Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie attended a very low key screening of The Curious Case of Benjamin Button last night in New Orleans. Button has been described as a love letter to the city and the film is currently receiving very warm reviews in advance of its December 25th release. As you’d expect the Brange will be hitting the carpet hard in tandem to support its Oscar run. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

If you need to get rid of the taste of ass cheese in your mouth from too much Twilight or make up for the colossal Fail of dazzling sparkles, Slumdog Millionaire is your answer. A fist pump of a movie. A movie you’ll leave feeling good about feeling sappy. And full of hugs. It deserves to be seen over and over again. A movie worthy of my husband missing Sunday Night Football.

And then we came home for Britney’s documentary. Oh Britney…

More on that later.

It’s Monday. Am online all day. Welcome back if you’ve missed several pages over US Thanksgiving. Scroll down, click on View More Articles, get caught up!

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

Granny clutches her womb

Lainey Posted by Lainey at December 1, 2008 16:59:26 December 1, 2008 16:59:26

Again? Not sure. But don’t put it past her to make you think it. Last time she was “pregnant”, Granny Freeze Nicole Kidman made a point, always, of using her hand to draw attention to the fact that she was indeed roasting a Sunday inside her womb. Tonight in Paris at the premiere of Australia, she was at it again… We get it. Full Story

Or vice versa? Something seems off. What is it? This is Penelope Cruz today in New York for World AIDS Day at the Diamond is Forever Unbreakable Kiss Installation in support of the Elton John AIDS Foundation. Pene’s been keeping it low key lately, hard at work on Nine in London for much of the Fall, now Spanish gossips are reporting she and Javier Bardem are through, primarily because of conflicting work schedules – he backed out of Nine paving the way for Daniel Day Lewis – and also because she supposedly wants a baby and he doesn’t. Full Story

Everyone makes out with everyone else…

In high school, at least once. And definitely the case on the Upper East Side. So according to W Magazine sources, Ed Westwick and Jessica Szohr, costars on Gossip Girl, were spotted at the airport in Dallas sharing a few stolen moments – kissing, touching, flirting – even though they had already been recognised by fans and squealy girls. Full Story

Travolty takes a Turkish bath

We are balls deep in a f-cking recession and John Travolty decides to fly his private plane, with 3 passengers, all the way to Turkey to partake in a little bath time. Apparently he stayed at the Four Seasons in Sultanahmet, the express purpose of the trip was to check out the world famous “hamams” of Istanbul. Full Story

The Year of Tina Fey

Lainey Posted by Lainey at December 1, 2008 11:40:01 December 1, 2008 11:40:01

Yeah it was. Would you walk away from a night with David Beckham to be friends with Tina Fey? Yeah I would. Is Tina Fey > Oprah Winfrey? Yeah she is. MUCH. But for all the “you go girl” ballyhooing that goes on all the time, the estrogen empowerment movement, those MiniVan Majority screechers ready to rip their bras off, sitting in their plush seats at Harpo Studios, do girls really support girls? Especially Quality Girls? Because if that were the case, why aren’t more girls watching 30 Rock? Bet you more girls have watched those f-cking idiots on the Hills than have watched 30 Rock. Full Story

The expanding Taupes

Lainey Posted by Lainey at December 1, 2008 10:28:59 December 1, 2008 10:28:59

The Afflecks arrived yesterday in LA from whereabouts unknown. Ben’s still wearing his hair closely cropped, Taupe’s sweater is another dreary winner, and little Violet, 3 today, is still as happy and as beguiling as ever, the most interesting person in her family. Am told the Taupes were very loving with one another on this occasion. Full Story

MC Bye Good

Remember last week when it was reported that Joaquin Phoenix jumped the stage at some club and threw down a few rhymes? Thank the good Shiloh someone had the presence of mind to video it. Here he is, MC Bye Good, sucking the largest ass donkey sh-t of all time. How does someone become such a loser? How did Joaquin Phoenix, formerly the #1 spot on the Freebie Five, how did he become P Diddy? Apparently Casey Affleck is shooting all of this for his doc. Full Story
