SnapFace Renee Zellweger was at Letterman last night promoting her latest New In Town which, unfortunately, is getting totally eviscerated by critics. Add to that the fact that it’s Super Bowl weekend and Snappy’s chances at owning the box office on the strength, or weakness, of a formulaic rom-com (redundant?) are not good. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Another night, another tv show missed. Sigh. Can’t wait to get back to my DVR. Don’t tell me what happened on Lost! And thank you for all your messages re: Project Runway Canada! Am excited to watch online this weekend.

But do you hear that? It’s getting louder.

The Slumdog backlash is building momentum. Behind the scenes, the other films, the other studios, the other players, they don’t mind the backlash. But the backlash is there. With three weeks to go and Academy members voting in earnest, this race is getting more dramatic every day and there are, certainly, legitimate reasons for some of the criticism mounting for the movie. But it’s the coincidence or conspiracy curious timing of the attacks that is most telling. Click here for more on the politics at play. Thanks Katie!

It’s Thursday – am online all day apart from the speaking engagement at the Canadian Marketing Association this afternoon. So nervous. I’m a nervous vomiter. This might be too much information but if you’re reading distraction today, now you know why.

Yours in gossip,


PS. Posted late in the day yesterday – Scarjo’s massive ego, Granny resurfaces, and Size 2 Simpson. Scroll down to get caught up.

Thanks Anna for sending this. I love it so much. Have you ever watched My Super Sweet 16? There have been times when I’ve had to self flagellate in order to stop from wasting an entire afternoon on a marathon of 16s on MTV. It’s the worst! But fascinating as hell. The premise: rich parents plan the most ostentatious sweet 16 party ever for their kids, trying to one-up everyone else who’s ever been on the show. Full Story

Oh Mickey Rourke… He’s still a contender for sure for Best Actor but this… this is not good. So you must have heard by now – rumours circulated that he and Evan Rachel Wood hooked up after the SAGs. That they were making out and then disappeared upstairs. Ew. Of course everyone bought it. Full Story

Hot Dad not Brad

True. Brad Pitt is totally hot when he’s with his kids. There were some photos a while back of him with his boys Maddox and Pax in Venice or something… adorable. But he’s not the only one. The other ones are just underrated. Let’s give some love then to Liev Schreiber. Here in LA with his firstborn – so blonde! – hanging out having a man moment while mom presumably is tending to his younger brother. Full Story

Last October, Michelle, Duana, and I were on a coach heading from the train station to our hotel in London. By the end of that bus ride, all the other passengers probably hated us. I had my laptop open checking email and started raging at the Adrien Brody photo spread in Hello Canada. And then we all started shouting. Full Story

As I first reported (sorry about the gloat) in December, amid speculation that they would divorce, my Gwyneth resolutely refused to give up on her marriage. Full Story

So yesterday, Entertainment Weekly, after hearing from Joaquin Phoenix sources, reported that his recent rap journey is actually an elaborate hoax to be filmed by Casey Affleck for a mockumentary about celebrity meltdowns. Full Story

Yesterday it was Scarlett Johansson vanity singing. Today, it’s that Pipsqueak Justin Timberlake vanity acting. He sat down for an interview with Katie Couric to promote the Grammys – because only HE can increase Grammy ratings! – and they discussed everything from Timbaland, to Madonna, to SNL, to Beyonce, and yes… His acting. Full Story
