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

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

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

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

Best of 2010: Brendan Fraser claps at the Globes

Lainey Posted by Lainey at December 7, 2010 14:15:48 December 7, 2010 14:15:48

Brendan Fraser provided two great moments worth coming back to this year. Have you forgotten him at the Globes? Dude, they made music videos out of what he did at the Globes. Here. Let me remind you. Maybe it’s just me. But if I’m, like, making a salad or something, and this visual suddenly pops into my mind, I’m straight up laughing. Full Story

1001 Screenings

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.
