If there was one celebrity on the red carpet who you would have guessed would dye her hair pink, our bet is that it wouldn't have been Helen Mirren. But lo and behold, the Hitchcock star strutted her stuff sporting a new cotton candy hue in her hair. "I saw it on America's Next Top Model, so I decided to have a go," she said. Helen's hair was definitely the standout look of the evening, but what do you think of the new shade?

Good news if you thought that 2010's surprise hit about retired black-ops agents Red was a great time, because Bruce Willis and co. are back for another spin. Though Frank (Willis) is happy living a relaxed, nonviolent life with Sarah (Mary-Louise Parker), he gets pulled back into another mission by Marvin (John Malkovich) and Victoria (Helen Mirren). This time, the villain is a glam and mysterious Catherine Zeta-Jones, whose character appears to have a rather intimate past with Frank (or she's just really, really friendly).
The sequel has the same kind of quirkiness as the original and plenty of action, but as with the first installment, the real draw here looks like Mirren, who's both beautiful and badass as a former CIA agent. Red 2 comes out Aug. 1, and you can get a look at the trailer now after the jump.
The 24th annual Palm Springs International Film Festival drew boldfaced Hollywood names on Saturday night. Stars including Ben Affleck, Naomi Watts, and Bradley Cooper were honored for their onscreen work, while Tom Hanks, Eddie Redmayne, Diane Lane, and other celebs presented the evening's awards. We were on the red carpet and inside for the star-studded dinner, where several of the awardees shared moving, funny, and heartfelt speeches. Naomi, who accepted the evening's Desert Palm Achievement Award for an actress from her The Impossible costar Tom Holland, thanked her longtime partner, Liev Schreiber, for inspiring her. She also expressed gratitude for their two young sons, Sasha and Kai, for "breathing life into me."
Birthday boy Bradley Cooper — who turned 38 yesterday — gave a short and humble speech when accepting the corresponding award for actor for his work in Silver Linings Playbook. It was one of newly single Bradley Cooper's first nights out since splitting from Zoe Saldana. Bradley couldn't escape host Mary Hart, who led the audience in a round of "Happy Birthday" in his honor before he left the stage. As Ben Affleck and his Argo cast closed the show, taking home the ensemble performance award, Ben asked Mary if she'd prompt the crowd to sing "Happy Birthday" for him, as well. "When's your birthday?" Mary asked. Ben replied, "August."
Anthony Hopkins plays legendary filmmaker Alfred Hitchcock in Hitchcock, and as the "master of suspense," Hopkins is scarily good. The film follows the director for only a handful of months, while he's overcoming opposition to make iconic horror film Psycho. It's a fascinating subject — the studio feared it would be a tasteless slasher film, and the criticism only seemed to fuel Hitchcock's resolve. However, while Hopkins's performance is admirable and the movie is energetic, Hitchcock isn't nearly as memorable as the films the director was known for.
While Psycho's development gives Hitchcock its time frame, "Hitch"'s relationship with his wife, Alma Reville (Helen Mirren), is also used to illustrate his life. At the time the film takes place, the couple is verging on a rough patch due to a host of things, including finances and extramarital temptations. While the marital discord makes you think of them as an average couple and Mirren is predictably fantastic, it's less interesting than the story of Psycho. Find out what else I thought after the jump.
Jessica Biel wore Gucci to the LA premiere of Hitchcock last night. She was joined on the red carpet by two of her fellow leading ladies, a Dolce & Gabbana-clad Helen Mirren and Toni Collette, in Alex Perry. Jessica tweeted a photo of herself with Helen and Toni, captioning it, "Lemme tell you about my girl crush on these two. . . Helen and Toni!"
The trio were together for another screening Sunday in NYC with costar Scarlett Johansson, who missed out on the West Coast event. Scarlett was at the Late Show yesterday, having stayed behind in the Big Apple ahead of her 28th birthday tomorrow. Scarlett and Jessica weren't together last night, but they can be seen side by side in our exclusive clip from Hitchcock, which is out in theaters Friday.
Scarlett Johansson and Jessica Biel attended the NYC premiere of their movie, Hitchcock, last night at the Ziegfeld Theatre. They went for very different looks on the red carpet: Scarlett was edgy in a Rodarte mini, while Jessica went for something a bit more mature in an Oscar de la Renta combo, which she paired with Lorraine Schwartz earrings. Whose Hitchcock premiere look do you prefer? Helen Mirren, meanwhile, donned Dolce&Gabbana.
Jessica and Scarlett posed for photos alongside their costars Toni Collette, Helen Mirren, and Danny Huston after doing a long day of press at the junket together. Jessica joked on Twitter about how the ladies all looked at different photographers during the group shots. She wrote, "Our Hitchcock cast! Clearly no one knew where to look and when . . . " Missing from the fun was Anthony Hopkins, who plays the title role. Anthony Hopkins's Hitchcock impression looked quite good from Hitchcock's trailer, and moviegoers can see it for themselves when the picture arrives in theaters this Friday, Nov. 23.
The trailer for Hitchcock looks like it's going to prove that some of the most fascinating movies are the ones about the movie business. Anthony Hopkins plays legendary director Alfred Hitchcock in this drama, which focuses on the time in his life when he was making the film Psycho, as well as his relationship with his wife, Alma Reville (Helen Mirren). As a Hitchcock fan, it's exciting to watch the iconic horror film going through production (which includes a wigged-up Scarlett Johansson as starlet Janet Leigh), though I had no idea that the director had encountered such opposition when he was making Psycho. It's fun watching the drama unfold — and witnessing the sometimes funny dynamic between Hitchcock and his wife.
Hopkins does an impressive rendering of Hitchcock in this preview, but really, everything presented here looks fantastic. There's a great cast (Toni Collette and Jessica Biel also star), a bit of Psycho's signature creepiness (poor Johansson looks like she's genuinely being tortured in the infamous shower scene), and a taste of the tense score by Danny Elfman. Hitchcock comes out Nov. 23, and you can watch the trailer after the jump.
On moderation: "I've never done anything to excess," she told People. "I've never drunk or eaten too much. It helps to stay balanced."
On that famous bikini shot: "I happened to be holding my stomach in because my husband was taking my photograph," she said. "Three weeks every six months, I decide to work out. I'm unbelievably lazy. If I had any form of self-discipline, I would look a lot better than I do."
On why younger isn't always better: "The hardest period in life is one's twenties," she told Esquire. "It's a shame because you're your most gorgeous and you're physically in peak condition. But it's actually when you're most insecure and full of self-doubt. When you don't know what's going to happen, it's frightening."
On fashion's obsession with thin: "I think it is completely iniquitous to have incredibly skinny girls on the runway. A lot of the girls are horrifically thin and of course they have a problem. Mostly the fashion industry chooses to turn a blind eye . . . The whole thing is based on fantasy," she's said.
George Clooney attended the National Board of Review Awards gala with girlfriend Stacy Keibler last night at NYC's Cipriani 42nd Street. Many other stars went out for the Big Apple event as well, include a Nina Ricci-wearing Keira Knightley and Emma Stone in J. Mendel.
George was on hand to pick up a best actor statue for The Descendants, and his leading lady, a L'Wren Scott-clad Shailene Woodley took home best supporting actress. We Need to Talk About Kevin's Tilda Swinton wore Haider Ackermann to accept best actress, and Emma Stone joined costars Octavia Spencer, Jessica Chastain, and Viola Davis onstage to collect their best ensemble film statue for The Help. Hugo, meanwhile, was crowned best movie. Michael Fassbender, who looked great in his suit, won a special spotlight award for the many films he starred in last year.
