G20 Summit – many demonstrations, major controversy, this is not the place. Let’s stick with something less contentious. There should be no debate about this one. A power women dinner or something this week at 10 Downing Street. Michelle Obama is the guest of honour. Seated beside her… Our Jo. Full Story

Amanda Seyfried and Dominic Cooper seen here leaving the Chateau Marmont last night. Amanda, she’s the girl of the moment. Sometimes that can cost you. Amanda was booked for the lead role in the upcoming Sucker Punch helmed by Zack Snyder fresh off Watchmen. She was apparently the unanimous first choice but right now she’s everyone’s first choice, and she is committed to Big Love which shoots at the same time that Sucker Punch is scheduled to begin principle photography. Full Story

A reader called Sabrina wrote to me yesterday suggesting this might be a reason to thaw out my womb – Nicole Richie, on the heels of the success of her jewellery which sold out in pre-order, has announced she’s launching a maternity line… The good news is that it’s not just maternity. Full Story

It’s a documentary chronicling the experiences of 3 women in Mali, Vietnam, and Bosnia-Herzegovina as they work to “overcome barriers to lead day-to-day battles against ignorance, poverty, oppression, and ethnic strife.” Natalie Portman has, for several years now, been actively involved in advocating for rights of disadvantaged women particularly in the third world as the Ambassador of Hope for FINCA with specific focus on pro-active efforts to help communities help themselves escape the cycle of poverty. Full Story

These photos, they kill me. At the Cesar Film Awards in Paris – the French Oscars – Sean Penn as usual looking crusty and bored, especially in the audience. But not when Emma Thompson is around! She makes my life. And the way she looks is the way she is – hilarious, unpretentious, freespirited, the best. Full Story

Where was Cate?

Many of you wrote during awards season – Where’s Cate Blanchett? She is an awards season staple. It was weird not to see her. But she received no nominations. And Brad Pitt alone was enough to promote Benjamin Button is Boring. Besides, Cate had better things to do. As the co-artistic director of the Sydney Theatre Company alongside her husband, Cate stayed home to rehearse. Full Story

Amanda Seyfried has been shooting a new movie in Toronto. She was in LA for the weekend for the Oscars, then had to return immediately Monday back to work. Dominic Cooper went with her. This is Amanda arriving at LAX yesterday. Dominic met her later. An interesting story about their flight. From an infallible source. Full Story

You know I love this bitch…even when she’s an inarticulate stoner on Letterman. Kristen Stewart is totally up her own ass. At 18, she’s an “artist”. And fluff is not her thing. So she says. So she acts. Pretentious?  For sure! Youthful sanctimony? Absolutely! But on the plus side, at least she’s not hanging out with Ebola Hilton. Full Story

Just wanted to point out – Seth Meyers and Ricky Gervais were part of the Oscar writing staff last night. I’m sure Tina also had something to do with the fact that Steve Martin was way funnier presenting an Academy Award than he was hosting Saturday Night Live a few weeks ago. Tina not wearing black or grey. Full Story

My Marion Cotillard arrived today at LAX in advance of the Oscars on Sunday. No makup. Doesn’t matter. F-ck! I was at LAX just a while ago too! Didn’t see her, different terminal. Balls! As the reigning Best Actress, Marion will likely present to the Best Actor – will it be Sean Penn or Mickey Rourke? She already handed over the honours to Mickey at the BAFTAs…but that was before he willingly infected himself with Ebola. Full Story
