Just a little over 2 weeks after giving birth to her new baby Henry Daniel, Julia Roberts was looking great out and about in LA on Monday. I wonder if seeing her around LA recently means that the Roberts-Moder family has moved into their newly eco-friendly mansion. Her beautiful family was nowhere to be seen in these pictures, but I imagine that she spent yesterday with them -- it is her and Danny's anniversary after all! Can you believe it's been 5 years since those two got married? Time flies.
In June's issue of Blender, Mandy was looking like the sweet star we've come to love but in July she went for something a bit edgier. Much like her magazine spreads, Mandy's latest album Wild Hope is her big chance to showcase the woman she's grown into - and how different she is from the gawky pop star she once was. Here's more from the article:
“It’s funny: I think that was my sexiest time, at 15 — my gawky body, swaying like a little stick figure. My most overtly sexy thing was the first one, right off the bat. And from there it was aaallll covered up. How accountable can you really be when you’re a kid in an adult world? There was no way they were going to give me any say over my music or my image at that point. But even at the time, I was like, ‘Oh, gosh, I really don’t like this song … ’”
This is me, and these are my words, and this is my taste in music. I feel like in many ways this is my last chance to do a record on this level. If this doesn’t work, how many opportunities do I get?
Regardless of what Mandy says, we find it hard to believe that this star is going away anytime soon. You guys prefer Mandy as an actress so we'd like to say she has that career to fall back on but after reading Buzz's review of License to Wed it sounds like she needs help picking better roles.
We've yet to see if Paris will follow through with her supposed charitable ventures now that she is out of jail, but she's already getting back to acting with some private lessons in LA. Whether or not she ever gets to helping out other people, there's one UCLA student who is definitely NOT being helped by Miss Hilton these days. The girl somehow inherited an old cell phone number of Paris' and is getting harassed at all hours of the day by people looking for one thing or another from the heiress. Pretty hilarious! Speaking of funniness related to Paris, you must check out Paris Hilton: The Power Ballad, inspired by the journal entry she read aloud during the Larry King Interview. It's classic (and has been stuck in my head all day)!

Ever since Michelle Williams debuted her new short hair she seems to have become Miss Grumpy. Michelle looked miserable walking sleeping baby Matilda in Brooklyn on Tuesday and then the following day with Heath as well. Michelle looked stunning going from long to short hair, but many of you think there are other celebs that have done it better. Perhaps it's because the others know how to let a smile light up their face. Hopefully Michelle will share that with us sometime again soon since we're normally a big fan. As for Heath, seriously, what's going on with his look these days?

Madonna got in some final work out time before her big performance at Saturday's Live Earth event. We're super excited to see the show with its already incredible line-up and possible surprise appearances. NBC will be broadcasting a 3 hour special featuring highlights from all the concerts around the world, while Bravo will air 18 hours of live coverage from the huge event. The whole thing will also be streaming live on MSN online. So we want to know, will you be watching?
Well hellooooooooo Becks! His pretty face is obscured by his helmet and sporty glasses (safety first!), but there is something very hot about David Beckham out on a bike ride in the South of France. Few men can pull off the spandex, but Becks just may be one of them. The rest of his family didn't come along for the ride, but we're going to be seeing A LOT of them in the coming weeks. In addition to Victoria's NBC special, ESPN is planning unprecedented coverage of David's LA Galaxy debut. There will be hours and hours of special programming leading up to his first game, at which there will be a camera devoted only to his every move during his debut performance. Sounds like a lot of pressure (yikes). But, all Becks all the time? Hot.
Jennifer Lopez kept up her trend of looking youthful and gorgeous on the August cover of Glamour magazine. Inside the pages all she wants to do is gush about her life with Marc. In fact, the two just announced that they are embarking on a joint tour in August after the release of their movie El Cantante! The concerts will be a mix of solos and duets in Spanish and English. I wonder if she ever busts out Jenny from the Block? Anyway, in Glamour she had this to say of working with her husband in the movie:
"It’s totally different than working with an actor you don’t know, where sometimes you have great chemistry and sometimes you don’t. When Marc and I work together, there’s no barrier or boundary. I think that’s how it is in all good relationships—you feel the most safe there. But on set, we kept it very professional: We bounced ideas off one another and treated each other like any other actor. We even had separate trailers—we gave each other our space... I think the best partner you can have is someone who makes you want to be the best form of yourself. We do that for each other; that’s why we work well together."
These two definitely have the working together thing all figured out. Which is good, considering it sounds like we're going to be seeing a lot more of this dynamic duo on stage, screen, radio, magazine pages...
For me, the countdown to Bourne is officially here! In less than one month Jason remembers. Buzz just posted the latest trailer and it's amazing. As if we weren't already getting our Affleck-Damon fix this summer with all those surfing pics, we now get the boys back in their old element - Vegas baby. Matt used to play the role in Rounders and Ben used to play professionally. The duo were there to raise money for the Enough Project and the International Rescue Committee which both provide help for survivors of the crisis in Darfur. Other celebs betting for good included Don Cheadle, Adam Sandler and David Spade.
Apparently Matty was knocked out early but Ben held his own. However, he said he has better things to do these days than play poker. Ben told People, "I've got a kid [daughter Violet, 2] and I'm directing movies. I have hardly any time now. Poker takes a lot of time if you want to stay good. I don't want to suck. I was good. I'm still good. Family is better though." Clearly this man is in a happy marriage and in love with the women in his life. This Ben is much better than the drinking, gambling bachelor from back in the day.
