Kristen Stewart turns 22 with RPattz, Charlize Theron video card

Kristen Stewart turns 22
Kristen Stewart cleaned up on her 22nd birthday, from quality time with Robert Pattinson to some via-satellite love from Charlize Theron and Chris Hemsworth. 

As Stewart, she of "The Twilight Saga" fame, turned one year past that of legal drinking age in the U.S., it was fitting she enjoyed a low key celebration in a Hollywood bar, her on-screen vampire beau beside her.

At nightspot Harvard & Stone, the couple enjoyed cocktails in intimate upper-level seating, according to E! News.

"They were having lots of drinks on the top floor of the bar and seemed to be having fun," a source claimed. 

Joined by friends, Pattinson and Stewart took interest in some dancing ladies flanking the space as "the bar had a burlesque show which took place every 30 minutes and they were watching that." 

We, on the other hand, can't stop watching Stewart's evil queen. Charlize Theron, the serial-killing monarch in "Snow White and the Huntsman," wished KStew a happy birthday via YouTube. Check out Charlize's video card and a second clip from "Huntsman" Chris Hemsworth below.

Betty White's 90th birthday special gets several celebrity guests
Betty White, everyone's biggest senior sweetheart, is commanding plenty of star power for her upcoming 90th birthday special — including current Broadway force Hugh Jackman and legendary funny lady Carol Burnett.

On Jan. 16, NBC plans to air "Betty White's 90th Birthday: A Tribute to America's Golden Girl," with celebrity testimonials, musical performances and a look at White's long career.

Jackman and Burnett are slated to stop by, says TV Guide, as well Mary Tyler Moore and Ed Asner, White's costars from the classic "Mary Tyler Moore Show." NBC family member Amy Poehler will pop in, as will Joel McHale — White's costar for her stint on the network's "Community."

The special won't be all nostalgia, as it reportedly boasts a first look at White's new hidden-camera comedy project targeting the elderly, "Off Their Rockers."

Nicole Richie's 30th birthday: 'Classy with a K, but classy!'

Nicole Richie and Joel Madden celebrate her 30th

Nicole Richie turned 30 on Wednesday, celebrating a new decade with her better half, friends and family in Beverly Hills.

Richie and her party took over the Royal Suite at the swanky Beverly Wilshire for a grown-and-sexy fete with no particular theme. 

"To me, this most important thing is that my friends just come and have a good time, nothing too forced," Richie told us while getting ready, husband Joel Madden at her side. 

In sparkly vintage red mini and spiked Louboutins, Richie received pals including Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, father Lionel Richie, Mindy Kalling, Samantha Ronson and Quincy Jones.

RichieBday2 We pointed out that the Regent was quite an adult venue for someone just crossing the threshhold into her 30s, and she agreed: "I am so classy! Classy with a K, but classy. I'm almost there with the C."

Jokes aside, Richie opened up about her journey from reality-show wild child to married mother of two. 

"If life was about one lesson, we'd all be perfect. But it's not," she said. "I try to learn lessons every day. Life is about waking up and going out there and being the best version of you."

Her morning and afternoon were spent with daughter Harlow, 3, and son Sparrow, who celebrated his second birthday Sept. 9.

"Their life doesn't stop when it's my birthday. They have school and ballet and this and that. I was just a mom, which I'm totally happy being," she said, "My son just had his birthday, and they just don't care. They're birthdayed out! We just had the cake and the song and the whole bit." 

Richie did enjoy some tiny spoils, however, such as a tiered birthday cake with gold detail, a dance-off in the suite led by emcee Ronson and the obligatory playing of her dad's hit "All Night Long."

A video montage was projected starring her kids and close ones, and the Winter Kate designer did land one exclusive gift — the unreleased Samsung Galaxy SII, which she used to snap pics of her guests throughout the evening.

"I'm so excited about this new chapter in my life and so ready for something new," Richie said. "So many of my girlfriends say that your 30s are the best. I couldn't be more ready."

Jennifer Lopez celebrates 42nd birthday with dinner in Miami

Jennifer Lopez

Jennifer Lopez kept things simple and sweet for her 42nd birthday, enjoying a luxurious dinner for 16 close friends and family in Miami.

Lopez's mother, Guadalupe, her manager, her stylist and one of her sisters were among those who gathered at the Hotel Fontainbleau on Saturday, hitting Scott Conant's celeb-friendly eatery Scarpetta for foie gras ravioli and polenta.

"Jennifer looked radiant in a purple and silver evening dress," a source told People, "and when they brought out her birthday cake after the meal, she began to sing. She was very happy ... they closed down the restaurant."

Obviously missing from the group was Marc Anthony, Lopez's recently estranged husband. The pair caused a stir only 10 days ago, announcing that they had mutually agreed to end their seven-year marriage.

Prior to the birthday dinner, Lopez indulged in some retail therapy in the swanky Bal Harbour shopping district, scoring outfits for her twins Max and Emme from Bonpoint.

Lopez turned 42 on Sunday.

Justin Bieber scores big laughs at manager's 30th birthday roast

Justin Bieber poses with manager Scooter Braun Justin Bieber may be closing in on triple-threat territory sooner than we think: the 17-year-old got big laughs roasting his manager Scooter Braun on Saturday.

At Hollywood's Music Box theater, Bieber joined his mentor Usher for an exclusive 30th birthday roast of Braun, credited with discovering the music phenomenon in 2008.

"Justin did an impersonation of Scooter negotiating a deal on the phone," a partygoer tells the Ministry. "He had everyone in stitches. He was pretending Scooter was setting up a sequel to 'Never Say Never.'"

"My name has to be on the poster," Bieber demanded in his bit about Braun. "... and we're calling it 'Never Say Never Ever.'"

The film, a 3-D concert flick that charts Bieber's  rise to fame, netted almost $75 million in domestic box office and further solidified Bieber Fever. 

Adam Levine belts out a tune at Scooter Braun's birthday Following the jab-fest, emceed by Usher, a party ensued that naturally featured the talents of Braun's clients and friends.

Bieber was joined onstage by Jaden Smith, son of Will and Jada, and the duo belted their hit "Never Say Never," followed by Bieber's single "Baby." It didn't take long for Usher to offer up "OMG" and "DJ Got Us Fallin' in Love." 

Bieber surprised Braun by booking MC Hammer to throw down tracks like "Too Legit to Quit." Braun's pal and "The Voice" judge Adam Levine got inspired to climb up on stage and sing the Maroon 5 hit  "This Love" -- pulling Braun up with him and making him dance. Asher Roth, another Braun client, performed his single "I Love College."

Celeb revelers included basketballer Jay Williams, singer Mary J. Blige with husband Kendu Isaacs, Rita Wilson with son Chester (or Chet, as his hip-hop persona is called), Madonna's manager Guy Oseary and reality personality Kim Kardashian.

David Arquette helps Habitat for Humanity -- before celebrating Coco's birthday

David Arquette helping at Habitat for Humanity

David Arquette may have given daughter Coco the best gift for her recent birthday -- leading by example.

Arquette showed up Friday at Lowe's Burbank for Habitat for Humanity's Build-A-Thon, an eight-day project to build eight homes with the assistance of the Hollywood community.

Arquette turned up on the dot at 8 a.m., an onlooker tells us, donned a hard hat and got to work amid the drizzly Southern California weather.

Though Coco, Arquette's daughter with Courteney Cox, had turned 7 on Monday, Arquette put down his power drill early to celebrate Friday. He apologized for leaving, but we're told no one faulted him for heading out to spend time with his little one.

Though his birthday fell on Friday, Thursday evening saw the star gathered with some pals and girlfriend Elisabetta Canalis for eats at Beverly Hills' Mr. Chow. His inner sanctum was thwarted, however, by none other than Jackie Collins and Kirstie Alley.

Both ladies tweeted their excitement over seeing Clooney, as well as former television duo Ray Romano and Brad Garrett.

Heavy on the exclamation marks, Alley tweeted, "Jeez... I'm having dinner and I swear this is the most star studded restaurant I've ever been in!!... Impressive!!!"

The "Dancing With the Stars" diva may not have divulged the identity of Clooney and his party at that moment, but Jackie picked up the baton.

Collins, dining with Kathy Griffin, offered "Fun dinner at CHOWS. with Kathy Griffin. Spotted George Clooney & beautiful gf Elizabetta. Also Kirsti Alley looking major svelte."

Collins pointed out that Alley was dining with John Travolta's wife Kelly Preston.

Happy Birthday, George.

Elizabeth Banks welcomes baby boy Felix with husband Max Handelman

Elizabeth Banks welcomes baby boy Felix "30 Rock's" Elizabeth Banks and husband Max Handelman are welcoming their baby boy, Felix, to the world via surrogate, she announced Wednesday.

"The one true hurdle I've faced in life is that I have a broken belly. After years of trying to get pregnant, exploring the range of fertility treatments, all unsuccessful, our journey led us to gestational surrogacy: we make a 'baby cake' and bake it in another woman's 'oven,' " Banks wrote on her blog.

Banks, 37, said "two miracles" came of the process that ultimately yielded her son.

"Felix means 'happy' and 'lucky' in Latin. And true to his name, Felix is a very happy baby and a blessing on our life," she wrote.

The actress was congratulated by the Twittersphere, including celebrities Busy Phillips and Rainn Wilson, who congratulated her via tweets.

"What's greater than overjoyed? Megajoyed? Add humility, love, awe. Sprinkle w cute. Result: my new life as a mom. It's a boy!" she added on Twitter.

In 2012, Banks is set to appear with Sam Worthington, Ed Harris and Kyra Sedgwick in Asger Leth's action adventure "Man on a Ledge."

She'll also be co-directing and starring in "Movie 43," a film of short comedies that includes Gerard Butler, Kate Winslet, Kristen Bell, Hugh Jackman, Kate Bosworth, Uma Thurman, Justin Long, Josh Duhamel, Seann William Scott and Richard Gere, to name a few.

For now, though, Banks said, "If you need me, I'll be changing dirty diapers and trying to get some sleep."
