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

Is that your ring?

Rachel Bilson shopping for groceries yesterday and while she kept her ring hidden all week in New York, she seemed to be flashing a very big diamond on her left hand back in LA. It was reported last week that Hayden Christensen had proposed, reps for both declined to comment, but it’s all adding up: the farmhouse + the domestication + the parents + the ring… Will it be a long engagement? Lately long engagements have not lasted… Anyway, the latest rumour is that the dress will be Zac Posen. Full Story

Bilson Vader

Page Six is reporting that Rachel Bilson was on a flight the other day and told a fellow passenger that just because she still looks like a teenager doesn’t mean she’s a child. In fact, she apparently said she’s engaged. Full Story

Latino Review has posted a brand new promo photo of Taylor Kitsch as Gambit. Hello! This of course is leading up to the release of Wolverine just 2 months away. Twentieth Century Fox is beginning aggressive promotion for the film this weekend on FOX beginning on Sunday with new clips and teasers designed to fuel frenzied anticipation. Full Story

This has to stop: the aggressive photoshopping of magazine covers – even for men! Yesterday it was Sarah Jessica Parker getting a computer face. Today, perhaps not so extreme but notable nonetheless, it’s Ryan Reynolds on the cover of Men’s Health. Something’s happening with his nose, I think. Full Story

If you wish it…

Dreams come true? Let’s not get ahead of ourselves…but at the very least, there’s a spark. More than a spark. Ryan Gosling and Natalie Portman! As I reported exclusively on eTalk last night, my sources say they met a few weeks ago at one of his DJ nights through a mutual acquaintance. Full Story

Pacey in polka dots

How cute is he??? Joshua Jackson hooked up with a fashion girl and since then, it’s been a wardrobe overhaul without losing his balls. I love. I die. His clothes, they always fit beautifully. He told me when I interviewed him at the Costume Institute Gala that when he and Diane Kruger moved in together he had to throw all his sh-t out. Full Story

For hire or for pleasure?

That Filthy Scab Pamela Anderson at a club – where else??? – last night in Atlanta. She insists she doesn’t get paid to show up at parties… so she flew across the country just to hit up a bar with some randoms? Needless to say, she probably wasn’t cranked out either. No. Full Story

Punk ass demode

It’s Avril Lavigne, punk ass little bitch in perpetuity, on set of a photo shoot yesterday appealing to 14 year olds. Avril is now 24. And this is her curse. She has not evolved with her fan base. Even Britney has evolved with her fan base. Or vice versa. Britney’s fan base aged with her, they followed her. Full Story

Man Skin

Ryan Reynolds at Vancouver airport yesterday heading out after wrapping on Wolverine. He had brunch at Sophie's Diner first. But that skin! Even he has to admire his own skin! Check him out checking himself out in the car window reflection. Maybe this explains the foundation issue? Because his natural skin is so perfect, when it gets layered with makeup it just looks extra extra pretty. Full Story

Michael Cera sucks

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
