Date Night! Star Couples Share Sweet Evening at the SAG Awards

Originally posted 01/24/2010 01:20PM

Romance seemed to be in the air Saturday at the Screen Actors Guild Awards in Los Angeles as stars and their spouses showed their sweet affection for each other.

• Kevin Bacon was a bundle of nerves before his name was announced as best male actor in a TV movie or miniseries for his role in HBO's Taking Chance, but wife Kyra Sedgwick kept him looking his best. How? "I had to blot his face a little," she admitted to PEOPLE at the afterparty.

Mad Men star Christina Hendricks's new husband, Geoffrey Arend, was clearly his wife's biggest fan. "I feel like the luckiest man ever. She's such a cutie pie," he raved. "When Michael C. Hall said 'I want to thank my wife for wearing that dress,' I feel that way every single awards show." Hendricks agreed, telling PEOPLE, "He's been feeling me all night."

Jenna Fischer Will Be a Summer Bride

Jenna Fischer is letting out a few more details about her upcoming wedding to fiancé Lee Kirk.

"We have a venue, food and music so far," she told PEOPLE Saturday at the 2nd Annual Fur Ball at the Skirball Fundraiser benefiting Kitten Rescue. "We're getting married next summer in Los Angeles. We're keeping it small."

The actress, who got engaged to Kirk on June 30 while they were vacationing in Europe, has checked a few items off her to-do list and says she's enjoyed every minute of it.

"We just got our save the date cards in, and they're adorable – after many hours and many proofs later," Fischer says. "We're going to hold them until after the holidays before sending them out so they don't get lost in the holiday mail. They were fun to pick out and [it] was a very fun girlie experience to touch the paper."

The Office's Jenna Fischer is usually a pretty sensible person, but all that goes out the door when it comes to her upcoming wedding to screenwriter Lee Kirk.

"I thought I was going to be one of those easy-going brides," Fischer, 35, tells Bonnie Hunt in an interview to air Thursday. "I never really thought about it. Whatever … a piece of paper, words – send it out."

But that attitude disappeared at the store where she bought the invitations.

She may play a somewhat dowdy receptionist-cum-salesperson on The Office, but Jenna Fischer is well aware that being the resident hottie of a hit show means keeping herself in tiptop shape.

So after she broke her back in four places by falling down stairs in a Manhattan restaurant in 2007, she had a lot of work to do to lose the weight she gained during her convalescence.

"Before the accident, I wore size 26 jeans!" she says in the November issue of Shape, out Oct. 19. "I was truly in the best shape of my life. Afterward, I gained 10 lbs. and got flabby."


"And to add insult to injury, I ended up throwing my own drink in my face. My hair was caked with a putrid pineapple smell. It was awful," she says about her accident.

But her recipe for getting her lean body back was simple: hiking with friends and cutting down on fatty favorites.

Jenna Fischer: Why I Don't Wear My Engagement Ring

Jenna Fischer may not wear a special piece of jewelry on her ring finger all the time – but that doesn't mean she's not happily engaged.

"I always see these tabloid reports about certain people being 'Spotted Without Their Wedding Ring!' like it's some big deal," Fischer, 35, writes on her MySpace page, where she answers questions from fans.

The Office star, who plans to tie the knot with writer Lee Kirk, says she doesn't wear any jewelry to work – including her engagement ring – because she "would have to take it off and leave it in my trailer, which I would never do."

QUOTED: Jenna Fischer Thanks Crock-Pot Meals for Hanky-Panky Time

Originally posted 01/15/2009 02:55PM

"Ladies, if you have a Crock-Pot you got for your wedding and never use, dig it out and start cooking. This is the best invention since the microwave for busy women who want a home-cooked meal. You can make so many great things: turkey chili, pot roast, chicken breasts, ribs and my all-time favorite – Mom’s Stuffed Peppers. I prepared everything the night before, threw it in the Crock-Pot in the morning, set it on low and came home to dinner. My boyfriend adored it. We had more time to spend together that evening. Since we didn’t have to cook, it left time for hanky-panky!"
