Owen Wilson and Woody Harrelson kicked off 2008 with yet another dude vacation, this time getting back to Hawaii for some fun in the sun. Aaaaand smoothies! Yay! While we've been stuck with old reruns of Zoolander and Wedding Crashers to get our funny Owen fix recently (Darjeeling Limited was great, but not entirely feel good), he'll be coming back to the big screen soon enough. Buzz has the trailer for his upcoming movie, Drillbit Taylor. While the film looks pretty family friendly, we saw some of Owen's more personal parts while he was filming...or, you know, as it turned out, the personal parts of one famous butt double. Good times.
We've spent the last couple weeks having lots of fun reminiscing about all our favorite things in 2007. From the most adorable families to couples we can't take our eyes off and endless starlet drama, it was a year we won't soon forget. We can't wait to see everything that 2008 has in store. Check out our list of predictions (and hopes) — what do you think will happen with all our favorite celebrities this year?
- Shia gets a famous girlfriend
- Jessica Simpson's country album is a huge hit
- Lindsay Lohan finally makes a box office hit
- Sarah Larson gets knocked up
- Pam Anderson divorces (damn, too late on that one already...)
- Hayden Panettiere becomes a bad girl
- Gwen, Angie and Katie Holmes go for round 2 of pregnancy
- McAdams and Gosling get back together (in our dreams)
- Paris Hilton finally visits a third world country
- Nick and Vanessa get engaged
- Anything can happen! What do you predict?
Adorable Juno star Ellen Page was seen leaving the Late Show with David Letterman yesterday dressed in head to ankle blue. She did cut the color with those cool red Converse shoes. After reading Buzz's rave review of Juno I made sure to see the film over the holidays and it was the best $10 I've spent in a theater since Bourne. Ellen Page was fabulous as the quirky pregnant teenager and how could you not fall in love with Michael Cera — no wonder he won our rising star poll. For those of you who have yet to see Juno, it should be part of your New Year's resolutions.
Britney Spears has lost all visitation rights with her children until further notice. Her and Kevin's respective legal teams were in court this afternoon after Mark Vincent Kaplan made it clear that's what he would be asking for. TMZ is reporting that her rights have been suspended entirely until their next hearing on January 14, also that there are other court orders that will be made public on Monday. Meanwhile, the only word out of Brit's camp is that her entire family — Lynne, Jamie Lynn, Jamie and Bryan — are with her in the hospital and asking that people pray for their girl. As they left the courtroom Kaplan commented to the press, "There are no winners here."
Other tidbits of news from this ongoing story are that Brit may end up staying in the hospital for two weeks. Also the LAPD will not file any charges against her regarding last night and the bruise that Jayden James had when he went into the hospital was not from last night and Britney supposedly had nothing do with it.
In case you missed any of our previous coverage of last night's Britney debacle, check out the story here, an update here and our poll on whether or not you all were surprised (you weren't) here. As much as I saw another breakdown coming for Brit, I never expected this.

As her divorce goes forward, Pamela Anderson sought comfort in the arms of someone else last night: the mascot of the Vancouver Canucks ice hockey team. Pam was in Canada with some friends to catch a game after her NYE promo duties in Las Vegas. While we're all for finding support where you can, it's probably not in the mouth of a large furry whale. But hey, at least she's covered up this time.

Hugh Jackman spent some QT with his cuties Oscar and Ava at Centennial Park in Sydney earlier this week. It's pretty great to see Wolverine acting like such a doting dad, from shoulder rides to games of catch. It seems like Summer in Australia is the place to be these days — from natives like Hugh and Nicole, to visitors like Kate Bosworth, we have to admit that we're a little jealous of all the fun in the sun to be had on the other side of the globe.
More of Hugh playing in the park so just read more
Neil Patrick Harris and his boyfriend David Burtka returned home to LAX after a relaxing vacation in Hawaii looking very cute and very very tan. Both halves of this acting couple are set to appear on January 17 at the Ojai Playwrights Conference Winter Gala, where they will participate in a reading. Something tells me it will be a little more serious affair than his How I Met Your Mother fare, but it would be so fun to meet NPH nonetheless. Legendary even, heh.
Sarah Jessica Parker wasted no time getting back into her winter gear after her Hawaiian holiday with Matthew and James Wilkie. She almost looks like she's ready to leave town again, but to hit the slopes this time — not quite as chic as Carrie Bradshaw looks in a snowstorm. We bet that as we look forward to Spring for the Sex and the City movie, SJP wouldn't mind shedding a few of those layers for warmer temperatures.
