Our heroine JK Rowling attended the Raisa Gorbachev Foundation Party on Saturday held at Hampton Court Palace with her husband looking lovely in blue. We’re now 5 weeks away from the release of the Half Blood Prince film. And it’s been almost 2 years since the Deathly Hallows concluded Harry’s story. Full Story

Emma Thompson and Dustin Hoffman at the UK premiere of Last Chance Harvey. Look at them dancing! The cutest! Dustin also brought along his wife Lisa and their daughter. He ADORES his wife. Has done for many, many years. And they’re naughty. More like HE’s naughty. When I interviewed him in Cannes last year he kept joking about men being horny. Full Story

If I had to come back as a white person, I’d come back as Marion Cotillard. She’s perfect. It was very difficult to sit at the same restaurant recently with her and not beg her to be best friends. To eat my spinach risotto with my back to her and not turn around to offer her some. Fortunately it was the best spinach risotto I’ve ever tasted and sharing is stupid. Full Story

At the premiere of The Proposal last night in LA. See I love Sandra Bullock. I have loved her since Speed and way back when my dad bought me an illegal pay tv box in university, I watched While You Were Sleeping at least once a day for months because it kept looping on the movie channel. And it was never boring. Full Story

It’s Kate Winslet’s first carpet since winning her Oscar in February. She said she wanted to retreat, spend time with her children, her husband, and not work for a while. Unlike Granny Freeze Nicole Kidman, she’s true to her word. But she hit the circuit last night in support of Sam Mendes. Full Story

It’s the fourth year for us at Cannes. And every year we have at least one night at the du Cap. On a night when it’s best to get away from the Croisette, when we don’t have any evening assignments, we make our pilgrimage. There is no Dylan this time though. We miss Dylan. In 2007 Dylan stood next to George Clooney and called him wee. Full Story

Maya’s Hollywood timing

Love Maya Rudolph. She was on Letterman last night presumably to promote Away We Go. I’ve posted the trailer several times already. Can’t wait. Anyway, in the film, Maya and John Krasinski play expectant parents looking for a place to raise their child. And Maya just announced she’s pregnant with her second with Paul Thomas Anderson. Full Story

Best Hair: Marion Cotillard

She wore Dior and brought the girls out. My Marion has great breasts, non? Accompanied by John Galliano, sexy and sweet at the same time, and perfectly styled, every detail especially the sideswept hair which I’ve never tried but have always wanted to and for 5 minutes considered cutting my hair but then what would happen on all the days in between, when it’s boring and flat at a no-man’s length and, obviously, I don’t have her face? Am sad Marion did not come with Guillaume Canet. Full Story

Win and hide

It happens to almost all of the best actresses. They win, then the backlash it begins. Our Kate Winslet is trying to avoid this. Since receiving her Oscar in February, Kate has removed herself from the circuit, stayed in New York with family, close to her husband and her children, is not flitting from party to party, and has not been famewhoring herself on every red carpet. Full Story

Blair Scout

This will hurt Duana I think. It’s Leighton Meester last night at the Chloe opening in LA. Blair Waldorf would not approve. The gaping at the chest looks skanky. And heavy. This is a small girl. It’s doing nothing for her body. Next up: Scout LaRue Willis. Rumey’s sister – it’s her turn! She’s cute, non? Scout turns 18 this year and made her debut at the Crillon Bal last November in Paris. Full Story
