The Maui Film Festival brought a range of stars to Hawaii over the weekend, and there was plenty of time away from screening and ceremonies. Josh Radnor, who picked up the Triple Threat Award last week, was free to get shirtless at the beach with a new lady friend. The How I Met Your Mother star played on the sand Saturday with a bikini-clad Julia Jones, who's best known as playing one of the werewolves in the Twilight series. There was similar waterside fun in store for Elizabeth Banks, who played with her husband, Max, and son, Felix, that afternoon.
That night, it was James Marsden's turn to be feted. James received the Nova Award for original performances, and Elizabeth dressed up to attend a party in his honor. James said of the prize, "It's sort of an achievement award for playing diverse roles . . . One of the defining things about me as an actor is I'm a guy who plays a lot of different roles." Yesterday, Elizabeth threw on a pretty dress for an official event during the festival. She took home the Navigator Award and said a few words after accepting a plaque. Elizabeth then presided over a screening of her new movie, People Like Us.
