Dustin Hoffman

Jolie & Black Kung Fu Panda At Cannes

Angelina Jolie, Dustin Hoffman and Jack Black attend the photocall for “Kung Fu Panda 2” at the 64th Cannes Film Festival. Jack is the human behind the voice of the Panda in the movie while Angelia Jolie is the Tigress.

Jolie said the movie, while having a Kung Fu Panda as the lead character, carries a message of non-violence. “It’s the one that doesn’t want to use violence” that saves the day according to the mom of 6.

Barney’s Version

Minnie Driver brightens up the carpet in a flame red strapless dress at Gala screening of Barney’s Version, part of the AFI FEST 2010 presented by Audi Centerpiece¬† at the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood.

Dustin Hoffman also smirked for the photographers along with his wife Lisa Gottsegen.  I must say, these two appear to be one of the happiest couples in Hollywood.

Lakers/Celtics Game Brings Out the Stars

Hey look, it’s Marky Mark! I flippin’ love that guy. He’s hotness personified, with a little bit of ghetto-fied street cred. And if there’s one thing you can never get enough of during the holidays, it’s hard liquor ghetto-fied street cred.

While I was out being a degenerate gambler at a West Virginia casino last night (now that was an experience I’ll never forget), Marky Mark, Andy Garcia, Denzel Washington, Dustin Hoffman and Samuel L. Jackson were out watching the Lakers/Celtics basketball game. Even Sinbad showed up, bringing with him his Santa-like belly and fierce leopord print towel. Don’t ask, because I don’t know either.

Anyway, the Lakers ended up winning the game. You know who else won last night? I DID! I came >thisclose< to getting into a fist fight with a geriatric woman over a 50 cent Wheel of Fortune slot machine, but I came out victorious. Maybe it’s because I threw her quarters bucket across the room, but whatev. A win is still a win, damnit.

I also hit the poker room, which was interesting. I kept expecting the WV natives to raise me a bowl of possum stew or a coon skin hat or something, but they didn’t. Turns out, they play with actual chips that represent actual cash money, not roadkill or gold teeth. Who’d have thought?

A very pregnant Angelina Jolie joined co-stars Dustin Hoffman and Jack Black at the photocall for Kung Fu Panda at the Cannes Film Festival today. While posing with Angelina, Dustin and Jack hammed it up for the cameras while pointing out her very large belly. Later, the two individually struck some poses, themselves. Black showed off his kung fu skills and Hoffman showed off his belly indicating he, too, could be pregnant. Ha!

Natalie Portman, Dustin Hoffman, Jason Bateman and Abigail and Spencer Breslin attended the premiere of Mr. Magorium’s Wonder Emporium last night in New York City.

In the film, Molly Mahoney (Portman) is the awkward and insecure manager of Mr. Magorium’s Wonder Emporium, the strangest, most fantastic, most wonderful toy store in the world. But when Mr. Magorium, the 243 year-old eccentric who owns the store (Hoffman), bequeaths the store to her, a dark and ominous change begins to take over.

The film is due in US theaters on November 16, 2007.
