Why can’t it be Taylor?

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

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…

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

In New York and on the cover

Ryan Gosling is sharing the cover of OK! Magazine this week with Robert Pattinson and John Mayer: Love, lust, lies. On the prowl with Hollywood’s hottest hunks. Oh la. People Magazine has a bestseller in its 100 Most Beautiful issue. Us Weekly scored an exclusive with a Jon & Kate reality tv scandal (that show is Duana’s dirty little secret) and the best OK! could come up with is a make-a-story about three dudes… Lame. Full Story

Hugh and Halle together again

For one night. After all, she was/is part of the X-Men franchise. So last night Halle Berry came out to support the latest installment. Besides, how could she deny Hugh Jackman? Here they are, reunited on the carpet, she gave him a big hug, and she did her best in a tight black dress to generate enough heat to deflect Mel Gibson’s mail order nasty. Full Story

Check out the Filthy Scab, looking freshly ganged, last night at the grand opening of the Sapphire New York at Gentlemen's Club and Prime 333 Steakhouse. Isn’t Scabby supposed to be some kind of animal rights activist? Well… she puts that away and gets on her knees when the price is right. Full Story

Wolverine World Quiveration

They had a contest or something and eventually Tempe, Arizona was selected as the location of the Wolverine world premiere. So the stars flew in last night for the carpet led by their sweet, humble, generous movie star leader Hugh Jackman who has literally travelled the world in support of this film, tirelessly, and not once has complained or faltered or seemed anything but enormously grateful for his opportunities. Full Story

Joshua Jackson’s Fringe has been renewed for a 2nd second and will move production to Vancouver, his home town. Joshua’s film One Week, a Canadian road trip celebrating Canada, made on a hilariously small budget, has surpassed the $1 million mark at the Canadian box office – a huge achievement. Full Story
