Kim Basinger turned 55 this week. And still she looks younger than Nicole Kidman, right? I hope my body’s that tight at 55. She doesn’t seem overly hungry either. Must be good genes. This is Kim last night at the premiere of While She Was Out with Leonardo DiCaprio’s bestie Lukas Haas. Full Story

Not enough Jon Hamm, right? Well, he’s on hiatus from Mad Men. The good news is it doesn’t mean he’s not busy. Word is he’s joining 30 Rock as Liz Lemon’s love interest. And you can see him on Friday in the Day the Earth Stood Still. Check him out with his girlfriend on the carpet last night at the premiere. Full Story

They bought it

Tom’s tour of Toronto – a resounding success. But first the new cover of People Magazine: MiniVan friendly, good hair, that famous smile, a glimpse of Little Sci, and the tantalising prospect of seeing the GMD’s personal family photos. Please. It’s brilliant. They will eat this sh-t up. Full Story

The real star of the movie

Last night at the premiere of the Day the Earth Stood Still – Keanu Reeves walked the carpet, spoke with the press, quietly promoted his movie. And then Will Smith and family came along and owned the rest. Will’s son Jaden stars alongside Keanu and Jennifer Connelly. Didn’t see any photos of Jennifer’s husband Paul Bettany. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Was a star studded night at the Benjamin Button premiere. Even Jennifer Lopez showed up to support the Brange. Of course she tried to outshine them. Amazing.

As for the GMD in Toronto, valiantly trying to promote Valkyrie – although his immediate objective will probably not be met, it’s actually not a bad strategy long term, at least where yesterday was concerned. At MuchMusic and MTV Canada he was gracious, he was game for anything, he was willing to embarrass himself dancing, he signed autographs for fans in the freezing cold, and…apparently he has great skin? This is what I’m hearing from up close. Compare that to the little twats like Lindsay Lohan who can’t be bothered to mingle with fans showing up to buy her overpriced leggings and you end up appreciating that, at the very least, the wee GMD knows about work ethic. More Tom to come today. He’s Live @ eTalk and then The Hour. Keep you posted…

Tuesday – am online all day.

Yours in gossip,


More profundity from a douchebag groupie

The UK Daily Mirror is claiming an exclusive with Jennifer Aniston. Take with a grain of salt but let’s run with it for now… Because the profundity of her profoundness is just too good to ignore. Apparently she talks about John Mayer. No. Actually… She gushes about John Mayer. "He's a rare one. Full Story

Last night’s Gossip Girl made up for the Humphrey. The word Humphrey is now synonymous with ass. And now we have to wait til January f-cking 5th for a new episode. Gah! Does anyone care about anything other than Chuck and Blair? Leighton Meester makes my life. No. Leighton Meester is my life. Full Story

Ausiello is reporting exclusively that TR Knight has asked ABC to release him from Grey’s Anatomy. Why? Because the show sucks sh-t. Right now TR remains dutifully employed but has been unhappy with his storyline for some time. Full Story

Sexier in sweats

Not saying it to sound like a bra burner either. To me, this is Porny at her sexiest. Super casual, dressed down, no makeup to trannify her features – Jessica Simpson has a pretty face. A very pretty face. She doesn’t need to hitch her tits up to her eyeballs or Texas curl her hair, so when she strips down the adornments, the real Jess is the most attractive Jess. Full Story
