Cate Blanchett and husband Andrew Upton were spotted today on holiday in Paris with their sons Dashiell, Roman, and Ignatius. They hit up the Louvre, walked around the Tuileries, and I really love that even Cate Blanchett makes her boys pose for photos when they don’t want to because, at this age, they don’t give a sh-t. Full Story

Diane Keaton was in Toronto yesterday and appeared on The Marilyn Denis Show. I can’t find any pap photos of her. And there are several pap agencies represented in Toronto. For some reason, I guess Diane Keaton wasn’t a draw...?Who doesn’t love Diane Keaton? As my friend Michelle noted yesterday, Diane Keaton is universally adored. Full Story

There’s a feature on Susan Sarandon in the new issue of PEOPLE. She talks about aging in Hollywood. You can read most of it here. I like the part where she talks about how there are a lot of guys out there who are attracted to interesting women. Because their mothers raised them to be. Full Story

There are stars, and then there are stars, you know? Even though Emma Stone's had a good few years and a REALLY good 2011, she hasn't had that defining role... yet. The one everyone remembers as equal parts incredible acting and indelibly her. I'm sure she's getting scripts, but she's usually a variation on a Sassy Quirky Truth Teller. Full Story

Adele was the big winner at the BRIT Awards last night. And it doesn’t look like she actually changed her dress from the Grammy Awards. Full Story

She loves her life. That’s obvious. She was so delighted with her producers and the adorable boyfriend who was sort of affably out of the whole thing.  She screeched at her mum in her South London twang, and if you haven’t watched her 60 minutes interview with Anderson you need to get on that, because no two people who are media professionals have spent so much time giggling together on camera. Full Story
