Asia Argento would like you to know about her XXX-rated dreams.

She has, she tells Rolling Stone, "Many wet dreams, all the time, very sexual dreams."

She also dreams a lot about her "XXX" costar, Vin Diesel, but these, she insists, are perfectly dry.

"Never sexy dreams, but magical, dreamy dreams, symbolic dreams," she says. "One I saw his soul and I was in awe of him."

Soul-sighting aside, Argento says she prefers the wet kind of dreams.

"They are the best," she says. "Recently, I had one about a love I'd had, and actually the sex with him wasn't really great. But in the dream he was very good. So maybe I was trying to help him in some way."

Perhaps by talking about his lack of prowess to the press?

Granny gets gabby

All that speculation about lingering antipathy between Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake? Spears says it's a crock.

Their split, she tells InStyle magazine, was totally amicable.

"We're climbing two different mountains. His priorities are different from mine right now," she says. "It wasn't a bad break-up, we still talk all the time."

Funny, that's not what Timberlake's grandmother, Sadie Bomar, says.

"Were delighted they aren't dating anymore," Bomar tells the U.K. Sun. "The break-up has been good for him. He has been able to do a lot of songwriting. Britney was a distraction."

Bomar says she's planning to visit Timberlake in his new Hollywood Hills home.

"I have an invitation to go up there and stay next week," she says. "But Britney won't be getting one."

Geez, Granny, retract them claws!

Harsh toke

Baltimore boy John Waters may be the toast of New York this week, basking in the rave reviews of the Broadway musical adaptation of his flick "Hairspray." But the Big Apple hasnt always embraced his quirky self quite so warmly.

"When I was 19 at NYU, I got caught by the school security smoking pot in my room," the filmmaker told celebrity researcher Baird Jones at the "Hairspray" premiere party the other night. "This was back in 1965 when something like that was shocking since grass was so new. It was the first pot bust ever on a college campus. It was written up everywhere: 'John Waters, film student from Baltimore, kicked out of NYU for smoking pot.' There was even a book with a chapter about my bust called 'One in Seven: Drugs on Campus.'"

But Waters says he "wasn't upset at all" about his sudden notoriety.

"As I was packing my bags to leave, NYU kept threatening to have me arrested," he recalls. "Frankly, I was hoping they would send me to jail so I could do the ultimate 16-millimeter prison film."
