INSIDER: Today's celebrity gossip from around the world
*SHARON OSBOURNE has revealed she had a fling with JAY LENO before getting together with husband OZZY.
The X Factor judge spilled the beans about her brief romance with the talk show host while appearing on another chat show, The Talk, according to E!.
Telling the story, Sharon said: “I thought that everybody knew everything about me because I tell everything, but this, I don’t know why, I just didn’t discuss it before or share it or anything. And it’s not like it’s a dirty little secret.
“OK, let’s cut to when I was 25, I had just moved to America, I didn’t know many people. I had met my husband but we weren’t together, we were just friends.

“So anyway, I come down to this club and it is full of men performing and this one person, I think, ‘Oh he’s very nice, very funny’.”
Sharon admitted she briefly dated Jay, but “the fling was more fling for me and not fling enough for him because a couple of months into it, he brought around the real love of his life for me to meet. And she was lovely and they took me to Fat Burger and showed me around town. They were so kind to me and continued a friendship over the years – and that man that I had a flingy-wingy with was Jay Leno.”
*HARRISON FORD has insisted he has no plans to retire anytime soon, saying he wants to “stick around for as long” as he can.
The Indiana Jones star, who quit his job as a carpenter to become an actor 50 years ago, admitted giving up work is not on his mind yet.
“I think retirement’s for old people. I’m still in the business, thank you. I have a young child and I want to live as long as I can to see him grow up,” the 71-year-old told the Daily Mirror.
“I have three young grandchildren, I’m enjoying my life and I want to stick around for as long as I can.”
Harrison, who is dad to 13-year-old son Liam with third wife CALISTA FLOCKHART, has three films coming up including sci-fi adventure Ender’s Game, thriller Paranoia and comedy Anchorman 2.
*VICTORIA BECKHAM has revealed her two-year-old daughter HARPER has already acquired her love of fashion.
The former Spice Girl – who has just unveiled her latest clothing collection at New York Fashion Week with Harper watching from the front row – told graziadaily.co.uk how the toddler has started commenting on her style.
Victoria said: “She definitely has a point of view. If I’m going out for the night and I’m coming down the stairs she’ll say ‘nice dress mummy’ or ‘nice handbag mummy’.”
The mother-of-four admitted looking after the kids was a struggle during fashion week, but she has plenty of support.
She said: “It’s great because David’s here and my parents are here, and they’re fantastic taking care of Harper. It’s a juggling act when you’re a working mum.”
*HUGH JACKMAN has revealed he expects new movie Prisoners to make audiences question what lengths they would go to if their children went missing.
In the film Hugh, 44, plays the father of a six-year-old girl who goes missing and he locks horns with the detective working on the case, played by JAKE GYLLENHAAL, as he does everything he can to find his daughter.
The Wolverine actor and a father-of-two, said: “The first thing and main thing >fr 1,8
Asked how far he felt he would go to protect his own children, Hugh said: “I’d go a long way, I don’t know if I’d go as far as my character, but I’d go a long way.”
*VANESSA HUDGENS has insisted she feels proud of the grittier roles she’s taken on recently and doesn’t care if other people don’t like them.
The former Disney star has appeared in crime dramas Spring Breakers and The Frozen Ground, and can be seen later this year in action thriller Machete Kills.
She told the US version of Marie Claire: “I’m so comfortable with myself - honing in on what I love and what makes me powerful. Things I’ve been doing lately, I’m super-proud of. So I don’t really care if someone doesn’t like it, because I love it.”
*SHANE RICHIE has hinted he would like to step into SIR BRUCE FORSYTH’s shoes on Strictly Come Dancing.
The EastEnders star and TV presenter collected the Best Soap Actor gong at the TVChoice Awards, and took the opportunity to put himself forward to host the show if 85-year-old Brucie ever steps down.
Shane was joining in the banter after ANT AND DEC teased him that he is the dream contestant to appear in gruelling reality show I’m A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! on rival channel ITV.
As the Geordie duo accepted the gong for Best Reality Show they quipped: “There are still a few slots for this year so we’ll be taking names this evening.” Then Ant pointed at Shane and said, “Every year, top of the list!”.
As Shane accepted his award he retorted: “And Ant and Dec, I’m not doing jungle, but Bruce when you’re ready to retire...”.
