What a rascal. Director Tim Burton couldn’t keep his lips to himself, and prying eyes were there to capture the moment.

Pics seen on UK’s Daily Mail website show Burton kissing a blonde woman who is most definitely not his long-term love Helena Bonham Carter.

The longtime Johnny Depp collaborator, 55, was photographed leaving a London theater with said woman and laying one on her on the street.

Burton left his first wife, German artist Lena Gieseke for actress Lisa Marie ( Mars Attacks!) before taking up with Bonham Carter, his leading lady in 2001’ s Planet of the Apes and the mother of his two children..

Surprise role

Emile Hirsch had his (unprotected) fun, and now he’s going to be a daddy, reports The New York Daily News . The Into the Wild actor had a one-night stand about five months ago with a woman said to be from (where else?) Florida. What part of the Sunshine State is unclear. We’re thinking SoBe, maybe?

The D-word

The brief marriage (1997-99) of Brooke Shields and Andre Agassi was apparently destined to fail. On the Today show Thursday, guest co-host Shields was chatting with Laura Wasser, author of It Doesn’t Have To Be That Way: How To Divorce Without Destroying Your Family Or Bankrupting Yourself, and admitted the split got nasty. Though it could have been worse had the tennis star and actress-model had children. Shields recounted that Agassi told her: “Be happy that we don’t have children, or I would not have made this easy for you.” Shields, 48, has been happily married to producer Chris Henchy since 2001; they have two daughters.

Baby on the brain

Hillary Clinton wants to be a grandma already. Former first daughter Chelsea Clinton, 33, tells Glamour that she and her husband, Marc Mezvinsky, (son of former Iowa congressman Ed Mezvinsky) are hoping to start a family — “God willing.” She adds that her mother asks about their baby plans “every single day.” As for dad Bill Clinton, Showbizspy.com reports the ex president is not a big fan of his son in law, a former Wall Street biz whiz. Sources tell the site he thinks Marc is in the marriage for the wrong reasons and that Bill Clinton would “rather be around a brainy guy like Jesse Eisenberg.”

Singer’s journey

Anastacia’s struggle with breast cancer has been brutal, but what hasn’t killed the singer made her stronger, she told the UK talk show Lorraine. The 45-year-old, Chicago- born Anastacia Lyn Newkirk recently underwent a double mastectomy, told British talk show Lorraine, she feels the stress of the disease has lifted.

“Any journey down that road is not easy for a female, period,” she says. “But you just gotta do what you gotta do, and I’m cancer free forever — breast cancer free, at least, and that has been all worth the struggle.”

On Tuesday, the It’s A Man’s World crooner announced on Facebook she was still recovering from a double mastectomy after being diagnosed with cancer in 2003 after going in for breast reduction surgery.

    From ‘Downton Abbey,’ Dan Stevens goes to being a most welcome ‘Guest’

    It’s been almost two years since Dan Stevens’ beloved Downton Abbey character, Matthew Crawley, met with an untimely end, and some die-hard fans of the PBS costume drama still may not quite be over it. But for the 31-year-old British actor, Crawley’s tragic death marked a kind of rebirth – or at least a chance to strike out in some very different directions as an actor.
