Robert Pattinson has landed!
Our favorite Brit boy is here in Hollywood. As you must know by now, the Twilight star is going to be presenting at the Academy Awards on Sunday. (Nope, his costar Kristen Stewart is not expected to join him.)
So what's he been up to since he got here?
Mr. Pattinson was spotted in Beverly Hills yesterday, followed by dinner at Grey Goose night at the new West Hollywood outpost of London's famed Italian brasserie Cecconi's.
He arrived by himself (how much do we love that he doesn't travel with an entourage?) at about 8:30 p.m. and enjoyed the cicchetti, the eatery's signature plate of Italian tapas. "He ate dinner with friends and hung out in the patio area," a fellow diner reports.
I hear he'll be rehearsing his Oscar gig on Saturday afternoon at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood.
Also at Cecconi's were Jimmy Kimmel, Sharon Stone, Gordon Ramsay, Steve Coogan, Sex and The City's Jason Lewis and Oscar performer Dominic Cooper (Mamma Mia!).
Not too far away, up on Sunset Boulevard, lindsay Lohan hit the William Morris Agency's party for Milk at the Chateau Marmont hotel. She was spotted chatting with Josh Brolin, Casey Affleck, Charlize Theron, Stuart Townsend and Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder. Also there was Brolin's wife Diane Lane, Elizabeth Banks and Milk producers Bruce Cohen and Dan Jinks.
Linds was spotted much later in the wee hours leaving the hotel with English singer Lily Allen and heading for a tattoo parlor.
