Love him. Seth Rogen and Judd Apatow are currently promoting Funny People. Seth was on Howard Stern this morning and was asked about working with Katherine Heigl. Let’s backtrack because I received an email today from Natasha W who told me I was too harsh for calling Heigl a bitch and for laughing about putting her face on a piñata at Lara’s stag last weekend and punting over the balcony. Full Story

Twi-Hards were in distress yesterday, not over Robert Pattinson for a change, but because Rachelle Lefevre was coldheartedly booted out of the saga and replaced by Bryce Dallas Howard. Poor Bryce. You know how crazy those losers can get. Hopefully they won’t hate on her too hard. It’s not her fault. Full Story

This is for Lara. At her stag this weekend, Kelly and Duana put together a game of Family Feud. Joshua Jackson was an answer in the category “Lara’s Celebrity Crushes” alongside Ed Westwick and Justin Timberlake. Lara will LOVE these photos. It’s Joshua at Vancouver airport leaving for Comic-Con with his co-star John Noble, looking so f-cking beautiful in a black suit, not acting like a total douchebag just because he’s getting papped. Full Story

These are high times for Alanis Morissette. It’s a weak line, but it works. As you know, Alanis is enjoying a 7 ep arc on Weeds (please say you watch Weeds, please say you watch Weeds and not the other bullsh-t) after wrapping a successful 2 year run with Flavours of Entanglement, is supposed to star in a film adapted from Radio Free Albemuth, is happy and healthy, is involved with a non celebrity, and looks better than she ever has. Full Story

Emmy ignored True Blood. So it’s my duty to remind you that a new episode will air on HBO and HBO Canada on Sunday. My husband asked me yesterday: is there sex, are there breasts? It’s all he needs to know. And the answer is yes and yes. Oh and it’s funny as sh-t. Here’s Anna Paquin in New York – last night at Letterman in a black dress and today on Regis & Kelly. Full Story

These are file photos of Ryan Gosling from around the same time last year in Washington at the American Progress' national conference. He’d buzzed off his hair. And he’s buzzed it off again. Click here to see Full Story

Whip It for the girls!

Thanks to Emily H for the heads up. Emily normally has her panties twisted over Kristen Stewart. But Ellen Page just might be her one true love. A better placed, orientation-wise that is, infatuation. Ellen Page is the star of Juno. And we’ve not seen her in a while. But we will next see her in Whip It, Drew Barrymore’s directorial debut. Full Story

Canada Day was July 1st but we’ll still be celebrating this weekend. And what better way to kick it off? Here’s our legend, the icon, the poet, the best, in Berlin on Thursday arriving in advance of an evening show. He’s been touring all year (sigh, he needs the money, and still donated $200K to the Australian fire relief), will turn 75 in the fall, and will celebrate his birthday with a show in Barcelona. Full Story

Drake by Kanye

There’s been a lot of hype surrounding Drake, helped of course by his intriguing relationship with Rihanna. He’s Canadian so chatter is even louder here than anywhere else. But even before signing with L’il Wayne’s label Young Money for a deal rumoured to be worth $4 million (which I’m not sure I buy) Drake’s buzz was already impressive with many established acts in the industry openly calling him the next, including Kanye West who’s working with him and wanted to direct the video for his first single for an album that still doesn’t have a release date. Full Story

You can’t see it here but he’s been booting around on one in Vancouver for the last couple of weeks. Joshua Jackson is home. For work. Production on Fringe has moved here and he was spotted on set yesterday shooting scenes for the new season. Cutie! And where’s Diane Kruger? She’s here too! They’ve been very low key, able to get around without much, if any, attention, getting coffee together in the mornings, strolling around downtown undetected, enjoying summertime in Vancouver and it’ll be a gorgeous week ahead. Full Story
