George Lopez: ‘I will move to Canada‘ if Palin wins

“The Smurfs” star George Lopez is threatening to flee the country should former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin win the 2012 presidential election.

In a recent interview with CNN’s Piers Morgan, Mr. Lopez said he would retreat to Canada if Mrs. Palin takes over the Oval Office.

“If Sarah Palin becomes president at any point, I would say ‘allegedly,’ I will move to Canada,” Mr. Lopez told the British talk show host. “I will go farther north. I’ve been south, but I will go farther north. I will leave the United States of America.”

When Mr. Morgan asked Mr. Lopez to expand on this “drastic” decision, the “Beverly Hills Chihuahua 2” actor explained he wants people in power to be politically experienced.

“I like my politicians to actually have a political background, to know politics,” Mr. Lopez said of the former vice presidential candidate and governor.

Mr. Lopez was at a loss when asked about Mrs. Palin’s appeal.

“Is it that maverickness? Is it that homespun kind of Andy Griffith, wink-your-eye, shake-the-imaginary-gun thing. Maybe?” Mr. Lopez said. “Is it just that we’ve become a culture of personality? Do we elect somebody by their smile? Instead of by their content? It’s a little bit of all of that.”

Earlier this summer, Mrs. Palin launched a One Nation bus tour, fueling speculation that she’ll seek the presidency in 2012.

Mr. Lopez’s newest project, “The Smurfs,” reaches theaters Friday.

Jesse James, fiancee call off the wedding

Everybody saw it coming.

Jesse James, who famously cheated on his Academy Award-winning ex-wife, Sandra Bullock, last year, has ended his engagement to tattoo artist Kat Von D.

“I am no longer with Jesse, and out of respect for him, his family and myself, thats all the info I’d like to share. Thanks for respecting that,” Miss Von D tweeted late Monday evening.

Mr. James said the long-distance relationship took a toll on the engagement, as Miss Von D shoots her TLC reality show “LA Ink” in California, while Mr. James lives in Texas with his children.
