So Lainey emails this morning to see if this is an article I’m interested in writing. Which is exactly the way it goes any other day, with any other article, except that the subject heading wasn’t “This?” or “Do you care?” The subject heading was “Anne Shirley”. Full Story

Marion Cotillard and Guillaume Canet were at Roy Thomson Hall last night for the premiere of Blood Ties. And I missed them! Etalk assigned me to cover Scarlett Johansson’s carpet instead, which we’ll get to later, but I felt this, I did. I adore them, I do. You know who else adores them? Or her? It’s Dylan, who shoots every live broadcast we feed into the theatre and would have been shooting Marion last night and thoroughly enjoying every moment, even though her dress is less than. Full Story

It was reported just a few weeks ago that Meryl Streep would not contend for Best Actress at the Oscars in March and that, instead, she would be submitted in the Supporting category, with Julia Roberts representing August: Osage County in the lead to take on Cate Blanchett, the current frontrunner for Blue Jasmine. Full Story

As mentioned in today’s open, Meryl Streep cancelled last minute due to illness. Which meant that Julia didn’t have to share. We lose for missing Meryl. We win when it’s All About Julia. But look at her. That’s a Movie Star. You are tired of me saying it, but she is a Movie Star. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

TIFF's artistic director, Cameron Bailey, had a great weekend. So far, almost all the "possible contenders" have delivered, the most notable being Steve McQueen's 12 Years A Slave, which now seems like a straight up lock for a Best Picture Oscar nomination, and could go all the way.  Read Full Intro

You should read some of the reviews for Diana. They’re brutal. Here’s a sample: “Poor Princess Diana. I hesitate to use the term "car crash cinema". But the awful truth is that, 16 years after that terrible day in 1997, she has died another awful death. Full Story

What I wrote yesterday about Charlie Hunnam’s decision to play Christian Grey in Fifty Shades Of Grey – click here for a refresher -- and whether or not it would be like Batman for George Clooney, a role he’d regret and have to make up for… It’s what Jake Gyllenhaal had to do after Prince Of Persia, which was garbage. Full Story

White House Down was not a hit for Channing Tatum. He and Jamie Foxx are in Europe right now trying to make up for some of those losses but it won’t be enough. WHD is Tatum’s first stumble after a series of smash hits. What’s his excuse? Will he have an excuse? Armie Hammer had an excuse. Full Story

Scarlett Johansson was in Venice today to promote Under The Skin. She arrived at the festival with her boyfriend, Romain Dauriac. They’ve been together now for almost a year. Look at her, wearing the f-cking sh-t out of those pants. In Under The Skin, Scarlett is an alien who comes to Earth to check things out. Full Story
