There are few things that get our bells ringing quite like celebrating the season with friends, and that’s just what “High School Musical” co-stars Vanessa Hudgens and Ashley Tisdale did. Ashley took to Instagram to share a pic of the Disney duo decking the halls on Christmas Eve. “Santa’s Lil helpers. Decorating with @vanessahudgens and Austin #christmas #besties,” she wrote. We’re guessing there weren’t many Troy Bolton ornaments to be found…
While Vanessa and Ashley were giving good face, a handful of young stars were giving their time to the annual Los Angeles Mission’s Christmas Eve for the Homeless. Among the volunteers serving up dinner for the needy were Bella Thorne, Booboo Stewart and sister Fivel. Santa would be so proud.
Meanwhile, John’s ex Jessica Simpson confirmed that her little round belly isn’t a bowl full of jelly but a burgeoning baby bump! For the second time, the starlet announced her pregnancy news via a holiday-themed tweet, with an image of daughter Maxwell accompanied by the phrase “Big Sis” scrawled in the sand below. What a cute Christmas present indeed!
And, proving that stars really are JUST LIKE US, many flocked to the theaters to watch their colleagues sing and dance on screen (helping a certain movie musical clench the No. 1 spot at the box office).
“Just saw Les Mis.. is was amazing!! As a member of the Les Mis family I thought they did an amazing job and truly honored the show:),” Lea Michele wrote.
And, hinting that she too spent a few hours in a dark cinema, “Girls” star Lena Dunham tweeted, “David O. Russell, such a stylish filmmaker. Jennifer Lawrence’s face/ass haunt me in the most positive way. I loved Silver Linings Playbook.”
