Jenna Fischer & Lee Kirk Look 'Smitten' in New York

Originally posted 07/16/2013 06:50PM

Jenna Fischer and her husband Lee Kirk are relatively new parents (to 22-month-old son, Weston), so it was a luxury to spend a night out in New York City Monday.

The pair attended a special screening of Girl Most Likely (starring Kristen Wiig and Annette Bening), hosted´┐Żby The Cinema Society and Brooks Brothers. Afterwards, the couple headed over – along with much of the cast – to a rooftop party at Hotel Americano.

?They were adorable,? says an onlooker. While guests sipped Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir, ?Jenna munched on a beef slider, and Lee stayed close to her most of the night. They were laughing and smiling,? as they mingled with other celeb guests.

Annette Bening: Whoopi Goldberg Bought Me Dinner after 1990 Oscars

Originally posted 02/05/2011 04:30PM

A lot has changed in the 21 years since Annette Bening earned her first Oscar nomination.

Bening, 52, a Best Actress nominee this year for The Kids Are All Right, recalls award season being much less circus-like in 1990 – so much so that she and her fellow Best Supporting Actress nominees could make a friendly wager and then all get together, without a peep from the media.

"In the orchestra section, there were no cameras then, and so we were all chatting," says Bening, who'd been nominated for The Grifters. "Mary McDonnell and I were talking. Lorraine Bracco, Diane Ladd and Whoopi Goldberg, we were all talking. And we all agreed that we would have dinner the next week, and whoever won would pay."

After Sarah Palin's much-remarked-upon appearance Wednesday at the Republican National Convention, imaginations have run wild on who might play her should a TV movie be made about her life.

Among the possibilities (one of whom is a noted liberal Democrat, while another leans more along the lines of the Alaska governor herself) are these notable working moms: Annette Bening, Tina Fey and Patricia Heaton.
