He hosted the Oscars, he promoted the sh-t out of Wolverine, and earned a box office win, then he went to Broadway and pleased them onstage too, and through it all, always a smile, always gracious, always patient, even when surrounded by paps and fans, even at the airport when his children were with him, Hugh Jackman never loses his cool, he is never ungrateful, and he never, EVER complains. Full Story

Molly S wrote to me last week. First semester law school, finals week. She gave me a list to choose from for a distraction: James Franco, Robert Pattinson, Jon Hamm, Hugh Jackman, Ryan Gosling, Cory Monteith. Ryan Gosling doesn’t get papped too often. But he must have heard Molly’s appeal. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

How come when Lady Gaga speaks with an affected British accent, it’s adorable, but when Madonna does it we roll our eyes? Am a little bit in love with her today after The Monster Ball last night. She is worth seeing right now at small venues and low-ish production value before she eventually graduates to big stadiums and less intimacy.  Read Full Intro

Ha. Ha. Ha.

Oh Shelfy loses another one. Natalie Portman continues to work, continues to land interesting scripts, while Jessica Biel, who desperately wants those opportunites, isn’t, doesn’t, can’t. Portman is currently shooting Black Swan in New York for Darren Aronofsky with Mila Kunis. She’s taking Hesher to Sundance – a film she produced – then a comedy called Your Highness with James Franco and Danny McBride slated for Fall, she’s confirmed for Thor (another role Biel wanted), and now it’s been announced that she will produce and star Full Story

Avatar is coming

The cast of Avatar led by director James Cameron has been making its way across Europe promoting the film overseas before bringing it to North American for a final push before release date. Avatar opens on December 18th, one of the most expensive movies ever made, and riding on a new 3D film technology that Cameron created… So expectations are enormous. Full Story

Only he can get away with it. No one tells Letterman what he can or cannot ask about. And while guests won’t always answer, he will always try. And be charming and funny about it. Which is what it was like last night when Kate Hudson appeared on his show and he deliberately steered the conversation towards ARod and the Yankees. Full Story

Emma’s blowout

It’s like she’s walking around with a wind machine today – this is Emma Thompson with fresh highlights and a great blowout in Spain presenting “Journey” an exhibition about sex trafficking. It’s our usual animated, amazing Emma. Love her so much. Emma can currently be seen in two films in theatres right now: Pirate Radio and An Education, two diverse roles, both brilliantly played. Full Story

Please don’t encourage him

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association. They are feeding Pippy’s ego and worse, they are giving him encouragement to keep acting. If you’ve ever seen him in a movie, from Alpha Dog to Edison to Black Snake Moan to The Love Guru, well you know. You know that encouraging him to keep acting is a disservice to the world. Full Story
