Stars slime their inner child

Thesps play around at Kids Choice Awards

HOLLYWOOD — There’s something magical and, er, childlike, when celebs try to interact with the younger set. It’s just so darn cute but, more important for the studios, a cheap way for A-listers to promote their pics to the under-18 crowd. Such was the case Saturday night at the Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards, an event that gives a say to everyone from anklebiters to teens.

“Shrek 2” thesps Mike Myers and Cameron Diaz served as emcees, with Hugh Jackman (“Van Helsing”), Jim Carrey (“Lemony Snicket”) and Jennifer Garner (“13 Going on 30”) engaging in the tomfoolery at Pauley Pavilion.
