THE WORLD ACCORDING TO KID
Try and get all philosophical and reflective with Kid Rock – we dare you! We tried it last week at the 40th anniversary celebration of the Ford Mustang at Manhattan Automobile Company, asking what he hopes to achieve by his own 40th birthday. “I already did everything,” the rocker, 33, told Daily Insider. “Everything from here on out is a bonus.” Okay, so is there anything left for him to do? “I’m sure there is,” he said, “I just don’t know her name yet.” Well, all righty then.
NO LONGER AVERAGE JOE
So how are things with Average Joe’s Adam Mesh now that the show is over? For one thing, the relationship with Samantha Trenk is “going well,” he told us at the afterparty following the Ford Mustang 40th anniversary event. “It’s a return to normalcy.” But not too much normalcy – he is still turning heads wherever he goes. Both women and men approached him repeatedly while we spoke to him. “I always got invited to these things (before the show) since my good friend works for (event co-sponsor Gotham) magazine. I used to come, but I never used to get this much attention.”
Following in the footsteps of Brad Pitt, Johnny Depp will lend his voice to yoga instructor Yogi Victor on the May 9 episode of King of the Hill. … Do you miss a certain longhaired Italian import on The Sopranos as much as Carmela does? “I think you might see Furio again,” Federico Castelluccio, who played the sexy assassin, told us at New York club The Cutting Room recently. … Kimberly Stewart (daughter of rocker Rod) modeled a dress adorned with Venus razors (with glue over the blades to prevent injuries) in the circus-themed Heatherette show during L.A.’s Fashion Week. … Ella Enchanted star Anne Hathaway recently filmed her first nude scene for the upcoming movie Havoc. “I wasn’t nervous. I know why I did it,” she tells us. “It wasn’t a matter of trying to change an image. I was playing a role that I really responded to and I believed in.” … Frankie Muniz is single again. The Malcolm in the Middle star split up with girlfriend Megan – again – just hours before last weekend’s Kids Choice Awards in L.A. “We have been together now for, like, two years,” he told us. “I am 18. She is 17. That’s why I am really excited to be here today. There are lots of hot, young girls.”
