It was a (typically) star-studded night at West Hollywood's Chateau Marmont.
Lindsay Lohan may have (mostly) been preoccupied with her cell phone during her evening out with friends – she was glued to it, constantly texting, as were her pals – but that didn't stop her entirely from taking notice of fellow celebs. The starlet jumped out of her chair and ran to give Emily Blunt a hug when she saw the British actress approaching. They shared some pleasant small talk – and smiles – before Blunt headed away with her friend.
Soon, though, Lohan had another visitor: Gerard Butler, who arrived on the patio after midnight and sauntered over to the garden bar near where Lindsay and her friends were seated. The two were laughing and telling jokes, and Butler kept his hands on both sides of her chair as he leaned in close to talk. She was soaking up the attention and even asked him to come closer so she could whisper in his ear.

Just call them the O'Duhamels! Fergie and hubby Josh Duhamel got down at Confidential Night Club in Los Angeles on Saturday night. Fergie, who was wearing all green, danced and cheered on the crowd while bandmate apl.de.ap played her hits; meanwhile, Duhamel – who arrived in a beanie but later revealed his mohawk – pulled out his iPhone and recorded the scene.
The couple, joined by Fergie's sister Dana and Real Housewives of Beverly Hills stars Adrienne Maloof and Paul Nassif, were on hand to celebrate not only St. Patrick's Day but Voli trainer Don-A-Matrix and Fergie's new Voli light vodka drink, "The Ferguson." – Jessica Wedemeyer

In Austin, Texas, for a little South by Southwest action, new couple Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudekis caught the MySpace-sponsored Mumford & Sons and Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes concert. The stars, caught cuddling backstage, were dressed casually in hoodies, and spent time enjoying the music with friends.
Gerard Butler was also there; the actor snuck in with five friends and went virtually unnoticed by concertgoers. Justin Long and Abigail Spencer were both spotted in the crowd, too. – Jennifer Garcia

Gerard Butler is keeping up his clean living after his stint in rehab, but it doesn't mean he's missing out on fun. Recently, the actor attended the Crash Kings concert at L.A.'s Troubadour. Butler appeared to arrive at the rock show solo – and he abstained from alcohol and stood in the back of the venue. Though he was on his phone for a good period of time, he was extremely polite and chatted with fans. He also made a little eye contact with a tall brunette during the show, according to a fellow audience member.

Only a week after announcing he'd completed stint in rehab, Gerard Butler hit up Beacher's Madhouse in L.A. around 1 a.m. to scope out the scene. The Scottish actor tried to go incognito in a hat and leather jacket: He was immediately noticed – especially by female clubgoers, who came over to chat throughout the night.
Butler, meanwhile, stuck to bottled water and chatted up the burlesque show's impresario, Jeff Beacher, who also sipped water. The two seemed to be pretty good friends, according to an onlooker. But that didn't stop the female attention, and at one point, a woman came over and danced close to the actor while DJ Baby Chino performed.
Butler was polite but didn't seem very interested in the women's attention, leaving the club solo around 1:30 a.m.

Gerard Butler has completed treatment for substance-abuse issues, his rep has confirmed to PEOPLE.
"Gerard has completed a successful course of treatment and has returned home in good health," says the spokesperson. "We will not be making any further comment at this time."
Butler, 42, checked himself into the Betty Ford clinic three weeks ago because he realized he was becoming reliant on prescription drugs after being badly injured in a surfing accident in December, TMZ reports.
He allegedly decided to enter rehab before developing a full-blown addiction to the drugs.

Gerard Butler is battling an addiction – to surfing.
Butler, 42, says he wanted to get right back into the water after his near-death experience when he was pulled underwater and dragged over a reef in Northern California last month while filming the surf movie Of Men and Mavericks.
"I was going to go back that day," the 300 star said on the U.K.'s The Graham Norton Show. "I was actually in the ambulance and wanted to go back, which was a little crazy, but it’s pretty addictive."

Gerard Butler was pulled underwater and dragged over a rocky reef Sunday by a large set of waves while he was filming the surfing movie Of Men and Mavericks in Northern California.
The actor, 42, was taken to Stanford Medical Center dazed but not seriously injured, after being rescued by a safety patrolman, according to ESPN.com.
"[Butler] had that 100-yard stare that surfers get after a two-wave hold-down or near-death experience," reports ESPN.

Gerard Butler may be in Santa Cruz, Calif., for work, but the actor took time to celebrate his 42nd birthday with friends in nearby San Francisco. Butler, who's filming the surfer movie Of Men and Mavericks, and his eight pals hit up the Redwood Room inside the Clift Hotel for their low-key bash – so low-key there was no singing or cake. Still, a source tells us, the actor was "in great spirits." – Jennifer Garcia
