Gwyneth Paltrow brought her whole family out to the 9th Annual Authors' Night in East Hampton, New York, yesterday. She walked around the event while wearing a name tag and holding hands with her children, Apple and Moses, before sitting down at a table to sign copies of her cookbook, It's All Good. Gwyneth's husband Chris Martin was also at the bookish bash, as was Alec Baldwin and his pregnant wife Hilaria Baldwin. The Paltrow-Martin crew is currently holidaying in the Hamptons, but it wasn't their first northern Summer stop this year. Gwyneth Paltrow holidayed in Spain with her family in July, where they took a dip in a pool and explored the Spanish town of Mallorca.
Chris Evans plans to head behind the camera — alright, in front of it, too — for an upcoming romance! Meanwhile, Vanessa Hudgens is in talks to join a movie that merges vampires, zombies and aliens, while Nicolas Cage is collaborating with the director of The Canyons and Ethan Hawke is brushing up on his Shakespeare. The Great Gatsby scene stealer Elizabeth Debicki has also locked down her next role. It was a pretty big week for casting news, and I haven't even gotten to Alec Baldwin's new role alongside Emma Stone. Click through to see all the most exciting news of the week!
Celebrities headed to NYC's Museum of Modern Art yesterday to attend the premiere of Woody Allen's latest film, Blue Jasmine. Alec Baldwin, who stars in the movie, brought his pregnant wife Hilaria Thomas to the event, and his co-star Cate Blanchett made an elegant appearance on the red carpet. Last week's Emmy nominations brought good news for many of the evening's red carpet stars. Alec is nominated for outstanding lead actor in a comedy series for his final season on 30 Rock and he's up against Louis CK, who was also at the Blue Jasmine premiere. Another nominee, Amy Poehler, attended the event, along with stars like Adrien Grenier, Zosia Mamet, Solange Knowles and model Jessica Hart.
Woody also got some support from celebrity friends over the weekend when Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield attended his concert in France. Take a look at all the celebrities who stepped out for the film's premiere!
Alec Baldwin deleted his Twitter account following a series of angry tweets directed to a Daily Mail reporter yesterday. He came to pregnant wife Hilaria Thomas's defense due to a story claiming she was tweeting upbeat posts during James Gandolfini's funeral services. Alec later released a statement and said the story was manufactured, while Hilaria shared her hurt over the situation on her own active account.
Twitter tension aside, other stars are just jumping on the social media platform. Liam Hemsworth joined Twitter this month despite not being so fond of the site back in October 2009, when he convinced his now-fiancée, Miley Cyrus, to deactivate her account. Since Twitter can be tricky, and yet addicting, to many celebrities, we've rounded up a list of stars who have a history of changing their minds about the microblogging site. From Demi Lovato's hot-and-cold feelings about the site to Ashton Kutcher's online silence following a controversial tweet, see celebrities who go back and forth with 140 characters.
What a week it's been on Twitter! With events like the leadership spill in Australia, the quashing of a marriage-equality ban in the US and more keeping our favourite celebs talking, we've been inundated with excellent tweets along the way. Family Guy funnyman Seth MacFarlane gave a little insight into what life as a director is like (it sounds pretty sweet up in that chair!), while Lisa Wilkinson paid tribute to an Aussie legend who passed during the week. Kristen Bell proposed to her main man, Dax Shepard (for real!) and as for Alec Baldwin? Let's just say. . . stay out of his way for now. Click through to get all the goss, straight from the sources!
Each year, top US universities award honorary degrees to people with impressive achievements in their fields — including a handful of A-list Hollywood stars.

Take a look at the esteemed stars with honorary degrees!
Alec has a daughter, Ireland Baldwin, from his marriage to Kim Basinger, while this will be Hilaria's first child. Alec and Hilaria got married in NYC in July last year in a ceremony that was attended by famous friends including Alec's 30 Rock co-star, Tina Fey. Congrats to the expecting duo!
