I had it bad for Josh Hartnett for a while. It was after seeing 40 Days And 40 Nights. Why didn’t Shannyn Sossamon become a bigger deal? She has a PERFECT face. God I wanted to look like her. I think I still want to look like her. I certainly wanted to be her. Back to back makeout work opportunities with Heath Ledger and Josh Hartnett? Come on. Full Story

Mischa Barton is in a strange spot career-wise. She’s not old enough to be “forgotten” but she’s not relevant enough to come up as a casting choice. Basically her trade is horror movies and traveling theatre productions. I wondered why she hadn’t tried a CW show but in fact she has, in 2012. Full Story

All this Zayn Malik One Direction drama is making me think a lot about Spice Girls and Take That. Oh look. Here are new pictures of Robbie Williams performing in Paris this week. As I wrote the other day, after Ritchie reminded me, Robbie's breakup from Take That was a major crisis moment for fans. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Last week it was Vogue that turned 25 years old. And very, very soon? It’s almost 25 years to the day that Mimi shot the video for Vision Of Love. The song was then released a month later, in May. You shrug. But do you know the influence of Vision Of Love? Vision Of Love inspired an entire generation of singers and wannabe singers.  Read Full Intro

Uhhhhh… There’s a feature in the April issue of VOGUE: Meet Hollywood’s New Brat Pack. Before we talk about the new Brat Pack, can we review the ORIGINAL 80s Brat Pack? Emilio Estevez, Rob Lowe, Judd Nelson, Demi Moore, Molly Ringwald, Andrew McCarthy, Anthony Michael Hall, Ally Sheedy… And they HATED the label at the time. Full Story

Iain, my friend and (unofficial) Madonna archivist, reminded me this morning… It’s the 25th anniversary of Madonna’s Vogue. 25 years ago today, Madonna released one of her most iconic songs. It’s a long list of iconic songs. But if you’re making a list of iconic Madonna songs, there’s NO argument about this one. Full Story

Well colour me happy… Pretty Woman is 25 years old! DUANAAAAAA!!! I didn’t even bother writing to her about this article because I knew we were going to fight over it, because we always fight over Julia Roberts, and I didn’t want her to have it. Look. It’s not a movie you’re supposed to approve of anymore; it’s just so wrong, the idea of it is just so wrong…OK, OK. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

“You know, you look a lot better without all that black sh-t under your eyes.” Did she? Then, maybe. But now? By today’s standards, at least to me, Ally Sheedy totally looked better in The Breakfast Club BEFORE Claire gave her the hairband makeover.  Read Full Intro

This must be how some people feel about Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt. It was certainly how I felt about Brad Pitt and Gwyneth Paltrow. That I could never see him with anyone else…until Angelina Jolie happened. And now, with Brange, there is no other combination. Which is kinda how I feel about Lisa Bonet and Lenny Kravitz who stepped out together in Hollywood the other day. Full Story

Not even the Associated Press could resist this one. Because they're the ones giving us a gossip tease from the Oscars. According to the AP, during one of the commercial breaks on Sunday at the Oscars, Ben Affleck approached JLO and whispered in her ear. Whatever he said made her laugh, and then she "playfully" smacked him in the arm. Full Story
