Blake’s cosy three

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

Yesterday at McMaster University, convocation for Humanities studies, class of 2011, a woman walks up to receive her diploma. From the audience, a loud shout: LOVE YOU MOM! YOU’RE THE BEST MOM EVER! It was Ryan Gosling. He was there for his mother. Here’s Ryan with his ma and sister in 2007 at the Oscars when he was nominated for Best Actor for his work in Half Nelson. Full Story

Rihanna & Drake all weekend

They were both in Montreal. It was F1 Weekend. They hung out all weekend. On Friday night they hit up Terrasses Bonsecours for a party he hosted. Both were taken in and out through the ice cream parlour. Inside they played like they didn’t have time for each other. Like they sat apart from each other but also stayed on their PDAs all night, texting at the same time. Full Story

Rachel McAdams was in Boston last night to watch the home team tie up the series at 2 leaving the Canucks shaken as they head home to regroup for Friday’s game at Rogers Arena where I will be, sitting in a tense arena. I know some people are angry that Rachel was cheering for the Bruins. Michael J Fox is also cheering for the Bruins, and he’s from BC. Full Story

Olivia’s next Ryan

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

Mall, Hotel, Grandparents

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

Swiss Chalet!!!

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

The older Sutherland gets snow

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

Young lovers sucking in together

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
