Swing­ing time on a day out for Si­mon and son

Daily Express - - NEWS - By Liz Perkins

MU­SIC mogul Si­mon Cow­ell made some hot news as he got in the swing of chili fes­ti­val cel­e­bra­tions with his son Eric.

The fun-lov­ing en­ter­tain­ment im­pre­sario, 59, hid be­hind shades and sported a black T-shirt and blue jeans at the Mal­ibu Chili Cook-Off.

Eric, five, beamed as he en­joyed a swing ride and his mother, Si­mon’s part­ner Lau­ren Sil­ver­man, 42, also looked to be en­joy­ing the fes­ti­val.

Si­mon was among celebri­ties who soaked up Satur­day’s fun and sun. Fa­mous faces in­cluded ac­tresses Halle Berry, 53, and Min­nie Driver, 49, and Arnold Sch­warzeneg­ger’s son Joseph Baena.

Ac­tress Reese Wither­spoon was also there with her fam­ily, hus­band Jim Toth, their son Ten­nessee, six, and Dea­con, Reese’s 15-year-old son with her first hus­band, Ryan Phillippe.

Hol­ly­wood ac­tor Jamie Foxx, 51, was also spot­ted at the cook-off with ac­tors Mel Gib­son, 63, and Jared Leto, 47.

Rides, live mu­sic, food, drinks and chili are at the heart of the an­nual fes­ti­val, which fin­ishes to­day and aims to of­fer a unique ar­ti­san ex­pe­ri­ence.

The four-day event of­fers the chance to tuck in to a range of spicy culi­nary de­lights and en­joy the en­ter­tain­ment on of­fer.

It is one of the long­est tra­di­tions in Mal­ibu and al­lows cooks and chefs, from be­gin­ner to pro­fes­sional, to show off their skills, com­pet­ing to make the best chili in town.

Money was raised for The Boys & Girls Club of Mal­ibu as well as youth-based or­gan­i­sa­tions in the Cal­i­for­nia beach­side re­sort.
