Gosling took her to the aquarium, then it was Jakey, Justin, and Bradley? Or was it Justin first then Jakey then Bradley? I don’t remember the order. But this girl is taking over from Kate Hudson’s manslinger and enjoying her single summer. And since she’s been linked with almost everyone so far, I suppose it’s only a matter of time before they make a story about her with Ryan Reynolds. Full Story

My friends and I are still all over this Bieber romance. It’s fascinating, like a science experiment. Teenagers are excellent case studies. Anyway, as reported yesterday, Justin Bieber, after their Hawaiin love tour, has taken Selena Gomez back to his hometown Stratford, Ontario. Yesterday they hit up a Swiss Chalet – click here Full Story

If you live outside Canada, and you’ve never been to Canada, you probably don’t know what the f-ck. But Swiss Chalet is one of our iconic chicken houses. But not fried. And you either LOVE it or you HATE it. Especially the Swiss Chalet dipping sauce. Like, I’ve probably had this debate at least 150 times in my life. Full Story

Last October, I posted this article with my nomination for President Snow in the film adaptation of The Hunger Games, Kiefer Sutherland. Today Lionsgate announced that it was indeed a Sutherland who has been cast as the evil autocrat of Panem but... Full Story

Our puppy Barney, now 5 months, tries to sneak up onto our bed every night by jumping on my head. This, evidently, in his mind, qualifies as a stealth entry. This morning, 3:30am, his paw landed hard on my face, nearly took out my eye. My alarm was already set for 4am so there was no point going back to sleep. Full Story

Ryan Gosling & a man’s suit

I learned a lot of about men’s suits yesterday. We’re going to a really swanky wedding tonight and Jacek didn’t have one. He’s not the sharpest dresser, as you know, to begin with. And since he works from home, there’s very little reason for him to dress up. We’ve been talking about getting him a new suit for a while. Full Story

Sean Penn was honoured last night at the Cinema For Peace inaugural Cannes dinner for his work in Haiti. Leonardo DiCaprio made the introduction. And the two were seated beside this year’s Jury President Robert DeNiro. Well that must have been a conversation. OMG! This Boy’s Life! At times Bob and Leo seemed to be deep in conversation. Full Story

Several of you have made requests for this – Sidney Crosby, Jordan Staal, Max Talbot, and Paul Martin of the Pittsburgh Penguins were in Cannes the other day at a party for the short film Trophy Wife starring Jamie Lynn Sigler. Random, right? Conference Finals or the Croisette? I guess partying on a yacht takes the sting away. Full Story

Cory Monteith has some down time now that production on Season 2 of Glee is complete. There's a tour this summer but before that, he's back at home in Vancouver, jamming with his band Bonnie Dune, and hitting up the Canucks game last night, always in Canucks gear, cheering on the home side to a victory in Game 1 of the Western Conference finals. Full Story

It's Friday night in Cannes and I have to get to an SJP event and then there's a party carpet we're waiting for access on and my thumbs are killing me from all this blackberry blogging. I know I still have my interview with Angelina Jolie to deliver and as soon as I get to a proper keyboard, I will put that down. Full Story

For the second night in a row, Rachel McAdams and Michael Sheen walked the carpet in Cannes together as a couple. They are super, super cute together. I like the way he looks at her. Anyway, apparently her figure skating dress from the night before was Marchesa. Of course. Last night though she threw on some pants. Full Story
