Congratulations, Sam Worthington! The Australian actor’s roles in 3-D action blockbusters Avatar and Clash Of The Titans have earned him such a rabid fan base he needed a police escort to get out of LAX! Unfortunately, rather than screaming teenage girls or even horny housewives, Sam was harassed by a squadron of schlubby autograph collectors bearing portraits of blue-skinned Na’vis. And, boy, did Sam ever look excited to see them! Better do a rom-com fast, Sammy—or at least start taking some shirtless Statham-esque non-CGI roles—unless you want nothing but convention halls full of doughy furry fans in your future.

Rise and shine, Team Jacob! Summit Entertainment is shakin’ Taylor Lautner fans outta bed by throwing them a bone(r) and releasing three more stills from The Twilight Saga: Eclipse. One shot features Bella snuggling up to Mr. Muscles over a fire and another shows Jacob undoubtedly threatening her vampy boy toy.
As for Team Edward, we’re afraid all you get this morning is a still of the Cullen family looking Folgers-alert in the woods. Enjoy! [Photo: Summit Entertainment]
We really hope that Carey Mulligan never gets a chance to see The Blind Side. Sandra Bullock may have won the best actress Oscar, but after seeing this Sixties-set coming-of-age story, it’s clear the Brit newcomer was the victim of a robbery. Her 16-year-old Jenny is a little smarter than everyone else at school, and bored to death growing up in a drab London suburb. Then along comes an older charmer in a sporty motorcar, ready to whisk her off to exciting nightclubs, country jaunts and even a trip to Paris—the city of every young intellectual’s dreams. Jenny is ready to give up pursuing her studies, but David, played by Peter Sarsgaard, has many secrets to hide. In a strong cast, father Alfred Molina and Bond girl Rosamund Pike are also stand-outs. The sharp script is by High Fidelity author Nick Hornby.
Extras: Commentary from Mulligan, Sarsgaard and director Lone Scherfig; deleted scenes; two featurettes.

Check out our EXCLUSIVE DVD bonus clip above, wherein Mulligan discusses what it was like, as a 22-year-old, playing a 16-year-old girl.
They have to run out of countries eventually, right? Jennifer Aniston and Gerald Butler flaunted their modest sexual chemistry yet again Monday, promoting The Bounty Hunter with a red carpet rendezvous in Berlin and looking more than a little batty from the grind (if you can call international jet-setting and cuddling for the cameras a “grind”). Even if one makes the most out of that photo of Gerard groping Jennifer’s ass and assumes there’s a genuine relationship brewing between them, you have to assume these stars are looking forward to exploring it outside a studio-approved setting—unless they get off on their handlers watching. Check out their stir-crazed silliness in the gallery below.

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!
