their estate in Figline Valdarno where they made wine and gave others the
opportunity to harvest from their vineyard.

The Hangover star was filming a scene outside of the Langham hotel and was dressed in a black leather jacket and black jeans. The actor hid his eyes under a pair of aviators but looked to be in a great mood whilst on the set.

As the film is about food the 39 year-old has reportedly been getting some cooking tips from TV chef Gordon Ramsay. Bradley even went to a fast food restaurant with his co-star Sienna Miller in a bid to make his performance in the movie more authentic.

Victoria Beckham in LA.

No matter what Victoria Beckham wears the former Spice Girl always looks stylish. VB proved just this as she jetted out of LAX to catch a plane home to England looking like the ultimate fashionista.

The singer turned fashion designer worked a Grateful Dead T-shirt , which sported writing and a yellow skull. The 40 year-old had teamed her band tribute tee with a pair of charcoal grey skinny jeans that perfectly showed off her slender pins.

Of course in true Mrs. Beckham style Victoria was wearing high heels and the brunette beauty covered her eyes from the flashing lights with a cool pair of shades.

Meanwhile Mr. Beckham is back in California on dad duty as he was snapped grabbing some health drinks at Juice Crafters.

Kris Jenner clearly loves being a lady that
lunches.  The Keeping Up With the
Kardashians’ star had a big smile on her face as she left Cecconi’s restaurant in
LA with Superman star Dean Cain.

The 58 year-old momager left the
fine dining venue with Dean looking a bit like Superman herself as her top went
cape like after catching a gust of wind.

The head of the Kardashian clan was actually
going for a leather look as she teamed her crisp white top with a pair of skinny
leather trousers, matching boots and a fringed bag.

Despite the lunch soiree being over Kris
still had a lot to smile about as she bid Mr. Cain farewell with a friendly
peck on the cheek.

It’s non-stop for Jennifer Aniston

It was a busy day for Jennifer Aniston as she arrived at the Jimmy Kimmel Live studios for a guest appearance.

This wasn’t any guest appearance though as the We’re the Millers actress took part in a Friends skit on the show with her former co-stars Courteney Cox and Lisa Kudrow.

The 45 year-old then left the Jimmy Kimmel studios red carpet ready in a little sparkly dress for the premiere of her new movie Life of Crime.

Jen looked sensational in the slinky sequined dress and showed off her new darker locks. The actress may have been booed by fans for not stopping to sign a few autographs but at least the star gave a classic Jennifer Aniston wave.

Life’s a beach for Gerard Butler

Laird Hamilton surfing.

Life’s a beach for surfing enthusiast Gerard Butler as the Hollywood hunk headed over to Malibu beach to watch surfing ace Laird Hamilton.  

The PS I Love You Star is usually the one showing off his skills in the water but this time the 44 year-old looked happy to take a back seat and watch someone else ride the waves.

Before making time for his fans the Scottish star looked so impressed with the surfer’s skills that he whipped out his own camera to take a few snaps. No doubt fans of the movie star are hoping that next time it will be Mr. Butler on the board.

Kimye enjoy a dinner date

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West enjoy a dinner date.

Kim Kardashian and Kayne West have been so
busy with their own careers lately that they aren’t often snapped together.
That all changed though as the “world’s most talked about couple” stepped out
in LA for a date at The Little Door restaurant.

As always Kim K looked immaculate in a
plunging long sleeve cutout top that she teamed with a long cream skirt. The 33
year-old then completed her dinner date look with a pair of pretty gold

North West’s daddy was more casually
dressed for the occasion in a pair of jeans and a classic white tee, which he
had layered underneath a checked red shirt.

Reality TV star Kim even gave a rare sight
of a smile as she left the swanky restaurant. Some quality time with her rapper
beau was obviously just what Kimmy needed.
