Dear Gossips,

Only been the first weekend in Cannes and a permanent hangover already. Every evening begins at midnight and ends well after dawn…

But last night was the best. Last night was the U2 mini-concert on the steps of the Palais – Bono and the Boys live, blaring out onto the street…kicks Britney’s tragic lipsync up the arse. Can she sing??? At all???

Sorry…I digress. How insulting to U2 to have to be interrupted, especially by her.

So it was the premiere of the band’s concert doc called u2 3D, hugest crowd yet gathered outside at 1am and hitting up the bars afterwards.

Then it was over to the Hotel du Cap for the Vanity Fair party which is where my Leo held court in low key fashion with Jude Law’s new wingman James Blunt who, for reasons that have escaped me, can’t seem to keep the girls off his jock. Ew. And Mischa Barton was there too, having just signed on to the upcoming St Trinian’s alongside Colin Firth, Emily Watson, and Rupert Everett ….WTF?

No ….seriously ….among people who can actually act, how the hell is she going to keep up?

Five days down and many more to come – Cannes really heats up this week with everyone on pins and needles for the arrival of George Clooney and the Oceans crew. A Mighty Heart screens for the press Monday as well – will be heading there and then the press conference immediately afterwards…keep you posted.

Don’t forget to scroll down, catch up on articles you may have missed. I updated on Saturday as well.

Petra Nemcova – infected by association?

Petra Nemcova was apparently grinding up on Greek Stav the other night in NYC … and going by the law of Six Degrees of Sex Association, that would mean that she is only one step removed from Paris Hilton… Now in spite of the fact that Stav was tappin’ that Black Hole Vagina for the better part of a year, you have to admit, he’s a helluva lot better looking than James Blunt and his clammy large teeth. Full Story

A tip sent in from Laineygossip readers late late on Monday night after celebrating at Winstons – James Franco was there and according to our observer, though friendly, he seemed immune to every babe in the place and focused his attention entirely on none other than Rumer Willis. Seemed to know each other a while, both chain smoked the whole time, they left together out the back door and was described to be “all over her”. Full Story

Kate in Love

The beach photos were indeed on mark – she looks a LOT better. And Kate Bosworth looks happy. But first…about the posing. Have to tell you, she had me riveted for a while on the middle landing. As her boyfriend James Rousseau waited patiently in the wings, she stood for photographs with her legs crossed. Full Story

Bet your boob job and a side of lipo Leslie Sloane Zelnick is behind this and why not? How better to repair an image than with a tight ass and rapidly toned quads? Look closely gossips… every inch of Britney is getting super tight – have to admit it’s a little inspiration for my post-ciggie chubb. Full Story

My Kiki: Multicolour and Neutral

Am swooning. Kiki in Rome for the Spidey 3 premiere last night in a print dress with the most gorgeous hem and an even better pair of black satin shoes (there’s a bow on the toe) and neutral today in Madrid at the photocall, wearing textured tights and … sigh… an even more killer pair. Full Story

Lovely that Kate Bosworth looks healthier. Always a good thing. But why? Why does she insist on dating boys who are just so… Limp??? His name is James Rousseau. He is a model. It’s been a while. And you tell me. You take a look at these photos, particularly the one where she’s stroking his cheek, and you tell me whether or not this man is capable of crushing your headboard. Full Story

Kiki Brings it, Franco too

Wearing black at the Spidey press conference in Japan – the skirt, the simplicity, my Kiki looks divine, non? Here’s Kiki with what looks to be the full cast of Spiderman 3. Sam Raimi and Tobey look related, don’t they? As for James Franco…OK so he needs a nap and a shower. And I’m not sure why his pants are so tight. Full Story

Well now here’s a healthy combination: Lindsay Lohan who went clubbing fresh outta rehab…and Robbie Williams who also went clubbing fresh out of rehab - it’s really so right it couldn’t be more right, non? Last night at the premiere of The Tudors, pinned pupils everywhere, and that outfit sucks large ass. Full Story

Jake G: real life breast play

Love this story. So Anne Hathaway gave an interview recently about love scenes, comparing her experience working with James McAvoy in Becoming Jane to that with Jake Gyllenhaal in Brokeback Mountain. With James it was like closed mouth only, as realistic as it gets without intimate knowledge of tongue and tonsils. Full Story

Dear Gossips,


Just back from full day rehearsal outside the Kodak theatre on the red carpet and the balcony. I have to admit…it was pretty trippy. And I’m not ashamed to tell you that we all just HAD to have our photos taken with a few Oscar statues. What’s access if you don’t take advantage, right?

Anyway, about the carpet – everyone is running through tech preparations right now. The Academy is doing sound checks and the best…the BEST was Andre Leon Talley.



Never took his shades off. Dressed in a designer toque and scarf, a huge coat with electric blue lining, basketball shorts – yes, basketball shorts!!! - sports socks pulled up to his knees, and trainers! I nearly lost my sh-t. Would Anna Wintour approve???

He was sitting on his very own director’s chair and get this – he had his initials ALT embroidered in the back of the seat.

Love, love, love.

Anyway, our carpet position is fantastic and our balcony position is even better. eTalk host Tanya Kim and I overlook ATL’s spot and we see the arrivals immediately following the photo area, right before they go into the theatre, in the spot where the stars usually congregate and powwow before entry – in other words, where they let their guards down a little.

Wonky eye on full smut alert.

Especially now that even more presenters have been announced including Gael Garcia Bernal, Emily Blunt, Al Gore, and that sexy beast James McAvoy.

Don’t forget, catch the live pre-show on CTV in Canada and on CTV Broadband via ctv.ca – international readers can access the entire broadcast via ctv.ca as well!

As for Ryan Gosling … more on that below.

Oscars in one day! Britney’s still in rehab (at press time).
