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

Dylan and I were at the Martinez yesterday just before the first carpet at Cannes to cover a women in film panel discussion by the New York Times. When we arrived, Diane Kruger and Joshua Jackson had just come down, ready to head to the carpet. Her dress is actually better in person. It doesn't look so wet and clingy. Full Story

Rachel by day and with her man by night

There's only one carpet at Cannes on opening night. Most nights we see two. I'm also writing from a weird French keyboard in the press room and it's infuriating me. But this is not your concern. This post is about Rachel McAdams and her big Cannes debut. She was the starlet today, for sure. Full Story

It is about f-cking time. What a treat today! New photos of Taylor Kitsch. And hot!This is Taylor at photo shoot in the California desert. Not sure for what publication, but I imagine, given his higher profile these days, with two big budget projects awaiting release (Battleship and John Carter of Mars) and having just booked a leading role in Oliver Stone’s Savages with a high profile cast including Aaron Johnson, Salma Hayek, John Travolta, and Uma Thurman, and oh yeah Blake Lively, Taylor will be appearing in many more magazine spreads ahead. Full Story

Rachel McAdams is expected be on the carpet at the Palais in Cannes tomorrow night to open the film festival with Midnight in Paris. Timed for the occasion is her new cover for ELLE, adorable and fresh in leather pants on the front, and sexy, sultry, and maybe a little suggestively horny on the inside page. Full Story

To his mother’s house. I don’t have keys to my ma’s house either. 37 years old, and she still thinks I’ll sneak home some friends and throw the door open for a raging party. First of all, they don’t even have a liquor cabinet. I actually don’t know many Chinese people who do. Full Story

Keeping it fresh

Not much needs to be said about these shots of Diane Kruger and Joshua Jackson in New York yesterday. They met up on a street corner, they were thrilled to see each other, he kissed her enthusiastically, then they went for lunch and couldn’t stop being f-cking cute. Right? Joshua has just wrapped on Season 3 of Fringe and received some good news early too – the show has been picked up for a full 4th season so it’s another year of employment and a steady paycheque and yes, they have to worry about that too. Full Story

No socks at the Sev

Ryan Gosling hit up a 7-11 in LA today, bleary-eyed in glasses, without any socks. I like him in glasses so much. Who’s she? That, to me, looks like his sister. I bet you, if you were to walk by him in that moment, you would have been able to enjoy his sleep smell. This usually disgusts me. You know, when you pass someone on the street, or in a store, wherever, and you get a waft of their sleep smell. Full Story

Is this your Met Best? Diane Kruger&Joshua Jackson

Have been hearing from many of you over email and Twitter this morning. Almost everyone is into Diane Kruger as styled by Jason Wu. No, it certainly doesn’t suck. But I can’t say it’s my best. Maybe it’s because Jason Wu, while popular and talented and very, very appealing, doesn’t do it for me in the way of pure originality. Full Story
