Kellan Lutz suited up for the red carpet at last night's LA premiere of Love, Wedding, Marriage. His onscreen wife, Mandy Moore, wasn't on hand for the festivities, but Kellan was joined by costars including Jane Seymour, Jessica Szohr, and Dermot Mulroney. The romantic comedy features some shirtless shots of Kellan, and Mandy revealed in a recent interview that his abs made him a popular presence on set! The actor is moving on to the next phase of his career after recently wrapping work on Breaking Dawn. It's the last film in the Twilight saga, and many of the franchise's young stars are taking on exciting new projects as well. Kristen Stewart will put a new spin on Snow White, while Robert Pattinson's Bel Ami and Ashley Greene's Butter will both hit theaters soon.
First comes love, then comes wedding, then comes marriage in Dermot Mulroney's upcoming directorial debut. Love, Wedding, Marriage has had some bumps along the road to production, but it finally has a cast, with Kellan Lutz and Mandy Moore starring as the leading married couple. Moore will play a marriage counselor whose world is rocked when her parents' seemingly perfect marriage heads for divorce. She then decides to attempt her very own parent trap, sabotaging her own relationship with Lutz in the process. Jane Seymour and James Brolin will play Moore's parents.
I'll always root for Moore, but her recent rom-com track record isn't exactly stellar: it includes License to Wed and Because I Said So. As for Lutz, it's kind of hard for me to wrap my head around him as something other than an arrogant high school student or vampire, but at least he's branching out.
The Governors Ball was the first stop for many of the winners and presenters after last night's Oscars ceremony. Best actress Sandra Bullock went from chatting about her award in the press room to the afterparty, where she shared a special moment with her supportive husband, Jesse James. Maggie Gyllenhaal didn't claim a statue for Crazy Heart, but she continued the family evening by joining her mother Naomi Foner for a bite. Barbara Streisand cuddled up to Gerard Butler, while Diane Kruger brought her Chanel gown from the red carpet to the ball.
Oprah Winfrey joined Gabourey Sidibe after her touching introduction during the best supporting actress presentation. Zoe Saldana stayed in her voluminous dress, which led the way for the evening's slitty trend. Neil Patrick Harris, meanwhile, relaxed with David Burtka after his amazing opening number. Sigourney Weaver was happy to let her hair down with Anna Kendrick despite Avatar's not winning best picture, but Kathryn Bigelow and screenwriter Mark Boal were thrilled their film The Hurt Locker took home the accolade.

Michael Douglas was the man of the evening last night as he received an AFI Lifetime Achievement Award in LA. He hit the red carpet on the arm of his wife Catherine Zeta-Jones, while his Ghosts of Girlfriends Past costar Matthew McConaughey brought along Camila Alves. Kiefer Sutherland and Tobey Maguire took the stage to pay tribute to their pal Michael, and Catherine even brought out her Chicago skills for a song-and-dance number in her husband's honor. Michael's been a Hollywood heavyweight for decades, but we'll see more of him on the big screen in the Wall Street sequel and, according to Catherine, a project they're looking to star in together.
The most musical movie hitting the theaters this Friday, Mamma Mia, premiered in NYC last night. The stars were all out and full of smiles including Meryl Streep and Amanda Seyfried who play the mother daughter pair at the center of the film. It's hard to say who looked more dapper, Pierce Brosnan or Colin Firth, handsome in suits before watching themselves sing and dance on the big screen. From what I hear, this movie is loads of fun! Check back tomorrow to see Buzz's review and until then, in case you missed it PopUK got to meet and interview all the stars!

Mother of six Jane Seymour gave expecting mother Angelina Jolie some advice on her weight gain. Having delivered twins herself over a decade ago, the 57–year–old former Dancing with the Stars contestant told OK!:
My advice to her [Angelina] is to put some weight on. . . I think she needs to keep putting on weight so she can feed those babies. I don't think she should think twice. She hasn't put on enough weight.
Jane may play Dr. Quinn, the Medicine Woman on television but doling out unsolicited pregnancy advice is risky at best. Aside from her making judgments on Angelina's physical status, she also assumes the mother–to–be will breastfeed the twins.
Did you get unsolicited pregnancy advice from friends and strangers?
Reservation Road premiered in LA last night, bringing out the movie's four big name stars. Joaquin, Mark, Jennifer and Mira all looked happy to be reunited on the red carpet, but I'm sure they were all missing their other all star costar, Elle Fanning. Jennifer Connelly was obviously too busy reveling in her new deal to be the face of Balenciaga to realize that the designer's runway look doesn't translate too well to the everyday premiere. Two words: Hot mess. With all the super dramatic movies opening this weekend it's hard to choose just one. If you're interested in Reservation Road (with its awesome cast....and cute Mark), check out my review over on Buzz. And then go ahead and get on the waiting list to nab Jennifer's shoes — they're gonna be all the rage.

ABC announced today which B-listers will be taking the stage for the fall edition of "Dancing with the Stars." For the second season in a row, a former "90210" star — this time Jennie Garth — will be foxtrotting on the stage, along with former (and, I guess, current) Scary Spice Mel B., a member of the Disney Channel girl group The Cheetah Girls, and Dallas Mavericks owner/media mogul Mark Cuban, among others.
In all, a dozen celebrities have been picked for the show, which will premiere Sept. 24. For the first time, the stars will be split up into gender groups in the first round, allowing ABC to spread the premiere over three nights. On the night of the premiere, the women will dance; the following night, the men take the stage. One team will then be eliminated that Wednesday.

Halle Berry was just one of many celebs to show up in Malibu this weekend to protest a natural gas facility. At the gathering, Halle said, "We have to use our voices and band together and stop this. I care about the air we breathe, I care about the marine life and the ecosystem of the ocean, and I care about stopping this (facility) because if this one is allowed to pass through, there will be other ones that will pop up all around the country."
Hear Hear! Halle's made sure to bring her beautiful boyfriend. Looks like she and her Versace model boyfriend Gabriel Aubrey are still going strong. She is one lucky lady! More pics of Halle as well as Daryl Hannah and Jane Seymour so read more
