Shailene Woodley in black dress with bright yellow flower pattern

On Saturday Shailene Woodley hit the red carpet with co-star Joseph Gordon-Levitt for the premiere of Snowden during the Zurich Film Festival in Switzerland.

And on Tuesday new photos surfaced of Shailene Woodley as she promoted her biopic about Edward Snowden in Los Angeles. 

The 24-year-old looked beautiful in an eye-catching, knee-length black dress with a large pattern of bright yellow flowers growing up the side.

The star of the Divergent franchise wore light and natural make-up including mascara to frame her hazel eyes and a pop of pink lipstick.

She accessorised with a small gold nose ring plus a black bracelet and a red one on each arm.

The actress plays Snowden's girlfriend, 31-year-old Lindsay Mills, a pole dancer and performance artist.

And even though she is only in eight or nine scenes, Shailene learned how to pole dance to better play Lindsay.

Katy Perry strips NAKED at a polling station but later gets arrested in new parody clip urging fans to vote at US elections

Katy Perry appears to be taking a leaf out of her British beau's book, as she has stripped naked in a new Funny Or Die video urging fans to vote in the US elections.

In the clip, the 31-year-old singer is seen waking from her slumber sporting patriotic pyjamas and messy bed hair, complete with popcorn and a lollipop as she declares: 'I've got some great news: This year, you can look like s**t when you vote.'

Katy then walks to her polling station, passing other voters in their nightwear as she explains: 'Yep, I've briefly scanned the Constitution, and nowhere does it say that you can't just roll out of bed and come to the polls in whatever state you woke up in.

'In the name of democracy, any just-out-of-bed look is A-OK.'
She then proceeds to give examples of what is acceptable, including child's onesie, hunk in kid's briefs, that free XL, T-shirt you got from your bank and covered in slime.

The I Kissed A Girl Singer then spices things up a notch as she declares: 'Or, if you're like me, I sleep naked,' before ripping away her pyjamas to go nude.
With bars protecting her modesty, Katy grins cheekily at the camera as fellow voters gasp and a man behind her drops to the ground in astonishment. 
'Yep, let those babies loose,' she booms, before a pair of police officers strolled over, with one cutting in: 'Alright, ma'am. That's enough of that.'

'No, I read the Constitution and I know I have the right to vote naked, she protests, to which the other arresting officer responds: 'Did you read it, or did you just briefly scan it?'
Katy is then led to a police car, where she finds herself sharing the backseat with a buff and shirtless Joel McHale, who reacts: 'You too?'  
Leaning out of the window, Katy yells to the camera, before being whisked away: 'Scratch that. Gotta wear clothes. My bad. See you at the polls November 8th.'

Liam Hemsworth catches a wave in Malibu during outing with brother Luke


Liam Hemsworth and his elder brother Luke Hemsworth were otherwise occupied.

The Melbourne natives were spotted enjoying a seaside frolic in Malibu and showcasing their well-honed surfing ability.

As he stepped out of the water and carried his Channel Islands surfboard across the sand, the 26-year-old's black Hurley wet-suit clung to his sculpted figure. 

He angled on one wave while it broke, and as his brother swam straight into another one, the The Hunger Games actor swam away.

The 35-year-old wore a black wetsuit of his own, and the seawater gave his hair an attractive spiked appearance. 

The youngest Hemsworth brother's latest film is The Dressmaker, an Australian drama that features him opposite Kate Winslet's title character. 

Based on the 2000 novel by Jerilderie-born writer Rosalie Ham, the film was released in American cinemas last Friday. 
It's slated to open in Australia next month and in Britain the following month. 

Nicky Hilton swamps her post-pregnancy figure in furry green jacket while strolling through NYC

Nicky Hilton was taking advantage of some alone time to run errands in New York City on Monday.
Despite the bulky coat, the 32-year-old managed to look fashion-forward in 'skinny' black jeans paired with a loose-fitting black T-shirt.

The avocado-green coat hid her curves and fell almost to her knees, accentuated by a furry lined hood.
The elder sister of Paris Hilton held her iPhone in her hand, perhaps checking off those items she needed to grab.

Nicky wore mirrored shades that reflected the colour of her coat, and rugged black boots and a chic black handbag finished off her ensemble.

Tom Hanks charms staff at Boston restaurant... then leaves them 'great' gratuity

He knows the value of a good meal due to the fact his father was a cook.

So no wonder generous Tom Hanks decided to reward staff at a Boston restaurant after a satisfying dinner by leaving them a 'great tip' on Monday.

The multimillionaire actor dug deep after he enjoyed a slap up lunch at the private dining room at the upmarket Pier 6 eatery, which sits on the city's harbour.

Big star Tom, 60, even made the effort to charm staff and customers alike by showing off his version the local dialect, with a staff member telling People, 'His Boston accent was a perfect 10.'

The staff member said the actor, perhaps watching his waistline, tucked into the New England clam chowder and lamb gyros during his one hour stay.

And they said his arrival, where he was accompanied by seven underlings, was a complete surprise.

The worker said: A woman made an anonymous reservation requesting the private dining room, and next thing you know, Tom Hanks walks in.

'He was very friendly and gracious with our staff, and a great tipper.'
Sully star Tom, who was casually dressed in a shirt, jeans and hat, can afford to leave sizable tips of course, given he is worth an estimated $350 million

The Forrest Gump favourite even made sure lavished the staff with extra praise as he left, telling them as he left in his cod Boston accent that he 'loved the chowdah.' 

Tom obviously knows a lot about the world of food, as his father Amos was an itinerant cook. After his parents marriage split up in 1960 he, along with his two oldest siblings, stayed with Amos.

Ryan Reynolds looks suave in brown leather jacket as he hops onto motorcycle in New York City

Ryan Reynolds certainly looked cool as he stepped out in New York City for a motorcycle ride on Monday.
The 39-year-old put his best foot forward in a sleek, leather jacket and appeared relaxed as he hopped onto his bike.

Ryan wore a fitted, brown leather jacket, which the actor sported zipped all the way up, coupling it with dark wash jeans.
He also donned low-top, white Converse sneakers, as well as thick-framed, black glasses, and a newsboy cap.
The father-of-one was seen carrying a black motorcycle helmet as he walked along the sidewalk without pregnant wife Blake Lively.

Owen Wilson, rock hard abs as he goes for a swim in Antibes

He has been playing the slightly goofy leading man for nearly two decades.

Monday Owen Wilson proved in real life he is all brawn and sex appeal as he was pictured shirtless in Antibes, France.

The 47-year-old looked lean and mean as he wore just a pair of swimming trunks while joining his holiday pal Jessica Hart. 

The actress proved herself to be irresistible to her holiday pal Owen as he gave her an extremely appreciative glance while they chilled out the Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc, a five star luxury resort in Antibes, France.

The Wedding Crashers star seemed totally unfazed by the fact her boyfriend Stavros Niarchos was on the holiday, as he gazed at the Australian model's peachy posterior in fascination.

Jessica looked phenomenal in a barely-there bikini as she paraded around the pool in the stunning setting at the luxury hotel. 

Her burgundy two-piece clung to her sensational figure in all the right 

places, with a scanty helping of material making for a stunning set.
