It was a star-studded night at the Dallas Buyers Club premiere in LA last night. Jennifer Garner and Jared Leto were both flying solo, while Matthew McConaughey brought along his wife, Camila Alves. The film has been picking up steam since it debuted at the Toronto International Film Festival last month, though it's not set to hit theaters until Nov. 1. Even ahead of the film's release date, it has been attracting plenty of buzz for its transformative and brilliant performances. Jared Leto morphs himself into the transgendered business partner of Tom Woodroof, played by McConaughey, and Matthew dropped 50 pounds to play the Texan AIDS patient. Jennifer Garner also joins the film as a doctor. See all the pictures from the premiere event!
Matthew McConaughey suited up in Dolce & Gabbana for the red carpet premiere of Dallas Buyers Club at the Toronto International Film Festival on Saturday night. He was joined by his wife, Camila Alves, and costars Jennifer Garner and Jared Leto on the red carpet before heading into the film's screening. Matthew has been garnering lots of praise for his performance as an AIDS patient in the 1980s drama, and he and Jared have both gotten tons of attention for their dramatic transformations in the movie. Matthew shed nearly 50 pounds to portray hard-partying Texan Ron Woodroof, while Jared Leto appears in drag to play Ron's trangender business partner, Rayon.
Jennifer Garner, who appears as a doctor in the film, arrived at the big event in a flirty lace Dolce & Gabbana dress and nude heels. She broke from shooting her latest project Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day in LA and touched down in Toronto earlier this week for the festivities. Be sure to check out the trailer for Dallas Buyers Club before it hits theaters on Nov. 1.
The trailer for Dallas Buyers Club is here, and like the first pictures from the movie, the preview is eye-opening. It's not just for the actors' looks, it's for their performances. An emaciated Matthew McConaughey plays Ron Woodroof, a hard-partying Texan who learns he has AIDS in the early 1980s. Told he has just 30 days to live, Ron becomes unsatisfied with current treatments and heads to Mexico for more effective — but unapproved — drugs. Soon he's running a club of sorts, bringing the drugs back into the US for other patients, including transgendered Rayon (Jated Leto). Is he a drug dealer or an angel?
Jennifer Garner also costars in the drama as one of Ron's doctors, but it's clear that the heavy performances are going to be from McConaughey and Leto. McConaughey doesn't get to show off his dramatic acting chops often enough, so I'm eager to see him in such a demanding role, but Leto could end up being the standout here; even with a few lines, he impressed me in the trailer. Dallas Buyers Club comes out Nov. 1 — right on time for award season consideration — and you can watch the trailer after the jump.
Jennifer Lopez and her boyfriend, Casper Smart, got dressed up in their black-tie finest to attend Saturday's UNESCO Charity Gala in Dusseldorf, Germany. They mingled at the charity event with other celebrities like Eva Herzigova and Jared Leto. Jennifer, clad in Lanvin, accepted an honor with her sister Lynda for their philanthropic work.
J Lo was able to fit the evening out on the town into her busy European touring schedule. She's due to perform in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, this evening, and then will return to Germany, to the town of Oberhausen, for a Halloween show. One date has been particularly significant to J Lo. She and Casper celebrated their one-year anniversary last Thursday, and he sweetly used their nicknames for each other in a loving tweet. Casper wrote, "Happy one year anniversary to the most gorgeous, kind, sweet, funny, beautiful lil' bear in the world." In return, Jennifer tweeted, "Thank you for sharing your beautiful smile with me everyday."

I hope Lady Gaga has already started working on some new crazy outfits, because she might be getting a whole lot of stage time for the VMAs on Sept. 12th. She scored 13 nominations (the most ever in a single year) — though she shares many with Beyoncé thanks to their collaborations on "Telephone" and "Video Phone." It's not just ladies' night though; Eminem earned himself eight nominations, including video of the year.
As expected, Ke$ha, Katy Perry, and Jay-Z were well-represented, but there are a few surprises, too. I'm happy to see one of my personal favorites, The Black Keys' "Tighten Up," score a nod for breakthrough video. We're still waiting to hear who's hosting this one, but it'll be a star-studded night regardless. To see the full list, just read more
