Roly-Poly DiCaprioly!

Cameron Diaz says Leonardo resembles a snail; Angelina Jolie claims she's "extremely human." Plus: Courtney Love victim of $100,000 jewel heist!

Cameron Diaz has apparently gotten away with what the rest of us can only dream about: calling Titanic-size Leonardo DiCaprio a fatso to his face.

Diaz says she, Liam Neeson and Daniel Day-Lewis poked all sorts of fun at their doughy "Gangs of New York" costar, who had to pack on the pounds for his role in the Martin Scorsese flick.

"We made up names for him like Roly-Poly DiCaprioly and the Snail," Diaz told the Scottish Daily Record, "because he was so round he looked like a snail, all balled up."

The human factor

"I feel that if there is any kind of energy for me, it's because people know that I am extremely human."

Tokens of Love

Courtney Love may be more inclined to flash her family jewels than some gals -- but that doesn't mean she's happy to have had them stolen.

According to the Associated Press, the singer/actress has had more than $100,000 worth of jewelry stolen from the hotel suite she's staying in while filming "24 Hours" in Vancouver, British Columbia. Among the items taken: the wedding ring given to her by Kurt Cobain, a $30,000 ring given to her by Edward Norton "when he had only $40,000 to his name" and diamond bracelets given to her by another former beau.

Love's manager Lisa Shaw has told the press that the singer/actress "feels abandoned" by Vancouver police, who she believes haven't done enough about the case.

Perhaps she expected them to present her with a nice jewel-encrusted bauble as a token of their affection? Because everyone else apparently has.

Gone, but not gone

"I'm going to do a reality-based game show. A modern update of 'Let's Make a Deal' crossed with 'Queen for a Day.'"

-- Rosie O'Donnell on the new TV show she'll host when the old TV show she hosts wraps, in the New York Post.

Of rice and pigs

Forget Colleen "The Animal" Haskell and Sean "Extra" Kenniff.

There's a whole new generation of "Survivor" losers looking to milk their 15 minutes for all they're worth.

Keith Famie is planning to host a "Rice 101" class for the media in Chicago later this month on behalf of the USA Rice Federation. And the Michigan-based chef and amateur New Age philosopher has just signed on to host his own cooking show for the Food Network, "Taste the Adventure."

According to the Associated Press, Famie will "talk about his own food adventures" on the show, whatever that means. Here's hoping we can expect more exciting on-air comments than Famie's tepid, bland-as-rice endorsement of his show: "It seemed pretty natural, I guess," he said. Still Keith, still deep.

But I'm guessing we can expect more excitement from Michael Skupin's new quest. The Outback pig killer/burn victim is reportedly considering a run for the U.S. Senate. (Sharpen those knives, PETA fans.)

"I'm giving it a lot of thought," Skupin said at a $1,000-per-plate Republican fundraiser in Michigan last week. "If I could do it and really make a difference, I would do it."

Kissing babies is one thing, but, um, I'm not sure I'd like to shake that particular candidate's hands.
