Globe Nod Causes Mary-Louise Parker to Burn Her Waffles

Originally posted 12/13/2007 12:30PM

Mary-Louise Parker's Golden Globe nomination caused quite a stir at her house Thursday morning – and nearly started a fire.

"I was in the kitchen making breakfast for my kids. I was making waffles, which almost caught fire," the star of Weeds tells PEOPLE about getting the news of her best actress nomination. "I was on the phone for a long time and then I noticed it was really smoky."

But she says her two children didn't mind all the commotion. "It was kind of fun. My kids like it when the smoke alarm goes off. It's loud, and exciting, and my son gets to pick up the broom and hit the ceiling with it."

Mary-Louise Parker & Jeffrey Dean Morgan Step Out Again

Originally posted 12/10/2007 09:40AM

Are Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Mary-Louise Parker back on? Morgan and Parker, who split in June, showed up to the P.S. I Love You premiere Sunday night with their arms around each other and Parker, 43, even held Morgan's hand while he did an interview.

When asked what he thought about his date – who looked hot in a dangerously short dress – Morgan, 41, responded to PEOPLE, "What about her?" as he raised an eyebrow and flashed a sly grin.

But that's not to say he only had eyes for Parker. During a cast photo, Morgan playfully grabbed Hilary Swank's bottom, who took it all in good humor. Soon enough, he had moved onto Gerard Butler, who told PEOPLE, "Jeffrey Dean Morgan rubbing my ass, yeah that's about as good as it gets!"
