Talking points

Leonardo DiCaprio

Undercover Leo

Leonardo DiCaprio
and Blake Lively brought their undercover romance to Los Angeles, trying to keep things low-key with a dinner date in the east side’s Los Feliz neighborhood, according to People magazine. The pair reportedly dined out at the restaurant Umami Burger, where Lively “looked very happy and kept smiling,” a source says, adding that DiCaprio appeared to enjoy himself, too. “He gently grabbed her hand at one point and he seemed very into Blake.”

Feeling blue from being blue (literally)

Zoe Saldana admits that the success of “Avatar” was too much for her. “The year after ‘Avatar’ was just emotionally overwhelming. I was traveling all over the world, waking up in different time zones. Your body gets exhausted, and by the end of the year I just collapsed,” Saldana tells Latina magazine. “I was sitting in my hotel room, and I couldn’t stop crying. I couldn’t stay awake. I must have slept for an entire month.” Things are much better now that Saldana has learned to take some time for herself, though: “I just stay at home and do absolutely nothing,” Zoe says. “I don’t shower if I don’t want to. I don’t answer e-mails. It’s a healthy way of being selfish.”

You can still dress like Winehouse

Despite her untimely death last week, Amy Winehouse’s clothing collections for Fred Perry will still see the light of day. “When Fred Perry came to us to ask what we would like to do with the new collection it was natural to continue,” Mitch Winehouse, Amy’s father, says in a statement to Women’s Wear Daily. “Amy loved working on both collections and would want them to be made available.” Proceeds from the first of the two collections will go to the Amy Winehouse Foundation.
