After spending several months in London shooting the Prince of Persia, Jake Gyllenhaal was home with Reese Witherspoon this weekend looking relaxed and relieved too. They made it work through a summer apart – my sources say they promised each other they wouldn’t go more than 2 weeks without seeing each other, which of course involved Reese flying to visit Jakey undercover every fortnight.

Kick off a new week with a little Viggo delight. Here he is in Rome for the Rome International Film Festival promoting Appaloosa which was well received enough but for Renee Zellweger who, terribly miscast, spectacularly sucks it up snapface style. As always though, Viggo delivers a strong performance. Full Story
To Justine – I know things are going to get better and better! Love, Liz Happy Birthday Elaine B from Canmore/Banff, AB or “the other Lainey” with love from your bestest friends. Heard it’s been somewhat sucky lately. Am attaching a reminder of a fun night from not too long ago to hopefully cheer you up just a little. Full Story
So far we’ve managed to stay out of Topshop and Uniqlo. But now it’s the weekend and it’s become unavoidable.
Forgot to mention yesterday something we heard at the Grey Goose Character & Cocktails event the other night. We were on the carpet interviewing arrivals. Elton John’s husband, David Furnish, who was hosting the event, was asked by the intrepid journalist right next to me what he thought of gay witchhunting. The follow up question was about Will Smith: there’s been a report this week that Will Smith is gay and that he’s hiding in the closet because he knows people won’t accept him. Can you comment on that David?
David’s intriguing answer?
When I saw them at our White Tie & Tiara Ball they seemed happy, professional, and very committed.
Interestingly generic choice of words, non?
Thanks for your patience this week during travel and time differences. Blog will be totally regular by Monday. Also appreciate the emails! Am sorry not to reply but am definitely reading everything.
Have a great weekend!
Yours in gossip,
PS. Rihanna and Beyonce are not warring bitches. Also not Liv. Liv has never had to make the leap.
PPS. He’s back! Will Ferrell’s Bush was CLASSIC. Now add Tina Fey’s Palin… it made our lives, non? Patritised!
My favourite game! Drawing conclusions based on nothing but the analysis of a photo – last night in New York at the Fashion Group International Night of the Stars awards… JLo looking very Maid in Manhattan, sucked in snug and sexy with her Spanx, arriving with her husband Marc Anthony. Check her out, soaking up the spotlight, preening for the cameras. Full Story
A bonus blind riddle for this week. Short and smutty. They’re best friends and they say best friends only… But they sleep in the same bed when they’re on holiday. Duana and I have been sharing a king bed during our European travels but that’s because we’re poor. If we could afford it? Please. Full Story
The Olsens were on Oprah yesterday – most boring interview ever. Seriously… You’d think the Mighty Opes would slap her big stick around more often, non? She’s Oprah. She could have asked them whatever she wanted to. Instead though, Oprah decided to throw softballs and spent too much time discussing with Mary Kate and Ashley what they like for breakfast.

He went out to a gallery last night with RDJ and Jude Law – male bonding as a release after a long day’s work on set. As I mentioned yesterday, here in London, it’s pro-Guy all the way. The classic obnoxious American superstar and the unassuming, low key, middle class British boy who is fighting back against her… What’s interesting though is that it’s pretty common knowledge Guy’s background.

When it comes to his commitment to ONEXONE, Matt Damon is nothing short of amazing. He has been involved with the organisation in Canada for 3 years and is now taking ONEXONE to the US, launching the inaugural ONEXONE gala dinner in San Francisco last night and bringing Lucy along with him. As always, he worked the carpet and the media line for as long as it took to get the message across, stopping for every outlet, posing for every photo, busting his ass to give back. Full Story
Britney took her boys to the pumpkin patch yesterday to prepare for Halloween. I have a friend who’s dressing up as fried chicken with a gurney strapped to his back… is that wrong? We are depraved. But then again… The first is the photo Britney posted on her own website – she’s standing with her kids on display beamed out to millions and millions of her fans. Full Story
