Beyoncé and Jay-Z may have taken their controversial trip to Cuba more than a month ago, but she recently released new — and totally adorable — images of their anniversary getaway on Tumblr. Beyoncé and Jay-Z cuddled up in a few of the snaps, while Beyoncé went solo in others.
Since they wrapped up their getaway in April, it's been all about business for Beyoncé. Her bikini ads for H&M were released, she kicked off her Mrs. Carter Show world tour, promoted her voice role in Epic, and walked the red carpet at the Met Gala. While the tour continues, Beyoncé is now facing pregnancy rumors after she canceled a performance in Belgium earlier this week. She returned to the stage on Wednesday and is expected to perform in Zurich tonight. Regardless of the speculation about baby number two, one thing is for sure — these pics of her and Jay-Z are too cute, so click through to see them all!
Leonardo DiCaprio and Tobey Maguire share the big screen as pals Jay Gatsby and Nick Carraway in The Great Gatsby, which hit theaters last week and premiered at the Cannes Film Festival on Wednesday, but their real-life relationship started long ago. Leo and Tobey have been friends for 25 years, after meeting at an audition in the late '80s.
Leo Recalls Their First Meeting Fondly
"After I met Tobey at an audition, I felt like I wanted this guy to be my friend. I remember driving back from school and he was doing Hot Rod Brown Class Clown with Whoopi Goldberg outside Hollywood High. It was a high school. And I jumped out of my car in the middle of the scene, as they were shooting, practically." Leo added, "I was like, 'Tobey! Tobey! Tobey! Give me your number.' He was like, 'Yeah, who are you again?'"

Yesterday, David Beckham announced his plans to retire from soccer at the end of his season with Paris Saint-Germain. He'll play his final game at the end of the month, and while we all mourn the loss of our favorite shirtless guy on the field, his wife, Victoria Beckham, is looking toward the "next chapter" in their lives. Victoria shared her sentiment in a statement on behalf of herself and the couple's four children. Here's what Victoria said about David's retirement:
"The children and I are so proud of David; it's been an incredible journey for us all as we have watched him play at clubs all over the world throughout the last 15 years. Myself and the children have cheered him from the stands, as he has held high trophies with his teams at Manchester United, Real Madrid, AC Milan, LA Galaxy, and Paris St.-Germain. This was not an easy decision to make, and to me and the children he will always be an amazing sportsman and a devoted husband and father. He is, and will always remain, a true ambassador for sport and is not just an inspiration to myself and our children but for millions of people worldwide. We are all excited about the next chapter in our lives and the adventures we will explore as a family."
Victoria added today on Twitter: "Thank you for all your lovely messages, we are so proud of you David." She also shared this sweet snap of the couple.
Tiger Woods and his girlfriend, Lindsey Vonn, kicked off the week with a relaxing afternoon on the water in Palm Beach. On Tuesday, the duo went boating on Tiger's yacht, Solitude, with his kids, Charlie and Sam. Tiger lounged shirtless while he fished off the side of the vessel, and Lindsey was spotted snapping pictures from the dock in her bikini. The couple are back to Tiger's home base in Florida after traveling to NYC to attend the Met Gala earlier this month. Tiger will be on the go again soon, though, since he's set to host his annual Tiger Jam charity poker tournament in Las Vegas this Friday and Saturday.
Tiger and Lindsey have been going strong since revealing their relationship in March and have showed mutual support for each other publicly. Lindsey's had Tiger by her side as she recovers from the knee injury she sustained during the skiing world championships in Austria in February, and she cheered him on during the Masters last month.
Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder were both in attendance at today's CW upfronts presentation in NYC. Nina and Ian walked the red carpet separately but during the event they shared the same stage even after news of their split was announced earlier this month. They were together for three years, though they became one of the many TV costar couples that couldn't make it work off screen when they called it quits.
Nina and Ian are in the Big Apple on behalf of The Vampire Diaries, which will air its season finale tonight — make sure to tune in for our LIVE Vampire Diaries viewing party tonight at 4:30 p.m. PDT/7:30 p.m. EDT.
David Beckham had a smile on his face as he left the Paris Saint-Germain training facilities in Paris today. It was one of the last times he'll be visiting the field since earlier today he announced his plans to retire at the end of the season. David's been in the soccer spotlight since he was 14, and he'll wrap up his successful career in his final game with PSG later this month. We'll certainly miss seeing David on the field, especially since he had a hot habit of going shirtless. Hopefully this weekend's match will provide one last glimpse at his abs — and a whole lot of cuteness in the stands from his adoring family.
The cast of The Great Gatsby kicked off the glamorous Cannes Film Festival at their premiere in France tonight — and they didn't let a little rain stop them! They stayed dry from the drizzle, which really just added to the drama of the event, with oversize umbrellas. And while many stars held onto their own, others got a little help from handlers decked out in black-tie.
It was a big night in France as the Cannes Film Festival kicked off with the opening ceremony and the premiere of The Great Gatsby!

Beyoncé Knowles will return to the stage in Antwerp, Belgium, tonight after canceling her Tuesday show in the same location. Yesterday, it was revealed that Beyoncé would not be performing due to "exhaustion" and would instead be following doctor's orders to rest. The announcement came just as rumors of Beyoncé's second pregnancy started swirling this week, though the singer hasn't commented on the news. She did, however, take to her Tumblr page to apologize to fans, writing, "I've never postponed a show in my life. It was very hard for me." She added, "I'm feeling much better now and I'm ready to give you a great show."

The honeymoon continued for Keira Knightley and her new husband, James Righton, in Corsica today.

For her dressed-down swim, she was joined by shirtless James, who showered her with kisses in the water. They've been all about the sweet PDA during their romantic getaway and showed similar affection while enjoying lunch and strolling the beach last week.

It was an extraspecial weekend for Anna Paquin and her family since it was her first time celebrating Mother's Day! They got a head start on the fun on Saturday, when they met up with friends for a party at a Malibu park. Anna and her husband, Stephen Moyer, took turns holding onto their boy and girl twins, whose names have not been revealed, and mingling with guests. The babies were born in September and since then have joined their parents for shopping trips and strolls along Venice Beach, though their sweet faces have been kept mostly under wraps. It hasn't been all about parenthood for Anna and Stephen, though, since they've also been working on the sixth season of True Blood. The series doesn't return until June 16, but you can check out pictures from True Blood season six now to gear up for the next installment!
Hilary Duff escaped to Mexico with her family over the weekend to celebrate Mother's Day.

Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers out there, it can be a hard job but the best! Good work!" Hilary also shared her thoughts on motherhood with People recently, adding that, "I think asking for help on a tired day isn't a sign of weakness. A lot of changes have come into your life quickly and it's important to take time for yourself!"
Hilary wore a bikini during the sunny days, which included hanging out poolside, hitting the beach, and kicking a ball around the grass. Hilary is just one of the many famous moms who celebrated Mother's Day in a special way including Jessica Alba, who went out to brunch with her family of four.
Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart checked out of their NYC hotel, hopped into a waiting car, and headed to JFK to catch a flight Wednesday. They didn't go straight to the airport, though — their driver stopped en route to pick them up a few slices of pizza!
Although they were both in the Big Apple, Kristen attended the Met Gala on Monday night without Rob by her side. He missed out on a fun evening with friends since Tom Sturridge and Sienna Miller were also at the bash and ended up leaving with Kristen. They weren't the only famous pals that Kristen spent time with — she arrived with Cameron Diaz and Stella McCartney! Both Kristen and Cameron were decked out in looks by the designer, with Kristen in a lace-embroidered jumpsuit and Cameron in a cobalt-blue caped dress.
The NYC visit wasn't all about the red carpet for Kristen, since she reportedly also checked out a performance of Orphans, which Tom stars in, on Broadway. Rob was also rumored to have been in the audience during a recent, but separate, showing.
Jennifer Aniston went casual in cargos, flip-flops, and her Tom Ford bag to shop Madison Avenue in NYC yesterday. She's on the East Coast promoting her new Living Proof web series, Good Hair Day, and attended a launch event for the show Wednesday. Jennifer was joined by her hairstylist Chris McMillan for the press day, during which she talked about learning "what not to do" with her hair after cutting it off in her teens. Jennifer also revealed that she loves Kate Moss and Gisele Bündchen's looks, though she might be taking on a different style soon — Chris shared that Jennifer "wants to do a drastic look for" an upcoming role. He's not the only person on Jennifer's team who's talking about her lately, since her yoga teacher Mandy Ingber recently told us that Jennifer is an "amazing, positive force."
Gwyneth Paltrow carried a Céline bag and sported Isabel Marant sneakers and a white IRO leather jacket yesterday when she stepped out in NYC. It's been a whirlwind week so far for the star, who kicked things off at the Met Gala on Monday. Gwyneth wore a pink Valentino gown for the annual fashion event, which she attended with her husband, Chris Martin. On Tuesday, Gwyneth was back in the spotlight for a visit to the SoHo Apple store, where she and her pal Jessica Seinfeld participated in an hour-long Q&A about the new Goop City Guides app. Gwyneth revealed that her daily routine includes writing and researching for Goop while her children, Apple and Moses, are at school. She practiced what she preaches yesterday, wearing an Up by Jawbone wristband after it was featured in Goop last month.
During the chat, Gwyneth also joked that the highlight of her Met Gala night was "going home and taking my shoes off" and spoke about her love for public transportation. Gwyneth said she "rides the subway in London all the time" but that "the last time I rode the subway in New York was a year-and-a-half ago."
The glamorous — and long — red carpet at the Met Gala gives stars the chance to make grand entrances as they head inside the Metropolitan Museum of Art for the annual Costume Institute Benefit. Once inside, though, it's all about mixing and mingling for the famous faces, and Monday night brought just that. Jennifer Lopez cozied up to fellow songstress Gwen Stefani while Beyoncé Knowles greeted Gavin Rossdale with a kiss. Emily Blunt and Anne Hathaway teamed up next to designer Tom Ford, and Olivia Wilde and Katie Holmes shared a table with Calvin Klein's Francisco Costa. There are lots more celebrity snaps from inside the big bash — click through to see them all!
Zac Efron unbuttoned his shirt and showed off his six-pack while filming Townies in LA yesterday. He got into the sports scenes with a few props including a basketball and baseball bat, but the real focus was on his tanned abs. Zac's been busy filming the college-set comedy since March, though his scenes haven't been all hard work. Zac kissed a costar during one rowdy take last month and has also sported a bathrobe and other costumes for the cameras. He did take a break from the on-set fun to promote a more serious project, At Any Price, at the Tribeca Film Festival after debuting the movie at the Venice Film Festival last year.
