It’s Big G’s first birthday! His parents have urged the public to refrain from sending gifts, not only because that child has everything he could possible want, but also because that child only wants things he can crush. Like butterflies.
More images have been released from Big G’s visit to the butterfly exhibit, his parents gifting us with two more shots of the Bruiser Prince. As you can see, he’s fascinated by them, and at one point, reaches out to touch one on his father’s hand. That poor butterfly must have been like F-ck Me, how did I get chosen to hang out with the Gregor Clegane of the Windsor line?
And then there’s Blake Lively who launched Preserve late yesterday, reportedly two days ahead of schedule, clearly not intimidated by the royal milestone. I have some thoughts on Preserve from a gossip perspective. And Maria will be analysing it from the lifestyle business side with the experience she has as Managing Editor of Vitamin Daily.
It’s time for the Nerd Herd too. Comic-Con begins this week. Sarah’s preview will be post today.
Yours in gossip,
There’s been some buzz that Zoe Saldana is pregnant. If she is, she wore a dress to try and distract from it last night at the Guardians Of The Galaxy premiere. So, while you baby-obsessed are busy trying to figure out whether or not it’s a bump, I’ll be over here talking about her hair… As bobs go, this is not the best I’ve seen. Full Story

Chris Pratt and Anna Faris were on hand at the premiere of Guardians of the Galaxy last night to christen Pratt’s new career as a movie star. I’m not loving his suit. It’s boring, and the tie looks sloppy (needs pressing?), and his douche hair is too much. Chris Pratt is so cute! What is this look? Why is he fighting his hotness? Chris Evans is always fighting his hotness—I need one of the Chrises to just own his sh*t and show up looking great. Full Story

Now here’s someone who would never, ever trash-talk Leonardo DiCaprio. Or risk excommunication. Check out Bradley Cooper in a leather bomber at the Hollywood premiere of Guardians Of The Galaxy last night. As Sarah’s been saying, his Rocket Raccoon almost steals the movie. His voice performance in the role is said to be outstanding. Full Story

So…this appeared on Instagram last night: See, that’s the kind of gossip I’m talking about. Good Gossip. Not that we should believe what we read on Twitter and Instagram, of course not. It’s just… a kind of random story for a random person to make up. Full Story
In its first year, 5% of the profits from Preserve, Blake Lively’s new lifestyle site, will go towards Covenant House. It was already established in her VOGUE cover story that Ryan Reynolds’s fingerprints would be “all over” her new enterprise. Reynolds has supported Covenant House Vancouver in the past – click here Full Story
Erin! Happy Birthday with love from Phaedra! “Happy Belated 40th to Sara-sorry I'm such a slacker and haven't mailed your present yet. I prefer to look it as extending the celebration. I hope you enjoyed your weekend celebration in Victoria! Looking forward to many more years of solving the riddles and of course planning our trip to see Britney! Love you tons munchkin-Jodi” And for Melina because your Messi gone… Lucia tells me you’re heartbroken, and I can imagine. Full Story
How much do you think Universal paid Beyonce to be involved, somehow, in Fifty Shades Of Grey? When you work with Beyonce, it’s not just a song on the soundtrack either. It’s whatever Beyonce wants. If Beyonce wants to be the one to post a new teaser for the movie on Instagram, that’s what Beyonce gets. Worth it?
When Sarah from Cinesnark asked me about it yesterday, I told her that Fifty Shades Of Beyonce suddenly seems a lot more appealing to me. Beyonce + Sam Taylor-Johnson? Even better. Most of the time, a film is not better than the book. This time, the film will DEFINITELY be better than the book. Not that it would be hard, because you can’t get worse than that book and the “inner goddess” but it seems like Universal has the sense to spend money were it matters, complementing the property with the kind of ancillary support – in the form of Beysus, no less – that suggests that what we might be seeing in the movie is a lot more high quality than what we had to endure in the writing.

Rafael Nadal and girlfriend Xisca Perello were at a wedding this weekend in Spain. Cuuuuuute! I love him! I love them! Rafa is enjoying some down time before he prepares for the final slam of the season, the US Open. Mostly they care about the title, but he and Novak Djokovic are #2 and #1 on the tour and the tournament will likely also determine who’s on top to end 2014. Full Story
Taylor Swift has been living her New York life, hanging with her New York friends – among them Karlie Kloss, the model. As you know, things have been strained between Taylor and Selena Gomez, supposedly over Justin Bieber and also Selena’s behaviour and habits. And now Selena’s like, well I can be friends with a model, too! She was photographed today in Saint Tropez with Cara Delevingne. Full Story
In 2011 the Black List was topped by a script for a biopic of Alan Turing, the computer scientist who developed the early computer that the British used to break the German’s Enigma code. You might also recognize his name from the Turing Test, a series of questions meant to determine if a machine is capable of fooling a human interrogator into thinking it’s human. Full Story
