The gorgeous guys did not disappoint last night at the Golden Globe Awards. In fact, they practically ruled the red carpet with their dapper hairdo's, handsome tuxedos and killer smiles. Robert Pattinson looked amazing, as did Eddie Redmayne, Hugh Dancy and Tom Sturridge next to his lovely baby mama Sienna Miller. See all of the mad masculinity this Monday morning and let me know who got your heart racing most.
It was a memorable evening in LA last night for The Impossible stars Ewan McGregor and Naomi Watts as the pair stepped out for their official West Coast premiere. Ewan, dressed in Balenciaga, was joined on the carpet by his wife, Eve Mavrakis, while Naomi hit the event solo in a beautiful Zac Posen gown and Jimmy Choo stilettos. Naomi and Ewan posed for photos with costar Tom Holland, who plays their son, as well as Maria Belon, the 2004 tsunami survivor whose family inspired the film. Fellow tsunami victim Petra Nemcova also made it out to the event, in a beautiful strapless coral gown, to show her support.
Ewan and Naomi chatted with us about their experience making the film and the intense emotions they went through during production — stay tuned for more from our exclusive interviews! Naomi talked about getting to know Maria as well as the upcoming award season. Naomi's performance in The Impossible is already earning praise; she's among the best actress nominees announced earlier today during the Critics' Choice nominations.
Naomi Watts hit the red carpet alongside Ewan McGregor at the BFI IMAX theater in London last night to debut their movie The Impossible. She showed some skin in a Tom Ford black dress, and Ewan was his typical fashion-forward self in a dark gray checkered suit. She and Ewan's movie is based on the true story of a family of five vacationing in Thailand during the 2004 Asian tsunami, and it arrives in select US theaters Dec. 21. It's actually the second time Naomi and Ewan have worked together; they also costarred in 2005's Stay.
Naomi's partner, Liev Schreiber, wasn't able to attend, since he's back in NYC shooting his own movie. Liev's been logging long hours on the Brooklyn set of Fading Gigolo with Vanessa Paradis. He was, though, able to take a break over the weekend to bring their oldest son, Sasha, to see the Knicks play the Indiana Pacers.
Watching Naomi Watts and Ewan McGregor in the trailer for The Impossible, it's hard to believe it's been almost eight years since a massive tsunami rocked Southeast Asia. As we all know, the giant tidal wave hit the region the day after Christmas, and in the new film based on a real family, Watts and McGregor play husband and wife vacationing with their young sons in Thailand during that time. The family is playing by the resort's pool when the unexpected wave breaks, smashing everything in its path and separating their family.
It looks as though the whole family survives — though they are taken in different directions — but this is still a pretty emotional trailer. By the time the cover of U2's "One" swells up, I was already reaching for the tissues. The Indian Ocean earthquake and resulting tsunami were a huge global tragedy, and it can be tricky to tackle these real-life catastrophes in movies. Having said that, it looks like The Impossible is taking a good route by telling the story on a micro-level, as it was experienced by just one family. The movies comes out Dec. 21, and you can check out the trailer after the jump.
Costars Emily Blunt and Ewan McGregor teamed up in NYC last night for a screening of their independent film Salmon Fishing in the Yemen at the Crosby Street Hotel. They were joined by fellow actor Patricia Clarkson, who came out to lend her support to the project. Emily and Ewan premiered the film in LA on Monday, and today the feature rolls out to a nationwide audience. Emily paired perfect cat-eye makeup with a Naeem Khan dress and Chopard jewels for her West Coast appearance, but for her latest stop she went with another chic black and white look. Next month Emily returns to the big screen in a comedy, The Five-Year Engagement, sharing the spotlight with Jason Segel.
Ewan McGregor and Emily Blunt teamed up for the premiere of their film Salmon Fishing in the Yemen last night at the Directors Guild of America in Hollywood. Emily paired a tea-length Naeem Khan dress with Chopard jewels at the debut while Ewan suited up in Dolce & Gabbana. Her husband, John Krasinski, wasn't on hand to pose for pictures with her, but Ewan's wife Eve Mavrakis joined him on the red carpet for a few photos. Ewan and Emily costar in the new movie as a team tasked with bringing the sport of fishing to the middle of a sheik's Yemeni desert. The film, which comes from the screenwriter of Slumdog Millionaire and the director of Chocolat, opens this Friday. The feel-good story will be Emily's last big-screen foray until The Five-Year Engagement opposite Jason Segel. That comedy will give the actress the chance to show off her humorous side when it hits theaters this Spring.
Blake Lively was decked out in Dolce & Gabbana last night for the NYC premiere of Haywire. She's not in the movie, but leads Ewan McGregor and Gina Carano were there from the cast, along with director Steven Soderbergh. The picture hits theaters tomorrow on Jan. 20, and so far the Haywire reviews are great. Justin Bartha and Elizabeth Banks also rolled through to check out the screening, and joined the festivities at the afterparty, held at Sons of Essex.
Blake and Steven will work together soon, though. It was recently announced that Blake will star in Soderbergh's The Side Effects opposite Channing Tatum and Jude Law. For now, it's Gossip Girl that's Blake's main focus, as is her relationship with Ryan Reynolds.
Michelle Williams clutched her best actress in a comedy or musical Golden Globe for My Week With Marilyn en route to the Weinstein Company's afterparty last night. She posed on the carpet withouth her best friend and date, Busy Philipps. The girls met up inside, though, and Busy later tweeted her happiness for Michelle. Busy wrote, "That was genuinely one of the most fun nights ever. So incredibly proud of my best friend!" Harvey Weinstein got shout-outs in mutiple acceptance speeches last night, being alternatively referred to as "the punisher," or in a memorable quip from Meryl Streep, as "God." Meryl was another winner who turned out for the company's event. She took home the best actress in a drama honor for The Iron Lady.
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, who's a close friend of Harvey's, caught up with his wife, Marchesa designer Georgina Chapman. Jason Statham, Rosie's boyfriend, was also there to share champagne with guys like Rob Lowe, Alexander Skarsgard, and Gerard Butler. Lots of stars and friends-of-the-famous rolled through the bash, including Lindsay Lohan, Paris Hilton, and a Beverly Hills housewife. Nominees like Octavia Spencer, Downton Abbey's Elizabeth McGovern, and winner Kelsey Grammer also stopped by — click through to see all the pictures!
George Clooney had lady friend Stacy Keibler on his arm last night to attend the 15th annual Hollywood Film Awards at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. The couple are fresh off a stint in Europe, where Stacy joined George for the Paris premiere of The Ides of March and a London screening of The Descendants. She represented her favorite football team with her purple Maria Lucia Hohan gown. Stacy tweeted, "Wearing my Ravens purple to the Hollywood Film Awards. . . Will have to keep checking the score on my phone." This was another big evening for George, who accepted the Hollywood Actor Award from his Descendants costar Beau Bridges.
Many more of George's fellow actors were honored, including Michelle Williams, who looked gorgeous in a black strapless Nina Ricci number. Michelle Williams accepted the Hollywood Actress Award once the show began, and later met up with her best friend Busy Philipps. However, Michelle was solo on the red carpet, and we caught a minute with her. She flew to California from the Michigan set of Oz: The Great and Powerful, and her daughter Matilda has been there to see the filming. Michelle said of the kid-friendly picture, "This one's for Matilda." Michelle shared room on the press line with other lovely ladies like a Pucci-clad Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Emma Stone in Jonathan Saunders, and Carey Mulligan in Bottega Veneta. Stay tuned for more news and pictures from inside the show!

Busy selected a trendy mint wrap dress for the event and recently told us she's considering recycling last year's homemade Tinkerbell costume for Halloween for her big night of trick-or-treating with daughter Birdie. Fresh off her win at last weekend's Scream Awards, newcomer Chloe Moretz was also on hand for the soiree as were Mad Men's Elisabeth Moss and actress Michelle Monaghan.
