Dear Gossips,

Last week I used Miley Cyrus as an excuse to talk about Brandon Flowers. Have I mentioned that I’m obsessed with Brandon Flowers? Anyway, in that post (click here for a refresher), I gossip-wished Brandon covering Don’t Get Me Wrong for Miley’s next Backyard Session. Well, he performed in London last night. And he covered Don’t Get Me Wrong. But instead of Miley, He.Sang.It.With.Chrissie.Hynde.

Um…

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have to restrain myself from watching this too many times because he is so f-cking hot in this video, I might not be able to work. Oh and he also performed it on BBC Radio 2 live at Maida Vale studios. It’s the second embedded video below, start at 19:44. God. He sounds gorgeous.

Anyway, like I said, I have to work. So I have to ignore my Google alerts. But this photo attached first is from his new interview about The Desired Effect with the LA Times – click here to read it. Or, you know, just stare at his face. Which you can also do while watching the new lyric video for I Can Change that was just released yesterday. That’s the third video embedded.

OK. I’m trying. I’m trying to work. Heading back to Toronto today so I’ve worked overnight to prepare most of today’s articles and they’ll be rolled out through the morning. The flight is supposed to have wifi so, hopefully if it’s running, I’ll write the rest from the air.

Have a great weekend!

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

Marion, Michael, and Alicia

Marion Cotillard and Michael Fassbender looked like they were having a great time together last night at the amfAR gala in Cannes ahead of the premiere of Macbeth at the festival, one of the most highly anticipated films in competition. Two new clips have just been released showing Fassbender’s Macbeth at his coronation, looking well on his way to derangement, and then later in battle with some curious directing decisions, at least to me. Full Story

As part of his cover feature in June’s GQ, Chris Pratt filmed a little comedy segment for the internet in which he gives acting lessons, except he got hammered and started the bit by saying he’s too drunk to do the bit. He then proceeds to do the bit while being obviously three sheets to the wind. Full Story

Gwyneth gets stuck

If you hate Gwyneth Paltrow, and so many of you do (which I’ll never understand because what would gossip be with only Kate Middletons and no Gwyneth Paltrows?), this is your birthday. G appeared last night on the Red Nose Day special on NBC. She was supposed to be like some kind of action hero, jumping down from a helicopter, rolling onto the roof, and arriving on stage on a wire, strapped into a harness…. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Buzzfeed posted a photo on Twitter yesterday that made me hug myself. The Khaleesi and Neville Longbottom!

 

 

It came from Matthew Lewis’s Instagram. They’re working together on Me Before You which, presumably, is the film adaptation of Jojo Moyes’s novel of the same name. I wrote about Me Before You in January 2013; after two more readings since then I still can’t decide how I feel about it. But as a movie, it has the potential to become what Nicholas Sparks books-to-movies used to be. You remember how you left the theatre ugly-sobbing after The Notebook? This is what will happen when Me Before You comes out.

By the way, Neville is not playing the male lead. He is, however, showing you his abs and his junk on the cover of Attitude Magazine. I don’t like my Neville when he’s trying to be Justin Bieber and/or Scott Eastwood.

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

Holy sh-t it's been one drama after another for Johnny Depp in Australia. And it's not like Australia is unwelcoming of celebrities. As Nicole pointed out in an email to me this morning, when Brange was there last year for Unbroken, they were beloved by the Aussie public. That said, they weren't constantly threatening to bail or compromising the country's quarantine. Full Story

More photos from the Atlanta set of Captain America: Civil War, including Scarlett Johansson sporting what I think is Black Widow’s best-ever wig, and Paul Rudd reporting to set. Rudd will make his debut as Ant-Man in a couple months, but he’s already moving up the ranks to full-blown Avenger for Civil War. Full Story

Oh hey. I haven't posted any shots of Leonardo DiCaprio on a boat in Cannes yet. So. Here. How many billionaires offered him the opportunity? And how do you choose which one to accept? Is it possible that he's renting it on his own? Why spend his own money when there's an obscenely wealthy starf-cker willing to take care of the expenses? People were all impressed earlier this week when Leo bid $20k for a bag for his ma at a charity event. Full Story

In the latest installment of James Corden’s Carpool Karaoke, Justin Bieber comes along for the ride. No, nothing will ever be better than Mimi glittering all over James’s vehicle as he plays hit after hit – HER  hits, obviously – but this interview format, side by side, with music, driving around Los Angeles, is really effective. Full Story

This week the internet was scandalized when an Australian tabloid ran a story asserting that Rebel Wilson has been lying about her age and background since breaking out in Bridesmaids. Wilson’s age of record was 29, and she had at various points claimed to grow up in the “ghetto” with “bogan” (working class) parents. Full Story
