Party time for Jason Statham

 

Party boy

It may be time for a break for Jason Statham and Rosie Hungtington Whitely. Sources tell The New York Daily News that the Expendables star got sloppy drunk over the weekend and began hitting on women at Dorrian’s Red Hand (the Upper East Side bar made infamous by so-called Preppie Killer Robert Chambers). The snitch said the Brit could barely stand when he arrived via taxi at his hotel, the Waldorf-Astoria, at around 4 a.m.

Mommy time

Paula Garces has more on her plate than promoting Devious Maids. The actress (who plays murdered housekeeper Flora) is expecting with entrepreneur husband Antonio Hernandez. Garces, 39, has a grown daughter from a previous relationship.

Pieces of history

Johnny Depp (as Tonto) and Armie Hammer (as The Lone Ranger) fight for justice in their upcoming film, but their ancestors did it for real. According to Ancestry.com, the Lone Ranger stars descend from historic freedom fighters. The site’s historians discovered Hammer is a descendent of Cherokee leader and peace advocate Chief Kanagatucko. Depp’s eighth great-grandmother was Elizabeth Key, the first slave in the American colonies to sue for her freedom and win.

That’s teamwork
