Sarah Jessica Parker
Sarah Jessica Parker hit Park City to promote her latest film, Smart People, but spent most of her time on the red carpet at the film's premiere fielding questions about news that Sex and the City co-star Chris Noth has become a father. "I'm thrilled for him because I think, first of all, he's going to make a wonderful, wonderful father," Parker told Entertainment Tonight. "He found a lovely lady to have a child with. It's the perfect time for him and I think he's very ready."
Matthew Broderick and Sarah Jessica Parker
After watching wife Sarah Jessica Parker at the screening of Smart People, it was time for Matthew Broderick to get to work promoting his own Sundance offering, Diminished Capacity. "We didn't bring [our son] James with us because we knew we would both be working," said Broderick, who nevertheless found the time to kick back before hitting the Sundance circuit. "All I did this afternoon was watch people skiing-some of them were good, some of them were not so good!" the actor admitted.
Matthew Perry and Lauren Graham
"Sundance has been great so far. I watched football all day and now I'm here," said Matthew Perry, who joined Lauren Graham for the premiere of Birds of America before hitting the after-party for Diminished Capacity. The actor's long day must have made him a little giddy; as he headed out the door, Perry shouted, "I'm in show business!"

Maria Bello graced the red carpet at the Eccles theater for the premiere of The Yellow Handkerchief, just one of three films she's headlining at Sundance.

Mary Lynn Rajskub and Emily Blunt
"I can't feel my feet!" said Emily Blunt at the premiere of Sunshine Cleaning. The busy Brit-who was disappointed that she didn't have time to ski during her visit-offered up some advice for festival-goers. "Dress warm and don't forget to wear your socks," said the actress, who layered a Rebecca Taylor coat over her Madame Paris dress. What was at the top of co-star Mary Lynn Rajskub's winter-wear wish list? "I want a snowsuit designed by Chanel," Rajskub said.
Larry Mullen Jr., Bono and The Edge
Bono traded his trademark shades for a pair of 3-D glasses when he and Adam Clayton (not pictured), Larry Mullen Jr. and The Edge took their seats for a screening of their concert film, U2 3D at the Eccles theater. "We understand that we're guests and this is not our milieu," said Bono as he introduced the film, drawing laughs from the audience. Afterwards, the music legends welcomed Al Gore, Woody Harrelson and will.i.am to the Bon Appetit Supper Club for a post-screening meal of Crab ravigote, Louisiana sugarcane-lacquered duckling, and New Orleans bread pudding.
Bruce Willis and Emma Heming
Some Hollywood heavyweights rolled into town for the Saturday night screening of What Just Happened? at the Eccles theater.

Tom and Colin Hanks
Father-son team Tom and Colin Hanks hyped their movie, The Great Buck Howard, when the film premiered at Pierpont Place in Salt Lake City. How would Tom-who produced the flick-rate Colin's big screen performance? "What am I going to do, come here and insult my kid?" the elder Hanks joked. "I'm very proud of the young man. He's a good guy."
Diego Luna and Sandra Oh
Sundance jury members Diego Luna and Sandra Oh unleashed their inner film critics when they spoke to the press at a jurors' press conference at Sundance House. "We want to promote the best film possible," said Oh of the jury's objectives. The Grey's Anatomy actress also took a stand on the effects the current writer's strike will have on her hit show. "The longer we're out, the less chance we have of completing the season," she warned.
Chris Pine and Eliza Dushku
Chris Pine beamed in from the set of Star Trek to join Eliza Dushku, Alan Rickman and Freddie Highmore for a screening of Bottle Shock at the Library theater. After the credits rolled, the cast headed to the Bon Appetit Supper club to toast the film.
Olivia Wilde and Megalyn Echikunwoke
While Fix star Olivia Wilde was supposed to ride into Sundance in a tricked out trailer, the wheels came off her plan somewhere between Los Angeles and Park City. "We had painted it silver and decorated it with the logo for the film. We were going to drive it down Main Street," said Wilde. "But the brakes caught fire!" Fortunately, losing their mode of transport didn't keep the actress, her husband, director Tao Ruspoli (not pictured) and her co-star, Megalyn Echikunwoke from hitting the film's premiere at the annual Slamdance celebration.
Patricia Clarkson and Stanley Tucci
Patricia Clarkson wore a proper topper to fight off the chill at the premiere of Blind Date at the Holiday Village Cinema. Clarkson was joined by her co-star-who also wore the director's hat on the film-Stanley Tucci, who braved the elements hatless.
Geoffrey Gilmore, Martin McDonagh and Robert Redford
"It's exciting," said Sundance founder Robert Redford (right), who joined festival director Geoffrey Gilmore and In Bruges director Martin McDonagh for the opening day press conference at the Egyptian Theatre. Redford's spirit of independence has even been passed down to daughter Amy, who will debut her first film this week. "I'm here as a dad, in support of her as a dad, and I'm happy to say she's here on her drive," the proud papa beamed.
