Why Gemma Arterton? Because we can’t see her bones. Can you say the same about 95% of other young actresses these days? Hell no. So some love for Gemma, yes? Yes. Gemma Arterton, who was in Bond for maybe 4 minutes, owned her curves in black at the BAFTAs. Gemma’s body or Keira Knightley’s body? Please. Full Story

BAFTA Youthful: Emma Watson

Emma Watson is 18. She looks 18, doesn’t she? She acts 18. She dresses 18. She moves 18. And while her dress is not my favourite, this doesn’t matter. What matters is that it’s appropriate. And she isn’t pushing 40. And she doesn’t look like she’s been passed around a frat house. Full Story

Daniel Craig presented to Kate Winslet because Daniel Day-Lewis is presumably busy still shooting Nine, the longest production schedule EVER! Not that in this case there’s cause for complaint. Because we should never complain about Daniel Craig. Especially not when he looks so great in his overcoat. Full Story

His usual charming self on the carpet tonight with wife Susan. They were super kissy face, lucky bitch. Seriously, for someone who abused drugs for so long, he’s holding up remarkably well…unlike Whitney Houston. More on that later during Grammy wrap. RDJ carries around a lunchbox with vitamins – no, like, real vitamins not “vitamins” – with him all the time. Full Story

BAFTA Blasé: Meryl Streep

She doesn’t have to. So she doesn’t. But she respects the occasion too even though this outfit is probably 20 years old and recycled from an awards show during the (to borrow from her speech at the Globes for her Adaptation win) Pleistocene era. Meryl Streep at the BAFTAs in sharp contrast to the other mature ladies of the night – Sharon Stone and Goldie Hawn – demonstrated another option for women who are no longer 22. Full Story

I love the BAFTAs. They’re so all business. It’s like, let’s get on with it, move it along, we’re not caught up in our own importance. And the feed I was watching was broadcast straight through with only one commercial break after the first hour. Maybe that’s why they sold their name to Orange. Full Story

What’s up Alison F-W? Asha says hello. And I say much love and thanks to you for introducing me to my American Jamaican sister from another mother. We must meet one day, all of us, to Save Jessica. And to Jennifer – good luck with Gimme Shelter, a fundraising event to help women and children break free from domestic violence, and find the promise of a better future at The Redwood Full Story

Dear Gossips,

After 30 Rock last night, there is NO reason why Jon Hamm shouldn’t be on the Freebie 5. His hair in the final scene, it was ordering me to put him on the list. So I’ve complied. Why can’t he be a series regular? Why don’t more people watch Tina’s show?

And yesterday’s article re: SJP’s face or, more specifically, totally not her face on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar elicited quite the response. Clearly we all agree – that image is computer generated. So whose face is it? Or whose parts have been added to Sarah Jessica Parker’s to create a new digital head? The popular suggestions so far have been: Katherine Heigl, Jennifer Aniston, Rebecca Romijn, and Bar Rafaeli. Time to vote, check the poll.

By the way, Nick Carter hasn’t completely rid himself of infection. The proof is in the video. See? Ebola Hilton is deadly.

BAFTAs and Grammys on Sunday! Double shot red carpet – Monday’s column will be LONG!

Have a great weekend!

Yours in gossip,


PS. Lily Allen is LIVE AT ETALK on Monday at 3:30pm! She’ll also be delivering her first Live North American Television Performance on Much in support of her new album It’s Not Me, It’s You (have you heard it? you won’t want to but you’ll love it. I do in spite of myself).
Anyway, Tanya Kim is interviewing Lily in front of a studio audience and you’re invited! If you’re interested, send an email to This is Lily performing at G-A-Y last weekend. Great body, non?

Good. If true…it’s very, very good. Radar is reporting that 2 nights ago at Crown Bar Hayden Panettiere and Jesse McCartney were mauling each other in plain view. She was grinding on his lap, then was nuzzling her neck, then they went outside for ciggies and made out some more. Full Story

Kate Winslet, Ralph Fiennes, and David Kross (he is so cute!) today in Berlin at a presser for The Reader. Have you seen it yet? It’s worth seeing, not only because Harvey campaigned so hard it took away The Dark Knight’s spot for Best Picture nomination, but because it’s a thought provoking, decent film. Full Story

This has to stop: the aggressive photoshopping of magazine covers – even for men! Yesterday it was Sarah Jessica Parker getting a computer face. Today, perhaps not so extreme but notable nonetheless, it’s Ryan Reynolds on the cover of Men’s Health. Something’s happening with his nose, I think. Full Story
