ICTORIA BECKHAM

sleeps in the nude.

Why?

David Beckham.

In the new Elle magazine, however, she doesn't imply there's much sleeping going on.

"I'm going to be naked if I'm getting in bed with him every night!" she says.

As for why she went back on the road with the newly reunited Spice Girls, Victoria says, "I wanted my children to see that Mummy was a pop star. It was the last opportunity for them to stand in a crowd full of people screaming for the Spice Girls."

Regarding her "talent," Victoria says she was never a "natural."

"It became very obvious from the start that I was never going to be the best singer or the best dancer or the best actress," she says. "You know, I've never been that good at anything, to be completely honest."

Hence, the worldwide fame.

"I'm so camp!" she says. "I'm such a gay man trying to get out."

Ah, we can see the headlines: "David Beckham Sleeps with Closeted Gay Man."

Is rehab next?

Woody Harrelson and Owen Wilson were apparently out to show Peruvians that they aren't your average high-maintenance movie stars.

Local celebrity gossip program "Magaly TeVe" aired video Wednesday night of the two actors deep in Peru's Andes bathing in an irrigation ditch wearing nothing but their boxer shorts. It showed the pair pouring handfuls of water over themselves under the highland sun.

Harrelson and Wilson were reportedly visiting a local orphanage they support near Cuzco, the ancient Incan capital.

Three-card Montez?

Attorney Brian Schall, who claims that Vanessa Hudgens ("High School Musical" 's Gabriella Montez) owes him $150,000 in legal fees, can proceed with his suit against the teen star, L.A. Superior Court Judge Tricia Ann Bigelow ruled Wednesday.

Bigelow said she or a jury should decide whether the actress acted within a reasonable period of time when she waited two years to repudiate a contract she signed when she was 16.

Schall filed a breach-of-contract lawsuit in September that said Hudgens agreed in October 2005 to pay him 5 percent of her earnings in exchange for his legal representation.

Vanessa earned more than $5 million with his help, Schall says in his suit.

Troy Bolton's girlfriend disavowed the agreement on Oct. 9. She turns 19 later this month.

Her attorney argued that state law provides that a contract with a minor can be voided before the person turns 18 or "within a reasonable time afterward."

Hayes F. Michel, an attorney for Schall, argued in court papers that Hudgens claims "she was too young and innocent to be bound by a legal contract . . . and was preyed upon by the very lawyer who helped her make enough money to pay her current lawyers."

They'll sing before the judge on Jan. 15.

Scripts written before the strike

* The Hollywood Reporter says Xzibit, Amanda Peet and Billy Connolly are joining the cast of the new "X-Files" movie.

Xzibit and Peet will reportedly play fellow FBI agents, but it's a secret. The movie starts shooting this month in Vancouver.

* Next up from the Judd Apatow comedy factory (is he the Preston Sturges of our time?) is "Year One," a comedy of biblical proportion.

The Hollywood Reporter says that Harold Ramis will direct from his own story and Jack Black and Michael Cera are set to star. Also in the cast are Oliver Platt, David Cross, Vinnie Jones, Juno Temple and Christopher Mintz-Plasse, who made his film debut as McLovin in this summer's "Superbad."

* Kelly Preston and Ron Eldard will play the parents of a date-raped daughter who become involved in the suicide of her ex-boyfriend, in a Lifetime original movie of Jodi Picoult's "The Tenth Circle."

The movie is to start shooting soon for a premiere in 2008.

* The Hollywood Reporter says that Johnny Depp may follow up "Sweeney Todd" by replacing Leonardo DiCaprio (who left for Martin Scorsese's adaptation of "Shutter Island") in Michael Mann's film about crime in the Great Depression.

If a meeting this week between Mann and Depp goes well, the actor will play bank robber John Dillinger in the film, set to start shooting in March in Chicago.

Tattbits

* TMZ.com reports that Gary Collins has been sentenced to 96 hours in jail.

Of course, depending on where in L.A. he serves the time it could be 96 minutes or 96 seconds.

Collins must also pay restitution to the victims of his DUI-caused accident, enroll in an 18-month alcohol education program and attend at least two A.A. meetings per week.

The actor/host/game show contestant was arrested in October after the car he was too drunk to drive crashed into one driven by an 89-year-old man. That man is reportedly still in the hospital.

* Billboard.com and Sirius Satellite's "OutQ" report that Madonna's next studio album will be called "Licorice."

What a great title for a Britney Spears album. Because, you know, she's not that anisette.

* Big Brother may be watching you but a new movie allows you to watch Big Brother watching.

Adam Rifkin's "Look" is a film shot entirely from the perspective of surveillance cameras.

For the low-budget movie Rifkin placed his cameras wherever surveillance cameras already were or would likely be: above ATMs, around high-school grounds and in department store changing rooms (yes, it's legal in some states).

Hey, for every shoplifter caught, you get 100 hours of Internet voyeur video of someone trying on a sweater. *
