Ryan Gosling presented his film, Lost River, at SXSW this weekend. First, a conversation moderated by his friend, the director Guillermo del Toro. The two are apparently quite close. Throughout the discussion, even though the film was not well received in Cannes, del Toro repeated several times how much he admired Gosling’s work, going out of his way to make sure people knew that he thinks the film is good. Full Story

Pamela Anderson stepped out last night in LA at the premiere of The Gunman, escorted by her son Brandon. Pam recently filed for divorce from Rick Salomon and has resisted the urge to get back together with him. So far. It’s been a month. Good. Look at the difference in her. This hair… I LOVE THIS HAIR. Full Story

Finally. A legitimate challenger to McGosling, Rachel and Ryan! People kept asking Genie Bouchard about Justin Bieber during her breakthrough year. Sh-t, even I asked her about it. Because when she was, like, 18 or something, she mentioned somewhere that she had a crush on him. And they’re both Canadian. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Have you seen those throwback Ryan Gosling dance videos yet? The Internet seems to be losing its mind over them. Because it’s Ryan Gosling, the human hug pillow. To his credit, he had a great response:   Obviously I peaked early.  Read Full Intro

Ryan Reynolds on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. I’m not totally sure what he’s promoting. But he’s a great talk show guest. Good energy, quippy, fun, and he’s hilarious during Egg Roulette, which might be the best game Fallon has on his list. And it’s already a really strong list. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

One week after winning Oscar, Julianne Moore showed up at the Canadian Screen Awards last night in Toronto. She was nominated for her role in David Cronenberg’s Maps To The Stars. And lost to Anne Dorval for her performance in Xavier Dolan’s Mommy.  Read Full Intro

I love Sarah Gadon. So I’m gushing here: If Hollywood were a stock exchange, you want to buy shares in Sarah Gadon… and fast. Much like Tatiana Maslany, Sarah won big at the Canadian Screen Awards too — but she didn’t take home a trophy. In fact, she wasn’t nominated this year, even though five of her Maps to the Stars co-stars were, including Robert Pattinson and Julianne Moore. Full Story

Could just be pen. Temporary writing. But given the direction the letters are facing, I’ll guess permanent until we hear otherwise. Because it would be easier for a tattoo artist to write the letters facing themselves than have to come behind you, or get you to twist your hand around, to write the letters facing you. Full Story

New issue of FLARE features Tatiana Maslany on the cover. But because it’s Tatiana and Tatiana has the range, there are actually 3 covers – see attached below. My favourite is #PunkPerfection, that Joan Jett shag looks so good on her. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

For the last few years, Ellen DeGeneres has been doing this bit on her show where she puts an earpiece on a celebrity and gets them to say whatever she orders them to say to unsuspecting civilians. David Beckham’s done it.  Read Full Intro
