Bradley Cooper is enormously tall, handsome and confident, with an Oscar nomination under his belt and the man hair version of Kim Kardashian’s butt (that is to say: ridiculously, comically huge). It seems he might just be super-human! And yet – all we needed to see were these photos of him dancing with actress Alice Eve at a BAFTAs after-party to knock him back down to regular guy status, like a werewolf when the moon disappears.
In the pics, which you can see in the gallery below, Bradley looks like every other dude-brah who’s ever danced too hard to “Hey Ya” at a wedding with a bridesmaid he just met – sweaty and flushed while attempting to flirt awkwardly. Is it possible this new vision of BCoops makes him even more charming?
You have no idea how long we’ve been waiting for the new Star Trek movie. And now we’re one step closer because the teaser trailer is out and it is all sorts of boss. All the usual suspects are in there reprising their roles: Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Karl Urban, Zoe Saldana, Anton Yelchin, Simon Pegg and John Cho. New additions include Alice Eve and one totally baller Benedict Cumberbatch. Sherlock fans will know why we’re so stoked. And he’s the bad guy, which is even cooler. The trailer starts with his gravelly voice threatening, “You think your world is safe. It is an illusion. A comforting lie told to protect you. Enjoy these final moments of peace. For I have returned to have my vengeance.” And then everything explodes in the coolest way. Of course there’s the obligatory close-up shot of Pine’s face with his baby blues looking intent. Makes us melt every single time. There’s also one clip of Alice screaming in abject terror, so you know Cumberbatch is bringing it. The movies’s only releasing next year in May, which is a huge bummer, but if they keep serving slices of trailer goodness, we won’t complain. Not too much, at least.
Up until now, we’ve always thought of Alice Eve as “the hot blonde from She’s Out of My League, even though she’s had roles since then. That’s about to change, big time. The British babe endured hours of filming in a coffin for The Raven, in theaters April 27, so we’ll have those claustrophobic images seared in our minds for a while. Then she’s co-starring in Men in Black III (out May 25), as the younger version of Emma Thompson’s Agent O. And next year, we’re probably going to be referring to her as “Star Trek hottie Alice Eve.” In the meantime, we’re going to call her, the beautiful lady who climbed onto a table to show off her stunning stiletto booties while confusing our photographer by pronouncing Giambattista Valli so authentically.
Alice’s top and skirt are Dolce & Gabbana, and the shoes are the aforementioned Giambattista Valli. Her nail color is “tart deco” from Esse. If we paint our nails that color, we will look like her when we grow up, right?

Holding the She’s Out Of My League premiere in Vegas was a smooth idea, but it does cut down on the number of non-cast celebs available to attend compared to NY or LA. Thankfully, one of the hottest rising stars in America showed up at Planet Hollywood to catch the Jay Baruchel comedy—DJ Pauly D from Jersey Shore! Between this and Pauly’s photo with Michael Cera, our boy is clearly the toast of the comedy world. Personally, we feel all future premieres should be judged on how many Jersey Shore castmembers can be roped into attending. One shot of Snooki and The Situation on your red carpet is worth a dozen Brangelinas—at least until Brad loses the goatee.
