Rachel & Michael?

Lainey Posted by Lainey at September 14, 2010 07:02:00 September 14, 2010 07:02:00

Rachel McAdams showed up at the Beautiful Boy (starring Michael Sheen and Maria Bello) screening on Sunday night and at the film’s afterparty at Cheval. SO pretty. Loose blonde hair in waves around her face, great tight black dress with an exposed zipper running all the way down the back – she has an amazing ass – and stacked black heels, hot. Full Story

Happy Airport Reunion

Lainey Posted by Lainey at September 13, 2010 06:33:32 September 13, 2010 06:33:32

Starting off the day with a nod to Vancouver because I miss home. Jacek left for home yesterday to see Marcus and even though I barely saw him this week while we were in Toronto because my ass was parked at Soho House at the end of every night until at least 2am, there’s something about coming back and knowing he’s there that makes the crazy sh-t and pressure and deadlines go away fast. Full Story

Welcome back to school

Lainey Posted by Lainey at September 7, 2010 06:22:21 September 7, 2010 06:22:21

How to get over your Labour Day hangover? Welcome back to school/work with some Ryan Gosling’s hot arms playing guitar in a white shirt and sunglasses as Dead Man’s Bones performed at the FYF Festival in LA on Saturday. Um, his bandmate Zach isn’t bad either. Go ahead, take a few minutes with your coffee, pretend it’s not Tuesday and a year until the next summer. Full Story

Drake returns the favour

Lainey Posted by Lainey at September 3, 2010 09:01:41 September 3, 2010 09:01:41

Drake was in New York on Wednesday night, shooting an ad for Kodak. Oh the endorsements are pouring in. Last night however Drake was in Detroit. Last night was night 1 of Home & Home. As in Eminem & Jay-Z. Detroit & New York. Four epic shows and so much hype and by all accounts, they did not disappoint. Full Story

How he spent his birthday

Lainey Posted by Lainey at September 3, 2010 07:27:28 September 3, 2010 07:27:28

It was yesterday. He’s 46. And he was in New York, photographed with a coffee and a cupcake, lonely but not for long, making friends with passersby and local workers, which will probably prompt yet another online “Save Keanu” petition like the first one, cheekily initiated by those worried over his appearance and solitary sadness when he was photographed a couple of months ago, in the same clothes actually, eating a sandwich all by himself on a park bench. Full Story

Rihanna gives us Taylor Kitsch

Lainey Posted by Lainey at September 2, 2010 13:45:08 September 2, 2010 13:45:08

Rihanna has joined the cast of Battleship, now shooting in Oahu. Always lovely to see her of course especially since she’s always wearing the most delightful things but this time, she’s giving in new ways. Ri as you know is a constant pap target. Which means that everyone around her is like collateral damage. Full Story

Pacey knows Greek mythology

Lainey Posted by Lainey at September 1, 2010 12:04:17 September 1, 2010 12:04:17

The new issue of NUVO Magazine, published in Vancouver, features our very own Joshua Jackson, photographed in Los Angeles, more handsome than ever. And actually rather erudite. Commenting on the environment and specifically the Gulf oil spill and how it might only be the beginning in a future fraught with more disaster, Josh posited: “Pick your myth—we’re either Pandora or Prometheus or, frankly maybe Icarus. Full Story

Photo Assumption: Halle & Gabriel

Lainey Posted by Lainey at August 26, 2010 09:28:44 August 26, 2010 09:28:44

Keeping it together for their daughter, Halle Berry and Gabriel Aubry were in London this morning – me too! – hanging out with Nahla, furniture shopping, hitting up the London Eye, looking for the Queen at Buckingham Palace. Some reports suggest that Halle and Gabriel are trying to reconcile, that they’re giving their relationship another chance. Full Story

Rachel’s friend isn’t Jake

Lainey Posted by Lainey at August 18, 2010 10:17:01 August 18, 2010 10:17:01

WHY NOT????????? Like, when you present together at the Oscars and look so cute and perfect, you are SUPPOSED to become boyfriend and girlfriend right away, don’t you know?!!!???????!!!!!! Obviously Rachel McAdams simply has no interest in fulfilling our Hollywood matchmaking fantasies and was seen yesterday in Paris with a friend, so pretty, so lovely, and I don’t give a sh-t who this guy is, all I know is that he’s not who I want him to be. Full Story

Rachel & Owen?

Lainey Posted by Lainey at August 12, 2010 14:28:33 August 12, 2010 14:28:33

Have been receiving emails about this and on Twitter about a report today that Rachel McAdams and Owen Wilson, in Paris working on Midnight in Paris with Woody Allen, are now hooking up. The origin of the story is the UK Sun. Do we still have to talk about this? Aside from the fact that the source, like, sucks, a McAdams Wilson love match seems unlikely, not only because co-stars don’t always just jump into the sack, but because well, Rachel McAdams is rather square compared to the others. Full Story

Catching up on Vampire Diaries

Lainey Posted by Lainey at August 10, 2010 08:06:28 August 10, 2010 08:06:28

I don’t watch the show but, as mentioned before, I do get a lot of requests from those of you who do – for gossip, photos, and to convince me to start getting into it. Totally forgot that I interviewed the cast at Comic-Con and since you’ve been emailing me to write about them after Teen Choice, it seems a good time to get caught up. Full Story
