Dear Gossips,

Am writing this open having just come from the 830am press screening for We Need To Talk About Kevin. Maybe not the most uplifting way to start the day. Feeling very...unsettled. But we now have a major contender for the Palme d'Or.  Read Full Intro

Adele & Rachel peeing

Adele arrived in Washington DC yesterday to kick off the US leg of her tour. Do you have tickets? I HAD tickets to her show at the Commodore Ballroom in Vancouver. Bought them on a ticket broker site. It's a small venue, it was to be a major experience. But then, due to demand - and good for her but sucky for us - they changed the venue. Full Story

Don’t Know What You Got ‘Til It’s Gone

Written by Duana I really get prickly when people talk about ‘movie actors’ vs. ‘TV actors’. You can disagree with me and that’s fine. But consider this - how can it be considered more skillful to present a character in 90 minutes, supported by lots of sweeping vistas or explosions or fill-in-your-trope-of-choice, when they might have to maintain said character over 22 half-hours or hours – multiplied by several years? So let’s give the most praise to Charlie Sheen that anyone will allow, and say that the lead of a super-successful sitcom is probably working long hours. Full Story

Here's a movie you're rushing to see

There was a deal made at Cannes. The story: Two people start dating. She's slightly older. Then they find out she used to babysit him. This is supposed to be romantic AND hilarious. Really??? Apparently they think you would want to see this movie. I guess I might not be the best judge of what women do and don't want to see. Full Story

What catches your eye first?

The Hollywood Reporter's new issue features the Glee Season 2 finale in New York with exclusive access alongside the cast as they shot the episode. It's a long article. I gave it a skim. Enjoyed the part about the deal with the hotel and also what happens when they run long - costs etc. Glee is such a huge money grab for Fox, and still I wonder what their budget is. Full Story

So, I am looking for a one-piece swimsuit that is less speedo more milf and won't break my mat leave budget. Full Story

Being Bristol

Written by DuanaThat’s my pitch for the name of the new Bristol Palin reality show. Or maybe I’m being too on-the-nose. Maybe it should be something like “All For The Good”, since she’s working for a charity. Full Story

Rich, Famous, Herpes

Delicious. Not the herpes part, but the smuttiness of it. Obviously. So there's a story on TMZ about a major A list celebrity who is worth "in excess of $100 million" who hooked up with someone in Vegas and passed on some herpes. Jesus. Full Story

Colin Farrell goes full fug for Horrible Bosses

Written by Sarah Everyone is going to want to talk about Jennifer Aniston and her daring new career as a supporting actress in mediocre comedies, but I don’t care about that. That’s what Aniston has been all along, she just insisted on trying to be a leading lady, which she isn’t. Full Story

James & January?

Lainey Posted by Lainey at May 12, 2011 08:53:35 May 12, 2011 08:53:35

Received several panicked emails yesterday when I was out in the field about James McAvoy and … January Jones? There was no context so it was puzzling. Then I hopped on a computer at the Palais and read about Ted Casablanca's report that the father of her child was someone on the X-Men set … which… fine, I mean I'm still not sure why people care that January Jones is pregnant but sure, there are a lot of people on a set - crew, cast, studio, marketing, etc - and I don't doubt she could have hooked up with any of them. Full Story
