I interviewed Josh Brolin for Gangster Squad a couple of years ago. Half our interview was about Ryan Gosling’s balls…which wasn’t actually what I was asking. All I did was throw Josh a question about Ryan, what's he like to work with, their chemistry, etc. And then he started talking about Ryan’s balls and how they’re like a “vineyard”. Full Story

Mimi and James Packer walked their first red carpet together yesterday in New York at the premiere of The Intern. As you can tell, red carpets aren’t his thing. But for her, that’s a bonus. Because when Mimi’s working a carpet, there shouldn’t be anyone else trying to work it away from her. Full Story

“The only thing that separates women of colour from anyone else is opportunity.” Go ahead. Let the line sink in. In fact, go even further and allow yourself to acknowledge that if you saw those words being spoken, you were a part of a moment.  “You cannot win an Emmy for roles that are simply not there. Full Story

It’s the Friday before Labour Day long weekend. It’s also Beyonce’s birthday. While she’s remained silent, because why should she put out the energy today?, people from around the world are gathering to praise and worship. #BeyDay is now trending high worldwide on Twitter. Even FLOTUS took to Twitter to wish Beyonce a happy birthday: Happy birthday to the one and only, Queen 🐝! Thank you for being a role model for young girls around the world, @Beyonce Full Story

I posted photos of Woody, Tom Hardy’s dog, being a total boss on the carpet in London yesterday at the premiere of Legend. Woody didn’t want to go home after the movie. Woody took a disco nap in the afternoon and made sure he was ready to go to the afterparty. So here he is, arriving at the afterparty, with Tom opening the door to let him out. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

I’m never the kind of person who starts playing holiday music before Halloween but after yesterday, you know what we kinda need? We need some Christmas. You know who owns Christmas? Come on. It’s Mimi.  Read Full Intro

Tom Hardy Dubsmash

I’ve just come back from a really intense film. Excellent but intense. And Marcus, our original beagle, just came back from the oncologist. So, yeah, we need some fun up in here. We need some light. Tom Hardy movies aren’t usually on the light side. This Means War comes to mind but he regrets that career decision and I regret watching it. Full Story

Would you hang out with Quentin Tarantino? Over a 4 hour dinner? I would. I would LOVE TO. Because, really, he has no filter. Sometimes he’s right. Sometimes he’s very, very wrong. (Like the entire Aaron Sorkin section.) Sometimes he’s sucking himself off. But he’s always talking. Full Story

Monroe Carey Cannon, 4, got her ears pierced. Another conversation that always becomes a fight – how old should kids be when this happens. My ma had my ears pierced when I was 10 months old. I’ve never resented her for it. This is all I have to say on the topic before the yelling begins. Full Story

There’s nothing more clichéd to me than “PREACH!”. And yet, reading Mindy Kaling’s excerpt from her upcoming book in Glamour, about how to achieve confidence, there’s no other word for it. Let’s cut to the chase here: “Confidence is just entitlement…entitlement is simply the belief that you deserve something. Full Story

Dembabies on the Walk of Fame

Mimi received her star on the Walk of Fame in Hollywood yesterday. And it was supposed to be all about her. It should always be all about her. But… Not when dembabies are around. Which totally makes sense. Dembabies have been raised by a sparkle butterfly who was destined to be praised and admired – and told that she’s skinny – at all times. Full Story

Tom, Gisele, and Bridget email each other

Tom Brady’s emails are being analysed because of #deflategate. I feel like this might be like a mini version of the Sony hack in that fascinating details will be reported day by day, as reporters go through the documents. Or, maybe, it’ll just be today. Anyway, if you’re a Vancouver Canucks fan, the most interesting emails might be the ones exchanged between Tom and Canucks owner Francesco Aquilini. Full Story

Tom Cruise is currently promoting Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation. The reviews so far are good, really good – 94% at post time on Rotten Tomatoes. I saw it on Saturday. And, yeah, I agree. First of all, you don’t go into Mission Impossible expecting Birdman. Full Story
