It can happen to the best of us. One minute you’re lounging in your silken dressing robes, sipping cognac while you stare into a fire made out of $100 bills, the next minute you realize, whoops, you forgot to make those lease payments on your private island! For the past 12 years! Oh, did we mention that you’re a famous actor in this scenario?
Rather than pull a Wesley Snipes (too soon?) and settle for homemade toilet wine while serving 3-5, most actors would instead start taking any role they can get to pump their bank accounts back into shape. And we do mean any: a filthy wizard, a GCI Great Dane, even a Katherine Heigl type. So we offer for your approval the Ten Biggest Hollywood Hacks of 2010, ten actors who seemed almost certainly to have been in it for the money, tax issues or otherwise. The economy might be in the gutter, but that doesn’t mean celebrities can’t get paid millions of dollars to star in awful, awful movies. By the way, are you going to finish that toilet wine?
No, Sarah Jessica Parker did not have a wardrobe malfunction at the Sex And The City 2 premiere in London today—unless you want to call her decision to wear this outfit one. Combining aspects of Janet Jackson‘s Super Bowl slip and Lady Gaga‘s fondness for over-the-top outfits with a little British class (a little), Parker looked like a tree from a Tim Burton movie (it’s disappointing she didn’t have an Oompa Loompa or Jack Skeleton hiding under her bustle). Though Cynthia Nixon‘s tight blue dress would be flattering on any day, in the context of SJP’s monstrosity, that ginger was bangin’. Get a good look at what the ladies wore in the gallery below.

Despite what you might think, there were actually men at the Sex And The City 2 premiere in NYC last night—and not just men from the cast or men married to castmembers (hello, Matthew Broderick). For instance, Valentino was there. He’s a dude! Also, Johnny Weir—yes, a male athlete who enjoys Sex And The City! A jock! Howard Stern went along with wife Beth Ostrosky and his daughter (bet he had a great time, totally wasn’t just there to get his ladies on the guest list or anything), and he may well have talked about the film later with other good husbands like Jerry Seinfeld, Donald Trump and George Stephanopoulos, who certainly weren’t gritting their teeth as Sarah Jessica Parker and her pals enjoyed the luxuries of Abu Dhabi.
Despite the obvious cross-gender appeal, women definitely dominated the event, with Jennifer Love Hewitt, Michelle Trachtenberg, Whitney Port, Gabourey Sidibe, Ashanti, Jessica Szohr and many more joining the cast on the red carpet. See what everyone wore in the gallery below.

In the first production still to be released from Sex and the City 2, it looks like costume designer Patricia Field stepped up her game for the sequel with high shine and full-on glam. In this scene, SATC stars Cynthia Nixon, Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall, and Kristin Davis are each sporting their own light-reflecting look as they appear to be participating in karaoke. Marriage? Children? Nothing can slow down the fab foursome! [Photo: Warners Bros.]
