Who do you hate more, Judgy Moms? GOOP for her “A Day in the Life” working mom blog from a couple of weeks ago, or Amy Chua and the challenge to Western parenting that she threw down in her book Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother?

Scarlett is f-cking everyone

Lainey Posted by Lainey at January 27, 2011 09:44:09 January 27, 2011 09:44:09

Unfortunately this is the new reality for Scarlett Johansson. That every time she goes out with a friend, talks to someone at a party, works with another actor, it will mean that she’s f-cking him. When girls like Scarlett are single, bad gossip rates go way up. Earlier this week, Scarjo was linked to Saturday Night Live’s Jason Sudeikis, now that he’s no longer dating January Jones. Full Story

Multiple Italian thumb-up

I don’t think I’ve ever seen so many variations on a thumbs-up. And all delivered so enthusiastically. There’s the double pump, a double pump with a plié, a one thumb, a side thumb, two side thumbs, and a lot of amazing cheese… It’s never a bad day when Cavalli comes out to play. Full Story

WHO’s ELLEN???

Especially when Julia is around… It was Ellen DeGeneres’s 53rd birthday yesterday. And they made a big production of it on her show. Supposedly it was all a surprise; she didn’t know who the guests would be, only that each one would be a mystery. And then Julia Roberts came out first and it became all about her. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Paul Bettany is SO much better looking in person than he is in photos – tall, elegant, articulate, British, perfect. I interviewed him last night on the carpet at the Margin Call premiere. Did you know that the screenwriter for The King’s Speech, David Seidler, had Bettany in mind when he was writing it? See? Hollywood Sliding Doors! I really should start that section on the site.  Read Full Intro

Leave the lips

The photos really don't do her justice. This is the third or fourth time I've interviewed Demi Moore on a carpet. And each time it's pretty spectacular. Right now she's the thinnest I've seen her. Little little legs. And up close you can see there ARE wrinkles, signs of age. Around the eyes, her mouth. Full Story

Julia Roberts isn’t papped very often anymore. But yesterday, on the day her good friend Javier Bardem received an Oscar nomination for his work in Biutiful, Julia was photographed at the Sunset Tower. And she waved. Smugly. More so than usual. Because, as noted, Julia campaigned hard for Javier. Full Story
