Back in March 2011 I reported exclusively that Jennifer Lawrence was the first choice to play Katniss in The Hunger Games. At one point however, they were also interested in Saoirse Ronan, particularly after her performance in Hanna (click here for a refresher) but that she would have to really, REALLY dazzle producers to take the job away. Full Story

OMG are you ready? Twilight 5 opens wide wide wide tomorrow! So far the reviews have been... decent? The movie is rating over 65% at this writing on Rotten Tomatoes although amusingly enough, even the ones who are coming in on a “fresh” ranking seem to amount to. Full Story

Gwyneth the Writer

Did she study under Dr James Franco? Gwyneth Paltrow’s first ads for Max Factor were released this week. The campaign features “7 looks”, the first of which is “the writer”. Gwyneth, the writer, wears a blazer and jeans, with chains around her neck, and some great looking bangles, surrounded (hilariously) by stacks of paper. Full Story

Leonardo DiCaprio was photographed in New York on the set of The Wolf Of Wall Street yesterday playing tennis and smoking cigarettes. He’s no longer the young thin-faced Jack Dawson of Titanic but in many ways, the reason we still see him that way is because of how he moves his body. He’s always had that awkward boyish gait. Full Story

Right next to De Niro, but I'll be hood forever Well if that’s the case, the hood is a lot classier than what might go down at prep school. Page Six reports that at a party the other night, when Jay-Z greeted Robert De Niro, De Niro bitched him out for not calling him back. Full Story

When Sandra Bullock and Matthew McConaughey were together, she’d always say they were “friends”. Not “just friends”, but “friends”. And still. Here are Sandy and Camila Alves in New Orleans yesterday on a play date. I love this. I love that this is possible. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

In his latest blog for the Huffington Post, after offering his Expert Artist Opinion on Denzel Washington’s performance in Flight and the film Sessions, starring John Hawkes and Helen Hunt, James Franco humble-brags about being nominated for a National Entertainment Journalism award for these vanity pieces in which he discusses, among other things, his advanced teaching methods and his love life, complemented by a photo of himself giving the finger. Near the end of his masturbation, Franco predicts that Gawker and the New York Post would not report on his nomination because they wouldn’t want to “publicize that an actor/Yale doctoral candidate” is receiving recognition for “something that they are doing themselves”. Yes, this is how James Franco refers to himself: actor/Yale doctoral candidate.

So, of course, Gawker answered. By reporting on Franco’s nomination and then casually but hilariously mentioning that other nominees include a PEOPLE Magazine writer who’s been recognised for a piece about How Kirstie Alley Lost 100 lbs!, and another dude, the sole nominee in his category, who live-tweeted  Whitney Houston’s death. Click here to read Gawker’s Franco tribute. 

Speaking of PEOPLE, the Sexiest Man Alive will be announced today. I’m on a 7am ET flight out of New York back to Vancouver, arriving at 1pm ET so I’ll miss the grand unveil. Several articles have been prepared overnight to roll out while I’m in the air and I’ll address the SMA after Smutty Tingles as soon as I land. Sorry for the inconvenience!

Yours in gossip,


Annie & Posh

Anne Hathaway hosted the Women’s Media Awards last night in New York wearing Victoria Beckham. As you know, Annie is on the cover of the December issue of US Vogue. As you also know, Victoria has never ever covered US Vogue. She has to settle this year for being worn by the current cover girl, though not on the cover then. Full Story
