Sweetheart sightings: Stars celebrate Valentine's Day [updated]

February 14, 2010 |  8:09 am

Julia roberts We at the Ministry can't help but notice that love is in the air here in Hollywood and beyond. Power couples and celeb singles have been prepping for Cupid's big day for more a week.

Heart-shaped arrows are flying for Sandra Bullock, Julia Roberts, the "Twilight" gang and more in our V-Day sightings.

Roberts, a member of Garry Marshall's authoritative love ensemble for "Valentine's Day," showed her cinematographer hubby Danny Moder full support in Southern California this week. The A-lister turned up to the Santa Barbara International Film Festival to celebrate Moder's new flick "180° South." 

In tow with Emile Hirsch, the couple toasted the documentary's subjects Yvon Chouinard and Doug Tompkins, founders of eco-clothing companies Patagonia and the North Face, respectively. 

[Updated, 12:30 p.m.: Actress Amy Adams has several Valentines to send this year, to her fiance Darren Le Gallo and the baby they're expecting later this year.

It seems Amy's brother Eddie Adams got the best early Valentine, however. Pregnant sis turned up to party at his Bardot Hollywood birthday celebration Saturday. There for the Lo Hi Fi party, Adams couldn't partake in all the delights, but an onlooker tells me she was up and dancing with pals.]

Sandra bullock2Meanwhile, farther south in Southern California, this year's awards darling Sandra Bullock was spotting walking with her beloved -- her adorable mixed pooch, that is. The actress, sans husband Jesse James, looked cute and casual in a JunkFood Charlie Brown "Why Me?" tee.

On Saturday, former "Spiderman" star Tobey Maguire was spotted at LAX, with his kids and wife Jennifer Meyer. Also taking to the skies? Liv Tyler and her bambino Milo.

Want to treat yourself like a star on Valentine's Day? Here are some tips

Luxuriate: Get pampered as a couple, or as a well-deserving single. Beverly Hills salon Gavert Atelier is offering a shiatsu shampoo for two, at $35 a pop, a favorite of "Twilight" human Christian Serratos

Drink to love: Nothing like a little social lubricant to make your V-Day special. Spirit house TY KU has an adorable recipe -- 1.5 ounces of its sake and some cinnamon hearts to create a "Burning Love" specialty cocktail.
