It’s our favourite game, making assumptions based only on a photo. Last night the cast of The Social Network was named Best Ensemble at the Hollywood Awards. Look at them onstage. Why is Andrew Garfield way down to the side while Pippy is up front with Jesse Eisenberg eating up all the glory? Seems like Jesse wants to tell JT to Sit DOWN too. Full Story

Sexy or Try?

Demi Moore showed up at the Glamour Reel Moments event last night in LA looking very beautiful, extra skinny, and showing some string bra. Sexy? Or Try? I want to defend the woman in her 40s who wants to do and wear whatever the f-ck she wants without being restricted by a subtitle that reads “I’m a mother”. Full Story

Rebranding I Love You Phillip Morris

It’s taken forever to release this movie. For obvious reasons. Because homosexuals are still denied equal rights in too many parts of the world. Finally however I Love You Phillip Morris will hit theatres in New York, LA, and San Francisco on December 3 and then go wide through the rest of the month. Full Story

So I guess they’re not getting back together then? Two days ago she announced they were separated. Today it’s been confirmed that Christina Aguilera has filed for divorce from Jordan Bratman. And then she took her kid to the pumpkin patch. There are photos. Oh this can only mean some sh-t is about to go down. Full Story

First up, click here. You need to spend a few minutes there. It’s the Brange and their children and what’s evidently their morning routine at their residence in Hungary, corralling their children in the yard as Brad Pitt enjoys his morning coffee in a bathrobe and silk pyjama bottoms. Full Story

Celebrity marriage is taking a beating this week. Laura Dern and Ben Harper, Cox-Arquette, Christina Aguilera, all over and done. A friend of mine emailed this morning wondering if Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale could be next. What? You’ve heard about his admission in Details Magazine, haven’t you? Boy George has been saying forever that Rossdale had a relationship with cross-dressing artist Marilyn many years ago. Full Story

Cox & Arquette: Coincidence or Conspiracy?

It’s one of my favourite questions. As you now know, they announced a “trial separation” yesterday that’s actually been in effect for months. Something about trying to discover each other, themselves, and boundaries. It was written by a therapist and vetted by a publicist and the timing is curious on more than one level. Full Story

Princess Asstalk on “Tone”

The Hollywood Reporter is predicting that Katherine Heigl’s Life As We Know It will win the box office this weekend. Naturally the critics are sh-tting on it. But still some seem to think that it can take down The Social Network, a film that’s being called the Citizen Kane of our time. Full Story

Kate Beckinsale’s wise decision

Written by Sarah Underworld 4 was announced as a go yesterday, with Kate Beckinsale returning as ass-kicking vampire Selene. Production is slated for March 2011 in Vancouver and Kate’s husband Len Wiseman is producing, but he is currently hunting for a director so he won’t be helming the project. Full Story

He can’t be a cheater if his hand is on her knee

The hand on the thigh move is a Beckham favourite too. Amid allegations that he’s been unfaithful, Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore turned up in New York today at the press conference to launch the Real Men Campaign to Help End Child Slavery during the 2010 Clinton Global Initiative. Big bonus points for showing up, fulfilling their obligations, in spite of the scandal that surrounds them. Full Story
