Get me to New York

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

Canadians in Cannes

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

Scabby on the hustle

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?

Lainey Posted by Lainey at May 12, 2009 06:26:07 May 12, 2009 06:26:07

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

Fence sitting Brooke

Lainey Posted by Lainey at May 11, 2009 12:10:00 May 11, 2009 12:10:00

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?

Lainey Posted by Lainey at May 11, 2009 10:22:38 May 11, 2009 10:22:38

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

Why can’t it be Taylor?

Lainey Posted by Lainey at May 7, 2009 08:43:48 May 7, 2009 08:43:48

Ryan Reynolds is getting his own X-Men Deadpool spinoff. Ugh. Why can’t it be Taylor Kitsch? Taylor only attended ONE Wolverine carpet – the big splash in Tempe, Arizona. Likely because he’s busy shooting in South Africa. Good for him, sucky asses for us. You all quickly came to his defence last week when I called him wee, arguing that of course he’d look wee next to Hugh Jackman and Reynolds. Full Story

Kiefer did this

Lainey Posted by Lainey at May 6, 2009 12:00:00 May 6, 2009 12:00:00

His name is Jack McCollough, one of the designers of Proenza Schouler. As you can see, he has a cut on his nose. He received the cut courtesy of Kiefer Sutherland’s head. After the Met Gala on Monday night, Kiefer was at a party talking to Brooke Shields. He claims McCollough bumped into Brooke and demanded an apology. Full Story

Can you do what he does…

Lainey Posted by Lainey at May 6, 2009 07:23:50 May 6, 2009 07:23:50

Ryan Reynolds? Ugh. Ryan Reynolds is getting his own Deadpool spin-off. Great. He has the body for it but does he have the attitude? Can he do what Hugh does? Because Hugh can sell a movie. He sells it wholeheartedly. He engages the fans, he works hard for the fans, he wants the fans to have a great time. Full Story

Coast to coast with Josh & Diane

Joshua Jackson came home last week to Vancouver. Spent some time in Gastown, visited with friends in Kitsilano, and had dinner with his lovely Diane Kruger at Opus on Thursday night. By Sunday night they were back in New York – see attached. Casual, chic, soooo pretty both of them. He is NOT given enough credit for his stylings these days. Full Story
