Robert Pattinson may have been photographed moving his belongings out of Kristen Stewart's Los Angeles home on Monday, but that didn't keep the Twilight star from a night out with friends.
The actor was "all smiles" when he stepped out at Teddy's at the Roosevelt Hotel in Hollywood, an onlooker tells PEOPLE.
Arriving with a group of friends just after 1 a.m., Pattinson – who wore jeans, a white T-shirt, a black leather jacket and a backwards red Indiana Hoosiers baseball cap – headed to the back of the club to relax at a corner table.
"He sat on the couch at his table and sipped on multiple vodka cocktails throughout the evening," the source adds. "You'd never know he had just gone through a breakup. He was smiling the entire night and was in a really good mood. There wasn't a trace of sadness on his face."
While he was tucked away in the corner of the club, only a handful of patrons recognized him. "He spent most of the night chatting with a brunette," the source says. "There was definitely some flirting going on but it was all just talking, there was nothing physical going on between them and they never touched each other."
Glee‘s fourth season may have just wrapped, but Jenna Ushkowitz, who plays Tina on the show, isn’t slowing down. She just released a book, Choosing Glee: 10 Rules to Finding Inspiration, Happiness, and the Real You, which is part scrapbook memoir and part teen advice book with anecdotes and tips about being yourself, achieving your goals and having confidence in your abilities. “It’s always been on my bucket list to write a book,” Ushkowitz said. “It sort of organically happened. I wrote this treatment in like 24 hours. The main 10 rules kept popping up over and over again, so that’s where we found the streamline for it.”
Gleeks will be excited to learn that the book has tips from the whole McKinley High crew, and even includes a letter from Ushkowitz to Tina. “I think some of the things I [hope for her are] to take risks and to not take everything so seriously,” Ushkowitz explains about her dreams for her character. “Make sure you tell people how you feel and to laugh everyday!”
Check out Ushkowitz laughing herself when she takes EW’s Pop Culture Personality Test — and fills us in on the movie she has to watch every time it’s on cable and her most prized pop culture possession — below.
'Glee' star Jenna Ushkowitz talks the power of positivity and her new book 'Choosing Glee'
Is happiness something that happens to you, or something that you make happen for yourself? If you ask “Glee’s” Jenna Ushkowitz that question, she’ll tell you it’s the latter.
In fact, she’s written the book on finding your own glee through the power of self-affirmation and positive thinking. “Choosing Glee: 10 Rules to Finding Inspiration, Happiness, and the Real You” is part memoir, part self-help tome, and all motivational. Written through anecdotal vignettes, personal photos, lists and charts, “Choosing Glee” is Ushkowitz’ way of giving back to the world, putting out positivity as a means of reaping more good vibes. “I like to think that positivity is a choice, and you wake up and make a conscious decision,” says the 27-year-old actress. And though she admits, “I’ve never been through any really dark times where I hit rock bottom,” she seems to know what she’s talking about.
Normally, you work your way into the off-the-wall questions with movie stars. But with Josh Hutcherson, the big one is just hanging there, demanding to be asked:
“How often does the average 12- to 19-year-old girl come up to you and propose marriage?”
The 20 year-old “Hunger Games” hunk, nicknamed “our Boy with the Bread” on some of the many fansites devoted to showing their devotion (Iheartjosh.net, josh-h.com, welcometodistrict12), takes it all in stride.
“More often than you think,” he cracks. “I get it. I get it. It’s the CHARACTER they’re in love with, right?”
Right. Well, maybe. A Kentucky native, a child star since “The Bridge to Terabithia” and “Journey to the Center of the Earth,” an actor of some repute since “The Kids are All Right,” Hutcherson’s world was rocked from the day he was cast as Peeta Mellark, love interest to archer-heroine Katniss Everdeen in “The Hunger Games.” The movie was a teen-girl driven blockbuster, selling millions of tickets and millions of copies of the books and fan magazines about the series.
In the new movie economy, you can't just promote your new movie by releasing a trailer. This year especially, it's been all about gimmicks and Vine trailers. Not one to miss out, Joseph Gordon-Levitt is getting very gimmicky in a very personal way for his directorial debut. He announced today on his Twitter feed that he's started a new account for Jon Martello, the porn-addicted protagonist of his movie Don Jon, which he also wrote. Taking on a fictional persona is by no means anything new on Twitter, but it will be interesting to see how this works as a promotional tool. So far? Not that well, which doesn't necessarily bode well for the film itself.
Jon, a Jersey Shore kind of guy, is an against-type character for the manic pixie indie boy turned superhero Gordon-Levitt, and his tweets look like he's frenetically straining in the role.
Gordon-Levitt is just being too self-referential. He tries to distance himself from the character by calling himself a "pussy ass kid actor" and saying that he was in 30 Rock—when he was in 3rd Rock from the Sun. But that just makes the audience more conscious that Gordon-Levitt himself is playing this for laughs. Are you laughing?
The film, which also stars Scarlett Johansson, premiered at Sundance to mixed reviews. The Hollywood Reporter wrote that "both as a director and actor, Gordon-Levitt is switched on all the time, offering little shading or nuance." The Twitter account indicates that as well.
We'll get a better idea of what this movie looks like tomorrow when the trailer comes out. Oh yeah, Jon let that slip. The movie is due out in October.
Brad Pitt won't remember you. If you've met him, he'll have no idea who you are when he meets you again. Even if you've had what he calls "a real conversation," your face will start fading from his memory as soon as you walk away. He'll try to hold on to its outlines, but your features will suffer an inexorable erasure, and the next time he sees you you'll be brand-new to him. He used to try tricking those he'd forgotten into thinking he remembered them, or at least waiting them out for a clue or scrap of context. But then he decided to experiment.
"So many people hate me because they think I'm disrespecting them," he says. "So I swear to God, I took one year where I just said, This year, I'm just going to cop to it and say to people, 'Okay, where did we meet?' But it just got worse. People were more offended. Every now and then, someone will give me context, and I'll say, 'Thank you for helping me.' But I piss more people off. You get this thing, like, 'You're being egotistical. You're being conceited.' But it's a mystery to me, man. I can't grasp a face and yet I come from such a design/aesthetic point of view. I am going to get it tested."
He is convinced he has that thing, that condition he read about a few years ago. What's it called? Is he pronouncing it right? That's it: prosopagnosia. It's gotten to the point where he doesn't even like going out — "that's why I stay at home" — but he's also a public person, the center of crowds. "You meet so many damned people," he says. "And then you meet 'em again."
On changing the direction of his life: “I’d get so far and then want to do something else. I mean, I’m two credits short of graduating college. Two credits. All I had to do was write a paper. What kind of guy is that? That guy scares me – the guy who always leaves a little on his plate. For a long time I thought I did too much damage – drug damage. I was a bit of a drifter. A guy who felt he grew up in something of a vacuum and wanted to see things, wanted to be inspired. I followed that other thing. I spent years f–king off. But then I got burnt out and felt that I was wasting my opportunity. It was a conscious change. This was about a decade ago. It was an epiphany – a decision not to squander my opportunities. It was a feeling of get up. Because otherwise, what’s the point?”
Hayden Christensen is set to star in the indie spy thriller “Inner Circle” in a co-production between Christensen’s newly minted Glacier Films, Original Entertainment and Hartland Entertainment.
Original Entertainment heads Daljit DJ Parmar and Hunt Lowry will produce with Christensen and his brother Tove Christensen and Leonard Hartman. Luke Daniels is exec producing.
Production on the $10 million movie has been scheduled for late this year in Europe.
Mohit Ramchandani will make his feature directing debut, helming from a Leonard Hartman script. Christensen will portray a CIA analyst, who while looking for answers about the disappearance of his father, a Cold War spy, is sucked into a web of murder and intrigue by a secretive organization inside the government.
Project was announced at Cannes on Monday, four days after the Christensens unveiled the launch of Glacier Films with an 11-picture slate scheduled over the next three years. The slate consists of six films with budgets in the $10 million range, plus five microbudget titles ranging around $1.5 million each.
Original Entertainment had announced May 15 that it had closed a five-picture deal with Millennium Films for Bollywood remakes of “Rambo,” “The Expendables,” “16 Blocks,” “88 Minutes” and “Brooklyn’s Finest.”
Hayden Christensen is repped by Bill Choi and Chris Huvane at Management 360.
