LipGloss Zac Efron has maintained a very, very low profile in Vancouver while working on his new film Charlie St Cloud. Stays away from party places, is smart about his movements, and is focusing all his energy on his role. He is professional on set, rather aloof but polite, and eager to learn, clearly intent on modelling his career after his idol Leonardo DiCaprio. Full Story

This is how my mother says “star”. All her friends too. Chinese people love putting an “ah” to every word. Example: What time is it? I dung lo ah. Translation: I don’t know ah. So about Hugh Jackman – he’s a stahhhhh. It’s Hugh in Tokyo promoting Wolverine today, delighting hundreds of screaming admirers who lined up to see a celebrity who never seems to fail his fans. Full Story

Begging for Ewan

Am currently kissing Laura’s ass. Every day. Laura is running our TIFF programme. Which means she makes the call on who gets assigned for which interviews/carpets/screenings. Normally I try to stay off the junket board until I’m told. It can get tedious going from room to room asking the same questions, trying to make magic with only 3 – 5 minutes stuck in a small room opposite a surly actor. Full Story

Live like Tom Ford

If only I had £8 million sitting around. £8 million for just 3,700 square ft. Sick. So Tom Ford has put his London home on the market. Considering the f-ckery that’s been flying around all day, this might be my only chance at Fried Rice: A glimpse inside his lair. Chrome walls. His own book on the coffee table. Full Story

The Silver Fox vs Speidi

He is… Scrumtrilescent. The f-cking best. Anderson Cooper last night devoted some time on The Shot to take one at Heidi Montag’s Miss Universe f-ckery. And he gave her the gears. He questioned her identity. Who the f-ck is she? He called her deluded. He said she’s talented and pathetic. Full Story

Anna & Dave

I have watched it 3 times. And it gets better and better. Like Airplane. There’s always some new amazingness that reveals itself with each viewing. Awkward but not super intense, both of them refusing to give, confrontational but not ugly – he asked what he wanted to ask, she replied the way she wanted to reply, and it was compelling the whole way through. Full Story

Birthday Bolt by request

This is for Shani R who emailed about the lack of Jamaican representation on the site, specifically re: Usain Bolt’s performance at the World Championships this week. True. It’s his birthday today. And he is celebrating it in Berlin as the only sprinter in history to own both the Olympic and World 100m and 200m titles and world records. Full Story

September Issue BitchFace

As you know, there is an art to BitchFace. When it’s delivered by the best, it is an honour to receive it. Lara and I have received Anna Wintour’s BitchFace. I wish the same for each and every one of you. Full Story

How to get Strange

My shamef-ck is Ed Westwick. For some of you, it’s Russell Brand. Don’t lie. I know. Especially if you’ve read My Booky Wook. Best title ever. And look at him. In London shooting Get Him To The Greek in his amazing exercise outfit skeezing out the world, loving every minute, and collecting a LOT of strange along the way. Full Story
