Jessica Biel grills Orlando Bloom, Miranda Kerr on having a baby

Jessica Biel at the Golden Globes

Jessica Biel might be keeping mum on her maybe-engagement to Justin Timberlake, but she's not shy when it comes to her curiosity about other folks' families.

At Sunday's Golden Globes, the actress was queued up at arrivals behind Orlando Bloom and Miranda Kerr and seized the opportunity to quiz them about being first-time parents.

"Is it just the most amazing experience?" she asked.

Kerr confirmed that it in fact was, saying, "Every day it just gets better."

Bloom interjected that their little guy Flynn, who was born last January, is quite mischievous and keeps the pair plenty entertained.

Getting back to Biel — Timberlake reportedly popped the question to her over the holidays. Is the alleged bride-to-be thinking about babies already?

Golden Globes: Charlize Theron, Tilda Swinton toast performances

In the penthouse of the Chateau Marmont -- where the routine performances are those of service, fame and occasionally CPR -- W magazine toasted its Best Performances issue just ahead of Sunday's Golden Globes telecast.

With the luminous faces of Charlize Theron and Brad Pitt (the issue's cover stars) adorning the walls, crowds of movie stars, directors and executives floated over Sunset Boulevard mingling with each other and editor in chief Stefano Tonchi.

Theron rocked a lacy black dress and chatted up her "Snow White and the Huntsman" costar Chris Hemsworth -- who sported his "Avengers" platinum blond hair beside wife Elsa Pataky.

Tilda Swinton, rather stunning in a tapered white suit, greeted Tom Cruise, Viola Davis, Patrick Stewart and Jared Leto while monitors played clips of 2011's busiest thespians, including Carey Mulligan.

Orlando Bloom and Miranda Kerr roamed hand-in-hand, Bloom stopping to embrace "Elizabethtown" costar Kirsten Dunst and English breakout actor Benedict Cumberbatch.

Jessica Biel, rumored to be engaged to Justin Timberlake, showed with an empty ring finger but a stunning floor-length sequin gown. She stuck close to a female pal and shared some laughs and a few glasses of Dom Perignon with Kate and Laura Mulleavy, the design duo behind label Rodarte.

Victoria's Secret fashion show: Hot hotties in lingerie? Heaven!

Miranda Kerr in the Victoria's Secret fashion show

Heaven was missing quite a few angels as the gorgeous creatures of Victoria's Secret, Miranda Kerr among them, were spotted on the runway during the line's annual televised fashion show Tuesday.

And as it turns out, shocking shock, people still like watching really beautiful, scantily clad women walk long distances in high heels while accompanied by popular music -- and the special netted huge ratings for network CBS.

A few reasons to watch, in addition to the whole scantily clad thing: Miranda Kerr, above, was cheered on by baby daddy Orlando Bloom, Ministry boyfriend Joe Manganiello sat front-row with his "Magic Mike" co-star Alex Pettyfer, and Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine wrapped his inked-up arms around girlfriend Anne Vyalitsyna.

The Angels, with musical assistance from Levine, Jay-Z and Kanye West, clocked 10.3 million viewers, Show Tracker reported, up 15% over last year with a 35% gain in the all-important demographic of viewers 18-49, a.k.a. the "me like, me want, me buy" crowd.

While the actual event taped weeks ago, Kerr and fellow Victoria model Alessandra Ambrosio hit up South Coast Plaza in Costa Mesa for an official viewing party Tuesday night, cheering on their lingerie-clad peers.

Orlando Bloom to return as Legolas in 'The Hobbit' films

Orlando Bloom cast in 'The Hobbit'
Orlando Bloom
is officially heading back to Middle-earth to reprise his role as hot elf Legolas in the "Hobbit" films -- the prequel to "The Lord of the Rings" trilogy.

Orlando Bloom as LegolasThe film's producer and director Peter Jackson wrote on his Facebook page Friday: "I'm thrilled to be working with Orlando again. Funny thing is, I look older -- and he doesn't! I guess that's why he makes such a wonderful elf."

Recently, Bloom has been playing the role of new dad with wife and Victoria's Secret model Miranda Kerr.

The British actor will join Elijah Wood, Martin Freeman, Andy Serkis, Cate Blanchett and Ian McKellen in the much-anticipated prequel to "The Lord of the Rings" story that  takes place 60 years before J.R.R. Tolkien's epic trilogy. British thespian Stephen Fry was added to the cast last week as Master of Laketown.

Shooting for the two 3-D films began in mid-March in New Zealand and will hit theaters in late 2012 and 2013, according to Variety.

Bloom recently read Shakespearean passages at a Los Angeles Philharmonic performance and was noticeably absent from the most recent installment of "The Pirates of the Caribbean."

But expect to see quite a bit more of him in the coming year. Bloom will star as the Duke of Buckingham in October in Paul W.S. Anderson's "The Three Musketeers," which also stars Logan Lerman, Matthew Macfadyen, Ray Stevenson, Milla Jovovich, Christoph Waltz and Juno Temple.

After Miranda Kerr and Rachel Zoe, the pressure's on Kate Hudson to lose that baby fat already, would ya?

KerrKate Hudson is expecting! Evangeline Lilly has a bun in the oven! Mariah Carey is pregnant with just the precious-est twins ever!

Uh, yay?

Preach It! has never managed to summon the proper amount of glee when a star gets knocked up. We get it: We’re the celebrity gossip media; we’re supposed to go squee! and trot out phrases like “baby bumpin’!” and “baby joy!” and run photos of “beautifully pregnant” and “glowing” starlets shopping for tiny clothes at boutiques no one else can afford.

But maybe we’re less than enthused because of what’s happening -- with increasing speed -- after these kids arrive. We speak, of course, of mommy’s weight loss. The media tend to use the cutesy phrase “body after baby” -- the impossible size-2-to-0 figure that starlets are expected to reclaim in less time than it takes for a Gabor to drop a fur coat onto a divan.

Usually, we’re talking a pretty tight weight-loss window: A few months, perhaps. Miranda Kerr, for example, is looking pretty much the way she used to after four months of motherhood.

But that “body after baby” time frame appears to be, well, shrinking. After initially lying about her pregnant state, celebu-stylist Rachel Zoe eventually gave birth to a boy last month. Fast-forward three weeks, and Zoe is padding around Los Angeles looking as scrawny as she was in her heyday. How do we know? Because of the headlines, of course.

“Rachel Zoe Shows Off Her Post-Baby Body,” SocialiteLife simpered.

“Rachel Zoe is skinny again,” is how Hollyscoop put it.

And, per the stiffer upper lips of Britain’s Daily Mail: “Rachel Zoe regains her slender form just three weeks after giving birth.” 

At this rate, we’ll be demanding that Hudson drop her weight before she even pops out that baby.

Forgive us if we fail to squee.

Orlando Bloom reading from 'Romeo and Juliet' for L.A. Phil

Orlando Bloom in 'Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End' Orlando Bloom is brushing up on his Shakespeare for upcoming concerts with the Los Angeles Philharmonic.

Bloom has some spare time, it seems, since he won't be starring with Johnny Depp and Penelope Cruz in the next installment of "Pirates of the Caribbean" this May. No, we're still not over that.

We miss his period pieces and costume dramas (think "Lord of the Rings," "Kingdom of Heaven," "Troy"), but perhaps a little bit of Shakespeare will keep us from extreme Bloom withdrawal. We imagine he's been busy being a papa to baby boy Flynn with supermodel wife Miranda Kerr. Oh, to be blessed with all those gorgeous genes.

The reporter doth swoon too much, methinks.

Anyway, our friends at Culture Monster inform us that Bloom will perform selections from "Romeo and Juliet" between musical numbers in the series, which features Tchaikovsky's Shakespeare-inspired music led by wild-haired conductor Gustavo Dudamel. All we have to say about that: He'd better be Romeo.

"Brothers & Sisters" cast member Matthew Rhys will read from "Hamlet," and veteran actor Malcolm McDowell will recite from "The Tempest." Actress Kate Burton will serve as stage director and host. The concerts are March 10-13 at Walt Disney Concert Hall, with the March 13 concert to be broadcast live to cinemas across the U.S. and Canada.

(We miss you, Orlando!!!)

Costume Designers Guild Awards: Grace notes, with Halle Berry, Demi Moore, Diane Lane

Halle Berry at the CDG Awards The red carpet can be a fashion war zone, but when it comes to the big and small screen, dressing is an art — as evidenced at the 13th Annual Costume Designers Guild Awards on  Tuesday night in Beverly Hills.

Costume Designers Guild Awards pictures  

Costume designers and their glamorous celebrity fans packed the Beverly Hilton, where eyes were drawn to Demi Moore in a simple but chic Vivienne Westwood blue creation. Husband Ashton Kutcher was the perfect escort, on hand to introduce a reel highlighting the career of Julie Weiss, who nabbed the Disaronno Award for career achievement.

The prize was presented to Weiss ("American Beauty," "No Strings Attached") by A-listers Robert Duvall, Billy Bob Thornton and Diane Lane, looking Old Hollywood and sporting a serious hair tuck.  Demi Moore at the CDG Awards

While Weiss got the biggest accolade, Halle Berry stole the show in a brilliant red Elie Saab gown, receiving the Lacoste Spotlight Award, presented by Samuel L. Jackson.

Despite some Rodarte drama, a gracious Amy Wescott nabbed the trophy for excellence in contemporary film for "Black Swan," while "Glee" got a nod for its duds courtesy of costume designer Lou Eyrich. Click the pic of Westcott and Kristin Davis, above, for more photos from the event.

The Ministry must admit a minor obsession with fashion host Louise Roe, a knockout in a psychedelic constructed print dress from Manish Arora, who was herself excited over sightings that included Ginnifer Goodwin, Claire Danes and a still-stunning Holland Taylor.

Representing the boys were "White Collar" cutie Matt Bomer, "The Twilight Saga" star Kellan Lutz, Bill Maher and Old Spice's resident gentleman Isaiah Mustafa

Check out our sister blog All the Rage's assessment of the evening, and leave your thoughts on the CDG Awards in comments.

Sara Rue sheds before she weds and makes a show of it

Sara Rue Sara Rue -- you may remember her from "Popular," "Less Than Perfect" and, most recently, a brief stint on ABC's "Eastwick." But the former Jenny Craig spokeswoman will be back in prime time Wednesday night hosting "Shedding for the Wedding," a reality show on the CW about engaged couples competing to lose weight before their big day.

The couple who lose the most weight win their dream wedding. The 33-year-old actress-turned-host may know a thing or two about that, since she lost 50 pounds for her upcoming May nuptials to teacher Kevin Prince.

"It's nice to not have that be a stressful thing," she told People about the weight loss, which she pulled off with the help of a certain Miss Craig. "Planning a wedding can be stressful enough, and I'm glad I don't have that to worry about."

Perhaps she's not only serving as host but also as a real-life inspiration to the nine competing couples -- though Los Angeles Times TV critic Robert Lloyd maintains that Rue is overqualified for the hosting gig. 

Still, we think "Shedding for the Wedding" is a bit more sobering than E!'s dreadful "Bridalplasty." At least Rue's show talks about health -- though we're now wondering if she's addicted to losing weight.

"I do my maintenance by exercising and watching what I eat, but of course I may want to lose a little bit more just so I look and feel great in my wedding dress," Rue said. "On my honeymoon, I want to be able to flounce around in tiny shorts and a bikini top. That would be ideal."

Watch one of Rue's Jenny Craig commercials -- pure advertisement but cute -- below. And catch her on the show at 9 p.m. on the CW. We'll be watching with a tub of ice cream in hand.

Miranda Kerr, Orlando Bloom have a baby son

Miranda Kerr and Orlando Bloom have a baby son Miranda Kerr and hubby Orlando Bloom welcomed a baby boy on Thursday in Los Angeles, according to multiple media reports.

The child is the first for the couple, who said "I do" in July after getting engaged in June. News that she was pregnant emerged shortly after the wedding, with a source telling Us Magazine at the time, "She poses in lingerie. It will be obvious soon enough."

The Victoria's Secret model and "Pirates of the Caribbean" actor have been together for more than three years.

The baby weighed almost 10 pounds, according to a Radar Online source. X17 was first with the news, after a photographer overheard Bloom talking about "my son."
