There were scores of stars at Monday's night screening of Smart People, but Jane Fonda only had eyes for boyfriend Lynden Gillis.
The 70-year-old screen star and Gillis, a retired businessman, were nearly inseparable at the dinner – cohosted by Allure editor Linda Wells and Cinema Society – held at New York's Bowery Hotel.
While Sarah Jessica Parker, Matthew Broderick and Dennis Quaid mingled, Gillis, 75, remained at Fonda's side – first over drinks at the bar and then on a secluded outdoor patio. (The actress has said the distinguished-looking Gillis – who was previously married to Fonda's college roommate – resembles both her father, Henry Fonda, and Clint Eastwood.)

The Vagina Monologues author Eve Ensler was sitting next to Jane Fonda on the Today show Thursday, when the controversial actress dropped the C-word on live television.
Host Meredith Vieira later apologized for Fonda's use of the term – a taboo expression for female anatomy. The word was also removed from the Midwest and West Coast broadcasts of the program. In addition, Fonda's rep issued an apology on behalf of the actress, who said she regretted the "slip ... She certainly meant no disrespect," reports New York's Daily News.
But what was Ensler's reaction? Indifference.

CELEBRATED: Kenny Chesney was named entertainer of the year at the 40th annual Academy of Country Music Awards in Las Vegas on Tuesday night, just eight days after his surprise marriage to Renée Zellweger, who was on a movie set and missed the show. The new groom laughed off questions about his marriage after the show, saying only that he would spend his evening going to a party and doing a little gambling, the Associated Press reports. Gretchen Wilson won for both female vocalist and best new artist; Australian Keith Urban took male vocalist and album awards; while Tim McGraw, Brad Paisley and Alison Krauss won two trophies each.

PUNK'D: Star Jones Reynolds, 43, is keeping a sense of humor about a new ad campaign by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, which features a 6'-tall drag queen named Flotilla DeBarge who's dressed to look like the View cohost. The "Fur is a Drag" ad will feature DeBarge wearing a fur-accented bridal gown splattered with blood. "As long as no laws are broken, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery," Jones Reynolds said in a statement to the Associated Press. "I hope his hair and makeup look fabulous and he remembers to shave."
