Stars gathered to show their support at the second annual Sean Penn and Friends Help Haiti Home Gala at the Montage Hotel in Beverly Hills Saturday night. Reese Witherspoon sat in the audience with husband Jim Toth and bid during the auction, while Julia Roberts mingled with pals like Tim Robbins in the crowd. Daniel Craig, who was absent when he won best actor in an action movie for Skyfall at last week's Critics' Choice Awards, met up with Jon Bon Jovi, and Melissa McCarthy and husband Ben Falcone attended the event, which featured a performance by Citizen Cope. Eva Longoria was fresh off of filming a Lays commercial when she stepped out for the good cause, alongside Kristin Davis, Emma Roberts, Eric Dane, Leonardo DiCaprio Bradley Cooper and others.

Julia Roberts met up with some of her famous friends for lunch at Hal's Bar and Grill in Venice, CA, on Friday. She was joined by her August: Osage County co-stars Ewan McGregor (and his wife, Eve Mavrakis), Dermot Mulroney, and Julianne Nicholson for a casual meal. Filming has reportedly wrapped on the production, but it appears the friends are intent on keeping in touch. Julia's next project pairs her with another fellow A-lister, Brad Pitt. Brad's production company, Plan B, is producing The Normal Heart, which is set to star Julia alongside Matt Bomer and Alec Baldwin.
As for Ewan, he's got an exciting few months ahead. His name has been thrown around recently as Oscar buzz is building around his gripping role in The Impossible. It appears Ewan's already got Angelina Jolie on his side, so it's possible he could get Julia's support as well. Dermot may not be in the hunt for an Academy Award, but he does have his sights set on Park City, Utah. Dermot's forthcoming project The Rambler is among the first-round films announced for 2013's official Sundance Film Festival lineup.

Mirror Mirror, the candy-coloured vision of director Tarsem Singh, is the latest take on a classic fairy tale, with Lily Collins filling the shoes of Snow White and Julia Roberts as her nemesis, the wicked queen. But even with a solid cast and Singh's risk-taking aesthetic, the uneven script and undeveloped characters reduce it to a retread of an old story with a very pretty look. You know how it goes: the queen married Snow White's father, and after he dies, she sets about to get rid of anyone prettier than herself. That makes Snow White target No. 1, and when the girl is run out of the kingdom, she's forced to take shelter with a group of outlaw dwarves in the forest, becoming their caretaker of sorts. In this version, Snow White becomes their vigilante leader, while the perspective is largely from the wicked queen, who's trying to solve her financial problems by marrying rich Prince Alcott (the very dreamy Armie Hammer). While these twists are cute tweaks of the well-known tale, they don't make the story different enough, and the film drags on toward its obvious conclusion.
Singh is known for his bold, arresting aesthetic, like in films The Cell and Immortals, and he definitely has fun reimagining the setting of Snow White and her fairyland. It's clear that he's reining in the weirdness to give the film wider appeal, but some unusual elements sneak in there, like some creepy villainous puppets and a scene with the queen's downright gross beautifying routine. As polarising as those scenes may be, the movie could have used some more weirdness, if only to give it a clearer angle. Sadly, the creativity is used up on the visuals, and the rest of the film suffers.

2012 is the year of Snow White. There are currently two different films on their way into the cinema based on the classic fairy tale: Universal's Snow White and the Huntsman, due June 21, 2012, and Relativity's Mirror Mirror, which opens today. As they've come together, it's been tough keeping up with the separate films and trying to not get them confused, so I'm helping you out. Check out who's who in each movie now before you see them and have the chance to determine which movie is the fairest of them all.
Video: Julia Roberts and Lily Collins Joke They "Don't Get Along" and Talk Lily's "Rival" Kristen Stewart
Lily Collins and Julia Roberts face off as Snow White and the Evil Queen in the big screen fairytale adaptation, Mirror Mirror. We sat down with the co-stars at a recent press day to chat about the movie, and they shared what it was like having to act evil during filming, despite the fact that they really liked each other. Lily also opened up about her friend Kristen Stewart's own upcoming Snow White feature, Snow White and the Huntsman. See what she had to say about them being "rivals" when you watch our interview, and make sure to check out Mirror Mirror in cinemas from March 29.
Julia Roberts may play the evil stepmother in the latest Snow White adaptation Mirror Mirror, but her makeup was less than loathsome at the premiere. Makeup artist Genevieve Herr created a subtle daytime eye look that works just as well at the office as it did on the red carpet. To start, Herr applied Lancôme Liner Design in Indigo Darling (a navy blue hue) to the top lash line. By applying liner before shadow, she achieved a less stark line that goes well with a more relaxed daytime look. Next, Herr used a light-reflecting shadow in the inner corners to create the illusion of bright and open eyes. This shimmery shadow was blended with a darker plum shade that covered Julia's outer lid. (Both shades are from the Color Design Quad in Twirling in Tulle.) By mixing a luminescent shadow with a matte darker hue, Herr created a polished eye look that's ideal for daytime — and doesn't take much to update for night.
