I have to begin by confessing that I have not read The Perks of Being a Wallflower. And I can safely say that I regret letting it slip through the cracks. Because if a movie this good came from a book, I can only imagine how transformative that book must be.  As a movie, The Perks of Being a Wallflower will go down as one of the great coming of age classics. Full Story

Ryan Reynolds woke up with a new wife this morning. His ex-wife Scarlett Johansson woke up to pictures of herself holding hands with her ex-boyfriend Jared Leto at the DNC last week. Scarjo’s rep says it’s totally platonic and that everyone should focus on why she was there and her speech and the President, but still, they were holding hands and they used to be lovers and so, of course, of course we’re talking about it. Full Story

If you were asked a year ago about who played the best game in the business, would you ever have thought that your answer might be Katie Holmes and Blake Lively? Blake Lively has a lot more game than we ever gave her credit for. How did she DO that? Blake Lively didn’t just punk Leonardo DiCaprio and end up in a marriage; what she did, like a proper CEO, was set a long-range goal with a series of achievable short term targets along the way. Full Story

Amanda, I’m sorry about Western. Balls indeed. A weekend of mourning would have been understandable too. But then, you know it yourself, something else will come, something that was more meant for you. George and Harry in the meantime are here for you by request. Of course CJ has been great. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

There’s a lot going on so we’ll get right into it. Between the DNC and the VMAs and NYFW and TIFF and Venice it’s just so much to know! Re: VMAs - since I was on TIFF duty last night, Duana’s covering the VMAs and those articles will be posted first.  Read Full Intro

Coldplay is also expected to perform tonight during the live telecast for Stand Up To Cancer, executive produced by Chris Martin’s wife Gwyneth Paltrow. Gwyneth is then due to be here, in Toronto, at TIFF on Saturday night. Full Story

It’s easy to hate on Gisele; it’s doubly easy to hate on her if you are a mom. She looks disgustingly great while she is pregnant and did a bikini photo shoot 2 months after giving birth to Benjamin. If I saw Gisele at the playground, I would waddle away in shame. And in case you didn’t know, Jessica Simpson is not a supermodel, ok? And that means it’s ok for us not to be supermodels, you guys! Are these our only options, Gisele or Jessica? Well then we are f-cked. Full Story

Of course it’s sad.   It’s never anything but sad.   Two people who wanted to be together forever don’t want that anymore.  It’s always sad.   But also, when I read about the Poehler-Arnett split, two people I’ve never met but, of course, feel like I would like a lot, I get anxious. Full Story

Anna Wintour’s the one showing some smile teeth...but are they friendly or are they grinding themselves down? It’s time to play our favourite game - drawing conclusions based only on photos, and this time, maybe multiple choice? A.Anna is drawing on every ounce of Britishness she has left in her, Dowager Maggie Smith styles. Full Story

Prince Harry will spend the next four months in Afghanistan. It was always planned that he’d be heading back out there. The timing though is rather curious. You could say that this was the intended schedule from the very beginning. Or you could analyse this sh-t to death and look at it like this: A. Full Story
