If you hate Gwyneth Paltrow, and so many of you do (which I’ll never understand because what would gossip be with only Kate Middletons and no Gwyneth Paltrows?), this is your birthday. G appeared last night on the Red Nose Day special on NBC. She was supposed to be like some kind of action hero, jumping down from a helicopter, rolling onto the roof, and arriving on stage on a wire, strapped into a harness…. Full Story

This week the internet was scandalized when an Australian tabloid ran a story asserting that Rebel Wilson has been lying about her age and background since breaking out in Bridesmaids. Wilson’s age of record was 29, and she had at various points claimed to grow up in the “ghetto” with “bogan” (working class) parents. Full Story

Charlize Theron left Cannes to attend the Life Ball in Vienna on the weekend. I was surprised to see her there. Because, you know, the Life Ball, though important and for a good cause, doesn’t normally attract such A listers. It’s typically Hollywood Ebola Hilton. Or Kanye West’s wife. Full Story

OK so the fashion moment we were waiting for… Emma Stone at the Palais tonight in Cannes... And… Le sigh. Of course. She’s gorgeous. She’s wearing the hell out of it. She’s just so lovely. And I love how playful and fun she was, hamming it up for photographers. Full Story

A Friday wedding! I love Friday weddings! Probably because we were married on a Friday. Ginger Spice became a wife today. In a very conservative dress. A surprisingly conservative dress. First wedding dresses usually are. Also…um… maybe it has something to do with the gossip around the situation? Christian Horner’s parents reportedly refused to attend. Full Story

Back in 2011, when she was campaigning for an Oscar, I dubbed Natalie Portman “Natalie Never” because her combination belly-cuppy pregnancy and aggressive trophy hunting turned me off so hard I couldn’t deal with her at all. A proto-I Can’t Full Story

George Clooney handcuffed himself to David Letterman last night. To me, he seemed quite comfortable. And quite comfortable alluding to the fact that he was comfortable. And yes, as a favourite of Letterman’s, Clooney was a three block guest. Sort of. I mean, officially, he was a two block guest, but he pulled up a stool and stuck around for Tom Waits. Full Story

In February, I wrote about Beyonce and Jay Z’s new partnership with 22 Days Nutrition, and at the time I wondered why should the Queen be that concerned with her subjects’ vegetable consumption? I was also unclear on how much Bey and Jay would be a part of the company, and this new New York Times Full Story
