On Eat, Pray, Love

It was an audience full of Oprah. It was over two excruciating hours. It was a lot of Julia Roberts charm and sparkle. But not even she could make it work. I still find her irresistibly watchable. She lights it up like few others. She overpowers you with her... Julia Robertsness. And still EPL seemed so forced, so predictable, so Chicken Soup and dancing with your eyes closed on a subway station platform if that’s what moves you. Full Story

It’s all coming to TIFF

Holy. Sh-t. More TIFF announcements, more major additions, so many world premieres at this year’s film festival including the Midnight Madness line-up and more potential award winners to the schedule covering the entire spectrum from elder Hollywood statesman to dirty tramps and roughnecks. Clint Eastwood will be in Toronto with Hereafter starring Matt Damon. Full Story

Get Cate when you can

If she shows up somewhere, you post. It’s law. This is Cate Blanchett tonight at the opening of Osage County at the Sydney Theatre. She of course is the Co-Artistic Director of the Sydney Theatre Company with her husband Andrew Upton, a post she has just renewed. I mean...what else would she wear? You also take Cate when you can because for the next while she won’t be around much outside home. Full Story

More quivering Jakey & Reese during the holidays

Their films will be released a month apart but both during the award season and both with some mild award buzz... What? We’re adults here. There’s no awkwardness. There’s no competition. There’s only grace and dignity in Hollywood among ex-lovers, right? But first – thanks to all of you who’ve been forwarding it: the international trailer to Love & Other Drugs due out in November. Full Story

She came from Hilary Duff’s wedding

Is that why Jennifer Aniston wore a bridesmaid dress to The Switch premiere last night? I don’t care if it’s Lanvin. The way she’s wearing it she’s holding a bouquet and standing 3 girls from the bride. Especially with those shoes. Said it before, will say again, Jen has the worst shoe style for someone who claims they love shoes. Full Story

Jakey two for two

Second day in a row this week we’ve kicked it off with Jakey G. Seems unlikely that this streak will continue so we’ll ride it while we can. And Jakey has a new ride too. He went out for lunch yesterday in LA and parked his new bike outside the restaurant and the meter ran out and he tried to feed it but was issued a ticket anyway. Full Story

August 17, 2010 – Smutty Shout-Outs

Lainey Posted by Lainey at August 17, 2010 07:05:10 August 17, 2010 07:05:10

To Brooke who is housebound by pregnancy with a barking licking 3 year old and needs a crush break and photos of Tom Sturridge – I like the one in the bathrobe but I prefer the video from the Glamour shoot. Mainly I prefer it for Jim Sturgess but there is some Tom for you later on. Watch straight through though. Full Story

Dear gossips, The slow build to the dramatic boil of the Vampire hierarchy drama on True Blood this season has been crazy great. So crazy great I can’t imagine it can get any better. And I wonder about this all the time: how tv shows can blow their loads but still have something stocked in the pipeline.  Read Full Intro

Dressing for dinner...but not like Posh

Lainey Posted by Lainey at August 16, 2010 14:48:37 August 16, 2010 14:48:37

There was a double date that happened last night in London – RDJ and his wife with Jude Law and Sienna Miller. Jude, as you can see, was dressed for it. But not like Victoria Beckham. No one dresses for dinner to blind all other diners like Victoria Beckham. Not even Sienna. I didn’t marry a guy who enjoys dressing for dinner. Full Story

Salt fringe in London

Lainey Posted by Lainey at August 16, 2010 13:09:02 August 16, 2010 13:09:02

UK premiere tonight. No Brad, just a half Brange on the carpet looking slightly waxy in the face but so beautiful it’s stupid, even under that fringe. That sh-t is ... in between the mall and the trailer park. Like you know Alcide’s amazing crazy bitch of an ex girlfriend Debbie in True Blood? And she has that rocker skank from the small nowhere town hairstyle? The Jolie with the fringe isn’t too far off. Full Story

This is Lisbeth

So many emails about this and I expect it will dominate discussion tomorrow during our Weekly LiveBlog – it was the most sought after role in a long time, the one they all wanted, and now the American Lisbeth Salander has been confirmed: Rooney Mara. Who? She’s a young actress who’s just worked with David Fincher on The Social Network. Full Story
