I‘m a film star, and I always thought that entitled me to a bit of fun. You might have heard about my escapades with my nanny. But that’s just it - I always seem to choose the most indiscreet women.

I had a one-night stand with a nobody, and she somehow managed to get pregnant. I suppose I shouldn’t have believed her when she said she was on the pill. Worse yet, the embarrassment continues. She’s on the cover of Hello! magazine, along with the child, and got $300,000 to kiss and tell.

How can I figure out which no-name women will want to brag about shagging a star and which will keep quiet?

- Jude Law

Dear Jude,

If passion drives you, let reason hold the reins.

- Benjamin Franklin

I‘ve Twittered about my late friend Michael Jackson’s new performance film, “This Is It.” I said it’s the single most brilliant piece of filmmaking I have ever seen - and I’ve been in quite a number of great films.

Some people think my comments were nothing but hyperbole. I talked about how “genius” wasn’t a big enough word to describe Michael and said the film should be Oscar-nominated in every possible category. But I spoke from the heart - I really meant what I said. I really do think people should memorize this film.

How do I convince people that I speak the truth?

- Elizabeth Taylor

Dear Elizabeth,

An exaggeration is a truth that has lost its temper.

- Kahlil Gibran

My on-again, off-again relationship is back on. And we’ve made it official - Blake and I have listed ourselves as “remarried” on Facebook. Even though we aren’t really remarried. We have to work the date out with his parole officer.

I’m so happy, but my family isn’t. They don’t want me getting back together with him. They’re worried we’ll kill each other. It’s true that our marriage could get pretty violent. And yeah, I’ve got a major drug problem I can’t seen to shake that does get worse when I’m with an enabler like Blake.

But I’m feeling in a reconciliatory mood. Can’t my family understand why?

- Amy Winehouse

Dear Amy,

The passion of hatred is so long lived and so obstinate a malady that the surest sign of death in a sick person is their desire for reconciliation.

- Jean de la Bruyere
