The secret behind those enigmatic half smile/half grimaces? We found out this year … It’s prunes! “Every time they pose and smile, they say the word ‘prune’.” Who knew? That prunes are good for more than just poo? Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen figured it out – this is why they’re always so puckered. Full Story

He did last night. He touched 45 heads. On Jimmy Kimmel live. Oh Jimmy. I love you. Did you watch? His teeth! They’re so white! So Jimmy has this competition where he faces off against his guest – who can touch the most heads in 30 seconds? Needless to say, Tom Cruise was very, very good at head touching. Full Story

LipGloss took his girlfriend shopping yesterday with greasy hair and a grey shirt. Seen it? Of course you have. On Robert Pattinson. Only Robert Pattinson doesn’t iron his clothes and pull and tuck every perfect corner. Maybe in a couple of years if he stays in LA but…there is hope. Rob went home for the holidays. Full Story

Shelfy sucks at funny

Funny or Die is usually spot on with their hilarious celebrity videos. Usually. Even, gulp, Ebola Paris Hilton’s message to McCain was admittedly pretty funny. So a real actor like Jessica Biel, all serious and sh-t, trying to stake her claim, you’d think at the very least she’d be better than Ebola, right? Wrong. Full Story

Shopping cures all

Samantha Ronson thanked fans on her blog for their concern about her hospitalisation this weekend: "Thanks for all your messages. I'm home and all good. Was just pretty exhausted from traveling and working too much to buy Chanukah gifts and my Jewish mother was worried about me.” Right. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Finally saw Milk and Sean Penn gets my vote. He is worth the price of admission. And more. And much worthier of your time than, say, Yes Man or Seven Pounds which topped the box office respectively, though modestly, this weekend. Does Jim Carrey get to make the same movie over and over again and still be called an artist? Like Nicolas Cage? Please.

If I can make it through Christmas – locked in a small cabin with family oh help – next week will be Benjamin Button. And you? Use the poll!

Monday – new posts all day. Check back often!

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

PS. Russell Crowe is not Cuba. Also not Tom Hanks. Or Rob Lowe. And Hugh Grant isn’t Chocolate.

“I am truly grateful for the honor that the Academy bestowed upon me last year. I did not feel that I was given the material this season to warrant an Emmy nomination and in an effort to maintain the integrity of the Academy organization, I withdrew my name from contention. In addition, I did not want to potentially take away an opportunity from an actress who was given such materials. Full Story

Best of 2008: Marion Cotillard wins Oscar

Everything about her that night. Oh my God her dress. And her hair. Of course her face. Her shock at winning over Julie Christie. Le sigh. I love her so much. And then seeing her in the press room, as she was asked to sing an Edith Piaf song that would express her emotion… Please. Two hundred cynical, tired, bitchy journalists were eating out of her hand back there. Full Story
