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

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

You’ve probably seen these - Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes loving each other where dreams come true. I said the other day that there was affection and backtouching. Turns out there was also handholding and kissing. So it’s happening. They’re happening. I want it to happen naked on video on my computer. Full Story

Exclusive I posted an article on August 19 - click here for a refresher - that included photos of Ryan Gosling on set with Eva Mendes, positing that they seemed so hot together, I’d totally be down if they hooked up. Mickey Mouse was listening. Full Story

Leaving Chateau Marmont last night. Yesterday I posted photos of Ryan leaving a 7 Eleven with one track pant leg hitched up wondering if it was by accident or on purpose. Click here if you missed it. The emails I received in response were amazing, especially from those who love him. Full Story

Did you see A History of Violence? How about Eastern Promises? Good things happen when David Cronenberg and Viggo Mortensen make movies together. This time it’s A Dangerous Method. The photo call happened in Venice earlier today. Cronenberg was joined by his cast. Because of the time difference, the premiere photos will likely hit the agencies in the next couple of hours. Full Story

Puppy Love takes second place

If Beyonce didn’t sh-t on everyone with her baby, my favourite part of last night’s MTV MVAs would have easily been Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber. Did you see their pre-show interview? Please. He was talking to her about his pee pee. So f-cking cute. Look at his face looking at her face when he says “Johnson”. Full Story
