Cornering the ‘funny girl’ market for the last decade thanks to the ‘Scary Movie’ franchise and films such as ‘Waiting’, ‘The House Bunny’ and ‘My Super Ex-Girlfriend’, Anna Faris now takes on the more traditional Rom-Com, and lands Captain America no less, in leading man Chris Evans.

‘What’s Your Number?’ is the story of Ally (Faris), a single lady with a fear of forever being on her own. After a magazine article backs up these fears, she has an epiphany- she will not sleep with another man until she’s sure he’s the one. Making a deal with her neighbour Colin (Chris Evans), the pair track down the twenty men she has, ahem, ‘taken to bed’, to see if she has overlooked Mr. Right. As the experiment delivers mixed results, she begins to realise that sometimes you can’t live life by the numbers.

It’s an undeniable truth that this is simply another attempt to tweak the formula of a rom-com just that little bit, only to deliver the same old chestnuts about living life and not chasing happiness with formulas and deadlines. The thing is, it’s just about likeable enough to get away with it. A combination of the leads’ charm (Faris and Evans genuinely seem suited on screen) and the frankly ingenious stroke of getting an array of famous faces to turn up as Ally’s exes (you will exclaim ‘is that…?’ more than a couple of times during the movie) mean the story keeps rolling along at an acceptable and enjoyable pace.

Faris made her name as the actress unafraid to get her hands dirty in the name of comedy, and she does so again to varying results. It’s not the clever role her talents have been crying out for, but she’s good enough at what she does to pull of some dumb comedy and still draw some laughs out of you. Likewise, Chris Evans is believable and occasionally quite funny as Colin, and as mentioned the pair make a great match on screen.

There have been far, far worse rom-coms in the last month, let alone this year, so the fact that ‘What’s Your Number?’ offers anything even slightly original is to be commended. A clever, ‘Legally Blonde’ type role is required for Faris to truly break out of the ‘disposable comedy’ niche she has created, but thanks largely to her this is a rare occasion that familiarity doesn’t breed contempt.

Premiere of Lifetime's Five, an anthology of five short films exploring the impact of breast cancer on people's lives.

The female-led project put a spotlight on famous women taking the director's chair for each of the five shorts, which air as one movie on Lifetime on Oct. 10 (9 p.m. ET/PT). "I have to say Jennifer and Demi, watching them transform from actors to directors was really exciting to watch," said Tripplehorn, who plays an oncologist in all five shorts. "They are naturals, they should do it more often." Clarkson, who plays a feisty survivor named Mia, also raved about Aniston as a director. "I worked with a little someone named Martin Scorsese and a little someone named Woody Allen and let me tell you, Jennifer holds her own."

Aniston, in a low-cut black vest and slim trousers, literally stopped traffic downtown getting out of her SUV as boyfriend Justin Theroux quickly headed inside the venue. Meanwhile, Clarkson walked the carpet with a diamond-encrusted gold leaf necklace around her neck. "This is from Jennifer Aniston," she said with a smile.
Aniston's favorite part about being back in New York? "The people!" she said, as across the street a topless woman photographed the event. "That is brilliant," laughed Tripplehorn. "That's what it's all about right there. We're dealing with breasts tonight. I love New York!"

Guest list:Five directors Jennifer Aniston, Demi Moore, Patty Jenkins, Penelope Spheeris and Alicia Keys walked the red carpet, alongside stars Patricia Clarkson, Jeanne Tripplehorn and Lyndsy Fonseca.

Anna Faris candidly revealed that she bedded a total of five guys before marrying her husband, “Moneyball” star Chris Pratt, in 2009.

“I’m at five,” the star said at a screening of “What’s Your Number?” “Don’t you think five is kind of low? I’m 34!” During a pre-screening interview Tuesday night with Marie Claire editor Joanna Coles, Faris added, “I’m not a very good lover. I’m so nervous about my sexuality.”

In the film, Faris plays an unlucky-in-love woman who frets she’ll never find Mr. Right after learning the average woman sleeps with 10.5 men before finding “the one,” and she’s bordering on 20.

VOTE: Should You Ever Reveal Your Number?

“I think 20 is kind of low,” she told Coles. “Shouldn’t it be like 70?” Faris -- who was recently hailed by Tad Friend in the New Yorker as the future of female comedy -- also said that she doesn’t read reviews.

“I try not to read [them],” she said at the Joseph Urban Theatre. “The bad ones really cling. And I’m lucky that I’ve been part of a lot of poorly received movies, so I’m immune. ‘Scary Movie 4’ was a brilliant movie. I’m shocked it didn’t get nominated.”

Adding to her already impressive array of products, Heidi Klum unveiled her new fragrance Shine in West Hollywood yesterday (September 28).
The “Project Runway” starlet was all smiles as she hammed it up at the Mondrian Los Angeles to plug her signature scent.

Heidi explained that she put a lot of time and effort into creating Shine. “I worked with this amazing French nose who came from Paris many times to me in Los Angeles and New York when I was working there.

Basically we would just talk about all the things that I love in smells and different roots that I like. He comes over and has all the little sniffing strips. They all have numbers so we don’t mess anything up. You sniff, and sniff, and sniff, all day long.”

“I wanted something that is super feminine, that is very light. My husband definitely got an input in it because I do want to smell good for my husband. He doesn’t like it when I smell too strong. He still wants to smell me with a little bit of perfume.”

While we tend to associate novelty prints with kitschy upholstery and twee mid-century vintage clothing, Blair Leighton Meester)’s Season 5 premiere look made us want to reconsider our prejudices. After all, if the Queen B herself is willing to to take a walk on the wild side with this leafy gown  and wear to a royal gala, no less!  then maybe we just haven’t been looking in the right places.

We went digging for some similarly quirky prints to see if we could find something that Blair herself would wear  imagining she was on a budget  and we think we came up with a pretty exhaustive list. Remember to exercise caution when wearing one of these head-turning pieces and tone down the rest of the outfit accordingly.

Kelly Clarkson was in in Australia this week to promote her new album Stronger, and Take 40 were lucky enough to sit down and chat with the gorgeous gal!

Kelly's latest single 'Mr. Know It All,' has been met with a huge response from Aussie fans and we were wondering what it was all about... has she dated a Mr. Know It All?

Kelly assured us that it's not about anyone specific, but more about general annoying people she might have worked with in the past.

"I've had a lot of man bashing songs..." she told Take 40, "(but) I'm actually very nice."

We also wanted to know whether she liked listening to her own music in those intimate moments... and her answer? Hmm not her own tunes exactly, but rather something heavily surprising!

Make sure you watch the full chat with Kelly below to hear what she said!

Kelly's new album Stronger is out on October 21st this year! Exciting!

Could our beloved Justin Bieber be scoring a guest role in our fave show?

'Gossip Girl' star Kelly Rutherford (who plays Lily Van Der Woodsen) says she would love to have Justin on the show!

"It would be great to have Justin on the show, it would be so much fun, we'd love to have him!" she said.

"I think he should perform. I think if he performed on the show it would be great. But I'm sure he's a great actor too so obviously whatever he wanted!"

Sounds like Kelly has a bit of Bieber Fever!

Kelly even brought her kids to New York Fashion Week to get a picture taken with Justin.

Totes jealous!

Meanwhile, Gossip Girl returns to TV in the US on September 26! Get your illegal downloads ready... what? We said nothing. Sssh.
