Cruz Beckham’s Birthday Draws A-List Crowd

Oscars? Pah! For the under-fives, there was only one place to be spotted this weekend — Cruz Beckham’s 4th birthday party. Held at the latest hip hangout — well, the Xtreme Martial Arts World Headquarters — it was attended by the cream of Hollywood who weren’t busy prepping themselves for the next night’s Academy Awards. But could the red carpet boast outfits of this calibre?

The birthday boy arrived dressed as Wolverine with mom Victoria and left in an Iron Man get-up, while brother Romeo was Batman and older Beckham boy Brooklyn clearly thought he was way cool for this dressing up business. Eva Longoria — who we reckon looks a total natural as a mom — brought along her nieces and Joel Madden and Nicole Richie took their gorgeous daughter Harlow.


Hollywood Gossip Dispatch: Jen, Angelina To Face Off

Angelina Jolie and Jennifer Aniston are rumored to finally be coming face to face at this year’s Night Before Party at the Beverly Hills Hotel. Although both ladies had RSVPd for the pre-Oscars bash in 2008, no showdown occurred, as Jen left the event after half an hour and Angelina and Brad Pitt never made it.

Insiders say this year might be a different story. Jen is reportedly prepared to face her ex-husband Brad’s babymomma in the flesh. “Jen has never been more ready,” a source close to the actress tells The Boston Herald. “It’s important for Jen to feel she can stack up to Angelina with her dress, her hair, and her date. And now couldn’t be better timing.”

Since Jen and Brad’s split, and Brad’s quick move to Angelina, the actresses have never come face to face. “It’s taken lots of time, but Jen’s getting past her insecurities about Brad and Angie and their huge, happy family. Though the meeting is sure to be difficult, Jen knows it has to happen sometime,” the source reveals.

If their face-to-face encounter at the party doesn’t go down, Angelina will reportedly be hard for Jen to miss at the actual Oscars ceremony on Sunday. The mother of six is reportedly shopping around for a $20-million-dollar necklace to wear to the event.

She’s been driving all the high-end jewelers of New York crazy,” a source tells OK!

Million Dollar Oscar Winner Offer

Some lucky Oscar winner could not just go home with a prized statuette, but with an extra million bucks! The makers of Airborne have offered to give 1 million dollars to charity if any of the major winners lugs the product onstage during their acceptance speech.

The offer has been extended to all those in the Best Actor, Best Actress, and Best Supporting Actor and Actress category.

Airborne co-founder Robert McDowell said of the big bucks proposal, “It just seemed to me, in this economy, charities are really struggling. It seemed like a good time to reward some charities, and, if it goes through, we’ll be thrilled to provide the funds to the charity.”

Who will bite at Airborne’s million dollar product placement offer? If Brad and Angelina sign up and get the dough, some very lucky orphans might be getting a new school. But if Best Actor nominee Mickey Rourke is the big winner, surely the The Wrestler star will ease the pain of losing “the love of his life” by purchasing a fantastic Chihuahua farm!

Terrence Howard Beat His Lady, Too

When Terrence Howard spouted off about Chris Brown being “a great guy” after he allegedly abused Rihanna, we didn’t realize the actor had a rap sheet of his own. In 2001, he was arrested on suspicion of assaulting his then-estranged wife, Lori McCommas. Howard allegedly threatened her over the phone by saying, “Don’t disrespect me by hanging up on me or I’ll come over and hurt you.”

According to documents obtained by The Smoking Gun, he did just that. He not only broke down his wife’s front door but also “grabbed the victim’s left arm and punched her twice with a closed fist in the left side of the face.”

Howard was booked on suspicion of simple assault, making terroristic threats, harassment and stalking, and disorderly conduct — and he pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct in 2002. Howard and McCommas are separated.

Guess we’ll have to add Terrance Howard to our Celebrity Mugshot Hall of Shame:
