Judy Dench is losing her sight People: "For any actress, it's just something that comes with the job. Before the big screen, and before filming even begins, Dame Judi Dench has to read the script. But that part of her job is proving to be difficult, says Dench, because her vision is failing. "I can't read scripts any more because of the trouble with my eyes," she tells the U.K.'s Mirror. "And so somebody comes in and reads them to me, like telling me a story." The Oscar-winning actress, 77, says she has been diagnosed with macular degeneration, a condition, characterized by damage to the retina, that can lead to blindness. Dench, whose mom also had the condition, has already undergone treatment – "they had to do these injections and I think it's arrested," she says – and will next appear in Skyfall, the next installment of the James Bond saga (her seventh 007 blockbuster). "As long as there is a possibility of working, I'm not going to retire," she says. "If I retire, nothing will work any more, and it's hard enough as it is."

Lindsay Lohan to host SNL "Lindsay Lohan was DYING to do "Saturday Night Live" again - and kickstart her comeback - so she reached out to Lorne Michaels herself to book the hosting gig ... TMZ has learned. Sources close to Lindsay tell TMZ she has always felt the "SNL" executive producer has been very fatherly towards her throughout the years. We're told LiLo has always enjoyed doing the show, but was waiting for the right time to do it again. So now that her community service is coming to an end, our sources say Lindsay called up Lorne and asked him to consider her for the show again. We're told they had multiple conversations and eventually settled on a date ... March 3. According to our sources, Lindsay feels doing "SNL" again will remind people she's an actress ... not a defendant."
OMG! There really is a ring "To celebrate his guest appearance on Saturday Night Live in NYC Saturday, Justin Timberlake hit up the show's weekly after party at Asellina in Gansevoort Park Hotel. On his arm was his fiancee Jessica Biel, who, sources tell Us Weekly, was happily flaunting her engagement bling! "Jessica was showing off her ring," the source tells Us. Biel, 29, has yet to debut her new bling in public since Timberlake, 31, popped the question over the holidays in Jackson, Wyoming. The pair have been dating on and off for four and a half years. "They were very lovey. Holding hands," another source tells Us of Biel and Timberlake's PDA at the soiree. "They kissed a few times in front of the crew."
