Carrie Anne Moss in town for MIFF


Carrie Anne Moss is fit and fabulous. The Matrix star strutted her toned stuff at the Olympia Theater at the Gusman Center for the Performing Arts in downtown Miami Saturday night. The Canadian actress and mother of three, 45, partook in a Q&A for her indie, Mexican dramedy The Boy Who Smells Like Fish, about a young man suffering from an odd malady, for the Miami International Film Festival.

Also in attendance: the film’s costar Zoe Kravitz, the daughter of Lenny Kravitz and Lisa Bonet.

New goals

Carnie Wilson burned some calories Saturday night at Magic City Casino performing with her old band Wilson Phillips (sister Wendy Wilson and Chynna Phillips). But, really, weight doesn’t matter so much anymore. She told People she’s at peace with her body. “I’m not striving for perfection. This has to be for the rest of my life,” said Carnie, who lost 40 pounds due to lap band surgery in January 2012. “Every year I’m making more progress now — and that’s my goal.”

Oui, oui

Cast members from French reality show The Angels of Reality will show up for a bowl-a-thon 5-7 p.m. Thursday at Diamond Strike Lanes in Pompano Beach. The premise: a group of attractive people are filmed while living in a mansion in South Beach as they pursue the American dream: nabbing careers in the modeling, entertainment and fashion industries. Guests can be filmed if they like or bowl for $10; proceeds benefit a pet charity in France.

Live and let live

Instead of just meeting reality stars, be one. On Thursday from 6-10 p.m. you can audition to be a part of Survivor. CBS4 and Gulfstream Park Racing and Casino are sponsoring an open casting call for the next installment of this seemingly never-ending series, to be shot in the Philippines from May to August. Go to the Sport of Kings area within the park, 901 S. Federal Hwy., Hallandale Beach. Organizers say each person should plan to speak for two minutes about why you are awesome. Don’t forget photo IDs.

    Mag: Lindsey Vonn and Tiger Woods’ ex wife are friends

    No bad blood here. Though Elin Nordegren is unlikely to befriend one of her ex-husband Tiger Woods’ conquests (even though we’re sure that Perkins waitress was/is a great human being), Us Weekly is reporting Nordegren has no issue with Olympic skier Lindsey Vonn. In fact, the two are friends. Not besties by a stretch, but after spending time doing parental things, the two have found they get along. A source tells the mag: “You'd think it would be weird, but ... they talk all the time. Elin likes that Lindsey is a strong woman.”
