He’s done it! Tom Cruise has proposed to girlfriend Katie Holmes, officially putting the publicity machine that is their whirlwind romance into overdrive. The "War of the Worlds" star, in Paris to promote his upcoming alien action flick, announced the couple’s engagement at a press conference Friday morning. According to Cruise, he popped the question atop the world’s most famous landmark (the Eiffel Tower) in the world’s most romantic city (Paris, bien sûr).

It’s been confirmed: Lindsay Lohan‘s boobs are real. That is, cinematically speaking; recent rumors alleged that the starlet’s upcoming family flick, "Herbie: Fully Loaded" was in danger of losing its kid-friendly G-rating due to scenes with bountiful cleavage, requiring a rumored $1 million post-production digital retouching. True or false? Herbie helmer Angela Robinson ("D.E.B.S.") officially denied the claim, assuring audiences that the Love Bug’s co-star will grace screens later this month in all her untouched, full-figured glory.

And finally, if you’re looking for an original gift idea for a celeb-obsessed friend, look no further than the Next Big Thing: Celebrity Air. An enterprising Los Angeles writer and his chiropractor friend, under the moniker "The Celebrity Air Collection Squad," are auctioning off a mason jar of air captured at the Westwood premiere of "Mr. and Mrs. Smith." According to the Ebay listing, the jar contains "the same air molecules that were zipping around those in attendance" and was sealed as Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt strolled by down the red carpet. Sound like a crock to you? Bidding on the current Celebrity Jar is creeping past $100, and counting.
