Now that Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck are the parents of two little girls, it’s a rarity to see them together on the red carpet. So when Jen Garner hit Grauman’s Chinese Theater in Hollywood on Monday night, Sept. 21, to celebrate the premiere of her new comedy “The Invention of Lying,” it was no surprise that she was alone.
Leaving her hubby home with the kids, Garner signed autographs and then greeted her cohorts from the comedy, including Rob Lowe, Fionnula Flanagan, Louis C. K., Jonah Hill, and Ricky Gervais, who also co-wrote and co-directed the irreverent film all about a world where everyone tells the truth except for Gervais’ character.
At an earlier press conference, Gervais admitted that he’s been known to tell a few lies off-screen, too.
“I sort of lie all the time,” he chuckled, “but it’s to protect people’s feelings. ‘Can you come to my baby’s christening?’ I go, ‘Oh, I can’t. I’m busy.’ I don’t say, ‘Well, that doesn’t sound like a great day out. I get it. It’s a little fat thing that looks like Winston Churchill. I’ve seen those. I don’t need to see this.’ So that’s what makes you a nice member of the human race, that you can choose when to make a good lie.”
Jennifer chose to be honest when asked if she and Ben would ever make a film together again, now that they have a family to consider.
“I was talking to him about that this morning,” Garner said, “saying the question keeps coming up. And I said, ‘We have literally never spoken about it.’ He said, ‘Yeah. I would love to.’ I said, ‘Yeah.’ I think he’s a beautiful director, obviously, and is such a gorgeous writer, but to go to work with him, I would just be like, ‘I need to go home to the kids.’”
Also on hand for the premiere and after party were Matthew Perry, Kenny G, and style maven Jay Manuel.

The world might very well have a new holiday on its hands – in New York, Fashion’s Night Out on Thursday, Sept. 10, created a festive atmosphere in the streets from uptown to downtown, as over 700 stores stayed open late, offered free champagne or snacks and pumped up the volume in order to lure shoppers.
Organized by Vogue magazine, similar events were planned for stores worldwide, from London to Paris to Tokyo.
It felt like fashion’s very own version of Halloween, except that instead of people dressed as murder victims, there were people dressed as fashion victims. Or just call it team spirit, like the guy accessorized from head-to-toe with Hermes – a scarf worn as a headband, up to the elbows in studded cuffs and Hermes Kelly watches and a Birkin bag the size of a small country.
Many stores promised celebrity guests, like Charlize Theron at Dior. The Dior spokesmodel signed copies of the September issue of Vogue, which features her on the cover, at the 57th Street flagship. Upstairs in the boutique, clients who spent $2500 or more could have their portrait taken by renowned Vogue photographer Arthur Elgort.
“I buy t-shirts from L.L. Bean,” said Elgort, “but you do what you have to do for the people who feed you. I know if there were no magazines I’d be out of a job.”
The streets weren’t just filled with shoppers. Designers Mark Badgley and James Mischka strolled Madison Avenue during the early part of the night and Calvin Klein designer Francisco Costa stood outside the Madison Avenue store and signed Fashion’s Night Out t-shirts for fans while CK One model Jamie Burke performed inside.
At Barneys, Ruben and Isabel Toledo signed copies of the book that accompanies Isabel’s exhibit at the Museum of the Fashion Institute of Technology, warmly chatting with guests. Ruben, one of fashion’s top illustrators, even drew a portrait or two in the books he signed.
“Everybody is in good spirits,” said Isabel. “It’s a great way to start fashion week.”
Also at Barneys, Juan Carlos Obando, an L.A.-based designer in town for fashion week, gave customers salsa lessons, which made perfect sense with everyone dressed to the nines walking around as though out for a night of clubbing.
Just like the kinds of exclusive fashion parties the evening hoped to evoke for the average customer, there were plenty of lines around the block and swarms of intimidating paparazzi. But, there were good things that came for those who waited on line, like free coffee in a signature blue cup from Tiffany & Co. – they better to keep you fueled for shopping after all that champagne.
London’s famously dishevelled mayor, Boris Johnson, will grace the cover of fashion bible Elle next month in what many will see as a surprising partnership to mark 25 years of London Fashion Week.
Johnson is recognised as much for his untidy shock of blonde hair and his chaotic appearance as his politics — and the mayor himself admitted putting him on the front of the world’s biggest-selling fashion magazine was a gamble.
“Lorraine (Candy, Elle’s editor in chief) took what for many might seem a huge risk. Who would have expected me to grace an Elle cover — or any other fashion magazine?” he said.
The cover shows Johnson in his trademark dark suit and white shirt with no tie, surrounded by lyrics from the Clash’s “London Calling”, echoing a similar cover last year starring fellow London resident Sienna Miller.
“The capital leads the world in producing innovative designers, so I’m thrilled to have been involved in this special issue celebrating 25 years of London Fashion Week,” added Johnson.
London Fashion Week takes place from September 18 to 22.
Megan Fox didn’t mind making out with costar Amanda Seyfried in their new horror flick Jennifer’s Body.
“I feel much safer with girls, so I felt more comfortable kissing her in the movie than kissing any of the other people that I had to kiss,” the 23-year-old actress tells MTV News.
Seyfried was less at ease with the same-sex smooch.
“I think she was extremely uncomfortable. I don’t think that — I know that,” Fox says. “She was not comfortable and there was a lot of laughing — like, giggling fits that happened in between takes.”
Fox has called the film “so sexy” … and she’s pretty fond of her performance, too.
“I think I’m pretty sexy in it,” she said at a Comic-Con event last month.
