Cory’s Snow Day

Lainey Posted by Lainey at November 26, 2010 08:14:19 November 26, 2010 08:14:19

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

Lainey Posted by Lainey at November 11, 2010 10:22:13 November 11, 2010 10:22:13

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

So much Ryan

They were all on set yesterday shooting a scene in which there’s a pawn shoppe robbery or something – Ryan Gosling, Christina Hendricks, and Carey Mulligan in pink. Really not sure why they keep dressing him like an Elvis impersonator but whatever, when that jacket comes off, there’s not much to complain about. Full Story

President Snow?

Lainey Posted by Lainey at October 29, 2010 13:00:13 October 29, 2010 13:00:13

Many of your questions during our liveblog discussions on Tuesdays and Thursdays and your emails too involve casting for The Hunger Games series. Right now, no one has been confirmed. And from what I heard, as of early this week, there’s not even a shortlist. So they are seeing everyone. And everyone wants it. Full Story

Carey & Shia move on

Lainey Posted by Lainey at October 25, 2010 10:08:53 October 25, 2010 10:08:53

These are photos of Carey Mulligan shooting Drive with Ryan Gosling in a diner the other day. She was also shot by the paps this weekend (those photos are exclusive and very expensive) leaving her new temporary home in Los Angeles, a Best Western. And not in a swanky part of town. And it’s not like she can’t afford to stay somewhere more upscale. Full Story
