It looks like even the talented and extremely hot Rachel Bilson couldn't save the disappointment that is her new sci-fi movie, Jumper.

But she tried her best.

Hayden Christensen and Rachel Bilson

At the premiere of Jumper on Tuesday in Tokyo, Japan, the former star of The OC made a little debut of her own: a new hairstyle!

Very few can really pull of the bangs, but we think Rachel Bilson does. And even if you don't like them, she's much cuter than Mischa Barton. 

Tell us, fans... Rachel Bilson's bangs: Hit or Miss?

Mischa Barton was formally charged with driving under the influence and possession of marijuana, stemming from her arrest in December.

Police announced Tuesday that the former star of Cisco Adler's bedroom and The OC was also charged with driving without a valid license.

Allergic to Food

Barton, 22, will have her official arraignment on the misdemeanor charges on Thursday in Beverly Hills Superior Court. Throw the book at her!

She's probably so nervous, she can barely eat! Oh wait, that's every day.

Frumpy drunk driver and purported actress Mischa Barton.

The star got arrested for investigation of DUI in West Hollywood on December 27 after she got frickin' plowed and her vehicle was straddling two lanes of traffic as she failed to signal when making a turn. That'll usually do it.

The Assassination of a High School President star was held on $10,000 bail and had a really sexy mug shot taken before she was released.

If you picked up the recent Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue, you may have noticed a nearly-naked Brooklyn Decker. So you know she's hot.

Okay, she's more than just hot. She's Marisa Miller hot.

But there are things about this beautiful babe you might not know. Here are some excerpts from SI's recent Q&A with Brooklyn Decker...

The sexiest thing a man has done for her ...
Wrote me a song. It wasn't cheesy or sappy, just sweet.

The sexiest thing she's done for a man ...
You're going to get me in trouble with my dad! I surprised my BF on his birthday with floor seats to the UNC-Duke game. He goes to UNC and is a huge fan and so am I. That was definitely the coolest things I've done, which makes it sexy.

THG NOTE: Marry us, Brooklyn!

On a quiet, rainy day, she likes to ...
Lounge around in my PJs, provide lots of business for Blockbuster and cook for my roommates. I love to cook for them.

Brooklyn Decker Topless

When she get dressed up for a party, her clothing inspiration is ...
Well covered. When you go to a party, things get a little out of control. You don't want any slippages or to pull a Britney Spears. You want to be decent.

If she had to spend $1 million right now ...
I'd give to charity, because you don't have a heart if you don't give to charity. Part of it would go to a new house - I don't know where. And then I'd rent a big cruise ship and bring everyone I know on it.

On her favorite time to get naked ...
When I go to bed. I sleep in the nude sometimes.

Further thoughts on getting nude
...
I am not that scared of it. If you want to be nude, you want to be nude. I don't prance around naked all the time, but I've got nothing against it.

THG NOTE: It's nice to know that Brooklyn Decker has no problems with Brooklyn Decker naked, because we certainly don't. Finally ...

She has crushes on the following celebrities
...
Ryan Gosling and Adam Brody. I think Gosling is the best actor of our generation. He's so good looking but he's a great actor, too. Also Tom Hanks. He's my favorite actor but he's not conventionally attractive.

For Adnan Ghalib - who made upwards of $200,000 a year shooting celebs as a member of the paparazzi - it's a case of the hunter becoming the hunted.

Such is the irony of a member of the celebrity news media becoming involved with the paparazzi's biggest target - Britney Spears.

It seems that Adnan Ghalib - who was cornered yesterday by TMZ cameras - has truly pulled a 180 of late, dropping the same lines the celebrities used to tell him when he was out taking photos of them.

At least the celebrity photo agency member has enough sense to admit he's only famous "by association," in the TMZ video you can watch here.

His 15 minutes may not be up just yet, either.

Britney Spears returned to the dance studio last night - and afterwards, got an evening visit from her paparazzi pal.

Spears left her home away from home, Millennium Dance Complex, after a two-and-a-half hour workout, riding home in her chauffeured SUV.

A few hours later, none other than Adnan Ghalib was spotted rolling up to Summit Circle where she lives. Booty call, anyone?

Answer: Not with the chicks they picked.

That would be enough to answer that question for us, but ABC insists on airing an entire special about it next month. This will surely offer us some hot footage of some past Bachelor studs, but still. Pretty unnecessary!

When The Bachelor finishes airing each season, only one thing is certain: the final couple breaks up ASAP and goes back to real life.

While updates are often found on the hunky bachelors themselves after the inevitable split, the same cannot be said for the women.

ABC has this decided to shine a light on those forgotten women, giving Matt Grant a glimpse into his future of public humiliation and failure.

On Monday March 10 at 8 p.m., ABC will air the special, The Bachelor: Where Are They Now? During the hour-long special, host Chris Harrison will sit down with and visit some of the memorable bachelors and aspiring trophy wives.

Mary Delgado Picture

Some stars of The Bachelor (well, one) have achieved lasting romance, while most do not. Some even end up beating the crap out of their chosen partner. So it goes.

In addition to rekindling massive amounts of heartbreak, the special will visit the only happy couple to come out of the series so far, Ryan and Trista Sutter (above) - now featuring an adorable baby boy, Max! Yay!

Fans of last year's epic season of The Bachelor are also in luck as both DeAnna Pappas and Jenni Croft will offer updates. DeAnna will dish on starring on the newest season of The Bachelorette for ABC, which airs this summer.

All we have to say is that Brad Womack better not show his face. If he does, our staff is gonna go Mary Delgado on his indecisive punk ass.

First, bad plastic surgery. Now, an on-set diva?

Brittany Murphy's stock is plummeting by the day.

Rest in Peace Brittany

According to the New York Post, Murphy is driving the crew on her new movie crazy. Her behavior on the set of Across the Hall has gone from bad to worse, in large part due to Britt's outrageous, diva-like demands.

"She's extremely difficult. When she gets to the set, it comes to a grinding halt. She's so hot and cold, you never know," says a spy.

Wow. We never would have pegged ol' Hot Lips for a prima donna, but this is the celebrity news business. Nothing surprises us anymore.

According to the Post, Brittany Murphy insists on having diagonally cut peanut butter and jelly sandwiches with the crusts removed.

"She needs one every hour. It's painstaking - her assistant takes about a half an hour making each one," said one crew member.

Compounding problems is Murphy's ever-present bad seed of a husband, Simon Monjack, who lurks around the set and intervenes so much that producers had to call a meeting to discuss how to deal with him.

That's bad, but we're just surprised Simon Monjack hasn't found a way to liquidate Brittany's bank accounts and flee the country by now.

A photo of Barack Obama donning traditional Muslim attire as a goodwill gesture during an overseas trip has sparked controversy.

The picture, which mysteriously surfaced yesterday, was attributed by The Drudge Report to sources within the campaign of Hillary Clinton.

The site did not reveal who might have released the photo, but it reeks of political fear-mongering. Here's the picture in question...

Barack Obama donned the traditional Muslim garments during a trip to Kenya in 2006. Like many high-ranking U.S. visitors, he received such clothing as a gift.

Obama's father is Kenyan, his mother from Kansas. The senator is Christian and has been a member of Chicago's United Church of Christ for 20 years.

These facts did not stop some Clinton volunteers from circulating e-mails that falsely claimed Barack Obama is a Muslim late last year.

That bogus rumor (which he has worked hard to dispel) and the release of this picture are pathetic ploys to stoke the fears of ignorant Americans.

Hillary Clinton aides also suggested that his drug use as a young man might make him vulnerable to GOP attacks if he were the Democratic nominee.

She makes a point there. Thank goodness Bill Clinton didn't inhale, otherwise he might have left himself vulnerable to GOP attacks. Phew!

How much more shameless and desperate can the former First Lady get? Stay tuned - the proverbial bar just keeps finding a way to go lower.

Sorry, Zac Efron. T.R. Knight is off the market.

The talented Grey's Anatomy actor recently went public with his new boyfriend, Mark Cornelsen, during the 2008 Elton John AIDS Foundation Oscar Party held at the Pacific Design Center in West Hollywood on Sunday night.

The two held hands and looked very happy together. See below:

T.R. Knight came out of the closet after infamously being outed during a fit of rage by former co-star Isaiah Washington, who ended up not being retained by Grey's Anatomy after the conclusion of its third season.

Knight received an Emmy nomination for Grey's Anatomy, while Washington went on to star in Bionic Woman, which got axed. Karma's a bitch.

Previously, Knight had been romantically linked to actor Luke MacFarlane, who went on to date Wentworth Miller of Prison Break fame.

We last showcased a pair of American Idol hopefuls in our celebrity look-alikes feature. Today it's a pair of thespians who have piqued our interest.

Javier Bardem, who just won an Oscar for No Country For Old Men, certainly is a handsome, talented fellow. Not unlike another favorite of The Hollywood Gossip.

Penelope Cruz, Javier Bardem Picture

Known lately for roles on Grey's Anatomy, Supernatural, Weeds and P.S. I Love You, and for rocking the love life of the beatiful Mary-Louise Parker, Jeffrey Dean Morgan can now add Javier Bardem look-alike to his expanding resume.

Britney Spears saw sons Sean Preston and Jayden James Monday, as her father sought to end a civil rights challenge to his control of her affairs.

The singer's children, 2 and 1, were driven to her Studio House by her ex-husband Kevin Federline's bodyguard for a three-hour visit.

It was the second visitation in three days after Spears' attorneys worked out a structured visitation arrangement with Kevin Federline.

Meanwhile, attorneys for Britney's father, Jamie Spears, filed a round of paperwork in federal court on Monday, urging a judge to end a civil rights challenge to Jamie's control of his daughter's $100 million estate.

If granted, the motion would keep the co-conservatorship in state court.

Jon Eardley, an attorney who claims to represent the pop star, had been asked to file papers in Federal Court by February 22 explaining the civil rights challenge.

Eardley, who we assume is working in cahoots with the shady Sam Lutfi, told the judge on Friday he needed more time to formally file.

In legal documents, Eardley claims that Britney retained him February 12 before her phone was taken away and the line disconnected.

Jon Eardley also continued to maintain that the current conservatorship case in state court violates the singer's constitutional rights.

But the conservatorship attorneys say Eardley, in addition to failing to meet the deadline, has not proven that he qualifies as Britney Spears' attorney, nor has he addressed the most fundamental legal issues in the case.

The conservatorship motion asks that the case be immediately returned to Los Angeles Superior Court Commissioner Reva Goetz, and that Eardley be forced to reimburse upwards of $43,000 in attorney fees.

While the civil rights issue remains unresolved in federal court, the conservatorship case in state court is stalled. Stay tuned.
