Tilda Swinton is shooting a film called Trainwreck in New York which is also how I would explain how her character’s been styled – a trainwreck. Tilda Swinton’s playing Jennifer Aniston. It’s hard to look at. I hate it. It’s making me grumpy. Toronto’s a muggy wet mess today. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

How do you think Prince Charles feels today? Spain’s King Juan Carlos announced this morning that he will abdicate the throne, stepping aside for his son Prince Felipe. Felipe is 46 years old. Charles is 65. And he’s been waiting …forever.

Then again, Queen Elizabeth is decidedly more popular – at least right now – than King Juan Carlos. People are mad at Juan Carlos. And they’re mad at him about money. It’s a lot harder to get over than being perceived to be “insensitive”.

Did you have a good weekend? Angelina Jolie had a great weekend. Angelina Jolie’s Maleficent exceeded box office estimates for a gross of almost $70 million, making it her biggest opening ever. So she’s halfway there. Halfway to what? Well, there’s also Unbroken later this year. And if she can mount an award season campaign on a drama, after Maleficent’s commercial success, it’ll be another one of those I WIN AT EVERYTHING moments that set her apart from everyone else.

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

Ryan Gosling’s Lost River was not well received in Cannes. In fact, they sh-t on it. Hard. I noticed too that it was men who were particularly unkind. Which kinda made me laugh. Ryan Gosling. That Guy. The Pillow. The one the girls want to hear right before they fall asleep. Are they tired of Ryan Gosling? Of how women sound when Ryan Gosling comes up? Was Cannes a HAHAHAHAH moment for them? Like, Hey Girl, his movie sucks! “If a $200 haircut and $900 shades were given lots of money to defecate on Detroit, the result would be Ryan Gosling’s directing debut. Full Story

Johnny Depp’s fiancée is currently shooting a movie in New York with James Franco, The Adderall Diaries. The story is about HIS character, obviously. They look like they get on well. Magazines keep putting her on the cover. With nothing to promote…except the fact that Johnny Depp asked her to marry him. Full Story

It’s been reported that Josh Brolin has been cast as the supervillain Thanos, first teased at the end of The Avengers, and who will likely be the main antagonist of The Avengers 3: Thanos, Finally. I can confirm that first hand—I heard this a few weeks ago, when it was strictly off the record. Full Story

So there’s a rumour going around that Blake Lively is being considered for Bond 24. I think STAR Magazine is behind. And I can understand why this would be an easy make-up-a-story for them. Blake certainly has the assets to be a Bond girl. And it would certainly get her some attention. But the right kind of attention? Blake recently worked on a film called Age Of Adeline. Full Story

OMG, Mom!

Angelina Jolie is …all of it. A true super star. Perhaps one of the last true super stars. A friend of mine asked me after my interview with her a couple of weeks ago, “Do the molecules in the room change when she’s in it?” Yes. YOU change when she’s in it. But for all that she is… is the Jolie also an embarrassing mom? At the Maleficent premiere the other night, when asked about Maddox walking the carpet on his own and becoming a teenager and starting to date, Angelina revealed that he has a girlfriend. Full Story

Brange at the Maleficent premiere last night. Sorry it took me so long to write about this. I’ve been waiting all day to buy those family photos – Brange posing with Maddox, Pax, Miss Zahara, Shiloh the Chosen, and Knox. But the agency is taking forever to figure it out. So we’ll come back to that in a separate post when they do. Full Story

Jeremy Renner’s juice

Over the last few years—2012, most notably—Jeremy Renner has risen from a That Guy character actor to an almost-bankable movie star. After a string of high-profile blockbusters, he’s been lying low, returning to the character roles that made his name in the first place in movies like The Immigrant and American Hustle. Full Story

This Is Where I Leave You

Who is going to go see This Is Where I Leave You with me? It’s kind of hard to know who to take. I mean, this is not The Hunger Games where the companion had to be carefully thought through and it’s not Pitch Perfect where basically, seeing the movie with me became the prize because I was so delighted with the whole enterprise that I squealed and giggled and chortled and basically it was like those YouTube clips where laughing babies make you laugh. Full Story
