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

Previously, Elena/Katherine were doppelgangers, the curse was actually on Klaus because he’s a werewolf/doppelganger hybrid, Jenna found out everything, Klaus came back to life, Elijah can save Elena from dying, Damon’s unimpressed. Full Story

Please look at where Emma Stone is positioned. This is where I would like to be positioned. Also please note the way he is looking at her. This is how I would like him to look at me. Sometimes certain images just kick you in the stomach. Or groin. In this case, both. These are newly released stills from the upcoming Crazy Stupid Love. Full Story

Not his best day

The Bang Bang Club screened at the Tribeca Film Festival today. Malin Ackerman, Ryan Phillippe, and Taylor Kitsch were all present. I don’t know what’s happening with Taylor’s hair but it’s hurting me, like actual physical pain. Obviously not his best showing. Having said that, yay for him hanging out with DeNiro on red carpets! But back to the hair… Is it long in the back or short? Is it in a ponytail? Is that a combover? Why am I including the word COMBOVER in an article about Taylor Kitsch????????????? The world hates me. Full Story

Lewis hit up the Marilyn Denis Show this morning to promote Textuality. Full Story

You know who isn’t young, famous, and mean? He’s young and famous, yes. But the mean part, it’s not Cory Monteith. Cory was at Coachella too (Memo to Cory – but you’re checking your iphone for Canucks updates every few minutes during games, right?) and working some moves on a pretty girl…who seems like a good match, at least in height. Full Story

Written by Duana Oh, you guys. I am so excited. What I’ve heard, but not seen, is that the VD deliciousness gets an extra special swirl when these guys are high school kids – like, going to sock hops and hanging out in the cafeteria – while vamping out and worrying whether good ol’ Tyler is going to come home and cause problems. Full Story

Rachel & the Old 97s

Rachel McAdams is at home in Toronto. And last night she was at the Horseshoe Tavern for the Old 97s show. Here she is outside with a few friends. So beautiful. Am told from people inside that she was glowing, that in person she was even more gorgeous. I know what you’re about to ask: is she still with Michael Sheen?!?!? They haven’t been papped together since February when he took her home to Wales after travelling together to Ireland. Full Story

I was at the airport when the Crazy, Stupid, Love trailer dropped yesterday. I watched it in the lounge, then got on the plane, and by the time I landed in Toronto 5 hours later, my inbox was full of your horny panting emails. And he lit up everywhere on the internet too as every blog and entertainment news site tried, and in some cases failed, to avoid the headline: Ryan Gosling is crazy, stupid, hot. Full Story

Ryan is thin

Definitely thinner lately, right? Just me? Ryan Reynolds was in Vegas for CinemaCon yesterday to promote The Green Lantern (with Blake Lively, more on her later) and to collect his award for Male Star of the Year. As you can see, he has a new shorter haircut. I’m telling you, his face looks a lot more drawn. Full Story
