Rachel McAdams will be spending the summer in France. She’ll be filming a Woody Allen movie with Marion Cotillard. Girlcrush overload, non? Oh and Owen Wilson is involved too. Today however Rachel was spotted in Toronto, out for lunch with her dad. Of course Toronto. Always Toronto. LA is not Rachel’s scene. Full Story

F-ck I miss Arrested Development. Dancing with the Has-been Sh-ts keeps coming back, season after season, and one of the funniest shows on television EVER gets canned after 3 years. What’s the problem??? Too much dumbassness is the problem. Maybe it’s because of his characters. After all you’d have to be a sadist to be attracted to Gob, but Will Arnett as Will Arnett only, well, he’s hot, non? Check him out arriving in Vancouver yesterday to begin shooting a new pilot. Full Story

The Genie Awards, Canada’s film honours, took place in Toronto last night. Joshua Jackson brought Diane Kruger. And she watched him win Best Actor for his work in One Week. Diane was super cute about it too, they were hugging and kissing all night, very much together, in love and in dress. Matching. Full Story

I’m not sure anyone over the age of 16 can identify a Justin Bieber song. I live in Canada, and he’s Canadian, and we are saturated with Bieber, and even I can’t tell you what it sounds like. But these days, nothing matters unless it matters to the under 16 anyway. So Justin Bieber is everywhere. Full Story

In Toronto, I work out of the CTV Building which is also the MuchMusic Building. MuchMusic is a big deal for teens. And there are often young girls lined up around the block waiting for an appearance. One day, it was over a year ago, Michelle and I arrived early in the morning and they had camped out, barely able to contain their squeals. Full Story

Joseph Gordon-Levitt is 29. Doesn’t look it normally, does he? Closer to 20 than 30, non? That’s the challenge for baby faced actors. JGL is currently in Vancouver working on Seth Rogen’s new film, formerly titled I’m With Cancer. Can we give it a proper name yet? The Untitled Seth Rogen Cancer Project sounds horrible. Full Story

This boy is cute

Isn’t he? Look at that skin. And his sheepish little expression. Cory Monteith is a full blown adult playing high school and that got tired real quick with Taylor Kitsch and Scott Porter (hello Friday Night Lights!) but on Cory, I’m buying and this is not a negative. Cory’s cute makes up for his lack of pants steeze. Full Story

Background: I have been very, VERY critical of Michael Buble especially while he was dating Emily Blunt who is, as many of you know, in my estimation, as close to perfect as it gets in Hollywood... with the exception of Marion Cotillard. But this is another discussion. There were allegations of infidelity, of douchey behaviour, and I wrote about it extensively. Full Story
