Zoe Saldana Goes Without CGI At Avatar Premiere

Zoe Saldana

Zoe Saldana, attending the premiere of Avatar in Hollywood, did her best to make up for the lack of actual skin we see from her in the big-budget CGI epic. Co-stars Sam Worthington, Michelle Rodriguez, Sigourney Weaver and Giovanni Ribisi also hit the red (or rather, blue) carpet, along with closing credits siren Leona Lewis and countless well-wishers like Audrina Patridge, Bill Paxton and Virginia Madsen. While it’s too soon to tell if direct James Cameron’s post-Titanic gamble will pay off, the film’s good buzz—including nine Critics’ Choice Movie Award nominations—more than suggests it might.

See who else showed up to get their first look at one of the most anticipated movies of the year in the gallery below.

Kate Hudson Talks A-Rod With Madonna, Struggling With Split

Kate Hudson

While Kate Hudson and Madonna understandably didn’t pose together at Tuesday night’s Nine premiere in NYC, the New York Post says Alex Rodriguez‘s exes had plenty to talk about at the afterparty. “When the cameras were on Kate she was all smiles,” said their source. “But privately you could tell she has had her heart broken…It was her big premiere, and she was upset Alex wasn’t there to support her.” Would Madonna have shown up if he was going to be?

Though their alleged split has been credited to Hudson’s desire for publicity or commitment (or, depending who you ask, both), the Post says she and Rodriguez are trying to work things out. “They had a huge fight in London at the premiere of Nine, and Alex flew to Miami to hang out with his friends. But in the last few days he and Kate have started speaking again on the phone. She hopes they can work things out. But they are both very stubborn.” If they don’t patch up, just make sure not to play Jay-Z‘s “Empire State Of Mind” around her again. “When the song was played at the after-party, Kate looked at her mom [Goldie Hawn] and did a fake scream.” Aww, the Yankee anthem was their “Look Of Love”…or at least “Rollin’ With The Homies.”


Nine NYC Premiere Brings Out All The Ladies

Penelope Cruz, Nicole Kidman, Kate Hudson

Madonna and Lourdes were only two of the women strutting their stuff at the NYC premiere of Nine last night. For the first time, all the Critics’ Choice Movie Award nominee’s female stars were in attendance on the red carpet: Nicole Kidman, Penelope Cruz, Kate Hudson (who skipped out on the LA premiere), Fergie (who missed the London one), Marion Cotillard and Judi Dench. Also present were Daniel Day-Lewis, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, Tobey Maguire, Kimora Lee Simmons, Goldie Hawn (supporting daughter Kate) and Naomi Watts (who should have helped pal Kidman with her support). Check out their ensembles in the gallery below.

Jake Gyllenhaal And Reese Witherspoon: The Split Is Real

Jake Gyllenhaal & Reese Witherspoon

They were on for two years, then rumored to be off just a few weeks ago, but then their reps were like, oh no, they are so on. Jake was even rumored to be proposing. But now the Reese Witherspoon and Jake Gyllenhaal breakup rumor is back, and a source confirms to Gossip Cop that the two “are no longer together” and the breakup was “amicable and mutual”. “Gyllenspoon” never did roll off the tongue that easily, so maybe it’s for the best.

The couple met on the set of Rendition in 2007, a film which will join Mr. And Mrs. Smith as being memorable only because of the celebrity couple it created. Now that Reese and Jake are broken up, you can feel free to forget it entirely.

Style Wars: Mother Vs. Daughter

Madonna‘s more-fabulous-by-the-day, 13-year-old daughter Lourdes Leon accompanied her on the red carpet last night at the NYC premiere of Nine, and we must say she gave the Queen of Pop some competition for Best Dressed. The pair matched in mostly-black ensembles, with the tween fashionista donning a chic grunge look complete with fishnets and high-top Doc Martens. Mamadonna sported a lacey bustier and past-the-elbow gloves. Does Madonna still reign as the family’s red carpet queen, or is little Lourdes stealing the throne? [Photos: Getty Images]

Blondes And Big Hats At Sherlock Holmes Premiere

Robert Downey Jr. didn’t know he’d snagged a Golden Globe nomination for Sherlock Holmes when he hit the film’s premiere in London last night, but Iron Man was struttin’ anyway. Joining the hatted hero (who should have rocked his old mustache too) and fellow fop Jude Law—flaunting a long scarf to slightly less dramatic effect—were blondes Heather Graham, Gwen Stefani and Holmes co-star Rachel McAdams. Check out photos from the premiere in the gallery below.

Up In The Air, Nine, “Glee” Score Golden Globe Noms


Awards season 2010 is heating up! Just yesterday we learned what stars scored Critics’ Choice Movie Awards nominations, and today we’ve got the Golden Globes list to peruse. Up in the Air and Nine are once again at the front of the movie pack, with six and five nods, respectively. In what’s sure to be a gnarly fight, Meryl Streep is up against – who else -  Meryl Streep for Best Actress in a Musical/Comedy for her work in Julie & Julia and It’s Complicated. Sandra Bullock is also nominated twice – in each Best Actress category for her work in The Proposal and The Blind Side.

On the TV front, we were psyched to see our new favorite show “Modern Family” up for Best Television Series – Comedy or Musical, alongside “Glee,” which got four nods. January Jones is repping “Mad Men” in the Best Actress category, where a win could help the world forget about her disastrous stint on “SNL” earlier this fall. Got favorites? Share ‘em in the comments below, and let the Globes begin!

  • Big Love (HBO)
  • Dexter (Showtime)

Split? A-Rod Spotted With Blonde While Kate Hops Around NYC

Kate Hudson

Rumors of a split with Alex Rodriguez didn’t keep Kate Hudson from going out in public yesterday. The Nine star rushed in and out of her hotel—in an impressive variety of ensembles—to attend a screening of the Critics’ Choice Movie Award-nominated film, appear on It’s On With Alexa Chung and go to dinner with mom Goldie Hawn and common-law stepdad Kurt Russell. According to the New York Daily News, A-Rod has been keeping busy too…with another woman in Miami.

“She and Alex were introduced at [a dinner for Armani Saturday], but it looked like they got pretty friendly pretty fast,” says their source. “They definitely left the dinner separately, but showed up at [the nightclub] LIV together a few hours later.” As Madonna knows all too well, A-Rod is not one to sit around and mope if things are going less than swimmingly in a relationship. Will she return to the Yankee bleachers or were they just sex-crazed ships passing in the night?

Check out Kate’s manic Monday in the gallery below.

FABlife’s DVD Pick Of The Week

Inglourious Basterds

Warning: Quentin Tarantino‘s WWII movie is more about talking heads than broken Nazi craniums, although there’s some of that, too. The heads are very fine and the talk isn’t just uber-cool; it’s deep, too. Brad Pitt is the Allied scalp-hunter up against a shifty SS nemesis (the Critics’ Choice Movies Awards-nominated Christoph Waltz). Their duel comes to a head at a movie theatre set to host an explosive premiere for Der Fuhrer. Tarantino’s smart take on national and racial identity suggests his brand of pulp is ripening well.

Extras: The two-disc set comes with extended and alternate scenes, a featurette on the Eli Roth-directed film within the film, and a roundtable chat with Tarantino and Pitt.
