Christian Bale and his wife Sibi last night at the premiere – look at him touching his lips. Touch my lips too! He does have a lip thing, non? Like a lisp… much more pronounced as the Batman than as Bruce Wayne. The Batman… must be that I’m a comic book neophyte but throughout the film it was “The Batman”, always preceded by the “the”. Full Story

Star-studded attendance last night on The Dark Knight black carpet including Gary Oldman and Aaron Eckhart – both quivering! – and also Naomi Watts who arrived with boyfriend and baby-father Liev Schreiber though both slipped inside right away. Michelle Williams, as expected, was not there. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

It’s the question Brangelunatics will be asking themselves, and each other, for decades to come:

The day the Holy Twins joined the Chosen One to form the new Trinity – Where were you on July 12, 2008?

“I was at home working on my Shiloh scrapbook,” they’ll say, “and time actually stopped.”

Like even the laws of planetary motion had to concede to the whim of the double deities. Indeed, the world came to a gentle but authoritative stop on Saturday as the freaks rushed the web, summoned to pledge their devotion and to do Their bidding, for there is no rest for the divine...which is why cubicles everywhere are empty today as all Brangelunatics are busy at worship.

The more sane among us however are looking forward to Friday: a date with The Dark Knight. Do you have a date with The Dark Knight?

It’s Monday – new posts all day, check back often.

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

Bonus Knight

Tonight is the NYC premiere of The Dark Knight. Bonus Bale photos – Christian and his wife Sibi walking around the city surrounded by fans and photographers. It is a very rare sighting. They are intensely private, little is known about him off camera. But I’ve spoken with him before on a carpet, and had a chance to observe them together at a private party. Full Story

The Week of The Dark Knight

Just got back from a screening of The Dark Knight (IMAX). Will not bother reviewing it since you can read any number of reviews about Heath Ledger’s brilliance anywhere on the web with one quick click. Just see it. That’s all. Focusing instead on commentary that film critics are too high brow to note. Full Story

Not a day over 30

Salma Hayek turns 42 in September. Bitch doesn’t look a day over 30. And next to Granny Freeze Nicole Kidman, Salma could pass for a zygote. Seriously... that skin is amazing! Salma went shopping yesterday in Malibu with baby Valentina, 9 months old. You will note, Salma did NOT pimp her kid pics off to a tabloid. Full Story

Every Ewan Works

Blonde, brown, dirty, clean...whatever, I don’t care. I’ll take Ewan McGregor any way he comes. But this way might be my all time favourite. His pants. The jacket. The hair. His skin. Me quiver. This is Ewan on Friday in Beverly Hills promoting his Long Way Down at the Summer TCA session - Ewan shot the doc last year chronicling the 85 days he spent on motorcycle with a friend, travelling 15,000 miles from John O’Groats in Scotland to Cape Town, South Africa. Full Story

Usher performed in Nigeria on Friday at Thisday’s 3rd Africa Rising Festival and treated the audience to several crotch grabs. Lameness. Kinda like his career. Which might be why he’s trying to reassert his sexy. But showbiz is fickle. Usher went away for a couple of years, married a woman everybody hates, became a father. Full Story

Jake Gyllenhaal in Paris heading to a restaurant with Reese Witherspoon hiding his new long hair under a cap and looking a sexy beast in stripes. So when did Jakey G get cool? Jakey G is hot, no doubt, but Jakey G was never cool. Now Jakey G is hot AND cool. Must be the pants. Check it out – Jakey G is actually wearing his pants right. Full Story
