15The Next Generation

Meet 11-year-old Amanda Balon, who’s currently playing Annie in the U.S. tour of the musical. She showed up at an event in Times Square to sign CDs for the 30th anniversary cast recording.

When Annie was running on Broadway 30 years ago, Sarah Jessica Parker had the title role.

Do we have a little Carrie in the making?

6Ethan Hawke Found a Sure-Fire Way Out of Jury Duty

Apparently Ethan Hawke was a potential juror for the case involving ex-wife Uma Thurman’s stalker.

“I looked down at a guy in the front row – I hadn’t noticed him before – and he was smirking,” said an NYC court clerk, recalling the incident. “It was Ethan Hawke.”

11We Have Located Mischa Barton

I guess she’s not missing anymore. The director of her upcoming film, You and I, was freaking out because she didn’t show up for any of the movie’s promotional events at Cannes or in London.

She just didn’t want to promote a crap movie. Unfortunately, all she has to promote are crap movies, since no one’s offering her decent scripts these days.

Anyway, Mischa showed up at some fundraising event sponsored by Billabong in LA yesterday. So she’s fine. Breathe a sigh of relief. Or frustration. Either is fine.

27Your Daily Paris

Paris and Benji head out for a night on the town, hitting up Eva Longoria’s restaurant, Beso.

I like how that dress makes it look like Paris is sporting a baby bump. You know she did that on purpose. She’s so sad that everyone’s having babies but her. She’s playing pretend.

It’s like how I shop at Costco. I have absolutely no need to shop at Costco. I live alone with a four-pound dog. But Costco is my happy place. I love trotting around with my huge cart. I walk past these, like, families of five, kids crawling everywhere, and as I happily heft an eight-gallon jug of apple juice into my cart, I think to myself, “I bet they think I have three kids, too,” and then I feel special. It’s like the most fiscally irresponsible way ever to live out my fantasy life. I bought a pack of thirty hot dogs on Monday. I went into the office on Tuesday and kept asking people “Do you need hot dogs?” The looks I got were priceless.

18I’m Not Buying What Lindsay Lohan’s Selling

She can trot around LA with something that looks like a script all day long, but I refuse to believe anyone’s offering this girl new film roles. She’s box office poison.

You know she just grabbed a bunch of pieces of paper from a nearby printer. Probably walked right into a Kinkos and stole them when she saw the paps coming.

And is she really allowed to be that close to a playground? Don’t we have laws about that?
