Matthew McConaughey rushed to the front door to be the first to greet two-time Tour de France champion Lance Armstrong at a celebration bash thrown by Nike in L.A.

Not content with simply sharing Sunninghill Park, their home outside London, where they live in separate quarters, Sarah Ferguson and her ex-husband, Prince Andrew, now have the same fitness guru. Personal trainer Josh Salzmann, whom the Duchess of York has called her "secret weapon," has been seen in London slipping into Buckingham Palace—where Andrew spends most of the week—to put the prince through his paces. From time to time the royal also works out at Salzmann's gym in Surrey, as does Fergie, who recommended the strapping Salzmann. In fact the ex-couple's sessions occasionally follow one another.
Hot young leading man Heath Ledger is apparently not just a Patriot—he's a swell patron too. A few weeks back the Australian actor walked into West Hollywood's Gamine salon for a haircut from owner James Kendall. But when it came time to pay the $85 tab, Ledger found he barely had enough money to cover the trim. He apologized about not being able to leave a tip and left. Three days later, Ledger pulled up in front of the salon, dashed in, handed Kendall a $20 bill and said, "Thanks for the cut, mate."
