I'd like to know about their love lives and current projects. Jack Emory, Newark, Del. Bullock, 31, the most commercially successful of the three (commanding about $11 million a movie), has a sequel to Speed in the works and either a good friend or a new love in actor Matthew McConaughey. They've been spotted together since co-starring in/I Time to Kill but aren't explaining things. Sor- vino, 26, the most critically successful (with an Oscar for Mighty Aphrodite), worked with Friends' Lisa Kudrow on Romy & Michelle, a buddy movie due next year, and has dated offbeat director Quentin Tarantino for almost a year. And Judd, 28, who has worked with both Sorvino (in a cable flick about Marilyn Monroe) and Bullock (in A Time to Kill), is at work on Kiss the Girls. She, too, has been linked to McConaughey — in her case, while Kill was still being filmed—as well as to Lyle Lovett. When it comes to her love life, though, Judd's lips are sealed. • Where Is actor Daniel Day-Lewis? We haven't seen him since his Oscar-nominated In the Name of the Father. Mary Straub, Alsip, III. The reserved but personable Day- Lewis, 38, who has a best-actor Oscar for My Left Foot, stars in next month's drama The Crucible — and already his performance is generating Oscar talk in Hollywood screening rooms. •Tempestt Bledsoe, who grew up on Bill Cosby's old NBC sitcom, had a short-lived talk show last year. Will she host another one? Is she married? Where does she live? LaShanda Cunningham, Shreveport, La. The only engagement ring Bledsoe has is her great-grandmother's, and it's a prized possession. Happily single at 23, Bledsoe lives in New York City. She considers talking her forte, but it's unlikely she'll do it for a living again. Although her show, Tempestt, lasted longer than a slew of others that came out last fall, it was one of many under fire for questionable content. • Is fallen presidential political strategist Dick Morris registered as either a Republican or Democrat? Which other officeholders has he worked with? Louis D. Armmand Grand Forks, N.D. Among his clients were candidates of both parties, which is why Washington wags whispered about the irony of his being caught with a prostitute. We're told Morris, 48, doesn't reveal whether he's regis- teredasamember of either party. But he got his political start working for liberal New York candidates and honed his skills working for Democrats George McGovern and Eugene McCarthy before his first association with Bill Clinton, in '11. Since then Morris has worked for conservatives, too, chief among them Republican Sen. Jesse Helms. Scruples don't seem to be Morris" strong point. Morris' tattletale book Is due after the November election. • Beatlemania's back (again) with the newly released documentary video set. What have Ringo, George and Paul been doing since last year's ballyhooed reunion? Rhonda Felty, Marietta, Ga. The family concerns of Ringo Starr, 56—daughter Lee Starkey had a brain tumor removed a year ago — forced the Ringo, Paul, George and George (Martin, their producer) cancellation of his band's tour; at press time it hadn't been rescheduled. Paul McCartney, 54, is working on a new album, we're told. And George Harrison, 53, "is probably off finding himself," says a publicist for the group. The third anthology album, with cuts from The White Album, Abbey Road and Let It Be, is due this month; the eight-video (10-hour) documentary set is in stores. Just 4Vz hours ran on TV, so there's lots left to see. • Yasmlne Bleeth, the Baywatcn actress, works in the shadow of her overexposed colleague Pamela Anderson Lea. Is Bleeth married with children? Does she aspire to acting beyond Baywatcn? Robert Lewis, Chicago "Absolutely," she tells us. This is her last year as a full-time player on the hit show because Bleeth, 28, wants time for movies. She made two on her summer break, including next Sunday's ABC drama Talk to Me. She's the best part of this story about the less- than-ethical world of daytime TV talk shows, which she admits to watching occasionally. "I'm guilty. It's like rubbernecking on the freeway." Bleeth tells us she's "dating"; someday she'd like a husband and children. How's working with Lee, who brings baby Brandon to the set? "It's a pleasure. I think she's happier this year." Ay,in,] met love Helen Hunt through friends. ; Shoving off 6«yw«tcA • My brother and I just love The Simpsons. Do any of the people behind those brilliant voices have movie careers? Erin Uedel, New Castle, Del. Some do. Most are faces you wouldn't know if you saw them on the street. Best known are Julie Kavner (Marge), famous as Valerie Harper's sister on the '70s Mary Tyler Moore Show spinoff Rhoda, and Hank Azaria (bartender Moe, police chief Wiggum), whose gay houseboy role in The Birdcage was a scream. Azaria has been doing silly voices since he was a kid. "It was constant," he tells us. "It was just something I always did. I never anticipated that I could make a living at it."
