Blake Lively looked like a wedding cake with cleavage at a screening for The Private Lives Of Pippa Lee last night in NYC. Just the kind of relaxing ensemble you want to wear while watching yourself lie naked with Alan Arkin onscreen. “Well, I think it’s uncomfortable, laying in strategically placed clothes that are taped on your body, in front of some strangers,” said Lively about her intimate scenes with the 75-year-old Oscar winner. “We’re all actors, we’re all professionals and we all understood what was happening. Everybody is uncomfortable with those scenes. You’re never going to be comfortable being half-naked in front of anyone. But, it was fine. It was a short scene.”
Sadly, Arkin wasn’t around to share more camera time last night, though co-stars Robin Wright and Keanu Reeves did attend, as well as well-wishers Penelope Cruz, Marion Cotillard and Daniel Day-Lewis, whose wife Rebecca Miller directed the film. Check out their styles in the gallery below.
Sean Penn recently dropped out of The Three Stooges movie to try to patch things up with his wife, actress Robin Wright Penn. Sadly it seems the star was too late – Robin filed for divorce from her husband of 13 years last week.
The couple, who first hooked up in 1989 and have two kids, ages 18 and 16, have filed for divorce twice before, only to reconcile and call the split off. This time, however, things seem different. Though the Penns were trying to work out their issues as recently as May, they apparently hit a snag along the way. In an interview with Robin that came out Monday, she tells More magazine, “I know what I don’t want.”
And that, apparently, is her husband. [People. Photo: GettyImages]
Some stars bring their chicest getups to the Cannes Film Festival, and some totally miss the mark with their outfits. From sheer atrocities to overdone trim, these starlets really didn’t make the cut when it comes to red carpet fashion.

Deja vu! Sean Penn has filed to dismiss his latest legal separation from wife Robin Wright Penn less than a month after filing. The pair met on the set of State Of Grace in 1990 and married six years later, already the parents of two. They previously started divorce proceedings in late 2007, only to suspend them in April 2008. Make up your minds, you two!
Penn has yet to provide an explanation for his sudden change-of-heart. It couldn’t have been a whirlwind rekindling of their romance, though—Robin Wright Penn is busy in France as a juror at the Cannes Film Festival.

The yachts have pulled up, celebrities have started arriving, and with the hot fashion, positive reviews, and an overjoyed audience at the Up premiere (including Asia Argento,Ã‚Â Giovanni Ribisi,Ã‚Â Robin Wright Penn and Tilda Swinton), the 62nd Cannes Film Festival is off to a great start.
“It’s a terrific family adventure,” The Guardian said. The loud cheers from the typically critical and vocal Cannes audience also echoed the positive response to the animated Pixar film. As the audience watched through colored 3D glasses, there was nothing but clapping and whistling to be heard. Cannes is off to a great start! Check out our gallery of the Up premiere!
This year’s Cannes jury doesn’t run low on glamor. Headed by French actress Isabelle Huppert, the panel includes Asia Argento (found in everything from NC-17 art flicks to Vin Diesel‘s XXX), Robin Wright Penn, and Shu Qi from The Transporter among the international coterie of performers and directors. If their appearance at the festival-opening screening of Up is any indication, we should see them in plenty of beautiful outfits before they pick the Palme d’Or.
In the latest issue of Gotham magazine, Robin Wright Penn offers up her philosophy on marriage, in an interview presumably given right before her marriage with Sean Penn ended. She says it’s, “real work, but that’s what you sign up for. And it pays off beautifully, it really does. The outcome, the reward is so great because then your love grows out of those hard times.”
Er, or not. The couple have since split, and some insiders are naming Sean’s obsession with Natalie Portman as the reason. A source tells Star magazine that Robin, “was furious he was messing around with such a young star,” while another insists that Natalie, “stimulates him in ways no other person has, mentally or professionally. There’s a lot more there with Natalie than any of the other girls Sean’s been with.”
Portman’s always seemed to us like a smart, down to earth, goody two shoes. Would she really get down and dirty with a married man? [Photo: GettyImages]
Just over a year after halting their divorce proceedings, Sean Penn has filed for separation from wife Robin Wright (she was the one that filed in 2007). The pair met on the set of 1990’s State Of Grace and had two children, Dylan and Hopper, before marrying in 1996. Penn, previously married to Madonna, dated Jewel during a separation in the mid-nineties and attended Oscar parties with model Petra Nemcova in 2008.

Patricia Arquette and Robin Wright (Penn) made their respective big screen breakthroughs in 1987’s Nightmare On Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors and The Princess Bride. Arquette married and divorced actors Nicolas Cage and Thomas Jane in the twenty plus years since, while Wright almost divorced Sean Penn in 2007. Both actresses were born on April 8th. Which one is older?
