Usher Parties in Hollywood With Who?!

New Hollywood hot spot Premiere Supper Club was the place to be Saturday night, with celebs like Usher and Leonardo DiCaprio enjoying the new "theater meets nightlife" themed club.

Nothing unusual about that, until we spotted Usher with a certain Oscar winner...

Sitting with the Grammy winner at a VIP table was none other than...Robert De Niro! The unlikely duo spent most of the night chatting and taking in one of the club's performances in which actors reenact scenes from popular movies.

That night's pick?

A scene from De Niro's famous flick Raging Bull. "The real De Niro and Usher were laughing, getting a kick out of the performance," a source told us. Afterward, the two hung out for a while before Usher took off in a black SUV with DiCaprio.

Also out Saturday, Jared Leto, Ke$ha, Mischa Barton, and Anna Faris were all in attendance at Phoenix's private after party at the Hollywood Roosevelt's Tropicana Bar. A few blocks away, Oscar winner Jamie Foxx spent time with friends at Drai's Hollywood on Friday night, dancing and even hopping on the mic to perform several songs for the crowd.

Bachelorette's Ali Fedotowsky celebrated her 26th birthday at the Mondrian Hotel's Skybar in West Hollywood on Saturday with fiancé Roberto Martinez and Bachelor Pad couple Kiptyn Locke and Tenley Molzahn. Fedotowsky and friends toasted with champagne and spent the whole night dancing while downing Stoli vodka drinks.

Earlier on Saturday, How I Met Your Mother star Colbie Smulders shopped with her 14-month-old daughter, Shaelyn, at the Pump Station in Santa Monica.

And speaking of HIMYM, that was drag queen extraordinaire Coco Peru filming an appearance the other day on the hit CBS series. She plays a hooker who propositions a certain star of the show. We won't tell you who, but the episode airs later next month.

Also coming next month, on Oct. 28 to be exact, a 35th anniversary celebration of The Rocky Horror Picture Show at L.A.'s Wiltern Theater. Glee stars Lea Michele and Matthew Morrison, Jack Nicholson, Danny DeVito, Jason Segel and legendary rocker Billy Idol already signed on to make appearances during the live tribute. The night benefits The Painted Turtle, one of Paul Newman's Hole in the Wall camps.Read more:

Sony's `Resident Evil' Is Top U.S. Film With $27.7 Million in Ticket Sales

“Resident Evil: Afterlife,” the fourth film in the science-fiction series, was the top-grossing movie in the U.S. and Canada this past weekend, generating $27.7 million in ticket sales for Sony Corp.

“Takers,” which is also from Sony, finished second, moving up the rankings from its third-place finish last week, researcher Box-Office said yesterday in an e- mailed statement.
“Resident Evil,” the weekend’s only wide release, stars Milla Jovovich as a warrior who tries to shepherd a band of humans to safety in a world overrun by zombies. The first three movies averaged $47.3 million in ticket sales in the U.S. and Canada and $126.5 million worldwide, according to Box Office Mojo. This weekend had the lowest ticket sales this year, Box-Office said.
“Sony took tremendous advantage of, what is typically one of the slowest weekends of the year, which is the post-Labor Day weekend,” said Paul Dergarabedian, president of Box-Office, in a telephone interview. “Sony found that sweet spot” and “worked it.”
It was the fifth time this year a Sony film topped the weekend chart, according to Box-Office. The company’s $922.3 million in 2010 sales through Sept. 9 puts it fifth among the major Hollywood studios, according to Box Office Mojo’s website.
‘The American’
The “Resident Evil” films are based on the video game from Osaka, Japan-based Capcom Co. The film was directed by Paul W.S. Anderson, who also directed the original “Resident Evil,” released in 2002.
“Takers,” which finished second, had receipts of $6.1 million. The film features singer Chris Brown and Hayden Christensen, who are part of a group of bank robbers being chased by a veteran detective played by Matt Dillon.
George Clooney’s spy drama “The American” dropped to third from first place with $5.9 million. In the Focus Features film, Clooney plays an assassin who is hiding out in Italy between assignments. His circumstances become more perilous after he is asked to build a weapon for another hit.
Fox’s “Machete” fell to fourth from second with $4.2 million. In the movie, Danny Trejo plays a former Mexican police officer who seeks revenge against a group that betrayed him. The Robert Rodriguez action film co-stars Jessica Alba, Michelle Rodriguez, Robert De Niro and Don Johnson.
‘Going the Distance’
“Going the Distance” was fifth again this week with $3.84 million. In the romantic comedy by Warner Bros. Pictures, Drew Barrymore and Justin Long play a pair of 30-somethings trying to sustain a bicoastal relationship.
Weekend sales for the top 12 films fell 10.8 percent to $68 million from $76.2 million in the year-ago period, said. Year-to-date receipts total $7.81 billion, up 3.94 percent from $7.51 billion. Attendance has fallen 1.6 percent this year.

Kim Kardashian Not Happy About Playboy Outtakes

Kim Kardashian is none too pleased that released outtakes this week from her pictorial. The site released twenty-five pictures from Kim's 2007 photo shoot and Kim is apparently "freaking out," according to RadarOnline. "Kim was really upset that the new photos were released," said a source close to Kim. " She freaked out that they were out there, she didn't think that they were going to be seen again."

Kim has said she regretted doing the nude photo spread, but in 2008 she wrote a letter to her fans saying "While I'm not planning to pose for the men's magazine in the immediate future, I definitely don't want to close the door to the opportunity! I absolutely love Hugh Hefner and the rest of the Playboy team and appreciate the opportunity to work with them!"

Leonardo DiCaprio Gets Restraining Order

Leo's stalker has to stay away...

Leonardo DiCaprio has been granted a restraining order against a stalker. The person is a "delusional" 41-year old woman named Livia Bristiceanu, who believes she is married to DiCaprio and has his child.

Married or not, she'll have to stay 100 yards away from Leo for the next three years, according to an L.A. Country Superior Court judge.


DiCaprio told the court, "I am frightened of Ms. Bistriceanu and feel that my personal safety, and the personal safety of those around me, is in jeopardy."

Beyonce Pays Five Figure Settlement for "Disruption" in Hollywood Hills

Earlier this summer (in May), while filming the video for "Why Don't You Love Me" in the Hollywood Hills, Beyonce and crew apparently made quite the racket.  As you can surely imagine, making a music video is inherently loud, what with the production crew, singing, light crew, and then some, but the crew were sued by a Hollywood Hills resident for another reason: trespassing.
Phillip Markowitz was such a neighbor, having sued Beyonce and crew in May for being a "major disruption" and having trespassed onto his driveway.
Says Markowitz:
"I'm happy with the settlement, but this lawsuit shouldn't have happened in the first place. They set up on my property without asking and [the settlement] should send a notice to other production companies that they need to respect the rights of property owners.

Uh, seriously dude?  Beyonce and her crew would be welcome for free on most people's yards, let alone for a five figure settlement.  Get over yourself.
