3-D technology is cool and all, but what really fascinates Gemma Arterton are pockets. The Clash Of The Titans star couldn’t keep her hands out of hers at the film’s London premiere earlier today—after a while it stops looking like a cool pose and more like your belly itches, Gemma. Also attending were co-stars Nicholas Hoult, Alexa Davalos and Sam Worthington, who probably isn’t worried about being typecast as a 3-D action hero as long as these films continue to make kajillions. Release the Kraken in the gallery below.
Looks like Gerald Butler and Jennifer Aniston aren’t finished spending their nights together—not when there are Bounty Hunter premieres in Europe to hit! The cozy co-stars enjoyed a candle-lit dinner on the Seine Saturday before hitting the film’s Paris debut Sunday. Despite photographic evidence of Gerald treating Jennifer’s ass like a bowling ball, we doubt anything too serious has sparked between them: it’s probably more noteworthy if Gerald goes a night without fingering someone’s keister. See more photos of the ultimate are-they-aren’t-they in the gallery below.

Uma Thurman‘s latest movie, Motherhood, came and went in the U.S. last fall. The film grossed just under $100,000 during its run in theaters here in October, small potatoes when you compare it to Thurman’s previous films, but we guess people just haven’t forgiven her for My Super Ex-Girlfriend. People in the U.K. were even less excited to see the new film though, because on its opening day this past Sunday, it made £9, which means one person saw it that day. ONE person. On the bright side, at least they didn’t have to deal with anyone texting or talking the whole time. The total take for the weekend was £88, or about $131. That means nine people in all of England saw the film. Producer Jana Edelbaum, after being notified of her film’s losses said “We must have broken a new record for grosses.” Indeed.
Unfortunately for the film, it’s going to go down not just as that crappy Uma Thurman movie, but as the movie that drew an audience we can literally count on both our hands, which means that rather than being forgotten, it might go the way of Glitter and end up as a punchline for years to come.

Do actors eat trophies or something? Oscar season has been over for less than a month, but the pageantry continues at full pace. Enjoying his metal meal last night was Matt Damon, earning a Lifetime Achievement Award (we’re not kidding) from the American Cinematheque (again, not kidding) for the outstanding body of work the 39-year-old has sculpted (Rounders, yo!). Among those celebrating the Damon Supremacy were Clint Eastwood, Charlize Theron, Sarah Silverman (they f—ed, remember?), Robin Williams and, of course, BFF Ben Affleck. It might seem a little early to give the Talented Mr. Damon such a trophy, but it’s really just under the buzzer: a new proposition under review in California could have all actors bronzed at the age of 40, granting thespians both eternal youth and the honor of being trophies themselves.

Miley Cyrus and boyfriend/co-star Liam Hemsworth strolled the red carpet at the premiere of their new vom-com, The Last Song, looking like a couple of kids who just discovered the magic of hand jobs in love. We must admit that we’re crushing on Miley’s look: slick hair, clean lines and a perfect LBD. It’s when she opens her mouth and words come out that we curl up into a ball of cringe. Oh Liam, it’s a good thing she can’t talk when her tongue is down your throat.
The pair was joined by a bunch of nobodies there to bask in Miley’s teen glow. Pics below!
It’s not often that farm animals attend film premieres, but there was one in attendance at the Nanny McPhee And The Big Bang opening in London yesterday. Star Emma Thompson had to wrangle the animal, luckily handing it over to its trainer before it made on the carpet.
Thompson and co-star Maggie Gyllenhaal looked glamorous regardless of the fact that they were competing for attention with Porky. During filming, Gyllenhaal said of Thompson “Early on, Emma gave me a couple of notes. And she’s not directing me, she’s acting with me! If some other actor started giving me notes I would tell them to f**k off – there is not one actor I would allow that from.But they were fantastic notes – clear and totally helpful.At the premiere, Gyllenhall added “I’m her biggest fan and I know I’m not alone in thinking she is a brilliant genius. I would like to work with her on everything.” For more pictures of the stars in attendance, check out our gallery. [Photos: Getty Images]

Amanda Seyfried has an admirable resumé – she managed to turn her soap opera beginnings into a diverse movie star career full of low budget and big studio films. Even though she accepts some challenging, independent roles, she’s more famous for her romantic comedies (Mamma Mia!, Dear John) and explains that basically, she just does those for the paycheck.
In a recent Vanity Fair interview Seyfried explained her method for choosing roles, saying that it’s hard to say no to a rom-com because “they pay a lot of money. Sometimes, when you want to buy an apartment in Manhattan, you gotta do one or two. . .. It’s making movies for a different reason: for money. And that’s all great. We all want money. I mean, I love my apartment in New York.” She later added that the only other reasons she’d do a big-budget film are “[If] you have a kid, and then, you need a bigger apartment. Or like, I don’t know, if your dog is sick, and you need to pay for surgery.” At least she’s honest. Also, we don’t have pets, just how much does dog surgery cost, anyway? [Photo: Getty Images]
Fantastic Mr. Fox
Acclaimed director Wes Anderson is best known for tweedy films like The Royal Tenenbaums that deal with the eccentric rich. So he may not be the first choice to direct a stop-motion animated version of Roald Dahl‘s delicious children’s tale, where a hungry fox outwits some bloodthirsty farmers. In fact, Fox softens the gore to create a lovely bedtime story. There are animals in corduroy jackets, musical interludes by Jarvis Cocker, and the occasional fox-weasel knife fight. Sure, the meticulous art direction means the wallpaper is important as the characters. But kids will enjoy the badger who sounds like Bill Murray and adults can smile at the odd joke about existentialism. Well, some adults.
Extras: Featurettes include a making of segment and a look at how puppets are made to move.

Janet Jackson hasn’t had the easiest time since that infamous “wardrobe malfunction” in 2004. In the five years since, she’s lost her brother, broken up with long-time boyfriend Jermaine Dupri (though not before he vomited on her in public), suffered vertigo on stage and left her last record label after only one (flop) album. With all the great music she’s given us, we’re glad to see her smiling away at the special screening for Why Did I Get Married Too? in NYC last night, joined by everyone from Jill Scott and the Rev. Al Sharpton to Ice-T and CoCo (yes, star/writer/producer/director Tyler Perry was there too). While the film is unlikely to top the box office when it’s released in April (a little flick called Clash Of The Titans comes out the same day), Perry’s track record suggests Jackson should have another hit on her hands. She’s earned it!
