LOS ANGELES – Mike Myers worked hard to study up on being the “Love Guru” for his latest comedy, but nothing could prepare the comedian for co-starring with the stunning Jessica Alba.
“She would come to set and there would be audible gasps from all of us. I was like … wow,” Myers told Pop Tarts at last week’s Hollywood premiere, referring to Alba’s pleasing aesthetic. “Jessica Alba is not only one of the most down-to-earth, lovely people that I have ever met, she’s one of the most beautiful people I’ve ever seen in my life.”
But while Myers was in awe of Alba, fellow actor Romany Malco couldn’t control himself in her presence.
“Jessica’s so easy it’s crazy, because she’s so down and easy that she’s really approachable,” he said. “When I first met Jessica I just started rambling. We just rambled for hours.”
Justin Timberlake also makes quite an impression in the comedy, but that probably has more to do with wearing nothing but some stretchy Speedos.
“We had a ball making this film — that was the wrong choice of words, wasn’t it?” Timberlake stammered. “Ah, we had a lot of fun making this film.”
Julianne Hough Had 'Chemistry' With Castroneves and Carolla
"Dancing With the Stars" sweetheart turned country crooner Julianne Hough has been the center of tabloid talk for a couple of seasons now, due to rumored romances with dance partners Hélio Castroneves and Adam Carolla — so we got the 19-year-old to set the record straight.
"You have to have good chemistry when you dance or do a duet with somebody, and that's what makes a great performance or entertainment," Hough said. "It's funny that I've been linked to both of them and would never go there — they're like best friends to me."
But unlike so many other young starlets who loathe the press and paps, Hough has no hard feelings.
"It is really weird to see things and read things about you and just that people are even interested," she said. "But it is very flattering, and I can't thank them enough."
This summer, Julianne is leaving the samba behind to do a little honky-tonking instead, and will open for country music legend Brad Paisley on his American tour.
"Music is my passion. I've been singing longer than I've been dancing, and it was always country music," she said. "I've always had these great dancing opportunities, but I feel like I'm right where I'm supposed to be. With everything happening right now, I couldn't be more thrilled."
Chris Brown Serenades 16-Year-Old Mini Mogul
Chris Brown spent his Saturday night getting up close and personal with a young beauty that wasn't rumored girlfriend Rihanna — instead, his night was dedicated to Russian fashion designer Kira Plastinina.
Plastinina (who turned sweet 16 just days ago) already has more than 40 self-titled clothing stores in Russia but spent Saturday evening celebrating her official U.S. launch with a super swanky soiree in Los Angeles.
So when you're the heiress to a billionaire, having Chris Brown perform at your party is probably equivalent to a few pennies. Plastinina also flew over one of the most in-demand celeb spinners, DJ KISS, from New York, and produced a full fashion show and a designer-decorated party where even the water bottles and bathroom wipes were branded with her logo.
Brown brought the hundreds of party peeps (ranging from ages 5 to 75) to their feet as he sang sensationally and strutted his signature moves before bringing Plastinina to the stage, wrapping his arms around her and serenading the talented teen down the runway.
But Rihanna wasn't forgotten — Brown gave the crowd an interesting rendition of "Umbrella" with his girl's pre-recorded voice in the background.
Pop Tarts also spotted heaps of other Hollywood hotties hobnobbing between the plush VIP lounges, including the likes of Adrian Grenier, Audrina Patridge, Tara Reid and Hayden Panettiere. Pretty impressive that such a relatively unknown young gal can bring so many big names to her bash.
Getting Serious? Lance Accompanies Kate for Father’s Day
Lance Armstrong and Kate Hudson only just started dating, but it seems as though he is already playing the father figure. The retired road-racing cyclist tagged along with Hudson, her ex-husband Chris Robinson, their 4-year-old son Ryder and Robinson’s girlfriend to a Father’s Day brunch in New York City on Sunday.
According to Us Weekly, Ryder even rode separately to the Brooklyn café with Armstrong and appeared very comfortable in his company. Hudson and Armstrong were later snapped leaving Hudson's Manhattan apartment.
