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

Or… Sidney! Neve Campbell was in Toronto at the Marilyn Denis Show today promoting Scream 4. Not really sure about her choice in footwear but she looks good, right? Neve is single now but told Health Magazine recently that after having spent so much time on humanitarian missions in South Africa, she is becoming more and more serious about adoption. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

I know I sound like a major home teamer but Drake hosted the SH-T out of the Juno Awards last night in Toronto. It was something for everyone. Appropriate for everyone. Cool without crossing the line, respectful without being ass kissy, funny and engaging without seeming like he was trying too hard.  Read Full Intro

The Heart Truth campaign encourages women to identify risks and warning signs for heart disease and stroke, providing women with the tools they need to take charge of their heart health. This is especially relevant for women 40 – 60 years old. Full Story

SO good, right? Ryan Gosling continues to work on The Ides of March in Michigan with George Clooney and Philip Seymour Hoffman – my Haymitch in The Hunger Games, although I could be persuaded into something really, really out of the box, I mean it has to be f-cking crazy, no one would ever think it, so original. Full Story

Filler Palate Cleanser breakup or not

Rachel Bilson is what you call filler content on a blog between articles. Like, you’re in that dead zone between morning and afternoon when the photo agencies are loading up new content and you don’t want to go front heavy, particularly today as I’m trying to pace out my posts for when I fly in a few hours and oh look, there’s a Rachel Bilson story… I’d never lead with Rachel Bilson because, obviously. Full Story

Of Vegas. It’s Celine. She’s back at Caesars for a multiyear run that will reportedly earn her $100 million. Last night was the kick-off. Obviously I wasn’t there, but judging from the photos, well, it certainly looks like Celine was Celine. And maybe even with a few new moves? Am currently obsessed with what appears to be a gesture from the half-hip – check out the photo of her in the black dress with the generous slit as she’s throwing one side of her body into some kind of gyration. Full Story

Have you seen it? Check out the new Super poster featuring Ellen Page. The trailer is below. About Rainn Wilson whose wife is seduced by a skeezy drug dealer, played hilariously by Kevin Bacon. To assuage his feelings of inadequacy, Wilson becomes a superhero with Ellen as his diminutive scrawny sidekick, hopping around enthusiastically in a yellow and green unitard. Full Story
