You know my favourite question: Coincidence or conspiracy??? As reported a few weeks ago, Jennifer Aniston is getting into the fragrance business. Her first release will smell like a combination of the ocean and her tears, unimaginatively called LOLAVIE. Because these days, Lola hasn’t been overkilled at all. Full Story

Angelina Jolie and the cast of Salt were in Washington DC today for the junket. Salt opens on July 23. I hear tracking hasn’t been great. But I also hear no one counts out the Jolie. And will the Jolie show up at Comic-Con the day before Salt hits theatres just to tweak the geeks? Word is Full Story

It’s her new interview with Parade. Parade is always safe. Parade is probably more safe than People. With Parade it’s straight up celebrity ass eating. Which is disappointing in this case because my Jolie is an asskicker who can more than hold her own in an interview and thrives on confrontation. Full Story

So the Eclipse premiere finally happened last night. And of course Ashley Greene, being the side player she is, did what she could to convince you that she’s a lead player, that she matters. Last time she tried to outdress Kristen Stewart and showed up like it was the daytime Emmy Awards – click here for a refresher Full Story

How was your Father’s Day? Did you call your dad? I called my dad in Toronto, promised to take him out for dinner when we’re in town next week, and had dinner last night with Jacek’s dad over proper Polish blood sausages topped off with a cigar. How did Keith Urban spend his Father’s Day? Well for Keith Urban, there was no Father’s Day. Full Story

Like Renee Z, Pippy also hopped on The A-Team promotional tour to accompany his girlfriend in Paris. Last night they went for dinner with friends, taking care to exit their car separately so as not to be photographed together.

Brad Pitt was spotted in Hollywood yesterday with a man who looks very much like Terrence Malick. Malick of course is the director of the upcoming Tree of Life starring Pitt and Sean Penn filmed like 85 years ago. They were hoping it would be ready for Cannes. Malick is still tweaking it. He’ll probably be tweaking it forever but now they’re hoping it will be ready for TIFF. Full Story

Tom Brady went to the Celtics/Lakers game the other night and his hair was styled like this. And then Renee Zellweger was walking around with Bradley Cooper and family yesterday in New York and she was modelling the same bowl.

Goddamn, who is advising Katherine Heigl on her wardrobe for Killers press? Terrible, terrible hair issues. Very, very serious. No one under 60 should be styling it this way. Ever. Heigl is in London tonight at the premiere of Killers which opened in 3rd place last weekend with$15 million despite some horrific reviews, as in 0% from top critics. Full Story

Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth are still together. Many of you attributed her extra grating behaviour in Europe to heartbreak following the National Enquirer’s report that Liam dumped her because of her family. The story was picked up online, and since Miley was touring overseas without him, this seemed to be all the verification they needed to call a split. Full Story
