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

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

Lainey Posted by Lainey at January 21, 2011 08:11:47 January 21, 2011 08:11:47

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

Taylor in Toronto

This is Taylor Kitsch – WITH SHORT HAIR!!! – on the Marilyn Denis Show on Tuesday. I was on the Marilyn Denis Show on Monday. Motherf-ck!!! But the hair is so much better, right? He is hot as Tim Riggins, but I don’t like my boys with long hair. That was a character requirement, and that may be the only reason I’m happy Friday Night Lights is no more. Full Story

Mrs Wahlberg’s BitchFace

Lainey Posted by Lainey at January 18, 2011 09:15:00 January 18, 2011 09:15:00

And here we thought she was just a garden variety model wife. A very fertile one at that. But Mrs Wahlberg, also known as Rhea Durham, she has a raging bitch inside of her. And when she lets it out? Look. The. F-ck. Out. It’s amazing. The background: I work on an entertainment news show in Canada called etalk Full Story

Ryan Gosling’s Golden Globe scrunchy face

Lainey Posted by Lainey at January 17, 2011 08:44:56 January 17, 2011 08:44:56

It cost him, at least on this blog, The Best Man at the Globes Awards. So close. But when his category was called he scrunched up his face. WHY did he have to be the guy who scrunches up his face? I don’t care how hot he looked – and he did, so hot – you lose points with the false modesty. Full Story

Rachel in Spain

Lainey Posted by Lainey at January 13, 2011 07:52:36 January 13, 2011 07:52:36

Loved what she wore the other night in London at the UK premiere of Morning Glory – click here for a refresher – and LOVE what she’s wearing today in Spain at the photocall. Except for the shoes. But a smock? Or at least the illusion of one? For me it’s a win every time. Full Story

What could this possibly be about?

Lainey Posted by Lainey at January 12, 2011 11:47:00 January 12, 2011 11:47:00

Michael Cera and Tony Danza were filmed going for frozen yoghurt today. …the f-ck? What could this possibly be about? Random sh-t, right? Well, I don’t mean to be mean, but right now, Cera kinda needs any help he can get seeing as Jesse Eisenberg has pretty much killed his value. Scott Pilgrim was a bomb. Full Story

Rachel just barely

Rachel McAdams was in London tonight for the UK premiere of Morning Glory. I LOVE THIS DRESS SO MUCH. And she’s just the right size for it. Meaning… she has modest breasts, which are the only breasts that can keep it decent. Otherwise it’s oozing all over the place. Mine would be oozing all over the place. Full Story
