Diff’rent Strokes star Gary Coleman died today (Friday) after failing to come out of a coma. He was 42.

The diminutive actor had been rushed to hospital in Provo, Utah, on Wednesday after suffering what his family called "a serious medical problem" after falling at home and hitting his head.

He later fell into a coma and was on life support after suffering an intracranial haemorrhage.

He was pulled off life support Friday morning – the decision reportedly made by his wife Shannon Price – and passed away with loved ones at his side.

The distinctive actor, who lived in Santaquin, about 55 miles south of Salt Lake City, Utah, had been through a troubling spell in his life, including a long string of health problems.

He has been battling kidney disease since his childhood – the disease hampering his growth to 4ft 8ins – and twice had kidney transplants in 1973 and 1984. He required daily dialysis in his everyday life.

He also had heart surgery last year and was hospitalized earlier this year having had a seizure on the set of The Insider.

Robin Hood star Russell Crowe has revealed that he didn’t wear tights for his role as the mythical bandit in director Ridley Scott’s new flick.

In an interview with the Sunday Mirror, the 46-year-old actor said he did not follow in the footsteps of actor Errol Flynn, who wore tights for the role in the original 1938 movie.

Crowe told the UK newspaper: "I don’t wear tights [in the movie]. According to our research, they weren’t invented for another 300 years anyway. It just didn’t make sense.”

Elin Nordegren not initially attracted to Woods, book claims


A new book has revealed details about the budding relationship between Elin Nordegren and Tiger Woods when they first started dating, including the suggestion that the Swedish model did not think the golfer was appealing initially.

Tiger: The Real Story by Steve Helling recounts the couple’s courtship, including the fact that when they began dating Nordegren had a Swedish forklift driver boyfriend.

"Elin Nordegren was not the type of young woman to date Tiger Woods, at least not at first," People quotes Helling as writing. “She really didn’t find Tiger attractive; he simply wasn’t her type."

Helling’s book suggests Woods liked the thrill of the chase: "The challenge of the pursuit appealed to Tiger … The more Elin declined, the more insistent Tiger became."

It was only after five requests from the sportsman that Nordegren agreed to go out with him.

The couple’s first date was a “low-key” dinner and movie and by the second time they stepped out together Nordegren was reportedly “surprised” to find herself liking the sportsman. Elin Nordegren and baby-2

‘I’m homeless and unemployed,’ admits Evangeline Lilly


Lost star Evangeline Lilly wears a disguise and admits she is now “homeless and unemployed”.

The 30-year-old actress revealed she has neither a job nor a permanent home since she finished filming the hit US drama.

“I did live in Hawaii and now I am essentially homeless. I’m a gypsy a bit, living out of my suitcase, and I’m unemployed,” she told US chat show host Jimmy Fallon.

“I was filling out a form at the dentist the other day and I realised when they said ‘put your address and your occupation’ that I was homeless and unemployed.”

Lilly, who has starred as Kate Austen is Lost since the show began in 2004, was perhaps keen to hide her identity as she changed into a cropped wig at the end of Fallon’s show.

Dressed in a brown satin playsuit, the TV star let her long locks loose during her interview.

But she was later caught on camera wearing a curly blonde hairpiece, which fellow guest Kenan Thompson had worn while performing a song on the chat show.

Lilly’s disguise came after she told Fallon how she would try to hide her identity as a teenager.
