I wonder if they get sick of seeing their own movie. Even if they love that movie. Even if it’s the passion project of a lifetime, I wonder if there isn’t a little fatigue about it, especially when we’re coming up on a year of promoting it. Like, everywhere. Blue Valentine premiered exactly 11 months ago at Sundance. Full Story

JAKEY & RYAN: HAPPY FRIDAY!!!

Lainey Posted by Lainey at December 3, 2010 13:07:05 December 3, 2010 13:07:05

Sorry to Kanye West your eyeballs but, well, Jakey G and Ryan G stood next to each other last night in Beverly Hills at a screening for Blue Valentine and it seems like all caps are appropriate, non? Michelle Williams was there too. And she looked lovely and delightful but well... Jakey and Ryan .. Full Story

In defense of...

Written by Duana ...Rachel ANYONE. This week Glee makes the cardinal sin of starting on the adults, and not even Sue, whom I find generally distracting from the show, but at least mildly entertaining on occasion. But it’s okay, because they quickly inform us that this is going to be the ‘deal with the gripes of the audience’ episode. Full Story

Cory’s Snow Day

I was supposed to go in studio yesterday to shoot etalk. But it was Snow Day. I wrote to them in Toronto at 5am begging off because, frankly, I’m afraid to drive in the snow. We have snow tires but... it’s really not a good idea. Jacek agrees. It was almost like they didn’t believe me though. Full Story

Goon >Love Guru

Lainey Posted by Lainey at November 25, 2010 08:15:00 November 25, 2010 08:15:00

Then again, it’s not hard to be better than The Love Guru. Woah wait. Wasn’t Jessica Alba in The Love Guru. Was she forced at gunpoint? Because, you know, she’s all discerning and sh-t right? Anyway, there’s another Canadian who is making a movie about hockey. And, well, it sounds awesome. Full Story

Can’t let Jakey have all the love

It’s like Ryan Gosling was standing by, watching Jakey G the last couple of weeks getting us all weak and quivery, and decided enough is enough. He came back swinging HARD. So you know about this business with the MPAA. Blue Valentine has been given an NC17 rating because of a sex scene between a married couple that they feel is too real. Full Story

Ryan Reynolds: Sexiest Man Alive 2010

His odds were 15 – 1. So it’s not like this was a longshot. I am surprised though. Because Green Lantern is still 8 months from release and because he’s Canadian...although I guess when you marry an American, Americans are more inclined to consider you one of their own. I know. I hear you. Full Story

I will make this happen

If you've been reading my blog long enough you know that forever ever ever I've been hoping for Natalie Portman and Ryan Gosling. Forever. They were briefly dealing with each other about a year and a half ago - a couple of friendly outings and text messages - but that died fast and never picked up again. Full Story

Poster Quiver

Remember Kate Hudson’s hysterically bad poster for what looks to be her upcoming hysterically bad movie A Little Bit of Heaven? Click here if you’ve forgotten. Full Story

Morning Glory lady wood

For Rachel McAdams. How hard are you for Rachel McAdams? Gorgeous Rachel McAdams quivered everyone at the NY premiere of Morning Glory last night. I mean, Michael Sheen didn’t have a chance, did he? For those of you asking, far as I know, as of 2 weeks ago, they were still happening. The way she looks here, it’s probably still happening. Full Story

Blue Valentine blue balls

Lainey Posted by Lainey at November 8, 2010 10:53:38 November 8, 2010 10:53:38

Right? Would this movie just f-cking come out already? It’s been at every festival, it premiered at the AFI Fest in Hollywood on Saturday night. But still it won’t hit theatres until late December, in limited release (!), and with a dumbass NC17 rating. I have blue balls from wanting to see it again. Full Story
