Considering she has the paps on speed dial, a TRULY candid photo these days of Shelf Ass Jessica Biel is a rare commodity. Which is why these are so delightful. It’s Shelfy in May after a long delay at the airport looking the worst, like, ever. And she knows it. And she’s pissed. She’s pissed because she did not plan this. Full Story

To drive again! Oh the dramatics whenever she was behind the wheel. Needless to say, when her father took control, he also banned her from driving. There’s a sad moment in For The Record when they haul her out to the middle of nowhere and she’s like where y’all takin’ me? and everyone’s in on the surprise and it turns out they brought her to some remote stretch of road where her car was waiting for her and she just drove and drove and drove and was “allowed to be free” again. Full Story

The Beckhams arrived this weekend. And, in signature Posh fashion, her entrances were loud, dramatic, and (in her mind) very, very fashionable. They went out for dinner, hosted by Italian celebrities, she showed off her bones making everyone else feel fat, they rocked matching haircuts (exactly, right?), they attended David’s press conference, and contrary to reports last week, Becks was indeed interviewed by the beautiful Ilaria D'Amico who apparently flirted with him constantly during their sit-down Full Story

Jakey G came home for his birthday, is hopefully staying for the holidays with Reese and her kids while Ryan Phillippe’s carby face is in Australia with Abbie Cornish. As you can see, they celebrated with the paps by enjoying a candlelit dinner at Giorgio Baldi in Santa Monica the other night, ensuring one last box office push for Four Christmases which has already grossed over $100 million and could see another surge this week as everyone takes time off and heads to the cinema. Full Story

Friends with everyone

My Gwyneth is hard to handle among the common folk. Most of you can’t stand her. Because she’s never tried to make you like her. Among celebrities though, Gwyneth is friends with almost everyone from Beyonce and Jay-Z to Madonna to European royalty to Steven Spielberg and Lorne Michaels adores her (apparently one of a few actresses with standing invitation to come back to Saturday Night Live whenever) and she’s friendly with the girls too – Cam and Cate and all the Kates and Liv and now Penelope Cruz. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

As expected, we were all invited to celebrate KatE’s birthday with her last night as the GMD arranged for a massive cake to be wheeled out on stage after her performance on Broadway with cast members imploring the audience to sing along while her Midge husband waited anxiously in LA to hear about her reaction, that strange clown smile now glued permanently onto his new waxy face which, to be fair, is infinitely LESS frightening than Priscilla Presley’s. Photos of both of them at the Hollywood premiere of Valkyrie are attached.

It’s Friday. Ugh. Last weekend to Christmas shop and am not finished. Hope yours is better than mine!

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

PS Tiger Woods is not Cuba. Josh Brolin isn’t Chocolate.

No wonder he wasn’t nominated

See? Ebola’s virus almost never, ever fails. NO ONE is immune. Including Leonardo DiCaprio who was NOT nominated for a Screen Actors Guild Award this week. Why not? Because he was at Ebola Paris Hilton’s the other night with Kevin Connolly who, as you know, used to date Ebola’s sister Nicky. Full Story

Worst of 2008: Clooney & Larson at the Oscars

It was a big statement. Dating less than a year, suddenly Hollywood’s most eligible bachelor brings his girl of the moment, acquired from Las Vegas, to the most high profile event of the year, the most coveted carpet, the most exclusive event…the Oscars. Only to send her to the curb, with a cold back of the hand, a couple months later, pretty much watching over her in the middle of the night as she packed up her sh-t and vacated his house. Full Story

January 11th. The Golden Globe Awards. It’s a BIG year with BIG names. As if the Brange alone was not enough, there’s the GMD and KatE, Leo and Kate Winslet and Meryl and Colin Farrell and RDJ and Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem AND Steven Spielberg is getting the Cecil B Demille… and now the Hollywood Foreign Press Association is starting to announce presenters. Full Story
