Shia LaBeouf and his Lawless leading lady, Jessica Chastain, teamed up for a Cinema Society screening of their film at NYC's Paley Center for Media. The screening was also sponsored by YSL Beaute, and Jessica was fittingly decked out in a YSL dress with Tom Binns jewelry. She kept up her brand loyalty, wearing a black YSL outfit. In addition to Shia and Jessica, other stars checked out the premiere. Seth Meyers and Chloe Sevigny swung by, as did Patti Smith, Patricia Clarkson, and Melissa Leo. Later on, Shia and Jessica toasted their action movie, which is out Aug. 29, with an afterparty at Gallow Green at the McKittrick Hotel.
We caught a moment with both stars on the red carpet, and they spoke about how they stuck close to the film's Prohibition-era theme by drinking moonshine after the cameras stopped rolling. Shia viewed drinking as a good bonding experience with the cast, but Jessica didn't really take to it. She told us, "We would drink moonshine — I didn't drink so much moonshine. I like liquor that's sweet, and the moonshine we had down there wasn't so sweet!" Catch more from our interviews with both Shia and Jessica later today on PopSugar Rush.
Just when we thought she couldn't get any cooler, one of our favorite funny ladies Amy Poehler stopped by Saturday Night Live last night and gave a great rant with Seth Meyers on the birth control debate via Really!?! With Seth and Amy. The pair rightly called out congressman Darrell Issa for his all-male panel on Obama's birth control mandate, Foster Freeze for his antiquated birth control idea (keep your legs closed), and Mike Huckabee's anti-birth-control line: "We're all Catholic now." To that last argument, Amy pointed out that the majority of Catholic women use contraception, saying, "You know who's not all Catholic now? All Catholics now." Thanks, Seth and Amy, for waking people up to the ridiculousness going on right now in regards to women's reproductive rights; let's hope it helps! Check out the clip now, and weigh in below.
Ashley Olsen showed support for her former Full House costar, Bob Saget, at the annual Cool Comedy — Hot Cuisine for Scleroderma Research Foundation event in NYC last night. Bob, who lost his sister to the disease, hosted the charity evening, which featured performances from comedians Seth Meyers, Colin Quinn, and Jeff Ross. Mary-Kate wasn't on hand for the fundraiser this year, but she and Ashley did their part to help out by donating tickets to a The Row fashion show for the live auction. Also up for grabs was the chance to see the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, which is being taped tomorrow. We'll be at the annual runway extravaganza, though the full sexy soiree won't air until the end of the month.
Jessica Biel wore a fake baby bump on the set of her new movie What to Expect When You're Expecting last night in NYC. She's playing a mom to be with a preference for comfortable clothes as her sweats and sneakers combo suggested. The location in the Big Apple allowed Jessica to reunite with Justin Timberlake recently. The couple were seen on their latest outing together walking around the city yesterday afternoon. Their stroll came after vacations in Martha's Vineyard, the Hamptons, and Toronto, where she was last hard at work on the Total Recall remake. Justin, meanwhile, will be doing press in the run-up to In Time hitting theaters. Last week, he issued a release denying that he was a victim of the hacking scandal that resulted in the publication of Scarlett Johansson's nude photos.
Gisele Bundchen threw on a sheer-fronted dress to attend the annual Robin Hood Gala in NYC last night with husband Tom Brady. They were among the many famous couples who attended the philanthropic event, with Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos chatting alongside Naomi Watts and Liev Schreiber. Seth Meyers took the stage to entertain the crowd, just as he did at the recent White House Correspondents Dinner, though NBC's Brian Williams was the official emcee. Seth's lady friend, Alexi Ashe, wasn't spotted, though there were plenty of other pretty actresses on hand — Olivia Wilde, Kerry Washington, and Sarah Jessica Parker all made the rounds, too. Gisele, who is a goodwill ambassador for the organization, was there to support its auction, which raised $47.4 million to both fight poverty around the city and help veterans of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. She and Tom let off some steam following the bidding by listening to a Lady Gaga performance, and he also chatted up tennis star John McEnroe. It was Gisele's latest night of charity after she accepted an award at Friday's Global Environmental Citizen Awards.
Diane Kruger joined her close pal, designer Jason Wu, for last night's Green Auction: A Bid to Save the Earth at Christie's in NYC. She went extra casual for a morning Big Apple stroll before changing into one of Jason's designs for the party, which also brought out Zoe Kravitz, Olivia Palermo, Seth Meyers, and Anna Wintour. Nicki Minaj was on hand to entertain everyone following a runway show, and she took the eco theme literally by donning a half-green wig. It was the second-ever bash held to benefit four environmental charities, and was cochaired by Anna, Salma Hayek, and Francois-Henri Pinault. Salma and her husband popped up for last year's event along with Earth Hour spokeswoman Miranda Kerr.
Tina Fey stuck with her husband Jeff Richmond last night on her way in to accept the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor, the nation's most prestigious recognition of comedic talent, in Washington DC. She's the third female, including Whoopi Goldberg and Lily Tomlin, to receive the prize, and at 40, Tina is also the youngest. Tina humbly said she had set her sights on the more attainable goal of winning "the Judy Blume Prize for awkward puberty or the Harper Lee Prize for small bodies of work." Many friends from Tina's life turned out to support her achievement, including her former SNL pals like Amy Poehler, Jimmy Fallon, Seth Meyers, and Fred Armisen. The 30 Rock crew was well represented with Alec Baldwin and Jon Hamm, who posed with girlfriend Jennifer Westfeldt. Tina's Date Night costar Steve Carell also attended, as did Betty White. The proceedings almost turned into a good-natured roast, with Tina's friends taking the stage to comment on her career. They said:
