Monday Morning Jackson

This is for CJ. And all the rest who email me daily saying enough of Robert Pattinson, what about Jackson Rathbone? Indeed. But Jackson is harder to find. Which is why we should get started this Monday morning by sipping on some of his sexy. This is Jackson in New York at the WordTheatre Pushcart Press benefit reading from prize-winning story "The Bank Robbery" by Steve Schutzman. Full Story

James bails

He was supposed to speak at the UCLA College of Letters and Science commencement ceremony on June 12. Remember when it was originally announced, some of the students got all pissy pants and started a petition trying to have him removed because they felt ripped off – what words of wisdom could James Franco possibly pass on? It’s no longer a sticking point. Full Story

His #1 and my #1

Natalie Portman tops my husband’s Freebie 5. James Franco is #1 for me. And now the two of them will star in a movie together called Your Highness. In a weird, twisted, imaginary, not at all realistic way, it’s like we brought them together. And if they are together, if they get together (can you imagine?) it would be like we’re together with them. Full Story

My #1, Mark Darcy, and the Shamef-ck

Have no idea what value Ed Westwick would have added to the White House Correspondents’ dinner. Well, actually, he seems like he’d be a great table conversationalist. More interesting at least than the insufferably sanctimonious Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore. Or Chace Crawford’s bangs. Full Story

Best Date Ever

Are we there yet? How about now? The wait is too long! Tina Fey and Steve Carell starring together in a comedy called Date Night. Please. That alone would be enough. But add Leighton Meester to the mix to bring some Blair Waldorf flavour, and a touch of the impossibly adorable Taraji P Henson, fresh off her Oscar nomination, and now… Marky Mark and my #1 James Franco have just confirmed Full Story

Playing Ginsberg reading Kafka

My #1 today in New York on the set of Howl in full costume clutching a Kafka – prop or personal? Ritchie recently sent me a link to James Franco’s Criterion Collection Top 10. For those unfamiliar with the Criterion Collection, it’s like limited edition DVDs with the best, best, BEST special features. Full Story

Franco fake gut?

James Franco yesterday – first look at him playing Allen Ginsberg on the set of Howl. James is normally pretty lean. From the side there he looks much thicker. Fake? Howl will focus on the younger Ginsberg, obviously, during the course of the poet’s obscenity trial over the poem that has since become one the defining works of the Beat Generation. Full Story

Supporting Spirits

Best Supporting Actor and Actress at the Independent Spirit Awards happening right now in Santa Monica: James Franco for Milk and Penelope Cruz for Vicky Christina Barcelona. Yes! Here’s James during arrivals – not sure who he’s with. Does he have a girl? Is she his girl? If so, am sad. Full Story

I love you James Franco

The way he and Sean Penn meet at the beginning of Milk is the cutest, sexiest scene ever and left me tingling for the rest of the two hours, which quickly turned to bitterness now remembering how Laura would not let me sit on his lap at Sundance 2 years ago when he invited me onto it Full Story

Milk!

Winona Ryder at the Milk premiere last night LA. An old favourite. Secret I still hope she finds Joaquin Phoenix. Also – Sean and Robin Wright Penn looking happier than ever. And James Franco there to support his film too. In the wake of Prop 8 and the recent protests and demonstrations against it, there’s no better time for Milk. Full Story

Weed Lips

Lainey Posted by Lainey at September 29, 2008 08:31:00 September 29, 2008 08:31:00

It’s not just liquor that loosens the lips. If you’re lucky enough to not react with vomit to pot, perhaps you can weigh in: does weed make you chatty? Apparently it makes James Franco chatty. In an interview with Out Magazine about his new film Milk with Sean Penn, in which they play gay lovers, James may have revealed a little too much about the ultra private Sean and Madonna: "After our [on-screen] kiss, Sean texted Madonna - his ex-wife, Madonna - and said, 'I just popped my cherry kissing a guy. Full Story
