Final press push in North America for Terminator Salvation in advance of its release this weekend. You have to wonder, the publicity/marketing/media strategy – what would it have been like had that tape not leaked? Anyway, it was Good Morning America today and he arrived with his wife Sibi. Sibi is always with him. Full Story
Ben Affleck has been shooting a movie in Boston. Taupe and their two girls have joined him. They say there’s a charity poker event he’s hosting with Matt Damon here in Cannes but last night Ben and Jen were at the Magic Celtics Game 7. I love these photos. Something about the way he’s holding her hand… it’s very sweet. Full Story
Summertime. You know she’s itching. And it’s been awhile. Or has it? Can’t keep track when it comes to Kate Hudson. She’s moved on from Owen Wilson – for now, again – and word is Manslinger’s latest conquest is none other than Alex Rodriguez, ‘roid monkey fraud. Full Story

Am blogging from Cannes after a Grey Goose fueled weekend. Epic party on Saturday night. Obviously Taylor Kitsch didn’t hurt. Details later. Laura and I have decided that free flowing vodka in a French castle is the only way to live. Follow our Cannes shenanigans on my Twitter here or click on the new Twitter icon on the navigation bar.
Everyone here is bracing for the Brange. Angelina is coming in for a quick carpet walk and hopefully some Pitt Porn. The Inglourious Basterds premiere is Wednesday, then Brad has two days of press ending Friday. Not known if she’ll be staying for the duration.
Elsewhere this weekend– Portman goes out of her way to put down Penn romance reports and Goopy supports her husband. Also… couldn’t resist… New Kids boat cruise! And yes, Twilight photos too.
Blogging from the Croisette all day. Check back often.
Yours in gossip,
Elizabeth Banks. See I thought she was a beige person. Not particularly exciting. But Cannes, Cannes brings out the real drama. And often the real bitch. So no, she’s definitely not beige. She just might be the next Sharon Stone. At the Grey Goose event on Saturday night… Have to describe the setting: So it’s a chateau. Full Story
They say there’s a recession but you wouldn’t know it here in Cannes. They say the studios have scaled back a fair bit. It’s my fourth year, so far it doesn’t seem so different, but then again, I’m not wheeling and dealing in backrooms. Whatever’s happened on the hustle however doesn’t seem have made a difference on the Croisette. Full Story

Am all for the New Kids, totally. But have to say, these pictures are a little embarrassing. Or maybe it’s just me. Apparently doing the boat thing is where it’s at these days. John Mayer, right? This weekend NKOTB launched their cruise in Miami, bringing back 80s cheese for photographers. Full Story
Coldplay performed in West Palm Beach, Florida on Friday and guess who was in the audience?
