Rachel Bilson was back to her natural little self enjoying the Spring weather in Manhattan while filming New York, I Love You today. While she was kind of unrecognizable in the blond wig, Bella wants to know which hair color you like better on her? This time Rachel and her man Hayden were joined on set by Andy Garcia. You know, just another star added to the roster for this movie. How much fun is that wrap party...and premiere going to be?
This movie is intriguing for the incredible ensemble cast, although when that's the only good thing its own stars have to say about it, that's not a good sign. The Air I Breathe opens in New York and Los Angeles tonight and I wanted to get your thoughts on the preview, as I'm a little torn. There's a lot of talent piled into this flick (Forest Whitaker, Andy Garcia, Julie Delpy, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Emile Hirsch), but I'm a little confused by the trailer . . . which is maybe the point.
Apparently the plot follows several intersecting stories based on "four emotional cornerstones: happiness, pleasure, sorrow and love." IMDB continues, "A businessman (Whitaker) bets his life on a horse race; a gangster (Brendan Fraser) sees the future; a pop star (Gellar) falls prey to a crime boss (Garcia); a doctor (Kevin Bacon) must save the love of his life."
The New York Times reports that debut feature director Jieho Lee describes his movie this way:
"[It's] a film noir variation of The Wizard of Oz and an exploration of the theme of character as destiny."
Huh. Okay. To check out the trailer and tell me what you think, head on over to iVillage.

A good part of the star-studded cast of The Air I Breathe came out to the Arclight in LA last night for the premiere of their movie. Sarah Michelle
Gellar Prinze (still getting used to that) stole the show looking gorgeous in her stunning blue number. While she had no Freddie by her side, her costars Andy Garcia and Brendan Fraser were there to keep her cracking up on the red carpet. Love John Cho. Wait, no, I spoke too soon — Seth Green's gross mustache is what stole the show. Hey now.

Christmas came early in LA this weekend for the premiere of Fred Claus. Vince Vaughn, Elizabeth Banks and a blonde Robert Downey Jr. put on their Christmas colors to walk the snow covered red carpet. Ludacris brought his daughter to the family friendly film while Hollywood hotties Bradley Cooper and Scott Speedman came solo. We're excited to see Vince on the big screen just in time for the holidays, and he recently spoke about some of his Christmas memories. Here's more:
Do you remember when your belief in Santa was first shaken?
I remember the day I had neighbors that let me know – I was 6 years old – that there was no Santa Claus. They go, 'You know there's not a Santa Claus, right?' – and, of course, covering in front of them I was like, 'Well, yeah. Of course there's not a Santa Claus, guys.' Then I went to my sisters, and they said, 'Okay, now you know the painful truth, there is not a Santa Claus.' I was the youngest. They said, 'Don't tell mom and dad, because then we may not get gifts anymore. You got to keep pretending that you think there is Santa Claus, or you are not going to get any gifts.' I was like 16 going, 'Dad, when is Santa coming down the chimney?' My dad was like, 'Look it's getting weird, you are getting older, you know there's not a Santa, right?' "
Apparently Vince was a successful actor at a young age if his dad really thought he believed in Santa until he was 16. Lots and lots more pics including Andy Garcia, Seth Green, Jon Favreau, Kevin Sorbo, Justin Long and more so read more
I know I'd be lost without some fatherly advice from time to time. And I know where I get my love of big screen TVs and The Beatles. Here's a big Happy Father's Day to all you stylish fathers out there. Whether your poppie is a bit out there and funky, a casual dad who loves his hats, or a bona fide GQ stud, be sure to wish him a fabulous day!
MTV wasn't the only one having an awards show this weekend. On Friday night, the ALMA (American Latino Media Arts) Awards took place to honor achievements by Hispanic artists in Hollywood. Ugly Betty was the big winner with multiple wins including America Ferrera for best actress and Ana Ortiz for best supporting actress. A super pregnant Salma Hayek was there to cheer on her Ugly Betty stars while Jessica Alba, who is everywhere these days promoting the Fantastic Four, presented an award. Eva Longoria was the executive producer as well as the host with for the evening. She had quite a few wardrobe changes and even danced with her good friend Mario Lopez. The ceremony airs June 5th on ABC.

The beautiful ladies graced the red carpet at last night's amfAR's Cinema Against AIDS Benefit in Cannes, but inside the event was where the boys came out. In fact, the undeniably handsome and oh-so-generous George Clooney even auctioned off a kiss to benefit the cause. I'm not sure what the winning bid was...but how seriously lucky (and probably rich) is that lady?!? Speaking of very fortunate women, Ellen Barkin looked great, as usual, up on stage next to her Ocean's 13 co-stars. Hopefully all the Ocean's yumness (and their lady friends) will be out for the big premiere later today. Highlight of the festival much?

SMG was looking fabulous at the Tribeca Film Festival where she debuted 2 of her latest films, Suburban Girl and The Air I Breathe. I am loving all the SMG sightings we are getting these days. Hopefully with these two movies on the horizon we will see a lot more of her and that adorable husband of hers, Freddie Prinze Jr. Can you all see her squeezing his hand on the carpet? SO cute. As for the two movies, Suburban Girl is based on the wonderful book, The Girls Guide to Hunting and Fishing and the Air I Breathe has SMG playing a pop star that gets in trouble with the mob. I can't wait to check both of these out but more importantly, I am just glad to see her out and about again. Now if we could only get her and Freddie to make some little ones already!

Warner Bros has fully launched the official website for the latest Danny Ocean casino heist, Ocean's Thirteen, complete with plenty of stills from the film. This third in the series will feature the same handsome men and excellent actors as usual — we got us some Clooney, some Pitt, a little Cheadle, and a dash of Damon, among others.
As you may have seen from the preview, Ocean's 13th addition is Terry Benedict (Andy Garcia), who helps the gang take down another high roller, played by one of cinema's ultimate casino guys, Al Pacino. The movie hits theaters June 8, so you have plenty of time to peruse the new site and drool over all the photos. To see a gallery of stills, read more
