But with a movie ticket costing more than $20 in some venues, it's important to choose wisely and, if you're taking the whole family, make sure you pick something suitable.

ScarJo and Ryan has split

It's the Hollywood break-up nobody is really sad to hear - major hotties Scarlett Johansson and Ryan Reynolds are back on the market after two years of marriage. "After long and careful consideration on both our parts, we've decided to end our marriage," the couple said in a statement. "We entered our relationship with love and it's with love and kindness we leave it. While privacy isn't expected, it's certainly appreciated," they said. Whispers suggest Scarlett was the one who wanted the break, after things got tense due to the massive amounts of time the pair spent apart thanks to their acting careers.It's been a massive week for break-ups - ScarJo and Ryan's split comes hot on the heels of a few other kaput couples. Aussie glamour pair Megan Gale and Andy Lee have called off their four-year relationship, and Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens pulled the plug after three years together.

Just sounds like a lot of break up going around. What do you say? Please Comment.

Midnight Boys Bike Club For Hollywood Stars

Celebrity pals Tom Cruise and David Beckham have reportedly started an exclusive bikers club for Hollywood stars in LA. A source told the Sunday Mirror, "The boys love to ride. They're out as often as they can and Becks has really learnt how to ride from Tom. At midnight they can get away with cruising around in a group and seeing the sights of LA without a zillion paparazzi chasing them around. It works for them and they've had so much fun doing it so far. They are trying to get other Hollywood actors like Orlando Bloom and Brad Pitt to join the group too. It's a case of the more people the better."

Good luck avoiding the paparazzi boys! Somehow we don't think they'd mind working late to get those snaps.

Tom's face lift

Tom Cruise has been caught in the act of stealing his wife's make up. According to reports, Cruise, 48, is freaking out about getting old and has resorted to pillaging wife Katie Holmes' beauty supplies. On his pilfer list there was foundation, cleanser, moisturiser and mascara. ''Tom is incredibly vain and he is willing to go to great lengths to look good next to his younger co-stars,'' an insider told the National Enquiter.

That's all well and good but get your own make up please!

Smith's family on the red carpet

Willow and Jaden Smith already strike poses on the red carpet like a couple of seasoned showbiz professionals and they haven't even hit their teenage years yet but they have already became small stars. Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith's two kids have been close to the spotlight for years, but in the last few months they've both suddenly shot to stardom with 12-year-old Jaden starring in a remake of The Karate Kid and 10-year-old Willow releasing her first single Whip My Hair. But some critics say it's all too much, too soon.

"Will and Jada expect only the best from their children, there is very little room for failure. They’re a very competitive, high-performing family," a friend tells the Daily Mail. "It’s almost like the kids have never known what it’s really like to be a child. They were launched straight into the limelight. A lot of their friends think it is way too much too soon."

The whole family joined Jaden in China while he was filming The Karate Kid this year, and dad Will admits there were times when he and his wife argued over whether or not their son needed to take a break.

Well I think they need a break as they are just kids. What do u think? Please Comment.

Megamind Premiere

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie go public with their affection at the premiere of Megamind in Paris. Brad who voices metro man in the animated flick, and his real life leading lady also took a break from official duties while in the french capital to treat son Pax to a hot air balloon ride for his birthday.

Julia Roberts's smile worth 1.6 million

The Oscar winning actress been paid more than a whopping $1.6 million for a 45-second coffee commercial where she doesn't even speak. The Oscar winner filmed the spot in Rome earlier this month for Lavazza, an Italian coffee brand, the Daily Mail newspaper in the UK reports.

In the advertisement, Roberts appears as the goddess Venus, with an actor playing famed painter Sandro Botticelli, who is unhappy his subject won't smile. But when Roberts takes a sip of espresso, she can't help but smile her famous toothy grin.

Sure the Italians love a celebrity but they're also pretty picky abouth their coffee beans. Someone who might have more pull is her former Ocean's Eleven co-star George Clooney filmed his own ad - one more than twice as long and filled with humorous dialogue - for Nespresso.

Julia Roberts' movie career arguably has plateaued but her face is obviously still a worldwide seller. Not bad for 45 seconds the work she has given. I think she really does have a million dollar smile. Would you buy a cup of coffee because Julia Roberts smiled at you? Please comment.
