Now Playing in Steven Spielberg's Viewfinder: Rihanna
Steven Spielberg’s latest project stars Rihanna. The director captured the singer during her five-song set at the EIF’s Women’s Cancer Research Fund “Unforgettable Evening” at the Beverly Hilton last week. After the performance (a raincheck from last year, when she fell ill on the day of the event), Spielberg, Kate Capshaw, Rita Wilson and Sheryl Crow went backstage to meet “RiRi.”

“SNL” was dark (repeating the infamous Lana Del Rey episode), so Kristen Wiig and Bobby Moynihan both used the night off to hit Tribeca. They crossed paths at the “Revenge For Jolly” afterparty hosted by Stolichnaya vodka at RDV. Moynihan was workshopping his “punchline face” every time the photographer got near him.

That’s a multi-million dollar (settlement) smile. Charlie Sheen popped up at the Beverly Hills Bar Association’s dinner honoring Marty Singer as 2012 Entertainment Attorney of the Year. He earned it.

Meanwhile, from the west coast, Rumer Willis and Rosario Dawson linked up at “Black November” in Beverly Hills on April 18. Dawson was brought to tears by the environmental drama about a Nigerian community’s crisis with ongoing and repeated oil-related destruction.
