In Manhattan, Drew Barrymore
took the cake with Adam Sandler to promote their romantic comedy The Wedding Singer. As for what attracted Barrymore, a divorcée, to the role, she says, "She's the kind of girl I always wanted to be in a relationship: easygoing. Not a nag. Patient. Understanding. Good-spirited on a consistent basis. She is the ideal girl."
No, Sigourney Weaver wasn't filming Alien 5: Here Come the Transvestites!—just celebrating winning Harvard's Hasty Pudding Woman of the Year award with cross-dressed earthlings in Cambridge, Mass. "It's all downhill from here," she said.

At a Victoria's Secret fashion show in Manhattan, model Tyra Banks
(above) wore not very much other than angel wings and still had only the second-best outfit of the evening. First place, same party: former child star Gary Coleman (left), in a platinum wig and snappy black raincoat.
You better shop around: Murphy Brown star Candice Bergen picked up a few bargains—actually, about all she could carry—at a Barneys New York warehouse sale in Santa Monica.

In New York City for the NBA All-Star game, L.A. Lakers center and West starter Shaquille O'Neal (left) made a hairy entrance at an Official All Star Cafe party. Meanwhile at the game, where the East defeated the West 135-114, The Artist (below, left) hung out with director and New York Knicks season ticket holder Spike Lee in prime courtside seats.
, whose band Dogstar is looking for a record deal, schmoozed at a music convention in L.A. Although Reeves is now filming the sci-fi flick Matrix, a rep for the group promises "the band will be touring this summer."
Paul Sorvino got a big ol' bear hug from his Oscar-winning daughter Mira at the Los Angeles premiere of her new action adventure The Replacement Killers, which costars Hong Kong movie hero Chow Yun-Fat.
Dressed to kill: Sartorially splendid Denzel Washington
looked cool even while battling Middle Eastern terrorists on the New York City set of Martial Law, his upcoming thriller costarring Bruce Willis
and Annette Bening. In the movie, due later this year, Washington plays an FBI agent who teams up with a CIA operative (Bening) to investigate a series of bombings in the Big Apple.
