Every day a multitude of stars wander through the halls of MTV News to talk about their latest projects and goof around with staff members. But sometimes we catch stars elsewhere, and that's why we put together Spotted!, a daily compendium of stars in the wild.
Excuse us while we put on our busybody bottoms for a minute, but have you seen the latest snaps of "Mortal Instruments" leads Jamie Campbell Bower and Lily Collins? The co-stars are in Toronto prepping to film the big-screen adaptation of Cassandra Clare's best-selling novel, and, well, here they are holding hands. And it pretty clearly has nothing to do with the movie (in which they play love interests Clary Fray and Jace Wayland).
Cassie told us last year that the two had "incredible chemistry that sort of blazed off the screen" during their film test, so perhaps a big of this on-screen heat has seared into their personal lives? I mean, Jamie is now a single man after parting ways with fiancee Bonnie Wright, and this wouldn't be the first workplace romance for Lily, who dated "Abduction" co-star Taylor Lautner. Of course, this could just be a friendly sign of affection, but we don't make it a habit of holding our best bro's hand while running errands. Just sayin'.
We were so busy gossiping about TomKat that another celebrity split flew right under our radar: The Daily Mail reported over the weekend that "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2" co-stars Jamie Campbell Bower and Bonnie Wright have ended their engagement.
The two met on the set of the magical series in 2009 and confirmed their couple status in February of 2010. Betrothal rumors followed soon after, with Jamie revealing in March of 2011 that he had indeed put an engagement ring on it.
Tobey Maguire, I'm really happy for you and Imma let you finish, but Andrew Garfield is the most romantic Spider-Man of all time!
Seriously, no disrespect to the old guard, but there's no doubt about it: "The Amazing Spider-Man" is the most romantic Spidey movie of them all, if not the most romantic superhero movie period. If you're a sucker for a good love story, trust me, go see "Amazing." It more than lives up to the title.

While there's no shortage of on-screen pairs that spark post-project relationships, some just tend to melt our hearts a little more than others.
A couple of years ago, we asked if Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth were the new Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling, as both adorable relationships shared some striking similarities. But Hollywood is always about the next best thing, and with The Amazing Spider-Man swinging into theaters tomorrow, we can't help but think about where on-screen-turned-off-screen super duo Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield fit among the pretty-young-thing pairings.
Who's that girl on the cover of Cosmopolitan magazine? It's Ashley Greene! The actress who captured our attention (and inspired many a brand-new haircut) with her turn as the chic psychic sister to Edward Cullen is sporting her natural long locks, some trendy pink denim and a floral crop-top as the magazine's August cover girl. And inside, Ashley opens up about personal priorities, professional ambitions and her next move now that "The Twilight Saga" is just about dunzo.
And in case you've been wondering, that move will not be in the direction of an altar—despite the fairly long-term romance between the actress and Broadway boyfriend Reeve Carney.
"I'm not one of those girls who sits at home thinking, 'By 25, I have to be married,'" Ashley explained. "Right now, I’m like, 'I’m 25, I need to book my next movie!'"
Little-known fun fact: "The Amazing Spider-Man" isn't just a triumph of action cinema, a special-effects laden visual wow-fest, a super-hero flick of epic proportions. It's also a very nifty handbook for the trials and tribulations of the New York City dating scene. Which is why, when MTV News' Josh Horowitz sat down for an After Hours chat with Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone, he got all the dirty details from them on how to spide-ify your love life. Beginning, of course, with gaining entry to your crush's abode by lurking on the fire escape.
"I felt sexy doing that!" Andrew exclaimed. "I felt that was better than the front door."
And Emma, who's Andrew's girlfriend both on-screen and off, agreed; after growing up on classic Nickelodeon show "Clarissa Explains It All," she's a wholehearted proponent of the hi-I'm-at-your-window approach to friendship pioneered by Clarissa's friend Sam.
Another Hollywood couple is calling it quits.
People reports that Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, who have been married for five years and have one daughter together—six-year-old Suri—are getting a divorce.
"This is a personal and private matter for Katie and her family," Katie's attorney, Jonathan Wolfe, told the magazine. "Katie's primary concern remains, as it always has been, her daughter's best interest."
Much like "Awkward" leading lady, Jenna, we too have a hard time picking between Matty and Jake. Both guys are super attractive and bring their own je ne sais quoi to the table, which keeps us tuning into the hilarious MTV comedy week after week. So, in honor of the antics set to go down in season two—many of which are Matty and Jake related—we are naming Beau Mirchoff and Brett Davern this week’s Hump Day Hotties.
Check out this dreamy video of Beau and Brett talking pick-up lines, and keep reading for more details about them!
Vital stats: Well, Beau was born in Seattle but grew up in Canada. He went into acting at the urging of his sister. Meanwhile, Brett is a fellow Washington native who studied acting at Stagedoor Manor Performing Arts Training Center and the American Musical and Dramatic Academy.
And in case you’re wondering if they have any game when it comes to picking up ladies, you might want to check out their hysterical, albeit not-all-that-convincing pick-up lines they used when they stopped by the MTV Newsroom ahead recently. It was, um, awkward.
Forget the L.A. club scene or New York City streets; on Saturday night, the best place to spot young Hollywood's finest was Englewood, New Jersey! A roll call of A-list celebs—including Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Andrew Garfield and Zac Efron—all made their way to the Garden State this weekend as guests at the wedding of Hollywood producer Kevin Turen and actress Evelina Oboza. (In other words, don't go road-tripping out to the Jerz in the hopes of doing some star-spotting; this was a one-time deal.)
According to the report from People, all stars in attendance kept it classy and stayed off the radar, leaving the spotlight to the bride and groom (although Robert was spotted taking a turn as DJ, and Zac hit the dance floor when it came time to hora!).
If there was any doubt whether singer-actress Miley Cyrus was relishing her status as an affianced woman, the starlet made it known today via Twitter just how much she's looking forward to becoming Mrs. Liam Hemsworth.
As you'll recall, the news of the stars' engagement broke earlier this month, and let's just say that Miley's jaw-dropping diamond dominated the conversation around these parts for days.
