Word is she’s negotiating for a part in the film adaptation, scheduled to begin shooting in the Spring in Chicago. Someone from Summit even tweeted that her involvement is confirmed, before pulling down the tweet later on. Everyone is now speculating on the role -- most think she’ll play Jeanine Matthews, the leader of Erudite who doesn’t have a huge part (in terms of screen time) in Divergent but shows up a lot more in Insurgent. Full Story

Ever since Disney acquired LucasFilm, and by extension the Star Wars franchise last fall, the number one question has been who will direct “Episode VII”?  Disney has already hired screenwriter Michael Arndt (Little Miss Sunshine, Toy Story 3, Star Wars VII—what an interesting progression) to work on the script, and now it’s being widely reported that JJ Abrams will direct the next Star Wars film. Full Story

Taylor Swift was white and plunging at the People’s Choice Awards earlier this month -- click here for a refresher. She worked a similar look last night in Spain at the 40 Principales Awards. And of course everyone is assuming that her low-cutness is a message to Harry Styles. Full Story

Pam! Happy 40th Birthday! Thanks for asking after Marcus and Barney. Marcus was actually named after Marcus Flutie from Megan McCafferty’s Jessica Darling series and Marcus Aurelius as Gladiator was on the weekend we met him. As for Barney, who is two, and very busy, and really annoying - he’s better now which means that we’ve all gone back to hating him. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Flu still. Worse today. So sorry about the inconvenience but it's probably best to stay in bed with a huge pot of congee to kill it before the weekend -- the SAGs are on Sunday!

Was I hallucinating or did they really give Mimi a bacon fantasy last night?

Apologies for the interruption in your gossip schedule. Be back in the afternoon if there's improvement through the morning. Otherwise tomorrow.

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

Dear Gossips,

I went to bed in the afternoon yesterday with a headache and turned on The Situation Room on CNN. Wolf Blitzer always makes me happy. It’s something about the way he shouts and also HIS NAME IS WOLF BLITZER. At least twice a week I need a hit of Wolf shouting and especially when I’m sick.  Read Full Intro

Jake Gyllenhaal was at Sundance yesterday supporting his mother, Naomi Foner, and her film Very Good Girls. Look at how cute he is, sitting beside Jamie Lee Curtis, videoing his ma on stage. Earlier during the festival, Jakey’s one-time BFF Matthew McConaughey was also in Park City. Remember when they used to bro-down all the time on their bikes with Lance Armstrong? It was 2006. Full Story

Here’s Harry arriving home today with his fellow soldiers. They were flown back to England, landing in Oxfordshire, on a Royal Air Force A-330 following a tour of duty in Afghanistan. As you know, Harry was gone for 4 months and loved the freedom and pissing out helicopters but maybe not the celibacy but that’ll change by the weekend when he resumes life on the club circuit. Full Story

So Shakira’s son was born yesterday (heh. Literally.) She and the father, Gerard Pique, have named him Milan Pique Mebarak (Shakira’s last name). First things first – Milan is a lovely name. I think I’ve heard of a girl with this name, but that’s fine with me – it sounds romantic and male in that soft way. Full Story
