Kellan Lutz is a doll.  We mean that in the most endearing way possible.  Yes, he is also studly, but give him a red nose, on the step-and-repeat, during the Red Nose Day benefit, and he will ham it up for the crowd without a second thought.

How many hotties do you know that can forego composure, for a good cause, and look good doing it?

The Hercules star was joined on the carpet by the likes of Rose Byrne, Billy Eichner, Cheryl Burke, Elizabeth Moss, Jeff Dye, Jill Kargman, Laura Gomez, Michael Che, Sawyer Fredericks, Stephen Merchant, Nicole Scherzinger and a worked-out Josh Groban. Read the rest of this entry »

Robert Pattinson, Chloe Sevigny and Natasha Lyonne attend the Heaven Knows What NY MoMA premiere

By all accounts, getting the likes of 29-year-old Robert Pattinson to attend your MoMA premiere is a coup! It trumps every other event scheduled on the same evening, at the same time.

Sorry ABT, Sigourney Weaver in hot pink Escada ain’t making the cut.

Throw in indie stars Chloe Sevigny, Dree Hemingway and Natasha Lyonne, who joined the Twilight star at Benny and Josh Safdie’s “Heaven Knows What” NY premiere, last night, and you, by far, have aced solidifying the “must cover” event of the night. Read the rest of this entry »

What better opportunity to get a few shots of the writer/actress/director/producer maven than her special day.

Our efforts were rewarded, after a few hours of waiting, with a quick glimpse of her aboard her SUV heading back to her trailer, busily addressing her hand-held device. Read the rest of this entry »

Becky Ann Baker films Girls in Riverdale

Becky Ann Baker took to the streets of Riverdale to film the much lauded HBO series “Girls,” yesterday. Well, actually, it was more like a conservation space down by the Hudson, but the trailers were straight smack on the city streets of Riverdale.

She was joined by two “day players” who we did not obtain names for.  We did inquire but were told they were merely “day players.” (Don’t hesitate to drop us an email or leave us a message with their id’s if you recognize them – thank you very much!) Read the rest of this entry »
