Is he a Housewives fan? Hugh Jackman had a run-in with Real Housewives of New York City’s Jill Zarin at New York’s Spice Market, where the Aussie was celebrating the new PBS show the Kimchi Chronicles. The two – who attended the bash with their significant others – chatted about Australia, where Zarin recently visited with hubby Bobby. Later, Jackman and wife Deborra-Lee ducked into the restaurant’s kitchen to sample Korean-inspired hors d’oeuvres prepared by chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten, who stars in the foodie travel show with his wife Marja.
Courteney Cox came out to support estranged hubby David Arquette at his Beacher’s Madhouse bash inside the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel – and the two spent plenty of time together. The Cougar Town star was one of the first guests to arrive, and took in the vaudeville show from the front row. At one point, Cox, who was sipping on vodka drinks, danced with Arquette on a ledge as she sang along to the music. Says an onlooker, “They looked so comfortable together – and like there was still a spark.”
Also at Beacher’s: newly minted Two and a Half Men star Ashton Kutcher, who sipped water in his roped-off section. The actor kept mostly to himself but seemed to really enjoy it when little people – strapped to harnesses – “flew” to tables to drop off bottles of alcohol.
Jake Gyllenhaal and The Voice coach Adam Levine met up for a movie together at the Arclight Cinemas in L.A. Earlier in the evening, the actor had dinner at Napa Valley Grille for what seemed to be a business meeting. As for what he ate? Gyllenhaal ordered soft shell crab and garlic fries, and washed it down with a beer.
