Hilton's reservations...

  • Paris Hilton, who refused to let Steve Coogan into her Hollywood home despite him banging on the door for an hour, dismissively refers to the Alan Patridge funnyman as ‘Courtney’s Creep’ after his fling with Courtney Love.
  • It's been much-hyped - and was the hit of the Toronto Film Festival - but how much pulling power has Sacha Baron Cohen's new Borat film really got? The sneak preview for MySpace members in London this week, six weeks ahead of its release date, was only about two-thirds full – even though it was free. Talk about not being able to give tickets away...
  • Jack Dee says he wants to guest star in the next series of Doctor Who as ‘probably a villain - maybe as Cyberman number 6’
  • Graham Norton has blasted Bono for dodging taxes in Ireland by using a Netherlands business base for U2. ‘People like Bono, really annoy me. He goes to hell and back to avoid paying tax… And then he's asking me to buy a well for an African village. Tarmac the road outside your house, you tightwad. Or pay for a school in Ireland.’
  • Ricky Gervais says he fancies opening an animal sanctuary with some of his wealth. ‘Only little furry creatures though,’ he adds. ‘Not ones that can take your hand off.
  • Alan Davies: ‘I was hopelessly pissed and promiscuous in my twenties at the Edinburgh Festival. It was absolutely standard practice. And I was far from being the most pissed and the most promiscuous.
  • Simon Munnery has a new job away from comedy – as guerrilla artist Banksy's spokesman. Munnery was in Los Angeles last weekend for the opening of Banksy’s Barely Legal show, the one featuring a garishly painted elephant.
  • Ricky Gervais’s sidekick Karl Pilkington likes visiting Regent's Park because he enjoys 'seeing the tops of the giraffes for free' in London Zoo.
