Johnny Depp was back enjoying an afternoon by his pool in Hawaii yesterday. The actor didn't go shirtless like he did on a great day last week, but his partner, Vanessa Paradis, cooled off in her bikini with a swim. Johnny and Vanessa are in the tropics enjoying a Summer together while he works on Pirates of the Caribbean 4. He's currently focusing on the latest installment of his Disney franchise, but later this year he'll be busy promoting The Tourist — it was just announced that his and Angelina Jolie's movie will arrive in theaters on Dec. 10.
Monica Cruz slipped into a little white bikini on Saturday for an afternoon at the beach in Ibiza. It's been a big Summer for the Cruz family, after Monica's look-alike sister, Penelope, tied the knot with her long-term boyfriend, Javier Bardem, at a small ceremony in the Bahamas. While Penelope was off in the US spending her weekend in LA and showing off her new ring, Monica stayed near home in Spain. The girls are known to be very close, even working together when possible like when they collaborated on a line for Mango in 2008.
Gwyneth Paltrow hit the beach in the Hamptons on Sunday to enjoy a clambake with her husband, Chris Martin, and their kids, Apple and Moses. Her and Chris's good friend Jay-Z even dropped by to say hello, and he gave Gwyneth a big hug before heading over to join the party. The Paltrow-Martins have been spending the last few weeks out at their vacation home on Long Island, and Gwyneth has even broken out her bikini to play on the sand with Apple and Moses. She's been busy making the East Hampton social rounds, but Gwyneth's traveled back into the Big Apple for important lunches and afternoons with good friends.
Is it wrong to go on a trip when your boyfriend doesn't want you to? I have a trip planned with some friends and he thinks it is stupid because it is a celebrity cruise. I told him about the trip before I purchased it and I knew he wasn't happy. I was debating on even telling him at first because it is a little ways away still. But I was honest and told him my intentions. He wasn't happy, but said that I could do what I wanted because we weren't married. Well it's a different story today. He's mad today because I knew how he felt and still did it, so now I'm selfish and am wasting money, which is my money. I'm not trying to hurt him at all by going on this trip, but to me it is just a fun time with my friends, who I don't get to spend that much time with anymore. He says he trusts me but I should listen to him and when I make choices like this, it makes him question our future together. He said that he won't break up with me over it, but he isn't happy. He also said that I should be going on trips with him, not my friends. I just want to do something for myself! I don't think it is a crime, but maybe it is? My friends that are going are all married and their husbands aren't throwing a fit over it. I don't know what to do?
Johnny Depp went shirtless over the weekend to swim at his rented Hawaiian home with his bikini-clad partner, Vanessa Paradis — Johnny is unfortunately out of our Hottest Shirtless Guy contest, but make sure to fill out your ballot!

The Depp-Paradis clan is out on the island while Johnny shoots Pirates of the Caribbean 4 with his just-married costar, Penelope Cruz — he and Penelope have been spotted on the set practicing their dance moves while dressed in their elaborate costumes.

While I'll happily strap a backpack on and head to the mountains for a weekend, I must admit that the idea of glamping also appeals to my inner lazybones. After all, not everyone is happy to spend hours on the trail and then end the day setting up a tiny tent in the middle of nowhere. It's hard to argue with a bit more of a glamorous camping experience. FitSugar introduced you to a few glamping locations, but I'm back with several more to satisfy your chic outdoor desires. Follow me for a whirlwind world tour of glamping options!
Hilary Swank wore her bikini yesterday for a walk around a Hawaiian resort with her boyfriend, John Campisi. She and John treated themselves to the vacation after she wrapped up work on The Resident with Lee Pace and Jeffrey Dean Morgan. Hilary will need the rest, as she's set to soon start work on Dreams of a Dying Heart alongside Josh Brolin. Early next year will be busy for the actress as well, since she'll head out on the promotional road to promote her intense-looking film called Conviction.

Audrina Patridge and her boyfriend Corey Bohan were back in the waters of Bora Bora yesterday continuing their tropical vacation.
