Eva Mendes may be celebrating turning 38 today but two things are yet to change since she's been in the spotlight: her show-stopping beauty and her signature pose. Her roles remain as varied as her hair cut and colour, but when it comes to posing for the cameras, it seems Eva's got her signature "kiss" pose down pat. Take a look back at Eva working it for the camera over the years and join us in wishing her a great day and a kiss-filled year ahead!

Gwyneth Paltrow swung by chef Mario Batali's new show, The Chew, to talk about her love of food. She admitted that she exercises for an hour-and-a-half five days a week, and all the workouts mean she can eat pretty much whatever she likes. Gwyneth, who just stunned on the Oscars red carpet last week, also joked about the awards show but kept silent when conversation turned to Angelina Jolie's funny leg pose.
Liam Hemsworth’s baby blues are front and centre on the latest cover of GQ Style Australia, which is on sale now. He also puts his modelling skills to work in an accompanying retro-styled shoot photographed by Dusan Reljin. With The Hunger Games being released this month, Liam and his co-stars are the names on everyone’s lips, but he didn’t talk about the film too much in his interview with David Hochman. Instead he touched on his surfing ambitions back in the day and missing his parents and family back home. Liam said:
- On his childhood role model: “I surfed competitively and made it to the state rounds where I was competing with the top surfers in Victoria. We travelled everywhere. All my friends were surfers. All we wanted to be was Kelly Slater.”
- On his parents: “My parents are good people who do good things for others. It can be a challenging example to live up to.”
- On Chris landing the role of Thor: “Look, Chris is six-and-a-half years older than me so there’s this thing where if I’d got Thor, that would have been weird. The way I look at this is, better Chris than someone else. Believe me, Chris and I spent most of our lives beating each other up. At this point, we’re just happy not to be fist-fighting over who gets to sit in the front seat.”
- On missing home: “My family and friends back in Australia have missed this part of my life; and it’s been a big part. That’s tough. I’m growing up without them. My parents don’t Skype. It’s tough with the time difference. I miss Australia a lot.”

Who’s in the running to win the mirror ball trophy on Dancing With the Stars this year? Channel Seven has confirmed the first four celebrities from this year’s line-up: Kerri-Anne Kennerley, Vogue Williams, Johnny Ruffo and Brendan Fevola. Kerri-Anne’s name has been in the mix ever since she made the move from Channel Nine to Channel Seven, while Johnny Ruffo already has a relationship with Seven after placing third in The X Factor last year — the network will surely appreciate the young female audience he brings to the show. Brendan’s ex-wife Alex was a competitor in the 2010 series and came third. Irish DJ Vogue’s fiancé is Australia’s Got Talent judge Brian McFadden, so we can expect to see him cheering her on in the crowd. And while the following names haven’t been officially confirmed, sources say Erin McNaught, Shannon Noll, Danielle Spencer, Jessica Watson, Brian Mannix and Zoe Cramond will also hit the dance floor to show off their cha-cha-cha skills.
Kylie Minogue was the star attraction at the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras, which was held on Saturday night. Pouring rain didn’t stop around 300,000 people from lining Oxford Street to watch the colourful floats, which included a Kylie-themed float to celebrate the pop princess’ return to the event for the first time in 14 years. She wore a colourful, beaded Pucci dress with a sexy back for the parade, and changed into a design from Jean Paul Gaultier for her 2 a.m. performance at the after party inside the Hordern Pavilion. Kylie then expressed her gratitude on Twitter, writing, “ThkU THANK YOU @SydneyMardiGras & Mardigrasland.....YOU were amazing....I am #happytiredwiredrelievedamazedgrateful.” Other celebrities who partied on the weekend for Mardi Gras include Magda Szubanski and Home and Away’s Dan Ewing.
Jessica Alba struck a pose at the Lanvin ready-to-wear Fall 2012 show during Paris Fashion Week on Friday. She was sitting next to her sister-in-law Nikki, who she brought along to partake in the fashionable festivities. Jessica arrived in France on Thursday, but her visit was a short one since she was already saying au revoir to the City of Love on the weekend. Jessica chronicled her whole trip on Twitter and Instagram, sharing everything she saw and all the delicious things she ate while abroad. Jessica made a similarly quick visit to NYC for the Michael Kors runway show last month, but she doesn't seem to want to stay away from her daughters, Haven and Honor, and husband Cash Warren long.
Guy Sebastian and his wife, Jules, are the proud new parents of a baby boy! Hudson James Sebastian was born on Saturday, March 3, weighing in at around 2.7kg.

Nothing better man. All the best to you guys”) and Reece Mastin (“Uncle Reece is always happy to baby sit”).

Congrats to Guy and Jules!
You better Belize it! Prince Harry kicked off his first solo tour with a festive night in Belmopan, Belize on Friday. He danced and tested out many flavours of local rum and beer at a street party in the country's capitol city. Harry's three-week tour will also include stops in more of the Queen's Commonwealth realms in the Bahamas and Jamaica before he heads to Brazil on a trade mission. It's all part of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee year, and back home in London Harry's sister-in-law Kate Middleton is taking on her own duties while Prince William is off in the Falklands. Duchess Catherine, the Queen and Camilla made an appearance at a department store together earlier in the week.
