Diane & Josh: rings?

There are two things I never notice: pregnancy and wedding rings. You know how when you check someone out, there’s an unconscious but not really list that gets ticked off? For me, it’s always shoes, then hair, then skin, then I want to know about the body, how they look in those pants/skirt/dress, then I spend a few seconds judging the pants/skirt/dress, and at that point it’s impolite to keep staring so I look away and fixate on someone else. Full Story

Avril Lavigne attended the Brit Awards last night in London. While on the carpet, with her hair dyed all different colours, she stuck out her tongue and lifted her middle finger. How long has this been? Almost 10 years, it has to be, right? So some artists constantly reinvent. And others… don’t f-cking move. Full Story

Exclusive I wrote about Rachel McAdams and Michael Sheen the other day when they were spotted at Dublin airport – click here for a refresher. They were there because Michael Sheen received the James Joyce Award from the Literary and Historical Society of University College Dublin. Full Story

Diana Kruger arrived at LAX yesterday and Joshua Jackson picked her up with flowers, which, like, awwww… Not just because it’s flowers and Valentines but because there are so many paps at that airport, and so many starf-ckers standing around, and he’s all like, whatever, I need to be romantic for my girl. Full Story

Every week during the liveblog, someone asks whether or not Rachel McAdams are Michael Sheen are still together. They are. At least as of Friday when they were photographed at Dublin airport. I don’t know what they did on Saturday, Sunday, or today, but that doesn’t mean you should panic. Full Story

Ryan, George, and Jazz

Oh lucky you Cincinnati. George Clooney is making his movie there. On Wednesday he hit up the Blue Wisp Jazz Club with his parents, Ryan Gosling, Evan Rachel Wood, and a few others to hear the Big Band play. It wasn’t a terribly busy night. George bought drinks, he was friendly with the musicians, and he and Ryan were chill with the civilians, chatting with a group of students who had come there as part of their class. Full Story

Pretty gets super ugly super fast

Woah. This sh-t between Halle Berry and Gabriel Aubry is escalating quickly, like even by celebrity standards. She threw down the first public salvo in a statement to People.com on Monday implying that he’s an unfit parent and that baby Nahla isn’t safe around him for long stretches. His supporters then leaked to Radar Online that she’s a controlling bitch who’s been spying on him and is jealous about all the new hot ass he’s been getting. Full Story

I’m asked to keep a lookout all the time for new Nathan Fillion photos. So here he is yesterday on the set of Castle, with fellow Canadian co-star Stana Katic, getting his makeup done, preparing to shoot new scenes. Don’t be mad, I don’t watch the show. But I hear it’s good. He’s good. Full Story

No Good Deed…

Written by Duana Season 5, Episode 10 You went to turn on this episode, ready to follow the lives of the Taylors and Vince and probably Tinker, because who doesn’t love Tinker, and your brain short-circuited with an algorithm something like the following: Taylor Kitsch Kitsch Kitsch Taylor Tim Tim Riggins Riggins Tim Taylor Hairline? Riggins Tim Taylor Taylor Taylor Shirtless? There’s a tenet in writing that says if you consider the audience (not everyone does) you must give them what they need and not what they want. Full Story

Fridays with Ryan

The last couple of months, it’s almost like we’ve come to count on it. A Friday send-off from Ryan Gosling, the perfect way to punctuate the end of a long work week, helping to start it on a great, sexy note. Also, during this awards season, as he continues to hustle for his little movie Blue Valentine, on talk shows, in magazines, everywhere, it’s important to remember that this won’t last. Full Story
