Jason Segel led the way for Matilda Ledger this morning in Red Hook, Brooklyn. The duo snacked on goodies from their Fairway supermarket bag before heading back to the home of Matilda's mom, Michelle Williams, not far away. Jason and Matilda are hanging out in NYC, while Michelle's been busy with work. Michelle went to Comic-Con in San Diego to chat up her new movie Oz: The Great and Powerful alongside her costar Mila Kunis and the picture's director Sam Raimi. Michelle spoke to us on the red carpet before her and Mila's panel to talk about Oz's great message. Michelle, who pays the Good Witch in the new retelling of The Wizard of Oz, said, "It's nice to put a little bit of good back into the world. It's part a family movie, and I was excited to be a part of that."

Comic-Con is still in full effect down in San Diego, and BuzzSugar editors Becky Kirsch and Shannon Vestal are bringing you the biggest highlights as they recap day two. Matt Damon told a funny anecdote about a very unglamorous day on the Elysium set, while Looper's Joseph Gordon-Levitt got a little giddy over Bruce Willis, and Bryan Cranston shared the one thing that got him prepped for his role in Total Recall: beer! We have the full rundown in this episode of The Buzz, and don't forget to check out our Thursday Comic-Con highlights in case you missed it.
Katie Holmes showed some leg, and a bit of her slip, yesterday while out getting coffee with her mom Kathleen Holmes at the Two Little Red Hens bakery in NYC. The Holmes women wrapped up a big week, in which Katie finalized her split from ex Tom Cruise. Katie and her daughter Suri Cruise have moved into a new apartment in the city's Chelsea neighborhood, and have apparently already even found a new Catholic church in their neighborhood. While Kate and Suri visit favorite Big Apple spots like Chelsea Piers, the Children's Museum, and the Central Park Zoo, Tom's been working in California. Tom is still on the Northern California set of Oblivion, wrapping up production on the blockbuster alongside costar Olga Kurylenko.
Kate Beckinsale and Jessica Biel hit Comic-Con yesterday on behalf of their movie Total Recall, which was directed by Kate's husband, Len Wiseman. Colin Farrell plays the lead in the picture, which is a remake of the 1990 Arnold Schwarzenegger film. Kate, Colin, and Jessica all posed for photos before heading in to take the stage. We snagged a minute with the cheeky Colin, who referred to Kate as the on-set potty mouth.
We also caught up with Jessica. We got the scoop on Jessica's love of Summer whites — which is very appropriate considering her upcoming wedding to Justin Timberlake — as well as what it was like on the set with Kate and Colin. Jessica filled us in on how she and Justin compare notes after tough days on set, whether it was her with Total Recall or Justin with an action movie like In Time. Jessica said, "We're just constantly telling each other about ridiculous things that happen on set. Like, 'I completely fell and actually punched the ground.' . . . And he's like, 'Don't worry, it's OK. I'm not going to tell anybody.' It's more consoling each other."
Matt Damon swung through Comic-Con in San Diego yesterday to talk up his new movie Elysium. Joining Matt were his costars Jodie Foster and Sharlto Copley, director Neill Blomkamp, and producer Simon Kinberg. Neill is best known as the man behind the 2009 movie District 9, which both Matt and Jodie loved. At a panel, Matt said signing on to Elysium was a "very easy decision after I saw District 9." We caught up with Matt on the red carpet, where he posed with costars before taking the stage. We got a rough outline of the plot of Elysium from Matt himself — make sure to check out our video, in which Matt also talks about Jeremy Renner taking over the Bourne franchise.
Miley Cyrus and fiancé Liam Hemsworth checked out one of her regular classes at Winsor Pilates yesterday in LA. The couple are reunited on the West Coast, after he traveled the country with stops in New Orleans and NYC to shoot Empire State. Pilates isn't the only exercise the two are getting together — Miley and Liam went skateboarding Thursday, too. Liam's in California at the same time as his older brother Chris. Chris and his wife Elsa Pataky are in the US with their newborn daughter, India. It's an exciting time in the Hemsworth family: in addition to Liam's and Chris's booming careers, they have a new baby and a wedding to plan.
Stars were busy with both work and play this week, making trips to the zoo, attending film festivals, and donning bikinis. Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart joined their fellow Breaking Dawn Part 2 cast members at Comic-Con in San Diego, while Jessica Alba slipped on a bikini during her Italian vacation. Katie Holmes and Suri Cruise spent an afternoon at the Central Park Zoo in NYC, and Angelina Jolie visited Bosnia with Shiloh, Pax, and Zahara.
