HHH WWW. SNOG. A. STAR

People with a kiss-and-tell story of celebrity sex have a new place to tell it. Internet Entertainment Group, the Web site that brought you the PAMELA ANDERSON and TOMMY LEE home sex video is providing three hours of interviews and re-enactments of sex-with-celebs.

LEONARDO DICAPRIO, JERRY SEINFELD, GEORGE CLOONEY, CHARLIE SHEEN and JACK NICHOLSON are among the stars featured.

Where did the stories come from? California sex therapist Natasha Terry interviewed people who claimed to have shared intimate moments with the rich and famous. Then she put them through polygraph tests to validate their claims.

HHH Executives at Miramax are facing the creative challenge of bringing the story of jazz trumpeter CHET BAKER to the screen for LEONARDO DICAPRIO to star in. The problem they have is that Baker was a heroin addict whose descent into degradation and depravity is not something that would appeal to DiCaprio's fans. At one stage the once-handsome musician had to relearn to play his instrument when he lost all his teeth.

"It's not an easy story to translate to the screen, particularly when you have Leo in the starring role," said a studio source. "It can't be too dark otherwise nobody will want to see it."

HHH If you are blown away by the big shoot-out scene in upcoming flick Arlington Road, take your hat off to some first class acting, because shooting the scene itself was a fiasco.

The scene, which stars JEFF BRIDGES, TIM ROBBINS, JOAN CUSACK and Robert Gossett, looks realistic enough. But behind the scenes things had gone horribly wrong.

According to Gossett, the stars arrived on the set to realize that seven of the eight weapons provided by the props department didn't work at all. With time running out, there was nothing the crew could do to fix things. Instead, the one working gun was handed to each actor in turn to use for their close-ups.
