The Jonas Brothers
LUCKY IN LOVE!
Nick and Joe Jonas are notoriously private about their love lives-at least normally. But they weren't hiding their affection for their dates in London on Oct. 3 when they hit the afterparty for Nick's Les Miserables performance (older brother Kevin and wife Danielle joined them to make it a triple date). Although Nick, 18, played it cool when Scoop asked about his relationship with British costar Samantha Barks, 20 ("I keep that stuff to myself," he says), the pair's body language-they held hands at the bash at indig o2 nightclub-was telling. Meanwhile, a source says Joe-who spent the night kissing girlfriend Ashley Greene between slow dances-has been getting more serious with the Twilight saga star. "Joe loves that she is an independent woman with her own busy career," a source says of the couple, who started dating this summer after Joe split from Demi Lovato. How serious? "He is head over heels for Ashley," another source tells Scoop. "He hasn't been this into a girl in a long time."
GEORGE'S LEADING LADIES
WHERE ARE THEY NOW?
The eternal bachelor (and marriage renouncer) has squired many beauties over the years. But has he finally found a keeper?
After more than a year, Clooney is still smitten with Italian Elisabetta Canalis, 32.
She was his lucky date to the Oscars in '08, but after their yearlong romance ended, Sarah Larson, 31, went back to waitressing, currently at Lavo, in N.Y.C.
TV personality Lisa Snowdon, 38, went on to host Britain's Next Top Model after her five-year on-off relationship with Clooney went off for good in '05.
French former waitress Celine Balitran, 35, and Clooney split in 1999. She went on to star in a reality show titled La Ferme Celebrites.
They divorced in '93, but Clooney's only ex-wife may look familiar. Talia Balsam, 51, plays the jilted spouse of real-life husband John Slattery on Mad Men.
Clooney's former live-in love (she gave him his pet pig Max!) Kelly Preston, 47, is pregnant with her third child with hubby John Travolta.
LINDSAY LOHAN BACK TO REHAB
FIFTH TIME'S THE CHARM?
Within days of being released from jail for violating her parole, the actress, 24, checked into rehab for the fifth time in three years. "What she does matters," a source tells Scoop. This voluntary move may help when she faces sentencing later this month; friends also hope it will help set her straight. "She's ready for some serious changes," says a pal.
GROWING, GOING, GONE!
Some of Hollywood's hottest hunks have been wearing beards. Is it a fashion statement or are they just tired of shaving? Scoop launches a special investigation:
He's been scruffy all fall. The downside: Girlfriend Vanessa Hudgens "finds it very itchy when I kiss her."
Gyllenhaal usually sports a five o'clock shadow, but he debuted a fuller beard in late September.
The Twilight Saga heartthrob, who was looking more werewolf than vampire, has recently shaved.
Finally, a clean face! Blame Don Draper-Hamm seems to skip the razor when he's on filming hiatus.
NEW COUPLE ALERT!
RACHEL McADAMS & MICHAEL SHEEN
After raising eyebrows during a Toronto Film Festival afterparty, Midnight in Paris costars McAdams, 33, and Sheen, 41, stepped out hand-in-hand to check out art exhibits in her Toronto hometown. McAdams had dated actor Josh Lucas, 39; Sheen (who appears as Tina Fey's wannabe boyfriend on 30 Rock) has a daughter, Lily, 11, with ex Kate Beckinsale.
High-cholesterol Kevin! The actor-musician, 52, gets a tribute befitting his name.
It took three months for artist Mike Lahue to make a bust of the actor out of-you guessed it-bacon! The 14.25-in. Bacon Kevin Bacon sculpture on eBay will be auctioned Oct. 9 to support Ashley's Team, a charity that provides support to families of kids with cancer.
A LIVING DOLL!
Justin Bieber fever has hit a new pitch with the news that the 16-year-old Canadian singer will have his own line of action figures. All five dolls have his signature mop-top hairstyle, but each has a different outfit (concert garb and just-chillin'-with his-peeps threads), and two of the figures play clips of his hits "Baby" and "One Less Lonely Girl." Retailing for $17.99-$27.99, the mini Biebs will be in stores early December.
REAL HOUSEWIVES OF NEW JERSEY
UP FOR SALE
Teresa Giudice's personal possessions are off the block, the formal auction block that is. The reality star, 38, will now sell her items in a private sale. Meanwhile, Danielle Staub, 48, is still trying to unload her $1.495 million home. But according to reports, the asking price has been reduced by $400,000 and is now listed as a "court ordered sale."
Who Should Play Capt. Sully?
Nearly two years after Captain Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger III landed US Airways Flight 1549 on the Hudson River, Hollywood is taking the miraculous story-based on his autobiography Highest Duty: My Search for What Really Matters-to the big screen. Our online poll shows that William H. Macy, 60, would do the "Miracle on the Hudson" pilot proud.
WILLIAM H. MACY
ALI LARTER'S BABY SHOWER!
The Resident Evil star celebrated her baby-on-board (they call him Baby Mac) with a shower Oct. 2 in L.A. Larter's hubby, Hayes MacArthur, made a post-golf-game cameo, and family flew in from the East Coast. "I didn't want anything too stuffy," she told Scoop. "It was perfect!"
