Lots of people dread going to their 20-year high school reunion. But not Bradley Cooper!

The Hangover star returned to his alma mater, Germantown Academy in Fort Washington, Pa., on Nov. 8 to catch up with friends from the class of 1993 and visit his favorite teachers.

"He has come back to GA a couple of times to talk to students," a school official tells PEOPLE. "He loves seeing his old teachers and enjoys reminiscing with them. When he says he's going to do something for the school, he does it. He's a big supporter and proud to be a part of this school. So it was no surprise that he came to the reunion."

Michael Douglas Says 'Things Are Great'

Michael Douglas sounds optimistic when it comes to him and estranged wife Catherine Zeta-Jones.

"Things are great," Douglas, now starring in Last Vegas, told reporters when asked about his nearly 13-year marriage. "Onward and upward."

Douglas, 69, was sans Zeta-Jones, 44, in Las Vegas at a promotional event for his new movie but donned his wedding ring and seemed in fine spirits.

Zeta-Jones was also spotted wearing her wedding ring in New York City last week, though the couple, who decided to "take a break" from their marriage earlier this year, haven't stepped out publicly together since last spring.

Bradley Cooper vs. Ryan Reynolds: Ken Jeong Compares His Sexiest Costars

Originally posted 07/10/2013 09:45AM

Is Six Degrees of Ken Jeong about to take off as the new Hollywood parlor game?

The Hangover's breakout star has worked with his share of PEOPLE's Sexiest Men Alive – paging Ryan Reynolds and Bradley Cooper – and the actor says he's not far from becoming his own version of the game Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon, in which players attempt to link Bacon to every other actor on planet earth.

"I may have possibly, yes, worked with some of the Sexiest Men Alive. I might be the Kevin Bacon of Sexiest Men," Jeong said jokingly to PEOPLE at Tuesday night's premiere of his new animated 3D movie Turbo, starring Reynolds. (It opens nationally July 17.)

"I've got, like, different degrees of Sexiest Man [in my life]."

But out of the two men, Reynolds and Cooper (who starred with Jeong in all three Hangover movies), who would Jeong say really owns the crown?

The Hangover Kiddo Hits the Red Carpet in Style

Grant Holmquist (a.k.a. The Hangover Baby) Hits the All-Star Red Carpet

Originally posted 05/28/2013 03:05PM

It was a pretty cool night for a 5-year-old.

Grant Holmquist, – the blue-eyed, chubby-cheeked Hangover baby who reprises his role of Tyler (a.k.a. Carlos) in The Hangover Part III – got to walk the red carpet with his costars in Hollywood last week. And it seems that they're just as taken with the little guy as moviegoers.

On set, "Zach [Galifianakis] did an amazing job loosening Grant up," the little actor's mom, Carrie Holmquist (who was on hand to snap photos), told PEOPLE. And Grant was clearly delighted to see "Zachy," as he calls him, on the red carpet for the premiere. (Grant only walked the carpet, he wasn't allowed at the R-rated screening since he's a minor.)

If you've seen 2009's The Hangover, there's no forgetting Tyler (a.k.a. Carlos), the wide-eyed baby boy who tags along with Zach Galifianakis, Bradley Cooper and Ed Helms in Las Vegas.

And there's no mistaking him four years later in The Hangover Part III, in theaters Friday.

"The cheeks kinda give it away, right?" his mom, Carrie Holmquist, jokes to PEOPLE. In honor of the third installment (the last of the series, promises director Todd Phillips), we give you a trio of little known, fun facts about the littlest member of the franchise.

The Roles Katharine McPhee Lost Before Smash


Katharine McPhee: Before Smash There Were Roles That Got Away

Originally posted 02/07/2012 03:15PM

With Monday's premiere of NBC's heavily promoted Smash, season-five American Idol alum Katharine McPhee finally got to show herself off as a triple threat: singer, dancer, actor.

While her vocalizing had already helped give her fans something called McPhever, and her acting chops were put on display in the 2008 movie comedy House Bunny, the performer still harbored some pre-Smash regrets for some roles that got away. Specifically, one in the biggest comedy of 2009.

"It was between me and the girl who got it for The Hangover [as] the bride," McPhee, 27, recently told PEOPLE. After meeting with director Todd Phillips, "I didn't get it, but I went all the way. I would have loved to play that part."

The Hangover Part II Poster Revealed

They're back and getting into trouble again.

The mischievous group of guys from The Hangover – Phil (Bradley Cooper), Stu (Ed Helms), Alan (Zach Galifianakis) and Doug (Justin Bartha) – are reuniting for The Hangover Part II, and if the poster is any indication, they're up to their old antics.

This time the best pals travel to Thailand for Stu's wedding.

According to the studio, Stu decides on a "safe, subdued pre-wedding brunch," instead of a wild bachelor party before he ties the knot. "However, things don't always go as planned," says the studio release. "What happens in Vegas may stay in Vegas, but what happens in Bangkok can't even be imagined."

Bradley Cooper: Sorry, Charlie Sheen Won't Be in Hangover 2

Originally posted 03/07/2011 10:00AM

Despite rampant rumors to the contrary, Charlie Sheen will not appear in The Hangover Part II, according to Bradley Cooper – that is, barring a technological miracle.

"Unless they have a time machine and we can go back to Bangkok, my understanding is that we have already filmed the movie," Cooper, 36, told PEOPLE at Saturday's New York press conference for another film of his, Limitless.

In a way, the Sheen rumors are understandable, given director Todd Philips's eagerness to line up unusual cameos. He originally went after Mel Gibson (that didn't work out) and then got Bill Clinton to film a scene.
