Jennifer Aniston, dining with friends Thursday at West Hollywood eatery A.O.C. "Jennifer seemed really happy – happy and content," a fellow diner tells us. At one point, Aniston, in jeans and a black top, approached Six Feet Under actress Patricia Clarkson at her table and raved about how much she loved her work.
Ryan Phillippe, holding court until 1 a.m. with six male friends and three female friends at Winston's in West Hollywood.

"(Ryan) was playing bartender, pouring drinks for all his friends while he was moving his body to (My Chemical Romance's) 'Welcome to the Black Parade.'"
American Idol judge Paula Abdul, feasting with two girlfriends at Los Angeles restaurant Table 8. The three nibbled on New Zealand lamb with porcini mushroom risotto and roasted Sungold tomatoes. "They were having a really good time," an observer tells us. "Paula did most of the talking, as her two girlfriends did lots of listening."
