The LA premiere of Nobody Walks brought out a star-studded crowd last night, including the film's writer Lena Dunham and star Olivia Thirlby. Malin Akerman, wearing Hugo Boss, also joined Nicky Hilton and Isabel Lucas. Malin, who's expecting her first child with husband of five years Roberto Zincone, posed for photographers before heading inside the screening. Malin announced that she's expecting late last week, and didn't waste much time before celebrating at Saturday's Environmental Media Awards alongside Ian Somerhalder, Jessica Alba, and Emily VanCamp.
Divorced thirtysomething Amy (Melanie Lynskey) lives in her mother's (Blythe Danner) big fancy house in Hello I Must Be Going, where she's spent three months of soul-searching before hitting rock bottom in the trailer. It's not all bad though because she strikes up a romance with the 19-year-old boy next door, played by Girls' Christopher Abbott (who gets to be much sexier here than as Marnie's ex). It would probably be an ego boost if his friends didn't assume she was someone's mom.
I've loved Melanie Lynskey in every quirky supporting role I've seen her in, and I'm curious to see how she does as a leading lady. She's always been able to portray just the right amount of hopefulness and subtle heartbreak (see Away We Go), and it looks like this character might require a balance of the same combination. The movie premiered at Sundance, but you can see it yourself when it opens in limited release Sept. 7. Check out the trailer when you read more.
George Clooney and Elisabetta Canalis glowed together at last night's LA premiere of Up in the Air, fresh off their bikini filled Thanksgiving in Mexico. Their sunbathing buddy Cindy Crawford joined them on the red carpet decked out in a sexy purple number. George's costar and New Moon actress Anna Kendrick wore a one-shoulder white gown. Anna should apparently start getting used to picking out formal wear since as embarrassed as she may be, she's getting Oscar hype already for her role in the Clooney film. The movie hits theaters this month, and Buzz chatted with director Jason Reitman about who he'd like to work with, George's pranks and tackling such a timely subject matter.
The U2 concert in Pasadena last night brought out many of Hollywood's biggest names. After a weekend with family, David Beckham attended with friends, while Rande Gerber and Cindy Crawford turned up side-by-side. Paris Hilton came with her boyfriend Doug and sister Nicky, and Ashley Greene left the Gossip Girl gang to watch the show alongside fellow Twilighters Kellan Lutz and Cam Gigandet. Ryan Phillippe had a boys' evening out with BFF Breckin Meyer, as Olivia Wilde chatted with Ginnifer Goodwin. Orlando Bloom tried to go a little incognito as he played with a mask in the VIP lounge before the whole famous gang went to see Bono and the guys do their thing on stage.
