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

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

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

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

Ryan Gosling’s weekend

Lainey Posted by Lainey at August 9, 2010 08:32:42 August 9, 2010 08:32:42

There was a W Magazine photo shoot with Michelle Williams that took place in Leslieville presumably for their film Blue Valentine. Williams is shooting a movie in town so he, and they, came to her. Jesus, his hair. And in that leather jacket. And the way he’s filling out his t-shirt. Can’t wait to see these pictures. Full Story

TCA Man Canada

Lainey Posted by Lainey at August 9, 2010 07:45:36 August 9, 2010 07:45:36

SO cute. Joshua Jackson and the best tie of the night like an elder statesman at an awards show he dominated 10 years ago as Pacey Witter – gorgeous, non? He would say Diane picked it out. They’ve enjoyed a lovely summer together, from Vancouver to LA and back again, with relative privacy. Full Story

Sarah Polley at work

Lainey Posted by Lainey at August 6, 2010 12:07:41 August 6, 2010 12:07:41

She is one of Canada’s brightest, most brilliant talents. And the last time she wrote and directed a movie it was nominated for awards everywhere, including Oscar. She’s now working on Take This Waltz (second Leonard Cohen reference today – huzzah!), a screenplay with so much potential it was included on that infamous Black List people keep talking about. Full Story

NYC Glee

Lainey Posted by Lainey at August 5, 2010 09:50:00 August 5, 2010 09:50:00

The cast of Glee was photographed yesterday on the set prepping for what looks like a New York City themed musical number. Gold chained b-boys! Rumour has it that Empire State of Mind could be heard during filming. Lea Michele was in great spirits. The episode is probably all about her then. Glee returns for its second season with high expectations as buzz has not abated over the summer and new details continue to emerge about what to expect. Full Story

Hayden’s new piece?

Lainey Posted by Lainey at August 5, 2010 09:10:56 August 5, 2010 09:10:56

Oh relax. It’s just a car ride. But relations between Hayden Christensen and Rachel Bilson must be very shaky indeed if she didn’t show for the LA premiere of Takers last night. You know Rachel never misses a carpet opportunity. And then leaving the afterparty, model Sophie Monk and Hayden were seen in the same vehicle. Full Story
