This is the title of the email I received from Michelle a short while ago sent to me and Duana. Because the Toronto International Film Festival has just made its first major announcement about the features this year. And Colin Farrell is coming back to TIFF. Last time he eyef-cked Sasha and she walked away. Full Story

Bruno won the box office this weekend with a $30 million opening, further securing Sacha Baron Cohen’s status as a major power player in Hollywood. Did you see Bruno? I have not yet. Will do this week. But I did receive this very interesting message from Ljubica below: So, my husband I went to see Bruno on Saturday (we live in Phoenix, but we are from Toronto). Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Harry Potter, Bill Nighy, great food at Frank, sequins, socks, and accessories at Topshop, skinny jeans at Uniqlo, a great travel sweater on sale at Ted Baker…five days in New York could not have been more fun. Except when I arrived at the airport on Sunday afternoon, they told me my flight was cancelled. Oh. Poor me, stuck here.

So if you’re reading this on Monday morning, I’m most likely on a plane, headed back to Vancouver. Straight from the airport, I’m heading directly to a shoot – and even Jacek can’t wait for this one: will be demo’ing EA’s new games, and going head to head against Venus Williams and Dwight Howard. Will need some Felix Felicitas.

As such, am pre-writing the first part of today’s column to be posted while I’m en route, and will continue blogging when the shoot is over. Articles will include thoughts on Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince and my interviews with the HP cast from Friday. Also… meeting Bill Nighy. I am in love.

Yours in gossip,

In Vancouver! Thanks to Andrea for the photo – an exclusive shot of Zac Efron arriving in Vancouver on Saturday. Lippy is in town to shoot The Death and Life of Charlie St Cloud for the summer until the fall. Which means his LipGloss contingent will go head to head against Robert Pattinson and the vampires when they return to Vancouver in August to work on Eclipse. Full Story

Karl: surrounded by young hotness

It’s been a day. Am still sick, dog tired, but a little Karl to bring things to a close makes everything worthwhile. This is Karl the other day in St Tropez. It’s summertime. And he’s wearing long sleeves and those leather gloves. Apparently Karl has not only successful controlled his appetite, he also has blocked his sweat glands. Full Story
