Talk about a bunch of dream girls: Gwyneth Paltrow, Reese Witherspoon, Cameron Diaz and Beyoncé are reportedly coming together for a movie musical project.
Director and "Glee" creator Ryan Murphy has, according to Deadline, recruited the stars to combine forces for "One Hit Wonders," which follows three '90s music sensations whose tanked careers inspire them to join forces in a present-day supergroup.
The idea reportedly sprang from a chatty dinner Murphy had with Paltrow, Witherspoon and Diaz (the film's title trifecta) at West Hollywood's Soho House in December.
It's unclear what Beyoncé will come aboard to do, but she's plenty occupied with her new baby Blue Ivy and a presumably close start to Clint Eastwood's "A Star Is Born" update.
Andy Samberg will lend his musical and comedy talents to original songs for the flick. The "SNL" cast member is part of the popular hip-hop/R&B parody group Lonely Island.
Oscar winner or Oscar loser, anyone can break even at the Academy Awards' most exclusive after-party — anyone who's been invited, that is. And so another year of Vanity Fair madness came to pass, with magazine Editor Graydon Carter hosting a new crop of film honorees, luminaries from politics, art and fashion, and even some royalty.
The Sunset Tower Hotel was a glamorous war zone of barricaded fans, tinted SUVs and paparazzi Sunday evening as folks made their way to the fete from the telecast in Hollywood.
Carter had first welcomed 130 guests for dinner and the show, among them Amy Adams, Jon Hamm and Jennifer Westfeldt, Bill Maher, Les Moonves and Julie Chen, Sofia Vergara, Jason Sudeikis and Olivia Wilde, George Lucas, Tom Ford, Jane Fonda, Claire Danes and Chris Martin.
After "The Artist" claimed best picture, dinner tables were cleared and doors opened to the likes of Gwyneth Paltrow, who joined husband Martin for a cocktail. Paltrow wasn't shy about her admiration for several famous guests, at one point retrieving her smartphone and asking Steve Martin and Martin Short to take a photo with her.
Paula Patton had been telling us for weeks about her anxiety over a dress for the occasion, eventually going with a Naeem Khan mini. "I had to pull the trigger, so I went short," she said. "I love long gowns, but this just felt right."
At that precise moment, everyone stopped to appreciate Cameron Diaz and her gown, a form-fitting red-orange number.
Thanks to their creative endeavors, some New Yorkers came to town, among them "Saturday Night Live" star and original screenplay nominee Kristen Wiig. Plenty of funny females surrounded her, including Maya Rudolph, Tina Fey and Melissa McCarthy.
Kate Hudson stepped out with fiance Matt Bellamy, both looking excited for a date night away from their new baby -- pictures of whom Hudson shared excitedly with Owen Wilson.
Golden Globe winner Meryl Streep referred to Harvey Weinstein as "god" in her acceptance speech Sunday, taking the prize for actress in a drama. And if that's the case, Meryl, everyone went to god's house Sunday night.
The location was the former BAR210 space at the Beverly Hilton, tented and furnished in black to house the Weinstein Co.'s formal after-party celebrating many significant wins at the Hollywood Foreign Press Assn.'s big night.
Harvey's leading ladies brought Globes home -- Streep for "The Iron Lady" and Michelle Williams for "My Week With Marilyn" -- and to the party for that matter, celebrating victories with well-wishers including Cameron Diaz (showing once again with Diddy), Ewan McGregor, Viola Davis and Alexander Skarsgard.
The Ministry ran into Jean Dujardin of "The Artist," who won for actor in a musical or comedy, huddled with his producers in a corner.
"Shocked," he told us of his feelings on the win, staring down at his statuette. And where will the prize live? "In my bed," he said, pressing it to his face and snuggling it (this man really is the French Clooney, we may or may not have blushed).
Madonna popped by to see Mr. Weinstein after grabbing a win for best original song with "Masterpiece" from her film "W.E.," but stayed only a few moments before disappearing as an ageless Jane Fonda entered with a gentleman escort, fur stole wrapped around her shoulders and ready to schmooze.
Speaking of schmoozing, Relativity Media exec Ryan Kavanaugh picked over hors d'oeuvres at a table with Rob Lowe while Les Moonves and Julie Chen said hello to Penny Marshall. Mark Salling and Cory Monteith of "Glee" roamed with Malin Ackerman and Lindsay Lohan nearby.
As for Weinstein himself, he kept the company of Leonardo DiCaprio -- and those countless other worshippers Sunday night.
The annual list of highest-paid actresses in Hollywood has hit -- and it looks like lunch this year is on Angelina Jolie and Sarah Jessica Parker.
The big-screen women tied for top-earning actress, clocking in with $30 million each earned from May 2010 to May 2011, according to the annual ranking compiled by Forbes magazine.
The list relies purely on income to rank the luminaries, among them Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon and Cameron Diaz.
What's notable about Jolie's take is that her dough comes solely from film-related income (read: the only surefire movie star) earned on star turns in "Salt" and "The Tourist" as well as her directorial debut, a yet-to-be-released Bosnian love story called "In the Land of Blood and Honey."
Parker, while just as successful, counted cash from perfume lines and a design collaboration with Halston Heritage.
Like the next actress, Aniston has had her share of non-blockbusters, but "Just Go With It," costarring Adam Sandler, marked her fourth-highest domestic opening, Forbes noted. Witherspoon didn't hit big with the romcom "How Do You Know?" but still cashed the same size check as Jen: $28 million.
Julia Roberts came in on their heels at $20 million, followed by Kristen Stewart of "The Twilight Saga" at the same rate. Producer-actress Katherine Heigl earned $19 million for toys for daughter Naleigh, and Diaz took in $18 million as a cushy "Bad Teacher" bonus.
Sandra Bullock folded about $15 million, while her kissing partner Meryl Streep clocked in at $10 million.
As lots of quite good teachers were wrapping up the school year, one hot "Bad Teacher" rolled into Manhattan on Monday night, bringing Cameron Diaz, Jason Segel and more on the red-carpet field trip.
Diaz, rocking a hot-for-teacher mini-skirt, was joined by fellow cast members including ex-beau Justin Timberlake, Lucy Punch, Thomas Lennon, Adrian Kali Turner, Matthew Evans, Kaitlyn Dever and Phyllis Smith.
Weird Al Yankovich, who recently appeared in drag for his Lady Gaga parody "Perform This Way," took time at the premiere to clarify what happened with the dust-up around the release of "Perform This Way": "It was a big misunderstanding, miscommunication," he told MTV. "The bottom line is it's a happy ending. Lady Gaga approves it; she's totally cool and she really likes the parody."
There was also a mini "Dancing With the Stars" reunion as Kirstie Alley, Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Ralph Macchio made the scene. Also spotted: Leslie David Baker of "The Office" and actor Ben Kingsley. Click the pics for more photos from the "Bad Teacher red carpet.
Following the screening at the Ziegfeld Theatre, the action moved to an after-party at the Bowery Hotel, where director Jake Kasdan -- who has a past with Segel's "Freaks and Geeks" -- schmoozed with studio bigwigs Amy Pascal of Sony Pictures Entertainment and Doug Belgrad of Columbia Pictures.
Meanwhile, actor John Michael Higgins, who plays the school principal in the raunchy comedy, got caught playing hooky: He was spotted in L.A. on Monday night at the Left Coast premiere party for FX's "Wilfred" and "Louie."

After the last golden popcorn statue was handed out at Sunday night's MTV Movie Awards, famous folks stepped out to play -- among them "Horrible Bosses" costar Jennifer Aniston with her new man, Justin Theroux.
The MTV Movie Awards after-party was thrown by talent agency CAA at Soho House in honor of show host Jason Sudeikis -- where plenty of his pals stopped by to say congratulations.
Aniston, who pinned up her blond bob and rocked a simple black trench, stuck close by bearded Theroux and chatted with the likes of Sudeikis and Team Jen friend Chelsea Handler. Aniston and Theroux have been an item publicly for about a month, taking dinner dates at the Sunset Tower Hotel and reportedly headlining a small party hosted by the actress over Memorial Day weekend to introduce the actor-writer to her pals.
Cameron Diaz circulated around MTV Generation Award winner Reese Witherspoon, funnymen Aziz Ansari and Joel McHale, "Captain America" hunk Chris Evans, Chace Crawford and "Harry Potter" star Emma Watson.
Grey Goose cocktails and mini-sliders sated the exclusive bunch, which also counted among its ranks "Vampire Diaries" actress Nina Dobrev and Disney guy Sterling Knight.
With a giant photo of actor James Dean looming over the entrance to Los Angeles' Sunset Tower Hotel, Vanity Fair welcomed an army of stars to its 2011 Academy Awards post-party.
Notoriously exclusive and always glamorous, the annual event did not disappoint as big winners including Natalie Portman, Colin Firth, Melissa Leo and director Tom Hooper came with trophies in hand to greet Editor in Chief Graydon Carter.
Portman was naturally the belle of the ball, hand-in-hand with fiance Benjamin Millipied as countless people congratulated her on her awards-season sweep.
Jude Law palled around with Cameron Diaz and "Contagion" costar Gwyneth Paltrow while Gabrielle Union chatted with Jamie Foxx -- who then ran into his friend Jessica Biel. Biel and Foxx went off together to circulate while Justin Timberlake stood with Andrew Garfield and his girlfriend.
Gorgeous women weren't in short supply, including newly single Scarlett Johansson, who was engaged in deep conversation with Tim Burton and Helena Bonham Carter. Though this was Portman's year, few could quite contain themselves when nominee Michelle Williams floated by.
In stunning Chanel haute couture, Williams had a soft glow that stopped conversations and, frankly, assured us she'll make a convincing Marilyn Monroe in the forthcoming "My Week With Marilyn."
Let us not forget Williams' humble roots, however: She looked right at home speaking with former "Dawson's Creek" costar Busy Phillips.
Star couples -- including Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson, designer Tom Ford and Richard Buckley, Reese Witherspoon and Jim Toth, Jon Hamm and Jennifer Westfeldt, Liev Schreiber and Naomi Watts, and Judd Apatow and Leslie Mann -- put up unified fronts.
But no couple was so convincing as Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez, the picture of young Hollywood come to the grown-ups' table, running back and forth between the Tower bar and terrace holding hands (yes, they were). Taylor Swift made an appearance in a gold mini, snacking from a cone full of In-N-Out Burger fries that was getting passed around. Meanwhile, her former flames Jake Gyllenhaal and Joe Jonas worked the crowd.
It's a good year to be a television star, being that many small-screen favorites were invited to film's big night: Sofia Vergara of "Modern Family" and "Glee" folks including Lea Michele, Chris Colfer and Matthew Morrison made the scene.
Fellow gleek Dianna Agron showed up, looking nowhere near as traumatized as some since-debunked reports would have her after her split with actor Alex Pettyfer.
Cameron Diaz is no stranger to butt-kicking -- she's played a sassy action heroine numerous times in such films as "Charlie's Angels" and "Knight and Day." But even though her latest movie is an action comedy, "The Green Hornet" with Seth Rogen and Jay Chou, Diaz doesn't get to do any stunts this time around.
"I didn't really get to do anything in this movie. They did it all," Diaz said at the film's premiere in Hollywood on Monday night, referring to her costars. "I went away to make 'Knight and Day' and I came back and they had made an action movie. And I had no idea."
Diaz, by her own admission, knew little about the past incarnations of "The Green Hornet," which began as a radio serial and later became a television show.
"I never really watched it, and they told me, 'Don't. Don't worry about it. We're going to be writing our own -- this is it's own thing. We're creating our own version of it," Diaz said.
Rogen, on the other hand, was very familiar with the superhero. He grew up with "The Green Hornet" and ultimately co-wrote the film, out Friday.
"It's pretty amazing that it's actually coming to fruition and that we actually like it," Rogen said of the project.
Rogen's right-hand man in the film, Kato, is played by Chou -- a Taiwanese pop-music superstar who has his first American movie role in "The Green Hornet." Chou walked down the green carpet with a translator, although he has learned a fair bit of English since he had his first meeting with the film's producers via Skype.
"It was strange," he recalled of the Internet meeting. "Very difficult because the language, English, it's a problem for me. So [I was] very nervous when I meet [the producers for the] first time. But right now, I fixed this. I speak English."
Cast members Edward James Olmos, Edward Furlong, Jamie Harris and David Harbour also hit the red carpet, as did the movie's director, Michel Gondry, with singer Becky Stark. The premiere was followed by an after-party at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel.
Also spotted: Judd Apatow, Sophia Bush, Garcelle Beauvais, Sara Rue, Michael Clarke Duncan with "The Apprentice" villain Omarosa Manigault Stallworth, Tom Green, Christopher Mintz-Plasse and Shelby Young of "The Social Network."
"The Green Hornet" opens Friday in theaters. Click the pic of Diaz and Rogen, above, for pictures from the red carpet.
Alex Rodriguez and Cameron Diaz, they of the on-again-off-again-no-we're-not-but-we-really-are relationship, have been luxuriating in Los Cabos, Mexico, this fine holiday week.
Diaz departed from a rainy Los Angeles on Sunday in her boots and jeans only to peel off the layers at a luxurious Cabo resort where she greeted the New York Yankee and his daughters, Ella and Natasha.
While November rumors had the pair broken up after seven months, the bonding time south of the border would suggest the two are as strong as ever.
On Wednesday, Diaz greeted her pal George Clooney, who was staying at the resort in his own fabulous quarters -- with his fabulously built girlfriend Elisabetta Canalis. Thursday, Diaz and her man A-Rod got physical.
As in, the two were spotted paddle-boarding in the ocean.
Sounds like a lovely long holiday in the sand, no?
