Written by Sarah I noticed it a few months ago in a cover profile of Robert Pattinson. The journalist kept mentioning how beautiful he was in between sound bites from her subject. I’ve seen Pattinson and he is a very good looking guy. Full Story

True story: I was just thinking this morning of writing in the open a note about how we went all last week without any pap photos taken from inside Lindsay LOHAN’s house during her house arrest. Then I thought better of it because, well, you know. And, well, you know. She threw a rooftop party this weekend and gave us a lot of side titty action. Full Story

Is James Franco in my ass. Or, rather, his voice. Have you heard? He’s releasing music now. I don’t have the energy to put into my own words the definition of this kind of sound, so I’ll quote from EW.com: “Franco is dropping an “EP of experimental electronic tracks with drag performer Kalup Linzy (who acted alongside Franco on General Hospital). Full Story

His bike. Did she know that Justin Timberlake would be at the MTV Movie Awards presenting with Mila Kunis and spending the weekend promoting Bad Teacher with his ex-girlfriend Cameron Diaz? Oh, I’m sure she had some idea. So... What did Shelfy get up to? Jessica Biel was photographed out for a ride on the back of Gerard Butler’s bike. Full Story

Last summer I read and reviewed a book called Furious Love. Original post is here. Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton – obsessing over their relationship is not so much a phase thing as it is a constant. They were of a time, of an age of movie star that we will simply never see again. Full Story

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? Yesterday Lindsay LOHAN checked herself in with the cops to get her ankle monitor and start her house arrest situation – 35 days, major eye roll –and TMZ Full Story

The last time Lars Von Trier came to Cannes, a lot of movie people stormed out the theatre, expressing disgust with Antichrist. He reacted as he does. Like people don’t get him. 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
