Michael Tran/FilmMagicGetting Mila Kunis to be your date for anything is the equivalent of winning the lottery, really. Hence the can't-believe-my-luck grin on Sgt. Scott Moore's face while escorting Kunis to the Marine Corps Ball in Greenville, North Carolina, over the weekend. See People's website for the photo evidence. The 28-year-old actress -- sporting a classic black dress and Audrey Hepburn bangs -- "was very nice and very respectful," a Marine who attended the event tells the magazine. "She gets credit and a lot of respect for coming here, not being part of this world and following through on her word." Moore kicked off a trend last summer when he invited Kunis to the Marine Ball on YouTube; officer Kelsey De Santis followed suit with Justin Timberlake, and the "SexyBack" singer graciously accepted. "I didn't bring it on the dance floor," De Santis said after taking Timberlake to the Nov. 12 Instructor Battalion Ball in Virginia. "But the entire night was bringing sexy back, I guess you couldRead More »from Mila Kunis: Belle Of The Marine Ball

Stephen Lovekin/Getty ImagesThe unsolved mystery surrounding the 1981 death of Natalie Wood is coming back to haunt Christopher Walken. The Hollywood Reporter says the actor has hired a lawyer following the reopening of an investigation into what happened the night Wood went missing from a boat off the coast of Catalina Island; she'd been partying aboard the "Splendour" with Walken, her co-star in the movie "Brainstorm," and Robert Wagner, her husband. The "West Side Story" star's lifeless body was later found floating a mile away in the ocean.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, Walken's attorney, Mathew Rosengart, will advise him on the case; meanwhile, Walken is expected to cooperate fully with authorities. Wagner is reportedly not a suspect, although Wood's sister and the boat captain hold the 81-year-old actor responsible. The death was initially ruled an accidental drowning.

"That was doomed from the beginning, I'm afraid," Pinsky told The Famous in an interview Friday afternoon. "And it's sad. But then they tried to make it work. I believe they really gave it a good try but this was so deeply flawed. The setup was so not going to work that it eventually came around and go 'em."Read More »from Dr. Drew Pinsky: Ashton And Demi Were ‘Doomed From The Beginning’

Men's HealthSo Ashton Kutcher is on the cover of Men's Heath, looking kind of guilty (yes, we're probably reading too much into it). In an interview with the abs-obsessed magazine's sister title, Women's Health, Kutcher gives an intriguing fill-in-the-blank response to the phrase "I could never be with a woman who ... ":
Wow, that's tough. I could never be with a woman who felt like she needed to change me. ... I would just like a woman someday, somewhere, at some point in my life to say to me, "You're a great listener." Haven't heard it yet, and that's a superior compliment to get from a woman. But I'm going to work on it.
Active listening = something Kutcher needs to work on.

Behold this waxen tribute to the young puppy love of Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez: It's creepy, but pretty darn lifelike, we have to say. And just in time for the holiday season! Madame Tussauds in New York has it finger on the pulse of Biebermania-slash-America because the purveyor of mildly unsettling -- and surprisingly human-looking -- wax statues of famous people made the shrewd decision to capitalize on the combined Bieber-Gomez star power, thereby baiting the hearts -- and wallets -- of tween tourists. (Bizarro Bieber's faraway expression suggests he has other things on his mind besides Gomez, however.)

Jim Spellman/WireImageFor the first time in a long time, Demi Moore is a single lady. Once the divorce goes through she'll no longer be Mrs. Ashton Kutcher, and that spells the end of a huge part of her identity: Sexy Older Woman Married To Hot Younger Man. Which begs the question: what's next for Moore?
The 49-year-old actress is certainly keeping busy with film projects. She has an indie movie, "Another Happy Day," opening today. The drama centers on a dysfunctional family reuniting for a wedding, and Moore plays the belligerent second wife of Thomas Haden Church's character. (Watch out for her violent fight scene with Ellen Barkin, who portrays his first wife.)Read More »from Demi Moore’s Divorce: What’s Her Next Step?

Loose translation: "Ashton cheated on me, and I reserve first dibs on filing for divorce and announcing to the world that I dumped his shady (bleep)."Read More »from Demi Moore Divorcing Ashton Kutcher

Two weeks ago, Buzzfeed organized a mock vigil in front of the Kardashian-owned DASH boutique in New York City following the tragic divorshian news. Today the site gathered Ryan Gosling fans together to protest outside People magazine's Manhattan headquarters. Why? Because editors crowned Bradley Cooper this year's "Sexiest Man Alive" rather than The Gos, who is far more popular and pancake portrait-worthy.
The best cardboard sign slogan: "Ryan Gosling Is Proof There's A God And She Is A Woman." And here's a video of the protest in action:Read More »from Ryan Gosling Fans Protest ‘Sexiest Man Alive’ Snub
