Rachel McAdams, Colin Farrell, and Taylor Kitsch were photographed in LA shooting True Detective season 2 yesterday. It seems like they were shooting some kind of armed standoff.

There’s a restaurant called The Nice Guy in LA. And Ryan Gosling is shooting a movie called The Nice Guys. So for a minute there I was like…OMG? No. She went there for dinner with an unidentified dude who is demonstrably NOT anyone we know. And the paps are calling him a “mystery man”. Full Story

Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes stepped out together this weekend to see Don Rickles perform in Beverly Hills. We’ve not seen them papped together as a couple in a long time. So, despite rumours every 2 months, he’s still with her and she’s still with him. And I love that he decided to kick it on their night out, a break from the baby, in a pair of white shoes. Full Story
