It seems like only yesterday that Gwyneth Paltrow was onstage in her pink spaghetti-strap gown thanking the Academy, but now she's over the whole Hollywood thing.

"Hollywood is a completely male-dominated world. I want to leave," Gwynnie reportedly whinnied to the German paper Berliner Zeitung. "At the moment, there is definitely a lack of interesting female roles and nothing that I would really like to undertake."

She's considering making a move to London or Berlin or Paris, but she's not certain.

"I also think about marrying and having children, but at the moment, I don't have any concrete designs on how that should happen," she says. "It all lies in God's hands."

Immaculate conception, anyone?

Jolie's fetus position

"I'm drawn to kids that are already born."

-- Angelina Jolie on how she's fated to find her children and "not necessarily have them genetically," in Vogue. (Something else for Gwynnie to consider ...)

Flush with success!

Morgan Freeman: Big into bathrooms?

When asked in the upcoming issue of Biography magazine what he'd miss most about civilization were he to find himself suddenly stranded on a desert island, the actor talks some serious terlet.

"A great bathroom," he replies, though he declined to leave it at that.

"I say that because every time I go into a hotel I judge the whole place by the bathroom," he tells the magazine. "In my ideal bathroom, I always have a separate enclosed shower with a big shower massage head with varying sprays, a large Jacuzzi tub ... and there's plenty of room in the entire bathroom."

And his jones for a nice, big john doesn't occur only on the road either.

"That's the way my bathroom is at home too," he says. "It's a comforting place."

Talk about praying to the porcelain god.

Do you like me? Do you really like me?

"It's very, very challenging for me to try to step up to the plate and play someone like this -- even though the character has a lot of ingredients in her that I understand -- I'm wondering, 'I know I'm good, but am I good enough?'"

-- Sally Field on the challenges of her new hour-long drama series, "The Court," to the Associated Press.

She doesn't care if you like her or her dress

It's not whether you win or lose, but how comfortable your shoes are.

So says Kate Winslet.

The actress says she's way less concerned with winning the Oscar for best supporting actress for her role in "Iris" on Sunday than she is on dressing in a sensible manner.

"I just hope for the best, hope I'm going to find a dress that is comfortable and shoes that don't make me scream after half an hour," she tells Ananova.com. "You basically have to do whatever you can to really enjoy the event."

And if you believe that's all she cares about, she really is a good actress.
