Daniel Craig Gossip

Daniel Craig gossip, latest news, photos, and video.

Dear Gossips,

Don’t you wish all celebrities would scrap the way Lily Allen and Cheryl Tweedy have been scrapping? Totally bad form of course but refreshing too – celebrities who actually say what they think. And get catty without apology. Love it.

Cannes begins today – will be heading down to the Palais to cover the opening ceremony and My Blueberry Nights. My people are VERY well represented this year – first Chinese director in history to kick off the festival and the inimitable Maggie Cheung as a member of the jury…am proud.

Am also undecided about what to wear. It’s between 2 black dresses – should I save the shorter one for Daniel Craig instead of wasting it on Jude Law? Yes I think so…

Tuesday, posting on the fly between shoots, check back often for new posts, and scroll down for late posts from yesterday. Am trying to keep up with North America time.

Yours in gossip,

Dear Gossips,

French women are so ridiculously beautiful and chic – it’s a form of entertainment just watching them. Dylan calls them Weapons of Ass Destruction… we’ve been ogling for 2 straight days along the Croisette in Cannes – is that pervy?

Festival madness is officially upon us. Tomorrow it’s My Blueberry Nights: Norah Jones’s much anticipated feature film debut. The movie will be presented right after the opening ceremony – Norah and Jude Law and director Wong Kar Wai will be walking the carpet. And if you’ve seen In the Mood for Love, you are probably well aware of his work…which is why this one is the one to watch. Wong’s first English language picture has everyone talking. Will keep you posted.

Went through my press package today – turns out Colin Firth is scheduled to attend next week in support of his latest St Trinian’s. Hello Quiver. More quiver also in the form of Bond himself, Daniel Craig for The Golden Compass. A chance to be within striking distance of a member of my Freebie Five? Goddess help my loins.

All the action from Cannes – and Hollywood too! - stay tuned.

Yours in gossip,

PS. Good luck to Lorraine who is getting married in 10 days. Congratulations! I know it’s been a rough go but hang in there and all the best!

Salma’s Dude and Daniel Craig

Call me Cruise and bat-sh-t blind… but in person? Francois-Henri Pinault, better known as Salma Hayek’s baby daddy, is actually kinda sexy. Like Daniel Craig – ugly sexy. Oozes money and power too...maybe that’s the reason. But I like to think I’m all over it because they were so sweet together, the way he clasped her hand, the way she looked up at him before heading inside the ballroom – not a look of submission but of equality: a comfortable partnership…it was adorable. Full Story

Children of Men Exclusive DVD Giveaway!!!

Two words: Clive Owen. One question: want him? In my ranking of Ugly Hotties, Clive slips in at #2. Behind Daniel Craig and in front of Gerard Butler though that could change after tonight – am seeing 300 – but I doubt it. Not down with the beard. So unless he loses the 1970s French porn vaginal growth that the costume designers have stuck to his face, Gerard stays off the Freebie Five. Full Story

Dear Gossips, I spent the night with Daniel Craig and the Bond DVD. Oh.Holy.Quiveration. Especially the footage of him training in Prague. Something about the way he wears his sweats… between Daniel, Gerard Butler, and Clive Owen, I think I’m STILL on Team 007. Forgive me? Friday – blogging all day, check back often for fresh posts. Have a great weekend! Yours in gossip, Lainey PS. At the VERY least, Friends was only half an hour. And since it became the Rachel Green Fashion Show towards the end anyway, the clothes were always a good distraction. With Grey’s? It’s like there’s nowhere left to hide and the fascination has now become – How Much Worse Can It Possibly Get???

The Daily Quiveration: Gerard Butler

More for you than it is for me. Or least those of you who plead so ardently for Gerry’s inclusion on the Freebie 5. He’s hunky, alright. And talented. And Scottish. The accent is important. And not a famewhore. And sexy enough. And if he’s on yours, I totally get it. But my problem is choosing between him and Clive Owen and Daniel Craig – each unique in his own right but for all intents and purposes, each belongs in the same Rugged-not-Pretty-not-Conventional-but-Quivering-as-all-Hell Category and as such, which one do you single out on a list of only 5? But that’s my problem, not yours. Full Story

Best Bond

I’m sorry…been a little slow on the draw today – still haven’t slept, still wrapping up today’s show for eTalk, and have just been assigned to one more day in LA. Perhaps I’ll run into Orly again at the crack of dawn in the Roosevelt lobby? Anyway, a thousand apologies for the delay in finishing up the Fashion Review, particularly to Susan in Washington who wrote to express how disappointed she was that I haven’t been able to get to it. Full Story

Three Whiskers up close

Quick fashion interruption – thought you’d want to know. Ben and I were waiting to be picked up outside the Roosevelt at 4am for morning talk show interviews. Orlando Bloom rolls in with a wingman or two, heads upstairs, comes back down a few minutes later and an SUV full of giggling girls is idling at valet – you’ll be happy to know he travels in an environmentally friendly SUV. Full Story

Bond at the Oscars

Lainey Posted by Lainey at February 9, 2007 12:00:00 February 9, 2007 12:00:00

Many of you have him on your Freebie Five - to me he looks better in a tux than he does in a pair of wet shorts. And chances are…he’ll be wearing a tux on Oscar night. Announced yesterday, Daniel Craig joins Nicole Kidman, Will Ferrell, and Reese Witherspoon as presenters confirmed so far – pretty high profile to start, with more to follow in the coming days. Full Story

The Daily Gorgessity: Sharon Stone

Source She’ll probably go postal any day now but holy sh-t…what I would give for that dress, even if she’s bruising black with blue. Not bad for an older broad and as I said before, too bad she’s so loopy. Maybe Daniel Craig can fix her. I know you probably don’t approve but can you imagine a sex scene between those two? Full Story

Kidman & Bond inspired by the Pitts?

Lainey Posted by Lainey at January 3, 2007 12:00:00 January 3, 2007 12:00:00

Is it just me or does this new photoshoot for W remind you of the Pitts’ infamous “dysfunctional family” spread last year? Something about the seductive yet sinister feel of the images? Maybe it’s just me. So here she is, airbrushed but totally gorgeous and sexy as all hell, alongside the new triumphant Bond – they look fantastic together, non? Makes me wonder – why did she have to hire from Country? Why not Daniel Craig? Love Nicole with straight hair and I especially love it when she plays sultry vixen…SO much more convincing than devoted small town housewife raising her kids and relaxing in the cornfields. Full Story
