Lainey:Many of you have written to ask about Laura's perspective on the terrace at the du Cap the other night. When she tried not to eyef-ck Robert Pattinson too obviously. Others have emailed to say you'd prefer Laura's account because mine lacked enthusiasm. And a few twi-hards hated on me for not taking his picture. Full Story

Desperate Ebola in Cannes

The Croisette has been contaminated this week by Ebola Paris Hilton and that loser it’s been dragging around as its boyfriend. We’ve managed to avoid infection thus far, have not run into them at any parties. Fingers crossed. Should probably stay away from VIP Room tonight though. It’s Christian Audigier’s birthday celebration for starters, and on top of all the euro Ed Hardy wearing douchebags, adding that f-cking virus to the scene is bound to result in major disease. Full Story

She looked incredible at the photo call in the morning. Amazing. The hair! Will be copying the hair. Last night on the carpet – meh on the dress. Guess why? It’s Marchesa! And Inglourious Basterds has Harvey Weinstein all over it. Anyway, Diane’s profile has been pretty low key this week. Full Story

Annual on the terrace 2

From dinner it’s a long beautiful, palm tree-lined walkway up to the terrace bar for drinks looking out over the gardens. A stunning view. When it’s go go go for several days straight on the crowded Croisette, it’s not a bad idea to get away from the frenzy. The Croisette is a one massive clusterf-ck. Full Story

It’s the fourth year for us at Cannes. And every year we have at least one night at the du Cap. On a night when it’s best to get away from the Croisette, when we don’t have any evening assignments, we make our pilgrimage. There is no Dylan this time though. We miss Dylan. In 2007 Dylan stood next to George Clooney and called him wee. Full Story

Pitt Porn for Basterds

It’s the third year in a row. And there’s something about Cannes that brings out the best in the Brange. The heat and humidity, the moistness in the air, all of it gets magnified tenfold between them and they take their hot and horny chemistry onto the carpet and the whole world is left quivering. Full Story

Tonight they’ll do it full on carpet style. But last night a little more private. Radaronline has just secured these photos of the Brange kissing last night. Full Story

Once upon a time, Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe presented together at the Oscars. He told her to open the envelope because she made more money. Many raised eyebrows. I took it as a joke. But as her star began to climb, as she became one of the highest paid, most popular actresses in Hollywood, so his sulky carby face began to make more and more appearances. Full Story

A fried rice day indeed. The press screening was at 8:30am. Here’s how it works: thousands of journalists are accredited every year for the Cannes Film Festival. We’re able to view films at scheduled press screening times but only on a first come first serve basis colour coded by badge. For the more popular films, queuing early is critical, even if your badge is one of the higher levels. Full Story

Very rare! Squee! Last night at the Chopard event, Marion Cotillard and Guillaume Canet walked together, and held hands. Love them so much. So f-cking beautiful. This afternoon we were on our way to a meeting, he and 2 associates walked right by us, no security, no fanfare, totally unusual for Cannes, so I tripped. Full Story

Antichrist

I commented on Twitter yesterday that it feels like Willem Dafoe has to be naked in every one of his movies. Obviously an exaggeration. But he’s naked a lot. He’s also a sexy beast. And, yes, he’s very very naked in his new movie Antichrist which screened at Cannes yesterday and is by far the most controversial film of the festival so far. Full Story

What's Cannes like? How deep is the Eurocheese? What does it look like? What does it smell like? Sometimes words are inadequate. And if you've never come here, this just about sums it up. Roberto Cavalli. Enjoy the amazingness. Photos from Flynetonline.com Full Story

She’s not beige

Elizabeth Banks. See I thought she was a beige person. Not particularly exciting. But Cannes, Cannes brings out the real drama. And often the real bitch. So no, she’s definitely not beige. She just might be the next Sharon Stone. At the Grey Goose event on Saturday night… Have to describe the setting: So it’s a chateau. Full Story

Christmas in Cannes

They say there’s a recession but you wouldn’t know it here in Cannes. They say the studios have scaled back a fair bit. It’s my fourth year, so far it doesn’t seem so different, but then again, I’m not wheeling and dealing in backrooms. Whatever’s happened on the hustle however doesn’t seem have made a difference on the Croisette. Full Story
