Some might think when they see laptop cases in airports that there are actually laptops in them. If you're Snoop Dogg, a laptop computer is the last thing he'd actually put in there. Cops apparently busted Snoop for toting a 21" collapsible baton weapon in his bag, as he waltzed through an x-ray machine at John Wayne Airport in Orange County. Yes, these are the same batons U.S. Navy Seals are issued to carry around and beat the crap out of enemies with.
Snoop was detained by the O.C. Sheriff's Dept., his weapon was confiscated, and criminal charges could be a possibility. Did he just forget it was in there? Like when you forget something in your bag from your last trip? Or was he planning on kicking ass and taking names on the way to the Admiral's Club? We'll never know...
In the meantime, he should take lessons from Paris Hilton who supposedly used to stash weed in her teddy bears on overseas trips.
When not doing as the Kosovars do, Nicole Kidman does instead as the Romans do, and parties in Rome. She opened up the first annual Rome Film Fest on October 13 with her movie Fur, before jetting back to the States to tend to her troubled hubby. The event, described as a party for the people of Rome (rather than a traditional, elitist sort of affair), wrapped up on Saturday.
The festival is an official partner of the Tribeca Film Festival, so it's no surprise that Robert DeNiro and his buddy Leo DiCaprio showed up. Also in attendance were Harrison Ford, Monica Bellucci, and Sean Connery, who received this year's lifetime achievement award. Not in attendance: Sophia Loren, who was accidentally snubbed when organizers forgot to invite her. Of the snafu, Rome's mayor commented: "We didn't invite her this year because we hoped she would be the guest of honor next year, just as Sean Connery was this time." Right.
Robert DeNiro unveiled a 20-minute snippet of his upcoming movie, "The Good Shepherd," which stars Super World Traveler herself, Angelina Jolie. Sadly, Borat didn't win any awards, though it did screen there. Top honor went instead to a Russian adaptation of Hamlet called Playing the Victim.

Start looking online for your ticket to Italy, 'cause that's where it's all going down. Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise are apparenly going to tie the knot at George Clooney's manse near Lake Como, about 30 miles outside Milan, in Italy.
We were confused (Clooney's not a Scientologist), but then found out that the pair are reportedly planning a civil ceremony--to be performed by the local mayor at Clooney's Villa Oleandra in Laglio. Laglio is one of several picturesque towns that border the the lake, all famous for their food, beauty, and the beautiful celebrities who hide there. Rumor has it that the wedding will take place in the middle of next month. Holmes spent last weekend checking out the estate and its surrounding area.

He may have flown in on a private jet, on route to St. Tropez, but easy-breezy Jimmy Buffet found himself in a bit of a bind at Toulon-Hyères International Airport in the South of France this week.
Though we wouldn't call him a rock star, Buffett's reported bust was quintessentially rock 'n' roll--over 100 ecstasy pills were found in the luggage. Oops! French officials seized the club drugs and sent Buffet on his way with a measely $380 fine.
Back in the U.S. he would have been fined up to $100,000 and could have faced jail time. But luckily for him, the French seem to consider Ecstasy a lesser drug. Either that or they really like that song, "Cheeseburger in Paradise."
Note to Jim: cancel your trip to Bali; do not ask Dallas Austin for tips on Dubai.

Jude? Jude who? America's favorite minx, Sienna Miller, got caught smooching with co-star Hayden Christensen in a Canadian car park just outside Toronto.

Apparently their public face-sucking session happened both in and in front of the car, with shocked local fans in full view.
A car park? Come on, Sienna. We thought you knew better...
