Tom Cruise the conversationalist

God that was painful. Just sat through Letterman’s interview with Tom Cruise last night. It was 3 segments which...if you’re familiar with Dave, you know, normally, only the veteran chatters, the good ones, they get 3 segments. Like Tom Hanks. Or Julia Roberts. George Clooney, Sandra Bullock, the ones who can play, and roll, and wit. Full Story

I like the red field

A new trailer for Star Trek Into Darkness was released yesterday this time with more focus on Chris Pine’s Kirk who must battle a new adversary but, mostly, his own arrogance. Of course. His family is at risk. Everything is falling apart. They must run through an awesome red field/forest. And. Full Story

There were two false reports of a split this year and, at last check over Thanksgiving, Stacy Keibler is still the official George Clooney companion, with all its benefits and accessories as rewards for not asking for marriage and children. So it’ll be her second Clooney Christmas, if there’s no change in status. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

So...Gossip Girl ends forever tonight; apparently they’re revealing who she is. And I still care. I care enough to come home from my office Christmas party, likely very messy, and watch the two hour finale. Or at least the last 15 minutes.

Is it weird that the cast hasn’t really been out promoting this? Does Blake Lively’s Martha Stewart Wedding’s special count as her promoting this? Pretty sure that’s not how she intended it. The issue is scheduled to be on newsstands a week today so... we should see the cover this week. Something to look forward to then. Something to be distracted by. If you’re looking for a distraction...

I’ll be here, trying. Like Ashley Greene. Or Angelina Jolie’s leg. She makes an appearance on the Best & Worst of 2012 List that begins today. But was it a best or was it a worst?

Yours in gossip,


When is your holiday office party?

Mine is tonight, and f-ck, had I known we could have hired Lindsay Lohan, I would have reduced the amount of appetisers, and spent the $200 instead on bringing in that loser for a song and dance and several hours of excuses. According to Page Six Full Story

Pippy glares

A relaxed-haired Justin Timberlake was in New Jersey the other day shooting Runner Runner. Remember when Pippy made a movie with Clint Eastwood and it went nowhere? Anyway, Pips seems to be glaring at the paps in a few of these photos, like they’re scum for shooting him on a public street, with him being such a private person and all. Full Story

Romeo Beckham for Burberry

Not even 10 years ago, the Beckhams were blamed, in part, for lowering the prestige of the Burberry brand -- they were associated with the “chav”-ness of the label and, rumour has it, for a while there, Mrs Beckham in particular, was banned from wearing it. Click here Full Story

Winona & Tim Burton together again...again

Lainey Posted by Lainey at December 17, 2012 18:17:17 December 17, 2012 18:17:17

They reunited for Frankenweenie earlier this year. And now, in a video for Here With Me, directed by Tim Burton, Winona Ryder appears as a mannequin come to life, a young boy’s desire. She’s perfect for the part, really. And the story is strange and oddly moving and sweet, in that weird way that Burton’s best work often is. Full Story
