Two days in a row of Ellen Page, love it. Love it even more because it’s with Joe. So rare the Joe candids. Ellen and Joseph Gordon Levitt were photographed yesterday in LA on the set of Inception. Joe has enjoyed a great summer. (500) Days of Summer has just surpassed the $25 million mark, now considered a major success, especially since the film’s budget was only $7 million. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Chris Brown’s lawyer performed very well on Larry King last night, non? After all, he did most of the effective talking for his inarticulate client, and aside from an innocuous little blip during which, oh, he might have giggled about that morning when he first received the phone call alerting him to a new celebrity client who beat down his celebrity girlfriend – these are laughing matters, right? – Mark Geragos was masterful. And Chris Brown needed him to be. Because Larry King, surprisingly, had him on the ropes.

Indeed, Larry actually pressed. He pressed him on the violence, he pressed Brown on the what happened, the why, and the how, and then he ran out of time on his conduct since, although credit him, he did make a pointed comment about how Chris’s joyriding on a jetski did not look good.

Clearly Larry does not like Chris Brown. He could barely hide his disdain.

But the ticker told the tale.

The ticker at the bottom with viewer comments, many of them disgusted, not believing Brown’s apology. But there were also those who have already forgiven, who believed his insincere babble, who are convinced he made a mistake, does not deserve the grief, and wish him well going forward. They are convinced of his contrition.

What contrition?

Last night was not about apologies, not about helping others, not about anything but promoting Chris Brown.

From his outfit (baby blue and styling is not actually understated, serious, or sorry), to his diamonds, to his mamma by his side and his lawyer calling him a “son” at the very end, it was a message heard loud and clear: I look good, I feel good, I’m still on top of the world, and you need to keep me there. Please don’t. Let this motherf-cker taste some sh-t for a change. Then we can talk about forgiveness.

It’s Thursday and Rocco is in the spotlight.

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

PS. This is for Stan. Remember the night my ass was hanging out going up the stairs and we stopped for “tea” at that Chinese restaurant and stumbled home at dawn? Will miss you. Stay in touch.

He looks…

Not gross. Can hardly believe it. Candid photos of Ed Westwick that don’t make me want to turn out the light. Shamef-ck? Is that really you? Your feet are not disgusting me. I don’t see your chest hair. What’s happening? Ed and Leighton Meester walked to set together continuing to shoot the new season of Gossip Girl. Full Story

Listening to Leo

LipGloss Zac Efron has maintained a very, very low profile in Vancouver while working on his new film Charlie St Cloud. Stays away from party places, is smart about his movements, and is focusing all his energy on his role. He is professional on set, rather aloof but polite, and eager to learn, clearly intent on modelling his career after his idol Leonardo DiCaprio. Full Story

Hugh Stahhhhh!

This is how my mother says “star”. All her friends too. Chinese people love putting an “ah” to every word. Example: What time is it? I dung lo ah. Translation: I don’t know ah. So about Hugh Jackman – he’s a stahhhhh. It’s Hugh in Tokyo promoting Wolverine today, delighting hundreds of screaming admirers who lined up to see a celebrity who never seems to fail his fans. Full Story

Does she speak to her staff that way?

Judge them on how they treat the civilians. Radar is reporting that Salma Hayek lost her tits last night because she could not get seated immediately for dinner at the Chateau Marmont. Salma did not have a reservation and when she was told that the patio was full she gave it to the hostess in Spanish, launching a diatribe that embarrassed her girlfriends who tried to placate her to no avail, calming down only when a table became available. Full Story

SJP and Cynthia Nixon are back at work on the set of Sex & the City 2. Today it was Kim Cattrall’s turn. She looks great. I keep hearing Kim’s voice every night this week during the US Open. Love watching evening tennis. And she’s been narrating these intro pieces including player profiles and opening sequences. Full Story

We missed you Ellen Page

Lainey Posted by Lainey at September 3, 2009 09:28:45 September 3, 2009 09:28:45

She doesn’t sign on to every sh-tty script that’s thrown at her. And she’s not a famewhore. And her fans are f-cking crazy. So we don’t see her very often. Only when it’s time to promote a movie. The movie, as you know, is called Whip It. Directed by Drew Barrymore, it will be Ellen’s first feature since Juno. Full Story

Ashley, Bryce, and what Riley did

Yesterday in Vancouver – Ashley Greene left town with her dog for an early Labour Day weekend. Huge suitcase. The weather is cooling. Perhaps a clothing exchange to bring back warmer items? The rains are coming. Sigh. Bryce Dallas Howard, all smiles, was also spotted out and about downtown yesterday heading into the theatre. Full Story
