In Other News...Rose McGowan, Al Pacino, Daryl Hannah, and James Doohan

Ah, Tinseltown romances. Rumor has it there’s a new hot couple in town, and they’re bound to give TomKat, Bennifer II and Brangelina a run for their publicity-generating money. Who, might you ask, is this new supercouple? He’s an Oscar-winning A-lister, she’s a raven-haired starlet, and they are — brace yourselves — Al Pacino and Rose McGowan. According to reports, Pacino, 65, best known for a host of legendary performances including roles in "The Godfather Trilogy," "Serpico," "Scarface," "Scent of a Woman," "Carlito’s Way," and many, many other great films, won over the 31-year old "Charmed" beauty — despite her initial reluctance at their three-decade age difference. The never-married Pacino has been known to like his ladies young, and has been linked to both Elle MacPherson and Winona Ryder; McGowan, of course, enjoyed an engagement of her own to shock rocker Marilyn Manson.

It looks like audiences will soon bid farewell to "Kill Bill‘s" second-most badass assassin lady, as Daryl Hannah — aka Elle Driver aka California Mountain Snake — has announced plans to retire following the release of her next film, "Living Neon Dreams." The statuesque blonde, who first garnered attention as a sexy android in "Blade Runner" and had memorable turns in "Splash," "The Clan of the Cave Bear," and "The Attack of the 50 Ft. Woman," plans to halt her Hollywood career and instead ‘save the planet and other living creatures.’ Hannah has already been leading a model eco-friendly lifestyle; she lives in a reclaimed 19th century barn, runs her home on solar power, and drives a car that runs on vegetable oil.

And, finally, we bid a final farewell to one of science fiction’s dearest characters, as the USS Enterprise’s original Chief Engineer passed away Wednesday. James Doohan, who will be remembered for his portrayal of Montgomery "Scotty" Scott on the beloved "Star Trek" television series and subsequent motion pictures, was a native Canadian who lost part of a finger in World War II; he had recently battled Alzheimer’s disease and a bout of pneumonia. As per his wishes, Doohan will be cremated, and then, like "Star Trek" creator Gene Roddenberry before him, have his ashes launched into space — the Final Frontier.
