Happy Birthday Denise! Rebecca requested for you some Matt Damon. Here he is at the TIFF presser for The Informant! the other day. He had an exhausting weekend in Toronto. Was promoting his own film, stayed up late to catch up with Clooney, One x One on Saturday, then One x One on Sunday with Bill Clinton. Full Story
The Jonas Brothers are in Toronto – they’re shooting some kind of tv movie in a small town outside of the city and come into the city on their down time. Everyone knows they’re staying in Yorkville. Everyone is in Yorkville. Yorkville is film festival central. And the girls have been stalking and chasing and screaming… So Joe Jonas decided to go running outside the other day, surrounded by security, accompanied by his trainer, past the patrons on patios sipping coffee rolling their eyes at his, um, commitment to fitness.

Thursday night to kick off Midnight Madness at TIFF – a screening for Jennifer’s Body starring, as you know, Megan Fox as a high school girl and boy murdering demon written by Diablo Cody. Starting with Diablo Cody… I had Diablo Cody fatigue after Juno. If I’m honest though, maybe it wasn’t Diablo Cody fatigue. Full Story
Get Access to the hottest rooftop party, Exclusively from Diet Coke® For the last 2 years during the festival, the Park Hyatt Roof latenight has been the place to crash. It’s where the Brange, after the Yorkville lunatic riots, sought refuge from the crazies who were begging them to bless their babies. Full Story
Was at the Jennifer’s Body Midnight Madness premiere last night at TIFF and ended up fangirling over Diablo Cody. Every girl there however was fangirling over Adam Brody who has pretty much disappeared since Seth Cohen. But they remember. And they went batsh-t. And he almost eclipsed Megan Fox on her own carpet. My impression on the tongue and thumb later.
So TIFF is underway, and all the fashion people are aflutter in New York and the MTV VMAs are on Sunday and it’s balls to the wall gossip to start the school year and during the festival it’s always party > sleep. Which is why there are even more typos than usual today. Have been guzzling Vitamin Water Rescue since I stumbled home not too long ago but please know it’s vodka blogging today. And probably will be for the next week.
Friday – am posting in between screenings and shoots and Clooney’s carpet and his premiere party and then the Artists for Peace & Justice event hosted by Paul Haggis and Olivia Wilde in support of Project Haiti. Haiti is the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere- a place where 250 children die each week and 80 per cent of the population lives in poverty. Click here for more information. Demi Moore is coming. I need to see that up close.
Have a great weekend!
Yours in gossip,
PS. Come visit our etalk photo wall at Teatro Verde. We’re there every day – today at noon Ben Mulroney and Tanya Kim will be hanging out and filming the show. TK’s wardrobe is crazy right now. Yeah I’m jealous too. On Sunday it’ll be Traci Melchor and me gossiping – we agree on nothing. Teatro Verde at noon. Join us and we can all talk smack together.
This day has kicked my ass so far. Press screening for Up In The Air at 11:30am, then shoots, then voice overs, and now am finally back at my laptop for a couple of hours before heading to Clooney’s carpets – this time for The Men Who Stare At Goats. Quick note about Up In The Air – loved. Full Story
Corny as this sounds, this blog would be nothing without you coming to visit every day. Some of you have been visiting for years. This is my 4th TIFF – thank you, love you, owe you for helping to make it happen. As long time readers know, it’s LaineyGossip.com policy not to keep event gift bags. Full Story
I'm about to moan about my tits again. If you don't like it my vodka says sorry. It's not like I don't appreciate a great rack - of course I do. If Salma Hayek wants to yell profanities at me in Spanish wearing just her bra I'm lining up. But there are advantages and disadvantages to full and flat. Full Story
More shoots = more Tingles Jacek edition. Lainey corrected me on my suggestion yesterday that Gwen’s hair is like my mother wore it. But what do I know about hair styles. More Lainey content to follow along with a kick-ass giveaway. Jacek.
