Nick Jonas & Delta Goodrem's Los Cabos Labor Day Getaway

He's one of the hottest hunks in Hollywood, and Taylor Lautner was nabbed to cover the October 2011 issue of Seventeen magazine.

The Jacob Black actor posed for a photo spread while answering questions about topics including his first kiss, his guilty TV pleasure and worst habit.

Highlights from Taylor's interview are as follows. For more, be sure to visit Seventeen!

On how old he was when he had his first kiss:

"It was sometime in junior high. I don't remember what year, but it was definitely in junior high. I think it was just with a random girl from school. I mean, it's not like I walked up to her and was like 'You're just a random girl and I'm going to kiss you,' but just a girl from school, and we had a little thing in junior high."

On his TV guilty pleasure: "One thing I watch off the hook because it's on every single night up here [in Vancouver] and I usually can't find it in the States that much is Dog: The Bounty Hunter."

On his worst habit:

"I bounce my knees, but I do not have restless leg syndrome. I did an interview, I don't even know who it was with, and they said I told them I have restless leg syndrome and it distracts me from my work. I do not have any syndrome. I actually have many friends [like me] who just bounce their knees."

On whether or not it's easy for him to talk to girls:

"[Laughs] Oh, I definitely wouldn't say I overcame that. I guess it just depends on the girl. Sometimes I'll feel free to completely open up, and I wish I could do that more often because that's what I look for in a girl. Someone that can open up and be herself, but no, I definitely haven't overcome it completely."

Back for more press duties after a midday photocall, Colin Firth was front and center at the premiere of "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy" at the Venice Film Festival on Monday night (September 5).

The Hollywood leading man suited up for the Palazzo del Cinema screening while joined by Gary Oldman, Ciaran Hinds, Jared Harris, Benedict Cumberbatch, Mark Strong and Svetlana Khodchenko.

As for the film, "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy" is an adaptation of John Le Carre's seminal Cold War best-seller while following espionage veteran George Smiley - who is forced from semi-retirement to uncover a Soviet agent within MI6's echelons.

The Tomas Alfredson directed thriller also stars Tom Hardy while set for a US release date of December 9th.

Showing off her cat-like reflexes, Anne Hathaway was spotted in the midst of an intense fight scene on Los Angeles, California the set of "The Dark Knight Rises" on Sunday (September 4).

The 28-year-old A-list actress, who plays Catwoman Selina Kyle in the last of the Christopher Nolan franchise, went head to head with a with an equally-fierce bad guy.

After engaging in the life or death battle, Anne's powerful moves saw her through, resulting in her win over the not-so-nice stunt man.

Following her weekend filming schedule, Miss Hathaway and beau Adam Shulman hit up L.A.'s Malo Cantina Suavecita, were the pair enjoyed a romantic dinner ahead of the Labor Day holiday.

Just hours after the televised confirmation of her pregnancy, French First Lady, Carla Bruni was spotted out in Paris, France earlier today (September 5).

Showing off her burgeoning baby bump in a belly-hugging gray sweatshirt, the 43-year-old mother-to-be was all smiles as she made her way through the bevy of impending shutterbugs.

During an interview with TF1 program "Sept A Huit," which aired last night, Carla not only confirmed news that she and husband Nicolas Sarkozy are expecting, but she also described her staunch stance against putting her baby in the public eye.

"You don't have a child for the [photo] gallery," she told, adding that her "position as the wife of the head of state has made me even more defensive. I understand the media interest, and I don't see any inconvenience in it for myself or my husband, but when it concerns the children, it's not impossible."

Bruni, who has already dealt with the media's prying eyes with her first child, 11-year-old Aurelian, added, "I will do everything to protect this infant, and I'll be absolutely rigorous. I will never show photos of this child. I will never expose this child."

Living it up over the Labor Day holiday weekend, Audrina Patridge was busy partying the day away in Las Vegas on Sunday (September 4).

The bikini clad "Hills" hottie joined boyfriend Corey Bohan as the pair danced and had a few drinks at Wyclef Jean's poolside concert at the Hard Rock Hotel.

As previously reported by GossipCenter, Miss Patridge recently opened up about quite the touchy subject - as she revealed that she has a problem with her chest bone affecting the appearance of her bosoms.

Asked if she's ever had breast enhancement surgery, the 26-year-old told The Daily, "I don't like to talk about that. Well, see I have this chest problem. My bone right here, it's higher on this side? It's pectoralis something. So I've always struggled with that. You could see they look different sizes all the time."

She added, "I always get asked about that because of Heidi and there's all these rumours and they all say I've had, like, six procedures, and I'm, like, 'Where do you get that?' Look at the pictures. I fluctuate in weight a lot. And as far as my face, I've never had anything done."

Readying herself for a busy work week, Pippa Middleton was spotted out and about in London, England this morning (September 5).

The always-stylish Brit beauty, joined by a guy pal, looked lovely as she made her way to the office, wearing a black jacket, gray and black dress and leather flats.

It's no doubt being sister to Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton has garnered Pippa an excessive amount of attention, and now her parents are ready and willing to offer up a hefty sum to ensure their daughter stays out of harms way.

According to various reports, Miss Middleton's family is in the midst of buying an armored car for the party planner, as one source revealed, "Carole and Michael have taken a raft of measures following advice from one of William's most trusted bodyguards. Pippa's car will have all the latest security devices, including armor plating. It will be bomb proof."

Getting their assigned dayful of promotions underway, the stars of "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy" turned up for their film's photocall at the 68th Venice Film Festival on Monday (September 5).

With Colin Firth and Gary Oldman among those on-hand at the Palazzo del Cinema venue, the duo were joined by John Hurt, Svetlana Khodchenkova, Benedict Cumberbatch and Mark Strong.

Though we're still many months removed from its air date, chatter about who will be following Anne Hathaway and James Franco as host(s) of this year's Oscars has become a hot topic as of late.

Insiders tell that the frontrunner to take command of the Kodak Theatre stage is Eddie Murphy - with the actor/comedian getting a boost in the race due to his ties with director Brett Ratner, who happens to be producing the ceremony this time around.

With an official announcement of the final selection to be made later this month, other potential candidates include Billy Crystal, who last hosted the show in 2004.

Joining in on the celebration were lovely actress Gwyneth Paltrow, as well as newly-bald actor Matt Damon (who was joined by wife Luciana Barroso), as well as fellow co-star Laurence Fishburne.

For the sci-fi thriller, Damon teamed back up with director Steven Soderbergh - who also directed him in the “Ocean's Eleven” movies starting back in 2001.

“Steven sent me the script with a note that said, ‘Read this and then go wash your hands,’” said Damon, with a laugh. “After seeing this movie in a theater filled with strangers, I’m sure that thought will definitely cross peoples’ minds.”

As for "Contagion," the picture - which hits theaters on September 9th - also stars Jude Law and Kate Winslet while being an "action-thriller centered on the threat posed by a deadly disease and an international team of doctors contracted by the CDC to deal with the outbreak."

Ringing in another year in his rollercoaster life, Charlie Sheen made his way to Buca di Beppo Italian restaurant in Encino, CA for a 46th birthday dinner on Saturday night (September 3).

The former "Two and a Half Men" star was alongside his ex-wife Brooke Mueller, as well as their twin boys Bob and Max, to celebrate his special day with friends and loved ones.

Following the evening meal, a smiling Sheen exited the eatery with son Bob in his arms - with his little one proudly holding a big red balloon with 'Happy Birthday' written on it.

Sounding as if fellow ex Denise Richards was also on-hand, Sheen tweeted after the birthday dinner, "Love you and the girls..!!! Thanks for a great birthday dinner!! Great night! xo c"

The message was in response to an earlier tweet by Miss Richards, as she wrote, "Happy Birthday @charliesheen !!!!!!!!!!!"

Teaming up for a sexy new ad campaign, Kim, Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian used their good looks in hopes of selling a little more product.

The E! reality sisters tossed on a little lingerie as they posed for world-renowned photographer Annie Leibovitz for a Kardashian Kollection Sears promotional effort

The photoshoot took place back in May, with Kim writing about the experience on her blog by telling, "What an amazing day! We shot with the living legend herself, Annie Leibovitz! I swear this was such an eye opening day. She shot our Kardashian Kollection for Sears ad campaign!"

The newlywed brunette beauty added, "I can’t give away any details, but we have never been shot like this before and it was soooo fun shooting with Kourtney and Khloe… Mason even made a cameo!"

Meanwhile, Miss Leibovitz was seemingly so taken by the Kardashian sisters that she's hosting a party for the ladies at her New York City studio next week.

She's arguably the biggest pop star on the planet, and Britney Spears was nabbed as the cover girl of the October 2011 issue of Glamour UK.

The "Hold It Against Me" singer posed for a playful spread for the magazine while giving a rare interview in which she talks about her London tour and turning 30-years-old in December.

Set to hit newsstands on Thursday (September 8), highlights from Britney's interview are as follows. For more, be sure to visit Glamour UK!

On the possibility of Prince William and Kate Middleton attending one of her concerts at O2 arena in London:

"That would be amazing. That would be really crazy and cool. I think they’re a beautiful couple. Unfortunately I didn’t get to watch the wedding but I heard it was beautiful."

On hoping to get more intelligent as time progresses:

"I think the older you get, the wiser you get. I can’t wait. I’m really excited and definitely gonna celebrate and do something spectacular. I’m gonna be in South America so I’ll have to do something pretty fun. A carnival of Britney?’"

As the saying goes - she got it from her momma! Doing some bonding in their bikinis, Audrina Patridge and her mother Lynn were spotted at a Malibu, California beach on Wednesday (August 31).

Enjoying the sunny west coast locale, the pair sported matching teeny teal two pieces as they took to their midweek stroll along the shore with Audrina also tossing on a hot pink swimsuit during the morning romp.

Looking to have recovered from a nasty bee sting on her left foot incurred during a barefoot walk the day before, the fabulously fit mom and daughter duo were all smiles for the impending shutterbugs.

As for what is next on Audrina's agenda? She's heading to Sin City, as she revealed via Twitter, writing, Whose going to Vegas this weekend??!!!.... If so stop by vanity at the hard rock September 3rd!! Xo."

Escaping for a south of the border Labor Day weekend getaway, Nick Jonas and Delta Goodrem were spotted enjoying a holiday in Los Cabos, Mexico.

The "Camp Rock" hunk and his Aussie singer girlfriend took to the pool at their luxury resort on Sunday (September 4), with both Nick and Delta showing off their swimsuit figures while lounging on recliners and taking a dip in the refreshing water.

The trip to Mexico comes just after Nick was asked about his ladylove during a recent interview with "Good Day New York," as the show's host said, “Is there a special lady in your life?”

Not feeling the need to keep the romance under wraps, the soon-to-be 19-year-old replied, “There is yeah, absolutely. I’m very pleased."

Unwilling to go any further when asked for more details, the chivalrous JoBros rocker simply said, "I’m in a great place and very happy and thrilled to be doing what I love and to have someone who cares for me.”
