Ben Affleck was out for lunch yesterday in LA with David Fincher. Was it a directors’ meeting? Or was it an actor meeting with a director? For all Fincher’s acclaim, it’s actually Ben who’s directed an Oscar-winning picture, and not the other way around. Se7en, Fight Club, The Social Network vs Gone Baby Gone, The Town, Argo – what do you think? That’s not a bad throw-down, non? Not a foregone conclusion either. Full Story

A sparkly Blake Lively showed up at the NY premiere of Turbo last night to support her husband, Ryan Reynolds. She wore Burberry and a fresh, dewy summer face. Blake held hands and posed with her brother and, presumably, his kids, but, as far as I can see, there are no red carpet shots of her with Ryan, which is so interesting to me, this Hollywood convention. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

My answer to the question “who’s been your best interview” is probably boring for most. It’s not Angelina Jolie or George Clooney. I always feel like it’s a letdown when I say Dustin Hoffman.  Read Full Intro

Elementary is shooting its second season premiere in London…which, of course, is where Sherlock is shot all the time, though that show has wrapped for series 3. Wouldn’t it be great if somehow Benedict Cumberbatch photo-bombed that set? Boy Sh-t! Sherlock Sh-t! Here’s Jonny Lee Miller on set today. Full Story

I am officially an old crusty c-nt. Because …I mean… I can’t with this. Can.NOT. How do we do when we’re dealing with a 12 year old? No one wants to be unkind to a 12 year old. Not even Alec Baldwin? OK, maybe Alec Baldwin. But most of us don’t want to be unkind to a 12 year old. Full Story

Ryan Reynolds has two movies coming out next week – the animated Turbo and RIPD with Jeff Bridges. He was on The Today Show this morning promoting one of them. Before the summer box office season began, many predicted that RIPD might end up on the bomb list by the time everything had been totalled. Full Story

Selena Gomez’s new album, Stars Dance, drops in two weeks. One of the songs leaked today. Love Will Remember opens with a voice message from, well, supposedly from Justin Bieber. It doesn’t sound like him to me but then again, I’m no expert on his voice, especially now that it seems to be going through his boy-to-man adjustments. Full Story
