This is Ryan Reynolds in Spain promoting Safe House with Denzel Washington. They’re on the press tour through Europe before the North American premiere. I’m told Ryan said a very sweet goodbye to his girlfriend Blake Lively the other day and that she sent him away with a care package that included homemade baked goods. Full Story

Speaking to a long-time buyer at Sundance as she waited for her flight home to Los Angeles, she said of the 2012 festival, “This was a weird year. There was nothing that felt like lightning in a bottle, and nothing that screamed, ‘Buy me!’ either. There was a lot of nice stuff, perfectly good movies, but I didn’t HAVE to have any of it. Full Story

Reese was green and sparkly with a new fringe. Mistake!In the film, Reese plays the love interest for both Chris and Tom as they attempt to blow each other apart to win her undivided attention. Full Story

Blake Lively girl drama

Sarah Posted by Sarah at January 25, 2012 17:34:43 January 25, 2012 17:34:43

I’ll admit up front that I’m not a fan of Blake Lively. So take all this with a grain of salt. I’d love to be able to point and laugh and go, “Haha, everyone hates Blake Lively.”But a development broke last night that had me thinking I might be too hard on Lively, at least some of the time. After all, for all her chicanery—the nekkid cell phone photos, the rumors, the uptradey ways with men—at the end of the day, I don’t dislike her so much I’d jeopardize a film project over it. Full Story

Gossip is a buffet and today we’re serving three entrees.Steven Soderbergh’s new movie Haywire opens this weekend. It stars MMA star Gina Carano. I’m not an MMA fan nor had I ever heard of Gina Carano until Haywire came about, so I didn’t notice anything wrong with the trailer until I saw on TMZ that Carano’s part—her ENTIRE part—was dubbed over in the final cut of the movie. Full Story

I know you’ll want to fight me when I say that I love what she’s wearing here, seen yesterday leaving lunch in Hollywood. It’s certainly not something that would appeal to my husband. Not at all. But then again, you know my thoughts on dressing for men vs dressing for women. To me, it’s a greater compliment when it’s coming from a girl. Full Story

Sundance 2012 Preview: Support these films!

Sarah Posted by Sarah at January 19, 2012 15:30:24 January 19, 2012 15:30:24

The top ten highest-grossing films of 2011 were all sequels/franchises, and two superheroes (Thor and Captain America). I don’t see that trend changing too much in 2012, but I do think that this is (mostly) our fault. People complained so much about a lack of quality at the cinema in 2011 and then the top ten backs up the idea that there’s nothing original or interesting happening in filmmaking, but neither of those things are true. Full Story

Is there a Hunger Games club you all belong to that I don't know of? Because I've received a lot of email in the last day or so with the same video link and even the same wording, from different senders (I think), about how a recent interview appearance in Australia has now convinced them that Josh Hutcherson will be a great Peeta, although one person did stress that he's sitting down. Full Story

You have GOT to be kidding me with Miley Cyrus

Over the last year I’ve seen several gossips—Lainey included—state that Miley “Smoke pot? Not me, never!” Cyrus has earned some affection by drawing down her public persona and making some effort at being a more mature pop tartlet. I’ve disagreed all along, issuing a strong BITCH, PLEASE caution to those jumping on the Miley train. Full Story
