Tom sneaks mascara and facials behind Katie's back. Jim Carrey likes kissing Ewan McGregor. Brad Pitt's nose hair secret revealed! Gwyneth Paltrow has a filthy sense of humor. Wednesday gossip ranges from superficial to superficially sordid.

Finally, an explanation for Tom Cruise's relationship with Katie Holmes: He is using her for her makeup. The National Enquirer says Tom is dealing with a "major midlife crisis" by "slather[ing] on" Katie's foundation and mascara. (Are we really to believe Tom doesn't have makeup of his own?) He also partakes in Katie's $320 face cream (probably a reference to Creme de la Mer, which retails at a rate of $14.50 per ounce) because he's not Tom Cruise if he isn't getting facials behind his wife's back. Instead of running this under the banner "First to Know," the Enquirer should have gone with "Last to Know." [National Enquirer, top image via Getty]
