Penelope Cruz is just the latest (and, some might argue, greatest) celebrity to strip off her couture in support of PETA‘s anti-fur cause. Cruz’s new PETA ad only offers a glimpse of bare shoulder (unlike, say, Pamela Anderson‘s cuts of meat bikini pose), but hopefully that small sliver of skin will give a big boost to the organization’s efforts once it debuts on a billboard near Penn Station in NYC today. “Penelope has appeared on every ‘best-dressed’ list in the world, and the one thing you’ll never see her wearing is fur,” PETA’s Senior VP Lisa Lange explained to US Weekly.
Check out some similarly topless PETA ads from the likes of Eva Mendes, Nia Long and Khloe Kardashian, as well as some fur-clad celeb offenders like Kim Kardashian, whom PETA has accused of being less than friendly toward all the little birdies and the little monkeys.

PETA has always had a love-hate relationships with celebrities. Some star studs like Justin Bieber have won the hearts of animal lovers by gracing PETA ads. Some celebs have even stripped down to step up for the cause of animal rights. However, there’s always those celebrities who blaze their own fur trail and send PETA in a hot rage likeÂ Kim KardashianÂ most recently did.
On the good side of the controversial organization are Pamela Anderson and Bob Harper, who recently teamed up with PETA to launch limited-edition U.S. postage stampsÂ featuring famous vegetarians. From Gandhi to Ellen DeGeneres, now your bills and birthday cards can all feature Hollywood’s top 20 herbivores. But without even buying any stamps (snail mail, what’s that?), you can peruse our eye-popping, yet informative list of celebs who made PETA’s It list and hit list, along with the famous offenders who’ve since changed their ways.

Listen. Do you hear that? That’s the sound of millions of hearts shattering to the strains of “It’s A Small World After All”. It looks like our favorite earth quakin’, fight breakin’ hero Ryan Gosling has a new lady love in his life…and sadly, it isn’t Rachel McAdams again. Ryan spent the weekend canoodling around Disneyland with his The Place Beyond The Pines costar, Eva Mendes. Exclusive pics from Us Weekly show the two holding hands and kissing. *Gasp* Not in front of Goofy, guys! “They were very playful,” a fellow Disney reveler told Us. “Eva was skipping around like a little girl…She would lean into him and she held his arm the entire time.” They rode rides together, and sampled the park’s finest fairground cuisine, including churros, cotton candy and corn-on-the-cob. “She fed him,” said an observer.
According to a source on the set of their new movie, the twosome have been moving toward more-than-costars status for quite some time. “It hasn’t been a secret how excited Eva’s been to film with him, and she’s always joked with us about how gorgeous he is,” they told US. “She’s never been shy about having the hots for him! There’s always been this strong chemistry…this was just a matter of time.” We can only imagine the passionate wet kisses under Splash Mountain. Disneyland may the happiest place on Earth for them, but it just crushed an untold number of fan girl/boy dreams. The Mickey Mouse giveth, and the Mickey Mouse taketh away.

Spike TV’s Annual “Guys Choice Awards” Show almost got completely sidelined thanks to the MTV Movie Awards. Both shows happened on the weekend, but the Guys Choice was one day earlier. But never fear, we’ve got the pictures that matter. “Decade of Hotness” winner Jennifer Aniston receiving her award in a tiny Azzedine Alaia black dress on the stage, for one!
Newly 40 Mark Wahlberg also won both “Guy of The Year” and the “Guy Movie of the Year”, while Keith Richards won the “Brass Balls” of the year (handed over to him by Robert de Niro no less)! Mila Kunis was on hand to receive the “Holy Grail of Hotness Award” from Justin Timberlake and Jim Carrey won “Funniest MF.” Sean Penn and Scarlett Johansson were there acting quite chummy, so the plot thickens! See what we mean? That’s a lot of A-List! Check out our gallery below for all the pictures.

Eva Mendes doesn’t get a lot of roles in serious pictures (not that we didn’t love her in The Spirit, The Other Guys and Bad Lieutenant: Port Of Call New Orleans), so we can’t blame her for dressing in earnest at the Tribeca Film Festival premiere of Last Night last night, where her heavy red gown stood out from the playful party dresses and men without ties. Also attending the affair were everyone from Tribeca regulars Robert DeNiro and Liev Schrieber to rarer sights like Courtney Love and Dionne Warwick. See photos from the festival red carpet and the afterparty in the gallery below.

We never imagined anyone would be able to touch an A-lister’s junk and stand up for women’s rights at the same time. But as always, we’re painfully incorrect. At Saturday’s Independent Spirit Awards, Rosario Dawson grabbed Paul Rudd’s crotch after unexpectedly leaping on stage. Apparently Rosario didn’t take kindly to presenters Rudd and Eva Mendes‘ sketch, which hilariously featured Rudd repeatedly grabbed Eva’s breasts. Haha, yeah, what a knee-slapper. You two should take your show on the road!
“I’m a women’s rights activist and I was getting a little tired that he was grabbing her boob onstage for half an hour,” Dawson told Access Hollywood. “Nothing bad, but it was funny.” In case it seems like such a beautiful moment had to be choreographed, apparently Dawson decided in the moment to take the stage. “I was sitting there with my fork like, ‘If he doesn’t stop, I’m going to stab him with my fork,’” Rosario said. “So I got up there and I stabbed him with my fork, and he didn’t stop, so I was like, alright, I’m going to grab his package.” We didn’t even notice the fork in her hand until right now! Wow, we look forward to the day when we’re famous enough to make our opinions known by grabbing celebrities’ wieners. Until then, we aren’t allowed back on the N train.

How gorgeous did everyone look at the massive Vanity Fair Oscar party at the Sunset Tower in West Hollywood! We had already seen the likes of winners Natalie Portman and Colin Firth at the show, but plenty of other celebrities, who we hadn’t necessarily focussed on, came out to play. And one couple who got adorably frisky together were Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber, who held hands and were quite cozy through out. Can we also say Selena rocked it in a gorgeous red Dolce & Gabbana gown? Sure it’s grown up, but Ms Gomez pulled it off admirably especially with the Biebs accessorizing her arm! She also was cutesy with pal Taylor Swift who sparkled (as usual) in a strapless gold beaded Zuhair Murad mini dress.
Gwyneth Paltrow also changed out of her Oscar gown into the Michael Kors number she wore to perform onstage, and posed with buddy Cameron Diaz. The latter’s legs went on for miles in a flirty short-short Carolina Herrera. Other couples included Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel who wore sexy Versace, and Stephen Moyer and Anna Paquin who looked great in a red Monique Lhuillier dress. For a fun gallery of stars at arguably, the most important post-Oscar bash, check out our gallery below. [Photos: Getty Images]

Glamour‘s Reel Moments event is a night celebrating stories written by women and brought to life on film by female directors. This year, the directors included Jessica Biel, Eva Mendes and Rachel Weisz, and their films can be viewed on the Reel Moments website.
In addition to their talent, they also have the ability to look flawless on the red carpet – just check out Mendes and Biel as proof. Demi Moore, who directed a film for the event last year, was also there looking effortlessly cool and casual. There will be no black bars over any of these ladies’ eyes, that’s for sure. Does Glamour still do the Fashion Do and Don’ts? Is that reference still topical? Doesn’t matter, point is, these ladies are all smoking hot.
The action-comedy The Other Guys comes out this week, and it was a who’s who of random celebrities at the premiere. Will Ferrell and his co-stars Mark Wahlberg and Eva Mendes were looking good, but the rest of the crowd’s aesthetic was a mish-mash of unwashed beardo chic mixed with weird dress choices, topped off with Coco and Ice-T. We need to get Marion Cotillard to start doing comedies so she can glam up these premieres, some of these looks are just…not good.
Check out our gallery of these guys and some other guys below.
