You can't keep a glam girl down.
In a red-carpet appearance in China's Shandong province on Saturday, Catherine Zeta-Jones stepped out at a star-studded event to announce the launch of a new $5 billion film studio there, as well as plans by AMC Entertainment to host an annual Chinese film festival. (AMC was purchased by China's Wanda group in 2012.)
Other A-listers in attendance included Leonardo DiCaprio, John Travolta, Nicole Kidman and Ewan McGregor.
It was the actress's first public appearance since PEOPLE revealed her separation from her husband of nearly 13 years, actor Michael Douglas, in late August.

Don't mess with Gina!
That's the lesson Gina Carano's costars learned while they were filming Steven Soderbergh's Haywire. After all, Carano isn't just another new face in a Hollywood action thriller. She's a former mixed martial arts star, who is making her movie debut in Soderbergh's latest flick, which opens Friday.
"I got to be physical with some of the hottest guys in Hollywood," Carano, who tussles with Channing Tatum, Ewan McGregor and Michael Fassbender in the film, told PEOPLE at the BlackBerry-sponsored Cinema Society screening this week.

Who can hold a candle to Elton John?
The singer's husband David Furnish recently revealed that they've started work on Rocketman, a movie about John's "very extraordinary and unique life," he tells Entertainment Weekly.
While Scottish actor James McAvoy is rumored to be the frontrunner to play Sir Elton, we've got some other ideas for the role – especially when it comes to slipping in to John's glamorous (and spangly) '70s wardrobe.
On our list: comic actor David Cross (of Arrested Development); The League's Paul Scheer, who more than bares a passing resemblance to the '70s-era star; Mike Myers, who, apart from being a comedy star, is musically-inclined; and Scottish star Ewan McGregor who's already posed as a glam rocker in Todd Haynes's Velvet Goldmine.

When Ewan McGregor first signed on to star in his new film Beginners, he told director Mike Mills that he wanted to be involved in choosing his co-star – the canine one.
The actor, who hadn't had a dog since he was young, offered to rescue a dog to play the part of his character's pet. His motive? McGregor wanted to keep the dog after the movie wrapped.

Jim Carrey says the kissing scenes in his latest film, I Love You Phillip Morris, had at least one important thing going for them: Major chemistry.
"I mean, look at the guy. I have to say, he is a great kisser," Carrey, 48, tells Parade of his smooches with costar Ewan McGregor.
That's not to say Carrey – who plays an incarcerated man who falls in love with a fellow inmate – wasn't warned about potential problems with kissing a man.

They may be costars onscreen – but it looks like these guys are still feeling the love even after the cameras stop rolling.
During the recent Parisian premiere of I Love You Phillip Morris, Jim Carrey couldn't help but plant a sweet one on Ewan McGregor. (The two play lovers in the flick.) And though he may be engaged to Katy Perry, Russell Brand was feeling warm toward his Forgetting Sarah Marshall costar at a Haitian earthquake benefit in L.A. on Tuesday. Even Josh Brolin, who played Sean Penn's archrival in Milk, couldn't suppress his affection for his former costar. How sweet!

Angels & Demons costar Ewan McGregor has demons – and angels – of his own.
"It's interesting that people used to think that smoking was glamorous," the Scotsman, 38, speaking to Men's Health for its June issue (on sale next Tuesday), said of one of his demons, that of his addiction to lighting up. "I used to think it was pretty cool."
Then he realized that smoking is lethal, and he kicked the habit. As he did drinking. How?

Ewan McGregor had a brush with skin cancer but says he is "fine" now.
The Scottish actor, 37, was promoting his latest film, the sex thriller Deception, when he revealed on the BBC that he was forced to have a suspicious-looking facial mole – one of several – removed from just below his right eye.
"You have to be careful if you're pale-skinned and spend any time in the sun," McGregor said. "I went to see a specialist who thought they were better to be removed, and indeed he was correct."
