'Special' Celebrities and Hollywood stars who make you laugh and smile by being overly pampered, out-of-touch, eccentric, or hilariously delusional.

Colin & Tom

Please. These men. These suits. I love so much. Colin Firth was in the lobby the other day waiting to exit. I only saw him from behind at first. Noticed the suit. And the height. He is a tall, tall man. And he carries himself so beautifully it’s instantly recognisable. Stationed at the side entrance so as not to be mobbed by the throng outside, his publicist led him out to the sedan waiting to pick him up. Full Story

The George Mob

Everyone here in Toronto is on high Clooney alert. Even though he hasn’t travelled more than 3 blocks from his hotel since arriving, he cannot go anywhere on foot. Must be in a car from stop to stop, even if it’s only 100 yards, not because he’s high maintenance but because it’s a security issue. Full Story

She’s not high fiving his penis

What would it be like without John Mayer? I’ll never stop slagging him but I also don’t want him to stop asking to be slagged. So there was a story circulating yesterday that John Mayer has been secretly urinating on Kristin Cavallari from Laguna Beach/The Hills – click here Full Story

The GQ Men of the Year Awards event is happening right now in London. Mickey Rourke is there for some reason. I will not assault your eyes with his photo. Am only attaching one man’s photo: Elvis Costello. Please. Who else do you need, man-wise? Also – the gorgeous Freida Pinto wearing slightly too much dress and Lily Allen in a cougar negligee and a f-cked up weave. Full Story

Listening to Leo

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

Hugh Stahhhhh!

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

It’s time for Whitney

Lainey Posted by Lainey at September 1, 2009 12:30:09 September 1, 2009 12:30:09

I was a blubbering mess when I saw Whitney at the listening session in New York earlier this summer. Click here to read the article. Whitney’s new album I Look To You is available now. A true superstar declaring that it’s time we stop f-cking around with the pretenders. 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
