Un-photogenic in Vegas

Lainey Posted by Lainey at May 16, 2011 08:32:39 May 16, 2011 08:32:39

Let's take a break from Cannes for a while and head over to Vegas, shall we? Charlie Hunnam hosted a party at Chateau at Paris (the hotel and casino) on Friday night. He's had his hair short for a while now, having just finished filming a movie during hiatus from Sons of Anarchy. It amazes me how un-photogenic he is in still photos, especially since, if you watch the show, I mean, Charlie, he's HOT. Full Story

SJP in Cannes

It was her first time at the Festival. This didn't seem possible. Sarah Jessica Parker was in Cannes with The Weinstein Company to do some advance promotion and sweet-talk some money people for her upcoming film I Don't Know How She Does It, based on the book of the same name. She told me she's never read a stronger screenplay. Full Story

For those of you who are new to the site, here's how it works on a junket: they put you in a waiting area, you are on rotation to interview the talent, you make your rounds from room to room until each one is checked off the list. You only move when summoned. There is an order about the process. At the Kung Fu Panda 2 junket last week, the attending talent included Dustin Hoffman, Jennifer Yuh Nelson, Jack Black, and Angelina Jolie. Full Story

Alexander Skarsgard is expected in Cannes for Lars von Trier's latest Melancholia with Kirsten Dunst. His girlfriend Kate Bosworth's name has appeared on virtually every tip-sheet for every party here so far. A tip-sheet is a list of celebrities that publicists send out in advance of an event to let you know who's attending. Full Story

Missing Jon Hamm in Cannes

I'm sorry, I was so caught up with Johnny Depp and the Pirates 4 press day on Saturday I actually missed out on Jon Hamm. Are we fighting? No, we're not. Because I know I deserved to be yelled at. Sometimes they just stack so many things at the same time, you have to make a choice. And on our show, we had to shoot Johnny. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

It was all about the ladies for me yesterday in Cannes. I attended the New York TimesTalk panel discussion on women in film featuring Jessica Chastain (more on her later) and several others positing on female-driven opportunities and stories in production today.  Read Full Intro

It's Friday night in Cannes and I have to get to an SJP event and then there's a party carpet we're waiting for access on and my thumbs are killing me from all this blackberry blogging. I know I still have my interview with Angelina Jolie to deliver and as soon as I get to a proper keyboard, I will put that down. Full Story

New life for Alex Pettyfer

Lainey Posted by Lainey at May 13, 2011 11:35:37 May 13, 2011 11:35:37

He kept sh-tting on Hollywood the last time we heard from him - click here for a refresher - but Hollywood clearly doesn't mind. Alex Pettyfer's career is not dead. But, interestingly enough, for a boy who was swaggering with a huge cock just six months ago and whose fortunes then seemed to fall very quickly because he kept tripping on said cock, his new lease on life comes courtesy another actor. Full Story

The Future?

Maybe that's a little melodramatic. But it's what I was thinking of seeing the two of them, Mia Wasikowska and Jessica Chastain yesterday in Cannes. Mia, as you know, is currently one of the most well regarded young actors of this generation. She's exquisite, and she's SO talented, and so many people know it already and she keeps working and working and working. Full Story

Skinny = Undouchey?

The Joaquin Phoenix who appeared in that hoax doc I'm Still Here or whatever was bearded, bloated, and vile. And tremendously unpopular. He might argue that "art" is sometimes not appreciated in its time but the fact is, no one got it, and no one f-cking cared. There may have been an excuse there about making statements about celebrity and fame and privacy - who knows? - but the undeniable truth is that Joaquin hasn't worked, properly, in something like 3 years and he still has a house, a car, food in the kitchen, and isn't about to get evicted because he can't keep up with the bills. Full Story
