Cameron turned heads with his slim frame thanks to a vegan diet, and Bryan Singer squired MichelleClunie, who is pregnant with his first child. The actress was overheard saying how their relationship is the "most important" in her life and that the duo can't wait to co-parent, while Andy Serkis whispered his opening line from the trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens into THR's ear. Serkis wouldn't say whom he plays in the J.J. Abrams-directed reboot.
