The latest news on today's hottest celebrities ...

GOLSHIFTEH FARAHANI: Actress Golshifteh Farahani says the Iranian government has banned her from returning home because she posed naked in France's Madame Le Figaro magazine.

"I was told by a Ministry of Culture and Islamic Guide official that Iran does not need any actors or artists. You may offer your artistic services somewhere else," Farahani, who lives in Paris, told Britain's Daily Telegraph newspaper.

The 28-year-old actress' film credits include "Body of Lies" and "A Separation," which is one of nine finalists this year for the Oscar for best foreign-language film.

KENNY G: Lyndie Benson-Gorelick has filed for legal separation from musician Kenny G after 20 years of marriage, Los Angeles County Superior Court records show.

TMZ said Benson-Gorelick cited "irreconcilable differences" as the reason for the split.

She and Kenny G, who are the parents of two sons, have already hired divorce lawyers, the celebrity news Web site said.

CHRIS HEMSWORTH: Chris Hemsworth's publicist told the Australian actor's wife, Spanish actress Elsa Pataky, is pregnant with their first child.

The baby is due to be born this spring, the celebrity news Web site said.

"Chris and I are ecstatic, very happy and excited," Pataky, 35, told Hola! magazine. "Since it's our first child we don't care if it's a boy or girl, our only wish is that it's healthy."

The couple married in 2010.

Hemsworth, 28, is best known for his work in "Thor."

Pataky starred in TV's "Queen of Swords" and had a supporting role in the film "Fast Five."

CINDY CRAWFORD: Kaia Gerber, the 10-year-old daughter of U.S. supermodel Cindy Crawford, is starring in an ad campaign for Versace's new line of children's clothing.

"Like her mother, Kaia has a very special gift," the fashion house said in a statement. "The camera really, really loves her."

Crawford, 45, and married to restaurant owner Rande Gerber, told the New York Daily News she was present when her daughter's ads for the new Young Versace collection were shot.

"Watching her in front of the camera was a fantastic experience," Crawford told the newspaper. "I am so proud of her."
