Celebs Step Out for Independent Films

Last night was The Independent Film Project’s 22nd Annual Gotham Independent Film Awards hosted at New York City‘s famed Italian restaurant Cipriani. In addition to lesser known actors, many A-listers stepped out in support of the important film event. It was definitely a star-studded awards dinner. Emily Blunt was there with husband John Krasinski, being the cute couple they always are.

Some of our other favorite famous faces to grace the carpet? Jared Leto, sporting some majorly hot glasses, was among them. Also there were Matt Damon, Jack Black and blond stunner Lara Stone. Maybe this event usually flies under the radar, but not with such star power present!

Hot Guy of the Day: Brad Pitt

And…. he’s still got it! Hot A-lister Brad Pitt may have six kids (with longtime love Angelina Jolie) but he proved he can still do Dad’s Night Out in style last night when he hit the red carpet at the New York City premiere of Killing Them Softly. Brad and his co-stars were all smiles on the carpet last night.

We’re not sure if he’s growing that impressive facial hair for the month of November like many dudes are, or if he’s just back to the scruffy look. But when you’re Brad Pitt, you can get away with pretty much everything. In this case, that includes flecks of gray in the beard! Looking good, Brad… and landing in our hot guy of the day spot.

Naomi Watts Out & About with Her Kids

Celebrity kids make for some of the best photos! Naomi Watts‘ are no exception. The adorable boys, Samuel and Sasha, inherited their parents’ (dad is Liev Schriber) looks and fun personalities. Yesterday afternoon while Naomi strolled in NYC with her little guys, the trio was smiling and holding hands the whole time.

The little guy even stopped to stick his tongue out at the photographers, which was super-cute. Naomi was laughing and toting a massive Duane Reade (drugstore) bag. She looked like any other NYC mom… except a bit more chic! This was definitely a great celeb-kids photo opp.

Jessica Chastain Arrives at LAX For a Flight

Actress Jessica Chastain was looking celeb-cute this morning as she arrived at LAX for a flight to New York. The laid-back redhead toted a Louis Vuitton suitcase and wore jeans, boots and a peacoat for the ultimate in cross-country attire. Her hair was braided and she wore minimal makeup.

Chastain has had quite a whirlwind year, shooting multiple movies slated to hit theaters soon. She was also a Marie Claire cover girl this month. If you haven’t checked out the interview and spread, you should. This delightful actress has a very inspiring story. And we all know she has a great airport look too!

Joanna Krupa’s Mom & Ex Have Tea Together

Hmm…this isn’t something you see every day. Your ex having tea with your mother? I’m not sure how Joanna Krupa from Bravo‘s The Real Housewives of Miami felt about this, but it definitely made for an interesting photo opp yesterday. Romain Zago and Wendy Krupa stopped at LA’s The Grove to grab a cup together.

The Bravo starlet and her fiance of several years have parted ways, but her mother (whom we saw on one of this season’s episodes) seems to still have a relationship with him. The two were smiling at tea yesterday and there definitely seemed like there was no drama. I guess Joanna must be cool with this because we all know she would not let her mom do something she doesn’t like. Still, it could be potentially awkward, no?

Sarah Jessica Parker Does The School Run

It was a chilly day in NYC today but Sarah Jessica Parker and her kids were dressed for the weather.  The hands on mom walked her son James to school while he scootered alongside her.  It looks like before long James will be as tall as his mom! I can’t believe how big he’s getting.

Sarah then took her adorable twin daughters Marion and Tabitha out for a chilly walk. She looked every inch the fashionista she played on Sex and The City in her winter coat, hat and rolled up jeans.  Even SJP can make jeans and winter clothing look so cool!

Gabriel Aubry Obtains A Restraining Order Against Olivier Martinez

gabriel aubry gets restraining order against olivier martinez

This story just keeps getting more and more nasty doesn’t it!? After the violent Thanksgiving fight between Halle Berry’s ex Gabriel Aubry and her fiance Olivier Martinez, Gabriel Aubry has been granted a restraining order against Martinez.  According to TMZ Aubry is insistent that it was Martinez who instigated the fight and that security footage would prove that.

TMZ also reports that according to Aubry’s declaration Olivier had threatened to kill Aubry as he was assaulting him if Aubry didn’t agree to move to Paris. a

Gabriel claims Olivier then said, “We called the cops,” and that when they show up, “you’re going to tell them that you’re the one who attacked me, or I’m going to kill you.”

I don’t even know what to believe in this entire story right now. Here’s hoping that poor Nahla is being kept far far away from all of this.  Such a shame that two grown men can’t act like grown ups!
