Are you going to deny that you didn’t notice his hand on her thigh while he’s taking a picture of her? Fine. I’ll admit it for all of us. Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez have been in Mexico together the last few days. They were photographed yesterday admiring each other in the sun. Allow me please to appreciate the relative modesty of her bikini, if there is such a thing. Full Story

The hold has finally been released on those Blake Lively/Ryan Reynolds photos but I could only get 6 because they are MEGA expensive. With this in mind, I hope I’ve picked the best ones for you to enjoy. There’s a LOT going on here. Blake continues to ball the sh-t out of the famewhore game.How did she DO that?Throughout Ryan Reynolds’s marriage to Scarlett Johansson, they were photographed together maybe 3 times, maybe, and never all that intimately. Full Story

I briefly mentioned this the other day in the article about Emma Stone - click here if you missed it. Duana and I have discussed this a few times lately: Emma Stone is what Rachel McAdams was from 2004-2007. The Wall Street Journal had a lengthy piece on how Rachel was the most sought-after, the most talked-about, the most promising actress. Full Story

Taylor’s movie wasn’t made for me

You know I LOVE Taylor Kitsch. You know I want very badly for Taylor Kitsch to have a huge movie star career. Yes, because he’s hot, and of course, because he’s Riggins, but mostly because I’ve met him several times and he’s really, really nice. He deserves it. But...John Carter, it’s not for me. As I posted the other day, Taylor was making the talk show rounds - click here Full Story

You know when you build something up so hard you doom it from the start because it can never possibly live up to your expectations? And then Mimi comes along and always lives up to your expectations? This video with Justin Bieber...It’s the greatest 4 minutes of my life. It’s the greatest 4 minutes of your life. Full Story

There are NEVER any pictures of Taylor Kitsch!So it was a surprise just now when I came back from a meeting to check the photo agencies and ... he was on Good Morning America! How many sentences can end with an exclamation point in this article??!Not really sure what he’s promoting. Probably John Carter though it seems early being 4 months away. Full Story

I want to be able to say that one day to Jacek:Pick me up in Paris. Sounds a lot better than “pick me up at the corner of Broadway and Granville”. Eva Mendes has been shooting a movie in Paris. Ryan Gosling came to see her for the weekend. They did some sightseeing. Walked through Pere Lachaise Cemetery. Full Story

Maybe the second half of the year

Lainey Posted by Lainey at November 24, 2011 19:01:48 November 24, 2011 19:01:48

Taylor Kitsch has 3 films due out in 2012. In March it’s John Carter. In the summer it’s Battleship. In the fall, it’ll be Oliver Stone’s Savages. I love Taylor Kitsch. And I want so badly for him to become a big star. But I think it’ll be the second half of 2012 that’s promising than the first. Because from what we’ve seen of his two major blockbusters. Full Story

It’s Thanksgiving in America tomorrow and, as Sarah told me, the start of a four day weekend. Before you all go off and enjoy your football, turkey, and Black Friday, here’s Nathan Fillion on Good Morning America on Monday. Get a lot of requests for Nathan (hi Mary!) but photographers are always too preoccupied with housewives and Pippa Middleton. Full Story

Another problem with the American Music Awards last night? Um, totally not enough Justin and Selena. What’s the fixation? As Sasha wrote to me over bbm last night - it’s like we’ve been invited along on their prom date, ok? And the theme at the AMAs was The Great Gatsby.I’m 16 years old, I love high school movies, especially if there’s dancing, and right now I am looking at him looking at her and It’s. Full Story

Early yesterday, it was reported that Mariah Yeater, the woman who claims Justin Bieber made her baby, had dropped her paternity suit and was dumped by her lawyers. By midday, her new lawyer, who looks like he sells used cars, insisted that Mariah is still pursuing the matter, only they’re doing it out of court, with confidential DNA testing and confidentiality agreements . Full Story
