Wearing a navy Obama T-shirt and skull cap, Matt Damon picked up crab meat ravioli and chicken Parmigiana at Miami Beach’s Cafe Prima Pasta for a quiet dinner at home with wife Luciana. “Even though Matt said he was feeling under the weather, he stopped for a photo with fans,” says a source. “What a great guy.”
Miley Cyrus, joking around with the paparazzi who were trailing her and Mandy Jiroux as the BFFs shopped at Royal Duchess in Los Angeles. Cyrus spotted a sparkly sleep mask with “no paparazzi” printed on it – and she enthusiastically pointed at it, saying, “I want that!” The girls then went inside the store and continued “laughing and giggling,” says an onlooker.
Meanwhile, Ryan Gosling hung out with Simon Rex as the band Ima Robot performed at the Roxy in L.A. during the Skull & Phones party. The two seemed into the industry scene, though Gosling had a date: an attractive brunette. The actor – and sometimes deejay – has been concert hopping lately too: He recently caught the Department of Eagles at the Troubadour.
Katy Perry, soaking up the attention while out with a big group of friends at new L.A. lounge h.wood. The “Hot N Cold” singer was dancing like crazy, and even got swooped up by one of her guy friends, who lifted Perry in the air and spun her in circles.
Avril Lavigne, eating a late dinner with a gal pal at BondSt Beverly Hills. The singer ordered shrimp tempura and “looked really happy,” says an onlooker, who also saw Lavigne “joking around with one of the waiters.”
