Yesterday afternoon at Harvard. 5pm Entertainment Law. Special guest speaker is Bert Fields. Half an hour later, his most famous client walks into the classroom. Hello Tom Cruise. He explained briefly that he’d never had the opportunity to hear his attorney speak before. Then he took a seat at the back and played student during the lecture. Full Story

AskMen.com has released its list of Top 49 Most Influential Men of 2009. At the first position? Don Draper. Agree. AskMen explains it as follows: Don Draper may be a fictional character on AMC's Mad Men, but he's just as real as any other public personality you can think of. Full Story

Gwyneth Paltrow photographed in Paris today wearing a trench you want, don’t lie, presumably headed out of town back to London and her family after supporting Stella McCartney yesterday at Fashion Week. The coat, yes. And the bag too, right? G does look a little tired. Lovely, still, without much makeup, but also tired. Full Story

Travelling with the in-laws

It’s Becks arriving at Heathrow. With his mother and father in law, the Adams Family. As you can see, Becks is working a beard. Gross. And a hat that looks too big. Not his best showing. But Posh’s parents are babysitting him. Even if he was at his hottest, he still couldn’t put it to use. Full Story

It’s always a revelation when her pimp dad starts talking. Either one of her parents, actually. Because they live through her, and they suffer through her, and they famewhore through her. Even when she’s a f-cking mess. And she’s been a f-cking mess for years. So Michael Lohan spoke to Radar Full Story

Maggie's sateen jumpsuit

At the NY premiere of An Education last night, Maggie Gyllenhaal accompanied husband Peter Sarsgaard on the carpet in a black strapless jumpsuit. Not even my Maggie. It's Michelle's nightmare: talent showing lumps from the light. So she outlaws it when she's producing. At the Oscars for instance, she won’t allow it on camera. Full Story

Hamm & Dave

Jon Hamm at Letterman last night... Sigh… Dreamy, right? Hamm taped an interview that will air on Friday which is only around month away…from the Mad Men season 3 finale. F-ck. Why am I a downer? This is the downside of the cable tv series. There are so few episodes. We are forced to endure over 20 Ghost Whisperer sh-ts a year and a mere 13 with Don Draper. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

This weekend’s Saturday Night Live should have been the season opener. After Megan Fox’s lackluster and unimaginative debut (which, in her defence, isn’t entirely her fault) the writer’s came back strong, almost every skit was watchable, and though Ryan Reynolds is a douche, he wasn’t bad. Not bad at all. Unlike Madonna.

It appears we needed a reminder that she canNOT act for ass.

Of course it was titillating that she and Gaga were busting out and throwing down. Of course it was. But if Gaga, at this point in her career, has nothing on the Madge from a legacy standpoint, at least that bitch can deliver a goddamn line. Madonna cannot deliver a line. But Sweet Christ she will keep punishing us with her attempts .

Sooner or later Madge will itch to make a movie again just to f-ck our lives.

And one more note on Ryan Reynolds who, as already noted, performed well. But to borrow from the Governator on Weekend Update, enough with the girlfriends and the boyfriends and the husband and the wives.

Justin Timberlake hosts and Cameron Diaz and Shelfy make appearances. Megan Fox brings Brian Austin Green. Ryan has the “incredible” Scarlett Johansson.

It’s tired Lorne. It’s tired.

So unless is Brad is hosting and Angelina comes on for a Jungle Sex skit, please no more…

Monday – am working out of Toronto for the next few. Home for the Mid Autumn Festival (moon cakes!) and Dad’s birthday, and a shoot on Tuesday (squee!) and An Evening With Meryl Streep at the ROM on Wednesday. Johanna Schneller is interviewing her. I flew across the country for this fangirl moment.

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

PS. Whip It BOMBED this weekend at the box office despite strong reviews. What’s up girls? WHAT’s UP???
