Attention '90s TV fans: Prepare to have your minds blown.
On Wednesday, the Los Angeles red carpet premiere of Dark Tourist starring Melanie Griffith featured a double reunion of stars from two beloved '90s shows: Beverly Hills, 90210 and Home Improvement.
Beverly Hills' resident hunks Luke Perry and Jason Priestly, who played Dylan McKay and Brandon Walsh, looked as cooly casual as they found each other on the carpet and posed for photos with their signature smoldering stares. (Last year, the pair appeared together in an Old Navy commercial featuring fellow Beverly Hills alum Jennie Garth.)

Pink took a break from mommy duties to perform at Sony Studios in Culver City,Calif., benefitting the Margie Petersen Breast Center at Saint John's Health Center on Monday.
The "Blow Me (One Last Kiss)" singer wore a black long-sleeved top and a black leather skirt to perform an 11-song set. The star-studded audience included Heather Locklear, Valerie Bertinelli, Melanie Griffith and Rita Wilson.
"It's been a while since I sang. I'm usually in sweatpants singing 'Shoo Fly, Don't Bother Me,'" joked the mother of 17-month-old old Willow.
Earlier in the night, Locklear and Bertinelli were seen sitting together and chatting in the VIP area close to the stage.
Guests at the event enjoyed hors d'oeuvres by Wolfgang Puck, including tuna tartare, crab cakes, mini sliders, and fire-roasted eggplant tarts, as well as cocktails and Stella Artois.

The family that walks the red carpet together, stays together.
Just weeks after Antonio Banderas, 51, and Melanie Griffith, 54, squashed rumors of marriage trouble, the pair looked happier than ever when they stepped out with daughter Stella at a charity event in Marbella, Spain.
And all eyes weren't on the famous couple, who first met in 1995 on the set of Two Much. Stella stunned in a curve-hugging, floor-length black dress at the Starlite gala. With her wavy locks pulled back into a simple chignon, the 16-year-old looked like a natural as she posed for photographers.

Something wasn't quite right with Antonio Banderas. But his wife, Melanie Griffith, only later realized what was wrong.
The Spanish actor was filming Pedro Almodóvar's psychological thriller The Skin I Live In, and it was consuming him.
"When Melanie watched the movie in Toronto, something interesting happened," Banderas, 51, said Wednesday at the film's New York Film Festival premiere. "That night, when we got to the hotel, she was just looking at me weird ... and she said to me, 'Now I understand why you acted like that the last three months of your life!' "

In 15 years of marriage, Antonio Banderas and Melanie Griffith "have had as many problems as anybody," he admits. Among them was Griffith's stint in rehab, her third, two years ago.
"We've never hidden it. We've been open about addictions, in the case of Melanie," the actor tells AARP The Magazine in its November issue.
This openness extends to their children, says Banderas. The couple have one daughter together, Stella, who turns 15 this week. Griffith also has two children from previous relationships, Alexander, 26, and Dakota, 21.
"The pretending is the worst, because kids are so smart," Banderas says. "They can see through all of those things, and if you don't talk openly about problems, it creates a very dark place. They carry that through the rest of their lives, to their marriages, to their kids."

Antonio Banderas and Melanie Griffith are a rarity in Hollywood – a couple married for 15 years and still going strong despite divorce rumors and stints in rehab. So, what's their secret?
"There is one virtue that is very underrated and that's passion," Banderas told PEOPLE at the New York launch of his fragrance, The Secret. "If you lose your passion, all these other virtues that are way more important, they just all fall."
The actor, 49, who also displayed his first photography exhibition "Secrets on Black" with pieces auctioned via Charity Buzz to raise money for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, says that hard times can make a union stronger.
