Blonde beauty Malin Akerman enjoyed a night out at Chateau Marmont on Thursday night and showed off her long legs in a skin-tight black dress with a couple of interesting looking cutouts at the top. We're not very fond of the big black 'Y' shape at the top and think maybe if it were replaced by a nice necklace it would look a little better.

The Swedish-born "Watchmen" star will begin filming "The Giant Mechanical Man," in Detroit later this month with co-stars Jenna Fischer and Topher Grace. Fischer plays a zookeeper who falls in love with a street performer; and Akerman plays her sister,...

Katie Holmes is considering an icy plunge with the Polar Bear Club in Coney Island, New York after stripping off for a swim in her new movie "The Romantics."

The actress admits the thrill of hitting the waters of a New York lake wearing nothing but her underwear for a scene in the film was something she'd like to repeat for real - and so she's eyeing the Polar Bear Club's annual New Year's Day stunt.

Holmes prepared for the plunge by dancing with castmate Malin Akerman before heading into the winter waters, but breaking into a sweat did nothing to ease the big chill.

Model Suing 'Couples Retreat' Producers Loses

Couples Retreat
A bizarre defamation suit against the producers of Vince Vaughn comedy "Couples Retreat" has been thrown out of court in New York.

Former model Irina Krupnik claimed a snap of her in a bikini, used by one of the film's characters as a sexual aid, is actually a shot she sold to a picture agency in 2001.

In her suit, filed in March, Krupnik insisted she would never have allowed the "commonplace swimwear ad" to be used as "softcore pornography" - and she claimed the film was ruining her reputation.

But NBC Universal bosses maintained they had the rights to use the photo.

Many of the ladies sizzled on the red carpet at last night's Golden Globe Awards in Beverly Hills, Calif. Purple was a major pick of the evening, as Sandra Bullock, Fergie, Heidi Klum and Jane Krakowski demonstrated.

As usual black was a very popular color, and stars like Jennifer Aniston, Mariah Carey, Halle Berry, Heather Graham, Vera Farmiga and Penelope Cruz looked fab.

There wasn't a lot of bad fashion, although Tina Fey's billowing skirt was a bit too much, and Rita Wilson's flower pattern dress was simply too floral.

What did you think of last night's red carpet fashion? Who...
