Alanis in a groove

These are high times for Alanis Morissette. It’s a weak line, but it works. As you know, Alanis is enjoying a 7 ep arc on Weeds (please say you watch Weeds, please say you watch Weeds and not the other bullsh-t) after wrapping a successful 2 year run with Flavours of Entanglement, is supposed to star in a film adapted from Radio Free Albemuth, is happy and healthy, is involved with a non celebrity, and looks better than she ever has. Full Story

An afternoon with the Potter kids

Let’s start with Bonnie Wright. She’s tiny. Was wearing flats, as was I, and we’re the same height, only she’s thinner, though not unhealthy. Very still, small movements, extremely articulate, quite reserved. Funnily enough, it’s the Weasleys with the low energy, and Harry and Hermione who are much more animated. Full Story

She is the current face of Dior, starred in the House’s recent Lady Noire Affaire, and will soon be seen in the next installment Lady Red, shot in New York by Annie Leibovitz. That bag… oh la. The ads will begin running in August. And yesterday, in Paris for fashion week, front row seated next to Sidney Toledano, President & CEO of Christian Dior, of course it was Marion Cotillard. Full Story

Nobu and well

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

Jo so stylish!

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

Marion & Mom

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

Lainey Posted by Lainey at June 29, 2009 07:08:20 June 29, 2009 07:08:20

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

Sandra in NY, Ryan in Toronto

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

Jo at the gala

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

Two favourites

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

Lady Noir in New York

Lainey Posted by Lainey at June 2, 2009 16:08:59 June 2, 2009 16:08:59

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
