I have been glued to BBC. Don’t lie. I know many of you have been as well. If only we could get ITV over here. ITV has the exclusive first sit-down interview and it will air at 7pm in London, 2pm ET/11am PT. Before that though there was the photocall and they did speak briefly with reporters while posing. Full Story

Porny paid

See? I knew it. I know her better than she knows herself. I know her better than she knows...anything. Here’s what I wrote yesterday about her pathetic engagement: You have two choices here to explain it: either that dumbass couldn’t wait to tell the world she’s not going to be left behind as a spinster or that dumbass’s opportunistic boyfriend exploited her at her lowest moment, proposed with a Ring Pop, and talked her into buying her own bloody engagement ring at Harry Winston. Full Story

Daisy

Before The Great Gatsby’s Daisy, Lisbeth Salander was the most coveted role for women in Hollywood. Carey Mulligan lost out on that part despite being considered an early frontrunner. She was a late entry to the Daisy derby, coming into the mix only after several other names had been widely circulated, including Blake Lively. Full Story

Not Daisy

It’s not like Blake Lively wasn’t given a fair chance. She was probably given an UNfair chance. After all, in comparison to the other actors being considered for the role – Knightley, Portman, Mulligan, Hall, Johansson – how, really, has she demonstrated she’s even in their league? But Anna Wintour loves her (more on this later) and her agent is working hard to convince people that she can do more than just mumble, and so Baz Luhrmann, he agreed to see her for Daisy in The Great Gatsby. Full Story

Princess Kate

Couple of weeks ago they allowed themselves to be photographed together in public in the same frame at a friend’s wedding. William who has been trained since birth on protocol was fully aware of what he was doing. Everyone has since been waiting for the official announcement which came this morning. Full Story

George Clooney’s SMA Chances

This was prewritten yesterday but I had prewritten so much I forgot to post it. Which in itself should be an argument against George Clooney. Like would I have forgotten about George Clooney 3 years ago? Anyway, here are George’s pros and cons. Arguments for: It’s George Clooney. It’s Mr Hollywood, Mr Charming, Mr Popular, Mr Prankster, Mr Everything Few can sell an obscure movie like George Clooney. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Today’s column will be very, very long. And yes, we will get to Porny’s engagement eventually. But first, it’s the annual Sexiest Man Alive handicap. Each candidate gets his own article. With at least 10 candidates to analyse, there will be several posts.  Read Full Intro

Marisa Tomei is allowed

Jacek and I flew to Toronto recently and watched Cyrus on the plane. By the end of it all he wanted to talk about was Marisa Tomei. I didn’t mind. She is crazy sexy in that movie. Crazy sexy. There’s something about the way she talks, a hint of a baby girl voice but not grating like SJP, she holds her body like you know there’s a freak underneath, and of course the face, perhaps not the most exquisite face in the business, but beauty doesn’t have to be intimidating, and oftentimes it’s the faces you find comfort in that turn you on the most. Full Story
