Drew Barrymore has spoken of her love for baby daughter Olive while introducing the little girl to the world. The 37-year-old actress is seen cuddling Olive, her first child with her art consultant husband Will Kopelman, beaming with proud delight as she looks into her daughter's eyes. And in an accompanying interview with People magazine Drew said she was not prepared for how much her life would change once she had a baby.

She said: "I couldn't eat or sleep for two weeks, I was just so nervous! You have the highest highs and yet you're facing the biggest fear of, 'How do I keep someone alive?'"

But with the help of Will, Drew was able to provide a loving and nurturing home for her baby to be brought into.

She added: "I really wanted a wonderful traditional home for my kid. Will comes from a strong family, he provides a strong family ... It just makes me so emotional because it's like a miracle."

Drew recently revealed the meaning behind Olive's name, telling Ellen DeGeneres during an interview that she and Will came up with the name after reading a baby manual. She said: "I never would have guessed that would have been the name. But I was reading a book with my husband. I was three months pregnant and they said your baby is the size of an olive, and that was it. We never looked back!" The Charlie's Angels actress became a first-time mother after giving birth to Olive in September, three months after marrying Will.

Broke Lohan's possessions to be auctioned off

Things keep getting worse and worse for Lindsay Lohan. The 26-year-old actress now faces having some of her prized possessions sold off because she can't pay her bills.

The troubled star has fallen behind on monthly payments to a storage company and now owes around $16,000, which could lead to items inside her locker -- including designer clothes, family heirlooms and 'potentially embarrassing' articles -- being sold off at an auction if the bill isn't paid by the end of this month.

The account has been branded delinquent and the locker can't be opened until the balance is paid off in full.

According to gossip website TMZ, the Liz & Dick star, whose bank accounts have been frozen by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) over unpaid taxes of $233,904 for 2009 and 2010, has asked friends and family to help out with the payment but so far no one has agreed.

While the actress -- who also owes around £8,000 in rent for her Beverly Hills mansion -- was recently given £100,000 from pal Charlie Sheen to help pay her tax bill, the actor recently complained she hasn't even said thank you. He said: "She got shorted and I found out, so I said, 'Here'. I'm still waiting for a text to say 'Thank you'. Anything you know?"

Additionally, the Mean Girls star -- whose probation was revoked yesterday after she was formally charged with lying to police -- is also said to have enlisted assistance from her younger sister Ali Lohan, 18, to help sell some of her designer clothes to raise more money.

To infinity and beyond!

As a self-confessed petrol head, Jeremy Clarkson is known for his love of flash motors with powerful engines.

But the Top Gear presenter displayed his boyish streak, when he was spotted driving the spitting image of a toy car.

The 52-year-old presenter looked like Buzz Lightyear from the classic animated film Toy Story as he took a spin around London's Mayfair in the vehicle.

Wearing a bizarre helmet-style contraption that seemed to be connected to the car's body, Jeremy looked positively futuristic as he filmed a scene for the latest series of his popular BBC 2 show Top Gear.

The sight of the presenter in the car will come as a surprise to fans of the programme who are used to seeing the presenter driving around at breakneck speed. However, the two blue racing stripes travelling up and down the car's shell could mean the little motor is more powerful than it looks. But it would seem his passion for cars comes in all shapes and sizes as he appeared only too happy to road test the space-age style vehicle.
