Danny Glover, Samuel L. Jackson and Alfre Woodard provided the scheduled entertainment at a November fund-raiser for the West Angeles Counseling Center. But they were upstaged by Stevie Wonder, who surprised the stars—and the audience—with an impromptu miniconcert. Although Wonder didn't appear until after midnight, no one complained, including the actors, who remained on stage as Wonder performed. "I was sitting there remembering all of his concerts that I went to," Jackson says. "I never thought I would be this close to Stevie performing! It was fantasy stuff." Wonder, a member of the center's affiliated church, the West Angeles Church of God in Christ, said he decided to sing a couple of songs for the center because "anything that will...help put families back together again and mend broken hearts through counseling is a very good thing to support."
It seems John Glenn and some of his fellow space-shuttle astronauts are interested in terrestrial as well as extraterrestrial stars. After appearing on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno to talk about Glenn's historic second space trip, the stellar group traveled to the nearby ER set, where they hung out with the likes of George Clooney and Anthony Edwards.
Warren Beatty, who plays an outrageously outspoken politician in Bulworth, isn't as free with the truth when it comes to his parenting skills. When we asked the 61-year-old father of three how often he changes diapers, he laughed and asked, "What did Annette say?" referring to his wife, actress Annette Bening, who joined him at a recent party celebrating the rerelease of Bulworth. When told that Annette wanted to know what he'd said, Beatty laughed and replied, "I change diapers more than you think, but less than Annette would like."
