Model Christy Turlington threw a surprise 29th-birthday bash for beau Jason Patric (center) at Las Vegas's Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, and ER's George Clooney (right) was there when the chips were down.

Susan Sarandon brought sons Miles (left), 3, and Jack, 6, to cheer their dad, Tim Robbins (in uniform at right), as he played charity hoops in New York City to benefit city arts programs. The 6'4" actor helped his team to a 63-61 victory.

Up to his ears in launching his new political magazine, George (as in Washington), John F. Kennedy Jr. took a break to get waisted in the surf during Father's Day weekend at the Kennedy compound in Hyannis Port, Mass. Back in New York City his big sister Caroline and her husband, Ed Schlossberg (top), made a splash at a Manhattan benefit for Outward Bound.

Elton John wore Gianni Versace—nothing unusual there—while serving as cohost at a benefit in London to hype Versace's new book, Men Without Ties. The gala raised about $160,000 for the Elton John AIDS Foundation.

College student Shoshanna Lonstein and love muffin Jerry Seinfeld legged it around Manhattan, taking an urban break from their seaside frolics in the nearby Hamptons.

Aussie actress Toni Collette (Muriel's Wedding) got tips on youth and stardom from gen-X icon Ethan Hawke at the Manhattan premiere party for The Postman (Il Postino).

Funny Teri Garr spoke volumes by showing up at Steve Kroft's place in Sag Harbor, N.Y., when the 60 Minutes correspondent threw a party to honor author Peter Maas for his new nonfiction book Killer Spy, about CIA agent Aldrich Ames.

The world's cutest couple, British actor Hugh Grant and his girlfriend, new Esteé Lauder spokeswoman Elizabeth Hurley, raised the attractiveness quotient in Manhattan during a recent visit. His next movie, the comedy Nine Months, opens July 12.

Las Vegas is landlocked, but Goldie Hawn and her roomie Kurt Russell took the plunge at the opening there of Dive!, an aquatically-themed restaurant partly owned by director Steven Spielberg. (The first Dive! opened in L.A. last year.)
