Robert Pattinson has been shooting Cosmopolis in Toronto. Fans have been trying to locate him for weeks; I’m told both production and his personal management have gone to great lengths to keep him away from them. Logistics, for example. It’s not so much securing an area for safety, but they’re going so far as to consider venues for employee traffic and eyeballs, to eliminate the Twitter and Facebook elements as much as they can. Full Story

Look, I have, happily, never been arrested, yet, and I don’t know all that many people with that experience and certainly never in Southern California so I have no idea which is why I’m wondering… Do they measure and weigh you when you’re getting booked?

Like an auteur misunderstood. Some would say that’s how he gets off. And yesterday he pushed that too far. During a press conference for his new film Melancholia, which is receiving some very good reviews, and in competition this year, Von Trier first decided to publicly discuss Kirsten Dunst’s struggle with depression, and then went off on a ramble about Jews and Nazis and Hitler. Full Story

Ri, what are you doing? Have you heard? Rihanna and Chris Brown followed each other on Twitter. There's speculation now that they've been private messaging each other. The Twitter world was all over it, and all over her, for the move, and she responded by tweeting out to everyone that it's "just f-cking Twitter", like relax motherf-ckers, it's no big. Full Story

There was a deal made at Cannes. The story: Two people start dating. She's slightly older. Then they find out she used to babysit him. This is supposed to be romantic AND hilarious. Really??? Apparently they think you would want to see this movie. I guess I might not be the best judge of what women do and don't want to see. Full Story

Written by DuanaThat’s my pitch for the name of the new Bristol Palin reality show. Or maybe I’m being too on-the-nose. Maybe it should be something like “All For The Good”, since she’s working for a charity. Full Story

Received several panicked emails yesterday when I was out in the field about James McAvoy and … January Jones? There was no context so it was puzzling. Then I hopped on a computer at the Palais and read about Ted Casablanca's report that the father of her child was someone on the X-Men set … which… fine, I mean I'm still not sure why people care that January Jones is pregnant but sure, there are a lot of people on a set - crew, cast, studio, marketing, etc - and I don't doubt she could have hooked up with any of them. Full Story

Every few months or so she’s at it – bringing up Oscar, like it’s some kind of foregone conclusion. Lindsay LOHAN can’t stay out of court, but somehow she thinks she’s going to win an Oscar? And by the time she’s 30? This is what she told Jay Leno on The Tonight Show last night, you know, after she regurgitated all the sh-t you’re supposed to say when you’ve f-cked up: I’ve taken responsibility, I made mistakes, I’ve learned, I’m better… Are you? It’s a goddamn script. Full Story
