NEW YORK - Mark Ruffalo and his wife, Sunrise Coigney, will add another little one to their brood this fall.


It will be their third child, publicist Marla Farrell said Friday. They have a 5-year-old son, Keen, and a 1-year-old daughter, Bella.


The 39-year-old actor, currently starring in "Zodiac," and Coigney, who owns a boutique in Los Angeles, were married in 2000.


Ruffalo's resume includes such films as "13 Going on 30," "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind" and "You Can Count on Me." He will next be seen in the drama "Margaret," slated for release later this year.


NEW YORK - Next up for Salma Hayek is a wedding - and a baby carriage.


The 40-year-old actress is engaged to businessman Francois-Henri Pinault and is pregnant with their first child, her spokeswoman, Cari Ross, said Friday in a statement. No further details were provided.


The Mexico-born Hayek has starred in films such as "Frida," "Spy Kids 3-D: Game Over" and "After the Sunset." She is one of the executive producers of ABC's "Ugly Betty," in which she recently guest starred as a two-faced magazine editor.


Pinault is chairman and chief executive officer of the luxury goods company PPR SA, which owns high-end labels such as Gucci, Yves Saint Laurent, Balenciaga and Stella McCartney.


Hayek received an Oscar nomination for her role in 2002's "Frida."


LONDON - Kate Winslet was awarded substantial libel damages Friday after a British magazine wrongly stated that she had visited a diet doctor.


The 31-year-old actress, known for her criticism of excessive dieting, wasn't at London's High Court for the hearing on an article published last month by women's magazine Grazia.


Winslet's lawyer, Rachel Atkins, said the story wrongly stated that Winslet had sought the help of California- based Chinese herbalist Yi Pan for her weight, despite vowing not to bow to Hollywood pressure on actresses to be skinny.


Atkins said Winslet had visited Pan for a neck injury.


Grazia printed an apology in its March 5 issue, saying it was "very happy to set the record straight."


Winslet, a five-time Oscar nominee, said in a statement that she was delighted by the outcome, adding that the magazine had apologized to her in full.


"I am not a hypocrite," she said. "I have always been, and shall continue to be, honest when it comes to body/weight issues. I feel very strongly that ‘curves' are natural, womanly and real."


Lawyers for Winslet said she would be donating the unspecified but "substantial" damages payment to charity. Winslet has received Oscar nominations for her roles in "Little Children," "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind," "Iris," "Titanic" and "Sense and Sensibility."
