The Alba Bitch says she doesn’t want to be a sex symbol, that she fancies herself an actor, wants serious roles, does not appreciate pappy attention… At the same time, whenever she has a movie to promote, somehow she appears on magazine covers wearing very little clothing. Kinda like Jessica Biel: wanting more but knowing the TV Girl Truth – at the heart of it, there’s only the Body. Full Story

Am writing this from my Blackberry. Due to my absence today, I"ve asked my brilliant and talented friend Duana to guest write a piece. Du is a screenwriter which means she"s a real writer - not some trashy chinese internet hack who babbles incessantly. Thanks Du - love you! So.

And her man too. It’s winter in Australia, right? Cate at a screening during the Sydney Film Festival with husband Andrew Upton. That coat is a f&cking treasure. And her hair, and her glow, and her smile. And no…he’s no Brad Pitt. And clearly she’s definitely a bigger person than shallow, superficial, petty me. Full Story

Several weeks ago, one of the UK rags took a photo of Cate Blanchett from the worst possible angle at the Costume Institute Gala and called her anorexic. She was and is not anorexic. This morning they printed this photo of the incomparably beautiful Kate Winslet with the following caption: Perhaps it"s a little too figure-hugging, Kate? What. Full Story

Angelina Jolie surprised everyone after Cannes in A Mighty Heart, kicking off Oscar speculation very early in the season with an unexpected bid and the Pitt publicity machine behind her full force, putting her up against Cate Blanchett’s second turn as Elizabeth in the Golden Age, long considered to one the one to beat. Full Story

There’s something to be said about the beauty of Managed Expectations, you know? Some people get it, some people don’t overreach – broken record, I know, and still every day, another two bit tv actress comes along and wants to be Cate Blanchett. Which is why it’s so refreshing that Katie Heigl has no such delusions. Full Story

Minnie Driver at the Opening Ceremony last night – this photo taken from the Daily Mail, same publication that printed the so-called anorexic picture of Cate Blanchett last week. And as in the case with Case, had I not seen Minnie myself, I would be alarmed yes by the size of her waist. But believe it or not, up to you, in person she’s actually nowhere near starvation. Full Story

Hermy too Pretty, Sh-t by Association

Want objectivity? Ok. Hermy used to be hated. In fact, since I haven’t pushed my Chinese ass to update the Gossip Guide – site redesign coming, will be updated soon…promise – I think she’s still on there under the Hate List originally written in 2005. Why? For her bad attitude, for the bad hygiene rumours, for the formerly mashed up face… Then of course Hermy Cam started smiling for the cameras and when attack mode was put away, Hermy Cam became Pretty Cam without a c*ck – Hermy put away. Full Story

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, two of the biggest, if not THE biggest players in Hollywood, and if they all play the game, if it’s a level playing field, it’s undeniable then that when these two bring their A Game, they play it better than anyone else. Angelina on promo for A Mighty Heart – there is some buzz that they are trying to push for an Oscar (although smart money early in the race is on Cate Blanchett for The Golden Age) and in the face of so many conflicting and sometimes malicious reports in the tabloids, Angelina is carefully choosing how to pimp her message… first an interview alongside Mariane Pearl Full Story

Dear Gossips,

LOVE New York! Arrived late last night, back briefly in Vancouver before heading to Edmonton this afternoon – a few quick lingering thoughts re: Costume Gala etc first…

And had the honour of interviewing the most amazing woman yesterday for eTalk. Her name is Brandusa Niro (no stranger to the fashion cognoscenti out there) editor in chief of The Daily which of course is devoured by every style know-it-all during New York Fashion Week twice a year and editor in chief of the Fashion Mini – like an Us Weekly for the fashion industry, fashion gossip for the fashion insider – now published every month but up to this point sold only in select cities in the US…until now. Available in Canada starting July…love, love, love.

It’s Wednesday, live blogging, check back often for new posts.

Yours in gossip,

PS. Re: Cate Blanchett…yes, I’ve seen the photo printed by the UK tabloids accusing anorexia, and I’ve read your emails blasting me for saying she looked great at the Gala. Believe whatever you want but that photo was taken from a ridiculously bad angle under the most terrible light inside a white tent with every kind of weird glare bouncing from side to side and up and down. Girl is naturally slender anyway and also naturally pretty pale. Because she’s not Jessica Simpson obsessively on a tanning bed! Anyway, at one point, I was standing 5 feet away from her. She was not shockingly thin, she was not deathly thin, no one gasped – as suggested by the rags. There were no “murmurs” of alarm about her frame and everyone I was around seemed to be in agreement with her gorgessity, including members of our crew that consisted of a non-fashion dude cameraman who doesn’t know a Stam from a Birkin - even he was impressed by her beauty. But that’s boring right? Stick thin sells papers, period…but nevermind that last Fall she signed onto a film called Cancer Vixen based on Marisa Acocella Marchetto"s real life battle with the disease. By the way – did you know that Christian Bale lost 65 pounds for a movie called The Machinist and no one lost their sh-t? Sorry, I digress. All I’m saying is give her some credit. It’s CATE BLANCHETT and not some learning impaired Hollywood starlet battling the Hollywood standard. You think the formidable Cate Blanchett would succumb to vain starvation? Please.
