163

Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag may or may not believe they are celebrities, but they definitely want out.

The duo tried to quit NBC’s I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! the very first day they arrived in Costa Rica to shoot the “C-Listers in distress” reality show, which premieres Monday.

“They wanted to be treated like stars,” a high-level source on the series tells E! News’ Ryan Seacrest. “[Spencer] literally thought he and Heidi were staying in a Four Seasons, working out and getting a tan.”

The two refused to eat the same food as the rest of the cast, and complained about being teamed with low-wattage stars, among them former model/reality show queen Janice Dickinson, actors Stephen Baldwin and Lou Diamond Phillips, former NBA star John Salley and American Idol castoff Sanjaya Malakar. An NBC exec had to coax the newlyweds to remain on board.

SACHA BARON COHEN ANGERS EMINEM AT MTV AWARDS

16228Sacha Baron Cohen is at it again.

In another MTV “holy cow” moment along the lines of the famous Madonna/Britney Spears french kiss, Cohen faced off with Enimem. Quite literally.

 In character as Bruno, the flamboyant Austrian fashion reporter, Cohen, clothed in angel gear with a visibly bare bottom, was lowered from the rafters of Universal Studios’ Gibson Amphitheater and landed smack on Eminem’s face. A visibly upset Eminem said audibly “Are you (expletive) serious?” and tried to swat away Cohen. Members of Eminem’s entourage attempted to extricate Cohen from Eminem’s face. Moments later, cameras caught Eminem storming out.

The relative unknown, who starred on the CBS series “The Class” and had roles in “Hot Fuzz” and “Ella Enchanted,” joins Antonio Banderas, Freida Pinto, Naomi Watts, Josh Brolin and Anthony Hopkins in the untitled project.

The film will shoot in London in the summer.

ANGELINA JOLIE has been ditched by the producers of the TOMB RAIDER movies after they decided she’s now too old for the role.

The Hollywood beauty starred in the first two Tomb Raider films in 2001 and 2003, but movie bosses will replace the 33-year-old with a younger star for the next instalment.

Producer Dan Lin says, “We are rebooting Lara Croft. It’s a great story that we’re going to tell, very character-orientated and more realistic than the past movies. It is an origin tale so it’s going to be a younger Lara Croft.”
