Old movie actors never really die, they just keep … cashing paycheques. Case in point: Ex-movie palooka Sylvester Stallone (67) and once-respectable thespian Robert De Niro (70) go into a clinch while promoting their new movie ‘Grudge Match’ in New York. Yo, Adrian! You talkin’ to me?

Also in ‘Grudge Match’ is Kim Basinger (60), who inexplicably showed up at the Big Apple premiere attired as the creepy emcee from ‘Cabaret.’

Cut to Los Angeles, where Julia Roberts (46) and Meryl Streep (64) were acting all sisterly in support of their new film ‘August: Osage County,’ in which they play mother and daughter.

‘Tee-hee,’ says Meryl. ‘Can you believe we still get paid millions of dollars to play these roles we could do in our sleep?’

Also in ‘August: Osage County’ is Juliette Lewis, now 40 but still making with the crazy eyes she displayed in ‘National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation.’

And here we have the fine Scottish actor Ewan McGregor, who has a major role in ‘Osage County’ and possesses the uncanny ability to keep his face in a fixed and frozen position. Okay, remember that pose ...

You see? Same blank expression while posing with his co-star Abigail Breslin.

And exact same face again while he’s hanging with ‘Breaking Bad’ star Bryan Cranston …

And still with the sourpuss, even in the presence of the famously amusing Margo Martindale.

Meanwhile, in St. John’s, former ‘Baywatch’ mainstay Pamela Anderson (46) showed up unexpectedly in hopes of convincing members of the sealing industry to call off the annual seal hunt. Pammie, you wore the wrong outfit

Along with TV producer Sam Simon, Pam carried her giant novelty cheque all the way to the offices of the Canadian Sealers Association but was dismayed to discover their offices were closed.

Pam kept knocking and knocking on the door, oblivious to the peals of laughter from the staffers hiding therein.

All that door-knocking eventually wore Pam out, so she gave up and slipped a note under the door. She learned that trick from dating Kid Rock.

Shift to New York, where the arrival of Leonardo DiCaprio to the premiere of ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’ caused alarm bells to start ringing in modelling agencies all over Manhattan. Look out, ladies, Leo’s in town!

Also at the ‘Wolf of Wall Street’ premiere was the real-life Jordan Belfort, the financier-felon whom DiCaprio plays in the movie. Sadly, his wife Nadine didn’t hear the alarms.

And then there was Jon Favreau, shown here shielding his underarm perspiration stains from the paparazzi. Dude, that’s so not money.

Fortuitously, the press corps were more interested in Aussie actress Margot Robbie, who plays Leo’s love interest in ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’ even though she’s 23 and he’s 39. As they used to say, the camera loves her.

And here’s Jonah Hill, already generating Oscar buzz for his role in ‘The Wolf of Wall Street.’ From this picture, it’s difficult to guess what Jonah might be in love with …

From this picture, it’s pretty obvious.

And here’s the real winner of the past week: Oscar-winning director Martin Scorsese, still making movies at 71 and hopefully oblivious to the recent career moves of Robert De Niro. Buon Natale, Marty!
