I like this word, “dashing”. I don’t use it very much. Few people earn it. But when they do earn it, DASHING is a great word. Sidney Poitier is dashing. Colin Firth is dashing. George Clooney is dashing. Look at him last night in New York promoting The Monuments Men. I prefer him in the open-neck shirt he wore to Letterman. Full Story

Whatever happened to predictability?

I fully expect Duana, and all you 80s/90s family TV watchers to know exactly what this is immediately. Danny Tanner, Uncle Jesse, and Uncle Joey were all in New York together today. I think it has something to do with a Super Bowl commercial? But that really doesn’t matter. What matters is that …wait… I was going to say that John Stamos makes everyone else look bad but Bob Saget and Dave Coulier (You Oughta Know) are actually holding up ok. Full Story

Remember when Jude Law got caught f-cking with his nanny Daisy while engaged to Sienna Miller? And then Sienna got back at him by f-cking Daniel Craig? Well we’re reliving it now because Jude testified at that never-ending phone hacking trial in London where it was revealed that Sienna and Daniel (who starred in Layer Cake together – their chemistry was HOT) were actually carrying on for a while and she’d call Daniel while was with Jude and leave him messages like, “I can’t talk. Full Story

I wrote about Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin at the Golden Globes yesterday – click here if you missed it. In short, she had a busy Globe weekend and also attended the same party as Winona Ryder, OMG. That party was Sean Penn’s Haiti fundraiser. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

It’s January 7. Since 2005, I’ve done this almost every year on January 7. You know, right? Of course you do. Nine years ago on January 7 I was getting ready for holiday. Late in the day, when everyone had packed it in for the weekend, they dropped their bomb. I remember it around 5pm PT. It was huge. You can’t exaggerate it. How can you exaggerate it when we’re STILL talking about it almost a decade later? Jacek understood that day that we had to modify our trip to account for the reporting that necessarily had to follow in the wake of such a major story.

For a while when she as with Brad Pitt, Jennifer Aniston used to wear these orange-red hiking pants that I loved and looked all over for. I never did find an exact match. Back then she was also really into thong bikinis. I remember seeing pap shots taken of them at their house, in 1998, the tabloids reporting that they’d moved in together.  Read Full Intro

Madonna’s publicist has confirmed to Gossip Cop that she and Brahim Zaibat, now 25, are over. They’ve not spent a lot of time together in the last few months. And she’s been spending more and more time with Sean Penn, most recently in Haiti when she joined him with her children for fundraising efforts. Full Story

Art Basel begins in Miami tomorrow. Aaaaaand guess who just happens to be in Miami? Leonardo DiCaprio was photographed there this week with his boys, getting ready for all the awesome art. Of course all the art. Only the art. It has nothing to do with the fact that Art Basel turns into a big party. Full Story

John & Katy like James and Carly?

John Mayer is releasing a new single called Who You Love, a duet with girlfriend Katy Perry. They posed together for their first official portraits as cover art for the track. More photos were then posted exclusively at Vanity Fair. Shot by Mario Sorrenti (you probably know him best for his work with Kate Moss), there’s a late 60s/early 70s vibe to the images, like here:  Full Story

Keith Urban cut his hair

But …just the back, right? From the front it’s pretty much exactly the same. It just looks like he wanted to lose the party in the back. Inspiration: Anne Hathaway Or…Tegan & Sara! For some reason this reminds of the time Tom Cruise dyed his hair blonde for Interview With The Vampire. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

You know what song’s been playing in my head for 12 hours?

It’s just a little crush
Not like I faint every time we touch

I blame Duana. She sent me a note last night after 9pm:

“Vulture is dissecting Fame in 1998. It’s your porn. Go there now.”

And I didn’t leave.

Remember Cameron Diaz and Matt Dillon? Remember when people went full Twi-Hard over Dawson Leery? Gwyneth was with Ben Affleck. Brad and Jennifer Aniston had just become a thing. Who can resist Gossip Nostalgia?

Click here to get started. But I’m warning you – only if you have the time. Because that sh-t is a black hole.

Yours in gossip,

What Winona Ryder character would you bring back? Which one are you curious about? Who would you want to catch up with? Is it Veronica in Heathers? Or Rina from Lucas? God, I loved Lucas. Charlie Sheen was super hot in Lucas. Whatever happened to Kerri Green? The answer to that question, if you’re Winona Ryder, is Lydia in Beetlejuice. Full Story

We all have our flavour of celebrity couple nostalgia: Johnny and Kate, Johnny and Winona, Brad and Gwyneth, JLo and Ben. One of my all-time favourites: Usher and Chilli. What? It’s the perfect combination of pop music, drama, and music videos. I have always loved TLC and judging by the longevity of their music, so do a lot of you. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Let’s start the day with some Gossip Nostalgia: when Johnny loved Kate. Paul McCartney has confirmed that Depp and Moss will both appear in the video for his new song Queenie Eye. Like…together.


Well now this is just an excuse to kill too much time staring at old photos of them back then, as they were. Their relationship began almost 20 years ago. God that’s a long time. How can it be such a long time?

It used to be that whenever Johnny Depp fell in love, it became an iconic romance: before Kate there was Winona, and after Kate there was Vanessa. And all three of those relationships had that… special “it”.  Read Full Intro

Gossip Nostalgia: Ben Affleck & Jennifer Garner in Vancouver

I miss you, Vancouver. It’s Thanksgiving and I miss you. STAR Magazine via Celebitchy just gave me a reason to write about it. According to STAR, Ben Affleck will be shooting Superman & Batman in Vancouver. And since he supposedly fingered a girl in Vancouver while he was engaged to JLO, they’re saying Jennifer Garner’s going to lock him down when he’s there because she hates how he behaves in Vancity…what? This is why it’s amateur hour over at STAR. Full Story
