Kristen Stewart showed up at the On The Road screening in New York last night in a lot of leather and black eyeliner. Once again, an intentionally “unpretty” look. It’s their sartorial thesis for her, I guess: Kristen Stewart style, punk as f-ck. Some people could never manage - ahem, Ashley Greene - and some have the potential. Full Story

Daniel Day-Lewis was honoured the other night at BAFTA LA. Have you seen his acceptance speech? It was dedicated to Clint Eastwood’s Obama chair. The President had just won re-election the night before. Conservatives were in a tailspin. And here’s a British actor taking the piss out of a Hollywood legend. Full Story
I recently re-read World War Z to see if it was as good as I remembered. I hadn’t read it for a few years and I got to thinking—maybe I’m over-selling it, maybe it’s not as good as I recall. So I re-read the book, and then I re-read JM Straczynski’s 2008 draft of the script, and no, I wasn’t over-selling it, and it was every bit as good as I remembered. Full Story
Remember when Zac Efron fangirled Leonardo DiCaprio on the sidelines of Lakers games, trying to be cool in his hero’s presence, dutifully absorbing what he could of the Leo aura? Back then Zac was LipGloss, flopping his hair around his forehead, before he graduated to a cleaner cut for grownups. Full Story
The Vampire Diaries Season 4 Episode 5 recap I was watching something else last night when a commercial for The Vampire Diaries in syndication came on -- you know, just all kisses and quick cuts and good lines -- and I realized how much I miss Katherine. All that sass and a real willingness to get into trouble and curly hair. Full Story
St Andrews! It’s so lovely, St Andrews. We were there for 3 days last year to shoot pre-footage in advance of the royal wedding. When I came home I told Jacek we should live there for a while -- the dogs would love it, he could golf every day, and I’d eat haggis all the time. It’s a life goal. Full Story
To Wendy Z “Zippy” -- Happy 50th Birthday from Sue, your friend since law school who asked me to remind you of those glory days when you thought “drinking champagne out of the Stanley Cup at a bar was a normal thing that people did”. Dude, not for those of us from Toronto. Tamara! Happy 23rd Birthday! By request, here are Ryan Gosling and Tom Hardy to take you into your birthday weekend. Full Story
How long before Scarlett Johansson sets herself up with Nate Silver? While all you other blondes are busy baking cookies and cupcakes, Scarjo’ll be making intense nerdy conversation with the breakout star of Election 2012. What Silver needs though is a fame consultant to help him navigate his new popularity, particularly now that Hollywood will be all over him. Like an adviser who’ll be able to tell him why, of course, he should accept an invitation from Scarjo and why he needs to hit ignore on the phone when Ashley Greene’s name comes up over and over again.
Heading to New York today from Toronto and hoping for no delays. I’ve pre-written several posts and will resume as soon as I land. There shouldn’t be any interruption of gossip service.
Yours in gossip,
Duana left early this morning for a meeting and then I rushed off to the airport to come to New York so... We didn’t get to watch this new Les Miserables trailer together holding hands! We didn’t get to watch this new Les Miserables trailer together and cry! This time they all sing. Full Story
Judging by how close-up the shots are, it’s a set-up. (Lainey: it is indeed. These are FilmMagic photos -- and they don’t “pap”. They’re being sold via Getty Images as “exclusive coverage”. There’s nothing accidental about them. They’re not cheap either. Full Story

Foot dusters. I hate them. They remind me of those pink ruffled feather Christian Louboutins Carrie Bradshaw wore on the episode of Sex And The City when Miranda went into labour. That was, like, 10 years ago, wasn’t it? What is my G thinking??? Here’s Gwyneth Paltrow in London last night at the Gambit after-party to support her BFF Cameron Diaz even though there are no pictures of them together. Full Story
