Leonardo DiCaprio and Jonah Hill: Django Unchained co-stars on Sydney Harbour - 31st December 2012

Leonardo DiCaprio and Jonah Hill enjoyed the weather during a boat trip on Sydney Harbour last Friday. The Django Unchained co-stars were with Hollywood friends Lukas Haas and Kevin Connolly. Girls about were in bikinis of course. Earlier in the day they arrived in lear jet with Jamie Foxx, which Media Man understands was organised by our friends at The Star (parent company Echo Entertainment), where the celebrities will be spending New Year's Eve tonight. They'll be joining a swag of other stars including Chace Crawford, Matthew Morrison, Colton Haynes and Samantha Ronson, who will be likely making appearances at Marquee, with a possibility of ducking into Cherry and grabbing a few drinks. We heard a little something about James Bond or Bond girls, but more on that later. Maybe later Leo and friends might play a bit of poker too.

After New Year's Eve is done and dusted many will fly back to the U.S so they can also enjoy NYE celebrations on their own soil. Hollywood or Las Vegas anyone?


Cherry nightclub at The Star enjoys James Bond theme on NYE with Human Statue Bodyart entertainment - 1st January 2013

Last night mega popular nightclub at The Star, Cherry, enjoyed a world class James Bond 'Goldfinger' inspired theme thanks to performances by Human Statue Bodyart.

High roller VIP's and celebs enjoyed dance performances by 'Goldfinger' influenced dancers (Anastasia and Victoria) while 'fem bots' (female robots) worked the room.

The hired entertainment was a huge success, and something tells us that word of these Human Statue Bodyart creations is going to travel to Las Vegas, Hollywood, Macau and beyond. How do we know you asked? A little birdy told us.

There's no photos available of the performances, due to strict policy from The Star, however there's a few photos of the entertainers made up that were taken prior to the performance, so you will just have to let your imagine run wild about how cool the club performances are.

Special thanks to Michelle at The Star for making it all happen, event management, security, and catering and service from Fuel and 24/7 Sports Bar who helped make the night all the more enjoyable for the hard working entertainment and support staff

See you all back soon at the swag of entertainment facilities at The Star.

Finally, a safe and Happy New Year to all our readers across Australia and around the globe.
