Ryan Gosling cracked a smile yesterday on the set of The Nice Guys in Atlanta. He’s shooting the movie with Russell Crowe, seen here earlier in the week, looking as he always does – no nonsense. I’ve interviewed Crowe and he was lovely – at least to me – but I was terrified. Full Story

I thought it was a pretty strong Saturday Night Live this weekend hosted by Jim Carrey. The sketches were weird if they weren’t funny, with a kind of random silliness that I found really…appealing. And his Matthew McConaughey accent is RIGHT ON. The fact that it was a 3 part series, with Jim getting increasingly ridiculous with his Just Keep Living rambling, made it even better. Full Story

Joshua Jackson and Taylor Kitsch were at the GQ Gentleman’s Ball in New York last night. I’m not wrong in saying that you’re into the Pacey+Riggins combination, right? I’m not the only one, right? Or is it because both have Vancouver roots and so do I? Whatever. I’m forcing you to look at it even if you don’t care. Full Story

Seems like it, non? That we’re seeing a lot of Blake Lively lately. Oh. And have you heard? She’s pregnant. Here she is with Ryan Reynolds last night at the Angel Ball in New York doing a great job of not belly-cupping. It’s about as intimate as they’ve ever been however on a red carpet because, oh, haven’t you heard? She’s pregnant. Full Story

Ryan Reynolds was also honoured at Canada’s Walk of Fame on Saturday in Toronto. His mother was with him at the ceremony. I quite like the blue shirt and the bow tie. Very handsome. Everyone was wondering whether or not Blake Lively would accompany him to the event. She did not. She stayed back in New York and was papped a few times, out shopping and hanging out with Amber Tamblyn. Full Story

Rachel McAdams was in Toronto on Saturday for Canada’s Walk of Fame event. She wore black and white for the awards and then red inside at the dinner. And she had several members of her family there with her, that’s how exciting the honour was for all of them, not only because of course she’s Canadian, but because it was happening in her own city. Full Story

Blake Lively was posing real hard at the Golden Heart Awards last night in New York. It was her first carpet since she announced her pregnancy. And it’s her first carpet since Gawker sh-t on her for the Allure of the Antebellum. Click here for a refresher. Full Story

Keanu Reeves was in New York for the premiere of John Wick on Monday night, the same day he was on Reddit for an AMA. I wasn’t paying attention the last time he did an AMA but there’s a quirk. A Keanu Reeves quirk: he answers a lot of questions with “today”. Example: how do you like your eggs? Today, I like my eggs over-easy. Full Story

Blake Lively and her artisanal fetus (thank you Michael K at Dlisted) are all over Preserve right now – first, with the announcement and now with Bringing Up Baby, a post all about… huh? I know that not everyone can be Grace Coddington and tell a fantastical visual story, but if this is all about Bringing Up Baby Full Story

You have to scroll down that link to see the shots in question but Rachel McAdams is in a couple of them even though she’s not in the movie. Full Story

Variety reported today that Rachel McAdams is very close to signing on to True Detective season 2. Her name came up after Elisabeth Moss was rumoured, and then they apparently ended up auditioning several other actors because of a scheduling conflict; she’s also working on a film called Spotlight and they had to negotiate so that she could take on True Detective without giving that up. Full Story
