Enrique Iglesias: One Suave Crooner

Punctuality has never been one of his strengths. It’s 5 p.m. and Enrique Iglesias is keeping the photographer waiting—along with a reporter, the singer’s publicist, his manager, and a trayful of now-frigid chicken fingers. But Latin music’s latest offering to the American Gods of Pop is MIA in Miami. In fact, two hours—and the pink coastal sky that was to be the backdrop for the pictures—pass before Iglesias, 24, finds his way to this South Beach hotel suite.

EW reports from the Toronto Film Festival

Jewel, Skeet Ulrich, ...

At Bruce Willis’ last-minute Planet Hollywood bash celebrating the screening of ”Breakfast of Champions” at the Toronto International Film Festival, the baseball-capped actor sat in a corner with costar Nick Nolte and ”American Beauty”’s Kevin Spacey scarfing down cheeseburgers and fries. ”Ketchup, please,” Willis bellowed to a waitress, wiping his mouth with a napkin.

Police say Dick was driving in Hollywood when he crashed into a utility pole, narrowly missing a pedestrian. Dick, they say, then fled the scene, but the nimble near victim chased him down. Afterward, cops allegedly found marijuana and cocaine in the actor’s car. Dick was released on $10,000 bail.

Benjamin Bratt breaks out

Benjamin Bratt is working double duty. In addition to filming an episode of NBC’s Law & Order, the 35-year-old actor is dealing with a mini drama of his own: It seems he’s just about had it with all the media hoopla surrounding (in succession) his relationship with Julia Roberts, the milestone of L&O’s 200th episode (which, thanks to guest star Roberts, achieved this season’s highest ratings), and his just-announced decision to make this his last season as strong-but-sensitive Det. Rey Curtis.
