Thursday night to kick off Midnight Madness at TIFF – a screening for Jennifer’s Body starring, as you know, Megan Fox as a high school girl and boy murdering demon written by Diablo Cody. Starting with Diablo Cody… I had Diablo Cody fatigue after Juno. If I’m honest though, maybe it wasn’t Diablo Cody fatigue. Full Story

I was in New York last week on 3 junkets – Harry Potter, Bandslam (which was actually much better and funnier than I expected), and G-Force. Was super, super excited about G-Force, though not the part when I had to screen the movie with a theatre full of children hopped up on candy and popcorn, but the part when I looked down at the schedule and saw that Bill Nighy was assigned. Full Story

Let’s start with Bonnie Wright. She’s tiny. Was wearing flats, as was I, and we’re the same height, only she’s thinner, though not unhealthy. Very still, small movements, extremely articulate, quite reserved. Funnily enough, it’s the Weasleys with the low energy, and Harry and Hermione who are much more animated. Full Story

The Dubai Film Festival kicked off today – many stars are expected to make appearances throughout the course of the event and the first to arrive … totally random. Ben and Casey Affleck, not really sure what they’re promoting other than themselves, and too lazy to find out, although if Casey’s willing to talk about Joaquin Phoenix’s rap career, I’m all over it. Full Story

Next for Jennifer Aniston: Shemar Moore??? He says he wants to meet her… and Ellen Degeneres says she’ll hook it up. Brilliant. Brilliant move, Stephen Huvane. Because Shemar Moore is HOT. Like, full on, weak in the knees, butterflies in your stomach, fire in your crotch, crazy f&cking HOT. Full Story

They took to the internets to call Sarah Palin a “narrow minded, media obsessed homophobe” but only after hosting the biggest party in the history of Ultra Supper Club in Toronto. That sh*t was bananas. Some have questioned after all her rehab drama whether or not Lindsay Lohan is still Lindsay Lohan. Full Story

My first Aniston close-up. And twice in one day. Yesterday, Sunday, she came into our eTalk Lounge for a sit-down interview with Ben Mulroney. Without a doubt, it was Jen Day. Her film was not a gala. It screened at a small, little theatre far from the fanfare of Roy Thomson Hall, but her premiere easily eclipsed everyone else’s. Full Story

January 2007 at Sundance. I interviewed James Franco for eTalk as he was at the festival to promote An American Crime. He looked clammy and tired, like cold cuts gone bad in your refrigerator, and stank of a pack of cigarettes smoked in 10 minutes. Full Story

They all have a lot to learn from Dustin Hoffman. I visited Michael Landsberg on Off The Record last week and we were talking about The Love Guru and Mike Myers who had been in town for the junket and Michael told me that he was offered a spot on the schedule for 3 minutes. Three minutes. Michael was like… F&ck that. Full Story

Katy Perry: on Lily, Angie, and John Mayer too!

Katy Perry’s I Kissed a Girl is currently #1 both on iTunes and Billboard Canada and second to only Coldplay on the Billboard Hot 100. Not bad, right? But while the easy assumption is that at 23, Katy’s success came quickly, in reality she’s now with her fourth record label, having been bounced around and rejected for years by the business. Full Story
