Dear Gossips,

Am writing from the Palais des Festivals in Cannes just after the Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps presser. In attendance: Michael Douglas (I was too afraid to look at him because paperthin skin scares me), Josh Brolin, Shia LaBeouf, and Carey Mulligan. She was luminous. Really, really, really delightful. The screening is tonight. Am so excited I can’t talk about it. Will tweet my activities this evening. Click here to read my Twitter posts later.

And you bitches need to stop sending me that Jake Gyllenhaal video. Because even though I’ve seen it several times already, whenever it’s sent to me again, I can’t help but watch it. And it’s distracting. SO distracting. Because he’s so quiveringly adorable. And I have work to do. And this is not productive.

It is however finally Friday. And if you do want to f-ck around at work today, well, the Jakey video is an option. More on this later.

Am blogging until the gala tonight. Have a great weekend!

Yours in gossip,


You look so great with Australians

And so happy. Last night you presented to Bella Heathcote at the Australians in Film 2010 Breakthrough Awards in Beverly Hills. It’s so rare when you smile and when you do it’s spectacular. Thank you for the weekend gift. And your short hair. And the way you’re wearing your jeans. I love it all, even though you are maybe a little too thin. Full Story

Russell Crowe has a temper. And?

Written by Sarah And I’m fine with that. Crowe walked out on another interview, this time with Mark Lawson from BBC Radio 4, while doing press for Robin Hood this week. This most recent incident is of course feeding his reputation for being difficult and mean. Full Story

There was a Lost event in LA last night building up to the series finale next weekend. I’m rushing home to Vancouver for it and I’ll also be live blogging about it immediately after. More details to follow. Several members of the cast were in attendance. For the purposes of this article, I’m referring to them by their character names. Full Story

Written by Jacek Christopher Walken was photographed in NY the other day looking…old (attached). I love Chris Walken. An amazing career. Wicked comedic timing. And he’s managed to stay relevant over a long period of time in an industry that quickly forgets and leaves people behind. Full Story

The Italian Queen tweets?

It’s not a verified account so we can’t be sure that this is indeed her. And Laura is feeding our tapes back to the studio in Toronto right now so I can’t ask her to translate the Italian. So I’ve no idea what the Italian Queen Elisabetta Canalis, better known as George Clooney’s girlfriend, is posting on her Twitter. Full Story

Emma Stone faking for the A

Written by Sarah The trailer for Emma Stone’s Easy A came out yesterday and I’ve been watching it on a loop for the last twenty-four hours. I really like Stone. Not quite girlcrushing yet, but if she keeps up being awesome I will be very shortly. Full Story

Jakey and the Russians

Jake Gyllenhaal was in Moscow to promote Prince of Persia with Gemma Arterton and Jerry Bruckheimer earlier this week. After completing their official duties, they hit up the club. And Jakey was promptly surrounded by the Russian club girls. The Russian club girls brought out the cutest Jakey ever. He’s a . Full Story

It was a nice surprise to show up at the Palais today just as Aaron Johnson was heading to the Chatroom photo call. He’s lanky and tall and rumpled and cute, just as I expected. But there’s disappointment too. Because she wasn’t with him. Or at least I didn’t see her. It’s not proper protocol at a photo call to bring your pregnant fiancée if she has nothing to do with your movie. Full Story
