Several new titles were added to the Toronto International Film Festival schedule this week including Dorian Gray with Ben Barnes (yum), and the Private Lives of Pippa Lee so Keanu Reeves could come home. There’s also a Coen Brother’s film and yet another Colin Farrell film Triage which means Colin would be in town to support two projects this festival, keeping him in Toronto longer? Michelle already sent an email to me and Duana wondering if we’ll be throwing down at an afterparty somewhere. Full Story

Twi-Hards were in distress yesterday, not over Robert Pattinson for a change, but because Rachelle Lefevre was coldheartedly booted out of the saga and replaced by Bryce Dallas Howard. Poor Bryce. You know how crazy those losers can get. Hopefully they won’t hate on her too hard. It’s not her fault. Full Story

No chicken, no video, but books! GOOPy’s back to books! And it’s not a bad list either. Once again, Gwyneth Paltrow solicited reading recommendations from her well connected friends – when she casually throws down their credentials it’s better than namedropping – in preparation for what she calls some holiday time in August. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Want to look good naked?

Those of you in the UK are well familiar with the show…and it’s coming to Canada! How To Look Good Naked encourages women to embrace their curves, their lives, and learn how to best show off their figures – without surgery. And … unlike so much of the f-ckery on television these days, it’s not for 20 year olds.

How To Look Good Naked will air on the W Network and is currently casting, on the hunt for real Canadian women aged 25 – 60. Interested? Click here first for all the details including application guidelines. Can’t wait to see you take your clothes off!

Wednesday – will be blogging all day. Easy Twi-Hards, we’ll get to the casting shakeup in a bit. Scroll down if you missed the articles yesterday on kinky George Clooney and Jonathan Rhys Meyers.

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

PS. Nicole Richie was not in the limo.

PPS. At the eTalk photo shoot on Saturday we tried out a fake bob, tucked all my hair underneath with pins. Loved it at the time, in real life the way it moved around, but hate it in the stills. HATE. Jacek isn’t down with it either. Thoughts? What’s up Traci Melchor!!!
