GAGA FOR GEORGE CLOONEY
Although George Clooney’s current girlfriend, Stacey Kiebler, already made her Dancing With The Stars debut, Kim Johnson told onlookers at The Wella Professionals Beauty Bar that he should definitely show off his moves next and is hoping that he will be amongst the announced show participants this upcoming Tuesday. How is Kim prepping for the season? Drinking lots of Emergen-c on set! The blond grabbed a few packs to go backstage… Clooney seemed to be the topic of conversation amongst the women onsite, as his co-the star Shailene Woodley received an award for best supporting actress in The Descendants, she paid acomplimented to him by saying, “George Clooney is a phenomenal super human.” The grateful young starlet also mentioned that she is very down to earth and actually enjoys climbing trees as a form of exercise, right before picking up a pair of New Balance 1400, followed by a stop at Fashion Forms. Last but not least, actor Matthew Lillard exclaimed that his “celebrity crush” is no other than George Clooney! Claiming that, “George Clooney is even more handsome and even more down to earth in real life.” He also slipped into a pair of New Balance and headed over to AMC Entertainment to check out their offerings. Maybe he’ll use his AMC card to watch the latest Clooney flick?
AWAKENING NEW ASPIRATIONS
Wilmer Valderrama and Jason Isaacs were finishing each other’s sentences as they told onlookers about their new TV series Awake at The Wella Professionals Beauty Bar. Wilmer excitedly added that the show’s brand new concept will give NBC a boost and save the network from Smash, which has not been doing well. Their minds were not only work focused… Wilmer’s thoughts were on his ex Lindsay Lohan, saying that he’s happy for her upcoming SNL hosting gig, that they’ll always be friends and he’ll support her through all her endeavors. Right behind him, Jason told a friend that he would love to see his kids more and that he is tired of skyping with them from countries like Hungry; he picked up a few Bratz fun fashion dolls for them, before heading over to Crunch, Tree Hut, & Votre Vu.
ROMANTIC WEEKEND FOR TWO…
William H. Macey stopped by the AMC Theatres area backstage at the Spirit Awards on Saturday, sans wife Felicity Huffman. Even though his Desperate Housewife was at home with kids, the Shameless star showed off his romantic side and picked up a weekend stay the Ritz-Carlton New York, Central Park, so that the two can enjoy a well-deserved getaway after the long award season.
FITNESS TIPS FROM THE STARS
Actress Garcelle Beauvais was in a relaxed mood as she entered The Wella Professionals Beauty Bar on Saturday, explaining the current balance she has in her life at the moment. Apart from keeping her body fit with cardio bar exercises, boxing and pilates, and even occasional cardio striptease classes at Crunch, the star is currently anticipating the release of her upcoming film, Flight, starring opposite Denzel Washington. She’s not the only one keeping in shape… Anna Kendrick was overheard discussing her fitness regimen as well. She is a yogi – and finally working in her hometown of Los Angeles after many months. Now, she can fully focus on her body by not spreading herself too thin (the girl was in 7 movies last year)… Sarah Parston was also feeling the fitness vibe set in the gift lounge. She made sure to stop at both fitness motivated stations, New Balance andCrunch. Later, the actress couldn’t stray away from snatching up some Bowers & Wilkins headphones so she can listen to the device’s state of the art sound while she gets her sweat on! Her motivation? Her new Cult of Individuality jeans of course.
