Like I just said, are you ready to bury it? Here’s Carey Mulligan in great spirits with Ryan Gosling yesterday on the set of Drive in LA. No, no, no, stop, no, this doesn’t mean they’re f-cking, or that they want to f-ck, or that they will f-ck soon. Stop projecting yourself onto the photos. Full Story

He was on your Five List

There was a time, many years ago, when Brendan Fraser was on your Freebie Five. And now Brendan Fraser is walking around New York with his new hair firmly plugged wearing bright blue grandpa sweaters and ... I’m just curious what you think now.

Ryan’s apple

He was eating one on set yesterday with Carey Mulligan. They weren’t sharing, no, she was just there, but that was a good sentence. I can’t wait to see this movie. Anyway, not much more I can write about this. Don’t let me get in the way of your enjoyment. Photos from Fame  Full Story

Bit thin, but hot

Lainey Posted by Lainey at September 29, 2010 12:59:48 September 29, 2010 12:59:48

A lot hotter than he was a few months back and people thought he homeless and lonely and needing to be rescued. Here’s Keanu Reeves, no coffee, no cupcake, on break from shooting Generation Um in New York today. As I was drafting this post, I thought to myself: should I write about him making another movie with Sandy? And then I remembered The Lake House and laughed out loud. Full Story

How did you know?

It’s less than 2 hours away know from the Surgery and I’m about to call my ma. Very, very anxious. I think I need to be completely knocked out. This is what happened when I broke my arm and they had to fix it in France. I was supposed to be put under general anaesthesia to begin with but then I overheard the anaesthesiologist telling the nurse “this girl is fragile” and I think he gave me a little extra. Full Story

I’ll watch for Harry Shum Jr

Lainey Posted by Lainey at September 28, 2010 08:58:00 September 28, 2010 08:58:00

He’s getting more air time on Glee. Good. That’ll keep me interested for a few more episodes. Especially, um, if he keeps dancing with his shirt off. But not gratuitously, oh no. Like it has to totally make sense with the storyline, you know? One of the things I love most about Taylor Kitsch in Friday Night Lights was how he’d protest the taking off of his shirt, randomly, just because. Full Story

Keanu at work on Generation Um

Lainey Posted by Lainey at September 22, 2010 14:10:12 September 22, 2010 14:10:12

It’s an independent film, it’s currently shooting in New York, and it’s one of those that might not see distribution, but obviously something in it spoke to him, and at this point, he really only has to work when he wants to, so here’s Keanu Reeves on set today, looking better and less lonely than he has recently, eating a cupcake, and still, though weathered and damaged, still so hauntingly beautiful. Full Story

Stop working now

Lainey Posted by Lainey at September 22, 2010 12:33:55 September 22, 2010 12:33:55

Um, yeah so these just came up. Ryan Gosling and the girl he’s been seen with a few times now and they’re walking around after lunch and they meet some dogs and Ryan’s all over the dogs and he seems to really favour this shirt and his jeans are perfect and I love it when he smirks, and go back to the one with the dogs, he’s really into the dogs, and now again to his face, and, as Sasha noted, his really hot forearms and then ask yourself. Full Story

They ran in the rain

Lainey Posted by Lainey at September 17, 2010 11:52:00 September 17, 2010 11:52:00

It poured yesterday in Toronto. Ryan Gosling was walking down Yorkville, a cup of coffee in his hand, wearing a leather jacket. I was shooting etalk at the time at Sassafraz and I'm too lazy to run out there to get soaked for him. But people were following, running out of local shoppes to meet him. Full Story

Saving up for the fans

He arrived at 5am yesterday on the red-eye from LA. It was supposed to be a full day of press followed by his carpet at Ryerson. He came to our etalk Lounge at the Intercontinental. The girls could barely hold their quiver together. Laura won’t admit it but she was ready to give up Robert Pattinson. Full Story
