And there is no pleasure in saying this. Because he’s supposed to be a sweet kid…when he’s not flailing his ego about and pissing on the movie version of the tv show that made him. But it’s true. Michael Cera’s Paper Heart ate it at Sundance. Touted as one of the most highly anticipated films at the film festival, Paper Heart ended up falling flat. Full Story

Suicide watch today. Because Rachel McAdams has a new boyfriend. It’s Josh Lucas. They were at the Purple Ball on Tuesday night not just holding hands but, like, neck biting. Neck biting in public means there’s a lot of sex happening. This is good news and bad news for those still holding out hope for Rachel and Ryan Gosling. Full Story

Am so not feeling Alanis Morrissette in OK! Magazine gushing about her 20 pound weight loss. Can’t put my finger on it but just isn’t sitting right. Maybe it’s because the styling is for sh-t. Who decided to put her in a long purple dress with those shoes? And those boots with the jeans are all wrong too. Full Story

Oh. Yeah.

They’re saying that 2009 will Taylor Kitsch’s year. God I hope so. It’s taken too long.

And, better still, that he’s not likely to go the Robert Pattinson-Los Angeles route. Full Story

There is a scene where Tim, the misfit, finds himself in a situation so uncomfortable, what he does will crush your soul for hours. Full Story
