Dear Gossips,

Was at the Jennifer’s Body Midnight Madness premiere last night at TIFF and ended up fangirling over Diablo Cody. Every girl there however was fangirling over Adam Brody who has pretty much disappeared since Seth Cohen. But they remember. And they went batsh-t. And he almost eclipsed Megan Fox on her own carpet. My impression on the tongue and thumb later.

So TIFF is underway, and all the fashion people are aflutter in New York and the MTV VMAs are on Sunday and it’s balls to the wall gossip to start the school year and during the festival it’s always party > sleep. Which is why there are even more typos than usual today. Have been guzzling Vitamin Water Rescue since I stumbled home not too long ago but please know it’s vodka blogging today. And probably will be for the next week.

Friday – am posting in between screenings and shoots and Clooney’s carpet and his premiere party and then the Artists for Peace & Justice event hosted by Paul Haggis and Olivia Wilde in support of Project Haiti. Haiti is the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere- a place where 250 children die each week and 80 per cent of the population lives in poverty. Click here for more information. Demi Moore is coming. I need to see that up close.

Have a great weekend!

Yours in gossip,


PS. Come visit our etalk photo wall at Teatro Verde. We’re there every day – today at noon Ben Mulroney and Tanya Kim will be hanging out and filming the show. TK’s wardrobe is crazy right now. Yeah I’m jealous too. On Sunday it’ll be Traci Melchor and me gossiping – we agree on nothing. Teatro Verde at noon. Join us and we can all talk smack together.

Ryan Reynolds will host one of the first 4 episodes of Saturday Night Live this season. Don’t ask me to tell you which one because I’m too lazy today to look it up, especially not for him. Can’t wait to see his foundation face. If you’re new to this site, please click here Full Story

This day has kicked my ass so far. Press screening for Up In The Air at 11:30am, then shoots, then voice overs, and now am finally back at my laptop for a couple of hours before heading to Clooney’s carpets – this time for The Men Who Stare At Goats. Quick note about Up In The Air – loved. Full Story

TIFF IT Lounge Gift Bag Giveaway!

Corny as this sounds, this blog would be nothing without you coming to visit every day. Some of you have been visiting for years. This is my 4th TIFF – thank you, love you, owe you for helping to make it happen. As long time readers know, it’s policy not to keep event gift bags. Full Story

The Flat Chest Advantage

Lainey Posted by Lainey at September 11, 2009 09:21:36 September 11, 2009 09:21:36

I'm about to moan about my tits again. If you don't like it my vodka says sorry. It's not like I don't appreciate a great rack - of course I do. If Salma Hayek wants to yell profanities at me in Spanish wearing just her bra I'm lining up. But there are advantages and disadvantages to full and flat. Full Story

Smutty Tingles

More shoots = more Tingles Jacek edition. Lainey corrected me on my suggestion yesterday that Gwen’s hair is like my mother wore it. But what do I know about hair styles. More Lainey content to follow along with a kick-ass giveaway. Jacek.

I seriously thought he was at Madame Tussaud’s (Dlisted)

Courtney Love and Lilo…becoming the same person are they not? (The Superficial)

Blogs and bikinis keep this chick on the D list and away from a career at Walmart (Hollywood Tuna)

This chick is way out of Screechy Levine’s league. Hot. Shame. (Just Jared)

Halle Berry dripped mustard on herself and then went shopping. OK maybe not. But it is this stylish? (Pop Sugar)

Pene’s bump more visible here? (Drunken Stepfather site NSFW)

Robin honoured

Lainey Posted by Lainey at September 11, 2009 08:35:33 September 11, 2009 08:35:33

At the Deauville Film Festival yesterday and also at the premiere of The Private Lives of Pippa Lee with Rebecca Miller. Robin Wright looks amazing, non? Total photo assumption, of course, but it’s like we never saw her this relaxed, open, and enthusiastic in pictures when she was with Sean Penn. Full Story

The George Mob

Everyone here in Toronto is on high Clooney alert. Even though he hasn’t travelled more than 3 blocks from his hotel since arriving, he cannot go anywhere on foot. Must be in a car from stop to stop, even if it’s only 100 yards, not because he’s high maintenance but because it’s a security issue. Full Story

Clever Penelope

Lainey Posted by Lainey at September 11, 2009 07:32:39 September 11, 2009 07:32:39

She is determined to hide this pregnancy for as long as she can. Penelope Cruz’s Broken Embraces screened at TIFF last night and Pene picked the perfect dress to hide the burgeoning bump. It’s beautifully cut, non? Drapes well, is still flattering, shows off her best assets: Those legs. Full Story

What In The What!?

Lainey Posted by Lainey at September 11, 2009 07:24:40 September 11, 2009 07:24:40

Is this the latest figure to be inducted into London’s Madame Tussauds? Nope, it’s just Victoria Beckham coming out of her Mattel box for the night to do a t-shirt signing at Bergdorf Goodman for New York’s Fashion Week. Seriously, all the fuss about the Great Pacific Garbage Patch could just be a sighting of Posh doing the backstroke in the ocean. Full Story

Opening Creation

Lainey Posted by Lainey at September 11, 2009 07:10:15 September 11, 2009 07:10:15

Jennifer Connelly looks beautiful IN SPITE of that dress. Jacek loves it of course because of the see-through breasts. This is the problem. It’s not just that it isn’t photographing with the light, it’s also that it’s not a particularly great fit. The material clings awkwardly around her chest, looks cheap. Full Story
