(Lainey: as promised, there will be a lot of G on the site today. Previously we heard from Dean. Here’s Maria’s take on Gwyneth’s new cookbook.) It’s a wonderful time for gossip when Gwyneth is promoting something because raging on her is practically a national pastime. Full Story

Who? If you don’t know, congratulations. Because you obviously haven’t made the mistake of reading Fifty Shades of Grey. I envy you. I want to UN-read it. Can you imagine if un-reading was possible? I could UN-read Ethan Hawke’s books. And read Harry Potter again for the very first time? Anyway, Fifty Shades Of Grey is the story of Anastasia Steele who falls in love with Christian Grey who is super f-cked up and afraid of commitment and only wants to dick her in his special sex room and doesn’t want a relationship but of course then he falls in love with her because she’s not really that special, having just graduated from college with no particular distinction and no defined skills and no real personality. Full Story

Here’s Jennifer Lawrence all over New York the last couple days on a final hard push for The Hunger Games which, as mentioned yesterday, could open as high as $120 million but probably no lower than $80 million which is, obviously, massive. As a result, shares in Lionsgate are exploding, up almost 30% over the last month and almost 90% in 2012 alone. Full Story

The paps are trying to tell me that this is her new boyfriend having broken up with Johnny Simmons. I dunno. I mean she’s studying at Oxford, she’s meeting new people, I’m not sure a guy she goes shopping with, who spends the night and doesn’t change his red pants, qualifies as a bonafide boyfriend. Let the girl be 21. Full Story
