Caught in the Act!

Posted on

Denise Richards, sharing a day of mother-daughter bonding in Malibu. The actress – who had daughters Lola, 21 months, and Sam, 3, scooped up in her arms, one of her favorite holding patterns – frolicked with her girls at a local playground.

Ashley Olsen, showing off her sexy black boots for pal Megan Mullally at the Chateau Marmont hotel in West Hollywood. Olsen arrived with a group of friends and proceeded to Mullally’s table on the patio, where she put her foot up and rolled up her jeans as the former Will & Grace star squealed with delight.

Jeremy Piven, shopping for magazines with a pal at a Borders bookstore in Hollywood. And what was Ari reading? The Entourage actor picked up Rolling Stone and Details.

Beverly Hills Hotel
Diana Ross, checking out a pair of black leggings at West Hollywood boutique Maxfield. Perhaps the singer was searching for an on-camera outfit: The Supreme diva will appear on American Idol on March 13 as a mentor to the Top 12 contestants.

Reese Witherspoon, playfully reenacting her famous Legally Blonde pose with a fellow diner’s pet Chihuahua while lunching with a pal at the Polo Lounge in The Beverly Hills Hotel. Witherspoon, who ate a salad, greeted the pooch after she finished her meal.

Thursday’s Caught in the Act! >

Fergie
Fergie, jogging along the beach during her Mexican getaway with boyfriend Josh Duhamel. The Black Eyed Peas singer has also made time for plenty of R&R during her romantic trip.

Lindsay Lohan, chatting and laughing with Paris and Nicky Hilton and several friends in a VIP booth at West Hollywood lounge Winston’s. Lohan also had some special requests for the deejay: Olivia Newton-John’s “Deeper Than the Night” and Pat Benatar’s “We Belong.” Also making the scene: Kimberly Stewart, partying at the other end of the bar with two girlfriends.

Sacha Baron Cohen, trying to speak to his waiter in Japanese at Beverly Hills eatery Matsuhisa. Though Baron Cohen wasn’t exactly fluent – he ended up communicating mostly through body language and hand signals – the waiter was amused. Despite all of the comedian’s efforts, his friend ended up doing the ordering – in English. On the table: a cucumber roll and asparagus tempura.

Nick Lachey, sharing a guys’ night out with football-star pal Matt Leinart and other buddies at L.A. club Privilege. While various groups of women walked up to the table, Lachey and Leinart were too busy having vodka cocktails and catching up with each other to notice.

Ona
Hilary Swank, looking very rested after leaving Ona Spa in Hollywood. The actress got an Environ facial, which she told the staff “was simply amazing,” a source tells us. She also sipped on Goji juice, a berry drink that comes from the Himalayas. “She was in good spirits” – and left a generous tip, says the source.

Naomi Watts
Naomi Watts, keeping her baby bump warm in a bulky down coat and scarf while toting a shopping bag in New York City.

Leonardo DiCaprio, sharing breakfast with his grandmother at seafood restaurant Gladstone’s in Malibu. The Oscar-nominated star was quite the model grandson, clutching his grandma’s arm to help her as the two left the restaurant. Awww.

Christina Aguilera, celebrating at L.A.’s Hyde Lounge after her sold-out show at L.A.’s Staples Center. The pop diva partied with husband Jordan Bratman and an entourage of 30, including members of the Pussycat Dolls. After pouring a dozen glasses of Taittinger champagne for her guests, Aguilera made a toast to her fellow revelers. Earlier at the concert, Dancing with the Stars judge Carrie Ann Inaba sang along and danced to “Ain’t No Other Man.”

Adrian Grenier, loading coffee into his Volkswagen Jetta at a Starbucks in Hollywood. The Entourage star ordered so much java that he needed assistance from an employee to bring it to his car.

Orso
Lindsay Lohan, dining with deejay pal Samantha Ronson and another female friend at L.A. eatery Orso. The trio nibbled on cold poached salmon and asparagus with basil sauce on the outdoor patio. Later, the actress headed to West Hollywood lounge Winston’s, where she sipped bottled water and spent the evening laughing and emailing on her BlackBerry.

Reese Witherspoon
Reese Witherspoon, multitasking during a day out in Beverly Hills. The tank-top-sporting actress juggled a water bottle and her BlackBerry as she ran errands.

Eva Longoria, giggling with a female friend over a dinner of fresh eel sashimi at West Hollywood restaurant Koi.

Justin Timberlake, partying with Timbaland, Usher and Missy Elliott at Ghostbar in Dallas following his sold-out concert. The “SexyBack” singer worked the deejay booth and even did a little beat-boxing.

Hooters
Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown, having a family meal with daughter Bobbi Kristina at Mr. Chow in Beverly Hills. The trio ate shrimp fried rice and white prawns. “Whitney and Bobby were focused on their daughter,” a diner told us. “(They) looked very comfortable and relaxed with each other.”

Bono, signing a guitar for a fan in the foyer of a Hooters restaurant in Hollywood. The U2 frontman, who wore one of his Gap INSPI(RED) T-shirts, obliged the axe-toting admirer’s request and then was seated with two pals. A round of wings for everyone!
