Radiohead played a show in New York on Thursday. There was a lot of jizzing about Ryan Reynolds and Scarlett Johansson being there together and whether or not that means it’s a reconciliation. Am told there is NO reconciliation. They’ve just been able to stay friends, as hard as that is to believe. You know who else was also there Full Story

If you’ve been reading this site for a while, now in its third look!, you know how I feel about Arrested Development. Am still angry that people were too dumb to appreciate its brilliance. For years now, they’ve been teasing us about an Arrested Development reunion/movie/whatever. But while there was always hope, there never seemed to be anything solid. Full Story

She was in London working on Sherlock for a while and spending time with boyfriend Michael Sheen with whom she was seen at a few plays, having dinner, totally easy and casual. So it’s been a year now and they’re still really into each other. Yesterday Rachel arrived in LA. Interesting travel pants. Full Story

You make me Hello Kitty

Hello Kitty as a verb. I work on an entertainment tv show. It’s a half hour. There’s a constant editorial give and take about what we report and what we don’t report. I don’t give a sh-t for example about The Bachelor and those Kardashians. I do understand however that my celebrity preferences don’t represent the general viewer. Full Story

Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes hooked up for a hike on Sunday. A hike is good. I love hiking. The Vancouver kind of hiking. Pretty sure what they’re doing here though isn’t the Vancouver kind of hiking. Or at least not in those shoes. They probably didn’t go far. He has a book in his hand. Full Story

On exes: Ryan is not Brad

Brad Pitt, who is currently selling Moneyball, told Parade Magazine that life with Jennifer Aniston was not interesting and pathetic. Ryan Gosling is also selling a movie (Drive opens today - are you going?) and talking about his exes. His comments though are decidedly sweeter. And very, very MiniVan Majority friendly. Full Story

Toronto was abuzz last night with Gosling sightings at a local bar called the Beaconsfield. They were freaking out about it on Twitter. The only thing is... Ryan Gosling was photographed yesterday afternoon in LA on the set of Gangster Squad. And considering the time difference (he was supposedly there at 11pm ET) and that it takes 5 hours to fly from LA to Toronto, I’m not actually sure it was possible. Full Story

From The Sky Down

You’ll have to excuse the huge Canadian flag plastered all over this article. It’s just... there was a lot of swagger to go around last night at the opening of the 2011 Toronto International Film Festival as Bono and the Edge arrived to screen Davis Guggenheim’s From The Sky Down, a documentary about Achtung Baby, the album that brought the band back from the brink. Full Story

TIFF 2011 officially kicks off today. And, as previously noted, it’ll be pure mayhem at Roy Thompson Hall tomorrow where Brad Pitt (with Angelina Jolie) and George Clooney will attend galas for Moneyball and The Ides of March respectively.  Read Full Intro
