Dustin Hoffman has already won two Academy Awards, but that doesn’t make attending this year’s show any less special. The Quartet director may have had an awkward encounter with superfan Joseph Gordon-Levitt (just wait until the opening number, JGL! He’ll surely send you a fruit basket) but he was eager to gush about Ben Affleck, the son of his old pal Timothy and another actor-turned-director who has received lots of love this award season. “What do I make of him? How much time do you have?” Hoffman asked VH1′s very own Janell Snowden and MTV’s Josh Horowitz moments ago on the red carpet. “Affleck is the real thing as a director.” So he’s a Ben lover… just like us!
Ryan Gosling has stopped about 5,000 street fights and saved countless New York residents from speeding cabs like some kind of tank top-wearing Dark Knight, in addition to looking like he was drawn by Michelangelo himself. It would be hard for anyone to measure up to his benevolent influence, but…enter his new female counterpart Mila Kunis. According to TMZ, the Ted actress rushed to the aid of a 50-year-old man working in her home on Saturday after he starting seizing, coughing up blood and vomiting. After Kunis turned the man’s head to the side so he wouldn’t choke and made sure 911 was being called, someone else then “stuffed a wallet in his mouth so he wouldn’t swallow his tongue.” Hmm, they went with the wallet in the mouth? Really? Yeah, there’s a reason Mila is the new Lady Gosling, and this other person is not.
Not that Kunis is the only celebrity who’s been busy rescuing the planet’s unwell. Dustin Hoffman also stepped up, dialed for help and saved the day after stumbling upon a heart attack victim in London’s Hyde Park this week. So wait…is Dustin Hoffman the new Mila Kunis? Yeah, that’s the ticket. Congratulations, Dustin. And you’re welcome, everyone else in the world!

For some it’s called the walk of shame, for others like Dustin Hoffman, it’s better known as the stride of pride. While being interviewed with Little Focker’s co-star Owen Wilson, Dustin Hoffman got hyper-specific about the tawdry details of his first time with wife Lisa. “Yes we did [sleep together on the first date]. This was going to be her first movie star, her first older man, her first ex—someone who had broken up with their wife—and the first date and she did all four.” We’re sure Mrs. Hoffman is thrilled to have their secret shame splashed all over the internet, though to be fair it’s not the first time Hoffman has let his inner slut out in public.
Lisa might not have been a Rules girl when they were dating, but it turns out love was in the air either way. “She said I ruined it by calling the next day. That probably went against every romantic advice because she told me later that her grandmother always said, ‘If you give away the milk, you have to buy the cow,’ or something.” Our new hero Owen Wilson objected to the logic of that advice, pointing out, “If you have a great glass of cold milk that’s really refreshing, you’d be even more inclined not to let that cow go.” WE KNOW, right? Man, it seems like there’s a regular U.N. summit of sleeping around over at the Fockers. We might have to go see the movie after all; us sluts have to stick together!
Between Dustin Hoffman cuddling his wife and precious child co-stars running around the red carpet, Jessica Alba had some serious competition for Cutest Thing At The Little Fockers NY Premiere. But thanks to her fringe-festooned Valentino dress, she still had no problem catching everyone’s eye.Ã‚Â The glittery gold heels were probably the only reason she didn’t bust out a Charleston. See more photos of Alba and her Fockers co-stars in the gallery below.
Talk about passing the torch! While there were more famous celebrities at last night’s Lakers game, the biggest stars in the stands were easily Jason Bateman and Dustin Hoffman, who treated the kiss-cam to one of the least expected make-out sessions ever. More expected was having the entire cast of Grown Ups appear in the front row—hope they had to pay extra for that bit of advertising. See Jack Nicholson, Leonardo DiCaprio, the Red Hot Chili Peppers and other celebs cheer on the Lakers’ finals win in the gallery below.

Last time we saw Brad Pitt, he was talking to Oprah about the Obama acceptance speech in Chicago. Now Angelina Jolie‘s on the red carpet in LA with a man dressed up like Kung Fu Panda to promote the movie’s DVD release. Wait a second…they’re not in the same city! Oh my god, is it splitsville for Brangelina?!
With Pitt visiting friends in NY rather than scurrying to Jolie’s teat, some are concerned about what their solo jaunts might signify. “They’ve never really been apart since they met on the set of ‘Mr. & Mrs. Smith,’ so it’s odd,” said a source for the New York Post. It would seem the working couple simply have conflicting schedules, forcing them to blather about their children on difference coasts. Jolie has even suggested that more kids are on the way (“It’s chaos in our house, but it’s so much fun. We’ll definitely have more”), but that’s no reason we shouldn’t break out into hives at the thought of these two superstars spending time apart.
Check out the gallery for shots of Jolie making time with a giant panda and Dustin Hoffman (hey, if Mickey Rourke has a chance with Evan Rachel Wood…), while Pitt skips around NYC dressed like Guy Caballero.
