Crushes on empowering, inspiring, or sexy female celebs.

Gwyneth steaming cod

She covers UK Vogue and now US Harper’s Bazaar as promotion builds for Iron Man 2, due for release on May 7th. Regular folk hate my G, but the fashion people, they love her. It’s a safe, not very provocative article, which is no surprise. And if the subject were Kate Beckinsale or Jennifer Garner, it would indeed be a boring one. Full Story

Cate back to movies

Lainey Posted by Lainey at April 9, 2010 07:47:10 April 9, 2010 07:47:10

Cate Blanchett has had a lighter film schedule the last year or so, focusing on her duties as co-director of the Sydney Theatre Company with her husband and travelling as Blanche DuBois with A Streetcar Named Desire for productions in Washington and New York, unless you count the “behind the scenes” film that Steven Soderbergh shot while he was directing a play for the STC last year. Full Story

Winona... comeback... again

Well f-ck me gently with a chainsaw... Winona Ryder’s comebacks have started and sputtered several times. This time however, this time seems like the most legitimate and perhaps the last shot. EW.com is reporting that Winona has won a major role in the new Ron Howard feature starring Vince Vaughn. Full Story

Jo & the Easter Egg Roll

There she is. My idol. Your idol? JK Rowling participated in the White House Easter Egg Roll yesterday in Washington where she read to the children from The Philosopher’s Stone. And then the kids they shouted questions at her like: Q: What’s you favorite Harry Potter book?!?!!?!?!?!!?A: The seventh. Full Story

Emily goes shopping

This is Emily Blunt after shopping at Fred Segal on Melrose yesterday. You know, the last time I was at that Fred Segal (Oscar week) it sucked. The time before it sucked too. Opening Ceremony is so much better. Anyway, Emily who has long occupied a spot on my top 10 list of girlcrushes was just named to the list of Top 10 Actresses under 30. Full Story

Tina & Steve in Berlin

And now the Date Night press tour begins. Date Night opens April 9th. Duana and I talked about this while she was getting ready for work this morning, lacing up her Alexander Wangs while I tried not to yell at her because I’m jealous and petty. I saw these photos of Tina Fey and Steve Carell in Berlin at the photo call and I said “I don’t want Date Night to suck, the trailer looks good, please don’t let it suck” and she said “I’m worried. Full Story

Emma and the pig

Love her so much. She knows she must look foolish but she also doesn't give a sh-t. Why not have a good time? So many of her peers take themselves too seriously. Emma's like - sure, whatever, I can walk a pig down the carpet. Give me the lead. And I'll laugh my way through. And everyone will adore me. Full Story

Tina Fey, in addition to all her other jobs, is also busy promoting Date Night. Last night she stopped by Letterman. You’ve seen the Letterman arrivals. They’re always in their tight dresses and high heels. In the rain however, Tina Fey has no time for that. Yellow wellies, very practical. Full Story

Emma’s new hair

She had it cut several weeks ago and we haven’t given it its proper due. Looks amazing. Love her so much. Emma Thompson is currently making promotional rounds promoting Nanny McPhee and the Big Bang, due for release in the UK this weekend, not due for release in North America until late August. Full Story

Please be Portman and not Lohan

As I’ve already noted several times, for the last few months, they have successfully whipped me into a frenzy for Kick-Ass. It’s been a brilliant online campaign. And finally I’m seeing it at a screening later on this morning. Can’t wait. Unfortunately reviews have been embargoed until release. Full Story

Miss you so much

Lainey Posted by Lainey at March 19, 2010 09:50:52 March 19, 2010 09:50:52

We’ve just cleared our second award season in a row without Cate Blanchett. Missed her so much. Cate has focused on work at home in Australia, without too many film commitments, save Robin Hood which will fight for box office supremacy in May, due for release just a week after RDJ’s Iron Man 2. Full Story
