Last year, we were pretty sure that Christie Brinkley was cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs after the sordid details about her divorce from Peter Cook went public. (You remember, that’s the case where he slept with an 18-year-old and they both demanded that the other get sent to prison – classy!) It’s nice to see that one of Christie Brinkley’s divorces hasn’t ended in complete sleaze though, just look at how happy she and her beret are to be hanging out with ex-husband Billy Joel and their daughter Alexa Ray.
They were all together for the premiere of Last Play At Shea at the Tribeca Film Festival chronicling the Piano Man’s final concert at Shea Stadium before it was torn down. Also in attendance? Joel’s other ex, Katie Lee, whom he divorced last summer. Now that just seems awkward. Or is is sweet? We’re so used to divorces ending badly that all this supportive, nice behavior is weird.

Amanda Seyfried is definitely a star on the rise—we’re not even halfway through 2010 and she’s already starred in three films. Following the Nicholas Sparks weepie Dear John and the Atom Egoyan sex thriller Chloe (which came out internationally in 2009) is Letters To Juliet, one of those whimsical “Americans in Europe” movies about indecisive romantics that give away the entire plot in the trailer, because apparently the audience for these films need to know exactly what the happy ending will be. Anyhow, Seyfried, joined by boyfriend Dominic Cooper, showed up at the Tribeca Film Festival premiere wearing a suit jacket with pleated shorts. Call us boring, but we think she looked lovelier walking the dog. See photos of Amanda and more in the gallery below.

Okay Twi-hards, let’s get to it. We just watched the new Twilight Saga: Eclipse trailer and we gotta be honest – we have some complaints (don’t hurt us, just hear us out!). Allow us to present them to you now, in order of “BOOO!”-ness.
1. Is the make up artist trying to make Edward increasingly paler in every movie on purpose? By the time we get to Breaking Dawn he’ll be transparent, which will really suck for those of us who are holding out for those bed-breaking Brazilian love scenes.
2. Kristen Stewart‘s wig, you make K-Stew’s atrocious Joan Jett haircut look luscious. Did they make the poor girl to sleep in a hat every night to flatten that thing out even more? Why David Slade/Summit didn’t force Kristen to get extensions and dye the goth look is beyond us. Bring back Bella’s old hair!
3. WHERE IS THE KISSING? The making out? The snuggling to keep warm? The tent full of sexual tension? The Edward and Bella dry humping? This movie is for GIRLS (and er, grown women) and sure, we gals like action but we like ACTION a lot more (especially action that involves a shirtless Robert Pattinson, pleaseeeee).
Okay okay, now that our rant’s over we’re ready to gush. We’re excited to finally see some drama and danger (much improved from the motor bike snooze-fest that is New Moon), Bryce Dallas Howard looks badass as Victoria and OMG! The engagement ring!
Check out our gallery of screen-grabs from the trailer below and feel free to put us in our place in the comments. We know you can dish it and we can definitely take it.
The average woman spends hours each week blowing out, straightening, or curling her locks and stresses every two months about the next haircut and color – but not these 15 courageous movie stars and musicians. From Natalie Portman getting buzzed in V For Vendetta to Britney Spears‘ breakdown to Amber Rose amping up her outrageous outfits with a bleached ‘do; each one of these celebs threw to the wind what so many women consider to be a defining part of their appearance. With little more than some extra eye makeup, they pull it off. Here are 15 cueballin’ babes who made bald hot. [Photos: Getty Images]
Kristen Stewart opens up about why she won’t let us in.
We reported early Thursday morning on the controversy surrounding Kristen Stewart’s smoking (literally) new spread in Flaunt Magazine. We’ve finally learned what she’s dishing on in the feature, and it’s a side of Kristen Stewart we’ve never seen before.

Jennifer Lopez walks a red carpet as often as we buy gum, so the bootylicious star is bound to fall into some posing habits. She’s clearly decided that whatever you’d call the facial expression in the above gif is working for her, and has hence given the ‘tude to every photographer ever. Want to give it a whirl? Here are three simple steps:
1. Squint eyes as if you’re trying to read size 8 font.
2. Part lips. (You better be wearing heavy lip lacquer!)
3. Suck in cheeks.

The stars of the latest (and last) installment of the Shrek franchise, Shrek Forever After, were out in Manhattan last night to walk the green carpet (because Shrek is green! And it’s Earth Day! Let’s pack as much metaphor into this green carpet as possible!) for the film’s premiere as part of the Tribeca Film Festival. That means that festival founder Robert DeNiro was on hand, and plenty of other randos, too. This event is further proof that Kelly Bensimon has become one of those traveling garden gnomes that has its photo taken at every possible opportunity, thus making us wonder how it’s logistically possible for her to be in so many places at once. Check out all the ogre-loving attendees below.

When Iron Man 2 premieres in May, prepare yourself for a post-mortem celebrity cameo. Adam Goldstein, a.k.a. DJ A.M., who passed away last August, filmed a scene for the movie, but after he died director Jon Favreau had to make a decision whether or not to keep his role in the movie. Favreau opted to leave it in, and to dedicate the film to the DJ.
Favreau explained “We tried to make it respectful and for people who know him, they’ll get a kick out of it and for people who don’t it will sort of slide by without much notice.” One of the film’s co-stars, Don Cheadle said “It was just really sad for everyone and it made it strange, too. It’ll be interesting to see it on the screen,” which is how we feel – sad and strange. It’s a nice gesture for sure, but might make for a jarring, possibly sad moment in an otherwise upbeat, action-filled movie. His is not the only celebrity cameo in the film, but it seems like it may be the one to distract us the most – until we’re further distracted by Scarlett Johansson‘s Black Widow outfit, of course.

No offense to Tom Bosley, but The Back-Up Plan‘s LA premiere was about as low on starpower as that Miami screening last week where Jennifer Lopez dressed up like a cheetah. Forced to think outside the “celeb guest” box, the filmmakers rolled out Nubbins, one of three terriers to play wheelchair-bound Nuts in the movie. Here’s the thing: Nubbins isn’t a special needs dog—he only plays one in the movie. While this must not qualify as animal abuse (the American Humane Association actually teamed with The Back-Up Plan, in which J. Lo plays a pet boutique owner, to promote animal adoption), shoving a dog in a flower-filled wheelchair for a photo op weirds us out just a little. Wouldn’t J. Lo walking a dog be cute enough? Poor guy!
