Nicole Kidman is supposed to play some kind of hot socialite in Baz Luhrmann’s upcoming epic Australia…so in other words, it’s like the Matrix. A suspension of disbelief. I can do that. A few stills have been released from the film scheduled to premiere in November. Baz is apparently award hunting. Full Story

Granny Freeze in Vogue

Gran on the cover and the in the pages of Vogue, shot before she started showing, not that she’s showing much now. You’ll recall, she announced her pregnancy 30 seconds after Keith Urban fertilised her botoxed eggs. A brave move for someone who’s suffered so many miscarriages. But as they say in the article, Nicole Kidman is fearless. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Well… I didn’t hate it. But I didn’t love it either. Did you see it? Were you out with Carrie and the girls this weekend? Chances are you were. I went with my Main Gay Darren. We loved her studded belt. And the chemistry between the girls. We giggled at the way Charlotte said: but we’re in Mexico. Jason Lewis is f&cking hot. But the amount of makeup Chris Noth was wearing frightened us. I replied to emails on my blackberry three times because it was too bloody long. And either give the mute Chinese baby something to say or do or don’t include her bloody in the scene!

By the way - where the hell was the 5th lady New York City?

Would love to hear your thoughts. Please do share.

As for Darren and I… we must be two old bitches. Because we were more excited about the Mamma Mia trailer than the actual movie. Can’t wait!

Darren and I are also the annoying assholes sitting in front of you who won’t shut up. But only during the previews. Especially during the previews for Baz Lurhmann’s Australia, starring Granny Freeze Nicole Kidman and Hugh Jackman.

Have you had the pleasure? If no, click here.

We played the funnest game ever: Does Her Face Move?

After nearly 45 seconds, during which Granny Nic appeared on screen every other shot, we remarked with delight that it remained frozen. Not even a muscle twitch. But at one point Darren made a momentous discovery. He leaned over and observed wryly:

She blinked.

Of course I lost my sh*t. And more sh*t went missing when Darren followed up by noting that Hugh Jackman was “down-acting” to deflect her handicap, as in intentionally muffling his talent so as to make up for the fact that hers has been immobilised by Botox.

Seriously, you must have a look. It will make your life. And Hugh Jackman really is a dreamboat.

MTV Movie Awards went down Sunday night. Many photos to follow. But it all boils down to this: Johnny Depp. Johnny Depp Forever.

Also the guest list from the GMD’s house party. Oprah and the Scientologists and all turned up. The GMD has powerful friends.  It’s Monday – am in Toronto for a two day blast on assignment for eTalk at the CTV Upfronts. Will be blogging all day between shoots. Check back often.

Yours in gossip,

Hugh Jackman, Ewan McGregor, and Michelle Williams star together in a movie called Deception due out on April 25th. Terrible title. And terrible marketing campaign. Click here for the official site...super cheese and disappointing too, since all three of them deserve better. Full Story

Two loin exploding Canadians are rumoured to have been cast in the upcoming X-Men Origins: Wolverine. First – Ryan Reynolds could be putting his Ken doll beefcake to good use as Deadpool, the sardonic mercenary anti-hero. One of the more popular mutants, if Ryan’s role takes off, he could have his very own titled project. Full Story

Posting earlier today on Gerard Butler elicited quite the response. Now MANY of you are campaigning for his place on the Freebie Five. My friend Lola has been imploring me to see 300. Perhaps afterwards I might be swayed. Until then, feast your eyes on a special gift from Ange who had the pleasure of getting up close and personal with Gerard in Toronto for the film festival in 2005. Full Story

They are shooting a new movie in NYC called The Tourist. By all accounts two of the nicest men in showbiz, both willing to experiment artistically and hopefully beyond, both with a seemingly healthy pespective on fame, both rather campy too in a manly man kinda way…does that make sense? Also - shocker of all shockers! - both adopted with very little fanfare. Full Story


Heads up Toronto… the 5th Annual Booby Ball goes down on September 29th at Maro with all proceeds benefitting Rethink Breast Cancer. These girls threw me a fabulous, fabulous soiree in July at Czehoski, this time they"re rockin" it with an Asian punk theme, so go find your party dress and get your Angelina on - all in the name of healthy tits. Grizzly, Grumpy, and High is not Hugh Jackman who is undoubtedly better at the waltz with a much, much better sense of humour. My love and thanks to Karen and Kirsten from Calgary and a huge apology for being impossibly late in replying to all of your emails. With TIFF madness and travel, I"m weeks behind. Am trying, promise... Fresh column Wednesday night, til then, I am yours in gossip, Lainey PS. Am on eTalk every day this week, Wednesday tune in for more exclusive dish on Renee Z"s bad behaviour. I"m telling you…she"s losing her f&cking mind….


Colin Farrell, Hugh Jackman, Matt Dillon, Jake Gyllenhaal - none of them have received for a favour . You will note they all have a common thread, a thread the receiver does not share. Fresh VMA smut tonight! Til then, I am yours in gossip, Lainey

The Daily Fabulous: Hugh Jackman

Astounding, non? That he can go from loin mashing Wolverine hotness to this and so convincingly? Here is Hugh Jackman reprising his role in the Boy from Oz, wholeheartedly giving himself over to gold and animal print and double jointed wrists. I admire his courage, don"t you? And no, before you ask, I have no idea if he"s gay nor have I heard anything beyond the usual "a friend of a friend who talked to the bellhop at this fancy pants hotel said that this" - barely reliable at best, although the long term wife/adopted children/fashion sense/too close for comfort combination is tempting, isn"t it? Full Story

Remember him? From a riddle I posted on May 1st? About a closeted star getting a little too bold about his boyfriends, long before so many other blind items from other gossip outlets? Well it appears the gay is out of the bag. And it only took this long because for many, many years he kept his true homo hidden and disguised under marriage from a now deceased relative who would not have accepted it. Full Story
