Here it is. The engagement ring Justin Timberlake gave to Jessica Biel. It has remained unseen for a couple of months. So why the underwhelming reveal now? These photos which include a very clear shot of the stone are exclusive to one agency which is usually the sign of a staged situation. I wonder though if they decided on this route because a better option with a magazine exclusively couldn’t be negotiated. Full Story

Does red improve her face?

Lindsay Lohan is back to red hair. It’s better, for sure, for her face. It almost mutes the sh-t that she did to it while the blonde was almost like a magnifying glass, highlighting the extremes: the lips, the cheeks. But is it enough?Is it enough to not be distracting?Is it enough to put her in a position of consideration for roles that are not “drug-addicted sister” or “hooker with a secret”? Is it enough to put her in the same conversation as Anne Hathaway or Jennifer Lawrence?To me? No. Full Story

God, how long has it been since I wrote about Britney? A while. Is it possible to have lost interest in Britney? I never thought I’d lose interest in Britney. But Britney’s last tour, the going through the motions of the obvious money grab... if there’s no passion from the performer, how can there be passion in the admirer? I need to believe that you want it if you expect me to care about it. Full Story

With Mad Men finally, finally at a reachable distance and with such a long time since we checked in with our crew at SCDP,  I wanted to remind myself where we are with all our characters. As always, I find Peggy the most compelling. Though she’s grown up over the past few years (we have no idea where season 5 would start, but I believe that birthday dinner in “The Suitcase” made her 26) she’s still an utter babe in the woods where navigating her career is concerned. Full Story

Yesterday the first image from Gore Verbinski’s The Lone Ranger was released, featuring Armie Hammer as the Ranger and Johnny Depp as Tonto. I texted Lainey that I was into it and she responded that she was over Depp and his overly elaborate costumes and makeup, and that she thought the photo communicated a lot of Try. Full Story

The Genie Awards happened in Toronto last night. Viggo Mortensen was named Best Actor. Of course he took the opportunity to show some love for his Habs. As always. And for Phillippe Falardeau and Monsieur Lazhar. I don’t think I have to say much more to those of you who are enjoying this? Enjoy!  Full Story

Dani! Happy 28th Birthday! And thanks for remembering about the Squawking Chicken. First time in London? OMG. I feel like unemployed and unattached might be the only first way to do London. Go say hi to Ffiona for me. And to M.A. who’s letting Dani crash - enjoy Jude Law by request! Goddamn he was pretty. Full Story

Starting today, I’ll be walking 8,000 steps a day for 8 days - which don’t have to be consecutive and are entirely arbitrary - to simulate and raise awareness for what a woman in the developing world experiences every day.  Read Full Intro

Here's Julianne Moore at the premiere of Game Change last night. I don't love how the black top is cutting her off. Game Change airs on Saturday on HBO and HBO Canada. I screened it last week. You need to watch it. Not because it's the best movie. But because it's riveting. Jacek and I were transfixed. Full Story

Gwyneth Paltrow opens this week’s GOOP by declaring that “I have never been much of a self-help person”. Really?Because it feels like there’s a LOT of self-help on her site…Maybe I can’t read.Gwyneth has recently read Conscious Loving. It was recommended to her by “basically the wisest person I have ever met”, so take your pick because she’s met EVERYONE, and she now, as a result of the Conscious Loving, knows how to take responsibility for “the difficulties” in her relationships. Full Story
