David Boreanaz plays a cocky FBI agent on his hit show, Bones, but he’s a softie when it comes to his almost 3-year-old daughter Bella and her mini beauty routine. That’s why the actor was happy to support his wife Jaime‘s latest project: Chrome Girl, an all-natural nail polish collection.
Launched in Feb. 2013, Jaime and her partner Melissa Ravo came up with the idea while polishing their little girls’ nails and realizing all the harmful ingredients that may inadvertently end up in their mouths.
So the good pals decided to make a polish that is free of all the bad stuff (formaldehyde, DBP, toluene or camphor) and safe enough for kids, but that doesn’t compromise on rich color.
It’s a good thing David was willing to help out during the creative process. “I immediately fell in love with designing the colors,” he tells PEOPLE. “And as a parent, I was immediately drawn to the safety benefits.”
And it already has celeb fans – mom and actress Jennifer Hudson, who wore the Hard to Get shade to this year’s Oscars.

Ali Landry‘s baby bump was barely noticeable when PEOPLE caught up with the nearly-due TV personality in late June – but as she explains, she owes much of her slim and trim figure to her newly discovered exercise regimen.
“At this point, when you’re three weeks away and so uncomfortable, the last thing you want to do is put on spandex and go to a gym,” Landry, who is expecting her second son any day now, says.
“I just recently switched to water workouts. I don’t feel like I’m pregnant in the water.”
The best result of the tri-weekly workout that she calls “insane” is it has smoothed out her cellulite – something the brunette beauty admits affects her lower bottom area.
“[Getting rid of my cellulite] is something I work on even when I’m in really great shape,” Landry, 39, says. “But when you’re pregnant, there are more hormones and you get more cellulite.”
Adds Landry of her aquatic-induced slim-down: “I’m feeling really good. With my other pregnancies, at this point, I would stop working out because it’s too uncomfortable. I’m in shock. I can’t believe I haven’t done this workout before. It’s a big revelation for me. I think I’ll be able to workout quicker after the baby is born, but it’s no pressure whatsoever on your body.”
Despite a little cellulite, one issue the pregnant starlet has never dealt with is stretch marks. She says part of having none “whatsoever” is hereditary and the other is because she can’t get enough of Palmer’s cocoa butter formula.
“I’ve been using the products forever,” she explains, while at Hollywood’s Siren Studios, on the set of her shoot for the ad she’s filming for the line. “I’ve never been so moisturized in my entire life.”
Also on hand to shoot were Landry’s two little ones, Estela Ines, 6, who recently graduated from kindergarten, and 21-month-old Marcelo Alejandro.
“Estela will be great,” Landry predicts of her daughter’s little cameo. “Marcelo is a wildcard. I don’t know what he’s going to do. I’m a little anxious.”
As Landry and hubby, Alejandro Monteverde geared up for their third child, they had a tougher time coming up with a name.
“We wanted a worldy set of names, and that has been our challenge with this baby,” the former Miss USA explains. “We have to find a name that goes with Marcelo and Estela. I wanted a name that I really like that still had more of a European flair than a Spanish flair.”
And while she isn’t giving away the decided name just yet, she does tease that there may be some religious affiliation.
“We were in Rome for a trip – we got to meet the Pope and he blessed this baby. So part of the name might have something to do with our new Pope,” Landry says. “The other part of the name we came up with on our own. We’re excited. My daughter doesn’t love it. I love it, but she wanted other things. Sorry!”

NAOMI WATTS opted for a white Versace gown at the world premiere of her latest film, “Diana.”
Hit or miss?
Naomi‘s fashion choices are usually on the simple but elegant side, and she made no effort to break out of that formula when she hit the red carpet on Thursday for the premiere of “Diana”-the much-awaited biopic about the late, beloved Princess of Wales.
The actress wore a white Versace gown with an asymmetrical neckline, a keyhole bodice, and a thigh-high slit.
To complete the outfit, Naomi went with silver Chopard jewels, a black Edie Parker clutch, and black Christian Loubotin peep-toe pumps.
A simple updo and light makeup provided the finishing touches.

In recent Hollywood news, WENTWORTH MILLER has admitted that he tried to commit suicide several times when he was young… due to the hardships of keeping his sexual orientation a secret.
One month after officially coming out as a gay man to the public, the actor has once again opened up about his personal struggles with being gay, and how it led to him attempting to commit suicide on multiple occasions when he was a teenager.
Speaking at Saturday’s Human Rights Campaign Dinner in Seattle, Miller shared:
“The first time that I tried to kill myself, I was 15. I waited until my family went away for the weekend and I was alone in the house and I swallowed a bottle of pills.”
The “Prison Break” star continued:
“When someone asked me if that was a cry for help, I said no, because I told no one. You only cry for help if you believe there’s help to cry for. I wanted out.”
At the height of his fame as tattooed hottie Michael Scofield, Wentworth was constantly hounded by gay rumors, but he denied them. He also revealed that had “multiple opportunities to speak” out about his sexual orientation, but “chose not to.”
The actor explained:
“When I thought about the possibility of coming out and how that would impact me and the career I worked so hard for, I was filled with fear.”
It wasn’t until last month, of course, when he finally saw an opportunity to come out of the closet-it was after he received an invitation to the St. Petersburg Film Festival in Russia, which he declined due to the country’s strong anti-gay stance.
“I thought, ‘Let me be to someone else what no one was to me.'”

In a shocking new interview with celebrity news, JAMES FRANCO reveals:
“I wish I was gay.”
Since high school, James Franco has been rumored to be gay. It got worse when he started taking on transgender roles and questioning his sexuality, despite having sex scenes with women in his other movies.
But in a candid interview with The Daily Beast on Monday, the “Spring Breakers” actor finally gave a meatier answer to address the pressing question.
When asked about the gay jokes at the recent Comedy Central roast, Franco said:
“If that’s what they were going to make fun of me for, I was like, ‘Great! Bring on the gay jokes!’ because these aren’t insults at all.”
“I don’t even care if people think I’m gay, so it was like, ‘Awesome!’ I mean, I wish I was … I wish I was gay.”
There it is.
An explanation followed:
“My relationship with my public image over the past four or five years has just become weirder and weirder, because I look at it and it’s me, and it’s not me, so if other people want to use that for their own purposes or needs, I’m fine with it.”
About his latest directorial project, “Child of God,” which was based on the Cormac McCarthy novel about a necrophiliac killer, Franco revealed:
“It’s not that I, in my own life, find dead bodies particularly sexy or anything like that, but in a film, it allows you, in a very extreme way, to deal with a character whose imagination has gone to a crazy place.”
“It also deals with loneliness, uncontrollable compulsion, as well as the artistic impulse.”
You weird, weird man.

Turns out it’s not really “Party All the Time” for Eddie Murphy. The Beverly Hills Cop actor, whose 1985 hit “Party All the Time,” was placed on VH1’s list of 100 Greatest One Hit Wonders, has released a new track — and it’s a lot more mellow than the Rick James-produced pop track.
On Tuesday, Sept. 3, the 52-year-old comedian and actor wrote a single tweet on his official Twitter account, sharing a link to his new song “Red Light,” featuring none other than Snoop Lion.

The reggae/rock song features a slow, drum-infused beat and a slow drawl from Murphy. About three minutes into the song, Snoop Lion lends his trademark vocals onto the track, in which the pair sing about police profiling.

“Broken economy, the streets are dire/ Even more than before/ I need some betterness to take me higher/ Feels like I’m gonna blow,” Murphy sings. An official music video for the song is set to debut on Monday, Sept. 9.

Murphy also previously released a second album, Love’s Alright, in the early 1990s, and even appeared in Michael Jackson‘s music video for “Remember the Time” alongside Magic Johnson and supermodel Iman.
Murphy has been keeping a relatively low profile as of late, with his last film project, A Thousand Words, opposite Kerry Washington, debuting quietly in 2012, and his last bigger film, Tower Heist, being largely panned in 2011.

The funnyman was originally set to host the Oscars in 2011, but he promptly stepped down as host after his Tower Heist director, Brett Ratner, resigned as producer of the program.
