K-Stew gets Grimm; Charlize is a mommy; No gifts for Clint!

The K-Stew follies are on. On. On!

Kristen Stewart is pulling out all the stops on an aggressive publicity blitzkrieg for her Brothers Grimm adaptation, Snow White and the Huntsman, which features America’s favorite vampire bride as a sword-wielding Snow White. So derriere-kicking is our Snow, in one scene she broke costar Chris Hemsworth’s nose with one punch. That’s Thor we’re talking about.

Charlize Theron says chores are a way of life now that she has accepted the role of mother to her adopted son, Jackson. (See "Charlize Theron on being a new mum.") JOEL RYAN / Associated Press

"I swear I didn’t mean to," a penitent K-Stew told Today on Thursday. "He got too close."

Snow, K-Stew says, is a woman to be admired. "She really moves toward fear and doesn’t back away from it," she says, "so it’s really cool to watch her."

Case you wondered, K-Stew is still dating Robert Pattinson, who has raunchy, explicit sex scenes with about three dozen women, including Juliette Binoche and Patricia McKenzie, in David Cronenberg’s pic Cosmopolis.

"He’s so good in it!" K-Stew, 22, tells MTV News. "He’s really, really [good]. I don’t even know how he [did it]. I couldn’t even understand it." How he did ... um ... what?

But K-Stew is no fan of celeb sex vids, saying they are contrived, faked, narcissistic.

"They’re lying while that video is being made," she tells Interview mag. "The act is in itself a lie."


Kathie Lee opens mouth, inserts foot

Kathie Lee Gifford on Wednesday issued a Twitter apology to Martin Short for making a glaring gaffe in her Today show chat with the funnyman earlier that morning.

Gifford began with the observation that Short’s marriage to Nancy Dolman has been "one of the greatest marriages in show business." Guess she didn’t remember Dolman had died two years ago of ovarian cancer, so Gifford pushed on with "how many years are you in love with her now?" To his credit Short played along. "Married 36 years," he said.

"But you’re still in love!?" Gifford asked.

"Madly in love," he said.

In a tweet, Gifford wrote, "I send my sincerest apologies to Martin Short and his family. ... He handled situation w/enormous grace and kindness and I’m so grateful."


Tyler Perry: Leave Bobbi alone!

Actor, director, and playwright Tyler Perry is fuming over a RadarOnline story that claims Tyler’s show, Tyler Perry’s For Better or Worse, faced a major obstacle when star Bobbi "Baby" Kristina Brown stormed off the set. The gossip rag said Whitney Houston’s daughter has been so traumatized of late that she "dissolved into tears." (Dissolved?! Is that chemically possible? Must look into that.) Perry writes on Facebook that Bobbi found the work therapeutic and that she stayed the course and finished the season. "I thought that there would be no better way for me to help her move through the grieving than by giving her something to focus on," Tyler writes. "Were there tough days for her? Yes of course." He adds IN ALL CAPS, "So please ... PLEASE LEAVE THIS BABY ALONE!!!!"


Charlize Theron on being a new mum

Charlize Theron says her new role, mom to adopted son Jackson, has opened up a whole new facet of Being: doing chores yourself.

"I’ve been doing things myself in the sense that I haven’t had a night nurse or anything like that," Theron, 36, tells Interview, "so I’ve spent every night with him except for the nights that I’ve had to travel. ... Other than that, I’ve been with him every single night of his life and done every feed."


Today in EntBiz news

Stephen King says his new novel, Joyland, due June 2013 from Hard Case Crime, won’t be released as an e-book (at least for a while) because he wants fans to touch the page, the words, the fear, just as readers of pulp crime novels did last century. "I ... loved the paperbacks I grew up with as a kid," he says. "Folks who want to read it will have to buy the actual book."

Its’ a done deal for Kristen Wiig. The funnywoman officially has left Saturday Night Live to follow a big-screen acting career, says Fox News. She’s had a head start with last year’s hit Bridesmaids, which she also cowrote.

Fans of the late Amy Winehouse have made her house in London’s hip Camden ’hood a holy site, a sacred pilgrim’s stop. Now one of them could own the 2,500-square-foot, three-bedroom joint: Winehouse’s family has put it up for sale for $4.2 mil.

Steven Spielberg’s 1982 classic E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial is headed to Blu-ray. Finally. A 30th-anniversary edition is due sometime in October.

Clint Eastwood, who turned 82 on Thursday, wanted nothing for his big day. "Clint does not do holidays or gifts," his wife, E! reality star Dina Eastwood, tells E! News."So if you don’t give him a gift he gives you a big kiss and says, ‘Thank you so much for not giving me a gift.’?" Clint daughter Francesca chimes in with "fans send him gifts, we don’t."
