Her dress at Vanity Fair – hated it. Ok maybe not the dress. Maybe just the way she put it together – the baby doll hair and the shoes are ass too. But who cares. She’s Natalie Portman. She’s smart and funny and informed and not a famewhore. And she’s still dating Gael Garcia Bernal. Since last year. Full Story

Dear Gossips, Oscar Morning. So there was so this pre-Oscar Armani party in LA last night and seriously…EVERYONE showed up. Like one big name after another: Clooney, Cate, Clive, Katie, Penelope, Mirren, Beyonce, Natalie Portman, Travolta, Mischa, Josh Hartnett…and the list goes on. Weird non? Katie and Penelope and Josh Hartnett in the same room? Definitely required delicate strategy but Armani being Armani, he pulled it off. Town is buzzing, everyone has arrived, and as of 5am Sunday morning, Britney was still in rehab. Small mercies. Big night tonight. Tune in to CTV or for full coverage live from the red carpet. And visit also for my Backstage Blog. Full report here as well some time late tonight, early tomorrow morning. All-nighter for the Oscars – totally worth it! Yours in gossip, Lainey PS. I posted on Saturday – scroll down if you missed a few entries. PPS. Quick Oscar factoid: mandatory formal wear for everyone. Journalists, publicists, technicians, photographers - everyone. Don"t you love Hollywood Pomp?

Natalie’s in town to hang with her man and to support friend Patrick Marber who wrote Notes on a Scandal and Closer, Gael is a judge at the Berlin Film Festival this year and despite her staged attempts at a Jake G hook up and the tabloids erroneous reporting otherwise, they are together and they have been together all this time…going on at least a year now, if not more, living together in Toronto last Spring when she was shooting Mr Magorium’s Wonder Emporium and romancing each other under the radar through the summer which (ahem sorry for the gloat) was first reported here and confirmed by Dustin Hoffman in a recent interview he did with Elle Magazine: I"ve just finished filming Mr. Full Story

Girlcrushing on Natalie Portman

I can’t say enough about Natalie Portman. At the premiere of Goya’s Ghosts. Simply put, she is perfection. Gorgessity. Every superlative applicable is applicable. And did you know that Natalie sits on the Harvard Committee for the Hasty Pudding Awards? Female recipient this year is none other than Scarlett Johansson with whom Natalie co-stars in The Other Boleyn Girl…so much for those reports that they don’t get along. Full Story

If you’ve read The Other Boleyn Girl, this photo will probably excite you as much as it excited me. The first production image released from the movie starring Natalie and Scarlett Johansson and just this expression, especially the set of her mouth, in my opinion, captures Anne’s state of mind throughout most of the book – manipulative, nervous, insecure, competitive, maybe a bit too pretty from how I imagined but still a wonderful likeness…I can’t wait to see it, in spite of the fact that they’ve supposedly drastically changed the script, WITH Gregory’s approval. Full Story

Natalie & Gael: not the “EX”

British papers and blogs today are reporting that Natalie Portman and Gael Garcia Bernal have reunited, making out publicly in a London club last night. Warning: gloating ahead. As I’ve reported all along, most recently on October 23rd, they’ve been back together for ALMOST A YEAR! So why is this news? Again – they rented a flat together in Toronto while she was shooting there in the Spring, she went to visit him in Argentina when he was shooting there in the Summer, and he was in Paris with her last month when she was in town for Fashion Week. Full Story

Do you like this dress she wore the other day to the Lanvin show in Paris? "Cause, um…I think it"s assy. Especially the droopy chest. And the old lady shoes and the old lady hair and the overall effect of looking like a 12 year old playing dress up. But that"s the thing about Natalie Portman, non? That she can look awful and still be gorgessity and I do worship her, I really, really do…and if anyone could wear Audrey Hepburn"s dress, it had to be her and while we"re at it - Jennifer Love Hewitt??? Do you remember that abomination? Do you remember how they shat on Audrey"s legend? What. Full Story

Brilliant Boleyn Casting

I apologise. I realise this means nothing if you haven’t read The Other Boleyn Girl by Philippa Gregory. But if you haven’t read it, you really should. Because even though it is a stellar cast, you never know what Hollywood’s bound to do to a book adaptation, no matter how tried and true the subject matter. Full Story

Dear gossips, Back in Vancouver, should be properly reuniting with the husband, but the Pitts had other plans. Smut reigns supreme – even tonight. Now how sad is that??? Just a heads up – you’re gonna hate me today. I gloat AND I sell out. Can I beg your forgiveness in advance? In today’s issue: the Pitts top the Beckhams, the Natalie Portman “I told you so”, Vanessa Minillo plays it right, beautiful Scarjo, brazen Lilo, my Gwyneth and my people, a retraction for Keira Knightley, and another change on the Freebie 5.

The British side of me knows that gloating is bad form and I also know you’re tired of me harping about this but would you believe there are STILL kindergarten gossips out there who insist on believing that Natalie Portman and Jake Gyllenhaal are dating just because they were “caught on camera” at the beach? As I reported several weeks ago and again on Sunday – Natalie and Jake are NOT a couple. Full Story
