Scarlett Johansson was holding court on a star-studded patio at West Hollywood’s Chateau Marmont. The actress sipped a glass of red wine as she sat with her back to other restaurant patrons and had what appeared to be a business meeting with a male companion. Nearby, Zachary Quinto was dining at a small table with a male pal, and the two chatted with their waiter for a bit during their meal.
Newly single Jessica Biel and new Playing the Field costar Gerard Butler were sharing dinner (literally!) while on a break from shooting their new movie in Shreveport, La. The two were eating at Tokyo Japanese Restaurant along with other members of their cast and crew. Butler ordered a green tea, and mostly picked off of Biel’s plate, the restaurant’s hostess tells us. But the social actor made the rounds, chatting up his colleagues (and fellow diners) before returning to Biel’s side.
Liv Tyler was hanging out with her dad, American Idol judge Steven Tyler, and his girlfriend at a bash celebrating her new movie, Super, at Hollywood’s Supper Club. The family was eating turkey Fatburgers at the soiree, which also drew out Liv’s costars Ellen Page, who was excited to dance, and Rainn Wilson.
DWTS contestant Petra Nemcova and her partner Dmitry Chaplin celebrated the show’s first episode with a bash at SBE’s The Abbey in West Hollywood along with 125 guests. “Everyone was literally dancing in the middle of the bar,” says one guest. Most of the DWTS gang circled up together, and the guest adds: “It was a blast for them; they let out some nerves!”
