A live Angelina Jolie experience is like no other. Not only because she herself is such a force but also because of what happens to the people who happen to be moved by her force. We sat there in the Kung Fu Panda presser laughing our asses off at grown men launching themselves into peril for a glimpse of the Jolie. Full Story

You have to applaud her effort, non? She is waging a war she can’t win but still she won’t give up. As you know, Angelina Jolie confirmed yesterday that she is indeed expecting two royal arrivals. Needless to say, as is the case with any headline related to the Pitts, it was the biggest news in gossip leaving every other story, including Jennifer Aniston’s romance with John Mayer, in the dust. Full Story

Blindness at Cannes

I’m at the Martinez right now writing this, 6 or 7 feet away from Julianne Moore who is sitting down for roundtable interviews for Blindness. Have to restrain myself from running over to hug her. She’s been at it for 3 hours, surrounded by a large number of journalists questioning and pushing and she has been gracious and sweet and endearing and forthcoming the whole time. Full Story

No Mojo at Blindness

There was a time when Mischa Barton was considered a style girl. She and Nicole Richie had a funky friends together kinda thing going on that used to be pretty cute. Then again, I’m a Mischa apologist. I liked the weird moccasins, she did have a certain “it”. But lately? Longer than lately? Mischa has lost her mojo. Full Story

Cate at Blindness

Cate Blanchett attended the opening gala at Cannes for Blindness last night. This is not a forgiving colour. Not a colour for a woman four weeks after giving birth who might have some insecurities. Clearly, Cate Blanchett is not that woman. Of course she isn’t. Cate is here for Indiana Jones. Full Story

Gorgessity at Blindness

Natalie Portman last night at the gala. You think she’s beautiful in pictures? Well in person it’s even more. It’s not just the face – the dress of course was perfection – but it’s Natalie as a package. The way she moves, the way she walks, the way she holds herself… She is little, delicate, so graceful, an effortless mix of vulnerable but strong, and confident – confidence that comes from growth and experience rather than privilege … unlike my Gwyneth, for example. Full Story

Take a look at this cartoon. Do you want to be this cartoon??? Yes, we all want to stay young forever. And I will do what it takes to look 30 forever. But I"m also lazy AND chicken. So hell, I"ll scrub my face with blue algae that stinks of dog plaque if it means no needles and no doctors. Fortunately for the squeamish though, there are advancements in beauty products that are making it possible. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

4 fllights from hell and stuck in airport limbo for too long. Have just arrived in Nice after 27 hrs of travel, am en route to Cannes and will post as soon as possible before dashing to festival opening gala. Please check back in a bit. Thank Xenu for blackberries!

So sorry for the delay. Thank you, love you, owe you.

UPDATED:

Smut from Cannes! The Festival kicks off tonight, we had several flights from hell but better times are ahead because for the next two weeks, the Riviera is celebrity central! Celebrities and Eurotrash – it’s the best combination!

 

Will be blogging every day between shoots and interviews and screenings and even on weekends. Please do check back often. Attached – Cannes jury member Natalie Portman looking ridiculously beautiful on the Croisette yesterday and at the Martinez being greeted affectionately by a very good friend. Interestingly enough, Gael Garcia Bernal is here. His movie Blindness – the gala premiere is tonight.

 

Sean Penn is chairing the jury this year and his no longer estranged wife Robin Wright Penn has a film showing here too.

 

But first – Jen, John, and Norman and Jessica Simpson single again? Poor thing. She cursed herself with that Glamour interview. More on that later.

 

Gala starts soon. Am posting as much as I can before we have to leave and throughout the night.

 

Yours in gossip,

 

Lainey

 

PS. Typos galore. Am wrecked from airport limbo and have decided to replace water with champagne. Please excuse atrocious writing.
