Magazine apologizes for misquoting Zellweger

Though she turned out to be right, Renee Zellweger never said she was the best candidate for this year's best supporting actress Oscar for her role in Cold Mountain.

The Austrian magazine News has apologized for falsely quoting Zellweger as saying, "I've certainly earned the award. Last year I was nominated for Chicago but I left empty-handed. I think this year Hollywood will be fair."

The magazine said it did not take part in an interview with Zellweger.

Spokeswoman says Roy walking again

BERLIN - Five months after he was mauled by a tiger, illusionist Roy Horn of Siegfried & Roy was able to walk again with the help of a wheeled walking aid, a spokeswoman for the duo said Tuesday.

Horn, 59, managed to walk 558 paces last week with the assistance of the device, spokeswoman Claudia Dressler said from Munich, adding that he has "strong willpower" and is training intensively.

Horn was mauled by a 300-pound white tiger on Oct. 3, during his stage act in Las Vegas. The tiger attacked Horn during a sold-out performance at the Mirage hotel-casino.

Horn's partner, German-born magician Siegfried Fischbacher, has downplayed Horn's injuries from the attack.
