The stars come out at night!
Matt Damon, Marion Cotillard, Emily Blunt, John Krasinski, Amy Adams, Ethan Hawke, Frances McDormand, Jack Black, Willem Defoe and more stepped out to celebrate the 2012 Gotham Independent Film Awards at Cipriani downtown on Monday .
While Moonrise Kingdom took home the award for best feature film, Damon and Cotillard both received special career tributes during the ceremony – which honors the best in independent film.
Cotillard – who was "very smiley all evening and polite to diners around her," an onlooker tells PEOPLE – sat with Too Big to Fail actor Billy Crudup. While Damon was joined by his wife, Luciana, and shared a front and center table with Blunt and Krasinski.

Talking politics can be risky, but Mila Kunis, Matt Damon and John Cusack are taking a chance on screen.
Kunis's role on That 70's Show is nothing like her new project taking place in the same decade. Kunis will executive produce the CW drama Meridian Hills, The Hollywood Reporter confirms. In the series, a young woman joins forces with other politically motivated women in the Junior League during the women's liberation movement in 1972.
Damon, meanwhile, has signed on for an eight-part documentary series about climate change for Showtime, THR reports. The doc from James Cameron and Jerry Weintraub will focus on the human connection to the environmental conundrum.

The opening scene is tantalizingly familiar: A man floats, unmoving, in crystalline waters. It isn't Jason Bourne who springs from a frigid Alaskan river, though, but Aaron Cross (Jeremy Renner), otherwise known as the also-ran.
While Bourne was an elite soldier stripped of memory, trying to cleanse his soul (and our government), Cross is a bio-engineered action figure looking to get his next fix of super drugs. Not quite the same stakes, eh?

One of the sunniest entertainers ever to come along, flamboyant pianist Wladziu Valentino Liberace – known simply as Liberace – may have had a dark side, but he kept it carefully concealed from his public.
That is bound to change next year when HBO airs the movie Behind the Candelabra, now filming with a cast-against-type Michael Douglas as the gilded showman and Matt Damon as his much-younger lover, Scott Thorson – who exposed his life with Lee in a tell-all book and also sued for $113 million in palimony.
"He thought his personal life was nobody's business," the real-life Thorson told PEOPLE in 1987, when Liberace, 67, died from AIDS.

Look who's in lockup!
Massachusetts native Matt Damon recently sipped cocktails with friends at Alibi in Boston's Liberty Hotel. Over a few drinks in the hotel bar – which is set in the old "drunk tank" of what used to be Boston's Charles Street jail – the actor and father of four, 41, looked "relaxed," a source tells PEOPLE.
"He was just hanging out," adds the source. "He seemed very chill, and was in a great mood." No word on whether he made bail, however!

Oscar night celebrated some of the best movies of the past year. But are you ready for the greatest film ever made?
Jimmy Kimmel put together this amusing teaser for Movie: The Movie – his tongue-in-cheek attempt at making the most star-studded, spectacular film America has ever seen. Or at least, the trailer for it.
The stars are almost too numerous to count – Best Actress winner Meryl Streep, George Clooney, Tom Hanks, Charlize Theron, Matt Damon, Cameron Diaz, John Krasinski, Emily Blunt, Colin Farrell and the list goes on and on, while the plot is too hilariously clichéd to be believed.

For an especially private person, Scarlett Johansson has an especially difficult time seeing her life played out publicly.
So, imagine her horror at reading tabloid headlines about her divorce from Ryan Reynolds, her dating and breaking up with Sean Penn, her time in Paris with Kieran Culkin and in Manhattan with Justin Bartha – not to mention the nude photos from her hacked cellphone. Those went viral.
"The hardest part is actually going through whatever hardship you're facing. Going through it in public is the added unfortunate thing," the actress, 27, tells USA Today while promoting her new movie with Matt Damon, We Bought a Zoo.
Still, "There's nothing you can do about that," she says. "It's just nice to have kind of a blinder up in that regard. It helps keep you sane. I can't follow all that stuff. It's too exhausting."
