Oh well now this is interesting... Two weeks ago there was word that Jennifer Aniston had a new boyfriend. She and Justin Theroux decided to have dinner where she always has dinner, were spotted by the paps, then People Magazine was all over it about how her friends love him and how happy they are for her. Full Story

She’s lasted a lot longer than a lot of people predicted. Oh you underestimated the Italian Queen. From the beginning she made it clear she was not like the others. From the beginning she declared herself to be different. And with very few missteps. Maybe just that time on Twitter when she hilariously compared Jennifer Aniston to Iggy Pop – click here Full Story

These shots were taken on June 3, 2011 in fair Verona, where we lay our scene. Jesus Christ, Leo, ARE YOU KIDDING ME WITH THIS????????????????????? So here they are, Blake Lively substituting herself in place of Claire Danes I guess, just 2 days after her “not her” nude photos were leaked online, seeming to enjoy herself immensely in the company of her new boyfriend, one of the most successful actors in the business. Full Story

His bike. Did she know that Justin Timberlake would be at the MTV Movie Awards presenting with Mila Kunis and spending the weekend promoting Bad Teacher with his ex-girlfriend Cameron Diaz?

LOVE THIS PICTURE SO MUCH! Jennifer Aniston showed up with her brand new boyfriend Justin Theroux at the MTV Movie Awards afterparty last night at Soho House. So they’re public now. Already?

Blake is more naked

Blake Lively’s publicist denied that the first batch of nude leaks were shots of her client. And there was a rather limp-wristed threat to sue too. Whoever released the pictures apparently wasn’t finished. Yesterday more images were distributed online, this time with captions, like a f-ck you message to Blake’s rep, challenging the denial, and providing even more “proof” that the tawdry shots are indeed of her – her tits, her ass, her body. Full Story

Prince William and Catherine are coming to Canada. It’s to be their first tour as a married couple. You know that famous shot of Diana hugging her boys, after not seeing them for a few days, she ran to them on that boat and embraced them enthusiastically? Photo here Full Story

Brange: Wedding for Oscar?

Forgot to mention that in Cannes, Brad Pitt did a lot more press than usual in support of The Tree of Life. Normally he bangs off a few major, major outlets – CNN and NBC for example – is VERY selective, and doesn’t bother with the junket style situation. This time? There was a full on rotation in there. Full Story

Well this doesn’t happen often… They papped the Brange yesterday running some errands. They went shopping at a place called Soap Plant. Quick, let’s google! Here’s what came up for me: Soap Plant / Wacko: The Premiere Pop Culture Emporium of Los Angeles (with) the best selection of books in Los Angeles, art and design, deviant literature, lowbrow art, music, car culture and uh, sex!! Plus a dizzying array of vinyl art toys, wind-ups and collectibles. Full Story

Brad shaves, Angie in colour

For her own premieres, Angelina Jolie seems to favour black. It’s for HIS events that she gets a little creative. Well, as creative as she can get, sartorially speaking. We’re not exactly talking about Kate Moss here. So it was a bright coloured Jolie last night in LA for the premiere of The Tree of Life which happened at the same time as the Kung Fu Panda 2 screening in New York. Full Story

Well, Terrence Malick won at Cannes. But there were so many headlines after the Palme d’Or was announced on Sunday that “Brad Pitt’s film The Tree of Life wins the Palme d’Or” you’d think it was actually his vision. Money? Maybe. He has a producer credit on the film. Full Story
