New York has long had a star-studded jury pool and Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is due to join a long list of celebrities who have made the trip to lower Manhattan to sit with hundreds of other potential jurors.
That list has included directors Woody Allen and Spike Lee, actors Matthew Broderick, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathleen Turner, comedians Jon Stewart and Conan O'Brien, and TV news anchors Tom Brokaw and Barbara Walters.
Trump said last week he’s looking forward to reporting for duty on Monday. The real estate mogul and reality TV star has been called previously but his campaign said he hadn’t received those summonses.
On the Taylor squad
Another day, another addition to Taylor Swift's all-star concert squad.
The pop singer welcomed Julia Roberts and renowned folk artist Joan Baez to the stage on Saturday night, and this time Taylor was the one who was star-struck, according to Access Hollywood.
"Tonight Joan Baez and Julia Roberts danced it out to Style. These two women are my heroes. What an honor," she said of the two legends, captioning an Instagram shot of Julia and Joan in front of the sold-out crowd at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California.
Going through motions
Ben Affleck may have rung in his 43rd birthday with estranged wife Jennifer Garner and their kids — but it seems their reunion wasn't without a little awkwardness, according to one onlooker.
Affleck and Garner took their three kids — Violet, 9, Seraphina, 6, and Samuel, 3 — to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter to celebrate his birthday Saturday at Universal Orlando Studios. But "neither of them looked too happy," an onlooker at one of the shops told People magazine.
"They didn't even look at each other. They were talking to the kids, but they didn't talk or even look in each other's direction," the onlooker said. "They seemed like strangers — awkward strangers."
And baby makes three
New parents and newlyweds Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis had a family night out in New York City on Saturday, during Kunis' birthday weekend (she turned 32 on Friday).
They were spotted strolling around Manhattan's Upper West Side neighborhood with daughter Wyatt, making some very non-Hollywood stops.
First, they grabbed some yogurt. "Ashton was pushing the stroller and bouncing their baby, and Mila seemed cute and animated," an observer told People.
The next stop was Bareburger — the upscale burger chain. Want fries with that?
