Q: Is it true that actor Jonny Lee Miller was married to Angelina Jolie? How long were they married? Is he in a serious relationship now? — H. in Alabama


A: Jonny, 36, was indeed married to Angelina from 1996-99. He is currently married to actress/model Michelle Hicks, who gave birth to Buster Timothy in December 2008. Jonny’s most recent project was the critically lauded drama “Eli Stone,” which ABC has decided not to pick up for the second half of the current season. He is currently starring in the political thriller “Endgame,” which also stars William Hurt and is based on the book “The Fall of the Apartheid.” It premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, with Jonny receiving excellent reviews for his role as Michael Young. In 2005, Jonny was in the running to be the new James Bond, with the role going to Daniel Craig.

Q: I rarely see pictures of Gwyneth Paltrow and hubby Chris Martin together in public. Are they still together? — A Reader, via e-mail


A: Gwyneth and Chris are still very much a married couple, and proud parents of Apple and Moses. The couple feel that the key to a healthy and strong relationship is not to put your marriage on display for the public, which is why they are not seen walking red carpets together.

Q: I had heard recently that Christian Bale lost his temper on a movie set, screaming at his fellow co-stars. Is that true? Was it on the set of “The Dark Knight?” — Jasmine G., Staunton, Va.


A: Christian Bale is known for sometimes having a rather short fuse, especially when he feels that someone is getting in the way of the forward progress of a film he’s working on. The object of his ire this time was cinematographer Shane Hurlbut during the filming this past summer on the set of “Terminator Salvation.”


Apparently, Shane walked behind actress Bryce Dallas Howard, through Christian’s line of sight, during a scene they were filming, which is a definite no-no on any movie set. Gossip Web site TMZ.com has a profanity-laced video of Christian laying into the cinematographer for his gaffe. This incident happened just days before the actor was arrested for allegedly assaulting his sister and mother in an unrelated incident in London (his family declined to press charges).

Q: I heard that Halle Berry is anxious to have more babies after giving birth to her first child last year. Are more babies in the forecast? — Bridget P. in S.C.


A: If Halle’s beau, model Gabriel Aubry, has his way, there will be many more children in the couple’s future. Gabriel comes from a big family, and is keen to give his almost 1-year-old daughter some siblings. He also says that Halle is fine with having more kids, however, as of this writing, she is not with child.
