Dear Gossips,

Harry Potter, Bill Nighy, great food at Frank, sequins, socks, and accessories at Topshop, skinny jeans at Uniqlo, a great travel sweater on sale at Ted Baker…five days in New York could not have been more fun. Except when I arrived at the airport on Sunday afternoon, they told me my flight was cancelled. Oh. Poor me, stuck here.

So if you’re reading this on Monday morning, I’m most likely on a plane, headed back to Vancouver. Straight from the airport, I’m heading directly to a shoot – and even Jacek can’t wait for this one: will be demo’ing EA’s new games, and going head to head against Venus Williams and Dwight Howard. Will need some Felix Felicitas.

As such, am pre-writing the first part of today’s column to be posted while I’m en route, and will continue blogging when the shoot is over. Articles will include thoughts on Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince and my interviews with the HP cast from Friday. Also… meeting Bill Nighy. I am in love.

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

In Vancouver! Thanks to Andrea for the photo – an exclusive shot of Zac Efron arriving in Vancouver on Saturday. Lippy is in town to shoot The Death and Life of Charlie St Cloud for the summer until the fall. Which means his LipGloss contingent will go head to head against Robert Pattinson and the vampires when they return to Vancouver in August to work on Eclipse. Full Story

Karl: surrounded by young hotness

It’s been a day. Am still sick, dog tired, but a little Karl to bring things to a close makes everything worthwhile. This is Karl the other day in St Tropez. It’s summertime. And he’s wearing long sleeves and those leather gloves. Apparently Karl has not only successful controlled his appetite, he also has blocked his sweat glands. Full Story

They both needed it

As mentioned last week, Pipsqueak made the final three on the shortlist for the Green Lantern. The role, confirmed on Friday, eventually went to Ryan Reynolds. Several weeks ago, it was reported that his Shelf Ass Jessica Biel was a finalist for the love interest in the upcoming big budget Thor directed by Kenneth Branagh. Full Story

Here come the pants

Oh no. Oh girl, oh no. I am still not Jessica Simpson’s friend. Neither are you. So we can’t help her. And she will need help. A LOT of help. People.com is reporting that she’s been dumped by Tony Romo again. Full Story

Angie on the move

Angelina Jolie was photographed yesterday leaving the Raffles hotel driving away on her own. They move around a lot more independently in LA. Yesterday was also the Holy Twins' first birthday, already a year since the frenzy surrounding their arrival but months since we've seen them, prompting sketchy reports about health issues other dubious claims. Full Story

Be nice like Hugh

Am sure by now you’ve heard the news that Ryan Reynolds has beat out Pips Timberlake and Bradley Cooper to play the Green Lantern. Ugh. Extremely UNimaginative casting, non? This of course will give Ryan more reason to moan and groan about being famous and harassed by fans. Because he continues to choose roles that are completely independent of a fan base, right? You want to be a superhero? You want that movie to sell? It means you shake a lot of hands and kiss a lot of babies. Full Story

Beckhams back to Hollywood!

They must have been rushed for their flight. David and Victoria at Heathrow on Friday head back to LA as Becks rejoins the Galaxy. Check it, and hold on to your concrete tits, because Posh appears to be wearing very, very, VERY little makeup. …the f-ck? I’m telling you. It must have been a tight flight. Full Story

An afternoon with the Potter kids

Lainey Posted by Lainey at July 13, 2009 06:53:00 July 13, 2009 06:53:00

Let’s start with Bonnie Wright. She’s tiny. Was wearing flats, as was I, and we’re the same height, only she’s thinner, though not unhealthy. Very still, small movements, extremely articulate, quite reserved. Funnily enough, it’s the Weasleys with the low energy, and Harry and Hermione who are much more animated. Full Story
