Bradley Cooper & Zoe Saldana Party in L.A. – with His Mom! | Bradley Cooper, Zoe Saldana

Bradley Cooper & Zoe Saldana Party in L.A. – with His Mom!

Originally posted 02/28/2012 05:55AM

They made a PDA-filled splash at Sundance, and new couple Bradley Cooper and Zoe Saldana stepped out once again at L.A's SoHo House for a Grey Goose-hosted party the night before the Academy Awards. But this time around, they seemed to be playing things more coy – possibly because the reigning Sexiest Man Alive had brought his mom, Gloria, out!

Cooper had his arm around his mother (who's already met Zoe), and led the way through the Weinstein Company bash as Zoe, Casey Affleck and a pal followed them through the crowd. Meanwhile, Scarlett Johansson and new beau Nate Naylor walked hand-in-hand through the party together. The pair stopped to chat with Russell Simmons before heading out. – Julie Jordan

Casey Affleck Settles Sexual Harassment Case

Originally posted 09/15/2010 07:00AM

Casey Affleck has settled out of court with two women who filed sexual-harassment lawsuits against him for alleged incidents on the set of I'm Still Here, Affleck's documentary about his brother-in-law Joaquin Phoenix.

"The disputes between Flemmy Productions, LLC and Casey Affleck with Amanda White and Magdalena Gorka in connection with the film I'm Still Here have been resolved to the mutual satisfaction of the parties and the lawsuits are being dismissed," reps for Affleck said in a statement, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Financial details of the settlement were not made public. Producer White and cinematographer Gorka will receive credit for their work on the film despite having quit because of what they felt was a hostile work environment.

Ben Affleck, Natalie Portman, Joaquin Phoenix Fuel Toronto Film Fest Buzz

Hoping to get a glimpse of Ben Affleck, shoot the breeze with James Franco, or catch a canoodle between Shia LaBeouf and Carey Mulligan? Then pack your bags for Toronto, because those are just of the few of the glittery names hitting town for the 35th Toronto International Film Festival.

Speaking of The Town, Affleck's heist drama of that name is one of the festival's most hotly anticipated films, along with Mulligan's mesmerizing Never Let Me Go, about children raised to be spare parts for wealthier, luckier humans. Having seen both, we can already declare them more than worthy (and look for Mulligan's name on Best Actress ballots come Oscar time).

Also generating heavy buzz is Franco in 127 Hours, Slumdog Millionaire director Danny Boyle's film about Aron Ralston, the hiker forced to cut off his own arm after being trapped by a boulder, and Natalie Portman in Black Swan, a dark (some say creepy) film about the ballet world. Word is, we should expect to see Portman giving Mulligan some solid competition come awards season.

Casey Affleck Sued for Sexual Harassment – and He'll Sue Back

Casey Affleck Sued for Sexual Harassment – and He'll Sue Back

Originally posted 07/24/2010 06:00AM

Actor Casey Affleck has been slapped with a $2 million sexual harassment lawsuit by a producer of his offbeat documentary about Affleck's brother-in-law Joaquin Phoenix's quest to become a rap star. And Affleck is slapping back.

In papers filed Friday in Los Angeles, Amanda White claims Affleck acted inappropriately while directing I'm Still Here: The Lost Year of Joaquin Phoenix, alleging she encountered "uninvited and unwelcome sexual advances in the workplace" during production, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

In response, Michael Plonsker, a litigator for Affleck and his production company Flemmy Prods., tells the trade paper, "The allegations brought upon our clients are preposterous and without merit. Ms. White was terminated from the production over a year ago. She and her lawyers believe that this maliciously and erroneously filed complaint will cause the producers to succumb to her outrageous and baseless demands. She is mistaken."

Adds Plonsker: "The complaint will be vigorously defended and cross-claims will be filed against her."
