“I told my son I was working with The Rock and he said, ‘Mom, can you smell what The Rock is cooking?’ I was like, ‘What the hell are you talking about?’

JASON LEE, WHOSE COMEDY MY NAME IS EARL (SEASON 2) IS OUT ON DVD, DISHES ON …
Earl’s moustache: I wish I didn’t have it anymore. Most foods are tough, especially hot wings and sandwiches. Though being Earl gives me license to have it be a bit wild. You look at Magnum, P.I., and that’s a great moustache, but it’s more trimmed because he’s a playboy. Earl doesn’t ever have to look sharp for anyone.
Costarring with new mom Jaime Pressly: She brings her son [4-month-old Dezi James] everywhere she goes. I think she takes a lot of pride, being a true southern girl, in being hands-on and the least Hollywood as possible. She’s got it all under control.
His real-life karma: I stole some candy from a store once and was chased by a security guard. I lied to my mom about it and felt pretty bad. It was the “tough guy” friend I was hanging out with that thought it would be cool, so I went along with it. I wasn’t a good criminal. He was like “whatever,” while I was shaking in my pants.
“I cannot wait to be able to drink three glasses of champagne and just hang out!
—MILLA JOVOVICH, currently starring in Resident Evil: Extinction, on what she’s looking forward to after her first child is born this fall
3 Questions For …
Juno’s Jason Bateman
1 YOUR FIRST CHILD, DAUGHTER FRANCESCA, WILL TURN 1 THIS MONTH. HOW ARE THINGS GOING?
She’s got the wiggle, “I don’t want to sleep” part down! She might want to move on to something else—like being quiet and sleeping.
2 THE ADS SAY BECOMING A PARENT CHANGES EVERYTHING. TRUE?
Yeah, but I was used to going to bed at like 10. I became an adult before I had a kid, which I highly recommend.
3 ARE YOU ENJOYING YOUR FATHER-DAUGHTER MOMENTS?
I just like to throw her around. She’s a real good snuggler and she likes to give kisses and hugs. And her neck smells fantastic! You just want to ball her up and stuff her in your pocket. I’m doing all that until she gets too big and doesn’t want to kiss her dad anymore.
