A whole lotta yummo comin' your way
Woot! Aussie hotness Hugh Jackman stepped out for an early morning workout in Sydney, Australia this morning with his equally hawt personal trainer in order to work on his physical fitness at Bondi Beach … which of course means, feast your eyes on a few amazing photos of a wet and half-nekkid Hugh:
Damn … I just love it when Hugh Jackman has to workout. Not only does it do his body good but I can think of certain parts of my body that also benefit from seeing pics of him in a mostly nekkid state. My brain, for example, is stimulated with images of the human form … my eyes are grateful for the sight as well. What parts of YOUR body are inspired by these images of Hugh Jackman? (Keep it clean, y’all ;)

Pete Wentz blogs an announcement
Father-to-be and Fall Out Boy bassist Pete Wentz, who was due to appear live on CNN‘s Larry King Live show last night to discuss his opposition to the passage of Proposition 8 in California, had to cancel his appearance and immediately posted an announcement on his official websites (HERE and HERE) explaining why he was unable to appear on Larry King Live:
due to breaking news and scheduling conflicts i will not be appearing on larry king live tonight, though i am a big fan of the show and look forward to appearing on it in the future. i also look forward to the chance to continue supporting civil rights and speaking out against the passing of proposition 8 and others like it (im looking at you arizona and florida) whenever and wherever i can.
Due to the timing of this “breaking news” it is believed that Pete pulled out of his Larry King Live appearance POSSIBLY due to the fact that his heavily pregs wife Ashlee Simpson went into labor and MAY have given birth to their first child:
At this point, there is no further information or confirmation at all that Ashlee gave birth … or even went into labor … but it seems very likely that that was the “scheduling conflict” that came up at the last minute. Here’s hoping that things are going well for Ashl33n and that I can soon announce the birth of their bouncing baby boy or girl.

So that's where that fugly thing went!
Katie Holmes has, on occasion, been accused of stealing style tips from famous friend Victoria Beckham but it looks like she has moved on to stealing style points from someone else … Vicki B‘s hubby David Beckham. Check out this new photo of Katie stepping out in NYC this week sporting a white knit hat that looks awfully familiar to ardent Becks fans:
With her woollen hat and jeans combination in chilly New York, now that Katie Holmes has abandoned copying one Beckham, it seems she hell bent on style-stalking another. The actress’s winter white woollen hat owes more a nod to the husband of her A-list pal Posh. After a long period of stepping out in looks more often associated with her friend Posh, although their friendship seems to have cooled of late, she now appears to be taking style tips from the star footballer. Katie wore the David Beckham style look as she arrived at the theatre on Broadway for another performance of play All My Sons. Teamed with a belted co-ordinated cardigan, faded jeans and ankle boots, Katie looked ready for cooler weather.
LOL! I can absolutely envision Katie Holmes rummaging thru the Beckhams‘ closets on one of her visits to their LA home looking for old articles of clothing she can pilfer and make her own. If she had knicked this knit hat from their home around the time of her “pregnancy” I would’ve guessed that she prolly smuggled it out of the manse inside her fake baby bump ;) Mebbe Posh hates this hat so much that she gave it to Katie so that Becks couldn’t wear it any longer? That makes sense. Truth be told, I don’t really love this hat when Becks wears it so I really don’t care for it on Katie. I would love for her to pass it off to hubby Tom Cruise just for the mere enjoyment I would get from seeing that little man wear a ridic hat like this in public.

I’m still over the moon that Aly and Alexis are going to have a baby together … it will be the first child born of two Buffyverse actors … it will truly be the holiest of holys ;)

Hawt 'Milk' men walk the red carpet
Sean Penn and his Milk men James Franco, Emile Hirsch, Josh Brolin among others came out to the Academy Of Motion Pictures Arts And Sciences building in Beverly Hills, CA last night for the Hollywood premiere of his new film Milk (the biopic of San Fran’s first openly gay elected politician Harvey Milk). You may recall that Milk already premiered in San Francisco, CA last month but it was high time for the party to make it’s way to LA. Here are a few pics from last night’s red carpet arrivals:
Sean Penn was almost 20 minutes late for the Beverly Hills screening of his new movie, Milk. Living up to his reputation for not being a huge fan of the press, the Hollywood star arrived at the screening at the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences at the last possible minute, ignoring TV crews. Sean’s young co-star Emile Hirsch seemed to be following in his footsteps – the Speed Racer star spoke to just a handful of reporters before disappearing inside. However, their co-stars Josh Brolin and James Franco were more willing to chat about the movie, which is based on the true life story of Harvey Milk (played by Sean), San Francisco’s first openly gay leader, who was slain 30 years ago. James said making the film had been a thrill. “It was incredible to be able to shoot in the exact places where this history was taking place, it was inspiring just as an actor and a special thing, a unique experience,” he said. The film is generating plenty of Oscar buzz, but director Gus Van Sant was reluctant to talk of possible Academy Award nominations. “I hope there’s such a thing,” was all he’d say. Stars who attended the LA premiere included Winona Ryder, Vanessa Redgrave and Elizabeth Banks. Relatives of Harvey Milk were also at the screening and Sean’s wife Robin Wright Penn was there to support her Oscar-winning hubby.
I’m very bummed at the timing of last night’s premiere. I was invited to attend but was unable to make it because of my flight home to Detroit. In any event, I deffo plan to see this film as soon as I can. Harvey Milk was a pioneer who paved the way for gays and lesbians to be represented in political office. To think that all these years after his death we are still fighting for equal rights for the GLBT community isn’t surprising, it’s just a shame that he can’t be here to join the struggle.
While reminds me, DON’T FORGET that tomorrow is the National Day of Protest Against Marriage Discrimination in all 50 States:
Head over to Join the Impact and find out where YOUR protest rally is being held in your State and find out what YOU can do to Stand Up for Marriage Equality.

JG refutes romantic involvement with Miley Cyrus
Justin Gaston walked the red carpet with a Cyrus at the 42nd Annual CMA Awards this week but it wasn’t the Cyrus you might’ve guessed. Justin accompanied papa Billy Ray Cyrus down the red carpet, letting 15-year old Miley Cyrus walk the red carpet alone … which was very apropos since Justin was telling anyone who asked that he IS NOT Miley‘s boyfriend and is merely a “Cyrus family friend”. Uh huh. Here’s a lovely pic of Justin and Billy Ray (looking particularly tragic in this ridic outfit … especially in comparison to Justin in all his beauty) mugging for the cameras on the CMA Awards red carpet this week:
Miley Cyrus has been spotted everywhere recently with model and aspiring singer Justin Gaston, but the 20-year-old former “Nashville Star” contestant denies having a relationship with the 15-year-old Disney star. “Oh, just family friend, you know,” Gaston said at the CMA Awards on Wednesday night. “I met Billy Ray on the show and just became friends with the whole family. And they’re such a great family,” Gaston continued. “I moved (to LA) two years ago and started a modeling career and that’s kind of just to break into the music business and everything.” Justin may have an affinity for older women. The model/singer commented on fellow CMA attendee Nicole Kidman, telling Access, “She’s beautiful, especially in person. Maybe I’ll meet her,” he added.
And mebbe he’ll move in with her and start hanging out almost exclusively with her daughter Sunday Rose? Nah … JG might like ‘em young but I think that might be taking things a bit too far … besides, I think he’s having too much fun hanging out with little Miss Miley. After the jump, check out a photo that shows just how much fun the couple likes to have together … More »
Jennifer Aniston and John Mayer were uncharacteristically snapped out and about together in NYC last night just about a day after Aniston‘s Vogue magazine coverstory hit the Internets. You may recall that Jen talked very openly about her new love affair with John in the mag as well as her lingering feelings towards ex-hubby Brad Pitt and his new wife-like partner Angelina Jolie. It would appear that confession is good for the soul because this Mayerston public appearance seems a little out of the ordinary. Here are pics of Jen and John making their way out of the NYC eatery La Esquina late last night:
Days after Jennifer Aniston declared she’s “lucky in love,” she joined her beau, John Mayer, for a romantic dinner date in NYC. The pair met up at Manhattan hotspot La Esquina late Thursday night. Aniston, 39 – dressed in black boots, skinny jeans and a bomber jacket – and Mayer, 30, couldn’t keep their hands off each other, according to a witness. After Mayer settled the bill, they headed over to GoldBar – but not before Aniston sweetly signed autographs and hugged a few fans. At the club, the couple hit the dance floor well into the morning.
Well now … clearly Mayerston are hellbent on giving their second shot a love a fighting chance. I mean … matching black outfits and everything. They are NOT effing around this time. From the beginning, I really liked these two together and was pretty bummed that they decided to call it quits over the summer. To be honest, I never thought they’d actually get back together so I’m glad to see that they proved me wrong. I suppose I should’ve known that the couple might amp up their visibility after Jen‘s Vogue interview came out. As I said, it is very uncharacteristic for Jen to venture out in public with a romantic interest and not try and shun the cameras. This smiling new, photo-friendly Jennifer Aniston is a nice surprise. We’ll have to see if she keeps it up. I’m pretty sure John Mayer is up for happily embracing the paps. Do y’all think that this is the beginning of a serious LTR for the couple?

To the bitter end
Here are a few photos of Brooke Shields (as Wendy Healy) and David Norona (as Salvador Rosa) filming scenes for the new-defunct NBC series Lipstick Jungle at Rockefeller Center on Fifth Avenue in NYC this week. It’s unclear exactly how Brooke got word that her show was being canceled but I suppose it could’ve gone down kinda like this … ACTION!
Poor Brooke. I understand she really loved this role and this series so I imagine that she is prolly not in the best mood these days. Ah well, if NBC really wants to make it up to her they could revive her show Suddenly Susan and bring her back to the network. I’m sure Kathy Griffin would love it if that happened, too! Brooke Shields is a trooper … I’m sure she’ll land on her feet again soon.

Show their dislike of the "fur tramps" and the "fur hags from hell"
Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen were on hand for an in-store booksigning at Borders book store in Westwood, CA last night signing copies of their new book Influence for the waiting throngs of fans. Unfortch for the twins, their fans weren’t the only folks who showed up for last night’s in-store appearance. A group of protesters from People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals came out for the event to protest the girls’ love of fur. Here are a couple pics of the Olsens trying to make their getaway and some of the protesters displaying their signs:
Man, PETA is showing no signs that they have any plans to let the Olsen twins off the hook for their love of fur. It’s been a few months since PETA launched their Meet the Trollsen Twins website and it looks like the anti-Olsen campaign is still going strong. I understand that the twins were targeted at their NYC in-store appearance a couple of weeks ago as well. Now, I’m not the biggest fan of the Olsens (well, I’m not much of a fan at all) but even I feel bad that the little munchkins are bearing the brunt of this anti-fur campaign alone. Meh, I’m sure I’ll get over it, tho.

L. Ron in London
Lindsay Lohan, who confesses to Harper’s Bazaar magazine this month that she is INDEED in a relationship with Samantha Ronson, has made her way to London, England this week and happened to bring along with her, you guessed it, Samantha Ronson. The ladies who have been inseparable since, like, forever managed to cause a mild stir upon arrival in England … here are a few pics:
Almost as soon as L. Ron touched down in Londontown they hit the streets in search of supplies to get themselves situated … and they happened to do so lookin’ adorably cute together all the while. No word on what brings the happy couple to London but I predict that Linds may be doing some promo work for her new leggings line while they are in Europe. Hopefully the ladies will be able to sneak in some alone-time together as well. Treat ‘em well, London!
