Tom Cruise is back in New York, seen here today with Katie Holmes and Little Sci, pushing through some last minute photo opportunities before Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol (God that colon is so f-cking annoying) opens (in limited) tomorrow. See how skilled his security is? They do a great job of avoiding getting in the shot. Full Story

Her Majesty’s Diamond Jubilee is next year and she plans to spend it at home, visiting her people across the kingdom, sending out her royals in her stead to represent her in the lands of the commonwealth. (I wanted that to sound like it came off a scroll. Did it?) Prince Charles is off to Canada, Papua New Guinea, Australia, and New Zealand. Full Story

Click here if you missed yesterday’s article about why the self-described “aloof” Rooney Mara is so f-cking annoying. You know what that says about a person? The person who calls herself “aloof”? The person who calls herself “aloof” spends a lot of time contemplating her own perceived “aloofness”. Full Story

A couple months ago, Marvel Studios announced that Patty Jenkins, director of Monster, would be in charge of Thor 2, which was very exciting as it was only the second time a woman would be in charge of a superhero tent pole project (Lexi Alexander was the first to do so with Punisher: War Zone—this would’ve been the first time a woman was in charge of a superhero movie with the potential to actually be good). Full Story

This should be the motto of the Golden Globes. And if you’re here for the Gossip, that certainly works in your favour. Big ups to Kristen Wiig. Love that Bridesmaids was recognised instead of The Hangover. Love that Wiig was included among Best Actresses Comedy although, um, you can tell they were kinda stretching, non? When there are 10 total lead acting spots to fill, there’s a lot of love to go around. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Today it was the SAGs. Tomorrow it’s the Golden Globes. The Globes don’t mean much, no. But they will tell us who’ll be getting drunk on live television. As for what happened at the Screen Actors Guild Award nominations... The Help happened, that’s what.  Read Full Intro

Hot Harry is so hot to me that sometimes, when he’s being extra hot, like over and above his standard hot, I let out a gross pervy groan. I am not proud of this. But it is true. And it’s what I just did when reviewing these photos of Prince Harry at Ascot in May. Mostly because he’s being so f-cking cute with the dog. Full Story

One of the articles that elicited the most response all year - Duana’s piece, inspired by Blake Lively, on how Tall Is Not Cute. We heard from A LOT of tall girls that week. An overwhelming majority fist pumping in agreement. If you missed it, I’ve reprinted it below. (Also I just had to revisit the part where Duana addresses Sasha’s height. Full Story

I interviewed Melissa Leo like 2 hours after she was nominated for Best Supporting Actress Oscar. She was really, really lovely. We were at Sundance. She said she was on her way that afternoon back to LA to start getting styled. And then a couple of weeks later her Oscar ads came out ... Sarah, at the time, compared them to a “foot wound”. Full Story
