FELICITY HUFFMAN’S AMAZING RACE
So how does Emmy-nominated actress FELICITY HUFFMAN shake off those award-day jitters? Running! Huffman and husband WILLIAM H. MACY got up before dawn Sept. 16 for a four-mile jaunt in the Nautica Malibu Triathlon to benefit the Childrens Hospital Los Angeles’s Pediatric Cancer Research Program. (Fellow nominee JON CRYER and Californication’s DAVID DUCHOVNY completed the run, a half-mile ocean swim and an 18-mile bike ride; Huffman skipped the biking and swimming.) “I actually added a minute and a half onto my time, so I feel absolutely fine,” Huffman tells Insider. “It wasn’t that hard.”
CLOONEY’S CHOICE WORDS
One way to get GEORGE CLOONEY to take a role: a little name dropping. The actor (who stars in next month’s thriller Michael Clayton) presented Ocean’s Eleven producer JERRY WEINTRAUB with a lifetime achievement award at the Boston Film Festival Sept. 16 and told how Weintraub persuaded him to join the heist caper. “He’d call me up and go: ‘Hey, Brad [Pitt] and Matt [Damon] are in it. You gotta do it!'”
In a private luxury suite at L.A.’s Staples Center Sept. 16, VICTORIA and DAVID BECKHAM caught a jamming Justin Timberlake concert. The twosome and concertgoers were surprised with an impromptu appearance by Kanye West, who performed a duet of “Stronger” with JT.
Seems like the feud on MTV’s The Hills is as real as it gets. HEIDI MONTAG, who was celebrating her 21st birthday at LAX in Las Vegas, tells Insider there is “no thought” of Lauren Conrad nor Brody Jenner being invited to her upcoming wedding to Spencer Pratt.
