Is there a thawing out between Sienna Miller and Jude Law? Though she hasn’t been seen wearing her engagement ring, Miller has been out-and-about in London with her estranged fiancé.
The couple visited trendy Lebanese eatery Maroush in the city’s Knightsbridge neighborhood recently. Law arrived first, followed by Miller a half-hour later. There was no PDA, but an onlooker reported that they seemed to be involved in a serious discussion.
Two days later, the pair visited Pugs & Kisses, on posh New King’s Road. The store sells gourmet pet food, designer dog and cat clothes and other accessories, and its soon-to-be-opened spa will offer facials, exfoliating treatments and pedicures – for the dogs, of course. Law and Miller – who have two pooches, Porgy & Bess – were very low-key as they browsed for collars but didn’t buy anything.
“There was no touching,” a source says. “There was some laughing. They seemed happy enough.” Stay tuned …
Touch of Evil
If you’re used to seeing Wilmer Valderrama play goofy and lovable Fez on That ’70s Show, you’re about to see a much different side of the actor. Valderrama will play a “psychotic, kind of crazy guy who talks to birds” in an upcoming video for Rob Thomas’s song “Ever the Same” (from his platinum-selling album Something to Be), the Grammy-winning singer told us at the recent Fashion Rocks event in New York City.
So, how did the pairing come about? “It was my wife’s idea,” says Thomas. “We met him and became friends with him and he’s one of the nicest guys. He has such an interesting face. Mari was like, ‘Maybe instead of being something funny and silly wouldn’t it be cool if he was dark and spooky and scary.’ He was too.” The video will hit the small screen sometime in the next few months.

The following night, Piven and a group of 20 friends – including Access Hollywood host Billy Bush – commandeered the lounge’s VIP room. “He’s quite a character and loves to entertain,” says a Bella staffer.
