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

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

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.

But the kid is not his sonI have always loved the way Michael delivered it: “Just remember to always think twice”.  He sang it like a warning. A seductive warning. Like, they decided in the studio that a lyric from a song should be performed with as much deliberation as a line from a play. Does that happen anymore?No matter. Full Story
