You have heard me go on and on about Rachel McAdams’s anti-celebrity ways: she does not live permanently in LA, she maintains a rather ordinary-ish existence in Toronto, she rides her bike, she takes transit, she doesn’t whore herself out at every premiere and party, she doesn’t hit up gifting suites every week, she doesn’t call the paps outside her gym. Full Story

Cory Monteith is currently touring with Glee. He can also soon be seen in theatres with Selena Gomez and Leighton Meester in Monte Carlo. Please don’t make me look up the plot of that movie. I don’t think plots will matter to the people who will see that movie. Anyway, to promote all his current projects, and increase his profile of course, Cory was interviewed by Parade and decided to reveal that he was once a drug addict and went to rehab. Full Story

I know. I’m sorry. I deserved your yelling. It’s just...the articles that require a recounting of personal experience, I need to be super focused for those. And the last few days I’ve been working in studio and there’s so much sh-t happening here, I haven’t been able to escape it. Full Story

I'll take pictures of Ryan Gosling with his dog any time over Ryan Gosling walking down the street in New York all hipstery with an obscure instrument, singing to himself on a sunny afternoon. Agree or disagree? Here he is, flying out of LAX this weekend with his dog George or Ralph. Full Story

Their own breasts. Bradley Cooper and Zoe Saldana continued to work on The Words in Montreal yesterday and, well, frankly, I have never been less attracted to him. Ever. Maybe it’s just a poor choice of shirt. Jacek says the sun isn’t hitting him right either. And his hair, which is usually the sh-t, looks terrible. Full Story

Ryan Reynolds hit up Letterman last night. Looking good. And trim. And not wearing a cardigan – approve. I was complaining about this at the MTV Movie Awards. Also, why are men allowed to get away with beat up shoes and nice clothes? Or is that just famous men? Today Ryan was photographed again leaving his hotel in a waistcoat and really nice forearms with grey pants worn well. Full Story

In Paris last night at the Liaisons au Louvre charity gala dinner. I LOVE her dress SO much. Like, on me I’d just look pregnant, so it’s for that willowy type for sure but still... how about this as a refreshing change of silhouette? I’ve noted before that Diana Kruger often looks “samey” to me. Full Story
