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

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

Drizzy plays home and brings friends

Drake performed at the Molson Amphitheatre last night in hometown Toronto. "I love this city with my entire life.” It was the last stop on his Away From Home tour and he was joined onstage by Rick Ross, Fabolous, Young Jeezy, Kardinal Offishall and... Well can you imagine the reaction for Drizzy + Shady? HOT. Full Story

Blonde Rachel in Paris

Lainey Posted by Lainey at July 30, 2010 07:14:42 July 30, 2010 07:14:42

Seems like a good way to start the day after shouts - a blonde wavy Rachel McAdams shot with Owen Wilson in Paris last night on Woody Allen’s new feature Midnight in Paris. After completing this film, Rachel should move into promotion for the upcoming Morning Glory with Harrison Ford and Diane Keaton. Full Story

Pacey-Con the video

Lainey Posted by Lainey at July 27, 2010 07:52:41 July 27, 2010 07:52:41

You saw the photos yesterday, now Funny or Die has uploaded the video. It’s not the best Funny or Die piece ever, it’s a little contrived and obvious, but his shirt makes up for it, and of course the song, and the shot of him looking out his hotel room window kills me. Makes me want to go back and watch Dawson’s Creek from the beginning. Full Story

One note Blake

Lainey Posted by Lainey at July 26, 2010 11:59:38 July 26, 2010 11:59:38

It was supposed to be the Comic-Con panel for The Green Lantern. Instead Blake Lively tried to make it about her breasts. Hard-ons aside, I mean, really, is it necessary? There were people who I interviewed in line waiting for hours, I mean hours, in the heat, they’d come from far and wide, and if they wanted to see cleave, they could have stayed at home with their laptops and jerked off. Full Story

Pacey-Con

Lainey Posted by Lainey at July 26, 2010 09:54:11 July 26, 2010 09:54:11

There’s Robert Pattinson’s unintentional comedy, and then there’s Pacey-Con San Diego 2010. The.Best. He’s the best. Joshua Jackson was at Comic-Con for Fringe. On his down time he decided to go back to Capeside, wardrobe and all, for some fan fiction reading, and of course a little Paula Cole blaring from a boom box. Full Story

My men are here

Lainey Posted by Lainey at July 13, 2010 12:10:30 July 13, 2010 12:10:30

Joshua Jackson is back in Vancouver resuming production on a new season of Fringe. Look at him on set yesterday. Look how cute. He doesn’t fuss, he doesn’t pull attitude, he doesn’t demand to have his ass kissed. Instead he is always jovial, always smiling, always in great spirits with the crew, with his peers. Full Story
