So why is Kate Hudson in it? Fair question. But finally, right? Here’s Kate Hudson with Riz Ahmed in New York and brown hair shooting outside the Met yesterday. It’s called The Reluctant Fundamentalist based on the book by Mohsin Hamid which made the Booker Prize shortlist a few years ago. I would imagine she’s playing Erica? If you haven’t read it, I highly recommend but it’s super, super tense. Full Story

They’ve been buzzing about it for weeks but now that the first trailer for My Week With Marilyn has been released, the hype has become much louder. Could she go two for two?

Sandra Bullock and Usain Bolt were both at Mr Chow last night for dinner. Some people tried to suggest that it was a date. Apparently all they did was pose for a photo together inside. Hilarious, right? Let us not speak of what happened last month at the Worlds. Let’s hope that doesn’t happen at the Olympics. Full Story

You don’t have to be tall to work a pair of pants well. Jake Gyllenhaal is tall and he finds pants problematic rather often. Jeremy Renner is not tall and, well, here leaving the set of The Bourne Legacy yesterday in New York, Jeremy demonstrates that he can do pants super sexy. Also I love French bulldogs. Full Story

Kristen Stewart’s version is supposed to be. Snow White & the Huntsman imagines Snow White as a warrior princess, throwing down against the evil queen. So here she is, shooting in England today on the beach, leading her army into battle. Stewart looks comfortable, to me at least, on a horse, non? She’s apparently been training for months. Full Story

I kept meaning to write about this during TIFF but it always ended up getting buried. So you know Salma Hayek’s husband Francois-Henri Pinault fathered a baby with Linda Evangelista and now she’s suing him for child support because she says he gives his other baby, with Salma, everything and her kid gets . Full Story

That’s the rating for Taylor Lautner’s Abduction on Rotten Tomatoes. 3%!I don’t think I’ve ever seen it go lower than 5. I mean, I’m sure there are films who’ve scored less, and I’m sure you’ll know-it-all all over my inbox to prove it, but 3%, that’s quite an achievement. Full Story

Rachel will only be making a cameo in the film. Noomi Rapace is officially the female lead. And... um... good. Full Story

Love Vera Farmiga. Sometimes she dresses like a crazy person though. Remember this? Vera did much better on the cover of the new issue of NUVO Magazine. Beautiful. My favourite story about Vera is how honest she is about Up In The Air, specifically that she’d just had a baby before starting work on it and the studio called over - God studio executives are assholes - and wanted her to lose more weight. Full Story
