TRON: Legacy premiered in London last night. Both Olivia Wilde and Jeff Bridges were there to support it. Also several members of the Glee cast. But no Garrett Hedlund. With movie budgets these days, overseas markets are a big deal. The UK market is a big deal. And for the film’s lead not to show. Full Story

Anne Hathaway and Jake Gyllenhaal spent the weekend in Sydney promoting the movie. A reader there called Aphrodite K hit up the premiere and wrote me the cutest email with her observations. Today, December 6 2010, I had my first (brief, glorious) encounter with Jake Gyllenhaal, more affectionately known as Jakey G. Full Story

I wonder if they get sick of seeing their own movie. Even if they love that movie. Even if it’s the passion project of a lifetime, I wonder if there isn’t a little fatigue about it, especially when we’re coming up on a year of promoting it. Like, everywhere.

Jeremy Renner arrived in Vancouver this weekend to resume work on Mission Impossible 4: Ghost Protocol, what a dumb name. Isn’t it? Whatever. Dumb name or not, I’ll probably go. It’ll be released next year, December 16, 2011. Tom Cruise wants a piece of the holiday box office. Right now though he has to focus on getting the film on budget and on schedule. Full Story

Over the last few weeks we’ve been discussing the American Express Canada “Potentialist” – a type of person who is rethinking what life is all about and who is finding ways to enrich her/his life through meaningful experiences.

Big ups to Canadian hero, icon, and all around badass Rick Hansen who was in the Middle East last week; it’s the 25th Anniversary for his Man In Motion World Tour (25 years!!!). Here’s Rick at the Terry Fox Memorial in Jerusalem.

In the annual recap of our best and worst gossip moments, it’s impossible not to mention Mimi. And several times. So let this be the first.

Steve Martin is an avid art collector. When he was filming in Vancouver earlier this year, he successfully bid on two Lawren Harris paintings at the Heffel auction. He wasn’t all look at my big celebrity penis about it either. Having said that, those two pieces set him back over $1.5 million. Maybe more. Full Story
