Opening performance of Twelfth Night to kick off Shakespeare in the Park, this is Anne Hathaway at the curtain call and then in gold at the afterparty. The gold isn’t so flattering, agree? Anne has received mostly solid reviews for her enthusiasm – am told she’s present, generous, and always prepared. Full Story
Twi-hards will know. It’s not like Robert Pattinson dresses with a lot of variety but they do have a very intimate knowledge of his wardrobe. They’ve memorised every thread. They’ve catalogued each and every day he’s worn a certain shirt. So it’s certain they will answer my question about this one – not the plaid but the bright blue, red stripe, and black with the grey sleeves. Full Story
It’s the show that launched the career of Slumdog’s Dev Patel but it also features young Marcus from About A Boy – Nicholas Hoult who plays Tony, a boy so manipulative, so devious, so amoral, and therefore so irresistibly attractive, he makes Chuck Bass look like Kevin Arnold. This is Skins, a show brave enough to make sure their lead character does NOT enjoy a fairy tale ending. Full Story
The LA premiere of Bruno went ahead as planned yesterday and Sacha Baron Cohen, in character of course, also stopped by The Tonight Show for a visit with Conan O’Brien during which Conan could not stop looking at his kugelsack. Bruno hits theatres July 10th but last night on Larry King, Morley said there’s some speculation that the film may need to be recut because there’s apparently a moment when Bruno punks LaToya Jackson into calling Michael Jackson, or something.

I love the 3 segment guest on David Letterman. My friend Gab and I talk about this all the time. Not everyone gets 3 segments. Only the very, very special ones get 3 segments. Like Julia Roberts. And Will Smith. And George Clooney. And Tom Hanks. And yes, Johnny Depp. He was uncomfortable, but he did it. Full Story
Happy 35th Birthday Jillian E in Bermuda! Has it really been 2 summers?!!?? Hoping you have the day off. And if not, hoping you can keep the bitchface to a minimum for the kids. I couldn’t! Say hi to Matt for Jacek! To Jasmine – Happy 31st Birthday! Sorry we didn’t get a chance to meet on Tuesday. Full Story
On Johnny Depp: after the Chicago premiere last week of Public Enemies, Johnny and others involved in production went to a steakhouse to have dinner in a private room. He’d been there before, knew the staff, has always been friendly. This time he left a $4,000 tip. Click here for more details.
So many of them are SO cheap. You should see the way they hoard their sh-t at a gift lounge. Like they can’t afford it themselves but they hit up the freebies anyway and then REFUSE to be photographed there because they don’t want to look greedy. But you are f-cking greedy. Who? Yeah you Audrina Patridge. You.
Johnny Depp skips the gift the lounge.
But Johnny Depp will be on Letterman tonight. He doesn’t hit the talk show circuit very often so you must not miss. Set the PVR. It’s worth it for a true movie star.
Thursday – am home after 2 weeks on the road and no travel again til at least mid-July. Blogging returns to regular schedule!
Yours in gossip,
PS. Bro Massage is not Adam Sandler and Rob Schneider. Also doesn’t involve Will Ferrell. At all.
PPS. Here are Kathryn and Sarah who won the NKOTB tickets last week AND a meet and greet with the boys. Said Kathryn: The hardcore fans are crazy though. One lady asked us why we had wristbands and then rubbed her hands all over us when she found out we touched them. Creepy!
Megan Fox brought her brand of low classy poor man’s Angelina to Letterman today and spiced it up with a little Dita von Teese. The Fox is feeling triumphant. Her movie, Transformers Revenge of the Fallen, despite getting annihilated by critics, just set a box office record for a Wednesday open. Full Story
News broke last week about Leighton Meester’s sex tape. While the video has not yet found its way onto the internets, several screencaps were released last week – the images are, um, extremely revealing – and a bidding war is said to be underway for the actual footage of Leighton having sex with a former boyfriend a few years ago.

I tweeted my Shia LaBeouf confession a couple of weeks ago. Something about Shia makes me quiver. It started on the way back from Cannes. Laura and I were flying back together and started talking about Transformers and Shia’s fame and what it was about him and Eagle Eye happened to be one of the movies available on the in seat tv so I watched.

Oh yeah it was hot. Sweltering. But it doesn’t sound like any of you let that stop you from enjoying the bar. And the free flowing martinis kept us cool enough to gossip. As Sydney wrote to me yesterday: “Who cares about the heat ... we just went through a brutal winter, we're supposed to be sturdy Canadians so I say suck it up. Full Story
