Star sightings: Tom Brady tackles a charity gig, Reese Witherspoon has a day date

June 8, 2010 |  5:14 pm

Tom brady audi Should it come as a surprise that Tom Brady loves athletic ladies? That's what the football hunk was overheard telling pals over the weekend in Hyannis Port, Mass. 

Brady served as honorary chairman at the Audi Best Buddies Challenge, a weekend of charitable events to benefit development and intellectual disabilities. Established by Anthony Kennedy Shriver in 1989, the weekend event raised $4.2 million -- bringing the total to more than $30 million since Audi climbed on board in 2007.

But back to Brady's ideal woman -- who is, conveniently, his wife Gisele Bundchen.

While lauding her ability to "kick some butt," according to an onlooker, Brady did just that in a game of flag football -- he served as quarterback for both Team Audi and competitors Team Country Kitchen.

Another kick-butt babe, Ali Larter, was spotted in Washington, D.C., on Monday evening -- fresh off her MTV Movie Awards win for best fight with Beyonce in "Obsessed."

Larter attended the Women Deliver 2010 conference, in support of the United Nations Foundation. With her mother in tow, Larter took in a speeches from Hillary Rodham Clinton and Melinda Gates on promoting maternal health. 

Other activist femmes at the conference included Ashley Judd, Christy Turlington and Arianna Huffington.

Speaking of maternal instincts, Reese Witherspoon took her daughter Eva to the 4th Annual Kidstock, a music and arts festival held at L.A.'s Greystone Mansion. With her agent-beau Jim Toth in tow, the three enjoyed activities such as necklace-making, silk-screening Ugg boots and decorating their own Crumbs cupcakes.

Cake was traded for more adult fare at the weekend birthday of...

... Disney's "Sonny With a Chance" star Brandon Mychal Smith. Turning 21, the actor hosted pals on a luxury yacht in Long Beach. Pals like fellow teen stars Dylan and Cole Sprouse kept entertained with interactive game DJ Hero.

Preferring a live show last week was former Pussycat Doll Jessica Sutta. The singer and dancer hit up a show by Tomorrow's Bad Seeds at the Roxy in West Hollywood.
