And Ryan Gosling keeps texting me, it’s not even a decision. Automatic molecular reaction. I’m there. Sure…she’s Natalie Portman. She has options. I get it. But is there a better option than Ryan Gosling? Um. No. And please… Don’t say Robert Pattinson. Ryan Gosling >>>>>>> Robert Pattinson. Full Story

The pilot for Joshua Jackson’s Fringe was shot in Toronto. First season filmed in NYC. Second season pick up has been confirmed but now the show is moving to Vancouver where Joshua grew up. He’s coming home! Which means Diane Kruger will likely be spending a lot of time on the West Coast too. Full Story

Last night at the Ottawa Senators game – all eyes on the two blondes. Hilary Duff and Carrie Underwood are both dating players on the team. As you can see, Country Bitch, wearing a seven layer foundation dip (or maybe that’s Lilo’s spray tan?) knowing that she had some competition to contend with, tried to keep the scowling and the ducking from the cameras to a minimum. Full Story

I’ve lost track of what day this is. Every day, they’re all over my city. Brief recap of last night since you all probably need to know what Robert Pattinson was doing? Have heard from multiple sources that they went to karaoke after dinner. Great. The Twihards have a new favourite activity. Full Story

Both Hilary and Carrie are dating hockey players from the Ottawa Senators. Only Hilary is at least almost normal while Carrie should sit the f-ck DOWN. Hilary was at the game last night watching her man Mike Comrie’s team beat my Leafs. Must have been Spezza’s illegal stick. He floats and he crabs. Full Story

I have been begging, BEGGING, for 3 years for Taylor Kitsch to be recognised. It’s coming. It’s happening. Finally. Wolverine. But it should have been Tim Riggins and Friday Night Lights. Better late than never, I guess. Did you weep last week when Street and Riggins said goodbye? You’ll weep even more reading Scott Porter’s very candid, very thorough blog for EW.com  Full Story

Filthy Scab for Westwood

CAUTION: Nudity Vivienne Westwood showed in Paris today and sent the Filthy Scab down her runway in her clothing. Apparently during rehearsal Scabby was wearing a loose t-shirt with no bra and her tit popped out. Shocking. Unfortunately or fortunately, depending how you see it, Vivienne’s clothes did not offer such opportunity and this is why Scabs is as covered up as you’ve seen her, maybe ever. Full Story

Every comic book geek I talk to – they all love Gambit. I’ve never read one, I’ll take their word for it. Besides, I already know that Gambit is my favourite. Because he’s being played by Taylor Kitsch. Two posts in two days – yay! It’s a new series of promo photos for the upcoming Wolverine, very highly anticipated and featuring a double dose of Maple Leaf both from the Vancouver area. Full Story

Rachel Bilson and her betrothed Hayden Christensen spotted in Malibu yesterday after lunch. His legs look skinnier than hers. And she’s TINY. Ew. Anyway, Hayden and Rachel have been spending a lot of time in Ontario working on his farmhouse. Am also told that they’ve also been visiting local breeders looking for a dog that can herd all their goats. Full Story

Yesterday in Ottawa. Am told exclusively that Carrie Underwood accompanied her boyfriend Mike Fisher of the Ottawa Senators to the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario for a special visit, very uncover, very sweet. Mike loves the Lord, is actively involved in the community, and unlike many of his skeezy teammates with crabs, yeah crabs, is not a fixture on the club crawl. Full Story

Dear Malin, don’t be Kate

They are calling Malin Akerman the next Cameron Diaz. Malin is Canadian so we’re pushing her out hard. Landing the coveted role of Silk Spectre in Watchmen was a huge break. She’s also working on Vince Vaughn’s next comedy Couples Retreat and has several other projects on the go (many more than Jessica Alba and Jessica Biel!) that should keep her in theatres consistently over the next 2 years. Full Story
