Oh, baby!

Natalie Portman and her baby boy Aleph were spotted enjoying some mommy-and-me time on Friday, as the pair headed to a play date in Pasadena, Calif.

Portman and her husband Benjamin Millepied welcomed their firstborn back in June 2011. They were married last summer in an intimate Jewish ceremony in Big Sur.

The Black Swan star, who is gearing up for at least three big movie releases in 2013, including the Thor sequel, was recently named by Forbes as Hollywood’s best actress for the buck.

Kristen Stewart ($40.60 for every dollar) and Amy Adams ($22.60 for every dollar) round out the top three actresses in the report, while Shia LaBeouf topped all actors in the category ($35.80 for every dollar).

The Hottest Stripper Moments in Film: Salma Hayek, Jessica Biel and Natalie Portman (PHOTOS)

Salma Hayek’s done it three times. Demi Moore turned heads in 1996. And this past summer, Channing Tatum and his Magic Mike crew joined the club.

Whether it’s a sparkly ensemble or a pair of leather pants and a sexy bra — or in Tatum’s case, just a tie — Hollywood has stripped down on the big screen for many, many years, and Celebuzz is taking a look back at some of the best ever caught on film.

As Lola, Hayek donned a skimpy outfit and strutted her stuff on stage in the 2011 French drama Americano. The actress, now 46, took on the role some 15 years after mesmerizing George Clooney and Quentin Tarantino’s characters in the horror flick From Dusk Till Dawn. Hayek also pranced around as Serendipity in the 1999 picture Dogma, starring Ben Affleck and Matt Damon.

In 2009, Jessica Biel took it all off in Powder Blue, in which she plays a single mother who dances to support her son, who is in a coma. The film, which only saw limited release, featured an all-star ensemble that included the late Patrick Swayze, Forest Whitaker, Ray Liotta, Lisa Kudrow and Les MiserablesEddie Redmayne.

From Natalie Portman’s gloomy yet sexy performance in Closer to Jessica Alba’s leather-clad number in Sin City, these stars have demonstrated that disrobing on screen need not be tasteless or disturbing, but rather artistic and striking.

For a closer look at some of the hottest stripper moments on film, check out the gallery, above. Did we miss any of your favorite stripteases from the big screen? Share your picks below.

Kate Winslet, Ned Rocknroll Married: 8 Secret Hollywood Weddings (PHOTOS)

Given the fast-paced, round-the-clock world we live in, it’s always surprising when a high-profile Hollywood celebrity manages to pull off a secret wedding.

Oscar-winning beauty Kate Winslet did just that when she married longtime beau Ned Rocknroll earlier this month in New York. (According to reports, not even the couple’s parents knew about the ceremony. In fact, Winslet’s Titanic co-star Leonardo DiCaprio gave her away, instead.)

In fact, many celebrities tied the knot this year without all of the magazine covers and media hoopla to prove it.

Pulling a similar move in September were Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds, whose intimate South Carolina nuptials were so low-key, the couple still hasn’t really addressed the ceremony to the media.

Which other stars have managed to marry in secret?

Get your jaws ready to drop, because Celebuzz has pulled together the eight most-memorable private ceremonies.

Check them out in the gallery, above.

2012 Year in Review: The 20 Biggest Weddings, Breakups and Makeups

Just like the rest of the world, love makes the Hollywood go round.

This year had no shortage of romance among the stars. From Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel saying “I do” under the stars in Southern Italy, to Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively secretly getting hitched on a sprawling Southern plantation, many buzzed-about celebrity couples found their happily-ever-after in 2012.

Even some of the industry’s most beloved golden girls turned bridal. Natalie Portman tied the knot with her Benjamin Millepied in a traditional Jewish ceremony in Big Sur, Calif., where Anne Hathaway also walked down the aisle at sunset to wed Adam Shulman.

Drew Barrymore vowed for forever with Will Kopleman at her Montecito, Calif. estate, while Carey Mulligan took the plunge with Mumford & Sons musician Marcus Mumford in the countryside of Somerset, England.

But wedded bliss didn’t bless everyone, with many longtime lovers calling it quits in 2012. After almost seven years of marriage, Heidi Klum and Seal announced their separation in January before officially filing for divorce three months later.

Parting ways after five wedded years, Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes — long labeled Tomkat — reached a surprisingly speedy divorce settlement after just 11 days in July, with the actress receiving primary custody of the couple’s six-year-old daughter, Suri.

But not all of Hollywood’s bitter breakups stuck. Back in July, Kristen Stewart was infamously snapped smooching her married Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders, seemingly ruining her three-year relationship with Twilight co-star Robert Pattinson. But Twihard broken hearts were soon on the mend, as Stewart and Pattinson were spotted canoodling in Los Angeles, Calif., in October.

Now, as the countdown begins to 2013, look back at this year’s biggest weddings, breakups and makeups.

Which wedding took the cake? What split was most shocking? And which makeups were meant to be? Share your thoughts in comments below.

The Daily Buzz: Exclusive Anne Hathaway Wedding Details. Plus, ‘Dancing With the Stars’ Pro Kym Johnson Is In The Studio (VIDEO)

On Monday’s The Daily Buzz exclusive details inside Anne Hathaway’s fairytale million-dollar wedding.

The Les Miserables star often wears Valentino on Hollywood’s red carpets so it was no surprise she chose the designer to create the most important gown of her life.

Held in Big Sur, Calif. on Saturday, Hathaway’s ceremony was a lavish affair with a focus on white and with a rustic feel.

The couple spent more than $100,000 on flowers alone.

“The floral arrangements and wedding décor were simple and rustic,” a source told Celebuzz.

The flowers were arranged by The Velvet Garden, a floral design studio that specialized in high-end one of a kind designs. The florists previously created arrangements for the weddings of Drew Barrymore, Reese Witherspoon and Natalie Portman.

And, TDB gives you all your Dancing with the Stars news. In today’s episode The Buzz goes inside Helio Castroneves and Melissa Rycroft‘s dance rehearsals.

“Her attention span is quite different now,”  partner Tony Dovolani jokes about Rycroft. “It used to be like a mosquito, now actually, she pays attention.”

“Tony’s calmed down, a little bit,” Melissa says.

Plus, on Monday’s TBD before DWTS’s pro Kym Johnson hits the ballroom floor with Joey Fatone, she’s dishing about the All-Star season. Will the two-time champ survive the much anticipated second week of tv’s favorite dance competition?

Inside Anne Hathaway’s ‘Rustic’ Million Dollar Wedding (EXCLUSIVE)

The wedding between Anne Hathaway and Adam Shulman was a lavish affair with a white, pink and rustic theme — set against the romantic and sprawling backdrop of the Big Sur, Calif. coastline.

180 guests — 18 tables with ten people each — sat amongst more than $100,000 of flowers in a private marquee erected especially for the reception.

Each table had 12 mini centerpieces.

“The floral arrangements and wedding décor were simple and rustic,” a source told Celebuzz, noting they were transported from Los Angeles to the Central Coast of California for the occasion.

The flowers were arranged by The Velvet Garden, a floral design studio that specialized in high-end one of a kind designs. The florists previously created arrangements for the weddings of Drew Barrymore, Reese Witherspoon and Natalie Portman.

“The flowers took over a week to create,” added the source.

More exclusive details after the jump.

The wedding was designed by the same planner who handled Portman’s Aug. 4 nuptials to Benjamin Millepied, Yifat Oren.

The reception featured the San Fransisco-based jazz trio ‘Americano Social Club’ for the first hour, before a DJ from Los Angeles had guests dancing the night away.

“The band had no idea who they were performing for,” said a source.

“Someone told them that they were playing at the wedding of ‘Catwoman’ and the bassist guessed ‘Michelle Pheiffer!?’

“They found out it was Anne’s wedding just 30 minutes before the wedding.”

Two photographers captured every moment and even used vintage cameras in keeping with the theme of the occasion.

Hathaway, 29, chose a custom Valentino gown, the same designer who last week described the Oscar nominee as being “like my daughter.” The groom, 31, wore a traditional tux.

Earlier, the bride and groom prepared for the wedding in a five-star luxury hotel.

An onlooker said: “Adam was so excited. He posed for photos with his mother who was wearing a navy blue gown with chiffon shoulders.”

The weekend started with a rehearsal dinner at the Ventana Inn and Spa.

The location of the nuptials was kept secret from the guests who were taken to the venue via shuttles. Guests had to wear neon green bracelets to gain access to the buses.

One vendor who worked on the Les Misérables star’s wedding told Celebuzz he estimated the occasion cost more than $1 million.
