In Madrid, Tom Cruise and wife Nicole Kidman had their eyes wide open—and focused on each other—while promoting her thriller The Others, now shooting in Spain. His production company is also working on the film.

Through with the chilly waters of The Perfect Storm, actor George Clooney showed the perfect form for taking a casual flying leap while vacationing in Saint-Tropez. He also demonstrated (right) the art of sitting still.

Also visiting Saint-Tropez, but not with George Clooney (see pages 6-7): Prince Andrew and daughter Eugenie, 10, made waves offshore. Along for the vacation were Eugenie's big sister Beatrice, 12, and their mum, Sarah, Duchess of York.

At an L.A. festival promoting vegetarianism, Alicia Silverstone's beau, musician Chris Jarecki, kept a leash on her dog Sampson. Apparently, Alicia also has a hold on Chris: Check out the tattoo on his haunch.

Hit the road, Jackie: In New York City, Joanne Whalley, ex-wife of actor Val Kilmer, grabbed a cab while filming the title role in the CBS miniseries Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis: A Life, due to air Nov. 5 and 8.

Undress rehearsal: Model Jerry Hall prepared to unveil her first performance as Mrs. Robinson in the London stage version of The Graduate. Hall, who replaced Kathleen Turner in the role, will star until February.

Renée Zellweger, having put on some 15 lbs. for her latest role, showed off new curves on the London set of Bridget Jones's Diary. She stars as the everywoman heroine of Helen Fielding's 1998 bestseller.

Today cohost Matt Lauer chivalrously carried the goods as he and his wife of nearly two years, model Annette Roque, shopped, strolled and squeezed in a bit of playtime on Manhattan's Madison Avenue.

Seventh-inning stitch: Comedians Jerry Seinfeld and Chris Rock appeared to be trying out new material on each other while watching the Mets beat the visiting St. Louis Cardinals, 4-3, at New York City's Shea Stadium.

Now you can lick the entire royal family with one hand tied behind your back: A new British stamp sheet features Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Charles, the Queen Mother and, for the first time, Prince William (inset).
