It's hard to outshine a few of the hottest men in Britain, but Helen Mirren found a way. The actress stole the show in London last night when she took home the best actress award at the 59th Evening Standard Theatre Awards for her portrayal of Queen Elizabeth II in The Audience. Helen was quick with the jokes while accepting her award, saying, "I'm dying for a pee, but I didn't have the five minutes to take off my Spanx." She later joined friend Maggie Smith, who won the award for icon of the year, and House of Cards star Kevin Spacey, who took home the editor's award for his contribution to British theater, for a round of shots. She also stole a chance to share a giggle and a glass of wine with the internet's favorite celebrity, Tom Hiddleston, who was working as a presenter at the award show. Other famous faces included Damian Lewis, Jude Law, and Hugh Grant.
Catherine Zeta-Jones put her curves on display in a figure-hugging Maria Lucia Hohan dress and Jerome C. Rousseau heels at the Red 2 premiere in LA last night. She was joined by her costars Helen Mirren, who shared a red carpet kiss with her husband, Taylor Hackford, and Bruce Willis, who managed to avoid any premiere PDA with his wife, Emma Heming Willis, but did shoot her loving glances on the carpet. Mary-Louise Parker and John Malkovich, who also star in Red 2, were also on hand to celebrate the project, which hits theaters today. The entire cast has been busy promoting the movie on late-night talk shows over the past week and Mary-Louise shared a funny story about Bruce when she appeared on Conan on Tuesday. She explained that Bruce managed to take out a bee with his prop gun when the doomed creature was buzzing near just inches from her face during filming. Mary-Louise said, "He shot it dead. Because he's Bruce Willis, so he can shoot a bee, and it's not going to take out part of my nose or something."

Wearing a pale grey dress at tonight's 2013 EE British Academy Film Awards, Helen Mirren rocked the red carpet in a bold pink colour — whoa! Her colourist from John Frieda, Jessie Knight said, "To be honest it was totally Helen’s idea. My brief was ‘let’s do something fun’ so out came the crazy colour which is a really easy way to have temporary but instant fun with your colour. We went for a soft pastel pink which worked really well with Helen’s naturally soft skin tone." The 67 year old may be nominated tonight for a leading lady award in Hitchcock but how do you feel about her blushing new beauty look?

Bradley couldn't escape host Mary Hart, who led the audience in a round of "Happy Birthday" in his honor before he left the stage.

Scarlett Johansson and Jessica Biel attended the NYC premiere of their movie, Hitchcock, last night at the Ziegfeld Theatre. They went for very different looks on the red carpet: Scarlett was edgy in a Rodarte mini, while Jessica went for something a bit more mature in an Oscar de la Renta combo, which she paired with Lorraine Schwartz earrings. Whose Hitchcock premiere look do you prefer? Helen Mirren, meanwhile, donned Dolce&Gabbana.
Jessica and Scarlett posed for photos alongside their costars Toni Collette, Helen Mirren, and Danny Huston after doing a long day of press at the junket together. Jessica joked on Twitter about how the ladies all looked at different photographers during the group shots. She wrote, "Our Hitchcock cast! Clearly no one knew where to look and when . . . " Missing from the fun was Anthony Hopkins, who plays the title role. Anthony Hopkins's Hitchcock impression looked quite good from Hitchcock's trailer, and moviegoers can see it for themselves when the picture arrives in theaters this Friday, Nov. 23.

Morgan's Amistad costar Matthew McConaughey rocked a new look with his handlebar mustache, though his girlfriend, Camila Alves, didn't seem to mind the new facial fuzz. Morgan said a few words about his career and humbly acknowledged one special role in Bruce Almighty. Morgan Freeman said of his AFI honor, "I should be ashamed to say that sooner or later, I knew that someone was going to call on me to play God. I just had to be sure that when I said OK, that it was a comedy."
