Dear Gossips,

While Laura was loving Harry yesterday (more on that later) I was worshipping the Grand Master at a media screening of Valentino: the Last Emperor. So. F-cking. Good. Valentino opens in Canada on July 10th and you MUST see. For the drama, and the theatrics, his tantrums, his brilliant facial expressions, the work of an artist, the gowns (oh my god the gowns!), and also for the love story – a 50 year love story between Mr Valentino and his constant companion Giancarlo Giammetti. Forget the brainless drivel from Transformers. After you support Johnny Depp at Public Enemies, go spend 2 hours with Valentino. I promise, you will love.

And heads up to those who were at S.M.U.T.:

Did you pose for FASHION Magazine? A few of you have written to ask about your covers. All photos and covers can be accessed on the FASHION website – click here. You are ALL gorgeous. And NONE of you had Twilight tattoos.


Thanks to those who’ve sent me this link and for those who initially did not believe the crazyassness of the Twilight Nation, now you can see it, um, in the flesh. Do you want one for yourself? If you say no, you must be Chinese.

I posted late in the day yesterday including some Brad Pitt hotness and more child pimping from the Jonas and Cyrus families. Scroll down for more.

Have a great weekend and Happy 4th to our friends in America!



One more reason…

If you needed one to convince you to see Public Enemies this weekend. Support the Movie Star. Public Enemies premiered in London earlier this week…and while in town, Johnny Depp dropped in by surprise in full Captain Jack Sparrow costume to visit the sick kids at Great Ormond Street Hospital where his daughter Lily-Rose was treated a couple of years ago. Full Story

Canadian in Berlin

Canada Day was July 1st but we’ll still be celebrating this weekend. And what better way to kick it off? Here’s our legend, the icon, the poet, the best, in Berlin on Thursday arriving in advance of an evening show. He’s been touring all year (sigh, he needs the money, and still donated $200K to the Australian fire relief), will turn 75 in the fall, and will celebrate his birthday with a show in Barcelona. Full Story

Jude Law’s happy summer

These are happy days for Jude Law. He’s receiving rave reviews for his Hamlet – just announced: the production will be staged on Broadway this fall – and he just finished work on a big budget movie that’s hoping to dominate the holiday box office, and the squiggle on his head doesn’t seem to be thinning anymore, and… Does he have a new piece? Last night after his performance, Jude took a lady out for dinner. Full Story

Laura loved Harry 6

My friend and producer Laura went to the media screening for Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince yesterday in Toronto and many of you wrote in the afternoon wondering about her reaction. The verdict: it’s good. It’s very, very good. I don’t mind spoilers so she gave me most of the details but I won’t ruin it for you here. Full Story

GOOPy green with Cammie D

Lainey Posted by Lainey at July 3, 2009 08:04:29 July 3, 2009 08:04:29

The latest GOOP newsletter doesn’t suck. This is because there are no recipes. Or book recommendations on parenting for judgy moms to use to critique the other ladies at playgroup. Nope. This week’s GOOP is about green. Love the Stella McCartney organic collection (but her site needs bigger font), LOVE the Muji socks, definitely want a Solio Solar charger since I have ten thousand phones and blackberries and iPods, and then there’s Cameron Diaz. Full Story

Marion & Mom

Paris premiere of Public Enemies yesterday. Christian Bale does not seem to be accompanying Johnny Depp and Marion Cotillard on the European leg of promotion. They must not think they need him. Have you seen it yet? Most of you who have seen it have written to say that you love it. Good! It’s a movie featuring real actors and real acting. Full Story

You look like your ex-boyfriend

It’s Katie Holmes, in Melbourne, beginning work on Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark. In leggings, glasses, and a toque if you squint you can see Josh Hartnett. Interestingly enough, she was seeing Josh Hartnett just before the GMD captured her. And there are still a few of you who are convinced that Little Sci is actually a Hartnett. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince advance screenings have been taking place the last few days and early word is that…

It’s f-cking amazing.

Laura, bitch, is seeing it this morning. Gah! I rarely wish I still lived in Toronto. But today I do. Today I’d be with her and we’d be holding each other at the very end, sobbing. Will let you know her thoughts later.

No Harry for me but Valentino will do as a consolation. Am screening the Last Emperor, spending a couple of hours this morning with the Orange one. Can’t wait!

Yesterday afternoon I walked off the golf course to find out that the oldest Vagina Virgin Kevin Jonas is engaged. What if he doesn’t like Vagina Sex? 21 is so young. What’s the rush?

It’s Thursday. Holiday over. Full blog schedule all day. Check back often.

Yours in gossip,
