The Dredge: John Travolta just flew to Ireland in his own plane

And then went for tea. All the very best of the day’s celebrity dirt.

EVERY WEEKDAY MORNING, rounds up the best of the day’s celebrity dirt – from the top to the very bottom.

#J-TRAV: John Travolta hopped behind the controls of his own plane and flew it to Ireland at the weekend. Then he flew it away again.

Travolta also strapped his two kids in for the trip to Shannon Airport. They (and their nine-person entourage) bedded down at the Adare Manor hotel in Limerick, where he went fishing and “relaxed with afternoon tea”. (Irish Independent)

Photos of the actor with two hotel employees show his beard still looks like a tiny mammal gripping his waxy chin.

#TWEET SURRENDER: Following his potty-mouthed meltdown at a Daily Mail reporter, Alec Baldwin has sworn off Twitter forever.

Why? Because he went to James Gandolfini’s funeral and James Gandolfini wasn’t on Twitter, and Twitter makes you vulnerable to assassination. Or something.

I went to Jimmy Gandolfini’s funeral, and when I was there I realised Jimmy Gandolfini didn’t have Twitter. Jimmy Gandolfini was so beloved as a person, and he was so admired as an actor, and he didn’t give a f*** about social media [...] It’s just another chink in your armor for people to come and kill you.

Righto, Alec. (Vanity Fair)

#CHAT ROULETTE: Irish Game of Thrones star Aidan Gillen (also of Love/Hate and The Wire) is mad into ChatRoulette. You know, that site where you log on and talk to random members of the internet, many of whom are masturbating.

He told the Irish Daily Mirror:

Have you ever been on Chat Roulette? Fifty percent of it is guys – and you can’t see their face – jerking off. But then there will be a group of people at a party or an old lady in Italy or wherever – you just stop where you choose to stop.

You should Rickroll the old ladies in Italy, Aidan. Just saying.

#CHAVRIL: Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger got married wearing black. Because Avril will ALWAYS be a moody teenager, even though she’s 28.

Do you want to see their wedding photo? Of course you do. Chad Kroeger looks like a waxwork in it.

Chad: I’ve been holding this smile for two hours now. I can’t feel my face. Avril: Shut up, loser. (Pic Hello Canada)

And the rest of the day’s dirt…

  • Lindsay Lohan hates her own movie. (ONTD)
  • Jay-Z and Beyoncé bought some ridiculous presents for baby North West. (The Sun)
  • 50 Cent went for a foot massage, and requested that people do not hate. (Twitter)
  • Prince Charles posed for photos on the set of Doctor Who. (Buzzfeed)
  • Justin Bieber wore socks with sandals. (The Sun)
