He didn’t cut his Ass Bangs

Lainey Posted by Lainey at August 25, 2009 08:03:14 August 25, 2009 08:03:14

Stephen Moyer was shot leaving a hair salon last week with a cap on – was hoping he had that sh-t cut off. Clearly he did not. The Ass Bangs turned up last night at the Nylon party – Anna Paquin covers the new issue. Anna, as usual, looks sexy and sweet. Stephen, while certainly an improvement on Bill Compton’s grey face and loser personality, looks ridiculous with the fringe and that earring. Full Story

Ebola wants Twilight

Lainey Posted by Lainey at August 25, 2009 07:50:33 August 25, 2009 07:50:33

As I reported a few weeks ago, Ebola Paris Hilton is guest starring on Supernatural. Not sure why the show felt the need to expose its cast and crew to that disease but here it is, arriving in Vancouver yesterday to begin work. Ebola is apparently playing a shapeshifter who shapeshifts into “Paris Hilton” and tries to kill everyone. Full Story

Anna & Dave

I have watched it 3 times. And it gets better and better. Like Airplane. There’s always some new amazingness that reveals itself with each viewing. Awkward but not super intense, both of them refusing to give, confrontational but not ugly – he asked what he wanted to ask, she replied the way she wanted to reply, and it was compelling the whole way through. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

It was a happy weekend for Harvey as the Weinsteins proved they can still play the game with a smart marketing strategy resulting in an Inglourious opening that saw Basterds exceed initial projections. Buoyed by strong reviews, without any significant first week competition, the film is now Tarantino’s best opening ever. Good Taste is not dead after all?

Debatable.

Heidi Montag performed at Miss Universe last night. They let that sh-t up on the stage and called it a performance.

No. Good Taste is still dying. And people still suck.

But Precious does not suck.

Precious has been screening for journalists in Toronto in advance of TIFF and the response has been universal, passionate support. Having already received overwhelmingly positive reviews after Sundance and Cannes, Precious will officially begin its Oscar push at TIFF, backed by the Mighty Opes herself.

Laura wrote to me on Friday after seeing it. Have never heard her rave about a performance the way she did about Mo’Nique’s. I can’t watch this f-cking trailer without losing it. Get ready for the Precious train.

It’s Monday – am online all day. Check back often and SCROLL down for late late day posts on Friday re: Gael Garcia Bernal and Twilight.

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

PS. We survived the children. We are broke but we survived. Took them to PlayLand on Friday. Veronica is 6 years old she went on the Hellevator. A free fall from a tower that Jacek is too chicken sh-t to try. And during arts & crafts time for grandma and grandpa’s anniversary, I discovered glitter gel. Duana pointed out that I was never a babysitter which is why I’ve never been introduced to glitter gel until now. Glitter gel is a clear adhesive sprinkled with a variety of different designs. I like the blue stars. Am addicted. Want to glitter gel everything.

Drama 24/7

It’s like energy. You give it off. You invite. Drama. Lindsay Lohan craves drama. She cannot live without drama. So drama will always find her. So her house was broken into again. Second time in 4 months. Her first phone call? Daddy. You know the father with whom she’s so close? The same one. Full Story

Routine Rehab

Well that’s a carefree way of looking at it. Am sure you’ve heard by now – Melanie Griffith has checked into rehab, the same facility where Lindsay Lohan and Kirsten Dunst and Eva Mendes received treatment. According to her rep: "She is there to reinforce her commitment to stay healthy. Full Story

19 & Perfect

Murder is making headlines today in gossip. Would like to balance this out with a little showbiz sweetness. Hello Taylor Swift. Taylor Swift is 19. Sometimes she looks even younger. Taylor Swift poses on magazine covers and still comes across delightfully fresh, unlike her mash mouthed Miley counterpart who has her father’s blessing when she wraps her jailbaity legs around a pole on national television. Full Story

Shia LaBeouf is now in New York to work on Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps. I mean really…has Oliver Stone run out of juice? Because that can’t be the best title. That canNOT be the best title he could come up with. Anyway, Shia’s co-star in the film, aside from Michael Douglas of course, is Carey Mulligan, who plays his fiancee and also Gordon Gecko’s daughter. Full Story
