***For Testing Purposes*** Best of the Toronto Film Fest
When they didn't have eyes for each other, Jennifer Lopez and husband Marc Anthony shared their pride over their labor of love, the biopic El Cantante, at the festival. Lopez, who also co-produced the film about salsa legend Hector Lavoe, said of working with Anthony, "It was a passion project for both of us."
Volver vixen Penélope Cruz shows off her signature sophistication – whether on the street in a sweet floral frock or dazzling on the red carpet in one-shouldered Azzaro.
Ocean's Thirteen pals Matt Damon and Brad Pitt, in town for Babel, head up the hottest party in town at Toronto's Carlu Hall – all for a worthy cause. The bash, which drew the likes of Penélope Cruz and Wyclef Jean, raised over $2 million for Canada's One X One and the U.S.-based Millennium Promise, two groups fighting global poverty.
Ashton Kutcher – at the film fest to promote The Guardian – takes in the scene up north with wife Demi Moore before the jet-setting duo headed back stateside to New York's Fashion Week.
Beep beep! Heath Ledger (whose film Candy premiered in Toronto) demonstrates how to make one's way through street traffic – hand signals! Though the actor made the trip solo, he had daughter Maltilda on the brain: He swung by the swag-filled Luxury Lounge to pick up Hatley baby clothes for his 10-month-old.
Who needs critics when you have fans? The verdict may be out on Rachel Weisz's new film The Fountain, but the new mom (to 3-month-old Henry) is clearly a winner among the well-wishers at her premiere.
Jude Law gets the best spot in town – in between his two leading ladies Robin Wright Penn and Juliette Binoche from the drama Breaking and Entering. The actor, who also debuted All the King's Men at the fest, had another lady in waiting up north: girlfriend Sienna Miller, who made the party scene but didn't hit the red carpet with her beau.
The Last King of Scotland stars (from left) James McAvoy, Forest Whitaker and Kerry Washington get wrapped up in their off-screen chemistry before they continue the laughs at hip restaurant George prior to their film's premiere.
Hitting the festival as a producer for Penelope, Reese Witherspoon can't hide her star quality in this midnight-blue Nina Ricci slipdress.
Jacinda Barrett may find humor in sharing the spotlight with her funnyman costar Zach Braff, but the comedian plays it straight (sort of) at the premiere of their romantic drama, The Last Kiss.
Braff's costar in The Last Kiss, Rachel Bilson, sticks to an ultra-mod palette of black, white and red for simply stylish dresses by Reyes (left) and Chanel.
HE HAS ARRIVED!
Toronto by way of peasant pullcart is the way Kazakhstan's most novel export Borat (a.k.a. comedian Sacha Baron Cohen) likes to roll as he makes his way to the premiere of his self-titled movie.
