As if this weren't already a scary enough place these days, Michael Jackson has announced that he's teaming up to star in a movie with ... Liza Minnelli.

"It's about two struggling entertainers trying to make it. They get turned away everywhere they go -- with some of the best dancing ever," Jackson tells TV Guide in its upcoming issue. "I'm not joking!"

That's what we were afraid of.

But he no longer puts on his pants one leg at a time

"I still live with my folks, who make me mow the grass and take the garbage out."

-- Hayden Christensen on how little his life has changed since he stepped into the role of the youthful Anakin Skywalker in "Star Wars: Episode I," in People magazine.

Edible gonads?

And speaking of scary, don't go opening Alicia Silverstone's fridge on a full stomach. She's got Raw Balls in there. And she eats them.

"I like the name," the vegan actress explains to InStyle. "They're made of dates, walnuts, almonds, carob and salt. They are so good."

We'll just have to take her word for it.

Oddly enough, "CSI" star Jorja Fox has some strange orbs in her fridge, too. "I have a cat ball in a plastic container with catnip and dog vitamins that look like sausages," Fox tells the magazine.

But Heather Paige Kent, star of "The First $20 Million is Always the Hardest," has the biggest balls of all. She's not ashamed to tell us that the strangest thing in her icebox is smooth skin in a jar.

"Honestly, we keep Botox in our refrigerator," the youthful-looking actress confesses. "My husband is a plastic surgeon, and he injects me every six months."

How sweet.

No Botox in her fridge

"Being sexy is being confident. It's important to know you don't have silicone breasts falling out and a thigh-high skirt. Sometimes you meet people and they think, 'Another cute little blond actress.' That's not who I am."

Juicy bits

No wonder Mr. Spock was so unemotional. Leonard Nimoy, who played the pointy-eared Vulcan on the original "Star Trek" series, has revealed that he was struggling with alcoholism throughout his stint on the Starship Enterprise. "I started drinking regularly, ritually, during the second or third year of our series," Nimoy, now sober, told his costar William Shatner during a taped interview. "The minute we finished the last shot I would have a drink. Then it became a series of drinks, little by little. Before I knew it I was drinking more and more because my addictive personality was taking over." Logic had nothing to do with it.

Will Heather Graham one day call Cher her mother-in-law? According to the New York Post, the "From Hell" star is dating Elijah Blue Allman, son of Gregg Allman and Cher. And you thought we'd moved on from fridges full of Botox.

Don't break a hip-hop: Dominic Chianese, who plays Uncle Junior on "The Sopranos," is starring in the music video for "Float on With Us" by the group Full Force. The 70-year-old actor plays an old man who gets awakened by loud music, runs out in his PJs to give the musicmakers a piece of his mind and ends up partying like a rock star. No, I don't suppose the Bada-Bing girls make an appearance.
