Ellen DeGeneres Spills the Beans on Justin Theroux & Julianne Hough's Breakdancing Battle

Originally posted 01/31/2013 05:30PM

Apparently birthdays and breakdancing go hand-in-hand for Justin Theroux.

After granting fiancée Jennifer Aniston her wish by spinning on the floor when she turned 43, he recently showed off his skills at a joint birthday bash for pals Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi. But this time, Julianne Hough, 24, gave the actor, 41, a run for his money.

"[They] decided to have a breakdancing break-off," DeGeneres said Thursday on Ellen. "So we wanted to roll the rug back so they could spin on the floor. And [Julianne] was wearing a skirt and goes, 'I need pants.' ... She and Justin Theroux had a huge dance-off. It was crazy. It was a really fun night. She's an amazing dancer."

A slam dunk for Twilight!

Robert Pattinson stepped out Sunday night to attend Emmy host Jimmy Kimmel's after party at Soho House in Los Angeles.

Joined by a male friend, Pattinson was dressed casually in a baseball cap and jacket, but every girl in the room was "trying to get his attention," an onlooker tells PEOPLE.

Inside the star studded event, guests sipped on Don Julio margaritas and Bulleit Bourbon Old Fashioned cocktails and snacked on sliders from Umami Burger.

Samantha Ronson deejayed a set full of current hits and classic rock while nominees, winners and guests including Breaking Bad's Aaron Paul and Bryan Cranston, Ellen DeGeneres and Portia De Rossi, Downton Abbey's Michelle Dockery, L.A. Laker Kobe Bryant and more enjoyed the evening.

"At one point Rob approached Kobe to say hi and tell him he was a big fan," the source adds. "Kobe said the same right back to him!"

Ellen DeGeneres & Portia de Rossi Give a Tour of the Beverly Hills Home

There's plenty of fine art inside Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi's sweeping Beverly Hills home. But there are playful touches, too – like a glass Ping-Pong table in the entrance hall.

The couple invited Architectural Digest into the three-acre compound for this month's issue, and there's certainly plenty to see – a large painting by Andy Warhol and Jean-Michel Basquiat and loads of other artworks; tables, chairs, blankets and rugs from various continents and centuries; shoe shelves filled with sneakers and stilettos; and a luxurious pool out back with sweeping views of Los Angeles.

DeGeneres is like a kid in a candy store when it comes to real estate and interior design.

Looking at a photo of herself back when she weighed 82 pounds, Portia de Rossi can now admit she was sick.

"But at the time, I thought, 'Okay, my arms look awful so I should cover them up, but my legs look pretty okay now," says the actress, 37. "I didn't think I was crazy to only eat 300 calories a day. That made perfect sense to me."

In a new memoir, Unbearable Lightness: A Story of Loss and Gain, de Rossi comes clean about the years she spent battling anorexia and bulimia – after landing her breakthrough role on TV's Ally McBeal in 1998 – and the pressure she felt to hide the fact that she was gay.

Portia de Rossi is ready to share her story.

The Australian-born star, best known for her roles in Ally McBeal, Arrested Development, and most recently Better Off Ted, has signed a deal with Atria Books to publish a book chronicling her years of battling anorexia and bulimia in the public eye.

The book also will delve into de Rossi's newfound health and happiness after coming out as a lesbian and marrying Ellen DeGeneres in August 2008. Getting married "completely changed my life," de Rossi told PEOPLE last year. "It's so important to live an honest, open life and I didn't really realize that until I started doing it."
