The stars of We Bought a Zoo gathered in NYC last night for their big premiere. Matt Damon walked the carpet with his wife Luciana close behind, as Scarlett Johansson and Elle Fanning showed off their lovely dresses. Elle picked a white Louis Vuitton number, while Scarlett went with the opposite in black Dolce & Gabbana. We caught a minute with the three stars yesterday, with Elle telling us about her holiday plans. She'd love a film camera for Christmas, and aspires to stop biting her nails in 2012! Scarlett, meanwhile, is looking to catch up on her sleep during her holidays. Matt is planning to take a break with his family, including his four daughters. Matt's latest movie, Almost Famous director Cameron Crowe's first-ever family film, hasn't earned him points with the little ones, though. He said that his kids definitely do not think he's a cool dad! Stay tuned for our report from the scene later today on PopSugar Rush.
Naomi Watts and Liev Schreiber joined famous friends like director Baz Luhrmann last night at the Tribeca Ball 2011. The annual fundraiser drew lots of creative celebs to the New York Academy of Art for dinner and drinks, and Naomi and Liev were arm-in-arm for much of the celebratory evening. The duo enjoyed the grown-up gathering after spending recent months focusing on their two boys, taking them to the park, on bike rides, and strolls around town.
Ryan Gosling posed with his onscreen family, Michelle Williams and Faith Wladyka, as well as their director Derek Cianfrance at a special Blue Valentine luncheon in NYC today. The event was hosted by The Weinstein Company, and the whole crew had a lot to celebrate since they won their appeal to bring the movie's rating down from NC-17 to R yesterday. Ryan and Michelle have had a full week promoting the film on the East Coast, including at Tuesday's premiere, where Blake Lively was spotted sneaking in the side door. She stuck by Ryan's side for the afterparty, and this afternoon he addressed the rumors of romance. Ryan said of Blake, "She's an incredible actress; she's a good friend," and when asked more generally about relationships in the industry, he quipped, "You're not allowed to have friends in this business." Blake is known for her sexy style, and she earned new respect for her work in The Town, while Ryan's big heart and charm make him so very hot. Not to mention he doesn't take himself too seriously, which makes Blake, whatever their status, a very lucky girl.

Familial relationships are often ripe for dramatic conflict and a few sniffles, and Happy Tears positions itself as such. Jayne (Parker Posey) and Laura (Demi Moore) are sisters who visit their father Joe (Rip Torn), a perverted yet somehow charming old man suffering from a serious case of dementia. Like many movie siblings, they're polar opposites: Jayne is the spoiled younger sister who lives in La La Land; Laura is more practically minded and down to earth.
Their bond (and sometimes hatred) often feels real (hey, they even look like sisters!) and could have made for a nice, simple drama on its own. Instead, the film gets lost in the midst of imagined sequences in Jayne's mind, making you wonder what kind of film Happy Tears really is. A sweet drama? A dark comedy? An art house film? As one of the dream scenes takes a naked Jayne flying on a giant jellyfish, I found myself wishing that the film had just stayed grounded.

Funny girl Parker Posey attended the screening of Happy Tears at The Museum of Modern Art in New York City wearing a colorful strapless dress chock full of Spring like colors that she smartly Winterized with black opaque tights and patent leather sandals.

Oh no! Poor Parker Posey has been diagnosed with Lyme disease. Due to her illness, the 40-year-old star of Best in Show is dropping out of her planned off-Broadway play, This. We wish her the best for a speedy recovery.
Posey certainly isn't alone. Lyme disease affects about 20,000 people in the United States each year, versus 10,000 new cases annually in the early '90s. Transmitted by blacklegged ticks, called deer ticks, in the eastern US and western blacklegged ticks on the West Coast, Lyme disease is caused by the Borrelia burgdorferi bacterium. Not every tick transmits Lyme disease, just the ones that have fed on infected animals. Learn how to recognize the symptoms and prevent Lyme disease when you read more
A weekly dose of Jason Schwartzman and Zach Galifianakis on my TV? Yes, please! HBO has released a teaser for its newest half-hour comedy series Bored to Death, which will premiere in September. Zach Galifianakis was recently added to the show, which is pretty brilliant casting given the success of The Hangover. The comedy star power doesn't end with those two — as you'll see in the trailer the series also features Ted Danson, Parker Posey, and Kristen Wiig. So great!
Schwartzman plays Jonathan, a struggling writer living in Brooklyn who drinks a lot. For no apparent reason he decides to become a private detective. Galifianakis plays his friend who writes comic books. The whole thing looks pretty funny and full of promise. To check out the trailer and tell me what you think, read more
