She had boyfriend Casper Smart by her side for the annual event that benefits the Muhammad Ali Parkinson Center as well as other charities.

She also linked up with the host of the evening, Ali, at the event that brought out Rita Wilson, Steve Martin, and more. J Lo traveled to the desert for the Fight Night with Casper after getting in quality time with her twins last weekend in LA.

Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux slipped out the back door of Katsuya in Brentwood last night following dinner with Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson. The foursome met up for the evening after Tom and Rita stepped out in NYC Tuesday night. They showed their support at Revlon's Concert for the Rainforest Fund at Carnegie Hall, where Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan, among others, performed for the charity. Jennifer and Justin, meanwhile, have been hanging out on the West Coast as they settle into their new home. The couple are going strong as rumors surrounding Jen's previous relationship with Brad Pitt continue to surface after Adam Brody joked that he set up Brad and Angelina Jolie.
Liam Hemsworth and Miley Cyrus, dressed in a peach Jenny Packham gown, were among the many stars that came out in Phoenix last night to support Muhammad Ali's Celebrity Fight Night XIII which raises awareness and funds for Parkinson's research. Miley was also joined at the dinner by her mom, Tish, and performed during the charity event. When she wasn't on stage, Miley was spotted sharing kisses with Liam and flashing a large diamond on her left hand. Rumors of Miley and Liam's engagement surfaced last week after she tweeted a photo of the ring.
Things for Liam and Miley have been going strong lately despite his demanding travel schedule. Liam just wrapped up an international press tour for The Hunger Games that took him to Paris, London, Germany, and Canada. It appears Liam and his costars Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson are a hit with fans as the film's set to break box office records this weekend. Early estimates forecast The Hunger Games earning $155 million in domestic ticket sales which makes it the highest March opening ever.
Stars came out to support UNICEF at its Playlist With the A-List event benefiting Schools For Africa in LA last night.

Things got goofy when Heidi, Tom Hanks, and Rita Wilson danced in the crowd and sang "YMCA" while wearing hats. Pregnant Molly kept the fun coming as she belted out tunes before Kristen, who wore a polka-dot look from Topshop, took the mic with the help of Molly Shannon and Don Cheadle.

Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close stars Tom Hanks and Sandra Bullock teamed up in NYC last night for their premiere at the Ziegfeld Theatre. They posed on the red carpet with their young leading man, Thomas Horn, before hitting the press line. Sandra's been talking up Thomas's exceptional acting all week, including yesterday on the Today show, telling Matt Lauer, "He might only be 13, 14, but he's far more educated, wiser, kind, empathetic than most adults in this room."
Sandra wore an Alexander McQueen pantsuit and sported a sleek-haired look. The role in the 9/11 film is Sandra's first since winning an Oscar for The Blind Side in 2010. Memories of the attacks are still raw for the actress, and Sandra shared her experiences from 9/11 recently. Sandra said, "I was here. I saw it. I saw the second plane. I saw people falling. It's never left. I think if you're here in New York and you saw and you felt and you heard, it doesn't leave. I mean you can sort of quiet it, but you hear a sound, you see an image, you look up at the clear blue sky and see a beautiful building. It doesn't go anywhere."
Julia Roberts and Tom Hanks stepped out in LA last night for the premiere of their upcoming film Larry Crowne. Tom and Julia had tons of their costars on hand for posing on the red carpet, including Taraji P. Henson, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, and Grace Gummer. Nia Vardalos, the My Big Fat Greek Wedding scribe who also penned this film, smiled for the cameras with Tom's wife Rita Wilson. The Larry Crowne reviews look promising, so the comedy may be a big draw over the long Fourth of July weekend. Tom and Julia's excitement about their movie was evident in our recent interview with the pair, as they laughed and joked about how shooting the picture hardly felt like work at all.
>> The Canadian used car advertisement that made headlines earlier this week — for placing the tagline "You know you're not the first. But do you really care?" over an image of Tom Ford — has been been pulled, the car salesman Dale Wurfel confirms, declining to further comment. It is not likely that Ford waived image rights for the ads, but it is not known whether the designer took legal action against the Ontario-based Wurfel. A Ford spokesman did not respond to requests for comment.
Ford, meanwhile, was the only fashion figure to make the Time 100 list of influencers this year. Rita Wilson, who walked in Ford's debut womenswear show, wrote in tribute that the designer is a "closet comedian, who can keenly copy an expression, person or walk. He Skypes from his bed, on the opposite end of the planet, to check in with me in mine. But this sexy guy is kind and deeply loyal. Friendships are his other art. No flip-flopping. No fly by night. Tom has manners that are rare these days. Handwritten notes are common for the man who wore a three-piece suit every day while directing his visionary first film, A Single Man."
