Ashton Kutcher is eating light – and leafy – these days. When the actor and wife Demi Moore stopped in to Superior’s Steakhouse in Shreveport, La., he eschewed the prime rib and filet mignon for a meal of lettuce (yes, you read that right). “He asked for a wedge salad, no dressing, completely dry,” says Joel Wilemon, a bartender at the eatery. “That’s basically a quarter-head of lettuce.” Moore’s appetite was heartier and she indulged in a steak dinner.
Maybe the Punk’d star is slimming down for his action-adventure film The Guardian, which he’s filming in Shreveport. Meanwhile, Moore is there shooting the comedy Chlorine with David Arquette, and the newlyweds are renting a house in an upscale neighborhood.
Also making the scene in Shreveport: Sienna Miller and Jude Law. The two also tried to have a romantic meal at Superior’s Steakhouse recently, but their quiet dinner was interrupted after someone there called the local radio station and a flock of fans showed up. “We literally had people in their pajamas in the lobby with their cameras trying to get autographs,” says Wilemon. “We had to get security to get people out.” Miller is in town filming the Edie Sedgwick biopic Factory Girl.
Caught in the Act
• Nicole Richie (right), dancing with hair salon owner Byron Williams at his product launch party at the Chateau Marmont hotel in West Hollywood. The Simple Life star, who was there with girlfriends, was on a guest list that included Joy Bryant, Fred Durst and Eva Mendes.
• Sean “Diddy” Combs, hanging out with an entourage of 30 friends at Tao Asian Bistro in Las Vegas. When the hip-hop bigwig walked in, he said, “This place looks like my house in Miami!” Good eye: Turns out the restaurant’s architect, Tomas Schoos, also designed Diddy’s mansion. Also on hand: New York Yankees star Derek Jeter and Tommy Lee.
