Kristen Bell Has Good Taste in Gossip Guys

Posted by Amy with 1 Comment

It’s a hotly debated question here in the E! Online offices and among fans glued to their TVs Monday nights: Who’s the hottest guy on Gossip GirlChace Crawford, Ed Westwick or Penn Badgley?

Well, who better to ask than the voice of Gossip Girl herself, Kristen Bell?

“I’m gonna have to go with Ed!” she confessed at Hollywood Life‘s 5th Annual Hollywood Style Awards. “Ed’s got that really sultry, bad-boy thing going on. I’m digging it!” Not to mention that sexy British accent he has off-camera when he’s not playing Chuck Bass.

We also asked the Forgetting Sarah Marshall star—who was on hand that night to present an award to her stylist, Nicole Chavez—what’s the one thing that never goes out of style?

“Self-confidence,” she answered. “I don’t think it really matters what you’re wearing as long as you feel confident.”

Getting an ego boost the same evening was Sophia Bush, who was honored as the New Hollywood Style Icon.

“I feel like a little girl who just had her first kiss!” the One Tree Hill star giddily exclaimed in her acceptance speech.

And while the cast of 90210 was given Hollywood Style People’s Choice Awards, not everyone knows their names just yet.

Bebe founder and Fashion Visionary winner Manny Mashouf thanked “MaryLynne” for his award…too bad he was introduced by AnnaLynne McCord.

One Tree Hill’ cast and crew offer industry advice

Posted by blueaeryn with 6 Comments

Once word got out that Chad Michael Murray was outside, the room full of fans, hopeful actors and film students flooded onto the deck adjacent to the small room at Screen Gems Studios.

The group of mostly women failed to look inconspicuous as they readied cameras and inched closer to the star of ‘One Tree Hill.’

An event organizer soon asked everyone to take their seats inside in preparation for a panel discussion with Murray, fellow actor Paul Johansson

and director Greg Prange.

Veteran actor and teacher Peter Jurasik assumed the role of James Lipton in the ‘Inside the Actor’s Studio’ style discussion.

The small room created an intimate setting for guests willing to donate $40 to the Cucalorus Film Foundation.

Cucalorus Board Chairman Bo Webb hoped the event would bring awareness to the upcoming independent film festival that runs Nov. 12-15. ‘One Tree Hill’ has been a big supporter of the group and the intimate panel seemed like a great way to bring it all together, Webb said.

Christina Laine, sitting in the front row with her mother before the discussion started, said she hoped to learn more about the film industry she is studying.

Others just came to catch a glimpse of the actors and learn more about the show they love.

Deepa Pillai came all the way from Mississippi to catch a glimpse of people behind her beloved show – and to see her sister who lives in Wilmington.

Guests submitted questions beforehand to Jurasik who spent the hour discussion prying the panel guests to talk seriously about the film industry while leaving plenty of room for laughter.

When asked about their inspiration, Johansson credited legendary actor Paul Newman, who died of cancer Friday.

He said he approached Newman once only to hear him say, ‘I’m busy.’

‘I did talk to him,’ he joked.

All three talked about the challenges and joys of the film industry and where they are headed next.

Murray will soon put on the director’s hat and bring to life a script he wrote for ‘One Tree Hill.’

Johansson said the seasoned cast is supporting him.

‘Chad’s going to do a great job,’ he said.

Director and ‘father figure’ to Murray, Prange offered the audience advice they could take to stage.

‘Be prepared,’ he said, adding knowing the script and the part leaves more time for fun and shaping the performance.

Sophia Bush Hits Up Smashbox Studios

Posted by Amy with 5 Comments

Sophia Bush is seen in Beverly Hills, California on her way to a photo shoot at Smashbox Studios in Culver City on Wednesday.

The 26-year-old One Tree Hill star will be starring in an upcoming film called The Narrows. The film is based on Tim McLoughlin’s novel “Heart of the Old Country”, which sees Mike Manadoro (Kevin Zegers), a 19 year old Brooklyn boy who is torn between two worlds of his new college life and his tight knit Italian neighborhood roots.

Sophia plays Kathy Popovich, a beautiful, cool, intellectual young woman who meets Mike at NYU, but he already has responsibility to his long term, girlfriend Gina (Monica Keena) from the neighborhood he’s promised to marry.

Sophia Bush attends Book Party of author Laura

Posted by Amy with 3 Comments

I had a gut feeling that the book party for bestselling author Laura Day at ONE Sunset, an elegant new Hollywood hotspot on the Strip, would be a big deal, and I was right to follow my intuition; after, all Day’s books – the intuition-themed tomes The Circle and Welcome to Your Crisis – are all about following your own inner voice, right?

Sure enough, the soiree, thrown by super-agent Kevin Huvane and film producer Ryan Kavanagh, was star-studded indeed. The first famous face to arrive was no less than Jennifer Aniston, who’s been Friends with Laura for about 15 years and has embraced the wisdom of her own intuition.

“I think that the simplest thing is just to listen to yourself,” Jennifer said. “We always have an inner voice, whether it’s in a work situation or a family situation, or any kind of dilemma or whatever, and we don’t always listen to our instincts…It’s just a rule to try and live your life by. Laura’s just a nice woman and it’s good to have mentor’s in our lives that we can gain advice from.”

And Jennifer wasn’t the only A-lister who turned out for some mentoring over cocktails: Demi Moore whisked in with hubby Ashton Kutcher and daughter Rumer Willis at her side and mixed and mingled with a power crowd that included HeroesMilo Ventimiglia, actress Jordana BrewsterBradley Cooper and screenwriter, novelist and uberwife Gigi Levangie Grazer (Stepmom, Starter Wife).

Author Day wasn’t surprised that her philosophies appealed to Hollywood’s top-shelf scene. “I think that all successful people are successful because they use their intuition,” she told me. “Successful people tend to really get what intuition is because they use it all the time. They make decisions that go against reason. However, they’re wildly successful. Time after time after time when you do that you know that that against reason, when it goes right, is your intuition.”

Sophia Bush was one of the Young Hollywood types who was looking to get more in touch with her inner counsel (while others like Ashton, who dutifully sat next to super-social Demi absently fiddling with his PDA, seemed to feel they might have followed their intuition to a more off-the-hook bash).

“I am one of those people who believes that your gut instinct comes from somewhere,” Sophia told me. “You get that feeling in the pit of your stomach it’s for a reason and we would probably all benefit if we trusted our guts a little more. I know that there are moments where I wish I had trusted my gut in the past where I didn’t, and there are moments where I’ve had a feeling about something and gone for it and it’s worked out wonderfully.”

Laura confirmed that Sophia’s instincts were, as you might expect, on the money. “The number one tip is listen to your voice,” she advised. “Write down the things that you think will happen. So get them out of the messy mind onto the piece of paper and then when they come true make a mark in the journal, because what you teach yourself is that you know.”

The Glamorous Life: Mark Wahlberg, Rihanna

Posted by Amy with 1 Comment

Rihanna gets feted by Gucci in Beverly Hills; Britney and Mel G. together again; Marky Mark Wahlberg disses the Beckhams; Kate Hudson debuts a hairy new business venture in Manhattan; Madonna heads to the Hamptons this summer; Mikhael Gorbachev gets a rousing celebrity welcome in Surrey; and Naomi Campbell takes a dive in Capri.

Los Angeles

Some girls have all the luck!

Rihanna didn’t need an umbrella or an S.O.S. over the weekend as she reigned supreme at an al fresco dinner in Beverly Hills hosted by Gucci. The soiree, held at the Thompson Beverly Hills Hotel, not only honored the pop princess but also celebrated the fall Hysteria bag collection from the luxe Italian fashion house. On hand for the chic evening was Ugly Betty’s Becki Newton, The Office’s Rashida Jones, Sophia Bush and Elvis’ granddaughter, Riley Keough, among others. Wonder what was in those gift bags? Hmmm….
