I spent some time yesterday thinking about the Rihanna and Leonardo DiCaprio situation while hopped up on painkillers. I’m telling you, it was a mental workout. I got a lot done in my mind. Leo ended last week with a story about how he’s preparing to play Billy Milligan in The Crowded Room about the guy who had 24 personalities and used that defence in court. Full Story

The trend over the last several years has to been to depict Sherlock Holmes as a dashing young detective, thanks to the one-two punch of Robert Downey, Jr.’s Victorian-era rake and Bimblesnort Cupcake’s twenty-first century misanthrope. But director Bill Condon has a new iteration for us—an older one. Full Story

FKA twigs is was in Paris yesterday for a performance. Robert Pattinson was seen leaving the venue with her, just after PEOPLE reported that the two had exchanged “promise rings”. I didn’t know we still did that. Isn’t an engagement ring a “promise” ring? Or is a “promise” ring like a pre-engagement ring? I’ve been monogamous for a long time. Full Story

Following a Twitter stunt in which fans had to tweet the hashtag #AvengersAssemble in order to “unlock” a new trailer—I imagine people at Marvel, drunk on their own power, screeching, “Dance monkeys, dance!” and cackling maniacally—yesterday Marvel released the final trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron, and it’s all our dreams come true. Full Story

Nicholas Hoult was photographed on the set of Top Gear yesterday in Sussex for the Star in a Reasonably Priced Car segment. There was a training session with the Stig. And then he did his laps. The final time, obviously, will air on the show. Like you, I tell myself that I would kick ass on this challenge. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Remember when I wrote yesterday that I was banking some goodwill?

Here's why: having surgery on my arm this morning. For those of you who are new to this blog, I f-cked it up in Cannes in 2008 after Mischa Barton bailed on an appearance that we were supposed to be covering. Click here for the full story. I blame her.

Anyway, at the time they inserted a rod to reattach my elbow which had fractured off and was floating away down my forearm. The rod itself is now, sort of, sliding out. See it on the x-rays? How close it is to my skin?

So I have to be at the hospital at 7am. Surgery starts at 10am, is expected to last 90 minutes if all goes as planned. And I'm going under which means there's a 3 hour recovery before they'll let me go home.

What I'm trying to say is that I can't blog today. Which sucks because Leonardo DiCaprio had his publicist issue a statement to let you know that he's single because people really want to believe he and Rihanna are doing it. Well, now I'm offended. His entire career there have been rumours up and down that he's banging this model or that model. There were a LOT of rumours that he was banging Miranda Kerr, remember? When she was still married to Orlando Bloom too. If there was any time to issue a statement, that would have been it. Silence from him then, though. But he can't handle a few weeks of speculation that he's hooking up with Rihanna? Everyone wants to hook up with Rihanna! Why the shame, asshole?

See? I'd much rather be working today. Unfortunately I couldn't get a late afternoon surgery appointment.
The surgeon says I should be good to go tomorrow though, back to writing, back to everything.

Sorry for the interruption to your gossip schedule and for the inconvenience.

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

Will Smith’s career over the last few years has been kind of a sh*t show. In between foisting his offspring on an unsuspecting public he’s starred in a series of bad movies (Men in Black III, After Earth, Winter’s Tale), and he lost some public goodwill along the way—as evidenced by his diminishing box office returns Full Story

No, really, isn’t she? She’s my favourite. I can’t be neutral on Kelly Clarkson. All I can do is go positive, ultra-positive, all the time. Because she’s SO lovely, SO nice, SO fun. And it’s real. You can tell when it’s not real. On our talk show here in Canada, The Social Full Story
