It was a wild reunion for the cast of The Hangover at the premiere of the franchise's third instalment in LA today. Bradley Cooper broke from the NYC set of American Hustle to attend the big event alongside Ed Helms and Zach Galifianakis. The trio showed love for their co-star Ken Jeong and the waiting fans, many of whom Bradley stopped to snap pictures with before heading into the screening. The ladies of the Hangover trilogy, including Heather Graham, Sasha Barrese, Gillian Vigman and Jamie Chung all hit the red carpet as well to celebrate the film's release, which is out in Australia on May 23.
Leonardo DiCaprio teamed up with Christie's to co-host the 11th Hour Auction in NYC last night. It was a successful event for Leo since the auction reportedly raised $35 million to benefit environmental and wildlife conservation efforts, almost doubling the goal of $18 million. He had the support of his long-time friend and Great Gatsbyco-star Tobey Maguire, who put in a winning bid on one of 33 pieces of contemporary art. Leo contributed something from his own art collection, a print called "Ocean V" by well-known photographer Andreas Gursky. Also out for the evening were Bradley Cooper, Mark Ruffalo and Salma Hayek.
It was Leonardo's second art-inspired outing in as many days, since he also made an appearance at the Brant Foundation Art Study Center's Andy Warhol showing in Greenwich, Connecticut, on Sunday. He'll be switching gears from art to film in the coming days, though, when he debuts The Great Gatsby in Cannes later this week.

The Place Beyond the Pines finds Ryan Gosling re-teaming with his Blue Valentine director Derek Cianfrance for a striking drama about fathers and sons. Gosling plays Handsome Luke (yes, he's even dubbed a heartthrob by the announcer at the carnival for which he does motorcycle stunts), a guy from the wrong side of the tracks who finds out he has a baby with an old fling, Romina (Eva Mendes). Luke's discovery and subsequent foray into robbing banks in a misguided attempt to provide for his family would be enough fodder for a whole movie, but The Place Beyond the Pines takes a sharp turn with the entrance of Avery (Bradley Cooper), a well-to-do cop who has a run-in with Luke while on call. Almost immediately, the film becomes Avery's story until the final third when it picks up 15 years later. It's an unorthodox format, but the risk pays off.
The way the film is laid out is one of its most unexpected and potentially polarising elements, as viewers expecting to see Cooper and Gosling share a lot of screen time will be disappointed. Though technically it could be described as a crime thriller, it's really a story about a robber, then a story about a cop, then a story about their kids. Once you get past how jarring the format can be, The Place Beyond the Pines is pretty remarkable. To find out what else I think of the movie, just read more.
After last night's White House Correspondents Dinner, Vanity Fair hosted their annual post-party with editor-in-chief Graydon Carter greeting their many celebrity guests. Nicole Kidman mingled with other actors including Jeremy Renner, Paul Rudd, and Nashville's leading ladies Connie Britton and Hayden Panettiere. Despite being dubbed the "nerd prom," the many actresses in DC last night were dressed to the nines in their best gowns — check out who wore what on the White House Correspondents Dinner red carpet.
The Vanity Fair bash, co-hosted by Bloomberg, also brought out celebrity couples — Jason Sudeikis stuck close to fiancée Olivia Wilde, Sofia Vergara mingled with her own spouse-to-be Nick Loeb, and Bradley Cooper brought his young model love, Suki Waterhouse. Jason made sure to say hi to his fellow SNL buddies from the past and present, including Fred Armisen and Amy Poehler. Sofia, meanwhile, hung out with pal Katy Perry.
It's been a fun-filled week in la-la land, with many celebrities heading to Coachella last weekend to catch some of the many musical acts performing this year.

Miranda Kerr jetted into Sydney to model the new Qantas uniforms, and hung out with John Travolta at the Gala Dinner a few days later, while Rebel Wilson did Australia proud as the host of the MTV Movie Awards. Of course, no one was immune to the tragic Boston bombings early in the week — and Bradley Cooper paid a visit to a very special survivor on April 19. There was plenty more action to see, so click through to check it all out!

The first teaser for The Hangover Part III is awesome, but it left me with so many questions. Why is the Wolfpack stuck in yet another dangerous situation? Where is Stu's face tattoo? Why does Alan have a pet giraffe? Some of these get answered in the brand-new trailer, and we get a lot more information about the movie, opening May 23. Even if you've seen the teaser, here's why you might want to check out the full trailer.
- Alan gets an intervention. Apparently Alan (Zach Galifianakis) has been off his meds for six months, so the gang comes together to help Alan agree to go to rehab, and even Phil (Bradley Cooper) is supportive.
- We find out more of the plot. The Wolfpack gets hijacked in the desert on the way to rehab by a gangster (John Goodman) looking for Mr. Chow. He forces the boys to track him down, leading them to both Tijuana and Vegas.
- We know why Doug isn't there. Of course, Goodman's character decides Doug (Justin Bartha) is the best guy to kidnap as insurance. Why does it always have to be Doug?
Get a peek at the new trailer after the jump.

Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes were joined by their co-star Bradley Cooper when they screened their new film, The Place Beyond the Pines, in NYC on Friday. Ryan wore a green velvet Gucci suit while his girlfriend, Eva, donned an orange Prada frock. Bradley made the trip to the Big Apple from Boston, where he is currently filming a still-untitled David O. Russell film alongside Amy Adams and his Silver Linings Playbook co-star Jennifer Lawrence. He was spotted earlier this month wearing pink curlers on set, but at the premiere he showed no signs of a wavier 'do, instead opting to slick his long hair back off his face.
Katie Holmes was also in attendance after returning to the Big Apple from a trip to Disney World with Suri. Fans of Ryan Gosling may want to catch this film, as the actor recently announced that he might be taking a break from acting.
