Robert Pattinson has come out of hiding, reportedly stepping out for the night this weekend with pals at a bar near Reese Witherspoon‘s ranch in Ojai, Calif, where he’s apparently been lying low since news broke of girlfriend Kristen Stewart‘s infidelity, according to Us Weekly. Pattinson “seemed to be having an amazing time” having “a few drinks and laughs” with a group of male friends, a patron at the Deer Lodge bar says. “He looked like a guy that was trying to enjoy himself and get away. Seems like a good kid.”

“Snow White and the Huntsman” director Rupert Sanders reportedly hasn’t seen his wife, Liberty Ross, since news broke of his affair with Kristen Stewart, according to People magazine. “They seemed like a perfectly happy family. This was devastating for her,” a source says of the model-turned-actress, who has two children with Sanders. “She’s been focused just on her kids through this. It’s what she cares about most.”

Amanda Bynes is facing accusations of a fourth hit-and-run collision in as many months. According to TMZ, a Los Angeles woman claims Bynes rear-ended her and — after a brief conversation during which the actress “looked like a hot mess” — took off without exchanging insurance information. The woman says Bynes “seemed nervous about” exchanging info and kept insisting the damage to the woman’s car didn’t look that bad. Bynes was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence in April after she hit a sheriff’s car, and she was allegedly involved in two hit-and-run incidents in May.

Miley Cyrus says her impressive vintage engagement ring was all fiancé Liam Hemsworth‘s idea. “I had no input,” she tells Marie Clare. “I saw it online at one point and thought it was really pretty. I just love that it’s old and has a story. And I’m happy because it doesn’t look like anything else I wear.” The 18-karat ring was hand-cut in the late 1800s. And it sounds like it will be the only thing on her finger for a while: “I don’t really care about the wedding or the piece of paper as much as I do the promise we’ve made to each other,” she says. “And we want to have a long engagement.”

Prince William may be used to living his life in public as a member of the royal family, but that doesn’t mean he’s thrilled about public displays of affection — especially when it’s broadcast on a massive screen at an Olympic event. “I was absolutely dreading they were going to come and show myself and my wife, and that would have been very embarrassing,” William says of the idea of he and Kate Middleton showing up on the “kiss cam” at London’s Olympic Velodrome. So far, they’ve evaded the cam’s gaze.

While tabloid stories claim he’s dealing with a massive heroin addiction, Macaulay Culkin made an appearance over the weekend at Natalie Portman‘s wedding in Big Sur, Calif., according to Us Weekly. Culkin and Portman have been close friends for years, and the “Home Alone” star was spotted in February playing with Portman and her infant son, Aleph — right around the time photos surfaced of him looking gaunt and thin, sparking rumors about health issues. “Macaulay Culkin is in perfectly good health,” his rep said at the time. Culkin also popped up this week looking energetic and happy in a YouTube video promoting Macaulay Culkin’s iPod, a monthly party he hosts at a bar in New York City.
