Seven days in entertainment
The action on the red carpet this week wasn’t limited to the Aussie debut of Iron Man. We found Meryl fencing, Taylor and Snoop snuggling, and the girls of Forgetting Sarah Marshall remembering to look truly unforgettable.
Iron Man star Robert Downey Jr. greets fans in Sydney at the Australian premiere of the superhero movie (out May 2).
Kristen Bell, the voice of The CW’s Gossip Girl, gets the dish from her Forgetting Sarah Marshall costar Mila Kunis at the movie’s Hollywood premiere on April 10. ”I almost don’t want to jinx it by calling myself a member of the Apatow gang. Just to get the chance to work alongside them makes me feel like a little kid who is working with her idols,” said Bell on joining the comedy kingpin’s crew.
WEB OBSESSION OF THE WEEK
Sure, re-creating The Hills, line by semi-scripted line, is nothing new. (Remember Kunis and James Franco’s riff on Audrina and Justin Bobby last fall?) But the joke never gets old — though the actors may, judging by the golden girls (and boys) in this latest spoof. The confrontation between a walker-wielding Lauren and a white-haired Heidi at Les Deux is one for the ages.
Country ingenue Taylor Swift cozies up to rap impresario Snoop Dogg at the CMT Music Awards in Nashville on April 14.
COOKING THE BOOKS
Shooting a scene for Julie & Julia, Amy Adams (as a Julia Child-obsessed blogger) hits the racks at Strand, a beloved New York bookstore.
Honored at the Film Society of Lincoln Center’s annual gala on April 14 in NYC, Meryl Streep brandishes her prize with glee.
