1 of 19

Hooray for Hollywood and cash-grab movie sequels. Anybody else mortified by the image of Channing Tatum flashing gang signs with Ice Cube at the premiere of 22 Jump Street in Los Angeles? Nobody? Back in the day, such hand gestures would have resulted in a turf war

But of course once those floodgates opened, Tatum’s obsequious co-star Jonah Hill was all over that hand-jive action like a cheap suit. Because that’s what Jonah Hill does

After quick consultation with the local constabulary, the Jump Street stars agreed that it was probably a whole lot safer for everyone to switch to the traditional thumbs-up. Nobody ever got taken down in a drive-by shooting with the ol’ thumbs-up, no sir

And as Jump Street supporting player Peter Stormare shows us, when you combine the ol’ thumbs-up with premature gloating for your favourite sports team, the world is your oyster

Elsewhere, funny business was transpiring at the L.A. premiere of the new comedy Think Like a Man Too. Apparently some wise guy sent all the female stars of the movie an e-mail promising long and fruitful film careers to whoever displayed the most cleavage at the event. Regina Hall got the memo

Meanwhile, what were all the vapid white women in Hollywood doing this week? A good number of them were at the Maxim Hot 100 Party. For security reasons, Joanna Krupa wore her metallic bulletproof breastplate

Also at the Maxim soiree was Lydia Hearst, who probably thought she was pretty darn original with her bizarre dental apron ensemble on the red carpet

But then Noureen DeWulf showed up in the same gear! It’s a good thing they keep these models in separate pens

The surprise guest at the Maxim event: Paris Hilton! Yes, that Paris Hilton! Where have you been, precious? We hardly recognized you without those night-vision raccoon eyes!

Around the same time in New York, Christopher Walken and Clint Eastwood showed up for the premiere of Jersey Boys. But if Clint is 14 years older than Walken, how come he looks so much healthier? It’s summer! Get some sun, Chris

Er, on second thought, stay out of the sun. Remember what happened to Nosferatu?

But for once, the eyes of the world were on Canada as a few dozen celebrities and hundreds of publicists descended upon the Banff World Media Festival. How A-list were the celeb attendees? Check out this pic of Hell on Wheels star Anson Mount. Anson Mount in the house!

Also in Banff this week was veteran TV news anchor Dan Rather, still spouting those folksy witticisms like, ‘What’s the frequency, Kenneth?’

And here’s the esteemed actor Henry Winkler, who shocked Banff attendees with the revelation that his Happy Days character of Fonzie was actually based on Josef K from Franz Kafka’s The Trial. Who knew?

And through some twist of fate, or somebody else cancelling, this year’s Banff event included the rare participation of an actual homegrown celebrity. Ladies and gentleman, Alan Thicke: Talk-show host, sitcom star and father of Robin Thicke. In Canadian entertainment terms, two out of three ain’t bad
