Tom Cruise is in Toronto right now – media blitz for the embattled Valkyrie which, am told, is not a bad movie, and a very interesting story, but for Tom’s involvement and he’s completely overshadowed and out-acted by Kenneth Branagh, Tom Wilkinson, and Bill Nighy. Valkyrie’s success or failure, of course, falls on the diminutive GMD. Full Story

F-ck off…but don’t stop caring

Jennifer Aniston and Owen Wilson sat down with USA Today to promote Marley & Me. They talked about dogs a lot, which would have made it a super interview for someone like me, but then of course she had to kill it with her hypocritically indignant diatribe about public interest in her personal life. Full Story

Carseats don’t photograph well

Self promotion > child safety… After all, if Granny Freeze had had Sunday Rose in a car seat, the paps would not have been able to pull off such a good shot. And above all things, Nicole Kidman must be seen as a doting mother, a woman transformed by her beautiful little girl. Which is why no one has bothered to call her out on it. Full Story

Shelf Ass Jessica Biel spent part of yesterday touring a new hospital and then hanging out with kids at LA’s Children’s Hospital during the Make The Difference Network holiday party. Clever Shelfy. A new strategy. Taking the Jolie approach. Well played. Because not everyone bothers to dig deep. Full Story

She speaks her own language

What makes me craziest? Hearing people, when talking about celebrities, actually trying to relate to them – a frequent theme in my inbox: Lainey, be nice. Lainey, try to understand. Lainey, more compassion please. How would YOU feel if x,y, and z? Answer: I wouldn’t. Because they don’t live in our world, they don’t live by our rules. Full Story

Sunday Rose: just like Little Sci

Granny and the GMD were together a long time. You learn a lot over a decade. You learn about contracts and marriage, you learn about fraud, you learn about famewhoring, you learn what to do when your back is up against a wall, when your career is in jeopardy, when you can no longer sell a movie… Get your baby daughter to do it for you! As you know, Australia’s box office was decidedly unimpressive over the weekend. Full Story

Granny clutches her womb

Again? Not sure. But don’t put it past her to make you think it. Last time she was “pregnant”, Granny Freeze Nicole Kidman made a point, always, of using her hand to draw attention to the fact that she was indeed roasting a Sunday inside her womb. Tonight in Paris at the premiere of Australia, she was at it again… We get it. Full Story

They all gathered for dinner last night in New York after Katie’s performance on Broadway – a double family Thanksgiving feast. Italian. Which means Victoria had one piece of penne and 3 slices of plain grilled zucchini, hold the olive oil. Both the Beckhams and the Cruises brought all three of their children – check out David carrying his two younger boys out at the end of the night, Isabella and Connor were there too, and of course a very tired Little Sci. Full Story

It is a new world. A world the GMD is not altogether familiar with. These days, the number one movie at the box office is sold at the mall. Many malls across America. These days you have to hustle. Tom Cruise hasn’t had to hustle in a very long time. But Tom Cruise must hustle now. Valkyrie is on the brink of disaster. Full Story

Robo and Little Sci wear dresses

Out and about in New York today. Little Sci’s little dress is, as always, the cutest. But her mother… I don’t know what that is. Like, plaid might be all the rage but in this form? But plaid in prairie styles? With boots in the winter and not on the beach? And you know she CARES about style. Full Story

Robo evolved?

The GMD and his RoboBride celebrate 2 years of wedded bliss today. Two years ago the entire world was invited to Rome. And David Miscavige was Tom Cruise’s maid of honour. And Katie Holmes’s imprisonment continues. However despite the rumours and the bullsh-t headlines concocted by Life & Style, twice now proclaiming the end of the marriage, the GMD’s hold on KatE is as firm as ever. Full Story
