Multiple sightings of Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds being super romantic in Napa at dinner this week. Nothing gross, but like totally engrossed in each other. “Eyes locked” the whole time is how one person described it to me. It was so intense - in a hot sex way - that at one point I’m told when a server came by to ask if they needed something else, Ryan seemed irritated to have been interrupted. Full Story

I LOVE these pictures of Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber at the Laker game last night. Because obviously I’m obsessed with them, but also because of the Photo Assumption you can apply to Selena’s face when a young fan approaches for a photo. Adversaries come in all ages and sizes. Selena and Justin were then asked to kiss for the camera. Full Story

Ryan Gosling arrived in LA late last night in glasses and a hoodie vest over a stretched out t-shirt. Do you think he stretches his t-shirts himself? Because I feel like all of his t-shirts are stretched just so. Just so for that subtle chest dip but curiously not so that they hang over and obscure his biceps. Full Story

Will Arnett hosted the first annual Laughter Is The Best Medicine Gala in support of Toronto East General Hospital last night. I was born at Toronto East General! And my cousin Cat and I worked there for a summer as kitchen staff. They always say hospital food sucks. I put on 10 lbs working there because it didn’t. Full Story

It’s crept up on me slowly, but for the last six weeks or so, I’ve thought that Battleship, the movie based on a boardgame, would surprise people. Sure, it looks big and dumb and loud and it reminds me of Transformers in less-than-flattering ways, but it kind of looks fun. Succeeding in summer is often not so much about quality storytelling or acting but about quality fun. Full Story

Blake & Ryan in the suburbs

Lainey Posted by Lainey at April 12, 2012 20:38:27 April 12, 2012 20:38:27

Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds were just spotted in Connecticut this afternoon, holding hands, walking down Elm Street. Which Elm Street? Does it matter? It’s an Elm Street in the suburbs. And they seem to be spending a lot of time in the suburbs lately, as often as they can get away from the city. They were in CT in December and have been back to visit a couple of different towns since and, well, I feel like these two went from Leonardo DiCaprio into super SERIOUS without pausing at “dating” or “let’s see where this goes”. Full Story
