Ben Affleck attended the Children Mending Hearts benefit event in Pacific Palisades yesterday with several celebrity friends. His wife Jennifer Garner was also spotted at the fundraising party. Ben and Jennifer welcomed new baby Samuel last month, and kids were top of mind at the weekend bash, which helped raise money in support of after-school programs. Ben spent some time catching up with George Clooney's producing partner Grant Heslov during the outdoor festivities and also made time to take pictures with a few of his young fans. Tobey and Jennifer Maguire, Adam Pally of Happy Endings, and Sam Trammell of True Blood were among the other guests at the party, and manning the turntables was none other than Connor Cruise. Nicole Kidman and Tom Cruise's son is pursuing a career as a DJ and has been spinning at several high-profile events as of late.
Rachel Zoe threw on a Ports 1961 dress last night to attend Elle's Women in TV dinner at LA's Soho House, hosted by Joe Zee, with her adorable husband Rodger Berman. The super stylist was joined on the red carpet by How I Met Your Mother's Cobie Smulders, and a curve-showing Sofia Vergara, who just revealed that she's designing a line for K-Mart. True Blood's Sam Trammell balanced out the ladies, as did Sofia's Modern Family costar Jesse Tyler Ferguson. The celebs all mingled inside, and Sofia snapped a photo of her good times with Sam and Jesse. Rachel, meanwhile, dished about the foods she's loving while pregnant. She said, "I really enjoy things that are tart, like strawberries and grapefruit. . . Sour things like that, but nothing really weird."

James Franco was joined by lots of famous friends and family last night at the LA premiere of 127 Hours, just one day after he attended the film's NY red carpet. James, who plays hiker Aron Ralston in the movie, told us filming was extremely demanding and weighed in on the buzzed-about amputation scene. James thinks the gore has caused some people to faint because of the strong emotional connection they make to the real-life story. James's younger brother Dave Franco came to support his sibling, as did several stars of True Blood, Twilight's Kellan Lutz, and dad-to-be Orlando Bloom. Even with the impressive celebrity turnout, the spotlight was on James all night — his costar, Kate Mara, gushed to us that working with the multitalented star was simply "incredible." 127 Hours is out later this month and Buzz says it's among the November releases that may make you feel thankful this season.
