Ryan Gosling was at the airport in Toronto today flying out after spending an extended holiday break at home. Click here if you missed my post and the photo of him from Best Buy in Burlington at Christmas. So he was away from the scene for over a week. Full Story

New Year, Fan Despair

I did not want to wake up this morning. It has been a decadent holiday break. But I laughed for a long, long, LONG time looking at these photos. Hysterically. Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez spent New Year’s on a boat together in the Caribbean. As you can see, there was some romance happening. Of the teen variety. Full Story

Ryan Gosling: home for the holidays

Thanks to Jackie for sending along this photo of Ryan Gosling taken this weekend at a Best Buy in Burlington, Ontario. He came home for the holiday. He actually comes home more than you think. He’s just stealth about his movements and savvy enough to stay off the pap radar at LAX. It’s possible. Full Story

This is the first still from the upcoming Crazy, Stupid, Love starring Steve Carell and Ryan Gosling. I can’t wait to see him in a comedy. And with a killer wardrobe. It might be too much. I mean this photo, this photo is almost too much. So now we know a little about the plot. Steve’s wife (played by Julianne Moore) cheats on him. Full Story

Creatively they are doing it

It’s wishful thinking. But Christmas is 4 days away. So ...why not? Michelle Williams and Ryan Gosling are promoting Blue Valentine. Endlessly. Cynthia McFadden interviewed the two for ABC and asked about the rumours that they’re dating. (What rumours? I hadn’t heard of any rumours that they’re dating. Full Story

Gift giving: Nathan Fillion

Lainey Posted by Lainey at December 16, 2010 08:27:35 December 16, 2010 08:27:35

I receive a lot of requests for Nathan Fillion. And because he’s not a cover boy, he’s very rarely papped. It was a nice surprise then to see these shots of him, taken the other night, as he and his girlfriend were leaving dinner. Erm. I’m not sure if I’m down with her outfit. Full Story

Fashionista is reporting that Justin Bieber has graduated from covering Teen Tiger Child Beat magazines to Vanity Fair – an issue in February or March – to coincide with his tour movie Never Say Never. How you feel about this of course depends on, really, how old you are. Full Story

Separation Season

Lainey Posted by Lainey at December 14, 2010 13:53:27 December 14, 2010 13:53:27

So many breakups. Yesterday it was Michael C Hall and Jennifer Carpenter. Today it’s two names on a muuuuch bigger scale. This article is about Scarlett Johansson and Ryan Reynolds. But come back tomorrow and I’ll have more for you on Hall and Carpenter. It’s complicated. Probably a lot more complicated than Scarjo and Ryan. Full Story

At least they got this right

But first... I’m sorry to do this to you so early in the morning but Ryan Gosling covers the new GQ and, well, work should be winding down for you this time of year anyway, right? Who actually works the second week of December? You’re pretending to work... while managing your quiver now. Click here Full Story

Best of 2010: Virtue & Moir Vancouver 2010

Lainey Posted by Lainey at December 10, 2010 13:27:00 December 10, 2010 13:27:00

Not sure where you are but here, in Canada, the Olympics were a big deal in 2010, an even bigger deal in Vancouver, where I live. Every Games produces darlings. There were several Canadian darlings. Among them Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir who took gold in Ice Dance. And they did it with a f-cking statement. Full Story
