Stars Travel around the Globe for Holiday Weekend
December 22, 2005

Jessica Simpson is celebrating her first Christmas without Nick Lachey, Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones have a ski weekend planned and the Travoltas are off on a secret getaway. "Extra" has all your favorite stars and their plans for the holidays.

Simpson was seen shopping with her sister Ashlee and their mom at one of Los Angeles’ most expensive clothing stores. Ashlee was looking good after collapsing just last week in Japan, but Jessica was far from her bubbly self. Word is she'll soon head to Hawaii.

On the other side of town, Jessica’s ex, Nick Lachey, was shopping at another trendy store.

Other stars will be vacationing over the holidays. One of the most popular destinations is Aspen, Colorado. "Extra" spotted Heidi Klum and Seal in their Aspen ski gear as well as Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas.

Jack Nicholson also had Colorado on his mind, and Mariah Carrey was seen walking around Aspen in her furry pink boots.

Lori Burgess of Aspen Peak magazine tells us Hollywood and Aspen are a perfect fit. "Celebs go there because they love Aspen," she said. "I mean, the feeling and the atmosphere and the ambience and the international flavor of Aspen is so special."

The Travolta clan is also heading to the cold, but as Kelly Preston told us, they will be far away from the Hollywood scene. "We always spend Christmas up at our house in Maine," she said. "I’m hoping for snow."

Of course, some stars live for the sunshine. Academy Award winner Jamie Foxx told us, "I’m taking my family to Miami, my whole family. Enjoy a few days down there frolicking, sand and sun."

So whether it's skiing or sunbathing, Hollywood’s hottest stars are enjoying the holiday season all over the planet.
