Mike Myers during last month's ,; Oscars ceremony, the Los Angeles Times reported. During the March 25 telecast, Myers presented the winners for best sound and sound editing while belittling the importance , of the two categories. The next day, one of the gover- • nors of the academy's sound branch wrote pres- . ident Robert Rehme to complain, calling Myers'-,, comments an insult, according to the newspaper. Academy guidelines prohibit presenters from being dismissive of any of the categories fop, which Oscars are presented. Dear Diary: I can act, I can act! NEW YORK — Actress Renee Zellweger kept' an eye on her day job until recently. The star of "Bridget Jones' Diary" says that even after a string of movies including "Jerry Maguire," "Me, Myself & Irene" and "The Bachelor," she lacked confidence in her acting ability. Zellweger says she wasn't sure she was going to be able to make a living as an actress until she won a Golden Globes ^ci i wcrcD " award in January for her role ZELLWEGER as a deluded soap-opera fan in "Nurse Betty" .. • "It was a very profound moment," she tells;! Newsweek in its April 16 issue. "It made rrt&;" realize that I had a reason to be there that- night, that I wasn't crashing the party and ! about to be found out and shown the door." "Bridget Jones' Diary," adapted from the best-selling comic novel, opens this week. B&B owners mum on occupants COLUMBUS, Ga. — The bad news for Mamie and Garry Pound: They had to say goodbye to their house guests — Mel Gibson, Greg Kinnear, Keri Russell, Chris Klein and Madeleine Stowe. The good news: For the first time in a month, the Pounds can take showers in their own home. The Pounds and their two children moved out while the cast of "We Were Soldiers Once... And Young" filmed in Columbus and stayed in the family's bed and breakfast. "We bathed the kids in a sink and showered at the Y," Garry Pound said. "But we'd do it all over again. Every one of our rooms was booked for a month. That doesn't happen very often." Rumors flew during the shooting that the stars were in town, but the Pounds' lips were sealed. "We had to lie," said Mary Dana Knight, who helps Mamie Pound prepare meals. "We'd re-- ceive telephone calls all the time asking if Mel was staying here. We'd have to say no." The movie is currently filming in California. ADVICE Wife thinks life witli fisherman husband is crappie Dear Ann Landers: I desperately need your help. My husband retired after a 21- year, highly successful military career. He is 43 years old. He has since ^ made bass-fishing tournaments his new "profession." He is gone seven days out of every month fishing at these events. When not fishing, he works a small part-time job, takes our child to school and, on most nights, prepares dinner I work full time and pay aU the bills, except the insurance policies on my husband's "fishing toys." I feel a tremendous amount of pressure to keep ^ up with a lifestyle that we've grown accustomed to the past 19 years. Our child attends private school, we own a motor home, a new bass boat and two houses. The problem is my husband won't ANN LANDERS Creators Syndicate Inc. talk about going back to work full time and refuses to discuss our financial future. I find this very depressing and want to end our marriage. You once suggested asking yourself, "Am I better off with or without him?" Well, I did that and decided I was better off without him. My parents are both dead, and I have no one to talk to. We tried counseling a year ago. The counselor did not take me seriously He just laughed when I said, "I can't stand his fishing." Ann, this fishing thing is an addiction, like gambling. What can I do about it? — Military Retiree's Wife Dear Wife: I suggest that you see another counselor and discuss your marital dissatisfaction at length. Your husband could be doing a great many things that are a lot worse than bass fishing. A man who works part time, takes his child to school every day and prepares dinner sounds like a pretty decent guy to me. Dear Ann Landers: I was quite upset after reading the letter from the family law attorney who said DNA tests should not be done on children over the age of 2. Many men are being forced to pay child support for children who are not theirs and with whom they have no relationship. Such men are not "fathers." They are the victims of con artists with sharp attorneys. I can understand a man remaining a father to a child he has helped raise and love, but that's not always the case. Some women have sex with several men, become pregnant and then nail one of those saps to pay child support for 18 years. Sometimes the poor guy doesn't find out he's not the father for a long time. Unless DNA testing becomes mandatory at birth, a father should be entitled to find out if a child is his at any age. — The Man's Wife in Minnesota Dear Wife in Minnesota: I do not agree that DNA testing should be mandatory at birth, unless there is some serious doubt about paternity I do agree, however, if a man has no relationship with the child and questions the paternity, a DNA test can be • very valuable because it removes all doubt. Dear Ann Landers: This is for "Up ; Against It in Palatine, 111.," whose father ac- '• cused her mother of having affairs during '. their 50 years of marriage. He now has a new young girlfriend and wants to bring her to his daughter's house. Ann, the man is exhibiting classic symp- ; toms of Alzheimer's disease. My 75-year-old father accused my mother of having affairs, stealing money threatening to kiU him — ; you name it. We have since learned his be-l; havior is common in the early stages of Alzheimer's. -The man needs compassion and a doctor's ; evaluation.. — Sue in Seattle ' - •.""
