Has notorious party boy Colin Farrell tamed his ways? Apparently not. When asked about the city’s nightlife during the London premiere of Alexander, the actor said: “I love it. It’s great. Loads to do – the bars, the restaurants, the clubs – loads to do. I was here for two months doing Alexander, and we didn’t really leave the hotel bar.” Costar Val Kilmer can vouch. “He’s a lot of fun,” Kilmer said of Farrell. “I’m still hurting from last night in Madrid. And I like Madrid! But I don’t remember any of it. He has this amazing power.”
Shopping for Romance
How do Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony keep their spark? The pair (with four bodyguards) stopped by chic Melrose Avenue shop Elixir in L.A. on a recent afternoon, where they picked up candles, bath salts and six CDs including Billie Holiday’s Greatest Hits. They also bought one of those decks of cards with a different massage technique printed on each one. Though Lopez was selecting the treats, Anthony was definitely interested and involved, say our spies.
What’s in the Bag?
If it’s January, that means award-show season has begun, with last night’s People’s Choice kicking off the festivities. Of course, celebs who participate get more than accolades, borrowed jewelry and fabulous clothes – they also get to take home oodles of free goodies. Here are just a few of the items hosts Jason Alexander and Malcolm-Jamal Warner (stars of the CBS sitcom Listen Up), and presenters (who included Ellen DeGeneres, Josh Duhamel, William Shatner, Prince, Jessica Simpson, Nick Lachey and Wilmer Valderrama) got for their trouble: XM Satellite radios with one year of service; Sanyo/Sprint multimedia cell phone; two free nights in a deluxe cottage at Hotel Hana-Maui; complimentary Lasik eye surgery; Jacqui Chazen ribbon watches; a year membership at Gold’s Gym (and free track suit); and Mr. Clean Vintage T-shirts.
