    Rose McGowan and Evan Rachel Wood chat at a Hollywood Foreign Press Luncheon on Tuesday, August 11th

    They both possess a certain mid-century style, and a bit of swagger. They can wear polka dots. Not everyone can. Are those polka dots on Ms. McGowan? We're not going to think too long on that.

    Oh, and they both famously dated Marilyn Manson. Pictured: Rose McGowan -- she of the machine-gun-leg and hit witch drama. And sporting the dramatic, "Mad Men"-esque up-do is Evan Rachel Wood, who had a very nice voice in "Across the Universe." The snapshot is of them talking at a Hollywood Foreign Press Luncheon on Tuesday, August 11th.

    Phew. Now we've got the stars down (we didn't mention some other celebrities present: Warren Beatty, Chris Pine, Carla Gugino Dylan McDermott, Rex Lee, Hugh Dancy, Eva Longoria Parker). The meat of the stars-come-out-in-daytime to-do? The organization behind the Golden Globes gathered together big names and a bevy of supporters at the Beverly Hills Hotel to hand out lots of grants to various arts groups.

    Some of those groups: CSU Long Beach, The American Film Institute, Inner-City Arts, Film Independent, Inc., Ghetto Film School. The funds are going to various cinema-related causes including job training and scholarships and film preservation. Eye the entire list for beneficiaries, amounts, and what the money will be supporting.
