DINNER FOR JENNIFER LAWRENCE & JUSTIN THEROUX

Jennifer Lawrence




E! NEWS -- Jennifer Lawrence hosted a star-studded dinner at her place in New York City.


The Oscar winner had pals Emma Stone and Justin Theroux over to enjoy a meal on the rooftop of her apartment on Monday evening. "They were eating and drinking and looking at the view and taking selfies," the insider tells us of the dinner party, which lasted for a few hours.


After wrapping up their meal, the group, which included journalist Derek Blasberg, then headed back inside Lawrence's apartment. Theroux was later photographed leaving Lawrence's apartment with his new dog Kuma around midnight. Just days earlier, Theroux introduced his new pup to his Instagram followers.


"MEET KUMA," the actor wrote alongside a picture of Kuma. "There are too many people to thank for Kuma.... @jesslee81 and William and everyone @chancetobloom You are the heroes who took Kuma from death and loved her back to life. Also @austinpetsalive for steering me towards a new adoption."


This friend dinner comes just about two weeks after Theroux and Stone were spotted hanging out together on vacation in the south of France. The duo, who co-star in the upcoming Netflix series Maniac, were photographed at the at Hotel du Cap-Eden Rock alongside Blasberg, Sienna Miller and actress Laura Harrier at the end of May.


That same week, 29-year-old Stone and 46-year-old Theroux also separately attended the Louis Vuitton Cruise fashion show. And while there might be speculation surrounding the duo after they've been spotted together on several occasions recently, a source told us in May that Stone and Theroux "are just friends." But another source did note that Theroux is "casually dating" after splitting with Jennifer Aniston in February.


As for dinner host Lawrence, she's rumored to have a new boyfriend. Reports surfaced just last week that the 27-year-old actress is dating 33-year-old art gallerist Cooke Maroney.

SEVENTEEN TALKS TO EMMA STONE ABOUT CONFIDENCE

Emma Stone




Emma Stone, star of the Amazing Spider-Man 2, recently opened up to Seventeen.com about the film, dealing with haters, body image, and girl power.




Emma Stone on dealing with haters…



“Sometimes it's really easy to shrug it off and other times, things have pinched more. I think most of us are like that, right? Someone lobs a snide remark your way, and sometimes you can laugh about it, while other times you can actually feel the sting. I'm actively working hard on learning to appreciate yourself no matter what. If what someone else says can easily derail you, it means your sense of self isn't that firmly established in the first place. It's an inside job. You're beautiful and worthy and totally unique. People insult each other based on their own insecurities—even though it may feel personal, it really never is. Really. Seriously.”



Emma Stone on body confidence...



“It can be really challenging in today's world for anyone—especially girls and women—to feel good about their bodies. No matter how things look from the outside, we can all be super critical of ourselves and of our image in the mirror. I've seen articles or comments that have addressed my weight, or ‘caving to pressure to be thin.’ Keeping weight on is a struggle for me— especially when I'm under stress, and especially as I've gotten older. That's the way my genes have decided to go, and things will change as time goes on, as does everything. So when completely untrue statements are made about me or my health, of course a part of me wants to defend. Thing is, people have a right to imagine what they want to imagine. My job at those moments is to tell myself the truth. Am I taking care of myself in a healthy way? Am I respecting myself and being responsible? And over and over, I answer yes to that question. Then I remind myself to be kind to myself, and as slightly ridiculous as it may sound, to treat myself in the same gentle way I'd want to treat a daughter of mine. It really helps.”



Emma Stone on what makes her feel powerful… 



“Wanting something, putting all my energy toward it, working hard and following through. New things I never knew I could do. Commitment. Making somebody laugh—there's no better feeling than that.”

JAMES MCCARTNEY A GEM AT NEW CUTTING ROOM

****
THE GLORIOUS CORNER

Story By: G.H. Harding
****

James McCartney



THE SON ALSO RISES --- No question, the show of the week was James McCartney at The Cutting Room. James, the son of Paul and Linda, had embarked on a solo tour that brought him to NYC. Monday night, he was the musical guest on David Letterman, and performed “Wisteria” from his new album entitled Me; and, tracks from his earlier albums, Available Light and Close At Hand. As with his performance at The Cutting Room the next night; he brings his delightful, delicate voice to his music, which has been clearly and meticulously written and performed. Honestly, to me, he sounds more like Al Stewart (“Year Of the Cat”) than papa-Paul. 


Face it; to be a sibling of a superstar can't be easy; Dylan’s son Jacob, after his great song “One Head Light” more or less faded from the scene. James is competent for sure; and, maybe even a bit too polished … but, I enjoyed him. His cover of Neil Young’s Old Man was terrific. The pack room at the club listened intently to every word … and, every note he played.


It was nice to be back at the club too; their original spot on 24th street in NYC was the scene of many a memorable concert. This new location is huge; with better dressing rooms, the same caliber sound system; an upstairs; and, terrific art scattered throughout the club. Owner Steve Walter, has clearly put his heart and soul into the development of this club. His touch in on everything. Seen in the crowd this night were Billy Amendola (Modern Drummer magazine); Susan Hathaway; PR-gadfly David Salidor; Carol Strauss-Klenfner; photographer Derek Storm; and, Ida Langsam. Great night.



Emma Stone



BALDWIN CROWED --- Alec Baldwin has signed on for the new movie from director/writer extraordinaire Cameron Crowe. According to producer Scott Rudin, the cast in addition to Baldwin, will be Bradley Cooper, Emma Stone, Rachel McAdams and Danny McBride. Baldwin, currently drawing raves in the new Woody Allen movie Blue Jasmine (which so far is duplicating the success of his Midnight In Paris movie) is a wild-card for sure; but, an audience favorite. 


Crowe, the visionary director of such brilliant movies as Vanilla Sky, Jerry Maguire and Almost Famous, started out as a writer for Rolling Stone magazine. Baldwin: personally, I loved him in the great movie Departed … not so much in those current, cheesy Capital One commercials. Currently untitled, look for it in 2014.



BEE GEES --- Love them or hate them … everyone knows a Bee Gees song. Their earliest songs (“I Started A Joke”) were brilliant; lush harmonies and intricate, creative arrangements and productions; no one really had heard anything like that. They were a slam dunk even back then. One day in their studio, their new producer Arif Mardin, asked Barry Gibb is he could sing an octave higher. Thus, history was made and the resulting performances, from their brilliant Main Course album to their legendary songs for the movie Saturday Night Fever … made the brothers Gibb immediate superstars and multi-millionaires. 


Yet, for all the success they enjoyed, there were dark problems behind the facade. The two beta brothers Robin and Maurice, rallied against the domineering style of alpha-brother Barry. In his new book (Bee Gees/Biography), author David N. Meyer, chronicles their rise, from abject-poverty, to the high-life in Miami. One quick fact I found totally interesting; when they arrived in Miami, they bought an old warehouse/rehearsal space from none other than Henry Stone, then fronting his TK Records, which became one of leading dance labels in the country, and made it into their own recording studio, re-christened Middle Ear studios. 


Robin, who has since passed, as well as brother Maurice too, wonders at one point if all their problems were due to the amazing degree of success they achieved. Interesting point for sure. Barry, the last Gibb Brother standing, ends with a solo performance in Florida; well received, but missing his brothers on stage. All sad … and, all true. Great read for sure.

SETH MACFARLANE & EMMA STONE HOST OSCAR

****
AND THE OSCAR NOMINATIONS ARE?
****

Helen Mirren



ABC News will provide live, anchored digital coverage of the 2013 Oscar Nominations tomorrow morning at 8:36a.m.ET. ABC News’ Dan Kloeffler will anchor live coverage from New York, along with analysis from Rolling Stone movie critic Peter Travers and Yahoo! News’s Phoebe Connelly in Washington, D.C.


The wait is nearly over. After months of speculation and second-guessing, Seth MacFarlane and Emma Stone will reveal the 2013 Oscar nominations Thursday.

It has been a very good year for movies, not to mention a diverse one.

"You have these serious movies like 'Zero Dark Thirty' and 'Lincoln.' Then there's 'Argo' in the middle and 'Les Miserables' and 'Silver Linings Playbook' on the other end," Yahoo! Movies contributing editor Thelma Adams told ABCNews.com. "It's almost like apples and oranges. How do you compare?"

That's the job of the Academy. But it won't stop us from guessing who will make the cut.



Best Picture



Adams' picks: "Lincoln," "Zero Dark Thirty," "Argo," "Les Miserables," "Silver Linings Playbook," Amour," "Django Unchained," "Beasts of the Southern Wild," "Skyfall" and "Life of Pi" Adams says there's a break between the films in the top 5, which are a definite shoo-in, and the ones that follow, which are less certain. She believes "Skyfall" will make the list as the one Hollywood blockbuster, especially after the blessing from the Producers Guild of America. "Beasts" and "Moonrise Kingdom," two indies that also received PGA nods, are more of a toss-up." "Lincoln" is the current favorite, with "Zero Dark Thirty" filmmakers on the defensive about the torture scenes and the congressional inquiry into the film. If those two films go head-to-head, it's possible that "Argo" could slip through to win best picture, Adams said. "No one has anything bad to say about 'Argo,'" she said.


Best Actor



Adams' picks: Daniel Day-Lewis ("Lincoln"), Bradley Cooper ("Silver Linings Playbook"), Hugh Jackman ("Les Miserables"), Denzel Washington ("Flight") and John Hawkes ("The Sessions") "It's such a lock, it's pathetic," Adams said of presumed front-runner Day-Lewis. Waiting in the wings as possible nominees: Bill Murray for his FDR portrayal in "Hyde Park" and "Joaquin Phoenix" for "The Master."


Best Actress



Adams' picks: Jessica Chastain ("Zero Dark Thirty"), Jennifer Lawrence ("Silver Linings Playbook"), Marion Cotillard ("Rust and Bone"), Naomi Watts ("The Impossible") and Emmanuelle Riva ("Amour") "This one is tricky," Adams said. Beyond front-runners Chastain and Lawrence, there's less certainty. Surprise child star Quvenzhane Wallis from "Beasts of the Southern Wild" could earn a nod, although Adams doesn't see her ultimately winning. Rachel Weisz for "The Deep Blue Sea," Helen Mirren for "Hitchcock" and Kiera Knightley for "Anna Karenina" are potential upstarts.
