Glamour's production of "These Girls" brought many famous faces out to Joe's Pub in NYC last night. Olivia Wilde had boyfriend Jason Sudeikis by her side when she wasn't delivering her monologue on stage, and Amy Poehler met up with friends inside the event. Amy posed with Rashida Jones and Aubrey Plaza after working on They Came Together earlier in the day. Connie Britton, who has the season premiere of Nashville hitting the small screen tomorrow, mingled with Carla Gugino while America Ferrera chatted up Rachel Dratch and Glamour's editor in chief, Cindi Leive. America and Amy kicked off their week at the event following a weekend in upstate New York, where they attended the wedding of Amber Tamblyn and David Cross. Also on hand for the funny evening were Meryl Streep's daughters, Mamie and Grace Gummer, Alexa Chung, Coco Rocha, and Ari Graynor.
Cohosts Eva Longoria and George Lopez presided over the ALMA Awards last night in LA. It was their third time emceeing the event together, and they ran a tight ship, considering that Eva, who was also a producer, had 11 outfit changes. After the ladies showed off their style on the ALMA Awards red carpet, the fun began on stage inside the Pasadena Civic Auditorium as honors were passed out to Latino entertainers. Honors went to a Michael Kors-clad Christina Aguilera, the special achievement winner thanks to her philanthropic work, as well as favorite actress in a drama, Colombiana's Zoe Saldana, and favorite movie actor Diego Boneta, from Rock of Ages. Further statues were distributed to Naya Rivera, Rico Rodriguez, and Ryan Lochte, whose mother is Cuban.
The red carpet at last night's ALMA Awards was star-studded. Eva Longoria led the way in a Monique Lhuillier black gown, while Zoe Saldana brought a pop of color in Gucci. Christina Aguilera and Nicole Richie also got the dark memo, each wearing intricate black gowns in Michael Kors and Mathieu Mirano, respectively. There were plenty of other celebs out to honor the year's best in Latino entertainment — click through to see Dania Ramirez, George Lopez, Jake Gyllenhaal, Aubrey Plaza, and many more. Eva hosted the ALMA Awards with George for the third time. She went on to change into a whopping 11 outfits, and they'll all be on display when the show airs on NBC this Friday at 8/7 p.m. Central.
In the trailer for The To Do List, Aubrey Plaza plays a high schooler in the '90s who gives herself quite a checklist of tasks. Let me be clear — everything on her list is pretty dirty, because her character, Brandy, is trying to get as much sexual experience as she can before heading off to college. Previously titled Hand Job, the movie's cast is made up of an impressive ensemble of TV stars, including Connie Britton, Andy Samberg, Rachel Bilson, and Bill Hader (whose wife, Maggie Carey, wrote and directed the movie). Scott Porter also pops up to play Brandy's crush, while Donald Glover is the friend who's more than willing to experiment with her.
This red-band trailer is definitely not safe for work, but it is very funny — I particularity liked Bilson as Brandy's sister and the '90s references — even if Plaza herself interrupts the teaser a few times to tell you about the movie. As the lady says, The To Do List comes out on Valentine's Day 2013, but you can get your first look after the jump.
Stars hit the blue carpet for yesterday's Do Something Awards in Santa Monica. Glee's Lea Michele and Cory Monteith showed PDA before heading inside the Barker Hangar to mingle with other do-gooder celebs like Kristen Bell, Dax Shepard, and even Ben Affleck. Ben was at the Do Something Awards to present the $100,000 grand prize to a youth activist. He was also honored for his work in Africa on his Eastern Congo Initiative. The proceedings were run by the male stars of New Girl, Jake Johnson, Max Greenfield, and Lamorne Morris. The three stopped for a moment to pose with Joel McHale. There were plenty of other stars in attendance — click through to see Ashley Greene, Sophia Bush, Nikki Reed, and more. You can check out the full Do Something Awards when they air tomorrow at 8 p.m. ET on VH1.
Channing Tatum's mug has been all over the big screen in 2012, and he's back once again in 10 Years. Don't expect a big blockbuster opening this time, though; the little indie dramedy looks more like the kind of film you'll ultimately watch when it comes out on DVD. It's not that the trailer is terrible: 10 Years has an amazing cast, which includes Jenna Dewan, Justin Long, Ari Graynor, Rosario Dawson, Chris Pratt, and Aubrey Plaza, as just a few of the former students (and their significant others) that are catching up at their reunion. The problem is that the trailer is wholly unremarkable. The comedic parts are just mildly charming, and the dramatic parts seem overly cheesy.
Tatum is at the core of a story as a guy who's moved on and fallen in love after high school (with his real wife, Dewan), but obviously still has some leftover feelings for his high school love (Dawson). The rest of the pack seem to be a mixed bag of people who have changed and others who have never really moved on from their teenage years. The movie hits theaters on Sept. 14, so check the trailer when you read more
Ashley Greene hosted last night's Young Hollywood Awards, where celebrities including January Jones, Kiernan Shipka, Aubrey Plaza, and Chris Pratt took to the stage. Emcee Ashley was also a winner, as she was presented with 2012's Superstar of Tomorrow. Magic Mike's Alex Pettyfer was given the male equivalent. Further honors went to Modern Family's Rico Rodriguez and Nolan Gould, who shared the title of Young Hollywood's Scene Stealer. Their costar Ed O'Neill handed off the statue. Nolan told us, "When Ed O'Neill says yeah, he'll present an award, it means a lot."
The event, held at the Hollywood Athletic Club, also brought out Style Icon winner, Ginnifer Goodwin, as well as Veteran of the Year James Van Der Beek. Sophia Bush was recognized for her work with nonprofits. The Big Philanthropy prize was a thrill, and she said, "I think it's an amazing thing that philanthropy and giving back and caring about other people is becoming really cool." Be sure to catch PopSugar Rush this afternoon for even more interviews.
Aubrey Plaza's deadpan delivery might define her Parks and Recreation character, April, but in Safety Not Guaranteed, the comedic actress gets the chance to show a slightly more sentimental side. We caught up with Aubrey at a recent press day for the indie film in LA, where she talked about switching gears with the project and what's up next for April and Andy. Aubrey told us she's been pushing for a Parks and Recreation baby, and also dished about her next movie, The Hand Job. In it, she plays a college-bound teen determined to get some sexual experience under her belt before Summer's over — a role that Aubrey admits required its share of extremely awkward scenes. Safety Not Guaranteed arrives in select theaters this weekend.
Summer is a time to kick back and relax, unless you're one of the ladies on the "fierce" end of our Summer movie spectrum.

Can't wait until June 8 to see Aubrey Plaza and Mark Duplass in Safety Not Guaranteed? Good news, we've got an exclusive clip of the two in the upcoming comedy about a newspaper reporter (Plaza) following up on a man (Duplass) who posted an ad for a time travel companion in the paper. I'm pretty sure they're not time traveling in this particular scene, but Duplass's character does tell a super sweet story about his childhood. Check out the clip and stay tuned for more about the movie, which also stars New Girl's Jake Johnson!
