BABY GOT BACK - AND RONNY YU WANTS TO KILL SAM JACKSON

Cecilia Cheung Perhaps inspired by the hip-swiveling number that Bollywood choreographer and director Farah Khan staged for Shakira at the VMA Awards, Cecilia Cheung says that she's packing on the pounds.

She quit smoking and gained ten pounds, but the talking stick says that her boyfriend, Nic Tse, couldn't be happier. "He forces me to eat sometimes," the emaciated actress said in a phone interview.

If Nic's a chubby chaser he's got a long way to go with Cecilia, who last weighed in at an astonishing 12 ounces, but I predict lots of feeder fun as Cecilia joins the ranks of the SSBBW's.

Meanwhile, Ronny Yu reveals the real reason he didn't direct SNAKES ON A PLANE in an interview on The Slug. Apparently, he wanted Samuel L. Jackson to die during the movie. He says:

"If I'm allowed the creative freedom, then I'll do it a little differently with Samuel L. Jackson. I'll make him more of a surprise for the audience. ... He can be a cool guy, but kill off the cool guy, so people hate those snakes. Rather than have the normal hero come save the day, I think the audience wants to see something a little bit different, unpredictable. Of course, working with a studio you have to follow what they set down, what their rules are."

So he left. And is there any doubt that the madman behind FREDDIE VS. JASON, BRIDE OF CHUCKIE and WARRIORS OF VIRTUE could have made a better SNAKES ON A PLANE? Not from where I'm sitting.
