Sex and the single zit

Forget the pimple, Iglesias says Kournikova is the "sexiest woman in the world." Plus: Rosie may be coming out, but Paltrow's stalker isn't.

Anna and Enrique sittin' in a tree?

Just a few weeks ago, the London tabloids were abuzz with reports that Enrique Iglesias made Anna Kournikova cry by refusing to kiss her during the filming of the video for his single "Escape," on which she appeared. He was, the reports went, put off by a particularly unsightly zit on her lip, and managed to get over it only after the intervention of a skilled makeup artist.

Well, either those reports got it all shockingly, woefully wrong, or things have changed since then. Because now old Enrique doesn't seem to be put off in the k-i-s-s-i-n-g department at all.

"There's a chemistry between us," the Spanish singer said of the Russian tennis star, according to the U.K. Sun.

"She's cool, really nice. She's the kind of girl who is crazy but in a cool way," he told the paper. "She's not prissy; you can mess around with her and she's down with anything. She has a good sense of humor; she's fun."

What's more, he says, "Anna is one of the sexiest women in the whole world."

Lip zit notwithstanding.

How you doin', big fella?

Some like it hot ... but Matt LeBlanc is apparently not one of them.

Eddie Izzard, who starred alongside LeBlanc in the flick "All the Queen's Men," about soldiers infiltrating Nazi Germany by posing as women, said the "Friends" star was no big fan of women's duds. The high heels in particular kinda bummed his high.

"He had them as low as possible. He wasn't wild about wearing them," Izzard blabbed to

In general, Izzard says, LeBlanc "made a kind of butch, big girl's blouse sort of a girl."

Though by the time filming wrapped, he says, "He got chilled out about wearing dresses."

I'm guessing the bras, however, are another matter ...

Sayonara, stalker

Good news for Gwyneth Paltrow: Her stalker will not be back on the streets to render her "very fearful" for the foreseeable future.

A court has upheld the December 2001 conviction of Dante Michael Siou, who frightened the bejeezus out of Paltrow after he sent her hundreds of letters, e-mails and packages and then showed up on her parents' doorstep.

Siou, 51, has been in a high-security psychiatric hospital since his conviction and, it now appears, will remain there until he is no longer deemed to be a threat to himself or anyone else.

In other words, the hospital's sliding doors are clamped pretty tightly shut there.
