Getting satisfaction

A Mick Jagger look-alike took full advantage of his doppelganger’s status at a New York nightclub, accepting VIP perks and attracting the attention of female fans, a club spokeswoman said.

The impersonator spent about 1½ hours in the Spirit nightclub last weekend before telling a club-provided security guard that he was feeling overwhelmed by the crowd surrounding him and wanted to leave, spokeswoman Claire O’Connor told the New York Post.

“The clone was whisked, with three girls, down a back staircase,” she said. “He asked to stop at the ladies’ room on the way out, and spent 10 minutes in the ladies’ room with the three girls.”

Girl talk

Are Ben and Jen expecting a girl?

Jennifer Garner appeared on NBC’s “Tonight Show” this week and seemed to refer to her future bundle of joy as “she.”

“You can just start to feel really pregnant. Like you are the hugest person on the face of the planet,” Miss Garner said of the baby she’s expecting with hubby Ben Affleck … And then I felt just bigger and bigger like she…”


Miss Garner then put both hands over her mouth.

“We have one or the other for sure,” was all the “Alias” star would say after the apparent slip-up.

The couple were married in June, and the baby is due around Christmas.

‘Bag ladies’

Actresses Julia Roberts and Cameron Diaz are “bag ladies” compared with the glamour-conscious stars of Hollywood’s golden age, fashion designer Valentino tells German newspaper Die Zeit in an interview published yesterday.

“Today you see Julia Roberts and Cameron Diaz running around looking unkempt in jogging trousers, they look like bag ladies, like homeless people. In the past you never saw that,” he says.

“In the past, actresses had to commit in their contracts to appear in public like stars when they left their homes,” adds Valentino, who dresses actress Gwyneth Paltrow.

Valentino made his name in the 1960s, notes Reuters news agency, and designed the wedding dress worn by Jacqueline Kennedy for her marriage to Greek shipping tycoon Aristotle Onassis.

‘Tell’ us about it

Late rapper Tupac Shakur is at it again — inking deals and releasing product from the grave.

A screenplay he wrote in 1995, “Live 2 Tell,” is being developed into a feature film, with shooting set to begin in March, the project’s producer tells Billboard.com this week.

Insomnia Media Group acquired the script from Mr. Shakur’s mother, Afeni Shakur, who will produce the project with Preston Holmes, associate producer of the feature film “Hustle & Flow.”

“Live 2 Tell” follows a black Shakur-like teen from the projects who becomes a drug kingpin and then turns his life around.
