Salma Hayek Receives Bambi Award

salma hayek bambi awards 2012

Earlier we saw Celine Dion triumphantly displaying her Bambi Award. Now here’s Salma Hayek with her Bambi Award. Salma reportedly won an award in the international film category. Salma’s had such a busy year, film-wise, I couldn’t even begin to guess which one she won for!

It looks like Salma traveled to Germany solo for the award. What do you think of her gown for the event? I like it, although it’s not what I would have thought Salma would pick out. She has a very eclectic sense of style, doesn’t she? Black always works, though. As usual, Salma looks gorgeous.



Diane Kruger Lights Up Champs Elysees

I honestly don’t know if Diane Kruger made it back to the States for Thanksgiving or not! Made ‘The Host‘ star and Joshua Jackson had Thanksgiving dinner before she left for Europe. Or perhaps Diane boarded a plane and high-tailed it back to the US in time for dinner yesterday. It’s possible , even if it does sound exhausting!

Here Diane is participating in the official ceremony to switch on the Christmas lights along the Champs Elysees in Paris. The lights look gorgeous, don’t they? A trip to Paris wouldn’t be a bad Christmas present! Think of the shopping you could do there.



Rihanna & Chris Brown Together For Thanksgiving

Rihanna may have just wrapped up what sounds like an exhausting week with her 777 Tour, but she didn’t stay put for long. Rihanna flew to Berlin, where Chris Brown had a performance as part of his Carpe Diem. The ‘Unapologetic’ singer tweeted:

All alone in my big ole jet!!! See u soon lover

Later Rihanna tweeted:

#Berlin #CarpeDiem

Rihanna and Chris were also photographed together at the Adiago nightclub in Berlin after his show (although I don’t have the rights to that pic). Rihanna had told journalists who accompanied her on the 777 Tour that her Thanksgiving plan was to have a “quiet” dinner with “friends.” Sounds like that’s what she did!




Katie Holmes Headed Home Solo For Thanksgiving (Video)

This is probably THE worst aspect of divorce: being apart from your kid on the holidays! Katie Holmes had already said she planned to spend Thanksgiving in Ohio with her family. One family member who wasn’t with her, however, was her daughter, Suri. Here’s Kate heading to her childhood home solo.

Suri flew to London to spend the holiday with her father. Tom Cruise was “super excited” about the visit, a source told People. I bet he was: he hasn’t seen Suri since this summer! Tom and Suri reportedly have been talking daily by phone, however.

Hot New Trailer: ‘Jack The Giant Slayer’

What’s up with the trend to take children’s fairytales and turn them into much more adult-like action stories? It was done with ‘Snow White and the Huntsman,’ ‘Hansel and Gretel Witch Hunters,’ and now ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’ has been adapted as ‘Jack the Giant Slayer’ (formerly called ‘Jack the Giant Killer‘). This adaptation looks a little scary for very little ones (under the age of six or so). Otherwise, ‘Jack the Giant Slayer’ looks like it has its fair share of humorous moments as well as action.

Something tells me they’ve laid off on the gore so it will be suitable for school-age kids and up. Nicholaus Halt stars as Jack, but Ewan McGregor looks like he has a pretty big role as one of the king’s knights. If this trailer is any indication, Ewan may just steal the show! That’s fine by me: he’s a great actor.

Gabriel Aubry Claims Tape Exonerates Him

gabriel aubry claims olivier martinez started fight

Gabriel Aubry may have been the one who was charged after getting into a fight with his ex’s fiance, Olivier Martinez. However, he says security cameras should have caught the fight on tape. Gabriel reportedly is eager for police to see the footage. He’s claiming it will prove Olivier was the one who started the fight.

I wonder why police charged Gabriel initially? He is said to have sustained  broken rib, cuts to the face, and possibly a head injury. Olivier reportedly had bruises and perhaps a broken hand. Well, if this is true, Gabriel had better have police get that video STAT.

Rihanna Apologizes To Press For 777 Tour Conditions

rihanna apologizes for 777 tour

Did you hear about Rihanna’s 777 tour? It was billed as seven cities in seven days with a plane full of fans and reports along for the ride. What seemed like a dream come true for fans and the media (in terms of getting lots of access to the ‘Unapologetic’ singer) turned into a nightmare, it sounds like. Rihanna apparently greeted everyone on the first night, served champagne, and then promptly disappeared. Entertainment Weekly reports:

“There has been a general discontent with the dearth of any interaction with the star,” Spin reported. “One person was basically responsible for not only regularly keeping us from doing our jobs, but from sleeping or eating or going outside or even using a bathroom,” an anonymous source told Gawker. Eventually, the disgruntled plane passengers broke out in chants like “Save our jobs! Save our jobs!” and “Just one quote!” and, hilariously, “Wi-Fi!”

The one event? An Australian journalist streaked through the plane. You can see video here. Rihanna herself ended up apologizing at the end of it.

“I know you guys got barely any dirt. But I had to be good. I still sound like sh–. It’s impossible to spend time with everybody, and I’m sorry I didn’t. But this was excellent and I would definitely do it again. I had to preserve my health. Normally, I’d be back here popping bottles with y’all… I had to preserve my voice. I was worried about my body more than partying on the plane, so I had to just sleep whenever I could.”

If Rihanna wants to do this again, she’ll have to plan time to come back and chat. Drinking doesn’t have to be involved!
