Dear Gossips,

I liked Cloud Atlas. A lot. Admittedly I was in the right mood for it that night, and I’d read about it extensively and even though, yes, of course, it was way too long, I thoroughly enjoyed the experience, especially the ambition of it.  Read Full Intro

Do you practise your smile? Like for pictures? Do you prefer yourself in pictures smiling with your mouth closed or your mouth open? What? You’ve never thought about it before because that’s so vain and self-absorbed? OK fine. The rest of us will carry on... I do the open-mouth with teeth but not super wide. Full Story

In Smutty Tingles on October 19 I wrote that I was “very curious about the box office for this Gerard Butler movie”. Gerard Butler makes a lot of movies. But none of his movies perform well enough to justify why he gets so many movies. Full Story

How bad is your passport photo? I’m only asking because no matter how bad yours is, I can promise you, mine is worse. It is horrific. Like… a Faces of Meth shot. I took it when I was 7-months pregnant, my face is splotchy, my hair is all thick and gross, no makeup and I got it in colour. Full Story

Jeremy Renner presented the Career Achievement Award from the Casting Society America to Ben Affeck last night. Affleck’s last two films have featured excellent ensembles, including Renner in The Town. Renner’s appearance in support of his former director coincided with the online release of the red band trailer for his upcoming Hansel & Gretel. Full Story

I’ve been watching CNN for the past 24 hours, which I never, ever do, but the storm coverage is dramatic and of course, there was the Ali Velshi factor. The surprising part to me was the political ad that kept running – every single commercial break. I forget that it’s standard issue in the U. Full Story

I hate haunted house rides. Hate them in that I always want to do it and then when I’m doing it I always want to leave. Is it a control thing? Is it because in a haunted house you don’t feel like you’re in control? I don’t know. Because I love roller coasters. And it’s not like you’re in control of a roller coaster. Full Story

The best Bond ever?

Skyfall is getting great reviews. Some people, prone to hyperbole, are even proclaiming that Skyfall is so great, it qualifies as the best Bond ever. They’ll be fighting over that forever. Let’s just agree then that Skyfall is better than the disappointing Quantum Of Solace and returns to the standard of Casino Royale which (come on, can we not fight about this one?) was awesome. Full Story

Kristen Stewart is the face of Balenciaga Florabotanica. Now the other half of ROBSTENISUNBROKEN Robert Pattinson has signed on to represent Dior fragrances. According to E!, it’s a 3 year deal worth $12 million, an interesting marketing strategy and one that clearly targets the female consumer for a men’s product. Full Story

Gwyneth Paltrow was in Spain for a day to promote Boss Nuit for Hugo Boss. She wore black leather at a photo call and then orange/red on the variety show El Hormiguero. Am underwhelmed by both outfits, particularly the bright dress although the shoes she has on with it are pretty badass in how they somehow found a way to class up Shauna Sand. Full Story
