Prince William and Catherine were photographed holding hands on a walk through Holyrood Park the other day looking a little worn out after Zara Phillip’s bender of a wedding. Kate, in particular, seems pretty run down after so many months of non-stop activity. Also, as we all know, the ongoing debate: Face or Body? An aging face, it deflates. Full Story

The Green Lantern was a disappointment for Ryan Reynolds. No one wants the same for his second release this summer. The Change-Up opens on Friday.

I was flipping through photo thumbnails on the database and as I passed these, seeing the baby very quickly, I thought to myself, that really is Orlando Bloom’s face on an infant’s body! The infant, of course, is his son Flynn, with his wife Miranda Kerr, arriving in Sydney, apparently for the first time since Flynn was born. Full Story

Jennifer Lopez spent the weekend in Miami, part of it luxuriating on a yacht in a bikini, ready for the next after formally announcing her divorce from Marc Anthony. It's freedom. And relief.

So I posted these photos of Jennifer Aniston – click here to see - yesterday from the Horrible Bosses premiere in London intending to show you the shoes.

It’s just one photo, one face, but I like it for the purpose of this story. Jennifer Garner at the BAFTA Gala to meet Will & Kate and, well, Jennifer Lopez AND Blake Lively were also there.
