ALAN ALDA'S INTEREST IN SCIENCE AND FAMILY

**** THE SATURDAY EVENING POST INTERVIEW ****
Alan Alda Saturday Evening Post Cover



Thanks to M*A*S*H, The West Wing and a slew of successful movies, Alan Alda now has his pick of writing and directing projects. But what he really wants to talk about is science. In the May/June issue of The Saturday Evening Post, on newsstands now, Alda shares tales of both acting and his new scientific endeavors to Post contributor Claudia Gryvatz Copquin.


Alda is perpetually in high demand for films and TV, but he is currently spending time as a visiting professor at Stony Brook University’s Center for Communicating Science. He helped form the department in 2009 to help scientists learn how to more effectively communicate their ideas.


On whether Alda has a dream team of actors or directors he would love to work with: “Woody Allen is brilliant. I loved being in the pictures of his that I was in, and I think Crimes and Misdemeanors is one of the best American pictures ever made. But, no, I never had a plan.…

STEVE & EDIE'S 'LOVE HAS COME FOR YOU'

Steve Martin



Steve & Edie ---I think I first saw comedian Steve Martin play a banjo about a dozen or so years ago. I couldn’t figure out if it was a goof or a legit move, but I do remember being terrifically impressed. I’m a guitarist and I know the banjo is not any easier. He’s dabbled with it throughout his career and last year released 2 very impressive albums (Rare Bird Alert and Crow) and, last week released, with singer Edie Brickell, of all people, a new album called Love Has Come For You .. which, in addition to being a full-fledged collaboration, I think is one of the best recorded efforts of the year so far.


 Last week they did all the chat shows (Letterman; The View; Today) and though they almost consistently performed the title track, they were nothing short of fantastic; even better live than on the album. Martin has always been somewhat of an enigma; reports have him at various times being overtly shy, but what a comic mind. …

KATE HUDSON'S SURPRISE LATE 34TH BIRTHDAY

**** STAR BIRTHDAY'S ****

Kate Hudson



The night before her 34th birthday, Kate Hudson told Us Weekly she had only one wish. "I just want to hang with my family," the Reluctant Fundamentalist actress said at the Tiffany & Co. Blue Book Ball Apr. 18.



Imagine Hudson's reaction two days later when her fiance, Matthew Bellamy, organized a secret bash in his bride-to-be's honor! "Kate was totally surprised," a source tells US Weekly of the soiree, held at a friend's place in New York City's West Village neighborhood. "The party started outside, but it was freezing so people moved inside and danced."



Famous attendees included Cameron Diaz, Judd Apatow and Leslie Mann (who coincidentally met up with Reese Witherspoon at Manhattan's Greenwich Hotel just days after her Apr. 19 arrest). "Kate loves to dance and she was just really happy talking to everyone," a source reveals. "She looked beautiful and beaming in a tight metallic …
