Anna Paquin Does Double-Duty While Toting Her Twins
Anna Paquin held tight to both of her 3-month-old babies on a walk in Venice Beach, CA, yesterday. The new mom looked fit as she sipped an organic Synergy drink and chatted with her own mom, Mary Paquin. Anna and Stephen Moyer welcomed the twins back in September. They've remained tight-lipped on the names and genders of their little ones, but reportedly, a boy and a girl have joined the Paquin-Moyer family, which already includes Stephen's son Billy and daughter Lilac. Anna's focus may be on her new role as a mom right now, but she'll be back on the big screen when her latest film, Straight A's, comes out in December. The Oscar winner will be starring alongside Luke Wilson and Ryan Phillippe, and she'll be back beside her leading man, Stephen, when their HBO hit, True Blood, returns for a sixth season next Summer.

Ryan Phillippe took his children Ava and Deacon to lunch in La on Saturday. The actor has been busy completing work on a couple of films, like Revenge For Jolly! and Straight A's. In addition to the movie work, it seems Ryan's got a new love too - he's been seen around town with 22-year-old model Paulina Slagter, who appeared once in an episode of Entourage. Ava and Deacon spent time with their dad in California recently while mom Reese Witherspoon was abroad promoting her movie This Means War. Reese went to Paris for a few days with friends, then headed to London for a UK premiere. She also found time while in England to visit The Arts Club with Gwyneth Paltrow, Cameron Diaz, and Stella McCartney. Reese is back in the Us now, though, and spent a good chuck of the weekend chatting up her action-comedy with costars Tom Hardy and Chris Pine.
