Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer hit the town last night to celebrate the GREAT British Film Reception. The bash was held at the British Consul General's Residence, and after posing on a red carpet, the True Blood couple headed inside to mingle with Les Miserables director Tom Hooper as well as Man of Steel actor Henry Cavill and his girlfriend Gina Carano. While Anna is Australian, both Henry and Stephen are Brits who seemed happy to mingle with their fellow countryman Tom. Anna and Stephen have had quite a fun week so far — they also attended a star-studded Tom Ford party a few days ago. They're among the many actors and actresses hitting the town before the Oscars, which are tomorrow!
Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer attended Tom Ford's cocktail event in support of Project Angel Food in Beverly Hills last night. Anna wore a sexy black dress as she posed for photos with husband Stephen. The True Blood couple weren't the only lovebirds at the event: Henry Cavill had girlfriend Gina Carano on his arm, while Elton John brought husband David Furnish to the stylist fete. Girls star Allison Williams also dropped by in a stunning embroidered black-and-white frock.
The Tom Ford bash was just one of several pre-Oscars events that took place in LA last night. Party-hopper Adrien Brody managed to visit three parties, including the Tom Ford event and a Vanity Fair bash with Josh Hartnett. It's all leading up to the big show on Sunday — be sure to join us Feb. 24 for our LIVE Oscars viewing party starting at 5:30 p.m. EST / 2:30 p.m. PST.
Blake Lively was decked out in Dolce & Gabbana last night for the NYC premiere of Haywire. She's not in the movie, but leads Ewan McGregor and Gina Carano were there from the cast, along with director Steven Soderbergh. The picture hits theaters tomorrow on Jan. 20, and so far the Haywire reviews are great. Justin Bartha and Elizabeth Banks also rolled through to check out the screening, and joined the festivities at the afterparty, held at Sons of Essex.
Blake and Steven will work together soon, though. It was recently announced that Blake will star in Soderbergh's The Side Effects opposite Channing Tatum and Jude Law. For now, it's Gossip Girl that's Blake's main focus, as is her relationship with Ryan Reynolds.
Gina Carano may be a new face to some moviegoers, but for mixed martial arts enthusiasts, she's a household name! Director Steven Soderbergh built his new movie Haywire around Gina after seeing her butt-kicking abilities in a match. She recently told us all about how she and Steven first crossed paths, and also shared a couple tips for MMA newcomer Ryan Gosling. Find out what Gina told us, and check out Haywire in theaters this Friday.
Steven Soderbergh's new film Haywire (previously known as Knockout) boasts a cast of well-known actors like Michael Douglas, Ewan McGregor, Michael Fassbender, and Channing Tatum, but its central character is virtually unknown — unless you follow the world of mixed martial arts. MMA star Gina Carano has her first film role in Haywire as Mallory Kane, a former black-ops officer who was betrayed by her colleagues and has to go on the run. In her personal mission to figure out why she was sold out, she gets to beat the living crap out of those who are trying to stop her, like Fassbender and Tatum.
The trailer is action-heavy, and though I'm not super into fight scenes, it's intense to see Carano getting to go head-to-head and best the boys. The trailer was revealed at Comic-Con, but you can get a look at it when you read more
