The actors and royalty who mixed yesterday at the world premiere of Peter Jackson‘s The Lovely Bones wore sophisticated, glamorous outfits that fit the somber nature of the movie. But not Sophia Hyat. Apparently, Sophia’s the Phoebe Price of England. A semi-celebrity who has a penchant for wearing outlandish outfits to wherever there might be a paparazzo, Sophia graced the carpet in a hot white dress with the words “Honour Killings” scratched across her chest in blood red lipstick. We understand that honor killings are very real and very heinous. But is this about drawing attention to the cause? Or to her bosom? Or maybe a bit of both?
As for bigger celebrities in attendance, Susan Sarandon and Saoirse Ronan rubbed elbows with Prince Charles and Camilla, The Duchess of Cornwall. Mark Wahlberg, Rachel Weisz and Stanley Tucci, whom all have big roles in the tearjerker, were absent. The Lovely Bones premieres in the U.S. on Jan. 15. [Photos: Getty Images, Splash News Online]
Former teen screamers who think they’re too old for New Moon—some must exist—might consider a classier (albeit grammatically challenged) pic coming out, Me And Orson Welles. The Richard Linklater (Dazed & Confused) film romantically pairs High School Musical‘s Zac Efron with Claire Danes, whose run on My So-Called Life could teach Kristen Stewart a thing or two about teen angst. The pair were in Manhattan to screen the film last night, joined such stars as Danes’ husband Hugh Dancy, Amber Rose and Danes’ fellow ’90s MTV mainstay Courtney Love. Check out their red carpet fashion in the gallery below.

She may have had a total bust with Glitter, but Mariah Carey is taking on the movie world again, and doing a great job. Mrs. Nick Cannon was awarded the Palm Springs Film Festival Breakthrough Performance Award for her role in Precious. The award will be presented January 5th at the Palm Springs Convention Center. Mariah is in great company – other recipients include Marion Cotillard, Jennifer Hudson, Felicity Huffman, and Freida Pinto. Congrats! [Source: Variety; Photo: Getty Images]
We’re sure Ashley Greene wasn’t purposely trying to plug starvation as a weight-loss method when asked by reporters about how she stayed skinny for “New Moon.” The poor girl’s barely been in any movies, so she’s a bit, uh, green when it comes to repeating rehearsed lines prepped for her by her publicist. At least that’s what we assume happened when Ash gave this obnoxious comment to Us Magazine. “It was really easy,” said the actress, when asked how she stayed svelte. “We were working 12 hours a day, so it didn’t leave too much time to eat.”
Even more priceless is this observation from the mag: “After her response, her publicist nudged her, but Greene didn’t seem to care about her blunt answer.”
Blunt seems like a very nice way of calling Greene’s answer straight-up stupid, which we’re happy to do even if Us won’t. Regardless of how inexperienced one is with dealing with the press, shouldn’t stars know that providing thinspiration to their tween fans is totally taboo? [Photo: GettyImages]
Jake Gyllenhaal must have been too busy rubbing oil on his abs to attend last night’s screening of Brothers in NYC, but co-stars Natalie Portman and Tobey Maguire were there all the same to hawk their Oscar bait. Maybe Jake was still smarting from Nat’s zinger in People: “Jake is the kind of guy who can do a spot-on impression of someone you work with that will make you giggle. He plays guitar and has a great voice. Kids and dogs love him. He loves his mom and sister and girlfriend. HeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s perfect. Too bad heÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s ugly.” Among those attending were Emma Roberts, Agyness Deyn, Amanda Peet and Gossip Girl‘s Sebastian Stan.
And the Spanish thought a stampede of Scientologists was the worst thing that could happen when Tom Cruise rolled into town to film his new movie co-starring Cameron Diaz. Not so fast! Seven bulls escaped the Knight and Day film set and ran through nearby streets of Cadiz, Spain, injuring two women. Movie director Jose Luiz Escolar said he does not know how the animals escaped. What?! He “didn’t know”? Two women were injured, buddy, grab the bull by the horns, take responsibility, and apologize. Come on Jose! Filming in Cadiz was to begin on Monday, but has now been suspended. Ole! [Source: Yahoo News; Photo: Getty Images]
We already know Suri Cruise is quite the fashionable toddler, sporting gold high heels when dining and shopping with her mom Katie Holmes, but Suri’s recent trip to Topshop shows the Scientolotot is also a frugal recessionista! After having brunch at New York restaurant Balthazar, Suri took her mom Katie and stepsister Isabella for a little shopping in SoHo. Of all the pricey boutiques and designer shops in the hip downtown Manhattan shopping hotspot, Suri made a very recession-friendly choice when she stopped into the fashion destination and checked out a shiny top.

Now that we’ve revealed the Five Cheesiest Moments from The Twilight Saga: New Moon, let’s discuss what made the Twi-hards go wild. Here are our top five favorite moments from the much-anticipated sequel. Spoilers ahead!
5. We’ll be honest. We thought Anna Kendrick‘s role as Jessica in Twilight was annoying and poorly acted. Homegirl stepped it up for New Moon! She provided some of the most (intentionally) funny moments in the film as she frankly expressed her annoyance with Bella’s depression and lack of appreciation for shopping.
Our top four moments after the jump…
Twilight Saga: New Moon review time! We caught New Moon last night (yes, squeee!), and while the movie will undoubtedly make Twi-hards bubble over with excitement as the title card rolls, the much-anticipated film was filled with moments of ridiculous lines, shots, and less-than-Pixar quality animation. [Ed. note: While Taylor Lautner standing in the rain shirtless, above, may seem to qualify as cheese-tastic, there were far too many squeals of joy in the theater for us to knock it.]
Here are our top five most unintentionally hilarious moments (and yes, there are spoilers up ahead):
5. The animated wolves. If they looked fake on the big screen, we can’t imagine how horrible they’ll be on our 27″ screens on DVD.
Four more Velveeta-licious moments after the jump!
When they first hooked up, the Dawson’s Creek actress and the older, divorced Scientology-loving Top Gun star seemed like an odd match, but Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are still going strong. The parents of Suri just celebrated their third wedding anniversary! On Saturday night, Tom surprised Katie by booking the entire second floor of Bricco Italian restaurant in Boston. The couple dined on house-made pasta, Chilean sea bass, and Wagyu steak and “held hands the entire night.” So far so good! Check out our gallery of Tom and Katie! [Source: People; Photo: Getty Images]
