Congratulations to all of us! We wake this morning to new pictures of Taylor Kitsch. And there are never any new pictures of Taylor Kitsch. But Taylor Kitsch’s John Carter opens in 6 weeks. Heavy promotion is ahead although today he was promoting another movie at a press conference in Japan for Battleship (which seems early). Full Story

Scabby Pammy has been in Vancouver the last few days; it hasn’t exactly been a quiet trip home. Here she is with former football player Mitch Berger and his big ass Super Bowl ring. They spent most of the day at his apartment yesterday. At around 11am, he picked up a few bottles of wine and some strawberries. Full Story

They were in New Orleans this weekend. Amazingly, a photographer managed to find them. This time though, not with StarTraks agency but that doesn’t change the fact that Ryan Reynolds, in his short time with Blake Lively, has been papped more than he ever was en couple than when he was married to Scarlett Johansson. Full Story

Rachel McAdams and Channing Tatum were both in London today to promote The Vow, opening February 10. She looks delicious, right? Love the nude and black heels, how they look against her bare leg. And that dress. And the coat. And, of course, her face. Such a bright, sweet face. Rachel McAdams is irresistible. Full Story

Look, I have a lot of love for Nina Dobrev. Yes, because she’s Canadian but also because she’s fiercely Canadian, meaning she hasn’t forgotten, like so many of them do. Etalk has been with Nina from the beginning of her career. Now she’s the star of a big hit U.S. TV show and when we see her at events, she still always stops for us, and not only that, but remembers the names of all our camera guys and all our producers. Full Story

With him and all the Disneylanding, you never want to be premature about the girlfriend declarations. But it’s almost 6 months now. SIX MONTHS. Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes have been dealing with each other exclusively for 6 months. Dude, that’s a girlfriend. As Dylan would say, that’s a bonafide. Eva is his bonafide. Full Story

I mean on paper for him it’s been a great year: three movies, several more to come, major acclaim, a new meme every week, the actor onto which every thinking woman can project all her mate ideals. On the contrary, I think I have Ryan Gosling fatigue. Oh but we are hard to please. I want to go back to the time when I didn’t know that Ryan Gosling takes his girls to Disneyland. Full Story

As I first reported last week - click here for a refresher - Blake Lively accompanied Ryan Reynolds home to Vancouver to spend time with his family and I wondered whether or not she’d be able to engineer a photo opportunity with her favourite photo agency while she was in town. Full Story

Ryan Reynolds has brought Blake Lively home to Vancouver for the pre-holidays. On Monday the two were out for sushi with his family. Am told the two seemed very comfortable together. She smiled a lot. He looked relaxed and happy. No awkwardness from/with his parents. They also went out for cupcakes. Then yesterday they were seen shopping all over the west side. Full Story

It was the strongest Saturday Night Live this season with Jimmy Fallon hosting. Tina! Amy! Tracy’s signature Christmas move! And the ice skating at the end. WILL ARNETT WAS THERE! So much happiness! My favourite sketch was Beethoven, although it may have been a minute too long. And how smart was the one about the off-Broadway show? (Did anyone else wonder why the wicked smaht Tim Tebow sketch didn’t come earlier? In place of the one with Kristen Wiig trying to take over the party? It made sense later during the farewell for logistics. Full Story
