Dylan’s over in Cannes shooting footage for etalk with our host Tanya Kim. They’ve been sending back some great shots and interviews that will air on the show all week, including some inadvertent (?) gossip I thought you might enjoy. I suppose it’s all in the interpretation. So last night we aired our interview with Atom Egoyan who directed Ryan Reynolds in The Captive. Full Story
Leonardo DiCaprio has no official reason to be in Cannes. Actually that’s not true. His official reason for being in Cannes is To Party. Always. Because it never gets old for him. Year after year, the yachts, the cheesy Euro clubs, the dance beats, the spraying of champagne all over model tits, this never gets old. Full Story

As expected, Blake Lively accompanied husband to the Cannes premiere of The Captive on Friday night. When I saw her dress, what popped into my head was... Grace Of Monaco, the opening night film, starring Nicole Kidman. Blake was there too. She wore brown-ish wine-colour Gucci. Boring. But can you imagine if she'd chosen this one? I would have liked to see the look on Granny Freeze's face. Full Story
There are a lot of Canadians representing at Cannes this year. Ryan Reynolds arrived in Cannes today in advance of the premiere of The Captive, directed by another Canadian, Atom Egoyan. As you know, Reynolds’s wife, Blake Lively, has already been at the festival for a couple of days and walked the carpet at the opening gala last night in her role as ambassador for L’Oreal.

Lower! Justin Bieber went horseback riding yesterday. He had to take his shirt off. Then, when he dismounted, he had to make sure his pants weren’t hitched up too high. High meaning normal, like, hip level. Hip level is too high. The pants must be low enough to see pube. Full Story

You can’t imagine how much joy I’m taking in putting these two in the same article… Blake Lively has arrived in Cannes likely for her role as L’Oreal ambassador but her husband, Ryan Reynolds, has a film in the festival from director Atom Egoyan called The Captive that’s screening in competition.

Justin Bieber took his ma to the Clippers game for Mother’s Day yesterday. Apparently they booed him when he moved to kiss her. It didn’t deter him. He gave one of his best performances in a long time. And by best, I mean that he was the least annoying that he’s been in a long time. Full Story

Please note, Rachel McAdams is not kissing Ryan Gosling. Please note, they have not gotten back together. I stress this because there was some bullsh-t that was reported a couple of months ago when people thought Gosling and Eva Mendes broke up. They did not. But you keep wishing for it. And it’s time to let that die. Full Story
It’s Jann Arden’s new album, released today. I’ve had the honour of working with Jann the last few weeks and knowing her the last few months on The Social. There never was a more generous, honest, crazy kind, and hilarious artist…friend…person.
Jann actually IS Everything. Just Everything.
She will never, ever make you feel sh-tty or regretful for supporting her. She will never let you down. Too often entertainers let us down. Jann’s one of the very, very few who you’ll stay in love with, like, forever. You will love her the most. And she’ll never make you change your mind. The new song is below.
Yours in gossip,
The June issue of FLARE will be available on NextIssue on May 3 and newsstands May 12. The cover? Ellen Page! And her abs. She’s expressing herself. And I’m expressing that I’m obsessed with her. This cover is THE BEST. “Loving ladies and living proud” There couldn’t be a better cover, right? No, there really couldn’t. Full Story

Taylor Kitsch was in Dallas last night to watch the Stars even up their playoff series against the Anaheim Ducks who were playing without Ryan Getzlaf. Kitsch is Canadian. He’s obviously a hockey fan. Why Dallas? My presumption: Friday Night Lights. Filmed in Austin. And he has a home there. Full Story
