Let’s start the day with some class…and we’ll get progressively dirtier, OK?
It doesn’t get classier than Alan Rickman, my darling, at the Giffoni Film Festival yesterday. Rickman directed a film called A Little Chaos, selected this week as the closing night film at TIFF2014. He stars alongside Kate Winslet and Stanley Tucci. Come on. With a cast like that, you don’t need to know the story.
I’m blinding you again today. And we’re going to roll our eyes at Blake Lively. And the Fifty Shades Of Grey trailer will be released. And Leonardo DiCaprio and Robin Thicke were in the same room at the same time. So, yeah, we’ve come down already from our Alan Rickman high.
Yours in gossip,
There’s no doubt: Fifty Shades Of Grey, the movie, will be better than the book. How much better? Well, it depends on how far away Sam Taylor-Johnson was able to get from the author, EL James. James reportedly wanted total creative control…so if she put in all that sh-t about the inner goddess, it’s going to seriously kill my erection. Full Story
He’s had his problems over the last year. He’s found himself in some sh-tty situations because of it. Why the darkness? It was stress. The stress of feeling that he can’t come out publicly. Lately though…there’s been a turnaround. Career is in good shape. And there’s someone new in his life. Full Story
The Daily Mail, that paragon of accuracy, is reporting that Justin Bieber will soon be a Calvin Klein underwear model. Well, he’s worked hard enough for it. Supposedly the brand has signed JB to front their next campaign. The photo shoot, according to the Daily Mail, has already happened.
Calvin Klein juuuuust featured Charlie Hunnam in a fragrance ad for Reveal.
I know fragrance and underwear are different business streams but under one label, how did we get from Charlie Hunnam to Justin Bieber?

Robert Pattinson and Zac Efron went bowling together last night in LA, exactly the kind of wholesome activity both are known to spend their time on. OK. There was a time when Zac was said to be jealous of Robert for all the attention he was getting, or taking. Zac used to be The One. High School Musical. Full Story

It has recently come to my attention that there are some people for whom “Irish”, the mention of, or indeed the claiming as heritage of, is unappealing. Something about being too rah-rah or that we’re the greatest or something. Oops. Did I slip? Yep. I’m one of the few and the proud. Full Story

Leonardo DiCaprio is in Saint Tropez. Likely some rich dude’s boat. He apparently hosted a fundraiser last night. I guess the strategy is to invite a lot of models, and some wealthy men, generosity ensues, and everyone can go home feeling good about themselves. He really must have a bat signal for them, models I mean. Full Story

Selena Gomez celebrated her champagne birthday yesterday in Saint Tropez. She went out on the jet ski with a cute guy. A tall, cute guy. Don’t you think JB wishes he was taller? He totally does. It’s probably the only thing he can’t buy. As you know, S would have known that the paps are shooting her. Full Story
One of the movies that caught my eye at this year’s Sundance was Dear White People, a satire of race politics centered around an African-American themed party thrown by white kids on a college campus and the hell that breaks loose afterward. It was a hit at Sundance, winning a Special Jury Prize and netting writer/director Justin Simien a Breakthrough Talent award. Full Story
She’s great at giving big smiles, pretending her personality is as sweet as her voice. It depends. If she’s talking to Ellen DeGeneres, well, of course she’s lovely and accommodating. But what if it’s a child in a wheelchair? There was a kid who had a wish. The wish was to meet her favourite star. Full Story
