You might recognize Marlo Thomas from her breakthrough role as Ann Marie on 1960s TV show That Girl, or as Jennifer Aniston's mom on Friends. The daughter of actor Danny Thomas, Marlo started her career with a teaching degree, but acting proved to be her passion. Still, she's always found time to work with children, penning books and producing the gender-stereotype-busting recording, Free to Be . . . You and Me, which a certain wee Bella used to love.
Now 72, Marlo knows how to keep life interesting. In a recent interview, the actress, who has been married to talk show host Phil Donahue for almost 30 years, dished on the secret of a successful marriage. "Phil and I are still very interested in each other. We talk about things all the times. We take baths together." Good to know.
To get Marlo's old-school look, it's all about eye-grazing bangs, voluminous locks with layers, and lots and lots of black mascara. Try a matte peach lipstick, on the lips and cheeks, like Sue Devitt Balanced Matte Lipstick in Babylon ($20). And if you really want to amp up the look, for a modernly Marlo style, try a rich ginger-toned hair color, like L'Oreal Feria Multi-Faceted Hair Color in Brazilian Brown ($10).

Last night's NYC screening of Charlie Wilson's War was a formal affair with not a whole lot of color at all on the red carpet. Tom Hanks was there with one of his costars and fellow Golden Globe nominees, Philip Seymour Hoffman, but not Julia Roberts. While their leading lady wasn't around, a breakthrough redheaded actress with a gorgeous smile (and GG acting nominee) Amy Adams looked great in her LBD. Meanwhile, always love Steve Martin — even though my disdain for fedoras is no big secret he looks kinda awesome in his. Considering the recognition that Tom, Philip and Amy are getting for their roles this year, methinks we'll be seeing a lot of them in fancy wear as award season ramps up.

We have not seen Charlize Theron in a while but she has been busy making films as well as producing a pet project called East of Havana which premiered last night in NY. It's a documentary that looks at the Cuban Hip-Hop scene and youth movement. Charlize says that she was inspired by the young people who risked their lives by participating in the film. Here's more:
"I think the younger generation is starting to say, 'You know what, it doesn't work. We're not happy. We want to have freedom of speech. We want to be able to travel,'" she said.
Though "East of Havana" has political overtones, Theron said she didn't set out to make the film with an agenda in mind. She let the political discussion happen organically.
"I find sometimes when you let people speak, when you go into a country like that, naturally you'll get the best insight on the political situation," she said. "Just don't force people to talk about it. We never did that."
As always, Charlize looked super slick and stylish at the event. Be prepared to see lots more of the actress in 2007. She has four films coming out this year alone! For more pics of the premiere including Bill Pullman, Donna Karan, Marlo Thomas, Justin Theroux, and Bernadette Peters just read more
