Colin Firth, Geoffrey Rush, and Helena Bonham Carter were at the photocall for The King’s Speech today at the London Film Festival, screening tonight for a home audience. Needless to say, this will be the film that sweeps the BAFTAs, right? Colin seems to be working out a curious little side lean action here. Full Story

How’s my girl Emma Stone? Well, she’s hosting Saturday Night Live this weekend, musical guest Kings of Leon. She’s attached to the highly anticipated new Spider-Man, and she asked Paul McCartney to design her tattoo. Emma told Letterman last week that the tattoo is for her mother who is in remission from breast cancer. Full Story

Tina’s book on the other hand...

Tina Fey signed a book deal 2 years ago. Worth millions. She’s a proper writer, after all. And what I love about this is that her book isn’t ready yet. Unlike these other “authors” who whip their sh-t off in 3 months, Tina’s might not be ready for a while. Because it takes time. Full Story

Written by Sarah There are two things that really suck for actors: getting famous overnight and getting famous for playing a beloved character. If the former, you’re always proving that you deserve what looks like a lottery win, and if the latter you’re always fighting the specter of that beloved character. Full Story

Written by Sarah It’s been building for a while, and this weekend cemented Emma Stone’s place on my girlcrush list. It was something of an odyssey weekend for Emma, hitting three events in three days in two different countries. Full Story

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

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
