Lil C-Face

I really love how know-it-all you all are about your gossip. Late yesterday I posted this article re: Julia Roberts and Natalie Portman and Julia’s piece in Variety praising Natalie, with a reference to a nickname. And then came your emails know-it-alling about what the nickname was; it comes from an interview Natalie gave to Peter Sarsgaard for Interview Magazine during which she reveals that when she first met Julia she presented her with a necklace that said C-NT. Full Story

Julia knows this Natalie

We were liveblogging last year’s Golden Globe Awards but would gladly have stopped after the best moment of the entire show happened on the carpet: WHO’s NATALIE???????? See? This is why you invite Julia Roberts. Everywhere. While Julia may not have known that particular Natalie (Morales? Does it matter? Julia doesn’t KNOW HER. Full Story

Jen’s new BFF

Never mind that as soon as she got tight with Jennifer Aniston, the quality of the guests on her show started improving. In their industry, you’re always trading up. In Chelsea’s case, trading up means softening out. So she didn’t ask Taylor Swift straight up if she and Jakey G are f-cking. Full Story

Jake, Natalie, Florence & the Baby

Remember when Jakey and Natalie used to date for 5 minutes? They are much better as friends, I know, but I was also really into it when they kissed in Brothers. Anyway, Natalie’s been closely involved with FINCA for a number of years now, and she showed up at the 25th anniversary event in New York and so did Jake and they greeted each other affectionately and posed together which pretty much kills any chance of the two of them rekindling because you know how it works – when there’s something to hide, they’ll make it obvious by avoiding each other; their willingness to be together then means that they’re actually never going to be together. Full Story

Two boys to the rescue

I watched half of Inception again on the flight back to Vancouver earlier this week. Goddamn Tom Hardy is so f-cking hot. Imagine if you were in distress and Tom Hardy came to rescue you all sexy and sh-t in his perfectly tailored suit? Please. It would have been nice to have Reese Witherspoon’s job yesterday. Full Story

Black Swan is coming

Lainey Posted by Lainey at November 12, 2010 09:12:09 November 12, 2010 09:12:09

It began in Venice, Black Swan being declared one of the best of the year and expected to contend at the Oscars. Then they went underground with the hype for a while, smartly I think, to make sure it didn’t buzz out before the release date on December 3rd. So we’re close now, a month away from the Golden Globe nominations and then it’s balls out from there. Full Story

Failed audition? Or initiation?

Nicole Richie hit the gym the other day. She’s not usually photographed at the gym. Nicole would rather be photographed all steezy and sh-t wearing Winter Kate. You know who always gets photographed at the gym, though? Yeah. Ashley Greene. And somehow on the day she and Nicole were working out together, the paps show up – several agencies – to document the fact that they are (or were) friends. Full Story

Made to be best friends

No disrespect to Europeans, but as I’ve always said, there’s a different benchmark for fame here. They get famous for less here (although I suppose with reality tv, it’s not a huge discrepancy anymore in North America) and they stay famous longer here. Taylor Momsen did something at the EMAs last night in Madrid. Full Story

Franco & Copley

Lainey Posted by Lainey at November 4, 2010 09:03:31 November 4, 2010 09:03:31

Two buddy cops, right? It’s a good combination. But first, James Franco is hitting the circuit hard right now promoting 127 Hours, opening this weekend. Highly highly recommend. He is so great, delivers such an amazing performance in this movie, only you have to steel yourself. You have to prepare yourself for a lot of discomfort, not only at the gruesome parts, but also by how you might feel while relating to that kind of isolation, desperation, loneliness, and, ultimately, with every minute that passes, the seeming futility of the situation. Full Story

The reason for the pumpkin patch

Lainey Posted by Lainey at October 19, 2010 14:16:45 October 19, 2010 14:16:45

Last week I posted this article with photos of Christina Aguilera at the pumpkin patch playing good mommy with her kid Max noting: Oh this can only mean some sh-t is about to go down. Or leak out. When someone wants to look this good this quickly, you know it’s for storage. Full Story
