Linsday Lohan prepares to board a flight from Los Angeles International Airport on Thursday. Perhaps the actress's two-color process (from strawberry blonde to true blonde) in two days was in preparation for her new destination.
HUGGING IT OUT
Mark Wahlberg and Jeremy Piven form a two-man entourage at the L.A. premiere of Shooter at the Mann Village Theatre on Thursday.

ROLL WITH IT

PHONE A FRIEND

A GOOD SPORT
Eva Longoria doesn't let a little ribbing from the opposing team's mascot – the monstrous Slamson – get her down at the San Antonio Spurs vs. Sacramento Kings game in Sacramento on Thursday. That's because the Desperate Housewife's fiancé Tony Parker and the Spurs prevailed, 100-93.
WHEN IN ROME

THE LION KING

Wearing her favorite head-to-toe black outfit, Madonna heads out into New York's deep freeze Thursday well protected against the cold.
