Jessica Alba and Amy Poehler share the screen in A.C.O.D., which premiered Wednesday night at the Sundance Film Festival. Adam Scott, who produced the film, and also plays Amy's love interest on Parks and Recreation, joined the leading ladies and the rest of the cast for the red carpet and afterparty. Jessica came to Utah straight from Paris Couture Week in France, but all that travel didn't slow her down. Jessica and her friends looked to be in great spirits as they celebrated at Silver on Main Street. Jessica also shared sweet photos of herself posing with the rest of the A.C.O.D. cast, including Amy and Adam.
Dakota Fanning and Elizabeth Olsen continued celebrating their Sundance Film Festival movie Very Good Girls at Fresh's celebratory "Fresh Faces of Sundance" brunch Rock and Reilly's on Wednesday. We stopped by to chat with the two young actresses about working with director Naomi Foner, mother to Jake and Maggie Gyllenhaal. Naomi's son-in-law, Peter Sarsgaard, also has a role in the film, which is just one example of how connected the family is. Dakota spoke about working with Naomi, saying, "I mean, you meet Naomi, and she's like instant maternal love. . . . If you meet Naomi, you meet Ramona, and you meet Jake, and you meet Maggie, and you meet Peter. They are such a connected family — they're very open, warm, loving people." This motherly nature also helped Dakota feel more comfortable with the role, which is a more revealing and risqué part than she's taken on before. Elizabeth and Dakota also shared that they have the same circle of friends and signed on for Very Good Girls simultaneously after chatting about it at a "bonfire in a friend's backyard."
Jake Gyllenhaal stepped out to support mom Naomi Foner, the screenwriter behind Very Good Girls, at the film's Sundance Film Festival premiere last night. He was joined by brother-in-law Peter Sarsgaard, who's married to Maggie Gyllenhaal and also stars in the picture. It was an extra busy night for Peter, since he also debuted Lovelace with Amanda Seyfried. Very Good Girls leading lady Dakota Fanning attended the screening at the Eccles Center theater and later on linked up with her and Peter's costar Elizabeth Olsen at an afterparty. Jake made the rounds with his pal Jenny Lewis. He looked good while doing so — Jake has a new look, with slicked-back hair, for a new project. He's been in Georgia making Prisoners with Hugh Jackman.

Maya Rudolph, Steve Carell, Allison Janney, Toni Collette, and Sam Rockwell joined the rest of their cast for their Sundance Film Festival premiere of The Way, Way Back on Monday. The movie, which is directed by the team who wrote The Descendants, immediately became one of the most buzzed-about debuts of the festival. The Way, Way Back has already been reportedly picked up by Fox Searchlight. The movie's title refers to the rear-facing back seat in older station wagons, and it takes place at a water park. On the red carpet, we spoke to Maya, Steve, and Sam about some of their best and worst Summer jobs ever. Maya revealed that she lied about her age to get a job at a cool clothing store when she was only 14. Steve, who was rocking a more salt-and-pepper look than we've seen before, joked that he actually dyes his hair gray. Check out lots more from our red-carpet interviews on today's PopSugar Rush!
Nicole Kidman showed off her wintry chic style in a fitted coat at the Sundance Film Festival premiere of her thriller Stoker on Sunday afternoon. Once inside the screening, Nicole showed off a very formfitting dress on stage. She was joined by her costars Mia Wasikowska, Matthew Goode, and Dermot Mulroney on the red carpet. We got a first look at the movie's creepy vibe when the Stoker trailer was released in the Fall, and last night the audience was finally treated to Korean director Chan-wook Park's latest. Nicole then went on to party the night away with fellow festivalgoers. Nicole is coming right off her glamorous Golden Globes night with husband Keith Urban, though he skipped out on the trip to Park City, UT.
Matthew McConaughey was still looking lean, but clearly has been working to put back on the pounds as he premiered his movie Mud at Sundance on Saturday night. Reese Witherspoon, Matthew's leading lady in the film, didn't join him for the Park City, UT, red carpet. Matthew and Reese debuted their film in Cannes, and since then, it has been quietly gaining positive buzz and momentum. In recent months, the headlines about Matthew have been all about his weight loss for The Dallas Buyers Club, but this weekend, fans want to know about something else — his friendship with Lance Armstrong and his feelings about Lance's fall from grace. Matthew opened up a bit about his feelings of anger and disappointment in the wake of Lance's admissions. Matthew said that he was "pissed off" at Lance initially and that part of him took it personally, but then he felt sad when he watched Lance's interview.
Alexander Skarsgard was joined by his costars to premiere his new film, The East, at the Sundance Film Festival on Sunday. He posed for photos with Ellen Page and director Zal Batmanglij and happily greeted Brit Marling on the red carpet while she was taking pics. Later Alexander, Ellen, and Brit got together for a few friendly portraits to promote the movie, which follows a woman who is trying to infiltrate an anarchist group and becomes infatuated with the group's leader. Alexander, Ellen, and Brit are just a few of the celebrities who are showcasing their latest projects at Sundance.

Jessica Biel was casually chic at the premiere of her new movie, Emanuel and the Truth About Fishes, at the Sundance Film Festival on Friday night. Jessica was joined by her costars Kaya Scodelario and Alfred Molina on the red carpet, as well as Rooney Mara, who is a producer on the project. The film follows Kaya's character, Emanuel, who becomes obsessed with a neighbor who bears a striking resemblance to her dead mother. Jessica was without husband Justin Timberlake, who has been making his own headlines this past week. Justin released a new song — his first in six years — called "Suit and Tie" and announced that he would be releasing a new album, The 20/20 Experience, later this year.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt brought his first directorial feature film, Don Jon's Addiction, to Sundance on Friday evening. JGL also stars in the movie and he was joined by one of his leading ladies, Julianne Moore, at the premiere. Scarlett Johansson also has a part in Don Jon's Addiction, but she did not make it out to Park City, UT, for the event. JGL plays a man addicted to pornography and, after the screening, he spoke to the crowd, saying that he chose the topic because he "wanted to tell a love story, and in my observations, what always gets in the way of love are people objectifying each other." JGL is no stranger to Sundance, and along with his film, he is also hosting his annual "Record Room," where people can come watch performances and engage in the music-making process.
