The annual White House Correspondents' Dinner brought celebrities and the media stars who love them to the White House in Washington DC on Saturday night. Scarlett Johansson and Sean Penn were inseparable after the event, but she first walked the red carpet with her brother Hunter. Other couples were more comfortable posing before the cameras, with Jon Hamm cosying up to Jennifer Westfeldt, Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer sticking together, and Paul Rudd making the rounds with wife Julie when not chilling with Parks and Recreation funny girls Amy Poehler and Rashida Jones. Salma Hayek also had her husband Francois-Henri Pinault on hand, and Chace Crawford tagged along with sister Candice and her fiancé Tony Romo. The Vampire Diaries duo Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder made the rounds, as Mila Kunis made one half of an interesting pair with CNN's Wolf Blitzer. Seth Meyers was the evening's emcee, but it was President Obama who stole the show. The president hit back at critics like Donald Trump and even Matt Damon, who recently expressed disappointment with the administration. Obama said of Damon, "I've even let down my key core constituency: movie stars. Just the other day, Matt Damon — I love Matt Damon, love the guy — Matt Damon said he was disappointed in my performance. Well, Matt, I just saw The Adjustment Bureau, so . . . right back atcha, buddy."
From one piece of Charlie Sheen-related news to another: last weekend’s Saturday Night Live pulled a whole group of celebrities currently experiencing meltdowns of sorts into one skit. Featuring cast member Bill Hader as Charlie Sheen with his own talk show, Duh! Winning! With Charlie Sheen, the guests included other SNL regulars as Christina Aguilera (arrested for public intoxication), designer John Galliano (fired from Christian Dior after anti-Semitic remarks), Muammar Gaddafi (Libyan dictator) and Miley Cyrus as Lindsay Lohan. Each guest takes their turn speaking about their recent headline-making antics, with Miley saying, “My new movie Herbie came out 68 months ago and the Los Angeles Court House just gave me my own parking spot. Winning! Duh!”
But that’s not all Miley got up to during the episode. As the show’s host for the week, she participated in a number of skits but most memorably imitated friend Justin Bieber as a guest on The Miley Cyrus Show, where she acted opposite SNL’s Vanessa Bayer as Miley. Along with Hall Pass’ Jason Sudeikis as Billy Ray, the skit addresses Justin’s hip hop-esque characteristics and Miley’s salvia bong drama. You can watch this video after the jump.
Jim Carrey recently gave an interview to Jimmy Fallon while running on a treadmill, and I guess now we know why he was so concerned about slimming down for Saturday Night Live. The actor squeezed into a leotard and tutu to show off his best ballet moves for a skit mocking Black Swan this weekend. The movie is rife for parody from the in-your-face symbolism to the sexual overtones; I'm actually kind of surprised that it's taken SNL this long to poke fun at Aronofsky's film. Then again, few could pull off these moves the way Carrey can. Mila Kunis, eat your heart out. Watch Carrey twirl, flap, and stick his gum in Bill Hader's ear when you read more.
Anne Hathaway joined a variety of current and former Saturday Night Live stars for the American Museum of Natural History's 2010 Gala on Thursday evening. Kristen Wiig, Bill Hader, Abby Elliott and more had the evening off from prepping for the weekend's new episode, which Anne hosted. Anne made a rare public appearance with boyfriend Adam Shulman on her arm, while Tina Fey also enjoyed a date night with her husband, Jeff Richmond. Lately, Anne has been inseparable from her Love and Other Drugs co-star Jake Gyllenhaal, who hit the town instead with Natalie Portman for a charity party.
Jon Hamm was the guest of honour last night at a dinner hosted for him by the editors of Details in NYC. He's on the cover of the magazine's October issue solo, but he made the rounds at the party with his girlfriend, Jennifer Westfeldt, and caught up with SNL funny people like Bill Hader and Kristen Wiig. This morning, the Mad Men star was back on the promotional circuit to chat up his movie The Town ahead of its US release tomorrow. He swung by the Regis and Kelly studios to record an interview that airs tomorrow. Jon also had time yesterday to pay a visit to Jon Stewart at The Daily Show—check out their funny exchange after the jump.
The cast of MacGruber traded in their khaki wardrobe for formal wear at Thursday night's premiere in NYC. Ryan Phillippe looked right at home with all the Saturday Night Live cast members, including Andy Samberg and Bill Hader, who came out to support Will Forte and Kristen Wiig's sketch-to-movie project. It was the second red carpet of the week for the crew, who also celebrated the end of another successful SNL season. While over on the US East Coast, Ryan got to fulfill another fun obligation—on Tuesday he travelled south to Philadelphia to throw out the ceremonial first pitch at a game for his beloved baseball team the Phillies! He revealed he was pretty nervous before the throw, but perhaps not quite as much as when getting ready for his embarrassing, partially nude scene in the film.
It was a celebration of movies and acting in NYC last night at the Gotham Independent Film Awards. Ryan Reynolds hit the red carpet solo, looking dapper in his vest, while Brooke Shields stood close to Rosie Perez and Alec Baldwin posed with Richard Kind. Alec recently said he would be retiring from acting in a couple of years, but first he's out to promote his new romantic comedy, It's Complicated. He also has a big award show to host this season when he and Steve Martin take on the Oscars. Natalie Portman showed some skin, before being honoured during the show. The night's big winner was The Hurt Locker, while Stanley Tucci joined Portman as one of the night's honourees. Chris Rock came out to support his documentary Good Hair, though the prize for Best Doc went to Food, Inc. The night was full of laughs as Meryl Streep entertained and Sam Rockwell made funny faces with Patricia Clarkson, who took the podium.
