Jake Gyllenhaal flirting with Olivia Wilde at Chateau Marmont

on 24th June 2011

"Jake Gyllenhaal was cracking up and laughing with pals during a lively night at West Hollywood's Chateau Marmont – but the actor gave special attention to one woman: Olivia Wilde. The two were very flirty, an onlooker says, acting "touchy-feely." Says the onlooker: "At one point, he had his hand on hers." Still, the two weren't overly affectionate with each other. "Olivia was very cool," the onlooker says, "and wasn't fawning over Jake but seemed to like the attention he was giving her." Alas, at the end of the evening the two went their separate ways".

Happy 36th birthday Tobey Maguire!

Tobey Maguire and Jake Gyllenhaal as Capt. Sam Cahill and Tommy Cahill in "Brothers" (2009) directed by Jim Sheridan

Sam (Tobey Maguire) is not dead; he and a fellow soldier have been captured by Taliban fighters. In Afghanistans harsh, remote Pamir Mountains, Sam is subjected to traumas that threaten to rob him of his very humanity. At the same time that Sams sense of self is being destroyed overseas, Tommy (Jake Gyllenhaal) self-image is strengthening at home. When Sam unexpectedly returns to the States, a nervous mood settles over the family. Sam, uncharacteristically withdrawn and volatile, grows suspicious of his brother and his wife. Their familiar roles now nearly reversed, Sam and Tommy end up facing the ultimate physical and mental challenge when they confront each other. In the shifting family dynamics, who will dominate?

Directed by six-time Oscar® nominee Jim Sheridan (IN AMERICA, IN THE NAME OF THE FATHER), BROTHERS tells the compelling tale of how two brothers come to terms with issues of love, loyalty, and manhood—and with the woman caught between them (Natalie Portman).

Kristen Stewart's favorite outings in 2011

Over the course of this year, so far, Kristen Stewart has been spotted out and about on several occasions . . . so which is your favorite look so far?
Twilight Saga Breaking Dawn Part 1 Calendar Cover

She started out by attending the People's Choice Awards (taking a break from filming The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1 and The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2) in support of The Twilight Saga: Eclipse this January, wearing an appropriately sparkly gold Reem Acra dress (Hollywood Crush has the scoop on how to replicate the look here), wavy hair, and, of course, Jimmy Choo shoes.
Then, she was seen in Proenza Schouler for Vogue's February 2011 issue, a designer which she later repeated use of for the MET Gala in New York in May, once Breaking Dawn filming came to a close.
For the MTV Movie Awards, in early June, she chose a red, short Balmain dress (with safety pins) and black pointy heels. She also chose Balmain for the Glamour Women of the Year Awards just a few days later, only the second dress was considerably more neutral.

Warren Beatty will direct and star in Howard Hughes film

Billionaire tycoon Howard Hughes with actress Gene Tierney

"We heard on Monday that Warren Beatty made a deal with Paramount to produce, write, direct, and star in a new project after a decade-long hiatus from filmmaking. At the time, there were whispers this was the opportunity for Beatty to play legendary movie mogul Howard Hughes, a role the actor has long coveted.

American industrialist, aviator, and film producer Howard Hughes (1905 - 1976) sits with American actress and screen icon Ava Gardner (1922 - 1990) during an event in 1946.

Story details are still scarce, but Deadline hears this is indeed a Hughes-centric project that “involves an affair [Hughes] had with a young woman in the later years of his life.” Beatty’s script is not a biopic, per se. That is understandable, since Beatty is older now (74) than Hughes when he died (70). Deadline’s initial report suggested it may be a comedy.

Warren Beatty dated Natalie Wood in 1962

Beatty is going all out to assemble a supporting cast, meeting with Andrew Garfield, Alec Baldwin, Shia La Beouf, Jack Nicholson, Evan Rachel Wood, Rooney Mara, and wife Annette Bening (duh). Hughes had a lot of famous friends, and I encourage you to match this list of actors to their Old Hollywood counterparts in the comments. Given Beatty’s age, though, the film presumably takes place during Hughes’ recluse years — I do not know who kept him company at this stage in life. More after the jump:

Leonardo DiCaprio played Howard Hughes in "The AViator" (2004) directed by Martin Scorsese

Baldwin, of course, already played Pan Am founder Juan Trippe opposite a fictional Hughes (played by Leonardo DiCaprio) in The Aviator. Speaking of such conflict, how do you think Christopher Nolan — another filmmaker fascinated by the Hughes legend — feels about this development? Source:

J. Edgar [Hoover], My Week with Marilyn

Leonardo DiCaprio in the first poster of J. Edgar (2011) directed by Clint Eastwood

"In the 1930s, his easy access to FDR's White House made him a consummate Washington insider. He was a radio pundit and a regular panellist on Meet the Press in its early years on television. But after Roosevelt's death, Stone's refusal to abandon his Popular Front belief in the need for liberals and radicals to work together made him an increasingly isolated figure. During the postwar red scare, his unstinting attacks on Senator Joseph McCarthy and the FBI chief J Edgar Hoover brought the wrath of the Bureau down on his head. By 1952, he was practically deaf, out of work and saddled with a manuscript of The Hidden History of the Korean War which even the New Statesman was afraid to publish. The US state department refused to renew his passport and the Nation wouldn't give him his old job back. "I feel for the moment like a ghost", he wrote.

By the time he shut the Weekly down 18 years later, circulation had risen above 70,000 - helped in part by supporters such as Marilyn Monroe, who bought subscriptions for every member of Congress". Source:

"After wowing critics last year in “Blue Valentine” Michelle Williams is set to once again do the awards circuit, taking on one of the most iconic actresses of all time in “My Week With Marilyn.”
The project, directed by TV veteran Simon Curtis (”Cranford”), centers on Marilyn Monroe (Williams) and follows her friendship with young Englishman Colin Clark while in the country shooting “The Prince and the Showgirl” as well as her tempestuous relationship with director/co-star Laurence Olivier.

Rising star Eddie Redmayne plays Clark, with Kenneth Branagh taking on the mantle of Olivier, and a solid supporting cast including Judi Dench as actress Sybil Thorndike, Julia Ormond as Olivier’s wife Vivien Leigh, Dougray Scott as Monroe’s husband Arthur Miller, with Derek Jacobi, Dominic Cooper and Emma Watson rounding things out. The film will wiggle its hips into theaters on November 4th". Source:

President John F. Kennedy with Robert F. Kennedy and J. Edgar Hoover by Cecil Stoughton

"Bobby [Kennedy] had become even more alarmed on February 27, 1962, when he received a memo from FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover: While investigating Johnny Roselli, agents had found many calls to Judith Campbell. A check of her telephone records disclosed several phone calls to Evelyn Lincoln, President Kennedy’s personal secretary in the White House, as well as to Sam Giancana. Bobby did not know then that Frank Sinatra was the link between Judy Campbell and the President, and Judy Campbell and Sam Giancana, but he did have enough information about Sinatra’s connections to organized crime to dissuade his brother from accepting Frank’s hospitality as planned in March 1962. Bobby immediately stepped up surveillance on Giancana as well as on Judith Campbell, and dispatched J. Edgar Hoover to give the FBI reports to the President while he called Peter Lawford to cancel the President’s weekend stay at Sinatra’s house".
