Kirsten Dunst and Orlando Bloom, drinking vodka cocktails with friends at L.A. hot spot Hyde Lounge. “They were having a really good time,” says an onlooker “There wasn’t any romance between the pair, but they did laugh a lot.” On another night at Hyde, Lindsay Lohan and Paris Hilton arrived together “holding hands and giggling.” The duo chatted about the new Borat movie and danced to Ace of Base’s “The Sign.”

Leonardo DiCaprio, holding up his phone to get reception inside New York City club Butter. The actor – casual in a newsboy cap and Lacoste pullover – spent most of his time smoking, sipping on a drink and chatting with his Basketball Diaries costar Michael Rappaport. Also making the scene: Jamie-Lynn Sigler, who chilled in a banquette with boyfriend (and club owner) Scott Sartiano, Tyson Beckford and Cuba Gooding Jr., who danced with a woman to Beyoncé’s “Deja Vu.”

John Legend, singing an a cappella version of his song “Save Room” at the record release party for his sophomore album Once Again at New York City club PM. The R&B star partied alongside his brothers John and Vaughn and took pictures and gave hugs to fans. When Jay-Z’s “Encore” started playing, an excited Legend hopped on top of the banquette and started chanting “Hova, Hova!” along with the track. The club was so filled to capacity that Petra Nemcova and Russell Simmons patiently waited outside to get in.

A maternal Brenneman (who added gray to her locks) told her, “No, not that color, try this one” and “I would never let you go out of the house looking like that.”

Ashton Kutcher and Jeremy Piven, palling around at a Beverly Hills fete for the new 2007 Lexus 460 and 460 L. Piven told us that during his hiatus from Entourage, he’s “going inward.” “I want to see what happens if I don’t work. It’s like an experiment,” he said. “I love to travel a little bit. I want to read, I want to write, I want to chill. Kind of replenish my spirit a little bit, see what that’s like. Come back strong, bigger, badder and better than before.”
