And Evangeline Lilly could have totally been Angelina Jolie. This is what she’s telling Women’s Health. “It frustrates (producers) that they've given me this chance to become the next Angelia Jolie" but apparently Evangeline never wanted that for herself. Remember, this is also a girl who feels her beauty has always been a burden. Full Story

Scarlett Johansson. This time an album of duets with Pete Yorn called Break Up that was recorded before her Tom Waits f-ckery in 2006 due out on September 8th but the first single Relator is available today. Click here to listen. It’s actually. Full Story

Not together, no. But can you imagine? They were however both at the beach yesterday in Malibu. Spittle and his weird spittle mouth looking like he’s posing for the paps and the Filthy Canadian Scab in white, as usual, with the man they’re calling her latest – apparently they met at a deluxe trailer park – enjoying Memorial Day Monday. Full Story

She looked incredible at the photo call in the morning. Amazing. The hair! Will be copying the hair. Last night on the carpet – meh on the dress. Guess why? It’s Marchesa! And Inglourious Basterds has Harvey Weinstein all over it. Anyway, Diane’s profile has been pretty low key this week. Full Story

Ryan Gosling. Why can’t it be Ryan Gosling shooting in Vancouver for months on end? Have just squandered 15 minutes of valuable blogging time mooning over these photos – Ryan and Michelle Williams in New York shooting a tender kiss scene in My Blue Valentine. The way he’s grabbing her chin like that? He did this with Rachel McAdams in the Notebook too… A generation of McGoslings was born. Full Story

Christmas in Cannes

They say there’s a recession but you wouldn’t know it here in Cannes. They say the studios have scaled back a fair bit. It’s my fourth year, so far it doesn’t seem so different, but then again, I’m not wheeling and dealing in backrooms. Whatever’s happened on the hustle however doesn’t seem have made a difference on the Croisette. Full Story

Saturday night, Grey Goose party at the Chateau de la Napoule. A real chateau. Not some fake Adrien Brody upstate New York cheese ass girlfriend sh-t. Legit French chateau, spectacular setting. Grey Goose parties are the best. If you ever get invited to one, put aside everything and go. Be like Tara Reid and book on points. Full Story

Shame! She’s dragging her own luggage! Here’s Filthy Scab arriving in Frankfurt, in town for the opening of some new club. She walks the carpet, pushes her tits together, waves off a few interviews, and heads inside surrounded by champagne the rest of the night. It’s her sole source of income. Full Story

Do you feel ugly?

Are you bloated? Did your hair not work this morning? Do you have a pimple? If yes… skip to the next. Because you won’t feel any better about yourself after this. It’s Halle Berry and Gabriel Aubry shopping the other day and reminding us how ugly we are. Like, we’re ugly. Don’t get me wrong – self confidence is a good thing. Full Story

Last week, after Kiefer Sutherland decided to smash his head up against another dude’s face causing injury – in defence of Brooke Shields – a statement was released on her behalf that effectively sold him out. At the time, she supposedly announced via her publicists that she’d no idea why Kiefer would have reacted that way and that Jack McCollough, the victim of the headbutt, did nothing wrong. Full Story

Punk Ass like Porny?

A little, right? I smell some Jessica Simpson on Avril Lavigne…you? Porny would totally wear this tacky ass dress. She’d fill it out better up top but still, there’s an unmistakable trace of hillbilly trailer flavour here that has suddenly splashed itself all over Punk Ass Avril who normally walks around posing like she’s hardcore. Full Story
