TIFF just made its first lineup for this year’s festival. Jean-Marc Vallee’s Demolition, starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Naomi Watts, is the opening night gala. Jake, as you know, could be a contender for his performance in Southpaw. His Southpaw co-star, Rachel McAdams, will be at TIFF too. Full Story

At this point, True Detective S2 is a proper hate-watch. That f-cking dialogue. I set my Sunday nights at 9PM to the show, while my mask is drying, as a challenge to not move my face and f-ck up the work that the serum is supposedly doing to shrink my pores. Every time Rachel McAdams comes on, it’s a relief. Full Story

The Emmy Nominations can usually be a little predictable.  Until they’re not. There is only one headline here:  TATIANA MASLANY nominated for an Emmy for her portrayal of EVERYONE in Orphan Black. Amy Schumer (also nominated) was so happy about it she tweeted at her with the hashtag #notsnubbed. Full Story

Rachel McAdams and Jake Gyllenhaal presented at the ESPYs, though not together. She was paired on stage with Kiefer Sutherland. The internet, it seems, wants her to be paired with Jakey in real life. They do look cute as f-ck together, don’t they? Here’s how it went down before the show. Full Story

Rachel McAdams was in LA yesterday at a SAG event with Jake Gyllenhaal promoting Southpaw. That used to be the Gossip Genie, right? And now you're all about Rachel and Taylor Kitsch? I feel like only people who've watched FNL are into her with Taylor Kitsch. This is a growing number but still not a big enough number. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Serena Williams defeated Maria Sharapova in straight sets yesterday at Wimbledon to get to the finals. You know what I don’t appreciate? Because I’m so superstitious? People are already handing her the win. Don’t call a shutout before the shutout, right? Stop this now.  Read Full Intro

It’s so much fun to watch movie stars be movie stars. It’s electric. That’s the best way to describe what it felt like at the Southpaw premiere in Toronto last night with Rachel McAdams and Jake Gyllenhaal. The biggest takeaway? Not only is the movie great, but after seeing them together in person… it’s clear their chemistry is real. Full Story

Rachel McAdams for Strange

Marvel’s Doctor Strange is slated to begin production late this year, but so far the movie is operating on a relatively low key. This is Kevin Feige’s pet project, with extra scrutiny on its security as they go about casting, so take this with a grain of salt, but the latest rumor is that Rachel McAdams has been offered the female lead opposite Benedict Cumberbatch. Full Story

Gigi Hadid’s moment

On Saturday night Drake was in Atlanta, partying in yellow with Kanye West, 2Chainz, Future, and several other rappers (not all are included in these shots). Then he flew home to Toronto to surprise his friend P Reign at the MMVAs. But there may have been another motivation? Drake wasn’t planning on staying long after his appearance at the show. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Drake showed up at the Much Music Video Awards last night in Toronto, hosted by Ed Sheeran. It was a surprise. He was there to honour and celebrate his boy P Reign who really didn’t expect Drake to show, as he said afterwards that:

“I honestly didn’t know (he’d be here). He doesn’t make a lot of things I ask him to be at, so let’s just put that out there. I thought there was no way in hell.”

I mean his outfit alone would suggest it; Duana’s probably already bought that “6” hoodie online. She LOVES Drake. And she LOVES Toronto. Another reason P Reign was probably genuinely shocked - Drake was in Atlanta performing the night before coming home. And, you know, he could have just flown back to LA for another party in the foam pool. As I mentioned last week in Smutty Tingles, that was the moment I realised I’ve never lived. It’s not just being invited to one, it’s being invited to one at the age where you should be invited to one.

By the way, at one point, while on stage, a propos of nothing, Drake shouted out Gigi Hadid, the model of the moment:

“Gigi Hadid you’re a sweetie pie tonight”

They’ve been friends for a while. She’s only just 20 now. Like he would have known her from when she was just 16 or 17 years old. Right now, Gigi is dealing with Joe Jonas. Which would mean it’s the perfect big brother moment for Drake to be like…um… are you sure? PS. Last names should be emblazoned across the back of every item of clothing.

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

Allison & Ellen back together

Allison Janney and Ellen Page are back together, seen here yesterday on the set of Tallulah in New York. Coincidentally, it’s another movie about a baby. The baby’s mother is evidently a f-ck up. So Ellen rescues her and pretends she’s the mother instead, helped by her boyfriend’s mother, presumably played by Allison. Full Story
