We have here two symbols for all that's desirable: good looks, immense wealth and interplanetary fame. Yet for all these temporary gifts, they are poorer than a gambler on pay day.

The news of the split caught Tinseltown by surprise, but the timing couldn't have been better for the marketing men for Bruce's latest big budget movie, Armageddon, which has been panned by critics. The film opens in America on 1 July and the high-profile and mysterious end of the marriage guarantees all eyes will be on Bruce as he launches the publicity tour. Last night, cynics in Hollywood were questioning the timing of the announcement and the involvement of Pat Kingsley, Hollywood's most powerful publicist.
