Dedicated, borderline obsessive Twilight fans have been a much-discussed phenomenon ever since Robert Pattinson donned his first pair of fangs, but even the most fanatical of the Cullenites would be impressed by the flock currently gathered outside of L.A. Live. Starting at 6 a.m. PT on Thursday, Summit began admitting fans into the massive tent city constructed outside of L.A. Live’s Nokia Theater, where they will wait anxiously for the chance to see their favorite stars at The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 1 red carpet premiere – on Monday. Hundreds of fans are currently napping under the first tent, while the crew frantically assembles another to house hundreds more before the rain hits. READ FULL STORY

'The X Factor' on the scene: Simon's flirting, Nicole's wardrobe malfunctions, and everything else you didn't see on TV
Many apologies if some of the things that I’m saying here sound irrelevant, or maybe even a little bit silly. In my defense, stepping into The X Factor‘s Adam-B.-Vary-christened Xanadome causes immediate side effects of hearing loss, confusion, mass hysteria — just total sensory overload. In other words, it’s fun!
A lot of this fun (and plenty of heartbreak) was delivered straight to your television for your viewing pleasure, but, as always, there were plenty of things that you didn’t see on TV last night. To get the full scoop you should probably consult the two diehard “Simon groupies” from Iowa who were sitting next to me, because those ladies made the Idol junkies look amateur. They each donated $2,000 to charity for their tickets! But for now you’re stuck with me, and I can tell you that most of the judges were feeling the heat last night. Simon Cowell could barely sit still, and Paula Abdul was giving out group hugs as if they were candy. Candy, I tell you! Read on for all the details on those things and more inside the studio at X Factor last night: READ FULL STORY
Jason Reitman gathers Jennifer Garner, Aaron Paul and more for star-studded reading of 'The Breakfast Club'
Last night, a crowd of industry insiders and excited film enthusiasts gathered at the Bing Theater at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) for a live table-read of John Hughes’ The Breakfast Club. This time, instead of Molly Ringwald and the gang, Up in the Air director Jason Reitman gathered an equally eclectic group of actors to reimagine the diverse sterotypes portrayed in the film. A lovely and very pregnant Jennifer Garner was beauty queen Claire (Molly Ringwald), James Van Der Beek was Andy the jock (Emilio Estevez), Mindy Kaling was basket case Allison (Ally Sheedy), Patton Oswalt was Brian the geek (Anthony Michael Hall), and, probably best of all, Breaking Bad‘s Aaron Paul was the criminal Bender (Judd Nelson). Rounding up the cast as those ever-meddling adults (cue eye-roll) were J.K. Simmons as Carl the janitor, and Michael Chiklis as Mr. Vernon. Reitman himself called out the directions on stage, while images from the film flashed on stage to signal a change of scene.
The fifth season of The Celebrity Apprentice is underway, and the ladies of Team As-Yet-To-Be-Named-But-Hopefully-It’s-Something-Like-Fabulicious! took to New York’s West 52nd Street to sell their wares during a lunchtime charity challenge. Previously announced contestant Cheryl Tiegs braved the paps with Miss Universe 2008 Dayana Mendoza of Venezuela (pictured left) and Miss New York USA 2011 Amber Collins to hand out fliers. Sandwich seekers walked a red carpet in and even got their photo taken by an on-scene photographer. But what awaited me inside? Read on to find out and see the ladies’ menu. READ FULL STORY
Nothing lowers one’s own creative ego like watching Joseph Gordon-Levitt. The energetic 30-year-old performer can act, dance, direct short films, write songs, play the guitar and drums, and even sing in French.
All of Gordon-Levitt’s talents — plus those of special guests Anne Hathaway, Gary Oldman, and Neil Patrick Harris — were on display Monday night during the HitRECord Fall Formal at the Orpheum Theatre in downtown Los Angeles. HitRECord is Gordon-Levitt’s online production company, where he and thousands of other contributors collaboratively create movies, music, and short stories. The Fall Formal was an opportunity for Gordon-Levitt to showcase some of their diverse output. (Check out the video below.) READ FULL STORY
