And he came out and gave me a lecture for 15 minutes about being late and being professional. And so I had live with that.” … Sure, Angelina Jolie’s bared it all on celluloid before, but Digital Spy reports that now she’s suddenly shy after viewing nude scenes of her computer-animated likeness in the upcoming film “Beowulf.”  “I was really surprised that I felt that exposed,” Angie explained. “There are certain moments where I felt actually shy — and called home, just to explain that the fun movie that I had done that was digital animation was, in fact, a little different than (what) we expected.”
