Poor Jacek. I had 24 hours of her from Saturday through Sunday and he got nothing. Saturday morning it was a screening for Little White Lies (Les Petits Mouchoirs) directed by Guillaume Canet. It’s not a bad movie, and she’s lovely in it, but goddamn, the film started at 9am. I had to be in makeup by 11am to make it to her red carpet before noon, and at 11:30am the movie was still happening and finally at 11:35pm I had to run with a bare face to slap some concealer on at the office to head to the theatre. Full Story

Tilda in Venice

For Venus Noire last night. A vision. Tilda was there with Luca Guadagnino, her director from I Am Love. While promoting I Am Love a few moths ago, Tilda was interviewed by Katie Couric – did you ever see it? If no, it’s worth a look when you have some time. To hear her speak, so articulately, so elegantly, she is mesmerising. Full Story

On September 17th, when Easy A hits theatres, everyone will know Emma Stone. Let me squeeze in a little gloat here though, if you don’t mind? I’ve had an Emma Stone hard-on for a long time now. And I’ve also been saying Emma Stone is (just) one of the reasons why Lindsay Lohan needs to worry. Full Story

Her glasses match his jacket

As declared a couple of weeks ago, any time there are new Cate Blanchett photos, they will get posted. Here’s Cate tonight in Sydney with husband Andrew Upton at the Griffin Theatre’s production of Quack, totally unfussy about her hair, and still steezier than everyone, in Australia and beyond, with a crazy jacket I want so badly and purple rimmed glasses that seem to match her husband’s jacket, a little tacky with those stones on the top edge but somehow, it’s Cate, so it works. Full Story

The best is generous

Love her so f-cking much. There’s a reason why Stephen King, and so many J.K. Rowling fans, took such offence to those early dumbass comparisons between Harry Potter and Twilight. One is gold, the other is ass, and it’s incredibly insulting to Jo’s great talent and her legacy to put her in the same sentence as that silly Stephenie Meyer. Full Story

They all support Lauryn

This will give you goose pimples. At the 2010 Rock the Bells show in NYC, so many of them were there – Beyonce, Jay-Z, Alicia Keys Mary J Blige, Chris Rock, John Legend – to witness the return of... Ms Lauryn Hill. Please. It’s been too f-cking long. But she had to take her time. As Duana wrote a couple months ago – click here for a refresher Full Story

Emma Watson arrived back in London yesterday and hooked up with friends for dinner and a night out, photographed candidly for the first time at home with her new hair. The day before her boyfriend George Craig and his band One Night Only promoted their album at HMV. George apparently has competition in the form of wee Justin Bieber who wants to take Emma to one of his own shows Full Story

Get Cate when you can

If she shows up somewhere, you post. It’s law. This is Cate Blanchett tonight at the opening of Osage County at the Sydney Theatre. She of course is the Co-Artistic Director of the Sydney Theatre Company with her husband Andrew Upton, a post she has just renewed. I mean...what else would she wear? You also take Cate when you can because for the next while she won’t be around much outside home. Full Story

If you don’t love Emma Thompson, we’re not only fighting, we are fighting to the death. Emma Thompson received her star today on the Walk of Fame. Maggie Gyllenhaal, her co-star in Nanny McPhee and her old schoolmate Hugh Laurie were on hand to celebrate with her. Look at her. She is game for every occasion. Full Story

One note Blake

It was supposed to be the Comic-Con panel for The Green Lantern. Instead Blake Lively tried to make it about her breasts. Hard-ons aside, I mean, really, is it necessary? There were people who I interviewed in line waiting for hours, I mean hours, in the heat, they’d come from far and wide, and if they wanted to see cleave, they could have stayed at home with their laptops and jerked off. Full Story

Tina Fey at Comic-Com

Love her so much. Looks like a normal person. Little but not unusally little. And pretty but nice pretty. And super chill and she and Will Ferrell (for MegaMind) had "Brad Pitt" with them and through the panel she kept trying to "manage" Brad and Brad was so awkward and cumbersome, it was a show within a show. Full Story
