Josh Lucas may hold the key to girlfriend Salma Hayek's heart, but he's got access problems with her home. After attending an exhibit by artist Francesco Clemente in Beverly Hills on Sept. 28, the couple went to her place to change before dinner at Dolce with Clemente, Benicio Del Toro and Hayek's brother Sami. But the actress never made it; she had locked herself out of her house. Lucas had to go to the gathering solo to get a set of spare keys from Sami.
THE SPY LOVED ME
What kind of gift do you give the woman who already has James Bond? For starters, Pierce Brosnan, 50, gave wife Keely Shaye Brosnan, who turned 40 on Sept. 25, an $80,000 BMW. He also treated her to a two-day yacht cruise around the Channel Islands off the Southern California coast. Along for the voyage: a chef to cook her favorite meals for her.
What are Friends for? For the show's last season, Lisa Kudrow and Matthew Perry have exchanged dressing rooms. The reason: Kudrow, who stars in the new drama Wonderland, no longer needed her attached nursery, since son Julian, 5, started kindergarten this year. Perry, on the other hand, coveted the extra space—not that he suddenly has child-care needs. He's turned the area into a video game room. In other Friends news, plans are already under way for the gala wrap party. One possibility being discussed is to have the bash in Manhattan, where the show is set.
TO THE RESCUE
When Hurricane Fabian pounded Bermuda in September, it spared the five-bedroom villa of the pink-beached island's most famous residents, Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones. (The couple were in New York City at the time.) But at Ariel Sands, the cottage-style beach resort Douglas co-owns, the storm carried away 20 roofs. With trees and power lines down all over the island, Douglas loaded up his private jet on Sept. 17 and flew down to deliver generators and chain saws. Douglas then stayed for a week helping to clear trees and do repairs.
