The slight ravages of age

An antidote to the dread disease mammarius self-approbitis? Cameron Diaz appears to have found one.

Like so many actresses before her, Diaz has found occasion recently to publicly appraise her own breasts, but her comments have been anything but self-congratulatory.

Diaz says a scene in her new film "The Sweetest Thing" in which she addresses the effect of time and gravity on her own body is drawn straight from her own life.

"I've been doing that since I was 20," the 29-year-old actress tells E! Online. "I'd hold them up and say, '16' and then let them go and the gravity kicks in -- '20.' 'Sixteen, 20. Sixteen, 20.'"

Oh, and while we're on the topic of breasts, Diaz has a couple more things to share.

"The weird thing is, my boobs fluctuate," she says.

At certain times of the month, they grow, she explains, and "I'm always like, Oh God, why? Wow! And it's like, Just weigh them, please. Just weigh them to let me know how much more I have to carry around month to month."

Well, I hope she feels better now that that's off her chest.

Deny, deny, deny

"No, we're not dating and I'm not pregnant. We haven't kissed or touched. No, we have not fought and broken up."

-- Sandra Bullock, clearing up a few rumors about her and her "Not in My Neighborhood" costar Hugh Grant, in Australia's Herald Sun.

Berry, Berry brave

Halle Berry may have dissolved into torrents of tears at the Oscars, but she apparently held it together remarkably well when the going got particularly rough on the set of the upcoming James Bond flick, "Die Another Day."

According to reports out of the U.K., the actress got caught in the fallout of a smoke grenade during an explosion stunt -- and got nailed with debris in the left eye.

The crew rushed her to a local hospital, where she was treated and released.

"The fragmant was successfully removed," a hospital source told reporters, according to "Halle now has a very inflamed cornea, which has left her with a bright red eye. It looks really painful, but she was so professional about the incident. She didn't make a fuss at all."

And she didn't thank Oprah and Jada either.

Juicy bits

Speaking of Bond, James Bond ... The denizens of the Bond empire appear to be relenting on their move to block Mike Myers from using the name "Goldmember" for his new Austin Powers flick. According to Variety, Bond producer MGM and Powers producer New Line have worked out a deal allowing the Powers people to call their film "Goldmember" in exchange for a healthy dose of free marketing. Variety also reports that New Line has registered Bond-riffing titles including "Live and Let Shag," "You Only Shag Thrice," "Never Say Member Again" and "License to Shag." I still think they ought to consider "The Man with the Golden Member."

You didn't like her. You really didn't like her. Just weeks after Sally Field's new show, "The Court," made its debut on ABC, the network has decided to pull the show due to low ratings. Talk about rendering a quick verdict.

Cue the Rocky music: Sylvester Stallone's mom is ready to go from butt prints to boxing. Jacqueline Stallone says she'd like to take part in the "Celebrity Boxing" fun -- and is reportedly particularly hot to take on Tammy Faye Bakker, Zsa Zsa Gabor or Cher's mother, Georgia Holt. "You'd be surprised," Stallone tells the Los Angeles Times. "Everyone has a secret desire to sock someone on the nose." Particularly D-list celebrities, apparently.
