Scarlett Johansson posed with her friends Zach Braff and Justin Bartha backstage on Saturday night at the debut of their play All New People. Zach wrote and directed the Second Stage Theater production, and Justin plays the lead. Scarlett, who acted in a Broadway play last year herself, was solo as she turned out to support the guys at the well-reviewed premiere. Scarlett and her ex Ryan Reynolds were spotted having a cozy dinner date in LA just last week, but the actress hasn't been linked to any other new guys since her recent split from Sean Penn. Instead, she has been focusing on work. She not only shot We Bought a Zoo opposite Matt Damon, but she's also currently starring as Black Widow in The Avengers.
Bradley Cooper and his The Hangover Part II castmates Ed Helms, Zach Galifianakis, Justin Bartha, and Jamie Chung greeted fans at last night's Berlin premiere. The sequel, which hits theaters today, throws the wolf pack back into familiar circumstances after another bachelor party goes awry — read The Hangover Part II reviews to see what critics think of how the new installment compares to part one. The stars and director Todd Phillips had their first screening event last week on the West Coast, and made a stop in NYC for another showing earlier this week. Bradley managed to swing by SNL during his stay in the Big Apple, and joined host Justin Timberlake for the afterparty with Olivia Wilde. Bradley and Olivia were spotted sharing an intimate chat during the soiree, fueling rumors that they're dating.
The many men of The Hangover Part II gathered at Grauman's Chinese Theatre last night for their big LA premiere. Bradley Cooper was dapper in a Tom Ford suit and flashed a big smile for photographers next to his costars Zach Galifianakis and Ed Helms — they even had Crystal the Monkey there! Ken Jeong was one of the first down the carpet, and he spoke to us about his excitement at reuniting with the guys. He even admitted to being open to expanding his Mr. Chow character in a possible spinoff. Ken, who's actually an MD in real life, said his medical knowledge came in handy when some of his castmates came down with food poising while they filmed in Thailand! Ed Helms was likewise thrilled to get a meatier part in the sequel. His small-screen project, The Office, aired its season finale yesterday, and Ed revealed that he doesn't know what's next, but Steve Carell's rumored replacement, Catherine Tate, is a pro. The screening brought out plenty of famous faces, like cute couple Kristen Bell and Dax Shephard, Mike Tyson, and a super-pregnant Alyssa Milano. Kristen and Crystal shared an especially intimate moment. Stay tuned for more on today's PopSugar Rush!
After a funny but ultra-brief teaser, we now a full trailer for The Hangover Part II. Just like the first film, the guys are on the verge of a wedding, but this time it's Stu's, and instead of Vegas, they're in Thailand.
Although the trailer is definitely funny and holds lots of promise for more outrageous humor (you can't go wrong with a face tattoo bit), there's no originality to this follow-up story. From the bachelor trip to the loss and subsequent search for one of their posse, the plot is exactly the same. Even the nature of the jokes is about the same, which makes me think this movie will have no surprises. I loved the first movie, and I still love this gang, but I wish that there would be more to look forward to come May 26 when the movie is released. Let me know if you agree when you read more
Celebs toasted the Tribeca Film Festival last night during a cocktail reception at the W Hotel in Hollywood. The event begins on April 20 in NYC, but stars including Malin Akerman, Dax Shepard, Anna Kendrick, and Kate Walsh got an early start to the celebration of independent filmmaking at the packed LA party. Malin's Bang Bang Club, which also costars Ryan Phillippe, and Kate's Angel's Crest will be among the first movies to screen at this year's fest. Yesterday evening also marked one of Justin Bartha's first public appearances since his split from Ashley Olsen, and The Hangover star was spotted catching up and laughing with friend Zach Braff inside the soirée. Zach will be a featured speaker at Tribeca this year, and fans can already start submitting questions for the Garden State director online.
Scarlett Johansson was all smiles last night at the The Art of Elysium Pieces of Heaven Art Auction, hosted by Vanity Fair in LA. She made a note of her bids among other celeb guests including Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Elijah Wood and Amber Heard. Odette Yustman attended with her husband Dave Annable, while Ginnifer Goodwin looked great in her LBD. David Arquette was also at the event hours before his post-rehab Oprah appearance aired, in which he revealed he had his first drink at the age of four, stole pot from his dad at the age of eight, and spoke about his intervention led by Courteney Cox and his sister Patricia. Anna Kendrick, Glee's Jayma Mays, and Justin Bartha were among the other charitable guests at the event.
Following the Golden Globe Awards last night, there were some huge parties to celebrate where some celebs that attended the ceremony — and some that didn't — showed up to party the night away. While Taylor Lautner was at the ceremony, he hung out with Glee's Matthew Morrison and was joined at an afterparty by his New Moon costars Ashley Green and Kellan Lutz. Lindsay Lohan showed up in a sparkling minidress with a hood, while Ashley Olsen wore a bright blue dress to party with Justin Bartha.
Gossip Girl stars Ed Westwick and Jessica Szohr were in a rush to get into the party, while Chloe Sevigny changed out of her ceremony dress — which ripped while she was onstage collecting her award! Drew Barrymore and Justin Long partied together, and Sandra Bullock greeted Jaime Pressley with a similar kiss to the one she greeted Meryl Streep with at the Critics Choice Awards!
