Usually when a movie’s been on the shelf for over three years, the stars usually don’t want anything to do with it once it finally comes out—don’t mention Case 39 to Renee Zellweger or Bradley Cooper. So it’s hopefully a sign of relative quality that Topher Grace, Anna Faris, Michelle Trachtenberg and Dan Fogler all showed up for the premiere of Take Me Home Tonight, which they filmed all the way back in 2007. Sure, Faris met husband Chris Pratt on the set, but again…that didn’t mean much to Renee and Brad.
Also impressive is how many ’80s figures showed up to celebrate the film celebrating their decade of stardom: Deborah Gibson, Anthony Michael Hall, Ralph Macchio and Tawny Kitaen were just a few of the icons on hand, with future nostalgia marketers like Lance Bass and 50 Cent (wearing a velvet suit jacket!) on hand to take notes. Celebrity Rehab vets Leif Garrett and Rachel Uchitel showed up together as well—hope the on-screen coke use that kept the film off the market for so long wasn’t distracting for them.

rnrnThe explosive fourth season of Celebrity Rehab With Dr. Drew debuts tonight on VH1 at 10 p.m. ET/PT. This year’s cast — Jason “Gummi Bear” Davis, Janice Dickinson, Leif Garrett, Jeremy London, Frankie Lons, Rachel Uchitel, Jason Wahler and Eric Roberts — all publicly battled their demons in the harsh glare of the spotlight before being treated by Dr. Drew Pinsky and crew. While you’ll have to tune in each week to see how the cast deals with the difficulties of the program (not to mention withdrawal symptoms), the following slideshow highlights exactly the kind of shape (hint: not very good) that these celebrities were in before they checked into the Pasadena Recovery Center. rnrn
Leif Garrett was arrested for possession at a Metro station in LA on Monday, according to TMZ. A teen heartthrob in the mid-’70s, Garrett is arguably better known today for his battles with alcohol and drug abuse, chronicled in a legendary episode of VH1′s Behind The Music. Though he claimed to be nearly three years sober in the 1999 program, he was arrested for drugs again only months after it aired, and again in 2005. In 2006, Garrett served 90 days in prison for when cops found heroin on him after he tried to ride the Metro without a ticket. The actor was reportedly released from police custody earlier today, with a court date scheduled later this month.

It’s hard to believe that Britney Spears, once America’s favorite exhibitionist virgin, is a 27-year-old mother of two. And though her career may still have the aroma of trainwreck, it could be worse—she could be a trainwreck no one cares about. Check out the gallery to see how Britney today compares to ten other former teen stars at 27. For every Drew Barrymore she might envy, there’s a Leif Garrett to envy her.
