Baz makes Leo so pretty

Leonardo DiCaprio was never so pretty as he was for Baz Luhrmann in Romeo + Juliet. As Dean wrote last week when he eulogised Leo’s sexiness -- click here for a refresher -- that’s the Leo we keep clinging to, the one we see with our memories instead of having to look at him as he is in the real, now. Full Story

Duana and I talk about it all the time, as part of the “child of immigrants” experience. I’ve written about this already but the way we were raised, it’s jarring every time we see it. Because in our homes, there was no public display of affection. Maybe on your wedding day, but certainly not with a BOYFRIEND and definitely not at 18 and 23, what the f-ck? I still feel uncomfortable holding Jacek’s hand around my ma. Full Story

Cyrus Michael Christopher Dancy Weatherby George Dupree Took Great Care Of His Mother Though He Was Only Three This was the first thing I thought of when I heard the Danes-Dancy baby name.  Do you remember that poem from “When We Were Very Young”?  It’s always entertained me; the idea of a tiny boy bossing his mummy is amusing for some reason, immediately before it becomes pathological and strange. Full Story

As I reported yesterday -- click here for a refresher -- Blake Lively’s Martha Stewart Wedding wasn’t exactly as we expected. There are no faces -- not on the cover, not inside, nowhere. The only shot we get of Blake is of her hand holding Ryan Reynold’s and a corner of her dress. Full Story

Renee Zellweger and her boyfriend Doyle Bramhall II arrived back in LA together yesterday after a weeklong trip to New York. They were first sighted together last week on their way out and didn’t mind holding hands, even in front of the paps. Full Story

Elizabeth! Happy 40th Birthday with love from Christine! Are you seeing Les Miserables together? On Christmas Day? Let me know what you think! And for Rebekah -- Happy Belated Birthday! We must do this EVERY YEAR -- so next time, remind me earlier! Nothing can top Billy Mack but I’ve always loved Chris Martin’s version of Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas with, um, some accompaniment. Full Story

You can interpret that a number of ways… If you’ve been reading my blog regularly the last few weeks, you know that Blake Lively’s Martha Stewart Weddings issue is…like Christmas for me. And for some of you too. We can’t wait to see it. We’ve been waiting for so long, and she’s played us so beautifully, the magazine’s release is almost like a proper EVENT. Full Story

Tom Cruise was on Jimmy Fallon last night. They had a water fight. And he talked, again, about go-carting and motorcycles. It was better than the night before on Letterman, slightly, but Top Gun is still, these days, painfully uncool, “for real”. You know those commercials when they dress some dork up in a suit and he comes upon the cool kids all like, hey, yo, what’s up in the hizzy and I’m down with the bros? Cringe, right? You cringe. Full Story

Ben Affleck is in Washington today at a House Armed Services Committee hearing on the situation in Congo. He’s been advocating for awareness in the region for a while now. Did you ever see State Of Play? Did you find him convincing? I did. Very. And in real life Jennifer Garner would be so much more effective than Robin Wright because of the cookie-baker exterior. Full Story
