(Newser) – Nicole Kidman doesn’t miss being married to Tom Cruise, Marie Claire reports. “I felt it was my job to put on a beautiful dress and be seen and not heard,” the actress told Easy Living. “I felt I became a star only by association. We would go to the Oscars and I would think, ‘I’m here to support him.’” Elsewhere:

  • Poor, dumped Lindsay Lohan can’t even get ex Harry Morton—who bought her an engagement ring—to cop to dating her, the New York Post reports. “I didn’t really date her. I really didn’t,” the Hard Rock Café heir told Inked, later ‘fessing up that it’s “embarrassing being known for that.”
  • Simon Cowell may judge the American Idol contestants, but he doesn’t listen to their albums: “I think it’d be odd if I was driving around Beverly Hills with the roof off playing a Taylor Hicks album,” he tells the Hollywood Reporter. “It’s just too weird.”
  • 2009 is “the year of Gary Coleman”—at least according to the director of his upcoming film, Midgets vs. Mascots, who tells the Huffington Post he envisions a comeback for the actor on the level of Mickey Rourke's.
