Wedding belle?

Liz Hurley is planning an Indian wedding to millionaire Arun Nayer -- and guess who she wants to give her away?

Yep, ex-boyfriend Hugh Grant, reports

"I would like to get married in India because of its rich traditions, the color and the fun people have on their wedding day," she said. "I recently attended Arun's father's marriage in Bombay and we had a great time."

A close friend of Hurley's says, "Liz wants Hugh to give her away because they remain really close friends."

Hurley spent last weekend celebrating Nayer's 40th birthday at a lavish bash in a luxury Indian hotel. She's expected to tie the knot with him once his divorce from Italian wife Valentina Pedroni is finalized.

And it might not be long before we hear the patter of tiny feet: The 39-year-old model-turned-actress says, "I am very fond of children and would like to have one more."

Faint moment ...

Vincent D'Onofrio was taken to a hospital Wednesday after fainting following a rehearsal of "Law & Order: Criminal Intent."

D'Onofrio had been rehearsing a strenuous scene including climbing before he fainted on location in Brooklyn, according to NBC Universal Television Studio, which produces the crime drama.

The 45-year-old actor, who stars in the show as police Detective Robert Goren, was not in ill health before the incident.

He was resting comfortably and was expected to be released quickly, the studio said.

Who needs money?

She's famed for being the Material Girl, but Madonna's next illustrated children's book is about how wealth is overrated.

"Lotsa de Casha" will be released next summer, the singer's publisher, Nicholas Callaway, said Wednesday.

"All the characters in the book will be animals, and Lotsa de Casha is an Italian greyhound who has all the money in the world but no happiness," said Callaway. "He thinks only of himself."

"Lotsa de Casha" will be the final installment in Madonna's five-book children's series for Callaway Editions.

She's now promoting her fourth book, "The Adventures of Abdi."

Madonna's other books are "The English Roses," "Mr. Peabody's Apples" and "Yakov and the Seven Thieves."

Snap decision ...

"Charlie's Angels" star Cameron Diaz and her pop star boyfriend Justin Timberlake snatched away a photographer's camera when he and a partner surprised them outside a ritzy hotel in Los Angeles.

Representatives for the stars said in a statement that the couple was "ambushed by two men, who jumped out of a concealed hiding place on a dark, deserted street late at night. ... Any actions by Diaz and Timberlake were merely taken in self-defense."

After a brief fracas with the photographer outside the famed Chateau Marmont on Saturday, Diaz broke free and left the scene with the camera.

The publicists said she took it in the hopes that it could be used to identify the men to authorities. They said she turned the camera over to police.

Los Angeles police Officer Sarah Faden said the department also received a complaint from one of the photographers, whose name she said she did not have, accusing the couple of battery and grand theft.

The matter remains under investigation, but no arrests or charges were actively being pursued, Faden said.
