William Levy made everyone laugh with his pranks and funny faces while taping a promo video for the soap opera Cuidado con el ángel in Mexico City. The Cuban actor -who got his first leading role in this Mexican production- has charm to spare!

Gloria Trevi wore this eccentric -and somewhat disturbing- outfit to a presentation of new upholstery trends for Sear’s furniture department. She was a special guest at the event, held in the Mexican capital. What’s up with her funky clothes?
INDIANA JONES FAN
It seems like Jessica Alba is a big Indiana Jones fan! We spotted the actress wearing this outfit that reminded us of the treasure-hunting heroe while she shopped for maternity clothes at Miu Miu in Beverly Hills, CA. Maybe the actress -who will give birth any minute now- will have better luck with the clothes she finds at this store!
TV hostess Rebeca de Alba (left) and singer Paty Manterola showed their passion for wrestling and comitment to helping kids. The Mexican beauties attended the fundraising event Kilómetro de Lucha, held in Mexico City’s Zocalo Plaza, to benefit children with cancer.
EVA'S NEW ADDICTION
Eva Mendes has a new addiction: energy drinks. The actress, of Cuban descent, was spotted at a gas station in Los Feliz, CA, downing a can of Red Bull. One wasn’t enough. When she was done, the Hitch star went back to the store to get another one!
