Josh’s travel suit

Lainey Posted by Lainey at July 27, 2009 12:06:38 July 27, 2009 12:06:38

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

Alanis in a groove

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

Sookie in New York

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

Ryan's summer hair

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!

Lainey Posted by Lainey at July 15, 2009 17:10:00 July 15, 2009 17:10:00

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

Canadian in Berlin

Lainey Posted by Lainey at July 3, 2009 10:36:00 July 3, 2009 10:36:00

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

At home on his Vespa

Lainey Posted by Lainey at June 30, 2009 08:46:47 June 30, 2009 08:46:47

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

Shelfy come running

You know what Shelf Ass Jessica Biel is doing, like, right now? She didn’t sleep, panicked as soon as she saw the photos after refreshing Gettyimages.com every 5 minutes, and probably booked the first flight from LA to NY… Last night at the CFDA Awards Pippy attended solo, hanging out with design partners the Lindbergs, his new bestie Anna Wintour, and oh yeah, the really cute Emmanuelle Chriqui too. Full Story

The Time Traveller Trailer

Lainey Posted by Lainey at June 15, 2009 13:50:24 June 15, 2009 13:50:24

It’s been pushed back time and again, now finally scheduled for the dog days of August, not usually the best time to release a film, especially since originally they had hoped it would be a Christmas movie… And the trailer has just been released. Bad thoughts. Looks awful. Again, in our little eTalk cubicle, Laura, Michelle, and Jen B were discussing this morning after all of us watched with a knot in our stomachs. Full Story

TK got the part!

As I mentioned a couple of weeks ago – click here for the article - when I spoke to Taylor Kitsch at the Grey Goose party in Cannes, he was hoping for some good news. He’d just come from LA, auditioned for what he called was something “HUGE”, and he didn’t want to say more because he was worried about jinxing which is why I wrote last time that he needs your good vibes… And your good vibes, they worked! Taylor Kitsch has been confirmed Full Story
