Dear Gossips,

Am still buzzing from the Meryl Streep/Johanna Schneller night of girl worship at the Royal Ontario Museum on Wednesday night. And here are some photos from the event courtesy of the ROM. You’ll note the face. A face that’s been allowed to age on its own, without interference. Streep said it herself, of Botox, and of course her 4 words succinctly sum it up for everyone.

“It interrupts the energy.”


Small details keep coming back to me from the evening. Like what she refers to as “My Mythology”, the Meryl Streep reputation, the preparation, the accents, the character submersion…

She, in that way of hers, almost brushes this off too. The best technique, really, according to Meryl Streep, is to simply show up. And when magic happens it’s when you show up as a “blank slate”. This is why Madonna can’t act, see? Madonna overthinks it and can’t let go of it.

The Vanity Fair Portraits exhibit at the ROM runs until January 3rd. You’ll love it. I’m going again in November.

Friday – am back in Vancouver, Twilight exclusives coming up, and the most egregious case of Photoshop f-ckery maybe ever.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING CANADA!!!!!!!!!!

PS. I was rushing out of a meeting and checked my Blackberry on Wednesday. 2 minutes later, somehow my trainer Hayley managed to secure my commitment to participating in the Turkey Trot on Monday. The Turkey Trot supports the Vancouver Food Bank. See you there?

Last night at the Royal Ontario Museum, in celebration of the ROM’s Vanity Fair Portraits exhibit, Meryl Streep took the stage with Johanna Schneller to discuss “The Question of Celebrity”. 90 minutes of full-on girlcrush. WORSHIP. I met up with 2 friends afterwards and this is how Gabrielle explained it: What are you great at? The one thing you do that is better than anything else you do? Think about what it is and then know this – it’s still not as good as Meryl Streep’s acting. Full Story

That f-cking Shelf Ass had the temerity to put herself in the same sentence with Meryl Streep in an interview. Meryl Streep is too classy to care. But to quote Valentino: I would eat them! Meryl was in LA last night with Amy Adams for the premiere of Julie & Julia in which she plays Julia Child, with the accent and the quirky mannerisms, a third summer in a row that she’s featured at the box office, and that’s Meryl Streep – just turned 60 and, as she’s said recently, suddenly a box office draw. Full Story

She did. I know. My blood is boiling too. Shelf Ass Jessica Biel sat town with the LA Times to promote her gig at the Hollywood Bowl – she’s performing in Guys & Dolls and everyone involved in the production has been raving about her “silvery” voice, her range, her pipes. Full Story

So now she has one. How 'bout that whistle from her dad? She was asked in the press room about the criticism she's received from stoic Brits about the emotion she's gushed throughout the course of the season. Her response? I don't give a sh-t. If they can't be happy for one of their own then f-ck 'em. Full Story

She doesn’t have to. So she doesn’t. But she respects the occasion too even though this outfit is probably 20 years old and recycled from an awards show during the (to borrow from her speech at the Globes for her Adaptation win) Pleistocene era. Meryl Streep at the BAFTAs in sharp contrast to the other mature ladies of the night – Sharon Stone and Goldie Hawn – demonstrated another option for women who are no longer 22. Full Story

Awards season means the likes of Lauren Conrad are shoved to the side…have you noticed? It’s time for real stars, real celebrity, so f-ck off reality twats because Meryl Streep has just won a SAG. Wearing a pantsuit. Heh. Love that Meryl is never super appreciative. That she doesn’t have to be. Full Story

Anne’s double win week?

She and Meryl Streep tied last night for Best Actress. Anne looked adorably and appropriately surprised. Meryl didn’t bother to show up. She’ll be at the Globes on Sunday, she probably didn’t feel like leaving New York two days early for yet another awards show. Amazing. Early in the season, it was thought that Sally Hawkins was the front-runner for Happy-Go-Lucky. Full Story

Oh but those dumb Hollywood twats never will. Like…even her name kicks my ass. Meryl Streep. Meryl. Streep. We get assigned randomly on junkets at eTalk. If they assigned me to a Meryl Streep junket I swear I would flat out refuse. Why pollute her air with my smutty stank? No. Kramer vs Kramer was on tv the other day. Full Story

Meryl Streep last night at the premiere of Doubt, still dressed in character perhaps as Sister Aloysius, said to be yet another slamdunk Oscar nominated performance. Have you seen or read Doubt? What makes me worship her even more is her defence of Sister Aloysius. And how far she’s willing to go artistically in that defence. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

After seeing Helen Mirren in a bikini yesterday, my husband had to make room for her on his Freebie Five. It’s all about the silver fox and today more of the same.

Meryl Streep glowed last night at the NYC premiere of Mamma Mia. Am told she’s pretty spectacular in the movie too. Pierce Brosnan, on the other hand, well Pierce apparently tries to sing. And fails miserably. So badly that his hilarious inability actually becomes one of the film’s selling features, just to hear it for yourself. Snort.

Thursday – online all day, refresh often!

Yours in gossip,

Lainey
