Cameron Diaz, Matthew Morrison celebrate Bardot Sessions' birthday

Cameron-diaz-matthew-morrison Cameron Diaz and "Glee" star Matthew Morrison made beautiful music together on Saturday evening, attending the one-year anniversary of Jason Scoppa's Bardot Sessions in Hollywood.

Following dinner with mutual friend and actress Joanna Garcia at West Hollywood's Soho House, the three sat in Corzo tequila's VIP section for the Bardot Sessions show. Diaz and Garcia sipped cocktails and danced as Macy Gray and singer LP performed.

Gene Simmons and his wife chatted with Scoppa before the Kiss frontman's musical spawn Nick took the stage to sing Iggy Pop's "The Passenger."

Following the set, Diaz, Garcia and Morrison retreated to Bardot's upstairs lounge, where they danced into the night, according to partygoers.

PREACH IT! Good signs from Reese Witherspoon and Angelina Jolie

Reese-witherspoon We’ve been grooving over the paparazzi pics of sunny Reese Witherspoon signing a fan’s shirt. With so many bad celebrity stories emerging this summer -- Mel Gibson, Lindsay Lohan -- the pics are a welcome respite.

According to Autograph magazine, Witherspoon is one of the A-list women best known for accommodating autograph-seeking fans and professional signature collectors.

"Sweet lady, good signer," says the magazine’s Steve Cyrkin. “Reese is as unaffected by fame as she is beautiful, and loves her fans.”

Of course, not all celebrities are so gracious to the fans who made them rich and famous.

"Demi Moore," Cyrkin dishes. "Bad signer, bad attitude. Treats fans like they're ghosts. She completely ignores them as if they're not there."

Other "bad signers" include Cameron Diaz and Barbra Streisand.

Diaz is "incredibly hard to get an autograph from," Cyrkin explains, "but at least she's usually nice enough to tell you she won't sign."

Not so Streisand.

"She's known to be rude and demeaning in public and very rarely signs," Cyrkin says. "I don't ...

Cameron Diaz named the most dangerous celeb on the Internet

51418313 Who knew that loving Cameron Diaz could be so risky? Turns out that searching the Web for the bubbly blond star comes with this year's highest chance of encountering corrupt sites and malicious software.

Searching for "Cameron Diaz" brings bad news — in the form of risky sites — in one of every 10 search results, according to McAfee's Most Dangerous Celebrities study. Make the search terms "Cameron Diaz" and "screensavers," and that 10% chance of danger almost doubles. The "Knight and Day" star replaces last year's No. 1, Jessica Biel.

"Cybercriminals follow the same hot topics as consumers and create traps based on the latest trends," said McAfee security sleuth Dave Marcus. Viruses and malware, often designed to steal personal information, lie in wait for users who download photos, videos or screensavers from malicious sites.

Rounding out the list, in descending order: Julia Roberts, Biel in third place, Gisele Bundchen, Brad Pitt, model Adriana Lima, Jennifer Love Hewitt and Nicole Kidman in a tie (likely the only time Love Hewitt will share a title with Kidman), Tom Cruise, Heidi Klum and Penelope Cruz in a tie, and Anna Paquin.

Want to keep your risk low? Keep those searches slightly less sexy — McAfee says President Barack Obama and Sarah Palin are among the safest search names around.

Sandra Bullock is Hollywood's highest-paid actress -- and about that Gulf Coast PSA ... [poll]

Sandra Bullock and Scarlett Johansson Sandra Bullock is currently the highest-paid actress in Hollywood, having pulled in $56 million between June 2009 and June 2010, Forbes reports.

Tens of millions of dollars away in second place, it was a tie: Reese Witherspoon and Cameron Diaz each earned about $32 million for the year. Jennifer Aniston came in fourth at $27 million, and Sarah Jessica Parker notched in fifth at $25 million. 

Bullock pulled in the bucks largely from "The Proposal" and "The Blind Side." On the latter, she cut her asking price, earned an Oscar and took home a sizable chunk of the $320-million box-office take, according to Forbes.

In other Bullock-related news, Women of the Storm responded Saturday to a blogger's allegations ...

Forget sexy. Cameron Diaz is bringing sex back.

Vogue-cover Finally! The coveted secret is out on how Cameron Diaz manages to maintain those gazelle-like legs and that red carpet-ready glow. 

Get out the pad and paper. Are you ready? It's one word, three letters: Sex!

Do you hear that? It’s the sound of people everywhere canceling their gym memberships!

The 37-year-old actress tells British Vogue in its July issue, "The fountain of youth [for me], let's see.... I guess it's exercise, healthy diet, lots of water, lots of laughter, lots of sex -- yes, sex, we need that as human beings. It's healthy, it's natural, it's what we are here to do!"

But that’s not to say she’s totally against plastic surgery if time doesn’t take kindly to her features: “I'm not doing anything right now," she tells the mag. "But we'll see. So far, so good. But I'll never say never to anything."

Though she’s not shy when it comes to sex, she’s less forthcoming when it comes to dishing on her love life. The “Knight and Day” star was tight-lipped when it came to mentioning rumored beau Yankees Alex Rodriguez. When asked if she’s in love, she coyly replied: "You know what? Yes I am. I'm in love with life." 

Oh, Cameron! You're such a tease!

The essence of Cameron Diaz and Mike Myers in the fashion editorial you never saw coming [pics]

Give it some thought: The cast of the animated franchise "Shrek" lends itself to a sultry fashion editorial -- think: Cameron Diaz and Antonio Banderas, Eddie Murphy and new addition Jon Hamm; even Mike Myers, with the help of the right stylist.

Lo and behold, V Man magazine concurs. The catch: The spread features the cartoon counterparts of the boldface bunch. The animated characters of "Shrek" have been given the glossy treatment, including the eponymous green ogre, his bride Princess Fiona and Banderas' Puss in Boots.

The spread hypes the May 21 release of the final Shrek film, "Shrek Forever After." Keep going after the jump for more pics, including Diaz's Fiona getting down with her babies in the Standard's cocktail lounge, and Puss in Boots being hand-fed grapes by a young rocker type.

Super Bowl XLIV party report: Cameron Diaz, Chace Crawford, Michael Bay and the Black Eyed Peas

Fergie Superbowl2 It's doubtful that anyone partied as hard last night as the New Orleans Saints, celebrating their Super Bowl win. That doesn't mean a host of Hollywood stars didn't give them a run for their money all weekend.

Miami was overflowing with A-list talent, prepping for the big game at beachfront hot spots and private mansions alike.

Talent agency CAA invited an embarrassment of bold-face names to its Saturday bash at the W Hotel South Beach. Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, Cameron Diaz, Derek Jeter, Carrie Underwood, Chris Rock, Jessica Alba, Alex Rodriguez and Hilary Swank stopped by.

The sprawling Florida home of "Transformers" director Michael Bay was the site of the Giving Back Fund and Dewar's Signature's charity soiree the same night. "Gossip Girl" hunks Chace Crawford and Ed Westwick attended, as well as Westwick's main squeeze, Jessica Szohr, and mogul Russell Simmons

At the Hotel 944, Snoop Dogg partied in the penthouse after his performance, with Brent Bolthouse and race car driver Jimmie Johnson. The bash even got a visit from Captain Morgan and his scantily clad pirate gals, the Morganettes.

Coincidentally, the Black Eyed Peas had a tour stop in Miami the night before the big game. They celebrated their performance with tour sponsor Bacardi and Playboy magazine. Onstage, Josh Duhamel's bride Fergie encouraged the crowd to "do the fist pump," in honor of her fave guilty pleasure, "Jersey Shore."

More Globes parties: Nicole Kidman, Kate Hudson, Taylor Lautner and a host of other stars drop by

Nicole With the number of Golden Globe bashes in the double digits this year, Sunday night's party attendance was a healthy mix of stars saluting their studios and showing face practically everywhere.

By far the best get-together on site at the Beverly Hilton was thrown by the Weinstein Co. in a secluded space at the southeast corner of the hotel. Honcho Harvey Weinstein served sushi and Champagne in honor of his heavily nominated films "Nine," "Inglourious Basterds" and "A Single Man."

Quail eggs and sticky rice were the spread, but the A-list names in attendance were the real buffet. Here's how the seating arrangements went down:

At the busiest table sat a lounging Kate Hudson, chatting with Fergie and hubby Josh Duhamel. Behind her Rob Marshall shared conversation with Daniel Day Lewis, next to Tom Ford interacting with his directorial debut muse Julianne Moore.

Quentin Tarantino took up residence one booth over with several ladies, while his "Basterds" actor Eli Roth shared a California roll with Diane Kruger. Nearby, her main squeeze, Joshua Jackson, spoke with "Up in the Air" star Anna Kendrickabout "Basterds" star Christoph Waltz's big win for best supporting actor.

Nicole Kidman sat a few feet away from the crunch of industry types and admirers ...

Hollywood Walk of Fame

The turkey was delicious, the mashed potatoes rich and creamy, and that pumpkin pie -- well, nobody threw it at Grandma, even after she decided to tell everyone they needed a haircut.

So it's Friday, and you're facing the brutal truth: The relatives aren't going home any time soon.
