Ashton Kutcher, Demi Moore, Gabourey Sidibe and Donna Karan were just a few familiar faces at the after-party for the Cinema Society, DKNY and DeLeon Tequila's screening of No Strings Attached at the Soho Grand Thursday.

Though absent from the screening, star of the flick Natalie Portman was certainly in the thoughts of her co-star Kutcher.

"I'm not the star of this film," he told reporters.

"Natalie Portman is an absolute rock star, and for me, this film was an opportunity to star with Natalie Portman."

Miss America Teresa Scanlan: 'Age Doesn't Matter'

Poison Ivy trekked to Lavo Thursday night to chat with the newly-crowned Miss America Teresa Scanlan at an Artistry Beauty event.

"Age doesn't matter," the 17-year old told us, of her controversially young age.

"I wanted to be Miss America, and I thought: 'Why should I wait? Let me be an example to people my age that you can accomplish your goals at any age'."

Scanlan added that her dream wasn't always to be Miss America.

"When I was ten, I wanted to be president of the United States," Scanlan said, noting that she still intends to become a criminal prosecutor, and a judge.

"Miss America is good training for president," Scanlan added.

"It's good practice getting people to vote [for you]!"
