Aubrey Plaza: Marketing Genius – or Drunk Stage Crasher?

Parks and Recreation actress Aubrey Plaza wanted all to notice her two eye-catching accessories at Sunday's MTV Movie Awards. They were a cocktail, and the words "#The To Do List" scrawled on her chest in what appeared to be black eyeliner.

Well, everyone did notice. And it got the actress kicked out of the ceremony after she crashed Will Ferrell's acceptance speech for Comedic Genius.

Mark Wahlberg Braces for Rebel Wilson's Barbs at MTV Movie Awards

Originally posted 04/14/2013 10:30AM

By the time host Rebel Wilson is done with everybody Mark Wahlberg expects to laugh, be surprised – and maybe be a little hurt – at this weekend's MTV Movie Awards.

"I think she may insult some people, but she is very, very funny," Wahlberg, 41, tells PEOPLE at Thursday night's Miami premiere of his movie Pain & Gain, presented by Grey Goose.

The actor certainly seems poised for a Wilson barb. He's nominated for best duo for being paired with a computer-animated bear voiced (profanely) by Seth MacFarlane in Ted. Wahlberg's up against a pal, Will Ferrell, nominated with Zach Galifianakis for The Campaign.

Will Ferrell Jokes: Kristen Stewart Is a 'Tramp-ire'

Originally posted 08/03/2012 10:25AM

For some fans of the Twilight franchise – also known as Twi-Hards – news that Kristen Stewart cheated on Robert Pattinson felt like their own personal heartbreak.

Also offering his tears: Will Ferrell.

"What they had was so special," the comedian, 45, deadpanned to Conan O'Brien on Thursday night's Conan. (Watch the video below.) "You don't even know what they had. They were in love, and she just threw it all away."

His tongue-in-cheek concerns continued: "I just don't know if there was anything I could have done to prevent it. And I don't know what it means to the Twilight franchise. I just don't know."

Gordon Ramsay Leaves Charity Soccer Game on a Stretcher

It was supposed to be a friendly affair, but Will Ferrell and Gordon Ramsay got more than they bargained for – the latter ended up in hospital – at a charity soccer game on Sunday that was rougher than anticipated.

The actor, 44, hobbled off with an apparent leg injury, while the celebrity chef, 45, had to be stretchered off and given oxygen after a clattering tackle by former pro player Teddy Sheringham at the annual Soccer Aid game in Manchester, England.

"Thx 4 all the messages. Out of hospital after receiving amazing care from medics at ground & hospital. Bit sore but fine," Ramsay wrote Monday on Twitter.

PEOPLE Review: Oscars Like Old Times – for Good and Bad

Originally posted 02/27/2012 01:00AM

Considering that last year's Oscars were so thumpingly bad – co-host James Franco behaved as if he'd been taken out of the freezer, left on the counter and unevenly thawed – last night's broadcast was a welcome relief.

The strength of the show ultimately rests on the heat of the biggest contests – I doubt Americans were on the edge of their seats wondering whether the cosmically inscrutable Tree of Life could score an upset over the French silent The Artist – but the production looked great and flowed well.

Billy Crystal was hosting for his ninth time, brought on after Eddie Murphy dropped out in November, and it felt no different from his seventh, eighth or (if one were to project) fifty-seventh time.

They're going public!

Kirsten Dunst wasn't shy with the PDA with new beau Garrett Hedlund at the Sundance Film Festival. The two were kissing and hugging at a dinner for Dunst's new movie, The Bachelorette, hosted by Joico and Simple House. The couple danced the night away with friends and fellow attendees, including Will Ferrell, who is one of the comedy's producers, Justin Long and Rashida Jones.

According to a partygoer at the WireImage tent, where the intimate dinner for 40 guests took place, Hedlund didn't really leave his girlfriend's side after the two made their late arrival. They also toasted to the film together.

Adds a source: "Kirsten and Garrett have been spending time together since the holidays. They were friends on the set of On the Road, and now they've grown closer. They spent Christmas together and he feels very strongly about her."

Poll: Who's the Best Hollywood Abraham Lincoln

Daniel Day-Lewis: Is He the Best Hollywood Abe Lincoln?

Originally posted 12/01/2011 07:00PM

Honestly, who's your favorite Abe?

The Internet is abuzz with a photo of Daniel Day-Lewis in a beard during filming of Lincoln, but he's certainly not the first to channel the 16th American president for Hollywood.

Going back to the silent era, the list is long and varied, including most famously Henry Fonda (beardless in Young Mr. Lincoln). But there are others, including two unlikely portrayers.

Will Ferrell goes for laughs in a Funny or Die video while Hank Azaria did it twice, on The Simpsons and Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian.
