Salma Throws Star Studded Oscar Nominee Party For Penelope
Filed Under: Uncategorized

That’s right, Penelope’s best friend Salma Hayek has once again done another big thing for her BFF. These two are so cute it’s not even funny. CHeck out the article below.

Also, thank you for the well wishes – I’m off to the hospital but I DID manage to upload 72 photos last night to the gallery.

The stars aligned for Penélope Cruz last night at best friend Salma Hayek’s L.A.-area home.

Hayek and the Weinstein Company threw a party to toast Cruz and her Oscar nomination for her work in Woody Allen’s Vicky Cristina Barcelona.

The guest list was pretty impressive…

First up, Cruz’s VCB costar Scarlett Johansson. She now has dark red hair. Nope, she didn’t change the color for anything like work. “She just said she wanted an autumn color,” her rep tells me.

Now, back to the rest of the guest list.

The celeb-studded bash included Johansson’s hubby, Ryan Reynolds, Demi Moore, Ashton Kutcher, Drew Barrymore, Michael Douglas, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Eva Mendes, Aaron Eckhart, Charlize Theron, Stuart Townsend, Adrien Brody, Antonio Banderas, Melanie Griffith, Josh Groban, Bob Balaban, Angela Bassett, Courtney B. Vance, Quincy Jones, Penny Marshall, directors Paul Haggis and Brett Ratner and execs Harvey Weinstein, Steve McPherson, Ryan Kavanaugh and über-agent Kevin Huvane.

Hayek served tapas and sangria. The party decor resembled a photographer’s darkroom, with pictures of Cruz clipped onto wires suspended from the ceiling.

And Ms. Johansson wasn’t the only one with a new ‘do. Sexy man Colin Farrell had a newly shaved head. He chopped it off for his work in The Way Back, director Peter Weir’s film about a group of soldiers who escape a Siberian gulag in 1940.
