On the day that MJ and Farrah Fawcett both passed, a series of celebrity hoax deaths made the rounds on the internet. So f-cking dumbass, right? Anyway Natalie Portman was one of them. Natalie, obviously, is fine. And was out last night in London with some friends, enjoying a 3 hour dinner at Nobu before emerging in a really cute checkered dress with heels and a blowout. Full Story

Out for dinner tonight in London, in town for the big premiere tomorrow. What premiere? Of course you know what premiere. Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince, the film adaptation of the 6th book in her brilliant 7 book series. There’s no doubt Jo will be there tomorrow night. But tonight a warm-up with her husband, in trendy heels and a little black dress, she is sexy and styling and who’s more badass than JK Rowling? No equal. Full Story

Paris premiere of Public Enemies yesterday. Christian Bale does not seem to be accompanying Johnny Depp and Marion Cotillard on the European leg of promotion. They must not think they need him. Have you seen it yet? Most of you who have seen it have written to say that you love it. Good! It’s a movie featuring real actors and real acting. Full Story

Alicia would never

I love Alicia Keys. So much. It would kill me if she turned out to be a twat. I interviewed Alicia briefly at the Superbowl in 2008 in Phoenix. Michelle was producing. And I remember both of us, even though our loins were pointed in the direction of John Krasinski, both of us were totally girlcrushing on her. Full Story

Promoting their film The Proposal. Sandy taped an appearance for Letterman last night, pictured outside the theatre with a Cruella-ish blonde stripe – don’t like but whatever, it’s Sandy. She’s the best. And she had to work with the whiniest. That would be Ryan Reynolds who was in Toronto yesterday for an appearance on MuchMusic, smug foundation face fully intact. Full Story

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
